  • Indian demand for gold evaporates [View news story]
    Macrotrader: Nice play. You obviously did not buy into "the demand for physical is through the roof" garbage that we have been hearing for various tunnel visioned goldbugs and so called analysts who should have known better.

  • Protect Yourself From Syria, Fed Tapering, And The Debt Ceiling - Profit From The Volatility [View article]
    I don't know how this article made it past the SA editors. Comparing the VIX index, which is not tradeable and the S&P, produces a very deceptive chart. Plotting the VXX and the S&P would produce a chart with a whole different meaning. The extreme decay of all the VIX derivatives overrides any brief correlation that may exist with the S&P. True, once in a blue moon, the market crashes and the VIX and VXX will shoot to incredible levels but to buy VXX with the hope that may happen soon, is just a crap shoot, not investing.

    If one wants to see just how fast money can disappear, buy the VXX or even quicker losses, buy UVXY.

  • A Buy Signal From The VIX/VXV Ratio [View article]
    Cam: Did you actually look closely at the chart presented? On nearly every occasion where the indicator crossed UP into the upper zone, the market subsequently went up. That should be no surprise, when one considers that for the period selected, the S&P had been going up pretty much most of the time. In fact, the peaks in the upper zone coincide quite well with bottoms for the S&P but that doesn't mean the indicator has any predictive value.

  • The Changing Relationship Between U.S. Stocks And Gold Is Good For Gold [View article]
    Why does the author choose to discuss a correlation (or lack of) between gold and a US stock market only? What about the rest of the world's stock markets? Is it because from an American point of view, only the US matters?

    To conclude that gold will rise because of a perceived "changing relationship" between gold and stocks (American, of course), is utterly ridiculous.

    When has the stock market NOT been in a period of "instability"?

  • Market Outlook - Watch The VIX For Clues [View article]
    I challenge the author to produce a single credible study that establishes a definitive link between the VIX and future (not current) S&P levels.

  • All Eyes On Syria And The Fed For The Next Gold Price Move [View article]
    Gold is on the verge of exploding upward. The sell offs are manipulations to allow anyone who wants to get in on the action, to do so at lower prices. We need to thank the likes of JP Morgan and of course, the FED for making it so. Aren't they being thoughtful?

  • Last Hour Sell-Offs Becoming The Norm [View article]
    It's September! Holding stocks overnight is risky mainly because if the 'crash' possibility, forget Syria.

  • Natural Gas Tumbles Below $3.60 Despite Ongoing Hot Spell, Surplus Shrinks Slightly [View article]
    I am not waiting for "one final leg lower ahead of winter". I am already in the market and if there actually is another leg down, that would be a bonus and I will commit further to the long side. The bear market in NG is over.

  • Gold's Dead Cat Bounce Is Dying If Not Dead ... Again [View article]
    Robert, even if I don't always agree with your arguments, I enjoy reading your articles and always very entertaining comment section. Your articles are like salt in the hurting wounds of the beat up pro-gold crowd. Is there a bias by the SA editors? Maybe there just isn't that many contributors that are negative on gold. On the other hand, bullish on gold articles always bring in far more hits from the die-hard goldbug crowd.

  • Will Natural Gas Hit $4? [View article]
    Lior, I don't believe that FCG experiences any roll decay due to the fact that it tracks an index that is made up of the securities of a number of NG companies and does not invest in futures. Any etf or etn that does hold futures suffers badly from contango losses, including UNG, UNL, UGAZ, BOIL. Otherwise, good article.

    NG pricing has only one way to go (up for the medium to long term) until it reaches a level that provides a reasonable return to producers for their massive investments. That would be around $5.

  • Calvalley Petroleum: A Debt-Free Oil & Gas Producer Trading Below Proven Reserves [View article]
    FIDOkid: Thanks for the great commentary. The author has done his homework but their is something wrong with this stock. It continues to perform poorly despite what seems to be descent fundamentals.
