THE GOLD BULL IS ALIVE AND KICKING

by Egon von Greyerz August 15, 2019

Maecenas was a well known benefactor in Rome for Horace and others. His name has come to mean benefactor, in many languages called a mecenate. The loss of a benefactor can be very serious for anyone on the receiving end of his alimonies. For a century, the world has had the most generous group of […]

GOVERNMENT ACTION WILL PUSH GOLD EVER HIGHER

by Egon von Greyerz August 8, 2019

History is full of mad leaders from the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, the Roman Emperor Caligula to many English and French kings as well as modern examples. But the question is if we have ever had such a mad world as today. Globally, ethical and moral values have vanished and decadence is rampan […]

NEXT 5 YEARS NOT ABOUT WINNING BUT SURVIVING

by Egon von Greyerz August 1, 2019

The messages from the ECB and the Fed couldn’t be clearer. They are seeing major problems in the financial system and in the world economy and they will do whatever it takes to save the system. But they will fail. The autumn of 2019 will see a major shift in sentiment as markets turn from a sec […]

STOCKS NO BID – GOLD NO OFFER

by Egon von Greyerz July 25, 2019

It is not difficult to understand Cassandra’s enormous frustration. She was given the gift of accurately predicting important events and her curse was that no one would believe her. Some of us are certain that we can now see the biggest bubbles in economic history coming to an end with totally dev […]

CONFIDENCE AND EUPHORIA WILL TURN TO FEAR AND DESPAIR

by Egon von Greyerz July 18, 2019

Investors today have Hobson’s Choice. But they still don’t understand the options open to them. Thomas Hobson had a livery stable of 40 horses in Cambridge in the 16th-17th centuries. But customers only had a choice of one horse. They could either take the one nearest the door or none at all. So […]

by Egon von Greyerz July 12, 2019

"A Crazy World! We have the biggest bubble ever in history and it will all end in tears." This is how Egon starts the interview with Lynette. Egon goes on to discuss that we we will soon begin a most spectacular secular bear market in stocks and bonds. Central banks will panic as they fail with the […]

GOLD IS FOR FREEDOM AND BENEFIT

by Egon von Greyerz July 11, 2019

Lemmings have a herd mentality. But following the crowd, can have grave consequences like falling off a cliff and drowning in the ocean. Many investors have the same instinct. They follow the crowd and buy or sell when other people do. This probably won’t end in the same disaster as the lemmings, […]

SWISS BANK LOSES CLIENT’S GOLD

by Egon von Greyerz July 4, 2019

Don’t let your bank hold your gold. They might not find it. A gold investor told us recently that his Swiss bank had moved the client’s gold from the bank’s safe to a private vault in the name of the bank, in Zurich. The client was aware of this move. But then the problems started. The gold w […]

GOLD PRICE SIGNALS NEXT GLOBAL CRISIS

by Egon von Greyerz June 27, 2019

Finally it happened although it took 6 long years to break through The Gold Maginot Line at $1,350!

This resistance was a lot stronger than the original French one in WW II since it took the Germans less than a year to penetrate it in 1940. […]

I JUST WON A $1 MILLION DOLLAR WAGER ON GOLD!

by Egon von Greyerz June 20, 2019

At the beginning of last week, I was challenged with a wager on the gold price. The individual, who called me a “gold pumper”, wanted to bet $1 million on the gold price going below $1,000 before it reached the Maginot Line at $1,350. Since the gold price was $1,325 when I received the challe […]

GOLD MAGINOT LINE BROKEN – TIME TO BUY INSURANCE

by Egon von Greyerz June 14, 2019

The breakout in gold and silver that we have been patiently waiting for is now starting. The long term up move in the precious metals, which have been pausing since 2011, is now resuming. We can with confidence expect all the short term resistance levels to be broken. The first obstacle was the Gol […]

BRITS – GOLD MORE LIKELY TO SAVE YOU THAN ATLAS

by Egon von Greyerz May 30, 2019

Will Atlas save the world? Global debt of $250 trillion can neither be serviced nor ever repaid. More likely, it will continue to grow exponentially until the world financial system collapses under the weight of the debt plus unfunded pension and medical liabilities of at least $250 trillion plus de […]

WITHOUT GOLD THE WEALTHY WILL BE WIPED OUT

by Egon von Greyerz May 24, 2019

The massive explosion of wealth in the world could be a sign of general prosperity but that is certainly very far from the truth. The printed money and credit expansion has only benefited a very small minority. The gap between the rich and the poor is getting ever wider but it will soon shrink drama […]

COMING ECONOMIC COLLAPSE GUARANTEES SOCIALISM

by Egon von Greyerz May 17, 2019

How can a small clique of gold owners holding less than 0.5% of world financial assets be right? They are clearly a minuscule minority of obstinate goldbugs and contrarians who are living in the past. Or do these people see something that the majority of investors don’t? […]

MOVES IN GOLD & SILVER WILL BE 1970S ON STILTS

by Egon von Greyerz May 9, 2019

My long standing target for gold of $10,000 in today’s money and much, much higher in inflationary terms, is now more probable than ever. But I hope it will never be achieved. When gold goes to $10,000, it won’t be under the same circumstances that we saw in the 1970s. Gold then went from $35 in […]

THE GOLD MAGINOT LINE WILL SOON BREAK

by Egon von Greyerz May 2, 2019

Why do 99.9% of investors not own gold? Due to my interest and activity, I clearly meet a higher percentage than the 0.1% who both understand and own gold. But I also meet a lot of people who have been indoctrinated by their investment advisors and the media about gold’s uselessness. Most of these […]

CHINA HOLDS THE GOLD AND WILL MAKE THE RULES

by Egon von Greyerz April 25, 2019

Gold is the ultimate insurance against a bankrupt financial system, a corrupt political system and a rotten monetary system. But official propaganda, combined with people’s greed, mean that virtually nobody understands the necessity of insuring against these risks. Also, investors are convinced th […]

95% STOCK MARKET LOSS AND A CAN TOO BIG TO KICK

by Egon von Greyerz April 18, 2019

Will the average stock portfolio gain 1,900% to make up for the coming 95% fall? This is the unenviable task that investors will be facing in years to come. Six weeks ago I wrote about Alfred, a 74 year old man who during his life made a $14 million fortune in stocks by always being invested in th […]

SILVER SHORTAGES ARE HERE AND GOLD SCARCITY IS COMING

by Egon von Greyerz April 12, 2019

MMT is the socialists’ dream. It officially stands for Modern Monetary Theory but a more appropriate name would be More Money Theory. Because MMT is just a fancy name to justify more money printing, more deficits and more debts. Socialists love MMT, because for a sovereign nation, it justifies con […]
