Back in August 2015, I noted that Goldman Sachs and HSBC had taken delivery of a huge tonnage of physical gold, probably purchased near the lows. Physical bars of gold are, by definition, a very long term investment in the yellow metal. At the time, the two banks were telling clients and others not to buy gold, even as they were loading up on it, themselves.

Let’s fast forward…

Starting in December 2015, JP Morgan began buying tremendous quantities of physical gold, as opposed to paper/electronic gold futures, forwards, ETF certificates etc. From December 1, 2015 to December 29, 2016, the big bank purchased and took physical delivery of over 31 metric tonnes worth of bars of the yellow metal for its house account at COMEX alone.

In other words, it now has a physical gold pile which, at minimum, is worth over $1.1 billion at $1,140 per troy ounce, and it is an asset of the corporate bank. By May, 2016, unlike the actions of GS and HSBC in buying while advising clients to sell, analysts at JP Morgan were beginning to encourage customers to buy gold also.

Let me repeat that the enormous purchase of 31+ tonnes of traceable physical gold occurred at New York’s COMEX exchange. The so-called “OTC” gold market in London is five times larger than the gold market in New York City, and if they were buying at COMEX, they were probably buying in London also. The problem with London is that the “LBMA” is not a formal exchange with disclosure rules and regulatory oversight. It is simply an informal collection of banks who operate by agreeing to a common set of rules of engagement. Transactions are secret.

We will never know how much physical gold has been purchased in London by JP Morgan, HSBC, Goldman Sachs or anyone else. However, if JPM’s purchases happen to be synchronized to market size, with New York’s COMEX, they will have purchased another 155 metric tons, for a total of 186 tonnes of gold. Either way, JPM is now in the realm of a sovereign sized gold holding. Most countries hold less than 31 tonnes of gold. Only a handful own more than 186 tonnes.

Why would a commercial bank, like JPM, make such a huge investment in physical gold bars? Is it just opportunism? Is it because they know that gold prices are going to rise dramatically? Do they know this because, as many have alleged, the company houses the most important or some of the most important people who run the gold price manipulation scheme? That’s fun to say but it makes no sense as a explanation for the purchase of so much physical gold. JPM may or may not be a gold manipulator, but that fact is irrelevant with respect to this question.

Generally speaking, the idea behind gold price manipulation is to mint a quick paper profit. If you can convince a foolish and incompetent American President to subsidize your front-running operation, by claiming that it is a way of “stabilizing the value of the US dollar”… all the better. Getting a government subsidy increases profits and reduces risk. But, there is no good reason to choose physical gold as your avenue of manipulation and every reason not to. For one thing, it is a non-leveraged investment. For another, it is more difficult to trade than shares of GLD, other ETFs, gold futures contracts, and mining company shares. All of the latter are far more efficient investments so long as the question of being able to get the real thing doesn’t come up.

In fact, all the big banks, including JPM have bought significant stakes in various gold mining companies over the last 2 years. Why spend money to store and insure physical bars of gold when it is more efficient to mint your profits by simply buying more mining company shares? That’s why the purchase of so much physical gold is puzzling. It seems to me that something bigger must be going on behind the scenes.

JP Morgan is the US Treasury and Federal Reserve’s most important proxy in financial markets. For example, it manages the Fed’s entire mortgage bond portfolio. Physical gold is not normally something that is on the top of the trading floor’s list of preferred products. These purchases are now tying up a significant percentage of the bank’s capital. In order to put so many resources into physical gold bars, JPM’s top management would have had to approve the action. That means the purchases must be supported by some very good underlying reason.

Top JPM management knows a lot more about the inside story about what is going on, behind the scenes, than we know. Is something big about to happen that will dramatically raise the value of real physical gold bars, above more convenient forms of gold ownership? I can think of only two scenarios that would make a large pile of physical gold bars the best corporate investment for a big bank (as opposed to its customers).

One scenario is that JP Morgan knows we have reached the end game and are on the cusp of the long anticipated collapse of the synthetic gold market (ie: gold futures, forwards, “unallocated” storage, maybe GLD etc.). If the gold derivatives market collapses, people will accept only physical gold for a very long time afterward. That would make a physical gold hoard far more profitable than even shares of a mining company. Remember, it takes time to mine more gold. But, the holder of a huge pile of existing bars can sell them, right away, when the level of panic is extreme, at the very top of the market, when demand (and prices) are at their highest.

Another scenario involves being at the cusp of a massive change in the world’s monetary system. If JP Morgan’s top management knows that physical gold is going to be a key part of what replaces the fiat US dollar as the international standard of exchange, and if that change is not very far in the future, it would make perfect sense to buy physical gold. Again, the holder would be in an excellent position to sell the gold bars to third parties (mainly, I suppose, to other banks and even nations) at the very top of the market.

The scenarios I’ve listed, above, are the only ones that come into my mind at the moment. That is not to say that the list is complete. Are there any more possible scenarios that provide a logical answer as to why JP Morgan is investing so much of its capital in such a huge number of physical gold bars?

NEWS FLASH!!

Written by: Avery B. Goodman

On November 29, 2016, I wrote that John Allison, retired CEO of BB&T Bank and the libertarian think tank, CATO Institute, was being considered for appointment as the new U.S. Treasury Secretary. That was music to the ears of many people including me. The man is a real banker, as opposed to a bankster, and his bank concentrated on real lending, the way a bank ought to, rather than opportunistic gambling and manipulation. He spent his life running an institution that supported American business. That, of course, supported good jobs that sustain communities.

In fact, BB&T Bank was one of the handful of major American financial institutions that remained very well capitalized during the 2008 financial crisis. It didn’t need any help from the U.S. government, although it was forced to take the “help” anyway. Allison opposed “TARP” and was sharply critical of the bailouts. His bank was pressured into accepting the money because it was thought that if banks like BB&T didn’t, the truth about the insolvency of a majority of American banks would be forced out of the closet.

Mr. Allison believes, as do I and most clear thinking people, that the world would be better off returning to a strict gold standard. He also believes that the Federal Reserve makes the swings in the business cycle more severe, and that the central bank ought to be closed down. It was very disappointing when I found out that former hedge fund manager, Steve Mnuchin, was awarded the US Treasury Secretary position, instead.

It seemed like Allison was going back to Winston-Salem, NC, empty handed. That was a sad shame considering how well-qualified he is. More recently, however, I learned that it isn’t over, and I wanted to share that with you. Mnuchin may be getting the coveted Treasury Secretary position, but Allison is still being seriously considered for “other administration positions”. In an interview in his hometown newspaper, for example, he disclosed that the 90-minute discussion with President Trump was only partly about the possibility of becoming U.S. Treasury Secretary.

Allison was actually being vetted for a number of other top positions. At the moment, he refuses to say which ones. But, he did mention that the idea that he join the Trump administration came from Vice President-elect Mike Pence. Mr. Pence had read his book about the 2008 financial crisis, and asked him to testify about it while he was still a Congressman. According to Allison:

“He thought my book was one of the best explanation of the crisis. As such, he was kind enough to inform the president-elect of my qualifications to serve in his administration. It was flattering to have been asked to meet with (Trump), and if I had been asked to serve in an administrative position, it would have required some significant thought and consideration.”

Oddly, although he says he wants to close it down, Allison is particularly interested in serving as Chairman of the Federal Reserve when Janet Yellen’s position expires. He says that he is willing to do that even though his real goal is to end the Fed. That’s because, in his opinion (and he is probably right) it is going to be politically impossible to close it down abruptly. His compromise is to, at least, end the central bank’s interest rate discretion. He wants to force the Fed to strictly comply with the “Taylor Rule”, which is a formula that determines what the interest rate should be, based on other economic factors.

Clearly, adherence to the Taylor Rule would rein in the Fed, because the basis for determination of the prevailing interest rate would be openly disclosed.  Since everyone would have equal knowledge and automatically know what the interest rate would be, members of the FOMC could no longer tip off their friends and colleagues at the banks they once worked at. It would eliminate the insider’s advantage, and destroy the incentive to place Trojan horses on the Fed’s interest rate setting committee to the benefit of certain trading firms.

As to going back to gold, the best alternative is not necessarily to “end the Fed”. Rather, it is better to simply return gold to “legal tender” status. The Federal Reserve should be allowed to continue printing its notes. Paper and electronic dollars would continue to be used, alongside gold, to the extent that people wanted to use them. Both dollars and gold would be legal tender for payment of all debts, public and private. In order to stabilize the value of gold (and of the dollar), leveraged trading would become illegal.

By monetizing gold, we would have the best of both worlds. There would be an automatic one-off increase in the money supply without resorting to confidence-destroying measures like money-printing. The increase probably wouldn’t be used for speculation in the stock market. That’s because the primary dealers would not be able to  borrow it at the Federal Reserve’s daily loan windows. As “better money”, most of it would disappear from circulation, based on Gresham’s Law. That, however, is a very good thing. As people’s savings, rather than a medium of exchange, gold could serve as the buffer that stabilizes against the big booms and busts induced by the fiat dollar economy.

COMEX CREATES A NEW FAKE “SPOT” PHYSICAL GOLD & SILVER MARKET!

Is money burning holes in your pockets? Do you want to be rid of it? Do you like the idea of giving the perfect gift to your friendly neighborhood bankster?

If so, CME, Inc. has just the deal for you. Their precious metals futures exchange, also known as “COMEX”,  will allow you put your money at risk, with no return on investment, beginning on January 9, 2017. It is on that date that it will unveil its new so-called “gold and silver spot” contract.

Careful reading of the minutae of the contract announcement reveals the truth and it isn’t pretty. Unfortunately, most people won’t read the contract and many who do read won’t understand. That’s why entities like CME, Inc. get away with so much. That is also why I am going to make an effort to educate people to this scam. First, let’s look at how cleverly COMEX discloses the truth, even as it defrauds its customers:

On Sunday January 8, 2017, for trade date Monday, January 9, trading will commence in COMEX Gold and Silver Spot Futures. On each COMEX business day, the Exchange will list for trading one Gold Spot Futures (GSP) contract, and one Silver Spot Futures (SSP) contract. The contract will trade up to 5:00 pm New York time for that business day. Open positions at that 5:00 pm closing time will result in physical delivery of unallocated metal – gold or silver – on the spot value date.

By using the word “spot”, the company implies that buyers will be purchasing physical gold. Of course, that’s what they want you to believe and what most people who buy it will believe. Unfortunately, it is not true. Each so-called “spot” contract confers nothing more than a right to theoretical gold or silver. The metal, itself will remain as imaginary as it always has. The key to it all is that unallocated gold and silver holders, by definition, OWN NO IDENTIFIABLE BAR OF GOLD OR SILVER.  As a result, the use of the words “physical” and “delivery” is nothing more than a fraud. No one can “physically deliver” what doesn’t exist.

The supposed “delivery” will be done by a notation on an electronic statement. The statement will say you “own” the right to “x” number of ounces of gold or silver. If you ever do demand a real bar, the dealer will have the option of settling with you in cash. If the dealer has no gold and has no cash, you’ll be an unsecured creditor, with a low priority claim, in bankruptcy court. You won’t get paid one red cent.

Let’s say you’re an unallocated gold holder who has read this article. You’ve decided that imaginary gold is not good enough. You call their bluff.  You demand real physical delivery. The dealer must then take metal from its general stock, if it has any.  If too many people ask for real gold or silver, the whole scam collapses and you’re out of luck. One big problem is that the banks that run London’s unallocated gold market, which is where these new COMEX contracts will be based, are generally believed to hold only one ounce of real metal for every 100 that they supposedly “sell”.

CME, Inc. will argue that the exchange “guarantees” the trade, but the claim is basically meaningless. If one dealer goes belly-up, it is possible that COMEX will reimburse you. Or, it is also possible that they’ll find an excuse not to reimburse you, such as by saying that the dealer didn’t completely follow their rules. But, assuming they do reimburse you, they will almost certainly do it with cash, not with metal. If one dealer has collapsed, since all the dealers are deeply intermeshed with one another, it is probable that the failure will bring down a lot of them. With a run on the bank like that, the exchange itself will collapse.

To adding insult to injury, dealers often attempt to charge up to a whopping 1% per year to store so-called unallocated gold or silver. That is in spite of the fact that they are “storing” nothing but vault air! The bottom line is this… DO NOT TOUCH THE UNALLOCATED PRECIOUS METAL SCAM WITH A TEN FOOT POLE. The new COMEX contract is a rehash of the same old scam. If you are already involved in unallocated gold or silver, get out while you still can. If you wait long enough, you may end up with nothing.

Remember something critical. Gold is money. Unallocated gold is not gold. It does not exist. It is a bank issued bond similar to those that were sold in the days of the gold standard. It carries the same risk as a bank gold bond. Then, as now, the bank could fail, and often did. Therefore, in return for putting your capital at risk, interest should be paid. If it isn’t, you’re a fool to put your money in. Back in gold standard days, nobody in their right mind was fool enough to hand gold to a bank without being paid interest. No one should do it now either. Beyond that, only a blooming idiot would ever pay a storage fee on his own money, when the bank is using it as working capital, selling it or lending it out as they do with so-called “unallocated” gold/silver.

How can you buy gold and silver while avoiding scams like this? Middle class people should buy coins and small bars at retail gold dealers. People wealthy enough to buy 100+ ounces of gold at one time should REJECT the solicitations of any broker who tries to get them to agree to an “unallocated” scheme. That includes the new one that COMEX will be promoting, starting next month. If your broker keeps pushing the idea, fire him, and find somebody else to help you with your money.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TAIWAN AND THE SO-CALLED “ONE CHINA” POLICY

Because of the recent bru-ha-ha over a telephone call that President-elect Donald J. Trump took from the President of Taiwan, I decided to investigate the island’s history, to find out the real story.  I was very surprised by what I found. The history of human habitation on the island of Taiwan goes back 8,000 years. Contrary to official mainland Chinese propaganda, and popular belief in America, the island has not been a historical part of the Chinese Empire for all of Chinese history.

Prior to 1624, the natives of Taiwan were primarily Polynesian in appearance and culture. Accounts from those days, indicate that they were not related to orientals or Han Chinese at all. They were a light brown-skinned people, typically proto-Caucasian in appearance. They looked and acted much the same as native Hawaiians, Tahitians and Maori. Indeed, most scientists  believe that the Polynesian people originated on Taiwan.

As a result of large-scale Chinese in-migration and interbreeding, however, the remaining “tribes people”, now referred to as “aboriginal Taiwanese” have acquired Han Chinese facial features, including the straight shiny black hair, wide cheekbones and epicanthically folded eyelids. These were NOT the people that were found on the island hundreds of years ago, however, when it was first colonized by westerners.

In 1624, Dutch traders established a crown colony on the island with the intent of using it as a base to trade with China and Japan. The Dutch East India Company came up with a novel idea on getting something the Chinese and Japanese would be willing to pay for.  Both mainland China and Japan were big food importers then just like now. The Dutch administration, therefore, imported farmers from Europe, and set up a system of rice and sugar plantations.

To work the land, they imported about 50-60,000 Chinese. The deal was this: the Dutch would supply free transport to the island, free tools, farming advice, seed and oxen. In return, Chinese farmers were required to pay 10% of all their crops to the Dutch. Not a bad deal. The Dutch were thinking long-term because, at the time, the Chinese Empire had no desire to control the island. Bureaucrats in Beijing viewed it as worthless. They called it a “miserable mud flat” and the “Gate of Hell”.

By 1626, things were shaping up so nicely that the Spanish sought to muscle in on the Dutch. They established a foothold in the northern portion of the island, but were expelled within 20 years. Unfortunately, for the Dutch colonists, who had adopted Taiwan as their new home, in 1662, war broke out between the dying Ming and incoming Qing dynasties in mainland China. That ended as a disaster for the Ming, whose fleeing troops then became a disaster for the young Dutch colony.  About 7,000 surviving Ming troops fled to Taiwan in 200 warships.

Sensing weakness (the Dutch garrison numbered about 180), the Ming escapees didn’t ask permission to land and settle. They simply attacked, and wrested control of the island away from the Dutch, by so-called “right of conquest”. After killing most of the Dutchmen, they found themselves as fascinated by “yellow hair” as Chinese men still are today. The Ming officers, therefore, forced all the remaining Dutch women into slavery as concubines and prostitutes. Most were kept by Ming officers. Some were used by the Ming officers and, later, sold for service to the common troops. The daughters of the well-known Dutch missionary Antonius Hambroek met this fate.

About 20 years passed, and the Ming slowly won the loyalty of various native chiefs, replacing the Dutch in the trading deals. By the 1680s, the Ming felt strong enough to mount a mainland offensive. They wanted to reestablish their dynasty in the only place that counted, “the middle kingdom between the mountains and the sea” (a/k/a mainland China). They landed troops and tried to rally support on the mainland.

The scheme failed. In the end, the Ming were routed again. This time, however, even though they loathed the island of Taiwan, the rulers of the Qing dynasty was not about to allow the surviving Ming to return to Taiwan to rebuild their power again. So, they were followed back to the island. Then, the Ming were finally and decisively defeated. The Qing took control over those portions of the island that had been previously controlled by the Dutch, and ended the Ming dynasty once and for all.

Qing control, however, was always as spotty as that of their predecessors. At the height, in 1895, the Qing dynasty still only controlled 45% of the island. The rest, about 55%, was under the control of various native chiefs. Earlier, beginning in 1592, the Japanese Empire unilaterally decided that the island was rightfully a part of Japan. It contested the Chinese Qing dynasty’s claim to Taiwan, which it viewed as invalid. According to the Japanese, the island had always been part of the “natural and historic islands of Japan.” Indeed, although they didn’t know enough anthropology to use it as an excuse, Japan’s original  inhabitants, prior to immigration from parts of China, was a similar non-Mongoloid race, the “Ainu”.

A mass invasion was attempted in 1619, but it failed as a result of a typhoon that sank the Japanese ships. Finally, in 1895, the Japanese won sovereignty in the Sino-Japan War. During Japan’s rule, many inhabitants of Taiwan, though genetically mostly Chinese, enthusiastically adopted Japanese culture, names and language. They also enlisted in and were ready to fight for their beloved Japanese Emperor. About 200,000 of the troops that invaded China were ethnic Han Taiwanese, who viewed themselves as being just as loyal to the Japanese emperor as people who might live in Tokyo or Osaka.

During the war, the Chinese government renounced all treaties with Japan and made return of the island of Taiwan a primary war goal. After Japan was defeated by the USA, the island was handed back to mainland China. However, the unruly islanders didn’t like the idea of mainland control, regardless of their ethnic blood lines. They proved difficult to control. Several hundred thousand native Japanese were residents by then, and the rest of the population was heavily Japanized. The native Japanese were so difficult to handle that they were expelled to Japan very quickly.

By 1947, however, “anti-mainlander” sentiment had vastly increased among the Japanized Han population. The result was widespread violence, looting and riots. It all ended in a mass revolt, in which tens of thousands of Taiwanese died by the hands of mainland Chinese armies (the Kuomintang at the time). Then, in 1949, the Communists took control of the mainland, isolating the remaining nationalist troops to Taiwan. Over the years, nationalists from the mainland have become less disliked, and integrated into Taiwanese society and vice versa.

One thing is clear. There is no moral imperative that supports the so-called “One China” policy. In fact, viewing the mainland and the island of Taiwan as “one China” has been a very misguided concept from the very beginning. In reality, mainland China has no better claim to the island of Taiwan than Japan, Holland, or Spain. The current racial mix on the island means that the inhabitants have a majority of Han Chinese genes. That does not mean the mainland Chinese government has a right to control their lives or their foreign relations. The islanders have a much more morally defensible claim toward independence.

WILL INDIA REALLY HAVE MUCH IMPACT ON GOLD PRICES IN 2017?

There seems to be some new, seemingly crazy, action by the PM Modi administration in India every day. Last month, for example, they capriciously demonetized the primary forms of cash used commercial transactions in India. It was a stupid thing to do. At the least, it was carried out in a very incompetent manner. It led to chaos, as banks and citizens ran out of cash. Some truckers were even unable to find sufficient cash to pay for fuel and had to abandon deliveries. It was a bit crazy… and economists now expect the demonetization of 86% of India’s money supply to cost several GDP percentage points. Not the smartest way to a run a country. Certainly not a wise method of developing one.

Once someone gets a bad reputation, like that, it is easy for people to believe the worst about him. Whether he deserves it or not, Indian PM Modi has gained the reputation of a madman, or a fool in some western business circles. Naturally, therefore, that has made it easier to plant stories in the business news media hyping up some additional alleged madness. The Indian Finance Ministry, in a show of determination, stated on December 1st that new rules would require that gold be purchased out of income disclosed on prior tax returns, or using exempt income that isn’t taxable (like agricultural income), or using reasonable household savings, or must be “legally inherited from explained sources.”

Contrary to the hype, the supposedly “new” rules actually change nothing. No doubt, the Indian government will become more aggressive in enforcing the law. However, the “new” rules are merely a restatement of old rules that already existed. It has never been legal to defraud the Indian government of taxes. It has never been legal to buy assets, be it gold or anything else, with the proceeds of tax fraud. The newly announced rules are essentially a “press release”, a public relations notice, designed to appeal to less wealthy Indians, who have long been irritated by the ostentatious displays of wealthier neighbors.

In truth, the Indian government has added protection that didn’t exist before. For example, each married woman is protected from being required to show how she managed to get up to 1/2 kilo of gold, worth about $18,000. That’s a huge amount of money in India. Each unmarried woman has the right to not be questioned about up to 1/4 kilo or $9,000 worth of gold, also a huge amount for the country. Each man has the right to keep up to 1/10th kilo or about $3,600 worth. No questions will be asked about such amounts, even if the stuff really was bought with black money. On top of that, an unlimited amount of inherited gold can be kept, free and clear, and tax policemen now have the discretion to “look the other way” at even higher amounts.

Obviously, the Modi government cannot hope to win reelection if it terrorizes the whole Indian population. Even if it wanted to do that, India’s constitutional protection against illegal search and seizure, while not as strong as in the USA, is still substantial. The government does not have an unfettered right to invade people’s homes, businesses and safe deposit boxes simply because it wants to. It faces the same problem as tax authorities in the USA and elsewhere. It must justify such a search and obtain a warrant in all but the most unusual situations.

Indian law can be summarized as follows:

“Legislative intrusion [into the right of privacy in India – AG] must be tested on the touchstone of reasonableness as guaranteed by the Constitution and for that purpose the Court can go into proportionality of the intrusion vis-à-vis the purpose sought to be achieved. (2) So far as administrative or executive action is concerned it has to be reasonable having regard to the facts and circumstances of the case. (3) As to judicial warrants, the Court must have sufficient reason to believe that the search or seizure is warranted and it must keep in mind the extent of search or seizure necessary for protection of the particular State interest. In addition, as stated earlier, common law did recognise rare exceptions for conduct of warrantless searches could be conducted but these had to be in good faith, intended to preserve evidence or intended to prevent sudden anger to person or property.”

Under Indian law, like that of the United States, people are deemed innocent until proven guilty.  The state must prove that black money was used to buy gold before it can be permanently seized. Don’t get me wrong. I have little doubt that Indian tax police will target and be unfair toward certain people, especially ostentacious rich ones who support the opposition. It will also target businesses that are washing demonetized notes, especially those exchanging them for gold. But although the flamboyantly rich, and black market traders, buy what seems like ridiculously large quantities of gold, the vast majority of gold demand comes from tens of millions of average middle class people. The government won’t be bothering them. It also won’t be bothering rural farmers who purchase about a third of the gold imported into India each year. I might add that the income of the farmers is agricultural income and exempt from tax.

Indian tax authorities have always sought warrants to search and seize gold from targeted people. It has been doing that for decades. For example, all the way back in 1996, under the now-opposition Congress Party, it seized 28 kg. worth of gold, allegedly purchased with black money acquired through bribery. The gold bars were in possession of the ostentatious widow of the late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa at the time of seizure. The case is still pending in the very slow Indian court system.

The idea that the Indian government will terrorize a lot of middle class Indian families, looking for illicit gold, is ridiculous. The announcement is being intentionally used for its shock value and has been deliberately misconstrued. Remember, misinformation is one of the most powerful tools used during major market manipulation events. Misinformation can and is used to panic people, especially over-leveraged gamblers. If they swallow the nonsense, and it appears gamblers in NYC and London are swallowing it right now, the open interest in gold derivatives can be reduced at a minimal cost. That lowers the exposure of casino banksters to higher gold prices.

Once you look at the what is really going on, you see a very different picture from the one that is hyped by naive western speculators who spread the stories, and the manipulators who invent them. In truth, India recently scrapped disruptive requirements that required 20% of all imported gold to be re-exported. According to a highly placed Reuters’ source, they will scrap other gold import limitations next week. It will soon be considerably easier to import gold into India. If not for the demonetization that reduced the money to buy with, demand would immediately rise. As it is, demand will still rise, though it may fall marginally in the short term. Let’s face it, after the recent actions of the Indian government, few law abiding (or non-law-abiding) people are going to be saving rupees.

It is important to take the trouble to carefully calculate the true Chinese gold demand, because once you do that, everything becomes crystal clear. You need to correct for the intentional or unintentional, but nevertheless massive, multiple under-count errors made by GFMS. Once you do the numbers, you’ll find that the end result is a huge gap between worldwide gold demand and supply. It is so large, in fact, that not even the complete elimination of the 800 tons of gold that India might normally be expected to buy this year, would fill it.

In other words, even if India somehow didn’t buy one more ounce of the yellow metal, there would still be an unfilled gap of nearly 1,000 tons at prices below $1,200 per troy ounce. Notably, this demand calculation does not include the possibility of increased demand for gold in Turkey. Its citizens have just been instructed by their President Erdogan to “buy gold and lira”, not foreign currencies. The numbers also exclude next year’s probable increase in Islamic gold demand now that the “Shariah gold standard” has finally been set. No consideration is also given to the probability that instability in Europe, especially due to the upcoming election in France, could massively increase demand in that nation.

Gold prices will begin to climb sharply once the current manipulation event runs its course. An objective look at the real numbers makes it clear that some entity has filled a huge and growing supply gap for at least 4 years running. That not-so-mysterious entity, in all probability, is the US Treasury, which is accomplishing it mostly through arrangements with the Bank of England. There is little question that very large swap liens, taken against gold reserves held at Fort Knox, have been deployed to fill the gap.

Things are changing. First of all, even if the willingness to piss away America’s gold were still there, at the current burn rate, the entire gold reserve will be gone within a maximum of 2-3 years. However, the new Trump government includes several highly placed gold standard supporters, most notably the man who is shaping up to be the single most powerful influence on President-elect Donald J. Trump, Vice President-elect Mike Pence. The speed by which casino bankers lose unfettered access to America’s gold will be based primarily on how fast Trump can reverse the Obama era executive orders.

The quasi-secret order, allowing access to America’s gold reserves, was probably signed on April 11, 2013. As soon as they get to it, it will be reversed. The Obama era, during which our golden treasure was foolishly pissed away in profit-making schemes, concocted by NYC and London banksters, is now over. That is the fact that will dominate pricing in 2017 and beyond, not whether India changes its gold imports by a few 100 tons of gold, more or less. It is impossible to know the exact bottom in a market manipulation. However, now or soon is the time to buy, not sell.

THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TURN OUT TO BE GOLD STANDARD FANS

Vice President-elect Michael Pence is currently the most powerful single political influence on President-elect Trump. Among other things, he is in charge of the transition team. He will also be in charge, after the inauguration, with dealing with Congress. For leftists, hostile to gold, that is a problem. However, for those of us who believe that the only way to solve our long-term economic problems is by a return to honest money, it is a godsend.

The editor of the New York Sun realized this quite a while ago. He wrote, back in July, about the wise choice of then-Governor Mike Pence as a running mate:

“Donald Trump’s choice of Mike Pence for vice president would — if it is confirmed tomorrow — be a promising pick for those of us who see a restoration of sound money as the essential precondition for returning America’s economy to a trajectory of jobs and growth…

Why did the paper write this? Left-wing economists and politicians have a long standing case of aurophobia. They hate gold because it inhibits both corporatist and government control over the economy. Don’t bother telling them that the dishonest system of “debt money” enslaves the very people they claim to protect. Don’t bother pointing out that debt based money favors the accumulation of capital by a narrow portion of society who receive the money first. I am, of course, talking about the bankers on Wall Street. Don’t bother warning them that the constant inflation, inherent in debt money, will eventually destroy the hopes, dreams and savings of the middle class. They don’t want to listen.

In contrast, Vice President Elect Mike Pence views gold from the standpoint of a person who does not want the large corporations and government to have complete and detailed control over the economy. His view, therefore, is diametrically opposite. He believes that gold is important to the system because it provides a base against which other things can be measured. In a speech at the Detroit Economic Club in November 2010, he said, and I quote:

“…My dear friend, the late Jack Kemp, probably would have urged me to adopt the gold standard, right here and now in Detroit. Robert Zoellick, the president of the World Bank, encouraged that we rethink the international currency system including the role of gold, and I agree. I think the time has come to have a debate over gold, and the proper role it should play in our nations monetary affairs. A pro-growth agenda begins with sound monetary policy…”

President-Elect Trump, himself, can be said to be a bit of a gold bug. He bought the yellow metal in the 1970s at about $185 per ounce, and sold it at $780. After that experience, the taste for gold never left him. During the campaign, he stated:

“Bringing back the gold standard would be very hard to do, but boy would it be wonderful, because we’d have a standard on which to base our money.”

In contrast, starting with a not-so-secret executive order, signed on April 11, 2013, President Obama seems to have authorized a raid on American gold reserves to bolster his administration’s claims of economic success. The banksters’ scheme was designed to control the chirping “canary in the coal mine” (rising gold prices) because it was singing too loudly of failed economic policies. It was also designed to put a lot of private profits into banker’s pockets. Thankfully, things are going to be different.

The new administration is looking very gold-friendly. Neither Pence nor Trump have outright stated that they intend to restore the gold standard, although Pence did hint at it. Does that mean it’s going to happen? Probably not. The stupidity of the Obama  administration, in giving license to the banksters to drain away America’s gold reserves, has made it nearly impossible. The only way would be to institute an secret program to buy back the gold. Issuing new dollars in exchange for gold would increase the money supply, a form of economic stimulus, so it might fit into the new President’s plans.

It’s not only the President and Vice President who like the gold standard. Dr. Judy Shelton was one of the two economists named to Donald Trump’s economic advisory team in August. She is now a member of the President-Elect’s transition team, and is a very strong gold standard supporter. Shelton first rose to prominence among economists when she predicted the economic collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989, two years before it happened. She says that many of the same issues are now appearing in the American banking system.  Her answer: reestablish the gold standard!

In an article in Fortune magazine, Dr. Shelton stated, and I quote:

In terms of gold being involved, some people may think of that as a throwback, but I see it as a sophisticated, forward-looking approach because gold is neutral and it’s universal.

The pre-election statements of President and Vice President, as well as the opinions of their most loyal advisors, answer the question many worry about. Some worry that “too many” people associated with Goldman Sachs are being appointed to positions in the Trump administration. Perhaps. However, that does not mean that banksters will be given free reign to continue doing what banksters have done in the past. In this case, banksters will not be allowed to continue pissing away America’s precious gold reserves. Top Trump administration people will surely see the schemes for what they are — personal enrichment programs for the banksters that support them.

The “Gold Reserve Act”, passed by Congress in 1934, requires the consent of the President before the Secretary of the Treasury can authorize tapping into America’s gold reserve. That’s what the meeting with President Obama and the CEOs of the biggest gold dealing banks, on April 11, 2013, was all about. It took place one day before the biggest attack on gold prices ever undertaken. The fact that the meeting took place at all, however, indicates that even left-wing Barack Obama was questioning the wisdom of raiding America’s gold.

Donald Trump appreciated the money that Steven Mnuchin, his only well-connected Wall Street fund raiser, brought in during the Presidential campaign. It is natural to reward someone after something like that, and that is why Mnuchin is now going to be US Treasury Secretary. But, even if he wanted to, which is not at all clear, it is very unlikely that Mnuchin would be able to convince President Trump to leave Obama’s gold reserve blasting executive order intact. Remember, Mr. Trump took issue with the idea of spending $4 billion worth of easily printable paper dollars on several new “Air Force One” 747s. Do you think he’s going to be convinced by anyone to piss away gold reserves, which are very difficult to replace?

The decline in gold prices, during November and December has been designed to allow manipulators with large, long-standing short gold positions, to shell-shock markets, facilitating an orderly escape with minimal damage. The hyping of India’s tax law changes was part of that, and is part of the strategy used to demoralize long speculators. The truth, however, is that even if India stopped importing gold, entirely, given the current excess of demand over supply, demand would still far exceed mining and scrap refining supplies. With that gap unfilled, the price must rise substantially. For more information about the true supply/demand situation for gold, see this article.

Going forward, the unplugged gap between supply and demand will be closed by the real market, not from further donations from the American treasury. Prices will rise once the banksters see the prospective cutoff from access to America’s gold reserves come too close for comfort. At that point, which will probably come in late December to early January, they will spin off whatever small short position they still have left, at any price they must pay to do it, and the upward movement will begin in earnest.

THE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF 186 TONS OF MISSING GOLD!

Share This Article With Your Friends!

The British Office for National Statistics just admitted that it miscalculated British imports by some £6 billion pounds sterling! Guess what they missed?  That’s right. What else? You guessed right — gold!  It always seems to be gold. Hmmm…

Anyway, it depends on the exact day each ounce of gold was imported, but generally speaking, that money adds up to about 186 tons of gold bullion. The uncertainties of Brexit seem to have caused a massive surge in gold demand in a very short period of time. It’s a huge amount of gold, and it compounds the point I have been making for a long time. World gold demand far outstrips supply.

Is the U.K. destined to replace China as the world’s largest gold buyer?  Doubtful.  Tiny Britain, of course, is not normally a gold buying nation. It’s per-person gold demand has always been far smaller than countries like Italy, France and Germany. When the zombie Euro finally comes to an end in 2-3 years, and is buried, keep this in mind. If people in tiny normally gold-phobic Britain can buy 186 tons of the pretty yellow metal in just 3 months, can you imagine what is going to happen when the second biggest trading currency in the world ends?  There will be 340 million people suddenly stuck with national currencies they have no faith in.

What will they buy? You guessed right again!

As Europe moves further into perceived monetary instability, gold demand will skyrocket. I calculated in previous articles, that if the price of gold remained under $1,200 per ounce, the not-so-mysterious gold supplier of last resort would have been on the hook to supply up to 1,345 tons of gold last year. But, that’s not all, folks! The 2014 Society of Mining Professors report, using data from Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, Société Générale (SG), AME, and Bloomberg, determined that world gold supplies (from mines, scrap recovery, ETF sell-offs, and hedging) were about 4,476 in 2012, 4,850 in 2013, 4,155 tons in 2014, and will be 3,845 tons in 2015 and 3,585 tons in 2016.

Lets add 186 tons worth of this previously unknown British demand, and subtract 260 tons from supply. The result is that some “not-so-mysterious supplier of last resort” will need to pony up as much as 1,790 tons of gold to keep prices under $1,200 per troy ounce. All of this comes at a time when the banksters’ “Patsy” has just gotten a new papa. He doesn’t like the fact that she’s been abused for so long and he says as much. Whether it’s China or the banksters, this new papa ain’t nearly as dumb as the old one. They’ve abused the sweet thing, pretty badly, over the years and he isn’t gonna’ let her date them anymore.

To be fair, supply may be a bit higher or lower than was estimated and the same can be said for demand. I used the older numbers because I didn’t want to sit for an hour or two finding the most recent ones. You can use my prior work as a template, and update everything yourself, to get the exact numbers. But, any discrepancies are not significant enough to materially change the outcome or the point. There is an enormous gap between supply and demand which someone has been filling. When they stop, and they are about to do just that, prices will skyrocket. How far they will go is anyone’s guess, but up they must travel.

As stated, previously, once Donald J. Trump takes office, it is almost certain that the official US gold reserves will be closed off. Is it any wonder that the manipulators recently engineered a long squeeze in gold prices for the purpose of bringing down prices so they can exit less painfully? They want out and for good reason! There is simply no way to meet the kind of demand we are seeing for gold at its current price without further raids on the US gold reserves. Remember, the same banks that manipulate COMEX prices would also be forced to ship physical gold to buyers in India, China, Turkey and, yes, now the U.K.!  They can’t avoid it, because if they do, the whole rotten system will be discredited.

Conclusion? Gold prices are headed strongly upward in the near future.

WHAT HAPPENED TO GOLD & THE U.S. DOLLAR AFTER ITALY’S “NO” VOTE?

Map-Europe emphasis Italy

Written by Avery B. Goodman

If natural market forces were permitted to run free, naive folks would win the game. Insiders would lose a fortune, and independent gambling speculators would make a killing at the expense of well-connected casino operators (a/k/a derivative-issuing bankers). What possesses otherwise intelligent people to believe that this would ever be allowed? Was anyone naive enough to expect anything other than a major intervention by central planners to support the Euro?

There are always ridiculous excuses given. From technical analysis, to astrology to Elliott waves, it is all nonsense. What we saw was pure market manipulation and nothing but that. When you see the Euro rise when it should fall, you can bet that two institutions are involved. I am talking about the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of International Settlements (BIS). I didn’t mention the U.S. Treasury or the Federal Reserve. No doubt, they had some peripheral involvement as they always do, but mostly, they were probably observers.

European institutions have the kind of open, obvious and blatant disregard for honest markets that no equally corrupt American institution could ever get away with. In fact, the BIS has gone as far as touting its gold and currency manipulation prowess! For example, back in 2008, it issued a brochure for consumption by central bank policy-makers, and on page 17, it advertised that “our products” include “Gold & Forex Services — Interventions”!  In other words, they blatantly offered to rig gold and currencies upon request! This document came to light only by virtue of the hardworking and ever-watchful sleuths at GATA.

That was a long time ago. Let’s fast forward to now. The Euro’s exchange value has moved upward in direct opposition to the real market forces that should be weighing it down. The “no” vote in Italy has serious ramifications on the continued existence of the Euro currency, and its exchange value should have dropped like a stone. Instead, it went up. In contrast, the exchange value of the US dollar and gold, to the amazement of some (but not my readers) went down.

The reason is simple, and it has nothing to do with a sudden increase in confidence or desire to hold Euros. Just the opposite. However, a group of bureaucrats want the public to think otherwise. They want to bury the Euro on a schedule they create, not on the one that is determined by market forces. In order to do that, they hired some banksters, probably through BIS, paid them a lot of money, and watched as market “magic” was done. The exchange value of important non-Euro currencies, like the dollar and gold, suddenly came under attack. The now-zombie Euro, in contrast, rose against all odds.

This situation is a little more complicated than the usual manipulation. The same bankers are (were) engaged in inducing a dollar short squeeze not too long ago. The upward dollar manipulation has probably not quite run its course. It doesn’t matter. The juicy profits stemming from a day to a few days of government subsidies combined with an opportunity to front-run a sure-thing more than makes up for any delay. There is nothing like big covert private profits to go along with a fat payment for services rendered.

None of it should worry gold investors in the medium to longer term. Brussels does not wield the kind of market power that Washington D.C. does. It is a host of different nations, often jealous of one another. Each has its own, often conflicting economic view, and each has separate control over separate gold reserves. The European globalists don’t need to be as powerful or ambitious as their American counterparts. They don’t need to control the gold or dollar currency markets for very long.

Brussels’ bureaucrats simply want to keep their zombie currency going even in death, just a little longer. If they can just keep things moving long enough, the transition into what is coming will be smoother, and can occur at a time when well-connected players are ready for it. The banksters are those well-connected players, and a day or two respite from their dollar short squeeze activities doesn’t harm them. In fact, it gives short position holders a respite to make the mistakes that will soften them up for more attacks.

In a month or two, the dollar really will fall against the Euro. You may think that’s an amazing statement, given that I just called the Euro a zombie currency. But, none of it really matters until the very end. A zombie can still attack a living human and eat his brain. It doesn’t matter that the zombie is dead. These interventions are significant because they will convince folks that the Euro isn’t going away (even though it is). The Euro will disappear from the world in 2 – 4 years, but that doesn’t mean it can’t rise against the dollar beforehand. We’ll discuss that another day. For now, let’s just say there will be a lot of rising and falling before the zombie is buried.

What matters most now is market rigging. I don’t have space to describe how it’s done. If you are interested, read “The Synod” and find out.  Recommend it to friends and family. Lend your copy to others. Express your enthusiasm by leaving a review on the book’s Amazon.com and other book retailer sales pages, as well as by writing on blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Word of mouth and the power of the pen all help to popularize ideas. A lot more people read fast-moving thrillers than intense financial articles like this one. Yet, everyone will be critical when it comes time to broaden the discussion of honest money and markets.

In any event, the recent “no” vote in Italy should have pounded the last nail into the Euro coffin. That hasn’t happened.  The ECB will now distribute sufficient new cash to keep most Italian banks from failing. However, it doesn’t have the resources to mount attacks on the yellow metal for long periods of time. Unlike in the USA, the constituent central banks of Europe are separate. Many are acutely aware that gold reserves will be critical to insure public confidence. European governments will not willingly sell their reserves. Financial Eurocrats, thinking about supporting the Euro by pissing away national gold reserves, should remember that Europe is the birthplace of the guillotine.

At any rate, the market manipulation of the euro’s exchange rate has been a success. The intervention was designed to prevent a sudden and complete collapse. It was not designed to make a long term impact on the propensity of investors to choose gold or even the U.S. dollar. The main factor in gold pricing, going forward, is going to be the closure of the US gold reserve as I discussed in my prior article. Gold prices should begin to rise by late December, 2016 or before, as the cutoff of US government gold draws near.

Going forward, remember that it is easier to manipulate the paper gold market upward than downward. That is because of the physical delivery that comes into play when you manipulate it below the equilibrium between supply and demand. Therefore, watch carefully as government-subsidized downward manipulation is replaced with privately financed upward manipulation. For example, if bullion banks know that supply/demand meets at $1,600 (a guesstimate), they may push prices to a $1,700 floor (where no deficit will exist) and then on to $2,100. Then, they can take short positions, letting prices plummet back to $1,700. Rinse and repeat, over and over, upping the floor and the top, depending on what their algorithms suggest, as the willingness to buy at higher prices deepens with time.

What should a person who is concerned about saving for the future of himself and his family do? We live in an uncertain world, and unless you are tightly connected to the powers that make big financial decisions, you should not engage in leveraged speculation in anything. Yet, amid the confusion, one certainty stands out. In the very long run, fiat currencies always devalue. Thus, a certain percentage of your savings should be in gold, silver and platinum, rather than in Euros or dollars. These assets should be bought after big price declines, not big price increases. Now is a good time to pick them up on the cheap.

Written by Avery B. Goodman

Some folks were skeptical when I said President-Elect Donald J. Trump is going to be a gold-friendly President. In my article, “Understanding Elections, Gold & The US Dollar Via Market Manipulation“, published on November 22, 2016, I suggested that the banksters now expect their access to the US gold reserve to be cut off. To understand how the banksters manipulate markets, read the novel “The Synod”.

Many patriots are disgusted by the corruption at the US Treasury and Federal Reserve, but have been downtrodden for so long, they find it hard to believe that things are finally about to change. But, they are! Yesterday, our incoming President met with John Allison, previously CEO of BB&T Bank and, more recently, President and CEO of the Libertarian think tank known as the Cato Institute. Like myself and other believers in honest money, he is a strong believer in the idea of reinstituting the gold standard. For example, in a piece published in the Cato Journal in 2014 he wrote, and I quote:

“We need a private, free-banking system based on a market standard such as gold. If the United States had continued with the classical gold standard instead of having instituted a government money monopoly in 1913, we would have learned through experimentation, as all markets do, and would have a radically better financial system and higher economic growth today.”

These are not the words of a corrupt bankster but, rather, of a true banker and patriot. They are music to my ears, and will be music for millions of Americans who have suffered for more than a century, under the tyranny of corrupt financial players. The banksters have ruined our economy and our social cohesion. The excretion of dishonest money (ie: paper & electronic dollars, euros, and pounds), controlled by no fixed standard, has triggered repeated booms and busts, allowing the well-connected banksters to profit while the rest of the population suffers.  Allison further wrote:

“Second, I would get rid of the Federal Reserve because the volatility in the economy is primarily caused by the Fed. Sound money matters. When the Fed is radically changing the money supply, distorting interest rates, and overregulating the financial sector, it makes rational economic calculation difficult. Markets do form bubbles, but the Fed makes them worse.”

The fact that the President-elect is meeting with him doesn’t mean he is going to get the appointment. Nor does it mean that that the USA is headed to a gold standard. Remember, a large part of our gold is probably already gone. It has been pissed away by the current administration as described in my previous article. However, the mere fact that Mr. Allison is being given serious consideration for appointment as U.S. Treasury Secretary provides a deep insight as to how the incoming Trump administration views gold.  Does anyone still doubt that the bankster’s access to America’s gold reserves is about to end?

Jill Stein and her supporters (George Soros?) thought they were all set, ready to bring question on the legitimacy of Donald J. Trump’s new Presidential administration. She was to serve as Hillary Clinton’s new public “avatar”, standing in for the Democratic nominee. She piled up the cash, obtaining nearly $7 million dollars, probably from Hillary Clinton supporters.

There was just one thing missing… careful attention to the calendar.
