GDXJ Signals that MAJOR BREAKOUT and STRONG PM SECTOR ADVANCE IMMINENT… / By Clive Maund / June 16th, 2014 
Most investors or would-be investors in Precious Metals stocks are so soured by the seemingly interminable bearmarket in the sector, that has gone on for 3 years now and been made even worse by its having unfolded against the background of a rising stock market, that they won’t see the major opportunity now being presented, even when it’s as plain as the nose on your face, which it is. This is a bit sad really, because huge profits look set to be reaped by those buying the sector now.
The charts below make it crystal clear that we are on the verge of a major bullmarket advance across the PM sector. While these charts are for the Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF, GDXJ – what happens to this has major implications for the whole sector, for the simple reason that this is not going up without the entire sector going up too.

Why The Next 20 Years Will Be Completely Unlike The Last 20

We're facing a future in which the economic growth the world has enjoyed over the past century can no longer continue.
Over-indebtedness, mal-investment, cronyism, manipulation, and misguided policymaking have all certainly contributed to our current predicament. But the principal causes are much bigger. And much harder to address.
Simply put, we're entering an era when it's becoming increasingly difficult to obtain the resources we need -- at the cost we need -- to power the economic activity we need.
The trends of resource depletion, escalating mining & drilling costs, species die-offs, emptying aquifers, declining energy yields and the like are increasingly pitting the world's 7 billion people (soon to be 9 billion before 2050) against each other in competition for the remaining biomass and minerals that make industry possible.
As a result, massive changes to our way of life are in store. No matter where each of us lives.
This brand-new video shines a bright light on these trends and the risks we face as a result. But it also offers hope. If we take action now, while there's still time, there's much we can do not only to reduce our personal vulnerability to these threats, but also to step into this new future with newfound optimism:

The above video is a condensation of the 4.5-hour long full Crash Course video series. The data and analysis underlying the material represent over a decade of intensive research and study. Over that decade, its forecasts have proved increasingly validated by events like the collapse of the housing bubble in 2007, the 2008 credit crisis and the anemic 'recovery' since, oil prices persistently over $100 per barrel, the five-fold rise in gold prices, and many other symptoms of an unsustainable world economy reaching its failure point. Sadly, the risks warned of in this video are very real, and they are arriving now.
Once you've finished watching the video, please share it with those whom you think would most benefit from it. The more people we wake up to its message, the more hands we'll have supporting us today in planning for tomorrow.

Massive Central Bank Buying To Crush Gold Shorts: Andrew Maguire

from King World News
Today London metals trader Andrew Maguire told King World News that massive central bank buying is going to crush the shorts in the gold market. Maguire described unimaginably high physical demand from both central banks and sovereigns and also discussed where buy-stops will trigger a major move in gold. Below is what London metals trader Andrew Maguire had to say in Part I of a series of interviews that will be released on KWN.
Maguire: “The patient central banks and sovereign size buyers have been able to absorb as many tons of discounted physical (gold) as they were able to into the sell-downs of the June and December 2013 lows. This central bank buying activity was backed up by daily wholesaler feedback (I was receiving), and flies under the radar for everyone except the well-connected bullion banks who are close to the physical market….

Interest Rates Are Setting Up for a Surprise Move

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announcement didn't surprise anyone Wednesday.
At the end of its two-day meeting, the Federal Reserve said the same thing it has been saying all year: The economy is improving, but not too fast. Inflation is under control. The Fed will continue to taper its bond-purchasing program (a form of quantitative easing meant to keep interest rates low). But it will also keep its target for interest rates low for the foreseeable future.
But interest rates may give us one anyway...
Take a look at this chart of the 30-year Treasury bond yield...
Interest rates have been falling all year. The 30-year Treasury yield kicked off 2014 at 3.95%. It dropped to as low as 3.3% three weeks ago.
With the FOMC tapering its bond-purchasing program, most analysts expected interest rates would rise. Instead, we got the opposite.
The fall in yields wasn't a straight shot lower. It was a stair-step decline of lower lows and lower highs. Today, interest rates are all the way back down to where they were last June – before the Fed even talked about tapering.
Today, it seems most analysts are expecting rates to continue even lower or at least remain at their current depressed levels. They argue the tapering program is going smoothly. Growth in the economy is slow and steady. And the Fed has everything under control.
Rates started moving higher three weeks ago. This time, the 30-year Treasury yield did not form a lower high. It rallied above the blue down-trending resistance line and gave the first signal that interest rates may be ready to start trending higher.
Rates have trended lower over the past week, and the yield is now retesting its former resistance line as support. If rates hold up here and start to bounce, we'll have the first set of higher highs and higher lows. That will likely indicate the start of a new uptrend for interest rates.
In short, despite what analysts say, interest rates look poised to rally.
