Mike Kosares: Anti-gold scare tactics aren't very effective lately
The anti-gold propaganda of mainstream financial news organizations is getting tedious, Mike Kosares of Centennial Precious Metals in Denver writes today, the more so because a little research into the price predictions of gold's disparagers finds that they are usually wrong. Kosares' commentary is headlined "Press' Anti-Gold Scare Tactics Largely Ineffective" and it's posted at Centennial's Internet site,, here:

Gold Can?t Glitter
By Warren BevanVolatility reigned supreme again this past week as many stocks look to have put lows in now just as earnings season is really heating up.Lots of big companies are reporting in the weeks ahead and could move this market and stocks higher if earnings are good.At least I hope that’s what happens.We’re still mostly in a cash position with a few trades here and there but we should be able to pick up quite a few stocks this coming week with so many lows now in.As for the precious metals

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Counting Blessings and Tender Mercies
The markets were quiet today, for a stock option expiration ahead of a three day weekend. Next Thursday there will be an option expiration on the Comex for precious metals on Thursday the 24th. I would expect it to be relatively quite since May is not a major contract month. There were more deliveries on the April contract declared, but almost no activity in the Comex warehouses. Every person must have a purpose that takes them outside of themselves.  And so I thank God for the opportunity

Merger talks between gold giants Barrick and Newmont break down
By Gillian Tan, Alistair MacDonald, and Dana Mattioli The Wall Street Journal Friday, April 18, 2014 Barrick Gold Corp. and Newmont Mining Corp. recently held abortive talks over a deal that would have combined the world's two largest gold producers at a time when they are battling a sharp drop in the price of gold, according to people familiar with the matter. The two companies had intended to announce a deal as early as Tuesday, one of the people said. They have discussed combining a number of

Investors Ignore Frightful Geopolitics 
When the former Soviet Union collapsed almost 25 years ago, most global strategic forecasters assumed that the U.S. would adapt pragmatically to her new status of sole world superpower. Instead she has pursued a variety of misguided nation-building adventures and has largely shrunk from her primary responsibility of neutralizing the ambitions of petty dictators around the world. From this perspective, America's multi-generational expenditures on military personnel and equipment has become more o

Taxation Nation
Lots to get to today, as aside from my daily topic, I feel it imperative to commentate on the recent, “counterintuitive” market action.  With so many cataclysmic political and economic events occuring simultaneously, TPTB have gone into “manipulation hyperdrive” in their ongoing, inevitably doomed task of maintaining the façade of stabilty, “recovery,” and “low inflation.” And no example of such “ball juggling” could be more evident than the past two days’ “hail mary” equity rallies, coupled wit

Reuters Omits Grey Areas on Gold in China
More evidence that the mainstream financial media often gets it wrong when reporting on precious metals in general and gold in particular when it comes to reporting on anything other than its price comes via this story at Reuters on Tuesday. It seized on a few comments at the tail end of a World Gold Council report to craft the sensationally bearish China may have 1,000 tonnes of gold tied in financing – WGC which was not only misleading, but violated some very important rules about context.

Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Silver and Miners Still Disappoint
Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (full) in gold, silver, and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. Yesterday, we emphasized that the situation in the mining stock sector was bearish. We wrote the following: One could argue that the general stock market also declined and it was this factor that caused the decline in miners. Yes, stocks declined overall, but if the mining stocks and precious metals sector in general wasn’t weak and about to decline anyw

Wall Street Journal spins a gold-bullish report to bearish
By Tatyana Shumsky and Chao Deng The Wall Street Journal Tuesday, April 15, 2014 China's appetite for gold is waning after a decadelong buying spree, suppressed by the country's economic slowdown and constrained credit markets. Demand in the world's biggest gold consumer is likely to stay flat in 2014, according to estimates from the World Gold Council. Gold demand in China has expanded every year since 2002, when it declined, according to the industry group, whose forecasts are closely watched

How I Intend to Survive the Meltdown of America 
It is with a troubled heart that I sit down to write today, there being reports of casualties in new fighting in eastern Ukraine. I worry, of course, about my friends and students in the country who may well be in physical danger soon, if the conflict escalates. But that’s personal; as an investment analyst, it’s the financial war the Russians seem quite willing to wage that really has my attention. It should have yours as well. As one of the experts in our just-released Meltd
