Gold is now almost back to where it was in the first quarter of this year, before it went on a tear. Is this the end of the correction? Full Story

By: Edgar J. Steele - 16 June, 2006

When does a metals bull market correction get redefined as a metals bear market? It doesn't. Not these days. You are witness to the manic death throes of the dollar. You want to talk doomed? I'll show you doomed. The dollar is doomed. Both Alan Greenspan and George W. Bush have seen to that. Doomed, I tell ya. Doomed! Full Story

Another bear-squeeze like yesterday’s and some key stocks will be back up to levels worth shorting. Citigroup, for one. It soared like a condor yesterday, powered by bears who evidently stayed one day too long at the party. Here’s what the day’s action looked like 30 minute before the close: Full Story

It was fascinating to learn how many mining companies have as much as 60% of their stock held today by institutional funds. So what does this fact tell us? Well for one this reminds us that only a small number of fund managers have moved the price of gold and commodities higher. And can you imagine how high this market will climb when “Joe Six Pack” discovers commodities? Full Story

By: Axel Merk, Merk Hard Currency Fund - 15 June, 2006

Recent hawkish comments by Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Ben Bernanke caused jitters in US and global equity markets; as is the typical first reaction when there is a sense of panic in the market, US investors liquidated some of their more speculative foreign investments and repatriated the money. As a result, the dollar enjoyed an overdue rally after it had been sliding for weeks versus major currencies. Did Bernanke ring in a new era at the Fed? Will he be able to help contain inflationary pressures? And will the dollar regain its strength? Full Story

The recent plunge in the price of gold has caused shell-shocked investors to second guess their previous outlook for the metal. However, in the midst of a roller coaster market it can be very easy to lose touch with the broader perspective. With that in mind, gold’s prospects are as bright as ever, and the sharp fall likely created one of the best buying opportunities of the current bull market. Full Story

By: Deepcaster - 15 June, 2006

This Essay is the third in a series of Deepcaster's work "Juiced Numbers" regarding market and data manipulation. A primary topic of this third installment is specifically "The May and Early June Interventions" that took down gold and silver. However in order to put that takedown in context, the discussion of it is interwoven with significant excerpts from "Juiced Numbers #1and #2, Deepcaster's initial essay describing "how the government gets the statistics it wants, markets get manipulated, citizens get deluded, and worse."

Congressman Ron Paul of Texas enjoys a national reputation as the premier advocate for liberty in politics today. Dr. Paul is the leading spokesman in Washington for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies based on commodity-backed currency. Full Story

I have nothing but envy and admiration for the weasels who manipulate shares for a living, especially those of Citigroup, a stock whose seemingly helter-skelter movement on a chart can be as subtly purposeful as the queen’s peek-a-boo antics in a game of three-card monte. Concerning the “weasels,” I use the term affectionately, since I was one of them myself for twelve years, working in the trading pits as an options market maker. It was there that I realized that something I’d always been told – that the stock market is a rigged game – was absolutely true. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 14 June, 2006

Last Friday, after gobbling a handful of assorted tranquilizers washed down with coffee, my wife tied me to a chair before looking in the Wall Street Journal to see the report of new Total Reserve Bank Credit on page C 12. Cinching the last of the knots, she picks up the paper and reports "It says here that it's up $2,460." Full Story

The parachutist is confident of the large gaping abyss that is open before him. Though he can only see impenetrable darkness ahead, he is prepared to jump. He is confident that all will be well and that exhilaration rather than death will be his experience. Why is he so confident? Because others have gone before him and assured him that a bottom exists and that a soft landing is assured if handled properly. Full Story

By: Richard Benson, Specialty Finance Group, LLC - 13 June, 2006

In the years ahead, the high prices we have all seen in gold and silver will be surpassed many times over. In addition, leaving your money in short-term cash with no price risk while receiving 5 percent, looks a lot better than losing money in stocks or real estate! Suddenly, risk is a four letter word and cash is not trash. Full Story

“How should we position our assets given the dire predictions of these imminent economists and analysts who are all much of the same mind as to what may well be in store for the U.S and, indeed, the global economy very soon?” As we can see from the current financial markets in the United States and many in the world, markets are starting to unravel. Again, we have compiled a detailed and comprehensive summary of what many of these very same individuals, and others, have to say. Full Story

Looks like it’s not just the usual bunch of numbskulls who have been buying stocks at these rarefied levels. Turns out that big companies buying back their own shares have been a major source of support for the stock market in recent months. S&P-listed firms bought more than $100 billion of their own stock in the first quarter of 2006, up 22 percent from a year earlier, according to the lead story in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal.

By: Bill Murphy, GATA Chairman - 12 June, 2006

GATA has been saying all along that the central banks do not have the gold they say they have -- most likely less than half the gold listed in their reserves. The missing gold has been swapped or lent out and is not being properly accounted for as the new IMF study says it should be. Why? Because the missing gold has been used to suppress the gold price. The link between Greenspan’s gold leasing statement and the present deceptive IMF accounting for gold could not be clearer. Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 11 June, 2006

We find it of great interest that the Federal Reserve tells us whether or not they will continue to increase short—term interest rates based upon upcoming data. They have to know as we do that the data, at least from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, has been altered. The question is do they use the altered data? Does the Fed have its own unaltered data? We don’t know because the Fed won’t tell us. It is a secret, just like M3 is now a secret. The Fed has partial transparency, so it’s very difficult to discern on what they are basing their decisions. It’s certainly not completely on data as they say it is. Based upon past performance the Fed is still a year behind what has already happened in the economic and financial worlds. Full Story

Is the Fed right to be worried about inflation, or is that so last quarter? What do musty old academic papers suggest about Fed policy? And can we translate that into something that gives us a clue as to why markets around the world are in seeming lockstep on their way to the exits? (Quick, guess which market has done the best in the last month. No peeking!) Whatever happened to the diversification of our portfolios? This week we look at a wide range of topics trying to get some insights into where the markets are headed this summer. Full Story

By: Jim Otis - 11 June, 2006

Let's see if I have the big picture in proper focus. The Fed talks tough (but talking is the only thing they can do, since the essential national housing market resembles a California mansion just before the hillside it is built on slides down a slippery slope into a sea of mud and muck). The fantasy investments on Wall Street feel a draft from a brief breeze of reality, and stocks catch a long overdue case of pneumonia. And yet somehow, the precious metals babies are also sold off in sympathy with the bath water tossed out by Wall Street. The Optimist sees a near certainty that inflation and world tensions will continue to get worse, so an opportunity to buy silver and gold at temporarily reduced prices is truly wonderful and positive news.
