Large precious metals speculators raised their bullish net positions in the Gold futures markets this week, according to the latest Commitment of Traders (COT) data released by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) on Friday.

When two opponents are locked in a quite evenly balanced bitter and struggle, the balance tends to sway first one way and then the other as either side manages to find and exploit an opportunity until the other counters it then pulls out all stops to regain any lost...

Be it from the Golden sun of the Côte d'Azur to now the southwest corner of the Golden State, all that glitters is everything -- except Gold. Fed-Speak and Tariff-Talk both served to give Gold a Fatal Friday Finale in finishing the week yesterday at 1282, price...

When I was a young lad, there was a classmate (let's call him "Frankie") in the very early years of my education whose behavior was quite often deemed as "peculiar" and while I found him immensely entertaining...

I thought I’d start out with the Dow Jones’ Bear’s Eye View (BEV) chart going back to 1885 showing every bear market decline of the past one hundred thirty-three years.  This week ended with the Dow Jones 5.73% from its last all-time high of January 26th, which is...

Sifting through Twitter, I came across a curious assertion posited as a reply to a post on “unemployment” on Steph Pomboy’s twitter feed (@spomboy).  The tweeter asked, “have you noticed that gold is being dumped?”  But was gold “dumped?”  Perhaps the tweeter should...

Gold is facing what is potentially its toughest test of the year right now. Its attempt at rallying despite a strengthening dollar will test not only the buying power of the gold bulls who believe the metal can rally despite the powerful headwind from gold’s...

Gold weathered the Federal Reserve’s 7th rate hike of this cycle this week. Gold-futures speculators and to a lesser extent gold investors have long feared Fed rate hikes, selling ahead of them. Higher rates are viewed as the nemesis of zero-yielding gold. But...

Powell delivered and hiked again. Draghi halved the amount of purchased assets, but did not have the courage to end the quantitative easing program. Does the former have bigger cojones than the latter? And what does it mean for the gold market?

Brexit, Quitaly and Grexit. Debt Defaults, Stock Shocks, Bond Bubbles, Properties Popping, Derivative Defaults and Banks Busting. Well that is just some of the events that twill take place in the next few years. But the world is living in ig...

The recent growth acceleration in the EU could distract attention from problems of the common bloc. Fortunately, you can always count on Italy. Whenever you start thinking that only bright future is ahead of the union, the descendants of the proud Romans remind...

Why a seemingly run-of-the-mill announcement yesterday by Fed chairman Powell might signal a major turning point for the gold market. . . and perhaps ALL markets. At the end of Fed chairman Jerome Powell’s opening statement for his press conference yesterday he...

Regular readers of Goldmoney’s Insights should be aware by now that the cycle of business activity is fuelled by monetary policy, and that the periodic booms and slumps experienced since monetary policy has been used in an attempt to manage economic outcomes are the...

Over the last 12 months, the purchasing power of your dollar has dropped at the fastest rate since 2011. According to the latest data released by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) jumped by 2.8% year-over-year in May. That follows on...

According to the Gann astro/cycles and my wave counts, we are near another important top. Ideally, this top should occur on June 14/15. The next possible cycle low is due sometime between June 28/29 and July 3/5 depending on the count and final top. My preferred...

Back in April, we first reported upon the surge in the use of "Exchanges For Physical" on the COMEX. We thought we should provide an update today. As a refresher, here's a link to the first report from eight weeks ago:

Gold is one of the rarest elements in the world, making up roughly 0.003 parts per million of the earth’s crust. But how much gold is the world digging up each year and what countries produce the most?
