  • Why I Strongly Disagree With Goldman's Bearish Gold Call - Buy The GLD [View article]
    Seems pretty simple to me. Goldman is at the helm. They sell when the price is up, then engineer the price down and then buy, and they keep to this cycle. But the trend is up, it just may take a bit longer to get there. The Chinese, at least, are seeing to that.

  • Precious metals miners benefit as gold surges [View news story]
    Sad that it takes a scary crisis to send the metals up, but that's the way of the world, and shows that gold has not lost it's luster in terms of a safe heaven, in spite of the naysayers.

  • Who Cares If The Metals Are Manipulated!? [View article]
    The problem with Avi Gilburt's obsession with the veracity of the Elliot wave theory is that he is just that - obsessive. No one system for forecasting stock movement should exclude all others, or put another way, no system is infallible. There are too many factors involved.

  • Gold continues push higher after jobs report [View news story]
    Obviously, in spite of huge disagreement among experts as to what direction gold is going, no-one really knows for sure. My guess, which may be as good as anyone's, is that the trend will be up even if it may dip briefly to ~$1000 (which is doubtful). Gold's return to glory still seems a case of when, not if.

  • Moody's deals another blow to global gold miners [View news story]
    Very interesting. One line above my SA Moody's report in my inbox, Bloomberg paints a very different picture of the gold industry. Personally, I would go for Bloomberg. They are surely more objective. Generally, I would say, taking a personal *poll* of a whole range of pro advice, the yeahs vastly outnumber the nays.

  • Goldman: Sell gold miner volatility in 2014 [View news story]
    May I humbly suggest buying promising solid junior miners not yet in production, so the metal price is irrelevant at this stage. I bought Global Minerals Ltd - GMLFF - (silver) for a few cents(!) and it went up 24.9% on Friday (one day). Looking at Global's chart one can see clearly the leverage is some hundreds of percent.

  • When You're Right, You're Still Wrong: GLD Hits 115 Bear Target [View article]
    My humble suggestion is to buy a promising junior miner not yet in production which does not have to bother with the present metal price at this stage. I bought Global Minerals Ltd (silver) - GMLFF - at the ridiculous price of a few cents, which today jumped 25% but whose leverage is many hundreds of percent, as shown on their yearly chart.

  • Goldman: Sell gold miner volatility in 2014 [View news story]
    Can't believe Goldman really has investors interests so much at heart. Sounds suspicious. Anyway, I am still going according to rational instincts. Silver mining prices, particularly, are screamingly low and have only UP to go. Just a matter of when, not if. Disparity between mind-boggling demand for physical silver/gold and indifference to firesale prices of miners can only last so long.

  • Who Should Invest In Precious Metals In These Times? [View article]
    I note you refer to the feckless bumbling on Iran. I strongly suspect that Obama is going for a quick bad deal in order to revert concentration on the US economy. But it seems to me that open-ending the problem will only lengthen uncertainty which could be worse for the US, leaving an open wound instead of operating on a very sick patient and stitching up the wound promoting faster healing.

    Either way may be positive for PM.

  • Thoughts For Those Who Buy Or Bought The Precious Metals Thesis [View article]
    Your sound articles are so comforting at a time when my patience and nerves are seriously tested. You make a strong point, among others, about China's unrelenting gold purchases, which seems to be ignored by gold rejectionists, regardless of the fact that we are living in an accelerating global village. I have both Endeavour and Fortuna which also add to my feeling that I must be doing something right.

    Also, a concern of mine is that at this time of jockeying for position, as it were, is whether I have in every case picked the best steeds (mix of metaphors maybe?). Any thoughts on that?

    Thanks once again.

  • Barrick's Pascua-Lama Announcement: Will Have A Huge Impact On Future Gold And Silver Supply [View article]
    Added to all the above is the fact that 40pc of the world's gold is historically from South Africa but that is changing due to insolvable labor problems there. This situation will not improve due to the fact that unique geologic conditions (narrow seams at tremendous depth) in South African gold mines require great numbers of manual workers as opposed to most mines where mechanization is taking over. Demands for higher wages cannot be met as SA gold mines will simply not be economical. So it is difficult to imagine that at some point, taking everything into account, that gold prices will not head dramatically north.

  • Precious Metals: A Tempered Case For Growth And Value [View article]
    Thanks Emmet. Your insightful analyses help build my self-confidence in my conviction with regard to my acquisitions in PM, tending mostly towards silver juniors and mid-tier.

  • Wrong About Gold Again? [View article]
    Well balanced objective article. It seems to me the bottom line is to follow the old slogan of: *When there is blood in the street, that's the time to buy* and now is that time. Also, I think the miners are a better bet than the metal - gold, silver, etc., as they are a lot more down than the metal itself and the junior miners offer the most leverage.

  • Which Side Of Goldman Sachs Is Right About Gold? [View article]
    My reaction to that just far-too-catchy *slam-dunk* remark in the light of Goldman Sachs buying makes me smile, combined with your common-sense analysis, makes me only want to hold on to my mining stocks of gold, silver very tight. Selling seems no option to me, however frustrated I feel right now. After all, for contrarians, now is the time to buy when there is *blood in the streets* and despair in the air.
