The Fed has a hammer, and you're a nail

(Kitco commentary) - Our present moment is precarious. Like it or not - we don't - we live in the age of Central Banks.

Silver fever, or silver fading?

(Kitco commentary) - We finally had a resolution, of sorts, in silver. Since April 13, we have had a falling price of silver (indicated as a rising price of the dollar, as measured in silver).

The Russians (Propaganda) are coming!

(Kitco commentary) - The headline reads "Moscow World Standard to Destroy LBMA's Monopoly in Precious Metals Pricing". Wow! Could it be? Is this it?! The gold revaluation we’ve all been waiting for! Someone, who has the power, will give us a venue in which we can sell our gold at its true price… how does $50,000 sound, eh?

Is gold about to go mainstream?

(Kitco commentary) - Every week Merrill Lynch publishes a Capital Market Outlook Letter. The letters provide market commentary, research and analysis, and the occasional investment idea.

Inflation and gold: what gives?

(Kitco commentary) - In the last Supply and Demand update, we discussed some different theories which attempt to explain what causes the gold and silver prices to move.

Rising Fundamentals for Gold and Silver

(Kitco commentary) - Prices move up and down, in the restless churn of our irredeemable monetary system. There are several schools of thought whose theories attempt to describe, if not predict, the next price move.

Why a yield on gold matters

(Kitco commentary) - Picture, if you can, a world in which gold circulates as the medium of exchange. People pay for everything, from groceries to rent, in gold.

Why isn't gold going up with inflation

(Kitco commentary) - Metatag Description Suggestion: Why hasn't the price of gold risen along with other commodities because of inflation? The answer depends on what causes rising prices and inflation.

Transitory inflation and useless ingredients

(Kitco commentary) - Can you remember back to when you were two or three years old? Toddlers often think that there are little people inside the TV (or maybe this was only true when the TV was about as deep as it was wideâ??and maybe kids today don't think this when looking at a 60-inch flatscreen...)

Silver crash makes silver trash?

(Kitco commentary) - The price of silver dropped a dollar, or over 4% on Wednesday. Some voices in the precious metals press want you to think that there is only one conceivable cause.
