  • Gold's Glitter Not Yet In Jeopardy [View article]
    It really depends on what kind of gold you're talking about it. If it's the real Gold you speak of, the stuff He's not making anymore, then we are dealing with a finite supply. In a world where Governments just print more money, and companies print more shares whenever they need liquidity, we lose touch with the concept of true "supply and demand" the most basic ingredient of what makes a market.

    A big problem today is that many people around the world hold monthly statements from ETF's like GLD and are firmly convinced that they actually own GOLD. If they only took the time to read the prospectus of GLD they would understand that what they own is a journal entry backed up by a statement. The same can be said for those who take delivery of a Futures Contract via a Warehouse Receipt. It's one great big shell game. A line from an iconic television commercial said "Where's the beef?" I say "Where's the Gold?"

    I take no issue with GLD or SLV as short term trading vehicles. My concern is for those who believe they have placed a portion of their long term portfolio in a safe haven investment. At some point the veil will be rent and the group consciousness will experience a great big aha moment. Unfortunately as people rush to liquidate their GLD they will be faced with the reality that there really isn't enough GOLD because He stopped making it and man kept printing it.

  • The Most Deceptive And Dangerous Financial Headline I Have Ever Seen [View article]
    Actually I write my own headlines. Perhaps you are receiving preferential treatment or know someone on staff. I would like to hear from other authors as to whether or not they pen their own headlines.

    Now you got me thinking and that hardly ever ends well....

  • E-Mini S&P 500: Labor Shocker Favors Investors [View article]
    The fact that anyone takes heed of numbers that are almost always "adjusted" at some later point has always befuddled me. Then again, it doesn't take much...

  • Can Gold ETFs Push To A New Record High In 2012? [View article]
    In answer to your question - "Can Gold ETF's rise in 2012?" the easy and obvious response is an emphatic yes. However, I believe that many investors are under the belief that owning shares of GLD means that part of their investment portfolio is actually in a tangible precious metal asset i.e, Gold. The truth is, nothing could be farther from the truth. Is that fact clearly disclosed in the prospectus? Yes it is. As I recall on page 70'ish.

    Do I think GLD and SLV are adequate short to mid term trading vehicles? Yes. In that respect they are as "real" as a Comex Gold or Silver Futures Contract. In fact they are almost as "real" as a warehouse receipt. The real truth in regards to any of the above is this - You only own the idea of owning Gold. You own a piece of paper. As long as an investor clearly understands the difference, and knowingly chooses to own an idea and not physical Gold or Silver, then he understands the risk he faces. If you do not clearly understand the risk, read the prospectus completely, consult with a licensed investment professional, and talk to investors at MF Global who were quite certain they owned physical Gold. They even had the paper to prove it.

    Imagine what the price of Gold and Silver would be today if all the money spent buying an idea had actually been spent buying real Gold and real Silver. Things that make you go hmmmm...

    Purple Rain - Hate it when the doves cry.

    Great take on a reality that we all need to face up to rather quickly. If anyone by chance, still has a HELOC with a favorable rate tied to Prime, get it locked into something else before it's too late.

    Many of you may not be old enough to remember 18% interest on home mortgages. That'll make your dove cry.

    Again, great commentary.

  • E-Mini S&P 500: At The Crossroads - Implode Or Explode? [View article]
    Our highest Weekly Trading Zone for the week was 1339/1340.

    You are correct 3C, once the majority gets long the market will get short. And once those longs get stopped out, the rally will resume. I'm a technical trader but it is difficult to overlook the history of markets in election years.

    As for myself, I am suffering from electile dysfunction as no one in my party can get me aroused.

    Have a great weekend!
