What a crazy six months! Let’s look at the chart below. As you can see, over the first half of the year, gold gained more than 16 percent, rising from $1,515 at the end of December 2019 to $1,762 at the end of June 2020.

Initial jobless claims are declining painfully slowly. The disconnect between the choppy recovery and financial markets creates upward risk for gold.

The gold futures contract lost 1.14% on Wednesday after reaching new long-term high of $1,807.70. The market has retraced its Tuesday’s advance following intraday reversal and a breakdown below $1,800 mark. The recent economic data releases didn’t bring any new...

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.

As third quarter trading kicks off following a tumultuous first half of the year, investors are hoping for an auspicious July.

Gold is at a critical juncture. Prices could top or breakout within the next 48-hours. Our cycle work favors a top. This week’s employment data could trigger a breakout in gold above $1800 or force an intermediate top. Expect increased volatility over the next 2-...

Gold just closed the month and quarter and its performance on the final day of both was very encouraging for the bulls. What’s going on and what changed?

Gold is the top performing asset in the world in the first half of 2020, outperforming all stock markets including the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq and outperforming “safe haven” U.S. government bonds (see table above).

Some gold bulls have bought in heavily to the argument that gold price suppression has been an ongoing activity for years, even decades. Supposedly, trading in the gold market is manipulated in ways that depress the market price for gold.

Gold has broken out from a two-month-long consolidation (from $1680 to $1770), but the other precious metals markets have not confirmed gold's strength.

Investors ignore cycles… at their peril.  When I calmly suggested that a key virus cycle year of 2020 would see a “carpet bombing” of markets, most investors were not listening to the cyclical message of the markets.

The general market reliance on the Fed is not only what is driving many investor’s decisions of late, but it will likely reach its peak in the coming years. But, one is going to have be very careful before they buy into this fallacy too deeply.

We all fear the second wave of infections. But the U.S. hasn’t even controlled the first one! Bad news for Americans, but good news for gold.

The gold futures contract gained 0.05% on Monday, as it extended its short-term consolidation along last Wednesday’s new yearly high of $1,796.10. The market continued its long-term uptrend last week. The recent economic data releases didn’t bring any new surprises...

We start this week's commentary with some rather depressing news from Reuters: The ratio of downgrades to upgrades in the credit ratings of leveraged loans has spiked to a record level, five times above that hit during the last global financial crisis, reflecting...

We will start this update by looking at gold’s price measured against various important currencies. These long-term charts quickly make clear that gold is in a major bullmarket, which is another way of saying that these currencies are losing purchasing power.

The gold futures contract gained 0.55% on Friday, as it continued to trade along Wednesday’s new yearly high of $1,796.10. The market has extended its long-term uptrend last week. The recent economic data releases didn’t bring any new surprises for the financial...

As I sit here on a Thursday evening, contemplating the logic behind my most recent additions to a highly-tentative short position on the SPY:US (the ETF tracking the S&P 500), I am doing everything in my power to not take my quote machine and project it into the...

The Federal Reserve has printed trillions of dollars without generating runaway price inflation through the use of a neat trick.

The second wave of Covid-19 is here and while it makes gold’s potential even better in the long run, it’s likely to mean a sharp decline beforehand.

Gold closed last week at US$1,770 almost US$20 higher than at the closing price on June 19th. The bulls not only pushed prices to a new eight-year high at US$1,780 but have once again responded with great strength to a bearish attack on Friday. Every dip, no matter...

Small amounts of natural gold were found in Spanish caves used by the Paleolithic Man about 40,000 B.C.
