Dear Mark (if I may):
While your commentary today, “True Gold Bugs Care about Value, Not Price” —
— was excellent for noting that central bank interventions increasingly are determining asset prices, you were in error when you asserted that gold’s value “appears to […]

Central banks will disagree;
Keynesian economists probably disagree;
Too-Big-To-Fail banks don’t care;
But I think the following is generally accurate regarding the devolution of gold and silver money.
IN THE BEGINNING: Gold and silver coins were used as real money for several thousand years. Gold and […]

For the first half an hour after China opened, things looked bleak: after opening down 5%, the Shanghai Composite staged a quick relief rally, then tumbled again. And then, just around 10pm Eastern, we saw a coordinated central bank intervention stepping in to give the […]

The Big Bad Bear Case
My aim with this article is to outline, with facts, large global structural issues that I believe everyone, bulls and bears alike, should be fully aware of. While some of this discussion may rattle the cage a bit you will hopefully find […]

The modern financial animal is wont to assume that he or she lives in an age of science. Just peruse the economic research that the great central banks produce. Even the titles of the papers are incomprehensible. Surely, the wit of […]

There is a myth prevalent today that the gold price always falls when interest rates rise.
The logic is that when interest rates rise it is more expensive to hold gold, which just sits there not earning anything. And since markets discount future expectations, gold […]

Many investors still view gold as a safe-haven investment, but there remains much confusion regarding the extent to which the gold market is vulnerable to manipulation through short-term rigged market trades, and long-arm central bank interventions. First, much of the gold that is being sold as […]

There has been a lot of chatter in recent days about the plunge in commodity prices—–capped off by this week’s slide of the Bloomberg commodity index to levels not seen since 2002. That epochal development is captured in the chart below, but most of the […]

On the heels of China telling the world that they only have 1,658 tonnes of gold, Andrew Maguire, Egon von Greyerz and Stephen Leeb told King World News that today’s release by China is a “joke” and that the announcement was “ludicrous,” which is a polite way of calling it […]

The cycle of hyperinflation is already upon us. It was set in motion long ago.
We are in the ultimate conundrum. Politically, the US Government, Treasury, and Central Banks must satisfy – pay for – unfunded liabilities and promises.
But the “money” is is simply […]

Another One-Hit Wonder
In spite of counterproductive attempts by the Fed and Central Banks to foster price inflation, debt overhang has stymied those efforts, at least in regards to consumer prices and import/export prices.
Last month, following a surge in gasoline prices, import and export prices […]

Only a few people care whether central banking persists, and they’re the ones who profit from it. In some cases they profit enormously. The average Joe or Jill doesn’t know about central banks and doesn’t care to know. To the ones at the top of the […]

The seriousness of the global economic crisis cannot be underestimated. Central banks and their respective governments have gone into overdrive in recent months in an effort to maintain stability within the system. But as noted by one of the world’s most successful strategic investment managers, the […]

Greece has been in the news with the left socialist Syriza Party caving (predictable) to the IMF’s economic terrorism, resulting in bank runs and capital controls.
Echoing the previous two bail outs back to 09 and 10, the new “plan” will undoubtedly result in more collateral […]

Markets are beginning to signal that policy makers are losing control. Many second-order-effects of the unprecedented and experimental global actions taken since the 2008 crisis are beginning to manifest. There are always causes and effects that develop; but they do so […]

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Central banks aren’t the only ones with potentially a lot of money to deploy trading gold, Perth Mint analyst Bron Suchecki writes tonight, adding that some major investment houses lately have expressed negative sentiment about the monetary metal.
While Suchecki acknowledges that […]

Today’s market battle will be between those (central banks) “hoping” that a Greek deal over the weekend is finally imminent (which on one hand looks possible after a major backpeddling by Tsipras – who may never have wanted to win the Greferendum in the first […]

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Neither Bloomberg News columnist Barry Ritholtz nor his editor, Mark Berley, has responded to your secretary/treasurer’s e-mail to them of last Wednesday, in response to Ritholtz’s latest commentary disparaging gold’s price performance, asking them to examine the documentation of surreptitious intervention […]

Measuring wealth with an ever-expanding ruler makes for a carnival illusion of safety, suspended in a vast, uneven web of complexity.
The longer society and culture remain detached from the nature of true wealth, the more fragile we become to ‘normal’ risk.
Complexity is not […]
