  • Silver: A Hated Asset Might Become A Good Long-Term Buy [View article]
    It's amazing that there is so much wasted analysis on the possibility of the FED raising rates, given the real economic numbers that point to a continuing recession (depression?) in spite of the propaganda and disinformation being published by the USG. Rates should never be raised in an economic downturn; even the Krazy Keynesians would agree.

    Absent a rate increase the author's thesis on silver is meaningless. While it is true that the USD may strengthen for a period in comparison to other currencies, the fact remain that the US is the most indebted nation on the planet and the USD is rapidly losing its position as the world's reserve currency.

    Along with gold, silver is real money; it's true value will be realized a lot sooner than the author intimates.

  • Gold: Now That's A Dead Cat Bounce! What's Next? [View article]
    Glencore may be the next Lehman or LTCM. If it implodes, it will take a lot of counter party derivative holders with it. When that happens, gold will go much higher, not lower due to the fact that the global economy will be in even more of a crisis mode than it is today. I think the big boys already know this; GLD and COMEX are being raided on an almost daily basis.

  • Gold's Rally Will Be Short-Lived [View article]
    As a rebuttal to the author's thesis:

    l. Many solid analysts in the PM sector have convincingly disproved the WGC disinformation on gold demand.

    2. The FED has painted itself in a corner and cannot raise rates; more likely it will be a negative interest rate policy if they can pull off this con job on the American people.

    3. Unless and until the great currency reset, it will be QE forever, probably commencing Q1 of 2016.

    The time frame for a higher gold price, despite the omnipresent criminality of the price suppression activities of the FED/BIS, is narrowing. The fraud of the COMEX and LBMA has become readily apparent to too many.

  • Major September Buying By Russian And Chinese Central Banks Suggests Gold Market Still Has Long-Term Glitter [View article]
    Hebba: I don't understand why you continue to push any form of paper gold; especially GLD which, IMHO, has numerous problems:

    No truly independent audit
    No insurance policy from a major carrier
    Only the bullion banks can withdraw (unlike Sprott, et al)
    weasel language on settlement

    Many experts in the field believe that GLD is a Ponzi or a scam set up by the bankster community to siphon off real physical demand for gold.

  • Gold Is A Terrible Inflation Hedge: Looking At The Numbers [View article]
    The interest rate on a 3 month Treasury IS NOT higher than inflation. Rather than using the fraudulent USG CPI, it is better to look at something called the Chapman Index which measures inflation for a basket of goods and services used by American households. It finds that across 50 US metro areas, inflation averages close to 10% and has been so since 2009.

    Thus, the biggest argument against the author's thesis is that he readily swallows the government koolaid on published economic statistics.

    Further, one cannot examine the relationship of the gold price and inflation without acknowledging the now admitted price suppression over the past 4 decades. No one knows what today's true price should be, but it would be many times higher were it not for the criminal naked shorting in the futures markets to prop up the value of the USD.

  • Why Gold Gained Ground Wednesday And What We Need Next [View article]
    Check out the Chapman Index which calculates the cost of a basket of necessity items for most families in 50 major metro US areas. The average inflation looks to be about 10%. Which means that the GDP has been negative for some years. So much for the BS recovery.

  • Why Gold Gained Ground Wednesday And What We Need Next [View article]
    Regardless of whether or not the FED raises rates, the global economy will continue to implode, markets will crash and the USD will continue its continuous slide to worthlessness.

    The future looks bright for gold (and silver), especially given that it soon will be hard to buy any PM in quantity.

  • Does Money Supply Drive The Gold Price? [View article]
    The reality is that we are in stagflation; declining economy with an increase in costs for household necessities. According to the Chapman Index which calculates what should be the real CPI for US cities, we have averaged close to 10% inflation (compounded) over the past decade. We all have experienced this at the grocery store, with health care, etc. Keep in mind that the USG has a vested interest in keeping CPI artificially low in order to diminish automatic increases in entitlements.

    The massive QE infusions never made it to the general economy and the 99%, but they did help the banks and the 1%.

    Regardless, the argument about any correlation of money supply and gold is specious, considering the decades long purposeful suppression of the gold price.

  • Yet Another Reason To Buy Gold [View article]
    So many global players have wised up to the Ponzi of the USD and the fact that the US is probably the most indebted nation on the planet. The reserve currency status of the USD is hanging by a thread. Within 2 years, the USD will be toast, regardless of the neocon war mongering to distract the masses.

    Since the majority of the global population views gold as "real" money, a new world currency would have to be at least partially backed by gold to ensure some semblance of order in world trade. At that point there will be many more zeroes in the gold price.

  • Is Gold A Safe Haven? [View article]
    The USD is slowly, but inexorably losing its status as the global reserve currency. When the final nail is driven, we will have reached the ultimate in financial stress that the author refers to as the most preferable time to hold gold. But certainly not via an ETF. The 1% will have cleaned out all the ETFs and unallocated bullion vaults long before the 99% gets its chance.

  • Staggering August Chinese Gold Deliveries Out Of SGE [View article]
    Hmmm! One of the most prescient gold commentators trashed by the gubmint trolls/disinformation specialists. Who woulda thunk it?

  • Without Much Fanfare COMEX Available Gold Drops To Lowest Levels On Record [View article]

    "selling some of our gold in Fort Knox"

    On the USTreasury balance sheet, the gold the US presumably owns is labelled "deep storage". Please note that Fort Knox is at ground level. Draw your own conclusions.

  • Revelations From An Investigation Into Silver Supply And Demand [View article]
    If you are unaware of the silver and gold price suppression by the USG (to prop up the USD) for the last 4 decades, you shouldn't be posting a comment on a PM article.

  • The Next Financial Crisis May Already Be Unfolding [View article]
    Gold has performed well in both deflation and inflation periods, contrary to your statement. Ask yourself why you would not want, in a deflationary period, the only "true' money to take advantage of falling prices. Gold was true money long before fiat was invented and will continue to be so long after fiat is gone.

    BTW, We are currently in severe stagflation, soon to be hyperinflation when QE 4, 5, and 6 are unveiled.

  • Unexpected Chance For Gold Rally? [View article]
    The great dumping of the USD has begun by the Chinese, Japan soon to follow. The only buyer will be the FED. Sometime soon, the FED balance sheet and subsequent QE will create the inflation that the author dismisses. Look for hourly increases in the gold price of $100 (or more) during trading hours when this happens.
