An Acceleration in Gold has Begun

August 9th, 2011 No comments

By Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT

In recent months we’ve been talking and writing about a potential acceleration in Gold. The chart said we were close and in all honesty Gold has actually been in a state of gradual acceleration since the 2008 low. Furthermore, we’d noted that in most secular bull markets, accelerations usually begin in the 11th or 12th year and are totally obvious by the end of the 13th year. Given the move of the past five weeks, there is no reason to think otherwise. An acceleration in the bull market has begun and will take Gold to $2000/oz and quite a bit higher in the next 18 months.

August 6th, 2011 No comments

I am often asked, what is the best way to store/invest in gold and silver? I have studied this question for years and have decided that it is best to answer this question in two parts. In the first part, which is this article, I am going to briefly cover the worst five ways to buy and store gold and silver.

Vietnam Moves to Ban Dollar Trade Too!

March 10th, 2011 No comments

Well Vietnam is at it again trying to force its citizens to use the Vietnamese dong instead of competing alternatives like gold and the US Dollar. I just wrote about this in my article ,Vietnam Eyes Ban on Unofficial Gold Bullion Trade, but there is a new twist now. They are now arresting citizens and confiscating their dollars! This is just further proof what desperate governments will do when backed into a corner. There are many people who say that the US will never confiscate gold again. Never say never. It will be interesting to see what the US does do when the US Dollar loses its world reserve currency status in the not to distant future. Read more…

Vietnam Eyes Ban on Unofficial Gold Bullion Trade

February 28th, 2011 No comments

Here is another recent example of what desperate governments attempt to do when they are caught between a rock and a hard place. Viet Nam’s currency is in a lot of trouble and has thus forced many of their citizens to turn to gold, which people tend to do in times of uncertainty unless you live in the US :) . Anyway, I would use this as a reminder to never keep all of your bullion in one place because you never know what a desperate government will try to do like this latest example or earlier examples like when gold confiscation happened in the US.

Gold Will Outperform After Stocks Peak

By Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT

At the end of December we posted a commentary titled “Three Things that could Halt Gold’s Run.” We theorized that strength in conventional markets pressures Gold. When stocks perform well, mainstream gurus and stock jocks can ignore Gold. Here is a snippet of our comment: Read more…
