  • 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's Price Should Be Consistent With The Prices Of Other Things [View article]
    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.

  • Could Gold Possibly Rise With Interest Rates? [View article]
    The assumption that the FED will raise rates flies in the face of one of the more obvious results of such action; the derivative daisy chain will implode. The USD is at its apogee already; look out below. The result for gold: you won't be able to find any, at any price close to the current one.

  • Will Gold Prices Bounce Back? [View article]
    As a trader, the author may be correct; on the other hand, an investor should be buying hand over fist. The new world currency will arrive within 5 years and it will have to be at least partially backed by gold; it's the only asset that would have universal acceptance.

  • The 'Hidden' U.S. Recession [View article]
    If you factor in true inflation (somewhere between 3-5%), the always adjusted GDP has been negative for the better part of the past three years. Name me a Quarter where the "adjusted" GDP was greater than 3%. I'm waiting, waiting.........

  • Investors Got It Wrong: The Latest Jobs Report And Rising Interest Rates Are Reasons To Own Gold [View article]
    In a normal free market world, raising rates a little wouldn't have much of an effect, although the sovereign bonds of all of the G20 would head south and might, temporarily, strengthen the USD. But the elephant in the room is the derivatives market which would implode at even a 50 basis point jump in rates. This is why the FED is in a corner; all talking of raising rates is smoke and mirrors. There is no way out save a debt jubilee which, of course, would never happen given the elites insurmountable greed and their need for global totalitarian financial control. When examining the words of such sociopaths and psychopaths, your assumption should always be that they are lying, or at best disingenuous.

  • Scandal In Precious Metals: What Does It All Mean? [View article]
    Nowhere does the author mention the totally illegal position limits in the PMs held by JPM et al. which are effective "corners" on the PM markets. This is the true elephant in the room. There should already have been Congressional hearings at the least. Imagine if a critical agricultural commodity like wheat or corn had such a corner; it would be front page news and the participants would already be awaiting trial.

  • Silver Is A Long-Term Buy: Here's Why [View article]
    whether AEs or generic rounds/bars? I believe the answer is quite obvious. The value of your stash will ultimately depend on the scarcity that is coming in the next decade which will affect the industrial role of silver far more than its monetary use. Peak silver (mining), according to reputable geologists, occurred in the 1980s, and it is likely that silver production will start an inexorable decline next year, from the curtailment in exploration and drilling. Given that our tech world requires billions of ounces of the planet's most strategically important metal, the value of your stash will be ultimately realized at a refinery that will be interested only in the .999 and not anything else.

  • Year End Gold Reserves Plummet In 2014 Confirming A Drop In Future Production: Is There A Better Slam-Dunk Investment Than Gold? [View article]
    Hebba: if you are bullish on gold, what about silver? Considering that all gold mined still exists, while the majority of silver mined has been used up in industrial processes, or is being hoarded (never to see the free market except at far higher prices), silver is more of a "no brainer" than gold. It's interesting to note that the principal price suppressor is JPM, and you have to ask yourself why they have over 300 million ounces of silver in a proprietary account. Since this bank and others have effectively controlled the price of silver for decades, what do they know that we don't?

  • Zillow's Data Does Not Bode Well For Future Case-Shiller Releases [View article]
    Any housing recovery is an illusion; qualified buyers in the numbers needed no longer exist. The middle class is incrementally disappearing. The true U-16 unemployment rate is actually in excess of 20%; over 1/2 of working age people require government assistance of some kind, none of which could qualify for a standard mortgage. Too many of the presumed first time buyers (25-40 age bracket) are overburdened with student debt, and hard pressed to find a down payment. This group has no savings and no real future.

    Rather than investing in home builders, I would be shorting them with both hands.

  • Gold And Silver Mining Stocks - Stay Out [View article]
    "risk of government seizures"

    The ultimate fate of all inground mining resources in the US is in the hands of one man; POTUS. Read the NDAA. When the SHTF, the criminals in DC and their cronies will take control. Stocks of mining companies are paper, not physical. The shareholders of any of the ETFs or the miners will be like MFGlobal or Madoff victims. And if the President pulls an FDR type confiscation on any form of gold asset, all other mining nations (except Russia and China) will follow.

  • Gold Demand Fell In 2014 [View article]
    Koos has already provided solid evidence that the WGC (a propaganda arm of the bullion banksters (see the Board of Directors) has disingenuously ignored the bullion that leaves the Shanghai Gold Exchange on a daily basis. For this reason and the fact that it is well known that China processes gold dore (amount unknown) from global mines they control or have an interest in, the author's thesis is flawed.

  • Latest Deutsche Bank Research Shows Gold Has A Lot To Gain From A Shift In Financial Assets [View article]
    Coindog: you obviously are aware of the end game possibilities, but it might not be that far off. When it happens, you might not have time to prepare. I expect the USD to be devalued at least 30% and announced on a Friday dump. By the next Monday, there will be no gold available for less that $1600 (or more), if you can find it!
