Not Quite Ready for Liftoff

September 28, 2019

A Week Too Early

September 7, 2019

Last week’s post described how I was Increasing my Allocation to Gold.  On Thursday, gold was down $35, for it’s biggest one day drop in 3 years.  So either I’m wrong and gold is going lower, or I was early in increasing my gold allocation. I believe I was early, but not by much. Three […]

Now is the time to own gold. Gold last traded at $1,400 in early September, 2013. Here we are, exactly six years later, and gold has finally blasted through $1,400, closing on Friday at $1,529. That looks like a break out to me. Next stop: $1,800 There are, of course, three ways to play the […]

On the Road

August 24, 2019

I am on the road this weekend, so I will simply say this: read what I said last week about gold.  Gold had a great Friday.  NUGT was up 12%, proving my point about volatility. The talking heads on TV will tell you it’s because of trade tensions with China, and that may be true. […]

A Deep Dive on Gold

August 3, 2019

For some perspective, let’s start with a look at a twelve year chart of gold: Looks pretty good.  On August 1, 2007 gold traded at $645.  By September 1, 2011 it hit over $1,920.  That’s a nice triple in four years, but from there the correction began, culminating in a drop to $1,046 at the […]

Great Week for Tesla (if you were short)

July 27, 2019

As regular readers of these ramblings know, I am not a fan of Tesla.  I believe that electric cars are the future.  I don’t think we are quite there yet.  Battery technology needs to improve, and we need to find a better way to generate the electricity that will power these cars.  (Burning natural gas […]
