  • COMEX Gold Inventories: Registered Gold Drops To New Lows [View article]
    Gold (the metal) will hit $800-900 before it turns around making Silver (the metal) return to $40-50 for a better gold to Silver ratio than the present 65 to 1. Gold's too high and Silver's too low. And no one will ever know what's right until the Fed and Bernanke quit printing money 24/7 - that's the only reason the Stock market is going up, there's no reason to save money at 0.1% interest.

  • Gold hasn't been this deep in the buy zone since early 2005 as CFTC data show a massive exit of large speculator net long positions. What this says about the long-term trend is a question of debate, but it's probably not the worst short-run indicator. GLD +0.9% premarket, continuing a minor bounce since the metal fell below $1,200/ounce last week. [View news story]
    you wrote: How can the Fed keep burping out bucks with nothing to back them up? See that little switch over there on the press? Keep it clicked "On" and keep the Green Ink levels full. ...and Uncle Ben strokes your head after a glass of warm milk so you can sleep. There, there, it will be okay. There's nothing to worry about, Dear. Uncle Ben, Bro' Barry, and Uncle Eric have everything under control.

    thanks, agree with you. But the market on Wall Street doesn't give a damn about keeping Gold miners in biz, for that matter Post VersaLog Slide Rules, Buggy whip makers, GM, or ATARI either.
    Perhaps I should say "touch 900-1000" since I don;t know any better than anyone else about predicting the future, hence YMMV.

    cars? Okay to own for future value. Keep them safe however.
    Good wine? Nope, a small window of heat and they are vinegar when opened. stamps? Okay to own if they are MNH and XF-S and kept in Showgards. Coins? Okay if they are graded and not stolen and used for buying beer at the 7-11 one Saturday night.

    Gold to 800 and Silver to 50. By October to December, and that restores the 16:1 ratio we miss now with 65 to 1.

    Stocks? Not until Barry is out and a conservative (not Republican) allows this great country to get back on its feet.

    what's left? the BIBLE and Prayer and FOX TV.

    I'm looking for Gold, the metal, to touch 800-900 before taking off again. Silver must rise from its current level to make the ratio tighter than 65 to 1 currently. YMMV.

  • Gold Miners Are Poised For A Rebound [View article]
    I am looking for Gold to hit 800-900 before a rebound. Silver will surge in the meanwhile to regain a better ratio than 65 to 1 currently.

  • Thursday's Action Suggests Silver Is Worthless But Is It? [View article]
    Christopher, I could not agree with you more, on everything. I am into SLV for one reason, liquidity. Otherwise you have been reading my mind as the ration comes together tighter than 65:1 due to electronics useage and demand alone. My prediction is Gold to $800-900 and Silver, the metal, up to $40-50 to correct this imbalance. That would easily double Silver holdings value, and within a year at the expense of Gold stashes..

    It also reminds me of the old math problem: How many jumps does it take for the frog to get out of the well? I see the frog sinking deeper into the well to 800-900 by late summer.

    Gold to $800, Silver to $50 - Late summer. It's there we have our 16:1 ratio.
    However, If Gold goes UP instead of DOWN, if lifts Silver higher. You COULD buy a Gold plated Block of Tungsten, it weighs the same,, ie SpGr is the same. LOL.

  • Ariad's (ARIA -4.5%) slides on reports that a growing number of tools are allowing many cancer patients to skip chemotherapy or other cancer treatments. Also, ongoing trials of its experimental cancer drug AP26113 has only clouded the picture regarding its potential. A smaller proportion of patients saw their tumors shrink than shown in a previous release and it's unclear whether 2 patient deaths were caused by the drug or something else. Analysts expect more clarity when ARIA presents more-mature data at June's ASCO cancer meeting. [View news story]
    Sure, why not blame the "death prone" patient on the drug trying to save their life?. I am not giving up on this company. I have pushed tougher drugs than this that made it well. Ex Pharma rep.

  • What Does The Gold/Silver Ratio Tell Us Now? [View article]
    I always thought GLD and SLV followed the price of real Gold and Silver, Duh! and so at the historic 16:1 ratio either Silver must rise to $50 an ounce or Gold falls to $800 for this ratio. I'm betting by summer 2013 that Gold (real metal) will be close to $800-900 and Silver close to $40-45. Let's see.
