Following one of the most “news-free” weekends in memory, I returned home from the gym this morning with, for one of the few times ever, no specific topic to highlight. Not that I wouldn’t have come up with something, as I always do. However, nothing stood […]

I am often asked, “Does Ice-Nine put gold at risk of lockdown or confiscation?”
First, Ice-Nine is a phrase borrowed from author, Kurt Vonnegut. Vonnegut wrote a book in the early 1960s called Cat’s Cradle, and it’s a doomsday scenario.

The market “response” to the Italian referendum – unquestionably, a political, financial, and economic “nuclear bomb” – was as hideously rigged as anything I’ve ever seen. And trust me, the strafing is just starting, given this morning’s news that not only is Bank Monte dei Paschi […]

Physical gold is a “hedge against governments,” a “long-term position” and is still “on a buy signal” in the longer-term according to Dominic Frisby writing in the UK’s best selling financial publication Money Week this week.

There is a total misunderstanding of the role of gold and why it is so critical to own physical gold. Gold should not be bought or sold based on rumours or events. In connection with the US election, gold moved for totally the wrong reasons.
