Gold and Silver Are “Asymmetric” Trades

Gold and Silver Are “Asymmetric” Trades

An asymmetric trade is a situation where investing a relatively small amount of money holds the potential of yielding a profit many times the amount of the original sum at risk. In other words, where the risk to reward is skewed massively in the direction of reward. This took place recently with Bitcoin (BTC). Is this conceptually different from bets made years ago on Microsoft, Cisco, Amazon, or Facebook, which yielded hundreds of percent profit to intrepid investors? Does it have relevance to the possible returns during the next few years for those who hold physical gold and silver? I would answer “yes” and “yes.” The current “mania” in the […]

Trump World: What Happens to Your Investments Now?

Trump World: What Happens to Your Investments Now?

Donald Trump’s victory came as the first surprise for many around the world. The reaction in the markets was the second surprise. Investors got what they expected for a few hours overnight as the ballot results came in; stocks were crushed and metals spiked higher. By mid-morning on Wednesday, however, stocks were surging and metals rolled over. Now, a few days post-election, commentators and “experts” have written stories to explain the action in markets. Some of these stories may even prove true. But at this early stage, investors should recognize that markets mostly reflect hopes, fears, and high frequency trading shenanigans. Reality tends to arrive later. All eyes are focused […]

Fed Chair Yellen’s Plan B: “Intervene Directly” in Stock Market

Fed Chair Yellen’s Plan B: “Intervene Directly” in Stock Market

October could see a ramping up of volatility across all asset markets. The month is notorious on Wall Street for the 1987 stock market crash. Fall crashes also occurred in 2002 and 2008. Are we due for another one? Perhaps. Some analysts think it will come after the election. Others think the stock market will stay elevated until the Federal Reserve raises rates. The Fed will be out of the picture this month – at least as far as policy decisions are concerned. The Fed won’t convene another policy meeting until November 1-2. Most Fed watchers expect the central bank to avoid making any rate moves so close to the […]

Gold Miners Are Coming Alive

Our most interesting observation of this week is that gold has traded flat for a couple of days but that gold and silver miners were rising significantly on those days. We know that miners have a track record of leading the metals both higher and lower. That being said, this week’s price action in the gold mining space could be of exceptional significance. The three key gold and silver mining indices are all flashing the same bullish signals. The chart below features several indicators which are mainly sending bullish signals.

Gold Miners: The Ultimate Contrarian Investment

Returns have been quite awful to say the least, which from a contrarian perspective gives investors a chance to bet on a short term bounce, if not a long term rebound. Conditions in the Precious Metals sector are very much depressed from the historical basis, as evidenced by the following two charts.

Now Is The Time To Accumulate Future Gold Mining Tenbaggers

One of the people who has proven to be extremely successful in the gold mining area is Keith Neumeyer. He has made First Quantum Minerals and First Majestic Silver successful, and he started those companies at the depths of the previous bear market. His first two gold miners reached billion-dollar market caps. He now is going for a third succes with First Mining Finance (FF). It’s a mineral bank for hard asset investors, where Keith and his team will accumulate high-quality resources at dirt cheap prices due to the 4-year commodity bear market.

First Majestic Hitting Multi-Decade Support Level

First Majestic could go lower from here but it has reached a fairly strong support level. The $3 level acted as both support and resistance during 2006 through 2010 and now price is testing that level again. The sliding parallel, see the dashed line on the chart below, provided support in November and December 2014 and price is testing that support level again.

High Confidence In Gold Stocks Even If Consolidation Will Continue

High Confidence In Gold Stocks Even If Consolidation Will Continue

We believe that the new commitment to cost transparency, greater financial discipline and shareholder value represent a crucial – if late in coming – insight into the sector’s managers. Whether this new focus turns out to be mere lip service or not will become evident in coming quarters. Since the sector’s massive write-downs and value adjustments were one-off events, they could result in greater upside leverage. We therefore believe that gold stocks continue to exhibit a strongly asymmetrical risk/reward profile at present.

Gold Mining Alert: Possible Surprise Could Unfold in the Matter of Weeks

This may be the biggest mining opportunity in decades, which is why I am urging you to research Callinex Mines immediately! I am convinced that Callinex Mines (CNX) is now months away from becoming the hottest stock in Vancouver. Some major players are moving in big with this stock, taking up large positions… Even a previous BHP executive has joined their team of advisors, Steve Swatton, who, while with BHP, was the Global Head of Business Development for their exploration division!
