Infinity is here!

Jim Sinclair coined the phrase "QE to infinity" back in 2009.  Few at the time really understood what he meant but then came QE 2, Twist, and QE 3.  The premise was that the Fed (central banks in general) could never really tighten credit or monetary conditions in the...

Opportunity knocks!

Bill Holter is our friend and a former associate writer for Miles Franklin. He passed this on to us for use in our daily.  We agree with everything he says in this article. I have worked in the precious metals industry for over 30 years and this is the lowest premium...

Fat tailed put option and the ultimate call…!

If one offered investors a fat tail put option that never decays or expires, costs about -1% pa to carry, has no counter party risk & no chance of ever becoming worthless, there would be a line out the door. But when one explains that this option is physical gold… no...

China’s “weight”

A couple of topics for you today that are connected, obvious, yet not understood or even contemplated at this point. First, have you ever wondered why the names of many fiat currencies refer to "weight"? Such as the Peso, Peseta, Lira, or Pound amongst many others?...

And they call us the crazies?

We posted this article over the weekend ...and they call us the crazies? Let's look at this from a very broad standpoint because if anything displays where we are as a world, financial and otherwise is captured right here! So, a bond offering with "the worst ever"...

“What” would you sell your gold for?

Over the years, I believe I've written on this topic three or four times but now it is even more relevant. "What" would you sell your gold for? The question is not "why" because the answer to this could be far ranging and differs by individual. You might want or even...

Crash alert #2!

I wrote "Crash Alert!" on Dec. 12, a little over a month ago https://www.milesfranklin.com/crash-alert-3/#respond Please re read this so we don't have to go over the nuts and bolts here. Since then, we watched equity markets all over the world take a dive into year...

Is this a joke?

As the year comes to a close, we all look back and reflect on what happened, what didn't, and what should or should not logically happen in the future. During some recent reflection, I could only laugh and finished my thoughts by thinking "is this a joke"? We all...

Crash alert!

People continually ask "when" will it happen? For the last 6 months we have responded "it is happening right before your very eyes"! In fact, as of this morning 52% of global markets are now down over 20% from their highs and qualifying as bear markets. Please...

Infinite growth in a finite world?

As I alluded to a couple of days ago, "look around, what do you see?". People who own precious metals are quaking in their boots at EXACTLY THE PRECISE TIME they should be comfortable. We have gotten many "scared" e-mails recently, some from people I would have never...

FAKE!!!

Life is different than it used to be in many ways. The pace is certainly much faster. Making ends meet, or even getting ahead is much more difficult than was just 20 years ago. Information overload is another recent problem that did not used to exist. While I am...

Back to basics with Exter’s pyramid

It is obviously time to go back to basics. I say this based on the emails we've received this week which ranged from tears to tirades regarding gold and silver price action. While speaking with a friend a few months back (during a period of price weakness), I said...
