Hold Physical Gold and Silver - Unprecedented Risks the World faces, calls for Desperate Measures

Gold and silver are held as insurance for wealth preservation purposes. The economic, financial and geopolitical risks in the world today are unprecedented in history. We are facing the dual risk of a financial crisis with a failing banking system, as well as insolvent sovereign states, leading to all currencies being debased to zero. Investors must hold an important amount of physical gold and silver.

This Explains the Current Manipulated take-down in the Price of Gold

This explains the current manipulated take-down in the price of gold despite rising seasonal demand from India & China. There is a direct correlation between this sudden leap in the amount of gold swaps conducted by the BIS between July and August and the price attack on gold. The outstanding balance is now higher than it was in 2011, leading to the violent take-down of the price of gold then.

Why Investing in Gold is more Attractive after Prices Break above $1300

Gold is showing decent strength going into the end of summer breaking above strong psychological and technical level of $1300 per ounce which can finally confirm the beginning of long-term bull market. There is no lack of fundamentals supporting the move upwards. Here are the 13 most important drivers of the coming long term precious metals bull cycle.

Gold Prices may be Slow to Rise, but the Direction seems Completely Certain

Gold is challenging the $1300 level for the third time this year. If it breaks upwards out of this consolidation phase convincingly, it could be an important event, signalling a dollar that will continue to weaken. The factors driving the dollar lower are several & disparate. Here is a summary of these trends & explains why the consequence appear certain to drive gold, priced in dollars, much higher.

Blockchain to Replicate the Reliability of Gold via a Cryptocurrency called GOLD

GoldMint has created a new cryptocurrency called GOLD, which will run on a Blockchain like many different cryptocurrencies in existence. GOLD is backed by both physical gold as well as gold exchange traded funds (ETFs.) The potential for this is endless and the element of trust in gold can be increased manifold. It has the potential to free gold from its limitations.

Blockchain Revolution is Gunning for the $27 Billion Gold Market Trading

About $27 billion of gold changes hands every day in over-the-counter markets where settlements can sometimes take days, leaving price risk for buyers & sellers. Using blockchain promises more transparency, security & speedier deals. It also could attract new participants at a time when investors are souring on gold-backed ETFs, a key source of growth in physical demand over the past decade.

Gold Prices Poised for an Upside Explosion after Paper Gold Bear Raids Failed

Gold seems poised to resume its march to $1,300 after the paper gold bear raids of late June. Fundamentals are stronger than ever for gold prices. A weak dollar is the Fed’s only chance for more inflation. And that means a higher dollar price for gold. Geopolitical risks are piling up from North Korea, to Syria, to the South China Sea. Get ready for an explosion to the upside in gold prices.

Why Cryptocurrencies Can Never Replace Physical Gold

Gold is rare enough to be a true store of value. There’s no danger of it becoming ubiquitous, even if a dozen super-high-grade deposits were discovered tomorrow. If ever the lights go out, due to an electromagnetic pulse, either as an act of war or through a strong solar flare, Bitcoin will vanish instantly. Physical gold, on the other hand, will still be there and ready to use as needed.

Gold or Bitcoin - What's more likely to be Valuable a Hundred Years from now?

If you were to ask me which I think is more likely to be around a hundred years from now, it’s gold… every time. Nothing has usurped it for millennia as a globally-accepted medium of exchange or store of value, and I don’t think bitcoin will do so either. Gold can’t be altered. Bitcoin runs on a protocol that can be changed. Gold has stood the test of time of thousands of years. Bitcoin is just beginning.

For How Long will Gold and Silver Continue to be "Rigged Markets"?

The discussion surrounding the likelihood of gold and silver being “rigged markets” has been rendered moot by way of the countless flash crashes – More recently, the one in silver on Friday July 7. Had that flash crash occurred in stocks, they would have cancelled the trades. In the silver market, the damage done by the intervention was successful in destroying morale. How long will this continue?

Nothing is More out of Favor than Gold Right Now

Gold is an inflation hedge, I guess people forgot. It’ll respond. Sometimes it just takes a while to get the ball rolling. Best of all, I love all the commentary about how higher rates are bearish. Personally, I love markets that are out of favor. You can’t get any more out favor than gold right now. I have no problem waiting. I’ll be selling when all the chest-pounding, back-slapping gold bears will be buying.

The Most Interesting Aspect in Silver Charts is the Volume Behavior

The only interesting aspect of silver is the volume behavior. In the past few months, downside volume has been way above average, yet there has been no giving way of the December 2016 low. In a truly weak market, the December low should not have held. Volume read from the weekly gives credence to the possibility of a bear trap. We are also seeing the possibility of strong money covering shorts.

Why Currencies Unbacked by Gold - the Sound Money are Doomed to Collapse

Money is the anchor in a transaction, and contrasts with the subjective value placed on goods. This article explains the money side of prices, and why government currencies, unbacked by gold, are doomed to collapse. And why gold, which is the sound money chosen by markets throughout history, will retain or increase its purchasing power measured in the goods it buys over the coming years.

Fundamentals in place for Gold with Fed Tightening amid Unjustified Stock Market Valuations

The S&P 500 Index has reached new, all-time highs. While the current stock market does not have the same feeling of mania seen before the tech bust, in the context of an economy that struggles to achieve 2% growth, we struggle to justify current stock market valuations – and remember, the Fed is tightening. Gold should also benefit if the US dollar trend seen so far in 2017 continues.

Paper Gold Bomb Detonated when World's largest Buyers were Closed - Why?

The day was well chosen: Two of the largest buyers of physical gold in the world, India + Turkey, were closed for the observance of a religious holiday. And Shanghai closed for the day 31 minutes before the paper gold dump. Why would a large quantity seller sell when the largest buyers are not in the market at the time of sale? This is unadulterated BIS/ECB/BoE/Fed sponsored market intervention.

Will Gold Investors get more Bullish in 2017 or will the Bears Take Control?

Gold prices have climbed by around 8% year to date, close to what they gained for all of last year & could rally further, potentially to as high as $1,500 – A 20% rise from its current level of roughly $1,250. Yesterday, gold futures slipped & broke numerous technical levels, but as it bounces back off support, the question is will the bounce continue? It also seems that investors will not abandon gold.

You know why You need Gold Investment, Here's how You go about Investing in Gold

I Remain Bullish on Both, but Prefer Physical Gold to Gold Stocks

Gold stocks will also respond to increasing gold prices. But ultimately, a gold stock typically represents a stake in a mining company, not the physical gold it mines. Of course, I remain bullish on both. But a rapid increase in demand from Middle East Muslims could easily ignite the fuse for gold prices, and premiums, to scream higher. Buy physical gold bullion before they do.

Here's what will Boost or Smash Gold Prices in a Major Way

Since 2016 began, physical gold and gold stocks have been pretty solid investments, with physical gold prices gaining about 19% and numerous gold stocks rising by well over 100%.

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.
