  • LBMA Data Points To Gold And Silver Default (Video) [View article]
    In truth, defaults have already occurred, if the numerous lawsuits in Switzerland are any indication. It appears that investors who thought they had fully allocated gold, were settled for cash instead; but nothing but crickets from the financial media. The only press coverage I know about is when a bullion bank in the Netherlands in 2012 refused physical gold to fully allocated investors and settled for cash instead.

  • The Media Is Dead Wrong About Oil Supply And Demand [View article]

    Strongly agree with your statements. That the author thinks that the global economy is "far more healthy" is supreme cognitive dissonance; NIRP in Europe, the Chinese slowdown, the Japanese implosion, and the reality of USG numbers that are all phoney, the lowest print on the BDI, and the numerous economic and militaristic black swans circling (think Syraq, Ukraine, Greece and the other PIIGS; not to mention France and Italy), all indicate that the global economy is close to flatlining.

  • Gold Price: Caution Ahead [View article]
    Wholeheartedly agree. But the most bothersome part of this article is the hint of purposeful propaganda and disinformation that is belied by certain facts. The sanctions have hurt Russia's European trade partners to a considerable extent; they are pushing back against Obama. There is NO concerted agreement for more sanctions. In fact, both France and Italy, among others have stated that they want previous sanctions removed. There has been no independent confirmation of any Russian missile attack. There has been, however, documented proof of US soldiers/mercenaries/w... being utilized by the Kiev regime.

  • Is Marc Faber Right On A 30% Rally For Gold? [View article]
    The reason that gold is not already $2000+ is the ongoing illegal price suppression schemes by the FED, BIS and the bullion banks in order to retain and support ongoing confidence in the US dollar in the midst of massive money printing. I am surprised that you are not aware of this. Meanwhile, global demand for gold has emptied Western vaults, and the miners are trying to operate with a price that is at least 30% below production cost. In normal, non-manipulated markets, the law of supply and demand would rule; unfortunately, no economic rule can be counted on in these times of the greatest monetary Ponzi scheme in history.

  • Can Gold Miners Outperform Gold? [View article]
    Beg to differ: gold has done well in deflationary times; after all it IS money, not a commodity.You have to ask yourself how long will the miners remain valuable given the gold price 30% below all-in production cost?

  • Challenging The Mainstream Propaganda [View article]
    "who knows when that will be?"

    The most logical point in time will be public knowledge of a major "failure to deliver" which by the way, has already actually occurred with the German gold repatriation fiasco, and the numerous lawsuits in the Netherlands and in Switzerland on the claims of failure to deliver fully allocated gold and settling for cash instead. As the author notes, another would be the announcement by China's central bank that it owns a minimum of 6000 tons (far too low in my opinion). This would cause an immediate call worldwide for an audit of central bank gold. Sort of like "China has shown us theirs, now show us ours". Since there has been, for decades, enormous pushbacks for any audits of Western gold, the psychos in charge would start WWIII before any vault would open.

  • Prospects For Silver In 2015 [View article]
    "apart from some juniors going bust"

    While the author acknowledges this fact, he is certainly cognitively dissonant with regard to the current silver price being at least 30% below the true cost of production. What part of supply and demand fundamentals didn't he learn in Econ 101?

  • Gold Ends 2014 On Losing Note [View article]
    Too many swallow the propaganda that the FED will raise rates without realizing that the US will not be able to pay for even a nominal 4% increase in service on the national debt. Get used to ZIRP forever, folks; the FED has painted itself into a corner with no exit strategy.

  • New Gold Discoveries Plunge, Peak Gold In 2015 Predicted [View article]
    Although the author's analysis is excellent, he is remiss in not noting that ore grades mined have decreased in almost every year since the 1980's, which most geologists feel was the period that "peak" gold was reached.

  • What The Overall Commodities Market And Metals Prices Have In Common [View article]
    The percentages is the article are wrong; they should be:

    10% supply and demand factors

    90% interventions using market algos to "game" pricing for illegal profits

  • It Seems Like Hedge Funds Are Jumping Into The Gold Market [View article]
    It would be considerably bullish if the players who are allowed to illegally naked short the PM sector with totally inadequate backing and to hold outlandish position limits, contrary to established regulations, exited the scene. If major financial players did the same with any other commodity, they would be brought up on charges and be interrogated by the US Congress. No longer would we have non-profit seeking dumps of futures contracts equal to 1/2 annual production in a span of 30 minutes, after hours, and at illiquid times. The decades long price suppression would cease and true price discovery would begin.

  • 2014 Climate Change Deals Point To Bright Long-Term Future For Silver [View article]
    A few decades from now, IMO, the most important use of silver will be in the purification of water, the most valuable resource on the planet, certainly not solar panel manufacturing. The problem, however, with silver, is that it is disappearing from the planet at an alarming rate, and easily found and mined silver will not be available within a decade (USGS), unless the price rises dramatically to account for the increased exploration costs and the geometrically declining ore grades being found.

  • Gold Capitulation Moment Appears Imminent - See Bottoming Within Days Thereafter [View article]
    The psychos in leadership positions in the West are leading the planet towards WWIII; the propaganda of late has been overwhelming. I don't think many noticed, but the US Congress has effectively declared war on Russia, voted both to the arming of terrorist factions in the MidEast to topple the Syrian regime, and to the supplying of advanced weaponry to Ukraine. Aside from global economic issues which, btw, are reaching critical mass, these provocative war mongering actions should be the principal reason to acquire some PMs in one's portfolio. 2015 should be interesting year for PMs.

  • Signs That Gold May Be Headed Higher... Finally [View article]
    @Invictus: I would agree with you were it not for the rapidly accumulating body of evidence that gold (and silver) prices have been suppressed by the bullion banks for decades in order to maintain USD hegemony. This fact is why the price of gold is not already in the $2000-$5000 area, especially given the inexorable march to WWIII, and the pending global economic implosion.

  • Is This The Reason European Central Banks Repatriating Their Gold? [View article]
    The Netherlands has the chief investigating body of the MH17 crash. There is total secrecy as to their findings, which will never be released. There are many who question the accusations against Russia, especially since absolute proof exists in the form of satellite images that the US and NATO have in their possession, and the confiscated ATC conversations with the pilot of the plane which, again, will never be released. If Russia was guilty the suppressed data would have been released in a NY minute. So the conjecture is that the Netherlands effectively blackmailed the US to get their gold back. The US State Department, Nato and the Pentagon are so pathetically (and pathologically) trying to ruin Russia/Putin, that they will do anything to hide the true facts of the shoot down.
