The current gold price correction is exactly what “the golden doctor has ordered”, as the gold price meanders calmly down towards key support that begins near $1225. In about a month, I expect the gold price to begin rising again, as buyers there return to the market with size that is large enough to send shock […] The post Current Gold Price Correction “Exactly What the Golden Doctor Ordered” – Stewart Thomson appeared first on Silver Doctors.

Submitted by Claudio Gras via Acting-Man.com, Will the Swiss Guarantee CHF 75,000 for Every Family? In early June the Swiss will be called upon to make a historic decision. Switzerland is the first country worldwide to put the idea of an Unconditional Basic Income (of $2,500 per month for every man, woman, and child for doing absolutely nothing) to a vote and the outcome of this referendum will set a strong precedent and establish a landmark in the evolution of this debate.   The Swiss

This past weekend in Chicago saw another five killed and 40 wounded in shootings, slightly down from Mother's day weekend when eight people were killed and 42 wounded. The two weekends are indicative of what's taking place in the homicide riddled city, in which the number of people shot so far this year is running an astonishing 50% above this time last year - what's worse, summer is not even here yet, which is traditionally the city's most violent period. Recall that 2016

Following Trump's bombardment of Bill and Hillary Clinton over the past 24 hours, first with a video clip featuring Bill rape accusers Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, and shortly thereafter by digging up the most sensitive skeleton in the Clintons' closet, that of Vince Foster, whose death Trump said he found "very fishy", we wondered briefly if and how Hillary would respond. We got our answer moments ago when the response came, only not from Hillary, but from one of her favorite TV

Once upon a time, markets trembled when Greek bailout implementation headlines were announced, which is what just happened if slightly ahead of our forecast schedule... Kazimir Says Eurogroup Meeting Won’t Be an Easy One: translation - Greece will agree to everything some time around 4am — zerohedge (@zerohedge) May 24, 2016 ... and this time nobody cares. Well maybe the Greeks do, but by now even they realize that most of the "money" they receive will be used to repay creditors and

The perennial FOIA Reform Masquerade Ball is again under way, with legislators attempting to dodge blustery requests to "cut in" by administration officials and similarly-motivated federal agencies. The dance usually ends with Congressional committee chairmen yanking needles from records and booting everyone out of the dancehall. Meanwhile, limited headway is being made in another branch of the government, far from the muffled protests of overwhelming majorities who have been shouted down by

If anyone is still confused about the not so subtle dynamics between markets and monetary policy in China, or the country's bipolar, and ever more frequent boom and bust cycles, you won't be after seeing this chart from Socgen. If still unclear, here is SocGen's explanation: Our economists expect China’s structural deceleration to continue over the coming years and it should thus remain a major source of uncertainty for commodity prices and equity markets alike. The recent recovery in

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts, As readers know, I have seen some optimism in voters support for Trump and Sanders as neither are members of the corrupt Republican and Democratic political establishments. Members of both political establishments enrich themselves by betraying the American people and serving only the interest of the One Percent. The American people are being driven into the ground purely for the sake of more mega-billions for a handful of super-rich people. Neither political

Last week, Twitter engaged in some dubious behavior on behalf of a few super-secret someones who'd rather the press didn't discuss their sexual activity. Twitter was apparently firing off "letters of warning" to users who had dared break an injunction issued by the UK Supreme Court forbidding anyone in the media from discussing a threesome involving a prominent British celebrity. There was very little legal force behind the "warning letters" (despite threats from local authorities) and

As we've been covering here at Techdirt, French regulators have been pushing Google to censor the global internet whenever it receives "right to be forgotten" requests. If you don't recall, two years ago, there was a dangerous ruling in the EU that effectively said that people could demand Google remove certain links from showing up when people searched on their names. This "right to be forgotten" is now being abused by a ton of people trying to hide true information they just don't like being

We've noted how the FCC's latest net neutrality rules do a lot of things right, but they failed to seriously address zero rating or broadband usage caps, opening the door to ISPs violently abusing net neutrality -- just as long as they're relatively clever about it. And plenty of companies have been walking right through that open door. Both Verizon and Comcast for example now exempt their own streaming services from these caps, giving them an unfair leg up in the marketplace. AT&T

Yet another court has found that the warrant used by the FBI in the Playpen child porn investigation is invalid, rendering its NIT-assisted "search" unconstitutional. As USA Today's Brad Heath points out, this is at least the sixth court to find that Rule 41's jurisdictional limitations do not permit warrants issued in Virginia to support searches performed all over the nation. While the court agrees that the warrant is invalid, it places the blame at the feet of the magistrate judge who

In Russia, we've talked about how Vladimir Putin employs a massive army of Internet trolls to ridicule and shout down political opponents and critics. In China, the government's tactics are notably different. According to a new study out of Harvard (pdf), the Chinese government posts about 488 million fake social media comments -- or roughly one day of Twitter's total global volume -- each year. In China, these propagandists have historically been dubbed the "50 Cent Party," because it was

Re-usable spacecraft sound like a good idea -- if they actually saved any costs and refurbishing them was economical. There are only a few examples of re-usable space vehicles so far, and NASA retired its space shuttle program in 2011, narrowing the field a bit. SpaceX seems to be getting closer to demonstrating a re-usable rocket system, but it still needs to re-launch one of its rockets (and it currently only has one rocket for such an attempt). India has an incredibly frugal space program

"Thus, the observed decline in originations could be a result of potential applicants being either too cautious or discouraged from applying, more so than tight underwriting as the culprit in lower mortgage activity." She suggests that this caution results in "self-sidelining" that makes it appear that credit is tightening.  This means that the policy solutions are quite different than if the cause was credit tightening and that more consumer education could be more successful in raising originations levels than introducing new lending products with lower credit standards.

There are a number of reasons why adopting the USD is a natural choice for any Venezuelan government that is not bent on self-destruction.Let's start our analysis of Venezuela's economic plight with two exhibits: Exhibit A is a chart of the market (free) exchange rate of the Venezuelan Bolivar and the U.S. dollar (USD), and Exhibit B is a chart of the USD.Back in 2003, when the writing was already on the wall, one USD bought 1.6 Bolivars. Today, it takes over 1,000 Bolivars to buy one U.S. dollar. Though the official rate is 10 Bolivars to one USD for subsidized goods and 416 to the USD for everything else, the street exchange rate is 1,050 Bolivars to the dollar.(The official exchange rate has multiple levels, creating multiple layers of confusion and opportunities
