Gold - the torture continues

(Kitco commentary) - On the heels of last week’s piece “Gold – Fundamentally Fabulous, Technically Torturous“, we’ve given consideration to some infamous tortures foisted upon mankind across the centuries.

Gold's all-time high drive departs with a dive

(Kitco commentary) - Quite the inauspicious start for Gold's fresh parabolic Long trend as otherwise herein detailed a week ago.

Gold grips a bit, but silver rips!

(Kitco commentary) - This past week wherein Gold finally garnered a wee bit of grip, ’twas Sweet Sister Silver who showed how to rip! Whereas Gold settled yesterday (Friday) at 1943 for a +1.3% weekly gain, Silver settled at 24.285 for a reigning +6.8% weekly gain.

Gold’s push hits stop; Fed preps rate pop; S&P set to flop

(Kitco commentary) - Quite the trifecta in our title: Gold, the S&P and the Fed all well in play for the week ahead.

Gold garners glow; stocks go whacko

(Kitco commentary) - On the off chance you somehow missed this past Monday’s early morning tweet (@deMeadvillePro) with Gold then wallowing about in the 1920s, here ’tis:

Gold's downtrend duly dissed? stocks’ 10 crash catalysts

(Kitco commentary) - As worried as we are over the wildly overvalued stock market — our 10 crash catalysts itemized herein — let’s start with Gold as ’tis our mold. And from this week’s title we behold Gold’s downtrend for the present has instead gone on hold.

Fed doing cruise control; gold doing donuts; S&P doing wheelies!

(Kitco commentary) - The title to this week's missive pretty much puts it all in perspective. And to the extent this week's closing bit spooks you from stocks is your own cash management decision. Nonetheless, let's start with this triple-shot

Gold sees short squeeze? S&P's weak knees?

(Kitco commentary) - As you regular readers know, Gold’s weekly parabolic trend confirmed flipping from Long to Short at the close of trading back on 26 May per the August (now front month) contract price of 1963.

Gold's nigh high goes awry (aka when we're wrong, we're wrong!)

(Kitco commentary) - Since mid-March, our oft-stated target for Gold has at minimum been its still-standing All-Time High of 2089 … and beyond!
