A Rigged Game

Snippet:  What would you say if I told you that a batter had hit 1.000 for an entire season? Or that a pitcher threw no-hitters every time he played a game? I’m pretty sure you would say that’s impossible or that something was definitely wrong. And, of course, you would be correct – somethings are […]

Only Gold Lasts Forever

This current state of play won’t last forever. Only Gold lasts forever  Some days it can feel a little rough being a gold investor. In today’s article Dominic Frisby is certainly feeling that way.

A Short Holiday For The Capital Spectator

Summer is here, the livin’ is easy (even if it’s still expensive), and the temptation to play hooky is too strong to resist. But the bills must be paid eventually and so this brief respite ends when the usual routine returns on Monday, June 26. Cheers! Source: The Capital Spectator

Greenback Goes Nowhere Quickly, While Yen Remains Bid

 The summer doldrums begin early.  The US dollar is little changed against most of the major currencies.  Bond yields are mostly one-two basis points lower, and equity markets are mixed but with a downside bias.     Oil prices slump more than 2% on Tuesday and again on Wednesday.  Thisis weighing on bond yields and equities.   […]

Left wing, right wing, and free markets

One of the saddest things about Britain’s recent general election was the level of ignorance displayed by all parties on the broad subject of political economics. I use the term to include both political philosophy and pure economic theory. Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish Nationalists seem to think free markets are right-wing. The […]

The Melbourne-based group, the world’s largest miner, cut its dividend in February […]

Gold and Silver Are "Asymmetric" Trades

An asymmetric trade is a situation where investing a relatively small amount of money holds the potential of yielding a profit many times the amount of the original sum at risk. In other words, where the risk to reward is skewed massively in the direction of reward. This took place recently with Bitcoin (BTC). Is […]

RUSSIA vs. USA: Where’s The Gold?

As the United States continues to push towards a military conflict with Russia, there will likely be no real winner when the dust settles. However, if we compare the these two superpowers in the current “gold market”, the Russians are the clear winners. While the U.S. has been (secretly) liquidating its once massive official gold […]

Gauging The Economic Impact Of Uber

Uber has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over these past couple months. I’m sure you’ve seen or heard the headlines. From sexual harassment, to discrimination, to “Greyball” – software that helped Uber drivers evade law enforcement. Everything seems to be imploding for Uber.

Dollar Update

The U.S. dollar has held up better than expected, says technical analyst Clive Maund, as he discusses its downside potential.
