Fake Money, A “Strong” Dollar, And Gold Investing

| November 26, 2014 | Category: Investing
Fake Money, A “Strong” Dollar, And Gold Investing

The investment rationale for gold is the inverse of that for all paper currencies. Cheering for the rise in the dollar relative to other currencies, as measured by the DXY, is in our opinion seriously misplaced. The rise in the index is more a matter of sinking non-dollar currencies (or, more precisely, systemic subsidence) than an ascending dollar. No paper currency offers protection from monetary transgressions because of national borders: What happens in Europe, Japan, or China does not stay in Europe, Japan, or China. To function well, the global financial system must be seamless.

Gold Price Went Ballistic To $1,450 In Less Than 20 Minutes

Gold Price Went Ballistic To $1,450 In Less Than 20 Minutes

A glitch, a game or both? It is unclear what exactly happened, but the price of gold surged from $1,200 to $1,450 in just ten minutes, at least at some charts (not all). It was brought to our attention by Nick from Sharelynx. The USAGold.com website, for instance, shows the blip and a return to reality after some 20 minutes. As readers can see, the “glitch” was not erased afterwards. Probably this is just a glitch, but it would be interesting to see if some shorts have really been stopped out. Probably we will never find out!

Silver’s Bullish Fundamentals Driven By Solar Energy

Silver’s Bullish Fundamentals Driven By Solar Energy

With photovoltaic installations on the rise, silver demand is ready for a major surge. About 80 metric tons of the metal are needed to generate one gigawatt, or 1 million kilowatts, of electricity, enough to power a little over 90 typical American homes annually. In 2016, close to a million and a half metric tons of silver are expected to be needed to meet solar demand in the United States alone.

The Swiss Referendum On Gold: What’s Missing From The Debate

The Swiss Referendum On Gold: What’s Missing From The Debate

The problem of central bank overreach is certainly not isolated to Switzerland. Since the financial crisis 6 years ago, central banks around the world have interfered in and manipulated bond, foreign exchange, and equity markets on an unprecedented scale. These unelected institutions have actively redistributed wealth from one group to another and compete against one another to adjust the purchasing power of their national currency downwards relative to other nations without the knowledge of their populations. For over 3 years the SNB has been operating opaquely behind the scenes substituting another currency for its own, converted its citizen’s savings into EUR, and imposing a stealth tax on European imports without public consent.

Rising Gold And US Dollar. Will The Impossible Continue?

Rising Gold And US Dollar. Will The Impossible Continue?

In the last two weeks, we are seeing the impossible–a rise in the gold price and the US dollar. This isn’t as impossible as it seems–we’ve seen this before, from late 2009 to about mid-2010. It was a good time to be invested in gold equities. Notice that during the impossible trend in the past, gold and USDX never rose together for more than two consecutive weeks. The move was seemed to be a series of cycles and countercycles, over which both parameters increased. As I’ve argued previously, rising gold and US dollar is the most economically favourable environment for gold equities–particularly those with production. If the number of dollars you receive per unit of gold increases, and at the same time the value of those dollars increases, your revenue increase will reflect both inputs.

Infographic Explains Swiss Gold Referendum In Comprehensive Way

Infographic Explains Swiss Gold Referendum In Comprehensive Way

This infographic summarizes the upcoming Gold Referendum in Switzerland: Why is it important, what is at stake, why it could be a game changer and trend change. It also puts the Swiss gold reserves into perspective and compares, in relative terms, how Switzerland has much more gold per capita than any other country. However, it used to be an even bigger holder of the yellow metal. In 2000, the SNB held 2,500 tonnes of gold and it has also been the biggest national seller since.

Gold’s Upswing In November Amid A Lower Trend Line

Gold’s Upswing In November Amid A Lower Trend Line

There is clearly an upswing present since early November, but defining this upswing is a challenge so a broad in the Raff Regression Channel. It does a pretty good job of defining direction and accounting for volatility, which we are seeing now. The lower trend line ends around 112 and I will mark support here. The long-term trend for gold is still down and GLD has a big resistance zone in the 115-116.50 area.

Russia Grabs Another 18.7 Tonnes Of Gold In October From The Market

Taking all this together, it is clear that the Eastern gold demand is largely offsetting the Western disinterest. The real effects of this evolution will become clear once the interest from the West will heat up.

Peter Schiff is on Kitco News to comment on some of the most recent headlines surrounding the gold market and also to share his thoughts on the U.S. economy. The Euro Pacific CEO says the U.S. recovery isn’t real and adds that the dollar is only strong because all other currencies are weak.

Secret Advantage Of Holding Physical Gold And Silver

Secret Advantage Of Holding Physical Gold And Silver

Just as gold and silver held value during the inflation of the 70’s and 80’s, gold has today settled 56% higher and silver 51% higher since that Sunday night in 2008 when the world came face to face with economic annihilation. The dangers were not corrected, but only disguised with more paper debt. That makes a greater financial catastrophe possible, which could force transportation shutdowns, food shortages, lost jobs and other economic chaos, erasing that most important characteristic of money – confidence – in the dollar and other fiat currencies.

Swiss Gold Referendum: Impressions Of The Latest TV Debate

Claudio Grass, managing director at Global Gold Switzerland, provided some comments on the TV debate. He first noted that the authorities are increasingly showing a need to use the government owned TV stations to push the message that the gold backing would be a big mistake. He feels that authorities are becoming increasingly nervous.

How Gold And Silver’s Price Decline And Short Covering Was Manufactured

How Gold And Silver’s Price Decline And Short Covering Was Manufactured

I can peg JPMorgan’s formerly manipulative short position in COMEX silver as now being no more than 8000 contracts and quite probably even lower. Never, since acquiring the massive short position of Bear Stearns in 2008, has JPMorgan’s silver short position been lower. Considering how much physical metal I believe JPM has accumulated (SLV, Silver Eagles, etc.), JPMorgan has never been better positioned for a real upside move in silver.
