Policy Bullish for Gold

This was another obvious “risk-on” week.

Tapering Talk to Fade

Friday when I woke, I checked the price of gold as I always do. Before I was aware of the new COVID variant, the cash price of gold was up 25.25 to over $1,800 again. But from there it was downhill for the safest of all safe havens as the […]

Approaching the End of Gold’s Decline

This was a good week for “good inflation”—in other words, stocks and bonds. But that’s not to say all is well in America’s financial markets. To the contrary, I would urge you to read Alasdair’s latest article titled “Returning to sound money.” Alasdair argues that a return to gold-backed money […]

Gold’s Rise Clears Oliver’s $1,825 Triggering the Next Bull Run

What are the Signs of Fiat Currency Destruction?

Alasdair Macleod and Roger Moss return as guest on this week’s program. Central banks now face a dilemma. Either they allow interest rates to rise to sufficient levels to tackle price inflation and lend support to their currencies, or they take one last gamble on yet more stimulus in the […]

Markets Taking Inflation Seriously

Now as it gets very difficult to buy inflation transitory view, there is direct evidence that the market is taking inflation much more seriously.

We May Have an Inflation Problem

This week we had the “good” kind of inflation with stocks and bonds rising in value while “bad” inflation (commodities and precious metals) fell.

Silver is Indicator of Inflation

The 10.73% rise in the price of silver sticks out, relative to what is more and more obviously taking place—namely, that inflation is on the rise, big time! Note my IDW below hit another all-time high rising to 191.64 by the end of this week. The point is that everything […]

How America’s Emerging Revolution is Similar to Cuba’s

Richard Maybury and Dr. Roger Moss return this week on the radio program.

Fed Policy is Unsurprisingly Insane

Even the Federal Reserve is now catching on to the idea that rising levels of inflation is not transitory. But the Fed still doesn’t understand that it is the primary cause of rising price levels. Print massive amounts of money to pay for trillions of vote-buying free stuff that politicians […]
