The #1 Question for Beginners in Precious Metals

The #1 Question for Beginners in Precious Metals

More new people may have made their first purchase of physical gold or silver in the past 4 months than in any four-month period in history. This sort of data isn’t reported and tracked. But if our experience as one of the nation’s largest precious metals dealers is representative, we believe that’s the case. We’ve never seen so much retail demand, and a big portion of the buyers are first timers. With the new wave of people entering the market comes a fundamental question lots of them have before they get started: What do I do with the metal after I buy it? Physical gold and silver are useful both as […]

Fed Chairman: “We’re Not Even Thinking about Thinking About Raising Rates”

Fed Chairman: “We’re Not Even Thinking about Thinking About Raising Rates”

Market volatility has suddenly spiked in recent days came after the Federal Reserve vowed last Wednesday to keep its benchmark rate near zero through 2022. That’s an unusually long period for the Fed to be projecting rate policy. It reflects the fact that it will take many months and perhaps years for the tens of millions of jobs that were recently lost to return. During his press conference, Chairman Powell stumbled and stammered his way into stating that he would be happy to let inflation continue to rise until the economy approaches full employment. Jerome Powell: We’d be looking to get inflation back up and we’d be prepared to tolerate, uh, […]

Investors Confused as Governors Spur Protests While Keeping Others Locked Down

Investors Confused as Governors Spur Protests While Keeping Others Locked Down

A violent and chaotic week in America’s cities was met with little apparent concern on Wall Street.  For the most part, the stock market continued on its merry way higher. Precious metals markets, meanwhile, are giving back some of their recent gains. It’s no surprise that silver encountered some resistance at $19.  In fact, on May 26th we had pointed to that very level being the next important target for silver in weekly Money Metals News Alert we send out via email every Monday morning. $19 was also the high point for silver in late February before the steep selloff began.  So, this week silver essentially made up for all […]

Is America Headed for a Post-Apocalyptic Currency Collapse?

Is America Headed for a Post-Apocalyptic Currency Collapse?

Just when it seemed as though America may be turning the corner after months of lockdown… just when it seemed as though we were on a path to reopening and gradually returning to normalcy… just when the prospects of panic-induced social unrest seemed to be behind us… …America’s cities erupted into flames. Antifa and BLM-organized rioting, looting, violence, and mayhem have pushed cities across the country into pandemonium. Even if the insurrections are soon quelled – as President Donald Trump promised to do in a speech in front of the White House on Monday – the consequences won’t soon go away. Some epidemiologists seized on the protests to predict a […]

Social Unrest Rises as Confidence Falls

Social Unrest Rises as Confidence Falls

Protests egged on by the legacy media quickly devolved into large-scale riots and looting over the weekend in more than a dozen U.S. cities. Some important institutions have betrayed the public trust, and Americans facing quarantine and staggering unemployment have arrived at the boiling point. Meanwhile, the ranks of people buying gold and silver as a hedge against economic chaos and financial malfeasance swelled again in recent months. A new wave of Americans is grappling with what it means for Congress to spend trillions it doesn’t have. Or for Federal Reserve bankers to print trillions of electronic notes and hand them over to their friends on Wall Street. Seymour Hurst […]

Trump vs. Biden: What’s at Stake for Metals Investors?

Trump vs. Biden: What’s at Stake for Metals Investors?

The China virus, the economic lockdowns, and the multi-trillion-dollar rescue efforts of central bankers have dominated markets over the past three months. However, as lockdowns gradually lift and the 2020 election draws nearer, investors will begin to focus more on political developments. The once-strong economy that President Donald Trump had hoped would propel him to re-election has collapsed. The President has also taken a tremendous amount of heat from the media over his handling of the COVID-19 crisis, and that has hurt his poll numbers. Despite these headwinds, polls show Trump still has a good chance of defeating a stumbling and bumbling Joe Biden. The opinions of pundits and pollsters […]

A New Day Has Dawned for Gold and Silver

A New Day Has Dawned for Gold and Silver

Most resource sector writers (including me) have for a long time been “wrong” about gold and silver. When they ran from $250 and $5 an ounce, respectively, to $1,920 and $49 in 2011, those who listened, acted, and sold a bit did quite well. We argued the “longer time bullish case” as these metals dropped into their final cyclical bear market graves in late 2015. But that was then… and this is now. What we DID get right was that when the Big Turn finally came, it would change directions so swiftly and violently that anyone waiting for “the bottom” would miss it, as rising premiums more than offset declining […]

Another Stock Market Selloff Could Drive More Bullion Buying

Another Stock Market Selloff Could Drive More Bullion Buying

Investors got a look at first quarter GDP, and it wasn’t pretty. The U.S. economy contracted by 4.8%, even worse than the 3.3% decline anticipated by economists. In addition to that bad news, 4 million more Americans filed for unemployment last week. More than 30 million people have lost jobs over the past 6 weeks, and the situation is only getting worse. The S&P 500 lost 2.8% on Friday. Perhaps equity investors are beginning to wonder if share prices, which have moved relentlessly higher in recent weeks, accurately reflect the dismal economic data. Warren Buffett certainly is. The famed investor announced his company, Berkshire Hathaway, had sold all of its […]

Americans Just Can’t Get Enough Gold & Silver

Americans Just Can’t Get Enough Gold & Silver

Precious metals markets enter the month of May with some mixed signals near term.  But the long-term picture continues to look constructive.  All the metals appear to have put in major bottoms during the panic selling of mid to late March. Barring another wave of virus outbreaks and economic lockdowns, the gradual reopening of state, local, and national economies should start to unleash more industrial and jewelry demand in the not too distant future. And the extraordinary fiscal and monetary stimulus being pumped into the financial system will, if nothing else, work toward the debasement of the U.S. dollar. Earlier this week, the Federal Open Market Committee met and pledged […]

Monster Gains in Mining Stocks Bode Well for Gold and Silver

Monster Gains in Mining Stocks Bode Well for Gold and Silver

April marks a second month of truly extraordinary developments in markets – from negatively priced crude oil futures to a record spike in unemployment claims to a lockdown-defying rally in stocks. The financial media is touting the S&P 500’s surge of more than 13% in April – the biggest one-month gain for the index since 1974. While stock market investors have made up a big chunk of their 2020 losses, the major averages and nearly all sectors within them are still down significantly for the year. One exception is the mining sector. The GDX Gold Miners ETF (NYSE:GDX) exploded 42% higher in April to make fresh new 7-year highs. For […]
