Have you ever wondered where the idea of celebrating 50 years of marriage as a “golden anniversary” came from?

A lot of wives out there might think of it as a reward for putting up with their husbands for that long.

The funny thing is, there’s a lot of truth in that idea Basically, from what I gather from this marriage history expert, it seems to have evolved as a bribe to keep people married.

In this article focuses on the gold market through the lens of technical analysis. Technical analysis is a subjective form of analysis that requires a critical eye for price patterns. The goal is to use past price data to help forecast future price movement. While the focus is on gold, these observations may be extended to the silver market given their positive correlation.

For the past decade, Mike Pung has scoured the Oklahoma hills and rivers in search of gold.

From what he told Tulsa’s Channel 8, it hasn’t exactly proven to be a fruitful venture.

You know, I’ve been in this for 10 years now, and I have never found a nugget, ever.”

But for Pung and other members of  of the Gold Prospectors of Oklahoma City, gold hunting is a labor of love. They spend hours panning in Oklahoma rivers and sifting piles of dirt in hope of finding even the tiniest flakes of gold. After all that work, you may need a magnifying glass to examine the haul. Nevertheless, Gary Whited said the thrill of the find is hard to even explain. He said even a speck can make you feel like you made your way into Fort Knox.

In my previous article, Being a Good Financial Steward: A Lesson from the Parable of Talents, I encouraged readers to follow the example of the good servants by finding a return on their precious metals. The good servants traded their talents (literally weights in gold and silver) in order to gain more talents.

And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.” Matthew 25:15-17

While it’s not clear what activities were in involved in the trading of these talents, we are confident that the good servants were productive. (Matthew 25:20) Comparing this with the bad servant who simply dug his talent in the ground out of fear readers are given clear examples of both productive and unproductive financial stewardship.

Economic growth came in at a tepid 0.7% in the first quarter of 2017. Nevertheless, officials at the Federal Reserve continue to insist the economy is strong. They held interest rates steady in April, but insisted hikes were still on the table. In fact, the Atlanta Fed forecast Q2 growth to come in at over 4%. 

Peter Schiff called the Atlanta Fed’s prediction “crazy,” nothing that they are starting out with a much higher estimate for Q2 than they had in Q1, despite having all of this information about how weak the economy was in Q1 that they didn’t have a few months ago. 

And that’s the crux of the matter. The actual economic data doesn’t support the economic optimism, nor the Fed’s monetary policy. In this in-depth analysis of the current economic and policy climate, Dan Kruz makes a strong case against the policymakers’ optimism.

Economic bubbles are an important concept for any investor to grasp because they result in drastic price corrections of a commodity, security, bond, etc. Recent examples include the Dot-Com bubble of the 1990’s or the Housing Bubble of 2008, which kicked off the Great Recession. But what are economic bubbles and why do they form in the first place? Understanding how to spot them is the key strategy for any successful investor who wants to know when to sell an asset or short a stock.

With Trumps first 100 days in office coming tomorrow, the mainstream media is abuzz with proclamations of failure. In terms of real numbers, the first 100 days of any president represents around 7% of their overall term. Some are questioning whether its fair to judge a new president from such a small sample. Trump himself has called the 100-day standard an artificial barrier, adding it was not very meaningful in a Twitter post.

Despite its meaning or arbitrariness, 100 days is a standard nevertheless. Mainstream media will, no doubt, comb over Trumps executive orders, the healthcare fail, and administrative missteps. However, other perspectives exist to help precious metals investors learn from the past 100 days and plan for future market volatility that can affect the price of gold.

A few months ago I spoke with a woman who challenged my profession in precious metals. “Don’t you know gold can be created from lead?” she said. She then informed me that the best thing to do in the coming years was to avoid the purchase of precious metals, fiercely warning me of a coming gold collapse. “There will be a mass production of gold!” she hung up the phone before I had a chance to respond.
