Signs that SPX is ready to correct are increasing. The first cycle to make its low could only take it down 45 points before it rebounded to a fractional new all-time high of 3399.96. The next cycle is ready to trigger the next correction which should be deeper.

Last week's trading saw gold forming its high in early-week trading, here doing so with the tag of the 2024.60 figure. From there, a decline was seen into early-Friday, with the metal dropping down to a low of 1916.60 - before bouncing off the same into the daily/...

As was described last week, events in April 2013 and again in March this year and now again, for a third time, show that when the Cartel gets really desperate, they pull out all the stops in their self-preservation.

Charlie Munger called Warren Buffett a “jerk”; really? Well, Mr. Buffett recently did take a big position in Barrick Gold.

Our article suspecting a potential spike-high in gold was timely, and prices peaked 3-days later. The decline into the 6-month is now underway, and long-term investors may want to consider buying near the 200-day MA. Our work expects a tradable bottom in September...

I was sitting with my partner on the porch this evening watching the squirrels and chipmunks and cardinals and blue jays all feasting upon a smorgasbord of sunflower and other assorted seeds amidst a conflagration of floral colours exploding in our front garden.

The mid-tier gold miners in this sector’s sweet spot for upside potential have had a spectacular run since March’s stock panic!  That catapulted them to extremely-overbought levels, necessitating a correction to rebalance sentiment.  The mid-tiers’ just-reported Q2’...

In a response to the coronavirus crisis, the Fed has already cut interest rates to zero and implemented quantitative easing. But that’s not enough and the U.S. central bankers are now talking about “yield curve control”. What is it and how it could affect the gold...

Research Highlights: With Gold trading above $2,000 for the first time and Silver trading near $27.50, you need to understand the risks in the markets that precious metals are warning of. If Gold breaks above $2,400, then there is a very real concern that the global...

Just because prices have been rallying, the market generalists and their sycophant media have been pushing the idea that gold and silver are somehow in a "speculative bubble". However, even just a quick, basic review of the COMEX market internals reveals that this...

CPI rises again in July. But will the inflation dragon take to the air, taking gold with it? The U.S. CPI inflation rate rose 0.6 percent in July, for the second month in a row. The move was driven to a large extent by higher energy prices (the energy index...
