  • Gold Crash: Our Asset's Bitter Fall From Glory - Are You Prepared? [View article]
    The problem with Dent's thesis is that he has imbibed too much of the government koolaid; especially the phoney CPI numbers. In the last five years, health care up 40%, Hamburg has more than doubled; cereal boxes have been downsized from 16 to 11-13 ounces; canned goods from 16 to 12 ounces. ALL AT HIGHER PRICES. Property taxes are going back up after declining with the effects of the housing bubble. College tuition up 20%. The only saving grace has been gasoline, but current prices are still 10% higher than 5 years ago.

    As for Dent's gold views:

    What doesn't he get about the global fiat Ponzi? After the financial implosion, what is the only backing of any new currency that will be accepted by the global population?

  • Gold And The Euro: Just How Strong Is The Yellow Metal? [View article]
    I question the author's statement: "the long term average value for the silver gold ratio is 55:1.

    Actually, from Roman times forward, that is incorrect. It's more like 20:1. Keep in mind that even today mined ore comes out at a ratio of 8-9:1 and above ground gold (that mined over the centuries) is far greater than all known existing stocks of silver. The current GSR OF 70+ is a screaming buy for silver.

  • The 4 Million Share Trade At Exeter Resources [View article]
    Hebba: the play maybe for the copper, rather than the gold; although there is one entity that could use both; the Chinese. The indicated copper reserves are gigantic, and even though the price of copper is down now, the Chinese always buy when there's blood in the streets. The gold may just be a nice extra.

  • The Consequences Of The Fed's Interest Rate Hike [View article]
    The prospect for financial armageddon is all over the alternate media and should not be dismissed out of hand by those who are able to think critically. The fact that it is no longer theory that markets have been rigged for decades and that government economic statistics are outright feel good disinformation and propaganda indicates that the Fed is one big dog and pony show to distract the people from the true state of the economy which, compared to that of the Great Depression, may be in far worse shape. Even a nominal rate hike would likely trigger a domino effect in the derivative market which would cause the global banking cabal to collapse; the real worth of bank balance sheet assets is ephemeral; perhaps at little as 10% of stated value. Gold (and silver) historically are the only true "money", but aside from that, an insurance policy that should be considered as the ultimate safety net.

  • Why I'm Bullish On Silver [View article]
    The author has missed a significant industrial use of silver. Unfortunately, it is war that uses of 100s of millions of ounces. One Tomahawk missile uses over 500 ounces which, of course, is non-reclaimable. It is estimated that the 2 Gulf Wars used up a years' supply. Considering that, unlike gold, there are no major hoards of silver in reserve, the next major war could utilize all existing silver stocks.

  • More Reasons To Believe In Gold [View article]
    The fiat Ponzi will implode before 2020, if not much sooner. When it does, there will have to be a new reserve currency backed, at least in part, by gold. The reason is obvious. Only gold is considered as real money by a vast majority of the global population, and its rarity has assured acceptance for over 5000 years. It's all about confidence and trust. No other phoney fiat construct will suffice as money for commerce. Just look as the Euro for the most recent example. When the currency reset occurs, gold will be valued in the stratosphere. I have patience and can wait.

  • Mike Swanson: Tables To Turn In 2015 For Stocks And Commodities [View article]
    The recent announcement of a negative rate of the Swiss 10 yr should make you re-examine your thesis. BTW, how much longer can major corporations massage their accounting to look positive? First Q results should be interesting.

  • Friday's Jobs Report Disaster Is Splendid News For Gold [View article]
    Even the normally cognitively dissonant have connected the dots on the "recovery" that isn't and the absurdity of 5.5% unemployment from the government propagandists. All things considered, I see at least a 30% devaluation of the USD later this year with a corresponding increase in the price of gold. The Chinese AIIB is definitely a game changer for the ultimate death of the petro dollar and with it, the implosion of what's left of the US economy.

  • The Case For A Gold Rally Grows In Strength [View article]
    "forget the manipulation theories"

    Not theories anymore. GATA has well established the facts of manipulation and suppression. But it doesn't really matter if you are a trader; as an investor, though, there is hope that the criminal conspiracy will end at some point. Physical holders, as Doug points out, will not dishoard their insurance; they can connect the dots on the impending death of the current fiat Ponzi. The key will be silver. Ted Butler has noted that JPM probably has over $300 million ounces of silver in its proprietary account. So what does the most criminal bank in the cabal know that we don't? Just a thought to ponder.

  • A Note On Employment [View article]
    The author appears to base his analysis on government produced numbers which, I believe, have no basis in reality. The stated job participation numbers are the worst in 4 decades, and exacerbated ever further by the increase of another 100 million in population and millions in uncounted illegals. The non-employment or under-employment of college grads over the past 5 years is simply astounding. The agenda of destroying this country is well on its way, but the author (and many others that post economic analysis) still continue to drink the Koolaid.

  • Don't Buy Gold Now, Wait Until It's Under $1,000 [View article]
    But compared to your demand deposits and savings at a bank, at least gold has no counter party risk. Read the fine print on banking documents; you are not in first place if the bank goes under, and FDIC has less than 1% of the monies required to make depositors whole. Then there's NIRP in Euroland; don't be surprised if it comes to the US. And, in case you are unaware, banks are now required to report to the authorities any large withdrawals you may make. The Fourth Reich is alive and well. My view is that gold (and silver) are insurance against any extreme volatile happenings; the likelihood of which is now exceptionally high.

  • Big Gold Futures Buying To Fuel Silver's Emerging Upleg [View article]
    You mean the current climate that has the silver price at least 20% below all-in production cost. How many assets can you buy right now at a steep discount that have no counterparty risk? And further, name me another substance like silver that is as strategically important to global industry. Our highly tech world would cease to exist without it.

  • Lean Gold Vs. Fat Dollar - Guess Which Wins The Geopolitical Capital Flight Fight [View article]
    The global community is fast losing any fascination for the USD, and while it may be a temporary safe haven, its true value will be exposed upon the great currency reset. I envision at least a 30% devaluation within the next year. As for gold, the only true intrinsic currency, it is interesting to note that analysts (disingenuously perhaps) fail to point out that the vast majority of the world's population prefer it over manufactured and contrived fiat, which is why it will have to play a significant role in any reset. It's all about confidence and trust.

    Gold is NOT a commodity; it is, historically, the purest form of money.

  • Gold Holds Trump Card Vs. Dollar [View article]
    "with rising interest rates"

    I am sure that there is a parallel universe where interest rates may rise, but the one we live in is fast progressing into a NIRP environment on a global basis.
