Gold has just broken out to a new all-time high, eclipsing the former peak of $1,920 set on September 6, 2011. As this article is going to press, gold is trading at $1,983 in the worldwide spot market.

Back in early February of 2020, I warned those willing to listen that “Emerging Markets Look Sick,” which was actually the title of my article. In fact, when I posted this article in early February, I was looking for a bounce off the 42 support region in EEM, with a...

Gold’s slight correction of 3.99% this week doesn’t say much. But the $170/oz. decline in about 24 hours certainly did get my attention. And I have to wonder if the 22-basis point rise in the 30-year U.S. Treasury may not have played a role. While 22 basis points...

Everything good comes to its end sooner or later, and no ascent lasts forever as Icarus would confirm. That could very well apply to the current situation around PMs. Speaking of indications pointing to the situation being excessive, let’s take a look at the USD...

SPX is on the verge of a correction for the reasons given above.  Afterwards, it should be ready to make another all-time high, perhaps by a good margin.  At least, this is what various methodologies suggest.  Primary among these is the view of EWT technicians who...

Last week's trading saw gold market continuing to remain weaker, with the metal dropping all the way down to a Wednesday low of 1874.20 - before giving way to a decent bounce into Friday's session.

This week the Dow Jones closed at a new high for the move, from its -38% bottom of last March.  At week’s end, it has fallen short of breaking above its BEV -5% line.  So, the Dow Jones isn’t in scoring position just yet, but maybe that’s what next week is all about...

"Shorting Gold is a bad idea." --[mmb, 2009-to-date] To be sure, that remains a favourite quip of ours over these many years of producing The Gold Update. Not that the Shorts didn't have their run from 06 September 2011's high of 1923.7 down to 03 December 2015's...

The spike-high we forecasted in gold last week appears complete. Prices collapsed to $1874.20 by Wednesday before finally rebounding. We think gold could retest support near $1700 by late September, which should produce the next great buying opportunity. 

As the federal government continues to bailout the economy and markets by creating trillions of unbacked pieces of paper and electronic digits, a handful of Congressmen hope to shine a new spotlight on the devastating effects of this runaway financial profligacy.

The major gold miners’ stocks have skyrocketed since mid-March’s stock panic, attracting in a deluge of new capital inflows. That recently catapulted this normally-contrarian sector to extremely-overbought levels, necessitating a rebalancing correction. The gold...

The U.S. imported a record amount of gold bullion in April during the global contagion and shutdown of many economies.  The United States imported more gold in April than it did during all of last year.  A lot of the gold imported into the U.S. was due to delivery...

The disruptions caused by the pandemic of Covid-19 forced people, companies, governments, and organizations to challenge their basis assumptions about their ways of life and conduct. Some of them might be trivial such as more frequent and thorough hand-washing, but...

Downturns in bank credit expansion always lead to systemic problems. We are on the edge of such a downturn, which thanks to everyone’s focus on the coronavirus, is unexpected.

On August 7, gold in US$ notched its all-time nominal high of $2,089 (It's been printing new highs in many other currencies for quite awhile now.) Silver peaked (so far) at $29.92. After a few days of attempting to scale $30, it gave up the ghost and dropped a...

Tuesday was hot!  And I don’t mean the weather. I mean that it was a remarkable day for the precious metals. The price of gold plunged more than $100 two days ago and it even dove below the key $1,900 level at one point on Wednesday. As the chart below shows, the...

Measured by the common man, we’re on the road to ruin. The US has been in decline for decades, but you can’t see that by looking at stocks. You can’t tell it from those who lie about the economy to make their living, but look at long-term real numbers, and you see...

Gold is at a point where most of the horrific Corona crisis news is priced in, the US economy continues to strengthen, and not enough government handout money has been spent by Main Street to create inflation.

The triumph of the gold bulls has finally come, as gold jumped above $2,000. But what’s next for the shiny metal?

August 10, 2020

The near-term trends in precious metals reached extremes - a temporary top is becoming likely. A daily close below $2000 in gold would confirm a spike-high top and beginning of a 1 to 2-month correction.
