  • Going for Mexican Gold
    By on March 3, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Mexico’s massive precious-metals belts are some of the world’s finest.  As global #1 in silver production they are obviously quite well known for the shiny-white metal.  But these belts have also been flexing their gold muscles recently, placing Mexico among the world’s top-10 producers. Mex...
  • Gold and Fed Rate Hikes
    By on February 23, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold’s sharp early-year surge has fizzled in recent weeks as investment demand faded.  The primary reason is the universal belief that the Fed’s upcoming rate hikes are very bearish for gold.  Higher rates will make zero-yielding gold relatively less attractive, argues this popular thesis.  B...
  • Is Gold Pullback Another Buying Opportunity?
    By on February 17, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    There are reasons in the technical charts, in the fundamentals, and in investor sentiment, to believe gold is ready for at least a tradable bear market rally. In a January column, I noted that gold plunged 48% from its record high above $1,900 an ounce in 2011, to its low late last year, and was one...
  • Gold-Stock Volume Growing
    By on February 17, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    There’s no doubt the gold-mining stocks remain deeply out of favor, collateral damage from the Fed’s gross financial-market distortions of recent years.  But sentiment is shifting, with stock traders starting to regain interest in this left-for-dead sector.  Gold-stock trading volume is really...
  • This Is What It Means To Lose A Currency War
    By on February 1, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    The term gets tossed around a lot, but the meaning and consequences of a “currency war” aren’t intuitively clear to most people. Especially confusing is the idea that you lose the war when your currency goes up. The suddenly very strong dollar, for instance, should, one would think, be a good...

    The following notes are from the Sector Analysis section of the weekly e-letter I publish each week. While I generally cover the major market indices and individual sectors of the S&P 500, I thought I would share with you a few things that have caught my attention as of late. If you have any que...

    By on January 25, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Today the European Central Bank acknowledged that the currency it manages is being sucked into a deflationary vortex. It responded in the usual way with, in effect, a massive devaluation. Eurozone citizens have also responded predictably, by converting their unbacked, make-believe, soon-to-be-worth-...
  • Stock Traders Flock to Gold
    By on January 24, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold surged this week on massive buying from stock investors and speculators.  This critical group of traders and their vast pools of capital utterly abandoned gold in the past couple years.  So to see them start to flock back is a watershed event, heralding a major reversal in gold’s fortunes....
  • Can You Just Surrender In A Currency War?
    By on January 21, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Switzerland, as everyone knows by now, has slipped out the back door of the drunken orgy that is the modern financial system. And the other revelers are wondering if it’s time to find their own clothes and start tiptoeing towards the exit. Because the Swiss have such a big “mind share” in the ...

    Last month I penned an article titled, “Implications for the Stock Market and Gold with a Yen Rally” in which I laid out the case for the US dollar (USD) to weaken relative to the Yen in the coming month and what the implications would be for the stock market, volatility, and gold. A key excerpt...
  • Silver Ready to Run
    By on January 18, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Silver looks to be on the verge of a major new upleg, finally emerging from the past couple years’ ugly sentiment wasteland.  This beleaguered precious metal recently bottomed as futures speculators threw in the towel on their extreme shorting.  And while investors’ ongoing silver stealth buyi...

    By on January 17, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold plunged 48% from its record high above $1,900 an ounce in 2011, to its low late last year. That was a sizable bear market move. Shorter-term, it was one of last year’s worst performers, down 15% for the year. In a recent column, I noted how at year-end, investors looking for the next year’s...

  • Gold Stocks Turning Up
    By on January 10, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    The gold miners have seen impressive investor interest in their beaten-down stocks in this young new year, with capital inflows fueling a sharp rally.  And this buying is likely just beginning, as major market changes are afoot that should catapult gold much higher.  With gold stocks trading at fu...

    Warren Buffett’s classic observation that “You only see who’s swimming naked when the tide goes out” is being tossed around more frequently these days, as the world gets yet another deflation scare. Zero Hedge just published a great piece on this topic, which should be read in its entirety. ...

    By on December 30, 2014 | No Comments  Comments
    Twelve short months ago, the immediate future looked like a lock. Overvalued equities had to fall, ridiculously-low interest rates had to rise, and beaten-down precious metals had to resume their bull market. The evidence was overwhelming. Debt in the developed world had risen to $157 trillion, or 3...
