QE3’s Ominous End Looms

The Federal Reserve’s third quantitative-easing campaign is on track to wind down in late October. At that point the Fed will likely stop printing new money to buy bonds, a sea-change shift with ominous implications for the stock markets. Their entire surreal levitation during QE3 mirrored the huge growth in the Fed’s... Read more »

Strong Reversal Augurs for Rough September

In recent weeks we wrote about the ongoing consolidation in precious metals miners. We touched on the history of September, not as a bullish month but as an important inflection point. With the miners holding up well and Gold still holding its lows we thought a breakout could be coming. Yet we’ve been whipsawed before.... Read more »

Gold & Silver: Jobs Report Tactics

1. Gold has a rough general tendency to decline during the week leading up to the release of the US Employment Situation Report (jobs report). 2. Following the release of that report (Friday at 8:30AM), gold tends to begin a decent minor or intermediate trend rally. 3. Gold has exhibited this trading pattern for... Read more »

Dollar Soars to New Highs

Briefly: In our opinion no speculative positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are now justified from the risk/reward perspective. The back-and-forth trading in the USD Index ended as it pierced through the short-term resistance and also above this year’s high. As we have emphasized many times previously, the... Read more »

Miners Have Already Rallied – Will Metals Follow?

Briefly: In our opinion no speculative positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are now justified from the risk/reward perspective. When one looks at gold and silver prices and their moves yesterday, it might seem that nothing happened in the precious metals market. That’s far from the truth because the real... Read more »

Oreninc: Killing Projects

Benjamin Cox speaks on the different stages of project review. He mentions that Oreninc currently has an intern working on project review and how this has allowed the intern to do real work.

Bullion Banks: Unexpected Allies

1. Most investors buy gold because they are nervous about the financial system, government debt/bureaucracy, central bank money printing, and dangerous geopolitical developments. In a nutshell, that’s the “fear trade” for gold. 2. The fear trade is a great reason to own a core position in gold now, and forever.... Read more »

Miners Next Move: Breakout or Breakdown?

We’ve been very bullish on the miners since January but became concerned recently with the poor technical action in the metals (specifically Gold). Last month the mining indices were very close to a major breakout yet couldn’t punch through. This signaled that Gold could begin a deeper decline and the miners would... Read more »

More Weakness Ahead for the Miners

No pain, no gain. That is one comment regarding this seemingly terminal bottoming process in the precious metals complex. Multiple times as soon as conditions have strengthened enough for us to anticipate a breakout, the miners have put in a bearish reversal. At the same time, the metals and especially Gold have failed... Read more »

Euro’s Breakdown and Its Implications

Briefly: In our opinion (full) speculative short positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are now justified from the risk/reward perspective. The Euro Index broke decisively below the rising long-term support line (based on the 2012 and mid-2013 bottoms) and this is a major event not only for the currency itself,... Read more »

Will Gold Drag Down the Miners?

We know that the gold and silver stocks lead the metals at key turning points. The stocks started their bear market well ahead of Gold. This year the stocks have exhibited excellent relative strength. Gold and Silver are up less than 10% this year while GDX is up 27% and GDXJ is up 43%. In recent days GDX and GDXJ reached... Read more »

Massive PM-Futures Buying

Both gold and silver have enjoyed massive buying by American futures speculators in recent weeks. It all started with Fed chair Janet Yellen’s cavalier dismissal of inflation, but the buying momentum persisted well after that. Happening in the midst of the summer doldrums when global precious-metals investment demand... Read more »

Gold and Silver Stocks: It’s Old Turkey Time!

Those familiar with Jesse Livermore and the book Reminiscences of a Stock Operator know who Old Turkey is. He was Mr. Partridge, an old trader who dispensed great wisdom in few words. Those at the office nicknamed him Turkey because of the way in which he strutted around with his chest puffed out. Livermore gleaned... Read more »

Central Bank Gamblers Versus Gold Stocks

Originally published on June 17, 2014. 1. Today is a very important day at City Hall in London, England. Central bank research group OMFIF is presenting a blockbuster report on public sector spending. I think that everyone in the global gold community should take note of it. 2. OMFIF argues, quite persuasively,... Read more »

Black Swans Increasing Demand in Junior Gold Miners

Are the blacks swans waking you up from the summer doldrums? The technical signals are turning positive for gold (GLD), silver (SLV) and the junior gold (GDXJ) and silver (SIL) miners.

Miners Break Out Despite Dollar's Rally

Briefly: In our opinion no speculative positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. The precious metals market moved higher yesterday, which was in tune with what we've been expecting. The key question is if gold, silver and mining stocks have completed... Read more »

Precious Metals Moving Closer to Bottom

Though precious metals are rallying on the day we pen this (May 30), we expect more downside before a final bottom or at least before we’ll exit hedges and begin buying. Since the hard reversal in March we’ve had the view that precious metals would decline and the miners could retest their December lows. We’ve... Read more »

Top Mining Minds: Richard Warke, Augusta Resources

More of the Same – For How Long?

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) in gold, silver, and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. The history repeats itself once again – gold just attempted to move higher but failed to ignite anything more than a small daily rally. Let’s see if there’s anything... Read more »

Turnaround

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) in gold, silver, and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. The history repeats itself and we have just seen another example confirming this statement. Gold once again moved higher initially but failed to hold its gains even until the... Read more »

Critical Support in Silver

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) are justified from the risk/reward perspective in gold, silver, and mining stocks. The previous week started quite favorably for precious metals bulls, but as the week progressed, the situation became less bullish, and finally we saw some bearish signs. Overall,... Read more »

Silver Stealth Buying

Silver has suffered as a market pariah this year, dragging along doggedly near major lows. Investors have seemingly abandoned it to chase the Fed’s general-stock-market levitation, an affliction plaguing most of the alternative-investment realm. But rather provocatively, silver buying remains quite strong even in... Read more »

Dollar’s Plunge and Its Implications

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) are justified from the risk/reward perspective for gold, silver, and mining stocks. The most important thing that we saw in the markets yesterday was the major decline in the USD Index and the lack of proper response from gold, silver and mining stocks. Such... Read more »

Decline in Gold & Silver Create Opportunity

Last week we noted that the gold and silver shares had formed a short-term rebound in response to an oversold condition. Yet we felt that the downtrend that originated from the hard reversal in March was still in effect. As we go to publish, the rebound appears to be petering out. Be aware that there is more potential... Read more »

Gold and Silver Stocks Begin Oversold Bounce

The bottoming process for gold and silver shares has been arduous as they’ve oscillated back and forth for almost a year. We noted a month ago that the failed breakout in March was strong evidence that an interim top was in place. Heading into this week it looked like the miners would fall further before finding support.... Read more »

More Weakness Ahead for Precious Metals

The Fed minutes were dovish and this helped push Gold above $1310 to $1320. However, the miners, which usually lead the metals did little to confirm the rise. In fact, the miners have been relatively weak in recent days and had a bearish reversal on Thursday. Their rebound from an oversold condition has petered out.... Read more »

Gold and the Ideal Buy Point

Next month marks the 3-year anniversary of the bear market in silver that started in May 2011. Later this summer we will hit the 3-year anniversaries of the bear markets in gold and gold stocks. We are now psychologically conditioned for pain and punishment in the gold markets and to beware of the next downward plunge. In... Read more »

A Golden Opportunity Coming in Silver

Silver has been in a bear market for almost three years and the recent lack of strength suggests the metal could be headed for new lows. New lows are always bearish until the last one. Our technical work suggests that we should watch for a final low and end to the bear market in the coming months. This chart plots... Read more »

Avarone Metals - High Risk, Return Junior Gold Explorer

Last week I held a series of phone calls with Marc Levy, CEO of junior gold explorer Avarone Metals, [AVM.V]. I first met Mr. Levy in Toronto at this year’s PDAC.

Confirmation of a Breakdown

Briefly: In our opinion short speculative positions in silver (half) and mining stocks (full) are justified from the risk/reward perspective. Friday was generally a calm day in the precious metals market and for the currency indices. The initial moves higher (in the early part of the session) were mostly invalidated... Read more »

Failed Breakout Marks Interim Top

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you have witnessed the now false breakout in Gold and gold stocks. Our expectation was that the breakout would take Gold to $1420 and the stocks up to their neckline resistance (GDX $30 and GDXJ $51) and then we’d see the first real correction since the December low.... Read more »

Gold Fails to Rally

Briefly: In our opinion short speculative positions (half) in silver and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. We are closing half of the long-term investment position in gold. As you know, we had been expecting the tensions in Ukraine to cause a significant rally in gold (not necessarily... Read more »

Dollar Rallies, Gold Declines

In short: In our opinion short positions (half): gold, silver, and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. The entire precious metals sector declined yesterday, even gold. Has the situation changed enough to double the short position? Let’s take a closer look (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com). ... Read more »

Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Juniors' Outperformance

In short: In our opinion short positions (half): gold, silver, and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. Gold, silver and mining stocks didn’t do much on Friday, so what we wrote in Friday’s alert is generally up-to-date. However, since the week is over, we have weekly closing prices and... Read more »

Silver's Upswing and Euro's Resistance
