What Yellen’s Speech Means For Gold And Bitcoin

What Yellen’s Speech Means For Gold And Bitcoin

Could this mark the beginning of the decline of gold from prior highs? I don’t think the decline will start with force, given Janet’s comments this past Friday. The Fed is planning to maintain its schedule until better conditions prevail-this is fairly unpredictable given so many exogenous factors that could throw the recovery off, like further economic losses in Europe or China. However, once this begins, we might expect to see capital flow to where higher returns can be made. Given a pent-up demand for higher returns-hopefully it will not create an asset bubble.

Geopolitical Tensions are Supporting Gold Prices in the Short and Long-Term

Geopolitical Tensions are Supporting Gold Prices in the Short and Long-Term

With slowing growth and rising inflation, I wonder what central bankers will do next. So far, all they have done is create an ocean of credit that is acting as a lifeline to bankrupt countries and financial institutions. And, if the central banks stop printing, these institutions will be in serious trouble. On the other hand, the inflationary effects of their monetary policy are starting to be felt all over the world. So if central banks keep printing, they will do even more damage to their currencies and anyone who uses them. I am very happy that I own physical gold and silver.

Gold Will Be the Final Currency – Yes or No?

Gold Will Be the Final Currency – Yes or No?

But please ask yourself why the central banks and the citizens of Russia, China, India and many other countries are aggressively buying gold! I believe they more correctly understand the risks and the vulnerabilities of our debt based pyramid of paper that western governments and central bankers have constructed. I believe they have chosen to hedge their paper risks with physical gold.

The US stock market indices are at all-time highs. Is confidence strong in both the US dollar and the stock markets? Or is it confidence that the Federal Reserve, via newly “printed” dollars, will support the market? How much confidence do YOU have in digital Euros versus gold coins in your hand?

6 Signs That 2014 Will Be The Year Of The Super Crash

As we have finally arrived in the magic year 2014, in which almost every economic and business cycle is trending down, it seems that things are perfectly lining up for a melt down. If it would have been true that the debt crisis was contained (like our political leaders try to make us believe), then there is a huge divergence with recent trends. This article looks at six different trends which are lining up for an historic sell off in the markets. As readers observe, we stay as factual as possible.

Gold Stands Strong After US Fed Taper II

Gold Stands Strong After US Fed Taper II

Gold’s current relative strength is not only confirmed by weakness in US equities, but also by a weakening US dollar and the gold mining complex. The gold miners recently broke through important resistance (see blue line on the following chart) and are holding up quite well. For us, the most surprising evolution of today was that gold miners went significantly higher after the FOMC news, although they were neutral before, amid a weakening stock market.

Russia Adds 79.5 Tonnes Of Gold In 2013 To Its Reserves

The Central Bank of the Russian Federation finally got around to updating their website for December—and for the first time in four months they added to their gold reserves. This time it was 700,000 troy ounces. Their total gold reserves that they’re reporting on their website now totals 33.3 million troy ounces. For all of 2013 they added 2.5 million troy ounces to their ‘reported’ reserves, which is about 79.5 metric tonnes.

Why The Bundesbank Is repatriating Its Gold So Slowly

Why The Bundesbank Is repatriating Its Gold So Slowly

Should they keep their reserves in Germany? In my opinon, all countries should. Does it make sense that the Fed doesn’t allow viewings “in the interest of security and of the control process” when they allow tourists to see the vault? In my opinon, no. But it is clear to me that their public statements and lack of action reflect the fact that they consider the repatriation as “irrational” rather than showing any distrust in the US or France central banks.

2014 The End Of The Beginning

Ponzi-financing is the final stage in the bankers’ 300-year old ponzi scheme. An extreme deflationary collapse is about to take away all what credit created and the take-away will not be easy for those attached to the world that is passing away. The global economic collapse along with increasingly severe earth changes, e.g. record heat, record cold, earthquakes, drought, floods, etc., are the trigger events for a paradigm shift of cosmic proportions. The rebalancing of universal polarities is underway. A better world is coming.

Gold And Silver – In East v West Gold War, Both Are Still Winning

Gold And Silver – In East v West Gold War, Both Are Still Winning

Despite all of this recognized demand from every possible source, how else does one otherwise account for the fact that the price of gold was down 28% for the year? The greatest, and only impact on the price of gold has been the central bankers and their concerted effort to suppress prices, and a very successful endeavor for the past few years. In this regard, Western central bankers have been winning the paper battle on gold, but they are also losing the most important war, economic dominance.
