The pricing on the Comex is being run like […]

Today a legend who was recently asked by the Chinese government to give a speech to government officials in China told King World News that demand for gold from China is “insatiable” and the price of gold will hit $2,000 this year.
John Ing: “The Chinese, who I spoke […]

Last week, we noted the hilarious irony in President Obama’s contention that China was “using its sheer size and muscle to force other countries into subordinate positions.” That of course, is a picture perfect description of US foreign policy and so the statement by the President […]

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 […]

Yes, more Greece, ever more Greece. Well, the focus is still very much there. It’s not the only topic, obviously, China warrants interest too, certainly with things like Tyler Durden quoting Cornerstone Macro as saying China’s true economic growth rate […]

As noted earlier, while tens of thousands of Bloomberg terminal users were twiddling their thumbs during an outage that lasted several hours, China futs crashed.

Just as China was closing for trade and Europe was opening, something previously unseen happened: no, not another another GPIF or Virtu inspired marketwide stop squeeze, those are quite recurring these days. It was virtually every Bloomberg terminal around the globe suddenly going dark.

Last weekend we highlighted a note out of Deutsche Bank where analysts hiked their target on shares of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing. HKEx is running at “full throttle” DB said, thanks to inflows from the mainland (attributable to new regulations in China which allow mutual […]

The most important takeaway from David Nakamura’s detailedWashington Post piece on President Obama and trade policy is that the president’s evolving views have been shaped by arrogance as well as ignorance. Worse economic news can scarcely be imagined, since Congress is gearing up […]

A catchy title this “$5,000 Silver?” don’t you think? Am I crazy? Is this even possible? In who’s lifetime? Ours or our great, great grandchildren long after we are dead and buried? The best way to look at this I believe is to briefly look at […]

Exactly one month ago we wrote that “Japan Ties China As America’s Largest Creditor” when, according to Treasury International Capital in the month of January, China sold just over $5 billion in Treasurys while Japan bought $8 billion in US paper. Fast forward to today when […]

The US dollar has recouped much of the ground lost yesterday in response to the US retail sales report, which while softer than expected was the best in a year. Year-over-year excluding the volatile auto and gas components, retail sales are up a respectable 4.1%, […]

A month ago we warned “Beijing, you have a big problem,” and showed 10 charts to expose the reality hiding behind a stock market rally up over 100% in the last year. Tonight we get confirmation that all is not well – China GDP fell to […]

The panic buying by China’s newly-minted, day trader hordes (who, as a reminder, are unwittingly conducting the greatest experiment in greater fool theory investing in history despite the warnings of China’s securities regulator) took a breather on Tuesday which we think presents as good an opportunity […]

With last fall’s U.S. Congressional elections, the Barack Obama ‘era’ has entered its final phase. Shortly before coming to power, the new U.S. president had sparked a massive uproar when he proclaimed a new ‘Pacific century.’ Since then, roughly two years before the end […]

Almost every day, bank economists are making more positive statements about the outlook for gold prices, and rightly so.“Money printing had almost always resulted in inflation but in today’s excess global production capacity environment and with the oil price having collapsed, […]

It’s Saturday morning, after an extremely turbulent week of relentless “horrible headlines,” market manipulation, and journalistic lows.
