Trifecta of Bubbles, All At Record Levels | Michael Pento

He discusses lies and distortions from the government and how to protect against financial crisis.

Precious Metals Will Be Manipulated Higher | Rick Rule

"Markets are bigger than politicians," says legendary investor Rick Rule. All markets are manipulated, he notes, and they are manipulated in the direction that the manipulators find it easiest to move. Rule expects that the trend from now on for metals will be up. "I believe that at some point in the future, the short-term manipulation that happens in the precious metals markets will be on the long, not the short side."

Gold Is The Solution To Monetary Lies & Theft | Newman

And in the financial realm, it is imperative to hold real assets in these times of deception.

This is the most bullish gold development that has happened in the last 10-years, he says.

Exchanges Close To Running Out Of Silver | Andy Schectman

Precious metals are being drained off of all three major exchanges: LBMA, COMEX, and Shanghai. There is a scramble for physical delivery from the exchanges, says Andy Schectman, CEO & president of Miles Franklin. The bullion banks are "trapped," he argues. The exchanges "are very close to running out of silver," he says. And metals in the East continue to trade at higher prices that in the West. This signals that metals continue to flow East. He discusses the decline of the Western empire and what it signals for the gold and silver going forward.

As Physical Supplies Dwindle, East Takes Control | Peter Krauth

Pricing power in the silver market is likely going to continue to move from West to East, says silver expert Peter Krauth. He discusses the recent rise in silver prices above the critical $30 level.

Crisis For Bullion Banks Amid Surging Metal Prices | Alasdair Macleod

Physical silver and gold are being drained from the major exchanges, and the bullion banks are losing control of the gold and silver prices, according to bullion researcher and former bank director Alasdair Macleod. This could lead to a crisis on the exchanges and a crisis for bullion banks. While the prices of precious metals have been manipulated in the West, the West has spread anti-gold propaganda, says Macleod. But the East has continued to accumulate, probably far more than what is officially reported. Gold is certainly going to reassert itself as money, he says, and the remonetization of gold will spell disaster for the Dollar.

Want to Know What’s Next for Silver? Watch Copper Now! | Craig Hemke

With more eyes turning to silver’s dramatic breakout through multiyear price resistance, investors who are wondering where silver is headed next may do well to look at what’s happening right now with copper, says economist Craig Hemke. Hemke claims that copper’s recent extraordinary price movement, and diversion of physical copper may be driven by critical shortages of the metal on the major exchanges in the face of persistent demand, and that investors may gain insight by watching the physical copper market right now to see what’s next for silver.

Bullion Banks Move Into Silver In Shanghai | Andy Schectman

Precious metals are breaking out of trading rages. The gold/silver ratio has broken down, which means silver is outperforming dramatically.

Retail Investors To Flood Market & Cause Massive Shortage | Don Durrett

While gold has broken to all-time highs and silver has broken above significant resistance, the retail investor has largely stayed out of the move. But if gold keeps running and silver trades to $35 and above, retail investors will pile into silver, says Don Durrett. As retailers are wiped out of product, Durrett expects 1000oz bars will be bought up and disappear. If silver keeps rising to $50 and above, the government could name silver as a "strategic metal," forcing liquidation of ETFs. For this reason, silver above $50 becomes quite risky, he says.

We Have More Power Than The Bankers | Rafi Farber

Silver broke above $30 last week and has held that level ever since. Silver is the "people's money." In the past, when the people wake up and lose faith in a paper currency system, silver moves dramatically higher, says Rafi Farber.

Surging Silver Prices Signals Currency Crisis Is Here | Mario Innecco

Silver has surged above $30 and gold above $2400. The stage is set for silver to move toward $50, likely by the end of the year, says Mario Innecco.

A currency crisis is here, he says.

Deflation As Economy Comes To A Halt | Michael Penton

Disinflation is coming, says portfolio manager Michael Pento, and even a short period of deflation is likely. Amid the economy coming to a halt, the Fed will have no other option than to inflate the currency supply. At that point, stagflation will become the new normal, he says. And stagflation - high inflation with a weak economy - has proven to be the ideal environment for gold.

Where Is Gold Demand Coming From? | Lobo Tiggre

Where is gold demand coming from? Retail demand is down and more small investors are even starting to sell back bullion. But big institutional players likely want physical metal at this time, argues the Independent Speculator Lobo Tiggre. Not only in the East, but also the West, big institutional money is likely becoming more interested in the yellow metal as a safe haven. When there is a Fed pivot, the retail investors will move into the market, forecasts Tiggre.

Why Gold Is Just Getting Started | Rick Rule

The gold run is far from over, says legendary investor Rick Rule. Unless the US sees a balanced budget, positive real interest rates, and an end of quantitative easing, "I'm not afraid of another 15-years of stagnant gold prices," he says. While gold is at nominal all-time highs, it is still far from its inflation adjusted high. He discusses investing in gold to maintain inflation-protected liquidity and also speculating on specific resource companies. Sign up for the (Virtual or In-Person!) Rule Symposium

Dollar In Terminal Decline; The "Experts" Are Failing Us | Andy Schectman

Inflation is not going away, says Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin Precious Metals. He argues "this pipe dream of a soft landing and lowering rates is off the table." The US dollar is in "terminal decline." While the US weaponizes its currency, other countries are slowly joining forces with one another and decreasing their dependence on the US. The only way to fund the US's massive deficits will be to print currency as many nations stop buying Treasuries, he forecasts.

Gold & Dollar Trading Signal The End Of Fiat Currency | Francis Hunt

The rise in gold is signaling disaster ahead, says The Market Sniper Francis Hunt. The US dollar used to be the main fear trade. However, real return on US Treasuries is massively negative if you use alternative measures of inflation. Investors are starting to see Treasuries as having a "risk premium of failure," Hunt notes. He says the "end of fiat currency" is coming and gold knows it.

Another Bank Failure; Crisis About To Get MUCH WORSE | Alasdair Macleod

The largest single holder of US debt is China. China and Russia are working to reduce their dependence on the Dollar. Gold has been moving from West to East. And the US likely doesn't have all the gold it claims to have. "This has got the makings for an absolute crisis for the West," says Alasdair Macleod. Gold's recent market trading has been unlike anything we've seen since the 1970s, he says. Gold has been rising amid rising interest rates and a rising Dollar. This signals a new fear of the future of credit itself, as the world’s flight to the safety of gold accelerates.

Shanghai Gold Exchange Bleeding Dry COMEX & LBMA | Andy Schectman

Another bank has failed: Republic First Bank. Many experts are concerned of more failures to come. Dedollarization continues as the East sees the risk of holding the Dollar. The East has started to repatriate gold from the United States. In addition, the Shanghai exchange as been pricing precious metals at a premium to the COMEX and LBMA. This has also led to metals moving East at a rapid pace. Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin joins us to discuss.

This Gold/Silver Bull Market Is Different - Here's Why | Michael Oliver

Gold, silver, and miners are likely to outperform the stock market and real estate, says Michael Oliver. Normally during a precious metals bull market there would be a top and then a bear market. But this time may be different he says. "I think the world is facing a monetary crisis, an economic crisis, a political crisis."

3rd Stage Of Silver Bull Has Started | David Morgan

David Morgan says the third phase and the most dramatic time in the precious metals bull market has started. As the traditional stock/bond/housing portfolio fails, there are few places for investors to flee. “There will be more frightened capital that will move out of the conventional investments and into the metals than ever before,” he says. He doesn’t see cryptocurrency as the solution to a failed monetary system and discusses the major flaws in Bitcoin.

All Assets (In The System) Will Be Stolen | Bill Holter

Bill Holter joins us to discuss what could happen in a worst case economic scenario. Assets remaining within the financial system are at risk, he says, and can legally be stolen to bailout (or bail-in) financial institutions. FDIC insurance means little, he notes, given that by the time depositors would receive their insured funds, the Dollar could be worthless. While many people are wary of investing in gold at these all-time high nominal prices, Holter says precious metals still provide insurance against financial chaos. In addition, he argues the bull market in gold and silver is just getting started.

2nd Round Of Inflation Is Here | Rafi Farber

Gold's rally is signaling more inflation ahead. The Fed is unlikely to cut rates amid increasing CPI. Regardless of what the Fed does, the Dollar's decline is ensured, says Rafi Farber of The End Game Investor. He expects silver to skyrocket as the public loses faith in the currency and run towards the "people's money."

System Collapse Could Happen OVERNIGHT | Gregory Mannarino

Demand for investments in the gold sector are likely to quadruple in the coming years. This increase would simply be a reversion to the mean, says legendary investor Rick Rule. He discusses the surprisingly fast way silver has caught up and started to outperform gold recently. But select mining stocks will likely outperform even silver in the coming years, says Rule. He discusses the principles that make it more likely for certain companies to succeed.

Controlled Destruction Of America; It's All Planned | Andy Schectman

Are government officials trying to create a systemic failure in the economy to roll out a reset? Incompetence is an inadequate explanation for the crises that are destabilizing America. From illegal immigration to dedollarization, these crises could be part of a plan many decades in the making. Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin details how many government officials have been influenced by a destructive ideology to reshape America.

Is This The Death Blow To Silver Manipulation? | Peter Grandich

The paper manipulation in the precious metals markets is under threat. The physical exchange in Asia is putting pressure on the Western exchanges. Prices in Asia are higher than in the West, and metals are flowing East. The paper manipulators are "certainly in retreat," says Peter Grandich. Gold has topped $2400 and silver is pushing toward $29.
