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...

It was two years ago this week that I proclaimed that we were witnessing the final lows in the 2011–2015 bear market in the precious metals as gold traded down to $1,045 amidst total capitulation by the Large Specs and after massive short-covering by the Commercial...

Have you found the gold price in the last few months to be particularly boring? Well, fear not as it looks like it might all be about to take a turn upwards. Last Friday's Commitment of Traders (COT) report signaled we are close to bottoming and suggest that both...

Central bankers keep lamenting the fact that record low interest rates and record high currency creation haven’t generated enough inflation (because remember, for these guys inflation is a good thing rather than a dangerous disease).

It is my privilege now to welcome in Michael Pento, President and founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies and author of the book, The Coming Bond Market Collapse: How to Survive the Demise of the U.S. Debt Market. Michael is a well-known and successful money manager...

Silver and mining stocks declined for yet another day, but this time gold ended the session with a (slight, but still) gain. How can we interpret the latter? Is it a sign of strength? In short, not at all. In yesterday’s, alert we emphasized th...

The best performing precious metal for the week was palladium, but it clocked in with a price decline of 1.41 percent. In an interview with Sharps Pixley’s Lawrie Williams, precious metals specialist Ted Butler said his analysis shows that, for at least the past...

In the aftermath of the Great Financial Crisis, Central Banks began cornering the sovereign bond market via Zero or even Negative interest rates and Quantitative Easing (QE) programs. The goal here was to reflate the financial system by pushing the “risk free rate”...

It took a lot longer than it should have, but gold futures traders have finally started behaving “normally.” The speculators who were extremely, stubbornly long – and who are usually wrong when they’re this excited — had maintained their over-optimistic bets when...

This next set of ratio charts I consider to be the most important ratio charts if you are deciding whether to be an investor in the INDU or in Gold. When the price is rising The INDU ( Dow Jones Industrial Average ) (a proxy for General Stock Markets) is rising...

The price action of the past week has added to the perception that SPX is in the process of creating an intermediate top.

As I am known to do, I will peruse articles on the web to find some interesting tidbits. And, I found one in one of Lance Robert’s recent posts. Within this article, he cited a Doug Kass note, which stated: “Despite many who are sug...

Is this a major break in the long term trend for gold and silver? A break that can be expected to set in place a bearish trend for a good part of 2018? After perhaps the most relentless, intense pressure of the past 6 years since the high in 2011, prices of gold and...

Once again, the Dow Jones closed the week at a new all-time high, another BEV Zero in the Bear’s Eye View chart below. That makes 82 new all-time highs since last November’s presidential election. That’s 30% of the Dow Jones’ daily closings of the past year have...

Here are today's videos and charts.

There’s nothing like a bargain during the holidays. And here’s an unexpected one even I was surprised to see… It’s not easy to dig up industry-wide data on coin and bar premiums. To do it manually is incredibly time-consuming and then would be out of date as soon as...

I realize this theme could be wearing on some people, but with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer I am going to pound it until it either aborts or completes. It is, in my opinion, too important not to.

First published on Wednesday Dec 6 for members of ElliottWaveTrader.net:  The “sentiment” in the metals complex now ranges from indifferent to very bearish.  In fact, I am seeing many just posting how they are just fed up with the me...
We’ve been persistently bearish on precious metals since September and that has annoyed our readers. The weak price action, negative divergences and bearish fundamentals are too much to currently overcome for the time being. The gold stocks finall...

Last Saturday was the 75th anniversary of the Chicago Pile experiment. The experiment that proved for the first time that an atomic bomb could exist. The experiment was a key step in the Manhattan Project that went onto develop the infamous bomb in World War II.

We live in a time when currencies and financial markets have become political enterprises – creations of the world’s governments and central banks. Since we have never seen times like these, when so much depends on the monetary largesse of the policy-makers, no one...

There is a general belief, and that is all it is, that state finances fare better in an inflationary environment than a deflationary one. This perception arises from the transfer of wealth from lenders to the state through a devaluation of the currency, which occurs...

After a decade of monetary laxity, money and even bitcoins, fiat currencies have become a market commodity like tulips during the 1687 Dutch mania. Bitcoin has become an investment mania, made for the times and the craze has dwarfed the tech bubble.

And they're going to choose to let stocks go. The #1 driver of the stock market is Central Bank money printing. In 2017 alone, the BoJ and the European Central Bank (ECB) have printed over $1.5 TRILLION and funneled it into the financial system.

I am not trying to be a wise guy with the first half of the title (it’s a goof on alarmist media), but if you were not bear biased or outright bearish on the gold sector’s daily and weekly technicals, and its macro and sector fundamentals by now all you have left...

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 bub...
When you read the title of this article, I am sure you assumed this article would be all about the latest event of fake news which supposedly rocked the market this past Friday. Well, I am sorry to disappoint you. You see, many investors ha...
