The Skinny on Gold And Silver

One of the best indicators of inflation and deflation is the action in gold and silver. When gold and silver rally it is telling us that inflation is taking hold, the opposite is true when gold and silver decline. The precious metals will usually trade inverse to the U.S. Dollar Index. This morning, the U.S. Dollar Index plunged after the opening bell rang at the New York Stock Exchange. This type of action in the dollar happens very often. A falling U.S. Dollar is always beneficial to…

The Dollar Dips Again After The Opening Bell

Nearly every trading session when the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX-M2) are stronger before the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) they will sell off after the open. Yesterday, and today are perfect examples of this phenomenon. Obviously, we should all know by now that a weaker dollar will ultimately help to inflate the stock markets higher. The extremely light trading volume is usually bullish for the stock markets as there are simply no sellers in the marketplace.…

Gold Rush

This morning, the precious metals are trading sharply higher. The catalyst for the advance in gold, and silver is the weaker U.S. Dollar Index, and the pledge by central banks to keep easy money available. Last night, the People Bank of China (Chinese central bank) cut reserve requirements for lenders. This is just another example of easy credit. All of these similar actions by the central banks around the world are inflationary and that is exactly what gold and most other precious…

Don't Believe The Hype

Nearly everyday since December the media reports how good things are getting in the economy. This report was better than expected, that report is better than expected and everyone is working again. While the economy might be healing in some way investors must ask themselves why the Federal Reserve is continuing to promote low rates until late 2014. The central bank is clearly dangling the carrot in front of the institutions to buy equities and inflate this market higher. Gold is the…

Can The Market Inflate Without Gold?

At this time, gold and the major stock market indexes are synonymous. When gold rallies higher the major stock market indexes seem to rally higher as well. Gold is signaling to investors that inflation is being created by the central banks. As we all know by now, when there is inflation the major stock market indexes will react and trade higher. Just look at yesterday's market action, gold traded higher by more than $25.00 per ounce and the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished higher…

The Gold Barometer

Every trader in the world follows gold and they should. When gold rallies, or bounces higher it will usually signal that inflation is being pumped into the stock market. The opposite is true when gold declines and sells off, it will signal that the stock market indexes are deflating and will trade lower. Gold is the ultimate barometer of the amount of stimulus that the central banks are creating and putting into the market.

Traders can easily see the move in…
