Jason Stevens- $8 Billion Waiting To Be Invested In Mining Stocks

from Financial Survival Network

We spoke with Sprott Global’s Jason Stevens.

He’s not at all discouraged by the recent price action in gold and silver. He expects to see the gold price stay in the $1250 to $1400 range for a while. But the miners have already learned to exist and thrive in this environment and when the price eventually increases the miners will really profit.

There’s still plenty of bargains and now is a good time to be looking closer at them.

Scotland May Find it Has No EU, No Currency, and Not Much Oil

Much of Scotland’s projected oil wealth will no longer exist due to spectacular advances in energy science taking place at elite universities

by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

By the time an independent Scotland is allowed into the European Union – perhaps in the early 2020s, perhaps later unless Spain, Italy and others relent – the world’s oil industry will already be in structural decline.

Much of Scotland’s projected oil wealth will no longer exist, rendered obsolete by spectacular advances in energy science taking place at elite universities in the US, backed by the US Energy Department and the Pentagon. Both Washington and Beijing were shocked out of complacency by the 2008 oil crisis, but few seem to have noticed this in Scotland.

There is a strangely dated feel to the claims and counter-claims of the Yes and No sides on the scale of Scotland’s reserves, as if we are still living in the 20th century.

Goldman’s Former Head Of Housing Research Predicts Housing Crash, Recession Within Three Years

from Zero Hedge

It’s one thing for contrarian financial websites to accurately predict the transitory phase and housing price dead cat bounces which are only sustained by the unholy trinity of foreclosure bottlenecks (which are simply supply-side subsidies), offshore money laundering into US real estate (thanks to the NAR’s AML requirement exemption) and Wall Street-as-a-Landlord (through REO-to-Rent and other Fed-funded programs): after all the point of such correct analyses is to be ignored and blasted as conspiracy theories until they are proven, inevitably, correct.

But when a former Goldman executive and the previous head of its housing research team comes out with a shocking analysis so contrary to what the same individual would do in his “former life” when he would be extolling the inevitably rise of home prices from here to eternity and beyond, and also throw in an open letter to none other than president Obama, predicting at least a 15% crash in home prices in the next three years, a move which would without debt catalyze the next US recession, it is time for everyone to pay attention.

FOMC Statement Sends Dollar Higher, Gold Lower

by Dan Norcini
Trader Dan Norcini

The big thing that traders are taking away from today’s much anticipated FOMC statement is the $10 billion further reduction in QE which is now down to $15 billion/month. Of that remaining $15 billion in QE, $10 billion consists of Treasuries and $5 billion of MBS debt. The Fed is on track to wrap up QE completely next month and that is what has traders pushing the Dollar higher and gold lower. Simply put, the era of abundant liquidity here in the US appears to be over. Note to QE taper deniers- you had better wake up in a real hurry. The market is telling you clearly that it believes the Fed.

Not that the Fed is in a hurry to raise short term interest rates. That still does not look as if it is going to happen any time soon.

Now We’re Training ISIS?

by Karl Denninger

The US House has just voted on Obama’s proposal to train and arm “moderate” Syrian rebels.

You know what the definition of a rebel is, right? One who is attempting to overthrow by force of arms the sitting government.

So now, into the breach we go again, arming people trying to shoot political leaders. For real, not at the ballot box.

And we’ll double-pinky-swear that none of this will go into the hands of the same groups that are cutting off the heads of journalists or threatening to blow up dams near cities.

Celente: Propaganda Aside, It’s Bad Out There & Getting Worse

from King World News

On the heels of the announcement from the Fed, today the top trends forecaster in the world warned King World News that despite the propaganda, it’s bad out there and it’s getting worse. Celente also discussed the gold market. Below is what Gerald Celente, founder of Trends Research and the man considered to be the top trends forecaster in the world, had to say in this timely and powerful KWN interview.

Celente: “The Fed just tapered a bit more, so they are only pumping $15 billion a month into the system. But I think it’s more important to note that the OECD is cutting its assessment for global growth, and they are warning of a possible high risk environment as well….

How to Invest in a Strong Dollar World

by Chris Mayer
Daily Reckoning

“We continue to believe that we are moving into a ‘strong U.S. dollar world,’” Louis-Vincent Gave, the investment strategist, wrote in a recent note to his investors. “This makes for a very different set of winners and losers, and very different portfolios, than what most investors have been used to over the past decade or so.”

I think there is a good case for a strong U.S. dollar for the rest of this year and into next. We’ll look into the argument here and what its chief effect is likely to be.

Gave’s comments inspired me to set down my own. In his note, Gave shared the chart below. It shows the dollar index since circa 1985. The dollar index measures the value of the dollar against a basket of foreign currencies. The euro makes up more than half the index (and European currencies did before the creation of the euro). The yen, pound and Canadian dollar fill out the bulk of the rest of the basket.

Dot Plot Shows Fed Will Be Quick About Raising Rates, Once it Starts

by Rex Nutting
Market Watch

Once the Federal Reserve begins raising rates, it’s likely to raise interest rates at nearly every meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee for two years, according to the dot plot released by the Fed today.

The federal funds rate is now between 0% and 0.25% and is likely to remain there for a “considerable time,” the Fed said Wednesday. But by the end of 2017, the majority of the committee expects the fed funds rate to rise to around 3.75%.

The Fed usually raises rates in quarter-point moves. That means the end game of 3.75% is 13 rate hikes away.

Social Darwinism

from Jesse’s Café Américain

The Aktion T4 Programme provided the expertise, the administrative practices, and the bureaucratic rationales required to build the mass extermination facilities and the camps.

The beginning of social Darwinism is financial Darwinism, the unjust and willful allocation of means and opportunity. This enriches the favored, and permits the oppressed to be more easily labeled as inferior, useless eaters, life unworthy of life.

You may try to help them, but they are sub-human, and stubbornly beyond redemption. It is a difficult task, but someone must do it. As the superior few, we must do those hard things for the good of all. It is our destiny. Thinning their ranks at a distance becomes easy to rationalize, and after a time a purely practical routine, like cutting the grass.

Brookings Institution’s Wessel: ‘We May Be on Verge’ of Currency War

by Dan Weil
Money News

The global economy “may be on the verge” of a currency war, as the Bank of Japan and European Central Bank (ECB) ease policy vigorously to stimulate their moribund economies, says David Wessel, director of the Brookings Institution’s Center on Fiscal & Monetary Policy.

Countries seek to depress their currencies to boost exports. A weaker currency makes a country’s exports cheaper in foreign currency terms.

“Japan has already managed to depreciate its currency,” Wessel writes in The Wall Street Journal. The dollar hit an almost six-year high against the yen Friday and traded at 107.33 yen Wednesday morning.

The 314-Member Club — With $81 Billion in Their IRAs

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

Yesterday the Senate Finance Committee convened a hearing to chew on one humdinger of a new report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The GAO report found that 314 taxpayers have squirreled away at least $25 million in their Individual Retirement Account (IRA) for an aggregate of $81 billion for all 314 taxpayers. That puts the average account within the $81 billion at an astonishing $258 million.

The GAO used 2011 data, the most current available to them from the IRS, and noted that since some of the tax returns were for joint filers, the term “taxpayer” may mean an individual or a couple. Still, even two IRA accounts tallying up to $258 million is off the charts.

The figures are raising eyebrows in Congress. No one can say with any certainty how an IRA could grow to such astronomical sums. IRAs have only been around since 1975. Adding to the perplexity, the GAO calculated that if a person made the maximum IRA contributions from 1975 through 2011 and invested the money in the Standard and Poor’s 500, it would have grown to only $353,379.

Got (Record-High-Priced) Milk?

from Zero Hedge

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s low PPI and this morning’s falling CPI, we thought it worth noting (given The Fed’s pre-occupation that inflation is running too low) that the price of milk – that staple of the American diet – just hit an all-time high. Nope, no inflation here…

[...] As an aside, while correlation is not causation, the price of milk and the growth of the Fed Balance Sheet have an 82% correlation since March 2009.

Companies’ Stock Buybacks at Biggest Pace Since 2007; Companies Rewarding Investors?

by Mike “Mish” Shedlock
MISH’S Global Economic Trend Analysis

In yet another sign of market over-exuberance, the Wall Street Journal reports Share Repurchases Are at Fastest Clip Since Financial Crisis.

Corporations bought back $338.3 billion of stock in the first half of the year, the most for any six-month period since 2007, according to research firm Birinyi Associates. Through August, 740 firms have authorized repurchase programs, the most since 2008.

The growth in buybacks comes as overall stock-market volume has slumped, helping magnify the impact of repurchases. In mid-August, about 25% of nonelectronic trades executed at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., excluding the small, automated, rapid-fire trades that have come to dominate the market, involved companies buying back shares. That is more than twice the long-run trend, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Eric Coffin: Can Investors Still Find Tenbaggers?

by Kevin Michael Grace
The Gold Report

The continuing strength of the U.S. dollar is bad news for the price of gold, and Eric Coffin believes that in the short term a price of $1,200/oz is possible, though there is room now for an oversold bounce. This, of course, is bad news for gold miners and explorers. But in this interview with The Gold Report, the publisher of Hard Rock Analyst counsels that even in a bull market, investors are advised to seek out potential tenbaggers, and presents several companies in gold, base metals and uranium with the potential to flourish even in hard times.

The Gold Report: You told The Gold Report last year you were “neutral” on the state of the U.S. economy. Since then, the headline unemployment number has improved. Even so, as David Stockman, former director of the Office of Management and Budget, says, there have been no net new jobs created since July 2000, and jobs paying over $50,000 per year have disappeared by 18,000 per month since 2000. What is your view of the health of the U.S. economy?

Eric Coffin: I’m more positive than neutral these days, but I do agree somewhat with Stockman. As unemployment falls toward 6%, we would expect an increase in wage gains. But we’re just not seeing that. And five years into the latest expansion, we’re not seeing the economic growth spurts that tend to occur coming out of a really bad recession. I don’t see how the U.S. economy keeps reproducing the 4% Q2/14 growth if we don’t see higher wage gains and higher paying jobs created.

Wide World of Horrible Headlines

It’s (very) early Wednesday morning; and as I write, I can almost “feel” the banker-generated “eye of the storm” created by an historic mix of money printing, market manipulation and propaganda. No single issue stands out as any worse than the rest as we head into three days of potentially historic news flow. From this afternoon’s FOMC decision, to tomorrow’s ECB announcement regarding uptake of its “targeted long-term financing operation” money printing scheme, to early Friday’s Scottish independence referendum results and late Friday’s likely announcement that Moody’s is considering another French downgrade, the “wide world of horrible headlines” has never been uglier. Consequently, TPTB have maintained their ongoing market lockdown featuring a seemingly ceaseless string of “dead ringer” algorithms for the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average”…

It’s Not Just the Police – The Feds are Also Militarizing Public Schools with Grenade Launchers, M16s and Tanks

by Michael Krieger
Liberty Blitzkrieg

Events last month in Ferguson, Missouri (read my detailed thoughts here) forced Americans to confront the frightening reality that many of of the nation’s police departments have been quietly, but consistently, militarizing over the past couple of decades. It’s one thing to intellectually understand that this has happened, it’s quite another to see cops deploy tanks and point sniper rifles at peacefully protesting U.S. citizens.

Just as disturbing as the scenes themselves, is the fact that this has been happening for so long under the 1033 transfer program with only muted criticism. The program was originated in the late 1990?s under the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997 (recall that the NDAA is also being used to allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without trial), and it allows for the transfer of excess Department of Defense equipment to domestic police. In other words, it has been public policy for almost two decades to militarize the police.

The NEXT Reserve Currency

by Jeff Nielson
Bullion Bulls Canada

The U.S. dollar is dying an ugly death. The U.S. government knows it, and the bankers who run the U.S. government are certainly aware of it – since they are the ones who have (already) undermined its value to worthlessness.

Naturally, the dollar’s ugly death is never mentioned in the Corporate media. Even with the manipulation choke-hold which this banking cabal has over our so-called “markets”; it would be extremely difficult to pump-up the value of the dollar to its present, absurdly fraudulent level if everyone knew that this was a dying currency – which will be obsolete (and thus officially worthless) in a few year’s time.

A New Fed Playbook for the New Normal

by Peter Schiff
EuroPacific Capital

While many economists and market watchers have failed to notice, we have entered a new chapter in the short and checkered history of central banking. This paradigm shift, as yet unaddressed in the textbooks, changes the basic policy tools that have traditionally defined the sphere of macroeconomic decision-making.

The job of a central banker is supposed to be the calibration of interest rates to achieve the optimal rate of growth for any particular economic environment. It is hoped that successful decisions, which involve perfectly timed moves to raise rates when the economy overheats and lower them when it cools, would bring consistency and stability to the business cycle that many fear would be dangerously erratic if left unmanaged. That’s the theory. The practice is quite different.

Over the past thirty years or so, interest rates have been lowered far more often than they have been raised.

74% of All Municipals Want to Raise Taxes – Hello Deflation!

by Martin Armstrong
Armstrong Economics

Municipal governments are going broke everywhere. This entire structure of government would never have been designed even by a moron. In Germany. a survey of 300 municipalities shows that 74% are planning to raise taxes. Now 27% plan to increase their cemetery fees, 25% want to demand more money for attending daycare or day schools. 21% plan to increase the property tax assessment rate, and 13% intend to raise the dog tax. (see latest German survery)

We are headed into this Sovereign Debt Crisis and Western Society as we know it cannot POSSIBLY exist. The problem with politicians is they just look at the people as a bottomless-pit of revenue to be taxed at will. They have no grand plan nor have they ever contemplated the long-term viability of such a system with no fiscal restraints whatsoever. They never see themselves as part of any problem – it is always the cheating people who do not hand them everything they demand.
