By: Julian D. W. Phillips, Gold/Silver Forecaster - Global Watch - 31 July, 2009

Some sage gold watchers are expecting a major $ devaluation before the end of the year! Some say it could be any day now. Certainly the fundamentals have pointed that way, as we have discussed for some time now, this despite the repeated “Strong $ Policy” statement from this and the last Administration. Full Story

By: The Gold Report and Bob Moriarty - 31 July, 2009 founder Bob Moriarty never fails to get a rise out of The Gold Report readers, simultaneously raising hackles and awareness. In this interview, his fifth with us since last November, he rails against continuing business, media and government shenanigans. He prophesizes bankruptcy, riots and revolution. But he also sees a bit of silver lining in the thunderheads, predicting “a lot of surprises to the upside” in the resources sector. Full Story

Have you heard the great news? The recession is over! It’s true; I saw it on TV. Why fret about growing unemployment lines when banks are paying big-time bonuses again? Full Story

By: Scott Wright, Zeal Intelligence LLC - 31 July, 2009

There is no denying gold’s store-of-value relevance throughout the history of the world. It has been and will always be the ultimate form of currency. Even today gold’s alluring and timeless qualities transcend every political, social, and monetary boundary that man puts into place. Gold’s core fundamentals will forever be rock solid. Full Story

By: Deepcaster - 31 July, 2009

Typical Investors are understandably concerned that they not suffer a repeat of the Fall, 2008 when their portfolios were devastated by 30% or 40% or even 50% in the Market Crash. Here we lay out key Strategic Guidelines which not only allow one to estimate the likely timing and direction of The Next MegaMove, but also are aimed at profiting from it. Full Story

By: Michael S. Rozeff - 31 July, 2009

Mr. Bernanke is the world’s premier central banker. He is a very smart man with a stellar academic record. He has carried the ways of the seminar into the FED. He thinks about central banking a great deal, and he lets us know what he thinks. Full Story

By: David Morgan, Silver Investor - 31 July, 2009

One of the questions I am asked most frequently is, “Where can I invest in precious metals to maximize returns?” The answer is not as straightforward as one might expect. Full Story

By: R. D. Bradshaw - 31 July, 2009

Many gold and precious metals advocates have developed a hope or anticipation that the status of gold and precious metals will change if the Chinese put their feet down and start buying gold instead of US treasuries. This Goldsmiths will examine one key reason why this has not happened and may not happen in the immediate future. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 31 July, 2009

I was reading Michael J. Panzner’s book When Giants Fall, a scary-yet-scholarly look at how the hell we got into this mess, and I was impressed with how the title When Giants Fall so perfectly describes America (the heretofore ravenous, gluttonous engine of global economics based on the fraud of an expanding fiat currency) falling on its fat, stupid face. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 31 July, 2009

Sadly, another venerable American institution has lost its way: the New York Stock Exchange. We read the other day that the Exchange is building a fast-trade hub in northern New Jersey that supposedly will help secure its future in an increasingly electronic world. But raising capital for companies that could presumably help Build a Better Tomorrow is nowhere on their agenda. Full Story

By: Greg McCoach - 30 July, 2009

If more citizens could only grasp these simple truths we may even have a chance to abolish this Fedzilla monster. There is nothing in my opinion that could be done that would have a greater immediate impact on the well being of America than ridding ourselves of this evil disgrace of an organization that was perpetrated on the American people back in 1913. Full Story

By: The Energy Report and Ryaz Shariff - 30 July, 2009

Primevest Capital Corp. President Ryaz Shariff reaffirms his long-held status as a commodity bull in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, telling us to expect significant upticks in the markets once demand resumes. Having shifted somewhat from the mining sector last year, he also talks about some of the energy plays he likes these days—from natural gas in India to oil in South America to uranium in East Africa. Full Story

By: Andrew Mickey, Q1 Publishing - 30 July, 2009

There’s no reason not to expect the growth of computer-based trading to continue. Sure, Congress will vilify speculators and hedge funds, but computer-directed trading is here to stay. So it’s not something to get overly concerned about, it’s just another market reality which successful investors will use to their advantage. Full Story

By: Michael S. Rozeff - 30 July, 2009

Gold strategy depends on age, wealth, anticipated labor income, one’s expectations, and risk preferences, among other things. A complete gold strategy covers alternative metals, alternative ways to own gold, and shares in metal and mining companies. Full Story

By: Peter J. Cooper - 30 July, 2009

Shorting US bonds and abandoning the US dollar is just too easy to be the correct strategy, remarked Bill Bonner, President and Founder of Agora Financial at its 10th annual symposium in Vancouver last week. Full Story

By: John Browne, Senior Market Strategist, Euro Pacific Capital - 30 July, 2009

In recent weeks, the financial world has been dazzled by strikingly high earnings reported by our leading investment banks... or at least what we used to call investment banks. The numbers are reminiscent of another era - the one that came to a crashing end last September. Full Story

By: Tim Iacono - 30 July, 2009

Now that a number of recent housing reports are generating some incredibly positive headlines and the global economy appears to be slowly digging its way out of an enormous hole that was created last fall when the world nearly came to an end, the burning question on the minds of millions of people is ... Has the housing market hit bottom? Full Story

By: Chris Vermeulen - 30 July, 2009

What a week so far! Everything is playing out exactly as we hoped and expected this week. We have been so close to a buy signal in gold and silver but Monday’s intraday observations saved us from a nasty trade. Full Story

By: Lorimer Wilson - 30 July, 2009

Where should we be investing what is left of our hard earned money these days? As the table below reveals having bought a basket of commodity related warrants with a minimum duration of at least 24 months at the beginning of 2009 would have been the right choice. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 30 July, 2009

Bill Bonner here at The Daily Reckoning pretty much nailed the problem when he said that “During the 2001-2007 period, credit in the United States increased by $22 trillion. The nation’s GDP increased only by $4 trillion.” Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 30 July, 2009

The lazy drift of stocks has become almost too boring to watch, although we dare not avert our eyes for fear of missing Wall Street’s next wilding spree. During the last four sessions, the broad averages have hit bottom early in the day after easing lower overnight. Full Story

By: Jim Willie CB - 29 July, 2009

The tables are fast turning against the deeply indebted USGovt officials. USA Inc is in deep trouble. Its productive engines in both finance and industry are either wrecked or sputtering, even as its debt burden grows exponentially. Debt default litters the landscape. Next its sovereign bonds will be have to be sold to some extent outside the US$ Sphere, which will put at great risk its stock, namely the USDollar itself. Let’s call them USGovt Dragon Bonds. Full Story

By: Bill Bonner, The Daily Reckoning - 29 July, 2009

Despite what you are most likely reading in the press, the folks getting bailout money are pretty sharp. They’re very good at gaming the system. More about that in a minute. First, the Dow went nowhere yesterday. Gold fell $14 to $939. And Newsweek magazine announced, “The Recession is Over.” Newsweek hedged its bets; adding that the recovery won’t be a piece of cake. Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 29 July, 2009

As we enter August we are getting closer and closer to real disruptions with the US dollar, as well as problems with the British pound, as both economies feel the sting of rising inflation within a progressive depression. The stimulus package has exhausted itself for this year so the economy in the US can at best stay neutral at a minus 4% of GDP. Full Story

By: Mark O'Byrne - 29 July, 2009

The fundamental tenet of investment theory and of wealth growth and preservation is diversification. In layman's terms one should not have all the proverbial eggs in the one basket. This concept is crucial both in terms of an entire investment portfolio but also in terms of the precious metals component of a properly diversified portfolio. Full Story

By: Bill Murphy, Le Metropole Cafe, Inc. - 29 July, 2009

This is one of those days I can write this portion of the MIDAS commentary before 9 AM Dallas time. Gold was just bombed for no apparent reason and has NO chance today. Unfortunately, The Gold Cabal forces, after capping the price around $956, made their move soon after trading on the Comex commenced for the reason articulated yesterday in my commentary… Full Story

By: Jordan Roy-Byrne/Trendsman - 29 July, 2009

Gold is not going to breakout anytime soon. Its relative strength or lack thereof, is the chief reason. Gold has been rising recently, only due to the positive tide in most markets. In the chart below, you can see that the various ratio charts have formed a negative divergence to Gold. Full Story

By: Adrian Douglas - 29 July, 2009

Today's hearing by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission to discuss speculation in futures markets is a sham, a kangaroo court. Notice that the concern of the CFTC is only why oil went up last year. The commission has no concern as to why oil fell so abruptly from $147 down to $35 even though Don Coxe was widely quoted at the time as saying the government had instigated a massive takedown. The commission's focus is on commodities of "finite supply" and preventing speculation. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 29 July, 2009

I had just finished Final Lockdown Mode (FLM) here at Rancho Mogambo Bunker (RMB) and was starting to relax, or as much as a guy can relax when a guy is naturally skittish, paranoid and fearful and whose symptoms include rabidly obsessive total denunciation of the disastrous Federal Reserve for creating so much money, the traitorous Congress that allowed it so that it could deficit-spend the money, and the moron American voters that elected and re-elected and re-elected such loathsome, incompetent people to Congress. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 29 July, 2009

You can see the fine hand of government at work in the homeowner rescue package that has been struggling to get off the ground since its inception last spring. The goal was to reduce foreclosures by lowering mortgage payments for homeowners who were struggling. Full Story

By: The Gold Report and Frank Holmes - 28 July, 2009

Increasing the money supply invariably leads to inflation—but that's not the only factor driving it. "Populist policies that are focused on protectionism and unionism will force inflation in America," says Frank Holmes, CEO and chief investment officer at U.S. Global Investors. Full Story

By: Bud Conrad and David Galland, Editors, The Casey Report - 28 July, 2009

Here at Casey Research, we’ve been watching the actions of foreign holders of U.S. dollars as closely as a Las Vegas pit boss watches a card player on a $1 million winning streak. Many of those in the deflation camp largely, or entirely, ignore the potential role these foreign holders may play in the drama now unfolding. But in fact, foreigners have, over the last decade, been by far the single most important source of buying for U.S. Treasuries. Full Story

By: Andrew Mickey - 28 July, 2009

We’re on the verge of something big here. What we’re on the verge of may surprise you. We’ve been waiting for the economy to show signs of life for a while now. We expected this to happen before the year was out. There were just too many catalysts for a short-term economic rebound. Full Story

By: Ceri Shepherd - 28 July, 2009

Which ever scenario eventually plays out, I can promise you one thing something has to give and quickly as a reported PE ratio of 723 on the S&P 500 is simply not sustainable. It is going to take manipulation, huge inflation or a major correction, or a combination of all 3 but something has to give. Full Story

By: Peter J. Cooper - 28 July, 2009

Rich Dad is a publishing phenomenon that most investment analysts prefer to ignore. But his common sense advice on how to manage personal finance has become a best-seller. Therefore, when he comments on a new trend then it is worth paying attention. Full Story

By: Steven Saville, Speculative Investor - 28 July, 2009

During 2001-2007 there were some hefty downward corrections in the gold sector, but although these corrections seemed dramatic in real time they didn't come close to matching either of the primary corrections that occurred during the bull market in gold stocks that began in the early 1960s and ended in 1980. However, the 2008 downturn was every bit as severe as the primary corrections of 1960-1980. Full Story

What doesn't the FED want you to know? Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 28 July, 2009

The Economist magazine, also predictably and inevitably, does not comment on this Gem Of Mogambo Economic Wisdom (GOMEW), which is to buy gold, silver and oil on the advice of the last 4,500 continuous years of the world’s economic history, particularly as it pertains to fiat currencies and the trustworthiness of governments. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 28 July, 2009

Very few Americans own gold in any form. Even though gold’s price has risen each year since 2001, about the only time we hear gold mentioned is in the ubiquitous "cash for gold" TV commercials. Don't you wonder who has any gold or jewelry left to sell? The way it’s shunned, you might think gold causes swine flu or greenhouse emissions. It is most baffling to me to see our profligate nation diligently avoiding the most rewarding investment of the last decade. Full Story

By: Jim Quinn - 27 July, 2009

The American people are like sheep being led to slaughter. Our Founding Fathers declared that the common people were in control. Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government. The time has come to abolish the corrupt system and institute a new Government.... Full Story

By: Rob Kirby - 27 July, 2009

While Mr. Brown didn’t exactly enunciate it, he might as well have said, “the advances in technology [read: the internet] also mean that our system of fractional irredeemable fiat currency [read: backed by NOTHING] practiced by Central Banks like the Federal Reserve may also soon be passé too.” This is largely due to the masses becoming informed about the world’s biggest ponzi scheme, namely, irredeemable fiat currency – forget about the warm-up acts like Madeoff and sub-prime. Full Story

By: Jason Hommel, Silver Stock Report - 27 July, 2009

I wanted to share with you just a few startling facts on Health Care in the US, but I was wondering whether my message would be "on topic". Then, the man acting as President (but who may actually be disqualified if he was not born in the US as is reporting) gave a televised national address on the subject, making this a more appropriate topic than ever. Full Story

By: Captain Hook - 27 July, 2009

America’s paper empire is slowly sinking into the sea, and all the powers that be can do about it is rearrange the deck chairs for a while as they wait for the inevitable. Increasingly, more and more people are comparing the US to Japan, and it’s 20-plus year bear market / economic doldrums, realizing try as they might, the prognosis for American is a match. Full Story

By: Theodore Butler - 27 July, 2009

Today, I write of the pending divorce I see in a relationship that the world has grown comfortable in observing for hundreds of years. As such, when it becomes obvious that the two will part ways, most will be shocked and in disbelief. Yet there will be no reconciliation and the split should prove permanent. The divorce I speak of is in the price relationship between gold and silver. Full Story

Max Keiser speaks his mind on Face-Off about Goldman Sachs, Hank Paulson, Geithner, etc. Full Story

By: Howard S. Katz - 27 July, 2009

It is, I believe, a Chinese expression, “May you live in interesting times.” Well, lucky us. We most certainly do live in interesting times. As of Friday, the U.S. dollar index closed at 78.89 (basis Sept.). The break point of the giant double top pattern in the dollar is 78 even in the cash market and 78.20 Sept. future. This difference of less than ¾ point can be covered in a day. Full Story

By: Michael S. Rozeff - 27 July, 2009

American government has one good thing about it. It has Inspector Generals. The government ignores what they say, but at least they give us a measure of truth about government. The truth these days on the extent of government bailouts is undeniably mind-boggling. It may make you feel queasy. It may set off alarm bells. Full Story

By: Neil Charnock - 27 July, 2009

Australia is a major gold producing nation and a stable political environment in which to operate mining activities. The global interest in our sector is significant and we have seen massive capital inflows into the sector during the past 18 months, both during and in contrast to very tough international credit / investment conditions. Full Story

By: Gary Tanashian - 27 July, 2009

Bonds, tech stocks, credit, housing, commodities... a would-be bubble in everything. Marc Faber, by way of Michael Panzner illustrates just how removed from any kind of sound economic foundation we became (Will They Ever Grasp the Simple Truths?) by the time the rolling bubbles of the 2003-2007 time frame had hit full throttle around mid-decade. Full Story

By: Chris Vermeulen - 27 July, 2009

Commodities are trying to hold their ground and could go either way quickly. There is a lot of chatter going on about gold and silver. I am hearing extreme theories from everyone I talk with. Generally when I see the market get jumpy we tend to see volatility increase which translates into sharp rallies or sell offs. Full Story

By: Clive Maund - 27 July, 2009

The chances of gold breaking out to new highs in the near future are rapidly diminishing as the heavy hitters who have always prevailed up to this point are dramatically ramping up their short positions. Our COT chart shows a big increase in Commercial short positions just over the week up to last Tuesday to levels that in the past have preceded major reactions in gold. Full Story

By: Przemyslaw Radomski - 27 July, 2009

This week precious metals and corresponding equities rose (as mentioned earlier) at the beginning of the week, and then have been mostly trading sideways. But, before we sink our teeth into technical analysis of the PM markets, I want to bring you a piece of news regarding the investment demand for gold. Full Story

By: Clif Droke - 27 July, 2009

One of the most talked about themes of the past few weeks was the supposedly bearish “head and shoulders” pattern in the daily chart of the S&P 500 Index. The financial press drew investors’ attention to this pattern in the most alarmist tones they could muster. A plethora of market technicians were trotted out each day to remind one and all that this “H&S top” was a precursor of a major decline, if not an outright collapse. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 27 July, 2009

As California goes, so goes the nation? We had better hope not, since the state’s economy is imploding so swiftly that it threatens to take cities and towns from Eureka to San Diego down with it. Consider the plight of El Monte, a city of 125,000 in Los Angeles County that recently cut expenditures to the bone in order to close a $9.5 million budget gap for the fiscal year begun in July.

By: John Mauldin, Millennium Wave Advisors - 26 July, 2009

A lot of bullish commentators are talking about a recovery being in the works, and they may very well be right. But it is not going to look like any recovery worthy of the name. This week we look at what I will call The Statistical Recovery. But first we take a look at what China is doing, as we continue our look at the rest of the world and ponder whether it is time to brace ourselves for an extended bout with the Muddle Through Economy*. (And yes, there is an asterisk.) Full Story

By: Gary North - 26 July, 2009

Stock market investors shrug off a disaster in our midst: mass layoffs. Investors act as though it will soon be business as usual. Companies cut costs by firing employees that have been with them for decades. Then the companies can report higher earnings from cost-cutting measures. The media then proclaim an increase in earnings. But how will these increases be sustained? How will an unemployment rate of 11% help get the economy back on its feet? Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 26 July, 2009

And speaking of inflation, the news must be Pretty Damned Bad (PDB), because inflation in prices was up, despite losses from massive inventory liquidations at fire-sale prices across the board as retailers and wholesalers scale down in response to the increasing bankruptcy of heretofore profligate American consumers and the weird, bloated, cancerous, government-centric economy that they seem to love. Full Story

By: Merv Burak, CMT - 26 July, 2009

It was actually somewhat of a BLAH week in the market. Monday was gang busters and then nothing for the rest of the week. Gold seems to be marking time waiting for the next explosion, up or down. Full Story
