How to Save Your Money And Your Life

By Doug Casey, Casey Research I think there are really only two good reasons for having a significant amount of money: To maintain a high standard of living and to ensure your personal freedom. There are other, lesser reasons, of course, including: to prove you can do it, to compensate for failings in other things, to impress others, to leave a legacy, to help perpetuate your genes, or maybe because you just can’t think of something better to do with your time. But I’ll put aside those lesser motives, which I tend to view as psychological foibles. Basically, money gives you the freedom to do what you’d like – and […]

John Hathaway: We Are Within Months of This Crisis Blowing Wide Open

Is the Table Set for a Mania in Precious Metals?

Is the Table Set for a Mania in Precious Metals?

By Jeff Clark, Casey Research It may feel like I’m out of touch with the precious metals markets to broach the subject of a mania today, but I think the table is being set now for a huge move into gold and silver. There are, however, very valid reasons to reasonably expect a mania in our sector. For one thing, manias have occurred many times before, but the main issue is that a mania in gold and gold stocks is the likely result of the absolute balloon in government debt, deficit spending, and money printing. Saying all that profligacy will go away without inflationary consequences seems naïve or foolish. Inflation […]

Peter Schiff: if you really care about the debt crisis, then you should be in gold

Peter Schiff explains his economic view on the important moves in the financial markets past Friday and concludes with his take on gold. It all started with the US jobs data for May: estimates were that 150.000 new jobs were created, but instead the number stuck at 69.000. That means unemployment rate in the US is now  8.2%. If you have a look at another unemployment number – being the so-called U6 which includes also the discouraged unemployed people – the rate is 14.8% now. Apart from the bad US unemployment numbers, the expected GDP in Q1 was revised downward and is now expected to be 1.9%. But Peter Schiff […]

Paper gold pitfalls

| May 29, 2012 | Articles: Insights

Last year’s disastrous collapse of MF Global has impacted financial markets around the world in many ways. Given that it was one of the largest brokers of leveraged products, it is no surprise that this area has felt the full force of MF Global’s collapse. For example, futures trading volume on US exchanges has dropped noticeably, mainly for two reasons. First, MF Global customers who are still waiting for their money to be returned are not trading. Second, customers of other brokers have understandably become worried about the safety of their money and withdrawn funds from those firms, which has reduced their capacity to trade. Gold has not been spared […]

Central Banks and China provide solid support for the gold price

Past week marked another V-type move in the gold price and silver price. The good news though is that the previous low has not been broken, but we rather saw a higher low. Especially in gold, a remarkable  bounce occured intraday on Wednesday, after the trading session started with a sharp price drop. It seems that the gold price is not allowed to move lower, at least for now. We’ll need to watch the price action over the coming weeks. Tensions over Europe are increasing and the faith of the European currency and banking system is in the hands of the politicians. The speed and type of their decisions will […]
