November 1, 2018 | Is Gold Turning a Corner?

I’m getting ready for my trip to the New Orleans Investment Conference, so I’ll keep this brief. Gold, and gold miners, are turning a corner. And I’ll prove it to you in two charts. First, a look at a monthly chart of gold. Most analysts don’t look at this precious metal on a time frame this […]

October 30, 2018 | Golden Idols, and Losing Faith in the Fed

Hello from Sarasota. I’m here because my mother, Tess, just had knee replacement surgery and she’s stuck in rehab for a while. It’s always a pleasure to visit Mom, and now she can’t run away from me. Ha! Anyway, though I’m on the road, I am still watching the markets. And you know how I’ve […]

October 28, 2018 | A Golden Key Can Open Any Door

I’ve pounded the table about gold lately. You can read examples here and here. While gold has moved higher, gold miners are still grinding along in second gear. The good news is we’re about to see them shift into overdrive. The door is opening to potentially massive profit potential. A door that opens with a […]

October 26, 2018 | ‘For the Love of God! Buy Gold!’

The bears are sounding the Trumpets of Doom on Wall Street. And for all those investors curled up in the fetal position under their desks, I want to offer a way out. A solution I can prove to you here today. That solution: Buy gold. Sure, gold went down on Wednesday after rallying on Monday. […]

October 23, 2018 | Are You Ready for Gold’s Next Surge?

I just put my Supercycle Investor subscribers into a new gold pick. And my Wealth Supercycle (monthly) subscribers have one coming up in their next issue, which hits their inboxes at noon Eastern on Friday. Am I too early? I don’t think so. For one thing, our previous precious metals picks are doing well. For another, I have two […]

October 21, 2018 | Write, Wrong and Sean

I get letters from readers concerned about my language. For example, one nice person wrote in to say: Hi, Sean, love your writing style and focused analysis. Am a subscriber of the Supercycle Investorand Wealth Supercycle. Recommend a couple of changes to reflect the more enlightened times we are in. Instead of “leprosy” (suffering is not of […]

October 16, 2018 | The Shoot-out at the Gold Corral

We’re heading toward a Wild West shootout between the U.S. dollar and gold. Somebody’s wrong. Somebody’s going to get hurt. And somebody’s going to get rich. I’d rather be in that last group. How about you? Let’s start with the highty-mighty U..S dollar. It has been rangebound since May. But underneath the surface, there’s a […]

October 11, 2018 | Gotta Run, My Portfolio is on Fire!

By the time you read this, the market will have closed out another volatile trading day. This is all follow-through from Wednesday, when the market took a plunge off a cliff into the biggest sell-off since February. This raises the question, what should you be doing now? How do you preserve wealth? How can you […]

October 7, 2018 | Russia Holds a Nuclear Revolver to Our Heads

There’s a hostage situation developing right now. You haven’t heard about it on the news. But that’s because the media is chasing the scandal of the week while serious crises bubble, unnoticed, in the background. And one of those crises — a nuclear crisis — is inching toward critical. In this hostage crisis, it’s like […]

September 20, 2018 | 3 Red-Hot Charts on Gold and Silver

I called a bottom in gold and silver about a month ago. The problem is that miners didn’t listen — they kept going lower. Well, that’s changed. Miners are now leading the metals higher. Is that bullish for metals? You can bet your silver buttons it is. I’ll show you why in three charts. Here’s […]

September 18, 2018 | An American State Becomes the Newest “Member” of OPEC

We have met the newest “member” of OPEC — and it is one of America’s 50 states. That’s just one of the wild forces pushing the oil markets around. It’s going to make oil prices more volatile … but could also put more profits in your pocket. Here’s the scoop: North Dakota pumped 1.27 million […]

September 13, 2018 | Trump’s Secret Order Could Send Gold Soaring

Did President Donald Trump give his economic advisers an order that could smash the value of the U.S. dollar? And send the price of gold soaring? You bet he did, according to a new book by legendary Washington reporter Bob Woodward. In his new book on the Trump White House, Woodward reports that, early in […]

September 8, 2018 | Gold Miners as You’ve Never Seen Them Before

Everyone hates gold miners now. I don’t blame them. After all, gold miners just hit a 52-week low. They have been down so long, they don’t know which way is up. But there’s something about gold miners that is up. Something that should interest a select breed of investors. I’m talking about dividends. Specifically, the forward dividend […]

September 1, 2018 | This Superhero of Commodities is an Unstoppable Force

If you’re a fan of Marvel comics — or your kids or grandkids are — then you know about Juggernaut. A nemesis of the X-Men, he’s featured in a couple of movies as a huge guy in an improbably large helmet. Image Credit: Wikipedia/Marvel Juggernaut’s superpower is that he is an unstoppable force. Once he […]

August 26, 2018 | This is What a Gold Market Cliff Dive Looks Like

The guy who is managing your money … what’s he doing in the gold market right now? Because I’ll tell ya — way, way too many money managers are making a one-sided bet that gold will go down. Here’s a chart I snagged off my Bloomberg terminal. You’ll see the price of gold (in orange, […]

August 21, 2018 | Gold: What Would Patton Do?

There are many words investors might use to describe the current gold market. Most of them are unprintable here. But I have one word that should describe gold investors now. At least, those investors who want to make money. And that word is “audacious.” Be bold! Dare to go where others fear to tread. It […]

August 12, 2018 | A Camel is Going to Eat Your Walle

The Bedouins have an old saying that goes: “Once the camel’s nose is in your tent, the rest of the camel can’t be far behind.” Folks, the camel’s nose is in your tent. Maybe you didn’t even know you were camping. But I’m speaking metaphorically. That camel is inflation. His nose is in your tent. […]

July 29, 2018 | Run from Homebuilders Like the House is on Fire!

I have nothing against homebuilders per se. I wish them well. But the chart is painting a forbidding picture. If you own them, you might consider exiting or at least hedging those investments. Just look at the SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF (NYSE: XHB). The babbling heads on CNBC have pounded the table on this one recently, […]

July 26, 2018 | The Next Oil Crisis Looms — What You Need to Know in One Chart

There is a crisis moving toward the oil markets now, like a crocodile hunting a bunch of swimmers at the beach. It barely makes ripple on the surface of the water. But man, can it bite. I’ll explain. You know that President Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani are in a war of words. First, […]

July 24, 2018 | Gold Extremes Scream Bullish Reversal

The market hates gold right now. Hates it! I’m OK with that, though. That’s because gold and gold miners are going to pull off a massive rally when you least expect it. Let me show you two reasons why. This shows that short positions in gold are at a record high. That’s according to the […]

July 15, 2018 | Where to Find Potential Trade War Profits

The trade war is on. Oh, it’s on like Donkey Kong! And while President Trump is handing out heaping helpings of tariff tough talk to Mexico, Canada and Europe, he’s saved his special ire for China. This could affect your investments a lot. I’ll explain. President Trump just announced another 10% hike on $200 billion […]

July 8, 2018 | A Giant is Waking, With Humongous Profits Ahead

Man, I love catching a big move early. And there’s a metal that is just making a turn out of a long, brutal bear market right now. It’s not gold. It’s not platinum. Nope, this metal glows in the dark. It is still moving slowly, like a giant rousing from a deep slumber. Investors who […]

July 3, 2018 | Will Gasoline Prices Drive You Crazy This Summer?

When it comes to gas prices, you can’t blame consumers for not knowing whether they’re coming or going, due to all the geopolitical problems bubbling to the surface. But there IS good news, at least here in the short term, for the 31 million Americans hitting the road this holiday week. And for the rest […]

June 27, 2018 | Why ‘Boring’ is a Good Setup for Gold

Gold prices traded sideways for the first part of the year, and have been rolling downhill slowly since May. It’s very disappointing for gold bulls. Worse than that, it’s boring. But this also may be a setup for some extraordinary gains. Why? Because gold’s snooze-walk to lower prices not seen since late last year is […]

June 20, 2018 | Psst! Hey, Buddy! Buy Oil Stocks! 3 Ways to Play the Coming Surge

Oil markets have seen a bull market in bearishness recently, with one market wag after another coming out to call a top. The prices of oil-leveraged companies didn’t wait, falling hard and fast. And now, you have a great opportunity … to go long those very same stocks. Here’s the scoop … Russia and Saudi […]
