Forget About Yields & Interest Rates - Gold In Direct Competition With Equities

Gold prices have registered just about the best performance across virtually all investment classes over the past six or seven months. Gold stands to gain much when Wall Street tumbles, an outcome that seems increasingly likely as world stock markets edge higher despite widespread expectations of slow economic growth and disappointing corporate earnings.

This Time Central Banks Will Need A Bailout: Make Sure You Buy Gold

In the late ‘90s, Wall Street bailed out a hedge fund. In 2008, the Federal Reserve bailed out Wall Street. But in 2018, it’s the central banks that will need a bailout. And what will happen to the dollar when the Fed loses international credibility? I worked hard for my money & I want to preserve it. I don’t want to see it wiped out. Gold will preserve my wealth & that’s why I have it.

Marc Faber on Cashless Society Insanity & Why Wall Street Hates Gold

Basically, everybody – the media, the government and the financial sector – detests and hates gold because it’s honest. You cannot print it and double the supply of gold overnight. They want to move into cashless society so they can control you. If they introduce a cashless society, I think it’s going to be very likely that the government will try to take the gold away from you.

The Fed Is Spooking the Markets, and Not China

The Fed has always known that the fragile economy created through stimulus might prove unable to survive even the most marginal of rate increases. The markets have now panicked that the rate hikes are about to occur in the face of a weakening economy. How much further will markets have to fall before the Fed comes to the rescue by calling off any threatened rate increase?

Nine Years on, People Forget How Nasty an Interest Rate Increase Can Be

If the Fed raises rates, I would expect for the US economy to come close to a recession, more deflation & probably some disruption in equity markets. If they don’t raise rates as the decision is data-dependent & it’s coming in weak – you might actually see stocks higher at the end of the year than they are now based on more free money.

Gold: The Year Ahead For Gold Investors

After some three years of disappointment, 2015 promises to be a good year for gold investors. A number of factors, some interrelated, will drive gold prices higher. Here’s my short list of the top gold-price drivers I expect will combine to reestablish the long-term uptrend in the yellow metal’s price.

7 Questions Gold Bears Must Answer

A glance at any gold price chart reveals the severity of the bear mauling it has endured over the last 3 years. In addition, a correction-defying Wall Street stock market & the never-ending rain of disdain for gold from the mainstream & it may seem that there’s no reason to buy gold. If we’re in a bear market, then I have a few questions.

US Debt Reaches $18 Trillion; Surges 70% In ‘Recovery’ of President Obama

With the US national debt or government debt now at over a staggering $18 trillion, it means that each household in the US now carries the burden of $124,000 in national debt alone – or $56,378 per individual. This does NOT include private or household debt, mortgages, personal loans, credit card debt, student loans, car loans, etc.

Shale Oil 2015 = Subprime Mortgages 2008

There is a nearly 100% chance that oil prices will remain mired in “shale oil death” territory for as long as the low cost Middle Eastern producers need to recapture market share – and the longer this takes, the more catastrophic losses will occur to shale oil investors – the only viable American industry in the post-2008 world of QE.

Why The Stock Market Is Detached From The Economy

While statistical economic data suggests that the economy is rapidly healing, it has only been so for a very small percentage of the players. For most American’s they have only watched the “rich” prosper as the Federal Reserve put Wall Street before Main Street. Moreover; global deflationary pressures have only begun to wash back on the domestic economy.

Silver and Gold - What Happens Next?

What do the charts show? Obviously they show silver and gold prices falling, almost relentlessly since 2011. Prices have collapsed, technical indicators are deeply “oversold” on quarterly, monthly, weekly & daily charts. Expect prices to rise when they are finally allowed to rise. When? Ask the HF Traders or central Banks.

How Debt Was Used to Create the Biggest Financial Heist in History

Experts have come up with various reasons behind the financial crisis. Some feel the crisis was because Wall Street was greedy. But then the question to ask is: When was Wall Street not greedy & so why didn’t financial crises happen all the time? Its because never before in history have the entire world’s finances been so distorted by debt.

Does This Look Like A Housing Recovery To You?

The chart that you are about to view is clear evidence that we are in the midst of a long-term economic decline. It shows what has happened to the homeownership rate in the U.S. since the year 2000, and as you can see it has been collapsing since the peak of the housing market back in 2007. Does this look like a housing recovery to you?

For Bank Of America, Crime Is Now An Ordinary Course Of Business

Perhaps an even more relevant question than how long will the EPS “addback” bullshit continue, is how long will the regulators and enforcers allow Bank of America to exist as an organization for which two-thirds of its “ordinary course business” is, for lack of a better word, crime?

Evidence: The New York Fed Serves The Interests Of Goldman Sachs

The New York Fed has been caught red-handed serving the interests of Goldman Sachs, and no number of strongly-worded denials is going to change that. A very brave lawyer named Carmen Segarra made a series of audio recordings while she was working for the New York Fed. Sadly, this is not likely to change anything soon.

Doubling Down on Inflation

The benefits of inflation are supposed to be compounded by rising stock & real estate prices, creating a wealth effect for the owners of those assets which subsequently trickles down to the rest of the economy. In other words, seed the economy with money & inflation & watch it grow. But why has growth yet been a no show?

The Nail In Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Accepts Oil Payment In Ruble, Yuan

Russia will export energy to either Europe or China, and receive payment in either Rubles or Yuan, in effect making the two currencies equivalent as far as the Eurasian axis is concerned, but most importantly, transact completely away from the US dollar thus, finally putin'(sic) in action the move for a Petrodollar-free world.

Bond Market is taking Advantage of Janet Yellen`s Dovishness

Policymakers have in the past always been mindful to at least talk the market out of being so blatantly one-sided as is so common for Wall Street. Get more Hawkish Yellen, & start at Jackson Hole, as bond market traders are already discounting this speech once again. In short they are taking advantage of your dovishness!

The US Gold in Fort Knox is Secure, Gone, or Irrelevant

The Federal Reserve has printed well over $3,000,000,000,000 since the financial crisis of 2008 – about ten times current market value of all gold that US supposedly still has in its vaults. All the US gold, when priced in current dollars, seems rather unimportant in relation to the QE1, QE2, QE3, QE to Infinity, and “print or die” economics.

Why The Bubble Of False Prosperity In US Economy May Be About To Burst

There is no way that this bubble of false prosperity in US economy was going to last forever. It was just based on a pyramid of debt & false promises. The global financial system is in far worse condition than it was just prior to the financial crisis of 2008. Here are 14 reasons why the bubble of false prosperity may be about to burst.
