With the third quarter’s earnings season now underway, the gold miners will soon join in and report their latest results.  No data is more highly anticipated by investors, for good reason.  Quarterly reports dispel the dense fogs of herd sentiment that usually obscure gold stocks, revealing their operations’ underlying fundamental realities.  Q3’17’s upcoming results are likely to prove quite bullish for this neglected sector. Four times a year publicly-traded

Gold Readying to Rally
Gold suffered a sharp pullback this past month, spawning bearish sentiment.  Futures speculators fled on surging Fed-rate-hike odds and new stock-market record highs.  That pounded gold lower despite strong investment demand.  This healthy sentiment-rebalancing retreat has left gold ready to rally again.  Both its technicals and seasonals are very bullish, and futures speculators’ selling overhang has considerably abated. On September 7th, gold powered 1.1% hig

  Gold Is 'Money' Because It Is Plentiful, Not Because It Is Scarce 
Gold, and its brother silver, have always been the basis of money, back to the beginnings of “money,” in the late fourth millennium B.C. Already by 2000 B.C., gold and silver had been “money” for over a thousand years–the entire history of “civilization” on this planet. Gold was still the basis of money in the 1960s, in an unbroken line stretching back to the beginnings of history. One somewhat counterintuitive requirement for “money” is that it does not have a utilitarian purpose; at least, no

Peak Gold: Is It Real?

A pause in the price action is normal around these expiry events. The October options contract is expiring, which is recognized by traders as an important one. Traders will now focus on December options. This is the short-term gold chart. A medium term view of the price action. From a technical perspective, all the current price movement in the

Gold Investment Resuming
Gold has surged dramatically to major breakouts since its usual summer-doldrums lows.  That’s naturally rekindled interest in this leading alternative investment, despite the record-high stock markets.  Investors are starting to return to gold again to prudently diversify their stock-heavy portfolios.  That’s very bullish for gold, as investment capital inflows can persist for months or even years.  This shift is most evident in GLD.
