Important Message From David Schectman

Andy Hoffman will no longer be contributing to our newsletter or blog for Miles Franklin.  We appreciate everything Andy has done for Miles Franklin.  He is very talented, and encyclopedic when it comes to facts and past industry history. I discovered Andy nearly a decade ago and was taken by his passion and his knowledge of our industry.  He worked long hours promoting his view of the world in our daily newsletter and on podcasts. For a long time, Andy shared the newsletter load with Bill Holter and myself.  Each of us had a different writing style – and often a different slant on what was happening in the marketplace. A year ago, Bill stopped contributing regularly to Miles Franklin to partner up with Jim Sinclair at JSMineset.  Around the same time, I cut back on my writing and the newsletter gradually became a platform for Andy Hoffman’s views.  Andy Hoffman was contracted to be a spokesperson for Miles Franklin.  Our views and philosophies were to be featured.  When Andy’s views and our views were on the same wavelength it worked very well.

Historical Review

I keep hearing comments about how poorly gold has performed compared to the stock market. "If I had only put my money into the stock market instead of gold, I'd be far better off." Yes, that is true if you knew how the stock market and gold would have performed in...

Early Morning Thoughts

I got up early this morning – 5:30 Eastern Time here in Boca Grande, FL.  Gold was up $12.30 to $1073.30.  Silver was up $0.14 to $13.97.  That’s a nice way to start off the New Year. Susan and I have been staying with our friends Jim and Diane Cook in Boca Grande...

Response To Martin Armstrong’s Comments

One of our clients sent us a quote from Martin Armstrong (Armstrong Economics) and asked us what we though about it. Here is what Armstrong wrote: Quote from Armstrong Economics Blog "Dealers will not ship any coins, even collector coins, to Minnesota. Why? Because...

Central Banks Could Lose Control of Fiat Money Creation

Why did gold and silver get hammered during the low volume trading hours leading up to Thanksgiving? My friend, Trader David R, who is a professional trader with a view from the inside says, “The commodity funds sold gold and silver to raise capital to meet their massive margin calls on underwater positions in commodities – especially oil and copper.“

Smart Money Knows Where This Is Headed

This recent mid-term election offers all the proof you need to see that most Americans are fed up with the way things are headed. They may not know the reality of it (as hopefully you do), but they know things are not headed in the right direction.

Deflation Is On Our Doorstep

I have been reading many articles that state deflation is on our doorstep and inflation is no longer a concern. Harry Dent is one of the strongest proponents of deflation. And the Elliott Wave crown has re-surfaced.

Gold And Silver Will Win

There is a new “official” policy in effect to screen flights to the U.S. (especially from West Africa) for people who exhibit Ebola-like symptoms, such as a fever or the flu. Have we gone too far with this? I remember a story my father told me when I was very young.

Manipulation Has the Upper Hand for Now

Just about the time I was starting to wonder what happened to Larry Edelson, up pops his latest release. He starts off with the prediction that the bull market is not over and gold will top $5,000 but first, gold will test the $1,000 level by the end of the year or by next spring – then, off to the races.
