  • Post-ZIRP Stock/Gold Era
    By on December 20, 2015 | No Comments  Comments

  • Gold Thrives in Rate-Hike Cycles!
    By on December 12, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold’s deep new secular lows of recent weeks were fueled by American futures speculators’ overpowering fear of Fed rate hikes.  They believe zero-yielding gold is doomed in a higher-rate world, so they dumped gold futures at astounding record rates.  The problem is history proves just the oppo...

  • Stock Topping Valuations
    By on November 28, 2015 | No Comments  Comments

    By on November 24, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    The beleaguered gold-mining sector continues to be plagued by monumental universal bearishness.  Nearly everyone assumes the gold miners are doomed, that they can’t survive for long in a sub-$1200-gold environment.  But this belief is totally wrong, a consequence of extreme fear’s fog of war....
  • Absurd Gold-Stock Levels 2

    Gold stocks have suffered heavy collateral damage following the Federal Reserve’s hawkish surprise late last month, which ignited enormous gold-futures selling by American speculators.  This devastated sector has been battered back down near last summer’s deep secular lows.  But these gold-sto...
  • Shorts Savage Gold After Fed
    By on November 7, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold has enjoyed a strong new uptrend in recent months following last summer’s extreme gold-futures shorting attack.  But speculators returned with a vengeance this past week, aggressively dumping gold futures again following a hawkish surprise by the Fed.  The resulting gold plunge shattered it...
  • Fed’s US Debt Bomb

  • Silver’s Deep Undervaluation
    By on October 24, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Silver is finally showing some signs of life after suffering a dark year.  The epically-bearish sentiment that bludgeoned this metal to major secular lows is cracking, with a strong rebound rally now underway.  And this recent buying is likely just the earliest vanguard, as silver remains deeply u...
  • Radical Gold Underinvestment 2
    By on October 17, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Despite gold blasting higher this month, this metal remains deeply out of favor among investors.  They have shunned it for years thanks to extreme central-bank money printing levitating stock markets.  This slayed demand for alternative investments, led by gold.  But the resulting radical underin...
  • Gold Stocks’ Major Breakout

    The left-for-dead gold stocks have rallied dramatically this past week, surging to a major breakout.  This pivotal technical event reveals the hyper-bearish psychology plaguing this sector in recent months is dissipating, paving the way for investment capital to return.  And given the fundamentall...
  • Fed’s Serious Inflation Risks
    By on October 8, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Traders today universally believe inflation is dead, that there is no persistent decline in the purchasing power of money.  That’s what government price indexes around the world are indicating.  But this false notion is one of recent years’ main Fed-conjured illusions.  Price inflation is the...
  • Gold’s Dead-Wrong Psychology
    By on September 26, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Gold has lapsed deeper into pariahdom this year, becoming the most-hated investment class in all the markets.  Traders are avoiding it like the plague, utterly convinced gold is doomed to spiral lower perpetually.  But this wildly-bearish psychology is dead wrong.  Financial markets are forever c...
  • Higher Interest Rates? Not Next Month, Not Even Next ...
    By on September 19, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Not only did the Fed vote to keep interest rates stable yesterday, it did so overwhelmingly — with just as many members apparently favoring lower rates as higher. Now all the people who bought the “rate normalization” promise/threat are backtracking. From today’s Bloomberg: Expecting a Fed ...
