  • It Could Be A Nasty Spring For Precious Metals [View article]
    I'd read the GLD prospectus and make your own judgment on that controversial subject.

    The dollar/gold inverse correlation is one of the more reliable ones out there - I always think of it as the gold price won't rise and will probably fall when the dollar rises, but anything else goes.

    China currency and Volker Rule - who knows? The PBOC has certainly bought a lot of gold without making any official announcement (they surely had some reason to buy the stuff) and anything that leads to big banks having less of an impact on markets is probably good.

  • After The Sell-Off: A Bright Spot For Gold [View article]
    Gold ETF flows and Comex positioning seem to be pretty consistent - see this Bloomberg article for details on the latter:

  • Gold Price Set To Resume Its Long-Term Upward Trend [View article]
    Not good short-term, as evidenced by the $10 drop on Friday.

    My guess is that we're done retesting the sub-$1,200 lows.

    Yes, Koos does good work and I've referenced his stuff on a number of occasions recently.

    It should be interesting to see how his data looks in another couple weeks since there is a lag in reporting from his sources (e.g., Shanghai Gold Exchange).

  • Developments In Washington Will Drive Precious Metals Prices This Week [View article]
    From last week's article (http://bit.ly/19gA4ks):

    "Few are expecting a repeat of those late-summer events two years ago, but dickering in Washington could give precious metals a real boost that could change the outlook in a very positive way for technical traders."

    Translation - it's possible that we'd get a big enough move up to change the technical picture sufficiently to spur a bigger move higher.

  • Gold And Silver Now Desperately In Need Of A New Catalyst [View article]
    I saw that, but, considering the source, decided to wait before commenting - it should be interesting to see how it unfolds.

    I try not to make predictions about the short-term.

  • The Changing Relationship Between U.S. Stocks And Gold Is Good For Gold [View article]
    Good question and the subject of an upcoming article.

    As it turns out, the gold price peak in late-December 1974 coincided with year-over-year inflation peaking at about 12 percent. Inflation then fell (to about 5 percent) along with the gold price in 1975 and 1976. Both hit bottom in 1976 and rose sharply from there in the years that followed.

    All good points - the next few days will tell if this is anything more than short covering - so far, so good.

  • What Next After Another Gold And Silver Sell-Off? [View article]
    I bought nearly all of my precious metals about a decade ago and, aside from some silver in 2011, I've sold very little. I have no idea about the short-term, but I remain bullish over the long-term.
