This week the Dow Jones lifted up a bit from its BEV -15% line, closing with a BEV of -12.63%.  What exactly does that mean?  In a BEV plot, all new all-time highs are reduced to a 0.00%, and never more at the Red BEV Zero (0.0%) line.  Any daily closing in the BEV...
An optionality play is a company that has a large amount of gold/silver in the ground that has never been developed into a mine. Ideally, you want to find large deposits that are highly undervalued compared to a company’s FD (fully diluted) market cap.

Mme. Lagarde & Co. just kicked the Buck in its butt, in turn giving Gold a bit of a  bid, but -- as Mark Twain might have penned -- "'Twarn't really much".  Gold settled out the week yesterday (Friday) at 1728, a price which has now  traded within six of the past...

Our SGJ newsletter portfolios are looking good.  We are loaded with cash (70% and more, in all our portfolios going into the current decline).  We're ready to deploy it now.  With the ECB turning “hawk”, the euro, gold, and silver are ready to soar!  The junior miners...
Gold continues to languish near major lows after a rough summer, deeply out of favor with traders.  Oddly this leading alternative investment seems oblivious to the first inflation super-spike since the 1970s.  That should be driving big gold demand, fueling a major...
Economic contraction is unfolding – but how painful will it be? The deeper the recession, the better for gold. Let’s make it clear: an economic downturn is coming. We are already in a technical recession (GDP contracted in the first two quarters of this year), despite...
Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) was the “Mumble Rap” of politics and economics in the late 2010s. The theory was incoherent, unsubstantial, and––before the pandemic, you could not avoid it if you wanted to.
