Is Gold Price Manipulation Good Or Bad For Gold Investors?

Is Gold Price Manipulation Good Or Bad For Gold Investors?

In this article, Peter Schiff gives, for the first time, a detailed view of the leading conspiracy theories and how they impact its long-term investment outlook. He believes that the individual investor should have the same opportunities in the marketplace as the big institutions. The subtext “Because the price is suppressed, buying gold is for suckers” is fundamentally wrong in his view.

Peter Schiff: Gold’s Stealth Rally Remains Under The Radar

Peter Schiff: Gold’s Stealth Rally Remains Under The Radar

So far, 2014 has been a paradoxical year for gold. Many investors aren’t even aware that it has rallied almost 8%. On the rare occasion that the financial media mentions the yellow metal, it is only in the context of comparing the recent rise to last year’s decline. In spite of this overwhelming negative sentiment, gold is experiencing a stealth rally as one of the best performing assets of the year. Let’s look at some important metrics of the most under-valued sector in this market.

The Difference Between Gold and Bitcoins? Intrinsic Value!

The Difference Between Gold and Bitcoins? Intrinsic Value!

In his latest video appearance, Peter Schiff explains in detail the difference between gold and bitcoins. His main point: gold is real money because it has an intrinsic value! People want gold for itself. Yes it can also be used to exchange but it has a value unique to itself. It has its own properties that are desirable; there is nothing you can do with a bitcoin except give it to somebody else.

Bitcoin Is Gold 2.0: Right Or Wrong?

Bitcoin Is Gold 2.0: Right Or Wrong?

Peter Schiff says: “A lot of people are going to loose a lot of money in bitcoins, a small number of people will make a lot of money, but it will be paid for by a much greater number people who lose because they are coming at the end of the pyramid scheme. I don’t see bitcoins as an alternative to gold. It is not a modern day gold standard. If anything, they are modern-day alchemists but you can not make gold digitally. It is no better than a fiat currency.”

Is The Wealth Effect In The US Already Tapering?

Is The Wealth Effect In The US Already Tapering?

This week’s data show that the wealth effect is working in reverse already. Peter Schiff compares it with a “house of cards recovery” which is already collapsing before the real taper starts. The remarkable thing is that the Fed has only been talking about a slight easing of their asset purchases. Moreover, the failure of the latest bond auction should result in less interest in the dollar. That is what shapes the prospects for gold and explains recent price action.

Peter Schiff About Gold, Fiscal Cliff And Real Economic Growth

Earlier this year, Peter Schiff published his book “The Real Crash”, which explains how an economy grows and how it crashes, in simple language. Yesterday’s Black Friday appeared to be an ideal event to explain again the basic principles he presents in his book. The author commented on the picture of Black Friday that the media has created: people stepping out of warehouses with their shopping carts full of goods. He points to the key problem that the all those goods are produced in other countries (in this case, seen from the perspective of the US). Peter Schiff explained in his book and he repeats again that “it’s not the buying” […]

Peter Schiff About Infinite Inflation And The Safe Havens Gold & Silver

In his latest article, Peter Schiff explains the negative effects of interventions of monetary stimulus by the central bank. In particular, inflation is the result of money printing and although governments claim inflation is under control, it is an inevitable effect longer term. It is shortsighted to think that monetary interventions come without (negative) effects. The acclaimed decline of unemployment by the creation of money is not realistic in Peter Schiff’s opinion. Obviously a lot of other thinkers and commentators share the same view. After the announcement of QE3 (also dubbed “QE Infinity”) created yet another round of media chatter about a recovery, the Fed’s Open Market Committee has decided […]

More Bullish Signals For Gold

More Bullish Signals For Gold

It’s amusing to see how much people still don’t understand the dynamics behind Gold. You can find in this short article a couple of examples. This video goes back to the days after QE3 was announced (also known as QE to Infinity). The CNBC commentator cannot believe that gold could go to $5,000 and laughs Peter Schiff away. Well, if $5,000 is high, what to think about $10,000 gold that some respected people are expecting? The historic evidence is there. If there is one chart that everyone knows, at least everyone who read at least one article about Gold, it’s the historic Dow/Gold ratio.The trend is clearly there, all circumstances […]

Peter Schiff: Amazing Silver Opportunity because of Operation Screw

This is a transcript of Peter Schiff’s video about today’s silver opportunity. Peter schiff says: “I am talking today on behalf of my company Euro Pacific Precious Metals. I have been encouraging people to buy gold & silver for years. I was particularly vocal about it in late August when the charts broke out in both gold & silver. It became apparent to people that QE3 was coming. I knew QE3 was coming the minute they launched QE2, because I knew that QE2 wouldn’t work. In fact, I knew QE1 was coming before they even coined the term. I didn’t know how they were going to call it, but I […]

Peter Schiff: The QE Debate

There is an ongoing three way debate between those who believe the Fed should do more to strengthen the recovery, those who believe that the recovery is strong enough to continue on its own, and those who believe that the economy has been so fundamentally altered by the recession that no amount of stimulus can succeed in pushing unemployment down to pre-crash levels. As usual, they all have it wrong (although some are more wrong than others). The false conclusions are being made by the likes of bond king Bill Gross, who has suggested that the economic fundamentals have changed. They argue that a “new normal” is now in place […]
