  1. War?

    US wars are mostly driven by economics. Iran is moving away from trading their oil in dollars. (Gaddafi did the same as did Saddam Hussein). Iran also has one of the last central banks not controlled by the US. It's one of the founding members of an alternative to the IMF along with China and Russia. I'm pretty sure Trump will start a war with Iran but there will be no reason outside of upholding the $$$ to do so. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2015/06/01/russia-wants-to-convince-bric-partners-to-create-alternative-banking-system/#1a21dc1359af https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/01/01/how-united-iran-russia-china-changing-world-better.html As an interesting aside here's a graphic showing US military bases blocking China :
  2. 2018 Rwanda Lunar Dog

    GS.be went from pre-order tomorrow to sold out. Guess they are cashing in.
  3. Rwanda Lunar Dog silver proof or gold ?

    I don't like the look of the Dog. There seems to be mixed views on this so I suspect this will do well due only to the low mintage and hype. That's probably enough to maintain it's price going forward. As someone new to the hobby I;d appreciate hearing from anyone on what the Rwanda Mints reputation had been prior to the hype around the Rooster. Where they popular and how is their quality ?
  4. http://www.royalmint.com/our-coins/events/Platinum-wedding Interesting that they are doing a quarter oz platinum coin but not a quarter oz gold coin (if this is the complete range). Only 1,275 of the quarter oz being made : http://www.royalmint.com/shop/u/uk17pwqp The obverse portrait is interesting :

  6. market manipulation true or false

    Most of our present economic and banking systems are the antithesis of the "notions of intrinsic value". The population of our countries are the slaves of this fallacy, milked like cattle day in and day out by central banks.
  7. Gold distorting UK trade figures

    1. There is zero chance any political party will allow immigration to fall consistently - our economic system depends on it. The politicians who say they will are lieing. 2. Most people are deceived - immigration contributes in a small way to our schools and health care systems struggling, but the real problem is Government policy. There are half as many hospital beds as there has been in the past. Huge sums of money are being siphoned away from front line health care into establishing privatisation agreements. Until 2012 every single health authority was running at a surplus.
  8. market manipulation true or false

    This is unbalanced in a couple of ways. Firstly I'm not aware of anyone who has said silver will become extinct. What I believe has been put forward is that at some time in the future demand will outstrip supply with regard to affordable silver. That silver production will become increasingly more expensive and produce a significant rise in the value of silver. This video actually backs that up when it shows the mine going to ever greater depths to keep up with demand. Bottom line a lot of folks in this hobby are speculators. They have to make a judgement call on the available facts. I'd suggest there is enough evidence to state that the following are facts : i) the markets have manipulated the price of silver and have kept it repressed; ii) the present economic system that has repressed the price of silver is unsustainable - it demands constant growth; iii) significant world powers that are trying to move away from from this economic system - the dollar and our banking system/markets - are amassing enormous quantities of gold and silver. When you add that to the fact that silver will get ever more expensive to produce the best guess on the available evidence is that this is a great time to be buying.

    My mistake; now corrected.
  12. market manipulation true or false

    Agree Sixgun. The worlds trade in bullion is centred on the London Bullion Market (LBMA = London Bullion Market Association). The LBMA Silver is to be priced in Russian Rubles and Chinese Yuan from Sept 25 where it was previously only in $$$ http://www.silverdoctors.com/silver/silver-news/breaking-lbma-silver-to-be-priced-in-russian-rubles-and-chinese-yuan/ Venezuela has joined Iran and Russia in moving away from the $$$ and trading in Chinese Yuan. https://www.rt.com/business/403577-dropping-dollar-venezuela-oil-yuan/ As you've underlined, the Chinese are amassing huge amounts of gold and are going to use it to physically back the Yuan. This isn't a conspiracy theory about what might happen, it's what is happening now. Salient articles : Moscow And Beijing Join Forces To Bypass US Dollar In Global Markets, Shift To Gold Trade "The Russian central bank opened its first overseas office in Beijing on March 14, marking a step forward in forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in the global monetary system, and to phase-in a gold-backed standard of trade." http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-01/moscow-and-beijing-join-forces-bypass-us-dollar-global-markets-shift-gold-standard "Russia is preparing to issue its first federal loan bonds denominated in Chinese yuan. Financial regulators from the two countries agreed last May to issue home currency-denominated bonds in each other’s markets, a move that was widely viewed as intended to “dethrone” the US dollar." http://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy-defence/article/2079648/russian-central-bank-opens-first-overseas-office

  14. market manipulation true or false

    China and India are significantly increasing their reserves of precious metals; China in particular is amassing considerable gold reserves. Both of these countries along with Iran represent a future threat to the market and the dominance of the $. I don't think it's a conspiracy theory to think that the central banks around the world as well as those with massive monies in the markets will work against this. Not a coincidence btw that Iran and China (working with Russia) present the biggest challenge to the central banks and the $, having set up an alternative to the World Bank. IMO gold and silver will have their price artificially repressed over the short to medium term future. It's a losing battle. My view is the next few years will be a great time to buy.
