Gold Stocks Have NEVER Been This Cheap

Gold stocks soared 600% from 2000 to 2004...
Before then, gold stocks had fallen 84% from 1996 to 2000.
The question is, are gold stocks cheaper today than they were back then?
The answer is YES. Let me explain...
Most investors know that gold is far from its 2011 highs. But I don't think folks understand how far gold stocks have fallen. (more)

1-year chart of Puma (NYSE: TDC)
After the stock’s summer decline, TDC has now started trading sideways over the most recent two months. While in that sideways move, the stock has formed a common pattern known as a rectangle. A minimum of (2) successful tests of the support and (2) successful tests of the resistance will give you the pattern.
TDC’s rectangle pattern has formed a resistance at $30 (red), and a $28 support (green). At some point the stock will have to break one of the two levels.
The Tale of the Tape: TDC is trading within a rectangle pattern. The possible long positions on the stock would be either on a pullback to $28 or on a breakout above $30. The ideal short opportunity would be on a break below $28.

Bye, Bye Euro

So how does it fell Mr. Euro to get smacked upside the head by your supposed caretaker?
Mario Draghi must be taking lessons from the Bank of Japan because this is one of the best verbal whoopin’s I have seen put on a currency.
Mario yanked the rug out hard; so hard, that the basement is now evident.
I do not wish to get too dramatic here but the truth is that the Europeans simply do not want the Euro above 1.140 and they did their best to take it down. Traders can take away from his comments today that they will have the ECB at their back if the Euro starts getting too goofy to the upside. that will enable to sell rather comfortably up there should the Euro revisit that level. It would take some sort of huge sea change in sentiment tied to a fundamental development for the ECB to tolerate the Euro above 1.14-1.15 based on what Mr. Draghi said today. (more)
