Gold Prices Climb after the Fed Announcement

While Demand for physical gold and silver in August and September has been exceptionally strong as investors seek a safe-haven from market turmoil, the traditional months of strong demand from Asia are now ahead of us which will add even greater demand for gold in the coming weeks. In India, gold demand will reach its peak later than usual this year as Diwali falls in the second week of November.

Technical Short-Term Bullish Signals on Gold

Gold executed the bullish declining wedge with last week’s breakout. Confirmation is arriving in the form of a new PMO BUY signal and a STTM BUY signal that triggered when the 5-EMA crossed above the 20-EMA. We await a positive 20/50-EMA crossover to retire the ITTM SELL signal.

What Needs to Happen on the Gold Chart To Become Bullish

What Needs to Happen on the Gold Chart To Become Bullish

Monday’s moderate weakness looks innocuous in the context of the bullishness of the 240-minute chart shown. Notice that the presumptive C-D phase of the rally begun from 1081.40 in early August stalled precisely at the 1141.90 midpoint pivot. This confirms the authority and reliability of the pattern itself, while also shortening the odds that a decisive push past p would go at least to p2=1164.00, or to D=1186.10 if any higher.

Citibank Calls for Helicopter Money Drops across Globe

Citibank Calls for Helicopter Money Drops across Globe

Perhaps the central planners will even start mailing us all checks – early tax rebates or the like – so we go out and spend. Buiter’s call for shoving money down everyone’s throat is representative of the philosophy that pervades the Federal Reserve and Washington DC: There can never be too much stimulus or money creation. If stimulus is failing, it is simply because it is inadequate. It is time to double down. Couple Buiter’s request for “helicopter money” with his recent modest proposal to abolish cash – an idea gaining real traction with policy makers and the major banks – and you have everything you need to know about why it is important to hold physical gold and silver.

First Majestic Hitting Multi-Decade Support Level

First Majestic could go lower from here but it has reached a fairly strong support level. The $3 level acted as both support and resistance during 2006 through 2010 and now price is testing that level again. The sliding parallel, see the dashed line on the chart below, provided support in November and December 2014 and price is testing that support level again.

War is the Health of the State And How To Protect Against It

War is the Health of the State And How To Protect Against It

Most people don’t question what their government does, especially when it comes to foreign policy. This gives power-hungry politicians the opportunity to lie to the public, so they willingly accept a war in a foreign country. A recent example is the Iraq war, where the public was led to believe that Saddam was hiding weapons of mass destruction and was an imminent threat to the United States. After the invasion, however, it turned out that Iraq had no WMDs and the threat was exaggerated to gain public support for the war. I am confident that physical Gold and Silver can protect you to a certain extent from government tyranny.

Should You Actually Worry About Gold Confiscation?

Should You Actually Worry About Gold Confiscation?

The day Washington orders confiscation is the day it broadcasts to the world, including to America’s sworn and powerful enemies, it has lost all control of its disastrous economic policies. That same day would mark widespread chaos throughout international markets and foreign capitals. On that day, for the very reasons you now own gold, you are going to need that gold. My guess is, based on the historical record, not many will give it up.

Silver: There Is Method To This Madness

If silver had slowly risen from under $10 in 2008 to $15 today, nobody would be excited, but the pervading negative sentiment would probably be absent. The too far, too fast rally and subsequent crash succeeded in crushing sentiment. Not coincidentally since 2011, the dollar and bonds have rallied, and the S&P reached all-time highs. Real assets down, paper assets up! There is method to this madness.

Gold shining ahead of Fed

One of the obvious beneficiaries of the accompanying dollar weakness has been gold, which is both denominated in US dollar and seen as a store of value in competition with the greenback. Today’s big rally has created at least four significant bullish technical signals

Gold vs Debt: The Big Picture

Gold vs Debt: The Big Picture

Gold prices could (I doubt it) fall further in the short term, since High Frequency Trading dominates trading action, and central banks need to hide the fact that their policies and currencies are failing, which usually means they suppress gold prices. Gold was formerly the “canary in the coal mine” indicating the failure of monetary and fiscal policies. But active suppression of gold prices has replaced the “canary” with a plastic look-alike that disguises the warning signal which tells us that something is very wrong with our monetary policies.

High Confidence In Gold Stocks Even If Consolidation Will Continue

High Confidence In Gold Stocks Even If Consolidation Will Continue

We believe that the new commitment to cost transparency, greater financial discipline and shareholder value represent a crucial – if late in coming – insight into the sector’s managers. Whether this new focus turns out to be mere lip service or not will become evident in coming quarters. Since the sector’s massive write-downs and value adjustments were one-off events, they could result in greater upside leverage. We therefore believe that gold stocks continue to exhibit a strongly asymmetrical risk/reward profile at present.

Dollar, Deficits, Fed: Trinity Of Truth

Dollar, Deficits, Fed: Trinity Of Truth

We started with the statement ‘simply print more Fiat currency, and you inflate away the debt’… and the first part ‘simply print more Fiat currency’ fails the Trinity of Truth test. Under our current system it’s impossible to ‘simply print more Fiat currency’. How about the rest? Can we ‘inflate away the debt’? Well, if each new Dollar created is of necessity accompanied by a newly created Dollars’ worth of debt, this does not seem likely, does it? Any effort to ‘print away’ existing debt will result in ever larger debt. This is the road to bankruptcy.
