  • Don't Buy Gold Now, Wait Until It's Under $1,000 [View article]
    Doug,

    He copy/pastes his articles into a number of authors he follows. This is not the first time I have seen this missive today........... I suspect because I am early in my readings, I will see it again within the next half hour. Seems like when you post a comment, James, I get to see it under four different authors articles.

    You might as well as make some nickels on your thoughts. Why not just post these as your own articles rather than as comments to others articles?

  • BAML: Dollar bull trade world's most crowded [View news story]
    Is the dollar bull trade statistically the most crowded as the title suggests, or do the surveyed people just think it is the most crowded?

  • I See $2 A Gallon Gasoline This Summer [View article]
    I like the way you write. Very clear and easy to understand.

    I don't notice much mileage difference. But then again I rarely go anywhere in winter! I don't do mileage observations when doing short trips - doesn't do it justice. No matter what, mileage will be poor if only going a couple of miles.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Bogi,

    Wow......... just read your link. I was able to link to some you tube interviews with her husband which are quite good! Thanks for sharing.

    I would like to agree with you, Capt. However, here in the Midwest we do see a spike in gas prices, around this time of year. That is when the refineries switch from a winter blend to the summer blend. I do not know what that takes (someone invested in refineries maybe can shed light on what the blend differences are).

    Also, I suspect that prices are more affected by speculation than demand. Look at Wednesday's inventory report. A build around 3 times greater than expected. It should have moved WTI down at lest 3 or 4 bucks. Not saying good or bad, just saying that how the commodity is traded affects price heavily.

    At any rate, your logic is sound and I hope you are right.

  • The Case For A Gold Rally Grows In Strength [View article]
    Thanks for the heads up (no pun intended ; ^ )

    That little IHS ......... kinda looks like the right shoulder of a larger head and shoulders, too. Been awhile that I have seen a chart that could go either way. Both counts look viable.

    Actually I have a hankering for ending up in your blue box (your little IHS being stronger than the larger HS pattern). Have had that count for a while, done by hand months ago. I see it topping out around 1340 thereabouts, then the drop below 1000. I am not as short of term trader as you guys at the JNUG parties, but do see an up pattern to this point then the "final drop" - that I have been waiting almost a year for!

    Best of luck to all.

    You have posted this one all over SA. Are you running for office?

    Yes, gel....

    My biggest fear is not getting sick, or being lonely in my latter years.....

    My biggest fear in life is someone (gov't) coming along and taking everything I have ever worked very hard for and giving it to someone else.

    And your post points out just how hard to hide it really is.

    Hey Cap'n B,

    If you are a coin clunker, don't you want to play with the junk coins? If you clunk the numismatics, don't you degrade their condition and hence, their value drops? If you sold all your bullion, are you trading the ETF's now?

    Good to see you back. Its been a while. Take a long sail into Paradise over winter somewhere?

  • Gold Moving Up, But Watch Out For Whipsaw [View article]
    Yes, Ben, statistically when the market falls, any individual stock will fall with it. So in a major selloff, it doesn't matter how good a company is performing fundamentally, it will fall with the broad market 75% of the time.

  • Fear Is Saying Short SPY Now [View article]
    Good work, Ben. Thanks for the charts, CFE also. To me a chart is worth many words (not gonna say "1000 words" here as someone will want me to prove it and I don't want to waste time counting words : ^ ) Any way, this has been a very good discussion. Even though I don't count Grexit, Fiscal Cliff, Tapering, Ukraine, Cyprus, Ebola, Obama re-election, Russia ...and others (I would add the outrageous health costs to Lepoard's list), it all does make for good discussion.

    Thank you, everyone for your excellent work and contributions.

    The Blue Box still lives in your gold chart I see. Back up to the blue box is my primary count, but I like yours too. I would like us to be in 2 of 5 down, mainly because I am tired of waiting................ But we all know how "hopeium" works in the markets :^) Thanks again Ben for all the hard work you do here.

    Good Luck to all.
