The Colors of Money Andrew Jackson Still Fights the Banking War

The Colors of Money Andrew Jackson Still Fights the Banking War

By Guy Christopher, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange This year marks the 101st anniversary of Andrew Jackson rolling over and over in his grave. Back in 1915, the brand new Federal Reserve pasted the 7th President’s likeness on its first $10 debt note – a sharp slap to the President who fought and won his famously bitter battle to destroy the “corrupting monster” of central banking. Old Hickory’s 1836 victory held steady until 1913, when the bankers gathered in secret at Jekyll Island, Georgia to plot the greatest bank robbery in history. The scheme was simple. First, print all the money they wanted, backed only by government promises. Then, […]

Bullion Investors: Stop Waiting for Bargains or Get Left Behind!

Bullion Investors: Stop Waiting for Bargains or Get Left Behind!

After years of buying based on progressively lower metal prices, bullion investors find themselves facing a dynamic that has been missing for a while: higher prices. That leaves them in a bit of a quandary, and many are sitting on their hands. Investors need to feel like they are getting a bargain – that prices can head much higher still. Many aren’t “feeling” it in the bullion markets. Now that silver has made a run back to $20/oz and gold is once again at $1,350/oz, the metals don’t seem cheap. Some investors are even grabbing the opportunity to sell. The U.S. Mint finally caught up with orders for the silver […]

Still Waiting for a Precious Metals “Correction”? Get Off the Dime and Buy Some Silver Ones…

Still Waiting for a Precious Metals “Correction”? Get Off the Dime and Buy Some Silver Ones…

Over time, charts for a bull market tend to print higher highs and higher lows on the way to the primary top. Two steps forward, one step back, creating a visual stair-step effect. This chart “picture” has been in evidence for gold, silver, and the miners since January. So far, waiting hasn’t been a good strategy. Yes, there were a couple of times in April, and a month later in late May where you might have been able to buy and save some money. But things can get in the way of that plan. And for a number of people I’ve talked to, things apparently did. The first obstacle is […]

How the Currency Market affects the Price of Gold and Silver

How the Currency Market affects the Price of Gold and Silver

There are many drivers of precious metal prices, such as global economic growth, supply and demand, inflation expectations, interest rates, production, geopolitical turmoil, etc. Having said that, one of the primary drivers of the prices of the two most popular precious metals gold and silver, that investors always need to keep an eye on, are movements in the global currency market. Gold, silver and the US dollar The US dollar is the base currency for both gold and silver. That means in the global commodity markets, both gold and silver are generally bought using US dollars. Therefore, if the dollar weakens, gold and silver become cheaper to purchase and their […]

Climbing Gold and Silver’s Wall of Worry

Climbing Gold and Silver’s Wall of Worry

By Clint Siegner, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange Confidence is slippery, even when you are a metals investor sitting atop the best performing assets of 2016. It doesn’t help when 4 years of a miserable bear market remains fresh in our memories. Any weakness in prices and it can feel like markets are getting ready to plunge right back to $13 silver and $1,000 gold. That feeling is called the “Wall of Worry”, and bulls are going to have to climb it by staying in the market even if their emotions are telling them to bail. Let’s review the last 6 weeks because they are quite instructional. June 1st: […]

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?

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 […]

Should You Be Investing in Safe Haven Assets?

Should You Be Investing in Safe Haven Assets?

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 […]
