The gold directly possessed and controlled by the Chinese government is surely greater than what the government has reported.
We know this because China has reported its gold reserves at irregular intervals with big jumps in reserves between intervals. That metal was not acquired all at once but over time during which there were no public updates to reserve totals.
We also know that other countries sometimes have held gold in accounts not reported to the International Monetary Fund. Saudi Arabia got caught doing this in 2010.. Full Story

“Bad money drives out good money.” When Gresham put forth this proposition, sovereigns were diluting gold and silver coins with metals of lesser value yet the diluted coins were given the same value for legal tender purposes as the more pure coins. Gresham observed that the more pure coins would be hoarded and the lesser value coins would be used for trade.
Sound familiar? Go find pre-1964 dimes, quarters and half-dollars and try to buy them for their legal tender value. Pre-1964 silver coinage contains 90% silver. Post-1964 silver coins are made from nickel and copper. No one who holds pre-1964 coins would use them for their face value. They have disappeared from circulation. The melt-value of the silver in a 1963 quarter currently is $2.60. Full Story

The stock market wafted last week into a psychologically surreal zone somewhere between terror and, if not greed, then at least jittery optimism. How can stocks rally at all when no one can predict whether the deadly spread of coronoavirus is about to overwhelm America as it did Italy? The economic picture remains just as murky, since odds the global economy will fall into a full-blown depression are no worse than 50-50 right now.

A surge in coronavirus cases, an expansion of economic lockdowns, and an explosion in unemployment claims hit markets this week. But this deluge of bad news didn’t seem to catch investors by surprise.

Unequivocally, gold does not trade on the Comex. The Comex trades paper gold derivatives. It is a futures and options exchange on which a small amount of 100 oz. gold bars change ownership each contract month. The transfer of title is facilitated by the creation of an electronic record called a “warrant.” But even these “warrants” which assign title to specific bars are derivatives. Presumably gold is “delivered” to the parties who stand for delivery (the “stopper”). But that “delivery” most commonly is the electronic transfer of a warrant from the entity short a paper gold contract to the entity who is long the same. Full Story

Two weeks ago, during a March 17 address to the nation in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, President Donald Trump asked that Americans work from home, postpone unnecessary travel, and limit social gatherings to no more than 10 people. And last week, on March 27, Trump signed a stimulus package of over $2 trillion dollars to provide relief to an economy on the precipice of collapse. Full Story

The banks that are begging for bailouts still cling to their bonuses. To terrorize us into letting them keep their bonuses, the banksters are threatening to release the button on their suicide vests and blow themselves up by not taking the bailouts if they can’t have their bonuses.

Turning to the stockmarket itself, we see on the latest 5-month chart for the S&P500 index that while the Fed’s big intervention stoked a massive short covering rally, it DID NOT break it out of our expanding downtrend channel, which now looks set to turn it down into a really severe downleg, made much more likely by the factors that we have considered above.
