  • What Is Really Driving Gold?

    NOTE: We are excited to release our first column under our new name. Loyal readers of Zerohedge have read many of our insights under Sprout Money [http://www.zerohedge.com/blogs/sprout-money]. As of this week we will continue to bring the best of ourselves under Secular Investor [https://SecularInvestor.com].

    If anything, gold bulls are continuously looking to confirm their bullish outlook. Most precious metals websites are filled with stories, news and developments from the gold market, accompanied by the implication that they will drive the gold price up. Examples of this include gold coin sales, Shanghai gold withdrawals, central bank buying volumes, evidence of market manipulation, money printing volumes, velocity of money, etc.

    The ongoing narrative is that there is a positive correlation between monetary stimulus and the price of gold. However, as you probably know by now, precious metals collapsed during the Fed's QE to infinity program. The long-term gold chart (first chart below) shows that gold stabilized when the Fed started tapering and around the end of QE, which is very counterintuitive to say the least. That is not to say there is no correlation, but there is definitely not a direct correlation.

    This begs the question: what drives gold and the whole precious metals complex?

    Before answering that question, readers should understand gold's dual role. Fundamentally, it provides protection during times of monetary crisis. That is why a secular investor needs physical gold in its portfolio, especially as the current government debt bubble and global currency crisis unfold. However, this type of protection is only useful in exceptional times.

    Next to that, gold is an investment asset. We are aware that the average gold bug does not agree with this, but let's face it, most of the time we do not find ourselves in extreme circumstances. Gold follows the dynamics of market cycles as well: it goes up until it is (severely) overbought, it goes down until it is (severely) oversold, it consolidates (for a long time), and starts all over again. Admittedly, this is a very simplistic view, but that is essentially what a normal cycle looks like.

    What we, as humans, tend to do is associate 'events' with market developments, because we need an 'explanation' for everything. Similarly, when trends change, we want to be able to explain why that is happening, and associate it with some sort of 'event'. That is human nature. This has a drawback, however, as it prevents investors from looking at reality. Think about this for a second and try to identify the last time it happened with yourself.

    One of the real drivers of investment assets, however, is opportunity and opportunity cost. What does that mean? It means that people prefer assets that are likely to have better yield. Alternatively, if an asset climbs too high and/or too long, the opportunity cost becomes high.

    This is true today more than ever before and there is a reason why we are emphasizing this. The point is that all trading decisions nowadays are computer based. More than ever before, small and large investors are using chart and market analyses to make decisions.

    On top of that, algorithmic trading is becoming more prevalent. We, just like everyone who is in some way disadvantaged by algo based trading, are no fans of this practice. But let's face it, algorithms have the same driver as the humans that programmed them: they search the markets in search for maximum yield.

    Electronic trading is a factor that should not be underestimated. It is driving markets more than ever before, and the gold market is no exception to that. That is not to say we like it; it is simply the way things are done nowadays.

    To make that point, we have added several “events” to the long term gold chart. Note how gold was rising during QE1 and QE2. When the Fed went 'all-in' with its QE to infinity program, gold started to collapse. Clearly, there is no one-to-one correlation between the gold price and 'the creation of money', which was widely assumed up to that point.

    gold_monthly_chart_1999_March_2015

    Gold's uptrend in 2011 had lost so much momentum that alternatives started to look much more interesting. As a consequence, gold's strong trend started turning and it eventually reversed; just because other alternatives had higher yield expectations.

    Gold's fundamental driver: inflation (expectation)

    We went one step further and analyzed all market conditions when the big rally in precious metals started in the summer of 2010. The only observation that stood out was the record volume of short positions held by commercial traders in the COMEX gold futures market (not in silver though). Because of that, the short squeeze that followed was phenomenally powerful. COMEX helped fuel the rally, but it is doubtful whether it was the 'driver'.

    The clearest driver, in our view, has been inflation expectation. The chart below makes that point. The red line, which represents TIPS (inflation-protected US Treasury bonds), an instrument that reflects real yields for maturities ranging from 5 to 30 years, moves almost perfectly in sync with gold. Similarly, we know meanwhile that disinflation (a slowing level of inflation, not deflation though) is gold's biggest enemy. That is confirmed by the stabilization of TIPS since mid-2013, which has been preventing gold from rising as the chart shows.

    Another thing that stands out on the chart below is that gold does not correlate with interest rates (the grey line). There is a strong narrative currently around interest rate hikes and lower gold prices. The problem with that is the underlying assumption that all other conditions apart from interest rates remain the same, in particular the rate of (dis)inflation. For instance, if interest rates go up in an inflationary environment, we should see gold go up. Remember, it is the interest rate in the context of inflation expectations that drives gold.

    TNX_GOLD_TIP_1999_March2015

    We can hear you thinking, dear reader, that we are not taking manipulation into account. Manipulation works in both directions, however. When gold was going through one of the strongest and longest bull markets in history, there was also market manipulation. Just like it pushed gold prices higher back then, it has been reinforcing the downtrend since its peak. Consequently, as precious metals have been manipulated lower, there will be a point where the opportunity becomes so attractive that investors will increase their exposure to gold related investments again and we could be very close to that point.

    The other argument that one could come up with is that we are not taking physical gold's supply and demand into account. The fact is these are not price drivers. Why? Demand for gold is truly different than demand for other commodities because the supply of gold is fixed (it only increases by approximately 2% per year). Consequently, higher gold demand means that gold is merely changing hands, without necessarily pushing prices higher.

    Gold's investment driver: opportunity (cost)

    At its all-time high in 2011, gold was severely overbought. There was simply more potential for yield in stocks. The long-term S&P 500 chart (see below) makes that point. The notes indicate that the rise of the stock market is not linked to one type of event, although it is commonly accepted that the creation of money has been fueling it.

    Even more interesting, in 2012, when QE to infinity was launched, the chart setup for US stocks looked promising. There were several sell offs in the years before which prevented the overheating of momentum, as indicated by the two green circles. Gold, on the other hand, showed a failed attempt to push through its peak.

    s&p500_monthly_chart_1999_March_2015

    However, as time passes and conditions change the opportunity cost to not hold gold-related assets is subject to change as well, and to such an extent that it is turning into an exciting opportunity. Maybe the gold market will attract sufficient interest in one or two years, or in a couple of weeks, we simply do not know in advance. But the key point is the opportunity, and contrarian secular investors have a strategic plan which they are slowly but surely executing as the new trend unfolds.

    When gold's trend changes, everyone will be ready with a 'reason' or an 'explanation' for the new uptrend. A new narrative will be created. Mark our words. Most investors, however, will enter very late in the new cycle because they are still blinded by the former narrative, the one which says that gold will not go up because of reasons x, y, and z.

    Another golden opportunity in the making?

    Going forward, what does all this mean for secular investors? We will answer that question based on the chart below as well as the long-term gold and S&P 500 charts above.

    First, the S&P chart above looks tired. Momentum is fading, which does not bode well for the short and mid term. Is this the end of the stock bull market? Probably not, but hard to say. Assume a scenario in which stocks would correct and test the breakout point; that would point to a strong secular bull market going forward in US stocks. On the other hand, a break below 1,600 points would be ultra bearish.

    Second, gold is building a solid base and there is a technical buying signal, evidenced by the green circle on its long-term chart (first chart above). If the consolidation continues, and gold doest not break below $1,000/oz, the opportunity cost for not holding gold related investments would simply become too high.

    Consequently, if inflation picked up in an environment where the opportunity cost of not holding gold rises, gold would most likely continue its secular bull trend in a big way. Do you recognize the two drivers we discussed before?

    Likewise, as long as the ongoing disinflationary trend continues, gold rallies will be capped.

    Other asset classes, in particular commodities and the dollar, are somewhat mixed. On the one hand, commodities have fully retraced their multi-year rally and the chart does not look good. At the same time it seems that the downside is becoming limited. The dollar has had a strong rally, but keeping this up at the same pace is doubtful because of the exceptional strength of its recent rally, as we explained last month.

    crb_tnx_dollar_s&p_2000_2015

    So could we conclude that gold has an attractive outlook and that opportunity cost is rising? Being secular investors, we think so, but we would like to see more evidence.

    What we would like to see, ideally, is an indication of rising inflation, which could come in the form of an uptake in economic activity; that would stop the ongoing disinflationary trend. However, there is another form of inflation. If interest rates rise, bond prices would fall. As the bond market is huge compared to other markets, it means that a significant part of those dollars and/or euros will flow to other assets. Because of that, the price sof stocks and commodities, including gold, should inflate.

    And there you have our contrarian call. We at SecularInvestor.com are sensing that higher interest rates could become the next trigger to push precious metals higher in the years ahead.

    Obviously this is a statement that goes against the ongoing narrative and consequently it is not in the minds of most investors. Why? Because almost everyone believes that gold can only go lower, that interest rates can only go lower, and that there is a one-to-one correlation between interest rates and gold. This has been fueled day after day by mainstream media, as usual.

  • More Hillary Cronyism Revealed: Cisco Used Clinton Foundation To Cover-up Human Rights Abuse In China

    Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

    Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 12.09.13 PM

    In her 2014 memoir “Hard Choices,” Clinton reiterated her support for human-rights advocates in China. She specifically criticized the Great Firewall, writing that after she made comments about the right to dissent in China in 2011, “censors went right to work erasing mentions of my message from the Internet.”

     

    But the issue of Chinese repression — and Cisco’s role — was already known by then. In 2009, weeks after Clinton’s State Department had named Cisco a finalist for the secretary of state’s Awards for Corporate Excellence (ACE), a report from the Electronic Freedom Foundation noted “Cisco’s deep involvement” in building the Chinese government’s censorship system. The report pointed out that “Cisco engineers gave a presentation acknowledging the repressive uses for their technology.”

     

    Daniel Wade, an attorney who represented Chinese dissidents in a lawsuit against Cisco, told IBTimes that “Cisco knew full well that its products were going to be used to suppress and facilitate the torture of democracy activists.”

     

    “Crony capitalism has defined Clinton’s career, from her tenure on the board of Walmart, to the Wall Street execs whom she surrounded herself with at the State Department, to her allegiance to Cisco, even as it violated principles on which she staked her tenure,” said David Segal, executive director of the Internet freedom advocacy group Demand Progress.

     

    - From the International Business Times article: Hillary Clinton, Cisco And China: Company Funded Foundation, Was Lauded By Clinton Despite Role In Repression

    As many suspected, it turns out that the Clinton Foundation is indeed a tepid cesspool of crony corporate and government donations used to buy influence at the highest levels of Washington D.C. This shouldn’t surprise anyone paying attention, but it will hopefully wake up some Democrats still buying into the deep rooted myth of Hillary Clinton.

    David Sirota and his colleagues at International Business Times have been relentless in uncovering several extremely important examples of her pathological cronyism. I highlighted his very important work just last week in the post, This is How Hillary Does Business – An Oil Company, Human Rights Abuses in Colombia and the Clinton Foundation. Here’s an excerpt:

    The details of these financial dealings remain murky, but this much is clear: After millions of dollars were pledged by the oil company to the Clinton Foundation — supplemented by millions more from Giustra himself — Secretary Clinton abruptly changed her position on the controversial U.S.-Colombia trade pact. Having opposed the deal as a bad one for labor rights back when she was a presidential candidate in 2008, she now promoted it, calling it “strongly in the interests of both Colombia and the United States.” The change of heart by Clinton and other Democratic leaders enabled congressional passage of a Colombia trade deal that experts say delivered big benefits to foreign investors like Giustra.

     

    The details of her family’s entanglements in Colombia echo talk that the Clintons have blurred the lines between their private business and philanthropic interests and those of the nation. And Hillary Clinton’s connections to Pacific Rubiales and Giustra intensify recent questions about whether big donations influenced her decisions as secretary of state.

    As it turns out, this was just an appetizer. Despite claiming to be a strong advocate for human rights in China, it turns out she is an even stronger advocate for corporate donations. From the International Business Times:

    Cisco Systems had a public relations problem: Having invested $16 billion in the Chinese market, the technology giant was suddenly facing congressional scrutiny over its alleged complicity in building the so-called Great Firewall that helps China’s authoritarian regime censor information and surveil its citizens.

     

    The San Jose, California, company endured a high-profile Senate hearing about its Chinese operations in 2008 and reaffirmed its “continued commitment to China.” But the issue wouldn’t die. A group of investors stormed the company’s annual meeting in November 2009, pressing a shareholder resolution that would force the company to prevent the Chinese government from using Cisco technology to engage in what critics said was widespread human-rights abuse.

     

    That’s when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tossed the company a lifeline. Weeks after Cisco executives killed the shareholder initiative, Cisco was honored as a finalist for the State Department’s award for “outstanding corporate citizenship, innovation and democratic principles.” The next year, the company won the award. While the honors were for the company’s work in the Middle East, they gave Cisco a well-timed opportunity to change the subject and present itself as a champion of human rights.

     

    What Clinton did not say at the State Department award ceremonies was that Cisco had been pumping money into her family’s foundation. Though the foundation will not release an exact timeline of the contributions, records reviewed by International Business Times show that Cisco had by December 2008 donated from $500,000 to $1 million to the foundation. The company had hired lobbying firms run by former Clinton aides. After the money flowed into the foundation, Clinton’s State Department not only lauded Cisco’s human rights record, it also delivered millions of dollars worth of new government contracts to the company.

     

    Internet freedom advocates say Clinton’s moves helped Cisco whitewash its image and also raise questions about the sincerity of her often-stated commitment to human rights.

     

    “Crony capitalism has defined Clinton’s career, from her tenure on the board of Walmart, to the Wall Street execs whom she surrounded herself with at the State Department, to her allegiance to Cisco, even as it violated principles on which she staked her tenure,” said David Segal, executive director of the Internet freedom advocacy group Demand Progress.

     

    But the issue of Chinese repression — and Cisco’s role — was already known by then. In 2009, weeks after Clinton’s State Department had named Cisco a finalist for the secretary of state’s Awards for Corporate Excellence (ACE), a report from the Electronic Freedom Foundation noted “Cisco’s deep involvement” in building the Chinese government’s censorship system. The report pointed out that “Cisco engineers gave a presentation acknowledging the repressive uses for their technology.”

     

    In 2010, the Clinton Foundation gave Cisco CEO John Chambers a high-profile speaking role at its “Turning Ideas Into Action” annual meeting. Cisco also won an ACE that year — just before the Human Rights Law Foundation filed a lawsuit against Cisco outlining what the foundation’s executive director, Terri Marsh, said was the “key role Cisco played in the design, construction, and maintenance of China’s Internet surveillance system.”

     

    In an interview with IBTimes, Marsh said that “Cisco’s conduct has enabled an unprecedented and widespread crackdown on religious minorities, Tibetans, and democracy activists in China.” Cisco’s work in China, she said, “runs contrary to Secretary Clinton’s stated commitment to ‘a single Internet where all of humanity has equal access to knowledge and ideas.’”

     

    She added: “We are disappointed that the State Department has chosen to reward rather than condemn such a company, and believe that the United States should instead be sending a clear message to American technology corporations that complicity in global human rights abuses is not acceptable.”

     

    Daniel Wade, an attorney who represented Chinese dissidents in a lawsuit against Cisco, told IBTimes that “Cisco knew full well that its products were going to be used to suppress and facilitate the torture of democracy activists.”

     

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation, which today works with Cisco on an Internet encryption project, said Cisco technology enabled violent repression by the Chinese government.

     

    “We have ample evidence to indicate that the technology Cisco created was instrumental in the tracking down of religious minorities, detaining them, and murdering them,” said Rainey Reitman, the EFF’s activism director. “Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a full public accounting.”

    There’s shameless, and then there’s Hillary Clinton. She is in a league all by herself.

  • What Bernanke's New Employer Had To Say About Him Just 2 Years Ago

    Having previously explained the 175,846,629,768 reasons why former Fed Chair Ben Bernanke would join Citadel - the most-levered hedge fund in the world and alleged conduit of fed put protection; we thought it intriguing to note what billionaire Citadel Ken Griffin had to say about Bernanke and his policies just 2 years ago...

    The revolving door between Wall Street and Washington doesn’t often involve big banks like Citigroup or Goldman Sachs anymore. Instead, as Forbes' Nathan Vardi reports, hedge fund and private equity firms have become the destination of choice. They are richer and guys like Bernanke feel they are less controversial than the big banks.

    But, ironically, Griffin has been publicly critical of some of the more prominent Federal Reserve policies that were implemented on Bernanke’s watch. He particularly took some shots at those policies in 2013, as Bernanke was coming close to finishing his run at the Fed.

    In a statement on Thursday,

    Griffin said that Bernanke “has extraordinary knowledge of the global economy and his insights on monetary policy and the capital markets will be extremely valuable to our team and to our investors.”

    But two years ago - he was not so sure...

    Here are some of Griffin’s criticisms of Federal Reserve policy during the Bernanke years.

     

    To The Economic Club of Chicago, May 2013:

     

    “I think QE3 is a terrible idea because we are now reaching the point where the Fed is becoming captive to our political institutions. You see with the Fed owning several trillion dollars of U.S. Treasuries it’s easy to imagine that at the next confirmation hearing the questions posed by politicians will be of the nature, will you continue to help subsidize the cost of the U.S. federal government’s borrowings even at the ensuing risk of potentially creating uncontrollable inflation? That last part won’t be asked but that will be the risk. And I think there will be real pressure on picking people to the Federal Reserve board who will appease our politicians and continue to try to drive interest rates to an artificially low level, very worried about that, very worried about that.”

     

    To The Milken Institute Conference, April 2013:

     

    “The Federal Reserve is really trying to counteract a number of the very poor policies that are coming from our legislative and executive branches and it’s damn near impossible to overcome the headwinds created by Obamacare, an inability to reform tax policy, inability to thoughtfully create jobs in our country and the Fed’s policies are doing two things that I am very gravely concerned about. Number one is we have all learned over the years that if you reduce the cost of capital you increase your use of fixed assets and you take out jobs. Corporate America seeing an ever increasing cost for its employee base and extraordinary low interest rates is taking every step they can possibly take to reduce employment, to build factories abroad and domestically to substitute technology and automated processes for people. So one of the very sad negative characteristics of the Fed’s policies is it’s leading to job destruction.”

    *  *  *
    This 'flip-flopping' though, is understandable - the only 'edge' any fund has anymore is an inside line on monetary policy headlines and actions and the fee generation from running the Fed's trades likely came with some quid pro quo...








  • Did Presidential Candidate, Marco Rubio, Make A Deal With The Devil?

    Submitted by Thad Beversdorf via FirstRebuttal.com,

    Screen Shot 2015-04-16 at 12.32.35 PM

    Is mainstream media really going to ignore that Marco Rubio’s campaign is named after the late 1990′s think tank called a ‘Project for a New American Century’ (PNAC), founded by Head Neocon – Bill Kristol?  And this is no coincidence.  Guess who’s doing the Sunday talk show circuit campaigning for a Rubio presidency?  You know it…

     

    Now as a reminder the PNAC is a lobby group formed by a host of neocons at the end of the 1990′s with an objective of war in the Middle East.  See if you recognize a few of the notable names of people that signed the PNAC’s founding statement of principles; Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Ron Perle and Paul Wolfowitz.  You’ll note these guys became Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Defense Policy Board and Deputy Secretary of Defense, respectively, under president Bush about six months before 9/11.

    Have a look at the following recommendations from the Project for a New American Century’s apex report sent to President Clinton in September of 2000.  One year exactly before the 9/11 tragedy that became the sales pitch for an unendable war on terror similar to Reagan’s war on drugs some 35 years ago, both still going strong with no signs of slowing. The report titled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” recommends that while the world was in the longest sustained period of global peace (acknowledged in the report) that America should establish four key objectives as it headed into the new century.  Pay particular attention to the second ‘core mission’ in the following excerpt from the report.

    Screen Shot 2015-01-08 at 2.49.08 PM

    Funny thing about these four core missions is that each and everyone of them came to fruition.  Not surprising given the authors became the senior military policy makers about 6 months after the recommendations were sent to outgoing President Clinton.  Now there is more than meets the eye to all of this and I won’t get into the details here but for those interested, if you want to understand the very ugly truth about how and why America is in the midst of a seemingly endless war on ‘terror’ in the Middle East have a read of an article I wrote some time ago called “The Most Essential Lessons of History that No One Wants to Admit“.

    You will realize that our boy Bill Kristol is just the face of an immense amount of money and political persuasion.  Money talks and our government is for sale.  Just ask Marco Rubio what the going rate for naming rights is on a presidential campaign these days.  The power and money that Kristol represents do not provide their support without expectations.  These thugs absolutely want their return on capital.  The returns come by way of a currency only a President carries.

    Anyone not interested in WWIII should be very wary of a Rubio presidency.  Marco Rubio’s financial backing will absolutely guarantee a war with Russia and a war with Russia means a war with China for it must protect its future energy supplies.  Bill Kristol and his band of armchair warriors have been lobbying for a war with Russia since at least as far back as 2004 as evidenced in the following letter to group of European heads of state.

    Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 5.02.58 PM

     

    The letter really depicts the kind of rhetoric used by these neocons.  You can see from the list of names supporting this effort at the end of the full letter, these neocons are the very same neocons recommending the US start a series of arbitrary wars in the name of peace via the Project for a New American Century, as noted above.  Now they lack any substantive facts in their letter and so use implications and conjecture about Russia being a dictatorship, which is no more true, and probably less, than it is for the US meaning we are throwing stones in glass houses.  President Bush and Obama remember have signed several executive orders, such as the AUMF and NDAA that negate an American citizen’s constitutional rights.

    The best evidence that indeed Americans’ constitutional rights to things like Habeas Corpus are negated under the combined executive orders of AUMF and NDAA is depicted in the United States Court of Appeals Second Circuit District Judge, Lewis Kaplan’s ruling statement.  He explains their plurality decision was a compromise that gives authority to suspend a citizen’s constitutional rights but only until the respective ‘war’, is over.  However this is not a compromise at all.  When the ‘war’ is a war on terror it is not only indefinite but infinite for when would we ever suggest we are no longer fighting against terrorism.  So while the District court’s ruling suggests that it limits the negation of a citizen’s constitutional rights, for all intents and purposes it limits the negation to a duration of forever, which is by definition not a limitation.

    But as I so often do I digress.  My point is that Bill Kristol and his armchair warriors have been lobbying for a war with Russia in the very same way they lobbied for “multiple simultaneous major theater wars”, which they got in the Middle East.  One can only conclude then that given a Rubio presidency, war with Russia is all but guaranteed.

    One of Kristol’s armchair warriors is the one and only Victoria Nuland, wife of a Kagan boy, he himself a general in the armchair army.  Note that Nuland was the conductor of the coup d’etat in Ukraine as evidenced in a recording of a conversation between her and a fellow US diplomat discussing who they were going to place as head of state in Ukraine.  Now the recording begs two questions.  What gives US diplomats the right to decide the head of state for a foreign ‘democratic’ nation?  And perhaps more interesting, how did Nuland know that there would be an opening for head of state in Ukraine given the recorded conversation took place prior to the coup d’etat and so prior to any rational notion that a replacement would be needed?  Unless of course Nuland was aware that there would soon be an opening for the role of President of Ukraine.

    Anyone that still believes the US is not the most corrupt government in the world is simply in denial.  All the facts are there and to discount them is to deny them.  I’m going to leave you with perhaps the best interview I’ve ever seen with Bill Kristol by a character we can all appreciate.  Enjoy it but don’t miss the message.  Kristol is nothing but a muppet, however, the men behind Kristol are extremely dangerous and men who work in political shadows to get what they want by purchasing and threatening the careers of American legislators.  These men who work in the shadows are just the current members of the same group that forced Woodrow Wilson to approve the Central Banking Act against his better judgment in 1913 and 30 years later forced Harry Truman to support taking land from the Palestinians and calling it Israel against his better judgement.  Ample evidence shows that both took those personally regretful actions under extreme political duress by a group we now call the neocons.

    Rubio has essentially made a deal with the devil.  He has accepted the help of perhaps the most powerful political force in Washington but it will cost him a Presidential executive order to initiate military aggression against Russia.  If we allow this to play out the blood of so many more young Americans and other young men and women around the world will be on the hands of we the people for again failing to uphold our duties as Americans, a self governed people, rather than as subservient fools.
