  • The Radical Gold Underinvestment By American Stock Investors Is Very Bullish [View article]
    It's a bit beyond my understanding why anyone should want to buy anything but junior gold - also other PM - miners, given the vastly higher leverage versus GLD, bullion or coins, PROVIDED the miners chosen are those carefully picked as able to withstand the current bear market and flourish once the inevitable commodity bull cycle returns. Also a big dose of patience is called for.

  • Why I'm A Gold Bull [View article]
    Well-thought out article, Ben. Thanks. Waiting for your assessment on the miners although I do have guidance of my own. That's where there is great leverage, and fire-sale prices. Patience is the keyword. The wait seems never-ending, but as they say *Dawn follows the darkest hour.*

  • Gold Stocks Recovering Despite Lackluster Gold Action [View article]
    I agree with TagHoyer. Even if there is a lower low in PM I doubt it will be sufficiently significantly lower not to buy now and miss the upswing which must surely come after such depressed prices and the cyclical nature of the stock market.

  • Red Eagle Mining Is Shifting Gears: After Permitting, Debt Financing Is Arranged Very Quickly [View article]
    Thanks for that. I already have shares in Red Eagle, and this strengthens my feeling about them.

  • GLD - Expect A $5 Move This Week, But What About The Long Term? [View article]
    Even those commentators that are not gold bugs as such are beginning to view gold positively.

  • GLD Breaks, Are We Now Entering That Last Leg Down? [View article]
    Holding on to mining stocks hasn't been's a sort of survival of the fittest. But I become increasingly confident that I'll get there.

    And I don't think it's wise to wait for a rise, one could miss the boat, or should I say rocket.

  • Gold Collapsing As Predicted - Are You Ready To Listen Yet? [View article]
    Eighteenth century Baron Rothschild coined the phrase: Buy when there is blood in the streets, even went further to say - even if its your own. And he should know.

    The point is it takes strong nerves and a contrary nature to buy when it seems everyone is selling. But looking at things dispassionately, prices, particularly in the junior mining sector are absurdly low, and bearing in mind that all markets are cyclical, this is the best time to buy and not be intimidated by such remarks as "Well, now are you prepared to listen?"

  • GLD: 'I Am As Mad As Hell, And I Am Not Going To Take This Anymore' [View article]
    I see a conundrum here. If as you say, (without getting into the nitty gritty of technical analysis), PM's will still go down before starting a bull market within a matter of a few short months or so, then surely it would be prudent to buy right now, as no-one can time an EXACT bottom, and any interim losses should be vastly covered by possibly steep rises as buying momentum accelerates. IMHO!

  • GLD: 'I Am As Mad As Hell, And I Am Not Going To Take This Anymore' [View article]
    Well, Avi, firstly I do agree with you about Sprott and Ebola, quite shocked.

    Secondly, to be clear, are you saying that junior PM miners will experience the start of a bull market, beginning in early 2015?

  • 3 Reasons Gold Stocks May Not Have Bottomed Yet [View article]
    The conundrum remains - how do you time a bottom? Quality mining shares ultimate prices in the next bull market will vastly cover any difference between the actual bottom and price paid. What is required is great patience and stick-ability.

  • November Vote: Do The Swiss Believe In Gold? [View article]
    All this demand for gold from seemingly all corners of the Earth, and some will reject the idea of manipulation of the gold price. I would say it is so big that one can hardly see the wood for the trees. But the truth always bursts out sooner or later.

  • Extreme Gold/Silver Futures Shorting Peaks, Covering Nears [View article]
    This article I find convincing along with other factors like the triple bottom, Avi Gilburt's beloved Elliot wave has gone insane, he concedes that after down is up, markets are always cyclical, the equities market is coming out of its euphoria, a true bubble has been created by the Fed, and so on. The only question is when, not if and rather months not years.

    Also, the miners, particularly the juniors are at ridiculously low prices.

  • Update: ATAC Resources Reports Compelling Exploration Results [View article]
    Knowing Ben's conservative and cautious approach, I would say that his using the words *compelling* and *clearly bullish* makes ATAC very much a buy. I own ATAC shares, and along with the remainder of my gold mining shares, am increasingly confident they will take off. Speculation doesn't come safer than this.

  • GLD ETF Has 8%-17% Downside Unless Trouble Spreads [View article]
    What about the debt crisis? What about a stock market crash - the equities market has been going up relentlessly for five years, and is showing cracks - not a case of if but when. It could be tomorrow morning or a few weeks, or months from now? Quite a bit to choose from.
