October 7, 2016 | Gold’s, Miners’ Stops Run

Gold, silver, and their miners’ stocks plummeted out of the blue this week, shattering their bull-market uptrends.

September 30, 2016 | Silver Way Undervalued

After rocketing higher mid-year, silver has spent most of the third quarter drifting sideways to lower.

September 23, 2016 | Gold Unleashed by Fed

Gold surged sharply this week after the Yellen Fed yet again chickened out on raising its benchmark interest rate.

July 22, 2016 | Silver Bull Faces Correction

Silver’s young bull market got off to a typically-slow start, lagging gold’s own new bull. But recently the white metal surged to catch up in a record summer rally. That left silver very overbought and facing near-term correction risks led by a record futures selling overhang and weak late-summer seasonals. But this strengthening bull still […]

July 15, 2016 | Gold’s Record Selling Overhang

Gold’s mighty new bull market this year has been amazing, the result of heavy buying by investors and speculators alike. But these latter traders have pumped so much capital into gold futures that this metal now faces a record selling overhang.

June 24, 2016 | Gold Summer-Doldrums Risk

Gold’s recent weakness has dampened bullish sentiment, but the entire precious-metals complex has actually enjoyed record early-summer strength.  The summer doldrums have always been a vexing time for gold, silver, and the stocks of their miners.  Without any recurring seasonal demand surges in June and July, sideways-to-lower drifts are common in this seasonally-weakest time before […]

June 17, 2016 | Gold-Stock Summer Breakout?

The red-hot gold stocks surged again this week in an apparent early-summer breakout. This strong buying is defying their seasonally-weak odds this time of year.

Such unprecedented gold-stock strength in early June highlights how undervalued the miners remain relative […]

June 10, 2016 | Massive Gold Investment Buying 2

Gold’s strong gains so far this year have been overwhelmingly fueled by one dominant driver, massive investment buying.
