Ferguson says HUI has turned up; Speck's 'Gold Cartel' reviewed favorably
The TF Metal Report's Turd Ferguson argues today that the HUI gold mining index has bottomed and promises large gains for the remainder of the year. His commentary is headlined "As the HUI Turns" and it's posted at the TF Metals Report here: And independent investor Ben Kramer-Miller, writing at Seeking Alpha, reviews GATA consultant Dimitri Speck's book "The Gold Cartel."

Gold seasonal uptrend and what to watch for

Just Another Series of Unfortunate Events
If you look at the warehouse report for Friday you will see that almost 600,000 ounces of gold took a hike out of the JP Morgan Comex metals warehouse.  That was almost half of their total gold.  Let's see where it turns up, since nothing seems to actually leave the Comex metals warehouses anymore these days. Do you think that the charges that JPM was fudging its reports to the CFTC on trader's metal positions was any factor in this?  Probably not.  But there seems to be a decided erosion of co

Sowing the Seeds of the Next Depression
By Toby Connor, GoldScentsIn their infinity wisdom the Fed thinks they have rescued the economy by inflating asset prices and creating a so called "wealth affect". In reality they have created the conditions for the next Great Depression.Over the last two years the Fed has increasingly intervened in the market to prevent normal corrective moves.

Precious metals drifted lower over the week in quiet trading. The bears took comfort in the lack of a positive price reaction to political news from the Ukraine and Gaza, and from economic surveys released in the US which disappointed analysts looking for signs of economic growth. Even the IMF downgraded its forecasts for the US economy, and the 10-year treasury yield fell back to 2.46%, having rallied up to 2.65% from the May low at 2.41%. This is shown in the chart below.

The World Cup final is on Sunday, and the punters have Germany and Argentina as fairly even odds with a bit of an edge to the Germans.  I would call it pretty even, especially since it is only one game, and a typically low scoring one at that which can turn on a few events and an emotional tide. Speaking of too close to call, gold and silver turned in a satisfactory week's performance, and are on the verge of breakouts. We have been here before. Let's see if they can find firmer ground and s
