The precious metals market is huge. It is also an interesting one where customers will very likely become suppliers in the same market. This is because most of the products sold in the market are not consumed, but rather kept as savings or as insurance against economic and financial uncertainty. Realizing this, Nubex has developed an exchange platform, specially designed for precious metal products, allowing sellers to meet buyers for a price discovery, and help facilitate direct transactions between them. Although typical with other products, this platform is uncommon orRead More
There is a new trend by individuals in the alternative media community who are now selling out of precious metals and buying into Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. While this may seem like a good idea, especially when Bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies reach new all-time highs, it is likely a big mistake. Now, I am not saying that individuals shouldn’t invest in cryptocurrencies. Rather, it’s a lousy idea to sell all of one’s precious metals holdings and put it all into Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Recently, Sean at SGTReport published a short videoRead More

This bar was discovered only because it was 2 grams lighter than it ought to have been: the forgers failed to add quite enough gold to the outside of the bar to make up for the weight lost when they replaced gold with tungsten. But if they’d gotten the weight right, it wouldRead More

The CBOE/Comex Gold Volatility Index, a rough proxy for the amount of fun and profit available for precious metal traders, touched a record low of 10.17 last month, from levels north of 37. That may be overdue aRead More

Iran Should Go For Gold, Not A Currency Reform Illusion

Last December, the Iranian government of Hassan Rouhani passed a bill to change the name of Iran’s national currency from the rial to the toman. This would require a redenomination in which one zero was lopped off Iran’s unit of account, as 1 toman is equal to 10 rials. Without a change in the monetary and exchange rate regime, the proposed changes amount to a great illusion. Iran’s currency is, of course, one of the many reasons for Iran’s economic dysfunction. Indeed, since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, the rialRead More
