Last 2 Times Equity Valuations Were This High, Result Was A Historic Crash

The current P/E expansion cycle is now one of the largest in history. Although equity valuations are typically highest during periods of low interest rates, the current 18x P/E stands at the upper end of the historical valuation range.

Silver Prices on Fire - Can hit $25 an ounce by the End of 2016

Silver has outshined its sister metal since the U.K.’s decision to leave the European Union sparked turmoil in global equities markets, and the rally could lift the white metal to a three-year high.

Those levels would take prices to their highest since at least 2013.

Gold And Silver – The Only Money That Matters

Gold and silver did not put in a strong rally, although most seem to think that way. The fiats declined in their imaginary value.

Gold Shortage, Worst In 21st Century... And India Just Made It Worse

One event that may stretch the already ridiculous disconnect between physical & swap-based gold, is that India scrapped a rule mandating traders to export 20% of all gold imported into the country, in a surprise move that could cut smuggling and raise legal shipments into the world’s second-biggest consumer of the metal after China.

American Financial Markets Have No Relationship To Reality

Understand The Coming Big Change in Gold Investing
