Investment Opportunities for Accredited Investors in the Precious Metals Markets

By: David Chapman - 19 August, 2018

Jim Rickards published his book, Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis back in 2011 as the currency wars were just getting underway. His timing was prescient. Rickards has been a lawyer, counsellor, investment banker, and risk manager. He advised the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. intelligence community, and major hedge funds, including acting as general counsel for the ill-fated Long-Term Capital Management, the hedge fund that almost brought down the global financial system in 1998.

The Fourth Turning – the influential work by William Strauss and Neil Howe published in 1997 – uncannily predicted much of what has happened in America over the past twenty years. “The next Fourth Turning,” the authors predicted, “is due to begin shortly after the new millennium, midway through the Oh-Oh decade. Around the year 2005, a sudden spark will catalyze a Crisis mood. Remnants of the old social order will disintegrate. Political and economic trust will implode. Real hardship will beset the land, with severe distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation, and empire.” Full Story

If you have tracked me at all since January, I had stated that if bitcoin (BTC-USD) is in a wave iv of the degree that I believed, support for this corrective wave, that started in January is in the $3000-$4700 zone. $4700 is an ideal landing spot for this wave iv as it is the .382 retrace of the third wave that began in July 2016.

In my business, there is a fine line between standing by your conclusions and being unwisely stubborn. But no matter what I say, people will still label me a perma-bear or perma-bull—often at the same time. It’s an occupational hazard to which I am accustomed. It’s really a lot more fair to characterize me as the “Muddle Through” guy. There are always reasons to be bullish or bearish. Admittedly, my letter tends to dwell more on the reasons to worry, but I think that’s a sign of the times. Full Story

The precious metals market has a similarly rare and portentous indicator: “net short speculators.” But today this one actually happened. In the latest commitment of traders (COT) report, both silver and gold speculators finally took on more short positions than long. This is rare because speculators are almost always net long – that is, betting that precious metals will go up rather than down. And it matters because speculators are usually wrong at big turning points. In other words, when they’re convinced they’re right, they’re usually wrong. And this week they became just about as certain as they’ve ever been that precious metals are going to tank. Full Story

Big trouble is brewing in the mighty North Dakota Bakken Oil Field. While oil production in the Bakken has reversed since it bottomed in 2016 and increased over the past few years, so has the amount of by-product wastewater. Now, it’s not an issue if water production increases along with oil. However, it’s a serious RED FLAG if by-product wastewater rises a great deal more than oil. Full Story

Nine years. Is it short or long? It depends on what we are talking about. In the geological time scale, it’s a blink of an eye. But in the business cycle time scale, nine years is a really long time. The current economic expansion has recently turned 9 years old, as the Great Recession ended in June 2009, according to the NBER. Full Story

The Trump Administration is at it again. On July 18 the financial press got ahold of a story that said the next target of the Trump tariffs is likely to be the uranium/ nuclear energy sector. In what looks like a repeat of what happened with steel and aluminum, the White House said it would investigate whether uranium imports threaten national security, given how dependent the United States is on the nuclear fuel. If the sector is threatened - and why wouldn’t it be, where 90% of the uranium needed for American nuclear reactors comes from abroad - import tariffs would likely be imposed. Full Story

The major gold miners’ stocks plummeted in brutal cascading selling this week as stops were run. That shattered strong multi-year support, devastating sentiment among the handful of contrarians remaining in this forsaken sector. With fear and despair extreme, it’s critical to take a deep breath and get grounded in the gold miners’ just-reported Q2’18 fundamentals. They reveal if this surprise anomalous plunge was justified.

Addiction to monetary stimulus and “money printing” results from central banking and fractional reserve banking practices. Larger profits for the banking cartel is a compelling incentive. Such “Keynesian stimulus” increases wealth disparity, consumer price inflation and mal-investments. Power and wealth concentrate in the financial industry, government and the banking cartel.
