  • Is India Now The Catalyst For Gold? [View article]
    I just shake my head at all the people attacking and taunting Avi every week about his articles when they don't agree. Past and present...YOU know who you are!

    He is here to trade and share his point of view. By considering different perspective it helps ones success.

    If you are so adamant about manipulation, feds, full moon, end of the world, bla bla should be thankful you can buy low...

    I agree with redrummd in that "I find Avi's articles very informative and many of the comments helpful but I find personal attacks to be a useless waste of my time in sorting through what is useful."

    And good simple advice from gelstretch.

  • Are $1400 Gold And $26 Silver About To Be Seen? [View article]
    Hi Avi,

    Thank you for your article and kudo for for being strong for the family!

    Just looked at the charts again and technically agree it's coiling and a break down is more likely than a break up. I have some core holdings in pm and trading miners but ready to go heavier either direction.

    As for all the negative people...just ignore them. The more you reply to them, the more hyped they get. They just like to be right and not gain from trading. I was once one of those people that read zerohedge, kingworldnews, etc until my account told me otherwise and not to fight the trend or signals. Technical analysis do the talking now. These people don't realise if you can read it, so can all other people you are trading against.

  • Ben's 2014 Guide To Precious Metals Investing [View article]
    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for writing this.

    I agree there are lots of duds out there and you have given us some compelling reasons to buy wisely. I have started small positions in some juniors like santacruz along with streamers I own.

    Agree that silver should outperform gold and that gold might still have possible downside according to the charts.

    I hope being contrarians bodes well for us and that PM will go ten fold. Though I don't ever want to see the time when we are afraid and have to hold physical PM because if that's the case, there won't be much joy spending it.

  • Metals Setting Up To Kill Remaining And Newly Inaugurated Bulls In 2014 [View article]
    TA is the best tool you can use to trade because you don't need millions of hours researching or even know why. Also, many people trade with TA so when they trade a set-up, it builds up momentum.

    Who cares if there is manipulation or not. When the chart tells you to buy or sell, just do it and ride the wave with the manipulators/crowd. Be on the right side of the trade. No need to reason out things and complicate things.

    If one is worried and is a perma-bull on PM then buy the physical and/or short the paper according to your 'sleep at night' factor.

  • Precious metals continue to sell off sharply, gold (GLD) -4% to $1,440/oz., the lowest level in about 2 years. Off 6.7% to $24.58, silver's (SLV) back to fall 2010 levels. [View news story]
    That might be all true but why not make coin and play the game with the 'manipulators'. Short the E and buy the physical with the proceeds. Haha.

  • Gold may have had its "last hurrah," says SocGen, expecting $1,375/oz. by the end of the year thanks to an improving U.S. economy bringing with it a stronger dollar and higher interest rates. SocGen also notes the turn in professional sentiment as evidenced by heavy ETF redemptions. GLD -0.9% premarket. [View news story]
    I am a PM bull at heart due to fundamentals but market can be irrational longer than most think. The gold and silver monthly charts are showing a falling wedge. I'd rather be rich than be right and will play with the big boys accordingly. Good luck to all.
