Rob McEwen Talks About the Gold Market

UBS is predicting a ‘major gold rally’ this year.

So, the conclusion from UBS?  As analyst Julien Garren explains in a note, the role the U.S. economy plays in influencing commodity prices is a delicate dance, but providing investors can be patient, it’s a winner for gold. Part of the selloff for gold last week was blamed on Fed minutes that  triggered worries the central bank would wrap up its big asset-buying program faster than expected.  LINK...

Minting Coins Cost U.S. Taxpayers $436 Million

Bloomberg: By Max Raskin & Ilan Kolet - Feb 20, 2013 6:00 AM ET
Pennies and nickels have cost more than their face value to mint since 2006, resulting in a loss of at least $436 million to U.S. taxpayers.   LINK...
The "Spin Doctors" are working over-time. This loss is the result of government spending and expansion of money and credit by the FED. Devaluing the currency to buy commodities. Think about it, if you saved your "copper" pennies and "nickel" nickels, they are worth much more now (www.coinflation.com). The taxpayers are losing but they are NOT to blame. Following the Canadian example means "rounding-up" prices to the nearest nickel. In other words INFLATION!   BK

CIBC CEO Calls For Voluntary Contributions to CPP
In an unusual step, a bank CEO is admitting that private savings vehicles, such as RRSPs, aren't going to be enough to ensure adequate retirement savings for millions of Canadians.

Thirty years ago $1.00 bought 4L of gasoline, now when you receive that same $1.00 back from your pension you can't even buy 1L of gasoline. Thirty years ago 4 silver quarters (or $1.00) bought 4L of gasoline, today 4 silver quarters buys 16L of gasoline! Makes you wonder what pensions are good for?   BK

When you remove Washington you have

When you remove Kennedy you
have silver worth $10 today.

Central Banks Are Net Buyers of Your Gold

"For every buyer, there is a seller and for every seller there is a buyer." Just a reminder that markets are a zero sum game.

Don't give up your gold, it's the LEGACY ASSET that Central Banks are after, and they'll do everything in their power to get it from you. The best thing to do is hold your position or buy more if you can.   BK

Gold vs Silver vs BRK.A vs DJIA

The simple facts:

$100,000.00 invested in the January of 2000 would give you the following as of January 2013.

Warren Buffet is with no doubt one of the greatest investors of our time. How could it be that an asset like gold and silver (that just sit there and do nothing) could outperform his stock by so much? As the old saying goes, "Don't Fight the FED."

The fact of the matter is; when Central Banks and governments are determined to expand money and credit, the best strategy is to buy gold and DO NOTHING! Don't trade, don't plan and don't move. Thirteen years of doing nothing, and you would have outperformed the best investment minds in the industry!

Central Banks Buy most gold in 50 years:

Let the Central Banks do all the work for you. All you have to do is protect your gold and be patient. BK

Putin Turns Black Gold Into Bullion as Russia Out-Buys World

By Scott Rose & Olga Tanas - Feb 10, 2013 3:00 PM ET

When Vladimir Putin says the U.S. is endangering the global economy by abusing its dollar monopoly, he’s not just talking. He’s betting on it.
Not only has Putin made Russia the world’s largest oil producer, he’s also made it the biggest gold buyer. His central bank has added 570 metric tons of the metal in the past decade, a quarter more than runner-up China, according to IMF data compiled by Bloomberg. The added gold is also almost triple the weight of the Statue of Liberty.   LINK...

Silver: The Element of Change (Video)

With all these positive fundamentals for silver, it is still way below its 1980 high of $50/oz, while all other precious metals and base metals are above their 1980 high. Those who think that we're at the end of this bull run in precious metals are going to have a rude awakening. Maybe not this year, but certainly in the years ahead.   BK
