Bullish Data For COMEX Gold – Craig Hemke (13/08/2018)

by Craig Hemke, Sprott Money:

CFTC-generated data for COMEX gold has reached levels normally considered extreme and bullish… but nothing about precious metals trading in the summer of 2018 is “normal”.

Well, another week has passed and even more important milestones have been reached from a Commitment of Traders perspective:

1. The Commercial NET short position has fallen to just 25,609 contracts. This is the smallest level seen since the CoT report dated 12/1/15, just two weeks before the bear market lows of $1050.

Eric Hadik – Gold Poised to Go Higher in Q4

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

Eric Hadik joined us for a look at current market conditions. When it comes to gold (and silver too) Eric Hadik has had an amazing track over the past several years. He pretty much called the current low point in medal prices. And now he’s calling for higher metal prices during Q4 and early Q1. Of course you could argue that it’s all seasonal and there’s no great insight here, but look at his previous calls and let’s see if he’s right yet again.

LBMA at the Movies: Golden Turkeys

by Ronan Manly, BullionStar:

In March of this year, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) released a series of short videos about various aspects of the London precious metals markets and the role the LBMA claims to plays in those markets. In the words of the LBMA:

“LBMA, the Global Authority for Precious Metals, has released five short films highlighting the pivotal role it plays in the global wholesale precious metals market by setting standards and developing market services thus ensuring the highest levels of integrity, transparency and quality.”

While calling these short clips ‘films’ is a bit ludicrous, the series of videos – which are indeed very short – are as follows, and they can be seen on the LBMA website as well as on the LBMA’s YouTube channel:

Tech giants’ banning of Alex Jones just woke up the whole world to the Orwellian horror of social media

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

The tech giants just committed a massive strategic error by wholesale banning / memory holing InfoWars / Alex Jones into oblivion. Now, they’ve awakened a huge array of outspoken thinkers who, even if they don’t agree with Alex Jones, are now defending his right to speak.

Right now, in real time, YouTube is reportedly banning videos that speak out against YouTube’s censorship of Alex Jones. Seriously. You’re banned from talking about other people being banned. Thankfully, I saw this coming a year ago and began building REAL.video, the free speech alternative to YouTube. Popularity of the platform is exploding, with hundreds of new channels joining each day.
