Market Brief: Action toward a multi-year bull market
01/25/2015 Gold continued its strong performance last week, closing another $15 up.at $1294 after reaching a high above $1300. Silver’s performance was outstanding. Friday profit-taking impacted the miners in particular. While we still look for the market to rest for a week or so, it is conceivable that significant weakness that would let buyers in at better prices will come only after a further rally, encouraging latecomers to chase and buy high. We continue to hold a core balanced portfolio of physical metals and miners.

The Fed Sets Another Trap
"In these days of froth, the persistence of extraordinary policy accommodation in a financial system flooded with liquidity poses a great danger. Indeed, that could well be the lesson of recent equity- and currency-market volatility and, of course, plummeting oil prices. With so much dry kindling, it will not take much to spark the next conflagration." --Stephen S Roach, Dec 23, 2014
The Fed’s balance sheet is a pile of tinder, but it hasn’t been lit … inflation will eventually have to rise.

Yellen on US Debt (May 7, 2014) “There is more work to do to put fiscal policy on a sustainable course. Progress has been made over the last several years, in bringing down deficits in the short term, but [with] a combination of demographics, the structure of entitlement programs, and historic trends in health-care costs, we can see that over the long-term, deficits will rise to unsustainable levels relative to the economy.”
