    "regains a big chunk in post-trading of what it lost during the regular session, after CEO Safi R. Bahcall discloses the purchase of 10K shares at $4.40."

  • Is Gold Foreshadowing A Stock Market Implosion?  [View article]
    Nice article. I'm inclined to agree with your premise. If on the other hand everyone is chugging Uncle Ben's kool-aid, I think we will see the mother of all melt-ups in equities staring very shortly. It will be supported by the long-term charts and technicians will cite the power due to a breakout from the triple top. An alternative explanation is that GS and hedge funds ran a very good short game w GLD and futures and just made their quarter with the gains that they must have seen w weekly puts on the GLD. I did telegraph it quite well and coincidentally were helped w the Cyprus news, so I think there is merit to this argument.

  • Renewed Euro Crisis, Rising Inflation To Push Precious Metals Higher  [View article]
    /The Cypriot savings heist is a black swan for gold prices. I'd say a 6-9 % move up would be justified. The next time these confiscatory policies on cash are employed I'd say metals will go parabolic as they are the only true store of value.

    The Cypriot savings heist is a true 'black swan' for gold prices. I'd say a 6-9 % move up would be justified. The next time these confiscatory policies on cash are employed I'd say metals will go absolutely parabolic as they are the only true store of value.

  • BP asks a federal judge to temporarily halt its ~$8.5B settlement with plaintiffs over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico spill, saying the claims administrator's decisions could give the claimants "windfalls" and that the company could be "irreparably harmed." A judge ruled March 5 that BP must keep paying some compensation in larger amounts and to more parties than the company had anticipated.  [View news story]
