Why Digital Safe Havens won’t ever Kill the real ones - Gold and Silver

Gold and silver are real & tangible assets, similar to currencies but unlike stocks & government bonds. Gold and silver are also durable with an effectively infinite longevity & thus completely different to any other assets & this gives them a prominent position as safe havens, and they are precisely what the likes of Bitcoin lack. Can the intangible assets really replace the tangible?

Would You Invest in Gold And Silver Bullion or Bitcoin?

From $412, one year ago, to $1290 on Friday, bitcoin has gained over 200%. Compared to the price action in bitcoin, gold seems boring. While this is a virtue for gold to be used as money (and a vice for bitcoin), it does tend to attract those who just want to get into the hottest casino du jure. There’s more than enough irony to go around.

U.S. Favors Debt over Equity, Speculation over Investment, Buy Gold while You can

While the animal spirits may have taken over the equity markets and have ignored the gold market, we should recall that there is a reason why Keynes called them animal and not human spirits. Americans have ransomed the US economy because their policies have favored debt over equity and speculation over productive investment, placing gold in a more envious position.

Why Uncertain Times in the US & UK Have Made Precious Metals Surge

Hard Brexit talks by Theresa May & recent actions by Donald Trump in the US may have had a significant impact on precious metal prices. The events on both sides of the Atlantic have seen investments in things that are not tied to stocks or currencies like precious metals & even Bitcoin surge, and these are going to be watched very closely by anyone concerned with the markets in the coming weeks.

Gold Price Forecast: The Factors Influencing Gold Prices in 2017

Here are three things that are currently taking place that could have significant positive impacts on gold prices. They shouldn’t be ignored by investors, whatsoever. Every day that gold prices remain subdued, the precious metal becomes an even better opportunity. Keeping everything in mind, I am not ruling out $2,000/ounce gold prices in the next few years. It’s possible.

Cash Is No Longer King: The Phasing Out of Physical Money Begins

The stage for inevitable demise of paper money is set. The cash that allows free transactions without tax burdens or state scrutiny won’t be around much longer. There will be many rationalizations for a cashless society in the years to come, but without fixing this broken financial system first, this will only ensure that despotism gains an even sturdier foothold.

A Path to Making Gold and Silver the Currency of the 21st Century

For better or worse, the digital economy is here to stay. It can be mostly for the better. Electronic gold and silver payments using innovations like BitGold and the Gold Standard Society’s Digital Gold 2.0 may prove in the future that free-market hard money is viable for everyday transactions. All it will then need is the right to compete directly with the U.S. dollar as legal tender.

Bitcoin Or Gold: What Is More Valuable?

Mr Ferrier is alleged to have told Mr Wright gold was good security in the event the ‘funny money’ of Bitcoin failed. In December 2013 Mr Wright filed actions in the Federal Court and NSW Supreme Court suing for his share of the gold, claiming the sum of $84.42m based on the market value of the alleged Bitcoin payments for the gold.

Comex Registered Gold Hits New Low - Now 293 Oz Of Paper Gold Per Physical Oz

Many vaults continue to see either outright withdrawals of Registered Gold or comparable adjustments. How much longer can this exponential surge in the dilution ratio continue? We don’t know, although with less than 5 tons of registered gold left in the Comex vault system, we hope that the mystery of what is really going on at the Comex will finally be unveiled.

Gold and Silver Money Has Devolved Into Debt and Plastic

Gold and silver were supposedly no longer needed in the financial system & gold has become a “traditional” asset, taxed like an investment & is no longer considered an alternate currency. The Chinese, Russians, Arabs & Indians disagreed, but gold and silver prices have been “managed” so westerners would not lose confidence in the paper & digital replacements for real money.

Mysterious "Massive" Seller Who Flash Crashed Gold In 2014 Finally Revealed

Gold will remain manipulated & viciously slammed until such time as the suppressed price can be allowed to recover its fair value, which will only happen once those who are accumulating massive amount of physical have their fill. In the meantime, if you can’t beat them may as well join them, as long as physical gold continues to be quite explicitly “on sale.”

Opposing Forces At Play In Gold, Silver (Precious Metals Complex)

Good news for gold bulls is the bottom of the trading range has been tested a thrice so far & the price action looks encouraging for gold. But silver & the miners have broken through major supports. Its fair to say there is a mixed picture in the precious metals complex. Here are the possible triggers that may reverse the gold downtrend.

You’re Missing What Really Matters About Bitcoin

Cryptocurrencies, of which Bitcoin is the first & currently the most important, are a revolution in commerce. Many things have started to change. Bitcoin is at the center of it & Bitcoin kids are the key. We can fight it, join it, dance, mourn, or simply defend our ignorance, but the time we’ve been waiting for stands before us, right now.

Government Attempts to Regulate Bitcoin - Will Fail

Whether or not the digital-currency of the future is BitCoin or one if it’s many competitors, the philosophical and technological leap to non-government, non-oversight currencies has already been made. That genie cannot be put back in the bottle. Only the government has not yet realized this.

Will there be an Epic (final) US Dollar Rally?

The overall down-trend of the US dollar is clear. But one must remember that counter-trends are typically far more powerful than many expect – and many counter-trends last far longer than expected as well. Let’s discuss the factors that could conceivably bring about the mother of all counter-rallies in the USD.

Of Paper Money, Digital Money (Bitcoin) And Gold

Money – authentic money must be the most marketable of all commodities. This is why gold is money! Silver follows in second place. No fiat currency has ever been successfully introduced into circulation without a monetary value ultimately derived from when that currency was gold or silver money.

Owning Gold as a Hedge Against Paper Currency

A major reason why gold so often looks good is that the alternatives so often look so bad. Money, by definition, observation and experience, has no intrinsic value. It is just a way to hold your place in line. A virtual currency such as bitcoin may someday prove superior, but for now gold is No. 1.

Gold And Silver Reverse Bubble - A Huge Rally When Broken

Given the gross manipulation of both gold and silver, once this artificial reverse bubble bursts, the results will be equally distorted to the upside – The onus is on buyers to demonstrate the ability to effect change. As for now, there is no evidence that buyers are stepping in and taking over.
