India Gold Demand Surges 450% and Bank of Russia Demand At 15 Year High

It is safe to say that – in the event of a global monetary crisis brought on by a tsunami of insurmountable QE compounded debt – the average Indian or Chinese family will be reasonably well equipped to weather the financial and monetary storm.

The same cannot be said, unfortunately, for their Western counterparts where ownership of tangible assets is abysmally low and only a tiny fraction of the population own gold and silver bullion. (more…)

“Save Our Swiss Gold ” – Game Changer For Gold?

We believe that the “Save Our Swiss Gold” campaign has the potential to be a game changer in the gold market – both in terms of the ramifications for the current global monetary system and in terms of higher gold prices.

There has been a lack of coverage of this important story and there is therefore a lack of awareness about the possible implications for the gold market. Thus, in the weeks prior to the referendum on November 30th, we are going to analyse the referendum, the important context to the referendum and the ramifications of a yes or a no vote. Mark O’Byrne, Head of Research GoldCore (Essential Guide To Gold and Silver Storage In Switzerland)

Global Equity Shock as “Captured” System Starts to Crack

Many commentators believe that the central banks and regulators have become captive to political and specific industry interests, we would agree. What is even more troubling is the degree to which the markets themselves have become centralised in their outlook. For example, In the last number of years an enormous amount of the world’s capital market asset basis is increasingly be managed by ONE single company and or directed by the services provided by Blackrock’s “Alladin” system. Indeed The Economist magazine believes that “Alladin” monitors and supports upwards of 30,000 investment portfolios and assists in the direction of over 17 Trillion dollars in assets.  That is 7% of the worlds total. This is sheer lunacy.

‘Helicopter Yellen’ Sends Stocks, Gold, Silver Soaring

For more than 5 years now the Fed has been ‘jawboning’ markets and threatening to rise interest rates and return to more normal monetary policies. We have consistently warned that it is important to watch what central banks do, rather than what they say – as they frequently conflict. Indeed, even what they say can conflict and it is often dissembling and some would say designed to confuse and mislead market participants. 

Copious amounts of monetary whiskey have been downed in the global economy and yet the recovery remains weak at best. The mother of all monetary hangovers awaits us all and will likely manifest in stagflation and sharply higher inflation.  This underlines the vital importance of having an allocation to gold in a diversified portfolio.

All the focus has rightly been on the medical implications of the disease and the tragic human consequences. So far, there has been little attention on the financial and economic consequences of a pandemic.
Global economic growth remains weak and vulnerable and the global financial system remains very fragile. The ebola virus has the potential to be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel’s back.
The outbreak and spread of Ebola is a worrying development and should remind people and companies, the world over, to be aware of the risks and be prepared.
