Prices have pulled back some, and maybe we’re seeing a pausing of sorts here after the big run up that we saw immediately following the Brexit decision. […]

The Curious Case of Vanishing Lady Liberty; Only Gold and Silver Remember Her

The Curious Case of Vanishing Lady Liberty; Only Gold and Silver Remember Her

By Guy Christopher, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange The very first word anyone ever saw on a circulating United States coin was the word “LIBERTY.” From half-cents to silver dollars, each featured the likeness of an unnamed woman. The images varied, thanks to different engravers, but together they became recognized as Lady Liberty. Many, maybe most, of young America’s citizens were illiterate. “Liberty” may have been the first word they ever learned to read. If not, they surely knew her face. The Revolutionary War for them was not ancient history. The Founding Fathers knew all gold, silver, and copper is sound money and didn’t mind that American coinage circulated […]

Greenspan, Gold, and the Banality of Evil

Greenspan, Gold, and the Banality of Evil

By Stefan Gleason, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange Under certain circumstances, seemingly decent human beings are capable of horrific things. So it is with Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, who parlayed his sound money bona fides into the top post at America’s private banking cartel and current issuer of our un-backed currency. In betrayal of his own stated free-market principles, Greenspan spent his tenure at the Fed pumping up financial markets with easy money and enabling runaway government spending commitments. Today, however, the “maestro” of central banking is playing a very different tune. He’s warning against an inevitable crisis resulting from the very policies he helped implement. Perhaps […]

How High Is “Sky-High” Silver?

How High Is “Sky-High” Silver?

Now that the precious metals’ five-year cyclical bear market is acting like it’s been replaced by a vibrant bull run in the opposite direction (up!), many analysts who chided the ongoing rise in the mining stocks and metals that started in December 2015 are begrudgingly changing their “outlook” so they don’t get left behind.

Gold – the Oldest Payment Option

Gold – the Oldest Payment Option

Gold – the oldest payment option for a lot of players, is still something that a lot of players are ultimately going to think about and want to use. People are still going to need to play online casino games electronically, of course. However, when people play table games such as Black Jack at the Royal Vegas Online Casino, it is going to feel as if most of the cash transactions and most of everything that goes on there manages to be indirect. Gold – the oldest payment option may not be exactly what people use today, but in many ways, the currency has really not changed all that much […]

In the wake of recent world events, the markets have been rife with uncertainty. The Middle East has been riven by conflict, the European Union has been struck by crisis after crisis, and America is facing one of the most controversial presidential election contests in history. To add insult to injury, the existing tumult has been stirred to fever pitch in recent weeks by Britain’s vote in favour of Brexit. This has left many investors in a quandary, wondering whether they should stick with their existing strategies, or retreat to safer ground and implement a more conservative approach to trading. For many, the latter has won out, and as a […]

Article By Guy Christopher “Look at that screen,” exclaimed Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney, referring to the television graphic showing markets crashing across the globe. “The only thing going up is the price of gold!”    “It’s always a dangerous thing when you leave democracy up to the people,” joked Varney’s guest – venture capitalist and author Peter Kiernan, as they watched Britain vote Thursday night to escape the European Union The dust is still settling after Britain’s seismic Brexit vote June 23rd.  At issue: who should control British economic and immigration policies – Brits themselves, or unelected bankers and their bureaucracy stooges.  A choice between the liberty of self-determination or […]

Will You Heed the New Signs of Economic Crisis?

Will You Heed the New Signs of Economic Crisis?

 Will You Heed the New Signs of Economic Crisis? By David Smith, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange On December 7, 1941, Kermit Tyler, an untrained watch officer, was on duty when a radar operator reported to him that he was seeing a large “blip” on the radar screen headed towards Pearl Harbor. Thinking it was a flight of returning U.S. B-17 bombers, Kermit replied nonchalantly, “Don’t worry about it.” Like the warships on Battleship Row, your assets are at risk. Eight battleships – each named for an American state – were grouped at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked. (One – the West Virginia – was named for the […]

Are Junior Gold Stocks Following 2008-2009 Recovery?

Are Junior Gold Stocks Following 2008-2009 Recovery?

Are Junior Gold Stocks Following 2008-2009 Recovery? Weeks ago precious metals began a correction amid overbought conditions (in the miners) and very bullish sentiment in the metals. The recent Fed minutes helped accelerate the weakness but it lost steam in recent days. A real stinker of a jobs report completely reversed the thought that the Fed would hike rates in the summer and it sent precious metals surging. As a result, the gold stocks and junior gold stocks especially could be back on the path to making new highs before autumn. Below we show our junior gold index bull analog chart. It is a custom index of 18 stocks with […]

The History of Gold

The History of Gold

It is quite astonishing that we remain so interested in gold when it was first discovered over five thousand years ago. For millennia, we have been enamored with this shiny yellow metal, mining it, shaping it, and trading it. Its value is immortalized in the saying that ‘not all that glitters is gold’. We are almost halfway into 2016 and people are still clamoring over the rising and declining prices of gold. It is impressive to see that after all this time, we still rely on one of the world’s oldest currencies. It appears that despite technological advances and digital tendencies, some things simply are too precious to let go. […]

Gold or Silver—Which is Better for the Investor?

Gold or Silver—Which is Better for the Investor?

Precious metal investments skyrocketed following the 2008 recession. Less than a decade later, there’s still a high demand for precious metal investments. Gold and silver hedges against economic downturns, so it’s natural that when the dollar is devalued, people would seek to invest more in precious metals. Now, the big question is, which is more lucrative: gold or silver? Gold has centuries old association with wealth while silver is considered the “poor man’s gold.” As amusing as popular perceptions might be, they do not necessarily affect the business of investment. In the past several years, both gold and silver prices have gone up. If you are a savvy investor who wants […]
