  • GLD: Bigger Moves Are Coming [View article]
    Have a great time fishing! Don't think about the market. And instead of a second Cadillac, how about buying a tent and boat? Seriously, good luck, be safe and have fun.

  • GLD: The Confusion And Whipsaw Continue [View article]
    Agreed, Gel, and perhaps that is why (like Ukraine), Middle East unrest also is not going to move the price of gold. Hmmm, if it hasn't moved the price in the last 1000 years, will it affect the price of gold in the next 1000?

    Well, if Ukraine and Middle East unrest are off the table, what else could move the price of gold? Guess I will have to stick with sentiment.

    I remember, Charles, when you wrote about the ebola black swan. I didn't write you off, but wondered how long before it hits mainstream media.

    Re: local news. I flew a news chopper a number of years and even I had a hard time staying awake ;^) Seriously, it is a shame how local news is "dummied down" until you realize what you said - the public just doesn't care unless it hits their wallet, and they can't wait until weather and sports come on.

    But to keep this on topic..... C'mon, People.....Ukraine? Again? Nah, I don't buy it. If Ukraine was going to move gold, it would have a while back. Even when the airliner got shot down, gold spiked on immediate emotion, but gave it all back (and then some) the next day.

  • 8 Indicators That Tell Us Where Gold Might Go Next [View article]
    I believe that clause is also in the GLD prospectus. I wonder how many actual institutions own the 75% shares. My guess is just a few.....

    One might want to trade the ETF's and buy physical for the long term.

  • Short Cheniere Energy After This Meteoric 3000% 4-Year Run [View article]
    "So to the editors of Seeking alpha....."make up your freaking minds""

    I would rather make up my OWN fracking mind after being able to analyse multiple sides of an issue. The line between education and indoctrination.

    Thank you, Seeking Alpha, for letting authors present more than just one side.

    Tawes,

    Good point. I have to see more days of all asset classes decline like they did last Thrusday to take this "correction" seriously. It will happen, just don't know how long one has to wait. Sounds like you think it could be this week? What causes you to believe that?

    Good article Doug. I kinda took you for a "closet elliottician" for a while now, but I guess you are no longer practicing Elliott Wave Theory in the dark.

    One other indicator that I like, too, is if all asset classes drop simultaneously like last Thursday. But then on Friday with gold and treasuries up, the S&P drop just looks like a down day. Will have to see how this plays out. But if things begin to look like more "last Thursdays" are ahead there might be your smack down. People are buying on margin at a record pace and that may cause across the board liquidation.

    Thank you for sharing your ideas - all very good points.

  • GLD: Whipsaw Not Likely Over [View article]
    Yep. I look for an all asset class decline - then we will know if the "correction" is real. Saw it yesterday. Not saying "this is it" (I will leave that to the REAL elliotticians). But a decline in the major asset classes together will at least get my interest.

  • An End To Our Relationship With Yahoo, A New Era For Equity Research [View article]
    Very much agree with all you have said here.

    Yahoo! Finance has really gone downhill in the last year. I hardly look at it anymore - mainly stop in to see volume on individual names a couple times a day. That's it.

    Best of luck, SA, and all who participate here.

  • Kurdish oil to be seized following order and arrest warrant [View news story]
    Does it just seem to me that whenever the US has a choice to make, that lately there is a greater than 50% chance the US gets it wrong? I don't get it.

    I hope that ship is released soon and the Kurds can complete their chosen transaction.

  • Gold slides to lowest level in 5 weeks [View news story]
    Brian,

    I went to the link and read the article. It states “We expect gold prices to drop to $1,050 by the end of 2014, maintaining our previous forecast. Acceleration in the US economic recovery story remains the key driver behind the lower gold price forecast,” .

    The $1200 they cited was its "2014 full-year price average call unchanged at $1,195 per ounce and also kept the forecast unchanged at $1,200 per ounce out to 2017".

    So, I think the $1050 was an absolute low price forecast and the $1200 average full year price.

    So, go back and reread your link and see what you think.

    Thanks for the info.

    I know death is not funny, but that was hilarious!!!

    Duvets are great in winter, but I am sure they would loose their "fluffy" if washed as often as sheets are (or not washed at all -a far worse scenario).

  • A Green Light For Gold? [View article]
    Maniad and CoinDog,

    Found it. Typed in "Peter Schiff was Right Original " and got "Peter Schiff was Right (2006-2007 Edition) ". Its interesting for sure!!! If you have 10 minutes, it is worth watching. Throw in another 5 minutes and catch "... - Taper Edition" also.

    Thanks for the heads up. They were worth watching.
