Egon von Greyerz: Gold’s Prospects & Why Gold Is Not In A Bubble

In a recent interview conducted by Fabrice Drouin Ristori from GoldBroker.com, well-known Egon von Greyerz provides his view on the necessity of owning gold and gold’s prospects. After a lengthy consolidtion of 18 months, the gold price still stands at $1,660 | €1,250 and the silver price at $22 | €30. Enough reason for the bears to argue that the top in precious metals is in and that the economy will recover. On the other hand, gold bulls focus on the monetary and economic fundamentals which leave them convinced that we are nowhere near a top. Egon von Greyerz (EvG), being part of the latter group, explains in this interview which […]

Paul Brodsky: The Real Idea Behind The Trillion Dollar Coin

Obviously, the Trillion Dollar Coin idea is a political ploy with a targeted mission: to rid the US Treasury of its debt ceiling, which is an increasingly frequent and embarrassing public reminder of government ineptitude. Everyone knows government-led de-levering is not a serious threat. However, the irony of the scheme and its MMT / liberal Keynesian promoters could not be more delicious. The scheme exposes the forty year-old charade, otherwise known as the global monetary system, better than any mind-exercise we have been able to come up with.

Jim Sinclair About The Fed Announcement

There is no way that the implications and consequences of what has been done up to now can be talked or manipulated away. There is no practical way that QE can cease here or in Euroland without a total and final collapse of the financial system. Just go back to the IMF report on OTC derivatives I posted this morning. If QE ceases, the US bond market collapses and the Fed must debt monetize all required debt, which means if QE stops, it starts up again immediately and in a crisis mode.

Peter Schiff: First The Currency Cliff, Then Higher Inflation And Interest Rates

In a recent video, Peter Schiff explains the consequences of the increasing deficits to the American economy. Peter Schiff believes that things will play out in the following order: the crisis will first hit in the exchange markets, then in consumer prices (price inflation) and finally in the long term interest rates.

Jim Sinclair On Today’s Gold Price Decline

After yesterday’s announcement from the US Fed to continue their bond buy program of $ 85 billion dollar per month, the gold price initially rallied but closed the day flat. Surprisingly, in the Asian market trading session, gold and silver took a dive. The idea that precious metals prices go down right after one of the the most bullish possible events, is highly suspicious (to say the least). That’s the type of situation when a real expert needs to explain his opinion. Jim Sinclair commented on today’s gold price action. What follows are his wise words : Gold will trade at $3500 and above on its own merits with Eastern demand in the cash […]

Ted Butler: A Manipulation Timeline

| November 27, 2012 | Articles: Experts Talk

A friend and long-time subscriber who intends to write a book about the silver manipulation asked if I could provide him with a bit of history. To my mind, the silver manipulation dates back to early 1983, when the commercial traders grew confident that they could sell any quantity of paper short contracts to the technical fund buyers on the COMEX. By that time the commercials learned that technical fund buyers would never take physical delivery and could be counted on to buy or sell based upon price signals that the commercials could easily influence and control. In essence, the game has remained remarkably similar ever since. While the commercials learned to behave collusively […]

Marc Faber Explains Unintended Consequences Of Money Printing & Favors Gold

Marc Faber is one of the very successful investors on earth. He recently explained his view on the monetary policies of the developed regions in the world. Obviously he is no fan of the  Keynesian way of thinking which is applied by the central banks in the developed regions. The Keynesian policy considers easy money as a way out of economic recession and deflation. They argue that money creation smoothens out the business cycle. In his presentation, Marc Faber demonstrates that these kind of interventions achieve exactly the opposite: they make the business cycles much more violent, create extreme fluctuations in economic activity and result in far more financial volatility. In […]

Peter Schiff About Gold, Fiscal Cliff And Real Economic Growth

Earlier this year, Peter Schiff published his book “The Real Crash”, which explains how an economy grows and how it crashes, in simple language. Yesterday’s Black Friday appeared to be an ideal event to explain again the basic principles he presents in his book. The author commented on the picture of Black Friday that the media has created: people stepping out of warehouses with their shopping carts full of goods. He points to the key problem that the all those goods are produced in other countries (in this case, seen from the perspective of the US). Peter Schiff explained in his book and he repeats again that “it’s not the buying” […]

2012 Is The Tipping Point – Results Are In, Bankers Lost

2012 Is The Tipping Point – Results Are In, Bankers Lost

It is highly unlikely the Mayan predictions of the end of the world referred to the bankers’ world of credit and debt. Nonetheless, with only one month remaining until December 21, 2012—the end date of the Mayan 5,125 year Mesoamerican calendar—the concomitant end of the bankers’ 300 year ponzi-scheme of credit and debt should not be dismissed as mere coincidence. The world has entered a paradigm shift of immense proportions; and the collapse of the bankers’ economic world is a part of that shift. The bankers’ credit fueled a 300-year global expansion which transformed the world. The bankers’ credit, however, has now become debt which increasingly cannot be repaid. Economics […]

Silver Manipulation Explained In A Simple Way By Ted Butler

Silver Manipulation Explained In A Simple Way By Ted Butler

The month of October marked the highest amount of Silver Eagles sales over the past five years. One could ask why the price of silver was coming down from its peak early October. Of course part of the answer lies in the fact that Silver Eagles are not the only form of silver bullion. But there have been numerous examples in the past where the demand for physical silver was increasing while its price was decreasing, as described by Jeff Nielson amongst many others. The point is that the traditional law of demand and supply don’t always work especially not in the silver market. The central points is this: the price of […]

Peter Schiff About Infinite Inflation And The Safe Havens Gold & Silver

In his latest article, Peter Schiff explains the negative effects of interventions of monetary stimulus by the central bank. In particular, inflation is the result of money printing and although governments claim inflation is under control, it is an inevitable effect longer term. It is shortsighted to think that monetary interventions come without (negative) effects. The acclaimed decline of unemployment by the creation of money is not realistic in Peter Schiff’s opinion. Obviously a lot of other thinkers and commentators share the same view. After the announcement of QE3 (also dubbed “QE Infinity”) created yet another round of media chatter about a recovery, the Fed’s Open Market Committee has decided […]

David Morgan: The Silver Supply Squeeze In 1980 Could Look Like A Warm-up

David Morgan: The Silver Supply Squeeze In 1980 Could Look Like A Warm-up

During an interesting interview on PracticalBull.com, David Morgan made the statement that the silver supply squeeze of 1980 could look like a warm-up compared to what could be coming in the not too distant future. The bull run in the 70’s took the price of silver from less than $5 to almost $50 dollar. Of course, there is nothing shocking to this statement for long term followers of the precious metals markets or for people that understand today’s monetary catastrophe that is unfolding. But still it’s worth one’s time to look at the analysis of a respected person like David Morgan which leads him to such a conclusion. His analysis […]

Jim Sinclair: Gold Confiscation in 1933 Was What QE Is In 2012

When Mr Gold talks, you better make sure you listen. Jim Sinclair requested via his website to control emotions and writings with regard to gold confiscation. It’s quite unlikely that gold will be confiscated in 2012 like it happened in 1933. In order to understand the reason why, it’s mandatory to have some basic monetary insights. This is how Jim Sinclair explains it it: In the 1930s gold was to the monetary system what QE is today, a means of increasing the supply of money for Fed and Treasury discretionary use. The US Secretary of the Treasury and President Roosevelt set the gold price higher at their daily breakfast together […]

Darryl Schoon’s Five Favorite Books

We had the honour this weekend to do a Q&A with Darryl Schoon. What was intended to be a short talk about a limited number of specific questions, became a long and in-depth conversation about the fundamentals of modern life (economy, money and currency, precious metals, psychology, history). The world through the lens of Gold as Darryl sees it … that’s how we would describe the unique conversation. We would like to thank Darryl for the time he spent with us and the timely knowledge and wisdom he shared. Of course, readers will benefit from his insights as well, as we’ll publish several resumes in the coming weeks, starting with Darryl’s […]
