  • Gold, Silver And The Mining Sector: Prepare For A Severe Fall [View article]
    user92718,

    It might be tomorrow and it might not, I had similar conversations in 1980 when gold had peaked - it spent the next 20 years in a bear phase.

    We want to make money now and so we have traded this downward trend thus increasing our cash position for when the trend does turn bullish.

    claudius emperor,

    Yes indeed gold will soar, when the time comes and that's the million dollar question, if we can get that right, as in getting the big picture sorted then we should do very well indeed, but for now we are happy to most of our funds in cash. In 2013 cash outperformed gold, silver and the miners http://bit.ly/1qQVaBv so it wasnt a bad place to be then.

    Gary Jakacky,

    We stand by that 'gold is in a bear phase' as evidenced by its fall from $1900/oz to $1200/oz, catching the turnaround is today's challenge.

    User 16336642,

    Stats from 1980 are a tad out of date, we've had QE etc since then, its a different environment today, so we are trying to ID the next and hopefully cheapest entry point. And as nothing goes up in a straight line we have recommended various 'short trades to our subscribers which have been profitable for them. http://bit.ly/17UodLA
    We do this to generate a profit not to support any particular stand point.

    BrBss,

    As they say 'the trend is your friend until it changes' - this bear phase is persistent so we are prepared to wait a little longer before going aggressively long on the PM mining stocks

    The Ukraine is a done deal, all over via the noise.
    Janet Yellen: Tapering to continue, interest rates to rise, gold and silver fall - to test June lows maybe?

    DeepValueLover,

    Indeed, we could see higher in a few months, however we could also see a test of the lows as the summer doldrums arrive and tapering is maintained, take good care here as it is a tricky situation we are dealing with.

    Gold, Silver and the HUI although close have yet to make new higher highs; if they fail to do so then we could see them fall back sharply - just my two cents worth for the day.

    FCARONE,

    Thank you for your great effort in pointing out some of Janet Yellen's failings, I must admit I'd either forgotten or missed some of them, so it does serve as a reminder to one and all that she is not Super Women and we do need to keep an eye on what she says and what she does as her actions will impact on all of us.

    When your better half has gold in the form of jewelry it becomes a double edged sword in that those who are desperate might try and steal it from her, lest hope it doesn't get that bad.

    'I can supply specifics' please pick a few examples and fire them in, we all need educating.

    Mark,

    Janet Yellen uses government figures in her models, so let me ask, do you believe their inflation figures and their unemployment figures?

    Steve,

    Pinning ones hopes on a Black Swan event is on par with buying a Lottery ticket, so don't hold your breath.

    9/11 was such an event and gold jumped up $20.00/oz and gave that gain back in the following 2 months and Black Swans don't come much blacker than that.

    mickjack,

    Those who devote their time to 'theories' have no emotional attachment to the project at hand. When you have skin in the game and you get it wrong you feel the pain and you also learn faster than the speed of light. When the pressure comes and it will, we will see just how this lady reacts, I for one am not looking forward to that day.
