A MUST LISTEN SD Weekly Metals & Markets With The Money Bubble Author James Turk is Below: 

collapseThe Equities Market Sell-Off and Economic Data continue to support Deepcaster’s often-expressed View that the International and the USA’s Economy is slowing with Key downstream consequences being that there will be many more Debt Defaults and Earnings Misses, with predictable Negative Consequences for Equities and other Markets and Economies.
Key Profit Opportunities and Risks will thus be magnified going forward into 2016.

falling-bearIt was a better week for precious metals, with gold and silver hitting new highs for 2016.
The performance for 2016 so far represents a rise of 9% for gold, and 7.75% for silver.
Normally silver is roughly twice as volatile as gold, which suggests that silver is relatively under-priced in current market conditions.

The bears in precious metals markets were caught off guard by the Bank of Japan’s introduction of negative interest rates earlier this week.

It appeared that nobody wanted to be short gold going into the weekend. 
Miners leading the metal is what we like to see in a bull move for gold, and that’s what we are seeing now.
  Much of PM is now over the 200 MA. 
Next step is a “golden cross”…

rocketGold and its miners’ stocks are rocketing higher as speculators and investors alike return to this left-for-dead sector.  This sudden deluge of capital inflows has crowned gold stocks the best-performing sector of this young new year by far, shocking traders!
And this stunning reversal of fortunes in both the metal and the companies producing it is only starting, so it’s exceedingly important to understand what’s going on.

down goldThe jobs report saw the bankers knock gold and silver down early in the New York session, but this time, investors were witnessing smoke emanating from European and Chinese banks.  They decided it was about time to buy both gold and silver as a safe haven for global economic chaos. By closing time the access market had gold at $1174.00 and the price of silver finished at $14.97.

crashIs a financial crisis being covered up?  What do you make of the Fed Capital Account charts?
One thing to remember – when these huge financial upheavals occur, you find out the day after they’ve tried to patch things up.

There will be no last minute warning.

rocketThe admission that the economy is so weak that it needs more QE is going to destroy the narrative that the U.S. economy is in great shape and it’s no longer going to be the safe haven for capital around the world…it’s going to prick the bubble in the dollar…and people are going to realize that we’ve never recovered from anything, the economy is sicker than ever, the Fed’s going to make it even sicker with more of its toxic monetary policy, the dollar’s going to tank and the price of gold is going to skyrocket and people need to prepare for that now. 

petro dollar sunset WillieIn this MUST LISTEN extended interview, Hat Trick Letter editor Jim Willie forecasts why the Chinese are set to take over the daily gold fix (particularly in the wake of last week’s London silver fix fiasco), and are set to announce RMB gold futures contracts…

Buy Silver Kookaburras at SDBullionA situation where more gold standing for delivery than is claimed to exist is NOT a “good” thing.  This is a VERY dangerous situation of potential default and one where by hook or by crook has been avoided to this point. Is it this delivery month where delivery fails?  I do not know.
I do know we live in a world where China is importing every single gold ounce produced on the planet leaving nothing else leftover for the rest of the world.
This situation can only last or continue as long as vaults have gold and the owners are willing to fill the deficit between supply and demand.
I will say this, the global financial system will completely seize up and close for trading once gold delivery fails.  This will only take 48 HOURS after a failure, and the ability to procure metal, sell stocks and bonds, or do anything else financial will not be an option.

margin explosion2016 has begun with a bang and much of the volatility is due to global derivative exposure.
With that in mind, what better time than now for an exclusive interview with bond trading and derivative expert, Rob Kirby:

monster-boxes silverI sat down with The Doc, SDBullion and Silver Doctors, to get a first hand update on the gold and silver market.  Doc speaks with the Authorized Purchasers (AP) of the U.S.Mint American Silver and Gold Eagle bullion coins on a regular basis.  Who better to explain what is happening, right now, with the benchmark silver coin than someone who is constant contact with the people that interact with the U.S.Mint?
This is a timely update with both gold and silver on the move to the upside, which we haven’t really seen moves like this in some time.
Both were moving up while we recorded – Wednesday February 3 – and again Thursday morning.

There is a lot of really great information that The Doc brings to the table regarding premiums, where we have been and where the market could be headed.
Give this a good listen as I believe you will find it very encouraging.  Got Physical?

smashThis could be the end of the fix.” – Ole Hansen, head of commodity strategy for Saxo Bank

David Morgan joins us to cover silver and the breaking of the LBMA electronic “silver fix”.
Have criminal banks involved in the daily price fix finally lost control?

If ATMs, banks and markets close, or if hyperinflation makes the fiat, Federal Reserve note completely worthless overnight, none of these goods will be exchangeable for the money you have sitting in the bank, or on a credit card.

Nomi PrinsWe’re getting to the end of what’s possible in terms of stimulation, I would have thought the end should have happened years ago. But the reason it didn’t was because of the epic coordinated efforts between the major central banks… and that element has left markets with the APPEARANCE of health they haven’t actually had because of true growth. And there’s only so much you can do of that.  These are desperate actions.”
