Egon von Greyerz: Gold & Silver to Accelerate Higher

With gold closing above the critical $1,650 level and silver above $30, my view is that we have bottomed and we are on the way to much higher levels. We are seeing a bit of sideways action here, but it’s sideways to upward and I think that will continue. I like the pace, the fact that it’s not going up too fast, but I think we will see an acceleration to the upside in short order. Words: 924

When Should You Sell Your Gold?

The question most often asked of gold bulls is, “At what price will you take your profits?” It is a question that betrays a lack of understanding about why anyone should [want to] own gold [in the first place]. Nevertheless, the simple answer must be, “When paper money stops losing its value”. This response should alert anyone who asks this question to the idea that owning fiat cash is the speculative position, not ownership of precious metals. [Let me explain.] Words: 1184

Are U.S. Stocks Really As "Cheap" As They Appear To Be? (+2K Views)

U.S. stocks are trading at their cheapest levels since at least 1990, according to such commonly used valuations as price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios as well as dividend yield...but [we ask,] cheaper than what? Different "investments" are valued differently at different times during the artificial central-banking business cycle that we must function under. In this case, we would argue, stocks are more likely reflecting potential chaos to come than a buying opportunity. Sure, there may be rallies during this fiat bear market but they should be considered within the context of the larger trends.

World Gold Council Report: A Look Back – A Look Forward

Believe It or Not: Only 1 Fund Has Outperformed Physical Gold Since 2007! (+2K Views)

Out of the 7,500 separate mutual funds available, and with 22,000 shares classes to choose from, only 1 fund - just ONE fund - actually managed to achieve a greater percentage return than gold bullion since the alarm bells rang out at the turn of 2007!

Goldrunner Called $1,920 Gold High Exactly; Now Expects $3,000 – $3,500 by Mid-Year (+6K Views)

Short-term volatile moves in Gold, as we have seen over the past few months, do not affect our projections for the future price of Gold based on our fractal (pattern) "model" off the late 70's Gold Bull. Just as we correctly projected the $1,920 high in our April article entitled Goldrunner: Gold on track to Reach $1860 to $,920 by Mid-year (gold reached $1,917.20 in late August and $1,923.70 in early September, 2011), our current analysis indicates that Gold will enter a range between $3,000 and $3,500 by mid-year 2012.

To achieve the EW target of $4,500/ozt. on the next upward move [in gold that I laid out in my article Alf Field: Correction in Gold is OVER and on Way to $4,500+!] will require something to trigger substantial new buying of gold. What could that event be? By definition, it will be a surprise to all market participants, a “black swan” event. That doesn’t prevent us from making a guess [and] one likely area from which problems could emerge...[would be] derivatives. [Let me explain why that might well be the case.] Words: 591

Unlike Gold, Bull Market in Copper to Continue for Decades – Here’s Why (+2K Views)

Gold and silver continue to receive the lion's share of press headlines and investment writers' attention. [While] our team believes this theme will continue, there are other assets which benefit from a weak dollar, especially if a weak dollar is combined with some decent economic activity. [One such asset] is copper, a base metal that, like gold and silver, [that will] appreciate with inflation and has tremendous potential for increased demand given the theme of 2012 - economic growth. [Let me explain in some detail why we think that is the case.] Words: 1150
