Unallocated Gold Storage Or Accounts: Avoid This Risk When Buying Gold

This is the third of a five part series that is based on a Q&A with Nick Barisheff, CEO of Bullion Management Group Inc. and author of the book “$10,000 Gold: Why Gold’s Inevitable Rise is the Investor’s Safe Haven.” His book will be released later this year but is available now for pre-order on Amazon.com. In our first article, we discussed the single most important reason for gold’s primary upward trend pointing to $10,000. The second part provided insights in the unwillingness of people and the media to see the real benefits of owning physical gold. In this third article, we look at the risks to avoid when buying precious metals. […]

Darryl Schoon’s Five Favorite Books

We had the honour this weekend to do a Q&A with Darryl Schoon. What was intended to be a short talk about a limited number of specific questions, became a long and in-depth conversation about the fundamentals of modern life (economy, money and currency, precious metals, psychology, history). The world through the lens of Gold as Darryl sees it … that’s how we would describe the unique conversation. We would like to thank Darryl for the time he spent with us and the timely knowledge and wisdom he shared. Of course, readers will benefit from his insights as well, as we’ll publish several resumes in the coming weeks, starting with Darryl’s […]

Buy The Dips In The Gold Price: Two Reliable Buying Indicators

Buy The Dips In The Gold Price: Two Reliable Buying Indicators

Only looking at the gold price chart as an indicator to make a gold or silver purchase is not the best thing to do. One could be distracted by the fact that gold (in most currencies) is somewhere near its all-time highs. One should be more than anything else look at the fundamentals. Those fundamentals have never been better for gold & silver. The most important ones include the follwoing: the monetary base is expanding at a high pace and monetary policies around the world all point to a continuation of that trend, the so-called “money printing” policies are taking place on a global basis and are associated with the debasement […]

Tips On How To Time Gold Purchases with Technical Analysis

Tips On How To Time Gold Purchases with Technical Analysis

Technical Analysis is mathematical analysis of the market based on price action, but not the fundamentals of supply, demand, costs of production, and hundreds of other important factors (fundamental analysis). Many people will tell you Technical Analysis does not work. I disagree. If you understand its limits, it works quite well. Do I completely trust technical analysis? Certainly not! I want to know as much as I can about any market I trade, whether it is gold, wheat, an oil stock, or the S&P 500 index, and that includes as many fundamentals and as much relevant technical analysis as possible. How many times have you heard commentators examining the same data, and […]

Manipulation of the Gold Price & the Crash of Paper Gold

| September 24, 2012 | Articles: Insights

By Jeff Thomas, Internatioal Man There is much discussion these days as to whether the price of gold is being manipulated. The answer is simply “yes.” It is likely that most potential gold investors would agree that the major financial institutions have the ability to influence the gold price. They would also agree that to do so would be of benefit to those institutions. Yet, many investors still have difficulty making the final leap to agree that, if the institutions can manipulate the gold price and, by doing so, will profit from it, they will actually manipulate the price. Odd, as this would seem to me to be the easiest […]

I have an IRA. How can I invest in Gold and Silver?

| September 23, 2012 | Articles: Insights

It is quite easy! Yes, I am talking about actual physical gold and silver, not “paper” gold, or certificates, or paper promises. Question: Why gold and silver in an IRA? Answer: The simplest explanation is that gold and silver will protect your purchasing power. There are many other reasons including safety in the event of another economic melt-down such as what happened in 2008. Question: Why not buy ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) that invest in gold and silver, such as GLD, SLV, PSLV, and PHYS? Answer: You certainly can. They are more convenient to buy and sell, and the annual fees are less. But, if you are looking for maximum […]

Why Cash Flow Is Crucial To Gold and Silver Mining Investors

Why Cash Flow Is Crucial To Gold and Silver Mining Investors

Since July we have alerted our readers to a breakout in gold and silver prices as we expected a risk on rally in commodities with the catalyst being QE3 combined with worldwide stimulus moves from Central Bankers.   Since that time silver has soared 30% higher almost 10 straight weeks in a row as Bernanke announces a QE 3, 4, 5+…? and record low interest rates until mid 2015. Silver has been outperforming gold over the past 10 weeks as investors are hoarding and buying poor man’s gold to hedge against worldwide quantitative easing and pump-priming being implemented by Central Banks around the world to devalue their respective currencies.   The Bank […]

Not all that glitters is gold

Not all that glitters is gold

This week we saw another gold counterfeit scandal, this time out of New York, with tungsten-filled gold bars being discovered by a highly reputable dealer. It is very hard to detect tungsten fakes by traditional measures, since tungsten (atomic number 74) has a high density, which is 19.3 times that of water, and comparable to that of gold (atomic number 79). In other words, its weight is very similar to that of gold. However GoldMoney’s ultrasound testing of gold bars is the perfect solution, as it can easily detect impurities of this sort and ensures that the bars meet the stringent GoldMoney Standard of quality. This latest technology guarantees that there is not a […]

Government and gold confiscation: tips to protect your assets

Government and gold confiscation: tips to protect your assets

This article brings the point of view of Claudio Grass from Global Gold in Switzerland. My advice to everyone is simple and clear: “Get out of the current financial system,  avoid paper money and the banking system in general and move into physical precious metals.” David Stockman has put it this way: “ABCD – Anything Bernanke Cannot Destroy!” Confiscation is already here. I am not talking about outright confiscation of assets, but the confiscation of the buying power by inflating the money supply. If you keep your money in a bank account or “invest” it in bonds, you are actually losing money in real terms (i.e. after inflation). The decrease […]

Silver Bull Seasonals 2

Silver Bull Seasonals 2

Silver is mined year-round at a fairly constant rate across the globe. Thus it is somewhat counterintuitive that this metal would exhibit marked seasonal tendencies tied to the calendar. But it sure does. Unlike the agricultural commodities, silver’s seasonality is driven by fluctuations in demand rather than supply. And silver is just entering its strongest time of the year, which is very bullish for it and its miners’ stocks. The primary driver of silver price action is gold. The vast majority of the time with few exceptions, silver’s fortunes are closely slaved to gold’s. Investors and speculators are only likely to plow capital into silver and drive up its price […]
