@skier99: are gold and silver bugs not serious investors? gold is up from $250 in 2001 to $1700 plus. Silver has done even better.That is serious investing. Silver may have been trading like a commodity for quite some time, but for most of the last 3000 plus years it was money. The fiat system has held silver away from that role, however, confidence in fiat is about to fail due to the massive debts behind these currencies. This will create a rush to silver and gold.
i am referring to its natural features. naturally they are more compliant to the properties of money listed in the article. other metals like you are mentioning also comply, but to a much lesser degree.
if you refer to gold as being used mainly for jewelry, then you have no understanding of gold's true role -monetary role.
on what basis should it be shunned.- give us facts,so that it can serve as a record for the future

I said that 1:1 is not impossible. Gold and silver being used as money is not equal to a gold standard.I for one, do not support a gold standard. Money should be what market participants want it to be, not what government decrees. Agreed there will likely always be an attempt to start fiat currencies, but the fiat always fails, and the current fiat system is no exception.
this is one that keeps coming up...i wish it did not, but in any case here is a reply I wrote to a reader recently: I do not prescribe to that theory that it was because of the Hunt
Brothers. If it was not going to be the Hunt brothers it would be
someone else. It would take a long time to really explain my view on this issue in
detail, for which I do not have the time now. If a good becomes so
undervalued, due to fundamentals (as i have dealt with in various
articles and videos) then it is bound to react as it did in 79/1980 and
and will now. Hunt brothers were not the cause they were more part of
the symptoms of a market that was craving for what precious metals offer.
but Eric Sprott is ;-)
understood. like i said, i personally prefer stacking the real stuff.
HI Holllywood65, Thanks. I think this coming rally is about silver's monetary role. People will flock to it for it's monetary properties, making its industrial demand immaterial for this rally. More explanation of this in an article of mine called: why silver for a monetary collapse part 1.
Yes, silver is bullish but tricky. However, it appears there is a fantastic flag forming on the chart: http://seekingalpha.co...
"It amazes me at how strong the rand stays with all the talk of nationalization and lack of electrical power etc."
Understood! I find that these exchange rate movements are more cyclical than anything else. The problems are often not reflected in the movement of the currency, unless it is the season for that direction of movement.
It is not so much the rand dollar problem alone, but a matter of margins for these producers. My analysis shows that the the USD/ZAR rate should be flat to higher over the next 6 month to 18 months, mainly due to pressure on "risk" assets (rand is bad during risk-aversion). This together with a higher "real" $ gold price (gold vs mainly oil and steel), should give these miners good margins in their local currency, and therefore good profits.
This is almost the opposite of what they were facing when their margins were under pressure despite a higher $ gold price.

It also includes analysis of the HUI, XAU and GDX
thanks. i believe, it will.
Yes, a parabolic move appears to be straight ahead of us, and it is likely to take the monetary system down. The next 18 months could be historic...not in a good way.
Yes the ship has hit the iceberg. Gold and silver will soon announce the end by way of a massive rally into 2012.
also from a cycles perspective, we are in a period where the end of important cycles are converging. 40 yrs, 70yrs and 80yrs are all important Biblical periods of judgments.
it is 40 yrs since Nixon closed the gold window. it is about 80 yrs since the Great Depression and 2013 will mark 80 yrs since FDR confiscated and revalued gold. 2014 will be 70 yrs since Bretton Woods.
It is likely that we will see a new monetary order by 2014.
Regards,
Hubert
signs of the coming mania ...
2014 marks 80 yrs since this monetary order. 80 yrs is the period of judgment according to the Scriptures. Currently, things are playing out like the Scriptures' pattern of judgment. Look for a new monetary order before 2014.
The evidence is piling up. According to my own analysis, we could see the greatest gold and silver rally of recent times, over the next couple of months and into 2012.
