Lynette Zang joins us today to explain how the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will worsen everything. Furthermore, we talk about the Feds balance sheet and whether or not a fed pivot will make the price of Gold and Silver go higher.

Last week's trading saw Gold forming its low in Monday's session, here doing so with the tag of the 1740.20 figure. From there, strength was seen into late-week, with the metal pushing up to a Thursday high of 1778.80 - before backing off the same into the weekly close.
Official history is not necessarily truthful history. Perhaps no place is more congruent with that than Africa. Not to their fault, most people tend to have a wildly superficial understanding of African history. Press narratives, imagery, and films have largely...
Asleep indeed is our once mighty Gold. Fortunately, when there's not a lot to  say, we can always look at pretty pictures, for each is worth a thousand words,  (if not in due course thousands to one's wealth). To wit:

Long term – on SELL signal. Short term – on mixed signals. Gold sector cycle is UP. We are now holding trading positions as no core positions should be held during a long term sell signal.

The mid-tier and junior gold-miners’ stocks in their sector’s sweet spot for upside potential have been clubbed like baby seals since mid-April.  Massive gold-futures dumping erupted as the US dollar shot parabolic on the most-extreme hawkish Fed pivot ever, crushing...
So much for “inflation reduction.” Just a few days after signing Green New Deal legislation, rebranded as the Inflation Reduction Act, President Joe Biden has moved to completely undo its core promise by pumping hundreds of billions of dollars into another new bailout...
As the Federal Reserve continues to raise interest rates, the impact is being increasingly felt in the housing market. And in today's video, Dave Kranzler of Investment Research Dynamics goes through some of the data and trends that have emerged that show the weakness...

The latest S&P Global Flash US Composite PMI doesn’t bode well for the U.S. economy. The headline Flash US PMI Composite Output Index declined from 47.7 in July to 45 in August, as the chart below shows. It was the second successive monthly decrease in total...
On August 15, 1971, Richard Nixon announced that the US dollar (USD) would no longer be redeemable in gold. This was supposed to be temporary. And yet, 51 years later, here we are. The gold standard was gradually destroyed in the twentieth century. Now people are...

One reason the history of markets is fascinating is that we can glean clues about the future. History does not always repeat itself, but it often rhymes. For precious metals, the last six years lack a strong comparison.

Early this month, the S&P500 P/E ratio was 52% higher than its modern era average. By this valuation, the market is OVERVALUED. To fall back to the modern era average, the S&P500 would need to plunge  to around $2,200.
As the Dow tumbled 600 points yesterday, GDX and key gold stocks closed slightly higher. Is this the sign of a turn for the miners… a repeat of January to March 2022, when the US stock market crashes and gold stocks soar?
With the USD losing influence, it would be the understatement of the year to say that we live in interesting times, for we certainly do. But despite the inevitable attacks of appearing sensational, un-American or just plain cynical, I feel a more appropriate phrase...
According to the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the institution that dates the peaks and troughs of the business cycles:
People fighting for liberty, limited government, and honest money may have an unlikely ally according to Tom Luongo of the Gold, Goats N Guns blog. He recognizes a split in the monolithic powers running the world. Commercial banks may not be on board with the effort to...
Despite all the fanfare and cheerleading you hear in the MSFM, the recent bounce in equity prices has just been a rather pedestrian bear market rally. Bull markets are not engendered by a faltering global economy, very high rates of inflation and the most hawkish...

The best performing precious metal for the week was gold, but still off 3.03%, with the strong surge in the U.S. dollar. Aya Gold & Silver released its first quarter production and financials this week.
Call it a recession or anything else you prefer, but the bottom line is that the prosperity of decades past is not coming back. Thinking expansively about the economy is no longer part of the American mindset, since, as should be perfectly clear to everyone by now, the...
It all goes down in the same heap of rubble — zombie corporations and the junk bonds that are their sole life support and, piled on top, some of the banksters that funded them. Like a zombie apocalypse, it spreads around the world, taking out the weakest first but then...
Adam Taggart from Wealthion joins the show to talk about when we can expect the fed to pivot and what this would mean for the Gold & Silver Market. We also discuss the latest unemployment news, rate hikes, and more.
Precious metals markets are giving up ground this week as investors react to the latest musings from the Federal Reserve. On Wednesday, the Fed released the minutes from its latest policy meeting. Officials acknowledged some of the warning signs of a weakening economy...
Can a money printer actually lose money? 100% yes. In fact, the Federal Reserve is now the Federal Reverse, and now has over $1 TRILLION in unrealized losses on its balance sheet.

This was a slow week.  It’s difficult writing something interesting about mostly nothing, but I’ll give it my best shot. Nothing much happened with the Dow Jones this week; down by 54.31 from last Friday’s close.  A decline barely visible in the BEV chart below.  That’...
Last week's trading saw Gold forming its high in Monday's session, here doing so with the tag of the 1818.90 figure. From there, a sharp decline was seen into late-week, with the metal dropping all the way down to a Friday low of 1759.10 - also ending both the day and...
