Yellen may be yelling, but the market isn’t really listening. After her second day of Congressional testimony, we were treated to a precious metals sell-off on Comex as the prospect of interest rate increases and a rising dollar continue to rattle the precious metals sector. Demonstrating the power of the current bull move, both gold and silver have reversed and are now making their highs for the Comex session.

Jannet Yellen’s testimony before Congress offers an opportunity for sending traders running for cover, as central bankers and government interests work to manage the mess they have created in hyper-managed financial markets and a Western banking system bloated by decades of mainlining liquidity heroin in a boom-bust financial markets driven leverage cycle.  To think that the creation of the Fed was partially justified on the notion that it would engender stability in financial markets and the banking system!

petrodollar

In December, Grant Williams, author of “Things That Make You Go Hmm…” offered the most comprehensive analysis yet of the rise and inevitable fall of the petrodollar (and implicitly US hegemony). In the following presentation, from Mines & Money Conference in London in December 2016, Williams focuses on gold’s performance in 2016, the reaction to Donald Trump’s election and joins a series of dots that may lead to the end of the petrodollar system and a new place for gold in the global monetary system.

Let’s examine the economic agenda of Trump team, called by Assistant to the President and Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, “national economics.” The key targets so far are China and Germany, two nations with the largest trade surplus with the United States. A closer look, however, suggests Washington is preparing to launch what James Rickards, sometimes advisor on capital markets to the US intelligence community, refers to as “currency wars.” Aside from the obvious China target, the second and perhaps more important target is to destroy the Euro and its European Monetary System. Here Germany is at the heart, one reason, perhaps, why Chancellor Merkel seems to have severe gas pains whenever the name Trump is uttered.

Dave Kranzler documents the mechanics of today’s attack on gold, which involved 11.1 tonnes Of paper gold dumped in sixty seconds and was executed in the Comex market and timed perfectly to help paint the tape with the London P.M. Fix, as I discussed (click here) – Eric Dubin

I love days like today when both gold and the dollar are green. Historically, some of the best moves in gold occur as gold and the dollar move up together for short period of time. Today, of course, is just one day. And there’s no question that the Trump Government will need a significantly lower dollar in order to stimulate U.S. industry, assuming the latter is at all possible anymore.
