Junior Gold Exploration – part II

Junior Gold Exploration – part II

Over the course of gold’s secular bull the demand for this precious metal has skyrocketed. And as a result gold’s primary supply source, mine production, has been forced to respond. Thankfully with the price of gold soaring to all-time highs, there’s been no shortage of mining companies hitting the hills to look for the next deposit. As a result of more and more miners looking for gold, more and more gold is being found. And thanks to an industry-wide boost in capex to develop these finds, this bull’s exploration cycle has recently started to bear its fruit. This fruit is production growth for three years running, including a 2011 tally […]

World Navigating Troubled Waters: Gold and Silver Will Move Higher As Safe Haven

World Navigating Troubled Waters: Gold and Silver Will Move Higher As Safe Haven

We have climbed the wall of worry for over twenty years as wealth in the ground becomes increasingly desirable in a world that is threatened with the ghosts of depressions past.  We observe the doubters who regale us with such headlines as “The Fed’s Big Move Is No Solution” or a noted economist writes that he senses the tone of urgency of Fed Governor Janet Yellen’s remarks that “the scope remains to provide additional accommodation.”  Yellen’s comments are really repetitions of her boss The Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke. The world is navigating very troubled waters.  For over four years the top Central Banks orchestrated by the Federal Reserve Chief injected […]

Investors Need to Understand Basic Geology

Chris Wilson, president of Exploration Alliance, a niche consulting group, believes education is an investment basic. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report,Wilson shares his guidelines for winnowing out the crowded junior mining sector to find the companies worth serious investigation and urges investors to know their porphyries from their narrow veins. The Gold Report: Chris, you have described the junior mining industry as being “in disarray.” Do you have any ideas for investors who might want to participate in the space, but may be a bit confused or discouraged? Chris Wilson: Well, upfront I would say do not lose heart, but do not go throwing your money at just any junior […]

Why Are We Certain that Gold Producers Will Soar?

Why Are We Certain that Gold Producers Will Soar?

By Jeff Clark, Casey Research For the past eighteen months, gold stocks have been pummeled. They showed some life from mid-May to mid-June – GDX, the gold miner’s index, was up 21%, while gold rose 5.5%. That bounce was exciting, but they’ve still got a lot of lost ground to make up. Since January 1, 2011, GDX is down 28%, while gold is up 10%. So what’s going to move these darn stocks? Will their day ever come? Could our research – gulp – be wrong? Jokes have even started circulating… What’s the difference between a seagull and a gold stock investor? The seagull can still make a deposit on […]

Are You Brave Enough to Buy Low?

Are You Brave Enough to Buy Low?

By Louis James, Casey Research This time last week, I was at the Cambridge House World Resource Investment Conference in Vancouver, BC. Usually the show is quite hopping, but this time, while there was the usual mob and there was standing room only at several of the events Doug, the Casey crew, and I participated in, the mood was decidedly low-key. But here’s the interesting part: it was low-key, but not depressed. In fact, with metals and related stocks having just had a particularly vicious few months in the markets, I was half-expecting an angry confrontation with a soon to be ex-subscriber… maybe more. But that didn’t happen. People were […]

Producers for Growth, Juniors for Speculation

Producers for Growth, Juniors for Speculation

In the early days of this bull market many prominent analysts and leaders from the bullish camp noted that the juniors would be the way to best leverage the bull market. The thinking was that juniors were a call option on Gold and senior producers because of their lack of exploration in the previous decade would need to acquire the juniors to replaces reserves and grow production. From 2002 to 2007 the juniors performed quite well. Yet, five years and two cyclical bear markets later, the juniors have lost their luster while Gold has nearly tripled in the same period. In this missive we look at some charts to decipher […]

Only buy from trustworthy bullion dealers

Another precious metals scam has been uncovered in America. Sterling Precious Metals of Boca Raton, Florida, is being investigated by the feds and stands accused of bilking clients out of approximately $10 million. According to a lawsuit filed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the company placed special emphasis on targeting senior citizens, who had to pay disproportionate commissions and storage fees. In an effort to recover part of customers’ investments, next week the FTC will request a federal judge freezes Sterling Precious Metals’ bank accounts and have an escrow holder take care of the company. This is not an isolated case. There are unfortunately an increasing number of unscrupulous gold […]

Peter Schiff: if you really care about the debt crisis, then you should be in gold

Peter Schiff explains his economic view on the important moves in the financial markets past Friday and concludes with his take on gold. It all started with the US jobs data for May: estimates were that 150.000 new jobs were created, but instead the number stuck at 69.000. That means unemployment rate in the US is now  8.2%. If you have a look at another unemployment number – being the so-called U6 which includes also the discouraged unemployed people – the rate is 14.8% now. Apart from the bad US unemployment numbers, the expected GDP in Q1 was revised downward and is now expected to be 1.9%. But Peter Schiff […]

Gold’s Contrarian Moment

Gold’s Contrarian Moment

By David Galland, Casey Research Glancing at the news most days, it’s hard not to feel like Bill Murray’s character in Groundhog Day. In the event you are unfamiliar with the movie, in it Murray’s character becomes trapped in the same day… day after day.

Then, in no more than a few days, or at most a couple of weeks, the fix is revealed to be flawed and the crisis again sparks into flames… followed shortly thereafter by […]

Paper gold pitfalls

| May 29, 2012 | Articles: Insights

Last year’s disastrous collapse of MF Global has impacted financial markets around the world in many ways. Given that it was one of the largest brokers of leveraged products, it is no surprise that this area has felt the full force of MF Global’s collapse. For example, futures trading volume on US exchanges has dropped noticeably, mainly for two reasons. First, MF Global customers who are still waiting for their money to be returned are not trading. Second, customers of other brokers have understandably become worried about the safety of their money and withdrawn funds from those firms, which has reduced their capacity to trade. Gold has not been spared […]
