Broken Stocks, Battered Bullion, & Bruised Crude

If a broken window is good for the Keynesian economy, then today's broken market (worse than the 2013 Nasdaq blackout) was certainly good for stocks as exchanges broke left and right, futures volume exploded and S&P almost hit 2,000 all on the back of a 2-week old headline from Japan. Today's market was volatile... everywhere.

Silver and gold were smashed

The End of QE and the Price of Gold

Background

The programme known as Quantitative Easing is due to be halted at the end of October, coinciding with the next meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee which is scheduled for 28/29 October 2014.  Monetary policy plays a big role in gold’s fortunes and so the strategies put in place by the central banks around the world need to be watched very carefully.

The Federal Reserve

St Louis Fed President James Bullard has suggested that tapering could be put on pause as inflation is not running as high as expected. However,

The Better Short: Gold or Silver?

The fundamentals for the precious metals are weak. This has been highlighted in recent weeks by the lack of a major rally in gold and the losses in silver despite a spike in volatility to its highest since 2011. Improving economic data, the tapering of QE, and discussion of when the first rate hike will be have resulted in heavy losses over the past two years in the precious metals, and are to blame for the poor performance in the recent risk off market conditions stemming from the Ebola fears.

These overwhelmingly bearish fundamentals are the reason that we have taken short positions on the precious metals sector and why we intend to continue to do so. However, while both gold and silver offer attractive levels for new shorts, which metal holds the better risk reward dynamics in the current market situation? To answer this we must consider how each metal behaves and performs during both risk off and on conditions, as well as their current technical situations.

Given the recent turmoil in the markets,

Chinese and Indian gold buyers back in market in a big way

Author: Lawrence Williams
Posted: Tuesday , 21 Oct 2014 

LONDON (MINEWEB) - 

What has been particularly strange about the gold market over the past two years is that the stronger the physical demand appearing for gold, the weaker the gold price has tended to get.

What If Deflation Wins?

What If Deflation Wins?

By Hard Assets Alliance Team

Since writing last month that inflation was on the rise, things have taken an abrupt turn. Look at the deflationary actions that have recently taken place:

  • The US dollar has shot up

  • The US bond market has rallied

  • Precious metals prices have collapsed

  • Base metal prices have fallen

  • Stock markets have declined

  • Oil and other commodities have fallen.

Further, just last week the International Monetary Fund cut its global economic growth forecast for the third time this year. Why? It doubts how quickly “rich countries will be able to pull free from high debt and unemployment in the wake of the 2007-2009 global financial crisis.”

Why Murenbeeld Thinks Gold Will Hit $1,335

It seems hard to find someone who is bullish on gold prices these days but this economist thinks $1,335 gold may not be far-fetched. “One of the things that tend to be overlooked…is that the real interest rate in the U.S., particularly at the short end, is going to remain negative right through 2015,” he said. “Furthermore…

The Asian Age of Transformation

The Asian Age of Transformation

By Casey Research

Some believe China and Japan are going to have their day in the sun, while others fear that economic mismanagement will lead to a similar collapse as we’ve seen in the US in 2008. Here are some opinions of prominent investment experts from the just-concluded Casey Research Fall Summit.

John Mauldin, chairman of Mauldin Economics and bestselling author of Endgame and Code Red, thinks we’re in an age of transformation. “Keynesians rule the world, whether we like or not, so we should invest with that reality in mind.”

Italians Demanding Referendum on Euro – Only the People Can Save Europe

Posted on October 14, 2014 by 


As Julius Caesar said: the die is cast. He also said I came, I saw, I conquered (Veni Vidi Vici). The entire idea of the Euro is a total disaster. This is now about a dictatorship in Brussels that has built a political infrastructure which will promote civil war in Europe – not peace and harmony.
