As Goldman Sachs has pointed out, there are several strange trends in today’s global economy, with one showing central banks (CBs) increasingly injecting money into electronic coins to better feed markets and simplify money exchange processes. Meanwhile, billions of dollars in physical currency and precious metals are literally disappearing, as Zero Hedge points out in a recent overview. Goldman Sachs wrote earlier this week “gold’s strategic case is still strong” in light of “geopolitical uncertainty”, with governments eagerly zeroing in on cash and gold caches. As the investment titan noted, “CBs globally have been buying gold at a very strong pace” and “2019 looks to be a record year for CB gold purchases with our target of 750 tonnes combined purchases likely to be met".

The coming holiday weekend is taking shape as a prototype for summer: Blue skies, highs in the 70s at Tahoe and across the Sierra Nevada, dozens of full lakes and hundreds of campgrounds opening this week. In the Sierra, Cascade and Siskiyou ranges, the snowline is roughly 7,000 to 8,000 feet, depending on slope exposure. Above that, the high country is still loaded. At Lassen Volcanic National Park, for instance, snowplow crews reported a snow depth of 14 feet on the Lassen Park Highway at an elevation of 8,500 feet near the foot of 10,457-foot Lassen Peak. Come the weekend, campsite availability at gorgeous lakeside sites will be the best in five years. The Forest Service is opening hundreds of sites this week. It will get even better from mid-June into July as the snow melts in the high country. For camping, a phenomenon developed this past winter when roughly 15,000 Californians gamed the reservation system and locked up the sites at a relative handful of marquee campgrounds for … [Read more...] about Last-minute options for Memorial Day weekend
