It doesn’t happen every day that I receive an article that originates from Slovenia and surely not an article that addresses the subject of gold. Stephen Bogner of Rockstone Research sent me one and it is a very worthwhile one, written by Boris Gerjovĭc from Maribor, Slovenia. The study sheds light on one of the most often asked questions related to gold. Although the report originally dates from November 2014, it is of actual importance, now that Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen announced just a few days ago that the central bank is likely to be on track to raise interest rates this year. It is widely assumed that raising interest rates is negative to the price of gold so it is highly interesting to read what Mr. Gerjovĭc says about. As I believe his findings could be of great benefit to my audience, I am very pleased to present them, of course with thanks to the writer and his publisher.

King Midas lusted after it. The Incas worshipped it. Shiny flakes of it set off a 19th-century rush to California and ship captains never stop looking for it at the bottom of the sea. While gold has ignited passions for centuries, for today’s investors, it seems, the metal has lost its allure. After surging sevenfold during a 12-year bull market — a run matched by only a handful of assets, including U.S. Treasuries and stamps — investors sold it wildly in 2013. Another drop last year marked the first back-to-back annual declines in 14 years. Is the epic boom and bust in gold just another market cycle or is it a change in human appetites?

As you can see in the HOME section above, I found several news items that should be of great value to everybody who follows gold and related investments:
■ to begin with, the video of HSBC Chief Economist Stephen King who issues a warning on the global economy. What he says represents an outright bullish call on gold;
■ a very special report resulting from an extensive study that Boris Gerjovic did on the impact of interest rates on the price of gold; his conclusion should be comforting to the idea that the Federal Reserve may start increasing interest rates later in the year;
■ an impressive document from Nicholas Larking for Bloomberg on the rise and fall of gold;
■ two articles from Casey Research, one by Laurynas Vegys on the possible forthcoming update of China’s gold reserves figures and one by Jeff Clark who feels that history shows a gold bull market is fast approaching;
■ and an article from Zero Hedge that I left online because it is deals with the cornering of the silver market by JP Morgan.
I strongly advise you to spend some time on these articles and let their content sink into your minds. I am pretty confident that the events that we will see developing over the next few months will bring many parts of what you read, back into your memory.
Another news item that I would like to highlight in my comment is the news release that I signalled last week in the News Scroller here on site and in the Social Media when
reported their latest drill results from the Fire Creek project in Nevada, USA. Grades of • 13.5 oz/t (461.6 g/t) AuEq over 11.5 ft (3.5 m), • 5.1 oz/t (174.3 g/t) AuEq over 3.2 ft (1.0 m), • 64.0 oz/t (2,194.7 g/t) AuEq over 1.1 ft (0.3 m), • 1.5 oz/t (52.7 g/t) AuEq over 12.3 ft (3.7 m), and • 2.1 oz/t (72.0 g/t) AuEq over 4.4 ft (1.3m) have become pretty rare these days. They do clearly demonstrate the high grade nature of the deposit which is growing into a significant second source of feed to the mill at their Midas Mine. Drilling is continuing with results expected to be released in the second half of this year. It also confirms that Klondex is a winner, beating the trend of the gold markets. A stock to own!
Much lesser nice was the major news that came from the U.S. Justice Department, when U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced that five of the world’s major financial firms have agreed to plead guilty to felony anti-trust violations for their role in a currency manipulation scandal. It came not really as a surprise because it was widely believed that these and probably many other banks were involved in forex schemes and manipulations. The surprise is more that these fraudulent bank activities are now openly confirmed. A sixth bank followed a few days later with the confession that they violated interest rate regulations and policies.
The scale of the manipulations is reflected by the fines that the guilty banks will have to pay. The six banks together received fines to a total of $5.8 billion! And I am sure that this is not all the bad news. Several other investigations are still going on to the banks behaviours, more scandals will come out in the open and criminal charges may very well come forward. Nevertheless, I am afraid that the banks will just pay their fines and get away with it. After all, if the banks will get into financial trouble by these levied fines, they have a pretty good chance that the same governments that fined them will bail them out (again). I can’t help it but since the news confirmation came out, one more question has been nagging me: will there also be an investigation coming that could result in confirmation that these and/or other banks have been actively involved in the manupilation of the gold markets? Let’s wait and see……
