Gold Prices Setting Up for Profitable Trading Opportunity?



Bullish gold pricesWith the stock market scrambling to find buying support and with the May West Texas Intermediate (WTI) back up around $50.00, I’d like to take a closer look at gold prices.

Why Gold Prices Are Catching My Attention

Everyone is aware the Federal Reserve will likely take the next steps and begin to raise interest rates either in July or by September, which will help drive up the dollar. A strong dollar translates into lower gold prices, which will help to keep some pressure on the demand side for the precious metal. Yet a look at the charts shows a potential trading opportunity in the works, despite the futures chain showing the price of gold staying around $1,200 to $1,215 an ounce for much o ... Read More



Why Gold Looks Good to Me in 2014



Gold Looks Good to Me in 2014Just the other day, I was talking to a friend of mine who seemed extremely cheerful. I asked why, and he said that his investments have performed well over the past few months and he saw no reasons to worry. This is a common problem with investor sentiment; people tend to become complacent and only look to the recent past as an indication of what tomorrow will bring. This is quite dangerous. Investor sentiment is often wrong and can be used as a contrary indicator, buying when others are dumping their stocks and taking profits when others are blissfully unaware of the changing land ...

How to Profit Big from Gold Mining Stocks Left for Dead



Gold Mining StocksLeft for dead: that’s what appears to be what most investors have done to gold mining stocks. With the price of gold bullion down significantly in 2013, it appears many are simply ignoring all gold mining stocks, lumping them into one category and avoiding the group as a whole. Personally, I love buying when things are on sale. I hate paying full price on anything, no matter if it is for a stock or clothes. When it comes to gold mining stocks, the market sentiment hasn’t been this bearish in years.

Market sentiment tends to oscillate, and for the long-term ... Read More



What’s Happening in the Copper Market Should Alarm You…



Plunge in Copper Is a Big Warning SignThere is something going on right now in the copper market that should alarm you. Over the past week, the price of copper has plunged, recently hitting a four-year low. Why should this matter? Most investors and analysts are placing bets that economic growth is about to re-accelerate globally. Never before has the world been so interlinked, so we must pay attention to what is occurring internationally. Copper is an important part of the potential for economic growth, not just because it is used in building and construction, but because it is als ... Read More



Making This “Difficult” Trade Now Could Set You Well Ahead of the Crowd



investor sentimentOne of the most difficult things for an investor to do is look beyond the current environment. One of the biggest reasons that many investors underperform is because of their own human biases. This is perfectly natural, as we tend to expect more of the same in terms of what has been recent history. In this way, investor sentiment becomes far too complacent. Is there a way that you can take advantage when investor sentiment is causing the markets to be mispriced? Absolutely, but you first need to have an understanding that this is indeed occurring. A perfect example over the past couple of years has b ... Read More



How Global Debt of More Than $100 Trillion Is Threatening Your Portfolio



Global DebtThere is a recent statistic that is quite shocking: the total amount of debt globally is now over $100 trillion, a jump of 40% over the last six years. According to the Bank for International Settlements, which is run by 60 central banks, since the financial crisis, the majority of the $100 trillion in debt has been issued by governments and nonfinancial corporations. (Source: “March 2014 quarterly review,” Bank for International Settlements web site, March 9, 2014.) You would think that with such a huge amount being issued, it would drive interest rates higher amid a debt crisis. But as we all know, the exact opposite has o ... Read More



Should You Be Prepared for a Bullish Run in Gold Bullion?



Bullish Run in Gold BullionAfter 12 years, gold bullion’s glorious bull run ended with a thud in 2013, retracing 30% and locking in the biggest annual decline since 1981. Many speculate that gold bullion prices melted in 2013 as investors tried to figure out when the Federal Reserve was going to be cutting its generous $85.0-billion monthly bond purchases. Investors lean toward gold bullion and other precious metals as a hedge against both a weak U.S. dollar and inflation. A tapering of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy suggests that the U.S. economy is getting stronger. While there was no real sign of sustained ... Read More



Two More Reasons to Be Bullish on Gold



Bullish on GoldEarlier in the year, gold bullion prices were going higher, and we heard the skeptics say, “They will decline. Don’t buy the precious metal; it’s useless.” They turned out to be very wrong. Now, gold bullion prices are seeing a minute pullback. With this, we are once again hearing the same thing: ditch gold and buy something else has become the mantra. Sadly, those who say don’t buy the precious metal are too focused on the short-term fluctuations and are completely forgetting the long-term picture. I am bullish on the yellow metal. My reasons are very simple. We see demand for gold bullion increasing—it ... Read More



The Chart That Will Make You Bullish on Gold



Bullish on GoldSince the beginning of the year, gold bullion has gained a significant amount of attention. The precious metal has increased about 14% in value and has become one of the best-performing asset classes. Key stock indices, on the other hand, are down. With this rise in gold bullion prices, we see an increasing amount of pessimism. In 2013, we heard the metal was a slam-dunk sale. Now, the warnings are a little tamer, but we are told $1,200-an-ounce gold bullion is very possible. The mining companies that have increased in value will see a pullback. Before going into further detail, please look at the chart of daily gol ... Read More



Want Exposure to Gold But Not a Gold Mining Stock?



Gold Mining StockThe one thing that savers and investors have these days is choice. More and more securities come to the marketplace every day and the kinds of investments available to individuals have really improved over the last few years. One of the most useful, more popular investment vehicles nowadays consists of exchange-traded funds, otherwise known as ETFs. An ETF is a security that trades on a stock exchange, but follows a commodity, an index, or a basket of assets (e.g. an index fund). ETFs can be very useful in diversifying your portfolio as well making a bet without using derivatives. Fo ... Read More



Why You Might Want to Hoard Gold



DL_George_5We have the fiscal cliff and national debt to contend with, along with jobs, manufacturing growth, and economic renewal. Moreover, there’s a recession in the eurozone that is negatively impacting the global economy, including China, Japan, and the U.S. My view is that stock values could falter in 2013, so you need a safe haven to park your capital, which many of you know is in gold. There has been plenty of talk in these pages regarding gold and whether the precious metal is headed for $2,000 an ounce. In my view, the current global risk will support and drive gold prices higher. For you, the question is whether to buy the physical bullion or gold mining stocks. For the average investor, I favor gold stocks over ... Read More
