“Something Is Wrong”, But Little Change Will Occur Until It Is Forced

Interlocking complicity produces a degree of stability as it helps maintain the status quo, which is very important to the powers-that-be. Interlocking complicity ensures that accountability, oversight, and ethical practices are low priorities, while payoffs and no-bid contracts will maintain their important role in government operations. Interlocking complicity ensures that little change will occur until it is forced upon us.

Gold Outlook – Love Trade And Fear Trade Likely To Return

India’s growing GDP is very important to gold’s rise, especially when it comes to the Love Trade, where about 50% of the world’s population buys gold out of love. The math shows that an increasing GDP per capita in this part of the world has historically been linked to the rising price of gold. Related to the Fear Trade gold has recently become less attractive due to the slightly positive real interest rates in the U.S.

The HUI Has Penetrated Its June Lows, Gold and Silver To Follow

The June low for the gold mining sector was believed to the bottom for gold miners and as such presented a buying opportunity for the precious metals community. At the time we greeted this event with some trepidation and described the capitulation as a capitulation of sorts, but not a final one. In any bull market we have to climb the wall of worry and gold and silver did exactly that in the first phase of this bull market as many objectors denounced its progress. This wall of worry will always be with us as gold clings on in the hope that there is a U-turn coming and the bull […]

Gold Miners Look To Break Below June Low

I’m looking for the miners to break below the June Low, but for Gold to hold above it. A decline by miners below the low should trigger exhaustion selling, but if Gold doesn’t confirm, it should mark a significant bear trap for investors in miners.

Don’t Be Beguiled Into Thinking Owning Gold Is A Waste Of Time

If gold prices continue to slide, it is essential that you are not beguiled into thinking that you own a barbaric relic. There is enormous value to owning gold. And while it may not be apparent now, things are bound to change in the very near future. The Chinese have already figured this out and that is why they are buying as much gold as possible.

Fifty Shades Of Gold

Unlike most commodities, there are many shades to gold. Some of shades include the Love Trade’s buying gold for loved ones, the Fear Trade’s purchasing gold as a store of value, gold in relation to monetary debasement, dynamics of the paper vs physical gold market, and so forth. In a recent presentation, Frank Holmes of USFunds.com discussed those shades of gold with numerous charts. His presentation is called “Fifty Shades Of Gold.”

Examining Silver and Deflation

Examining Silver and Deflation

The deflationary threats still remain. Ask yourself, can the average consumer handle rising interest rates? Can bank balance sheets handle a further drop in housing values? You get my point– it seems to me that a lot of people are making light of real challenges out there in the real economy. Yes, commodities may continue their trend lower – and so might silver and gold for the next months or year. But always remember what sets the precious metals apart.

Higher Interest Rates: No Longer a Death Sentence for Gold

Higher Interest Rates: No Longer a Death Sentence for Gold

Conventional wisdom suggests that higher rates are bad news for gold. However, as detailed in a recent special report by the World Gold Council, an environment of rising rates is not necessarily a death sentence for the yellow metal. In fact, excluding the high real-rate environment of the late 1970s and the early 1980s, US real rates have actually exerted little influence on gold prices.

Until 2023 Mankind Will Go Through An Historic Wealth Destruction

There are just 2-3 anonymous investments to avoid being robbed by NWO socialists: physical precious metals, cash, Bitcoin (with reservations). Each of the 3 has advantages & disadvantages, foreign currency accounts potentially being planned as an escape. Of course, the big drawback of gold is the nasty performance.
