National Debt - Or 1 is Too Many and 12 Are Not Enough

The Vietnam War in the US is often mentioned as a major cause of the inflationary 1970s. The war and spending escalated in the late 1960s after Johnson became President. The national debt increased about $20 Billion between 1967 and 1968, which was big money back then. But 11 years later the national debt increased by $80 Billion. Once deficit spending and currency devaluation began, it was difficult to return to fiscal sanity.

Gold: Surviving the Last Few Months of the Bear Market

As most of you probably know by now, it’s been my belief for about a year that gold’s bear market would not end until at least testing the previous C-wave top at $1050. Every D-wave correction in the secular bull has at least retraced to the previous C-wave top except one.

One Of The World's Largest Silver Miners Slams The CFTC About Silver Market Manipulation

It has long been known to silver market watchers that when it comes to the price of paper silver, there has long been a chronic and extremely concentrated shorting presence at the Comex, one which the CFTC has persistently refused to address even though it consistently surpasses the proposed limits on derivative positions. Now, at long last, a Canadian silver miner, First Majestic Silver Corp., has decided to take the CFTC to task.

Gold & Silver: The June Swoon

The month of June is typically a boring one for gold and silver price action, although the latter half of the month tends to be a bit better for gold. That’s the seasonal chart for silver, courtesy of Dimitri Speck. India is the world’s main market for silver, and demand shrivels a bit during the May – June timeframe. As a result, the silver price usually swoons, and frustrated investors can make irrational statements about this mighty metal.

"After three years of aggressive capital spending to build and expand four of our silver operations, the Company is planning to take a short breather to focus on treasury growth and free cash flow. As the expansionary capital investments at both Del Toro and San Martin come to an end, we look forward to the increased production and improved efficiencies. We still have a lot of work ahead of us to accomplish our next goal of reaching 20 million ounces of production per year; however, given the low silver price environment focusing on further cost reductions and treasury growth continues to be management's top priority."

Market Report: Firmer tone for gold and silver

This week started with a severe markdown in gold and silver prices when markets opened in the Far East on Monday morning, taking gold down $12 to $1278 and silver only 12 cents to $19.03. The clue in this was the resilience of silver, which hardly moved: it was an attack on the gold price presumably designed to take out stop-losses.

The Mises View: "Silver Money and Inflation"

Silver Market Morning: May 30, 2014

There are reports out there that say that there is a gold deficit of around 4.35 tonnes a week, meaning that more gold is being bought than produced. That’s why the SPDR sales are important if the gold price is to be held at current levels. This makes the fall this week even more difficult to understand. The lack of visible physical sales of gold from speculators and the investors, tells us that there is very little momentum behind the downward path of gold and it can turn around in a heartbeat. We therefore attribute the fall to a temporary drop in demand due to wholesalers looking for lower prices. But they can only do this for a short while.

Silver Market Morning: June 20, 2014

In 1973 the oil price jumped from $8 a barrel to $35 a barrel while gold jumped from $42 an ounce to over $120 an ounce. We do not see a direct link over the years between the two. What we do see is a moving up together in times of, not only political crisis, but monetary crisis. In those days the dollar was suspect and continued so until Volker forced interest rates up to 26% in the mid 1980’. We are moving back into days of tremendous uncertainty as the ripples from the sectarian violence spread through the financial markets of the world.

One of the most blatant examples ever

This week has been one of the most blatant examples of naked PM shorting ever, amidst some of the most PM-bullish news ever. Particularly, yesterday's transparent attacks as TPTB pulled out all stops to push the 10-year Treasury yield above 2.5% couldn't be more obvious - as I forensically described in yesterday's AudioBlog, "best laid plans." And what a shock, Monday is COMEX options expiration day - when no doubt, countless $1,300 and $21 options for gold and silver, respectively, were outstanding.

Silver Tacks on the "30" Handle

Silver needs to close out the week on a strong note to punch through the downtrending resistance line noted on this weekly chart. The ability to put a handle of "30" in front of the price is extremely helpful from both a psychological and technical perspective but a solid trending move is still not yet in the cards until silver can decisively gain the $32.50 level. Even at that, dip buyers should begin making their appearance in this market as the technical posture has changed significantly this week.
