07.05.22- Zimbabwe to introduce gold coins as local currency tumbles
Nyasha Chingono

HARARE, July 5 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's central bank said it would start selling gold coins this month as a store of value to tame runaway inflation, which has considerably weakened the local currency.

The central bank governor John Mangudya said in a statement on Monday that the coins will be available for sale from July 25 in local currency, U.S. dollars and other foreign currencies at a price based on the prevailing international price of gold and the cost of production. Read More

07.04.22- This Implosion Will Be Fast...
Hold On To Your Seats

Egon Von Greyerz

The massive money creation in the 2000s has led to a debt and asset bubble, which is about to burst.

Investors will be shocked by the speed of the decline and won’t react before it is too late.

The massive money creation by central and commercial banks in this century has resulted in a growth of global assets from $450 trillion in 2000 to $1,540 trillion in 2020. Read More

07.02.22- Contra Ben Bernanke, the Gold Standard Promotes Economic Stability
Frank Shostak

Currently the world is on a fiat money standard—a government-issued currency that is not backed by a commodity such as gold. The fiat standard is the primary cause behind the present economic instability, and is tempted to suggest that a gold standard would reduce instability. The majority of experts however, oppose this idea on the ground that the gold standard is in fact a factor of instability. Read More

07.01.22- G-7 Sanctions On Russian Gold
Could Backfire

Clint Siegner

Russia is the world’s second largest producer of gold.

When the London Bullion Market Association delisted Russian gold refiners in March, many expected the move would push gold prices higher. Instead, the gold price has fallen roughly $100/oz.

Over the weekend, leaders of the G-7 nations announced formal sanctions on the import of gold from Russia. That move is expected to be largely symbolic because the LBMA and Western refiners, many of which are located in Switzerland, volunteered to ban imports shortly after the war began. Read More

06.30.22- Setting the Record Straight: On Gold & Silver Manipulation
Steve St Angelo

With the continued focus on precious metals manipulation, I decided it was a good idea to provide my CONNECT THE DOT analysis on this subject matter.  While most analysts and investors in the precious metals community focus a lot of their efforts on the “COMEX” and “Manipulation,” I believe we have much bigger problems ahead that deserve our attention.

However, even if people were open to my analysis, most would continue to believe in precious metals manipulation.  I still receive a lot of emails, questions, and social media replies suggesting, “STEVE… you just don’t get it… LOL.”  Believe me you; I GET IT.  Read More

06.29.22- What’s Happening In Russia Proves Gold Is King
Peter Reagan

This week, Your News to Know rounds up the latest top stories involving gold and the overall economy. Stories include: Gold is bypassing sanctions, the value of holding gold right now, and Uganda’s suspect gold discovery.

You can’t sanction gold, whether you like it or not

There’s plenty to be said about the sanctions being imposed on Russia by the West. On one hand, it’s an attempt to curb an obviously catastrophic military conflict. On the other, the West itself has begun to suffer the effects of these sanctions due to Europe’s, but also the world’s reliance on Russian oil. Read More

06.27.22- Gold Sector Counting Down to Launch
David Brady

Given that next to nothing has happened in Gold or Silver in the past several weeks, I am going to provide quick updates on the DXY, real and nominal bond yields, and the S&P. These markets are many, many times bigger than the precious metals markets and to varying degrees have a great deal of influence on the prospects for Gold and Silver. Read More

06.25.22- The New OCC Report
Ted Butler

On Tuesday, the new Quarterly Derivatives Report from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency was released, showing the over-the-counter derivatives positions for US banks as of March 31, 2022. This report excludes listed or exchange-traded derivatives contracts, such as COMEX futures and options contracts and also excludes OTC derivatives contracts held by non-US banks. Read More

06.24.22- Gold and Economic Freedom
Alan Greenspan

An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense-perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez-faire -- that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other.

In order to understand the source of their antagonism, it is necessary first to understand the specific role of gold in a free society. Read More

06.23.22- Stocks Have Not Bottomed,
A Crash Is Coming

Bob Moriarty

Since the end of April financial markets have become increasingly volatile, seemingly no sector or asset class has been spared. Last week, I had the opportunity to speak with Bob Moriarty about where we are at today in the gold sector, and how he see things playing out across markets in the 2nd half of 2022. As usual, Bob and I don’t see eye to eye on everything, however, that is also what makes these conversations interesting and worthwhile. 

We also discussed several individual junior mining companies and the sentiment cycles in financial markets, including junior mining. Without further ado, Energy & Gold’s June 2022 conversation with 321gold founder and noted financial author Bob Moriarty… Read More

06.21.22- Raging Inflation, A Collapsing Economy/Stock Market And Gold In Uganda
Dave Kranzler

The idea that Vladimir Putin is responsible for the raging price inflation in the U.S. – as “Joe Biden” first claimed in a speech a couple of months ago, calling it “Putinflation” – is patently absurd. The Fed, along with several of the largest Central Banks around the world are directly and indirectly the cause of price inflation. Supply chain disruptions and the U.S./EU sanctions on Russia are secondary exogenous variables that have exacerbated the problem created by bankers. Read More

06.20.22- Topping Dollar Is Gold-Bullish
Adam Hamilton

The US dollar has skyrocketed in a monster rally this year, fueled by the Fed’s extreme hawkish pivot.  Panicking over raging inflation, top Fed officials are aggressively hiking rates and starting to reverse years of epic monetary excesses.  But resulting overcrowded dollar buying has left it extraordinarily overbought at precarious heights.  As this lofty currency inevitably mean reverts lower, big gold-futures buying will be unleashed.

The world’s reserve currencies led by the US dollar are so massive that they usually move glacially.  But 2022’s wild dollar action has shattered those norms, as evident in its leading benchmark US Dollar Index.  Birthed way back in 1973, this USDX is now dominated by the euro at a whopping 57.6% of its weighting.

06.18.22- Will Gold Save Souls During the Inflationary Apocalypse?
Arkadiusz Sieron, PhD

While inflation continues to wreak havoc, gold is reluctant to respond. Will it finally change and the price of the yellow metal rise?

The Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse

The end is nigh! There should be no doubt about it now, as more horsemen of the Apocalypse are coming (see the painting below). The first was Pestilence. Two years ago, the COVID-19 pandemic plunged the world into a Great Lockdown and the deepest recession since the Great Depression. Read More

06.17.22- Inflation Goes from Bad to Worse… to Even Worse Than Reported
Stefan Gleason

Friday’s Consumer Price Index Report sent shockwaves through financial markets. The 8.6% annual reading was yet another new multi-decade high – dealing a body blow to analysts who believed inflation pressures had peaked.

Investors now fear the Federal Reserve will have to undertake more aggressive tightening actions. Both bonds and stocks tumbled into the close of trading last week. Read More

06.16.22- 3 Ways Historic Inflation Has Changed Everything
Peter Reagan

It’s hard to deny that inflation is the most pressing economic issue for most of us these days, whether we’re saving for retirement or just filling up our tanks at the gas station. Ask anybody what’s on their minds, and you’ll get an earful.

It doesn’t matter who you ask, liberals or conservatives. It doesn’t matter how you ask, according to a recent FiveThirtyEight/Ipsos poll. “What bothers you the most?” “What’s keeping you up nights worrying?” You’ll get the same answer: Read More

06.15.22- And Now, for Something Entirely Different: Is the Second Amendment Absolute?
Laurence M. Vance

In a recent speech where he said that Congress should reinstate the assault weapons ban, raise the minimum purchase age for firearms, limit magazine capacities, and pass red flag gun laws, President Biden made the statement that “the Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute.” This echoes what he had previously said after the mass shooting at a Texas elementary school: “The Second Amendment is not absolute. When it was passed you couldn’t own a cannon, you couldn’t own certain kinds of weapons. There’s just always been limitations.” Read More

06.14.22- Here’s Why Ignoring Spot Prices Might Be a Good Idea
Phillip Patrick

This weekend, I was rereading one of the greatest books on investment ever written: The Intelligent Investor, by Benjamin Graham. This time, one particular passage struck me more forcefully than ever before.

Graham sets up this analogy by saying you’ve purchased a $1,000 share of a private business. You’re now the owner of that asset. In a typical “private business” arrangement like this, there’s no public market for your asset (think Shark Tank). There’s no notion of your investment’s current value. Read More

06.11.22- Protection From a Currency Collapse
Alasdair Macleod

While markets seem becalmed, financial conditions are rapidly deteriorating. Last week Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase gave the clearest of signals that bank credit is beginning to contract. Russia has consolidated its rouble, which has now become the strongest currency by far. The Fed announced the previous week that its balance sheet is in negative equity. And there’s mounting evidence that we have a nascent crack-up boom. Read More

Experts from the World Bank finally admitted that the risk of stagflation is getting bigger and more real. For gold, however, that’s pretty good news.

06.09.22- The Real Reason Why Gold Has Stumbled
Jim Rickards

The world has changed radically in recent years. We’ve had the worst pandemic since 1918, and the third worst in world history. We’ve had a global supply chain breakdown. Inflation is the worst since the early 1980s. Europe is experiencing its worst war since the end of World War II.

That kinetic war in Ukraine is accompanied by a financial and economic war between the U.S., the U.K., the EU and Russia that involves extreme financial sanctions, including seizing the central bank reserves of the world’s 11th-largest economy. That financial war and accompanying sanctions have disrupted supply chains on top of the disruptions already present. Read More

06.08.22- Fatal Macro Warnings: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat
Matthew Piepenburg

As one who loves metaphor, I can’t help but notice the recent and varying range of metaphorical macro warnings.

JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon, for example, is now predicting a “market hurricane” ahead, which Peter Schiff has recently upgraded to a “Category 5.”

Meanwhile, the always blunt Michael Burry has compared the trajectory of our market economy and macro warnings to “watching a plane crash.” Read More

06.07.22- Forget About the Gold Standard, Let’s Talk About the Copper Standard
Dr. Ron Paul

Way back in 1982, two interesting things happened.

The first was the publication of the minority report fellow Gold Commission member Lewis Lehrman and I co-wrote as The Case for Gold. (I’m currently working with Birch Gold Group to release a new edition of this book in the near future.) Now, I understand that might not be as interesting to everyone as it was to sound-money advocates like myself. Read More

06.06.22- This Comprehensive Research on the Gold/Silver Ratio Gives Us a Big Fat Hint About What’s Ahead
Jeff Clark

I know silver investors are discouraged. The price action doesn’t reflect what we think it should, particularly when inflation’s been spiking.

There are valid reasons for the lag in price—a soaring US dollar, a perceived drop in industrial demand from recession or stagflation fears, a crashing stock market forcing investors to liquidate other holdings—but those don’t make us feel any better. Read More

06.04.22- When Thoughts Turn To Gold
Lawrence W. Reed

Architect of a school of economic thought regarded by many as just a notch above quackery, John Maynard Keynes of Britain once called the gold standard a “barbarous relic.” An honest and time-honored medium of exchange such as gold (or paper money redeemable in gold) stood in the way of Keynes’ snooty preference for lots of government spending and easy money.

Is Gold Hobson's Choice?
Egon von Greyerz

Thomas Hobson was the owner of a livery stable in Cambridge in the 16th century. When travellers came to change their horse, they had to take the horse standing nearest the door, or they would not get a horse. Although there were 40 horses in the stable, the traveller did not have a choice. So Hobson’s Choice means the choice of one.

This article will discuss if investors in coming years really have more than the Hobson’s choice of one. Read More

Peter Reagan

This week, Your News to Know rounds up the latest top stories involving gold and the overall economy. Stories include: A history lesson about inflation, silver short and long-term forecasts, and gold isn’t budging from its role as a portfolio stabilizer.

Gold Was the Number One Asset of the 1970s

For as much as we struggle to compare present day to any point in U.S. history, the 1970s to early 1980s are an almost eerily accurate parallel. People on the street didn’t have a smartphone in their hands, and mail took a bit longer to arrive. But the economic conditions are here. Read More
