  • We Are Tactically Bearish On Silver [View article]
    Good stuff! Keep selling so I can get mine cheaper and cheaper. No one wants the darned metal anyway except those pesky electronic and solar manufacturers. The metal is totally useless except for those few applications mentioned by the Silver Institute.
    What would they know compared to an experienced trader like you?

  • Insatiable Demand For Gold And Silver From Both East And West [View article]
    If, as you say, the Japanese Central Bank is keeping gold flat in yen terms to avoid a run to gold they're doing a good job so far.
    Watermelons now cost up to $40 and Japan Times has some startling reports on food inflation. The world is catching on to the shell games played with fiat and gold as prices, everywhere, melt up.

  • Why Gold Will Rise When The Dollar Falls [View article]
    It's not just the USD, it's the CAD, the EURO, the AUS, The YEN and every other currency you can name. They've all had a frenzied period of printing. When they're called to account it will be gold that decides their intrinsic value.

  • Gold Likely To Break Out, But Will It Go Up Or Down? [View article]
    I don't know for sure about gold but I do know my paper money is rapidly withering in value. The last few years of utility, tax, food and energy costs has savaged my monthly budget.

  • Read This Before You Buy A Gold-Mining Stock [View article]
    Amber, your article is faulty in its conclusions. While it's true traditional underground mining is expensive and highly capital intensive gold miners have other options and, they're not stupid.

    The interim answer is in near surface oxides. All in, costs can be $650/oz to $1000, leaving plenty of room for profits. Capex's are low, $80M to $150M. Nevsun booked $500M in profits in little over a year mining the oxide cap of their copper deposit and is the model for others to follow.

    So, mining companies blessed with these are going to have very profitable years moving forward. Nevada is blessed with plentiful oxides so watch Corvus, Pilot, Atna, Gold Standard Ventures and others there. Colombia is also rich in them so Red Eagle and some others there should do well.

    In Africa, Banro is following Nevsun's lead with 4 oxide deposits, so, back up the truck on their cheap stock. True Gold in Burkina is financed up for oxide production in Burkina as is West African Resources (almost). Companies such as these will carry the flag for gold over the next few years as paper declines in value.

    Good oxides are rare and limited in size but they can generate the cash required to go deeper just as Nevsun has done.

    The longer gold is kept in check at $1300 the higher its ultimate value will become.

  • Reuters Omits The Grey Areas About China Gold Demand [View article]
    Tao, may the Easter Bunny bring you insight. Taoists go with the flow (wu wei) so prefer to hold gold as the deluge of paper pours out of every economy.

    Holding gold is an almost perfect example of the Taoist philosophy of "wei wu wei" (action without action). While the world inflates the Tao believer merely stands aside and preserves his wealth effortlessly, particularly important to the Chinese as they have no "social security" and, with the one child policy, few to care for them as they age.

    You've got the map of China upside down.

  • China Supply Demand Dynamics May Drive Gold Lower [View article]
    >>>Investors just seem to be getting tired of the Armageddon/Apocalypse collapse of the global financial system fear trade.<<<

    LOL Robert. We've been in a state of "controlled collapse" for decades now, cleverly concealed by worldwide maniacal flurries of fiat printing. Exactly where, and when, this ends is unpredictable but one thing is certain: those mountains of debt looming on the horizon will be inflated away like a rising hot sun clearing a misty morning.

    It appears no accident of nature gold and sunshine share the same radiance.

  • Rates Up, Fear Down: Washington Crossing Advisors Say 'Stay Away From Gold' [View article]
    Robert is beating his breast again on gold's decline. How anyone can look at the trillions of dollars, yuan and euros being printed and forecast a decline in gold beats me. Never mind the massive debts being run up.

    "Bad money drives out good" is an ageless aphorism. Convert your paper to gold and await the ultimate correction. It's bound to come.

  • Chinese February Gold Imports Show Strong Chinese Demand: What Chinese Credit Crunch? [View article]
    Obviously the gold price is falling because someone (CB's, miners??) are lining up to throw massive loads of bars in front of waiting Chinese, Russian, Iraqi, Thai, Vietnamese (etc. etc.) buyers. Or, are those "promises" to deliver bars?

    When the music stops on this one it will be interesting to see who is left standing holding the paper.

  • You Go Girl; Janet Yellen Gives Gold The Beat Down [View article]
    Wobert, waiting for $770 gold anxiously. Worried banks may start lending out the $zillions they've got parked once the warm weather hits and the economy starts to improve. Food prices and other inflationary forces are lurking that may perhaps interrupt our journey to that magic number.

    Should I load up on the way down or await your "buy" signal?
