Double Bottom Breakout In Junior Mining Stocks Before Labor Day

Double Bottom Breakout In Junior Mining Stocks Before Labor Day

There is an economic malaise all over the world, record unemployment and soaring deficits, yet the general markets are hitting new highs.  How can a market rise despite all the negative gloom and doom economic numbers? We believe the market and intelligent capital is coming to the realization that the Central Banks through the use of Quantitative Easing and record negative interest rates may start a stagflation which is when commodity prices rise higher in the midst of poor economic conditions.  This occurred in the Ford and Carter administration when gold, silver and mining stocks soared. Yields are beginning to rise rapidly since we called the top on treasuries on 7-25-12. Supply […]

The Mining Sector shares have shown some strong performance over the past three weeks having solidly rebounced from down near 390 moving up through several overhead resistance levels. A push through overhead resistance near 440 sets up a run towards a major resistance level centered near 460, which is the point that needs to be bested for a trending move to the upside to develop.

African Barrick takeover talk cheers gold bulls

African Barrick takeover talk cheers gold bulls

Gold and silver have crept quietly higher over the course of the last week, with growing signs of a shift in investor sentiment away from perceived safe havens towards growth or “risk” assets. The yield on the 10-Year US Treasury Note has been a notable indicator of this, moving from around 1.4% in late July all the way to 1.8% today. This is still below the yields seen in March, but the rapidity of the rise (coupled with the US dollar’s continuing struggle to gain momentum) suggests that markets could be in for a bullish spell. Inflation expectations are also rising, which should tempt speculators back into the commodities sector. This should […]

Gold Mining Stocks Continue to Disappoint But Not For Long

Gold Mining Stocks Continue to Disappoint But Not For Long

It is an endless debate for investors interested in gold. Should they buy a direct play on the gold price, either gold bullion itself or even so-called paper gold with an ETF such as the SPDR Gold Shares(NYSEArca: GLD)? Or should they invest into gold equities, particularly the larger, higher quality gold mining companies? Recent history suggests the answer is gold itself. According to Citigroup, physical gold has outperformed global gold equities 120% percent of the time over the past 5 years. Stocks of the bigger gold mining firms seem to react adversely to bad news (which is normal), but the problem is they react with no more than a yawn […]

Why Stock Selection in Gold Mining is Paramount

Why Stock Selection in Gold Mining is Paramount

As we alluded to last week, there is an overflowing amount of evidence that both the metals and the shares have bottomed. Price action, sentiment indicators and fundamentals more than confirm a market bottom. Does this mean the market is ready to zoom much higher? Not necessarily. The sector must contend with some overhead supply as well as repair technical damage that caused a loss of both short and long-term momentum. Once the market forms higher highs and higher lows then its momentum can start to build. Until then, investors have some time to figure out which companies could be the big winners of the next cycle.By now, speculators and investors […]

Stock Bear Looming?

Stock Bear Looming?

With the US stock markets challenging a major multi-year high, investors are feeling pretty complacent these days. But unseen below the placid surface, a serious risk is arising from the depths. With each passing day, the odds grow that a new stock bear is imminent. As these merciless beasts typically maul the markets until stock prices are cut in half, they are dangerous threats that cannot be taken lightly. The stock markets perpetually march forwards in great bull-bear cycles. All bull markets eventually mature and top when greed and complacency grow excessive and everyone willing to buy has already bought. Then bear markets are born, which don’t run their course […]

Buying The Summer Lows While Gold Bottoms

Buying The Summer Lows While Gold Bottoms

General Outlook for Gold and the Miners It is our firm belief that the precious metals sector has bottomed out and the downside is very limited from here on out.  While there doesn’t seem to be an immediate rush back into the sector, now is a great time to be acquiring physical metals, but more importantly producers with growth profiles. That’s where we really see the value and upside potential.  Now would be a good time to start adding and scaling into any new positions you plan on taking. If we would have to make a speculative/educated guess/evaluation, by looking at the charts and fundamentals for precious metals and the […]

Gold Mining Healthy?

In 2011 gold-mine production came in at an all-time record high.  And in 2012 experts anticipate production to be even higher, edging above the previous year’s 87m-ounce tally.  From the looks of it, the major source of gold’s supply is in fine fettle.  But is the gold-mining industry truly healthy? In attempting to answer this question it is important to understand how we got to the production levels we’re at today, and then take a look at some of the structural fundamentals that may impact this industry going forward.  And in terms of how we got here, it was nothing short of remarkable. Interestingly mine production had actually been on […]

Put Your Seatbelts On, It’s About To Get Bumpy

Put Your Seatbelts On, It’s About To Get Bumpy

It was just about a year ago today when the S&P was sitting at fresh highs and everyone was enjoying a rather upbeat summer.  It was a nice summer, the markets were calm, and there was a surreal sense of optimism.  Then, in the matter of a few days, things got real ugly, real quickly. Well, it doesn’t seem like too much has changed since then.  We’ve had mixed earnings reports, ever-evolving worries in Europe, and the always looming fiscal mess in the U.S.  Once again, are we in the calm before the storm? It looks like things in Europe may start to heat up again.  Riots turned violent again […]
