Speaking on Thursday’s smash of the gold price, Gary noted that;

“About a month ago I vaguely remember something coming across my email…about a huge position in June GDX & GLD put options.Now I see why gold was held below $1400, […]

Seven reasons to be confident gold stocks will soar

From Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst, Casey Research:

For the past eighteen months, gold stocks have been pummeled.

They showed some life from mid-May to mid-June – GDX, the gold miner’s index, was up 21%, while gold rose 5.5%. That bounce was exciting, but they’ve still got a lot of lost ground to make up. Since January 1, 2011, GDX is down 28%, while gold is up 10%.

Top trader: Gold stocks have officially broken out

From Pragmatic Capitalism:

Gold mining stocks, as measured by the AMEX Gold Bugs Index (HUI), are down nearly 40% from their August 2011 high. Representative ETFs such as GDX and GDXJ as down similar amounts, if not more. Mining company stock prices look to be falling into the abyss.

Yoni Jacobs: Gold Heading to $700; Sees “Impending Collapse”

For the past decade, gold has been an incredible investment, rising from under $300 per ounce to as high as $1,900 per ounce before retreating to around $1,650 in recent trading.

For the bulls, gold’s recent drop is nothing more than a temporary setback on its inexorable march toward $2,000 and beyond. The case for gold rests primarily on factors familiar to anyone who’s even remotely familiar with the metal: easy money […]

Silver Poised To Hit New Highs This Year

After the last 12 months of craziness traders can be forgiven if they’ve become inured to moves in precious metals. To those who swore off semi-precious silver last summer it’s time to rue the day: Silver has rather quietly staged a more than 20% rally since the beginning of 2012.

According to Michael Purves, chief market strategist at BGC Financial, silver is apt to warrant more attention. “Silver is […]

All eyes will be on the Euro next week, the lead sled dog of the “Risk On” trade.
