    Olivier Garrett: Buying Gold & Silver

    Precious metals and the Hard Assets Alliance
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, July 12, 2015, 4:34 PM


    With financial markets becoming increasingly volatile (the Shanghai Composite's loss of over $2 trillion in the past month, anyone?), along with growing global economic instability and currency risks, we think it time to reiterate more loudly our core belief that everyone should own some precious metals.

    Commissioner Bart Chilton: Price Discovery In The Commodities Markets

    How "free and fair" is it?
    by Adam Taggart

    Saturday, March 7, 2015, 8:54 PM


    In theory, regulation is supposed to set and enforce the rules of the game that market participants play by, in order to ensure that price discovery remains efficient, effective — and most important — fair.

    In practice, there's plenty of debate to be had on how successful our regulators are in effecting their mission. And one investment class in particular, commodities, frequently comes under criticism for questionable price action.

    So, this week we talk with Bart Chilton, former Commissioner of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), about price discovery within the commodity markets, and whether investors can have confidence in the "fairness" of the current system.

    Mike Maloney: The Coming Wealth Transfer

    There's nowhere to hide (except in hard assets)
    by Adam Taggart

    Saturday, December 6, 2014, 8:34 PM


    History may not repeat but it sure does rhyme. Mike Maloney has studied monetary and financial breakdowns  throughout history and concludes that there's nothing new or different happening this time, except its global and far more massive than any other time in history.

    Worse, there are echoes of 1911 where a series of diplomatic blunders and national pride and intransigence combined to create the still largely inexplicable start to WW I.  

    Chris Martenson: Well it’s global this time, right? This is — there’s nowhere to hide. (…)  What has happened when we’ve tried to print our way to prosperity before? What has happen? Why has it happened and what have been the consequences always been?

    Mike Maloney: Whenever you try to print your way to prosperity it transfers well from the masses to the few. The few being the people running the game and then also the hucksters that are very nimble, the con artists and so on. You see these people get rich during the Weimar Hyperinflation. There were quite a few of these fancy salespeople that got rich; they didn’t stay rich once things stabilized again.

    But it creates such a topsy turvy world that the normal person that does not know how to operate under these weird economic conditions cannot possibly keep up with things and wealth is transferred away from those people to the people that are very good at observing what’s going on that second and adjusting to it. But the one thing that I see as a constant throughout history is that gold and silver eventually do an accounting of all this — the financial — you know financial finessing that the governments are doing.

    And when it does that it — there is a transfer of wealth to the people that own gold and silver. And so — it’s very rare moments in history. This does not happen often. But it’s a great opportunity and I’ve just — you know if you look at gold right now the public’s opinion of gold is quite low because it’s been going down for three years.

    But if you look at it in a longer timeframe and I started investing in gold in 2002 and by early 2003 I started investing in silver and if you look at it from the year 2000 it’s still the best performing of the assets. It’s still out performed the Dow and S&P and real estate.

    And I will continue, myself, to accumulate on the way down I see this as an opportunity. And if it goes lower than it is right now, you know nobody has a perfect crystal ball. So it may have already put in its lows. But I just accumulate every single month and I will continue doing that because I see that as the only sure thing in this crazy world of currency creation.

    Now That’s A Nice Bottom

    Keeping an eye on gold, silver, oil, and copper prices
    by Chris Martenson

    Tuesday, December 2, 2014, 2:07 AM


      ~ Gold and silver race up off the lows

    The failure of the Swiss referendum to repatriate gold was somehow used as the catalyst to hammer gold, silver, oil, and copper…each of them a signature bell-weather for economic activity.

    I was ready to write this piece titled "Deflation Wins!"  but that would have been the on-line equivalent of "Dewey Wins!"  because just as Dewey actually lost to Truman, each of the four substances listed bounced back hard after their initial pummeling.

    Eric Sprott: Global Gold Demand Is Overwhelming Supply

    Setting the stage for much higher prices ahead
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, November 16, 2014, 4:11 PM


    Precious metals have had an especially tough go of it over the past month. Both gold and silver are back in price territory last seen in 2010.

    Eric Sprott returns to the program to discuss the facts as we know them in this market, and what's likely to happen from here. Specifically, he explains the tremendous imbalance currently seen between global supply and demand for precious metals. In his view, prices will have to correct upwards — prodigiously — to bring the two back in alignment.

    The Turn May Be At Hand

    Possibly within the next 2 months
    by Chris Martenson

    Tuesday, November 4, 2014, 4:35 AM


    What this world desperately needs is a long term plan to deal with its shrinking net-energy-per-capita ratio. This metric will someday turn into a complete sinking negative that will, in turn, utterly ruin all of our capital markets.

    Ted Butler: The Silver Nightmare Will Be Over Soon

    The argument for a near-term monster rally
    by Adam Taggart

    Saturday, November 1, 2014, 6:20 PM


    Halloween couldn't have been more terrifying for silver investors. The gray metal cracked under $16/oz on Friday, a price not seen for nearly half a decade.

    For years now, it has seemed like silver has been beaten down so badly its price couldn't go lower. But then it has.

    Why has silver seen such a gut-wrenching price decline? (now down 2/3 compared to its high in late 2011). And will it ever see brighter days again?
