Gold and Silver Investors Should Be Wary of Trade Talk Optimism and Buy the Dip

The stock market is rallying and precious metals are correcting sharply today. The prevailing trade is risk-on once again. The main driver is news that the U.S. and China said they would hold talks in Washington during early October, reigniting hopes for an eventual trade truce. But anyone paying attention knows how this works. With [...]

Gold Spikes to a 6-Year High Above $1,550

Gold has picked up where it left off on Friday. The safe-haven metal has spiked $20 higher above $1,550 in early Asian trading. It is now near the top-end of the short-term trend channel and the RSI is overbought, but the fundamental drivers of the price advance appear to be accelerating. Silver is also rallying [...]

Gold Breaks Major Technical Resistance and Could Climb Toward $3,000 by 2021

Gold has dipped back below $1,400 this morning, as investors believe the strong employment report reduces the odds of a rate cut this year. I believe they are weighing the significance of this one highly-manicured preliminary data point too heavily and the FED will still be forced to cut rates later this year. Therefore, I [...]

How Important is $1,400 Gold and Will the Rally Continue?

With the FED holding rates steady and saying they will do whatever is necessary to keep the economy expanding, forecasts quickly flipped from expectations of more rate hikes ahead to near certainty of a rate cut this year. This move was inevitable given the underlying fragility of the stock market recovery. This turning point in [...]

Drop Gold, Buy Bitcoin?

The cryptocurrency company Grayscale has launched a multi-million dollar marketing campaign imploring investors to drop gold and buy bitcoin. It is a slick video and the campaign is getting plenty of attention, but does it make any sense? The “Drop Gold” campaign kicked off Wednesday and features a 39-second commercial that shows a man and [...]

Is Litecoin Just a Testnet for Bitcoin or a Vastly Undervalued Cryptocurrency?

I read a critique on Litecoin recently. The basic premise was that Litecoin is just a testing ground or testnet for Bitcoin. The author seemed to insinuate that Litecoin had little value other than testing new technologies prior to Bitcoin implementing them and was not a valuable standalone cryptocurrency. Mike Novogratz also chimed in recently, [...]

Why These Lithium and Cobalt Companies May be the Ultimate Contrarian Play

Lithium and cobalt companies are a hidden gem in the mining sector. Lithium and cobalt, along with nickel, are the primary metals used in most modern batteries. 42% of the world’s cobalt production goes toward the creation of Lithium-ion cell batteries. According to the Cobalt Institute, lithium-ion batteries have higher energy density than other battery [...]

Central Bank Gold Demand Spikes to Highest Level in Nearly 50 Years!

There has been a fundamental shift in central banks’ behavior with respect to gold over the past decade. The 2008 financial crisis led central banks to re-evaluate the relevance and importance of gold on their balance sheets. Check out the sudden change in sentiment that occurred in 2009, as central banks shifted from being net [...]

Silver Shortage to Send Price Soaring Above $20 in 2019

Silver peaked just shy of $50 during April of 2011. The price has been correcting ever since, falling below $14 per ounce in 2016 and again late last year. But there is a silver lining to such a deep and protracted price correction. With silver prices under $20 per ounce for so long, a significant [...]

Gold Breaks Through $1,300, Set to Push Higher in 2019

The gold price finally pierced resistance at $1,300 on Friday, hitting a 7-month high! Why is this important? The $1,300 level has been pesky resistance roughly 12 times over the past 3 to 4 years. A definitive move above this price is a bullish signal that could create a little FOMO (fear of missing out) [...]
