ECB Loses Control Of The Situation And Looks For Scapegoats
Published by Philippe Herlin | Nov 25, 2021 | Articles 6166

The ECB is making a mockery of the world: it is shirking its responsibilities (printing money, zero interest rate), it is being lax with the banking system (insufficient capital), it refuses to recognize the damage it is causing (bubbles in equities, bonds and real estate), it refrains from lecturing governments with chronic deficits (France, Southern Europe), it is displaying objectives that are not within its direct competence (climate), and it is designating scapegoats in the event of a crash!

Backwardation On All The Metals
Published by Laurent Maurel | Nov 24, 2021 | Articles 6510

Gold-O-Mania Is Coming
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Nov 18, 2021 | Articles 5028

The ‘Great Resignation’ In The U.S. Prompted By Inflation
Published by Laurent Maurel | Nov 16, 2021 | Articles 9154

The central bank promised to reduce its asset purchases, but by refusing to hike its rates and continuing to grow its balance sheet, it is exacerbating the rise in prices even more. There is ever more money in circulation, chasing fewer and fewer tangible assets available. How do you expect the inflation to dissipate, in those circumstances?

A Turnaround In Gold In Relation To The Indices
Published by Laurent Maurel | Nov 10, 2021 | Articles 11817

The consumer prices index (CPI) published in the United States is a shock for the last of the faithful believers still clinging to the myth of ‘transitory’ inflation.

The Fed At An Impasse: Is The Price Of Gold Finally Going To Take Off?
Published by Laurent Maurel | Nov 4, 2021 | Articles 13698

With the sheer quantity of cash accumulated in bank accounts in Western countries, the disruption to supply chains and the melting of the stocks in the futures markets (the last ‘tools’ that are putting the brakes on the rise in precious metals), the virus of physical gold and silver will likely spread from China to the Western and when the economic difficulties catch up with us.
