Precious Metals – A Massacre in the Making (November 11, 2016)

Apparently, the market believes that President Trump is going to waltz right into the White House next year and fix everything that ails the economy…


Gold and silver are dropping like the pet rocks that the majority of folks out there perceive them to be…

Could we be headed back down to $1,200/oz gold and $17/oz silver?

Or worse?

Too early to say, but right now (and perhaps in the near future) it’s going to take a lot of courage to buy into this type of sell-off event…



Looks like DR. Copper certainly believes in President Trump’s plan of executing a massive infrastructure build out…

Got copper?

Holy smokes, I did not see any of this coming…

Precious metals and clean energy… My best ideas… on the wrong side of the short-term trade… Maybe I shoulda been buying coal instead?

Nah, no worries here folks…

I’m a firm believer in precious metals and clean energy… I think that’s the place to be right now and in the foreseeable future… Despite the markets currently telling me that I’m the biggest idiot on the face of the earth…


I will remain stubborn and hard-headed until the end… My conviction here is that strong.


Happy Hunting!

I just bought up more gold today. Unfortunately, I did not buy the bulk of it earlier this year (darn FOMO) but have been averaging down on the drops since August. Sucks to see everything in red but I’m in it till the end as well.

Hey FiFighter,

I really appreciate your work and your stance. Rick Rule would say, in mining stocks you were either a contrarian or a victim;-) Stay the course. Time is on our side.

Stay the course…

Man… talk about a shellacking! On the chart, it sure looks like the Aug. 2012 downtrend could very well be in play. On the other hand, fundamentals have never been stronger. Did you hear the news of India banning Rs 500 and 1,000 notes? Physical gold was going for as much as $USD 2,300/oz on the street over there, just a couple days ago. I’m cautiously bullish, but already bought in as much as I wanted to allocate to the sector. Double down and reduce cost basis, wait it out, or walk away right now. Tough call. GL to all.

Base metals and cyclical stocks are rising in anticipation of fiscal stimulus (I.e., helicopter money) from Trump promising to rebuild the national infrastructure. Bond yields are also rising anticipating Fed tightening and increased economic growth resulting from this deficit spending. These factors are a short to medium term negative for gold. The good news is when the markets recognize inflation really taking hold from increased deficit spending, the gold trade will be back on. In the meantime, I’ll be buying JNUG for a short-term trade in the coming days-weeks as gold is currently technically oversold.

I reckon bond yields will keep rising on the expectation of higher inflation due to Trump fiscal stimulus. Higher yields make signal the burst of the bond bubble and give us our decent into next recession (depression) early to mid 2017, especially as the realities of Trump presidency sink in upon inauguration. In that carnage I reckon there’ll then be a flight to safety to gold and silver stawcks. Industrial metals will be on the floor for another 18 to 24 months or more with bargins to be had. PMs to do well again early Jan17. Just my thoughts.
