Valuing Mining Stocks - In Defense Of Net Asset Value
While browsing the various fundamental evaluations of mining companies made by investors on internet message boards, I have consistently seen two valuation methodologies - the in situ method and the cash flow method - used frequently, while the traditional net asset value (NAV) method used by professionals is neglected or not used at all. The NAV method, I believe, is superior to the other two, and the following is a defense of this valuation technique.

A beginner's guide to investing in Gold 
One’s motivation for buying gold is fundamental to deciding in which form you should buy it. Are you a speculator, investor or saver? Do you wish to take a short term speculative position in gold? Are you investing for the short, medium or long term? Or are you diversifying, saving or using gold as a form of financial insurance?

Gold and Silver Commercial Traders Begin to Cover Short Positions
Does the trend change in the short position of commerical traders signal a bottom for precious metals? Gold and silver posted a strong start to the year in 2017, despite the December rate hike. This was a repeat of last year, when the December 2015 Federal Reserve rate hike was followed by a massive rally in precious metals. However, both gold and silver have pulled back sharply over the past few weeks. Gold is down $60 or 4.5% to $1,200, while silver is down $1.40 or 7.5% to $17 per ounce. The

Gold Miners’ Q4’16 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have corrected hard in recent weeks, hammered by a gold pullback driven by soaring Fed-rate-hike odds.  Like any considerable selloff, this has spawned serious bearish sentiment.  But the gold miners’ underlying operating fundamentals remain quite strong, proving the recent selling was purely psychological.  This sector’s just-reported fourth-quarter results are impressive, very bullish. Four times a year publicly-traded companies releas

A Major New Source of Gold Demand is Upon Us – Muslim Gold
Most analysis of gold and silver markets tends to be U.S.-centric. However, the next secular trend in precious metals markets may have less to do with U.S. debt, U.S. politics, the U.S. central bank, and the U.S. dollar and more to do with a gigantic new source of demand. It’s not the 1970s anymore. Back then, big moves in the metals markets were centered on United States. The great gold and silver mania of the late 1970s was driven by inflation fears and a rush of speculative demand. Although c

No Surprise in Recent Moves in Gold and Silver Markets
Given the big down move this week in the precious metals, it would certainly follow that the activities of the Commercials would be no surprise. They matched all of the demand brought to bear on the Crimex gold pit by selling over 40,000 contracts representing over 4,000,000 ounces of synthetic gold, and then nudged the gold market off the ledge. They did it with much-revered aplomb, but nowhere more daunting than in the nearly $1.00 collapse in silver that had the blogosphere buzzing last week.

Will Gold Continue to Drop? Rate Hikes, COMEX Shorts, Divergent Tops, Oh My!!
The gold price has dropped $40 or more than 3% over the past week from $1,255 to a low of $1,215. Silver has shed nearly $1 or 5.4% from $18.40 to $17.40. Sentiment has turned bearish and many analysts are now calling for precious metals to decline to new 2017 lows in the days and weeks ahead. Fear the FED? The main driver of the drop in the gold price has been a dollar rally, driven by increased odds of a March rate hike. Several FED officials have made comments suggesting they are ready to hik

Trapped Longs In Miners As Gold Poised For Fed Fuelled Fall
The Fed will hike rates this month and signal further hikes to come. Gold prices have yet to fully digest this reality, and therefore there is a strong case for a major move lower in the yellow metal. A Le Pen victory in France could derail the Fed’s plans for a follow up hike in June, but in the short term the gold market is vulnerable to a sharp move lower. There are a number of trapped speculative longs in the futures and mining stocks and we are approaching a period of seasonal weakness. We

Bitcoin Price Doubles in the Past 4 Months to Overtake Gold
As of March 2nd, 2017, one bitcoin is now worth more than one ounce of gold. The price of bitcoin recently made a new all-time high at $1,295, having doubled in just over 4 months! We had anticipated that one bitcoin would be worth more than one ounce of gold at some point in 2017. However, the point of crossing parity occurred much earlier in the year than expected. Gold dipped below $1,240 yesterday while bitcoin spiked above $1,250. The gold price has continued to slip to the current price o

Gold Pressured By Increasing Odds of March FED Rate Hike
The gold price has corrected by roughly $25 over the past few days. This pullback has been driven by increased odds of a Fed rate hike during March. Federal Reserve officials have been making hawkish comments lately, which has been supportive of the USD index and thus bearish for precious metals. After hitting a 2017 high of $1,265 on Monday, the gold price has since dropped back to $1240 today. On Monday the odds of a March rate hike were around 40%, but they have since increased to around 70%

Bitcoin Rockets to Multi-Year High of $1,132 as Winklevoss ETF Nears SEC Decision
Bitcoin was one of the best performing assets that you could own during 2016. The price rocketed from $428 to $968, an advance of 126%. It has since continued higher and just hit its second highest price ever at $1,132 today. In fact, bitcoin has topped $1,000 for the longest stretch in history over the past two weeks! The price spike above $1,000 that occurred during the first week of 2017 was the highest price for bitcoin since late 2013. Most mainstream analysts though that price spike was u

The Return of Stagflation - Gary Christenson
Steve St. Angelo wrote an insightful article relating the silver to gold ratio to the S&P 500 Index. I encourage you to read his articles and analysis. My commentary on the silver to gold ratio: The following graph shows the SI/GC ratio versus the S&P500 index beginning in August 1971 when President Nixon severed the final gold backing of the US dollar. Currency in circulation, debt, consumer cost of living, and most prices including gold, silver, crude oil, and the S&P rose in devalued dol

Bloomberg News Admits The Fed Manipulates Gold - Dave Kranzler
“Yellen Can’t Halt Trump Gold Rally That Funds Bet Against” – That was the headline in a Bloomberg news report that was released on Sunday afternoon. There’s a lot going on in that headline – none of it accurate except for the fact that gold is moving higher despite the efforts of western Central Banks to cap the price. The basic premise of the report is that gold is moving higher in defiance of the Fed’s apparent move to raise interest rates. Reading through the report reveals even more m

U.S. Political Crisis Foments While China India Devour Gold - Dave Kranzler
The demand for gold in India and China so far this year has soared, a fact which is completely ignored by the western financial media. The ex-duty Indian gold import premiums (approximately $10 earlier this week) are quite remarkable, “as the need to import kilo bars only arises if Indian demand is not satisfied by Dore imports (which had a duty advantage of $15.52/oz this afternoon) and smuggled gold. Reports of apprehensions at Indian airports are continuing to appear, indicating that s
