  • Fiat Money Versus Gold: Is It Showdown Time?  [View article]
    The Asians have outperformed Americans over the past 40 years in math and science, thanks to Progressive influence over American education. The various man-in-the street interviews are quite illuminating about the deficiencies of US education vis a vis the rest of the world. The PM naysayers would have us believe that the Asian gold bugs, contrary to the above, are intellectually deficient in understanding the role that PMs have in economic society; i.e. as a safe haven and insurance policy against financial disaster which, unfortunately, is upon us now, not just here in the US, but globally. Hmmm, I wonder which group will have the last laugh?

  • Gold Vs. Silver During Bull Markets  [View article]
    Within 5 years, and especially due to it's industrial demand, there will be a shortage of silver, but not one for gold. While there are no known multi $billion hoards of silver existing, there are many gold vaults in private and public hands containing 1000s of tonnes of gold. When the planet runs out of silver, it will not run out of the strategically critical industrial uses of silver in everyday life. For this reason, within 20 years, we could see a GSR of 1:1.

  • Gold Weekly: Should You Join The Party?  [View article]
    Although there is a question whether or not the FED can legally go NIRP, if they find a way, then all hell will break loose in the PM markets. Then will no longer be the irrational statements from the bullion bashers that the only assets to own are income producing, even as the billions of Asians buy buy buy for wealth preservation in anticipation of a financial SHTF moment (which is definitely on the horizon).

  • Empty Consumers  [View article]
    The 99% US households are tapped out. Wages stagnant or declining; prices for necessities like food, shelter rising at between 7-10%(compounded) per year for the better part of the last decade. Decreasing fuel costs are more than offset by the dramatic increases on deductibles and overall costs of health insurance. Further, Obamacare has cut the standard work week from 40 to 30 hours for too many. The re-emergence of liar's loans in housing and autos indicates that debt enslavement will become the rule, not the exception and will only further the cause and agenda of totalitarian globalism.

  • Top Silver Mining CEO: Don't Laugh, We Could See $100+ Silver  [View article]
    Too many of the PM naysayers are disingenuous, delusional or just plain ignorant. We are facing, in the next decade, as industry expects are aware, consistent (or increasing) demand and dramatically falling supply. Thus, those that can connect dots, know that there will be an increase in price and it is likely to be dramatic. Objectively, try to envision any other two comparable commodities or assets that have price ratios of 80:1 where the production ratio is only 10:1. Either the higher priced asset is way overvalued or the lower priced asset is dirt cheap in comparison. Gold is most definitely not overvalued because the 8 month backwardation in futures prices indicate a physical scarcity that is unprecedented. Ergo: silver is the buy of a lifetime.

  • Gold: No Silver Lining  [View article]
    Silver, historically, has been a bigger "canary" than gold. The banksters know this and will let gold run a little, but will keep the lid on silver (under $15) until they cannot anymore.

    Probably because SLV, like GLD, is just another fractional reserve Ponzi scheme.

  • U.S. Mint Bullion-Coin Sales Reveal Strong American Investment Demand For Physical Gold And Silver  [View article]
    The US imported over 800 metric tonnes of silver in 2015, so obviously, domestic production is insufficient to meet demand for all industrial and monetary uses. How much of this imported silver was used in coin manufacture is unknown, but certainly any exponential increase in coin demand will face shortages, as we have already seen with US Mint production schedules and allocations to dealers.

    Overall, and for the next decade, the lack of exploration monies and the shutdowns and mothballing of silver, copper, lead and zinc mines (the major sources of silver production) are going to severely impact the availability of silver for any purpose, unless the price rises dramatically.

    Subtle propaganda with the pic of the BOE gold vault showing it full; unfortunately the picture was taken in the 90's. Shame!

  • It's Time To Buy Uneconomic Gold Companies  [View article]
    The risk/reward ratio in mining is currently at a very high level. I agree with the author that most projects should be mothballed, but that will never happen; bankruptcy or a last ditch M&A will most likely occur with certain entities picking up assets at pennies on the dollar.

    At some point over the next few years,the decline in production together with the enormous and non-stop Asian demand will break the price stranglehold of the banksters. While a delivery default would accelerate this process, that too will not happen. More likely would be the Chinese setting a true free market price which would be many times higher than the current one. They could do this because true audits would show that the West is totally naked. But keep in mind that the elites have started World Wars over much less disruption of financial market control.

    "old silver will come out of the woodwork"

    To a significant extent, this has already occurred; there is little left. Ask your local coin dealer or pawn shop and you will discover that product they now deliver to a local refiner is less than 10% of what it used to be just a few short years ago.

  • Gold Has Passed The Lows  [View article]
    Michael: your first sentence is undoubtedly true; the rest, not so much. If you sincerely believe that the stock market will reach new highs, a recession is improbable, and the economy is actually improving, then you may be one of the most cognitively dissonant commenters on S/A. All of the transportation indices are falling off a cliff; and retail sales, industrial production, and housing construction/sales are all rolling over. Labor and employment numbers are proving to be manipulated BS, with significantly more layoffs coming across all sectors due to the oil crisis.

  • Silver Q1 2016: A Recovery On The Horizon  [View article]
    The critical point you miss is the Law of Supply and Demand. We already are aware of the current lack of billion ounce hoards available and major discoveries over the past decade. Global silver production going forward is expected to decline year over year for at least a decade given the dramatic curtailing of exploration and drilling. Meanwhile both industrial and investment demand are either stable or keep rising year over year while scrap availability has fallen off a cliff.

    Even though I am aware of the decades long PM price suppression schemes through patently illegal position limits and naked shorting, they cannot last forever. Some day, and I believe sooner than later, actual fundamentals will matter.

  • Precious Metals Fourth Quarter Review And The Outlook For 2016  [View article]
    Funny how the author never acknowledges the fact that current fundamentals in the PM sector such as increasing geopolitical crises, and continual strong demand while supply is decreasing, has totally been offset by the purposeful price suppression schemes of the FED and its bankster cronies through illegal naked shorting during weak trading hours.

    If we didn't know this was occurring, we could almost believe his analysis.
