Global Gold-Mining Trends 2

Global Gold-Mining Trends 2

It wasn’t long ago that global gold-mine production had fallen to alarming lows. In 2008 this bellwether supply source was on the heels of a 5-year 13% decline, offering the markets its lowest output in 12 years. And this precipitous plunge had left folks scratching their heads considering gold demand was on the rise and its price was entrenched in a powerful secular bull. Thankfully this 2008 low would mark a major turning point in global mine production. And a powerful new uptrend formed that has seen volume rocket to an all-time high in just three years. According to estimates by the US Geological Survey, in 2011 mine production was […]

The fear factor in gold equities

The market is like a kid that can only ride a bike with training wheels on it, according to Robert Cohen of GCIC Ltd. As portfolio manager of the Dynamic Precious Metals Fund and the Dynamic Strategic Gold Class Fund (sold in Canada) and the Dynamic Gold & Precious Metals Fund (sold in the U.S.), Cohen is expecting a new set of training wheels in the form of a third round of quantitative easing. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Cohen suggests that, as fear among investors continues to drive down stock prices, the market is now primed for patient accumulation. Companies mentioned: AMPELLA MINING LTD. – AZUMAH RESOURCES LTD. […]

What Is Volume Telling Us about Gold Stocks?

What Is Volume Telling Us about Gold Stocks?

By Jeff Clark, Casey Research I’ve read articles from more than one analyst claiming that gold stocks are down on low volume, implying there’s a lack of interest in precious metals. While on the surface that seems like an obvious statement, their point is that most of the recent volume has been coming from sellers and thus exaggerating the recent decline. I decided to test this hypothesis, because if correct, it has investment implications, starting with the fact that at some point you run out of sellers; and if and when buyers return, the ensuing rise could be spectacular. I also wanted to compare volume now to the waterfall decline […]

Gold: Like Summer 2011 Never Happened

Gold: Like Summer 2011 Never Happened

Wearing its greatest debt burden since WWII, the UK government can now borrow for 10 years at less than 1.9% per annum. The US Treasury is paying 2.9% per annum on 30-year debt. Does anyone really expect a yield of less than 3% to beat inflation between here and 2042…? Yet the price of gold – the anti-debt – keeps falling, and it keeps falling despite the imminent failure of Greece’s Euro membership and the looming collapse of Europe’s banking system. Some €700m per day is being pulled from Greek banks. Global stock markets have fallen over 7% already this month, the broad commodity markets have fallen for 10 out […]

Gold Investment Demand in Asia

| May 14, 2012 | Articles: Insights

Contrary to many Western views, emerging-world demand for gold ‘jewelry’ sits on the border of decoration and investment, writes Julian Phillips at the GoldForecaster. We prefer to look at it as Gold Investment demand, and to relegate Western jewelry demand – the source of the confusion – to one that is reactive to the state of the developed world’s economic states. Emerging world demand in these nations where economic growth is such a powerhouse that it is enriching their entire societies. Consequently, the number of middle class members in those societies has rocketed. Eventually the middle class of China’s population of 1.3 billion people will reach 400 million or so. This equals the population […]

A Contrarian’s Guide to Volatile Markets

Trotting the globe in his unrelenting quest for investing opportunities, Bob Moriarty had just completed a 21,000-mile travel-a-thon when he picked up the phone for this exclusive interview with The Gold Report. He liked a lot of what he saw, found plenty of bargains along the way and is willing to name names.

Gold Price Demand Drivers

| May 11, 2012 | Articles: Insights

Central bank old demand is a relatively price-insensitive force that’s strong day-to-day, clearing the market of stock when available. It enters the market in a way that leaves the market relatively undisturbed, writes Julian Phillips of GoldForecaster. But the rest of demand is very different. It’s this other demand that will drive the Gold Price. Some of it is price sensitive, some not. Some is price sensitive in a surprising way. Some simply takes tonnage without being in itself a driving force. There are some forces that have no intention of holding gold for longer than their short-term view persists and then will sell it again. Within the above parameters, it’s extremely difficult to […]

Smart money is buying gold today, an excellent buy signal

What are the real buy signals you need to look for in a long term bull market ? We are not talking about some news items or articles in the mainstream media channels, neither some “investment advice” from banks. They all have their own interest as they to come out with their advice. Media have advertisers which they need to pamper in order to secure their revenues, banks maybe need to sell some funds or related financial products, etc. By contrast, we strongly believe that you need to watch what the real and independant experts are telling and what they are doing with their own money. So let’s have a […]

Why I’m Excited About This Gold Market

| April 24, 2012 | Articles: Insights

By Rick Rule After a reasonably long period of sustained and occasionally dramatic escalations, commodity markets in general, and precious metals markets in particular, have declined. This is normal and healthy behavior, even if it is uncomfortable for some market participants. Readers with a long memory will remember the 1970s gold bull market, where the gold price advanced from $35 to $850 per ounce – though in 1975, in the middle of that epic bull market, the gold price declined by 50%. While a 50% decline is a near-religious event for many market participants, particularly those on margin, it is instructive to note that at the bottom of the retrenchment […]

Gold and Silver Stocks are currently deeply undervalued, is this a once in a lifetime buying opportunity?

Gold and Silver Stocks are currently deeply undervalued, is this a once in a lifetime buying opportunity?

A lot has been written lately about the undervaluation of the Gold & Silver mining stocks. One has not to look further than the charts of the major gold & silver indexes like the XAU, HUI or GDX,  and compare them with the broad market indexes like Dow Jones Index or S&P 500 in the US or similar indexes worldwide. The picture becomes even worse when looking at the junior mining companies in the GDXJ. It seems like the gold & silver mining sector missed the rally of Q1 2012. One could ask himself how that’s possible, given the good to outstanding results that a lot of mining companies reported […]

A strong gold price and positive performance of gold as an investment in Q1 2012

The World Gold Council published this week their quarterly research about the investment in gold in the first quarter of 2012. There were three major conclusions, as summarized below. 1. The gold price has risen in all major currencies. The long term positive evolution of the gold price is still intact.

We saw a very similar trend in the gold price in other major currencies, like the euro or the yuan. Especially […]
