What we previously wrote about mining stocks’ breakdown and yesterday’s upswing, might seem like something that invalidates it or something that’s just nonsense. In reality, it’s one of the common patterns that we see after breakdowns – the price comes back to the...

One of our colleagues recently wrote an open letter to Ted Butler. The point was that Monetary Metals gold leasing is a different kind of activity than what is called “gold leasing” in the institutional bullion market. We make it possible for gold owners to lease...

Last week's trading saw gold forming its bottom in Monday's session, here doing so with the tag of the 1781.20 figure. From there, a rally was seen into a mid-week high, with the metal pushing all the way up to a peak of 1829.80 - before backing off the same into...

Trying to assess the potential for a correction in precious metals (and in miners especially) is quite tricky, given the current context. Last week we argued that markets often make powerful and sustained upside advances following significant breakouts. In this...

The Fed has blown the current stock bubble to an unprecedented magnitude. While the most outrageous overvaluations are concentrated in the tech sector, the valuation insanity has engulfed the entire stock market. Bubble chasers ran Hertz, a bankrupt company that...

Acknowledging Eric Hadik’s analysis that the 40-week cycle is in an inverted mode appears to be the correct step to take.  We do not yet know how much weakness will come into the market after the inversion, but a clear warning that a significant correction may be...

Having only just returned from the majesty of Georgian Bay, where the first fishing derby of the season had me summarily trounced by my female partner 12-5 with most of her catches in the 1-2 pound category with mine barely larger than the lure that attracted them...

Gold's settling yesterday (Friday) at 1802 puts price within 100 points of the All-Time Closing High of 1900 as established back on 22 August 2011. As fervour builds to break that record, 'tis a good time toward maintaining perspective for another round of "Facts,...
