Misfortune for the stock market is well overdue to ensue, with respect to Gold, calamity is descriptively apropos following the second consecutive daily record high of 2152 achieved this past Monday (04 December) … following which it all...
And so for Gold, as the expression goes, “Santa came early this year.”  In settling the week yesterday (Friday) at 2092, February Gold (the current “front month”) en route traded to as high as 2096, +7 points above the prior “front month”...
Greetings from under the Tuscan sun.  Here in Cortona, recorded history dates all the way back to the Etruscans in the 8th century BC, (which for you WestPalmBeachers down there is some 2,900 years ago).  And in those days, Gold was...

Across the past 23 trading days (from 20 September) Gold traded per that date’s high of 1969 down -145 points (-7.4%) to 1824 (on 06 October) from which price then ascended +185 points (+10.1%) through yesterday (Friday) to as high as 2009...
Now before we all get too excited out there about Gold having yesterday (Friday) posted its largest one-day net gain since 17 March by both percentage +3.4% and points +64, let us acknowledge that price is right where ’twas a mere 14...
“Well ya know, Gold is down because of Dollar strength…” Oh good grief are we sick of hearing that.  Honest to Pete, knee-jerk “conventional wisdom” is hardly our investing indicator of choice, especially when it comes to owning Gold,...
