Japan's long and sordid dance with unconventional monetary policy continues. With most analysts expecting a 'nothingburger' from Kuroda (though some hinting at the potential for shock-and-awe), The BOJ delivered... nothing - no change. However, most critically, the BOJ admitted defeat of deflation and delayed the timing of reaching their 2% inflation goal to around FY2019. No change to policy: BOJ Maintains 10-Year JGB Yield Target at About 0.000% BOJ Maintains Policy Balance Rate

At exactly 3:56 EST, a clearly-motivated seller decided it was the best time to unload 2,741 August pieces of paper gold, driving the market down $4.50 instantaneously. If the gold were actually physically delivered into the buyer, that chunk would be 274,100 ozs, or roughly $360mm worth of gold...INTERESTINGLY, the very next minute, some entity BOUGHT 2,373 August paper gold contracts, nearly offsetting the amount of contracts sold.... The question I have is whether or not the flash crash sale was perpetrated to induce the hedge fund black algos to mechanically sell, assuming stop-losses

Authored by Jacob Hornberger via RonPaulLibertyReport.com, Ever since the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, we have been hit with a multiplicity of bromides, myths, falsehoods, and deceptions by U.S. officials and the mainstream media. “Saddam was coming to get us with his WMDs.”   “Mushroom clouds were going to start appearing over U.S. cities.”   “The troops in Iraq are defending our freedoms.”   "The troops are bringing freedom and

Content originally published at iBankCoin.com Jared Kushner attorney Jamie Gorelick announced late last week that she will be disengaging from all things Russia when it comes to the President's son-in-law and advisor, and will instead focus on 'wrapping up' she said she was originally hired to do - a move which makes sense in light of Kushner's announcement today that he will testify in front of congress next Monday. In Gorelick's place, veteran criminal defense attorney Abbe

The Wall Street Journal published a headline today that should strike fear into the heart of every crusaders in the fight for $15: “Robots Are Replacing Workers Where You Shop.” As the story explains, Wal-Mart is replacing some of its non-customer facing workers with robots, like bookkeepers who were responsible for counting and storing the store's cash supply. “Last August, a 55-year-old Wal-Mart employee found out her job would now be done by a robot.

Some have fallen apart on the way to approval, thanks to harmful concessions to powerful law enforcement lobbies. Other have made it through intact, potentially ending years of abuse. Thirteen states have already added conviction requirements for

Authored by James Rickards via The Daily Reckoning, Last week the Fed raised the white flag on further rate hikes. There won’t be any for the foreseeable future. No rate hikes are coming at the July, September or November Fed FOMC meetings. The earliest rate hike might be at the December 13, 2017 FOMC meeting, but even that has a less than 50% probability as of today. I’ll update those probabilities using my proprietary models in the weeks and months ahead. The white flag of

Having seemingly just been handed a stinging defeat on Obamacare, the Trump administration is desperate to deliver some 'wins' for the people who voted him into office.  After all, he did promise voters "so much winning that you'll get tired of winning." As the New York Times points out today, one such win could come in the form of recent advances on the construction of that "physically imposing" yet "aesthetically pleasing" border wall that was a cornerstone of Trump's campaign last
