Gold & Silver News: ZeroHedge Feed

This is a feed of recent posts and news articles from ZeroHedge. ZeroHedge is “Anti-Keynesian” in scope, With an often hilarious snarkiness, ZeroHedge provides a not-so mainstream perspective on Wall Street, finance and the global economic condition through a prolific output of detailed, thoughtful and timely commentary. Articles are posted by the pseudonym Tyler Durden, from the movie “Fight Club.” Discussion is robust and not for the faint of heart.

Interestingly, and this observation isn’t supported by any analysis, just cursory glance type observation, the number of gold and silver articles seem to have declined in late-2014 / early 2015. When they do appear, there are more hostile responses in the comments section, rather than the endless littany of purely positive comments. Given that bullish gold / silver news seemed to dominate ZH a few years back, perhaps the current state can serve as a contrarian indicator that metals will continue to scream higher in 2015.

  • ADP Employment Huge Miss: Just 167K Jobs Added, Below 1.2 Million Expected But June Revised Massively Higher - Aug 5, 2020
    ADP Employment Huge Miss: Just 167K Jobs Added, Below 1.2 Million Expected But June Revised Massively Higher Tyler Durden Wed, 08/05/2020 - 08:29 There was some very bad news offset by modestly good news in today's ADP Private Payrolls report. The bad news is that after June's 2.369MM jump in private payrolls, consensus expected another solid - if somewhat weaker - print, at around 1.2MM jobs added. Alas, the actual number was far worse, with just 167K jobs added in July, barely in the green, and a clear sign that any V-shaped recovery from May and June is now over. The good news is [...]

    Futures Jump, Gold Soars As Dollar Destruction Accelerates Tyler Durden Wed, 08/05/2020 - 08:09 Everyone is piling into everything.

Sure enough, on Wednesday, gold jumped to a new record high pushing further past $2,000... ... as the dollar tumbled on U.S. Treasury yields falling to fresh all time lows, and expectations of more stimulus measures for the pandemic-ravaged global economy [...]

Ya know what? You're a swordboat captain! Is there anything better in the world?” But... first... Back in the days of ancient Rome it was not unusual for corrupt emperors to demand substantial cuts on every business transaction to fund their orgies and other transgressions.
