✅ DJIA Near Highs and Gold Springs Back to Life

March 19, 2017 DJIA Near Highs and Gold Springs Back to Life Good Sunday Afternoon, This week the DJIA closed at 20914 near the highs giving support to U.S. stocks and the warrants trading thereon. Gold as well sprang back to life after the Fed announcements and closed the week at $1229. Silver            $17.41 Crude Oil      $49.31 Copper           $2.69 USD              100.37 In our opinion the US Dollar has put in place a major top on the weekly chart we show below. The negative divergence is easy to see with the USD heading up but the indicators diverting to the downside. Of course, all of this with the Trump administration basically talking down the dollar. Over time this will no doubt impact the U.S. markets and should be a positive indicator for the future price of gold and commodities, we shall see. My preference is to ‘play this game’ with the junior mining shares and/or stock warrants. However, many investors are finding great opportunities with warrants on the U.S. stocks in other sectors, bio-techs, pharmaceuticals, banking, etc. Let me assist you with finding these opportunities and increasing your gains as I am on a roll with some monster gains over the last few months, yes 1,000%, and 2,000% PLUS gains. Remember that only 25% or so of my personal portfolio is in stock warrants, the balance are common shares in the junior mining companies … Continue reading

Bank of America WS B and Gold Consolidation

March 12, 2017 Bank of America WS B and Gold Consolidation Good Sunday Morning, I frequently talk about of the resource sector in my writings and my weekly audios, however, there is another world of warrants trading in all of the other sectors. Some of my subscribers are only interested in the non-resource shares and stock warrants and there are many opportunities, from banking, pharmaceuticals, bio-techs, restaurants, etc. Today before I discuss the resource markets, let’s take a look at the amazing rise in the price of the shares of Bank of America but more specifically the rise in the price of the WS.B in just a few months. With the election of Donald Trump as President and the view or likelihood of the relaxation of banking rules and regulations, the shares shot up from a recent low of $12.05 to a high last week of $25.80, a gain of 114%. However, the real action has been in the WS.B trading on the NYSE, going from a low of $0.0626 to $1.55, a potential gain of 2,376%. The leverage was and continues to be amazing with the WS.B outperforming the shares by a leverage of 20.8 to 1. My Message? Don’t overlook the other markets where monster gains can also be made with warrants. Resource Sector: The consolidation continues as gold and silver hit recent lows are Friday morning before coming back slightly to close up on the day at $1204.50 (up $3.70), $17.02 (up .07), respectively. There is a slight chance that on a … Continue reading

President Trump: Replace The Dollar With Gold As The Global Currency To Make America Great Again

Ralph Benko , CONTRIBUTOR President Donald Trump speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, in Oxon Hill, Md. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) Inside President Trump’s otherwise “standard Trump stump speech” at CPAC was nestled what might be a most intriguing observation: Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good, it’s very important. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I’m representing. There’s a keen insight in there that could, just maybe, transform our lives, America, and the world. No “global currency?”  Was this, with the poetic observation that “there is no such thing as a global anthem…or a global flag,” just a trope? Or could it contain a political portent with potential high impact on world financial markets?  Let’s drill down. As it happens, there is a global currency. It’s called the “U.S. dollar.” Most international trade is priced in dollars. The Bretton Woods international monetary system invested the dollar, which then was defined as and (internationally) was legally convertible to gold at $35/oz, with global currency status.  France’s then-finance minister, later its president, Valéry  Giscard d’Estaing, called the “reserve currency” status of the dollar — its status, along with gold, as global currency — an “exorbitant privilege.” By this d’Estaing was alluding to the fact, as summarized at Wikipedia, that “As American economist Barry Eichengreen summarized: ‘It costs only a few cents for the … Continue reading

Investors keep flocking to gold, push metal to three-month high

February 9, 2017 Cecilia Jamasmie (Image: Shutterstock.) Gold prices climbed Wednesday for a fifth-straight session as geopolitical uncertainty ahead of European elections pushed the metal to its highest price in about three months. Holdings in the SPDR Gold Shares ETF rose 8.3 tonnes to 827 tonnes as of Tuesday, the highest since Dec. 20.Bullion was last up at $1,242.20 an ounce, after hitting $1,245.40 earlier in the day. This means that, so far this year, the precious metal has gained more than 8%. In contrast, the ICE U.S. Dollar Index has lost about 1.9% even though it traded slightly higher on Wednesday. Meanwhile, holdings in the SPDR Gold Shares ETF rose 8.3 tonnes to 827 tonnes as of Tuesday, the highest since Dec. 20, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Investors remain worried about the potential implications of a French presidential election that remains too close to call. Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen is gaining momentum by vowing to take France out of the euro zone and hold a referendum on European Union membership if she wins. At the same time, US President Donald Trump’s political agenda and his team’s comments on the undervaluation of certain currencies keep rocking markets. … Continue reading

CAN NEW PRESIDENT MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THE PEOPLE?

Where is this economic boom that Former President Obama and his administration had taken so much credit for? The Obama Administration, with the assistance of the Federal Reserve and Company, deliberately kept the U.S. economy from creating any growth at all.  The money that flowed from the Federal Reserve, over the last 8 years, had a direct pipeline that flowed only into Wall Street Investment Banks. The American people were sold this false bill of sale that “Quantitative Easing” was going to make lending money to “Main Street America” easier to access. They promised that there would be a boost in hiring which would, in turn, increase aggregate demand and thereby reflect a newly stimulated economic growth! This QE effectively down-sized the middle class into minority status.  The largest growth has occurred within the low-income category.  Despite the stock market reaching near all-time highs and real estate bubbling over once again, there are now 45 million Americans on food stamps.  This number is at an all-time high.  People are feeling poorer today than ever, and with sky rocketing real-estate prices those who do not own a home cannot afford to buy anymore! This massive disconnect is expanding exponentially. The velocity of money is the number of times that currency is turned over to purchase domestically- produced goods and services.  One can see, as in the chart below, that the velocity of money has been steadily decreasing.  There are less transactions occurring by individuals in our economy.  One can see that … Continue reading

Investors Are Pouring Into Gold

By: Luzi-Ann Javier February 2, 2017, 10:17 AM CST February 2, 2017, 2:17 PM CST The Federal Reserve has emboldened gold bulls. Prices and trading volumes surged Thursday on call options giving holders the right to buy bullion at higher prices. On Wednesday, investors poured $413 million into SPDR Gold Shares, the largest ETF backed by the metal, recouping almost half of the money that exited last month. The Fed, which kept interest rates steady this week after a two-day meeting, gave little clue on when it might next tighten monetary as officials grapple with the uncertainty created by a new presidential administration. Policy makers in December telegraphed three rate hikes for 2017. Gold prices have rebounded about 6 percent this year, helped by a weaker dollar and demand for the metal as a haven, after posting the worst quarterly loss since 2013. “There is no imminent concern of a Fed rate hike, and that gleams the green light on for the metals to move higher,” David Meger, a director of metals trading at High Ridge Futures in Chicago, said in a telephone interview. “The weakening dollar and the lack of concern of a Fed interest-rate hike, and slightly higher inflationary numbers in the market, all support the precious metals.” Gold futures for April delivery advanced 0.9 percent to settle at $1,219.40 an ounce at 1:41 p.m. on the Comex in New York, after touching $1,227.50, the highest for a most-active contract since Nov. 17. Call options giving holders the … Continue reading

How every commodity performed in 2016

Visual Capitalist | Jan. 8, 2017, 2:50 PM Iron ore and zinc were the best performing commodities on the face of the planet in 2016. Iron finished up 81%, its first calendar gain in four years. Meanwhile, zinc shot up 65.7% on the year as major zinc mines shut down, and supply stockpiles dwindled. Courtesy of: Visual Capitalist 2016 Commodity Performance It was an up and down year for commodities, but things ultimately finished in the black. The S&P Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI) climbed 10.1% on the year – it was just enough to edge out the S&P 500, which ended 2016 with a 9.5% return. WINNERS IN 2016 The biggest winners on the year were base metals and the oil and gas sector. Here’s how base metals did: Base Metal Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 2016 Iron Ore 37.0% -6.2% 6.3% 31.1% 81.0% Zinc 20.0% 13.1% -3.2% 26.1% 65.7% Nickel -3.1% 13.9% 11.9% -5.0% 17.3% Aluminum 3.8% 7.2% 1.4% 4.0% 17.3% Copper 0.1% 3.9% -0.5% 13.1% 17.1% Iron ore and zinc were the best performing commodities on the face of the planet in 2016. Iron finished up 81%, its first calendar gain in four years. Meanwhile, zinc shot up 65.7% on the year as major zinc mines shut down, and supply stockpiles dwindled. Oil and gas also posted a major comeback in 2016: Energy Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 2016 Natural gas -17.0% 53.3% -2.7% 28.0% 58.5% Oil (Brent) 0.6% 35.1% -1.2% 13.6% 52.4% Oil (WTI) -3.2% 37.3% -2.1% 11.4% … Continue reading

What Doug Casey DID NOT TELL INVESTORS In His Recent Interview.

December 3, 2016 By Dudley Pierce Baker CommonStockWarrants.com   I love to follow and listen to the legendary newsletter writers and analyst and am amazed that they tell investors some of the facts, but rarely all of the facts which investors need to know to make the best decisions. Doug Casey was recently interviewed by Peter Spina of GoldSeek.com and SilverSeek.com and the complete interview below is around 20 minutes. What caught my attention immediately was comments on two of the companies that Doug commented on favorably. These two Canadian gold companies have long-term warrants trading. Why the hell would you not bring this to the attention of investors? Good chance that he doesn’t know either. As a subscriber to my CommonStockWarrants.com you would have immediately asked the same question. If you didn’t already own the stock warrants in either of these companies you could have at least considered them and would have access to all the particulars, i.e., expiration date, exercise price, current valuation (Undervalued, Overvalued or Fair Value), etc. Many newsletter writers and analyst are good at bringing out the Macro picture for investors, BUT, if you are looking for and considering new investments you need more details and ideas. Something to think about…. Welcoming new subscribers now to our exclusive database. Dudley Pierce Baker Founder-Editor http://CommonStockWarrants.com     … Continue reading

Goldrunner: “DJIA:Gold Ratio Ready To Bust Lower As Gold Price Rises Aggressively” – Here’s Why

October 13, 2016   Gold is set in the “cycle” to rise very aggressively to start to price in the real extent of Dollar Supply increases to date, along with more that is coming. Thus, the DJIA:Gold Ratio is ready to bust lower as Gold busts up and out of the historic flag. Below is my rationale for such pricing action with supporting charts. Written by: Goldrunner Periodically through history (1930’s, 1970’s) the DJIA:Gold ratio has returned to an approximate 1:1 ratio at a steep bottom. The ratio topped in 2000, has completed its first wave down, and now has made a secondary top which we expect will lead to a long drop down toward the bottom of the long-term DJIA:Gold chart as seen below. We can see in the chart below that the ratio chart topped at the two red dotted lines in late 2015 as Gold bottomed. The ratio has now fallen below the thicker red dotted line and re-tested from the bottom. At that same re-test level, the Ratio met stiff moving average resistance. Thus, we expect the next move for the Ratio will be for price to fall away to the 1 area on the chart over the coming years- probably into 2024/ 2025. CURRENT DJIA:GOLD RATIO CHART We expect the DJIA to fall sharply in price like the 70’s, yet for much of the move down to be attributable to a very sharp rise in Gold. For instance, if Gold runs up to ~ $2,100 into 2017, … Continue reading

Weekly Bulletin: The Rally of 2016—Over or Just Getting Going?

  BULLETIN October 10, 2016 Weekly Bulletin: The Rally of 2016—Over or Just Getting Going? Dear Speculators, Last week’s 4.5% retreat in gold prices hit gold stocks hard. The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) dropped about 11.5% and the VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) about 13.5%. This share price action is normal: Resource stocks always move with high leverage to the underlying commodities. What may seem abnormal, but has been par for the course for some years, is for the paper gold market to overreact to verbal testing of the waters by the Fed. Nothing has actually changed. Still, paper traders in New York reacted to a few hints from Fed members as though they’d dropped a hornet’s nest in their midst. We’ve seen this so many times it’s no surprise, but it still makes us shake our heads. Remember: Initial rate hike target for this year: 4 Revised rate hike target for this year: 2 Actual rate hikes this year: 0 And what happened when the Fed did raise interest rates, ever so timidly, last December? Mainstream markets tanked in January. Precious Metals took off for what is still one of their best years in recent memory. So if I say I see the current correction as a buying opportunity, don’t dismiss it as me just being a perma-bull on precious metals. I’m not. I’ve been warning of the potential for near-term weakness for some time. I’ve been insisting that we take profits and go risk-free whenever we can … Continue reading
