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.

Gold is Good as an Inflation Hedge, but Better as a Crisis Hedge

Whether there is hyperinflation or a banking collapse, Gold has historically been the asset to own in times of turmoil. Given its intrinsic value and safe-haven status, there is no doubt that Gold will remain a wealth preservation tool during financial crises. Crises do not come along often, but when they do, it is better to be safe than sorry. Gold is the perfect crisis insurance.

How Do a Nation’s Gold Reserves Affect its Economy?

Gold reserves is a wide topic and there are many subjects to be discussed. For instance, there must be connection among gold trade, gold reserves and gold prices. What are the effects of gold prices on governments reserved gold? and the most important question, what will be the impact after the end of raw gold? In general, I would like to sum up the main ideas of that topic.

Yellen Succeeds in bringing Asset Price Inflation - Result of this Success to be Feared

Yellen, like notorious previous Fed chiefs including Strong, Martin & Greenspan, can now claim success in having prolonged & strengthened an asset price inflation which otherwise may well have been about to enter its severe end phase. If history is any guide, the result of that success is to be feared. Asset price inflation goes through a mid-late phase where speculative temperatures move sharply.

Replace US Dollar With Gold As Global Currency & Make America Great Again: Trump

Mr. President: “No such thing as a global currency?” The dollar is the global currency. Want prosperity? Heed Chairman Greenspan and do not just view but restore “gold as the primary global currency.” President Trump: replace the dollar with gold as the global currency to make America great again. We have the gold.

A Gold Standard would've Prevented U.S. from this Extreme Indebtedness

Even Greenspan admits this is the case with debt: “We would never have reached this position of extreme indebtedness were we on the gold standard, because the gold standard is a way of ensuring that fiscal policy never gets out of line.” Certainly, debt loads have taken off since Nixon closed the gold window in 1971, breaking the last link with gold.

China will soon own the Largest Gold Reserves in the World

The US remains the world’s largest gold owner. But for how much longer? There are changes afoot. China is now the world’s largest gold producer. It has held this title since 2007. Not only that, but China is the world’s biggest importer too. Since 2011, China has imported more than 5,000 tonnes. Another 3 years at a similar rate & China will have imported more gold than there is at Fort Knox.

Declassified CIA Memos Reveal Probes Into Gold Market Manipulation

The CIA recently released a series of declassified 1970s memos relating to the gold market & the newly created SDR. Each of the declassified gold and SDR documents was marked “SECRET”. These memos give new insight how the CIA viewed the gold market, the perceived manipulation of gold & the potential for the SDR to become a gold substitute in the international monetary system.

Gold Treads Danger Zone - Yet Why Do Some Feel Optimistic?

The presence of considerable global economic, political, market risks and considering that the longer end of the yield curve and the sky-high USD have already tightened conditions, the Fed is likely to deliver a dovish hike later in December. This could mean the dollar & rates along the curve may slide lower & prompt technical traders to send gold back into $1,200-plus territory.

Gold and Silver Backed Insurance in Times of Turmoil

Investors buy physical gold and silver because it is a store of value – a way to protect your wealth from the relentless devaluation of fiat currencies – and a safe haven in times of turmoil. Buying gold numismatics is not the way to do this and buying gold numismatics that aren’t…well that’s being taken advantage of, to put it politely.

Gold Prices Bounce from Key Support - Bull Market Intact

Gold could see a better tone this week assuming that the dollar takes a bit of a breather from its upward advance and if U.S. equity markets pause after several weeks of heady gains. Despite on a short-term sell signal, the gold sector remains firmly on a long-term buy signal. Long-term signals can last for months and years and are more suitable for investors holding for long term.

This Confirms the Gigantic Potential of the Next Gold Price Rally

When you calculate the peak gold price from 1980 of $850 & adjust it to official inflation, you get a gold price of about $2,500. That’s the low-end as a new prediction. Not every cycle comes up with a huge rise. Especially the long-lasting bear markets brought the gold price weaker tops. The cycle we’re in now is a secular uptrend which gives the gold price a gigantic potential.

3 Aces that will Fuel the most Powerful Bull Market in Gold

3 Aces that make the case for a massive leap in the price of gold… Three pivotal factors—that you’d never hear about from the mainstream financial media—will coincide by the end of this year to provide a historic boon to gold prices. The bottom line is this “trifecta” of gold events is creating a once-in-a-lifetime setup for gold investors. One that will see the price of gold explode higher.

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.

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.

Negative Interest Rates: The Tax On Capital

Negative interest rates remove the positive “interest” paid to savers which is supposed to (partially) protect us from the rapacious “real inflation” running at 10+% per year. They go well beyond even this level of economic theft & criminality. Negative interest rates tax capital. How do you “stimulate” an economy by taxing capital? The inevitable result can only be the complete economic destruction.

Double Digit Inflation And The Rise of Gold

Inflation can really spin out of control very quickly. So is double-digit inflation rate within the next five years in the future? It’s possible. We would see a struggle from two to three, and then jump to six, and then jump to nine or ten. This is another reason why having a gold allocation now is of value. Because if and when these types of development begin happening, gold will be inaccessible.

Gold Wins in 3 out of 4 Scenarios - None Bode Well for the Economy

If you think of gold, the only way gold loses is if normal business and private sector cycles come back. If that is the case, gold goes back 100 dollars per ounce. The other outcomes, deflation, stagflation, hyperinflation are good for gold. So gold wins in three out of four scenarios, but none of the three are particularly appealing. Here is why.

A Gold Standard & Debt Jubilee for an Honest Money Monetary System

A gold standard handcuffs corrupt governments, forcing them to operate somewhere near a balanced budget, at all times. It handcuffs criminal central banks, restraining the speed with which they steal-by-inflation to a near-zero rate. Only alternative to Debt Slavery: Debt Jubilee – the complete renunciation of all debts. We absolutely require a gold standard but cannot till we don’t have a debt jubilee.

The Next Gold Confiscation and How to Protect Yourself

Many worry the U.S. government might confiscate gold again if it becomes desperate enough. I don’t think those fears are unfounded. If the price of gold explodes, I wouldn’t be surprised if Congress passes a Fair Share Gold Windfall Profit Tax Act levying a tax of 90%, or more on gold profits. Fortunately, there are some practical steps you can take to protect yourself from this.
