By: Julian D. W. Phillips, Gold/Silver Forecaster - Global Watch - 27 August, 2010

Nearly all the commentary we have heard on this question says the same. “Yes, the prospects of a Double-Dip recession have increased but it remains unlikely that it will happen”. We feel that there may be just a hint of self-interest in these answers. Full Story

Watching economists and media analysts react to breaking economic news is a bit like looking at a flock of pigeons flying over the New York skyline. A true wonder of the urban landscape, the flocks can include hundreds of individuals who show an uncanny ability to stay in tight formation as the group quickly zig-zags between buildings. Full Story

AT THE START of this week, stocks on the Dow Jones, Tokyo Nikkei and FTSE100 in London offered a bigger dividend-yield than you'd earn in interest from their local government bonds. Full Story

Ostrich investors are a major driving force in today’s financial markets. As the name implies, they are hiding their heads in the sand like the popular literary perception of the king of birds. Burned in 2008’s epic stock-market panic, they have shunned active investing ever since. Trillions of dollars of their capital languishes idle on the sidelines, earning zero in money markets or near-record-low yields in Treasuries. Full Story

Increasingly, Credible Evidence indicates that the International Banker Cartel* and Allies are about to suffer their First Significant Loss since President Andrew Jackson (“The Bank tried to destroy me, but I destroyed it first” – Ed. a Paraphrase) liquidated the Second National Bank of the United States in 1833. Full Story

By: Michael Kilbach - 27 August, 2010

In the big picture we think the gold and silver bull market has just started to warm up. It is not that we believe the ten year bull market has not been underway for a significant amount of time, but rather we believe the majority of the price appreciation is ahead and not behind us. Full Story

By: R. D. Bradshaw - 27 August, 2010

In the past two years of publishing, the Goldsmiths and news reports at www.analysis-news have discussed two of the major problems now facing the Obama Administration and the Rothschild banking Cabal which is using the US dollar to conquer and rule the world. First, there is the manifestly obvious looming possibility of a collapse of the dollar and the US debt structure now in hock for at least $14 trillion. Full Story

I remember the good old days of the Cold War when the Russians were humorless robots who could always manage to catch James Bond, a British secret agent better known by his “License to Kill” number: 007. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 27 August, 2010

Amazing how far a really stupid idea can travel. Warren Buffett helped spread and legitimize one a couple of months ago, and now the Wall Street Journal has pitched in on the same topic with an op-ed piece written by one Eden Martin, a lawyer and Chicago muckety-muck. Full Story

By: The Energy Report and Vikas Ranjan - 26 August, 2010

"Ubika" is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning growth. Ubika Research Cofounder and Managing Director Vikas Ranjan knows investors covet growth, so Ubika covers companies in sectors with tremendous growth potential. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Vikas offers some strategies on how to play the cleantech sector. Full Story

By: Clif Droke - 26 August, 2010

Many observers have been wondering if the upcoming 4-year cycle bottom in a few weeks will exert a negative impact on stock prices when the previous 4-year cycle bottom in 2006 barely registered. You may recall that the period from August through December of 2006 saw a stellar performance from the market that left many market technicians perplexed as to why the 4-year cycle bottom left no discernible impact on stock prices at that time. Full Story

By: Peter J. Cooper - 26 August, 2010

August is usually a quiet month in the precious metals market but this month is different. Silver has started behaving 100 per cent like a precious metal and not as an industrial commodity, and while stocks and Dr Copper have been falling, silver has been outperforming gold which is also on the up. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 26 August, 2010

Most of the time, I am so freaked out that I spend most of the day in the Mogambo Bunker Of Paralyzing Fear (MBOPF), scared out of my mind at catastrophic ramifications of the economic stupidities that are being foisted upon us, like, for instance, increasing taxes in a recession! Gaaahhhhhh! Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 26 August, 2010

You’ve got to wonder what the banks have in mind now that they’ve raised credit card rates to an average 14.7 percent, up 160 basis points from a year ago. Are lenders perhaps trying to tell us that they are no longer interested in advancing cash to users of plastic? After all, what shopper or diner would borrow a dime with a credit card if it carried such an exorbitant interest charge? Full Story

By: The Gold Report and Taylor MacDonald - 25 August, 2010

Taylor MacDonald, vice president of investments with Pathfinder Ventures Corporation in Vancouver, has a knack for discovering the undiscovered. In an exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Taylor drills down in the niche of innovative technology companies serving the resource sector. Full Story

By: Adrian Ash, BullionVault - 25 August, 2010

WHATEVER the reasons for China's massive household savings rate (Western economists blame the lack of social security, so you can guess their cure), the World Gold Council's Gold Demand Trends today showed private consumers putting ever-more money into physical gold. Full Story

By: Jeff Clark, Casey's Gold & Resource Report - 25 August, 2010

So, is now the time to buy? It depends on your honest answer to another question: “Do you own enough gold?” By “enough” I mean an amount that lends meaningful protection on your assets. By ”meaningful” I mean that no matter what happens next – another financial blow-up, accelerating inflation, crushing deflation, war, a plummeting dollar, more reckless government spending – you won't worry about your investments. Full Story

By: Jim Willie CB - 25 August, 2010

The impact from the cancer and desperation of QE2, the next undermine of the USDollar (and other major currencies), can be seen in the price of Gold. Better yet, watch the price of silver, whose price movement has actually been leading gold upward. This week, for the first time in perhaps a decade, silver defied the industrial metals and economically dependent energy sector. Silver is money. Full Story

By: Gary Dorsch, Editor, - Global Money Trends newsletter - 25 August, 2010

“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply,” declared Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild, - once the richest man in Europe. In 1840, NM Rothschild was appointed as the bullion broker to the Bank of England, and went on to operate the Royal Mint Refinery in 1852. Nathan gained a position of such enormous power in the City of London that he was able to supply enough money to the Bank of England to enable it to avert a market liquidity crisis. Full Story

The World Gold Council’s latest quarterly recap of the gold market confirms much of the big-picture story we already knew: demand is strong (up 36 percent from a year earlier), supply (up 18 percent) is not keeping pace, and global economic worries are driving investors toward gold as a safe haven. Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 25 August, 2010

Debt is everywhere and it certainly is onerous. We all have heard about the sovereign debt crisis, the debt of Greece and the debts of Ireland, Spain, Portugal and Italy. During that process the euro fell from $1.50 to $1.187; which gave euro zone exporters quite an advantage. The euro has since rebounded to a high of $1.33 and for now settled in near $1.28. Full Story

By: Peter J. Cooper - 25 August, 2010

Gold hit $1,240 an ounce today. Investors seem to be increasingly parking money in the yellow metal as a safe haven asset class while turning their backs on stocks. Bond yields are lower than before the 2008 autumn crash, an ominous signal. Full Story

By: Michael Pento - 25 August, 2010

I've made a living out of exposing economic fallacies, but there's one whale that I can't seem to harpoon. Even top-flight Wall Street analysts seem to believe that the Fed's doubling of the monetary base after the credit crunch has not had an inflationary impact on our economy. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman and Steven George Fair - 25 August, 2010

[From self-described, “radical ol’ gloom-and-doomer” and frequent Rick’s Picks forum contributor Steven George Fair, here’s a tormented essay on why most of us are too far removed from the experience of the 1930s Depression to have any idea or imagination about what is coming. And make no mistake, he warns: Bears who think their timing and strategy will be good enough to gloat about are the most delusional of us all. RA] Full Story

By: The Energy Report and MacMurray Whale - 24 August, 2010

If there were an alternative energy sector exam, Cormark Securities Analyst MacMurray Whale would ace that test. He knows the micro and macro forces at play in a truly global sector and how those forces are affecting companies seeking growth in largely uncharted waters. It's altogether uncommon knowledge but in this exclusive with The Energy Report, Whale provides a heady glimpse at some prospective alternative energy plays with tangible catalysts for growth. Full Story

By: Stewart Thomson - 24 August, 2010

Some of you are starting to see some of your gold juniors “pop” upside on various announcements. I maintain that much more such “golden popcorn” will be popping in September, as years of work by many of the juniors starts to come to fruition. I would argue that “Juniors Popping Corn” is going to be the number one gold theme of the next three months, regardless of the movement of the gold price. Full Story

By: Steven Saville, Speculative Investor - 24 August, 2010

US economic data have been deteriorating over the past three months and are likely to deteriorate further over the next three months, but that's not necessarily a problem for the stock market. The stock market always attempts to discount the future, which means that economic weakness is only ever a threat when it hasn't been discounted. Full Story

By: Axel Merk - 24 August, 2010

Social subsidies may make good politics, but all too often bad economics. When Fannie Mae was created in 1938, the seeds were planted for the biggest housing bust the world has ever seen; the going was good while the party lasted for the first 80 years, but ended in the financial crisis of 2008 – the hangover for many still remains. Full Story

By: Toby Connor - 24 August, 2010

The move to a lower low on Friday puts the odds squarely in the “one more leg down” camp. I’ve noticed a couple of patterns emerging in the stock market. The first one is the tendency for a market cycle to bottom on an anticipated news event. The last two intermediate cycle lows bottomed on or one day prior to a jobs report. Full Story

By: Gary Tanashian - 24 August, 2010

The main point I am trying to make as the deflation argument once again comes to the fore, is that with this short term view finally kicking in, we are at the point where it makes sense not only to manage these near term events, but to begin cobbling together medium and long term plans to go along with an already established short term deflationary one. Full Story

By: Chris Powell, Secretary/Treasurer, GATA - 24 August, 2010

A "Lunch with the FT" interview with "When Money Dies" author Adam Fergusson, published Friday in the Financial Times and written by Jonathan Ford, was interesting enough but couldn't help concluding with the caricature used to smear anyone interested in gold -- the survivalist loony seeking to be vindicated by the collapse of civilization. Full Story

If the candlestick maker wants cake, he can't simply demand that the baker hand it over. The cake needs to be produced, and the baker has to expend labor and material to produce it. Unless the candlestick maker offers the baker something of value in exchange, the cakes won't get baked. The ability of the candlestick maker to demand cake from the baker is a function of his ability to supply candles to trade. Without production, consumption can't occur. Full Story

Analyzing a 2-day 15-minute interval S&P 500 chart from last week, August 19-20, 2010, provides a valuable lesson in Fibonacci ratio related market action. The Level 3 grid included in the chart below comes from drilling down through the Fibonacci ratio price grids in the entire 1982-2007 bull market. What this chart demonstrates is that investors and traders that do not track the current Fibonacci price grids might as well be investing and trading wearing blindfolds. Full Story

By: The Gold Report and David Skarica - 24 August, 2010

Addicted to Profits Newsletter Writer David Skarica has an addiction that might just benefit you. David is addicted to making himself and his subscribers money. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, David predicts that the U.S. economy will decline very slowly, describing the process as "Chinese water torture." Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 24 August, 2010

Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital notes that the Federal Reserve, and the idiots like Paul Krugman who genuflect at the altar of Keynes, is not done with destroying the economy, but that “Bernanke and his supporters have said that their stimulus will be withdrawn as soon as the recovery takes hold in earnest.” Hahaha! Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman and Cameron Fitzgerald - 24 August, 2010

[Against our own concerns that a stock-market crash is imminent, and that it will not wait until after the November elections, we must weight the obvious fact that we have plenty of company – perhaps too much company – in the chicken-little camp. In the think-piece below, Cam Fitzgerald, a frequent contributor to the Rick’s Picks forum, expresses similar, contrarian reservations. RA] Full Story

By: Julian D. W. Phillips, Gold/Silver Forecaster - Global Watch - 23 August, 2010

What is a ‘Bull’ market? It is a market in an upward price phase of a market with the expectation that it will be followed by a ‘Bear’ or downward phase of a market. This mindset is common to all markets. Sayings like, “everything the at goes up must come down” is pretty standard and taken as part of life itself, but few examine it to see if it is really true. Full Story

By: Jason Hommel, Silver Stock Report - 23 August, 2010

Please bear with me while I repeat myself about how tiny the silver market is. Let's start with the facts. World annual silver mining adds about 600 million ounces of new silver, that includes all silver as byproduct supply from copper, gold, lead, zinc and other mines. Recycling contributes about 150 million oz. That's total supply. Full Story

By: Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT - 23 August, 2010

Months ago we wrote about the true causes of hyperinflation. We proceed to expand upon our views as we disagree with the views put forth by John Mauldin, Mike Shedlock and now Jim Rickards who all focus on velocity and/or bank lending as important causes of hyperinflation. Full Story

By: Dr. Ron Paul, U.S. Congressman - 23 August, 2010

Recently there have been some encouraging signs that Congress is finally willing to admit what should have been evident two years ago. Even after a $150 billion bailout, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are still bankrupt and should be abolished. Indeed Rep. Barney Frank, a longtime champion of Fannie and Freddie has made a few statements alluding to this and I have signed on to a letter asking him to clarify his remarks and hold hearings on this topic. There seems to be a growing consensus in favor of abolishing Fannie and Freddie. This is the good news. Full Story

By: Captain Hook - 23 August, 2010

The fear of God – or the perception of power – this is the primary tool of the Fed these days. It’s not credibility anymore, as this has been damaged to the same extent as its balance sheet. This is widely understood as a primary fundamental within the larger scheme of things in that... Full Story

By: Howard S. Katz - 23 August, 2010

For the past 10 years, there has been a pronounced advance through the autumn, usually into the winter and sometimes lasting until May. Gold usually hits a bottom in July and then makes a secondary test in August. Then in late August it starts to rally and after Labor Day begins a steady advance. The up move in early August is unusual and is probably a hint that this year’s autumn rally will be stronger than usual. Full Story

By: David Chapman - 23 August, 2010

Gold prices failed at trend line resistance seen near $1237. A break above this level would be positive and suggest that the highs near $1265 could fall. Support is seen at $1220, $1210 and $1200. Below $1200 a test of major support near $1170 becomes probable. Below $1170 and especially under $1150 a steeper decline to test even down to $1000 could occur. Full Story

By: Gene Arensberg - 23 August, 2010

With gold approaching past resistance this week’s COT report reveals COMEX commercial traders increasing their “opposition” to gold and to a lesser extent, silver. Silver’s non-confirmation of gold worrisome. Gold +1.7% and the gold LCNS +8%. Silver +1.2% and the silver LCNS +1.9%. Details just below. Full Story

By: Merv Burak, CMT - 23 August, 2010

Since its bottom in late July gold has been on an almost steady advance, day after day. However, this advance has traced an upward sloping wedge pattern on the charts and this pattern usually suggests a break to the down side ahead. That could come any day now. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 23 August, 2010

Who’d have believed that small investors have deserted the stock market in droves this year? We’d thought just about everyone but Larry Kudlow was out of shares by early 2009, and that the only players left were the high-speed trading computers maintained by the likes of Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan. Full Story

China is the largest holder of the U.S. Dollar in its foreign exchange reserves at $2.45 + trillion. This is an impossible number to trade on foreign exchanges. So they’re stuck with them until they can spend them. But, as long as the U.S. Dollar is the world’s sole reserve currency, these reserves are useful to buy any asset in any country. Full Story

By: Gordon T Long - 22 August, 2010

The economic news has turned decidedly negative globally and a sense of ‘quiet before the storm’ permeates the financial headlines. Arcane subjects such as a Hindenburg Omen now make mainline news. The retail investor continues to flee the equity markets and in concert with the institutional players relentlessly pile into the perceived safety of yield instruments, though they are outrageously expensive by any proven measure. Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 22 August, 2010

When the dollar is no longer viable, Fed monetization of debt will accelerate and the trade deficit will be unpayable. Foreigners will stop shipping goods to the US and the cost of domestic goods will skyrocket. That will bring chaos, but from the point of view of elitists that is better than deflationary depression. Full Story

By: Ed Bugos - 22 August, 2010

The major market averages have been losing momentum and rolling over on short-term trends. Toppish patterns in the intermediate charts and a bearish head and shoulders top (Nov-Aug) in the DJIA, NASDAQ, FTSE, Wilshire 5000 and the TSX is coming into view, for instance, with the current downturn potentially completing the respective right shoulders (see Dow chart below). Full Story

By: John Mauldin, Millennium Wave Advisors - 22 August, 2010

This week I spoke to a small group of businessmen/entrepreneurs about the current economic environment, and after my presentation one asked me whether I didn't have any good news for them, with a kind of gallows humor laugh. And I tried. But upon reflection there is more I could have said, so this week's letter will be what I should have said to be a little more encouraging. Full Story

By: Lorimer Wilson and Ronald-Peter Stöferle - 22 August, 2010

The long-term comparison of gold and other asset classes paints a clearly positive picture. While many ratios are close to the median, this goes to show that the current valuation is certainly not excessive. It is therefore also very easy to rebut the heavily cited argument of the “gold bubble”. Full Story

By: Przemyslaw Radomski - 22 August, 2010

This week we have sent out several messages to our Subscribers regarding the current market situation. Now, the markets have calmed down for the weekend, and we are able to provide you with a report summarizing precious metals performance over the whole week, and - to some extent - provide you with our thoughts regarding gold's next move. Full Story

By: Warren Bevan - 22 August, 2010

The S&P once again was rebuffed from falling markedly below the very significant 1,070 level which could mean we are heading higher once again, at least for the short term. Markets remain a very difficult and treacherous place to ply my trade these days. Although there are exceptions. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 22 August, 2010

Frederick Sheehan has a blog titled aucontrarian, which, I am sure, is a play on the classy French phrase “au contraire,” meaning, as I understand it, “to the contrary,” but for a gold bug like me, all I see is the “au” prefix, which is the symbol for gold! Gold! Fabulous gold! Full Story
