It has been roughly a year and a half since J.P. Morgan first entered the ETF market with the launch of the JPMorgan Diversified Return Global Equity (JPGE | C-73). The huge bank, known largely for its footprint in the actively managed mutual fund space, has since rolled out a few more ETFs, and is now getting ready to debut its first active exchange-traded fund.

Another year, another decline in prices. That's been the story for commodities so far in 2016. But amidst carnage, one commodity is slowly creeping higher, just when everyone had left it for dead. That commodity is none other than gold. The safe-haven yellow metal is back on the rise after three-straight down years. So far in 2016, it's up a solid 13%, last trading just below the $1,200/oz mark. More ››

I wanted to sit down with Brandon Smith, Alt-Market, for a very specific reason. Brandon is one of very few people that stuck to his analysis and said the Federal Reserve would in fact raise interest rates in December 2015. Not only did he say that the interest would happen, he predicted almost the exact date. Brandon made this prediction in August 2015 based on his analysis of what the global banksters have published, have said publicly and proven time and again through their actions they do what they say when they say they are going to do it.

Physical supply and demand have little to no effect on the price of gold. The price of gold is set on the paper markets and pre-dominantly on the OTC market in London. The volume traded during one day on the London Gold Market is at least 88 % of an entire year's gold mining production. One year's trading volume in London is at least 170,195 tons whereas annual global gold mining output stands at 3,100 tons. More ››

Gold has been on a roll these past few weeks as it has rocketed from the lows of $1046 on December 3rd to a high of $1200 this past day. That is an advance of 17% and doubtless many are wondering if this is the start of a new multi-year bull market for gold (and by consequence, silver)? As things stand, gold may be about to encounter some headwinds. First, we look at the channel that gold has been descending gently down since August 2013. As you can see, gold has touched the top channel line three times in that More ››

Monday's surge did everything we'd asked of April Gold and more, raising the odds that this rally is more than the usual Whoopee Cushion effusion that has repeatedly teased bulls to the limits of their patience for the last four years. At the intraday high, the futures had demolished a daunting resistance at 1191.90, where April Gold peaked precipitously in mid-October. That leaves only a lesser peak at 1232.30 (see inset) and January 2015's ‘Matterhorn' at 1308.00 as impediments to the resumption of the long-term bull market. More ››

Gold spiked higher towards $1200 today on market troubles and a weaker dollar I might add. It seems like the currency war is going through one of its hot spells. Silver even managed to chalk up a decent gain, and is forming a little 'bowl' formation of its own on the weekly chart no less. Gold is now quite technically overbought in the short term.  Let's see if we get a retracement or some More ››
