Silver has been under pressure. We saw a little bit of a pop when Mario Draghi did his thing last week. This is an environment where precious metals should be off to the races and yet it’s been down for gold… they are taking gold out to the woodshed.
Everywhere you turn today, gold is again being dismissed as a relic of the past, totally worthless, non-producing, with no place in any modern day portfolio. During the past 3 years, the gold complex has experienced the progressive stages of fear, capitulation, and...
“Buy stocks! It’s a great opportunity! They present great value.” This is the non-stop mantra espoused on financial media. It’s simply astounding given that everyone with a modicum of sense knows stocks are in a bubble and financial media viewership is plunging to...
On the occasion of the launch of the Shanghai International Gold Exchange on September 19, 2014, Zhou Xiaochuan, the governor of the Peoples’ Bank of China (PBOC), reflected on his country’s view of gold. “[The] gold market,” he said, “is an important and integral...
Over the past few months, I have seen an influx of capital and high net worth investors who are getting interested in the junior mining resource area. Now may be the worst time to panic out of the precious metals and junior mining sector into the overbought US dollar....
This Friday is Yom Kippur, the day when Jews around the world ask forgiveness for their transgressions from the year past. Rabbis remind the penitent to dwell on their sins of omission, in which they did nothing when a more thoughtful and proactive action was needed,...
In America, there is a lot of talk about higher interest rates, and I would argue that most of those fears are already factored into the current price of gold. Janet Yellen has not given any indication that she’s going to embark on a cycle of raising interest rates.
The 1999 gold crisis was the turning point in the bankers’ war on gold. Intended to disguise the falling value of fiat paper money, a lower gold price signaled that monetary distress caused by the removal of gold from the international monetary system did not exist,...
September has been a poor month for precious metals. Gold is down 5.2%, despite it being gold’s strongest month from a seasonal perspective. The price fall means that gold is heading for the first quarterly loss this year.
The dollar index rallied to a multi-year high today, but was quickly turned back lower. The USD index is the most overbought it has been in years. The dollar has followed a very predictable pattern during every previous move to such extreme overbought levels (RSI 70+).
This week saw gold rally $15 to $1233 on Tuesday before sliding to $1207 yesterday morning, then rallying in the afternoon. Silver's moves tracked gold's, bottoming out at $17.30 yesterday at the London opening. This morning precious metals are firmer in pre-LBMA trade...
It is widely believed that silver outperforms gold during bull markets for these metals, but that's only partially true. It's true that silver tends to achieve a greater percentage gain than gold from bull-market start to bull-market end. It's also the case that silver...
Today some witless Pollyannas will say the title of this article is inappropriate. Unfortunately, these hapless souls suffer from excessive greed, rampant euphoria and hyper-complacency. Furthermore, they are ignorant of stock market history…and its immutable cycles (...
Some of you may remember those gold ingot vending machines that started to pop up at airports and other places several years ago, which were of course a sign of a top. If they are still there they have probably been reconfigured to dispense cans of coke and candy, and...
The values of gold and silver would be substantially higher if it wasn’t for the massive derivatives market. Americans have no idea that the Derivatives Monster destroyed the ability for the market to properly value physical assets, commodities and the precious metals.
In my opinion, the gold market is too large to be manipulated to any serious extent. While there are many allegations of manipulation, no one has ever shown that there is manipulation that has made any lasting impact on the price of gold. By “shown”, I mean...
GOLD BUYING is boosted more by rising GDP and stronger consumer incomes than by financial crisis, according to a new study from a world-renowned economics professor.
