Silver and S&P Similarities – Tops and Bottoms

Silver and S&P Similarities – Tops and Bottoms

Examine the 30 year log scale chart of the S&P 500. What I see:   Tops occurred about every seven years. Tops were usually rounded, followed by intense drops. Tops were approximately Aug. 1987, Jan. 1994, March 2000, Oct. 2007, and May 2015. Once the S&P broke below the red up-trending support lines in 2000, 2007, and (probably) in 2015, the rally was over and large corrections occurred. The next large move in the S&P looks like it should be, based on history, a substantial correction to the 600 – 1,400 range. Other Considerations: Federal Reserve easy money has helped create the last six years of S&P rally. The Fed […]

Silver Rides a Runaway Expense Train

Silver Rides a Runaway Expense Train

The US government will spend nearly $4 Trillion this fiscal year – starting last October 1. Of course it projects a massive deficit, increasing national debt, uses “funny” accounting, and does not address unfunded liabilities. Business as usual… Examine the last 100 years of US government expenditures and national debt – on a log scale in $ millions. Note that official government expenses have increased from about $750 million to about $4 Trillion, an increase by a factor of over 5,000. National Debt (official – not including unfunded liabilities) has increased from about $3 billion to nearly $19 Trillion in 100 years, an increase by a factor of about 6,000. […]

Gold And Silver – Physical PMs Are A “Gift” At Current Levels

Gold And Silver – Physical PMs Are A “Gift” At Current Levels

It really matters little what the charts are saying about the paper futures for gold and silver here, which we will get to shortly.  The focus needs to be kept on a few facts that are inescapably true:  fiat currencies throughout the history on this planet have always, always failed, without exception, 100% of the time.  There are few situations for which such a statement of guaranteed [failed] performance can be made. It is any different this time?  Yes and no. No, because all fiats have failed, plain and simple.  Yes, because the extent to which there is no reasonable reality in the relationship between paper and physical has never […]

Silly Myths about Gold during Rising Interest Rates

Silly Myths about Gold during Rising Interest Rates

By Stefan Gleason of Money Metals Exchange Fed Hikes; Silly Myths about Interest Rates & Gold Persist The Fed finally acted this week – upping its benchmark Federal Funds rate by 0.25%. Now that the speculation over whether the Fed will hike has been put to rest, analysts are busily speculating about what the Fed’s move means for the economy and markets. Many of these speculations are unfounded. It’s time to bust some silly myths. Much of what’s spewed out in the financial media concerning interest rates is flat-out wrong, especially when it comes to their impact on precious metals markets. Since gold and silver are small markets compared to […]

Gold & Silver or Meth & Madness

Gold & Silver or Meth & Madness

“Meth” or Methamphetamine is a common recreational drug used, according to Wikipedia, to induce feelings of euphoria, increase sexual desire, and stimulate weight loss, among others. QE or Quantitative Easing, injecting liquidity, bond monetization, and “printing money” are common Keynesian economic prescriptions used to inflate economies, enable deficit spending and boost financial profits, among others. Some call it monetary madness. There are many disturbing similarities and it is clear that excessive use of both Meth and QE are destructive. Your brain on drugs, your economy on QE: In low doses Meth can elevate mood and increase alertness and energy. The FDA has approved a variation of Meth for attention deficit […]

Gold And Silver – Problem, Reaction, Solution Does Not Apply To PMs.

The Rothschild-now-globalist template for gaining control over all money, and now the world, has been create a Problem, let an adverse Reaction develop, then present the desired Solution.  On a grander scale, there was the US Civil War to divide the country, then the manufactured Roaring ’20s and the stock market bubble, burst when the money changers purposefully tightened the money supply creating massive margin calls and the Crash of 1929. On a more recent level, we commented on the Arab refugee situation designed to weaken Europe, [See article], as a plan to further the New World Order.  The globalists created a Problem in the Middle East.  This created an […]

Gold Thrives, Paper Dies

(From “Bobby,” a reader – posted as a comment) Both Gold and Silver it is said Are jeered yet feared by the Fed For if they rise it will but show The dollar’s worth is very low So if they rise in upward trend The Fed then feels it must defend The things they do we know aren’t right But they don’t care, they have the might To lie and cheat and say “F.U.

Dishonest Money Will Die – I Hope

Dishonest Money Will Die – I Hope

Honest money – gold and silver – are not supported by governments and central bankers for obvious reasons. The Fed can “print” $85 Billion per month to buy dodgy paper to support the banking system, but the Fed can’t produce 75 million ounces of gold each month. Consequently we use dishonest money. A FEW QUESTIONS: If The-Powers-That-Be (TPTB) wanted honest money, why do they encourage dishonest money (the digital and paper stuff)? If counterfeiting is illegal and wrong, why do TPTB encourage fractional reserve banking, which is legal counterfeiting? If TPTB did not want inflation, why do they encourage central banks to devalue their currencies and create price inflation? If […]

Trouble Is Brewing in the Paper Markets for Gold and Silver

By Clint Siegner, Money Metals Exchange Precious metals bulls question why metals prices keep falling in the face of what appears to be strong demand and great fundamental reasons for prices to move higher instead. The bears have some answers of course. You can’t eat gold, it’s basically a pet rock, and modern financial systems are doing just fine without anything as antiquated as bullion gumming up the works. The bears are declaring victory and saying the market has spoken. They ought to look a bit deeper into recent developments. Outside of the price action, there is very little to support claims that gold and silver are relics of the […]
