For many years; one of the standard lines of the Corporate media in its anti-precious metals propaganda was that “gold generates no income” (i.e. interest payments) in comparison to the dubious paper currencies of our “fiat currency” monetary system. Of course that feeble argument ignored the fact that (in the real world) our paper currencies were losing value at the rate of roughly 10% per year (the real rate of inflation), meaning that real interest rates on all Western paper were already deeply negative. Then the corrupt central banks – led by the Federal Reserve -- took nominal interest rates to More ››

2:45p ET Saturday, February 28, 2015 Dear Friend of GATA and Gold: The Bank of England was intimately involved with the daily London gold price fixings through the 1980s, long after the demise of the London Gold Pool price-control system, gold researcher and GATA consultant Ronan Manly reports today, adding that documents suggest that the bank was trading gold for its own account in order to help control the price and even boasted of making a profit doing so. Manly also reports that the bank today evades questions about this activity. His commentary is headlined "The Bank of England and the London More ››

"Russia and/or China might be forced to play the gold card" Yesterday In Gold & Silver The gold price did little of anything during the Far East trading session on their Friday---and it got sold down about five bucks the moment that London opened. From there it chopped rather unsteadily higher, with the high tick coming minutes before the London close, which was about 10:55 a.m. EST. From there it got sold down into the 1:30 p.m. COMEX close---and did little after that. The CME Group reported the high and low ticks as $1,219.20 and $1,204.10 in the April contract. Gold More ››

We've noticed an uptick in this meme over time. In various feedbacks, we've noted commentators being questioned regarding their educational background. For instance, someone may make a comment on the 'Net regarding the lack of believability of global warming. A retort may feature the commentator's lack of formal educational background, the implication being that if he or she doesn't have a PhD in the field, then the opinion is uninformed. Likewise, as we have noted in the past, the current ... More ››

China's property problems have turned from a demand-side issue to a supply-side one. A few years ago, as we and others in the alternative media have pointed out at length, Chinese construction was booming even though demand was lacking. This is partially how China ended up with its "ghost cities" – actually empty or nearly empty cities built apparently on speculation. But now, as this article points out, another phase of the rolling bust has occurred: Chinese builders have stopped building. This ... More ››

  Stocks were floundering around most of the day on a weak GDP revision this morning, and a shockingly low Chicago PMI which *could* be an effect, at least in part, of the weather. Stocks are looking a bit lofty here, and volumes are thin. But here comes March, and another month in which the wolves can thin the saving herd, as thin as they may have become. The cash Nasdaq continues to More ››

Today was the usual dull day of market focused on their own navels, surrounded by the flies of the HFT bots. Silver was the bigger story with the first report from the March contract, with an impressive claim of over six million ounces of silver being claimed on the Comex. The Comex silver sees plenty of warehouse action, since CNT is using it as a delivery vehicle into their More ››
