In this video, I’m talking about yesterday’s rally in gold, what it changed and, most importantly, what it didn’t change. Did you know that gold price declined by just $1.60 last week (0.09%)? Gold stocks (the HUI Index) declined by almost 4%! Let’s just say that the...

Without question, investing in the precious metals sector has been a pain in the ass for nearly the entire 20 years I’ve been involved. The official intervention, which has become shamelessly blatant, is the primary reason. But also, speculative capital floods into the...
The hawkish revolution continues. Powell, among the screams of monetary doves, suggested this week that tapering could be accelerated in December!
Silver continues to wind and grind its way toward a major multi-year low. The chart pattern is increasingly clear for those with the proper perspective. Unfortunately, over the short-run, silver is doing what it tends to do best: frustrate the majority of investors...
