Gold-Stock Capitulation

Gold-Stock Capitulation

Gold stocks have been pummeled mercilessly this month, their price action looking almost apocalyptic. The psychological stress spawned by such extreme weakness is intense, breaking the wills of this sector’s few remaining bulls. This week their selling cascaded into a full-blown capitulation, a mass surrender by weary investors. While exceedingly miserable, these events flag major long-term bottoms. Over the course of gold’s powerful secular bull, the gold stocks have been a sentiment roller coaster. Early on their gains were enormous, gold stocks even rocketed higher while the general stock markets plunged in a brutal cyclical bear. Though they were nearly obliterated in 2008’s once-in-a-lifetime stock panic, as expected they soon […]

Growing Fear Of Financial System Could Start Flight Out Of U.S. Bonds Into Gold and Silver

Growing Fear Of Financial System Could Start Flight Out Of U.S. Bonds Into Gold and Silver

Around the year 1650 A.D. the word highwaymen entered our language.  It referred to robbery committed on a public road against travelers.  Now we use the phrase “highway robbery” for which we pay the tolls to travel on modern day roads.  The highwaymen alas are among us and we have elected them.  At such times it would not take much more in the destruction of mining equities to make investors feel as if they have been seduced by sweet talk and abandoned to the wolves of Wall Street by latter day highwaymen. Simply put it has been one in which the elites have shrugged their collective soldiers, leaving the rest […]

How does a Gold Bull Climax look like

How does a Gold Bull Climax look like

Gold has had a rough time lately, grinding relentlessly lower. Such technical weakness has naturally spawned increasingly bearish psychology. This has led to a fringe view growing in popularity that gold’s mighty secular bull has already given up its ghost. If these new-bear arguments are correct, gold’s secular bull had to peak last August. But was that latest topping gold-bull-climax worthy? Not even close. As the word describes, “secular” bull markets last a long time. In the stock markets, secular bulls and bears tend to run for an incredible 17 years each! Gold’s latest bull was born way back in April 2001, over a decade before its alleged climax in […]

Does Gold Investing Pay?

Does Gold Investing Pay?

Gold Investing yields no income. But does it make life cheaper in future…? What’s the point of investing? Plenty of people below 50 today – and a good many older – might well wonder, says Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Two stock market crashes, two recessions and a global house-price slump make the last decade a worse advert for investing than One Direction are for clean-living youth. Yes, silver and Gold Investing stand out in contrast, but they don’t actually yield any interest. Nor do cash, bonds, Treasuries or stocks anymore. But while the point of investing might be hard to see today, its purpose is plain: “Investing [is] the transfer to others of purchasing power now with the reasoned expectation of receiving […]

Cook thinks that many investors buy junior mining stocks as play on physical gold – though these are very different markets. Many companies haven’t delivered on overly-optimistic profit projections, and the market has been heading lower since the optimism highs of late 2010. As profitable, high profit margin companies have got trashed along with more speculative stocks in this downturn, Cook believes that there are some fantastic investment opportunities right now, which could pull money back into this sector.
