Gold likely going higher

Investment Newsletter Insights

By MarketWatch



Sentiment conditions continue to support higher gold prices, says Mark Hulbert. According to his contrarian analysis, gold is building a strong foundation for a fresh assault on metal's recent all-time high above $1,900 an ounce.

Last week's blistering market action set three market letters tracked by Peter Brimelow to grousing. This week's heady gains might bring sweet relief but one usually bullish letter is now heavily in cash. It might have been a little too early to pull in those horns.

Gold likely to be higher at year's end

One month ago, Mark Hulbert reported the gold-market bullishness had dropped to its lowest level in two-and-a-half years. With gold only modestly higher since then, he takes a fresh look at the sentiment picture.

Give yourself a ‘get out of debt' card

Many people wonder why companies can get away with things that individuals can't, particularly when it comes to bankruptcy and the chance for a ‘do-over.' But, says Chuck Jaffe, individuals do have the chance to start fresh.

Dead-cat bounce can't mask stock downtrend

The November breakdown places the U.S. markets back in the technical muck.

Don't put too much stock in stocks

Recent news about leading economic indicators suggests more growth in the fourth quarter than we might actually see, so investors probably shouldn't rush into U.S. equities — yet.

Where to go when there's no place to hide

Unexpectedly weak demand for the latest German government bond auction suggests that the German economy might be far weaker than previously thought. Since that economy was presumed to be the bedrock on which the entire European Monetary Union rested, this is very bad news indeed. Can a European recession, and perhaps a global one as well, be far behind? The top performers weigh in.

In focus: Oversold rebound

The oversold conditions that we mentioned last week finally combined with some positive news items to launch a monster oversold rally this week.

Buy the sellers of raw materials

Emerging markets will use their relatively strong currencies to buy raw materials to build infrastructure. Countries that are a sellers' market for such goods (Australia, Brazil, Canada and Russia) will be even stronger.
