Why Gold Is Headed Much Higher

gold-eagle.com / By Michael Pento / November 24, 2014

What really drives the price of gold? Some say it’s a fear gauge. Others prefer to look at the demand coming from the Indian wedding season. But the silliest of all conclusions to reach is that the dollar price of gold should be determined solely by […]

What causes the moves in the U.S. dollar?

news.goldseek.com / Arkadiusz Sieron / 24 November 2014

Understanding the relationship between the U.S. dollar and gold is necessary to successfully invest in gold. However, it is not sufficient, because changes in the USD exchange rates cannot be analyzed outside the economic context: gold, although not officially money, is traded like a currency. Therefore, […]

Central Banks: When We Succeed, We Fail

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / By CHARLES HUGH SMITH / NOVEMBER 23, 2014

2. Weaken the currency […]

Not much market action yesterday. So, let us turn to what is bound to be the funniest… and scariest… story in the financial world.

deviantinvestor.com / by Gary Christenson / November 20, 2014

From John Mauldin:

“For a central banker, deflation is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Death, Famine, Disease, and Deflation. It is helpful to understand that, before a person is allowed to join the staff or board of a central bank, he or […]

Fed Downplays Inflation Worries

traderdannorcini.blogspot.com / Dan Norcini / Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Going over these FOMC statements is akin to the ancient art of divining the future by the examination of animal entrails. I can see the conversation:

Demetrius: “I see what appears to be a twisted piece of gut. That is a sign from the gods […]

FOMC Minutes: Centrists Remain In Control

marctomarket.com / by Marc Chandler / November 19, 2014

The FOMC minutes were not very surprising. The FOMC is not in any hurry to raise interest rates before the middle of next year at the earliest. The FOMC statement did not drop the “considerable period” phraseology to describe the time between the end of […]

Splintering

blog.milesfranklin.com / Andrew Hoffman / November 19th, 2014

According to this chart, the Fed’s favorite “inflation barometer” – the “five-year forward five-year inflation expectations index” – has fallen to its lowest level since the 2008 financial crisis; you know, when oil was $40/bbl. and no one bought anything, as a cumulative “deer in headlights” syndrome […]

The Abenomics Death Spiral

gold-eagle.com / Peter Schiff / November 19, 2014

As Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe has turned his country into a petri dish of Keynesian ideas, the trajectory of Japan’s economy has much to teach us about the wisdom of those policies. And although the warning sirens are blasting at the highest volumes imaginable, few […]

The Only Thing More Bullish Than Inflation Is….

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 11/19/2014 13:00

Deflation. And not just deflation, but a deflationary bust! At least, such is the goal seeked logic of Cornerstone Marco, which has released a bullish (no really) note titled the Coming Deflationary Boom in the U.S.

In it the authors throw in the towel on the most […]

Correction? What Correction?

mauldineconomics.com / BY TONY SAGAMI / NOVEMBER 18, 2014

Global Irrational Exuberance Enters a New Phase

mises.org / Brendan Brown / NOVEMBER 19, 2014

The mega inflation in college tuition: Since 1985 college tuition costs have soared by 538 percent. No surprise that total student debt is now over $1.22 trillion.

mybudget360.com / by mybudget360 / November 17, 2014

There was a time when college tuition was reasonably priced in the United States. In fact, college was downright cheap. These were the days when people worked a few hours a week at minimum wage jobs and were able to pay off their tuition on a semester […]
