Important Message For Customers:

The Ontario Government has legislated that all non-essential businesses MUST BE closed BY 12:01 am on March 25. The health and safety of our employees, clients and our community is our top priority. To do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19, our staff are working remotely until further notice.

Furthermore, our carrier, UPS, has notified us that all shipments will not be insured and will not require a client’s signature upon delivery until further notice. Given the nature of our business, we are not willing to take that risk with your investments. As a result, we are temporarily suspending all shipments within Canada until UPS lifts these protocols.

Use e-mail for more expedient service.

Please be assured that your orders will be shipped to you as soon as we can. These are valuable investments you are making, and we want to make sure we send them in a safe, secured and insured manner. Should you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at 1-888-861-0775 or email us at sales@sprottmoney.com

Thanks for your patience and understanding in this difficult time.

Surprise, Surprise! The FED Decides to Keep Rates Steady - Nathan McDonald

Surprise, Surprise! The FED Decides to Keep Rates Steady - Nathan McDonald
By Nathan McDonald 4 years ago 9552 Views No comments

September 22, 2016

Well, there you go! As predicted, Janet Yellen and her peers within the FED have decided once again to take the dovish approach and keep rates steady, opting not to raise them.

The markets foolishly were entertaining the idea that they would increase them, but as I have stated before, this is not in the FED's best interest and they have no intentions of setting the markets spinning before the elections are settled in November.

Raising rates would directly harm the markets and send them lower. It would hurt Obama's legacy on his way out the door and thus damage the chances of his successor, Hillary Clinton, winning come November 8th.

Now, many market pundits are coming to the same conclusion that most of us in the precious metals community have reached long ago. Rates are going to remain dovish, the markets are going to continue to stagnant, and all the funny money in the world is not going to dig us out of this mess.

Many others are saying that she "missed her best chance to raise rates". Perhaps this is the truth, as the high from the copious amounts of money printed is rapidly losing its effects and reality is setting in that we are in no better of a position than when this crisis began back in 2008.

In fact, we are in a far more dangerous scenario, with hostilities against Russia at all-time highs, terrorism running amuck due to horribly flawed Western policies, and a stock market that could tank any day now.

Now market participants are looking into next year and asking the questions, "will the FED raise rates then?" and "can they, even if they wanted to?". The answer is complicated and is undoubtedly yes, they can, but the reality is, will they? Unlikely.

For now, the MOPE continues and the blind continue to lead the blind. Markets are rising and the high keeps going. For now.
