• Tollvesenet har i sommer fattet et vedtak på en av våre importsendinger som går imot tidligere praksis, og som etter vår mening er i strid med gjeldende lovverk. Tollvesenet vil heretter ikke anerkjenne sølv- og gullmynter (definert som "legal tender" i sitt opprinnelsesland) som fritatt merverdiavgift. Dette betyr at alle innførsler av typiske investeringsmynter til Norge vil kunne bli belastet med 25% mva., på tross av at myntene er gitt legal tender status med pålydende valør.

    Realverdier.no vil dessverre ikke kunne innføre flere investeringsmynter inntil prinsipielt svar på vår klage til Tollvesenet/Skatt Øst (minus 7 vedlegg) foreligger.

The Stock Market Is Overvalued Based On This

As Americans place a record amount of bets into a stock market that continues to rise towards the heavens, few realize how much the Dow Jones Index is overvalued. While some metrics suggest that the Dow Jones Index is very expensive, there is another indicator that shows just how much of a bubble the market has become. If we compare the Dow Jones Index to the price of oil, we can see how much the market has to fall to get back to a more realistic valuation. For example, if the Dow Jones Index were to decline to the same ratio to oil back to its low in early 2009, it would need to lose 14,500 points or 65% of its value. To get an…

Time to Get Defensive If You’re in the Stock Market; David Morgan: Fed’s Tightening

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up we’ll welcome back our good friend David Morgan of the The Morgan Report. David has some interesting things to say about the dollar, shares his research on the inverse correlation between stocks and metals and gives us his thoughts on when he expects to see gold and silver finally breakout. Don’t miss another wonderful interview with the Silver Guru, David Morgan, coming up after this week’s market update. As trading for the third quarter winds down today, investors should prepare to face some new headwinds in the fourth quarter. Beginning in October, the Federal Reserve will engage in so-called Quantitative Tightening. The Fed will allow some of its bond holdings to leave its…

Stock Investors Should Brace for the Fed’s October Tightening Gambit

September’s Federal Reserve meeting left interest rates unchanged but sounded a hawkish tone. The Fed seems intent on hiking interest rates again come December. Following Fed chair Janet Yellen’s remarks this Tuesday, interest rate futures markets bumped up the odds of a year-end rate hike to 81%. The more immediate – and perhaps more important – policy move pending from the central bank is its plan to gradually reverse its Quantitative Easing bond buying program starting in October. Yellen calls it “balance sheet normalization.” She is right in acknowledging that there’s nothing normal about the $4.5 trillion balance sheet the nation’s currency custodian has built up following the financial crisis of 2008. Whether the Fed’s bond portfolio ever will get “normalized” to pre-crisis levels will…

U.S. Retirement Market Ponzi Fueled By Concentration In Stocks By Young Americans

For the U.S. Retirement Market Ponzi Scheme to continue, there must be a new group of suckers to pay for the individuals who are receiving benefits. Without a new flow of funds, the Ponzi Scheme comes crashing down. Such was the case for the individuals who invested in the $65 billion Bernie Madoff Ponzi Scheme that came crashing down in 2008. Interestingly, the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) that investigated Madoff Securities in 1999, 2000, 2004, 2005, and 2006, found no evidence of fraud or the need for legal action by the commission. The failure of the SEC to find any wrong-doing by Bernie Madoff should provide Americans with plenty of reassurance and confidence that their 401k’s are the highest quality sound investments in…

Sanctions on North Korea, War on Crypto-Currencies

The dangerous provocations between North Korea and the United States haven’t yet escalated enough to rattle financial markets. The U.S. stock market notched another new record high last week, helping to blunt safe-haven demand for gold and silver. The North Korea situation is, however, causing political reverberations in the crytpo-currency markets. Following China’s recent crackdown on crytpo-currency exchanges, U.S. officials may be gearing up for a regulatory attack on Bitcoin as part of an economic sanctions package. Enter Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey (D). In an interview on CNN last Friday, Markey said, “The only answer is to go to final sanctions on the North Koreans… The crypto-currency Bitcoin, which they are using to supply funding to their economy – all of it should be shut…

Governments Attack Bitcoin; Stefan Gleason: Managing Risks, Selling Metals, and Demystifying IRAs

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up we’ll here part two of an interview Money Metals president Stefan Gleason did with Alan James on the Sustainable Money Podcast. Stefan gives some more advice on what to look for when choosing a precious metals dealer, when and how to sell when the times comes, and also talks about some of the ins and outs of gold and silver IRAs. Don’t miss the conclusion of this informative interview, coming up after this week’s market update. Precious metals markets got hit this week by a more hawkish than expected Fed. On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve kept its benchmark interest unchanged but signaled it may hike in December. Fed officials also doubled down on…

David Smith: Why I didn't sell Gold and Silver in 2011

I’d like to share a personal investment tale with you, the origins of which go back a ways. I became involved in physical precious metals/futures trading in 1972 after reading Harry Browne’s book, How to Profit from the Coming Devaluation. Not unlike David Morgan (before we knew each other) I accumulated metal and silver futures contracts, and rode prices into the March 1980 top. I sold my futures, but held the metal until the Hunt Brothers were knocked out of the game after the CRIMEX changed the rules to contract-offset only, collapsing the silver price. I watched silver drop through Harry Browne’s «sell if it goes below $37.50» call to $10.80. Then, during a classic 50% retracement to $25, I asked my broker where he…

Investors Won’t Be Buying Gold & Silver until AFTER Big Gains Occur

Physical demand for bullion rounds, coins, and bars remains somewhat soft in the U.S. This year’s run higher in prices as well as rising geopolitical tensions has whet the appetites of some investors, but it has not yet triggered broad participation. Only the contrarians have capitalized on gold & silver’s advance since 2015. With strong gains both this year and last, metals prices have been responding to a host of issues – from unrestrained federal borrowing to the prospect of nuclear exchange. But they haven’t moved up as much as many expect. After advancing dramatically in the prior decade, gold and silver have not responded as strongly to the explosive money creation and debt of the last few years as stocks have. And while predictions…

Mexico Monetizing the Silver Libertad Coin Could Bring Trouble

Recently, there was a debate in the Mexican Congress on the proposal to monetize the Silver Libertad Coin. The debate took place during a forum for “The Promotion of Savings for Mexicans.” If Mexico decided to monetize its Silver Libertad Coin, it could have a severe impact on the silver market and price. How much of an impact would the monetization of the Mexican Silver Libertad have on the market? There could be serious ramifications if we consider the vast amount of silver consumed by the minting of Mexican silver coins in the past. Before I get into that data, let’s look at the following text from the article, The Mexican Congress Debates the Monetization of the ‘Libertad’ Silver Ounce, on Hugo Salinas Price’s plata.com…
