Bear's Lair

Bear Markets always follow Bull markets and a severe stock market correction is long overdue. Bears Lair will spot, monitor and analyze the stock market correction as it develops.

 

Analyst Hubbart’s Video compares the bullish flag formation of GDX; and compares same to the 3X ETF (NUGT) that mirror’s the price movements. He sees potential for material profits in NUGT if GDX can reach its bull flag price target.
It is understandable if many readers choose to view the current financial nightmare concocted by Western bankers as an “economic Hell”, however it would be only a moderately appropriate metaphor. To truly capture the quality and severity...
Not familiar with DrDoolittle but a few brief notes on the article. NUGT is compared with GDX. Both are ETFs and both are based upon the performance of the NYSE Acra Gold Miners Index (GDM). The NUGT IS NOT directly based upon the GDX.
We are no fans of the Fed-sponsored stock market takeover, but that seems to be the way of central planners, these days…eliminate free markets and get them to react how it puts central planning and Lying Ben’s disastrous QE4Ever in a...
In this Weekend Report I would like to show you gold from the short term perspective to the long term look and everything between. As you know gold made a bottom back in June of this year that is still the low point for this two year...
Since Ben Bernanke uttered the word “taper” before the summer kicked-off, the tone in the financial markets has been markedly different. Even though taper has been the hot term on Wall Street for three months, the market’s focus remains...
A great week really in the big scheme of things. We saw markets continue to correct and consolidate and they are bouncing a bit now. This is the kind of action we really want to see so we can have a nice run into the end of the year.
I don't want to put too great a shine on the sentiment indicator readings, but they have changed quite radically this week and deserve some coverage.

Back in November 2003, before the Hat Trick Letter was hatched and launched, a seminal article was written about 25 reasons why Gold will rise. It was updated afterwards, around 2008 with a couple more reasons.

In Part I ( http://www.gold-eagle.com/article/theory-interest-and-prices-paper-curre... ), we looked at the concepts of nonlinearity, dynamics, multivariate, state, and contiguity. We showed that whatever the relationship may be between...

The PRICE of gold held just shy of last week's 2-month closing high in London trade on Friday, retreating $10 from an overnight high of $1380 per ounce as world stock markets also held flat.

I confess. This was a new one on me. I had never heard of a “Bullhorn” pattern. I saw it mentioned first in a weekly article from a gentleman who writes under the moniker of “Thirdeyeopentrades”. “Thirdeyeopentrades” appears to be someone...
The US stock markets have enjoyed a dazzling year, levitating to a long series of new record highs. But this relentless advance has stalled in August, with selling pressure mounting. Even most of the bulls readily agree that a material...

Recently Contributing Editor Morris Hubbartt has been providing his gold and silver market analysis via videos.  Here are his latest videos:

Invariably, as the price of silver and gold begins moving higher, more investors will be drawn in to the mostly paper precious metals market.

Has there ever been an asset class bombarded by such intense negativity in such a short period of time? Fed Chairman Bernanke’s warning in May that the Fed would soon begin to ‘taper’ its QE bond-buying stimulus program brought ‘The End of...
During the in extremis phases, we analysts often referred to the Eurozone by its touristy moniker ‘Club Med’. Well we’ve got a much more serious club to deal with right here on our own shores. This is something I and many others have been...
Low prices lead to high prices. The (latest) two-year price-suppression campaign from the banking cabal targeting the precious metals sector provides a text-book illustration of this economic principle. When you cripple the supply-chain,...

NUGT is the symbol for DIREXION’s Daily Gold Miners Bull 3X Shares listed on the NYSE.  In September 2011 NUGT was over $2,000/share.  Since that time NUGT’s share price has relentlessly fallen as a con

On Wednesday the Fed released the minutes from its July 30-31 policy meeting.  Minutes from the meeting showed that most members of the FOMC agreed that a reduction of the stimulus was not yet appropriate.  Only a few thought it was tim...

As we noted recently, the Federal Reserve has explicitly mentioned tapering in their recent communications, and President Obama has commented numerous times on avoiding another round of asset bubbles. Today’s Fed minutes were non-committal...

As all of you know that have subscribed to this newsletter since 2006 and watched my YouTube channel since 2008, I left the commercial banking industry in 2004 because of my disdain for what I saw to be an increasingly unfeeling, greedy...

The PRICE of gold recovered overnight losses after the release of US Federal Reserve meeting notes in London trade Thursday morning, rising back to $1375 as major stock markets also rose with commodities.

Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bull 3X Shares is listed on the NYSE – and its symbol is NUGT. If we get it wrong on timing this won’t go bust, unlike many juniors, it will just grind lower still. If we get are right, however, the gains are...
In 1991, the Indian government pledged the nation’s gold reserves against foreign loans that were provided to the nation from international sources. So they have already trodden the path of using gold to support their international...

BULLION prices recovered most of an earlier dip lunchtime Wednesday in London, with gold trading 1.2% lower for the week so far ahead of policy-meeting minutes from the US Federal Reserve.

With recoveries come questions. Will this last? Is this just setting up a bigger decline? The current recovery in the gold stocks has been both strong and broad based. It has occurred at a time when the stock market seems vulnerable.

Without a doubt, markets are waiting for the release of minutes from the Fed's July policy meeting for clues on the timing of stimulus tapering. The U.S. central bank has said it would begin scaling back its $85 billion in monthly bond...

As we will explore in this analysis, when we look at two of the largest sources of net worth in the United States – housing and stocks – then what history shows us is that for 22 out of the 40 years between 1972 and 2012, much of the tr...

Whether the stock market is in a long-term bullish trend or a long-term bearish trend can't be determined by looking at nominal prices. The reason is that the nominal price of an investment is determined by the value of the investment AND...
