  • Dollar Down, Metals Down - Which One Is Lying? [View article]
    I am fed up with reading these articles and then just see loads of personal insults hurled at the author for seemingly no reason.

    I have never done this before but I am now going to start reporting such posts for abuse. They detract from the discussion and they are reaching the point where there is little point in coming to SA.

  • GLD: Not The Ukraine Again [View article]
    I was watching the market screens on Friday with stocks going up and gold going down. Then news hit the wires that a military helicopter had been blown up in the Ukraine. Immediately gold went up vertical and stock markets turned red.

    I generally enjoy your articles Avi but continuing to be in denial about how stocks and gold react in times of international military tensions is simpy naive at best IMPO.

  • Volatility Just Ain't What It Used To Be [View article]
    This market is a classic conman's trick - set-up the mark, lure the mark in, get the mark's money and then, before the mark realises, their money has disappeared.

    This market is doing its best to lure in Joe Public. Once it does, it will crash BIG time IMPO.

  • Are $1400 Gold And $26 Silver About To Be Seen? [View article]
    "We run after values that, at death, become zero. At the end of your life, nobody asks you how many degrees you have, or how many mansions you built, or how many Rolls Royces you could afford. That’s what dying patients teach you.” - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.

    Avi, perhaps you are talking to someone who will never understand you? You do not have to justify yourself to anyone. Personally, I think becoming a parent is the hardest and bravest thing that anyone can do.

  • Is Silver Going To Go To New Lows? [View article]
    As last week progressed Obama and Kerry increasingly looked like chumps and Putin looked like the world leader. Threat of US bombing of Syria was receeding all week as the US had little support outside of the US to bomb Syria. Within the US it looked increasingly likely that Obama would lose any vote on bombing Syria.

    So all week war risk was receeding and gold and silver declined as a result.

    Late on Friday Russia and the US suddenly looked closer to a deal but what if it went pear shaped over the weekend? If you were short PMs it made sense to cover over the weekend.

    Syria has been a major player in PMs in recent weeks - only a fool would think otherwise IMPO.

    I enjoy Avi's articles and do not understand the details of EW but Syria has been the prime mover of oil and PMs in recent weeks.

    Anyone who thinks differently simply does not understand how the US lobbing cruise missiles into Damascus could have resulted in a far wider war involving Israel, Iran and others.

  • Why Have You Been Wrong About Gold And Silver? [View article]
    FWIIW I think we are close to the start of a sizeable drop in the DOW/NASDAQ/FTSE that will see those markets move much lower by as much as 10% and perhaps more.

    Timeframe - any time now through to February/March. Volumes are low, stock bought on margin are at near record highs and retail investors are mostly out of cash and into stocks - who is left to buy? 20% drop whilst incredibly rare not impossible.

    This will take down gold and silver and give us a bottom before a crazy sharp rebound in the PMs.

    They do not happen in the dead of night - they happen when the US is asleep and billions of people in other countries are awake.
