The gold miners’ stocks are blasting higher, just achieving major new secular highs!  Traders are flocking back to gold stocks as the metal they produce relentlessly advances on strong investment demand.  That is atypical during market summers, but the pandemic has...

Our research team believes the recent base in Gold, near $1720 to $1740 is setting up just like the 2005 to 2007 peak in the US stock markets – just before the Credit Crisis hit in 2008.  We believe the similarities of the current and past events, in price and in technical/fundamental data, are strangely similar.

Sometimes when we observe people on the streets, when we see crowded restaurants and pubs, it seems like the pandemic has ended. But is the global epidemic really over? Not at all. Please look at the chart below. As one can see, the daily number of confirmed cases...

Boris Johnson recently compared his reconstruction plan with Franklin D Roosevelt’s New Deal. Such is the myth of FDR and his new deal that even libertarian Boris now invokes them. Unless he is just being political, he shows he knows little about the economic...

The monetary “gods” at the Federal Reserve have created the perfect monetary policy recipe to fuel gold, silver and mining stocks to new all-time highs and beyond. While the bubbleheads in the financial media have been garishly cheerleading the general stock market...

Today, both silver and gold broke above important technical levels.  The gold price hasn’t been this high since September 2011 when it peaked at $1,923 during that month.  Silver finally pushed through the critical $18.50 level and closed at $19.16, according to...

We started yesterday’s Gold & Silver Trading Alert with the Gold Miners Bullish Percent Index, and we’ll start today’s analysis in the same way. We’ll do so, because we received a question about whether gold miners stayed overbought for a long time, while they...

The U.S. is still knee-deep in the first wave of Covid-19. So, gold should be still knee-deep in the bullish wave. “Really not good.” This is how Anthony Fauci, the U.S. leading infectious disease expert and the member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force,...

Most everyone you know is a member of a cult. It’s not their fault, and they didn’t consciously seek it out, but your friends and family and almost everyone you know and even come in contact with belong to a system that has brainwashed them.

Is everyone familiar with the bet between Julian Simon and Paul Ehrlich? Ehrlich wrote a book titled The Population Bomb. He held a pessimistic view of the future, in which population growth would outstrip resources (essentially the same as Thomas Malthus).

For as long as I can remember, I've stated that negative nominal and negative real interest rates are the key, primary driver for higher gold prices. And now we're seeing this play out in real time.

Last week, the FOMC has published minutes of its meeting from June 9-10. They show a few interesting things. First of all, although the Fed officials could be satisfied with their monetary policy stance, they want to communicate better to the markets their...
