  • In Gold We Trust - The Fed Can't Print It

    October 3, 2010, 12:00 PM

    It seems that gold will need to consolidate before going higher, but once it corrects, it's not out of question that the price will reach $1,500. We’re looking forward to several more years of the precious metals bull market, especially in silver. We compare previous breakouts in silver order to measure and estimate probable target levels for the near-term. We also examine how Phi, known as the golden number, helps us analyze the markets.


  • The Dollars Dominance: Is This the Beginning of the End?

    September 16, 2010, 12:00 PM

  • Do Huge Volumes for Gold Indicate More Upside or Is Caution Needed?

    September 16, 2010, 12:00 PM

    Gold seems relentless. It has moved above its previous high and it has done so on huge volume. But the RSI indicator points to caution. What do one do? Should we heed the old adage "When in doubt, stay out?" This week we look at two important developments in the long-term GLD SPDR chart and we compare the spikes in volume to similar spike that we saw this past May. What can we learn from that?


  • USD Index Likely to Move Lower - What's the Impact for Gold Prices?

    September 12, 2010, 12:00 PM

    Famous professor Nouriel Roubini says the dollar, the yen and Swiss franc may be better investments than gold if the world economy slips back into recession. Taking a long-term view we disagree. This week USD Index might be completing bearish head-and-shoulders formation and gold stocks failed to break above the rising resistance line, just like gold did. We analyze the Euro and USD Indices and clearly see that precious metals have been driven by euro weakness, a fact that speaks volumes about the influence of the European investors on world-wide prices of gold, silver, and other precious metals.


  • "See You in September" Might be Out of Tune This Year for Gold Prices

    September 8, 2010, 12:00 PM

  • Can Gold Continue its Ride Up or is a Correction Inevitable?

    September 4, 2010, 12:00 PM

    We see an excellent chance for great profit potential in the period that will follow an upcoming correction. Could the buying power for gold be drying up right now? Aside from these dependable indicators, the size of the current rally alone should make one cautious regarding any further gains. Timing is everything. This week we take a look at a relatively new chart to examine silver’s price action from a non-USD perspective.

  • What Does The Junior Sector Say about the Next Move in Gold?

    August 27, 2010, 12:00 PM

  • Dollar's Small Rally and Silver's Big Decline - Which of Them Is Bullish for Gold?

    August 13, 2010, 12:00 PM

    Two weeks ago, we've posted an essay in which we've analyzed i.a. the Euro Index. We've stressed that a slight move lower may be seen in the short-term, which will likely be coupled with a corresponding move higher in the USD Index. This is precisely what we have just witnessed, so without further introduction, we will let you know how low can it take the Euro Index and how big rally could we see in the USD Index. In the latter part of the essay we will provide you with our very-long-term silver chart.

  • Gold and Silver - Following Stock Indices or Moving Against Them?

    August 9, 2010, 12:00 PM

We have summarized that we were likely to see a short-term bounce to the upside. Now - with gold over $40 higher - we would like to provide you with a follow-up of that particular essay.

    In the following part of the article we will also provide you with our thoughts related to one of the questions that we've received from our Subscribers - how is gold likely to perform in a deflationary environment.

    July 31, 2010, 12:00 PM

Since this is what happened we would like to let you know where - in our opinion - gold is likely to go next.
