08.17.22- Understanding the Gold Cycle
Jordan Roy Byrne

Regular readers by now are familiar with Gold’s fundamental drivers and the influence of the stock market. 

Falling and or negative real interest rates are the fundamental driver for Gold and are usually a byproduct of a weak stock market and economic recession. 

However, today I want to focus on the larger cycle for Gold and at which points it performs and performs best. Secondly, perhaps more importantly, the Gold cycle has major implications for the gold miners. Read More

08.15.22- Gold Is About Value; The Miners Are a Speculation Upon 'Value'
Gary Tanashian

Gold and gold miners have two completely different utilities

Gold is…

A pretty rock that is dug out of the ground. This heavy rock has been assigned value by humans since time immemorial. That value has been its stability as an asset, a refuge from the excesses of rampant speculation, the likes of which often visit stocks (e.g. climaxes in 2000, 2007 and 2022) and sometimes commodities (e.g. 2008, 2011 and 2022). Gold is a good proxy for money, or what money should be. A stable entity retaining value through the up and down cycles over decades and centuries. Read More

08.13.22- The Massive Lies of Ukraine's Gold
J. Kim

The regular Military Industrial Banking (MIB) lies of gold have become even more ridiculous than usual, especially those forwarded by the mass media.   BTC maximalists have always deemed gold “worthless” , and thus BTC maximalists have always failed to understand the central role of  sovereign gold reserves in all economic and military wars, In any war provoked and started by the MIB complex, they have always looted gold, when substantial amounts existed to be looted, because of their vulnerable state as a consequence of war. No one knows exactly what happened to Saddam’s alleged substantial amounts of gold beyond the credible assumption that US military forces loaded it onto a cargo plane for a final destination of US Central Bank vaults. Read More

08.12.22- Gold, Liquid Gold, and Inflation
Keith Weiner

It’s pretty, isn’t it? Gold has a unique appearance. It is also astonishingly heavy—much heavier than it has any right to be. It’s just an inch and a quarter in diameter yet weighs 0.075 pounds. Everyone should hold one in his hand (and own a few).

But that’s not why many gold analysts today are saying you should buy gold. They are saying it will protect you from inflation. And the Keynesians and bitcoiners are smirking that gold is not, in fact, protecting you from inflation. Read More

This action should be immediately followed by a special legislative session placing permanent restrictions on federal agents operating in the state of Florida. State representative and congressional candidate Anthony Sabatini has stated the need to call a special legislative session to pass a law prohibiting federal agents operating within the state without the state’s approval.

08.10.22- Gold Stocks Deeply Undervalued, Upside Potential Is Breathtaking
Adam Hamilton

The gold miners’ stocks have been hammered to deeply-undervalued levels in recent months.  Slammed by heavy gold-futures selling driven by an extreme parabolic US-dollar surge, the gold stocks have been largely abandoned.  That left their stock prices anomalously low relative to gold, which overwhelmingly drives their earnings.  This portends a massive mean-reversion higher to normalize gold-stock levels to gold.

Silver bullion2 had a positive month but has declined 12.66% YTD. Gold mining equities3 continued to decline in July and are down 14.80% YTD.

08.01.22- Whole World is a Banana Republic
– Bill Holter

Greg Hunter

A few months back, precious metals expert and financial writer Bill Holter predicted the economy was going to tank, and today, the U.S. is officially in a recession.  Holter says it’s not just America buckling under enormous debt, but the entire world.  Holter explains, “This is only the start.  They are trying to debate whether or not we are in a recession, but it’s pretty much a lock. Let me put his into perspective.  If you add up all the global GDP’s, we are roughly $100 trillion.  The problem is there is well over $350 trillion in debt worldwide. . . . When I graduated college . . . anything above 100% debt to GDP was considered a banana republic.  Look where we are today.  Globally, it’s 350% debt to GDP.  What that tells me is the world is a banana republic.” Read More

07.30.22- Gold – Summer Rally Has Started
Florian Grummes

It’s been three and half tough months for gold and silver investors. Stock market and crypto investors have been suffering since November 2021 already, though. Now, after a bloodbath of almost 400 USD in the gold market, last week’s reversal looks promising. Gold – Summer rally has started.

Gold prices reached an important high on March 8th, 2022, at around 2,070 USD and have since then slid into a brutal sell-off over the course of the last three and a half months. The final low of this wave down has been seen on Thursday, 21st of July, at 1,681 USD. Thus, gold has lost almost 400 USD or 18.8% in a rather short period of time. Read More

It is increasingly obvious that the economic cost of sanctioning Russia is immense, and there’s now growing evidence of all major economies facing a downturn in economic activity.

but It’s Still Not Enough for Gold

Arkadiusz Sieron, PhD

The inflation rate accelerated again. It implies a more hawkish Fed and is bad for gold in the short-run, but good in the long-term.

Another inflation report – and another upside surprise! The CPI increased 1.3% in June, after rising 1% in May, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a reminder, we are talking here about monthly changes – not so long ago, such levels were reserved only for annual inflation rates! However, this was in the past, and the present reality is inflationary. The June rise was the steepest monthly increase since September 2005, but then it was a temporary spike, while now there is a clear upward trend, as the chart below shows.

07.09.22- The Precious Metals Sector Is Percolating For A Monster Move Higher
Dave Kranzler

With all of the factors in place to support a big move higher in the precious metals sector (raging inflation, escalating geopolitical tensions, recessionary economy, etc), the recent market action is frustrating to say the least. To be sure, a certain percentage of the poor performance in gold, silver and mining stocks is attributable to the ongoing decline in the general stock market. It’s a bear market.

When capital pulls out of the markets (stocks and bonds), it pulls out of everything. March 2008 to late October 2008 is a good parallel to the current market. At some point there will be a catalyst, or catalysts, which triggers a positive divergence of the precious sector from the rest of the stock market. The most likely event will be reversal by the Fed of its monetary policy. 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.

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

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.
