Correction Over, Gold & Gold Stocks Eyeing New Highs
1 year ago

As you correctly point out gold could have corrected to $1280. Since it didn't we again find ourselves with lots of wannabe gold holders on the sidelines. They are now set-up to chase the rally.

Bull Markets That Follow Epic Bears
1 year ago

Very good observations. Your approach and findings are consistent with what I have proposed from a different method. I have seen this as a Phase I of a new bull and in that phase stocks return to "known Values" which I have suggested are around HUI 350, where the point of recognition was in both the preceding bull and bear markets. Also like the bull of 1982 in the general stock market stocks took off and didn't correct for 17 months.

Oil: $55 - $60 Here We Come
1 year ago

I have been "all in" in the PM sector since early FEB. Regarding oil I am somewhat neutral, but on sidelines. I don't think bear market is over yet is my analysis, but not interested in playing downside since upside PMs is the place to be right now.

Wow, does Gary realize his tone of voice is extremely condescending to those on the other side of the trade?
