Dow Jones Tanks; Silver Market Price Bottoming

During the last 90 minutes of trading on Wednesday, the Dow Jones Index tanked by 400 points. Supposedly, the steep selloff had something to do with the release of the Fed minutes. However, today, the market has reversed once again and is up by 200 points. Unfortunately for mainstream investors, it doesn’t matter what the Fed or Wall Street have to say; the broader markets will continue to fall precipitously over the next few years. Interestingly, as the indicators point to extreme leverage in the markets, the opposite is true for the silver price. In my newest YouTube video, I […]

Own Physical Gold and Silver: Especially When Prices Are Rigged Against You

Banks rig markets and government regulators aren’t taking it too seriously. In fact, central bankers at the Federal Reserve, the primary regulator for banks, are the biggest market manipulators of all. With forces like that allied against precious metals and free markets, it is no wonder the past several years have frustrated gold bugs. They have been continually punished for doing the right thing. It’s been excruciating. Yet the wisdom behind holding physical metals is still sound. Crooked markets cannot last forever. Banks and traders are undermining confidence each time their cheating makes the headlines. If you are a believer […]

5 Big Drivers of Higher Inflation Rates Ahead

Investors got lulled into a state of inflation complacency.  Persistently low official inflation rates in recent years depressed bond yields along with risk premiums on all financial assets. That’s changing in 2018. Five drivers of higher inflation rates are now starting to kick in. Inflation Driver #1: Rising CPI The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a notoriously flawed measure of inflation.  It tends to understate real-world price increases. Nevertheless, CPI is the most widely followed measure of inflation.  When it moves up, so do inflation expectations by investors. Insert Junk silver tile – verify the premiums displayed. On February 13th, […]

U.S. Public Debt Surges By $175 Billion In One Day

After the U.S. Government passed the new budget and debt increase, with the President’s signature and blessing, happy days are here again. Or are they? As long as the U.S. Government can add debt, then the Global Financial and Economic Ponzi Scheme can continue a bit longer. However, the days of adding one Dollar of debt to increase the GDP by two-three Dollars are gone forever. Now, we are adding three-four Dollars of debt to create an additional Dollar in GDP. This monetary hocus-pocus isn’t sustainable. Well, it didn’t take long for the U.S. Government to increase the total debt […]

Market Correction Update & Silver Price Trend

While the Dow Jones Index and broader markets are recovering from their lows set on Friday, the worst is still yet to come. Investors need to realize that stock market indexes don’t fall in a straight line. Also, there is also the possibility that the Dow Jones Index could surpass its previous high of 26,600 points. Only time will tell. However, the leverage, margin and insane valuations in the markets are still in way out of whack. Just because the Dow Jones Index has added 1,200 points from its lows in early Friday trading, it is still 2,000 points below […]

Investors are currently trying to determine what Bitcoin represents and what role it will play relative to precious metals. With that in mind let’s have a look at what Bitcoin is now, what it might become later, and also point out what it will never be. Here Is […]

Ripple’s Tulip Bubble

Unfortunately for crypto investors “HODLING” onto Ripple, their huge gains have been wiped out in just the past few weeks. While Ripple’s price surged to massive percentage gains in a short period, it came down just as fast. Unbelievably, Ripple’s price surged from less than a penny in March 2017 to a peak of $ 2.81 on Jan 1st, 2018. Ripple’s stunning price increase would have made investors during Holland’s 17th Century Tulip Bubble, quite envious.
