Brent Cook's Primer on Reading Drill Result Press Releases
The Gold Report: After the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention in March, you said that the next 12?18 months could define how investors, speculators and mining companies perceive and value both the junior and major mining sectors. That was before the volatility of mid-April. With higher production costs being the new normal, what percentage of miners can make money at the current gold price? Brent Cook: That is a tough call because companies use different methods to repo

The Coherent, The Foremost, and the Remarkable
The previous week was quite rich in important events. Silver rallied significantly on Wednesday and mining stocks underperformed significantly on Thursday. Gold declined significantly after moving to the previous high, but without a breakdown to new 2018 lows the situation remains tense, especially that the USD Index is fighting to break above an important support / resistance line. These signals may seem random, but if you’ve seen similar cases many times before, it all becomes coherent. Especi

2018: The Most Golden Year
The world’s most awesome asset is taking the world gold community into the new year with grand style. Gold has stunned most analysts and roared to my $1310 target price without missing a heartbeat! The bull wedge pattern is both majestic and powerful. The ultimate price target of this pattern is a minimum price of $1350 and arguably as high as $1490. When “QE to Infinity” and the death of the American economy was accepted as “the new normal” in both the gold and mainstream communities, I argue

Blame it on Global Warming!
CONCLUSIONS Laying blame on global warming and promoting destructive financial practices will be used as long as they are helpful to the financial and political elite. The Russians did not cause global warming or a dozen other problems, but the accusations are good distractions. Gold and silver bullion and cash are less controllable by the elite, so they are discouraged. I encourage you to buy more silver! Call Miles Franklin.

Platinum Betting Turns Positive as Gold Bullion Finds Another 'Event-Driven Bid'
GOLD BULLION slipped together with silver and platinum ahead of the US open on Monday, down 0.5% from last week's 1-month high just below $1300 per ounce as world stock markets fell following the weekend's collapse of coalition government talks in Germany. With pundits calling it Germany's "worst political crisis in decades", current Chancellor Angela Merkel met this morning with President Frank-Walter Steinmeier after the Free Demo

Hypocrisy Most Foul. . .
As you all know by now, I have absolutely zero knowledge of anything related to the "blockchain" technology, which translates into "I don't own Bitcoin and would not touch HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (HIVE:TSX.V; PRELF:OTC) with a barge pole." That also means that I am constantly being reminded, primarily by those considerably younger than me, that geriatric anchoring is costing me (and my readers) a great deal of money by avoiding the space which, as you can see from the chart below, has

Silver Bullion Prices Set to Soar
Silver bullion prices are expected to jump as solar and smartphone demand rises and the Fed tries to stave off economic weakness Gold prices have far outpaced gains in silver so far this year, but silver will emerge as the winner for the second year in a row. With a per-ounce price of $17.41 for silver futures as of Friday, analysts say the white metal is poised for a big climb, particularly as the gold-to-silver ratio stands well above historical averages. “Silver is definitely undervalued com

Gold: Key Rebuy Prices
It’s not easy to build wealth in any asset class. It’s even more difficult to retain it. This is the short-term gold chart. Over the past week or two, my wealth building mantra has been, “Book profit now”. From a technical standpoint, the world’s mightiest metal has begun to show signs of “head and shouldering”. Head and shoulders top patterns are negative for the price, and it’s normal for them to appear when gold reaches strong resistance. Strong resistance is not created out of thin air

The coming gold and silver moves in the next few months will really surprise most investors as market volatility increases substantially. It seems right now that “All (is) quiet on the Western Front” as Erich-Maria Remarque wrote about WWI. Ten years after the Great Financial Crisis started and nine years after the Lehman collapse, it seems that the world is in better shape than ever. Stocks are at historical highs, interest rates at historical lows, house prices are booming again and consumers

Forget Oil Prices, Oil Majors Are A Buy
Oil stocks have been performing dismally this year, and oil prices have failed to sustain a rally, so why are these stocks still attractive? Low valuations and high dividend yields, say analysts.  Supermajor oil companies are living a new reality that is based on new profits in a forever-low oil price environment—and globally, analysts say, the oil sector is a great investment. Value has returned, because international oil giants have adapted. The initial enthusiasm over OPEC’s production cut de

Stock investors are rejoicing about stock markets making new highs in many countries, totally oblivious of the risks or the reasons. It seems that this is an unstoppable rally in a “new normal” market paradigm. No major increase is expected in the inflation rate or the historically low interest rates. The present rally has lasted 8 years since the 2009 low. There is virtually no fear in markets so investors see no reason why this favourable climate would not continue for another 8 years at least

Enter The NatGas Cartel
The King Dollar is mortally wounded. Many notice but the masses seem largely unaware. Since 1971, the Gold Standard has been removed from its anchor position. But since 1973, the Petro-Dollar has taken its place. It has called for crude oil sales led by the Saudis and OPEC to be transacted in USDollar terms, for oil surpluses to be stored in USTreasury Bonds, and for some kickbacks from the Saudis to the USMilitary complex for weapons purchases. Of course, the US is ready willing and able to cre

Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

Soaring Debt = Slow Growth = Even More Debt = Systemic Crisis
It's just common sense: Borrow too much money and the weight of this debt makes it hard to do things that used to be easy. This truism is now (finally!) hitting home, and blame is being apportioned.

A Bumper Under that Silver Elevator, Report 14 May, 2017
If you can believe the screaming headline, one of the gurus behind one of the gold newsletters is going all-in to gold, buying a million dollars of mining shares. If (1) gold is set to explode to the upside, and (2) mining shares are geared to the gold price, then he stands to get seriously rich(er). We are not mining experts, but we will address (2) by saying that mining shares only go up if the input costs don’t go up as much as the price of gold. And if the company keeps efficiency up, and co

42 Of All The Gold In The World Buys 5 Companies ONLY
by Egon von Greyerz “This is the new normal”! That is what a professional advisor stated at a recent family office conference in London after I had outlined the global risks due to the credit and asset bubbles. This is what is so frightening about any top in the economy. Peak optimism and peak asset prices normally go hand in hand. I did not experience the 1929 crash or the depression, but a few quotes from that time expresses the normal euphoria at a market peak. “We in America today are neare
