 Egon von Greyerz - Matterhorn AM
It never ceases to amaze me the lack of irony with which people talk about impending collapse of capitalism, and then tell us we should be really scared of socialism. Here in Britain we have had 30-40 years worth of free market de-regulated capitalism since Thatcher. But everyone keeps telling us we should be scared of returning to the 1970s. Jacob Rees Mogg would have us return to the Georgian / Victorian era i...

Fiat Money and Independence for Scotland  (6)
I normally like Hugo's articles but this is the most shameless attempt to promote a personal agenda by highjacking a current event I've ever seen. Does Hugo know anything about Scottish/English history? Simply saying Dr Johnson was well received is embarrassingly weak. Anti-English sentiment has run deep in Scotland pretty much forever. Even the romans had to build a bloody wall across the north of England to pr...

The Financial Times: Learn From German Central Bank and "Demand Physical Gold"  (1)
Impressive as it was that Germany demanded their gold back, they have been pretty spineless in their response to being told, 'not for seven years or so'. As one commentator pointed out, a default of that size to an Asian country may well have been taken as an act of war. Germany on the other hand appeared to make no official response whatsoever. They must have realised that the US has basically stolen it, and ...

The Silver Market in 2013  (12)
Can anyone make sense of this paragraph for me please??

"Whilst silver might appear to be a better buy than gold, it is in fact rarer than the yellow metal when it comes to investment purposes. Eric Sprott believes the ratio of investment grade silver to investment grade gold to be 3:1. Sprott calculates that there is in fact only 120 million ounces of gold and 350 million ounces of silver available fo...

A Shocking Allegation From Andrew Maguire: CFTC Must Respond Publicly, Or Answer To Congress  (10)
Do we really need more evidence? Co-ordinated computer trading attacks in the middle of the night. Falling PM prices despite unprecedented money printing and insatiable physical demand. Manipulation in the PM markets is no longer talked about as an idea promoted by a lunatic fringe. Many mainstream commentators now seem to grudgingly accept that it is likely...especially in the wake of LIBOR fixing and heavily p...

The U.K. Housing Bubble  (1)
It's like watching a particularly dumb animal, continually walking back to the electric fence to get zapped. Even worse if you live here, don't have a house, but have substantial savings. The government is definitely not on my side. Rental market is now so out of control you are practically forced to take out a mortgage using the government backed scheme. I really don't want to. I want to wait for house prices t...

"Not un-coincidentally"? Is that the same as coincidentally? :-)

Always enjoy the rants. Hope you're right. It's not easy being Noah! Was directly challenged by family member today...'What makes you cleverer than the UK Chancellor and all his economists? Why waste money on rent, with savings tied up in bullion when you could get a mortgage and 'own' your own home now?" Why indeed? How difficult it is t...

Reflections on "A Moral Obscenity": How Long Ago Was a War Against Syria Decided  (15)
Something occurred to me when I heard the 'moral obscenity' comment. If they decided some time back to go to war they must have weighed up the likely consequences. As with most middle east flare ups they would expect oil and gold price rises. If it's true that J.P. Morgan has been operating on behalf of the Federal reserve to suppress the gold price with its massive short position, then they would have known t...

Another Obituary for Gold  (7)
I spotted this today from Bloomberg. Someone has evidently paid them to talk down gold.

Much of the same material but this time suggesting that Hank Paulson and George Soros pulling money out of ETF's suddenly indicates they no longer have faith in gold. No mention of the fact that this may possibl...

BREAKING NEWS - "Massive Fire" JP MORGAN NYC gold deposit - Seen as False Flag to Create Force Majeu  (11)
Much ado about nothing. JP Morgan's vault is half a mile away. The fire brigade were called out to a building that is called the JP Morgan building for historical purposes despite no longer being used by them.

Bounce in Gold Is a Dead Cat – Fade The Rally  (10)
That's the spirit son. That's what I like to see. Expert analysis based not on fundamentals, not on what the Federal Reserve chief is actually doing right now
(faster QE than ever before in history)...but what he says he may or may not do at some unspecified time in the future. It must be reliable. After all why
would he lie?

Thanks for raising the biggest laugh of the day!

Only One Thing Matters For Gold Prices: There is No More QE  (5)
In the second last para you state: "Much of successful trading and investing depends on solely recognising and reacting to what is happening right now, rather than striving to predict how the world may look many years from now. Right now the Fed is not easing monetary policy...". In the following para you state: "In conclusion our message is simple; forget everything else, there is no more QE so gold prices are ...

Cultural Marxism: The Corruption of America  (7)
Yep. Fair enough. Not clear. By suggesting that the two 'Cultural Marxists' posited that Judaeo-christian religion had instilled the evil values of individualism, personal industry, family solidarity, monogamy, private property, patriotism and belief in a Creator God, he is necessarily stating the opposite...that all those things are true and good. Actually of that list, only belief in monogamy, family and a cre...

What an utter load of garbage!

"They posited that Western civilization, built as it was on the Judeo-Christian religion, had instilled evil values into man -- values of individualism, personal industry, family solidarity, monogamy, private property, patriotism, belief in a Creator God, etc."

So what....Jesus was a capitalist?! Apart from 'Blessed are the poor' and 'It's easier for a camel to ...

What’s next for gold  (10)
I have a question for James. I am a Goldmoney user. What are you going to do if the Comex goes down and the paper spot price system collapses? It clearly no longer represents the real value of silver. I only ask because Goldmoney uses the Spot price for buy and sell orders. Have you a contingency system for valuing buy and sell orders?

Is Gold a Disappointing "Safe Haven"  (3)

Re: "What must concern the central banks, which all consider gold as an important reserve asset, is the fact that institutional investors can play around with the gold price like this. It is in their interests to ensure that controls are placed on the buying and selling of gold so that private markets don’t play havoc with the gold price this way."

Interesting portrayal of Central banks as lofty n...

Gold Slam is a Massive Wealth Transfer from Our Pockets to the Banks  (7)
Well then we're back to Pirates of the Caribbean days. Simply shrug and say 'I buried it in a hole in the ground and I appear to have lost the map!'

Gold Slam is a Massive Wealth Transfer from Our Pockets to the Banks  (7)
Thanks for publishing this info. I find it astonishing that clued-up individuals in one night can plainly record instances of clear manipulation, which the regulators are incapable of finding after 4 years. The thing is....they are only able to make money through auto stop-loss mechanisms. If people didn't use them then this wouldn't have happened. In some senses the silver and gold press help and assist them in...

Silver Has Broken Down  (5)
Re: the shortage of silver. Hmmm! There is a gaping hole in the logic of much of the silver bug articles I read which worries me as someone who holds silver. You'll all be familiar with the argument. It says that the current combined industrial and investment demand for silver is only just met by the supply. Hence in such a small market, a small increase in 'investment demand' could lead to a huge upswing in pri...

If the law won't stop market rigging, what can we do  (5)
I agree wholeheartedly regarding removal of physical from the banking system. I'm wondering if there is another possible alternative for fighting manipulation within the Comex. Excuse my limited understanding of economics. It seems to me JP Morgan (and therefore the US government's position) is only made possible because of a prevailing movement in one direction. Like wind turbines pointing west in the UK they d...

Watch What Happens When a Nation Bans Guns  (14)
I'm sorry. What the frick has this got to do with gold? If Americans want to continue to own guns and live in one of the most dangerous societies on earth with one of the highest per capita murder rates then let them. I for one applaud Australia's efforts to move past their frontier/settler mentality origins, towards being a modern civilised society. I'm from England and we can pretty much count the number of ar...

Clint Eastwood and Disrespect  (49)
Writing from an English point of view...thank God some of you understand the difference between an 'ACTOR' and the roles he plays and real life. Here in Europe we watch US politics with a kind of amused horror. How can politics have ever become so simplistic that when an actor who has played sadistic hard men all his life, stands up and quotes from a film whilst criticising the party in power...everyone seems to...

Wyoming Prepares Doomsday Contingency Plans “In the Event of a Collapse in the United States”
Wondered why you're not getting many comments? BEcause there's a fucking MAcKeeper advert plastered across the middle of the comments box that can't be moved.

Meanwhile I'm crying laughing at the thought of Wyoming purchasing an aircraft carrier. Where are they going to park it?
