Silver and Gold: Why Now?

Silver and Gold:  Why Now?

In simple terms, government took real revenue, spent it, and then added more debt each year. Worse, the US owes compounding interest on the larger debt. Each year the US and many other governments pay interest on the loans (caused by deficit spending) from previous years. The total debt increases rapidly – far too rapidly to be repaid without massive inflation. Hence default via debt repudiation or devaluation of purchasing power is inevitable.

We Are Close To A Point Where COMEX Price Manipulation Will Become Ineffective

Judging by the increasing numbers of commentators and observers now including the developments in futures trading on the COMEX as the prime price influence on gold and silver, I am greatly encouraged. I firmly believe that we are much closer than ever to the point where enough see the COMEX price manipulation to render it ineffective. We are not there yet, but that day will come.

Gold And Silver vs Fiat Money: It’s A Confidence Game

Gold And Silver vs Fiat Money: It’s A Confidence Game

Don’t believe the lies or trust that unbacked debt based paper currencies will survive (they never do). Learn from the lessons of history – gold and silver have been money for thousands of years. The western world currently has amnesia about the true nature of money. Asia has not forgotten the value of gold and silver. Convert increasingly risky dollars, euros, yen, bonds, and other delusions into gold and silver while you can. The window of opportunity will not remain open much longer.

Gold Gets Safe Haven Bids But COMEX Has Stopping Power

Gold Gets Safe Haven Bids But COMEX Has Stopping Power

An important driver of the recent gold rally has been the flight to safety, away from stocks, into “risk off” assets like the US Dollar, US Bonds and gold. Clearly, gold in non-US Dollars has a much more constructive outlook because of the monstrous US Dollar rally of late. In the short run, the gold chart setup suggests a pause. Longer term, towards the second half of this year, depending on how risk on / risk off will play out, gold could be in the position to break through its long term resistance. Even with all the conclusions confirming each other, there is one major divergence, and it deserves a yellow flag in our opinion: COMEX futures positions. It has the potential to cap the rally, and even reverse it, at least in the short run. Going forward, it is key to monitor how futures positions in the COMEX evolve as the price of gold changes. Also, the key trendlines, chart patterns, and technical indicators should be monitored as prices evolve.

What Is Driving This Gold Rally?

What Is Driving This Gold Rally?

Gold was down 1.72 percent at the end of 2014, but things are looking up for the yellow metal. Last week I returned from presenting at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, where sentiment for gold was through the roof. And with good reason. Even though gold was down last year, it still ranked as the second-best-performing currency, following the U.S. dollar. The metal has risen about 10 percent year-to-date, and last Tuesday, for the first time since mid-August, it broke through the $1,300 mark.

The Beauty of Deflation

The Beauty of Deflation

We do not know what the future entails when our existing monetary and financial systems break down, but we are convinced that gold and silver will offer security (at least) in the transition period. If we look at the gold purchases by the East, it also reveals how emerging markets have set their minds on gold. This further supports our conviction that a form of gold standard might regain a prominent status and take over once again. However, the prevailing monetary experiment called “fiat currency” is likely to persist for some time to come.
