Do Gold Mining Stock Prices Follow Cycles?

Argentus Maximus writes: Newmont is due to make a cycle low between 2015 and 2017. It might have already done so, but if it hasn't, there might be a buying opportunity during the latter part of this year, say the coming 12-18 months. Do your own due diligence!

A Turdless A2A

Pining emailed me the other day and suggested we get on the phone and chat about metals and preperation stuff for a while so that Turd can more thoroughly enjoy his vacation. Since we are both teachers, off for the summer, and with plenty of time to kill, it seemed like a good idea. Here is what happened...

Off the Deep End

In late October of 2016, I foolishly posted my reasons for voting for Trump on Facebook for all my friends & family to read. They did. And they proceeded to beat the hell out of me, or stand by and watch. No doubt most thought, “Don’t know what’s wrong with that boy.” “He’s gone off the deep end”

Guest Post: "Regarding Bank Bail-Ins", by James Gibson

Longtime Turdite James Gibson is author of the great book, "From West To East". He also just sent us this terrific new article which discusses the history of the Cypriot bank bail-in of 2012 and warns of future bail-ins to come.

Doldrums and Summer lows? Pining sez No!

With analysts at most public PM websites now turning decidedly bearish, with the summer doldrums staring us in the face, with the new rate hike raising interest rates (on paper making gold less desirable as it provides no yield), and with the gold seasonals suggesting that “sell in May and go away” was the play, there is a definite bearish tilt to the sector right now.  That’s why (among other things) we have a great risk-reward setup staring us in the face.  Pining thinks it’s a great place to go long (with stops)!  Here’s why:

Mother Lingers

Mother's proclamation that all is well and thus "normalization" is coming continues to send shockwaves around the globe today as other central banks now feel compelled to hike, too. She's playing with fire and it will be very interesting to see how this all plays out over the next few days.

JBSFC & OS

After taking some weeks away, Batchelor and Cohen returned last evening with a special guest...Oliver Stone. The subject is, of course, The New Cold War but having Stone in the studio allows an introduction to Stone's new documentary series featuring Vladimir Putin.

Wild Wednesday

First there was the shooting on Capitol Hill followed by some abysmal economic data. Now we await Mother with her FOMC Fedlines and press conference this afternoon. Please return to your seat. Fasten your seatbelt and place your tray table in its upright and locked position. Things are about to get even more bumpy.

Deja Vu All Over Again

Don't worry. Move along now. There's nothing to see here. Despite the discovery of all the emails, chatrooms and texts, you can be confident that there is no collusion nor is there any price manipulation. Instead, rest assured that the precious metals, particularly silver, operate in a free and fair pricing structure.

Mother Cometh

Though we could theorize all day about WHY Mother is about to jack the FF rate again, what would be the point? Instead, since the hike is all but a fait accompli on Wednesday, perhaps we should simply review the charts and search for clues as how the "market" may react come Thursday.
