  • Gold At An Inflection Point [View article]
    The 'mess' is the Ukraine with the West and Russia squaring up to each other in ways not seen since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    Tens of thousands of soldiers and tanks, jets and ships being poitioned in close proximity is what has been dictating the price of gold in recent weeks.

    If the situation in the Ukraine worsens then gold will soar. If both sides back down then gold will drop.

    You can look back over recent weeks and every time the situation in the Ukraine has worsened the price of gold has spiked. When things calmed down a bit - i.e. talks were anounced - the price of gold has gone down. This is how gold always acts when the major powers start rattling their sabres at one another.

    If the Ukraine situation is resolved I expect to see gold drop considerably. If Putin sends troops in then gold will soar.

    The only 'factor' that now dictates the price of gold currently is Mr. Putin.

  • Gold, Silver And The Mining Sector: Prepare For A Severe Fall [View article]
    JP Morgan, Barclays and HSBC continue to have massive short positions in gold and silver.

    They will knock the metals down over the coming months until even the biggest bulls are crushed - I expect to see gold down around 1,000 bucks or just below as they take out stop after stop after stop. Silver will see 17 bucks and perhaps 15 IMPO.

    Then they will go long.

    I think the only thing that has stopped gold plunging in recent weeks has been fears over the Ukraine. If that is solved peaceably I can see a sudden sharp sell off in the metals.

    The plunge protection team stepped in on Monday in the last 30 to 40 minutes and pumped up stocks from 0% to 1% gains.

  • On the hour [View news story]
    Can't believe markets are up whilst both sides are squaring up to each other in the Ukraine. I was expecting a big drop today. Surely a drop has to come once the shooting starts - if Russia goes in then the markets must plunge surely?

    Oh, I started and finished a sentence with the same word. Oh!

  • Why Stocks Won't Crash (For Now) [View article]
    Google is one of the first to report this week - it will be good and the markets will bounce. They probably will ignore the bad news after hours every night as HFTs pump up the markets again.

    I think Russia will go into Eastern Ukraine either this week or next - certainly by Easter - and that will give us a 10% to 20% panic crash. Then it will be off to the races gain to new DOW and NASDAQ highs.

  • What Makes A Market Top? [View article]
    I am a bear on the markets but, boy, the last month has pretty much sucker-punched me.

    Last year was bad but this market just seems to keep on goingh igher and higher.

    If they break 1900 on the S&P I can see them not being happy until 2000 is broken.

  • Silver Should Rally, But Can Then Drop As Low As $14 [View article]
    Gold and silver just spiked up on news that Putin is, allegedly, cheesed off with JPM Morgan.

    The news broke on the wires and both gold and silver went vertical instantly.

    Just saying.

    I think all the inverse products - i.e. they go up when gold/silver go down - reset daily whether they are 1X, 2X or 3X.

    I could be wrong.

    Thanks gregd48 - much appreciated.

    I recall lots of other miners making bigger gains - many with 40% plus gains and some up near 100%. I am thinking of firms like Randgold, Allied Nevada, etc.

    Probably worth trying to compile a list and putting it together. It is later here in the UK and I am tired but I will have a look on some of the older gold article threads from about 4 or so weeks ago in the morning.

  • Breaking News: Who Really Controls Silver And Gold? [View article]
    Does anyone have a list of the gold and silver mining stocks and which ones did best in the recent rise from late December?

    I seem to recall someone posting such a list in a comment below one of Avi's articles several weeks back?
