If the final trading day for 2016 had been last Friday, Gold having settled at 1324 would be (as presently 'tis) a gain of 24.8% for the year, the fifth best annual performance of the last four decades. Yet with over four months still to...
Has anyone noticed that Gold through these "Dog Days of August" has been on a fairly tight leash, almost as if reined in by the S&P500…such that both markets from one month ago-to-date have netted at best a mild 1% increase (the S&...
A week ago we presented a graphic depiction of Gold falling $19/oz. in four seconds. Yesterday (Friday) Gold gained $7/oz. in one second, the instantaneous move from 1348 to 1355 in turn gutting the glutinous glorification of the stock...
Well Squire, going by the repeated ad nauseam "Top of the Hour" radio news post-payrolls release yesterday (Friday), 'twas nuthin' but "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!", and apparently substantively so, the euphoric reporter giddily citing material...
We've again had our annual July reminder of just how swiftly time passes, Gold's trading volume having moved from the August contract into that for December. And for those of you lucky enough to be scoring at home, did you note the amount...
As we glide through these (one might say "hardly") "...lazy hazy crazy days of summer..." --(Nat King Cole, 1963), indeed now just a week ahead of those dog days of August, ours is titled as a dual-subject missive this time 'round. As...
In last week's missive, (Gold then at $1,345), we modestly raised our high target for this year to the vaunted level dubbed as "Base Camp 1377". Now with Gold having settled yesterday (Friday) at $1,367, what was Gold's high trade this...
The more wobbly becomes the world, the more warranted becomes the ownership of Precious Metals. Dare we say: "Stop the World – I Want to Get Off" --(Bricusse/Newley, '61)...whilst taking along both Gold and Silver. Indeed Sister Silver,...
Gold gained 1% for the week. The stock market wiped out its gains for the year. Funny how freedom confronts the artificiality of financial markets' levels, gold being at half its currency debasement value and the S&P500 at double its...
Gold settled out the week on Friday at 1302. The last time gold closed above 1300 to finish a week was for that ending 15 August 2014: 1300 then felt terrible, today it feels terrific, even if but half what it "ought be" by the above...

Nearly 40 percent of all gold ever mined was recovered from South African rocks.
