Is the tide turning for Precious Metals? Part II

In our new book The Silver Manifesto, David Morgan and I not only discuss the debt bomb waiting to explode in most every western world economy but also the fact that the Fed will NEVER willingly hike interest rates by any material degree because (i) the monetary policy in place isn’t conducive to economic growth, instead promoting vast misallocations of capital and (ii) because the U.S. economy is a debt based economy which needs constant debt financing, the Fed would never hike interest rates as the cost of servicing the interest on newly acquired debt would spiral out of control, thereby causing deficit spending to go through the roof. Substantially higher deficit spending would necessarily require even more debt accumulation and the cycle would repeat itself.

Losing Control

The Fed is on the verge of completely losing control of its Treasury bond "QE" Ponzi Scheme; as in reality, the 32-year Treasury Bond market is decidedly OVER. China and Japan are selling, the rest of the world is selling, and thus, the Fed will likely be forced to announce "QE5" around the same time they were initially expected to start "tapering."

Silver Market Update

Much of what is written for the Gold Market update applies equally to silver, so it will not be repeated here.

Gold prices are AGAIN being capped at a round number, this time $1,590/oz despite a veritable cornucopia of gold bullish news, from steadily beating Middle East “war drums,” to FIVE separate pieces of weak U.S. economic data, to the implosion of the MOST IMPORTANT STOCK IN THE MARKET – “Margin Stanley” – following abysmal earnings that included the disclosure that it still needs to post $3 billion for collateral related to the recent Moody’s downgrade. Silver, too, is being heavily capped, at the same KEY ROUND NUMBER of $27.50/oz that has served as the Cartel’s line in the sand for roughly three weeks.

Better Places to Keep Your Money than the Bank

My local bank in Colorado is literally offering to pay me no interest --just an offensive 0.05% annually, before taxes. The interest rate triples to 0.15% when the balance exceeds $50,000. Absolutely no incentive when one considers the risks the bank imposes on your capital, retaining only pennies on the dollar of your money, then leveraging your capital -- fractional banking. How can I be interested in a 0% savings rate deposited at a relatively risky institution while supporting the fractional banking system?
