Although gold stocks are rallying today, my work leads me to believe that there is more downside before a bottom. The good news is the sector is now much closer than it was a few weeks ago. Yet, patience and discipline will be the name of the game over the coming days and weeks. Discipline is required to exit hedges at the right time while patience is required to buy as low as possible. I am looking at JNUG (3x long GDXJ) as well as several juniors I believe have exceedingly strong upside potential over the coming quarters and years. Full Story

So hard statistics tell us gold has been behaving unusually in London hours for a considerable time. The LBMA is not a regulated market, but derivatives and share prices based on precious metals are, so regulators have a duty to be interested. The FCA should broaden its investigations accordingly, but whether it does or not it is hard to see how the twice-daily gold fix can survive. Full Story

In other words, we are now three years into the “beginning of the end” of the “New York Gold Pool”; during which global debt, unemployment and inflation have surged to historic highs, whilst GDP has plunged, social unrest exploded and countless currencies crashed. Hopefully this articles helps you understand just how wide the gap is between government supported “markets” and economic and financial reality particularly as regards the asset class most likely to protect you from the inevitable “re-connect” in the coming years – or perhaps, months or even weeks.

This past week was action packed and the smoke signals have come at us in a fast and furious manner. The biggest headline came from the EU parliamentary elections where a good portion of the disenfranchised sent an unambiguous message of protest of central governments and their socialist masters. The people are WAKING UP to the creeping loss of freedom and destruction of the economic future by Brussels and their handmaidens in capitols throughout the Eurozone. Let’s take a look at the growing march against CREEPING socialism and totalitarianism on the continent. Full Story

The BRICS nations in the Jackass view are acting in coordinated fashion. These players are explicitly telegraphing a message to those who knew how to read it. The Eastern group of sovereign nations is making a global billboard statement, a Call to Arms in the Global Monetary War, in the Global Gold War. They wish to formulate the critical mass required to launch a New Gold Trade Standard. They must assemble the gold reserves, a very complex task when such great volume approaching 10,000 tons is desired (as a mere start). They are busily sourcing the vast BRICS Gold Central Bank, which will fortify the Gold Trade Notes used as letters of credit. It is all coming together, and even the gold community struggles to read the signals. It is important never to take the stories at face value. If the dots connect, even in astounding ways, it pays to follow the pattern, to step back, and see the picture clearly. The BRICS nations and their Associates are boldly sourcing thousands of tons of Gold!! Full Story

In anticipation of this, the gold market is packing up its bags and moving east. The conditions in the West are simply too risky. Weighed down by corruption and fraud, the Western banking system has lost the respect of its peers, who are looking to capitalize on the quagmire taking place in the US and Europe, the historical centers of the gold trade. As well, the economic power is shifting to the East now as the West, now a hotbed of fascism/socialism/communism falters as the East moves more towards capitalism. Full Story

Wake Up America

And so fascism is here – and it doesn’t even work. We have sold our birthright of freedom for a mess of inedible pottage. Our economic dictators should at least heed the warning of their predecessor, Field Marshal Hermann Goering. After his capture by the Allies, Goering stated: Your America is doing many things in the economic field which we found out caused us so much trouble. You are trying to control people’s wages and prices – people’s work. If you do that, you must control people’s lives. And no country can do that part way. I tried it and failed. Nor can any country do it all the way either. I tried that too and it failed. You are no better planners than we. I should think your economists would read what happened here.” Full Story

Trading in the Junior space continues to be lackluster and the Venture is also near the bottom of a tight trading range. It too could ease further before the new bull market resumes. I am seeing financings getting closed though and news flow is finally starting to pick up. The discoveries we need to renew interest will hopefully follow. Full Story

The Austrian Central Bank has conducted regular audits of its gold reserves in the past as well. Our latest audit is part of this routine. We do not intend to publish details of that audit. Full Story

A return to value is the result of a bear market, but as long as fear remains heightened the bear market can perpetuate and produce even greater value until the fear is dissipated. So a loss of momentum in the gold bear market is a potential catalyst for the end of the bear. We're at a critical juncture and even though fear is ramping up again in the gold sector, in reality the bear has work to do to keep going. Full Story

20% gold

He is only putting 20 per cent into gold right now, despite its traditional role as real money over the millennia. That said he firmly rejects stocks and bonds for the rest of his portfolio, instead preferring a mix of undeveloped land, selected hedge funds and fine art. Full Story

The monetary base is currently about $4T. The US Treasury owns about 261M ounces of gold. Simple math gives us $15,300 per ounce. If we use a broader measure of the money supply, the gold price should be even higher. Full Story

• Platinum, Palladium and Nickel are outperforming the S&P 500 by a wide margin in 2014.

• The relative strength is fundamentally due to declining supply from key regions such as South Africa, Russia and Indonesia.

• Growth for Platinum, Palladium and Nickel is very strong especially in growing economies in Asia which need catalytic converters and stainless steel.

• China has hardly any domestic PGM or nickel production. They must import.

• Focus on advanced PGM/Nickel development projects in stable jurisdictions in North America. Full Story

In a time of comprehensive market interventions by central banks, technical analysis is no more useful than reading entrails or tea leaves. But there would be plenty of room for technical analysts in another occupation: financial journalism. They would need only to put a few specific questions to central banks about their involvement in the gold and interest rate markets and they would have financial journalism all to themselves.

Second, we want to be in good jurisdictions with stability. That being said, there are projects outside of the usual suspects in Canada or Nevada that make sense in today's price environment. We're not very positive on Africa based on the geopolitical risk and the lack of interest from U.S. institutions, but we also recognize there are some noteworthy large-scale projects there.

We still like Nevada. We like Mexico. We like Brazil. We like certain parts of Canada. Full Story

Keep saving. Once you’re out of debt, start making those debt service payments to yourself each month, first. Then live on the rest. Concerns about government confiscation or higher taxes should motivate you to save even more. If the worst comes, you want to have enough left over so you and your family survive. Full Story

Biggest buyers of Swiss gold were India, Hong Kong, China and Singapore. These countries alone account for 70 percent of all Swiss gold exports. However gold shipments to China decreased 54 percent in April. Swiss gold exports to Singapore were down 49 percent. Export figures for India and Hong Kong remained relatively stable. Full Story

It is time to expect volatility, because when a market is so balanced, small amounts of demand or supply can have a disproportionate impact on prices. Full Story

The one thing certain is that no one, absolutely no one can provide an accurate time-table for when PMs will trade at much higher levels. 2013 should be a reminder of the many who endeavored to fix a date and all of whom failed. It is utter nonsense to think anyone can accurately divine the future. The good news is that we do not need to actually know the “When?” All that matters is to be prepared for the eventuality.

Austria is planning to send auditors to the Bank of England in order to verify the existence of Austria's gold reserves stored in British vaults. Full Story

Minor crack up booms can be seen in equities and bonds in the US, UK and the Eurozone as money printed out of thin air seeks shelter from financial and economic repression. Jumping from the proverbial frying pan into the fire. The future sounds bleak and for many it will be, but in reality it is my opinion that this is the greatest opportunity in history for those that can really apply Austrian economics. Full Story

India’s penal gold taxes were one of the main drivers to lower gold prices last year. But the overwhelming victory of new prime minister Narenda Modi is expected to throw that leverage into reverse with hedge funds also taking their cue from Indian buyers. Full Story
