• 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.

SILVER SUPPLY: Critically Dependent On This Factor

Global silver supply is heavily dependent on one factor that is overlooked by the majority of precious metals analysts. For some odd reason, analysts only consider the cost of this factor and not the future supply. Without this supply, 98% of the silver production from these two primary silver mines would not have been possible. Without energy, silver mine supply would likely collapse more than 95+%. Unfortunately, analysts only focus on the cost of energy and not the future availability of it. For example, even though the cost of diesel for Pan American Silver was approximately 7-8% of its total mining costs in 2018, without the 15.4 million gallons of diesel consumed by the company’s mines, the overwhelming majority of that silver would have stayed…

Class-Action Suits May Eventually Result in Damages Paid Out to Cheated Metals Investors

Gold and silver investors have been watching the Department of Justice investigation of criminal price rigging at JPMorgan Chase and other bullion banks carefully. Several crooked traders have pled guilty to “spoofing” the markets and more have been indicted . The DOJ has even suggested the banks have been engaged in racketeering . Prosecutors may use RICO laws designed for taking down organized crime syndicates to prosecute these shady Wall Street firms. The banks’ problems go beyond the prospect of prison time for the perpetrators and criminal fines, however. Another of the troubles with running a years-long, well-organized and widespread scheme in which banks cooperated with one another to stick it to their clients and other naive people speculating in the futures market is that…

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up Michael Pento of Pento Portfolio Strategies joins me for another top-flight interview as we discuss some major stresses in the financial system that are going to result in some serious issues in the economy.

So be sure to stick around for my conversation with Michael Pento, coming up after this week’s market update. Precious metals markets are trading in wide ranges as they struggle to hold on to gains posted earlier in the week. As of this…

GOLD vs. PAPER MONEY

The U.S. Treasury printed another $243 billion worth of paper money in 2018, with the majority being issued as $100 Federal Reserve Notes. What’s interesting is that the Reserve Banks estimated the number of notes they were going to remove from circulation and destroy accounted for 75% of the U.S. Treasury 2018 print order. However, according to the FederalReserve.gov website, the currency in circulation in 2018 increased by approximately $100 billion: So out of the $243 billion in new printed Federal Reserve Notes in 2018, only $100 billion were used to increase the total Currency in Circulation. But, we also must take into consideration the stockpile of new notes sitting at the Federal Reserve Banks besides the new 2018 printed notes. Either way, the U.S….

Banksters Finally Hit with Racketeering Charges

JPMorgan Chase and other bullion banks spent most of a decade screwing clients and investors who were naive enough to expect a fair shake in the precious metals futures markets. It was a solid racket. Yet claims of price rigging were simply dismissed by financial journalists and regulators as conspiracy theory. The banks’ defenders were bolstered by a 5-year-long investigation by the compromised Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) which ended without a single banker being prosecuted. Many goldbugs wondered if the racket would continue forever. Fortunately, much has changed over the past three years. Department of Justice prosecutors were able to secure a guilty plea from Deutsche Bank in late 2016. The bank turned over 350,000 pages of documents and dozens of voice recordings as…

Panicky Fed Floods Overnight Markets w/ Cash; Elizabeth Warren Surges; Steve Forbes Speaks Out on Gold

I’m Mike Gleason and welcome to another addition of the Weekly Market Wrap Podcast. Later in today’s program we’ll hear from Forbes CEO, business icon and two-time presidential candidate, Steve Forbes. Mr. Forbes unloads on the Fed and its horrific track record — with accuracy that’s worse than a bunch of monkeys throwing darts at a dartboard, he says. Forbes discusses Donald Trump’s chances at reelection and lays out the case why you simply must have at least some gold in your portfolio. So be sure to stick around for an encore of Money Metals exclusive interview with Steve Forbes, coming up after this week’s market update. It’s been a big week of geopolitical strife and potential crisis points for financial markets. The week began…

'Spoofing' Isn't the Biggest Manipulation Going On

Delighted as we all may be with this week’s news – the new indictments of JPMorganChase employees involved with the gold market, the U.S. Justice Department’s designation of the investment bank as a criminal enterprise, and the prospects of more indictments – we have to admit a couple of things about the situation. First, the market manipulation of which the bank’s employees and supervisors stand accused – rigging prices largely by «spoofing» other traders – is not the sort of manipulation the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) long has complained about. This week, a reporter for a mainstream financial news organization on whose door I have pounded relentlessly without result actually sought comment about the indictments from me. But I had to disappoint him and…

Will War Drums, Inflation Fears Ignite Gold and Silver Markets?

Monday’s spike in crude oil prices could be a game changer – for geopolitics, for the economy, and for investors. Normally it would be foolhardy to draw big, sweeping conclusions from a single day’s trading activity. But in this case, it’s not just the fact that oil prices surged 13% to over $62/barrel. Or even the fact that more than 5% of the world’s oil producing capacity suddenly got taken offline. The world can cope with volatility in the energy market. An increasingly volatile environment for all assets presents much greater challenges. But few investors are positioned to cope with the rising risk of war in the Middle East. Few are prepared for the prospect of persistently higher energy prices and higher inflation. Even fewer…

JPMorgan’s Top Metals Trader in the Crosshairs for Illegal Manipulation

Michael Nowak, the global head of trading for both base and precious metals at JPMorgan Chase, has been charged by the US Justice department for his role in an illegal market manipulation operation. Executive Directors Gregg Smith and Christopher Jordan were also indicted. The three are the latest targets  in a widening DOJ criminal probe. Nowak and Smith and Jordan are the third, fourth and fifth persons to be charged in the criminal price rigging scheme at  JPMorgan. They may not be the last. The bank is the most infamous amongst precious metals investors who have been crying foul over obvious price manipulation for years.  Christian Trunz and John Edmonds, who worked for Nowak, have already pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with the investigation. They have outlined an operation…

Media Hypes Recession and Trump Proposes a Tax on Savings

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up, Axel Merk of Merk Investments joins me for a conversation on the latest central banking shenanigans, why he believes the economy may heat up again in the near term, and why the war on cash and the move to digital money will continue to drive people into gold. So don’t miss another great interview with Axel Merk, coming up after this week’s market update. Gold and silver markets are testing support levels this week. Gold has been hanging around the $1,500 level while silver trades sideways through Thursday’s close at just above $18 an ounce. As of this Friday recording, gold prices come in at $1,498 per ounce, down 0.7% for the week….
