The Birth Pains of the Debt Crisis

If I had to guess, I’d say my readers are quite a bit above average in critical thinking. After all, to even consider the validity of gold as an investment, or to question government policies and propaganda, you have to think critically. So to be honest, I am not that concerned about…

Do You Remember? Why Gold?

Gold is turning into something of a forgotten asset, and that’s fine by me. There will be a time to buy gold again, and when that time comes, there will be very few believers. That’s the way it always is before a major rally. With most things in life, you see…

Are All Assets a Bubble?

Over the weekend I read a Wall Street Journal article about how all assets – bonds, stocks, gold, commodities- were rising and how this was a) an anomaly and b) how it reflects confidence in Central Banks. I got a good laugh out of this because rising domestic asset prices…

I’m Back!

It’s been awhile since I’ve written. I have been very focused on my investment fund, but I feel compelled to write to a broader audience as we enter what I strongly believe will be a dark period in our country. I know this sounds ludicrous as we hit new highs…

Gold: Deja Vu All Over Again?

I live for these moments. When I start getting spam comments that indicate fear (for gold investors) and schadenfreude (for gold permabears), I know that some kind of important turning point is near. These sort of heuristics make my life easier. My roommates can attest that when gold drops in price, my…

Gold: The Once and Future King

One of the greatest joys of investing is going totally against the crowd and getting it right. Not only does this guarantee the biggest returns, but it shows your are thinking independently. It always surprises me that people get locked into panic mode, as is the case now with gold,…

1st Rule of Investing: Don’t Get Wiped Out

Most people who read this blog are probably concerned about gold, so let me just start off by saying that gold is fine. I am praying for a correction in the $1400-$1500 range so I can buy and plan my retirement somewhere in Asia. Gold is the ultimate hedge against…

Buy the Gold Dips?

As we approach the end of the year, the outlook for the global economy is murky, but the outlook for gold remains strong. That being said, I think gold will at least retest its all-time highs in the next couple of months. I am adding selectively to gold stocks, but…

Is the Timing Right for a Gold Rally?

The biggest problem most investors have is timing. I think a price target of $3000 is conservative, but this does not mean I am backing up the truck yet. A retest of highs is likely as far as I’m concerned, but I am still not going all-in for a 12%…
