  • Things Are Lining Up Nicely For Gold And Silver
    By on July 10, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    Beginning in early Spring, gold and silver faced two serious headwinds: Seasonality – that is, the annual decline in bullion demand from China and India once wedding season ends – and the internal structure of the futures markets, where the big players in gold had lined up in ways that historic...
  • Gold Summer Doldrums 2
    By on June 14, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    Early summer is the weakest time of the year seasonally for gold, silver, and their miners’ stocks.  With traders’ attention diverted to vacations and summer fun, their precious-metals interest and investment demand wane considerably.  Thus this entire sector, and often the markets in general,...
  • Gold Hit By USDX Squeeze
    By on May 11, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold was enjoying a solid spring rally until a couple weeks ago, nearing major upside breakouts.  But its nice advance has crumbled since, really weighing on sentiment.  Gold fell victim to a rare major short squeeze in US Dollar Index futures.  The surging USDX motivated gold-futures speculators...
  • Gold Stocks’ Spring Rally 3
    By on May 3, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    The gold miners’ stocks have mostly been consolidating low this year, exacerbating bearish sentiment.  Even with gold grinding higher in a solid uptrend and nearing a major upside breakout, the gold stocks just can’t get any love.  But that may be about to change, with gold and its miners’ s...
  • Gold Nearing Bull Breakout
    By on April 26, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold remains largely forgotten, off the radars of most investors.  But that’s likely to change soon as this leading alternative investment is nearing a major bull breakout.  Once gold climbs to decisive new bull-market highs, sentiment will turn and investors’ interest will surge.  Their resu...
  • Silver Speculators Go Short – Which Is Extremely Bu...
    By on March 28, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    Friday’s commitment of traders (COT) report for gold and silver offered more of the same. Which is to say the gold futures action was boring and the silver action was strange and exciting. Starting with gold, the large speculators – who, remember, tend to be wrong at big turning points – got a...
  • Gold Upleg Breaking Out
    By on January 31, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold’s strong upleg accelerated this week, powering to major new breakout highs.  Speculators rushed to buy gold futures following surprising weak-dollar comments from the US Treasury Secretary, which hit the US dollar hard.  That boosted gold to critical technical levels that should really inte...
  • Gold Jumps To Crucial Technical Level. Important Acti...
    By on January 30, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    After what seems like a decade in the shadow of tech stocks and cryptocurrencies, gold and silver are rocking again. Which of course leaves everyone wondering if this is the beginning of the long-awaited epic run, or just a head fake preceding yet another grinding, protracted, soul-sucking decline. ...
  • GDX $25 Breakout on Earnings
    By on January 22, 2018 | No Comments  Comments
    The world’s leading gold-stock ETF is nearing a major upside breakout from key technical levels.  GDX is getting closer to challenging and powering above $25.  That would accelerate the sentiment shift in this deeply-undervalued sector back to bullish, enticing investors to return.  Good operat...
  • Stock Markets Hyper-Risky 2
    By on December 30, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The US stock markets enjoyed an extraordinary surge in 2017, shattering all kinds of records.  This was fueled by hopes for big tax cuts soon since Republicans regained control of the US government.  But such relentless rallying has catapulted complacency, euphoria, and valuations to dangerous bul...
  • Gold Stocks Coiled Spring 2
    By on December 28, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The gold miners’ stocks largely ground sideways in 2017, lagging gold’s solid rally.  Being trapped in this vexing consolidation has decimated sentiment, leaving a bearish wasteland bereft of hope.  But contrary to perceptions, this deeply-out-of-favor sector is actually a coiled spring today....
  • Silver Stocks Comatose
    By on October 31, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The silver miners’ stocks have mostly drifted sideways this year, looking vexingly comatose.  Such dull price action repels speculators and investors, so they’ve largely abandoned this lackluster sector.  That weak trader participation has led to silver stocks’ responsiveness to silver price...
  • Are Cryptocurrencies Inflationary?
    By on October 31, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    There’s a debate raging over what, exactly, bitcoin and the thousand or so other cryptocurrencies actually are. Some heavy-hitters are weighing in with strong, if not always coherent opinions: Jamie Dimon calls bitcoin a ‘fraud’ JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon did not mince words when asked abo...
  • Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Preview
    By on October 24, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    With the third quarter’s earnings season now underway, the gold miners will soon join in and report their latest results.  No data is more highly anticipated by investors, for good reason.  Quarterly reports dispel the dense fogs of herd sentiment that usually obscure gold stocks, revealing thei...
  • Rationality Versus The Market
    By on October 23, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    The late stages of financial bubbles are always tough for rational analysts. Focused as they are on the numbers, such analysts are relatively immune to the emotion that drives the action at market extremes, so they find themselves making predictions that turn out to be “wrong” for months and som...

    By on October 19, 2017 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold mining stocks have been treading water for what seems like forever. But in a remote part of Australia, a potentially big find by a tiny exploration company is generating some welcome excitement. The story in a nutshell: Back in the 1990s, Newmont Mining geologist Quinton Hennigh came up with a ...
