About the only items that were UP in Friday were gold and bonds. Everything else was down sharply, including the Dow Jones average which fell by nearly 300 points. Is this just a simple, one day selloff or is something larger afoot? Our pal Denver Dave has some excellent analysis here and I strongly urge you to take the time to read this post. read more More ››

"It's been a struggle for the President's Working Group on Financial Markets" Yesterday In Gold & Silver The gold price didn't do much of anything until noon in Hong Kong on their Friday---and then it rallied about ten bucks, with the high of the day coming shortly before 11:30 a.m. in London trading.

Throughout this book, we will generally address specific cultures, to some extent reinforcing the idea that cultures are the natural order of humanity. We will do this because the mass of humanity has indeed organized itself in this way and because it is far more convenient for our purpose of analysis. Nonetheless, it is important to be clear about the fact that culture is not simply a good or preferable thing – culture is also limitation. Once people conceive of themselves as "an Armenian," as ...

MEMPHIS, TN—In a momentous sequence of events, an area man announced Thursday that libertarianism is "totally out of touch with common people" while simultaneously endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. This logic-bending feat was performed by college student Justin Snyder. He went on to claim that libertarians ignore the "painfully obvious" signs that their beliefs are misguided, all the while wearing a "Ready for Hillary" shirt. Since the startling event, scientists are ... More ››

Gold and silver ended the week pretty much revolving around the same trading ranges. I might say that gold is coiling for a move, but I really don't quite feel it in the charts or the action on the tape. The pricing on the Comex is being run like a bucket shop, so using finely tuned technical indicators is probably fruitless. At some point this gold pool will break down. When that will be I More ››

Stocks gave up about half of the drifting higher advance of the prior nine days. China took actions to dampen the very obvious equity bubble in their markets. Their dilemma is the same as most areas: they wish to stimulate growth, without creating dangerous asset bubbles. Almost everyone is failing at this, because the plutocrats and oligarchs keep stimulating through the top down financial More ››

When it comes to investing in gold, for the most part, the U.S. Gold Market is completely insane. I am not blaming Americans, as they have been totally brainwashed by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve into believing that gold is something you wear, not invest in. This is certainly proven by the data shown […] More ››

Jim, A very supportive article on gold and silver by Stewart Thompson. I've followed him for some time and he's not an impetuous sort of guy, but rather thoughtful and reflective; taking charts into account… but not being led by the nose by them. Buy gold equities now, he says, and physical will continue its... The post Jim's Mailbox appeared first on Jim Sinclair's Mineset. More ››

From Bloomberg comes word that credit managers for American companies are getting a little worried about debts going unpaid somewhere down the line, that is, when things might not be so hunky dory in the U.S. and global economy and the Fed is raising rates.
