Gold: Will Goyal Make It Royal?


Posted by Stewart Thomson - Graceland Updates

on Tuesday, 19 June 2018 10:54

Stewart Thomson's 25 point summary of what is happening in the US Dollar, the US Stock market, Central Banks & Interest Rates, Treasury Bonds, Gold Stocks Gold.

 Most importantly if Piyush Goyal should take charge of the Indian finance ministry on a permanent basis "he will likely be the catalyst that launches a massive and sustained rise in Indian gold demand. Demand that should be enough to drive gold in an Elliott C wave advance to at least $1650, and probably $2000!" - R. Zurrer for Money Talks

2.   Central banks around the world are ramping up their tightening.  Back in 2013-2014 when I predicted quantitative tightening and relentless rate hikes were imminent, almost nobody believed me.  

3.   I promised that this tightening cycle would be like no other because of the enormous size of the QE money balls in Japan, Europe, and America.  The tightening action is moving the money balls out of the deflationary government bonds asset class and into the inflationary fractional reserve banking system.

4.   Powell just raised rates again and is poised to launch another increase in quantitative tightening.  He’s also beginning to change the spread between the Fed funds rate and the excess reserves rate that banks get paid to keep money at the Fed.  Going forward, I expect him to put much more pressure on banks to move money out of the Fed.  This is highly inflationary action.

Major Turnaround in Crude Oil’s Price


Posted by Nadia Simmons

on Tuesday, 19 June 2018 08:13

Crude oil’s Friday’s huge daily decline was not followed by yet another daily slide, but by a profound reversal. The price has surely turned by 180 degrees, but can we say the same thing about the outlook for the following days?

No. The volume doesn’t support this outcome and as you’ve seen in the previous several days, indications and confirmations from volume are very important. In fact, the low volume was one of the key reasons that made us open the short position at $66.78 on Wednesday.

We wrote it many times before and we’re going to write it again – a reversal without significant volume does not indicate what it should. It doesn’t show a fierce battle that was won by one side on a decisive manner. It shows that there was a pause that looks like a reversal, but really isn’t one and definitely doesn’t have one’s implications.

Let’s take a look at yesterday’s price move and the corresponding volume level.

1

The volume was higher than what we saw during Friday’s decline, but it’s still low compared to what we saw previously this month. Compared to the last few days, the volume was average and compared to the past month, the volume was low. It was definitely not high. Therefore, there are no bullish implications of yesterday’s session, and even if they are, they are very insignificant.

How a Wild Fox Helped Make One of the Greatest Silver Discoveries in History

4 Lessons in Mining Never To Be Forgotten - R. Zurrer for Money Talks

The histories of North America’s rushes for gold and silver are filled with outrageous stories and larger-than-life characters. And here’s one you haven’t heard before: A massive silver rush, one that was started by a wild fox.

It’s an incredible tale ripped from the pages from history. But it holds lessons for today’s investors.

Let me tell you the tale, and you be the judge. It’s the story of how silver was discovered in Canada.

What Happened After the Gold Miners Struck It Rich and/or Went Home Busted

The story begins after the fabled gold rush in the Cariboo, when the gold miners struck it rich, went home busted, or both.

There’s some dispute about what happened next. But one fact everyone can agree on is that Canada’s big silver deposits weren’t discovered until 1903.

That’s when Fred LaRose, a blacksmith working at his forge in the far reaches of Northern Ontario, was being continually bothered by a fox.

Foxes aren’t rare in that part of Canada — they’re about as common as weasels, but with big fluffy tails and better publicists. Usually, though, foxes are smart enough to stay away from people. This darned fox kept coming close — too close.

Fred’s short temper flared hotter than the iron he was working … now he could see the fox’s beady eyes staring at him from a bush. He turned and hurled his hammer at the critter. He missed the fox and went to retrieve his hammer. Behind the bushes, he found his hammer alright. But he also found a glittering vein of ore thrusting right through the surface of the rock.

Fred didn’t know it was silver at first. He showed a sample to the owner of the Matabanick Hotel in Haileybury, telling him that the rock seemed to contain “some kind of damned metal.” The hotel owner then showed the rock to T.W. Gibson, the director of Canada’s Bureau of Mines. Gibson’s conclusion: The rock contained niccolite (nickel-rich ore).

As often happens in these stories, the experts were wrong.

Still, by 1903, nickel was worth something. So, Gibson forwarded the sample to Ontario’s official geologist, Willet Green Miller, who passed it along to Ontario’s assayer, A.G. Burrows. Burrows looked at the rock and pronounced it silver.

Miller trucked on out to Fred’s camp, saw that there were indeed big veins of ore and chunks of metal, just lying scattered around! It was promising enough that he came back with two assistants to do a full geological survey.

Miller wrote in his report of “pieces of native silver as big as stove lids or cannon balls lying on the ground, as well as cobalt bloom and niccolite.”

The cobalt captured his fancy. So, near the ore deposit, by the railroad line on the shore of Long Lake, he set up a sign reading: “Cobalt Station.”

And that’s how Canada’s silver town became known as Cobalt Station. Where the miner’s pick-ax struck, Cobalt Station sprang into existence out of the wilderness.

Economic Outlook

Crash & Burn & the Sixth Wave


Posted by Martin Armstrong - Armstrong Economics

on Tuesday, 19 June 2018 07:08

Sixth-WaveECM

Martin Armstrong answers a question on what the timing and nature of the oncoming "Crash & Burn" looks like - R Zurrer for Money Talks

QUESTION: Martin, as all members do, I really do thank you and appreciate you for your knowledge and insight. I am a business owner – Real Water and do approximately $10 million in annual sales right now. As a concerned citizen, I have also run for political office and was elected to the Nevada State Assembly in 2015. With Republican control, our legislature pushed through the largest tax increase in our State’s history in the name of more money for education (I led the opposition against the tax, but failed in preventing it). Of course, our latest school ratings came out and we are still ranked at the bottom – 50th. More government is NOT the solution!

I completely understand we are headed for a financial crash and burn. You have frequently stated that the only reason you are doing what you are doing is for your posterity. Other than personal preparation, extra food, don’t be in bonds, etc., what do you believe is the most beneficial thing we can do to help our country come out of the crash and burn with more freedom and limited government (like our Founders so emphatically intended) as opposed to the other potential of totalitarianism that you frequently warn us about? What is the most effective way to rally the troops so to say to help push our civilization in the proper direction?

To an elevated lifestyle,

ANSWER: The Government always thinks that throwing more money at something make it better. I have NEVER seen where that has EVER corrected any such trend. The problem lies in the total mismanagement. Governments are simply incapable of operating even a bubblegum machine. They completely fail to understand the economy, human nature, or society as a whole. The only way to actually correct such a problem is to privatize. That installs actual management and employees must actually perform. Government unions demand benefits and they negotiate with themselves. This is why the entire socialist agenda is collapsing.

I had a friend who was a postmaster. He had to tell an employee he would be checking on them a day before to ensure they were doing their job. The union made them provide notice so the employee would not actually be caught doing anything. This is how government unions have destroyed themselves and society. This is what we are headed into a crash and burn because governments do not respect the people and assume we are an endless supply of revenue.

All government agencies should be privatized and then the services they provide would actually work. Going to the New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles was a case study in how not to run a government. The people were nasty, you would wait in line and they would be having a conversation with the next employee about what they would do after work and actually make you wait even 5 minutes while they did this right in front of your face. The attitude was WTF do you want now. Just absolutely nasty and hostile. No supervision and nobody even forces them to actually work. Always a horrible experience – not just one time. Ask a question and you NEVER got a straight or correct answer.

It is a structural management problem. There is no accountability and you can look at any government agency and you will see the same pattern. Increase the budget and there is NEVER any actually change. They cannot improve because there is a lack of management ability.

What does the Crash & Burn look like? It all depends upon how long we have to wait to achieve it. If we get the start of a Crash & Burn in 2021, then there is real hope of a soft-landing. If we are looking at stalling and refusing to change as taxes continue to rise, we will see that last wave of totalitarianism and then what comes AFTER 2032 is a very hard landing. That type of decline historically results in civil war and/or revolution.

All I can offer is what has happened before historically. My personal opinion would be just a guess and that is not what clients want to hear. So the sooner the better and the longer this is stalled the worse it gets.

This hostile attack against Trump is symbolic of the bureaucracy fighting to keep its power. They think if they can get Trump out of office, they will return it back to normal with a career politician. They are seriously wrong for the people voted for Trump because they are fed up with the system as is. This was not a personal popularity contest that Trump won. It is the rising tension of the people. There is not going back. This can only lead to a confrontation between the left and right. Choose where you want to like based upon the political orientation of that area. The area I live in was conservative which voted overwhelmingly for Trump. That is a bit safer than a left area for then they ultimate come after you and see you are the problem why things are not going their way.
