Doldrums and Summer lows? Pining sez No!

Monday, June 19, 2017 - 1:13am

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:

Is The Junior Mining Sector About To Implode?

Friday, April 21, 2017 - 2:43pm

The GDXJ rebalancing will mean 2.6 billion dollars leaving small, selected companied in the junior miners. In addition, this rebalancing will mean JNUG isn't the gamblers tool it once was. If people leave JNUG, it will be felt strongly in GDXJ. The thesis of this piece is that this chain of developments has the potential to devastate the junior miners in the short run, coming on top of the effects of the GDXJ rebalancing.

"The HUI is the new Spot Price. REACTION!"

Saturday, August 20, 2016 - 9:32am

We seem to have the makings of a major disconnect, and it is worth talking about: the mining indexes are raging, while the spot price "markets" are looking more and more like the ugly step-sister nobody wants to dance with. Billions of dollars are flowing into gold and silver miners, yet all the while PM "price" continues to lag, largely because it is set by the traditional flawed paper derivative dinosaurs. Regardless of how or why this is occurring (deliberate plan or free market), one thing seems evident: HUI is the new Spot Price, and Spot Price is Dead!

The Hard Way

Turd’s famous “TEOTGKE” hypothesis is that the great seventy-year Keynesian experiment subverting free markets and the law of supply and demand through easy money creation and central bank control of the economy is grinding to an ugly and inevitable end. I find it interesting that core parts of this idea, and indeed many of the central ideas that have animated the PM community for quite some time, are now leaking out into the wider consciousness in ways that are increasingly visible.
