Gold Martin Armstrong invokes reactions amongst investors or followers of the markets, that range across a broad spectrum. That is, there are many who believe in his views, others who loathe him and many more who have no idea who he is. It is impossible and unjust to try to condense his market views and theories into a sentence or two about cycles and charts - so I'd suggest anyone interested to go and do some more reading on their own. In a recent blog piece titled "The Battle Between Nominal & Virtual", Armstrong presents his views on where the price of gold may be going in the short term and then further out in time.

Gold Jesse Owens won four gold medals (the 100 meter, 200 meter, the 400 meter relay and the long jump) at the 1936 summer games in Berlin, Germany. With this win, he put a real dent in Hitler's propaganda war but really struggled when he returned back home to a segregated and struggling economy which continued to have high unemployment. Owens gave one of his four gold medals to Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, an African American tap dancer and movie star of the time. After his death, it passed on to his wife and then to her daughter in 2007. And now it is up for auction.

Gold The winter games are just around the corner and the southern Russian city of Sochi is all set to host the much hyped event. But a question that often comes up is whether the gold medal is actually made of gold (and the same with the composition of silver and bronze medals). As it turns out, the gold medal weighs in at a hefty 16 ounces (454 grams) but only has 6 grams of gold plating (1.3%) with the rest being composed of silver. The silver medal is pretty much the same without the gold plating. The bronze medal is composed of copper, tin and zinc. The medals highlight the Caucasus mountains which are one of the defining features of Russia.

Gold Indian government policies are giving us a first hand view of what happens when the powers that be try to force the hand of a population that doesn't really trust them. Higher taxes, duties, tariffs and regulations cannot stem the demand for gold in a country where the purchasing power of the local currency keeps declining - leading people to rather wear their wealth than put it in a bank. The demand is now being met by an burgeoning underground economy where gold is being smuggled in, is commanding very high premiums to spot and some people are looking to silver as an alternative. We've had air hostesses charged with smuggling gold from overseas and now a Jet airways cleaning crew made a glittering discovery of 24 gold bars worth $1.1 million stashed in one of the washrooms.

Gold Jim Rogers is if anything a very astute investor who called the emerging market and commodity boom a long time ago. He has been so confident of this trend to have moved (himself and his family) East to Asia. Jim has been pretty bullish on gold as well though he has often come across as a broad commodity bull. In this interview with Rachel Mills of the Birch Gold Group, Rogers talks about a possible consequence of central bank easing - a massive collapse of the financial markets. For this type of scenario, he recommends a gold based insurance policy.

Gold It is time to start a new chapter in the life of Gold-Investor.com. The original site came online in the summer of 2002 and as technology has evolved, the site was having serious problems and needed to have its backend updated. Unfortunately we could not upgrade the site and instead had to do a new install - so the content could not be transitioned over. We will start putting new content online and will work to selectively bring back some of the old articles.
