Market Brief: A multi-year bull market

09/17/17 The spot gold price trended lower through the week to a low on Thursday morning of 1318 and a close Friday of 1320, down $27. Silver held up relatively well until selling off late in the week to close at 17.59, down 42 cents. The gold-silver ratio was unchanged at 75.0. Miners fell sharply on Monday and then mostly resisted further selling to close down 5% (HUI).

The Fed announcement Wednesday could mark the low of the current consolidation or trigger more selling. In any event, we expect spot gold to work its way to the 1375-1400 area over the next few weeks. We expect miners to outperform.

The Left Decries our Post-Truth Society While Pushing the Ideas that Fuel It

moral relativism vs objective truth

“Relativism, subjectivism, and materialism are all bankrupt philosophies. Yet these are what drive our culture and politics. When objective truth and values are abandoned, there are no unifying principles of truth or morality that bind together the vast number of disparate individuals and groups that inhabit our nation.

“America’s greatness stems from its commitment to e pluribus unum — out of the many, one. Out of the many states, one nation. Out of the many races, religions, and backgrounds, one people. To achieve that—to bind together all these subjective entities into a functioning and civil whole—we need objective principles to which we are all committed.

“If we truly want to make America great again, if we really want peace and prosperity, we must return to the foundational principles and truths that made our nation great in the first place. If we want unity—e pluribus unum—we have to abandon subjectivism and once again embrace objective truth and morality. If we don’t, America will be transformed into a brave new world where truth is defined by the powerful.” Denise C. McAllister in The Federalist

Lincoln on banksters"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my Country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the Country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed." — Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864

    “Sound economics tells us that central bankers do not pursue the greater good. They debase the currency; slyly redistribute income and wealth; benefit some groups at the expense of others; help the state to expand, to become a deep state at the expense of individual freedom; make people run into ever greater indebtedness. What central bankers really do is cause a planned chaos. Unfortunately, the damages they create — such as, say, inflation, speculation, recession, mass unemployment etc. — are regularly and falsely attributed to the workings of the free market, thereby discouraging and eroding peoples’ confidence in private initiative and free enterprise.” —Dr. Thorsten Polleit, Chief Economist of Degussa
