Gold Price Doesn't Move, Despite Global Financial Turmoil

For the first time ever a developed country has defaulted on an IMF loan, the future of the euro is at stake & demand for physical gold in Europe is strong. The stock market of the world’s second largest economy declined by nearly 30 % in less than three weeks, but the gold price doesn’t move. Surely, the last thing authorities need at this moment is gold on the move.

Copper Crashes, In Danger Of Breaching 15-Year Support Level

Will the PBOC step in to also rescue copper, or will the last remaining indicator of global economic health (or lack thereof) be left to fend for itself and be the latest confirmation that excluding central bank support of all stocks around the globe, the world is now gripped by an unprecedented economic depression.

Economic Stagnation and the Global Bubble

Despite massive policy stimulus in the United States since the late 2007 peak, the US economy is now growing far more slowly than in past periods of monetary inaction from the central bank. The Fed has thus become little more than a serial bubble machine. Meanwhile, fragile economic bubbles are being inflated from China to Europe.

Gold And Silver – Quarterly, Monthly Charts & Analysis

The Euro Crisis: Solvency of the ECB is at Stake

How the Greek crisis is a euro crisis: ECB itself now needs refinancing as losses that ECB faces from Greece alone are about €189.3bn – twice its equity capital & reserves of €98.5bn. Given the likely collapse of the Greek banking system & default on its debt, collateral held by ECB are more or less worthless. Upsetting of the Greek applecart risks destabilising the euro itself.

What Good is Gold When Gold is Declared Illegal?

Today, the feds don’t need to outlaw gold. That could change when the lines begin to grow longer. Smart people will turn to gold, not just in time, but just in case. It is traditionally the best form of cash. As more people turn to gold as a way to avoid standing in lines, the feds could ban it again. Generally, the price of gold rises with uncertainty and desperation.
