The Fed’s Monetary “Experiment” Is a Failure

More and more mainstream investors are waking up to the economic problems stemming from the Federal Reserve’s unprecedented amount of money-printing in the last six years. This new opinion piece from Investor’s Business Daily takes a look at Janet Yellen’s congressional testimony and explains why the economy will be reeling for years from the damage done by QE. If you agree with people like Peter Schiff and believe that the “Real Crash” is approaching, make sure you’ve protected your savings with physical gold and silver.

“The recovery is not yet ‘complete,’ Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen suggested Tuesday, but the central bank plans to let interest rates rise anyway. We’ll soon learn just how solid this so-called recovery is.

‘The economy is continuing to make progress toward the Fed’s objectives of maximum employment and price stability,’ Yellen told Congress, predicting ‘a moderate pace’ of growth for the economy ‘over the next several years.’

Sadly, we don’t fully share her rosy outlook. Indeed, we think the Fed’s extraordinary interventions over the past 5-1/2 years have distorted markets and prices, and have held the economy back.”

The Fed Has Trapped Itself In a Market Mirage

In a new commentary published by The Gold Republic Journal, renowned author and economist Jim Rickards explains why the Federal Reserve cannot safely exit its quantitative easing program. Rickards argues that the supposed strength of the US markets is a complete mirage created by the Fed’s policies.

“The Federal Reserve, the central bank of the US, is nearing the end of its ability to manipulate the US economy without producing consequences worse that those it set out to avoid in 2008. The Fed has no good exits from seven years of market manipulation. If it continues its current policy of reducing purchases of assets, the so-called ‘tapering,’ it risks throwing the U.S. into a recession. If it reverses course and pauses the taper and later increases asset purchases, it risks destroying confidence in the dollar among foreign creditors of the U.S. Both outcomes are potentially disastrous, but there are no good outcomes on the horizon. This is the result of manipulating markets to the point where they no longer function as markets providing useful price signals and guiding the efficient allocation of capital. Today markets are a mirage, created by the Federal Reserve, which is caught in a prison of its own device.”

Gold for Risk Protection in 2014

In its latest Investment Commentary, the World Gold Council explains why gold outperformed most assets in the first half of 2014, contrary to many analysts’ predictions. The report also shares the latest research on why gold is an essential asset for protecting your portfolio from high-risk debt and potential market volatility. The big takeaway – when it comes to risk protection in the second half of 2014, gold is one of your cheapest and most reliable options.

“Gold is up by 9.2% so far this year. This surprised many market participants as most analysts predicted lower prices. Some investors took advantage of last year’s price correction to buy gold but investment demand has remained tepid. We consider that the current environment of high bond issuance, tight credit spreads and record low volatility continues to offer a prime opportunity for investors to add gold. In our view, gold can reduce overall portfolio risk and it is cheaper to implement than many volatility-based strategies.”

Gold Videocast: Gold’s 2014 Half-Time Report

In the first edition of the new Gold Videocast, Peter delivers his verdict on the gold market for the first half of 2014, analyzes Janet Yellen’s performance so far as Fed Chair, and makes some contrarian forecasts for the rest of the year.

1:00 – Gold’s rise has confounded Wall Street banks that advised their clients to sell in expectation of a big correction.

1:40 – Even though the financial media has focused on the Dow breaking 17,000, gold has actually outperformed the Dow this year.

2:10 – Mainstream forecasters have bought into the narrative of a genuine US economic recovery and the ability of the Fed to effectively withdraw its monetary stimulus. In fact, the economy is not recovering and will relapse into recession, perhaps beginning in the second half of 2014.

3:17 – The price of gold is putting in a bottom, supported by the mining stocks. They led the market down in 2013, and are now leading it up.

4:15 – There is going to be a short squeeze as gold sellers try to buy back their positions when they realize the economy is not recovering.

5:30 – Even though the Fed’s own inflation measure has passed its target of 2%, Janet Yellen continues to claim inflation is under control.

Gold Is the Only Undervalued Asset in a World of Bubbles (Video)

In this long segment on CNBC’s Futures Now, Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, and Dennis Gartman discuss the massive bubbles forming in almost every asset class. Faber called for a potential bear market correction of 30% in US stocks. All three agreed that gold is the best option for retail investors to protect themselves from the Federal Reserve’s inflationary monetary policy.

“The only place there’s not a bubble is in gold, and that’s the only place that most people on Wall Street think they see one. They’re oblivious to the actual bubbles, but they’re overlooking the value in gold…”
