Gold Is on Sale for 75% Off

This week I attended the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, the world’s biggest mining conference. And I found bargains galore… bargains that you can scoop up. To be sure, mine is a contrarian view. Gold and silver miners have been in a bear market for years now. They’re far from their highs. It’s fair to say that Wall Street hates miners right now. But have the underlying fundamentals on gold and silver changed? Nope. Demand continues to be strong, […]

Confidence Game

Have you ever stuck with a losing stock position because you were overly confident that the Street had it wrong and it was sure to come back? The painful mistake is so clear… in hindsight. This is because trading and investing psychology is the single-strongest indicator of stock market profits or losses. You can watch two investors using the same exact “proven system” or investment philosophy and find two very different results at the end of the year. Your best […]

What Mike Tyson Can Teach You About Investing

You might not think of Mike Tyson as a mentor when it comes to running your portfolio. After all, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world has never demonstrated any great money management skills. In fact, he has been a wildly controversial figure both inside and outside the ring, even biting off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear in a 1997 bout. Yet you can pick up investment wisdom in some of the most unlikely places… Let’s start with his […]

Technical Tuesday: How to Detect Stock Market Tops

As I noted last week, bull market tops are often characterized by a breakdown of the sector that had led the market higher (like tech stocks in 2000 or financial stocks in 2007). Another clue in our hunt for the top is the concentration of leadership to individual sectors. When we get near major (or even intermediate) bull market tops, we tend to see one sector (or sometimes two related sectors) breaking clearly away from the others. Take 2011, for […]

Why You Shouldn’t Trade the Russian Occupation

Talk about whiplash… News over the weekend that Russian troops had occupied Crimea caused hair-trigger traders to hit the exits hard on Monday. Fearful a hot war would develop in Ukraine, equity markets swooned worldwide. The next day, however, Putin announced he was “not going to fight the Ukranians” and the S&P 500 promptly hit a new all-time high. No doubt Monday’s traders were left feeling a bit red-faced. And that’s fitting. Not because they should have known tensions were […]
