Brexit came as a shock to the political bureaucracy that comprises the European Union. They had, and still have an ostrich-like stance with their heads in the sand and their rear ends exposed to passing dangers. Their economic incompetence has been exposed for all...

On March 3, 2020, the US Fed issued an emergency rate cut of 0.50% to move rates to levels near 1.0% as a result of global economic concerns related to the spread of the Coronavirus and the potential damage it may do to the global major economies.  President Trump...

This is it! The party is over. The world is now facing the gravest economic and social downturn in Modern Times (18th century). We are now entering a period of global crisis that will change the world for a very long time to come. This should come as no surprise to...

A few of my subscribers asked me recently about the lethargic action in the miners lately given that the price of gold has started moving higher again. But it helps to step back and look at a longer time-frame. For the last 52 seeks, the HUI has significantly...

Stocks opened up on a bullish note yesterday, but the bulls gave up all of their gains and then some. This has happened despite the Fed’s surprise rate cut that intended to calm the markets. As stocks closed the day back below the key support, where does that leave...

Yesterday, the Fed cut interest rates by 50 basis points. Not during a regular monetary policy meeting, but in a surprising move. But what are the implications for the gold market specifically? Last week, I wrote that the spread of the new coronavirus to Europe and...

Most people assume that the central bank prints money when it buys bonds. They further assume that this increase in the quantity of money causes an increase in the general price level. And, this leads them to assume that the value of the money is 1 / P (P is the...

The Fed injected a record amount of liquidity this morning via its Repo Market Operation to supply dealers in the interbank market.  While investors may be reassured by the huge 1293 point rally on the Dow yesterday, the global contagion and its impact are just...

The gold futures contract gained 3.11% on Tuesday, as it retraced Friday’s sell-off after surprising Fed’s interest rate cut at 10:00 a.m. On Friday the price collapsed to $1,564.00 level, despite the ongoing corona virus scare. The recent short-term voatility...

The end of February was brutal for traders that were not prepared for the breakdown in the US stock markets.  The breakdown in price actually started on February 20th and 21st.  Most traders didn't pay attention to these minor downside price rotations in the...

​“He will lose the election, that’s for sure…Ford lost to Carter after the 1973 oil shock, Carter lost to Reagan due to the second oil crisis in 1979, and Bush lost to Clinton after the Kuwait invasion. The Democratic field is poor, but Trump is dead.” – Legendary...

This weekend, newsletter writers the world over are scrambling to explain to their paid subscribers why they are now showing losses in portfolios that were supposed to be showing gains, and especially because it was only two weeks ago that the S&P 500 hit all-...

The gold futures contract gained 1.79% on Monday, as it retraced some of the Friday’s big sell-off. On Friday the price collapsed to $1,564.00 level, despite the ongoing corona virus scare. The recent short-term volatility marked a topping pattern before that sell-...

There are indicators, and there is price action. Some technicians swear by one or the other, yet it’s most sensible to combine both views as they go hand in hand. Further, there is a special breed of indicators that are not a derivative of price, and the chief among...
