Why Rick Rule Bought $280M of Platinum and Palladium / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

When Rick Rule pairs lower grades, labor strife and inefficient mines with the relentless demand for platinum and palladium, his result is an investment thesis that could pay off for bullion and equity investors. In his Metals Report interview, the founder and chairman of Sprott Global Resource Investments Ltd. compares the current platinum and palladium space to the uranium sector 10 years ago, and predicts handsome returns for investors willing to shoulder the risk.

 

The Metals Report: Your report, Platinum and Palladium, predicts a 915,000-ounce (915 Koz) deficit in platinum and palladium this year. Does your investment thesis treat the platinum group metals (PGMs) more as precious or industrial metals?

Bullish on Oil Prices? Two Reasons You Might Change Your Mind / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: The_Energy_Report

The downturn beginning in 2008 triggered a macroeconomic meltdown that would disrupt all markets, domestic and global. Demand for petroleum diminished just as new technologies were beginning to gush out oil and gas in never-before-seen volumes, creating a perfect storm that would depress prices. Now that oil prices have rebounded, is the worst behind us? In this interview with The Energy Report, Director of Energy Research Marshall Adkins of Raymond James & Associates discusses the events of the last five years and the near-term prospects for energy-related investments.

Recent Action in Silver ETFs Is Bad News for Precious-Metals Bears / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

Two weeks ago we looked at the difference between gold ETF outflows vs. physical gold purchases, and showed that most sales were coming from the former while aggressive buying was coming from the latter.

This week we examined the same data for silver – and discovered a rather striking trend. Not only are silver ETFs seeing no net outflows, their holdings are increasing. Bearish investors who treat the two precious metals as being the same, interchangeable thing, and sell silver along with gold are at risk of missing the boat.

Why Are Silver Prices Falling When Demand for Coins is White-Hot? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Money_Morning

William Patalon writes: It's one of the biggest mysteries in finance right now.

I mean, it's a real head-scratcher ...

On one hand, demand for silver coins has been off the charts. With so many investors wanting to swap currency for silver, neither the U.S. Mint nor the Royal Canadian Mint has been able to keep up with purchase requests.

Gold Investors Evaporate as North Korea Tensions Rise / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

U.S. DOLLAR prices to buy gold dipped back below $1600 an ounce Tuesday morning, though they remained close to that level by lunchtime in London, as the physical bullion market re-opened following the Easter break.

Stock markets edged higher in Europe despite news of record high unemployment and contracting manufacturing sectors, while major government bond prices dipped.

Cyprus triggers preference for Goods, Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Almost certainly prices for goods in Cyprus will rise as a result of its banking crisis, because the imposition of capital controls will restrict imports, leading to supply bottlenecks. In addition residents will no longer be complacent about keeping money on deposit, but seek other alternatives. Large depositors may be trapped, but smaller local depositors will draw them down for cash to stock up on things needed tomorrow while they are available.

Follow the Smart Money to Undervalued Gold Miners / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Investors unsure of which way to turn in this market need only watch the "smart money," says Jeb Handwerger, the editor and publisher of GoldStockTrades.com. Billionaires like John Paulson and Carlos Slim are plucking up mining investments on the cheap. In this interview with The Gold Report, Handwerger shares his favorite discount buys.

 

The Gold Report: Gold recently witnessed some upside price support after the Cypriot parliament proposed taking money from private bank accounts to raise the €5.8 billion needed to qualify for an international bailout. What was your first reaction to that news?

Silver Stocks Update / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

When we discuss gold stocks we often refer to gold and silver stocks. Today we take a look at the silver stocks specifically.

Below is a chart of our partially weighted producers index which contains 14 of the largest silver producers. We didn't cherry pick the 14. We went down the list and that includes a handful of companies which have really struggled in recent years. Anyway, the 56% in the current cyclical bear is well in line with history. Previous downturns have been 51% and 49% and then 85% from 2007-2008.

Gold And Silver Stakes Just Got Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

Cyprus is a trial balloon for the NWO, taking a small country that can more easily be controlled, putting the financial screws to bank depositors and then watching how it all unfolds, creating a playbook for future bank raids. How did the people react? Where will we need to deploy armed police or military? Did keeping the banks closed for a longer period of time force an adjustment of inevitability/acceptance? How much more can we get away with from this learning process?

Major Financial Market Forces’ Trajectories / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DeepCaster_LLC

“We are in a period where the "haves" are determined to hold on to their positions in the world. The "haves" include the world's leaders and politicians, and the world's "masters of the earth," which includes those who control the world's money.

“Those who control the money make the rules, and their main aim is to remain in power. Currently, the various central banks control the creation and the issuance of money. To ensure that they remain in power, the central banks are spewing forth a veritable avalanche of fiat currency, money created out of a computer -- money that has been created out of "thin air." In turn, we are supposed to bow down and thank the money creators, those who are saving us from a new world depression. Thank you, thank you, marvelous Alan Greenspan and great Ben Bernanke.

The best indicator of a chess player's form is his ability to sense the climax of the game. –Boris Spassky, World Chess Champion, 1969-1972

You've likely heard that the German central bank announced it will begin withdrawing part of its massive gold holdings from the United States as well as all its holdings from France. By 2020, Bundesbank says it wants half its gold reserves stored in its own vault in Germany.

Safe Solar Havens - What You Dont Expect Wont Happen / Commodities / Solar Energy

BLOOMBERG MIRACLE ADVICE
On March 29 Bloomberg told its readers that Germany’s solar industry "is set to benefit from the financial crisis in Cyprus as investors seek a haven in the guaranteed returns provided by clean-energy plants". It cited a small German firm called Milk the Sun GmbH (more appropriately Milk the Pigeons Unlimited) which claims it is now deluged with investor requests for advice on placements in the "sensitive range" of 100 000 euros and up.

Silver’s Coming of Age / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Richard_Mills

Silver is winning market share from gold buyers.

2008 - In March 2008, sales increased nine times over the month before - 200,000 to 1,855,000.

In April 2008, the United States Mint had to start an allocation program, effectively rationing Silver Eagle bullion coins to authorized dealers on a weekly basis due to "unprecedented demand."

On June 6, 2008, the Mint announced that all incoming silver planchets were being used to produce only bullion issues of the Silver Eagle and not proof or uncirculated collectible issues.

The PureFunds ISE Junior Silver ETF (NYSE: SILJ), launched in November, differs from other silver mining ETFs in that it focuses only on junior silver miners.

Gold and Silver Where From Here? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

These days gold and silver seem to attract more attention than pretty much any other commodity, perhaps other than oil, and not a day goes by without numerous commentators:

■on one side extolling the ownership and prospective higher prices of both physical gold and physical silver; and,
■on the other side decrying the ownership of both physical gold and physical silver.

Gold Consfication - If You Don't Own your Bank Deposit, Do you Own your Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Three New Realities

When it was announced that both large and small depositors were to have a percentage of them seized, it was not the amount that horrified the world but the discovery that you do not own your own bank deposits.

  1. Most investors worldwide are of the belief that when you deposit your money in a bank, it simply has safe-keeping of that money. The realization that you have lent the bank your money and are an "Unsecured Creditor" of the bank is an unpleasant revelation.

  2. The sight of deposits being confiscated by bank creditors and governments brought home this fact and blew away the illusion, never to be reinstated again, that you own your own money. The reassurances from Brussels that "this is not a template for future bailouts" do not remove the stark realities of the state of depositors from now on. The reality that your money can be confiscated in your bank brought home the meaning of the word, confiscation as a present and very real danger in the future, if the situation warrants it.

  3. Governments have the power to control your money through Capital and Exchange Controls in a bloc like the E.U. This can happen for a long time, probably, in an emasculated state, in a developed country. This is an additional shock to investors and depositors. Note that this is not Argentina or South Africa or Zimbabwe, but a member of the E.U. whose demise was caused by the E.U. through its handling of another member of the E.U., Greece!
