The best performing precious metal for the holiday shortened week was gold, up 2.79%. According to Bloomberg, gold was steady ahead of a slew of inflation reports that may offer more clarity on when central banks will start cutting interest rates.

I like to entertain seriously views I disagree with, but it’s hard to describe a new hypothesis on the left about the United States’ economic dynamism relative to Europe’s as anything other than “cockamamie.”

First off, we've got a major breakout above 2090. I am still seeing a lot of people trying to find reasons to doubt the breakout, looking for tops around every corner. I think you need to do the opposite. I think you need to try and find reasons to be bullish and...

Vince Lanci of Echo Bay Futures & GoldFix on Substack joins us to discuss the Gold market as March & the first quarter end.

From my prior article from mid-March, Gold had broken out to the upside - but was in the midst of a smaller-degree dip, a move expected to end up as countertrend. This was the case, with the metal having broken on back to higher highs for the swing, as favored....

Welcome one and all to the 750th consecutive Saturday edition of The Gold Update.  Having missed nary a Saturday since our first missive (20 November 2009) with Gold then 1151, price since has nearly doubled (+94%), toward settling this past shortened trading week...

Well, we’re seeing another big move in the gold market. The monetary metal reached a new record high on Thursday to close out this holiday-shortened trading week. Gold finished the week, the month, and the quarter on a high note at $2,243 an ounce, gaining 3.1%...

In case you thought anybody in Washington was driving this thing, they are not. It’s official: the Department of Treasury is now issuing debt at pandemic levels. It’s worth noting the pandemic record was double the previous record, which had stood for 231 years.

Why should you have gold in your portfolio? The World Gold Council puts it this way in its recent report Gold as a Strategic Asset. "Gold has a key role as a strategic long-term investment and as a mainstay allocation in a well-diversified portfolio. Investors have...

The Easter Friday holiday has stock markets closed but there’s a key PCE inflation report scheduled for release. Gold stock blasted higher this week, likely in anticipation of a bullish report. The charts look awesome!

The gold price has just broken out to new all-time record highs. Not a single person who has ever purchased gold in the history of human civilization has ever lost money on their purchase (if they held through today).

With gold forging deeper into record territory, interest in gold stocks is mounting.  They’ve started to mean revert higher, on the way to catch up with and surpass the surging metal their profits leverage.  The timing of this gold-stock upleg is fortuitous,...
