How does a major mining company like Goldcorp use a bear market in precious metals to grow its business?
Well, many of the mining businesses that have been successful over the last 10 to 15 years had their start in the last bear market. The current market feels a lot like 1999-2000 and that was a time when the companies that had the ability to do so had fantastic opportunities to go out an acquire assets at deflated prices and build new companies.

Gold has had a volatile week, but rose from $1147 last Friday afternoon to a high of $1205 on Tuesday. On Wednesday the price moved between down $25 on the latest opinion poll on the Swiss referendum, then recovered to $23 before falling again on the release of the Fed’s FOMC minutes. However, despite these unsettling swings gold rose on the week by about $30 overall, making it two weeks in a row as shown in our first chart. Full Story

We will clip this post here and go on managing the market as always, taking what it gives, managing against what it is one day going to take and keep the big picture view in place at all times. That view very simply is that 6 years on from the US financial crisis (ongoing, though that is an unpopular notion at this time) a global cadre of policy makers are playing a transparent game of Whack-a-Mole trying to one-up each other until the whole thing flushes once again.

The topic of ‘currency war’ has been bantered about in financial circles since at least the term was first used by Brazilian Finance Minister Guido Mantega in September 2010. Recently, the currency war has escalated, and a ‘sanctions war’ against Russia has broken out. History suggests that financial assets are highly unlikely to preserve investors’ real purchasing power in this inhospitable international environment, due in part to the associated currency crises, which will catalyse at least a partial international remonetisation of gold. Vladimir Putin, under pressure from economic sanctions, may calculate that now is the time to play his ‘gold card’. Full Story

Western governments have done a moron’s job of managing the world’s largest, most important currencies — the dollar, the euro, the yen, the pound … and others. Politicians have spent unimaginable sums of money that their economies don’t have in order to give voters undeserved benefits and payoffs. They’ve issued gargantuan sums of debt to do so, and then relied on their central bankers to manipulate the monetary system to delay the reckonings that must happen in order to clear the monetary system of imbalances that the politicians and bankers have fostered.

Amazingly, skepticism amongst the PM community has become so pervasive, even some of its wisest strongest leaders are fearful TPTB will be able to suppress gold and silver prices in the event of a Swiss “yes” vote. Claims that “swaps” will be substituted for the real thing are a specific “goldbug fear” I have read of, and the SNB dragging their feet on mandated gold purchases another; as clearly, many of us have been lulled into a fear that somehow the Cartel will always “find a way to win.” However, “Economic Mother Nature” assures us prices cannot stay this low for long, and the reality of a global monetary awakening is clearly occurring as we speak. Remember, it’s always “darkest before the dawn”; and right now, the “darkness” been more pervasive. Have faith in your insurance and don’t put yourself in a position to lose it. As unlike health, fire and flood insurance – which may one day be needed; fiat currency insurance will be required – likely sooner rather than later. Full Story

Marin Katusa: Under the leadership of President Vladimir Putin, Russia has reestablished itself as the alternative to the American superpower. Putin has aligned himself with nations like China to work in concert against U.S. interests globally. Furthermore, a new bank formed by the BRICS countries—Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—will attempt to assert itself as an alternative to the International Monetary Fund.
The Colder War will be a long battle, just like the first Cold War, but in the Colder War, judgment day of the petrodollar will be the critical battle. One must understand global politics and the Colder War to be a successful investor in the energy sector. Full Story

Be suspicious of the “happy talk” and “fear this” pronouncements from governments, central banks, and Wall Street.
Be your own bank – more real money, less paper and digital currency.
Stack your real money in a safe place – preferably a private vault outside the banking system.
Be aware that digital currency can disappear rapidly, as in a financial reset, derivative crash, confiscation, currency collapse, cyber-attack or whatever. Trust and hope that digital currency will SLOWLY lose it value, but have a backup plan for when a crash actually occurs.
Be wary of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the trauma they always bring. Full Story
