Currency debasement, GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod argues today, can't succeed as economic stimulus because it only impoverishes people. Macleod's commentary is headlined "The Wages-Fuel-Demand Fallacy" and it's posted at GoldMoney here:

Natural law and economic law are with gold, but laws no longer apply

Thu, 08/28/2014 - 12:42

11:57a ET Thursday, August 28, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Examining the astounding and continuing downward trend of interest rates that has brought some rates into negative territory, the TF Metals Report's Turd Ferguson postulates today that gold and silver prices won't be going any lower, regardless of the charting done by technical analysts. Ferguson's commentary is headlined "ZIRP Morphs to NIRP" and it's posted at the TF Metals Report here:

http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/6077/zirp-morphes-nirp

Of course Ferguson is right about what ordinarily has been the inverse relationship of gold prices and real interest rates. That relationship was described by the 1988 academic study by Harvard University economics professor Lawrence Summers and University of Michigan economics professor Robert Barsky, "Gibson's Paradox and the Gold Standard":

http://www.gata.org/node/1373

(Yes, Summers went on to run the U.S. Treasury Department, where his knowledge of gold pricing seems to have come in handy.)

But then Western central bank policy long has been to defeat ordinary market forces -- indeed, in recent years Western central bank policy has been to prevent any markets from happening at all:

http://www.gata.org/node/6241

This policy is what even some central bankers themselves now call "financial repression":

http://www.gata.org/node/10839

So while negative real interest rates may tend to support gold prices and asset prices generally, they also may be accompanied by still more "financial repression," particularly against the monetary metals, currencies that compete with and threaten government currencies and bonds.

Central bank gold sales and leasing, the underpinnings of the world's fractional-reserve gold banking system, whereby huge amounts of imaginary "paper" gold are created to nullify gold's scarcity and suppress its price, were always plainly mechanisms of "financial repression" to defend currencies and government bond prices. So amid the descent into negative real interest rates, what is to prevent central banks from underwriting still more "paper" gold for price suppression?

Such a policy probably could be defeated only by 1) mass exposure, which would require the mainstream financial news media to stop averting its gaze and to resolve to hold government to account; 2) a major sovereign foreign-exchange surplus holder's decision to switch its surplus heavily and abruptly into gold to strike a political blow; or 3) by the simple exhaustion of the gold reserves of the nations participating in gold price suppression, the circumstances that collapsed the last acknowledged mechanism of price suppression, the London Gold Pool, in March 1968:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Gold_Pool

The point here is that natural, economic, and even societal laws are disintegrating throughout the world under the pressure of what is essentially totalitarianism, the totalitarianism of central banking, which thrives only because, like the new clothes of the emperor in the fairy tale, it cannot be acknowledged for what it is -- cannot even be examined and questioned.

Gold Switzerland interview: Alasdair Macleod on the reasons for owning gold

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 23:46

10:46p ET Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod, interviewed by financial journalist Lars Schall for Matterhorn Asset Management's Gold Switzerland, offers what he considers the three primary reasons for owning gold. But just as interesting, Macleod argues that the London gold market is declining because of its lack of transparency, that gold will remain money if only because Asia increasingly says so, that countries are beginning to realize that they cannot be independent if they rely on the U.S. dollar and U.S.-controlled payment systems, and that Germany's Bundesbank has made itself ridiculous by its inability to recover its gold from custody by the United States.

Schall's interview with Macleod is 17 minutes long and can be viewed at Gold Switzerland here:

FT still can only hint at market rigging by central banks

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 12:49

11:49p ET Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In the conclusion of a series of articles about "asset bubbles," today's Financial Times shows that it is fully aware of market manipulation by central banks but still can't bring itself to put those words together in the same sentence, nor to mention gold in that context.

From today's article, written by the FT's Ralph Atkins:

"Investors have seen central bankers suppressing market volatility; the VIX index of expected U.S. share price movements, known as the 'Wall Street fear gauge,' is at a seven-year low. ...

"With their massively expanded balance sheets, central banks have come to dominate many markets, replacing the private sector. ..."

Too bad that the series ends short of any specification of the most sensitive market central banks are dominating. But mainstream financial journalism in the West can go only so far. Apparently mere hints are supposed to be considered heroic.

Central Bankers Face 'Confidence Bubble'

By Ralph Atkins
Financial Times, London
Wednesday, August 27, 2014

http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/dbd40702-29dc-11e4-914f-00144feabdc0.html

Frothy financial markets, asset prices at perilous highs, cautious investors pushed to take ever bigger risks -- the side effects of central bank actions since the collapse of Lehman Brothers investment bank in late 2008 have been considerable. Little wonder there has been enough talk of asset "bubbles" for a Financial Times series.

Central banks, which saved the global economy from catastrophe, now face different challenges. They have to return advanced economies to stable and sustainable growth paths. But can they do that without fresh financial market disruption? What if economies instead splutter and bubbles burst? What if there is a "bubble" in confidence in central bankers?

"Financial markets have been consistently rewarded for believing central banks are their best friends. At some point those rewards have to be validated by fundamentals," warns Mohamed El-Erian, chief economic adviser to Allianz.

Over the past six years, betting on the "central bank put" -- a belief that central banks would ride to financial markets' rescue -- was hugely profitable. The FTSE All world index is up 150 per cent since March 2009; the US S&P 500 is up 200 per cent.

Ben Bernanke, former US Fed chairman, drew on his expertise of depression era economics. In Europe, Mario Draghi, European Central Bank president, prevented a eurozone break-up by pledging "whatever it takes" to preserve its integrity. Haruhiko Kuroda, the Bank of Japan's governor, is now trying to drag his country out of decades of deflation.

Investors have seen central bankers suppressing market volatility; the Vix index of expected US share price movements, known as the "Wall Street fear gauge," is at a seven-year low. When there were setbacks in the "normalisation" process, central banks have acted; the Fed learnt from last year's "taper tantrum", the upset created globally when it first hinted at plans to scale-back quantitative easing, or asset purchases.

In the process, the nature of central banking has changed. "Central bankers feel pretty chuffed about their performance during the crisis years, and have every right to be," says David Kelly, chief global strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management. "They all come from the school of thought that monetary policy has limits, but they seem to have forgotten what they learnt. The whole consensus about a conservative approach has gone out of the window."

It is not a position with which central bankers necessarily feel comfortable. They have pushed for politicians to implement structural reforms -- often unsuccessfully -- and are aware that they have only a few tools, essentially their control over interest rates and regulatory powers. "I would not like to be a central banker at the moment because most finance ministers have said to them 'you're our last chance, don't muck it up,'" says John Nugee, a former Bank of England official who now advises central banks.

Mr El-Erian adds: "We have never been here before in terms of the amount of responsibility they have taken with such imperfect policy instruments."

Navigating the world's biggest economies into safe waters will require technical skills and smart judgment. With their massively expanded balance sheets, central banks have come to dominate many markets, replacing the private sector. A worry is that markets have become dependent on central banks. Mr Nugee says: "Central banks are the plaster cast around the market; they support it because it cannot support itself. If we take the cast away, we don't know if the market will have healed sufficiently."

Central banks have taken on bank supervisory functions and "macroprudential" powers to avert systemic crises. The extra responsibilities have increased their leverage -- but also the dangers of policy objectives clashing and of central banks losing crucial credibility when things go wrong.

Meanwhile, scrupulous judgment will be required in timing the first moves towards tightening monetary policies; the Bank of England is widely expected to be the first to raise interest rates.

A big worry is that the global efforts of central banks have still to create sufficient economic growth -- and equity markets have gone too far in pricing in a recovery. "Either the market has to correct, to converge toward a fundamental situation that remains challenging, or the macroeconomic situation has to improve," warns Gilles Moëc, senior economist at Deutsche Bank.

The other school of thought is that it is the central banks that will fall behind the curve. Some fear the Fed has underestimated improvements in US labour markets and inflation dangers. "There is a level of complacency within global fixed income markets about the ability of central banks to keep long term interest rates low," says Mr Kelly. "If they act cautiously, they are going to overcook the economy -- and eventually have to raise interest rates faster than they expect."

Betting central bankers will get it right is not for the fainthearted.

London Metal Exchange dismissed from U.S. price-fixing lawsuits

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 09:21

By Jonathan Stempel
Reuters
Tuesday, August 26, 2014

NEW YORK -- A judge has dismissed London Metal Exchange Ltd as a defendant from U.S. antitrust litigation accusing banks and commodity companies of conspiring to drive up aluminum prices by restricting supply, hurting manufacturers and purchasers.

In a decision made public on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan concluded that the LME was an "organ" of the UK government, and therefore immune from the lawsuit under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.

Forrest acknowledged that her decision may at first glance seem "somewhat surprising and counterintuitive," noting that the LME is a privately-held, for-profit company subject to extensive regulation. But she said the relevant case law "tips decidedly" toward a grant of immunity, noting that the LME is required by law to perform "the decidedly public function of market regulation" ...

GATA secretary to speak at London's Mines and Money conference in December

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 16:55

3:56p ET Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Your secretary/treasurer will speak at the Mines and Money conference in London in December and will try to convey the essence of the Western central bank gold price suppression scheme to the many mining and investment company executives attending without putting them in a position where they might have to acknowledge having listened.

Not that GATA will be completely without friends among the conference speakers, such as Ned Naylor-Leyland of Cheviot Asset Management, Egon von Greyerz of Matterhorn Asset Management, Rod Whyte of Whyte & Associates, and Mark Wellesley Wood, former chairman of Durban Roodeport Deep, as well as a few others who probably would prefer not to be identified.

... Dispatch continues below ...

Own Allocated And -- Most Importantly -- Segregated Bullion

If you do not own segregated physical coins and bars that you can take delivery of, you do not own bullion. International diversification remains key, and Hong Kong, Singapore, and of course Zurich remain the safest locations for owning and storing segregated bullion.

Check out "The Seven Key Storage Must-Haves" here:

The Mines and Money London conference will be held from Monday through Friday, December 1-5, at the Business Design Centre in London's Islington section. Dozens of resource companies will be exhibiting. Indeed, the Mines and Money conferences are probably the most intensive and detailed conferences in the mining industry.

There is a substantial discount on the admission fee for participants who register before September 5.

To learn more about the conference and to register for it, please visit its Internet site here:

http://www.minesandmoney.com/london/

In the week following the conference your secretary/treasurer plans to make a presentation to a meeting of the German Precious Metals Association in Munich, and while he is in Europe he would be glad to consider making other presentations to groups that were not afraid to be caught discussing gold price suppression with him, including mainstream financial news organizations, if there are any. He can be reached at CPowell@GATA.org.

Alasdair Macleod: The Shanghai Cooperation Organization and Mackinder's prophecy

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 15:32

2:30p ET Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The coalescing of Asia, led by China and Russia, into an economic bloc determined to get rid of the U.S. dollar for trade settlement is, GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod writes, the greatest threat to the economic power of the United States particularly and the West generally. Macleod adds that the accumulation of gold reserves by this bloc, which has formed the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, is a clue as to what the ascending nations consider money. Macleod's commentary is headlined "SCO and Mackinder's Prophecy" and it's posted at GoldMoney here:

Clive Maund: Will U.S. break Russia to maintain dollar hegemony?

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 12:35

11:30a ET Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

While his speculation goes pretty far, with his commentary this week financial letter writer explains clearly a point that GATA long has been trying to make -- that the use of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency is the primary mechanism of imperialism, akin to the currency market rigging used by Nazi Germany to loot occupied Europe during World War II, and that the ongoing currency war is a war for control of the world. Gold is a major battleground in that war.

Bradian, B.C., Former Mining Town, Up for Sale

From the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Toronto
Friday, August 22, 2014

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/bradian-b-c-former-mining...

If property prices are getting you down, you could become the proud owner of an entire town for about the same price as a home in a big city like Vancouver or Toronto.

Bradian, British Columbia -- 22 houses sitting on 20 hectares -- is on the market for just under $1 million.

And while most ghost towns are fairly remote, Bradian is only about 109 kilometres north of Whistler, British Columbia.

Realtor John Lovelace says there has been lots of interest since he put up the listing.

“We’ve just been inundated," he told CBC Radio's "On the Coast" during a recent interview. "I think there's been somewhere between 30 and 35 calls, emails, and texts."

The seller is a family who used Bradian as a place to take holidays and work on the buildings.

Lovelace says it was a great family bonding experience, but the children are grown and the family now wants to pass the property to somebody else.

But, he warns, while the location is one of the most beautiful, scenic areas in British Columbia, the town is a fixer-upper on a big scale.​

"There's a great deal of work that has to be done."

Lovelace says the homes are in pretty rough shape.

"They were abandoned back around 1970, and the issue is that they had some decay and water ingress, and the main infrastructure insofar as the sewers and all that were built to 1931 standards," he said.

"Don't bring a paint can and a paint brush and expect to double your money, because this is a long-term initiative and the purchase price would probably be the least of your expenses."

Bradian was built by the owners of a gold mine in neighbouring Bralorne that shut down 30 years ago. But Lovelace says the gold mine recently started up again.

"I think they have 60 people back working there. So there’s still gold in them there hills."

Eurozone opens doors to QE as Germany and France stumble

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 21:55

By James Titcomb
The Telegraph, London
Monday, August 25, 2014

The eurozone has moved closer to adopting further radical measures to ward off a second recession and a spiral of deflation after its two biggest economies fell deeper into trouble yesterday.

The dual shock of a French government reshuffle and weaker-than-expected German figures yesterday threatened to add to the malaise in the eurozone, where unemployment remains stubbornly high and growth is at a standstill.

Somewhat counterintuitively, this resulted in stock markets across Europe surging and government borrowing costs falling to new lows as traders reacted to indications that Mario Draghi, the European Central Bank president, may be opening the door for large-scale asset purchases and further cuts to interest rates. ...

James McShirley: Silver is almost always knocked down at 6 p.m. ET

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 14:36

1:30p ET Monday, August 25, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Market analyst and GATA consultant James McShirley calls attention today to the almost constant knockdown of the silver futures price upon the 6 p.m. Eastern time opening of the access market.

McShirley writes: "Virtually every evening for the last three years at precisely 6 p.m. ET something very odd has happened: Comex silver offers swamped the bids to the tune of a 3-10 cent decline. For this to happen for three consecutive weeks would be strange. If it were to happen for three straight months it would be bizarre. Only MOAMOPE -- Mother of All Management of Perspective Economics -- can describe when it occurs for three straight years. ...

"Silver has had a near-iron clamp imposed on it commencing with the access trade reopen. How severe is this iron clamp? From September 1, 2011, to the present, 621 out of the 744 6 p.m. access trade opens have been lower. All manipulation denialists take note: That's an astounding 83.5 percent."

McShirley's commentary is headlined "The MOAMOPE" and it's posted at GoldSeek here:

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Gold market letter writer Toby Connor's latest commentary acknowledges that technical analysis doesn't work with the price of gold anymore because of heavy manipulation by "the powers in the paper market." Connor's commentary is headlined "Manipulation Is Still Alive and Well in the Gold Market" and it's posted at his Internet site, Gold Scents, here:

Sun, 08/24/2014 - 11:42

By Lisa Demer
Alaska Dispatch, Anchorage
Saturday, August 23, 2014

DONLIN GOLD WORK CAMP, Alaska -- On a remote ridge in the big, open space between Bethel and Anchorage, where the land and minerals are owned by Alaska native corporations, developers want to cut deep into the earth to extract microscopic bits of gold.

The Donlin Gold project is moving quietly forward. Backers are seeking key government permissions and trying to secure the trust of local residents.

Developers say the mine's design will be the safest, most stable possible. A wealth of good jobs would open up in cash-starved western Alaska if Donlin is developed, project sponsors say.

Still, the nature of large-scale gold mining incites anxiety and doubt among people who depend on the land and water as their sources of food. ...

Gene Arensberg: Swap dealers' gold shorts could be spark for squeeze

Sat, 08/23/2014 - 22:20

9:16p ET Saturday, August 23, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The Got Gold Report's Gene Arensberg writes tonight that the most likely potential cause of a short squeeze in the monetary metals is the large short position being maintained by "swap dealers" in gold futures. Arensberg's commentary is headlined "If a Precious Metals Squeeze Develops, Look to Swap Dealer Gold Positions as a Cause" and it's posted at the GGR here:
