Many are asking why gold is not rising, as just about every other commodity makes new highs in the backdrop of inflationary tailwinds. That’s a very fair question.
This week the Federal Reserve pre-announced an upcoming slowing in its enormous quantitative-easing money-printing campaign. That QE-tapering warning was widely expected on Wall Street, so it wasn’t a market-moving surprise. Gold is particularly sensitive to Fed policy...
Inflation, bond yields, monetary policy… that’s all interesting and crucial to understand trends in the gold markets – but, hey, what’s up in politics? A lot has happened recently on this front. In particular, last month, the world was shocked by the chaotic withdrawal...

Credit risk out of China and debt ceiling drama in Washington are driving precious metals markets this week. Gold and silver attracted some significant safe-haven buying as equity markets succumbed to selling.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson gets paid less than Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Each of them is getting less salary than US President Joe Biden’s US$400,000. Why do we want you to know this? 
Portfolio Manager, Tavi Costa, noted that his funds firm, Crescat Capital, believes we are in a secular bull market for gold and silver and because we are now amid a pullback, the time is right to be taking advantage of stocks in the space over time. He showed a slide...

Brace yourselves, gold bulls, as the Fed clears the way for tapering and shifts interest rate liftoff to 2022. You’ve been warned.

Raise the dollar, drop the metals. Under most possible scenarios, things don’t look good for gold, silver, and mining stocks – for the medium-term.
Are investment markets very soon coming to the end of market insanity? Since there is very little sanity left in markets or the in the world economy, we have now reached a point where we must accept madness as sanity, as George Bernard Shaw said: “When the world goes...
As the FOMC meets over the next two days, the markets look to Fed Chairman Powell and ask: "What's it gonna be boy? Yes or no?" And whichever answer Powell provides on Wednesday via his fedlines and press conference will likely determine where precious metal prices...

China’s real estate behemoth Evergrande is now “Notsogrande”.  Not surprisingly, fiat debt is the problem.  The proposed “solution” is likely to be more debt… and more money printing. 
Evergrande. That’s the topic everyone requested me to cover, so I will. But before I do, I would like to emphasize that I’ve been writing about it for months. No, not about Evergrande per se, but about the situation being similar to 2008.

The best performing precious metal for the week was gold, but still off 1.86%. Sibanye Stillwater, which has transformed itself from a South African gold miner to a platinum-group metals giant, branched out its reach this week to enter a joint venture to develop the...
The 3-year cycle in Barrick Gold (GOLD) seems to set critical turning points every third September (2012, 2015, 2018, 2021?). With prices steadily declining for the past 12-months, the odds support a potential bottom in the following days. Perhaps Wednesday's Fed...
The bad news is: there are no real prices of gold and silver available in the World today. It is useless to follow the investment recommendations put forward, all in good faith, by individuals such as Peter Schiff.
Yeah, I know everyone is so certain that inflation is what we will be battling for the foreseeable future. The main reason why many of you are so certain we are battling inflation is because you are seeing prices rise on food and other items for which you shop. But, do...

The declining medium-term outlook for gold, silver, and mining stocks will eat away at the honey pot of US dollar bears. Get ready for bee stings.
Gold has been clobbered lately but a key metallic macro indicator remains in a long-term congestion zone. If it’s going to be cyclical ‘inflation ON’ we’d expect Cu/Au to break through and do what it has not done since a major inflation trade blew out in 2006-2008, and...
