    The history of gold mining has been well-documented for thousands of years.  And with the demand for this most precious of metals going nearly as far back as human history, miners have ventured to just about every corner of the planet in their quest to find it.  Yet unlike the miners of yore that ...

    It only took eleven years, but in 2011 global gold-mine production has finally returned to pre-bull levels.  In fact, with 2011’s volume expected to come in at around 88m ounces, we’ll see a new all-time production high.  The latest exploration-and-development cycle is finally starting to be...
  • Gold: The Technical Rundown
    By on February 7, 2012 | 247 Comments247 Comments  Comments
    Back in August of 2011 as Gold was cresting $2000 an ounce we penned a missive on our website about the pending correction of a “parabolic spike”. That played out well as prices subsequently declined to $1550 an ounce. Just recently we updated that analysis in our weekly newsletter which cov...
  • Gold ETF Mass Exodus
    By on January 30, 2012 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments
    Gold is enjoying an awesome January, rallying strongly out of its oversold late-December lows.  But last month’s hyper-pessimistic sentiment deserves some reflection before it totally fades from memory.  One of the core theses of the bears resolutely predicting sub-$1400 gold prices soon was the...
  • Dollar To Launch Gold
    By on January 17, 2012 | No Comments  Comments
    Since rocketing to new all-time highs last summer, gold has weathered a major correction.  While that selloff was healthy and necessary given the excessive optimism that catapulted gold to very-overbought levels, a strong US dollar accelerated gold’s swoon.  But with the dollar now as overbought...
  • Cheap Gold Stocks 2.
    By on January 8, 2012 | 373 Comments373 Comments  Comments
    Gold had a tough December, falling 10.5% to grind along near its worst levels since July.  This sparked hyper-bearish sentiment and end-of-gold’s-secular-bull talk.  Naturally gold stocks fared even worse in this rampant gold pessimism, with the flagship HUI gold-stock index plunging 14.7%.  Bu...

    As 2011 comes to a close, investors will reflect on one of the most tumultuous years in market history.  Though the stock markets were essentially flat on the year, those who’ve had skin in the game probably feel like they just stepped out of a barrel that went over Niagara Falls. In assessing wh...
  • Dollar Crushes Commodities.
    By on December 19, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    The long-in-the-tooth commodities correction plunged to new lows this week.  Traders were disappointed the Fed didn’t announce a new quantitative-easing campaign, so they dumped the popular commodities with a vengeance.  But realize the primary driver of the recent commodities weakness is not th...

  • HUI Bull Seasonals and Gold Stocks.
    By on November 19, 2011 | 51 Comments51 Comments  Comments
    After updating my gold-seasonality research last week, I heard from traders wondering how it affects gold stocks.  Since the price of gold is their primary driver, gold seasonality naturally has a major impact on gold-stock price levels.  This is readily apparent in the seasonality of the HUI, the...

  • Gold Resumes Its Glitter!
    By on November 17, 2011 | 41 Comments41 Comments  Comments
    Gold has been almost as volatile as the stock market since August. After becoming overheated in July and early August, it plunged $340 an ounce to its low of $1,592 in late September. In one brief period in September it collapsed $214 an ounce in just four days. Not surprisingly that cooled off the ...

    Gold has just entered its strongest time of the year, embarking on a major seasonal rally.  Naturally this is very bullish for not only this metal, but the companies that wrest it from the bowels of the Earth.  Gold’s well-established seasonality is important for speculators and investors to und...
  • Gold and the Swissie.
    By on November 8, 2011 | 36 Comments36 Comments  Comments
    Lots of things tugging on the price of gold today. For me, the most important factor was the threat of another devaluation of the Swiss Franc. The headlines from the Swiss papers: . . The last time we had headlines like this the EURCHF was 1.05. Not long after it was 1.21. So it’s not surprisin...
  • The Gold Picture In Three Time Frames.
    By on October 23, 2011 | 85 Comments85 Comments  Comments

  • Gold versus Gold Mining Stocks?.
    By on October 1, 2011 | 49 Comments49 Comments  Comments
    QUESTION:  I have read a lot of articles recently indicating gold miner stocks should go up and outpace gold. So far nothing but a drop in goldminers. Would it be possible for you to show charts of GDX and GDXJ with your comments on one of your daily posts? Thank you for a great website. (Excerpt ...
