If you're bullish about the long term for gold and silver, it's mouthwatering to watch them undergo a major correction after taking earlier profits that added to your deployable cash. For a little historical perspective on pullbacks, consider the following charts. Full Story

For most of his time as a national political figure, Barack Obama has been careful to cloak his core socialist leanings behind a veil of pro-capitalist rhetoric. This makes strategic sense, as Americans still largely identify as pro-capitalist. However, based on his recent speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, the President appears to have reassessed the political landscape in advance of the 2012 elections. Full Story

Today’s EU summit has been billed as the best-- perhaps the last-- opportunity to save the euro. As we publish today’s essay, we still don’t know the results, and gold, like most asset classes, will react to headlines coming out of Europe. Will “Merkozy,” (ladies first), the leaders of Germany and France, be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat and save the day? Full Story

It is no surprise that Equities Market Volumes in Key Sectors have approached record lows recently. Investors are fed up both with Hot Air-No Action Politicians, and with Mega Bankers who are more interested in protecting themselves than the Sovereign Nations’ Citizens from which they profit. Full Story

TODAY is a very sad day. We believe that the markets are telling us that there is a horrible abscess in Europe, and that the Euro is the pus. We believe that fuelled by injustice, the infection of nationalism will now tear Europe apart – making outright enemies of Germany and Greece, France and Italy, the Netherlands and Spain. Full Story

The stock markets are still riddled with anxiety, with traders nervously awaiting the next shoe to drop. Will Europe fracture? Does a global recession loom? But in an apprehensive environment where fears are legion, it’s easy to lose the forest for the trees. If you can transcend the day-to-day newsflow slog for a broader perspective, the technicals of the US stock markets are actually quite bullish today. Full Story

I’ve read the following articles so many times I can just about recite both from memory. I found them years ago, there were no author’s name attached, no credit given, but anon thank you, you’ve helped keep me focused. I hope readers find both pieces as useful as I did. Full Story

A rising tide lifts all boats. This has become a popular cliché in explaining how lower taxes and relative steep rises in income for the top 1% of income earners help the economy in a broader sense. According to conventional wisdom; lower taxes, higher income and more wealth in the hands of the highest earners, lead to more investments causing the following trickle-down effect.. Full Story

There are growing fears that an economic collapse is on the way. Is this fear justified? Before we conclude that it is a by-gone conclusion and that it’s time to head for the hills, let’s first cover how and why an economy collapses. In this essay I talk about economic collapse as an “internal event”. Keep in mind that there are “external” reasons for an economy to collapse (such as war and/or natural events such as earthquakes etc.) Full Story

By: Adam Brochert - 9 December, 2011

It's more subtle and sophisticated than "buy Gold and get rich." But in the end, not much. Traders and speculators are always looking for the edge - much like the hares racing the tortoise. But the tortoise method of investing for this secular cycle is important and should comprise a significant portion of one's portfolio regardless of your preferred time horizon when investing and/or speculating/trading. Full Story

By: George Smith - 9 December, 2011

When a major fractional-reserve breakdown occurred in 1907, Thomas Woodrow Wilson, then president of Princeton, endeared himself to the banking movement by declaring that "all this trouble could be averted if we appointed a committee of six or seven public-spirited men like J. P. Morgan to handle the affairs of our country." Full Story

There are two deficits that we hear about most: the federal government's deficit and the balance of payments of the United States. They are linked, but they are very different in their effects. The federal deficit is seen by Keynesians as mostly a benefit and by Austrians as mostly a liability, and for the same reason: higher government spending. Full Story

By: Hubert Moolman - 8 December, 2011

I think that buying silver today is like buying gold for $554 an ounce. Let me explain: As I am writing, silver is currently trading at about 65.2% (32.6/50) of its 1980 high. If gold was trading at 65.2% of its 1980 high, it would be trading at $554 (0.652*850). Full Story

Comex Gold has taken some wicked turns in recent days, none more promising than Tuesday’s 1705.70 low. We were looking to buy near there ourselves using a technically derived bid at 1702.60. However, when the futures trampolined from a low that lay $3 above our bid, we came up empty-handed. Even so, from a technical standpoint the price action was encouraging, since we regard any trend up or down that fails to reach its “Hidden Pivot” target as the last gasp of that trend. Full Story

We are pleased to announce the re-launching of our entirely new and websites on December 15th. The sites have been re-designed and built from the ground up to create an exciting, new, clean look and feel, backed by a powerful new website engine that will support our record traffic demands. The new aesthetics will deliver greater balance with well-organized gold, silver and financial information along with many new features providing great usability. Full Story

By: Jeff Clark, Casey Research - 7 December, 2011

To demonstrate the effect of currency dilution, we've developed a tool for re-indexing popular indices from dollars to gold. Doing so provides a more accurate picture of the dilution of investments made in dollars (and would work just as well in euros or other currencies). We use gold in grams so the indices won't be priced in decimals. Full Story

By: The Gold Report and Bob Moriarty - 7 December, 2011

Despite the "fugly" future that Bob Moriarty, founder of, talks about in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he's downright bullish on the U.S. dollar for the time being. He says it's not only a safe haven but "the best investment to be in for the last six months." As for equities, Moriarty makes it clear that he takes no pleasure in watching a company lose 25% of its value in a week when there is nothing wrong with the company. At the same time, he's alert to bargains. Any time you have the opportunity to buy cash at a discount, he advises, "throw money at it." Full Story

By: Przemyslaw Radomski - 7 December, 2011

It may take some time for people to figure this out, but the problem in Europe is not liquidity. The problem in Europe is sovereign debt. If we are over our heads with debt because we have spent more than we make, giving us a line of credit will not get us out of the hole. One wonders if any amount of funding support and bailouts will be enough to restore confidence as long as there are lingering doubts about the solvency of Italy, Spain and some of the other eurozone economies. Full Story

By: Adrian Ash, BullionVault - 7 December, 2011

UNLIKE us – who are so smart today – ancient folk in ancient times used to believe the oddest things about how the world worked. The Japanese, for instance, long thought that earthquakes were caused by a giant catfish, shuffling and shifting whenever the great god of Kashima forgot to keep his foot on a heavy stone which held the beast down, deep beneath the coast of Honshu. Full Story

By: Goldrunner - 7 December, 2011

The story of the developing gold tsunami will be remembered as the Paper Currency inflation gains speed and volume driving the price of Gold into the next more parabolic leg on the chart as the dollar devaluation accelerates in an attempt to deflate away the massive debts world-wide. Full Story

By: Daniel R. Amerman, CFA - 7 December, 2011

Standard & Poor's missed the point when they "only" put 15 Eurozone nations on credit watch for possible near term downgrades. In this highly interconnected world - most of Europe can't be put on credit watch without putting much of the world on credit watch, with the United States being particularly vulnerable to global "contagion" risks. Full Story

By: Chris Martenson - 7 December, 2011

What we care about most here is helping people adjust and adapt -- happily, profitably, and safely -- to what is likely to be a very different future. Our framework centers on the idea that humanity is facing a set of predicaments quite unlike anything else in the history books. Because this time there are no borders to cross in search of safety; the entire world is involved. Full Story

By: Ron Hera - 7 December, 2011

The Hera Research Newsletter (HRN) is proud to present a vitally important interview with Hugo Salinas-Price, Founder, Director and Honorary President of Grupo Elektra, S.A.B. de C.V., which is now run by his son, Ricardo Salinas-Pliego. Grupo Elektra is a part of Grupo Salinas, which owns businesses in the television industry, the telecommunications sector, banking and financial services, and other industries. Full Story

By: Graham Summers - 7 December, 2011

Things have gotten so heated that Bernanke even wrote a letter to policymakers defending the Fed and stating that the media’s [Bloomberg] recent reporting of the Fed’s actions contained “egregious errors.” The significance of this CANNOT be overstated. This is a man who just a year or two ago was so arrogant of his power that he committed blatant perjury in front of Congress (the famed “debt monetization” lie)… NOW writing a letter to politicians whining about how unfair the media has been regarding his monetary actions.

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 7 December, 2011

Even the middle of the road journalists are beginning to question Europe’s elected and appointed leadership. This past Monday the plan for the euro zone was laid out for a final capitulation to world government. The financial crisis has been handled from behind the scenes by the Fed, so that Germany’s Chancellor Merkel and France’s President can concentrate on more important matters, namely the final federalization of the euro zone to be followed by the entrapment of the remainder of the European Union. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 7 December, 2011

No sooner had Merkel and Sarkozy put the finishing touches on the latest bailout rumors than Standard & Poor’s was threatening to downgrade the debt of 15 of the 17 euroland nations. Recall that as the week began, France and Germany were talking up the latest supposed solution to the debt crisis. Full Story

By: Julian D. W. Phillips, Gold/Silver Forecaster - Global Watch - 6 December, 2011

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve noticed the variance of the gold Fixing price and the open market price. In the past, the two tended to dovetail giving the appearance of synchronicity. But in the last week, open market prices have tried to take the gold price down only to be pulled up by the price established at the London gold Fixing. There is a structural change happening in the market, bringing the relevance of the physical market to a far more important pricing role that it has had before. Full Story

By: Stewart Thomson - 6 December, 2011

Note the similarity of GDX & GDXJ to the Dow in the basing area, but note also that there has been almost no correction from the highs, despite approaching the 12,250 zone, and that is very bullish technical action. Most of the gold community put “only” about 10,000 times too much hope in the central bank propaganda about saving Europe last week, and now are in financial shock. Stay focused on the “steady as she goes” central bank gold accumulation programs, not propaganda about gold parabolas and pipedreams in the sky. I’m locked and loaded for GDX to rip through the $61 highs, like a chainsaw going through dollar bug butter, and the only question is, are you onside? Full Story

By: Steve Saville, The Speculative Investor - 6 December, 2011

A week seldom goes by without us reading somewhere that the US dollar is in danger of losing its reserve currency status. We are now going to argue that the US$ is actually in no such danger, because it can't lose what it doesn't have. Full Story

By: Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT - 6 December, 2011

Gold is higher by 20% this year but the large cap gold stocks (GDX) are down 6% while the junior gold stocks (ETF) are down 25%. With Gold higher by 20%, we’d normally expect the gold stocks to be up 50% and more. Needless to say 2011 has been a difficult year for gold bugs. Its been a near disaster for most junior gold stocks. That being said, there are important but often ignored reasons why the gold shares have underperformed this year and reasons to consider why a big move may be only months away. Full Story

By: Peter Cooper - 6 December, 2011

When the IMF brought out its big guns to support the global banking system last week the tiny silver market was all but forgotten. We doubt it will be quiet for much longer. Silver is a monetary metal. One Roman denarius sells for about $70 these days. You can still pick them up in the antiques centre here in Salisbury. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 6 December, 2011

As we went to press Monday night, February Gold was fixing to stop out a bullish position we’d advised that produced explosive, although perhaps fleeting, gains. For subscribers who acted on the initial recommendation made here last week, there was a theoretical profit of nearly $6000 per contract at recent highs near $1767. Full Story

With a tsunami of interest in the future prospects of gold and silver mining companies (and their stock prices as a result) I am publishing an updated version of my one-of-a-kind proprietary index of commodity-related companies with long-term warrants (CCWI) and its sub-category of just gold and silver companies with long-term warrants (GSWI). This article gives you some insights into the ‘secret world’ of warrants and slices and dices the make-up of both indices identifying the constituents of each for your edification. Full Story

In the world of finance, there is always talk of bubbles – mortgage bubbles, tech stock bubbles, junk bond bubbles. But bubbles don’t develop only in financial markets. In recent years, there's been another one quietly inflating, not capturing the attention of most observers. Full Story

By: The Gold Report and Jay Taylor - 5 December, 2011

Jay Taylor believes the biggest challenge facing the U.S.—deflation—could mean a better year, or even decade, for junior gold stocks. Taylor, editor of Jay Taylor's Gold, Energy & Tech Stocks, has ridden some equities to the bottom of this punishing market and is ready to pile more cash into small gold companies. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he explains why market sentiment hasn't shaken his faith. Full Story

By: John Browne, Senior Market Strategist at Euro Pacific Capital - 5 December, 2011

In order to win for itself as many economic cards as possible, we can expect Germany to continue playing economic brinksmanship. The high stakes game will continue creating extreme market volatility. Various bodies such as the Fed, ECB, EU, IMF and G-20 likely will continue to issue calming statements in the hope that more smoke and mirrors will cover a building crisis of confidence in paper currencies and sovereign debt. Meanwhile, greatly increased liquidity threatens high future inflation. In such an environment, precious metals remain a hedge against inflation and a form of insurance against possible catastrophe. Full Story

By: Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Precious Metals - 5 December, 2011

From World War II until very recently, the West - specifically Europe and the United States - was on a course for greater centralization, greater integration, and greater economic intervention. But this consensus is breaking down. In Europe, the euro has gone from steadily adding new members to now facing the prospect of having its weaker members quit. In America, the US Congressional Supercommittee has now officially failed in its mandate to bring even meager cuts to the bleeding US deficit. Full Story

By: Daniel R. Amerman, CFA - 5 December, 2011

There is a hidden and deeply unfair "tax" that is costing US savers in excess of $500 billion per year. Through forcing interest rates far below the rate of inflation, the government has effectively created a tax on savings that not only takes all real interest income, but quite deliberately confiscates wealth from tens of millions of savers every year - for the direct benefit of the government. Full Story

In his latest report, Samuel Kress of SineScope reviewed the 120-year cycle and broke it down into its constituent cycles. For the sake of our long time readers, I’m providing my own breakdown of the 120-year cycle and its effects on the past, present and future of the financial market and economy. Full Story

By: Clive Maund - 5 December, 2011

It is now evident that the gold price has been trapped in a narrowing trading range since its early September pre-plunge peak - a Symmetrical Triangle. This type of Triangle, which indicates a state of collective indecision, can lead to a breakout in either direction, depending on what fundamental developments ensue. The main reason that this large standoff pattern has developed at this juncture, in addition to that of an overbought condition having developed that needed correcting, is that the market has been unable to determine which of the primary economic conditions of deflation or inflation is set to take precedence. Full Story

By: Dr. Ron Paul, U.S. Congressman - 5 December, 2011

In response to pressure from Wall Street, the White House and central banks in Europe, the Federal Reserve last week drastically cut interest rates for currency swaps to benefit troubled European banks. This will flood world markets with more dollars and will soon mean rising prices for every American at the grocery store. This extra liquidity will temporarily ease the cash crunch for irresponsible bankers, but in the long run it will make the situation much worse for consumers all over the world. Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 5 December, 2011

Do we need central banks at all? It’s a good question. We have had the Federal Reserve since 1913 and their management has been a disaster for Americans and a wealth builder for its owners, the Wall Street banks. It has also allowed the financial sector to control our country. It is the seat of elitist power. The Fed has debauched the US dollar via their monopoly and enriched their owners beyond belief. Any entity that has to resort to the subterfuge of using a cloaking term, such as quantitative easing has to be a scam. Full Story

By: John Mauldin, Millennium Wave Advisors - 5 December, 2011

It is now common to use the term bazooka when referring the actions of governments and central banks as they try to avert a credit crisis. And this week we saw a coordinated effort by central banks to use their bazookas to head off another 2008-style credit disaster. The market reacted as if the crisis is now over and we can get on to the next bull run. Yet, we will see that it wasn't enough. Full Story

By: Hubert Moolman - 5 December, 2011

It is well established that there is a high correlation between how the price of gold and silver trades. Thanks to this relationship between gold and silver, one is able to use historical trading data of the one good, in order to project what may happen to the price of the other. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 5 December, 2011

Last week’s 900-point Dow rally may have stirred up some bullish excitement on the Street and at CNBC, but it looked to us like a fat pitch for anyone who’s been waiting patiently to get short. We’ll be looking to do so ourselves next week — with as little risk and stress as possible, using index futures and or equity put options. Full Story

By: Warren Bevan - 5 December, 2011

We had an absolutely amazing week for the US and world indices as news that joint central bank action was going to be taken. Many indices rose over 7% on the week which is nearly unheard of. It’s akin to a worldwide bailout with coordinated central bank action as they debase their currencies now together. Nothing has been solved by this action, in fact it’s going to hurt those who save in paper currencies the most. Full Story
