Gold is testing its previous 2020 highs, but silver plunged anyway, which created a very special situation. Namely, the gold to silver ratio just jumped to the 100 level. This may not seem like a big deal, because ultimately people buy metals, not their ratio, but...

I appeared to occupy a unique place on the lunatic fringe when, many years ago, I started writing about the prospect of a short squeeze on the dollar. When I bounced this idea off a half-dozen finance professors, each had the same response: "Huh?"  Their incredulity...

Since 2009 the stock market has had for major waves of investor fear (volatility) take place which was in 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2018. Each time the market corrected we saw a drop anywhere from 12% – 18% and both traders and investors became emotional and started...

Last week's trading saw gold forming its low in Monday's session, here doing so at the 1576.30 figure. From there, strength was seen into late-week, with the metal pushing up to a Friday high of 1692.80 - before backing off the same into the weekly close. For the...

There's something about the Gold price of 1691. Oh to be sure, 'tis 16 points above our forecast high for this year of 1675, a level which according to the "Coronavirus? Who Knew? Dept." may in hindsight appear -- as we suggested back on 04 January before anyone...

Brexit came as a shock to the political bureaucracy that comprises the European Union. They had, and still have an ostrich-like stance with their heads in the sand and their rear ends exposed to passing dangers. Their economic incompetence has been exposed for all...

Yesterday, the Fed cut interest rates by 50 basis points. Not during a regular monetary policy meeting, but in a surprising move. But what are the implications for the gold market specifically? Last week, I wrote that the spread of the new coronavirus to Europe and...

Most people assume that the central bank prints money when it buys bonds. They further assume that this increase in the quantity of money causes an increase in the general price level. And, this leads them to assume that the value of the money is 1 / P (P is the...

The Fed injected a record amount of liquidity this morning via its Repo Market Operation to supply dealers in the interbank market.  While investors may be reassured by the huge 1293 point rally on the Dow yesterday, the global contagion and its impact are just...
