  • It's Time To Buy Gold [View article]
    maybe it doesn't make sense and trying to fit a pattern may get some results but not for the right reason which means next time it might not work...

  • Funds cut gold bull bets [View news story]
    I don't remember 1350 that must have been an intra day move?! For such strong selling it is positive that gold isn't even lower. What happens when people stop following COMEX? Don't worry that's years away but Shanghai silver and to a lesser extent gold are making serious progress in this respect.

  • The Failure Of Expansionary Monetary Policies [View article]
    When debt leads to malinvestment then deflation is what the doctor order to clear the systemic rot. The FED has forced traditional savers to bailout the banks by manipulating the interest and credit markets well below free market rates. That's a large negative feat. Yet a politically captured Washington naturally defers to what Wall St aka Goldman Sachs thinks is best. Drop the Democrat / Republican BS that's all show, nothing more. It's more about haves and have nots. The bank CEOs fit squarely with haves.

  • 8 Reasons Why A New Global Financial Crisis Could Be On The Way [View article]
    When the spoils of increased efficiency go to the rich who have made companies more efficiency by engaging in labor or regulatory arbitrage, is the world really better? (even if one's measure of global GDP measure says so -- these aren't perfect indicators.)

    Competitiveness theory in economics assumes some resources are inflexible but in today's world these assumptions are wrong when even massive factories or natural gas can easily be moved around the world. Today it's a push for absolute advantage, no longer comparative advantage!

  • Peabody "clean coal" ad ruled misleading by U.K. regulator [View news story]
    @K.Rat: the problem is CO2 travels around the world. Other pollutants are more local and they can be scrubbed in coal burning to significantly reduce most of the bad stuff and in the US this is done and that's why US air is better than 40 years ago, not because US stopped using coal.

  • Don't Buy This Dip: The Fed Is Not Your Friend [View article]
    @Michael: I think you might have meant the world is complex, not paradoxical. Macro doesn't deal with potential failure of complex systems. The economics assumes the world lives near a stable equilibrium. Sorry Macro Investor but this only works sometimes sort of like a broken clock being right twice a day.

  • Peabody "clean coal" ad ruled misleading by U.K. regulator [View news story]
    Since when was CO2 dirty? We know that people breathe out CO2, right? Power seeking regulators (or activists) don't generally care about anyone's well-being beyond their own. (This goes for BTU too but since they are seen as baddies, maybe people should recognize this CO2 pollution claim as the PROPOGANDA it is.)

  • Update: Asanko Gold Commences Construction Of Phase 1 Of Its Asanko Mine In Ghana [View article]
    Hard to see the PMI gold acquisition weakness returning that was a gift at $1.60 but low 2.10's certainly possible. It is interesting they are being careful about contractors and Ebola -- that maybe a real risk?!

  • Freegold: Why Gold Is Not Money [View article]
    @author: Bretton Woods failed because the price of gold was too low. And that was in part because LBJ guns and butter dollar devaluation.

    Ultimately gold is not money legally because that's better for the people it power. Yes, I lean toward the Austrian view. I don't think you've made a strong case that gold isn't money.

    I think what you meant to say is GOLD ISN'T LEGAL TENDER.

    Credit has counterparty risk. Credit isn't money. How to know? When TSHTF, credit will collapse, gold will still be there. Money if it represents a substitute for barter should not evaporate.

  • FOMC minutes: Labor market improvement can't be ignored [View news story]
    This doesn't indicate much change at all. Still dissent for quicker tightening for Plosser otherwise steady as she goes as everything is under control. Is this the voyage of the Titantic? It sure feels like it to me? The large ice berg is mostly underwater (aka out of sight). But this market will sink at some point. FOMC hubris guarantees it.

  • Update: Pretium Drill Results [View article]
    It's important because it's a piece of the puzzle but the situation will be remedy or my belief that "safe" jurisdictions will no longer be "safe." Of course, BC wasn't that safe but compared to Africa the perception is it is safer. Therein lies a price risk to any investment.

    Not that big of a deal unless struggling Canadian economy is ready to belly up killing the only thing they got going: resource extraction. May delay project slightly but should be part of mine permit review.
