Gold Mining Stocks Must Be Traded

There are so many traders and investors that believe that the gold mining stocks will automatically trade along with gold, the precious metal; this is not always the case. Every stock has its own set of issues that it will face. Very often the price of gold and the gold mining stocks will trade in tandem with each other, however, there will be times when the mining stocks will lag and other times when they will lead the price of gold. Each different gold mining stock must be followed…

Weekly Report: Gold Mining Stocks, Here Is The Trade

Last week, the major stock market indexes inflated sharply higher. The highly followed and popular Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) gained 787.0 points by the close on Friday afternoon. The catalyst for the stock market rally last week was once again, the central banks around the world stating they would provide liquidity for the frozen banks. This announcement is simply more of the same news that many traders and investors recall hearing in September 2008. Perhaps this time around…

Gold Speaks To Traders

Every trader should watch gold extremely closely. Gold has signaled inflation better than any indicator in the world for the past ten years. When gold trades higher it tells traders that the stock markets are being inflated by a major institution or perhaps even a central bank. The opposite is true when gold declines as it will indicate that the stock market is deflating. Gold and the stock market are synonymous with each other. The only difference is that gold will usually lead the…

What Is Gold Telling Us Today?

There is a very simply rule that traders should follow, when gold is trading higher it is signaling an inflating stock market. The opposite is true when gold is trading lower, it is signaling a deflating stock market. Gold and the major stock indexes are synonymous at this time and will trade in the same direction. Traders and investors should know that gold often leads the stock markets and will usually signal the direction for the major stock indexes.

Gold Dips, However, It Is Still The Golden Investment

This morning, spot gold is declining lower by $21.00 to $1838 per ounce. Gold has been extremely volatile over the past month. Many traders and investors have been fleeing the precious metal due to rumors of another margin hike by the CME Group. So far, the CME Group has increased margins for gold on two separate occasions since August 10, 2011. Traders may remember, it took four separate margin hikes in silver to cause the price to decline sharply. It is important to note that gold has… Continue

Investigate The Dirty Stock Market

Ever wonder why stocks, commodities and currencies move prior to news? Many times it seems like key big boys, money managers and institutions got word ahead of the average investor. The fact is, they do. I am calling for a direct investigation into the latest gold collapse that saw the precious metal drop from over $1,900 to $1,700 per ounce. After a two day massive drop, the CME raised the margin requirements on gold.



While I gave out the short call on gold. I still think an… Continue
