Mark Mead Baillie Articles

Gold's combined gains for the past two weeks (+10.8%), and for the past three weeks (+12.8%), and for the past four weeks (+13.8%) are the largest percentage winners since the week ending 19 August 2011, after which price proceeded upward...
Let's begin with the below graphic from the 26 December edition of The Gold Update (which was queried "Gold to Ascend into Year's End?"). Having alluded to this picture a week ago, we now deem it worthy of being re-presented and updated...
Four trading weeks of the new year are now officially in the books, and as much as Gold may feel lackluster to many of you, 'tis had but one losing week of the four. Indeed from the year's low (1061) to its high (1128) is a 6% pop in price...
We start with this from the "Honesty is the Best Policy Dept.", for whilst markets all 'round are lurching about, does Gold not seem a bit docile throughout? Pro-Gold as we are, 'tis dutiful for us to point out that price -- as regularly...
With respect to our declared targets this year for Gold (upper 1200s) and the S&P500 (lower 1400s), both markets are directionally off on the right foot through these first two trading weeks of 2016. Given the Media Melodrama over the...

'Tis quite the question, that title, with but four trading days in the balance for 2015. Of late, Gold is giving -- the appearance anyway -- of at least basing for year's end into which we are racing. To say nothing of the fact 'tis been...
Whilst preparing to "leave the building" as is our wont on FedDays, several hours prior to Wednesday's dastardly deed performed by the FOMC, I enjoyed a brief exchange of emails with a valued colleague up in Montréal, who bemoaned the...
Query: Come this Wednesday, 16 December, shall the Policy Statement from the Federal Open Market Committee confirm their having voted to nick the Federal Reserve Bank's overnight lending rate from 0.25% up a notch to 0.50%?
The volume of all the gold ever mined can occupy a cube 63 feet on each side.
