Gold Up, Stocks Down

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Friday, the 24th of January.

Today I'm going to take another look at gold, as it appears as though we are seeing a rotation out of stocks and into this precious metal. Ten days ago, I wrote a special report on gold, which you can see here.

As we started the new year, 2014 seemed to have a distinct different vibe to it compared to 2013. Last year was obviously a great year for buying and holding onto stocks, 2014 may be cut from a different swath of cloth. Markets change and you have to be able and willing to change with them.

This is a very short video looking at spot gold and the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (PACF:GLD). I hope you learn from the video and take away some valuable knowledge that can help you in the markets.

Every success with MarketClub,

The Best Opportunity To Profit From Gold In 15 Years

By: Austin Hatley of Street Authority

After steadily returning an average of 18% a year for the past decade, gold is headed for its first annual loss since 2000. All told, gold prices have fallen over $450 an ounce since January -- a 27% decline in just under 12 months.

In part, the gold market is suffering thanks to the economic recovery. Since gold is usually seen as a "safe haven" investment, an improving economy puts downward pressure on gold prices. Other headwinds include low inflation rates... surging equity values... and an overwhelmingly bearish sentiment facing commodities altogether.

Indicator Shows Gold Could Finally Be Bottoming

By: Michael J. Carr of Street Authority

Stocks moved up the fourth week in a row and have delivered a large gain in the first 10 months of the year. For now, there is no reason to expect a reversal in the trend.

Stocks Continue Setting New Highs SPDR SP 500 (NYSE: SPY) added another 0.15% last week and is now up 25.55% for the year, including dividends.

To put this performance into perspective, we can review data for the SP 500 index going back to 1928. This year's performance would be the 22nd best year out of 86. After such a strong performance, many investors expect a decline, and the question becomes, "How bad will the decline be?" Continue reading "Indicator Shows Gold Could Finally Be Bottoming"

Gold Stock Tricks and Treats

The Gold Report: It's Halloween and we remain in the clutches of a tricky market for junior resource equities. What are your perspectives on how long it's going to take before investors see another treat-filled year like 2010?

Malcolm Gissen: The last couple of years have been frightening for investors, in both gold commodities and gold stocks. Gold prices have been rising the last few weeks, allowing some people hope, but I don't expect an appreciable change in the gold price and the appeal of gold mining companies until 2015.

Something's Got to Give in the Precious Metals Market

The Gold Report: Heiko, in late June gold had its biggest weekly drop in two years. What's your take on that?

Heiko Ihle: It was set off by far-reaching talk of a slowdown in quantitative easing. However, an awful lot of U.S. dollars are still floating around and the price of gold is pegged to the U.S. dollar. In the long run, companies can't sell gold for less than it costs to take it out of the ground. At some point something has to give.

TGR: So, what's going to give?

HI: Either the cost of mining or the price of gold. Quite frankly, the cost of mining has been reasonably sticky thus far.

TGR: Can miners profitably mine gold at $1,200/ounce ($1,200/oz) and silver sub-$20/oz? Continue reading "Something's Got to Give in the Precious Metals Market"
