    By on February 3, 2016 | No Comments  Comments
    George Soros’ successful bet against the British pound back in 1992 remains one of financial history’s epic tales.

  • Higher Interest Rates? Not Next Month, Not Even Next ...
    By on September 19, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Not only did the Fed vote to keep interest rates stable yesterday, it did so overwhelmingly — with just as many members apparently favoring lower rates as higher. Now all the people who bought the “rate normalization” promise/threat are backtracking. From today’s Bloomberg: Expecting a Fed ...

    By on September 8, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Stocks and oil weren’t the only markets going berserk last week. Eurodollar, or EURUSD — the world’s biggest and most popular forex market — first rallied 700+ points (or pips) higher and then crashed about 500 pips back to earth, all in a matter of a few days. Watch this new...

    In his July 17th Blog, Let’s Get Real About Gold, author and Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Zweig likened investor interest in gold with the “Pet Rock” craze of the 1970’s, when consumers became convinced that a rock in a box would provide continuous companionship, eleva...

    The whole “market economy” thing is turning out to be a little trickier than China’s dictators expected. To set up the story: After the 2008 crash the country borrowed about $15 trillion (an amount that dwarfs the US Fed’s quantitative easing programs) and spent the proceeds on history’s b...
  • Central Banks Ready To Panic — Again

    Less than a decade after a housing/derivatives bubble nearly wiped out the global financial system, a new and much bigger commodities/derivatives bubble is threatening to finish the job. Raw materials are tanking as capital pours out of the most heavily-impacted countries and into anything that look...

    The splash that BitGold made recently by buying GoldMoney led many (including this writer) to assume that the Canadian start-up was pioneering the gold-backed currency space. But it turns out that Peter Schiff’s Euro Pacific Bank already allows non-US customers to buy gold and/or silver, store it ...

    Put differently, USDJPY is now trading at a 17-year high… but will it last? You’ll find many explanations in the news why the U.S. dollar is trading at the highest point against the Japanese yen since 2002. Most of them have one thing in common: They rationalize the move which has alrea...

    Do you remember what happened when Cyprus decided to defy the EU?  In the end, the entire banking system of the nation collapsed and money was confiscated from private bank accounts.  Well, the nation of Greece is now approaching a similar endgame.  At this point, the Greek government has not rec...
  • Interest Rates Spiking Everywhere
    By on May 20, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Just as ultra-low interest rates start to seem normal, the markets decide otherwise. US 10-year Treasury bonds yielded about 1.9% in April and are now above 2.20%: And the trend reversal isn’t limited to the US. Across Europe and Asia rates have spiked in the past month. From Bloomberg: What doe...

  • No Money, No Growth
    By on May 19, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Last August, the US Fed stopped creating new currency out of thin air and dumping it into the banking system. Which is another way of saying the US money supply stopped growing. Here’s the adjusted monetary base — a proxy for the amount of new currency the Fed is creating — over the past eight...
