Gold’s weekly parabolic trend a week ago flipped from Long to Short. We continue to look for Gold to work lower, protected more broadly by the 2020-1936 structural support zone. 

Coming up in a moment is the first part of a two-part interview with monetary and constitutional expert Edwin Vieira. Edwin breaks down the incredible story of how America went from sound money system to a centrally planned government money system. You’ll want to...

This week on Thursday and Friday, the Dow Jones in its BEV chart below made its 20th & 21st BEV Zero of the rally.  A rally that began last November when it closed in scoring position, a close above its -5% line, and the Dow Jones has stayed there since.

Our proprietary cycle indicator is DOWN. Current data suggests overall lower gold prices. Current data supports an overall higher dollar. Our ratio is on sell signal.

According to the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, prices rose by 3.1 percent over the last year. Based on my own experience at my local shopping center, that seems low.

We are seeing something in the gold market that we haven't seen in 5 years, and the last time it happened, gold climbed from $1,167 to $2,090 - a near doubling - in less than two years.

Here are today's videos and charts.

Last weekend we noted that the US stock market was due for a correction. And boy did it get one (sarcasm alert)! All of 1.5% before Nvidia’s in the bag results re-rallied the risk ‘on’ contingent and thus, the stock market. With most of the indexes making new highs...

Could restoring a depleted stash of critical minerals help to bolster security of supply, while also assisting in the energy transition? US recognition of the importance of critical minerals goes back over 100 years.

The sun may be setting on the dollar’s global hegemony. In August 2005, a little-known financial analyst named Richard Bove issued an eight-page report for Punk, Ziegel, and Company, a boutique investment bank based in New York City.

Gold trended higher from 2016 to 2020 and has consolidated around its all-time highs. However, it is not yet in a secular bull market because it is struggling to outperform the 60/40 conventional investment portfolio.

Getting more money is what investing is all about. Gold is the money of kings (and gold bugs!). It’s the greatest money, and all investors should want more.

This week for Ask an Economist, I have a question from Wilson. Wilson rightly notes the Federal Reserve targets an inflation rate of 2% and wants to know why. Why target increasing prices?

Reports on the death of the present cycle of politically motivated monetary easing, in the words of Mark Twain, grossly exaggerated. Contemporary market analyses are full of how the Fed and ECB are dialing back on previous hints of Spring 2024 rate cuts. In tune...

The Federal Reserve is the engine that powers one of the biggest, most powerful governments in history. In this episode of the Money Metals' Midweek Memo, host Mike Maharrey explains how and why the Fed enables an ever-growing federal government. 

Thomas Parilla, President of Parilla Investment Group, joins the show to discuss the impact of the recent Fed meeting on the markets.

The euphoria with the fourth quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figure makes no sense. The headline champions say that real GDP increased at an annual rate of 3.3% in the fourth quarter of 2023, according to the Bureau of Economic Statistics (BES).

I am writing this from home. But I spent five of the last six months of the year on the road. Most of that was overseas. In Reflections last year, I wrote about the gruelingness (yes, that’s a word coined as of right now) of it. So I won’t repeat that, but I’ll just...

There was a sharp selloff in gold and silver last week following the latest government CPI report. Gold dropped below $2,000 per ounce for the first time in months, while silver traded down to the $22 level.

All the precious metals rose this week, except for gold. Palladium rose 4.17% and silver gained 3.90%. Barrick Gold over the weekend said that the Nevada Gold Mines is "strongly positioned for growth."

Given how gold price is behaving recently, I’d like to start today’s analysis with the chart featuring the price of the yellow metal.

I have argued that despite cranking up interest rates and running some assets off its balance sheet, the Federal Reserve has not done enough to beat inflation.

The US stock market is in need of a correction. Now, will it get one? On the CPI down day I looked at the market and decided to leave well enough alone because of course they were going to gun it to punish anyone shorting that down day on supposedly bad news (...

The U.S. federal government published a December deficit of $129 billion, up 52% from the previous year. The private sector recession is clear as expenses continue to rise while tax receipts decline. If we look at the period between October and December 2023, the...

Gold & Silver tested $2000 and $22 last week and rebounded to close the week. The miners became very oversold and rebounded from support mid-week.
