Evidence on Gold Price Manipulation is very Clear - Time to Buy is NOW

The big western banks have a monopoly on gold prices even if they do not have a monopoly on physical gold. But that could be about to change. Russia and China are not only building up physical reserves and exploring for more, they are building trading systems that allow for price discovery and leveraged trading in gold. Soon, the physical gold market will regain the upper hand as a price maker.

Commodity Cycle in Early Stages of Turning Bullish, Buy & Hold Gold and Silver

As a resource investor, it’s important to have some idea of whether you’re investing in a commodity at a time in the cycle when it’s favorable to do so. Chart reading, combined with supply & demand fundamentals, can help investors identify favorable times to be a buyer or seller. Right now, the cycle appears to be in the early stages of turning bullish for commodity prices.

Temporary Stimulus Policies turn Permanent; Credit & Debt Expansion is Here to Stay

Given the extraordinary failure of both Keynesian stimulus & private-sector credit growth to create a self-sustaining cycle of expansion whose benefits flow to the entire workforce rather than to the top few percent, what can we expect going forward? Can we just keep expanding the economy’s debt load every few years? What if household incomes continue declining? Are these trends sustainable?

Silver Prices Hold at Critical Level Amid Most Bearish Conditions

Hedge funds & other speculative traders as of last week held more bearish bets against silver prices than any time outside the summer 2015 peak. Silver prices found support [in early May] near $16.00. Something also changed in the silver market in May as US Silver Eagle sales have surged compared to the previous month. Also, the fundamentals in the US economy continue to disintegrate.

When will Equities and Gold Begin to Change Places?

In our view, Bullard has signaled the approaching demise of the Trump inflation trade. The equity markets have not yet got the memo. In the midst of a manic bubble, all news is still good news. The prop under the run up in stocks and the narrative behind the correction in gold are fading. We think equities and gold will soon begin to change places.

Rate Hikes Help Industrial Metals Rise Fastest - Silver, Copper & Zinc to Benefit Most

There aren’t many constants in the world of investing, and certainly not many things that rise in value like clockwork. In times of rate hikes, industrial metals rise fastest, and in today’s world, the type of metals in highest demand by China are going to rise the most. Silver is one metal that’s poised to move up & Zinc is trading for less than half of what it did in 1980.

Silver is the Buy of the Century - Even Better Than an Explosive Gold Rally

I think silver is the buy of the century! Do you want to turbo-charge your gold profits this year? I’m serious! Do you really want to make the most of what’s going to be an explosive rally in gold? If yes, then I have two pieces of advice for you. 1)Buy silver, not gold. 2) And own some off the beaten path junior minors. — Silver Is the Currency of the Educated.

Commodities Firms Gain Most as FTSE 100 Keeps Going Strong

It is clear that commodities prices have had a really big impact on the stock market in this period, and that this has been far greater than even the impact of the general election. With the pound not doing anything especially interesting at the time (it rose slightly against the dollar but was down against the euro), oil prices have certainly been one of the most important drivers on the market.

Paper Gold Price is not the Real Price of Gold

The paper gold market sets the gold price – the paper price that the false gold market trades at. That has very little to do with the price of gold which is what the physical market would trade at if there was not a manipulated paper market. But buyers & sellers are not concerned about the real price of gold. Because they have no intention of owning the physical since they don’t understand its function.

Silver - The Kryptonite to the Banking and Financial System

Why is silver the kryptonite to the banking and financial system? Gold, while the market has been proven to be rigged as well, has at least been able to climb higher than in 1980. The current global “price” of gold does not reflect it’s true value, however, it is still higher than 37 years ago. Silver is 66% cheaper than it was in 1980. Why is that? How can that be?

Historically the Best Assurance for Higher Gold Prices - Debt & Inflation

It is our opinion that the situation today best mirrors 1973, when gold prices gained 134% & gold miners rose 205%, rather than 2008. 1973 was spurred by overwhelming debt and inflation. It is no secret that the world’s governments will continue printing money to fund growth & to service debt. History is favoring a similar situation & gold will be the safe haven from inflation & uncertainty.

Gold and Silver is Always Least Attractive When Opportunity is Best

Raids in gold and silver prices often are executed rapidly and a rollercoaster pattern of up and down in prices often are manufactured over short-periods of time, as bankers design these raids to prevent people from seeing the forest from the trees. Now with significant dips, my warning is not against future dips in gold and silver prices, but rather not to miss opportunities that have now arisen.

The Perfect Precious Metals Storm - Made In America

The America as we have known – forever changed last night. And with it, the odds of the dollar’s death as “world reserve currency” increased dramatically. The one thing I’m sure of, is that if you hold at least a modicum of precious metals – physical gold and silver, held outside the financial system; no matter where you reside, your financial path forward will be exponentially easier.

The Manner will be More Shocking than the Rise in the Price of Silver

At the heart of the unprecedented move higher in the price of silver is the manner in which it will occur. It will be a price move like no other – the greatest short covering rally in history. That’s guaranteed because the COMEX silver short position is the largest & most concentrated short position in history. The largest short position ever holds the potential for the greatest short covering rally ever.

A Massive Rally in Silver Prices is More Than Likely - The Opportunity of a Lifetime

Silver prices moved from $4 in 2001 to over $49 in 2011, a whopping 1220% growth. But in the last bull market in silver, the dumb money waited till silver prices had already climbed to $45 before they finally convinced themselves to enter the market, just as the smart ones were getting ready to sell. If you were one of those who waited, hopefully you learned your lesson. Here is your second chance.

Silver Supply Deficit Rises on Stunning Decline in Production -The Impact on Prices

Writing on what is taking place as it pertains to world silver supply isn’t to forecast what the change will do to the price of silver in 2017, but rather how the declining trend will impact the silver price going forward. My focus is not to state that the silver price will be determined upon a single year’s worth of rising silver investment demand, rather to show that the world is waking up to the SILVER STORY.

Despite Irrational Selloff; Fundamentals Support Higher Silver Prices

Within the past month, silver has gone from being one of the best-performing assets in financial markets to giving away almost all of its gains this year, but one mining executive remains optimistic on the precious metal during this volatile period. Precious metals will see higher volatility in prices, while markets will remain relatively range-bound until fundamentals come back into focus.

Is This Oil Price Rally for Real or Just a Dead Cat Bounce?

What a difference a week makes. Oil prices are more than 9% above last Friday’s capitulation low. The bounce has legs in the short-term but it doesn’t alter the long-term bearish story. U.S. oil inventories just had their largest drop of 2017 & a fifth consecutive weekly decline. OPEC is expected to extend production cuts on May 25. Goldman reiterated its bullish call for an imminent supply deficit.

How Will Brexit Impact the UK's Oil and Gas Markets?

The level of concern surrounding Brexit & the UK’s energy market is slowly rising. The situation has been exacerbated by the details of a North Sea industry report, which suggest that Britain’s oil and gas trades bill could almost double to £1.1 billion per annum in a worse case Brexit scenario. This remains one of many small elements that underline the danger posed by Brexit, yet strike a huge blow.
