Metals and Mining

The Beginning of the End

A lot of profits have been made in the market since last September.

Does it surprise me that the markets took a major step back on Thursday, when practically all of the gains made since late January were wiped out in a single day? Are you surprised?

The Shocking Truth

Before we get started this week, I want to share something that will shock you…

The Next Big Gold Discovery

The next big gold discovery. A catchy line considering that the world’s easy-to-mine, high grade gold is already gone or spoken for.

Because most of the high grade deposits around the world are being exhausted, investors are now looking toward finding companies with the biggest chances of new gold discoveries. In the world of resource investments, nothing has the ability to generate multi-baggers better than new discoveries. Whether its gold, silver, uranium, or oil and gas, new discoveries are what drives the market wild.

In 2010, companies making new discoveries saw the biggest climb in their share prices. That is why our goal for this year (see The Future Ahead) was to identify companies that offer above-average opportunity based on successful project advancement and development.

The Perfect Timing

It’s about time the contrarians realise that the world has changed.

Gold continues to climb, closing at over $1400/oz this past Friday. And the word on the street is that this run is far from over.

That’s why later this week we will be releasing, for the first time this year, a Special Report Edition focused on a junior gold explorer. More on this in a bit.

The Gold Super Hero Tradition

Just before December last year, gold was climbing to yet another all time high. Now one year later, gold is still climbing and many fund managers and analysts are calling for $1500 gold in the near term.

With investors hurdling toward gold as the governments prints more money, we are reminded of a story that many gold enthusiasts may already know.

Our long time Equedia Weekly subscribers will have already heard this story before. It has become so popular amongst our readers that it is now a tradition here at Equedia for us to publish this story before the last month of the year begins.

With our strong focus on the junior resource sector, in particular precious metal stocks, it’s only fitting that we revisit this incredible story one more time.

Conflicts of Interest

It’s funny how the stock market works. It seems every week we have the fight of intraday bulls against the weekend selloff bears.

While scratched and bruised, neither of the beasts are winning.

As bright as the markets may look at times, there’s still a lot of economic issues that have yet to be fixed. From foreclosure troubles to unemployment, the markets remain shaky for all of the right reasons.

But have no fear…

The First Time in History

It’s been a week that had everyone scratching their heads. We started off with a bang. Stocks climbed and commodities continued their rally from last week (see Doubling Down for the Big Bang).

The TSX hit a two-year peak, closing above 13,000 for the first time since Sept. 2008, as gold miners rallied sharply after the price of bullion powered to an all-time high of $1400. Silver also shot past $28.

But all that came to an end by Friday.

Are the Banks Against You?

Ever since we published the story “The Silver Conspiracy,” more evidence of commodities manipulation have been revealed.

Last we, we talked about the latest scandal and conspiracy of the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) judges. Since our last newsletter (see Enron Lives On?), it seems every journalist and newsletter is now uncovering the story on commodities price manipulation. And with good reason…

Enron Lives On?

Controversy. Manipulation. Conspiracy. Corruption. Enron lives on? There are many words to describe things we don’t understand and things we can’t control.

The Market Crushers: Silver Juniors

Over the past year, we have introduced three different silver juniors – each one making substantial gains this year.
Each company has single-handedly beat both the stock market and the gains made by both gold and silver. Here`s a quick review.

The Breakout

It finally happened. Through months of struggle, silver has finally managed to crack the $20/oz mark.

In past newsletters, we touched on the positive signs of why silver, along with gold, should outperform and continue to see new highs. After months of what many believed to be market manipulation (see the Silver Conspiracy), silver finally took the edge and surpassed the $20 barrier.

Although a…

Special Report Edition – Critical Milestone

For many of you, this may sound like déjà vu. That’s because United Mining Group (TSX: UMG) was featured in a previous report back in May 2010. However, at that time, they were trading on the CNSX, an exchange with much less liquidity than the senior Canadian exchanges…

But that has changed…
