With all the feeding frenzy going on amongst the mining majors, to wit: Inco, Falconbridge, Barrick, Xstrata, Cominco, we were reminded of an earlier such time, at the peak of the silver boom in 1980 when silver miners and oil companies went at it with similar frenzy. Full Story

Perhaps Abraham Lincoln would never have devised his famous adage about fooling all the people all the time if he had a chance to observe the current bond market's complete obedience to Fed propaganda. In an exercise in mass hypnosis that would have made Orson Wells jealous, the Fed has managed to convinced bond investors that inflation no longer matters. This is like convincing major league managers that batting average no longer matters. It was a long process, but for now at least, the Fed should celebrate their communications victory, at least until the actual carnage becomes too heavy to ignore. Full Story

Sprott Asset Management Inc. of Toronto reported to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission this week that it has acquired another 421,800 shares of NovaGold, worth about $7 million, and raised its percentage of ownership of the company from 4.65 percent to more than 5 percent. Full Story

During May and June gold fell 25%. It was overextended and it was a perfect opportunity to show investors there really wasn’t any inflation. The $180 correction in gold was expedited by a 500-ton secret gold sale by the US from gold they had on deposit with the IMF, which was sold through the Bank of England. This is the same tactic they used to drive down gold in October 1987. Full Story

Why has owning gold become ever more important in today’s changing financial climate? It is a fact that there used to be other “save havens” that investors could turn to for asset and currency protection and insurance. Remember the vaunted and respected reputation that the Swiss Franc used to have as the safe place to park your money? Well, that is no longer the case as we observe below. Full Story

Amidst the recent debate about the Barrick takeover bid for Novagold, one fact emerged that for me changed my perception of this company. The question was whether Novagold should be renamed Novacopper? Or to be more precise, should Novagold be classed primarily as a gold or copper producer? Full Story

Can you spot the glimmer of wishful thinking in the following headline, culled from the San Francisco Chronicle ? Here it is, just as it appeared in Wednesday's editions above the fold, front page: "Home sales fall as prices flatten // California registers country's third-biggest decline in volume as red-hot market softens". "Softens"? In our dreams, maybe. Do you recall any "red-hot" markets that merely softened? Of course not. Red-hot markets do not soften, they go phwishhhhh, like a glowing horseshoe when it is plunged into a bucket of water. Full Story

After the collapse of Long-Term Capital Management (LTCM) the regulatory bodies had a window of opportunity to enact substantial change. To be sure, as LTCM’s massive positions put the fear of God into counterparties and volatility in the financial markets erupted, all the regulatory bodies needed to do was watch LTCM burn and then utter the word ‘regulation’. Almost everyone would have signed-on, and those that tried not to would have been looked at as if they had something to hide. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 16 August, 2006

You probably know me for the real peach of a guy I really am. And in the few times per day when I am not, there is always a lot of anger about the mismanagement of the economy, replete with screaming and yelling, the sound of approaching sirens and, sometimes, a lot of spent bullet casings scattered on the ground. It merely adds up to the new psychiatric diagnosis, Mogambo Psychonomic Syndrome (MPS), as recently discovered by Dr. George Ure. Full Story

Since I don’t like to beat around the bush, let me state that right now I think silver is a better investment than it has ever been. Yes, I know silver was much cheaper a short while ago. At that time I tried my very best to convince as many people as I could to buy it under $5. Many did and are glad they bought it. Full Story

I encourage you to register for The Silver Summit this year in Idaho. It will be the best mining conference of the year. It will be much bigger than last year as it will be held in Coeur d Alene, Idaho. Most of the silver mining companies will attend. I will attend, and give two speeches: one during the main event, and one on Sunday morning covering the religious points on silver. Full Story

In the past few months we’ve been subjected to a constant barrage of bad news from the Middle East and around the world. We’ve witnessed plagues, pestilence and natural disasters of biblical proportions: tsunamis, earthquakes, floods and of course, ceaseless warfare, serving as a constant reminder that these are times of great tribulation.

American investors just don’t seem to get it. We had 15 central banks raise rates this year and five do so in the past month. The Bank of Italy is selling dollars and buying pounds and euros, and Wall Street and Washington are oblivious to what is going on. The Fed has stopped raising interest rates with official inflation at 5.4% and Bill Gross of PIMCO tells us rates will be cut again in early 2007 when inflation will be roaring. It isn’t what is coming in inflation – it is what is already in the pipeline that cannot be stopped and it is continuing. Full Story

Barrick never explained to the world what has happened, or how they would fix the flawed policy. Even today, the new guy at the helm President Greg Wilkins defends the policy of ‘a reasonable level of hedging’ as an ‘essential risk-management tool for the company’. It is supposed to ‘stabilize revenues and satisfy banks that finance its projects’. But if this were true, then the policy should be made even-handed. Barrick has never admitted that its one-sided forward selling was responsible for the bearish bias in the gold market for the last decade of the century and the millennium. Full Story

The Fed elected to pause in its rate hiking assault on inflation this week. With the backward looking data pointing to higher inflation that must mean they expect the economy to slow down and thus tame what incipient inflation is lurking around the corner. But wait, the data this week suggests the economy may not be slowing down. The market thinks that means the Fed will have to pick up the rate hike cudgel and once again do battle with inflation, which means higher short term interest rates. But the Bond King himself, Bill Gross, declares we are at a turning point and another bull market in bonds is about to appear! Full Story
