Today, jewelry is at once the very same and vastly different from what it used to be.
The industry is worth upwards of $348 billion per year, and it’s not hard to see why. As an alternative asset, jewelry has grown 138% in value over the last decade – only outperformed by classic cars, rare coins, and fine wine.
However, perceptions of jewelry vastly differ. It’s not a stretch to say that Western jewelry buyers are enamored with diamonds, given their enduring association with special occasions – but it’s interesting to note how that ideal was fabricated. Full Story

In a previous analysis we examined how to create a 21% yield, as the incidental byproduct of the Fed's plans for the cyclical containment of recession.
In this analysis, we will deepen that examination and visually illustrate the financial mathematics that would create a potential 48% yield from what the Federal Reserve plans to do in the event of another recession. Full Story

The new normal is that monetary policy will never be neutral or tight again. We are in the age of permanent stimulus. But investors still don't seem to understand the ramifications. If they did, gold would be soaring and the dollar would be tanking. Perhaps surprise easing from the Fed, which may not be far off, will finally get the markets attention.

Moreover, if we do see a more immediate break out, then it would strongly suggest that the minimum target we could see resides in the 131 region, whereas before I thought it would be a minimum target of 128. Alternatively, if we were to see a sustained break of the 115 region, then my expectation would likely be wrong.
So, while it seems that the masses are standing against Eric and I on our near-term expectations for bonds over the coming 3-6 months, at least I know I will be riding this trade in TLT to 131+ in good company. Full Story

My goal is to make you mad. Not at me (though I expect to ruffle a few feathers with this one). At the evil being wrought in the name of fighting inflation and maximizing employment. And at the aggressive indifference to this evil, exhibited by the capitalists, the gold bugs, and the otherwise-free-marketers.
So, today I am going to do something I have never done. I am going to rant! I am even going to use vulgar language (which is totally justified).
In researching several recent articles, I re-read old passages from Keynes. Consider these snippets.. Full Story

For now, the macro fundamental and technical is a mixed bag. I am not abandoning a forward bullish view, but that gold/stock markets chart needs to stabilize and other macro/sector fundamentals along with sentiment need to come in line.
And the next time the bullhorns sound across Goldbugville maybe one or two more bugs will tune them out. It really is a reliable short-term indicator all on its own.
A big part of the pitch a few weeks ago was the impending collapse of the US dollar. Well, Uncle Buck got thumped yesterday and so did gold! So we can tune that crap out as well. If USD breaks down, fine. We may have ourselves one hell of an ‘inflation trade’. But two things… Full Story

- Financial history may not repeat but it certainly harmonizes, as seen in a review of modern monetary operations.
- John Law's Mississippi Scheme involved epic monetary expansion, where approximately 7 printing presses.
- The mania remains the textbook schematics of today's global financial bubble.
- Another comparable example, the Railroad Stock Financial Panic of 1873 echoes today in over-leveraged products.
Dovish monetary policy over stimulated economic conditions, culminating in the now infamous 1929 market peak / crash. Full Story

Precious Metals Update Video: Gold market is having a problem -- video update.
By: Avi Gilburt - 15 March, 2019|
We are often directed to think that the market reacts in the same manner as Newtonian physics. We believe that a news event which accompanies a market move was certainly the “cause” of that market move. But, how often have we seen markets react in the exact opposite manner in which the substance of the news event suggests?
While science has moved away from Newtonian physics, stock market analysts have not.
Wednesday, we saw a perfect example of this conundrum. Full Story
