The idea that a rising gold price is good for gold miners is intuitively easy to grasp. But to understand just how good, you have to see the numbers.

For a long time, pundits talked excitedly about the rapid, V-shaped recovery. I never shared this view, finding it too optimistic and without basis in reality. Like Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, I hate being right all the time, but it really seems that I was right...

The dramatic ascent of precious metals markets this summer reflects what could be just the start of a longer-term decline and fall in the Federal Reserve Note's value and status.

For years, gold investors watched as the Federal Reserve and central banks around the globe printed money at incredible rates.

Once dismissed by notorious investors like Warren Buffet as a “valueless” investment, gold has quickly moved to the forefront of conversation as it has become one of the best performing assets this year.

Today, social media platforms like, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok are reinforcing our individualistic narcissistic society. No wonder that despite more than 4.5 million coronavirus cases in the United States and rising, the population and their leaders are...

“Gold has no role in portfolio of wealthy clients” said the chief investment officer of Goldman Sachs’ private wealth management in the week that gold in US dollars went up by over $100 and made a new high of $1,984. Many found this statement puzzling as another...

We've been writing about this for months, but with so many generalists still pushing the opinion that gold only moves as an inverse to the U.S. dollar, it's time to write about it again. s we often do, let's start with links to past articles on this topic so that...

A current headline says “fears of currency debasement drive gold price higher”. Seems reasonable; and it is. Historically, governments have been “debasing” their currencies for centuries. The debasement leads to a loss of purchasing power in the currency in use.

I see the potential for a spike high in gold this week. The days surrounding Friday's employment report are crucial. If the dollar bottoms around 92, that could trigger a multi-week correction in gold, potentially severe.

The main theme for gold and silver investors right now is what I call the “SHO” theme; space helmets on! Simply put, as I predicted several years ago, gold (and silver) are becoming accepted as a major asset class for wealth building.Institutional money managers are...

This bull market can be more positive than the previous one both for gold and the mining stocks. In the last edition of the Fundamental Gold Report, I analyzed various WGC’s reports on the gold market. Today, I will focus on the issues of Alchemist – the flagship...

Nothing lasts forever, and the brightest flame burns itself out the fastest. That could very well apply to the current situation around PMs. Speaking of indications pointing to the situation being excessive, let’s take a look at the USD Index.

The gold hype is impossible to miss as its steep rise brought it above the 2011 all-time highs. But is the picture seen in precious metals one of universal strength? That, and the USD Index prospects, is what we'll examine in today's article.

There is a now widespread universally held belief, especially amongst “dumb money” market participants, that the markets cannot drop because the Fed is going to keep creating money in ever greater quantities to throw at pumping them higher and higher.

SPX looks ready to complete the structure that it started building from 2965. Some time around the middle of the month would be a good time for completion before a retracement into the cycle lows.

Last week's trading once again saw gold forming its low in Monday's session, here doing so with the tag of the 1918.30 figure (December, 2020 contract). From there, strength was seen into late-week, with the metal pushing all the way up to a Friday peak of 2004.50...

I would like to thank a few of my teachers from long ago, who enticed me to learn about the Precious Metals Sector, and charting.  I found the old Gold-Eagle Forum at Gold-Eagle.com where Dr. Vronsky ran a tight ship.

The Dow Jones continues in an annoyingly tedious manner, where it refuses to go up or down as it hugs on to its BEV -10% line for dear life in the BEV chart below.  It’s been this way for over a month.  So we continue watching the Dow Jones’ BEV -5% and -15% lines,...

On the off chance that you missed yesterday's (Friday's) Prescient Commentary, here is its opening sentence: "Front month (Dec) Gold has topped 2000 for the 1st time ever, price at present 1993", Gold settling out the week at 1994, but not before having made another...

Our proprietary cycle indicator is now down. Gold sector remains on long-term buy at the end of July. 

July 31, 2020

Before I begin this weekly missive (which is being penned on a Wednesday due to my impending cruise to the northern habitats of Georgian Bay), I need to present one quote that for me summarizes everything there is to know about risk management in the capital markets...

Here are today's videos and charts. The videos are viewable on mobile phones as well as computers

As July comes to a close, the gold price is up better than 9% for the month and has advanced nearly 30% for the year.

Our hard working miner here (we’ll call him Huey) has been pushing his cart of rocks, first gently downhill from 2016 to 2018 and then uphill to a bull market since May 2019.

The gold miners’ stocks have rocketed higher this summer, smashing out of their usual summer-doldrums sideways grind. That atypical strength has been driven by gold steadily marching to major new secular highs, fueled by strong investment demand. This has carried...

The Euro Crisis Monitor (above) shows the increasing imbalances in the TARGET2 settlement system between all its members: the ECB (itself with a €145bn deficit) and the national central banks in the Eurozone. Other than minor differences reflecting net cross-border...

July 30, 2020

Yesterday’s session was indeed volatile around the FOMC, just like warned in our gold timing alerts,  and gold even moved to its previous high, likely forming a double-top pattern. Even though gold moved higher on an intraday basis, it didn’t invalidate its previous...

No matter what shape the recovery is, the epidemic will likely have lasting, positive effects on the gold market. During the most acute phase of the pandemic and the following economic crisis, there was no time to analyze various WGC’s reports on the gold market....
