  • Choosing Sides: Gold, Derivatives, And East Vs. West [View article]
    I wonder what kind of a plot the CIA is cooking up to have the democratically elected government of Greece replaced by one that is more 'western' friendly (as in allowing the bankers to further enslave the people with even more debt)?

    Perhaps Obama will send Kerry that way and he could show the Greeks some cool video footage of the smart bombs the Americans are so fond of using when they take out people they don't care for (and anyone else nearby).

  • Yet Another Useless Article About Gold Supply And Demand [View article]
    Rx: Are you unaware of new oil being stored in on site or nearby storage tanks? Not all new oil is necessarily sold immediately nor is all mined gold sold immediately. A look at any of the producer quarterly financials will indicate how much product is in inventory.

  • Yet Another Useless Article About Gold Supply And Demand [View article]
    The author claims that gold supply and demand are always in balance and that he cares not about gold mine production. So, how do the inventories of unsold gold, which at times, can be quite substantial, figure into that premise? We have a lot of unsold oil in storage right now and that has impacted the price in a big way. That fact is indisputable.

    Production of ANY commodity is always a concern to a futures trader because when supply and demand are not in balance, excess production becomes unsold inventory that puts downward pressure on pricing. Conversely, low inventories in a high demand scenario, pushes prices up.

    The author may want to re-think his argument and yes, I fully agree that this is another useless article.

  • Expect Immediate Trepidation Before Rally [View article]
    The stock market is looking 'tired' on the charts. I remain long gold and gold stocks while short the S&P by way of inverse ETFs. So far, the long gold has paid off nicely but I believe after a shallow pull back, gold is going to soar.

    The stock market, on the other hand needs a deep correction and it's coming sooner than later. Money that has been flowing from Europe to Us equities will undoubtedly reverse as it's QE ramps up.

  • A Fork In The Road Is Dead Ahead [View article]
    This is a good article. For gold to be rising as the dollar is advancing sharply means that demand for gold is very strong. Any pull back in the dollar is going to reveal just how strong that demand really is. At some point , we are going to witness one or more $100 daily increases in gold.

  • Gold Price: A Short-Term Rally Ahead [View article]
    To quote the author: " we expect the rising U.S. dollar to halt the rally in the coming months" Really? As in the same way it has stopped the gold's rally of the past few months?

    Gold is primarily driven by demand, not currency fluctuations. When is that dollar/gold correlation nonsense ever going to put to rest, as it should be?

  • Gold Price: Return Of The Bull Market Or Bear Trap? [View article]
    I am not sure that an increase in financing deals has any meaning. The oil and gas sector was getting plenty of financing until the bottom fell out for the price of crude. Several banks are about to taken out to the woodshed on some of those loans.

  • Will The ECB Kill The Gold Rally? [View article]
    Hmm, the tone of this article is quite bearish towards gold. Many readers will interpret "caution" as "don't buy" and will fail to buy gold on a dip.

    Eric, gold's correlation to QE programs is inconsistent and therefore unpredictable. For now, gold has adopted a bullish stance and will probably remain so, regardless of what the ECB does with it's bond buying program. If gold drops sharply on the announcement, and I don't think it will, I will be in there buying. In fact, I bought more on this morning's dip.

  • The Main Bearish Thesis On Crude [View article]
    Paulo, I always enjoy your well reasoned articles. Thanks for continuing to contribute here on SA when so many others have quit due to SA's discouraging new 'rules'. I guess they know what's best for their readers. But, I digress, so on with my take on the oil conundrum. What is the real issue? Is it too much supply or not enough demand or, just plain old manipulation by those who seek to control the market as they see fit (Saudi Arabia)? We have no way of knowing for sure because the media never paints a true picture of anything anymore. The simple answer may be that too much supply has been has hit a market too quickly and has upset a long standing demand/supply balance.

    Where and when crude is going to bottom is a guessing game. I suspect that eventually, some producer(s) will surprise the markets with an output cut that gets the ball rolling that will cause other producers to do likewise. Oil could conceivably jump 50% in less than a week. The question is, how low does crude have to go before that happens? My guess is somewhere between $30 and $35.

  • Understanding The Gold Trade: Why Gold Hates Inflation [View article]
    I read and re-read this article and it made less sense the second time around. The real rate of inflation in the US is far less important than how many ounces of gold an Indian wants to adorn himself with or how many tons the Russians and Chinese are buying. A loss of confidence in the American dollar would send gold soaring, no matter what the real interest rate might be.

  • Everything Has Changed: Oil, Saudi Arabia, And The End Of OPEC [View article]
    Forget all the complex theories about why oil is crashing. One of the commentators, stockdunn, was good enough to post a link to a video that everyone should watch. It is becoming clear why the Saudis themselves have publicly stated why we may never see $100 oil again. I will post the video link again so those who haven't seen it don't have to search for stockdunn's comment (credit is due to stockdunn).

  • Natural Gas In Early Stages Of Rebalancing Process, Prices To Fall Further [View article]
    Long term futures are the way to go if one keeps plenty of cash reserve on hand to withstand the margin calls in case the trade goes south for a while.

    Hmmm.. those 2019 futures sure do look tempting.
