2020 was an interesting year, to say the least. One aspect of the markets that is not mentioned in the mainstream media is that gold turned in its best year since 2010. Skepticism with regard to the durability of the rally in gold and silver imposed restraint on the...
The weakness in the gold market continued last week. As the chart below shows, the London P.M. Fix declined below $1,840 last Friday (the price of the yellow metal later declined even further, i.e., below $1,830).

During my holiday break the Dow Jones continued advancing. Not as if it were on fire, but it did make six new BEV Zeros in the BEV chart below, and remained within 1% of one every day since December 18th.
Gold was sheared this past week by -1.2% and is now -3.9% year-to-date. Silver was smeared this past week by -2.6% and is now -6.4% year-to-date. But relax: have a cracker 'n schmear, perhaps even a beer, and we'll try to relate to make it all clear.

The $4.5 trillion increase in the U.S. national debt in 2020 was so large as to be almost incomprehensible for the average person. Yet, every dollar of the new debt was entirely real. It will likely be with us for the rest of our lifetimes, and may profoundly change...

Today is a prime example of why it was necessary to use tight stops on gold and silver. Preservation of capital is crucial. The odds were against eight consecutive years of the precious metals having a strong continuous run in January/February. The initial Sequential 7...
Hurray! The disastrous year of 2020, which brought about the COVID-19 pandemic , the Great Lockdown , and the economic crisis , is over! Now, the question is what will 2021 be like – both for the U.S. economy and the gold market.

Now that the US has elected a new president who will appoint a new administration, we must forget recent political events and focus on future economic and monetary policies. It is a statement of the obvious that President-elect Biden and his new Treasury Secretary will...
