Gold Magically Flows Back Into The GLD

Even without speculating whether or not the GLD actually holds all of the gold that it claims, the remarkable additions to "inventory" over the past month are certainly noteworthy.

The Deepening BS of The BLS

Lots of excitement today that the U.S. "unemployment rate" is under 5%. (I started chuckling just typing that!) How can this rate be so low given the paltry jobs numbers? And why are gold and silver down today? C'mon in and we'll explain (again).

Guest Post: "Gold -- It's Time To Pay Attention", by Mike Krieger of LibertyBlitzkrieg

I've gotten to know Mike over the years so I consider him a friend.

Therefore, this piece he published yesterday regarding gold should definitely merit your attention.

S&P 500 "Death Candle" Update

As you know, the U.S. stock market just began the year with its worst January performance since 2008. Hmmm. And what happened later in 2008? To that end, we have been projecting an end to this current bull market in stocks since the August 2015 appearance of a "death candle" on the charts. Today, we provide an update.

A Major New Offensive In The Currency Wars

The news today that the Bank of Japan has formally begun a policy of negative interest rates or NIRP has rocked the global markets. Go ahead and party on today, Garth, but the real world may intervene on your fun as soon as Monday.

The LBMA Strikes Back

We were alerted on Tuesday to an interesting new development in the Physical Exchange Wars. While we all patiently await the arrival of the Allocated Bullion Exchange, the LBMA has clearly cast its lot and support behind something called Allocated Bullion Solutions.
