Gold Investment In Germany & The U.K. Surged

While gold demand in the West continues to languish, something has recently motivated renewed interest in the yellow precious metal in Germany and the United Kingdom. Now, when I say “renewed interest”, I am referring to a surge in gold investment by Germans and British that we haven’t seen for quite some time. This big increase in gold investment in Germany and the U.K. over the past year and a half is not from the diehard physical bar and coin investors, rather it is from a source that is even more interesting… it’s coming from investors in the retail Gold […]

Major Gold Market Indicator Shift

One of the major gold market indicators experienced a major shift in 2017. If we look at this gold indicator over the past several years, this recent trend reversal suggests something has fundamentally changed in the gold market… and in a BIG WAY.

McConnell & Ryan Collaborate with Pelosi to Pile Up More Debt

Republican leaders in Congress, with the urging of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, are anxious to raise the federal borrowing limit from $ 19.8 trillion – no strings attached. The only hitch is those pesky conservative voters who were promised restraint by party leaders. GOP establishment hopes to quietly pass a “clean” bill to raise the debt ceiling – a direct betrayal of that voter base – don’t currently enjoy enough support from other Republican members who still consider themselves accountable.

Historic Upside Gold and Silver Run

The Bigger the Base, the Greater the Upside Case. This saying among technical analysts/chartists helps define where we are today in the precious metals – and where we’ll soon be headed. It means that when prices “base” in a relatively narrow sideways range for an extended period, they will at some point break out.

Debt Ceiling Hike to Trigger Future Inflation

The dramatic failure of the U.S. Senate’s last-ditch Obamacare repeal effort leaves Republicans so far without a major legislative win since Donald Trump took office. No healthcare reform. No tax reform. No monetary reform. No budgetary reform. The more things change in Washington… the more they stay the same. Despite an unconventional outsider in the White House, it’s business as usual for entrenched incumbents of both parties.

Since March, the Treasury Department has been relying on “extraordinary measures” to pay […]
