Last week's trading saw gold registering the more bearish pattern of an early-week high into resistance, with the metal hitting a peak of 1788.80 - made on a Tuesday time top. From there, a sharp decline was seen into later in the week, here dropping all the way...

The best, brightest -- and moreover duly accomplished -- Gold analysts these past few weeks quite understandably have been in full throat calling for "Gold 2000 by the end of April!" or "Gold 2500 by June!" So much so have they put Gold on "Go!" that joining their...

Here’s a blast from the past: "The Fed could support the stock market directly by buying market averages in the futures market, thus stabilizing the market as a whole. --- The stock market is certainly not too big for the Fed to handle." - Robert Heller, former...
