While the statistics scream, investors, often blinded by emotions, do not hear them. However, since history seems to rhyme, what do gold, silver, and mining stocks have in store for us?
In today's video I want to take a look at where my predictions for '22 and how those turned out, and what I think is probably in play for '23. At the beginning of the year I told all my subscribers I think it's going to be a difficult year to make any sustainable gains...

It’s been a decent year for big league assets like the Dow, the dollar, and for the greatest asset of all, which of course is gold.
Can gold's recent short-term rally be considered bullish, or can we expect a decline like in 2008? Is Silver Really Strong? Gold and silver are moving higher today, but nothing really changed despite that. Silver moved to its previous highs, while gold didn’t
In an economy that over decades has grown increasingly dependent on revved-up holiday sales, investors have responded by praying more fervently each year for a Santa rally. It’s an odd metaphor, however, considering that Wall Street even at its seasonal cheeriest has a...

Long-time readers of The Gold Update know that we don't overly dwell on that produced by our very respected great and good fellow precious metals' colleagues for but one reason: we simply desire our attention span (such as 'tis or 'tisn't) to be focused upon what we...
Investors got some superficially good news on the economy this week. But it turned out to be bad news for markets. Equities and precious metals markets sold off on Thursday following government data showing that the economy grew faster than expected in the third...
Technical analyst Gareth Soloway joins the show to discuss the latest breakouts on the Silver and Gold markets and what we could expect for the first quarter of 2023. Furthermore, we talk bout the unenviable Fed's pivot, and the similarities between the S&P500...
Throughout 2022 there's been a theme of protecting assets against geopolitical risk. Central banks have been buying gold at a record pace, while others have been repatriating their gold holdings to keep them safe from jurisdictional risk. A risk that took on new...
I'm going to look at the miners today so I warned people back here at the beginning of the month that that miners were probably going to be stuck in a sideways churn for a while, they had a huge move, this was like a 30 plus percent move, in a very short period of time.

Here are today's videos and charts. The videos are viewable on mobile phones as well as computers.
Gold has been powering higher on balance for a couple months now, surging to major breakouts.  That upside momentum is improving sentiment, with traders growing more bullish on gold’s potential.  That is well-placed, as this upleg remains young.  Major gold uplegs are...
In 2022 the gold price has started to validate our projection from last December, and 2023 should see a bull move in gold miners emerge for all to see (and one day chase due to FOMO)
