Jim Rogers: I own gold and I own silver I'm not selling, by any stretch But I'm not buying now

Jim Rogers: I own gold and I own silver. I own all the precious metals, especially gold and silver. I'm not sure I would buy right now. Gold has gone up 12 years in a row, which is extremely unusual for any asset, at least in my experience. I don't know any asset that's gone up 12 years without a down year except gold. Gold has had only one decline over 30 percent in those 12 years. That, too, is extremely unusual.
Plus, if you look at the open interest from the CFTC, the speculators have been piling into gold. The number of call options is more than twice the put options. All the signs are that there's too much speculation in gold right now.
I'm not selling, by any stretch. I own it. If it goes down, I'll buy more. If America bombs Iran, I'll probably buy more going up. But I own it and, over the longer term, gold is going to go much higher because the world is doing nothing but printing money. And when the world economies get bad again, they're going to print even more money. But I'm not buying now.

Marc Faber : I am buying Gold and holding it. I don't speculate in gold

Marc Faber : This year the gold price may not exceed the $1,922/oz high that we reached on Sept. 6. Maybe it will. I'm not a prophet. I'm just telling people that I'm buying gold and holding it. I don't speculate in gold. If you buy gold, you better understand that the price could always move to the downside. If you don't understand that, don't invest in gold—or in anything. - theaureport

Gold will probably peak next year because of improving U.S. growth

....Gold will probably peak next year because of improving U.S. growth, even as the Fed expands stimulus, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said in a Dec. 5 report. It still expects an average of $1,750 in 2014. The drop of as much as 8.9 percent since Oct. 5 pushed gold below its 200-day moving average last week for the first time since August. Prices slid almost 10 percent in seven weeks after falling below the measure in March. The 14-day relative-strength index (MXWD) was at 31.8 yesterday, near the level of 30 that indicates to some analysts who study such charts that a gain in prices may be imminent.- via Bloomberg

Jim Rogers: On a historic basis, silver is cheaper than gold

Jim Rogers: On a historic basis, silver is cheaper than gold. Gold is down 10 or 15 percent from its all-time high. Silver is down 30 or 40 percent. So I guess I'd rather buy silver than gold. I'm buying neither at the moment. But if I had to, I'd probably buy silver today rather than gold. But again, I'm not buying or selling either.

Ned Schmidt: Gold will benefit from the growing wealth of China

Ned Schmidt: All markets are connected in some way. Money flowing into some market is coming out of some other market. When an investor puts money into a stock, that money is flowing out of the money market. The same is true on a global basis. The flows are just bigger. For 20 years, where in the world money was flowing to and where it came from created opportunities. Today, one has to understand where the money flowing to China is coming from and where it will flow. Those flows give an investor more opportunities. Thinking like a financial engineer means considering all the methods of building a financial bridge to the future. Many think gold will benefit from the growing wealth of China. Well, where is that wealth coming from and is that creating any more interesting opportunities? The answer is yes, in the form of the Chinese renminbi. China's growing economy means that the volume of transactions in renminbi is growing, and in general at a double-digit rate. An investor is likely to double one's money in renminbi in the next ten years, and that may be better than Gold. - in daily bell

Peter Schiff : Gold was going to go up regardless the Election

Peter Schiff : The dollar was going to go down and gold was going to go up regardless. The re-election of Obama and the politics behind it just really shows the trouble America is in as a nation and as a society. The types of leaders we’re likely to elect, and the types of policies we’re likely to pursue are going to substantially undermine the economy. It’s almost like a self-perpetuating prophesy, because the more the government interferes in the economy, the more regulations we have; the more government spending we have, the more taxes we have—particularly on those with upper income—the worse the economy is going to get, the lower our living standard is going to go and the more good job opportunities are going to be diminished. And that’s very fertile ground for politicians to promise relief in the form of more government. And, more government creates the need for more government; because the more government we have, the more poverty we have. We’re in that spiral right now; this is how democracies die. We’re in a situation, votingwise, where we have more people in the wagon than we have pulling it. The way you get elected is you promise to people who are riding in the wagon more free stuff, an easier ride; and you also promise to whip the people pulling the wagon a little harder and make them do a little bit more. And as you do that, there are always people pulling the wagon who decide they are tired of pulling the wagon, and they want to jump in with everyone else. So you get even more people looking for something from government and you have fewer people to pay the bills. And this is where we are—a disintegrating nation. - in seeking Alpha

Jim Rogers Gold will Go Much Higher over The Next Decade

Jim Rogers: Yes, gold certainly over the next decade will go much higher. There is no question about that, but there are a few times when there is going to be more money printing. - in Jim Rogers Blog ( http://jimrogers1.blogspot.com )

Marc Faber : I do own some Gold Shares through stock options, because I'm a director of several exploration companies.

Marc Faber : Because I live in Asia, I am quite familiar with the Asian markets and economies. I have a bias toward Asian equities, especially because I can find deals in places such as Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong—stocks that give me 4–7% dividend yields. With yields at those levels, at least I'm paid to wait. Even if they're cut 5%, I'd still get better cash flow than I would from, say, U.S. government bonds. Consequently, I feel reasonably confident owning such shares.

Because I have allocated only 25% of my portfolio to equities, if the markets were to drop 50%, I would have funds elsewhere in my portfolio to buy more equities. That's not a prediction for a 50% market decline; it's just to say that I'm positioned in such a way that I could put more money in equities through a) my cash flow, b) my income and c) my cash position. And I do own some gold shares through stock options, because I'm a director of several exploration companies. - in the aureport

Gold Producers Climbing Off 28-Year Low Versus Metal

Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX) and other bullion producers are climbing from 28-year lows relative to the metal as they tame costs, raise cash flow and beat profit estimates.
Share-valuation measures have improved since mid-year, suggesting a return of optimism regarding the sector, Kenneth Hoffman, a Bloomberg Industries analyst, said in an Oct. 29 report. Goldcorp Inc. (G) and Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd. (AEM) rose the most in almost five months after their earnings last week beat analysts’ forecasts. Barrick, the world’s largest producer, reports results tomorrow.
“The gold shares are starting to outperform the gold price,” David Christensen, chief executive officer of ASA Ltd. a San Mateo, California-based company that manages about $550 million and invests in precious metals companies. “As the companies begin to tighten their operating constraints and generate more cash flow, we’re seeing some of that turnaround in the valuations in the industry.” : Source Bloomberg Read More >>>>

Gold rebounded after a drop to the lowest price in almost seven weeks

Gold rebounded after a drop to the lowest price in almost seven weeks spurred purchases and as investors boosted holdings in exchange-traded products to a record. Silver, platinum and palladium advanced.
Spot gold climbed as much as 0.4 percent to $1,708.85 an ounce and was at $1,706 at 12:06 p.m. in Singapore. The metal slumped to $1,699 yesterday, dropping below $1,700 for the first time since Sept. 7, as the European Central Bank warned about the risk of deflation in some countries.

Jim Rogers Doubts Any Silver Market Manipulation

Daily Bell: The CFTC just dropped an investigation into silver manipulation. Is it manipulated day-to-day and does it matter?
Jim Rogers: A) It doesn't matter and B) I don't think it is. There are conspiracy theorists out there who say it's manipulated but I don't buy it. Mainly, I don't buy it because if it were manipulated like the conspiracy theorists say, it's been going on for 25 or 30 years. By now somebody would have told us. You can't keep a secret like that because then the conspirers would have to be all over the world. There would have to be tens of thousands of people. By now we would know about it. I'm a little skeptical.
It doesn't matter, as far as I'm concerned. Silver is going to go much higher. I own silver and if there's somebody trying to artificially suppress it, more power to them because in the end it's going to go up even higher. Whenever you artificially suppress something, once it finally breaks free, boy, does it skyrocket. Look at gold in the '70s. They artificially kept it down at $35 for a few decades. Finally the market said enough and it went up over 40 times. - in Daily Bell

Obama is Good for Gold

Gold Super Spike Will Signal an Obama Win says Jon Najarian "We've noticed large investments in SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD) and iShares Silver Trust ETF (SLV) over the past two months. After losing its luster from the end of February 2012 through the May 23rd low of $148.84, it wasn't surprising for us to see institutional buying return to the precious metal. Then we had Fed Chairman Bernanke announce QE Infinity post Jackson Hole and his two-day Fed meeting last week, and gold was off to the races. The spike [GLD] from $167 per Bernanke announcement to $172 was nice, but a 3 percent rally isn't really going to get the gold bugs buzzing. However, we see massive buying of November 180, 185 and 200 calls, which portends a significantly greater rally, perhaps even a super spike for gold." he added

Gold is Nature's Currency - It Cannot be Printed - Matt McLennan


Matt McLennan is First Eagle Global Fund Portfolio Manager. He is Head of Global Value Team. This is a brilliant video.
"Ultimately what moves the needle for Gold is the perception that the discipline around sovereign paper is declining. More importantly than the action of central banks is the question of SOLVENCY. What does paper money then? That's a bigger question. You get confronted with very difficult choices. Either fiscal adjustment which is deflationary, do you print money in unconventional ways...or do you try to tighten fiscal policy at the margin, that could be quite inflationary in the medium-term [Wow] We have about 10 per cent of our portfolio in gold bullion and gold equities. It is a long-term monetary reserve"
[How closely do you monitor the supply and demand of Gold?]
"Supply and demand are irrelevant. Gold is the one commodity that lasts forever. The real supply of Gold is the cumulative stock of Gold ever mined. One year's mining supply is less than 2 per cent of the true supply of gold. No other commodity is as stable because every other commodity is produced for use. So there is no value to monitoring the short-term supply for gold. Ultimately the supply is all the Gold that has ever been mined"
{Beautiful - that's it right there - You need to measure the total Gold stock across the whole world. Then compare that against the total stock of dollars being debased / reflated by the Federal Reserve and global central banks. That's the forecasting model for inflation and deflation against the one true value ruler of Gold now in the form of true currency.}

Peter Schiff : The Gold Standard forced the government to responsibly confront irresponsible fiscal policy

Peter Schiff : "The gold standard forced the government to responsibly confront irresponsible fiscal policy. At first Nixon tried devaluation, but the amounts were far too small to stop the gold drain. As an escape hatch, he instead abandoned the gold standard (although he said that the move was temporary). Without this “relic”, government could continue to finance its spending with ever larger deficits without losing any more gold. So instead of devaluation or deflation, we chose inflation instead. Many consider the impossibility of running perpetual deficits under the gold standard as proof of its unsuitability to the modern economy. As I see it, this is precisely why the gold standard is so desirable and so badly needed today."

The Republicans Consider Returning To The Gold Standard

There IS going to be a return to the gold standard, but it wont be the republicans or any other political influence bringing it to fruition. The Bank for International Settlements, The central bank for central banks, Has issued policy called the Basel Accords. Basel 1 and 2 have already been implemented, which is where the “700 billion” dollar bailout came from. This was the amount needed to capitalize the banks that would continue to function under the terms of Basel 2. Now they are beginning Basel 3, Which will require more “bailouts” to further re-capitalize the fraudulent banks in anticipation for the consolidation (crash). Basel 3 will require a world currency backed by gold. The world is on to the games (derivatives) wall st plays. The gold standard will return and THIS will be the “new” global currency.

Mary Jo Jacobi fmr special assistant to Ronald Reagan, told CNBC, a lot of the party (Republican) faithful believe we should go back on the gold standard; it would control government spending and offer a sense of stability.

Jim Rogers Silver Better Investment Than Gold ‎

After a 16 month correction in this 11 year bull market Silver looks set to resume its long term trend. $29 looks to be the breakout point above the trend line and silver may still take out it's all time nominal high price of $50 this year.it doesn't matter what the price of silver is today. What matters is the fact that you actually HOLD real physical gold & silver. Measure your wealth in terms of grams, ounces, kg The paper silver price will continue to be artificially manipulated until JPMorgan goes down. Period.
PROOF GOVERNMENT RIGS SILVER .

If anybody has any idea of hoarding our silver coins, let me say this. Treasury has a lot of silver on hand, and it can be, and will be used to keep the price of silver in line with its value in our present silver coin. There will be no profit in holding them out of circulation for the value of their silver content.

Jim Rogers : I suspect Gold will be much, much, much higher over the next decade

Jim Rogers : I've actually owned gold for longer than 11 years. I'm not buying now. Gold went up 11 years in a row, which is extremely unusual for any asset. I don't know of any asset in history that's gone up 11 years in a row without a correction. Corrections are normal and are the way things should work, the way things do work. Having said that, I don't know when the correction will stop. It's normal in my experience for corrections to go down 30 or 40%. It's just the way markets work. Gold has not gone down that much. It's only gone down that much once in the past 11 years, and even then it ended the year up. I'm not buying gold at the moment. If it goes down a lot, I hope I'm smart enough to buy a lot more.

Peter Schiff : We need a GOLD Based Monetary System

GIN: So you believe that paper currencies issued by various governments as they exist will continue, but they will be backed by gold?
Peter SchiffThey won’t continue as they exist because right now they have no value. They are backed by nothing.
Most paper money initially existed as a substitute for gold. That’s what gave it value. But right now what gives a currency value is other currency. Most countries hold reserves and the reserves are other currencies. If you are a backing up the euro with the dollar, what’s backing up the dollar?
I don’t think it is going to go to a point where all you have is coins and bars of gold, but I do think that we are going to have to go back to a monetary system based in gold, not based on paper. - in goldinvestingnews

We’re on a trajectory right now to send gold a lot higher, but central banks could do the right thing, and that would limit gold’s gains. But the more they keep printing money and the more they keep interest rates low to artificially prop up the economy, the higher gold is going to go. - in indexuniverse interview 16 July 2012

Gold Recovers From Initial Dip on Bernanke

metals prices are closing and gold was the focus with the collar during bernanke's testimony. sharon is tracking it. gold prices unchanged the last several sessions when it comes to the close and once again, we're seeing gold prices finishing up the day at 1590. there was no hint about qe-3. as many traders and analysts started listening to what he was saying during the q & a period and interpreting what could happen down the road as the chief economist pointed out, we see a 50-50 chance of some type of easing down the road if the economic data continues to deteriorate. the fact remains, gold prices have been stuck in this $100 range the past two months and there have been no real catalysts to get gold out of this range. as one trader told me, seems like the fed is a red herring, even if the fed or central banks do some monetary easing, it will take economic conditions improving to get a catalyst in the market. money still coming in. looking at precious metals seeing inflows in the second quarter, upwards of $700 million

Peter Schiff : Miners produce the bullion. If there is going to be more demand for gold from investors and central banks, where is the gold going to come from? They have to dig it out of the ground and sell it. As the price of gold goes higher, their profit margins increase. So if you are very bullish like I am and think there is going to be a big increase in gold, it’s a huge opportunity for miners. I think there are a lot of people out there that are speculating in the stock market. They have all kinds of tech stocks or social media stocks. If you want to gamble in the stock market, I would much rather gamble on a mining stock than a social media stock. - in Goldinvestingnews

Marc Faber: Gold Not necessarily the Best Asset

Marc Faber: I do not think it (Gold) is necessarily the best asset. What I am suggesting is that people should diversify their assets and should own some gold compared to paper money. Over time central banks will continue to print money everywhere in the world. Therefore, the purchasing power of paper money will decline. So I would own some gold. We are in a correction period and we may still go lower. But on this weakness I would continue to accumulate gold. - in ET Now 21 June 2012

The correction could last longer, but given that governments will print more money, gold is relatively effective as a currency. My preference is physical gold, but I would also own some gold shares, which have been decimated. Goldcorp [GG] is attractive because most of its properties are in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The company isn't exposed to regimes that are talking about nationalizing resources. In general, stock markets are oversold. The U.S. government-bond market is overbought.

Buy Gold ahead of QE3

Societe Generale is “enthusiastic on gold” — so much so that in their latest cross-asset strategy report, they call “buy gold ahead of QE3″ their number one strategy, saying it’s “the perfect asset to benefit” from additional loose monetary policy.
In the report, SocGen discusses the historical relationship between the price of gold and the U.S. monetary base. The SocGen team writes that “if gold catches up with the increase in the monetary base since 1920 (as it did in the early 80s), its price would rise to USD 8500/Oz,” adding that just “to close the gap with the monetary base increase since July 2007, gold would have to rise to $1,900/oz, assuming full transmission from the monetary base increase to the gold price.”

Jim Rogers : Going Back to The Gold Standard is unlikely

Question : Are We Going Back To The Gold Standard
Jim Rogers : I think it's unlikely. I know there are lots of people who would like to return to the gold standard, but the problem with the gold standard is that it always had problems, too. Politicians can always figure out ways to try and cheat us, the poor citizens. - in MoneyNews

Peter Schiff : Buy Gold Now or you will be chasing it later

Peter Schiff : I own a lot of gold i own a lot of gold stocks , over the last 6 months to a year they have not gone up in fact the gold stocks have gone down , over a longer time period of course over the last ten years gold has done very very well , so a lot of these problems have been anticipated in the gold market for years , why it has not had a bigger move recently ? I think that has more to do with the relative strength of the dollar versus other fiat currencies which I think is temporary , I also think people are fooled in thinking that us treasuries represent a safe heaven alternative to gold , people who are piling up treasuries are going to regret it that bubble is going to burst , I am confident that eventually people will find their way back to gold as a safe heaven

Marc Faber : some Gold Mining Shares have become very very inexpensive

Gold Mining Shares have become very very inexpensive says  Marc Faber : I am not sure that gold will make a new high this year but I think we bottomed out and I think that some gold mining shares have become very very inexpensive compared to the reserves they have and I think that in the current environment where it is clear that the worst the economy becomes the the more the money printers will be at work that to own a currency whose supply cannot be increased at the will of some clowns that occupy the central banks is a desirable investment

Central Banks doing a run on Gold

Central Banks Purchased 70.3 Tonnes Of Gold In April 2012! : Data from the IMF showed that Argentina purchased 7 tons of gold last year as the yellow metal was hitting an all-time highs of $1920.30 per ounce. UBS analyst Edel Tully said this suggests the Argentinean central bank was more concerned with increasing its gold reserves despite record prices. Sheeple do a bank run... and the big banks do a run on gold. Central banks gold purchase data from the IMF is in for April. Mexico, Kazakhstan and Ukraine added about 204,000 ounces in April. The Philippines added a whopping 1.033 million ounces in March with gold now at 13.6% of its total reserves. UBS highlighted the Philippines' gold purchase is significant as this is the second largest monthly Central Bank's purchase after Mexico's purchase of 2.5 million ounces in March 2011. Led by Mexico and Russia, central banks from 11 countries and the Eurozone added a combined 57.9 tonnes of gold in March 2012. Mexico raised its reserves by 16.8 tonnes, Russia added 16.5, Turkey 11.5 tonnes, Kazakhstan 4.3 tonnes, Ukraine 1.2 tonnes, while other ex-Soviet republics including Tajikistan and Belarus added less than half a tonne. In percentage terms Argentina made the biggest bet on gold, upping its reserves of gold by more than 10% to 61.7 tonnes over the month. The only sellers were the Czech Republic which reduced its bullion reserves by 4,500 ounces..

Jim Rogers Not Buying Gold Yet

Jim Rogers : "I will add [Gold to my position] somewhere along the line, but not for a while,"
"Gold has been up 11 years running, that's very unusual. Things should correct. "If gold went down 35% or 40% it would go to $1200...But that's normal, markets correct. "That's the way things are supposed to work, and that would be good for gold in the long run." - in a CNBC interview yesterday

The COMEX cannot deliver says Kyle Bass

COMEX is leveraged too high for Kyle Bass . Kyle Bass explains the COMEX Fractional Reserve Bullion at AmeriCatalyst 2011, which took place Nov. 6-8, 2011, in Austin, Texas.What happens to the gold stocks when more than 4% of the people take delivery and the COMEX defaults? They become worthless because it would take a couple of years to deliver all the existing ones, problem is it won't happen. If there is a large demand for deliveries the clients will be promptly paid off and asked to go do business directly with the miners. Miners deal in reality and metal bankers deal in paper and fiction. This is what Kyle Bass has been complaining about for years...after no one listening, I guess he made his point pretty clearly....'if the system screws you, then you screw the system'

Jim Rogers On When To Buy Gold

Jim Rogers : What I said was, if gold gets to $1100 or $1200 or $1300, I would hope I’m smart enough to buy more. I don’t know if it’s going to go there or not. I may buy it at $1850 if war breaks out with Iran. It depends on what happens in the world. What I said was that it won’t surprise me if gold goes down much lower; that’s normal for the way markets work. And if it goes there, I hope I’m smart enough to buy more. But if it goes to $1,550, I would probably buy more. Just depends on what happened. - in Seeking Alpha

Bill Murphy : JP Morgan manipulating the Gold Market



Bill Murphy of GATA explains how the Gold Cartels ( JP Morgan and co) are manipulation the gold and silver markets , and he explains why to understand the gold and silver markets it is fundamental to know what GATA knows and be familiar with the gold price suppression scheme. How outstanding gold loans and massive paper gold shorts have distorted the market and how this is now unravelling. He talks about GATA's past predictions and how their track record is much better than mainstream gold commentators because these are working with the wrong numbers. He also talks about silver manipulation. Good on Bill Murphy for attacking the evil cartel, must have given him high blood pressure over the years. Excellent interview

Peter Schiff : save in Gold not in Fiat Currency

Peter Schiff : save Gold not Fiat Currency , Gold & Silver is not a commodity or investment. More than anything else its the only REAL MONEY. You have to spend some fake money and buy the REAL MONEY back, or else the banksters have you by the balls.

Peter Schiff : The FED Chairman is completely wrong he does not understand money he does not understand gold he does not understand the history of money , the thing about Bernanke is that he does not even understand recent history , he thinks that interest rates and home prices are completely unrelated he thinks that it was a pure coincidence that we had this cheap money under his predecessor and the housing bubble that it just happen to happen at the same time ,Ben Bernanke is completely clueless! "
Bernanke purposely lowered the interest rates and increased the money supply ignoring the "liquidity trap"(keynes), the pigou effect and the criticism by kalecki, the only thing that keep the pieces together is the status of world's reserve currency of the dollar, which is based on some twigs and dirt, he knows this and was instrumental in the making of this "situation".

Bill Murphy of GATA explains why to understand the gold and silver markets it is fundamental to know what GATA knows and be familiar with the gold price suppression scheme. How outstanding gold loans and massive paper gold shorts have distorted the market and how this is now unravelling.And he explains the tremendous potential in mining stocks and how these have been suppressed too, despite rising gold prices. Given their tiny market capitalization he expects that when the rush comes, they will rise in value very rapidly and outshine even the dotcom bubble

Marc Faber on Where To Hide Your Gold

Marc Faber says that you should keep your Gold holdings outside the reach of potential confiscators “As you know, we had MF Global. What did the clients get? Less than what they had at the company,” “And I think eventually the financial system will be an MF Global, where you don’t get your money back from the banks and the investment banks and from the mutual funds and so forth and so on. And so I think everybody has to think to himself: how do I protect myself against the Black Swan event?” Marc Faber told Chris Martenson in a recent interview “Where is anything safe? I mean, I think in a safe deposit box is relatively safe, but maybe not in a safe deposit box in the U.S.,”
“If you look at the MF Global case, it seems—I don’t know for sure—but it seems some people got their money, but not others. This is a very disturbing thing to happen in the financial system. And when I see this, I think we have to be very prudent, so I would hold a safe deposit box outside the U.S.. “Now the question is: how is it to hold a safe deposit box with a bank if the bank closes down. And this happens,” Faber continued. “You can also hold safe deposit boxes in duty-free stores, warehouses at airports around the world. In Switzerland we have them; in Singapore we have them, and so forth. So that’s a possibility.” Faber explained

The Gold Silver Correction is Over says Gary Wagner

Gary Wagner Thinks the Precious Metals Correction is Over--03-29-2012 Gary Wagner of "The Gold Forecast" discusses gold and silver prices from a technical perspective. Although Wagner sees triple-digit silver prices as a near certainty, he predicts that The Gold Silver Correction is Over .The Fed doesn't want to bring gold prices down. Bernanke has openly stated in meetings he wants to keep the value of commodities and housing prices inflated higher via inflation. If he doesn't it allows deflation to rear its ugly head. And he is dead against any kind of deflation. I expect Gold to be $2000/oz before they even start to touch interest rates or stop pumping liquidity into bonds, paper gold and silver.

Gold - Independent Money

Short animation arguing for re-introduction of gold as money because of its independence. Written and narrated by Dominic Frisby. Animated by Pola Gruszka. Sponsored by Gold Resource Corporation. the fundamentals and principals behind gold are rock solid (pun intended). Just look at the central banks of all the wealthy countries hoarding gold like crazy. Gold is also being heavily used in small electronics now days. All of this new smart phones have a decent amount of gold. Gold conducts electricity very well even on a nano level. So yes, gold does have other uses.

the interest rate system must be abolished as well. it is mathematically impossible to pay back interest, and the interest on the interest, with a fixed money supply (as it would be with gold, since gold mining is projected to run out sometime the next 30 years, thus money supply would then be stable) so interest rates are fraud to begin with and can only lead to more money printing to pay the banks -> inflation, or implosion of the system. also, fractional reserve banking is fraud

Gold is Money

Gold is Money it retains is value. Dollars, on the other hand, don't retain their value because Ben Bernanke is printing them like crazy. Investor demand for gold has increased tenfold in 10 years indicating that the commodity is entering a new phase of the gold bull market as China and India drive demand. The price of gold has also been affected by global monetary stimulus programs and the exchange rate between gold and paper is expected to rise even further, with analysts predicting that the next 12 month target for gold will be USD 2,000.

Central Banks Hoarding Gold after the Big Drop

Central Banks Buy Gold On Last Week's Big Drop . Central Banks are buying gold on the dips having bought about 4 Tons the past week according to insiders. Central Bank Gold Buying is a Game Changer" Also remember, China is dig the hell out of their ground and are now the number 1 miners of both gold and silver in the world. You think they are reporting to any agency or institution on how much they are mining?! It's a game theory, the first country to run back to gold will cause the chain reaction... those with gold will win, those without lose.Central banks are taking advantage of the fact that the price of gold dropped 3 percent last week. Reuters said that central banks bought about $250 million worth of gold last week through the Bank for International Settlements.

James Turk on The Gold Standard

James Turk on The Gold Standard

Gold is a good inflation hedge, just don't get into the futures game unless you wanna get hammered when the banksters manipulate the market. James Turk Director of the GoldMoney Foundation argues that the gold standard has been proven to be a working monetary system with automatic leveling functions. As a result of the coming structural changes to our monetary system, both men recommend owning tangible assets. They point out, that those who act first have a great advantage.He also speaks about currency devaluation and the rising gold price. How the gold price is rising against all major currencies and monetary policy is political, having abandoned all pretense of seeking monetary stability. He warns of the dangers of a hyperinflationary crisis. James also explains why gold should be considered money and not an investment.James Turk mentions that today, commercial banks as well as central banks are leveraged at unsustainable levels. While both agree that it makes sense to get back to less risky traditional banking and a sound money system, He raises the question of how it will be possible to bring the leverage down to prudent levels again and how to get rid of the huge amount of complex derivatives. He also talks of the coming dollar collapse and the waterfall decline in the dollar, especially since Ben Bernanke's words on QE

Jim Rogers : Gold below $1,600/oz is a good Buy

Jim Rogers : I’m certainly watching, if it goes below $1,600 I’m sure I’ll buy more. If it goes to $1,200 I hope I’m smart enough to buy a lot more. Gold has been up 11 years in a row now, which is extremely unusual for any asset. So it would not surprise me if gold doesn’t ... continue to have a nice correction in 2012. If it does, if it does, I hope I’m smart enough to buy a lot more. I’m not selling. I’m not selling. I have not sold and will not sell until the bubble comes. There will be a bubble in gold some day but that’s ten years, I don’t know, several years from now. I hope I’m smart enough to sell when the bubble comes. - in businessinsider

A bubble phase is characterized by the majority of market participants being involved in a market space. I saw a gold bubble in 1979–1980, when the whole world was dealing—buying and selling gold 24-hours a day, globally. - in a recent interview with the Gold report

Doing it would mean total end of this world as we know it. If Gold starts to seriously take over dollar Russia, China and other countries will take over the as superpowers.

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Gold provides no yield because it has no counterparty risk

JAMES TURK : Yes, gold doesn't provide yield because it doesn't have counterparty risk. If you want to put your gold at risk and lend it to someone you can generate yield on that. So right now people don't want that counterparty risk because they don't know whether their gold is going to be returned or whether the euro's they haven't deposited in their bank is going to be returned, if the bank goes belly-up, or the purchasing power of the euros they put on deposit will be returned because of inflation as a result of all the quantitative easing and money printing that's going on around the world. So you can't really look at some of those "straw man" arguments against gold because they don't think they carry any weight. The more important thing is what's been actually happening in over the last 11 years - the gold price has risen in US dollar terms at an average annual rate of appreciation of 17%. Now have you been earning 17% on your dollar deposits or euro deposits every year? You haven't and so gold is going to become more and more attractive as people understand that gold is still undervalued and still very much useful, and you know, valuation is more important than price. They are different things - as long as an asset is undervalued you should continue to accumulate it and by all my historical measures, gold is still undervalued. - in mineweb

Not very much, but if gold goes down a lot, I would buy. I hope I am smart enough to buy a lot more gold. Gold is going to go much higher over the course of this decade. Do not sell your gold, not yet. - in ET Now

James Turk more bullish on Silver than on Gold

JAMES TURK: Well my long-term view is that I've always been more bullish on silver than I have been on gold and the reason is that even though gold is cheap, silver is even cheaper than gold. The ratio is still in the 50s when the historical ratio is 16 ounces of silver equal to one ounce of gold, and I expect before this bull market is over, we're going to get down toward that area. But the problem with silver is that it's much more volatile than gold. Last year the ratio was at 31 and a few months later it was at 57/58. That volatility is not for everybody, but if you can handle the volatility - own some silver. My general recommendation is that two-thirds gold, one-third silver and by the time this bull market is over, the silver component of your portfolio will have a higher currency value than the gold component of your portfolio because of the outperformance as a result of the decline in the gold-silver ratio. - in mineweb

James Turk : Gold still Underowned & Undervalued


GoldSeek Radio's Chris Waltzek talks to JAMES TURK - Feb 2, 2012 James Turk, founder of the GoldMoney Foundation talks about the recent correction in the price of gold from all time nominal highs of 1.923$ per troy ounce and discusses the implications. He points out that there hasn't been a 20% drop in the price of gold since 2008. James explains that these periodic liquidations are a normal part of gold's bull market. He then talks about the fundamentals and discusses gold's safe haven status. He talks about how gold suffers in a liquidity event because of the rush to cash and the need to realize profit, while outperforming all other assets. James Turk recommends seeing gold as a form of savings and accumulating while its undervalued, since the trend will go much higher, rather than attempting to trade it. He also discusses Lehman, Greece, Dexia and other significant market events.

Marc Faber : With money-printing, you never know what sector of the economy will be inflated

Marc Faber : "It is not that the gold price will go up. It is that the value of paper money will go down."
"Ten years ago we had relatively low inflation in the Western world. Now, with interest rates at zero, we have high asset valuations. Asset prices have gone ballistic in stamps, modern art, wine, you name it. Gold, silver, other commodities, equities in emerging markets, high-end real estate -- all have done well. When assets become like cash, it may be safer to hold your money in the bank. If asset prices collapse, you'll be better off in Treasury bills with zero yields. Then the central banks will print money and bail you out. At least you'll get your principal back. With money-printing, you never know what sector of the economy will be inflated. Maybe we have had profit inflation and there will be a severe correction. I don't expect corporate profits in the U.S. to collapse by more than 20% in the next 12 months."

James Turk : Gold is the Rock Star of Asset classes

James Turk in This Week in Money February 4th, 2012 : Gold is the Rock Star of Asset classes it has been increasing in value since 2001 , James Turk recommends to hold physical gold and silver bullion , not any kind of paper gold or silver , when you own paper gold or silver you do not own bullion , you own a financial asset that's an intangible asset based on someone's promise which means their capacity an willingness to actually deliver gold and silver in the future at a certain date , so you are exposed to a counter party risk , but when you own physical bullion whether it is gold or silver , you own a tangible asset and that's what you really want to own during a period of financial stress

Gold prices are set to explode in 2012 - Peter Schiff

Gold prices are set to explode in 2012 Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, says the stars are aligned for a gold rally.Schiff says he's "more optimistic about gold" this year than he's ever been and says all the shorts and newly turned gold bears will miss the imminent rally. Moreover, gold mining stocks (such as Newmont Mining and Barrick Gold Corp.) will finally play catch-up to gold, he says, meaning big returns for investors who have stayed with these stocks as they significantly lagged the precious metal."People who are using Treasuries as a safe haven are making a grave mistake if they don't get rid of their treasuries soon," he says.One of the biggest investment stories in 2011, gold ended the year up 10% - a sharp contrast compared to how U.S. stocks closed in 2011 - but a big drop-off from gold's September high of $1,920.30 an ounce. Gold had one of its worst fourth quarters in decades, losing 10% in the month of December alone.Gold has no price. Prices are a matter of currency values. Gold isn't volatile. The currency is.The CME has increased margin requirements twice for Silver and 6% for Gold long contracts to about 11% of the contract. Yet naked short positions need to have no physical holdings of Gold. This can only force the price of precious metals down . If you want to be long on Gold contracts you have to hold more dollars, if you want to be short on Gold you dont need any Gold at all to do so. Looks like the CME has taken over Precious metals price manipulation from J.P.Morgans & HSBC's prop traders. If the naked shorts of Gold & silver were forced to hold just a 6% inventory of the physical metal to back their trades there wouldn't be enough physical supply & the whole system would collapse, yet the CME insists overnight that holders of long contracts in Gold have to hold an extra 6% magin of worthless paper (money) to cover their long contracts. The gold price drops $80 in a week. The chicago mercantile exchange is the new J.P.Morgan precious metals manipulators. Buy only physical metals.

Marc Faber : Gold could fall another $200

Marc Faber : In the past 10 years gold and silver have performed superbly. The gold price overshot on the upside when it reached $1,921 an ounce on Sept. 6. Now it is in a correction phase and could fall another $200.

Boom time for Gold & Silver Miners

Boom time for Gold & Silver Miners .In recent years, increasing demand for mineral resources has pushed mining companies to go farther and deeper in search of new deposits.According to TrustedBullion, Mines in the United States produced 38,580,840 Oz in 2007 & 9,028,036 Silver Eagles were coined that year. Were those consumed? In 2009, 30,459,000 Eagles were coined. That's almost all of the output if production stayed the same as 2007. I suspect Silver Eagles are not the type of silver that gets consumed. The coining cost would be prohibitive. Entry levels mine jobs can pay up to 50K dollars a year even for someone right out of high school , They say the days when you could go from high school to a high--paying, blue--collar job are long gone. But there are places in the Northwest where those days still exist — that's if you're willing to work a mile underground. For gold and silver miners, it looks like boom times right now — rising salaries, more job opportunities. Even a recent lay off in north Idaho doesn't look like other lay offs. Jessica Robinson has this story that has seen the reverse side of the economic downturn. they can manipulate the price of gold and silver, but only for the short term. Eventually, the market will recognize the supply shortage and higher investment demand for both metal and revalue them higher.

There is an explosion in the the amount of physical gold buying around the world and especially in China. John Embry of Sprott Asset Management told mineweb recently : "You saw the number of the imports via Hong Kong into China for the last year - there were about 100 tonnes imported in November alone . If you think about that it's only about a 4,000 tonne market and in one month the Chinese import 100 tonnes. That's huge. They've been pretty forthright about saying and expressing their views on gold and other things and now they are taking action."

Peter Schiff : buy Gold the demise of the Dollar is imminent

Peter Schiff : buy Gold the demise of the Dollar is imminent , gold is the real safe heaven "Obviously just look at it , look at the trend , Gold is over $1600 an ounce , the media always wants to focus on the attention on the fact that it is off the high , it is not at $1900 , but how often is a market at its absolute high ? it's not like markets don't correct , gold is off its record high by less than the Dow Jones yet nobody keeps pointing that out , when you look at the long term trend the most recent correction from the highs it does not violate any trend line " " I think gold is going much higher I think we are going to make new all time highs in 2012 and continue to move higher in 2013 - 2014 , it is a major major bull marker it got a long way to go and you have more naysayers than participants "

Peter Schiff – interviewed by this week in money (14 January 2012 ) about where he sees the US dollar going " the dollar is not strong , it certainly has been less weak than the Euro recently , but both currencies are weak , gold tells you that , the price of gold is up not at a record yet but the trend is clear in the upward direction so I think both the dollar and the Euro are losing value currently the euro is losing it a little bit faster than the dollar , but I think in the long term the problems in the US are actually larger and more severe than the problems in Europe and I think are more dangerous to blow up in the short run so I think that the people are exaggerating the demise of the Euro not focusing on the more imminent demise of the dollar and in the process they are buying some extra time for the dollar because a lot of this European flight money is going into the US treasuries and that's allowing the US government to stimulate the economy more and the stimulus is the problem it is like a toxic drug and the more government stimulus we get the more sicker the real economy becomes "
