Short Gold and Silver at your own Risk - Rather Buy the Dip

We are entering a seasonally strong period of time for gold and silver. My stance is to take a look at an even bigger picture which shows that silver may be finding investment demand at this seasonally bullish time of year. Wedding season is also a good time to own gold as is the month of September (a month I don’t like to short precious metals) which begins today.

Gold: Not Just Another Commodity, A Safe-Haven in Times of Uncertainty

Mainstream media pundits, economists, and journalists alike love to lump gold in with other commodities. They put it in the same category as oil, copper, wheat, natural gas, and other things that come out of the ground. Gold historically attracts capital flows in ways that these other commodities do not. Gold is a superior safe-haven asset to own in times of financial duress and uncertainty.

Gold And Silver Prices Will Surge On Fundamentals Not Technicals

While gold and silver analysts can be guilty of being wrong on the timing, they won’t be wrong on the FINANCIAL EVENT OF A LIFETIME. Investors waiting for turns in paper assets via technical analysis will wish they spent more time focused on owning physical precious metals. A rapid rise in the value of gold and silver seems likely – sooner than later.

What Oil Investors Can Learn From Gold

The truth of the matter is that gold is largely an irrelevant commodity compared with oil. Oil is the basis for dozens of countries’ economies around the world & for thousands of major companies’ existence. The other truth & the less pleasant one, is that there are stark parallels between what happened to gold a few years ago & what is happening to oil today.

Why You Should Be Prepared for Both Inflation and Deflation

Today’s investment climate is the most challenging one you have ever faced, because inflation and deflation are both possibilities in the near term. Most investors can prepare for one or the other, but preparing for both at the same time is far more difficult. What should you do? The answer is prepare for both, watch carefully and stay nimble.

Bizarre Love Triangle – Stocks, Gold And Oil

Using their historical relationship or long-term ranges: U.S. stocks look mildly cheap to oil and gold, but drops in those commodities would erase the difference just as easily as a further rally in stocks. Gold looks cheap relative to oil and should be $170 higher, or oil should trade closer to $71.

Why a Strong Dollar is the Mortal Enemy of Gold and Oil

The strong dollar pushed bullion prices down 6% in Sept, historically gold’s strongest month. This move is unusual also because gold has had a monthly standard deviation of ±5.5% based on the last 10 years’ worth of data. Oil’s slump is a little more complicated to explain. In a way, American shale oil has become a victim of its own success.

Can Petrodollar Survive Low Interest Rates?

After concluding that US policymakers could never again manage the relationship of Fed Funds rates to oil prices, creditor nation policymakers began reverting to the oil settlement asset that had been used for decades before the Petrodollar – physical gold. What does this mean for gold and oil prices going forward?
