Biderman Discusses Major Disconnect Between Stock Market and Economy on CNBC


Below: Santelli and Harris discuss Biderman’s earlier comments.

Chris Hamilton: Is the Printing of the Japanese Yen the Poison Pill for Gold??? The More Yen Japan Prints, the Lower the Price of Gold…Until???


Yen weakness is relative dollar strength is gold weakness…or said otherwise in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king. If the correlation hasn’t become obvious by now…the carry trade around the Yen and the BOJ’s plan to depreciate or bust seems to have rather outsized impacts across the market spectrum. My interest is the relationship of gold and the Yen. Seems the weakening of the Yen is driving the price of gold…down. Of course the Yen’s weakness is conversely the dollar’s relative strength…but from ’09 and particularly since Japan’s December 2012 turn to “Abenomics”, Gold and the Yen have moved tick for tick. The more Yen Japan prints, the farther the price of gold falls…ahhhh the irony that gold, the finite measuring stick of infinite currencies, seems now only to be measuring the depths TPTB will go to hide currencies relative worth!

Chris Hamilton: China Likely Bought 10,000 tons of Gold…and if They Did, Here’s Why


My article “10,000 tons of gold…The math says China could have easily done it!” explains how it’s possible or even likely China has amassed 10,000+ tons of gold. What it doesn’t explain is the context as to why this is so important. I know some now this story well, but for most, this needs repeating. READ MORE

Chris Hamilton: 10,000 Tons of Gold Bought? – The math says China could have easily done it!


Since August ’11 to August of ’14, China has decreased its holdings of US Treasury debt by $9 Billion (according to the most recent TIC data)…while continuing to run record trade surpluses with the US. This means China will have (by year end 2014) taken in $951 Billion in shiny, new, digital dollars since 2011 and simultaneously sold or rolled off $9 Billion in US Treasury holdings…so China will have had to find a home for $960 Billion new dollars.

Fraud by any other name is still fraud


By Chris Hamilton

Once upon a time, there was a thing called a “free-market” and for a time nations strove toward this ideal. To wit, a free market economy was a market-based economy where prices for goods and services would be set freely by the forces of supply and demand and allowed to reach their point of equilibrium without intervention by government policy, and it typically entailed support for highly competitive markets and private ownership of productive enterprises. But power and belief shifted and faith now resides in governmental fiscal policy (spend more, tax less) and central banker interest rate policy (make money ever cheaper) to avoid the free markets down-cycles and extend its up-cycles infinitely. The central bank high priests have determined free markets are better replaced by command economies and further the priests’ purport they know appropriate levels of demand and supply…and absent the achievement of these levels, they will enforce their will even if the Fed’s programs are the likely cause that retards the Fed’s from achieving their stated goals!
