Eric Sprott: The Curious Case For Silver

Eric Sprott: The Curious Case For Silver

So let’s summarize to get this straight: if you believe in a global economic recovery – buy silver. If you believe there isn’t an economic recovery and we will continue on ‘central bank’ life support – buy silver. A major new buyer has entered the market purchasing as much as 20% of the total world production this year for investment purposes – follow the money and add some silver. And to top it off, at the moment it costs more to produce silver than to purchase it.

Silver – Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Silver – Light at the End of the Tunnel?

The most common interpretation of the recent shift is that the large bank (presumably, but not directly confirmed as JP Morgan) has closed out its silver short positions (at a nice profit, no doubt), and is now positioning itself for a bullish silver reversal. This is certainly what the bank appears to be doing in the futures market, although its participation through “paper” products based on silver’s spot price, rather than on the underlying metal itself, makes it difficult to know for sure

Gold Bull or Bear? Think of Gold As An Insurance Policy.

Gold Bull or Bear? Think of Gold As An Insurance Policy.

During a recent webinar by TheStreet.com a gold expert panel discussed the question if gold is still in a bull market. The outcome of the discussion was that gold being in a bull or bear market is somehow irrelevant. The gold price does matter, of course; owners of physical gold have a hard time stomaching the recent price decline. But the key point is that gold is a currency. So owners of PHYSICAL gold are holding the metal as an insurance policy against a currency crisis. Obviously that is not the trader’s perspective.

Central Banks’ Paper Gold vs Physical Gold: Is The Dust Settling?

| October 26, 2012 | Articles: General

Much has been written lately with regard to the central banks’ gold holdings. One of the triggers was the news out of Germany, where the debate about Germany’s real gold holdings became very hot this week. Among others, financial journalist Lars Schall came out with the results of his “field research”. His findings were that institutions like the German Bundesbank, the Bank of England, the US Federal Reserve and the IMF, refuse to reveal figures about  their real physical gold holdings. It’s a confirmation of what was already known, but it caught the attention of mainly the alternative media as well as GATA and increases the pressure for transparency. The “good news” from […]

The Solution…is the Problem, Part II

When we wrote Part I of this paper in June 2009, the total U.S. public debt was just north of $10 trillion. Since then, that figure has increased by more than 50% to almost $16 trillion, thanks largely to unprecedented levels of government intervention. Once the exclusive domain of central bankers and policy makers, acronyms such as QE, LTRO, SMP, TWIST, TARP, TALF have found their way into the mainstream. With the aim of providing stimulus to the economy, central planners of all stripes have both increased spending and reduced taxes in most rich countries. But do these fiscal and monetary measures really increase economic activity or do they have other perverse […]
