The #1 Question for Beginners in Precious Metals

The #1 Question for Beginners in Precious Metals

More new people may have made their first purchase of physical gold or silver in the past 4 months than in any four-month period in history. This sort of data isn’t reported and tracked. But if our experience as one of the nation’s largest precious metals dealers is representative, we believe that’s the case. We’ve never seen so much retail demand, and a big portion of the buyers are first timers. With the new wave of people entering the market comes a fundamental question lots of them have before they get started: What do I do with the metal after I buy it? Physical gold and silver are useful both as […]

Is America Headed for a Post-Apocalyptic Currency Collapse?

Is America Headed for a Post-Apocalyptic Currency Collapse?

Just when it seemed as though America may be turning the corner after months of lockdown… just when it seemed as though we were on a path to reopening and gradually returning to normalcy… just when the prospects of panic-induced social unrest seemed to be behind us… …America’s cities erupted into flames. Antifa and BLM-organized rioting, looting, violence, and mayhem have pushed cities across the country into pandemonium. Even if the insurrections are soon quelled – as President Donald Trump promised to do in a speech in front of the White House on Monday – the consequences won’t soon go away. Some epidemiologists seized on the protests to predict a […]

Social Unrest Rises as Confidence Falls

Social Unrest Rises as Confidence Falls

Protests egged on by the legacy media quickly devolved into large-scale riots and looting over the weekend in more than a dozen U.S. cities. Some important institutions have betrayed the public trust, and Americans facing quarantine and staggering unemployment have arrived at the boiling point. Meanwhile, the ranks of people buying gold and silver as a hedge against economic chaos and financial malfeasance swelled again in recent months. A new wave of Americans is grappling with what it means for Congress to spend trillions it doesn’t have. Or for Federal Reserve bankers to print trillions of electronic notes and hand them over to their friends on Wall Street. Seymour Hurst […]

David Morgan: Here’s Why You Must Protect Yourself Outside the Financial System…

Mike Gleason: It is my privilege now to welcome back our good friend David Morgan of The Morgan Report. David, it’s good to have you on as always and we appreciate the time today. How are you? David Morgan: Mike, I’m well. Thank you for having me. Mike Gleason: Well, we’ve had a significant correction in precious metals prices, especially in silver, and I wanted to get your thoughts on that to start out here. To us, it looked like the bullion banks sold futures contracts to lots of speculators who got interested in metals. Then as often happens, the speculators got taken out to the woodshed. However, open interest appears to still be […]

Race to the Bottom: What to Expect as the Fed Eases

Race to the Bottom: What to Expect as the Fed Eases

How low will they go? With the Federal Reserve all but certain to cut interest rates multiple times in the months ahead, central bankers are engaged in a race to the bottom. As negative interest rates expand in Japan and across Europe, as long-term bond yields in the U.S. plummet, and as President Donald Trump continues to talk tough on trade, the Fed has little choice but to cut. President Trump has effectively declared a currency war – and enlisted a reluctant Fed to help him fight it. He is convinced that lower interest rates will boost the economy and that a lower dollar will boost U.S. producers in international […]

Sound Money Needed Now More Than Ever

Sound Money Needed Now More Than Ever

By Clint Siegner, Money Metals Exchange The sound money movement reemerged on the national political scene a decade ago. In 2008, the financial crisis brought in a fresh wave of U.S. gold and silver investors. Ron Paul and the Tea Party advocated for limiting government and ending the Federal Reserve system. Sound money advocates made real inroads in recruiting Americans to their cause based on evidence that the nation is headed for bankruptcy. The implications of the most recent financial crisis went way beyond budget and finance. Many Americans grasped the more significant lesson. The perpetual expansion of government spending lay behind the corresponding decline in personal liberty for them, […]

The Dangers of Investing Based on Phony Government Statistics

By Stefan Gleason, Money Metals Exchange President Donald Trump recently took to Twitter to boast, “The U.S. has an increased economic value of more than 7 Trillion Dollars since the Election. May be the best economy in the history of our country. Record Jobs numbers. Nice!” “We ran out of words to describe how good the jobs numbers are,” reported Neil Irwin of the New York Times, amplified in a Trump retweet.

The Impact of the U.S. Economy on the Prices of Precious Metals

The price of precious metals, especially gold, reveals the true economic state of U.S. If today’s gold price is soaring high, it means that the economy is not healthy. It is because investors see gold as a safe haven on the verge of economic crisis. On the other hand, when the price of gold drops down, it signifies that the economy is healthy. Everything appears to be interdependent in modern complex economies, but it cannot be concluded that everything effects everything, including the value of gold. According to Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, in his first speech on the economic outlook since assuming the helm at the U.S. central bank on […]
