01.19.18- Silver As A Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar
Jim Willie

The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass website, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in 2000, the precious metals growth curve has been evident. Ever since the subprime bond disaster in 2007, followed by the Lehman strangulation in 2008, the precious metals growth curve has continued. It is suppressed like holding back a team of six stagecoach Clydesdale horses by simple leather straps held by mere men with computers on their backs. Read More

01.18.18- What Do Dow 26,000
And Silver Have In Common?

Marshall Swing

“What they want you to do, and what they are going to force you to do (with the 2018 Global Economic Crash),  is put your full faith, future, and finances into…”

As we went over DOW $26,000 today there was a little raid in silver and not so much so in gold…

But is this the raid I referred to in earlier, recent posts?

Well, it is NOT a significant break to the Line of Lateral Movement.

Of great note, in gold Friday, there was a HUGE Commercial Gold accumulation of Longs, after what was structured to appear as a short raid in both gold and silver. Read More

01.17.18- Silver: Once and Future Money
Jim Rickards

The Roman Republic and the later Roman Empire had gold coins called the aureus and solidus, but they also minted a popular silver coin called the denarius. One denarius was the daily wage for unskilled labor and Roman soldiers.

Of course, in the late Empire, the aureus, solidus and denarius were all debased by mixing the gold and silver with base metals. The decline of the Roman Empire went hand in hand with the decline of sound money. Read More

01.16.18- The 2018 Stock Market Bubble
vs. Gold & Silver

Steve St Angelo

The U.S. Stock Market is reaching its biggest bubble in history.  When the price of the Dow Jones Index only moves in one direction… UP, it is setting up for one heck of a crash.  While market corrections aren’t fun for investors’ portfolios, they are NECESSARY.  However, it seems that corrections are no longer allowed to take place because if they did, then the tremendous leverage in the market might turn a normal correction into panic selling and a meltdown on the exchanges.

So, we continue to see the Dow Jones Index hit new record highs, as it moved up 765 points since the beginning of the year.  Now, if w go back to 1981 when the Dow was trading about 800 points, it took five years to double itself by another 800 points.  However, the Dow Jones Index just added 765 points in less than two weeks.

01.15.18- The Last Great Silver Buy
Ted Butler

In the annals of silver in the modern age, there have been two well-known instances of very large investor accumulations of the metal. First came the purchase by the Hunt Brothers and their associates in early 1980, followed by the purchase by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, 17 years later. The Hunts were said to control around 100 million ounces of actual metal (plus another 100 million ounces in long paper futures contracts), while Berkshire held as many as 129 million ounces.

01.13.18- As Sisyphus Fails Gold Will Ascend
Egon von Greyerz

Welcome to 2018 – a year that will be the culmination of at least 105 years of mismanagement of the Western financial system by governments, central bankers and the elite.

2018 will be a year of major volatility in many markets. Stocks are now in a melt-up phase and before the major bear markets start in virtually all countries around the world, we are likely to see the final exhaustion moves which could be substantial. The year will also be marked by inflation increasing a lot faster than expected. This will include higher interest rates, much higher commodity prices, like food and oil as well as a falling dollar. And many base metals will strengthen. Read More

01.12.18- Gold & Blockchain
Kevin Vecmanis

Gold never changes - only the world changes around it.

I can’t remember where I heard this quote, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately.  Gold, as an asset class, has one of the richest histories of all the earthly assets ever to have value bestowed upon them by man.  As far back as we go in history, for which there is archaeological record, we find evidence of an infatuation with gold. 

I was talking with a friend the other day about VanAurum, artificial intelligence, and blockchain. He asked, “Why are you building an artificial intelligence for gold?  Isn’t it dead?  Why don’t you just build an artificial intelligence for analyzing crypto?”  Read More

01.11.18- Silver Is a Metal to Watch in the New Year
Matt Badiali

The price of silver is up 10% in three weeks. That’s unusual for silver right now.

We only saw silver rise 10% within a month four times this year. The last time it rose 10% in three weeks was almost a year ago.

Like gold, 2016 was a strong year for silver. The price soared through the first half of the year. It ended down from its high, but still up 15% overall.

However, in 2017, the silver price only gained 4%. The price bounced up and down, never really breaking out. You can see what I mean from the chart below: Read More

01.10.18- First Majestic Silver CEO Keith Neumeyer Talks About The End Of The Silver Manipulation
Chris Marcus

During a recent interview, First Majestic Silver CEO Keith Neumeyer shared some interesting comments about the silver market. In particular he spoke about a development that could lead to the end of the ongoing manipulation.

For those not familiar, Neumeyer is one of, if not the only mining CEO to speak publicly about the manipulation that has left silver prices suppressed. His interviews always offer insightful commentary, and this latest one covered what could be a game changing event for the price of silver. Read More

01.09.18- Now in Effect: Virginia Law Takes First Step to Support Sound Money
Michael Maharrey

On Jan. 1, a Virginia law that repeals sales taxes from some purchases of gold and silver went into effect. It represents an important first step toward encouraging its regular use as currency and breaking the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

A bipartisan coalition of delegates and senators sponsored House Bill 1668 (HB1668) and Senate Bill 934 (SB934). The legislation exempts gold, silver, and platinum bullion or legal tender coins whose sales price exceeds $1,000 from state sales tax. Each piece of gold, silver, or platinum or legal tender coin need not exceed $1,000, provided that the sales price of one entire transaction of such pieces exceeds $1,000. With gold over $1,000 an ounce, a single bullion coin will exceed this threshold. Read More

01.08.18- David Morgan: The “Oh My” Moment Is Coming For Silver
Josh Sigurdson and John Sneisen

David says that right now the people are brainwashed, but the “oh my” moment is coming when the people will return to gold & silver…

Josh Sigurdson and John Sneisen talk with David Morgan of The Morgan Report, also known as the Silver Guru.

David Morgan is one of the most knowledgeable people on the planet when it comes to silver as well as gold. He’s written the book ‘The Silver Manifesto’ and does regular reporting on everything silver. Read More

01.06.18- Silver: The Key to Monetary Freedom
Rory Hall

We love to repeat that gold is money. We also love to point out that silver has been money longer than gold. Sometimes when when we look at situations or images long enough we begin to stop seeing certain aspects, characteristics or attributes that are right at the end of ones nose. This is what just happened with me. After looking at silver for so long it seems that I have overlooked the fact that silver has been money longer than gold and, therefore, has created more innovation, more wealth and helped more people rise up from bondage than gold. Silver is the key to our personal freedom and sovereignty.

I sat down with Ken Schortgen, Jr., The Daily Economist, to open 2018 with a look at what is happening right now in several areas of our world. 2017 was the year of cryptocurrencies and 2018 is going to be the year of…? I don’t think one person predicted cryptocurrencies would rise like they did in 2017. Read More

01.05.18- 4 Financial Predictions for 2018 That Could Impact Gold
Peter Reagan

Last year we saw some important trends in the economy: a decline in thedollar index, the market breaking records, and an increase in the price of oil. Not to mention, the Fed finally began its quantitative tightening plans.

As we look forward into the New Year of 2018, it’s important to look back at these financial trends to see how they might affect us during the next 12 months.

If the last year was anything to go by, investors may be asking themselves some important questions. Read More

01.04.18- The Next Great Bull Market
in Gold Has Begun

Jim Rickards

A new, long-term, secular bull market in gold has begun.

This new trend will take gold past $1,400 per ounce by the end of 2018, past $4,000 per ounce by 2020 (if not sooner) and ultimately to $10,000 per ounce or higher by the mid-2020s.

This bull market actually began on Dec. 17, 2015, when the dollar price of gold sank to $1,051 per ounce. This new bull market was two years old last weekend.

That’s OK. Bull markets begin slowly, almost unnoticed in the gloom of the prior bear market. The biggest gains often come after a few years when the crowd catches on and the price action gains momentum.  Read More

01.03.18- Silver prices likely to rocket by mid-year
on solar push

Madhvi Sally and Nishtha Saluja

NEW DELHI: Traders expect silver prices to touch Rs 40,000-41,000 a kg in the physical market by the middle of this year as demand for solar panels and electrical vehicles is increasing. The metal closed at Rs 39,237 a kg in the spot market in 2017-end. 

"Demand for silver has been increasing since the past few years and so have the prices. Demand is largely coming from solar panel and electric vehicle manufacturers. We expect silver prices to be bullish this year and may touch Rs 40,000-41,000 a kg on MCX or in the physical market by July-August," said Anuj Gupta, deputy vice-president of research, Angel Commodities. Read More

01.02.18- Quantum Change in Gold and Silver Demand, 2 Jan 2018
Dr. Keith Weiner

We hope everyone had a happy New Year.

There is a long informercial airing on American TV. It shows an endless parade of senior citizens, struggling to pay their bills, unable to buy that motorized stairway lift, play golf, or eat out at restaurants. The solution?

Get a reverse mortgage! The number to call is 1-800-GET-CASH. That number again is one eight hundred get your free cash now!

To summarize the point of the commercial—if not the terms of the fine print—the senior gets a monthly check, and this free money pays for all the things currently missing in his life. Free, as in magic unicorns and rainbows. Right? Read More

01.01.18- January Won’t Be Just A Silver Price Advance But A SUSTAINABLE Advance
Clive Maund

For many weeks we have been waiting patiently, like vultures perched on the branches of trees, for the Large Specs to go belly up and croak, and the good news is that they just have, so it’s time for us to swoop down and feast on the carcasses, the carcasses being silver and the better silver stocks, which are at good prices here, and although they have already started rallying over the past week or two, the COT structure is now much healthier, suggesting that they will continue to advance.

On the 6-month silver chart we can see the breakdown from a Symmetrical triangle that occurred late in November leading to a drop well into December, and also how silver has slowly recovered over the past two weeks. Read More

12.30.17- In Gold We Trust!
Rick Mills

Due to its unique properties, gold was one of the first metals discovered by mankind. Gold is found at surface in flakes and nuggets, making it easily mineable. Historians agree the Egyptians were the first to smelt it and make gold jewellery using the lost-wax method. The funeral mask of King Tut is one of the most stunningly beautiful examples of Egyptian goldsmithing. The Egyptians also learned how to alloy gold with other metals, to vary hardness and color.

While gold was rare and valuable, it was also ideal for pressing into coins. Because gold coins were portable, private and permanent, they fit the early definition of a currency. Gold could be used as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and a store of value. Read More

12.2.17- The Next BIG MOVE In The Gold Price After December IS UP
Michael Ballanger

There are occasions in my life where being correct in a trade or a forecast or an event absolutely fails to excite me. Like predicting the death of a pet or the failure of a business, there is absolutely no joy in waking up to the realization that one’s analytical abilities were put to the test and prevailed.

In December 2015, I made one of the best calls of my career when I announced the terminus of the 2011-2015 Great Bear Market in Gold at $1,045, but what followed was neither the clinking of champagne flutes nor the beating of puffed-up chests. Instead, I was consumed with a slow, simmering rage not unlike the emotion one feels at returning to a burgled home or boosted auto. Read More

12.28.17- Asian Metals Market Update:

Chintan Karnani

Direction of the US dollar will be the key. US dollar Index is on the verge of a technical breakdown. Gold, copper and silver are on the verge of a technical breakout. People are going to flock back to gold and silver investing once they fall off the cliff of crypto currency trading. Do not write off gold and silver. They are still the long term tigers of the investing world. Tigers are very lazy animal but still they are the king of the forest. Gold and silver like tigers could see lazy price moves in the short term. 

Industrial metals are getting added price benefit after China orders closure of copper factories to curb winter pollution. I will be careful day trading in industrial metals despite the bullish technical. Read More

12.27.17- A Ten Year Deal For Silver?
Ted Butler

Here’s a thought that I fully acknowledge didn’t originate with me, but from a close associate, even though it incorporates many of my findings. If it does come to fruition, I will gladly reveal my associate’s identity to give him his proper due; but in case it doesn’t, I’ll spare him any embarrassment for an incorrect premise. As I think you’ll see, I can’t deny that my friend’s premise seems to tie up all the loose ends about the silver manipulation.

In a few short months, we will hit the ten year anniversary of perhaps the most seminal event in modern silver history – the takeover of the failing investment bank, Bear Stearns, by JPMorgan in March 2008.  Bear Stearns failed as a firm due to a variety of problems which, in effect, caused a run on the bank. But what makes the failure and subsequent takeover so prominent in silver history was the revelation shortly thereafter that Bear had been the biggest short seller in COMEX  silver and gold futures and was replaced in that role by JPMorgan. Read More

12.26.17- A Collapsing Dollar Will Trigger The Next Big Move In Gold And Silver
Dave Kranzler

When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you–when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice–you may know that your society is doomed. – from “Atlas Shrugged”

Sorry MAGA-enthusiastics, it’s all a lie.  The tax legislation just passed will lead to higher Government spending deficits, a near-parabolic acceleration in Government debt issuance and a possible collapse of the dollar.  The U.S. is in systemic collapse.  Perhaps the biggest manifestation of this is the grand money-grab by the elitists enabled by blatant political corruption.

12.25.17- ”It’s A Wonderful Life” Is A Lesson To Hold Gold Outside of The Banking System
Mark O'Byrne

Frank Capra’s 1946 film It’s A Wonderful Life is one that many families will be settling down to watch this Christmas weekend. A story that is ultimately about a suicidal man is one of the most watched holiday films of all time.

Interestingly it wasn’t all that big a hit upon its release (despite garnering five Academy Award nominations) and was disliked by some of the highest intelligence authorities and political thinkers.

Ayn Rand worked with the FBI to identify Hollywood Communist propaganda and helped them to conclude that the Christmas film contained several subversive tendencies, including “demonising bankers” and “attempting to instigate class warfare”, and was “written by Communist sympathisers”. Read More

12.23.17- Why Silver Will Outperform Gold 400%
Franklin Sanders

Over the course of the present bull market in silver and gold, silver should rise about four times as fast as gold. That forecast arises from silver’s historic performance, especially during the 20th century, as well as its present fundamentals. The best way to profit from that trend is to swap back and forth from silver to gold with the rise and fall in the gold/silver ratio. That strategy will convert a sterile investment into one that pays dividends, and possibly double the ounces you own over the life of the bull market

Alas, poor silver is the Rodney Dangerfield of precious metals—it can’t get no respect. It certainly should merit respect, since its 20th century performance has far outpaced gold. It’s volatility and superior fundamentals ought to make it much more attractive than gold. Read More

12.22.17- 2018 could be the year for gold
Alasdair Macleod

We approach 2018 having seen the seeds planted in recent years for a monetary revolution. They include the massive world-wide expansion of credit and debt since the last credit crisis, and the advent of potentially disruptive cryptocurrencies. Geopolitical shifts of tectonic scale have occurred, hardly noticed by the ordinary person. That was until now. We are now on board a train which is gathering speed towards its buffers: the end of dollar hegemony and its potential collapse.

It might take a few years yet to get there, but the speed of our train is dependant to a large degree to how the engine’s boiler is stoked by America through her isolationist plans. It is very hard to see how the dollar cannot decline significantly with America’s autarkic trade policies, benefiting gold. Read More

12.21.17- There’s A Govt/JP Morgan 10-Year Deal To Rig Silver Prices That’s Coming To An End
In March 2018?

Ted Butler says “It aligns perfectly with everything I think I know about silver, the US Government, COMEX and JPMorgan…”

Here’s a thought that I fully acknowledge didn’t originate with me, but from a close associate, even though it incorporates many of my findings.

What Peak Gold, Interest Rates And Current Geopolitical Tensions Mean For Gold in 2018

– Peak gold will be a major driver, gold over $5,000/oz ‘not beyond the realms of possibility’

– Relationship between interest rates and inflation are one of the key catalysts for price

– Geopolitical uncertainty will continue to play a key role in determining the price of gold

12.19.17- Silver: Double-Digit Gains This Year,
Then “Tulip Mania”

Peter Krauth

If you want the upside potential of Bitcoin with minimal downside risk, then silver may well be your answer.

The precious metal has offered not just centuries, but millennia of intrinsic monetary and industrial value.

And despite that inherent worth, silver sometimes goes through frenzied buying manias, not unlike Bitcoin’s 2017 run-up.

In my view, that same kind of “Tulip Mania” lies ahead for silver investors, only bigger. And while that may not happen in 2018, it almost surely will in the next few years. Read More

12.18.17- WORLD SILVER PRODUCTION: 3 Charts You Won’t See Anywhere Else
Steve St Angelo

The rate at which global silver production increased over the past century is quite astonishing.  When Columbus arrived in America (1492), the world was only producing 7 million oz of silver a year.

Today, the world’s largest primary silver mine, Fresnillo’s Sauicto Mine, produced three times that amount in just one year (22 million oz, 2016).  Yes, we have come along way in 500 years.

Just think about that for a minute.  One silver mine last year produced three times the global amount in 1493. Read More

12.16.17- Long Term Patterns in Stocks,
Gold and Crude

Gary Christenson

The MONTHLY S&P 500 Index

The green arrows are 10 years long. Peaks indicated are in 1987, 2007, and potentially 2017.

The pause in 1997 was not a top because the market rally extended into early 2000. The current peak in 2017 could also extend, but valuation and timing indicators show high risk.

When the monthly RSI (timing indicator at bottom of graph) exceeds 70, turns down, and prices fall below the red support line, a significant correction or crash is possible. Those crashes occurred in 1987, 2000, and 2008. The S&P is ready to make a similar correction or crash in 2017 or 2018. The RSI has reached its highest level in two decades. Read More

12.15.17- Some Key Reasons Gold
Should Shine in 2018

Peter Schiff

The last few weeks have been tough on gold. If you have a short-term mentality, you might even think the gold market has gone bearish. But as World Gold Council chief market strategist John Reade pointed out in a piece he wrote for the December issue of WGC Gold Investor, 2017 has been good for gold. And he sees some key reasons to believe 2018 will be as well.

The gold price has moved ahead this year, despite rising US interest rates and a persistent bull market in equities. Looking ahead, there are several reasons to believe that gold could maintain upward trajectory. Investor attention may have been focused on US equity markets, technology stocks and cryptocurrencies this year, but gold has still had a decent 2017, delivering double-digit growth in the first 11 months alone. Read More

12.14.17- Why the New Tax Reform Bill
Is a Win-Win for Gold

During his election campaign, one of Trump’s promises was to lower taxes. And now, it’s expected to become a reality. The new tax reform bill has already been approved by the Senate, and the House is expected to pass it with flying colors before the end of the year.

Such a move means it will be the first time the U.S. will rewrite its tax codes since 1986.

After witnessing some of the most crushing tax rates under the Obama administration, the bill can’t come soon enough for business owners. Should it come to fruition, it’s expected to cut corporate tax down from thirty-five percent to twenty percent. Read More

12.13.17- Gold & Crypto Destroy Fiat
Stewart Thomson

Please  click here now. I’ve predicted that a long period of deflation in the Western world would end with a Fed taper, rate hikes and quantitative tightening.

That’s clearly in play now, and the deregulation of America’s thousands of small banks is perhaps the most exciting event taking place on this new “inflationary frontier”. Because of these powerful monetary trends, I’ve predicted big problems ahead for Wall Street and somewhat better times for Main Street.

Having said, that, I think investors would be making a major mistake to assume America is going to experience any kind of fabulous rebirth and relive an economic growth era like the 1950s, let alone the Golden Age of the 1880s. Read More

12.12.17- CPM Group’s Jeff Christian Responds “NEGATIVELY” To The SRSrocco Report On Silver Investment Demand
Steve St Angelo

The debate continues between the SRSrocco Report and CPM Group’s Jeff Christian on the fundamentals of the silver market.  After my article, in which I questioned the CPM Group’s exclusion of silver investment demand from their supply and demand analysis, Jeff Christian responded with a comment on my website.  I am glad that Mr. Christian responded because it now allows me the opportunity to explain in more detail why I disagree with the CPM Group’s analysis.

12.11.17- 2018 Will be Gold’s Time to Shine
Avi Gilburt

This week, Your News to Know brings you the latest stories involving gold and the overall economy. Stories include: Gold’s time to shine will be at the end of 2018, how gold could fix Turkey’s troubled currency, and Russia and China could set global price based on trading.

Gold’s time to shine will be at the end of 2018

JP Morgan’s outlook for gold in 2018 is markedly positive, especially in the second half of the year. As stated in a recent Kitco article, during the first half of 2018, gold should average $1,295 an ounce, with the average climbing to $1,340 in the second half, said the bank in its 2018 Global Commodities Outlook.

12.09.17- The Government Manipulation Of Precious Metals Caused The Rush Into Bitcoin
Michael Ballanger

“Just as central bank largesse is responsible for the asset bubbles popping up around the world, it is also the impetus for Bitcoin…”

In the year 301 AD, the Roman unit of barter was the denarius, which had originally been 95% pure silver when introduced by Augustus at the end of the first century BC but by the time of Diocletian’s rule, it had moved to 50,000 denarii to a pound of gold. Ten year later, it took 120,000 denarii to buy a pound of gold and by 337, that figure was 20,000,000. What had occurred in a mere 400 years was that a slow and agonizing erosion in the purchasing power of the Roman currency accelerated to full fiat disintegration and that complete and total disregard for the denarius was attributed as one of the underlying causes of the Fall of the Roman Empire. Read More

12.08.17- Gold Investors Should
Pay Attention To Bitcoin

AG Thorson

What an exciting time to be a market technician. It’s not very often we get to witness a full-blown speculative mania, and Bitcoin is just that. Prices are up 1,500% in 12-months, and everyday people are looking to buy. The lot points to a bubble and Gold investors should take note. Why? Because when you see similar behavior in the precious metal sector…it’s time to exit.

Over the last few days, I’ve been approached by several friends and acquaintances interested in Bitcoin. Most, know nothing about cryptocurrencies, but their excitement is palpable. One described reading how China was going to switch to Bitcoins and that he needed to get in before it was too late. I think he severely misunderstood the article, but I listened anyway. Read More

12.07.17- The Dirty Secret of COMEX Delivery Revealed!
Bill Holter

Since the outsized dumps of paper gold and silver dating all the way back to 2013, we goldbugs have claimed COMEX was ripe for a delivery default. We were of course viciously trolled and called crazies in comment sections after going through the logic of how much was being sold and how much open interest there was going into “first notice” days versus inventory.

We were called chicken littles because each delivery month would see open interest collapse going into and during the delivery process and default from excess demand always evaporated at the last moments. I wrote several times and questioned the logic of accounts that were fully funded to take delivery…they just “went away”. It defied logic to say the least. We also speculated but could never prove these fully funded longs were “bribed” to not take delivery. Read More

12.06.17- Are We Ready For A Gold And Silver Rally?
Avi Gilburt

Many of you who follow my analysis have learned quite well how I look at the market. And, those of you who have read me in the past know that I do not view fundamentals as being relevant to determining when we can see a major turn in the metals market. 

In fact, in 2011, the fundamentals for the metals market were exceptionally strong, with most everyone believing in the certainty of gold exceeding the $2,000 mark, just before we began a multi-year pullback. 

Moreover, the fundamentals were terribly weak just as we were hitting the bottom in 2015, with most market participants being certain that gold was about to break below $1,000. Read More

12.05.17- Gold Prices Will Jump After the December Fed Meeting
Peter Krauth

Gold prices
 haven’t been making headlines to compete with record-high stocks or Bitcoin reaching $10,000. But that’s all about to change…

The price of gold has appeared stagnant since October.

Normally, traders flock to the precious metal during times of uncertainty and instability. That’s why it was surprising that not even another ballistic missile fired by North Korea was enough to rally gold prices.

The precious metal continues to trade in a narrow trading range about $25 wide. Read More

12.04.17- Seasonal slam
Alasdair Macleod

Gold and silver suffered a sell-off, repeating what we saw in late November in both the last two years. The attack on precious metals is futures-driven, and occurs during New York trading hours. Gold fell $12 from last Friday’s close to $1275 in early European trade this morning, and silver was hammered, falling 60 cents to $16.40.

Last year, gold fell between the last week of November and 15 December from $1184 to $1128. And in 2015, gold fell from $1075 to $1050 on 17 December. In both these cases, the December lows marked the end of significant declines, and were followed by strong rallies. In both these cases, the Fed signalled a rise in the Fed funds rate, well in advance. They were classic cases of sell the story, buy the fact. Read More

12.02.17- The War on Gold Intensifies: It Betrays the Elitists’ Panic and Augurs Their Coming Defeat
Stewart Dougherty

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained, you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Magicians use distraction, deflection and misdirection to conduct their tricks. They get their audiences to look to the left while they perform their magic undetected on the right. So do con artists and swindlers.

George H. W. Bush, in a speech delivered to a joint session of Congress on 11 September 1990 entitled “Toward a New World Order,” headlined a geopolitical theme that has garnered a great deal of attention ever since. And while Bush was not the first person to use the term, it struck a global nerve when he invoked it. Read More

12.01.17-Breaking My Silence Regarding A Long-Time Silverbug Turning His Back On Silver
Bill Holter

“Every one is entitled to their opinions even if it defies logic…”

So many have contacted me recently regarding Andy Hoffman’s sudden flip flop on silver that I feel it necessary to comment publicly.  To be clear, this is not a “hit piece” on Andy, rather using logic and common sense I hope it is some comfort for those worried.  I believe what and “how” Andy has acted can be classified as irresponsible for several reasons. Read More
