Bear's Lair

Bear Markets always follow Bull markets and a severe stock market correction is long overdue. Bears Lair will spot, monitor and analyze the stock market correction as it develops.

 

Many have been asking what is going to happen with gold and silver this month, and I maintain it is a tough call. The September month is usually pretty positive for the metals.

It seems more and more people are waking up to the fact that gold and silver are not only moving up but are also much safer investments currently than any other alternative.

Gold is once again the hot commodity, as the price rises to the $1000 per ounce level. This $1000 - $1033 is a technical pivot point for gold. One of two things is going to take place in the coming weeks.

Commodities took a breather last week, while stocks slowly continued their march higher.

In this week's missive I decided to take a clip from the August issue of The Morgan Report and share with readers what others have to say about the silver market.


Begin excerpt…

Last week we saw commodities sell down then put in solid bounce, which allowed us to generate new pivot lows for drawing support trend lines. This is the exact type of price action I have been waiting for.

One of the questions I am asked most frequently is, "Where can I invest in precious metals to maximize returns?" The answer is not as straightforward as one might expect.

The following is an excerpt from the March issue of The Morgan Report. This followed a lengthy discussion of how silver and gold both performed during inflationary and deflationary periods.
