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.

  • Investing Legend Turns Apocalyptic, Expects Stocks To Crater 50% In Largest Wealth Destruction In US History - Jan 20, 2022
    Investing Legend Turns Apocalyptic, Expects Stocks To Crater 50% In Largest Wealth Destruction In US History It was several years ago when Jeremy Grantham quietly turned from stock bull to vocal permabear, and while his market notes turned breathlessly alarmist (if only to those who were long his multi-billion fund GMO), such as this from June 2020 "Stock-market legend who called 3 financial bubbles says this one is the ‘Real McCoy,’ this is ‘crazy stuff’", it wasn't until early 2021 that Grantham's warnings of an imminent crash became especially shrill... and spect [...]
  • Taylor Rule In Dust-Up With Rates Shows Path Ahead - Jan 20, 2022
    Taylor Rule In Dust-Up With Rates Shows Path Ahead By Ven Ram, cross-asset strategist for Bloomberg Markets Live Policy rates in the U.K., U.S., Canada and the euro zone trail forecasts bootstrapped from the Taylor Rule by the most, suggesting that terminal rates in the most advanced economies may be underestimating the task ahead for policy makers. Policy rates in those economies lag the implied policy rate by 3 percentage points or more, while the gap is narrower in New Zealand and other nations where central banks are trying to kindle inflation.   Traders are pricing terminal rates from ab [...]
  • Fed Releases Much-Anticipated Report On Digital Dollar - Jan 20, 2022
    Fed Releases Much-Anticipated Report On Digital Dollar “The introduction of a CBDC would represent a highly significant innovation in American money,” says The Fed in its much-anticipated report on the possible issuance of a U.S. digital currency. The 35-page discussion paper on a government-backed coin makes no firm conclusions on whether (making it clear it did not “favour any policy outcome” at this point) it should be issuing a CBDC, but instead solicits feedback (as Powell had previously explained would be its purpose). Powell has previously said any CBDC should serve “as a comp [...]
  • The Federal Reserve Is A Money-Making Enterprise - Jan 20, 2022
    The Federal Reserve Is A Money-Making Enterprise Via SchiffGold.com, The Federal Reserve is a money-making enterprise. This probably shouldn’t come as any surprise, given that the central bank can create money out of thin air and buy yielding assets. Still, the Fed rakes in a staggering amount of money. The central bank recently released its unaudited preliminary financial statement for 2021. The Fed’s total net income for 2021 came in at $107.8 billion. How does that compare to a legitimate business? Apple booked a pretax income of $109 billion in its fiscal year 2021. So, the Fed rakes [...]

  • What Will It Take To Sink The Housing Market? - Jan 20, 2022
    What Will It Take To Sink The Housing Market? Update (1330ET): Following this morning's print showing that 2021 saw the best annual existing home sales since 2006, MishTalk's Mike Shedlock asks the question everyone should be asking as prices hit record-er and record-er prices - what will it take to sink the housing market? Sales are hot thanks to cheap money from the Fed, rising rent prices, speculation, fear of missing out, three rounds of fiscal stimulus, and a booming stock market.  It's difficult to put a percentage on each of those factors but they all tie together.  If [...]
  • Biden Walks Back Ukraine Statements: Any Russian Offensive Marks An "Invasion" - Jan 20, 2022
    Biden Walks Back Ukraine Statements: Any Russian Offensive Marks An "Invasion" During President Biden's 2-hour solo press event, he was asked repeatedly about the administration's posture on Ukraine and the growing fears of a Russian invasion threat. To the disappointment and anger of US hawks as well as Ukrainian government officials themselves, he made a distinction between a "minor incursion" and an all-out "invasion" - suggesting that only in the latter scenario might there be a robust response from the US. CNN soon after the Q&A session focused [...]
