Through the turn of the twentieth century, one of the so-called "common coins" here in Monaco was the 100 Franc Gold piece depicting the image of then Prince Albert Honoré Charles Grimaldi. Albert I was not as nearly beloved by his...
There's something wonderful about waxing eloquent (or otherwise) upon Gold whilst writing from Zürich. Here in the largest of Swiss cities, vibrant as 'tis, one is reminded of common sense, logic and coordination, and revels in witnessing...
Greetings from the beautifully bucolic Swiss canton of Fribourg where, like Gold, the cows barely budge toward otherwise producing their gruyérienne delights.
To open on a "yours truly" note, there was Switzerland long before Monaco entered our lives. 'Tis just that the latter's climate, locale and cosmopolitan culture supplanted for us that of the former's stoicity, moreover near-reverent...
For now nine weeks running, Gold's weekly settle has neither exceeded 1191 on the downside, nor 1223 on the upside: that is a week-to-week closing range for two months spanning just 2.7% from low-to-high, or a mere 32 points. Think back to...

Our subject is Gold, but briefly let's start with stocks as they're breaking the mold. The S&P 500 marginally broke its all-time closing high yesterday (Friday) in settling at 2874.69: that is 1.82 points higher than the previous such...
So much for the "immovable object", eh? Oh, the yellow metal finally got off its butt alright: but without noticing that a dastardly team of Shorts had snuck in this past week and tied together gold's shoelaces such that it fell flat on...
