If you see someone trying to draw technical CRB conclusions across mid-2005 without using the CCI, know you are being misled. Odds are the analyst is merely naïve, but in some cases the false witness may be intentional to further the analyst’s own hidden agenda. You can’t thrive and trade optimally during a secular bull without a comparable and accurate yardstick to measure its entire bull-to-date performance. Full Story

As our economic ship continues to spring leaks, the goldilocks crowd still clings to the false belief that the Fed can easily keep us afloat with a few more rate cuts. This comfort has sustained many upbeat forecasts despite overwhelming evidence of an unfolding economic and monetary catastrophe of historic proportions. Full Story

The year 2008 will be the year that THINGS JUST PLAIN BREAK. It will be a truly deadly year, unavoidably lethal to the US Economy and especially to the US banking sector. Nothing has been repaired. Full Story

I think what I regard as the quote of the year as far as gold goes explains it best. Rob Kirby stated, “Isn’t it amazing how we can have a four billion negative miss on the Trade report, import prices higher than expected (inflationary), zero reaction in the bond market, gold getting pummeled and the US dollar going higher? I better not drop my coffee cup in amazement – it might fall up!” Full Story

By: David Vaughn, Gold Letter - 3 January, 2008

Well, according to gold bears gold was supposed to go down.

Instead it is going up. Makes no sense, huh? I’m really not a nut to get hung up over the gold price. I merely see the price as a reaction to events happening around us.

Gold has done a reasonable job of tracking widening credit spreads between Libor rates and Treasury bills, and acting as a safe haven in a time of risk-aversion in the stock markets. Yet the same sophisticated bankers that bought $1.8 trillion of toxic sub-prime mortgages over the past few years are now locking in 10-year bond yields below the inflation rate, even though hyper-inflation might lie on the horizon. Full Story

By: Captain Hook, Treasure Chests - 3 January, 2008

There’s no reason to be short the stock market from a seasonal perspective anymore. And with all the giveaways these days, along with apparent ample money supply, again, if contemplating participation in the stock market, without a doubt the ‘rational man’ would be compelled to be long given it appears authorities have the subprime mess under control – right? Full Story

By: Adrian Ash - 3 January, 2008

Want a racing certainty for the coming year? Central banks everywhere will either cut or hold interest rates, making the currency markets a suck of ever-shrinking real worth. Full Story

By: Chris Powell, Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc. - 3 January, 2008

Despite the FBI's raid on its offices in Indiana and mint in Idaho and the seizure of its inventory seven weeks ago, Liberty Dollar is back in business, taking orders for 2008-dated medallions and promising delivery around the end of this month. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 3 January, 2008

Now you know just a teensy, weensy part of the reason why the Fed is creating so much money and credit; they have to, just to pay the interest on the debt! All of which will turn into, I am sorry to say, inflation in prices. Full Story

By: James Howard Kunstler & The Daily Reckoning Crew - 2 January, 2008

*** Looking in the rearview to discern what's in front of us…more bad news for the dollar…

*** Gold touches $860 an ounce…unsettling data from the manufacturing sector…

*** No bottom for the housing market…a positive year for the markets?…and more! Full Story

By: Julian Phillips, Gold Forecaster - 2 January, 2008

Manipulation / Management of market prices is an integral part of the structure of all markets all institutions and all nations. The system demands it. But eventually market forces will and do overcome all but the most stringent of actions by government and when they impose such stringency, eventually they do pay a heavy price. The path of the gold price over the last three years and more are proof positive of this. Full Story

By: Steven Saville, Speculative Investor - 2 January, 2008

There's a good chance that the price of copper will drop to lower levels over the next few weeks, but the price decline from the early-October high of around US$3.80/pound to the current level of US$2.95 has removed a lot of the short-term downside risk. Full Story

By: Ned W. Schmidt, CFA,CEBS - 2 January, 2008

GOLD WINS! PAPER EQUITIES LOSE! The headlines for investing in 2007, and the previous ten years, can now be written. Forget all the other drivel about what happened in the markets in 2007. Gold won! That's all you really need to know. Gold beat paper equities for the one year, for the five years, and for the past ten years. Absolutely no way purveyors of paper equities can paper over their miserable performance. Full Story

By: Clif Droke - 2 January, 2008

The year 2007 was marked by pessimism, doom and gloom, and a never-ending fusillade of fear. The mainstream press never tired of hypnotizing into believing the stock market would collapse, a downfall which never materialized. Full Story

By: Ted Butler - 2 January, 2008

Over the years, I have tried to make the case for investing in silver, by comparing it to other commodities, gold and even raw land. I believe those comparisons (all of which favor silver) are as valid as ever. Today, I will try to convince you about the merits of silver by comparing it with common stocks. I will attempt to demonstrate why silver will be a better long-term investment than virtually all common stocks. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 2 January, 2008
