  • Bitcoins vs. Greenbacks and/or Gold and Silver

    12/11/2013 8:32:59 AM PST · by Errant · 12 replies
    Market Oracle, UK ^ | 12/11 | Gary North
    There are conflicting stories among Bitcoins’ supporters about why a Japanese programmer or team of Japanese programmers, who are known by a pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, developed the original idea for the Bitcoins software. The primary justification for Bitcoins among libertarians is the prediction that Bitcoins will become an alternative currency to all existing central bank currencies. Bitcoins are seen as a first-stage revolt against central bank money. In this essay, I’m going to make a series of arguments. I’m going to tell you in advance what my arguments are. You can then judge whether or not I have been successful...

    Cyprus Triggers Preference For Goods, Gold And Silver Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013April 02, 2013 - 07:10 PM GMT By: Alasdair Macleod Almost certainly prices for goods in Cyprus will rise as a result of its banking crisis, because the imposition of capital controls will restrict imports, leading to supply bottlenecks. In addition residents will no longer be complacent about keeping money on deposit, but seek other alternatives. Large depositors may be trapped, but smaller local depositors will draw them down for cash to stock up on things needed tomorrow while they are available.Cypriots will therefore change their preferences...

    I really want advice from FReepers who have invested in Gold and other precious metals. The Cyprus thing got me nervous. The idea that a country could say "we will immediately do a Wealth Tax" was out of my realm of thinking. But the fact this happened with the OK of the IMF (of which the USA is the largest influence) is what scares me. Now Brussels in on that same road of pure State theft. And let's face it, any country stupid enough to tax people for existing (aka obamacare) will be arrogant enough to levy an overnight "wealth...

    One of the biggest complaints about gold - always a parallel currency to paper, and soon to be serial, once the world shifts to a post-paper currency reality in which faith in infinitely creatable electronic paper money is finally destroyed - is that it would be an impractical medium of exchange, as the traditional denominations are so large one would be unable to trade one ounce (and certainly one bar) for every day needs. This is also one of the main reasons various retail investors prefer silver over gold. All this may be changing courtesy of Swiss refiner Valcambi which...

Developed nations of the west have hundreds of thousands of pages of rules, codes, regulations, laws, decrees, executive orders, etc., many of which are contradictory, archaic, and incomprehensible. Across these ‘free’ nations, the law is selectively enforced, selectively applied, and completely set aside whenever it pleases the state. As such, even the most harmless...

    Metals and other commodities fell Thursday, led by a tumble of more than 5 percent in silver, as discouraging news about the economy kept piling up. Both precious and industrial metals fell. Silver priced for July delivery lost $1.55 to $26.839 per ounce. August gold slid $50.30, more than 3 percent, to $1,565.50 per ounce. Silver and gold often move in synch, but silver tends to fluctuate more because of its lower price.

But not for long: this record price will be promptly followed by a plunge down to $1,100 following liquidations as the latest and greatest recession grips the world, which he believes...

    When considering the purchase of gold and silver it’s important to understand why you’re buying it, because that will influence what you purchase. The most typical reasons people consider buying gold and silver fall into three basic categories. - Business uses: As a hedge against inflation and counter-weight to cash investments such as bonds and money market funds. - As a crisis currency:  So when things finally collapse you have something to trade for supplies.  - As an investment: This would be mainly collectible coins with numismatic value.  To help choose between those options, you have ask yourself whether in...

Here is your answer: "Yesterday’s unanimous agreement by the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) to allow central counterparties to accept gold as collateral, under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), is further recognition of gold’s growing relevance as a high quality liquid asset. This vote reinforces market demand for a greater choice of assets that can be used as collateral to meet margin liabilities." Luckily for Greece, it has 111.5 tons...

Silver dealers in particular clamoured to take advantage of a two-fold hike in the bullion market, the like of which has not been seen for 30 years. Driven by a weaker US dollar and continuing tensions in the Middle East and North Africa, the prices of gold and silver hit new record highs on Monday, April 25 (a bank holiday in the UK) and on the European markets the following day. Gold rose as high as $1518.30 (Ł918.70) an ounce, while silver...
