U.S. Money Reserve Speaks Out – Rising Value of Gold in Today’s Market

U.S. Money Reserve was recently discussed on Enterprise Radio hosted by Eric Dye. Philip N. Diehl, President of U.S. Money Reserve, discussed the history of this firm, their principles, and the philosophies that contribute to the overall success of the nationÕs largest distributors of government-issued Gold, Silver, Platinum and coins.

When Diehl was asked to discuss his background in the precious metals market, he reminded Eric Dye that he was the Director of the U.S. Mint. During Bill Clinton’s Presidential term he appointed Philip Diehl as Director of the U.S. Mint. Diehl held his position for several years and considered that period of his career to be most rewarding and provided him the background and experience to head the U.S. Money Reserve.

U.S. Money Reserve stands out from its competitors because of the in-depth training provided to the staff, broad knowledge of all the golds in the world and the grades of gold and silver, and the history of precious metals relating to economic challenges around the world. U.S. Money Reserve prides itself on customer service. Their goal is not to acquire clients, but to offer superior service and maintain their client-base for decades to come. Their client base in numbers exceeds several hundred thousand members, and they have the staff and education to maintain their client base. One of DiehlÕs achievements has been the ever-popular 50 States Quarter Program, launching the first-ever U.S. Government-issued platinum coin.

When asked what he felt impacted the gold market over the last two decades, he quickly responded by saying, when people ask him this he focuses on four factors in which US Money Reserve must meet according to a report on PR News Wire. One is the 2008 financial crisis, and it created a lot of fear in the market, and when there is fear in the market, there is a flight to quality and wealth insurance, a store of value. Gold has played that role for thousands of years and it will for many decades and for centuries to come. Secondly a new demand from gold Gold ETF, Electronically Traded Funds.

Another factor is speculation and uncertainty of the direction of monetary policies from Federal Reserves. What ETF gave in the bull market before 2011 it took away in the bear market. The liquidity of ETF led to a lot of volatility in the market accelerating the downturn. Lastly the rising value of the dollar, which is an offset growing demand for gold. People donÕt realize that approximately 65% of the demand for gold are out of China and India.

MARTIN SHKRELI SKIPS CONGRESSIONAL HEARING

FORMER DRUG CEO MARTIN SHKRELI SKIPS CONGRESS’ CALL TO TESTIFY

If Congressional leaders thought they would get answers from former pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli regarding his purchase of a number of drugs and then dramatically increasing the price, they were disappointed. Mr. Shkreli evoked his U. S. Constitutional Fifth Amendment Right against self incrimination on all questions presented to him by the congressional forum. With close ties to Laidlaw & Company and other investment bankers, Mr. Shkreli almost could not contain his disdain for the congressional forum seeking answers in his actions to increase the price of a drug fifty times over overnight.

Shkreli, was the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, before he was indicted on United States securities charges for fraud, this past December. As Shkreli continued to press his right against testifying, various members of the Congressional “House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform” expressed their anger toward him. One member threaten to find Shkreli in contempt but decided to take no action. This did not keep Shkreli from expressing his contempt for the Congressional hearing by tweeting the the members of the Congressional panel were “imbeciles.”MARTIN SHKRELI REFUSES TO TESTIFY

The members of the panel have not indicated whether they would take any further action. Legal experts doubt that further hearings will be called while Shkreli is under indictment. If found guilty of the federal charge levied against him, Shkreli could face up to ten years in federal prison. Shkreli has not been scheduled a new court date yet.
