Gold Shares and Warrants - The Leverage Factor
It is commonly known, that gold shares over time will outperform the increase in the price of gold, so investors as a general rule, are looking to own gold shares as their investment of choice. Each investor depending on their level of risk tolerance and their individual beliefs in the strength of this bull market must factor this into their investment philosophy.

Richard Mills - Ahead of the Herd
  A Dog’s Life
Disregard disease (Ebola), rising sea levels, simmering religious tensions, the potential for wars over resources. Disregard financial calamity, malfunctioning governments and lying sleazebag politicians leading us down the garden path. Is Europe going to be Balkanized? Is it to be inflation, disinflation, deflation or stagflation? Nothing important, to me anyway, seems to matter much anymore. The herd’s got other things on its mind.

Market Report: Strong dollar undermines precious metals
Precious metals have had to endure a week of gathering dollar strength, which is at least partly the result of problems specific to the euro, yen and sterling. The result is gold has fallen a further $30 over the week, and silver by about $0.70c. The first chart is of gold and open interest on Comex. Over the last two weeks the gold price has been falling while open interest has been rising: in other words paper gold has been flooding the market. This is illustrated in the second chart, of Mana

  Report: It’s YOUR Fault: Fed Says Americans Who “Hoard Money” Are To Blame For Poor Econ
Despite arguments to the contrary from the Obama administration, mounting evidence suggests that the U.S. economy is rapidly falling back into negative growth territory. More Americans are out of the workforce than ever before, median household incomes are at levels not seen since 1967, and consumer spending is coming to a veritable standstill. The crisis is apparently so significant that a Federal Reserve governor recently said U.S. policymakers are crafting regulations that will force bank dep

Gold and silver have been pounded lower over the past month, contrary to their bullish seasonals.This selling pressure has come from the usual suspects, American futures speculators.They’ve been busy aggressively dumping gold and silver futures, particularly on the short side.But each time they pressed this bet in the past 15 months, gold soon surged higher.Shorts are bullish since they must soon be covered.Gold suffered its worst quarter in 93 years in 2013’s second quarter, a nauseating 22.8%

  Will The Real Silver Commercials Stand Up?
One of the more persistent flaws in the world's most important price discovery mechanism comes down to a simple question. How did it come to pass that banks were given access to the commercial category of traders?It's a given that the market is rigged to high heaven. And it’s completely obvious by now how it is accomplished. They only folks left in denial about it have a direct incentive for ignoring it - usually an obvious one.

  Secession Movements Gaining Momentum
Given the dramatic, unrelenting, over-the-top counter-intuitiveness of this month’s Cartel raid, I feel compelled to write.  Part of my motivation is education – at clients’ greatest moment of need; and part of it, simple mental therapy.  After all, when one is forced to deal with the monotony of the EXACT same attack patterns, day after day (note the daily, vertical declines)… …whilst “favored” assets are propped by the EXACT same PPT algorithms (such as the past three days’ “dead ringer” algo

Why have you done this? Malcolm Gissen: We believe that we are now living in a golden era of oil and gas. We believe that demand for oil and gas will continue to grow faster than supply.

  Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Like a Land War In Asia
There was the usual London-New York hit applied to the precious metals earlier this morning. Nothing new in that. There was a bit of a bounce into the close for gold, and some action in the mining stocks as well. Shown below are the Comex reports for both gold and silver for yesterday. I thought it was funny that more gold contracts were stopped than for silver, although as you know gold contracts are 100 oz. and silver are 1000 oz. because of the relative difference in prices per ounce.  Af

The Lowest Inflation in Five Years!
Lately it feels like “goldbugs” have been forced to endure the trials of a job.  Trust me, no one understands this better than myself, having taken my first job in the mining industry in April 2007, the exact month the TSX-Venture index peaked; and joining Miles Franklin in October 2011, one month after “dollar-priced gold” peaked.  I can go on and on about TPTB’s “point of no return” decision in September 2011, when they realized the only way to avoid instantaneous, systemic implosion was unpre

  Hold, Fold, or Be Bold?
Question: What’s the best way to determine if Prozac works? Answer: Look at your gold portfolio. I read about two dozen articles last Thursday about the gold market, and not one of them had anything positive to say. Technical analysts, mainstream economists, industry analysts—all were bearish for various reasons and timeframes.

Commodity Crash (But Don’t Worry, Precious Metals Are Not “Commodities”)
I have lots to get to today; so let’s start with the utter miracle of the Cartel allowing yesterday’s “key upside reversal” in gold and silver prices. Back in the day of “relatively” freely-traded PM markets, circa 2003-07, not only did mining shares rise sharply, but gold and silver would routinely start the day lower – often via Cartel suppression – yet rise sharply in the afternoon.  Since 2008, this has never been allowed to happen, barring dramatic incremental news; while conversely, it alw

Jeff Killeen: Cash and Catalysts Rule the Day
The Gold Report: Two years ago CIBC World Markets recommended taking a short position on a selection of gold stocks. What's CIBC's view on gold stocks today? Jeff Killeen: We had put out a basket of names recommending some short positions, but at that time gold was trading at about $1,600/ounce ($1,600/oz) and there was little support for the price at that level. That dynamic doesn't seem to be at play in today's environment. We are maintaining our current recommendation: Investors should be at

The Single Most Bullish Precious Metals Factor Imaginable
Since my sophomore year in college what I’ve loved most is analyzing economics, finance and corporate fundamentals.  The 1987 crash occurred when I was still a clueless high school senior, but by the time I started my first internship in 1989 – at Paine Webber, cold calling certificates of deposit yielding 6% – I was reading the Wall Street Journal daily and daydreaming of working at Goldman Sachs.  My first decade in the business was highly optimistic, but by the time Goldman actually offered m

Graceland Updates By Stewart Thomson1.The QE program created substantial hedge fund interest in gold-related ETFs.Unfortunately, QE never created the inflation the funds had anticipated.2.That’s because commercial banks held the QE money they received, “tight to the chest”, rather than loaning it to businesses and consumers.3.In a nutshell, by enlarging the money supply while GDP was falling, the Fed created deflation.4.So, if the Fed were to shrink the money supply now, or at least reduce its r
