Investing in Mining Stocks - 24hgold
Little Faith, Not much Hope and Too much Charity
If we want to encourage the transfer of gold from those who wish to dispose of it to those who wish to acquire it, we must at all costs avoid a repeat of the state of affairs which existed in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In those days, when the purchasing power of gold reached unprecedented levels, we never read about Central Banks lending or selling their gold. Mining companies did not sell forward for fear of the price going higher. Now they are selling forward for fear of the price going lower! A self-fulfilling policy if ever they was one. But what really helps to keep the gold price affordable is the powerful message that the producers broadcast about their own perceptions as to the direction of the price. No one in his right mind would sell gold forward if he thought the gold price was going to rise. Investors in gold and gold shares have received that message, loud and clear, and have acted accordingly.

Is Gold Worth More Or Less Than Its $1900 High In 2011
One of the challenges with investing in precious metals is that there is so much distortion in the market that figuring out a true fair value is not always the easiest thing to do. Yet there are clues investors can look at that indicate that when the price starts to move, it won’t be by a small amount. Back in 2011 I was still working as an equity options trader on the New York Stock Exchange, and was about two years into my studies of the precious metals market. Following the collapse of the su

Gold Price Falls as Fed's Powell Speaks, US Data Miss Badly, Euro Confidence 'Elevated'
GOLD PRICES fell as new US Fed chair Jerome Powell began his first testimony to lawmakers on Tuesday, retreating to last week's closing level as the US Dollar rallied from a fresh drop on the currency market.

Gold is a Giant Ouija Board
We have been promising to get back to the topic of capital destruction, which we put on hiatus for the last several weeks to make our case that the interest rate remains in a falling trend. Today, we have a different way of looking at capital destruction. Socialism is the system of seeking out and destroying capital. Redistribution means taking someone’s capital and handing it over as income to someone else. The rightful owner would steward and compound it, not consume it. But the recipient of u

Banker Gold Price Suppression Currency Manipulations Have Persisted for 50 years
This 1967 meeting of the FOMC nearly 46 years ago is clear and indisputable evidence of gold price suppression and currency manipulation of the world's "free" and "open" market exchanges.  This criminal cabal has certainly built up their mechanisms since this time to conceal their sinister scheme from issuing dishonest money. It's blatant now and all of "in your face" is their behavioral response to inquiry. Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead. If you find this too cumbersome to read, the Fed

GOLD PRICES in the global wholesale center of London headed for the steepest 1-week drop of 2018 so far on Friday, holding a 1.7% loss against a stronger US Dollar as major government bond prices edged higher again from this month's sharp sell-off, nudging interest rates down. Failing to set a 4-year weekly closing high last Friday above $1354, gold prices today held around $1329 per ounce as the US Dollar retained most of this week's rally on t

Stock Market Volatility Attributed to 'Shenanigans'
Back in January, I discussed the likelihood that global equity markets were approaching simultaneous tipping points beyond which legions upon legions of GenX-ers and Millennials would be thrown to the wolves by failing to recognize the financial mania engulfing them. I alluded to it being "Time for the Beast to Exhale," and within a few days, my volatility trade (UVXY) exploded to the upside as the "beast," better known as the global stock market ascent, finally exhaled and fell 3,300 Dow Jones
