Mining Stocks and the Gold Price

SO WHEN might a rising Gold Price actually lead to rising stock prices for companies with quality projects and solid treasuries? In this interview with The Gold Report, Outstanding Investments editor Byron King shares his roadmap. The Gold Report: Byron, anyone who reads your reports knows two things: you like to tell stories and you like precious metals. The Gold Price has spent the last 11 years trending higher. Do you see it continuing upward? Byron King: I anticipate that gold, silver and platinum will all continue to rise in price. There are currency-driven reasons why metal prices are going to keep rising, as well as other issues with overall supply and falling production. In terms of production, […]

Gold Price to Hit $5,000 in 24 Months & Silver $166

Today Egon von Greyerz told King World News that central planners may very well fail at their attempts to save some troubled banks. Von Greyerz also surprised KWN by predicting gold will climb to $5,000 and that silver will hit $166 in the next 24 months. Egon von Greyerz is founder and managing partner at Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland.

So we will […]

Gold Prices decline further as “crunch time” arrives for Greece but Gold now more of a Safe Haven than in Nov and Dec

Gold Prices continued to fall Monday morning in London, hitting $1713 per ounce by lunchtime – 2.8% down on last week’s high – as stocks and commodities also ticked lower, while US Treasury bonds gained. Silver Prices dropped to $33.09 per ounce – 3.9% down on the high from last week – as uncertainty grew over the long-running Greek debt issue. Gold Prices began their downward move on Friday following the publication of better-than-expected US nonfarm jobs data. Stock markets by contrast rallied immediately following the release. “[The fall] may serve as a warning of an interim top,” reckons Russell Browne, technical analyst at bullion bank Scotia Mocatta, adding “there is key support at […]

Indian Investors Keen to Buy Gold and Silver

Following growing interest from small investors in India, Indian Commodity Exchange, which started operations in late 2009, is to soon introduce micro volumes of gold and silver contracts of up to 1 kilo each, writes MineWeb‘s Shivom Seth in Mumbai. The Exchange is a screen-based on-line derivatives exchange for commodities. At the end of last year, it had recorded one of its highest volumes in physical delivery of bullion (gold and silver) on its platform. “With the spurt in the demand of gold and silver in recent times, commodity exchange trading in these precious metals has surged in India, which is arguably the world’s largest bullion market. Delivery as a percentage of average […]

Bernanke determined to protect US economy

Bullish US retail sales figures for January and “hours worked” stats for the last quarter encouraged further gains in stocks commodities yesterday. The $82bn Glencore/Xstrata merger and the chatter surrounding the Facebook IPO are also helping sentiment, with many no doubt hoping that this is indicates it’s “business as usual” at the financial markets. Precious metals continue to benefit from the move away from the perceived “safety” of the US dollar, with the gold price breaking above resistance at $1,750 and silver temporarily moving above $34. Not coincidentally, the rise in gold and silver yesterday coincided with a press conference given by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who once again […]

Gold Bulls unable to break through resistance

Gold Bulls unable to break through resistance

Today’s payrolls number, something which I might add is more akin to an Alice in Wonderland creation, was the factor responsible for the selling in both gold and in silver. The thinking was that if the economy is gathering steam at such a fast clip as the numbers suggest, then any notion of additional QE3 is a pipe dream. That means no Dollar debasement and little to fear on the inflation front so out came the sellers in the gold market. It also did not help the bullish cause that the market failed at a critical technical resistance level. Between the two developments, longs who have had a nice run […]

Bernanke Lends Support to Gold Prices but strong US jobs data sees Gold slip from 11 Wk High

Dollar Gold Prices fell back below $1750 per ounce while stock markets jumped higher immediately following the release of better-than-expected US jobs data on Friday. The Bureau of Labor Statistics nonfarm payrolls report, published on Friday, shows that the US added a net 243,000 nonagricultural private sector jobs last month. In addition, both November and December’s nonfarm figures were revised upwards. The unemployment rate fell to 8.3%, down from 8.5% the previous month. Silver Prices also fell following the nonfarm announcement, while the US Dollar saw an immediate gain against major currencies such as the Pound, Euro and Yen. Earlier on Friday Dollar Gold Prices hit their highest level in 11 weeks at $1762 per […]

Euro Gold comments

Euro Gold comments

Once again, as has been the recent pattern in the gold market, gold priced in terms of the Euro, or “EuroGold”, is putting in a very strong showing in today’s trading session. If you note on the weekly chart, it has moved to within about 32 euros of its former all time high in price. Many traders/investors may be dismissing European Sovereign debt issues, but the gold market certainly has one eye on it.I want to see how this market acts now that we are moving into these regions as this will be a decent barometer of sentiment towards the woes surrounding Europe. Any further escalation of issues associated with […]

Silver Price forecast and the shift to measuring wealth in Gold Ounces instead of Dollars

Silver Price forecast and the shift to measuring wealth in Gold Ounces instead of Dollars

The debt-based monetary system creates an illusion of wealth. It allows for claims on real goods to significantly exceed the actual amount of real goods. You then have a number of people believing they have wealth, since they have claims (pieces of paper or tokens) showing that they have these real assets, whereas, in reality, if everyone was to claim the real goods, there would not be enough to go around. The high debt levels, in some way, represent the extent to which there are more claims than the actual underlying real assets. During the period of credit extension – that has been for at least 80 years – most […]

The Gold Price Recovery

The Gold Price Recovery

We know gold is in a historic bull market because: A) Western governments have taken on huge debts and unfunded liabilities that cannot be paid back with sound, honest money (“real money,” gold, rises as a result). And B) the relatively poor countries of Asia are growing richer. They have a centuries-old cultural affinity for gold and silver. And they are buying huge amounts of gold. These “big drivers” have allowed gold to register 11 consecutive years of higher prices. Despite that historic run, there are many skeptics of gold and its bull market. Although these skeptics have been wrong for years, they gleefully claimed the gold bull market was […]

Silver to Break $100 This Year & Gold Bull on the Move

With gold and silver off to an incredibly strong start for 2012, today King World News interviewed acclaimed money manager Stephen Leeb, Chairman & Chief Investment Officer of Leeb Capital Management. Leeb surprised KWN by predicting that silver will hit $100 this year. But first, here is what Leeb had to say about Bill Fleckenstein’s comments on KWN earlier today about the public coming into the gold market: “I think (Bill) Fleckenstein is totally correct. The kind of environment he’s talking about is the one I alluded to a little bit earlier, namely the 1970s, where we did have this kind of stagflation. In the mid 70s we had very […]

Gold Chart

Gold bulls breached resistance at $1750 but have been unable to keep the market ABOVE that price. That will be necessary for them to set up a run towards $1775- $1780 where a major upside resistance level is located. There is a bit of weakness in Euro Gold today which is coming off of the rather large rally in the Euro in today’s session. That rally sent the Dollar down below critical support at the 79 level on the USDX but that market has rebounded back above 79 thus far. A close below 78.80 should set the Dollar up for a drop towards 78. It is indeed fascinating to watch […]

Gold knocking on the door of resistance at $1750

Gold knocking on the door of resistance at $1750

One thing in particular that really stands out to me in today’s trading session is the resilience of the gold market even as the safe haven trades were being put back on by a decent sized contingent of traders. The Euro got knocked down about 50 points and the US Dollar saw a pop higher as traders were expressing signs of nervousness over both Greece and now Portugal. Additionally, the long bond rallied up nearly a full point and is once again at the top end of a trading range that is now three months in duration. This combined with the fact that Euro Gold is extremely strong tells us […]
