Outlook for Precious Metals in 2017

Outlook for Precious Metals in 2017

Precious metals had a wild ride in 2016, launching higher in the first half of the year and then falling much of the way back to earth in the second half. Our outlook for 2017 hinges on some of the drivers that figured prominently in last year’s trading. There are also a couple of new wrinkles. Europe We’ll start with some fundamentals that metals investors have become well acquainted with in recent years. The troubles plaguing Europe seem to be forgotten, but they certainly aren’t gone. The question is whether or not officials in Europe will be able to keep the wheels on in 2017. Several major European banks remain […]

What are the Best Investments when Interest Rates are Low?

What are the Best Investments when Interest Rates are Low?

We’re currently living through uncertain times. Interest rates are at historic lows, and this isn’t particularly good news for savers. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to expand on your savings, or that opportunities aren’t present. There are still some great investments that you can make when interest rates are low. Here are just a couple. Property: Fixed Rate Mortgages In spite of low interest rates, the UK property market continues to boom. Prices have been rising steadily over the past decade, and even in the wake of Brexit, few experts are suggesting that this will end any time soon. As such, property is considered to be a relatively […]

5 Reasons You Should Buy Trump Insurance—And It’s Not Trump’s Fault

| November 18, 2016 | Articles: General

By Olivier Garret As the US licks its wounds after one of the most divisive elections in history, the markets appear to anticipate a positive economic outcome. On the election night, the overnight futures markets plummeted with the expectations of a Clinton victory. But it didn’t take long for a rebound. By morning, the markets returned back to normal. Lower taxes and a less regulated environment are good for the economy. And I hope Trump pulls it off. However, I am worried that what we see now is just a post-election honeymoon.  A good guarantee against unforeseen outcomes is owning gold bullion. Like most candidates, Donald Trump will not fulfill […]

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 […]

The True Nature of Gold Is Liberty

The True Nature of Gold Is Liberty

Article By Guy Christopher “Look at that screen,” exclaimed Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney, referring to the television graphic showing markets crashing across the globe. “The only thing going up is the price of gold!”    “It’s always a dangerous thing when you leave democracy up to the people,” joked Varney’s guest – venture capitalist and author Peter Kiernan, as they watched Britain vote Thursday night to escape the European Union The dust is still settling after Britain’s seismic Brexit vote June 23rd.  At issue: who should control British economic and immigration policies – Brits themselves, or unelected bankers and their bureaucracy stooges.  A choice between the liberty of self-determination or […]

Gold Will Overwhelm Dent

Gold Will Overwhelm Dent

Harry Dent is a good demographer and stands for what he believes. But this is not about Harry Dent. Charles Sizemore is a writer and editor who works for Harry Dent, but this is not about Charles Sizemore. This is about gold! Over a century ago JP Morgan understood that gold was money and the rest was credit. But he lived when you could buy groceries with a gold eagle and a cup of coffee cost a few cents. Ben Bernanke and hundreds of other “paper pushers” ignore gold, pretend not to understand it, and pressure the world to transact business using their paper currency Ponzi schemes. Why? Because the […]

Gold, Gold Stocks, and the End Game

Gold, Gold Stocks, and the End Game

We have seen the bottom in the gold market and gold stocks. Evidence: 1. Examine the 30+ year chart of the monthly XAU (gold stock Index) to Gold ratio. You can see that the downtrend in the ratio has lasted about 20 years – since 1996. The ratio is now at all-time lows in the form of a contracting triangle. The triangle appears broken to the upside. 2. In the last 20 years gold has moved upward from under $300 to $1,100 per ounce yet the XAU index has not kept pace, as shown by the ratio dropping from about 0.35 down to 0.03. 3. Gold hit a multi-year low […]

Central Planners Freaking Out about Discussion of Gold’s Role

Central Planners Freaking Out about Discussion of Gold’s Role

Growing Support for Sound Money Rankles Fed Apologists Sound money issues make for good politics these days. The leading Republican candidates have all suggested reforms to our monetary system. The topic is popping up in debates as well as interviews. Predictably, Fed worshippers and proponents of central planning everywhere are snickering and trotting out the usual responses. Michael Hiltzik, with the Los Angeles Times, recently published a column titled “The Worst Idea in the Presidential Debate: a Return to the Gold Standard.” He thinks “a return to the gold-standard would be so not right that it’s not even wrong.” It’s another way of saying the idea is so bad it […]

Gold in 2016

Gold in 2016

We all know that gold prices in US dollars have been in a downtrend for about 4.5 years. We all know that gold prices rise, on average, as the underlying currency declines in value. Gold in the US was priced under $21 per ounce when the Federal Reserve was established. Since then the dollar has been devalued and gold has increased in price by a factor of about 50. It is the same story around the world, whether you evaluate in terms of British pounds, euros, rubles, yen, or any other debt based fiat paper currency. So what are gold prices today and what will they be in the next […]

The Difference Between Gold and Debt

The Difference Between Gold and Debt

The world has added approximately $60 Trillion in debt since 2007, much of it sovereign debt created from deficit spending on social programs, wars, and much more. In that time the world has mined perhaps 30,000 tons of gold, or about 950 million ounces, worth at September 2015 prices a little more than a $Trillion. It is easy to create debt. Debt increases, currency in circulation increases, and until it crashes, life is good for the financial and political elite. But debt increasing 60 times more rapidly than gold indicates that debt is growing too rapidly and due for a reset.

Can Gold Save The World From the Credit Bubble?

Can Gold Save The World From the Credit Bubble?

The credit bubble has grown so large that the supposed central bank gold would have to be valued at $40,000 to $80,000 per ounce to back all the debt. Revaluing gold higher by a large factor may become necessary in the future to reestablish confidence in currencies. However a revaluation certainly will not be welcomed by central banks, governments, or most individuals. The transition to $80,000 gold, or even $10,000 gold, would be very traumatic.
