Should you trust Gold, Silver, Platinum ETF's? (#070: Mon 12/15/2008)
Bernard Madoff’s $50 Billion Ponzi Scheme is the straw that breaks the camels back. For years people have been asking me about gold and precious metals ETF’s and for years I have been saying I don’t trust paper storage certificates or ETF’s and the best way to buy gold, precious metals and rare coins is to take delivery. The Madoff fraud is literally the biggest Ponzi-Scheme in history and shows the danger the financial services industry represents to investors ...large and small. In an environment like this let me once again let me insist...buy physical gold and precious metals ... steer clear of buy.com gold online offers and programs, avoid certificates of deposit programs and ETF's. The only exception is gold IRA programs where the gold is stored in your name and is not fungible i.e. it's absolutely your gold and segregated from the bank assets that's storing the gold. > More >

THE FIFTH AND FINAL YEAR OF THE SECOND CENTRAL BANK GOLD AGREEMENT - WHAT LIES AHEAD? (#052: Mon 10/13/2008)
This guest editorial is from Julian Philips who's history in the financial world goes back to 1971 when he joined the London Stock Exchange, qualifying as a member. He specialized from the beginning in currencies, gold and the "Dollar Premium", Britain’s Exchange Control system at the time. After the floating of the US$ and the Pound Sterling, the gold/currency world exploded into action. He wrote on gold and the US$ premium in Accountancy and The International Currency Review. Julian moved to South Africa, where he was appointed a Macro economist for the Electricity Supply Commission, guiding currency decisions on the multi-billion dollar, foreign Loan Portfolio. He then joined Chase Manhattan for a period, until moving to the U.K. Merchant Bank, Hill Samuel, in Johannesburg, specializing in gold and fund management. He then shifted his sights to Capetown, where he established the Fund Management department of the Board of Executors, which later became part of one of the four, big South African banks. Julian returned to the "gold world" over four years ago, establishing, Gold - Authentic Money. He currently contributes to Global Watch - The Gold Forecaster and the Silver Forecaster. > More >

Guest Editor Tom McClellan on Gold, Commodities and the Stock Market (#040: Mon 8/18/2008)
I've been getting quite a few inquiries with regard to the upside and or downside targets for gold in recent days. Despite the steep sell off in recent weeks, I have no doubt we'll wee $2,500 in the next couple of years. Seeing gold below $900 much less below $800 is clearly to me a buying opportunity and I believe people will be looked back on this sell off as "the one that got away from them" by a great many people when they look back at gold price chart a few years down the road. I and my team have a nice update coming together for later this week but in the meantime allow me to refer you to our guest analyst of the day Tom McClellan who writes The McClellan Market Report who on Friday gave me permission to send you a copy of his daily advisor letter that I think you'll really enjoy. I read his letter quite often and have a great deal of respect for his approach. > More >
