Gold versus Gold Miners
Deceptive. You can't compare gold to a basket like 'miners,' because that's a metric with too many variables. Most are negative, so yeah, if you buy miners randomly, you'll get pissed on. Or if you tap the indexes - HUI, GDX. But, hey, I bought a little company called SLW (yeah, it's silver) in 2008 at $6.50
Sold at $42 a few years later.

I wish I had bought AG at $2.80 6 months back, cause now it's...

Lithium War Heats Up After Epic Launch Of Tesla Model 3
Oops - lithium is NOT an energy source in competition with petroleum. Who can't understand the difference between Oil - which has inherent power in it and lithium - which needs power added to store that power? Anyalyst is idiot - this is SO basic and simple. In order to put power into the lithium, we still need to get it from somewhere else - oil and coal.

Why The PM Sector Is Now A Contrarians Dream  (3)
I do not agree with this article. TPTB have pushed down metals so hard that most miners are debt laden to the point of exhaustion. Sure, a few will win in any runup, but not many. Most are poorly managed and cash-poor with few funding choices. It is just too late, absent a huge (like 70%) rally in metals - ain't gonna happen soon. A lot of these miners are going to have a chapter 11. Then their stock price goes ...

The War on Terror  (4)
Umm - Is this guy unaware that 9/11 was done by the USGOV and whoever helped them?
The War on Terror was designed to create more and more REAL terrorists to justify endless military intervention abroad and police state at home.
It was a spectacular success. You just have to be honest about the real agenda.

What’s Wrong with Modern Libertarians  (3)
I agree with most of this article. I have Libertarian leanings, but find myself a bit disgusted by the insistence on Free Market Ideology as the Saving Grace of humanity. Capitalism is not a panacea for all human ills. It is, in fact, the cause of much of our troubles.

A Byproduct of the Twist Gold Manipulation  (2)
'The indisputable message of this chart is that gold generally goes in alignment with the 30 year/2 year yield spread.'

I dispute it - that correlation didn't look that tight to me. Except for the bounces, where the tops tagged together. The rest was pretty weak. good luck with it, though.

What is Money  (10)
It's an article of faith that the 'free market' is the best system possible. It's completely unprovable. You should read 23 things about capitalism you never heard (or some title like that). Anything called a 'free market' is an illusion. It's merely a market where those who receive the favors do not perceive the rules.
How could you have a global system of exchange without some controls about flow and creat...

No - he's a capitalist ideologue hell-bent on destroying socialism. And socialism - when the government does ANYTHING for the public good - is a bad thing. But the government only does things for public good or for its own power - either one is bad in the libertarian sense. Having an army defend the borders is socialism - it draws from the...

Schiff never questions his free market capitalism dogma. Every system has problems, capitalism included. Every human construct has failings, including the 'free market.' It is not perfect.

Gold And Silver Smashed…Nobody Really Knows What Lies Ahead  (13)
No evidence?
What about the dumping of 1mn oz of gold and 10,000 contracts of silver within a few minutes?
That is evidence, even if not conclusive.
I find it aggravating when commentors bluntly state that the 'conspiracists' offer charges without evidence. They simply ignore the evidence presented.

this article ignores manipulation of price. Even if the author does not believe in price manipulation, he should address it, with his reasons for disbelief. To ignore it damages his credibility as a commentator in light of Embry, GATA, and others work.

I appreciate your optimism, but I must respectfully disagree. Shale oil and shale gas are not really panning out. (I worked in the natural gas industry on a drilling rig, btw). Shale oil has an eroi of just over 1, at best. It uses water supplies at a terrifying rate, and the ramp-up will take decades, if not longer. Some of the heavy oils in the Canadian tar sands are extractable with a slightly better eroi, bu...

sure - but my point was that Peak Oil is a reality. The slope/timing may have changed, but you simply say that extraction of known reserves is better. That says nothing about 'new discoveries' which is what I was responding to. Anyway, the right-shifting has already happened - all it did was to drag out the plateau. That's not a good scenario because it makes the decline into a three year cliff instead of a ten-...

all right - I agree about climate change. Big lie for money, control, and NWO-ness.
But your peak oil claims have little evidence. I see no evidence that there is plenty of oil left to ramp up production out there, and I have really looked. Sure, oil may be abiotic (and probably is - to wit, hydrocarbons on Titan), but that doesn't prove anything about PEAK oil. The earth's ultimate source of oil is not of d...

author is a douche-bag. Trite analysis focusing on a single ratio of the market - ignores hundreds of other factors- rampant printing, corruption, declines in mining, declines in silver stock, serious fear, power shift to East, Euro/US/World debt crisis. Bad stuff, be skeptical.

Oh - this article was an ad for a book on trading gold and gold stocks. But, it never mentions manipulation (or interventionals as deepcaster calles them). Well then, the book is WRONG.
