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 […]

Precious Metals: Keep it Simple

Precious Metals: Keep it Simple

This weekend I had a conversation with a fund manager friend who I admire. He lives in the Asia-pac region and has tremendous knowledge of and insight into markets. I asked him what his advice would be. He told me it’s simple. My advice for the next three months is patience. My advice for the next three years is precious metals. People often feel the need to complicate things by over-trading and over-thinking the situation. In this piece, we want to keep it simple for Gold and Silver and the mining shares. The first chart is the chart we published back in May when suggesting that a major bottom could […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. In the current circular condition, we have the powers-that-be assuring us that the next high-level meeting will finally produce a permanent fix to the broken economy, essentially solving the sovereign debt crisis. 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 […]

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 […]

Tower Hill Mines: This Gold Miner Is Trading At A Significant Discount To Bullion

Tower Hill Mines: This Gold Miner Is Trading At A Significant Discount To Bullion

The gold miners are hitting new lows while equities are hitting new highs. Obviously this has caused some of our readers great concern as the fundamentals clearly do not support such a move where wealth in the earth assets are trading at significant discounts, while U.S. bank assets are trading at a premium. Does this possibly mean we should sell our mining assets trading at historic discounts to their asset values for propped up banks and housing stocks?…No, this may be a trap. Indeed the large gold miners have been underperforming, but gold, silver, the juniors, uranium, rare earths are bottoming and have not violated their 2011 lows. Graphite stocks […]
