  • Gold-Futures Shorting Attacks
    By on May 14, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold has suffered a sharp pullback over the past couple weeks, stoking much bearish sentiment.  While a variety of factors fed this selloff, the precipitating catalyst was a gold-futures shorting attack.  These are relatively-rare episodes of extreme selling specifically timed and executed to mani...
  • Misunderstanding GDXJ: Why It’s Actually Great News...

    Something extraordinarily good for junior precious metals miners just happened. But for some reason it’s being misinterpreted as a bad thing. Here’s the general story: A Small-Cap Gold Mining ETF Streaks Lower As Big Index Change Looms (Investors.com) – Mining stocks blazed a bright trail of ...
  • Gold Upleg Momentum Building
    By on April 28, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold’s young upleg just enjoyed a major upside breakout, bolstering strong technicals and heralding a coming Golden Cross buy signal.  Investors have started aggressively buying gold again after record-high stock markets distracted them.  This gold upleg’s upside momentum is really building, p...
  • Gold-Stock-Bull Upside Targets
    By on April 26, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The get-no-respect gold-stock sector is in a strong young bull market.  Past gold-stock bulls have grown to utterly-massive proportions before giving up their ghosts, greatly multiplying the wealth of contrarian investors and speculators.  Today’s gold-stock bull is very likely to grow vastly la...
  • Gold-Stock Breakouts Near
    By on April 19, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The gold-mining stocks’ usual volatility has proven outsized so far this year, spooking investors.  A fast initial surge in a new upleg was soon fully reversed by a sharp major correction, which spawned much bearish sentiment.  That combined with the great distraction from the Trumphoria stock-m...
  • Gold in Fed-Rate-Hike Cycles 2
    By on April 11, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold suffered heavy selling in early March leading into the Fed’s latest rate hike.  Speculators frantically dumped gold futures ahead of the Fed’s meeting as implied rate-hike odds soared.  This is nothing new.  This key group of traders has long feared Fed-rate-hike cycles, convinced they a...
  • Gold Stocks’ Spring Rally 2
    By on March 4, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The gold stocks enjoyed a strong surge early this year, fully reversing their sharp post-election losses.  While they spent much of February consolidating before sliding, this sector’s seasonals will soon turn very favorable again in mid-March.  The gold miners have long enjoyed strong spring ra...
  • Gold-Futures Buying Yet to Start!
    By on February 26, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold has powered higher in a strong new upleg since the Fed’s mid-December rate hike.  But the core group of traders who usually fuel early-upleg gains has been missing in action in recent months.  The gold-futures speculators have not done any meaningful buying since gold bottomed.  This anoma...
  • Gold-Stock Volume Divergence
    By on February 18, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The gold miners’ stocks have blasted higher in this young new year, far outpacing the broader markets.  But surprisingly gold stocks’ trading volume has diverged from their powerful rally.  Volume has actually been waning on balance since gold stocks’ newest upleg was born in mid-December. ...
  • Is This What They Mean By “Crack-Up Boom”?
    By on February 17, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    In 1980, the US government – along with pretty much all of its peers – began borrowing at an accelerating rate. Note on the following chart how the trend line steepened in the 2000s and then steepened again in this decade, with a sudden and unexpected pop in 2015 and early 2016, even as the curr...
  • Gold Stocks’ Strong New Upleg
    By on February 12, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold stocks are on fire this year, powering higher in market-dominating performance.  This is a massive reversal from their dark fourth quarter, with 6/7ths of those losses already erased.  But this strong new upleg still remains young and small by historical standards.  Gold stocks’ recent ral...
  • Silver Stocks’ New Upleg
    By on January 29, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The silver miners’ stocks have surged higher in this young new year, putting the Trumphoria general-stock rally to shame.  Following its fourth-quarter drubbing, this tiny contrarian sector is embarking on a major new upleg as traders return.  Silver-stock uplegs tend to grow to massive proporti...
  • This Pension Thing Is About To Get Real
    By on January 26, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    “The problem with police officers and firefighters isn’t a public-sector problem; it isn’t a problem with government; it’s a problem with the entire society. It’s what happened on Wall Street in the run-up to the subprime crisis. It’s a problem of people taking what they can, just becaus...
  • Gold Futures Looking Bullish
    By on January 22, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold has rebounded sharply higher in the past month, taking the early lead as 2017’s best-performing asset class.  Normally such a big gold surge would require heavy gold-futures buying by speculators.  But they’ve been missing in action, barely moving any capital into gold yet.  Their collec...
  • Big Gold Buying Coming
    By on January 14, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold has hit the ground running in this young new year, a stark contrast to its brutal post-election selloff.  Rather remarkably, these strong recent gains accrued despite literally zero buying from one of gold’s most-important constituencies.  The American stock investors who almost single-hand...
  • Gold: Getting There A Little At A Time
    By on January 11, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    One of life’s hardest-to-learn but most necessary lessons is that things usually take a lot longer to work out than you’d like them to. That’s where the sayings “Being too early is the same as being wrong” and “The market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent” come from....
