Latest Gold Articles

After a surprisingly strong and especially fast rally from an oversold bottom in mid-December at 1,236 USD up to 1,365 USD within less than seven weeks - and the recent pullback down to 1,305 USD, gold has been rushing back up towards 1,360 USD over the last couple...

In the past few weeks, we have argued that interest rates will not rise. We have made our arguments based on observable cases of soft credit demand that falls with rising rates, and analysis of the incentives on creditors and debtors. Ours is a case that rates can’t...

For those that follow me regularly, you will know that I have been tracking a set-up for the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA:GDX), which I analyze as a proxy for the metals mining market. I believe that GDX can outperform the general ...

The U.S. has been a net importer of energy since 1953, but that’s set to change early next decade, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). In its highly anticipated Annual Energy Outlook 2018, the agency forecasts...

As a technical trader, I like it when multiple charts, indicators, and asset classes agree with each other for trade setups. This short article is to show you some of the things I look at which provide a buy signal for gold stocks.

After rallying from its 2540 low as quickly as it came down, SPX completed a .618 retracement of its decline and looks ready to move down again. Since there is no distribution at its last Friday high, it is possible that it will have to create some if it is now...

Gold continues to prepare to break out of its giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern. As we can see on its 8-year chart below, this base pattern has been developing for getting on for 5-years now, so it has major implications. Upside volume has been building for a...

Inflation is back. So what does this mean for gold? The consumer price index came in hotter than expected at 2.1%. A CNBC report said the number "pushes the economy toward a potential danger zone for inflation."

Gold spiked in January, and looked to be headed even higher. But there were some problems. First, futures speculators - as tracked by the Commitment of Traders (COT) report - had gone overwhelmingly long, and since they tend to be wrong at emotional extremes, this...

Such a high hurdle indeed: Base Camp 1377. For as we stated a week ago, each time gold as if a magnet pulls in the prices of the 1360s, 'tis is repelled by the pushing forces emanating down from the opposing iconic magnet at 1377, ostensibly gold's highest hurdle in...

Here’s something we don’t see every day; the Dow Jones correcting over 10% in just nine trading days (January 26th to February 8th), then snapping back 5% in the next five. And the violence of the 10% decline, seen in Mr Bear’s report card below is remarkable.

The stock market pullback of the last couple of weeks has shown that markets are jittery, and will likely be volatile for a while as investors keep a vigil on rising bond yields (inflation) and potential interest rate hikes. In these uncertain times, one sector that...

Over the past month, we have heard a growing roar of dissent and fear as people within the United States and around the financial world worried about a rapidly approaching deadline. A deadline, that if reached, would spell disaster for all!

Despite a tough week for stocks into Friday, February 9, three big picture macro indicators have continued to support a risk ‘on’ backdrop. Many of the shorter-term indicators we watch, like Junk bond ratios and the Palladium/Gold ratio say the same thing.

Here are today's videos and charts.

In January the stock market recorded all-time highs in its strongest start since 1987, as investors gave a “thumbs up” to the Trump growth agenda of massive tax cuts, infrastructure spending and a loosening of regulations. Business too gave a “thumbs up” for an...

The gold miners’ stocks weathered the recent stock-market plunge really well. As evident in their leading GDX ETF, they were already beaten down before stock markets started falling. The resulting explosion of fear bled into GDX, forcing it even lower. Nevertheless...

This article and another were written for Miles Franklin. Read them here and here. Since this article was written in early January stock indices have bubbled higher. Some analysts have dreamed of a “melt-up” for stock markets. Regardless, bubbles crash eventually....

US economics is extremely predictable. It doesn’t matter who is President and what party he comes from. Because every president will spend more money than the US can afford. On average, US Federal debt has doubled every 8 years since Reagan came t...

As I watched Wednesday’s CPI (inflation) number reported by the Commerce Department, I was immediately reminded of that classic scene from legendary WWII flick “Casablanca” where Claude Rains, playing police Captain Renault, shuts down Humphrey Bogart’s casino/...

Having a subscription to TFMetals Report is truly awesome. The knowledge that flows through that site, even on the free side, is truly remarkable. I was reading what Craig had to say about gold and silver making that huge move on Wednesday Feb 14, as I wasn’t really...

We have been here several times before over the last year.  The market has bottomed, provided us with a strong rally, but has failed to confirm the major break out for which we have been looking.  As I noted over the weekend, the ...
"Stocks are going down because the economy is too good?" How many times did you hear something like that quote over the last two weeks on television? And, it was accompanied by the barrage of reports proclaiming the demise of the bull marke...

Gold rose as the dollar fell to near a three-year low against a basket of currencies on Friday, heading for its biggest weekly loss in nine months, as a slew of bearish factors including firming inflation and a fall in retail sales and industrial production hit the...

Is inflation good for gold? It depends. If inflation provokes a hawkish Fed to raise rates faster than inflation, not so much. But if the Fed is worried about the stock and bond markets and therefore won't raise rates fast enough to keep pace with inflation, that's...

We live in very specific times. Getting a “like” on a post or picture becomes a necessary daily activity and means of self-validation. Not “liking” something that others posted or that is massively “liked” like may be frowned upon or even viewed a...
