One can easily foresee the financial and political turmoil looming large just ahead. And, there is lots of that coming our way.

Gold Edging Close to Triggering a “Buy” Signal. Will You Buy?

Banks added 27 tonnes to their reserves in August in an effort to diversify their assets and hedge against their own policies. In a survey of 19 central bank reserve managers, the WGC found that close to 90 percent of them have plans either to increase their gold reserves or maintain them at current levels. Investors might consider doing the same, for the very same reasons.

Has Gold Deviated from Long-Term Upward Trajectory or Again a Bout of Paper Manipulation?

Much of the recent selling has come from large-scale speculators operating in futures markets. Meanwhile, physical demand from retail investors, most importantly, hedge funds & other large-scale institutional investors has remained firm.

Plunge in Gold and Silver may soon be Reversed with Multi-fold Vengeance

The Stability Regarding Purchasing Power of Gold is Unprecedented

An often-perceived analysis in the gold community is that gold is the constant in our global economy. While there is no exact constant in economics, the stability of gold’s purchasing power is unprecedented. Not only on a gold standard the metal shows it’s constant nature, but also off the gold standard gold’s purchasing power is remarkably constant, albeit more volatile in the short term.

The SDR Is Designed As A Rescue Operation For The US Dollar

The IMF created the SDR Substitution Account in 1969. T he core idea is that the SDR Substitution Account Central Banks allows to diversify their existing US dollar reserves in a one-time conversion away from the dollar into IMF’s SDR, comprised of the US dollar, European euro, Japanese yen and British pound, in an off-market transaction, so as not to depress the dollar’s exchange rate.

More Reasons to Own Gold and Silver With Each Passing Day

Does a 0.25% Fed Funds rate increase really change the fiat currency destruction policy adopted for decades & provide an impetus to sell gold and silver in exchange for devaluing paper & digital fiat currencies? There is no end in sight to the fiat currency purchasing power devaluation objectives of Central Bankers & start converting fiat currencies into wealth preserving physical gold and silver.

The Greatest One Day Global Stock Market Loss In World History

Worldwide markets haemorrhaged more than $2 trillion in paper wealth on Friday, according to data from S&P Global, the worst on record.

Friday may turn out to be just the tip of the iceberg.

Brexit or Not - No Dearth of Solid Reasons For Gold Prices to Surge

Should the British reject devolution, gold prices might briefly move a little lower – even though, in the days running up to today’s referendum, the financial markets may already have “priced in” a no-vote.

What China's Devaluation Means For The Future Of The Dollar

Nearly every government, commercial bank & central bank in the world holds US dollars in reserve as they are used as the primary currency in global trade.

To complete the French triple whammy offensive against the US Dollar, French FM says “now is the right time to bolster the use of the euro” adding, more ominously for the dollar, “we sell ourselves aircraft in dollars.

Quantitative Easing To Qualitative Guidance: What To Expect From FOMC Today
