• 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.

Outlook 2020: The Big Picture Backdrop for Precious Metals

The year ahead promises to be an eventful one. It will, of course, be dominated by political headlines leading up to the 2020 election. It could also be a big breakout year for precious metals. In the second part of Money Metals’ 2020 Outlook, we’ll drill down on the fundamental and technical setup for gold and silver… However, in this first part, we’ll set the stage by digging into the macro forces at play in the economy, monetary policy, politics, and geopolitics. Economy Over the summer, the mainstream financial media ran hard with the “recession” angle. A manufacturing slowdown seemed to be afoot. But the main impetus for all the recession talk was an inversion of the yield curve – putting short-term bond yields below…

As the Fed Reinflates Bubbles, Will Gold and Silver Shine?

Gold bugs are arriving at the end of both a year and an extraordinary decade. Precious metals prices had a roller coaster ride over the past ten years and finished mostly higher despite plenty of pain. Gold was priced at $1,096 on January 1, 2010. Silver opened the decade at $16.85, then spiked to over $49.00/oz before collapsing under $14… only to finish the decade around $18. Palladium enjoyed an extraordinary run higher from $406/oz to all-time highs at nearly $2,000 late this year. Platinum stumbled and fell, dropping from $1,467/oz ten years ago to under $1,000 today. Metals prices reflected three overarching stories in markets… The decade past was dominated by central planning, crooked bankers, and exploding debt at all levels. Metals investors are…

Precious Metals Quietly Booked Solid Gains in 2019; U.S. Public Sat Out

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up we’ll hear a fascinating and informative interview Money Metals president Stefan Gleason gave for the Sustainable Money podcast. Stefan shares some of the history behind sound money, when and where the wheels came off our monetary system, some disturbing developments in the war on cash movement and also goes through some dos and don’ts when it comes to purchasing gold and silver. You will not want to miss this revealing interview, coming up after this week’s market update. On this final Weekly Market Wrap Podcast of 2019, we’ll look back at the year that was in precious metals markets… and look ahead to how things might shape up for 2020. The year ahead…

The Signs Swirl All Around Us, so Is the Monetary Reset at Hand?

For most of this decade owning gold and gold-related investments has required the patience of Job, and the sector is so obscure that it is hard to be sure of anything. But for months now the unusual developments have been piling up so much that it may be possible to regain some optimism. There are indications of a shortage of metal not just at the New York Commodities Exchange, where for months now most contracts have been settled through a supposedly «emergency» procedure called «exchange for physicals,» but also in London, the hub of the world gold market, where the usual flow of metal to Switzerland recently reversed, with metal flowing back to London amid increasing demand. This corresponded with announcements of gold acquisitions by…

Will Negative Interest Rates Be the Last Straw?

Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP) was considered “extraordinary” when central bankers rolled that out roughly ten years ago. At that time, people would still have laughed at the idea of negative interest rates. Lenders didn’t pay borrowers and nobody paid their bank to hold their deposits. So much has changed in the past 10 years. Now negative interest rate policies (NIRP) look set to go viral . German banks will soon start toeing the European Central Bank line and pass negative rates on to depositors there. Germans who endured zero interest rates and somehow still want a savings account will now have to pay for the “privilege.” The idea is preposterous, and it is perverse. People build wealth and hold on to their liberty when…

Gold, Silver, & S&P 500 All Heading for Banner Year

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up Jp Cortez of the Sound Money Defense League joins us to discuss the latest on the state legislative front when it comes to taxation of gold and silver, an issue that is becoming more and more important for precious metals investors, many of whom are now facing the prospects of having to pay sales tax when they buy precious metals. Jp also gives a rundown on the 2019 Sound Money Index – a rating of which states are friendly towards precious metals, and which states are the enemies of sound money. So be sure to stick around for a fascinating and informative conversation with Jp Cortez of the Sound Money Defense League, coming…

THE GLOBAL DEBT TICKING TIME-BOMB: The Reason To Own Gold & Silver

As Global Debt reached a new record high of $250 trillion this year, gold and silver came briefly back on the radar for investors. After five long years, the precious metals finally broke through key technical levels this summer. However, after the Fed started the Repo Operations in September and the $60 billion a month of “Not-QE” in October, the focus returned once again to the Bloated Stock and Bond markets. What a drastic change from the Fed’s policy last year when it was reducing the size of its balance sheet until the stock market crashed in December 2018. Since then, the huge stock market reversal and all the additional gains have been Fed liquidity induced. Sven Heinrich continues to write and talk about this…

Understanding Gold (and Silver) Comes from the Heart, Not the Brain

The title of this essay is part of a statement made by Stewart Thomson, editor of the investment letter, Graceland Updates. His full comment reads, “It takes more than viewing charts and government debt numbers to understand gold as the world’s ultimate asset. What it really takes comes from the heart, not the brain.” For thousands of years, humankind has understood the magical draw (and sense of security) that owning precious metal can bring. It satisfies the core requirements that make it a medium of exchange par excellence. It’s durable. It’s divisible. It’s consistent. It’s convenient. It’s intrinsically valuable. There’s a sixth reason, which Doug Casey elaborates upon when he talks about gold’s attributes above. Unlike what David Morgan refers to as «paper promises» created…

Inflation Threat Looms in 2020 as Fiscal and Monetary Stimulus Ramp Up

The Federal Reserve left its benchmark interest rate unchanged as expected last week. However, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell made news with some of his most dovish remarks to date – stating flatly that he won’t hike rates again until inflation moves up significantly. “In order to move rates up, I would want to see inflation that’s persistent and that’s significant,” Powell said at a news conference following the Fed’s announcement. He would be anticipating “a significant move up in inflation that’s also persistent before raising rates to address inflation concerns.” He could get his wish in the months ahead as monetary policy, fiscal policy, and the economy all seem to be lining up to push the inflation rate higher. In 2020, inflation may become a…

Gold Mining Stocks Chart Pathway for Gold Breakout

Gold and silver prices remain mired in weeks-long trading ranges. They are essentially moving sideways – for now. Precious metals mining stocks, however, are moving up. The chart of the HUI gold miners index shows an uptrend in place since mid October. The HUI has traded above its 50-day moving average for several days in a row. The 50-day line itself is now also curling up, confirming underlying technical strength. If the HUI is a leading indicator for spot gold (and it often is), then gold prices may be on the verge of also breaking out. Gold closed last Friday right at 50-day moving average resistance. A couple strong closes above the 50-day line should put gold on a pathway to an extended rally. Silver,…
