  • ECB $1.3 Trillion Money Printing Visualized

    The ECB announced QE of 50 billion euro/month, probably for 2 years. That amounts to 1.1 trillion euros or $1.3 trillion dollars.

    It looks something like this. The Fed, the ECB and the BOJ will all happily intersect with each other in 2017.

    If everything goes as planned, this is very bullish for the U.S. dollar. Considering the fact that global money printing has just increased through the ECB, gold will benefit greatly.

    As always, European bonds will not be a good investment when the ECB prints money, because the currency of those bonds gets devalued, so I would definitively avoid that.

    For all those Europeans who bought gold in advance, congratulations!

    We'll see what happens tomorrow...

  • China Power Consumption Forecasts Slow But Steady Growth

    The latest China power consumption numbers forecast slow growth, but it is improving a bit. With 5% yoy power consumption growth, I believe 7% GDP growth will be the norm.

  • LBMA To Stop Reporting GOFO Rates In February 2015

    In September I reported that the LBMA could stop reporting the GOFO rates.

    Well, we got notice that LBMA will stop reporting the GOFO rates from February onwards.

    This will give a green sign for all the gold manipulators.
