The Voldemort Effect in the Gold Market

Gold market analysts have for many years puzzled over the unusual behaviour of the gold market during the 1990s, specifically the bizarrely flat gold price from 1993 to 1996 in the face of sustained selling pressure from central banks and gold miners hedging their production.

Silver Relative Strength Report, 27 Mar, 2016

Gold went down (as the muggles would measure it, in dollars). It dropped almost 40 bucks. Silver fell almost 60 cents.

This pushed the gold-silver ratio down about two whole points, with virtually the whole move on Friday. Last […]

Terms like fractional reserve and […]
