Bad Ideas About Money, Bitcoin, And Gold
Article By: Keith Weiner
Monday, August 21, 2017 9:40 AM EDT
The Fed has opened the door for Bitcoin. In a way, Bitcoin is a perfect denizen in the Fed’s worldwide regime of irredeemable currency. That is, a regime where each printed promise to pay has fine print saying “this promise will not be honored”.

Gold Cycle Outlook: Cautiously Bullish

Your charts are very interesting. I am especially interested in the first one on $GLD. It looks like GLD did test the lower line of the channel today. It will be interesting to see what Monday brings us.

Very true Gary, just as there's not such thing as a free lunch, there's never a sure thing and one must always look at the considerations. Overall, I think #gold looks promising though $GLD.

Counter Trend Moves Underway
Jim Trenery 2/14/2017 7:36:07 PM

I like your thoughts on these markets & especially #Gold. Every time the gold stocks take a dip they get bought up again without any follow through to the down side. What is it going to take to get GC to make an intermediate cycle low? Thanks. $GLD

The Best ETF To Profit From Gold
Jason Stewart 2/6/2017 8:56:13 PM

Moby, thank you for your insight into $SILJ. I've been looking for an alternative to $GLD ever since I did my due diligence into that fund and found it to be quite shady. GLD so famously claim that they are 100% backed but obstinately refuse to give investors access to any of the 'claimed' gold. Why? There are many profitable gold selling businesses in the world. GLD could even charge exorbitant fees for delivery of said gold but they don't for some strange reason.

The frequently referenced GLD subcustodian audit loophole makes me question this fund even more. What guarantees do we have that they have not leased the gold from someone else? i.e. HSBC. Are they leasing it to someone else? How many claims are there on the gold aka hypothecation? GLD's structure seems to be deliberately vague and intentionally flawed. GLD's custodian, HSBC, with their long history of fraud certainly do not inspire confidence either.

For anyone interested in GLD but have not heard about CNBC's Bob Pisani's visit to GLD's #gold vault, I recommend checking it out. His visit is documented in a segment called Gold Rush: The Mother Lode. This entire segment was organized by GLD's management to prove that their gold actually exists but the gold bar held up by Mr. Pisani displayed a serial of ZJ6752. This serial did not show up on the latest bar list during that time. Cheviot Asset Management’s Ned Naylor-Leyland discovered that this "GLD" bar actually belonged to ETF Securities.

Note that even on the subject of GLD's questionable insurance, they are not at all straightforward about it. Their representatives will not confirm nor deny the existence of GLD's insurance. I recommend anyone curious about this to confirm via calling GLD's publicly listed number for general inquiries at (866) 320-4053 and ask about this clause from the GLD prospectus: "The Custodian maintains insurance with regard to its business on such terms and conditions as it considers appropriate which does not cover the full amount of gold held in custody." Exactly how much of the fund is insured? They will not give you a straight answer and might even throw in some bizarre excuse which I've experienced. Why hide this information from investors? The people behind GLD certainly do not seem like the most honest types.

This Gold Rally Is Suspicious
Jason Stewart 1/24/2017 4:00:50 PM

Simple Digressions, once again you are not being entirely truthful here. It wasn't until mid February when the holdings truly start plummeting. You can see $GLD's holdings increasing or holding steady throughout January. Either way, this period contracts your claim of this indicator being reliable. There are other times when this indicator failed too if you want to go further.
