Is This Why The Rally In Gold & Silver Is Happening? A Shocking Game-Changer For Gold & Silver Is Now Unfolding…

kingworldnews.com

With gold rallying above the key $1,300 level and silver breaking back above $17, is this why the rally in gold and silver is happening?  Today King World News is reporting on a shocking game-changer in the gold and silver markets that is now unfolding.

Eric King:  “Keith, as you know the mid-cycle correction in the gold bull market ended last year.  It was more brutal in terms of duration (over 5 years) vs what we saw in the mid-cycle correction in the 1970s.  I don’t know what it is about this leg of the secular bull market in gold where we are having this correction, but some people are losing it and these are people who have been in the market for 20, 30, 40 years.  There is just something about sentiment in the gold and silver markets right now where some market veterans can’t handle the normal pullbacks, shakeouts, whatever you want to call them, and the usual drama that you see in the gold market.  What are your thoughts on what’s happening?”

A Game-Changer For Gold & Silver Is Now Unfolding
 

Keith Neumeyer:  “The 5-year bear market was hard on everyone and I think the mining executives are probably the most resilient executives out of any industry in the world.  But 5 years is a long time and it was hard on everyone, especially the investors.  The bottom line was the mining sector had to change during that 5-year period and they have done a pretty good job to reduce costs, return to profitability and move with the tide.

The 5-year bear market really pushed everyone in the industry to make the necessary changes, and all the sudden early 2016 comes along and many high-quality mining stocks went up 300, 400, 500 percent….  

Keith Neumeyer continues:  “Everyone was pretty excited and said, ‘Oh my God, finally the bull market is back again!’  And then, boom, in July/August of 2016, the surge ended.  Now stocks are down 50, 60, 70 percent from those highs.  There was a lot of optimism at that peak and now there is a lot of pessimism. Some are worried that no one really knows where we are.  They wonder, ‘Was that a fake out or the beginning of a new bull market?’  That’s the question everyone is asking right now.

The Beginning Of A New Bull Market
 

I believe we are at the beginning of a new bull market.  Investors are short-sighted.  People don’t remember what it was like going back to 2001, 2002, when gold hit $250 and silver was trading in the $4 area.  Then all the sudden the market lit up from 2002 to 2011.  But I would urge people to go back and look at the charts from that time period because there were some gut-wrenching corrections during that period of time.

I remember that 2006 was an absolutely brutal market.  In fact, we had several brutal markets over that 10-year period, yet silver hit $50, up more than 10-times in price, and gold went over $1,900, up 8-times in price.  So these kinds of moves are happening all over again and I think we are going into another 5 to 10 year bull market, and right now, Eric, we are just in one of those normal corrections.”

Eric King:  “There has been such an enormous amount of money printing across the globe.  This has created a moving target for the price of gold, whether it’s $3,000, $4,000, $5,000, or even some calls for $10,000 and higher.  Where are gold and silver prices headed?”

$8,500 Gold And $140 Silver
 

Keith Neumeyer:  “If you just look at the math from the previous bull market where the price of gold went from $250 to $1,900, up roughly 8-times in price, and you call $1,050 the low and gold goes up 8-times, that puts the price of gold near $8,500.  If you do the same kind of math for silver, we will see $130 to $140 silver.  Those are the kinds of price levels I’m expecting to see over the next 5 to 10 years.

And the mining sector is tiny, so when the money starts flowing into the sector again, the sector will absolutely start to fly just like it has many times in the past.  But what happens to most investors is they wake up one morning and they realize the mining share market is already up 100 or 200 percent and they missed the move.  For me, I love to buy things that are on sale.  I love to buy things when no one wants them.  That’s what I’ve done throughout my career building companies.  In all those cases I acquired projects when nobody wanted them.

An Opportunity For Those Brave Enough To Act
 

And circling back to how bad the sentiment is in the gold and silver markets, Eric, let me just give you one example:  First Mining Finance (symbol FF in Canada and FFMGF in the US) just put out a remarkable press release.  First Mining’s Springpole project is one of the largest undeveloped gold projects on the entire planet.  This project is going to be a 300,000 ounce per year producer and it’s got a Net Present Value (NPV) of over a billion dollars.  And on a post-tax basis, it’s around $800 million with a 26 percent internal rate of return.  Those are unheard of numbers, and yet the market cap of First Mining Finance is under $300 million.  Well, the value of just this one asset is close to 3-times the current value of the entire company.  And the stock has basically been trading flat since that news was released.  This is just one example of where this a great opportunity for investors who aren’t afraid to act.”

新移民怕蝸居後悔來港 55%人願定居大灣區

on.cc東網專訊

香港地少人多,居住環境遠比其他城市擠迫,加上樓價不斷攀升,不少內地配偶已未必喜歡移民香港。香港集思會作有關研究發現,超過55%受訪者樂意考慮在「大灣區」(即包括香港、廣東及深圳等鄰近城市)長遠定居。

研究訪問一名40歲內地女性,現與丈夫及其家人居於600呎的藍田公屋單位,但她直言「在內地住慣大屋,最小的單位都有七百呎!香港真的好逼,睡房門邊一旦放了拖鞋,便不能關門了!」若給她重新選擇的話,她或許不會嫁來香港,寧可留在鄉間「住大屋」。另外有個案指,一名哈爾濱的女士與丈夫及其父母居於慈雲山700呎居屋,屋內住7個人,感覺十分擠迫,而且香港房價和租金昂貴,所以於珠海買了一個度假別墅,每隔1、2個月左右上珠海住數天。

另外,研究發現受訪者認為內地發展較看好,7成表示對內地的前景有信心或非常有信心,對香港前景有信心或非常有信心的則有5成。雖然大部分受訪者仍認為現時香港的工作或事業發展機會比內地好,但在投資機會方面,兩地已相距不遠。另外,有6成受訪者認為香港教育制度、醫療制度比內地優勝,相信內地暫時難以追上有關方面。

此外對於兩地政治環境看法,研究亦發現有高達70至80%的受訪者均認為「香港的核心價值,包括廉潔、自由、公義、法治必須維護」,「香港是中國不可分割的一部分」和「國家安全和主權一定要維護」。超過80%受訪者認同「香港要保持『一國兩制』」,但同時有逾4成人認為「一國兩制」已被削弱。

港男婆媽計較孩子氣 港女嫁內地男增逾兩成

香港集思會發表《香港與內地跨境婚姻第二次探討》的研究報告,當中指出近年兩地婚姻呈現四大趨勢,包括「港女」嫁「內地男」數目大增、雙方教育程度顯著提高、夫妻年齡差距縮小、內地配偶在港就業人數增加。香港集思會行政總裁黎黃靄玲表示,近年港女嫁內地男性的數目大幅上升,由1997年不足10%,上升至去年比率達33%;箇中原因是港女對內地印象轉變,過往抗拒認識內地異性,到現在覺得「都唔錯」。

黎指出,研究發現港女與內地男性約會主要希望找具一定學識及獨立經濟能力,例如從事會計師、空中服務員等工作,但同齡港男未必符合她們的擇偶要求。她續說,內地男士印象較港男「慷慨」、「豪爽」,不會太斤斤計較,加上部分更曾「浸過鹹水」,事業前景較明朗,對港女存在一定吸引力。至於內地男士則以獨立、有幹勁和擔當形容香港女生,與內地女生的小鳥依人不同。

以數據計算,港女嫁內地男性由1997年的1190宗,上升至去年的7626宗,升幅達3成半;而港男娶內地女生的數目則下跌超過45%,由1997年的2839宗,跌至去年15,300宗。

有研究個案指出,有港女在廣州升讀大學,畢業後到家人開設的公司工作,認識當供應商的丈夫。港女認為丈夫雖然比自己年輕4年,但思想、行為比實際年齡老成;港男的性格則較「婆媽」和孩子氣,較難吸引自己。

至於研究發現過去20年於兩地跨境結婚的夫婦人數接近100萬,累積結婚宗數逾48萬宗,相等於現時香港家庭住戶比例約20%,而每年新增的跨境婚姻數目超過2萬,佔全港結婚總數40%或以上。研究以問卷調查訪問了804名跨境結婚的人士,發現過往香港人與內地人結婚,幾乎一面倒會申請內地配偶來港團聚,但有受訪者認為兩地經濟差距縮小,加上香港居住環境比內地擠迫,內地配偶已未必喜歡移居香港,而居住環境亦成為近年跨境婚姻的最大挑戰。

Hurricane Maria Has Transformed Puerto Rico Into A "Cash Only" Economy

當無電力時, 現金是皇 !

www.zerohedge.com

Electricity, internet access and cell phone service have been offline in parts of Puerto Rico for a whole week. And with the island still struggling to rescue people stranded in remote villages, those managing the emergency recovery effort have yet to focus their attentions on the monumental task that looms ahead: Rebuilding the island’s devastated infrastructure, from communications to sewers and water treatment plants that have been damaged by flash flooding and 155 mph winds that Hurricane Maria visited upon the island.

The damage, as Bloomberg reports, has essentially knocked Puerto Rico’s economy back into the 1950s. For locals who’re struggling to begin the process of rebuilding their damaged homes, shops across the island are only accepting cash.

The cash economy has reigned in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria decimated much of the U.S. commonwealth last week, leveling the power grid and wireless towers and transporting the island to a time before plastic existed. The state of affairs could carry on for weeks or longer in some remote parts of the commonwealth, and that means it could be impossible to trace revenue and enforce tax rules.

The situation further frustrates one of the many challenges already facing a government that has sought a form of bankruptcy protection after its debts swelled past $70 billion: boosting revenue by collecting money that slips through the cracks.

The cash-only economy could create problems for the island’s cash-strapped government, as business owners will no doubt be tempted to avoid declaring some of their revenues, depriving PR’s government of badly needed revenue.

 In fact, the power blackout only exacerbates a situation that has always been, to a degree, a fact of life in Puerto Rico. Outside the island’s tourist hubs, many small businesses simply never took credit cards, with some openly expressing contempt for tax collectors and others claiming it was just a question of not wanting to deal with the technology.

But those were generally vendors of bootleg DVDs, fruit stands, barbers - not major supermarkets. Now, the better part of the economy is in the same boat.

And after a week without power, the few ATMs on the island that still work have run dry, while most others are simply out of service.

As Bloomberg reports, many Puerto Ricans were still living off what money they thought to withdraw ahead of the storm. When a branch of Banco Popular in San Juan opened on Monday morning, the line stretched about 200 people deep for banking and ATM services. People fanned themselves with whatever they could find and held umbrellas against the sun. At the back stood Giddel Galliza, 64, a music teacher.

“I didn’t want to come because of the lines,” he said. “I need money for basic needs, food, gas - my tank is full but it won’t be forever. I normally pay with my card.”

A similar situation unfolded at a Banco Santander across the street. Erasmo Santiago, a 63-year-old mailman, said he was actually a Popular client but opted to pay a fee and go for the slightly shorter line. “I have my mom living with me, she’s 83,” he said. “So I need money.”

Some store owners, even those in areas of San Juan that are heavily policed, worry that carrying so much cash could leave them vulnerable to a robbery.

In post-hurricane San Juan on Monday, commerce picked up ever so slightly. With a little effort, you could get the basics and sometimes more: diapers, medicine, or even a gourmet hamburger smothered in fried onions and gorgonzola cheese.
But almost impossible to find was a place that accepted credit cards.
“Cash only,” said Abraham Lebron, the store manager standing guard at Supermax, a supermarket in San Juan’s Plaza de las Armas. He was in a well-policed area, but admitted feeling like a sitting duck with so many bills on hand. “The system is down, so we can’t process the cards. It’s tough, but one finds a way to make it work.”

Ultimately, turning the ATMs back on probably ranks lower on the island’s list of priorities than, say, keeping the diesel generators that are powering hospitals in operation, or evacuating 70,000 people from a river valley in danger of being flooded after a nearby dam failed.

Depending on how long outages persist, Puerto Ricans in some areas may need to resort to bartering for essential goods, as residents find ever more creative ways to transact in the absence of modern technology.

法4匪劫中餐館東主兄妹 狂毆頭兼槍塞口

on.cc東網專訊

法國馬恩河畔維利耶爾市一對中餐館東主兄妹,上周五(22日)深夜返回住所時遭四名匪徒持槍搶劫,掠走2萬歐元(約19萬港元)現款,女方期間更遭毆打及用槍塞進口中威嚇。

案發於晚上11時半,華裔女東主及其兄長一同收工離開,走路回到同一條街的獨立屋住所。他們走至大門之際,四名持械蒙面男子突然出現,把他們推進屋內,其中兩人持手槍,另一人則有催淚噴霧。

匪徒隨即把兄長制服在地上,用膠紙綑綁;然後又毆打女東主的頭部,把手槍對着女子的太陽穴和塞進口裏,威脅她交出錢財,並查問屋內有沒有夾萬。匪徒在受害人住所逗留接近一小時,最後掠走2萬歐元和他們的手提電話。二人其後自行鬆綁後報警,警方正追查案件。

便攜檢測器 速查過敏食物

on.cc東網專訊

患有食物過敏的人在飲食上往往要小心翼翼,但有時候錯誤標籤或交叉污染實在令人防不勝防。英國哈佛大學醫學院為此研究出能快速、低成本並準確檢測食物過敏原的便攜式裝置「iEAT」,其體型輕巧,甚至可以當作鑰匙扣飾品。

iEAT可以檢測出花生、榛子、小麥、牛奶和蛋清等共五種會導致過敏的常見食物,使用者只需將食物放在提取工具的滑片上,再將滑片插入iEAT中,不出十分鐘便可以得出結果。以會引起過敏的麩質為例,美國要求「無麩質」食品中的麩質濃度不可高出千萬分之二百,iEAT則可檢測出千萬分之一的麩質,可說是非常準確。

颶風襲多明尼加 兩批逾500名中國公民撤離

on.cc東網專訊

加勒比島國多明尼加受颶風「瑪麗亞」(Maria)重創,第一批共158名的中國公民,包括兩名台灣人及一名剛滿月的嬰兒,已緊急轉移至鄰近的安提瓜和巴布達並獲妥善安置。而第二批,也是最後一批撤出的300多名華人華僑和中資企業員工將被轉移,他們將首先被安置在安巴首都聖約翰港各處,接下來陸續回國。在多明尼加的500多名中國公民,已經全部撤離當地。

外交部發言人陸慷周一(25日)表示,瑪麗亞重創多明尼加,當地交通、通訊全面癱瘓,機場關閉,物資供應十分匱乏。中國政府向多明尼加表達誠摯慰問,並立即啟動了緊急人道主義應急響應機制,將盡快提供緊急人道主義援助。

陸慷又指,事發後外交部立即啟動應急機制,駐當地及周邊國家的大使館已採取措施,緊急協助同胞轉移,並由衷感謝有關國家為此提供幫助和支持。

朝外長:特朗普言論如宣戰 有權擊落轟炸機

on.cc東網專訊

朝鮮半島局勢持續緊張,北韓揚言會在太平洋試爆氫彈,美國則派出B-1B戰略轟炸機飛至北韓「家門」。北韓外長李勇浩周一(25日)表示,美國總統特朗普周日(24日)在Twitter的貼文是「向北韓宣戰」,又稱北韓有權擊落在領空外的美軍轟炸機。

李勇浩周一形容,特朗普在Twitter稱「他們(李勇浩及金正恩)不久之後便不會立足於此」的言論,是明顯向北韓宣戰。李勇浩強調:「全世界都要清楚記住,是美國先向我們宣戰。」他更聲言,北韓有權採取任何行動反擊,包括擊落美國的轟炸機。據報,北韓周一較早前亦曾向多個國家及組織發公開信,譴責特朗普的言論。

另外,美國國防部長馬蒂斯周一啟程前往印度訪問時,亦有回應李勇浩在聯合國大會上的挑釁發言,指北韓威脅在太平洋試爆氫彈是對無視全球人民的安危,行為令人震驚及不負責任。不過,他拒絕評論,一旦北韓把威脅付諸實行會否導致戰爭。而北韓問題亦會是馬蒂斯訪問印度3日期間,一大重點的地區安全議題。

李勇浩上周六(23日)在聯合國大會發言,批評特朗普侮辱北韓領袖金正恩為「火箭人」,犯下無法挽回的錯誤,令北韓導彈無可避免射到美國本土。特朗普之後在周日發文回應指:「剛剛聽到北韓外長在聯合國的發言,若他繼續與火箭人一唱一和,他們不久之後便不會立足於此。」
