Gold Stocks Slip To Support On Syria Diplomacy - Mike Swanson (09/11/2013)

Gold stocks slipped Tuesday as news came out that suggested that a diplomatic solution may be on hand to avert President Obama's drive for a new war in Syria. For a year elements in the United States have been pushing him to support the "rebels" in Syria for a "regime change" operation. Men such as John McCain and Lindsey Graham have hungered for US intervention in Syria while some members of Obama's administration have also sought to get involved there.

In A Year Gold Will Be Recognized as a Safe Haven by the Public, Obama's Fading War Cry - Mike Swanson (09/09/2013)

It takes a market going up for a year after a bottom for people to get interested in it again. But if in a year from now gold goes up as much as I think it will you'll start to see interest in gold and silver investments grow - interest that could become a mania in a few years.

This Is The Time For Gold Stocks - Mike Swanson (08/14/2013)

People are scared to buy them now just like they were scared to buy Europe a year ago because the TV told them to be scared.

Hedge Funds Still Scared of Gold - Mike Swanson (08/06/2013)

Hedge fund managers are still scared of gold and gold bulls are weak. Many are bailing out already on the current move up in gold. There is widespread skepticism over whether or not this is the start of a new gold bull market off of a major bottom or just a fake trap move. As a result few can hold and most just jump in and out.

You Must See This Gold Chart - Mike Swanson (07/23/2013)

This chart takes the long position and subtracts the short position from it. Commercials are large mining companies and huge players in the market. They aren't traders. Most of them use the futures market to hedge their positions. While traders and the masses tend to be long at key market turning points the long-term commercial players tend to be right.

The Elusive Gold Reversal- Mike Swanson (05/20/2013)

This could turn out to be a key day for gold. After last month's gold crash I thought that gold and mining stocks would rally back up for a week or so and then come back down to test their lows. After that I thought they would go back up and consolidate to put themselves in a position to breakout into a new bull market. I wrote about this scenario right after the gold crash here.

Bill Fleckenstein On the Gold Crash - Mike Swanson (04/23/2013)

"What we just witnessed in the gold market, in my opinion, was a panic liquidation that has no predictive value and which occurred in the teeth of the most wildly gold-friendly fundamentals the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, this is a lesson of markets sometimes being perverse and doing whatever they want to."

Why The Gold Bear Attack Crash Really Happened - Mike Swanson (04/16/2013)

Every hedge fund in the gold trade was down and every investor who bought gold themselves since then was too. Losses lead to panic. That is why the 1550 level was so important - and why it has led to this current gold crash. Every computer program yelled sell once the 1550 level was breached and the selling built up into a crescendo - into a crash.
