Gold Real Money in a World of Fiat Currency / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the Masters of the System have decided to arbitrarily "move the goalposts" to suit themselves by printing money in unlimited quantities, fixing interest rates at artificially low levels, and backstopping the bond market etc, it is incumbent on us as investors to find a fixed point of reference and safe anchorage, the better to weather the financial storms that their crassly irresponsible policies are bringing upon us. That fixed point of reference is gold. As gold is real money it is aloof from the mess and mayhem that now exists in the world of fiat and which is rapidly getting worse - and here it is necessary to make a crucially important point, which is that at this time in world history you have to completely reorder your thinking with respect with gold.

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a bit of irony here in that the very same banks that taxpayers bailed out, and saved from going completely belly up, are now making you pay once again in the form of higher Oil prices, and the resultant higher gasoline prices at the pump (Fig. 1). Don`t be fooled by the rhetoric generated in the media by the Big Banks regarding the Middle East.

The Lesson from Japan for Gold and Silver Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, BIG GOLD writes: It feels a little callous writing about Japan with respect to precious metals after the country suffered such a terrible tragedy.

Best of Time For Gold and Silver, Worst of Times For U.S. Dollar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

It is the best of times for equities and precious metals and the worst of times for the U.S. dollar.  It is prudent to focus on the sectors with long secular uptrends as these patterns tend to last longer than expected and produce the greatest returns. Gold (GLD) and Silver (SLV) are in a decade long uptrend as geopolitical uncertainty and rising debt levels have caused many investors to seek the safe haven shelter of real money. In July 2010, as the European Crisis was the prominent topic of worry, gold reversed higher and made a major move on central bank plans to ease.

Junior Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the price of gold still hovering around all-time nominal highs, the miners are continuing to revel in their long season of prosperity.  And with gold’s structural fundamentals still wildly bullish, these miners should be delivering their gold at higher prices for a long time to come.
