Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Peter Boehringer, leader of the campaign to repatriate Germany’s national gold reserves, today brilliantly dismantles the Bundesbank’s claim yesterday to have accounted for those reserves.
First, Boehringer writes, the Bundesbank has provided not a list of gold bars by producer and […]

For our global investigation how much physical gold central banks have stored at what location and how much is leased out, I decided to submit the local equivalent of a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request at the central bank of Belgium, de Nationale Bank van […]

The Bundesbank recently published the list of all its gold bars on its website in its inaugural report. This is the first time the country has done so. Germany has been in the limelight in recent years after requesting that the New York Fed return its gold. The bank […]

Central banks have been dumping U.S. Treasury bonds because of the debt ceiling problem. The Tea Party will shut down funding if they have their way. This situation illustrates the entire problem. The debt ceiling only ever rises. We will see a rise in taxation […]

Earlier today, the IMF with its usual several year delay, discovered what pretty much everyone else had known for years: that emerging markets have massively overborrowed, according to the IMF to the tune of $3 trillion, most notably in China.
Of course, this is one of the […]

The future direction of the planet is a choice between independent money and the central bankers counter-party paper Ponzi. Gold is independent monetary wealth with incredible wealth value that cannot go broke and over time will progress in value.
Independent monetary wealth is […]

Even Bloomberg Notices that Something is Amiss
As anyone who hasn’t been in a coma knows, assorted central bank interventions have failed to achieve their stated goals over the past several years. A recent article at Bloomberg focuses on their failure to reach their “inflation” targets.

The recent scare that investors may be slowly (or not so slowly) waning in the primary market for US Treasurys is rapidly becoming a distant memory, and after yesterday’s 3 Month bills pricing at 0.000% for the first time ever, today’s strong 3 Year auction should end […]

On Monday, in “Central Banks Now In ‘Dangerous Situation’: ‘You’ve Thrown The Kitchen Sink At It, What’s Next?’“, we said the following about the global fiat confidence game:
Here’s the real danger: the degree to which unconventional monetary policy is effective is in no small part dependent […]

For six years, the world has operated based on faith and hope that Central Banks somehow fixed the issues that caused the 2008 Crisis.
All of the arguments supporting this defied common sense. A 5th grader knows that you cannot solve a debt problem by issuing […]

When both Europe and Japan slipped back into deflation despite trillions in central bank stimulus, it served notice that what developed market central planners are doing simply isn’t working.

This article appeared on Zerohedge today and it struck me as being entirely irrelevant: Central Bank Secrecy – Silence On Gold Storage. Why does it matter if a Central Bank discloses where its gold is held? They don’t allow any independent party inspections and audits so […]

The fiat money system should be branded a “crime against humanity” because of what its unbridled excesses must inevitably lead to – chaos, destitution and war – which is what we are clearly heading towards.
Over the past year or so, the Fed let the idea […]

This confidence in central banks raises a pernicious systemic risk. Do you drive carelessly because your auto is equipped with airbags? Perhaps not. But would you drive more cautiously if you were perched on the front bumper? If even the slightest collision would crush […]

From the movie “Rounders” regarding poker:
“If you can’t spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker.”
Hypothetically speaking the players at the global poker table could be:
The Federal Reserve borrows dollars into existence to feed the […]

The markets are surging this morning based on hype and hope of more QE from Central Banks. Across the board the markets have taken out critical support in the last month, erasing ALL of their post-QE 3 gains.
Abroad, the damage has been even […]

With no real positives to boost markets, important support levels had better hold… or it’s over.
The lines I’m about to show you have to hold, or we’ll test the Aug. 24, 2015, lows.
And if those lows don’t hold, well, say hello […]

Whereas some central banks have become more forthcoming on where they claim their official gold reserves are stored (see my recent blog post ‘Central bank gold at the Bank of England‘), many of the world’s central banks remain secretive in this regard, with some central bank staff […]

It is often reported that governments and central banks have for years leased or sold their gold to bullion banks; therefore, they are unlikely to possess the tons of gold, they are said hold. Also, the bullion banks seem to be under enormous pressure recently. Just […]

It has long been believed that when it comes to interest rates, zero is as low as you can go. Who would choose to keep their money in the bank if they had to pay for the privilege?
But for the people […]

The most intriguing aspect of trading on Thursday was the surge in precious metals while stocks tumbled and the dollar declined modestly.
It’s clear to most objective observers that the global economy is contracting. The […]

Since 2008, the Keynesians running global Central Banks had always suggested that there was no problem too great for them to handle. They’d promised to do “whatever it takes,” to maintain the financial system and print the world back to growth.
Thus far, we’d seen […]

Silver gets little respect, but that is sensible in a world dominated by paper assets and pretend values. Similar to a murder investigation, let’s examine the motive, means and opportunity used to “manage” silver prices.
MOTIVE: The price of silver is important to industrial users, since […]

“People of privilege will always risk their complete destruction rather than surrender any material part of their advantage. Intellectual myopia, often called stupidity, is no doubt a reason. But the privileged also feel that their privileges, however egregious they may seem to others, are a solemn, basic, God-given right. […]

When we summarized yesterday’s very strong 5 Year auction, we previewed today’s 7 year issuance as follows: “assuming no material changes in the demeanor of the market over the next 24 hours, expect tomorrow’s 7Y auction to also proceed without a hitch. In fact, the more the […]
