The GOLD Investment Thesis rests on the Gross Over-Issuance of DEBT

Every measure of domestic & global debt is significantly worse today than at its financial-crisis peak. Our gold investment thesis rests on the gross over-issuance of paper claims (debt) against comparatively modest levels of productive output (GDP). The US dollar’s extended decline & gold’s breakout signal growing market skepticism that the era of central bank stimulus is coming to a close.

Trump & the Monumental Magnitude of the US Debt Trap

What lies directly ahead, therefore, is another bumbling attempt by the White House and Congressional Republicans to hammer out an FY 2018 budget resolution and what amounts to a 10-year fiscal plan. So there flat-out must be big-time deficit offsets or there will not be close to 218 votes for what would otherwise be upwards of $15 trillion in added public debt over the coming decade.

Read America's Credit Card Statement (No Password Required)

You might not be aware of it, but America’s credit card–our national debt–comes with its own disclosure statement. You know those disclosures on your credit card statements? That it will take 27 years to pay off your balance if you only make the minimum payment each month, and so on? What will replace the current system after it self-destructs? That’s the question.

Mega Investors Loading up on Gold - Are They Cornering the Gold Market?

China has become a debt crisis waiting to happen. Central banks in Europe have deployed negative interest rates that rapidly erode value. And in the United States wealth has been borrowed from future economic growth to feed bubbles in stocks and real estate. That’s why billionaires are rapidly rushing into their old standby, gold. It’s the only asset that can be trusted right now.

The Return of the US Government’s Statutory Debt Ceiling

The budgetary bottleneck arrives again next month, when the latest suspension of the limit expires on March 15. Back in October 2015, Congress decided to punt on the issue by suspending the debt ceiling—with a hard end date. The US Treasury Department has been actively working to keep the nation’s total public debt outstanding from rising any faster than possible since late Nov 2016.

A Mega Sell-Off in U.S. Government Debt is Underway... 1 more Reason to Buy Gold

Foreign creditors are selling U.S. government debt like never before. Last year, China alone sold $188 billion worth of U.S. Treasurys while Japan sold about $21 billion worth of U.S. debt in December. Japan & China are America’s biggest creditors. But they’re not the only ones pulling out either. Saudi Arabia, Belgium & Switzerland have recently become net sellers, too.

Silver Prices Will Rally Substantially Higher. Here's Why

It is more sensible to own physical silver, knowing it is grossly undervalued compared to the S&P, national debt, total sovereign debt, and more. JPMorgan is becoming more aggressive in acquiring physical silver and gold while at the same time reducing its COMEX short position in each almost as aggressively. It’s hard to imagine a more bullish backdrop for silver prices.

Gold and Silver Market – Surviving A Collapse?

The acquisition of gold and silver over the essential commodities of life is a failed strategy & plays into the hands of the elitists who intend to buy them back at huge discounts when the markets collapse & people become desperate for the commodities they really need just to stay alive. Hope & pray for the best but prepare for the worst in response to what history teaches us.

Risk-On Mania Infected Markets will soon be Gold Silver Friendly

The Trump election has ignited a market mania, to everyone’s surprise. In fact, we think that risks are rising, not falling, but that’s not what the markets think as of now. Actually, in economic terms, nothing real has changed for the better & the relief probably won’t last long. And then we will see what the world really looks like. Guess it will be very gold silver friendly.

Silver Prices to Explode on Exponentially Increasing National Debt

The U.S. National Debt is a “train-wreck.” Silver and gold prices erratically increase along with debt. Given that silver prices are near the low end of their 20 year “megaphone” pattern, expect much higher silver prices. Further, the cost of production is increasing rapidly and the ore quality is declining. Expect prices to increase based on limited supply.

"Too Many Promises That Can't be Kept" - The Fed Can't Raise Rates: Paul Volcker

One can’t really blame the government for continuing its debt-funded spending spree – despite protests to the contrary – after all rates are so low, it would be irrational not to take advantage and add on more debt. However, it is here that the punchline from the Volcker op-ed kicks in, and explains why the Fed is stuck and will find it next to impossible to hike rates.

Silver Prices to Increase Exponentially in the Long Term

Silver prices, relative to the S&P 500 Index, are currently quite low. Central banks have levitated stock prices and “discouraged” silver prices since 2011. What if the S&P continues its exponential increases and the ratio reverts back toward the high end of its range? The silver to S&P ratio could be around 3.0, and the annual average price for silver could be roughly $100 – $150.

Here Is Why The US Dollar Collapse Is Imminent

The list of reasons why the US dollar could collapse is getting bigger daily. Here are some factors – Reckless monetary policies by the Federal Reserve. U.S. national debt continues to increase. Other currencies like the Chinese yuan are gaining a significant amount of attention on a global level. Central banks are starting to lose trust in the US dollar as well. Read more…

Debt Addiction Will Drive Gold And Silver Prices Higher - Guaranteed!

Gold and silver are finite. Fiat is infinite. When the infinite begins to chase the finite in more earnest, it is anyone’s guess as to how the valuing of gold and silver will unfold. Those who have placed their trust in the natural order of supply and demand will amply be rewarded once the unnatural forces of fiat evil lose their incestuous grip of faux, yet real, power.

National Debt: US Economy Priced in Gold - Cause For Alarm

National debt has increased exponentially for the past 50 years. The 35-year graph shows on average the national debt has increased rapidly, even when priced in gold. Debt is increasing far too rapidly & gold is underpriced. The current national debt is equal to about 100 times the total value, at current gold prices, of the gold “officially” stored in Fort Knox. This should be cause for alarm.

A Rush to Gold and Silver Simply Indicates the Falling Influence of US Dollar

While the DOW and S&P languished in the agony of three crashes from March of 2000 through 2009, gold and silver got no respect from Wall Street or financial media. That’s despite gold doubling in paper money terms 2.8 times from 2001 to 2011. But no market goes up or down forever. After years of massive money printing & price manipulation, the gold and silver bull is back.

Higher Gold Prices can Produce the Inflation the Elites Seek

There are three ways out of debt. One is default, which is not a good option. One is growth, but it’s not happening. The third way is inflation. The government has to have inflation. If it doesn’t, there’s going to be a crack-up in the national debt. But we’re not getting inflation from monetary policy. There’s another option & that’s to bid up the price of gold.

Physical Gold, the Misery Index and Monetary Insanity

The official national debt of $19 trillion, measured in gold, is about 15 billion ounces – around 100 times the quantity of gold supposedly stored in Fort Knox. Given the insanity of endless borrow & spend programs, ever increasing debt, overpriced stocks & bonds, desperation & delusions, and more … have you stacked physical gold in preparation for the inevitable consequences?

Gold and the Postponed Stock Market Correction

Is it just me or is the next market correction taking way longer than it should? In other words, have the powers that be figured out how to keep the music playing better than ever? The Fed must have inflation & will do everything possible to create it. Central banks as well as markets have become aware that monetary policy has limitations. And the gold price is sniffing this out.

The Fed Blinked; Dollar Plunged; Gold Rallied

Gold has fallen for the last few years based on this false belief that everything is great and we’re going to have a return to normalcy, and the Fed’s going to shrink its balance sheet. Nothing could be further from the truth. This gold price today, is at the highest it has been since the Fed hike. And this collapse in the dollar today is just the beginning.
