Gold, silver, and their miners’ stocks suffer their weakest seasonals of the year in early summers.  With traders’ attention normally diverted to vacations and summer fun, interest in and demand for precious metals usually wane.  Without outsized investment demand,...
Columbus, Ohio – By signing legislation last night, Governor Mike DeWine has officially ended Ohio’s sales taxation of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium bullion and coins, enabling the Buckeye State to join Arkansas the two states having canceled taxation of the...
June wasn’t too kind to gold. As the chart below shows, the yellow metal plunged more than 7.2% in the last month, the biggest monthly decline since November 2016. In consequence of the June rout, the whole first half of this year was awful for gold, which lost 6.6% in...

Gold mining stocks set new multi-year lows in recent days, another sign that gold is very undervalued.
“Rich Dad, Poor Dad” author Robert Kiyosaki expects the USD to become worthless very soon. In other words, he thinks the world’s reserve currency will resemble Zimbabwean dollars in terms of value. Many central banks, but most importantly the Federal Reserve, are...
June 28th has come and gone, which means the much-anticipated Basel III “macro prudential regulation” to make so-called “safe” banks “safer” has officially kicked off in the European Union (as it will on July 1 for U.S. banks and January 1, 2022 for UK banks).
The precious metals sector has been in a downtrend since August 2020:
While we might see a small uptick in gold prices soon, it’s not likely to last long. We should be prepared to open our parachutes any time now. The decline in gold continues, and while we might see a small pop-up higher here, it’s unlikely to last. And why could gold...

The FOMC caused turmoil last week, but the statements have only short-term effects. In the past, the FED could not predict anything correctly, but only react. It will be the same this time. Real interest rates are negative in the U.S. across all maturities, which is in...
There has been considerable, and some would say tedious, discussion on the subject of inflation over the past several weeks. The Fed wants it. The markets await it. Investors and consumers worry about it. If it does come, the Fed thinks it will be transitory. Others...
Recent collapses of bridges and a Florida condo building highlight what can go wrong when basic structural and foundational elements are neglected and allowed to deteriorate.

After gold’s fall, a relief rally seemed to be quite possible. However, gold may not have enough energy to do even that before collapsing.
The 40-day cycle in gold is very close to bottoming. Ideal support arrives near $1750. Finishing the week above $1760 would support a bottom in gold and renewed uptrend in precious metals.
Today’s monetary system is based upon a lie. The lie is that you can get something for nothing, or perhaps more simply stated, wealth can be printed. History has shown throughout 5000 years that whenever a country has tried to maintain this illusion (lie), failure has...
