  • Are Stocks Tumbling Too Far Too Fast? [View article]
    Correction: If he thinks the markets are "tumbling too far, too fast", there is a pretty good chance they will fall further and faster.

  • Are Stocks Tumbling Too Far Too Fast? [View article]
    An advisor with Cam's experience should know that the VIX is useless as a predictive tool as it only reacts to market movements. Accordingly, he remains firmly in the camp of my contrary indicators. If he thinks the markets are " dropping to far to fast", there is a pretty good chance they will drop further and faster.

  • Adding Perspective On The Stock Market Sell-Off [View article]
    It takes a 'disciplined' investor to buy when a market is down 20% because that often proves to be a great time to buy. However, after the market has fallen more yet and is 40% down, that same investor, being human, is now questioning the wisdom of having bought when the market was 'only' down 20%. The losses are mounting as the economy goes from bad to worse. After the market has fallen 50% or more from their highs, that same 'disciplined' investor, now in serious trouble, is succumbing to the screaming headlines that are predicting total collapse of the economy and he begins to puke up all the shares that he had bought when they were down only 20% to 40%. The losses are massive but he tells himself that he had no choice but to get out because this time "it really is different".
    The 'smart money' are those that actually drive the markets with their unlimited resources and who are more than happy to buy at market bottoms that they have themselves have created. They will run the game again with a new crop of fresh faced suckers who think they can win because they are such 'disciplined' investors and way to clever to be out-smarted.

  • Strategies For When The Bull Market Finally Dies [View article]
    Mr. Parnell, excellent article! Knowing when the market has topped out is not an easy task, as you have so well illustrated. Even after the market has peaked, it can come within a few percent of it's high during a bear market rally that could occur months down the road, fooling those who think the bull market is intact. Those who believe that sticking to the 'fundamentals' will save them are the ones that get beat up the most as they ride the bear market down.

  • The January Effect, Shrinkflation, Gold And Uranium, And Uranerz Update [View article]
    Excellent article! A must read for anyone who believes our government is telling us the truth about inflation. Inflation right now, is almost as bad as it was in the seventies. Back then, it was quite popular to blame the unions for inflation because they made sure the worker got as raise just like the executives did. Now that most workers are no longer represented by unions and their wages have stagnated while the corporate executives are being paid obscene salaries, who can we now blame for inflation?

    It's a good time to be shorting the S&P.

  • Gold Breakout Occurs As The Days Turn Long [View article]
    John, actually, I did buy in early December and many of the juniors are up over 50% already which is why I have taken profits. The gut wrenching drop of $200 back in April was the smart money bailing. It would be nice to see another gut wrenching drop in gold that would serve to flush out the dumb money. Everybody thinks gold is making a bottom and maybe it is, but until we see a decisive move above $1270, we may be in a another sucker's rally.

  • Gold Stocks - Still Looking Good [View article]
    This is one of the most sensible articles I read for a long time. This author is clearly not one of the goldbug cheer leading team and is one of the few who actually understands how the markets work. There is no guarantee that gold will rise from this point or that the 'bottom' is actually in. I sold nearly all my mining stocks over the past few days, with the expectation that they will be available again at cheaper prices.

  • Precious Metals, You've Got The Wrong Idea [View article]
    To quote: "I'm perpetually long both of the precious metals." That pretty much sums up this highly opinionated article. SA should be a little more selective about what it accepts as articles that are little more than a rant.

  • Market Outlook - 'Slow Enough' Rally [View article]
    The GDP numbers are getting better, the unemployment numbers are improving and many analysts are now telling us that the market is fairly valued by what ever measure they can dream up. PE ratios have regained their popularity as stuffing for the S&P turkey. Yep, everything is in place for a nice correction. I am ready. Bring it on!

  • Gold Breakout Occurs As The Days Turn Long [View article]
    As of today, I have unloaded most of the junior oil stocks bought on the Canadian exchanges in early December. Many are now up 50% or more from their badly over sold bottoms. No point in being greedy.
    Currently, we have multiple analysts and goldbugs proclaiming that the bottom is 'in' for the gold miners. Their enthusiasm is not a good sign. Also, there has not been a gut wrenching capitulation sell off that would clearly mark the end of the gold's decline. Troublesome.
    It might be prudent to wait and see if that $1268 level is taken out by more than just a few cents. On the other hand, a fast drop to the $1210 level with a quick reversal would be encouraging.

  • U.S. Investors Show New Interest In Gold And Silver [View article]
    Phenix: Friday's move in gold was only 0.95%. You call that serious buying? The inflow into GLD of a meagre 7.5 tonnes was significant only in that it wasn't the usual outflow. I want gold to go up as much as anyone that isn't the kind of action we need to see to start a new bull market. If I was one of those long term investors who accumulates and buries my gold, it wouldn't matter. In fact, I wouldn't even waste my time being here on SA.

  • Who Cares If The Metals Are Manipulated!? [View article]
    "Fundamentals" only matter when they are used as a tool (by the so call smart money crowd) to convince the gullible that its time to either buy or sell at exactly the wrong times. During 2012 and 2013, all we heard about was how bad the fundamentals were for the stock market and how great they were for gold. We all know how that worked out.
