Sellers of Physical Gold Did Not Help Crash Gold Prices - Then Who Did?

The total volume of the crash in excess of 1,000 tonnes of paper gold contracts, dumped on the market in a matter of hours, makes it pretty clear that something ‘fishy’ was going on.

Until the intellectual battle is won, paper money & central banksters that manage it will continue their reign of financial terror.

Peak Gold Production and the Implications for Gold Prices

The global gold output has been contracting since 2013. There are just not that many new mines being found and developed, and this is “very positive” for the gold price going forward.

Demand for gold, on the other hand, should remain strong, helping to support prices even more.

Are You sure there will be Enough Gold to match the Exploding Demand?

So… Has the world reached peak gold? And what does it spell for gold prices?

Negative Yields On Global Government Debt Drives Gold Demand

It’s more about protection of wealth rather than creation. That’s where gold plays.

How China will Continue to Gain Influence in the World Gold Market

The gold market will soon be very different than from what we see today, largely due to the current developments in China.

The Best Way to Prepare for a Gold Bull Market

Gold mining stocks are leveraged to the price of gold. A small jump in gold prices can cause large gold stocks to jump two or three times higher.

U.S. Gold Production Finally Hit Hard Due To Low Price

The lower price of gold has finally taken its toll on U.S. gold production. Domestic gold mine supply fell considerably in May compared to the same period last year.

The Coming Gold Rush: There’s A Lot Less Gold In The World

Don’t count on some group to magically save the system by taking the supposed 100,000’s mt of gold hidden in vaults around the world to back the soon to be worthless Dollar. There’s a hell of a lot less gold in the world than we realize. And when the Dollar finally does die, I would imagine there will even be a great deal less to buy.

Gold has never been more Valuable than it is Today

We know the central banks have every motive in the world to suppress the price of gold. If you understand this risk of financial collapse has never been higher than it is today then you then you know your insurance has never been more necessary or valuable. This risk will ultimately be borne out in the failure of what we use as money.

Zimbabwe's Gold Mines On Verge Of Collapse Due To Low Bullion Prices

Zimbabwe’s gold mining firms are suffering huge losses due to low gold prices “& could collapse unless the government reduces royalties for producers, the Chamber of Mines said.

Why Russia’s Unfazed by Falling Oil Prices

Oil is not quite as powerful a weapon against modern-day Russia as one might think. If Russia ramps up production to raise revenues, it will lead to a bigger fall in oil prices. And one of the primary victims will be US shale production. The slide in oil prices threatens American energy independence & emboldens rather than weakens Russia.
