Mining Companies Setting Up to Provide Massive Returns?

By Thursday, February 26, 2015

Mining Companies Set Massive ReturnsThe amount of pessimism towards gold companies is severe. If you have been listening to the mainstream financial outlets, you may be convinced by now that they are the worst investment you can add to your portfolio. But I disagree with this notion. In fact, I believe mining companies are setting up to provide investors with solid returns in the long-term.
As it stands, I see three reasons to at… Read More

Depressed Silver Prices Presenting Bigger Opportunity Than Gold?

By Friday, February 20, 2015

Silver Prices Presenting Bigger Opportunity Than GoldAs prices for silver and gold started falling in 2013, my prediction was that lower prices for the precious metals would cause miners to cut back on the exploration and development of new mines, eventually stunting supply. And that is exactly what has happened. In the case of silver, the cutback on supply has been significant.
Production of silver from mines in Canada, a major silver-producing country, is collapsing.

Derivatives: The $563-Trillion Reason to Look at Gold

By Thursday, February 19, 2015

Reason to Look at GoldInterest rates in the U.S. economy have been remarkably low since 2007. We’re now hearing many analysts and pundits suggesting they will rise sometime this year. Unfortunately, there isn’t an exact time given, but when we look to the Federal Reserve, it seems very adamant about it, too.
Officials at the Federal Reserve are continuously warning that higher interest rates are coming. The most recent example would be the comment… Read More

Three Economic Developments to Cause Sharp Rise in Gold Prices?

By Thursday, February 12, 2015

Economic Development to Rise in Gold PricesFor the next little while, I am watching three events—I’ll call them developments—very closely. These developments could impact gold prices and cause sharp movements to the upside in a very short time. What are these developments? Talks of Greece’s potential exit from the eurozone, rising interest rates, and an economic slowdown in the global economy.
Greece to Exit from Eurozone?
Not too long ago, Greece elected into power a radical… Read More

Is the Gold Trade Over? Not According to These Metrics

By Thursday, February 5, 2015

Gold TradeAsk anybody about why gold was in a bull market between 2002 and 2012, and they will most likely tell you that it was due to declining interest rates. Now, if you ask anybody if gold is even worth looking at as an investment, you’ll likely be told that it’s useless and does no good for an investor’s portfolio. The rationale given for this argument generally includes the sentiment that… Read More

Volatility in Global Currencies Good News for Gold Investors

By Thursday, January 29, 2015

Volatility in Global CurrenciesAs it stands, we are seeing wild swings in the currency markets. The only currency that’s performing well is the U.S. dollar. Other currencies, like the Canadian dollar, euro, Japanese yen, Australian dollar, and British pound, are in a definitive downtrend. The Swiss franc is seeing historical moves due to its central bank’s interventions.
How long these trends will last is hard to tell, but from my experience, I know… Read More

Why Are My Super Bowl Chicken Wings Costing So Much More This Year?

By Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Proof InflationListen to the mainstream media and they will have you convinced there is no inflation in the U.S. economy. The recent decline in gas prices has some saying deflation will prevail in the U.S. Their arguments are rather naïve; they say lower gas prices will eventually result in lower costs for producers and so on and so forth…
The logic makes sense, but this is not what’s really happening in… Read More

Two Factors to Continue Pushing Gold Prices Higher in 2015

By Monday, January 26, 2015

Gold Prices Higher in 2015Three weeks into 2015 and gold prices are already up 10% for the year. Gold stocks we have been recommending in our paid-for newsletters had a spectacular start to the year, having rebounded nicely from their oversold levels. Going forward, I expect the gold prices to move higher and with this, gold mining companies should continue to perform well.
The chart below clearly shows the breakout by gold prices from… Read More

Supply/Demand Equation for Gold Says Prices to Rise More

By Friday, January 16, 2015

SupplyDemand Equation for GoldIn 2013, when gold prices took a severe beating, and through 2014, when prices were not moving, I was one of the very few who kept on saying the depressed prices of gold bullion were a great opportunity for investors.
So far this year, gold investments have been hands down the best performer. I’m not saying this to pat myself on the back—far from it. Gold prices are up 4.4%… Read More

Inflation and Weak Economic Conditions: Two Reasons to Invest in Gold?

By Thursday, January 15, 2015

Invest in GoldWhen it comes to stocks and bonds, they may be fairly easy to price at times. This is mainly due to the fact that they make dividend or coupon payments to investors. Gold, on the other hand, is different and can be very difficult to price, since it doesn’t make any payments.
To look at where gold prices may be headed next, I look at a few factors including inflation… Read More
