My analysis of the gold and silver market is very different from the conventional. I am a monetary scientist. Supply and demand equilibrium analysis means nothing to me. For a monetary metal both supply and demand are undefinable. There is no way to quantify speculative supply, still less demand. Yet without it the gold market is like Hamlet without the prince, to borrow a phrase from Samuelson. Full Story

We have all read reports of upper-class Iranians stockpiling gold as tensions continue to rise, but this shouldn’t really have much of an effect on the price level as Iranian demand is a rounding error in the world of gold. The reason why gold has more than doubled over the last four years has to do with the diminishing amount of confidence in paper assets, namely those denominated in U.S. dollars. Savvy investors in Asia and Europe are very much aware of the risks of holding dollars, yet most of us in the Western Hemisphere are still asleep at the wheel. Full Story

From COT week to COT week the price of gold is up by 4.75%. This is the strongest weekly performance since November 22, 2005. Back in November the gold commercials aggressively padded their short position in an attempt to hold gold below $500 an ounce. Today $700 an ounce is beginning to look like a forgone conclusion as the commercials reluctantly admit their defeat. Full Story

I am happy to report that the Federal Reserve is not increasing Total Fed Credit with its usual disregard to the sheer economic insanity of constantly creating more and more debt, money and credit, although being down by $3.5 billion last week is nothing to write home about ("Dear Mom and Dad, It's been a swell week at camp! The Federal Reserve is tightening money by some insignificant little amount, and now we are going for a canoe ride! Love, Tommy.") Full Story

Yesterday, in a turnaround reminiscent of the 1960's film "Cool Hand Luke, “the bosses at Morgan Stanley finally succeeded in getting poor old Stephen Roach's mind right. For years Mr. Roach had caused headaches up and down Wall Street for his stubborn "failure to communicate" the upbeat messages so vital to the investment trade. Instead he was one of the most influential voices calling attention to the dangers of America's lack of domestic savings and production, growing current account imbalances, and reliance on asset-based consumption. The more upbeat Stephen Roach now anticipates the rosy "soft-landing." scenario. Full Story

Not unexpectedly, the Bolivian government has seized the production facilities of the various gas and oil producers within their borders. The companies have 180 days to accept new terms or be evicted from Bolivia. In a continued socializing of natural resources in South America, higher oil prices are causing governments across the world to eye profit rich oil companies with envy. Full Story

The FED will not stabilize the money supply for long. Bernanke is famous for his speech in which he compared the FED to a helicopter full of paper money. He is attempting to overcome that blunder with tight money. But the result of tight money will be a recession. Then it will be a depression. He knows this. He has hailed Milton Friedman for having told the economists in 1963 that it was the FED’s deflationary policies that produced the great depression. Full Story

Take a look at the chart below if you want to see just how silly investors can get. I’ve deleted the title bar so that you can speculate on what it shows. Note in particular the bottle-rocket action of the last two price bars. Is this the chart of a company that has found a way to extract gold from seawater? To cure cancer…or baldness? To neutralize radioactive waste with a laser? Full Story

-The wicked world of money...the President's Budget that shows not
what is, but what he wishes were...

banana republic - sans the bananas...

I spent the past week in Dubai -- City of Gold -- a hub for both bullion and jewelry trade. Gold Jewelry here is sold by weight and purity, with most of the jewelry being either 22 karat or 24 karat gold (24 karat gold is pure gold; 22 karat is 22/24ths pure, or 91.67%). In contrast, much of the jewelry sold in the United States is either 10 karat (41.67% gold) or 14 karat (58.3% gold). 22 and 24 karat gold jewelry is soft and impractical for everyday wear, which is why most of the jewelry in the West contains considerably less gold.

As we have said often before in order to just play catch up with inflation, gold would have to sell at $1,700 an ounce. Yes, you have lost 50% of your buying power over the past 25 years. Then comes the play to offset everything else to $3,500. These are the projections we made six years ago and we’ll stick with them. That doesn’t mean gold can’t go to $5,000 or $6,000 in a blow-off market, it can. Gold is cheap and it’s a steal until we see $1,700 an ounce. Then we’ll have to figure where it is going from there. This is the lock, the opportunity of a lifetime for investors. Do not wait for pullbacks. Full Story

Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it. This week we look at a more transparent Fed, Japanese monetary policy, the powerhouse rise of gold, and a rather important op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal, with a theme of seeing how they all impact the dollar. There is more than a little intrigue in the markets, and we try and make sense of it. We are going to quote a number of friends who each give us a piece of the puzzle, and see what it all means. But I'll give you a preview: it means more volatility and a weaker dollar. Full Story
