  • Medusa Mining - A Low Cost Gold Miner Poised For A Big October Re-Rating [View article]
    Great assessment, you certainly summed up all the reasons I was aware of, plus one I had not been aware of. I agree, and buy a bit more every time it dips. I hope that the share starts being traded rationally soon!

  • Medusa Mining - A Low Cost Gold Miner Poised For A Big October Re-Rating [View article]
    I'm thinking of picking some more of this stock up; any idea why it was hit so hard though? It began falling before gold spot got hit, and proceeded to fall on practically no news. It crashed when gold became bearish, all the way below 1200, and continues to crash in price despite gold returning to 1220. It makes no sense.....

  • Italy's New And Improved GDP [View article]
    Its actually working quite well from me; I bought when people were literally crying that gold would fall under 1200..... People such as yourself, who have no evidence for your claims; I seek to provide a basis for my claims at the very least. It is up to interpretation how useful this evidence is to people with differing opinions.

    You bring the reader's attention to a very specific speculative trade. Trying to hype your own stocks in the comments section is not the way to go. I would suggest that you write your opinions down and back it up with evidence, and then publish it. Feel free to discuss matters in a civil matter here though, if you so desire.

  • Gold: The Declines Won't Stop Here [View article]
    Hilarious indeed, that you would be incapable of making any effort whatsoever to understand my comment. I am not arguing that Ukraine WILL be the start of ww3, but that generally people like yourself have underestimated the probability of unlikely events, picking up pennies in front of a steamroller. My main beef lies with how you simply wait for a correction and then start spewing this rhetoric, and provide no proof, recycling old points reused from every other gold bear.

    Anyway, thanks for reporting my comment before replying. The number of people who agreed with my assessment of your work via 'likes' seems to indicate that I had spoken truthfully, albeit in an untactful manner.

    Gold is up again fyi, so much for your 'predictions'. Honestly, if I wrote an article every time it went up, I'd have no time for work. I wish I knew your secret.

    I find it interesting that he is willing to make a call regarding the probability that war will not blow out from Ukraine to spread all over the region. Based on what evidence? And then if war does occur, destroying is predictions (which would have gone bust on their own anyway), he'll go 'oh, but nobody can predict the future'..... Which is exactly why some small credence should be given to any prospect of drawn-out conflict, however small.

    WW1 started from a buildup of military assets followed by perhaps a red herring assassination. Small conflicts have a habit of lasting longer than predicted, and often herald political and diplomatic grievances that may precipitate larger conflicts.

  • Why Gold Is Still Good As Gold, And Why Bears Can Keep Their Short-Run Win [View article]
    Thanks, I had not intended to propagate the 'low CPI' argument, but my main point is this: IF the inflation we see in the market were X%, imagine what it would be if the rest of QE were to be released into the economy; X*3 perhaps. Further imagine what would occur if the money that had been released was not channeled into stocks but into the economy directly as had been 'intended' ( I use that term loosely because the Fed's stated and actual intentions may be at odds) (X*3)^2. Now X might be 1-2% as claimed by the Fed, but it may also be much higher depending on what basket of goods they had chosen...... You know what I'm implying :). The fact is that inflation would be drastically affected by where the money had been first directed, hence stocks face X^2 inflation. I'm oversimplifying this process, perhaps, but this is my view of how inflation would have been affected.

    If the market were rational, there would be no way for any trader to make money. Indeed no way for any investor to make money either. There are pockets of irrationality everywhere, the question is, are we the rational ones or they? That question can be answered with research and a great deal of digging; I have yet to see any reason that is strong enough to sway my investing decision.

    I will admit that even the rational can become irrational with time, thanks to over-speculation and changing fundamentals; I do not believe that is so yet.

    What you are suggesting however is not that they are more rational, but more capable of controlling the market. That is where my doubt stems mostly.

    CoinsK makes a good point. Bonds are not without some risk, and are in fact more risky than you would allude to because

    1) at current interest it only 'guarantees' that your money is worth less at a slower pace than cash

    2) there is an over-hype on the 'recovery' in the US and

    3) the Fed has done its darnedest to suppress rates for a reason, if it fails, you will find that bonds are the main concern, NOT even the overblown stock-market is as exposed to this possibility (Especially if they are international corporations). If it succeeds in suppressing rates you get below-inflation returns for a short period before we have this same discussion again. This is a classic no-win situation.

    I am unsure what scares me more, an incompetent Fed or one that knowingly seeks to fool us. To be fair, Keynesians tend to have a misguided belief regarding 'animal spirits'...

    Thanks, I tend to lie Low until I have enough info to regurgitate out at one go haha. You might be right, but all it takes is one card to bring down the entire house. Amazon or any one of the super high P/E stocks could do that, causing a panic.

    Thanks Jeff, I do try very hard to understand why I am invested in this particular asset, and simply repeating what others believe no longer cuts it for me. As my doubt regarding my decision grew, I decided to start digging harder.

    You are assuming that the Fed is unaware of the consequences of its decisions.... I am not so sure, I find it difficult to comprehend that the 'brightest minds' in economics could affect so much harm and still be well-intentioned.... I see no reason why they should not have led with your suggestion to begin with if they had wanted investments to benefit as opposed to speculation.

    You are correct in pointing out that most people are still broke, which is bearish for the economy and also bearish for 'consumption' of the metal from the middle class. should conditions worsen, I do not know how much gold will be sold to pay the bills. Also, if all that QE cash stays in the vaults forever (only about 15% was loaned out), who knows if that is even possible, deflation from the debt is a possible outcome and gold goes down until the debt cannot be repaid. If money creation comes to the fore, then the value of the USD comes down and inflation takes over. If QE money comes out during that period because bankers decide its time to indenture via debt, inflation followed by deflation.

    However, there are other purchasers of the metal; the very wealthy 1-10% are getting exponentially wealthier still, and if they are not already invested, they will strive to be if crisis signs start to accelerate. China continues to purchase the metal for their own reasons. They might stop buying when they have enough to rival the US, but the question is when that is going to happen, and if it does, what else does it mean for the world economy? Too many factors, too many actors. All I can be sure of is that gold is at or near its most hated; only strong hands and very stubborn gold hoarders stand by it.

    Thanks for the support Ninja :P unexpected, precise, deadly.

    I want to add though that It is fair of TT to point out that he has lost out, or that he feels that he has anyway. Hopefully he'll learn the correct lessons from his past. I hope I have, sometimes.

    I think I'll turn the mantra into a hit song one day ;). I feel that the main problem with bears is their lack of evidence other than 'look, chart. Look, down arrow. Down arrow baaad.'. empirical evidence is not bad, but it oversimplifies one's thinking; one can always find some chart to support one's thesis. Ideally, a trader must at the same time understand that a multitude of other reasons exist that he may not even be aware of and that his own chosen premise might be false. He must then seek to understand these reasons where they exist, even if they are insufficient, and indeed can never be sufficient to explain......

    What the....My apologies, I tend to wander around a bit. Where am I?

    Good luck Harry. On the larger scale, I really hope things do not get too bad. China has been implementing its one-child-policy for awhile now, and as inhumane as pundits would call it, they are doing what they believe would allow for a sustainable population. Damned if you do, thrice damned if you don't. Autumn passes and..... Winter Is Coming (I watch too much TV). I believe that past winter is spring though, but it is always good to have a reserve of basics just in case it takes longer than was expected. Live long and prosper.
