Rob McEwen: Your readers need to appreciate: Gold is money. It is currency. I think the number of people familiar with gold will grow as people see gold as a currency. China, India, Russia are buying gold to diversify their foreign reserves. To restore the confidence in currencies, I think some central banks, such as the Chinese and possibly the Russian, will increase their gold holdings to the level that the percentage of their total currency will be greater than that of any other currency in the world. At that point, they will assert that their currency should become the reserve currency of the world.

Dutch Secretly Withdrew 122 Tons Of Gold From The NY Fed

Gold Repatriation Stunner: Dutch Central Bank Secretly Withdrew 122 Tons Of Gold From The New York Fed
This is the stunning statement made by the Dutch Central Bank earlier today, and which, all compliments to China's rate cut, is truly the biggest news of the day, as it shows that one doesn't need a referendum to repatriate their gold, nor does one run into logistic or diplomatic problems if one is truly set on procuring their physical.

A week ago, we penned "The Real Reason Why Germany Halted Its Gold Repatriation From The NY Fed", in which we got, for the first time ever, an admission by an official source, namely the bank that knows everything that takes place in Germany - Deutsche Bank - what the real reason was for Germany's gold repatriation halt after obtaining a meager 5 tons from the NY Fed.

Some took offense with this, pointing out, accurately, that the gold held at the NY Fed in deposit form for foreign institutions had continued to decline into 2014 despite the alleged German halt. Well, today we know the answer: it wasn't Germany who was secretly withdrawing gold from the NYFed contrary to what it had publicly disclosed. It was the Netherlands.

As to why the DNB decided it was time to cut its gold held at the NY Fed by 122 tons? ""It is no longer wise to keep half of our gold in one part of the world," a DNB spokesman told Telegraaf. "Maybe it was desirable during the Cold War, but not now."

Who in their right mind trust their government with gold?

Besides, it makes it easier for the state to play games.

If you don't hold it, it's only their wealth, and they don't share.

Free includes debt-free!

Does this explain

the drama unfolding today in PM's?

The battle seems to be waging: the dollar index against the PMs.

The dollar continues upward driving the price of most commodities down. Metals are so low now that a lot more buying must be going on now than selling, thereby increasing their price. There is a battle going on between what is real, and what is not.

Report blasts US banks’ physical commodities operations

Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley exposed themselves to catastrophic financial risks, environmental disasters and potential market manipulation by investing in oil, metals and power plant businesses, according to a Senate report.

In its report, the subcommittee also criticized regulators for taking insufficient action to rein in the banks’ commodity businesses. Federal Reserve governor Dan Tarullo, who heads regulatory policy, is scheduled to testify in front of the Senate on Friday.


I doubt the Senate or the FED is going to do anything about this, but still interesting, and what's weird is all the print media is on this story, as if its something new that nobody could have imagined!

Total bull trap in gold the

Total bull trap in gold the last few days. Blatant manipulation to suck in more gold bulls before the trap door is pulled.

I'm going to start a short in the GDXJ over the next few days, and then when gold reaches my target of ~800/oz I'll be a bull again.

This trade is about to get choppy though, lots of eyes on gold right now.


I think this rally may go a little further than you think. Don't get me wrong, I think we will reach your $800 target (and probably quite a bit lower) before we see new highs again, but there's a good chance this rally will carry another $200-$300 higher (in gold)before turning back down again.

I'm about to get stopped out

I'm about to get stopped out here if it takes out $30. Choppity chop, maybe it's better to stay away for now with so many eyes on it.

OK, pardon my "french"

but what the fk is going on with the algorithms today with both gold and silver between 10am and 12:15am? This is ridiculous. These are not market fundamentals at work.

This has to do with leaked info about upcoming Swiss Referendum.

It appears the FX and Precious Metals markets have as much faith in the pre-Swiss Gold Referendum polls as the Scots did before their referendum. The clearly leaked results sparked considerable weakness in gold and silver (and EURCHF surge), but once the data was released, markets began to creep back - perhaps questioning the plausibility of such a big swing in such a short amount of time.
posted comment:
"The Swiss are voting to determine if gold has value. No wonder the potential impact if the vote should fail."

China opens up $4.2tn stock market to world via Hong Kong

The Chinese mainland is now open for business, at least in terms of its $4.2 trillion capital market. The Shanghai and Hong Kong stock exchanges are now linked giving foreign investors access to the tightly-controlled Chinese capital markets.

Stock Connect debuted on November 17, and for the first time, stocks on both markets can be traded freely, a major step in China’s roadmap to liberalize its economy.

The landmark agreement will give international investors a lot more options- 568 Shanghai-listed stocks and 268 Hong Kong-listed companies. Foreign investors will be exempt from paying taxes on capital gains (CGT). Previously, the trading of mainland Chinese stocks on the Hong Kong exchange was restricted to a few “qualified" investors.

Silver up .50 today

My guess the mint is ready to start selling eagles again.

When to pull trigger on silver

I want to obtain 1000 oz and chill. Will it depreciate further?

Whats a reliable place with the lowest premiums?

Work your way in instead of

Work your way in instead of going all out on Silver. It is currently in a downwards trend there is a possibility that it has yet to bottom but it is currently on sale so its up to you.

You could just hedge...

...by buying 500oz. now and see if it falls further. I suspect it will get crushed in early trading Sunday night erasing today's gains, but I could be wrong. One thing's for sure: it will be much higher two years from now.

Silver is up $0.50 today.

Hindsight is always 20/20. Make sure of your decision, and just do it, imo.

Russia Buys 55 Tonnes of Gold in Q3

Putin "Prepares For Economic War", Buys Whopping 55 Tonnes Of Gold In Q3

Russia has taken advantage of lower gold prices to pack the vaults of its central bank with bullion as it prepares for the possibility of a long, drawn-out economic war with the West.

The latest research from the World Gold Council reveals that the Kremlin snapped up 55 tonnes of the precious metal - far more than any other nation - in the three months to the end of September as prices began to weaken.

Sooo... is it a good time to invest in silver?

I have about 600 'dollars' and have been thinking about starting to invest...any insights? Thanks!


For Silver any thing under $100. is a great buy!

Silver Eagles have always been a good choice. I think the majority minted go over seas. Their value always goes up the next year after the mint ends the run.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

This is just a thought.....

This is just a thought, and I claim no factual evidence, but is it possible that the US has its hands on an enormous amount of gold?

Whether we believe it's there or not, doesn't the US claim to have over 8000 tonnes of gold?

On top of that, is it possible that we have acquired:

1. Iraqi gold from the Iraq wars?

2. Libyan gold from the Qaddafi invasion?

3. US occupation of Afghanistan and it's newly discovered massive un-mined gold in the ground.

4. The supposed 946,000 tonnes of secret WWII gold that was acquired during the war.

5. The fact that we hold gold for many countries and are not really giving it back. For example, I believe we hold about 45% of Germany's gold.

Is it possible the US still has itself set up nicely in the event of a gold backed currency? Hey everyone, look, we have the most gold, we have opened up our oil reserves and we have our mighty military.

It was just a thought. Either way, does anyone really think we are going to go down without blaming "them" for our economic problems, making a a hot war inevitable? To the winner goes the spoils?

I took your

I took your questions more as statements. That's what I've been thinking all along, though not because they will ever return to gold-backed currency.

But I still believe bit coin was designed to eliminate physical wealth.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Yes. Just stating some of my thoughts.

Always cover all the angles.

I don't think they want to return to a gold backed currency either, but if they do have all that gold or are trying to replace what's no longer in Fort Knox, or whatever their reason is, if they do have that much, I'm interested in why they do.
