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.

  • Beijing Slams West For "Interfering" In Moscow's Affairs - Aug 21, 2019
    Russian President Vladimir Putin has seen his popularity decline abruptly over the past year - something  the New York Times won't let its subscribers forget. And Russia's handling of mass unsanctioned protests related to United Russia's flagrant prohibition of opposition parties from participating in next month's Moscow City Council elections has drawn more scrutiny from the West. But once again, Beijing is siding with Moscow over in its handling of the protests, and - as it did recently when it blamed the US for inciting Hong Kong protests - has accused the West [...]
  • 'Celebriphilia' Epidemic Sweeps Across America: Forget Knowledge & Wisdom, Listen To The Stars - Aug 21, 2019
    Authored by Michael McCaffrey, Americans are blessed to have a plethora of benevolent celebrities who are willing to share their infinite knowledge and wisdom with them... After a thorough examination by a team of top-notch doctors, I was recently given some very disturbing news... I was diagnosed with an acute case of stage 4 platonic celebriphilia .

  • Germany Is About To Sells Its First Ever Zero-Coupon Ultra-Long Bond - Aug 21, 2019
    It's not quite a zero coupon perpetual sovereign bond just yet, but it will have to do for now. Having already sold debt which pays zero interest (i.e., 0% coupon), in just a few hours, Germany will sell an ultra-long bond with a 0% coupon for the first time on Wednesday amid a spasm of debt sales over the next two weeks offering negative rates. As Bloomberg points out, this week’s 30-year auction will test the continued demand for haven assets now that the whole of Germany’s yield curve is in negative territory. Meanwhile, as Bank of America said in a Monday report, the searc [...]
  • Mr. President, This Is How To Get The Fed To Launch Quantitative Easing - Aug 21, 2019
    Yesterday, after countless demands that the Fed cut interest rates, Trump finally made his first, long anticipated formal demand that the Fed should pursue "some quantitative easing": .....The Fed Rate, over a fairly short period of time, should be reduced by at least 100 basis points, with perhaps some quantitative easing as well. If that happened, our Economy would be even better, and the World Economy would be greatly and quickly enhanced-good for everyone! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2019 The good news for Trump is that he has now fully figured out that [...]
  • Scientists Discover How Giant Earthquakes Start - Aug 21, 2019
    Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have found that most moderate and large earthquakes are preceded by tiny earthquake clusters, sometimes even weeks before the main shock, according to the  LA Times .  So much for the 'relieving pressure' argument.  "One of the biggest questions in earthquake seismology is how earthquakes get started," said the study's lead author, seismologist Daniel Trugman. "We’re finding that most, if not all, of [significant] earthquakes are preceded by foreshocks that we can detect" using a new [...]
  • North Korea Has Achieved Nuclear Warheads, Japan Claims - Aug 21, 2019
    In what could potentially become a monumental roadblock in US-North Korea nuclear talks, despite all recent good-will expressed between Kim and Trump through exchange of "beautiful" letters, a major annual Japanese defense review seen by Japan's Yomiuri newspaper will say for the first time that Pyongyang likely already possesses warheads in the form of miniaturized nuclear weapons . “It seems that miniaturization and warheads have already been realized,” Japan’s annual defense white paper — set to be approved in by mid-September  [...]
  • 23 Separate Texas Towns Hit By Ransomware Attack At The Same Time - Aug 21, 2019
    The slew of ransomware attacks on U.S. cities that we have documented exhaustively (here , here  and here) looks as though it is continuing. This time, 23 towns in Texas were hit by a "coordinated" ransomware attack late last week, according to CNBC. The state's Department of Information Resources says that the attack started last Friday morning and targeted "smaller local governments" within the state. Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas, ordered a "Level 2 Escalated Response" following the incident. This is part of a four step response protocol and [...]
