U.S. Mortgage Debacle Revisited

Let me ask you a question. What would happen if you did the following? You built a portfolio of successful investments predicated on one single set of underlying “AAA” securities. Let us assume that your entire portfolio was booming based on this underlying grouping of assets and you could share your portfolio with friends globally, and, if you will, even sell these investments to them.

The U.S. Dollar is in Trouble

Do a search for “U.S. Dollar is in Trouble” on Google and watch what comes up: 127 million hits. From CNBC to Reuters, Rense to Zero Hedge, mainstream sites to unconventional sites alike, you can clearly see the amount of rhetoric that is out there regarding the possibility of the U.S. dollar weakening. What you do not see too frequently are articles deliberating the notion of the U.S. dollar ... Read More...

 

Do You Believe the Published Inflation Rate, or Do You Know Better?

Economists today exclude food and energy from their “core” inflation statistics, as if no one has to eat or drive anywhere. In January, I will embark upon my yearly trek to grab a “basket of groceries”— some 20 or so items that include the normal things that we use, from orange juice to cereal, milk to eggs and so on, and report on the Year over Year costs. Don’t be surprised if they a... Read More...

 

Financial Media: Laughter, Tears, Frustration and Exhaustion

Kurt Vonnegut once said: “Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion.” When it comes to watching the financial media discuss the “rosiness” of the U.S. economy, frustration and exhaustion are two words that definitely come to mind.
Prediction based on fundamentals is a truly basic concept for analysts in the world of finance. Unfortunately this task has bec... Read More...

 

Silver Fundamentals and Rational for Increasing Value

There is a dying amount of square hectares of accessible mineable ground in the modern world. From the Rocky Mountains to Zacatecas, or the Antamina mines to Northern Ontario, precious little amounts of raw real estate that has not yet been searched for silver bullion remain. Prospectors' holes dot the mountains and the barren landscapes of almost every major country, and upon each argentiferous f... Read More...

 

The Bullion Bull Is About to Run

Let’s cut to the chase. Gold and silver are about to embark on a wonderful spree of new highs. I have never had a crystal ball, and do not like to irrationally speculate on the market unless there are fundamental reasons to support a change in price one way or another.
However, my rational over the last little while has been altered by witnessing some of the most manufactured (in my opi... Read More...

 

Gold, Silver and Common Sense Investing

There are many pieces to the investment puzzle. Some we know, but the most important pieces are unknown to the great majority. All one can do is to continually monitor events and adjust accordingly. The best predictor of the future has always been past monetary cycles. For over 3000 years, the most reliable asset for wealth protection has been physical gold and silver bullion. Mainstream news d... Read More...

 

Canada’s Housing Market: Being Blind to the Reality

If future prosperity is a direct consequence of present decisions/actions, then it is certifiable how quickly we latch onto false narratives or narrative of hope without basis in reality. What is the motivating factor that allows investors to dispel critical thinking in favor of acceptance of an endless pageant of data manipulations and ruses that will claim to magically produce a reliable and con...

Silver Fix - What Is It and Why Is It Important?

The London Gold and Silver Fixing Companies set the prices for both gold and silver on a daily basis. The LBMA is responsible for the Gold Forward Offering Rate (GOFO) benchmark prices. These prices are globally regarded as the international benchmark for pricing of a variety of bullion transactions and products. Since 1897, the London Silver Fix has been negotiated each trading day at noon thr... Read More...

 

Geopolitics and Supply/Demand Firing On All Cylinders for Gold

July has been an interesting month for Gold bullion. It reached a 3 month high over the past 3 weeks and investors appear once again to ostensibly be warming up to the shiny metal. Two of the greatest signs for demand in the yellow metal right now are coming from the reinvigorated pace of buying, especially in the worl... Read More...

 

Financial Well Being in the 21st Century

During the past number of years, I have had the opportunity to speak in front of many groups. Quite often the majority of these speaking engagements were designed to share information on Gold, Silver and Natural Fancy Color Diamonds and were hosted by our firm, Guildhall. Recently I had an opportunity to speak with a group of interested investors who also had a keen sense of interest in wellbeing.... Read More...

 

Allow Me to Reintroduce You to Silver and Gold…

In this so often ungraceful world of money we are getting the opportunity to witness a coming of age.  A story filled with bobs and weaves, peaks and valleys moments of joy and years of sorrow the likes of which are book worthy.  An opportunity so grand that simply having a small piece could be enough to invigorate even the most flaccid of portfolios, perhaps even financially prepare us for reti...

A Sinking Boat Without A Life Raft In A Sea Of Sharks
- Can You Survive?

If you have not already figured it out, witnessed it for yourself, read about it, or otherwise experienced it firsthand, the developed world is swimming in debt in a proverbial sea of sharks without a life raft anywhere to be found. If we have learned nothing about ourselves since 2008 we should now at bare minimum know this. There are really only two viable options or outcomes to the furtive poli... Read More...

 

Silver: A Contrarian Viewpoint

I have never been one to stick to the status quo.  In fact the very precipice of what I do on a daily basis pegs me as the great confederate of optimism and the contrarian approach to everyday rationale and investing.  No more could this be the case then in the example of Silver Bullion investing. Silver has been in a bear market (within a secular bull market) for some time now, being down an... Read More...

 

Imprudent Reactions and False Hopes

I love imprudent reactions.  In fact when it comes to silver bullion there have been plenty of days in which I have witnessed tremendous kneejerk reactions.  In the past 40 months seemingly these kneejerk reactions have often been centred on some sort of "goldilocks" framework, and spun in headlines about the US econo...

2014 Retrospective and 2015 Outlook for Gold and Silver

For all the predictions in 2014, it was yet another year we managed to get most things about the world economy wrong. 2014 did not prove to be the year the world roared back to the path of recovery. Global economic output grew by just 3.3 percent, an expansion that was dubbed by the IMF's (International Monetary Fund) chief economist as “mediocre and worse than forecast." The outlook for 2015...
