This article does an outstanding job in pointing to the fundamental reasons of owning and buying PHYSICAL gold and silver, from a monetary point of view. The fundamentals behind the debt crisis are explained, a matter that remains underexposed in mainstream media and education.
A couple of days ago, Credit Suisse published their latest gold market analysis. The report called the end of the 12 year bull run. As truthseekers, we owe our readers the true facts and the complete story. This article shows some elements that were not taken into account in the report. It helps people conduct their own research instead of taking reports or predictions as given.
The global economic scene is focused on additional monetary easing and continuing currency debasement in order to inflate their debts away. This is the only time in history where ALL countries globally are living on a paper based (fiat based) currency system. What we know from history is that every single fiat currency in history has collapsed. Gold is set to rise higher. Precious metals owners should be rewarded with much more than only preservation of purchasing power.
During his latest interview on King World News, Rick Rule explained the most fundamental principles to be a successful investor. He has a proven track of record, as one of the most successful resource investor. The key to success is very simple: control your emotions. But let’s be honest, it is not that simple in reality. Insight 1: “Your expectations for the future are set by your experiences of the immediate past.” Between 2009 and mid 2011, both the metals and the shares have been performing very well. People’s expectations for the future have been influenced by their most recent experiences. People should be looking at the current consolidation period […]
We are living in a world in which definitions of things are completely destroyed. The inevitable unmasking of today’s artificial world will lead to increased transparency on a large scale and an appreciation of gold.
Bubbles tend to follow the 80/20 ratio indicated in the Pareto Principle, as shown with six examples in the past centuries. Many analysts believe that sovereign debt is an ongoing bubble that could burst with world-wide consequences. Because of the massive printing of dollars, the value of the dollar must fall, particularly against commodities such as oil, gold, and silver. As the purchasing power of the dollar falls, an increasing number of people will realize their dollars are losing value. Gold and silver will benefit from an increasingly desperate search for safety as a result of the decline of the dollar. If that is true, based on the same pattern of historic bubbles, a significant spike in the gold and silver price are ahead of us.
In this interview with Gold Silver Worlds, Ronald Stoeferle explains in detail why the growing number of lower gold price forecasts are lacking insights in the physical gold fundamentals. He is one of the top precious metals analysts worldwide. The strength in the gold market by physical demand out of Asia is unrightfully underexposed or even ignored by most commentators and analysts. This article reveals a lot of insights that prove the incredible strength in the gold market driven by Asia and emerging markets.
We are all molded by the information kit we are fed as we grow up and as we grow old. And, unless we actively take the effort and find the energy to question all the commonly shared ‘truisms’ – the spoon-fed facts of others, the things that “everyone knows” and that all take for granted – we stand to be easy prey for those in possession of the means for mass propaganda.
A long time subscriber of Ted Butler’s premium newsletter asked a question that may be on many minds: “Ted, you have frequently stated that all manipulations must end. Why is that? After 25 years it still appears to be going strong. Why can’t it go on for another 25 years, or for infinity?” Ted Butler answers that instead of wondering why the silver manipulation hasn’t ended yet, one should look at all the accumulating evidence that demand is overcoming supply. Silver is tighter today than it has ever been (except in April 2011). If these signs weren’t present, then there might be some worry about how much longer the artificial low price could persist. But these signs do exist and it’s up to us to recognize them for what they are, namely, confirmation points of what must occur.
In a recent interview with Gold Silver Worlds, John Rubino (co-author of “The Collapse of the dollar” and owner of DollarCollapse.com) explained how bad the economic fundamentals really are. The economic situation looks under control currently, but John Rubino is convinced we are now in the eye of the storm. He concludes that the longer this unbalanced situation goes on the faster the eventual collapse will play out. John Rubino published his book in 2004 together with James Turk from GoldMoney. The main theme of the book was that governments in the US lost control over their spending and borrowing, which would ultimately result in some sort of catastrophic crisis. […]
How much gold is enough? How much should you allocate to dividend-paying stocks? How much should you hold in cash? How can you sort through the vast number of opportunities out there? Most readers understand that sitting on cash during times of inflation is a bad thing. At the same time, they are reluctant to invest in an uncertain market. So what is the way forward if you are concerned about preserving and growing your wealth?
This article describes Gold’s relationships with other currencies and how things have played out over the past year. Investors are always on the lookout for meaningful correlations that repeat over time. Gold investors have learned to follow closely the ratio between Gold and Silver prices for insights about what the future might bring. Over the past year, however, currencies have been a good “bellwether”, especially the Euro, which has been on a rollercoaster ride for the previous twelve months.
Gold and silver are NOT going up in value. An ounce or gold or an ounce of silver is still the same ounce. It is the imaginary “value” of the fiat you hold that is being debased and is relentlessly dropping. It is a subtle, but necessary change in “belief” one must always recognize, [and there are many who do, just not enough]. Instead of 250 or 900 units of fiat, it now takes 1650 units of fiat to purchase the SAME ounce of gold, and 30 units of fiat, instead of 5 or 20 units to purchase the same ounce of silver.
