  • If my analysis is correct, what does this mean for silver from here? It will prove to be wildly bullish for the price; maybe not immediately, but on a long term basis. It sets the stage for the really big move in silver. This overt government interference in the silver market will boomerang at some point, just as every attempt at artificial price setting has failed. Just let the word start to spread about Working Group involvement in causing the price of silver to fall and the natural reaction by the world’s investors will be to take advantage of the bargain created.

  • Any time any leader of a country says he wants gun control what he really means is he wants control of the people. When they have no defense there is no liberty. That is how countries are taken over from within. 99.9% of the U.S. population that own guns of any type are honest law-abiding citizens. In many situations a gun may be a life saver. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people with any weapon that may be available.

  • When debtors are not to be trusted, there is a big difference between holding an IOU and cash in hand. That is the value of owning gold. When even “cash” is debt, holding a real asset is immensely superior as a means of protecting your wealth. It is just plain common sense. That this particular asset was officially money a few decades ago is just icing on the cake.

  • If you doubt that national gold reserves, far from being quaint antiques, are assets even more strategic than nuclear weapons, and if you doubt that the gold market, far from being just another commodity market like soybeans, is actually the primary battlefield of a world war, the currency war, consider the questions recently put to the Bank of Russia by our friend the German freelance journalist Lars Schall, and the Bank of Russia's refusal to answer this week.

  • But as it says on the bottom of every prospectus, past performance is no guarantee of future results. And in these days of cockeyed cooked books, past performance is barely a guarantee of past results! So you need to decide not only what to buy, but you have to be darn sure you know when to sell it when future results of an investment don't match your expectations.

  • As a Contrarian I think how many people are left that will pay this high price? Using other indicators the professional trader will want to sell and get short. I have seen it happen many times. The fools are trapped at the top and rush for the exit. That is why bear markets go down about three times faster that bull markets go up.

  • Sepatutnya agen merupakan sambungan/extension kepada fund manager. Kita sedia maklum yang fund manager tu memang orang yang cekap dan serba tahu berkenaan keadaan pasaran dan ekonomi. Disebabkan agen adalah extension (sepatutnya!) kepada fund manager, patutnya agen turut "in sync" atau selari dengan pengetahuan fund manager. Tak perlu sampai tahap apa yang fund manager tahu tapi setakat pengetahuan am tentang pasaran dan ekonomi pun dah memadai.
