The Potential Gold-Buying Opportunity of the Decade

Sean Brodrick

“Surely,” some say when it comes to precious-metals prices, especially gold, “we must be at the bottom.”

After all, as we talked about earlier this week, gold’s been in a “terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad slump.”

We’ll only know the bottom when we see it in the rearview mirror. But there IS reason for optimism. Six big reasons, actually.

Let’s put it this way: Conditions like these are setting us up for a potential windfall, the likes of which we haven’t seen in 30 years!

And it may seem counterintuitive, but there’s even more reason to be optimistic about gold miners than gold itself! I’ll explain in just a moment.

First, let’s look at what Central Banks are doing  …


How to collect up to $40

for every $1 move in gold

We’ve discovered a simple strategy that beat the S&P by over 19-to-1 and handed investors up to $40 for every $1 move in gold (without using options or futures).

Now, in a special presentation, we reveal Sean Brodrick’s M.M.T. Method to potentially make 324%, 455%, even 937% in profits over the next few months. Find out how …

Reason for Optimism #1:

Central Banks Are Buying Gold

You can see that central bank gold reserves added over 15 million troy ounces to their reserves last year. Net central bank purchases of gold jumped by 16% to a 48-year high of 532 tons in 2012, according to the World Gold Council.

And that buying has continued this year, with the world’s central banks adding another 1.9 million troy ounces in just the first two months of this year.

Central banks have a front-row seat at the primary reason to own gold. That is, the central banks are cranking up the printing presses for paper money.

The banks want gold to counterweight all the paper they’re shoveling out the door. But why isn’t all that new paper money boosting inflation?

The reason is simple. Inflation is a function of demand. And the world is still recovering from the financial crisis/recession it entered five years ago. Heck, in Europe’s case, austerity is making the recession worse.

Still, pent-up demand is coiling up. Europe aside, the global economy is improving. These are conditions that are ripe for inflation to reignite. That’s probably what the central banks are getting ready for.

Reason for Optimism #2:

The Cost of Mining Is Rising

World cash costs for gold miners rose 12% to $738 an ounce in 2012, compared with $643 in 2011. Total production costs, including depreciated capital expenditures, increased to $1,211 an ounce from $809, according to the World Gold Council.

This rise in mining costs is a big reason why gold mining STOCKS are under pressure. But longer term, it’s bullish. That’s because a higher cost of production has two effects.

FIRST, it puts a floor under the price of gold. It’s hard for gold to fall under that total cost of production because marginal miners shut down at those levels.

Look, we saw gold production go up for the last four years in a row, right? Do you expect that to continue if gold falls close to — or below — miners’ cost of production?

SEDOND, the longer that gold stays near the total cost of production, the more that marginal projects are delayed or not started. That decreases supply in the longer-term, putting upward pressure on gold prices and re-inflating profit margins for the miners that were able to stay operational.

In other words, low gold prices bring bear market prices in otherwise good miners. Since low gold prices are self-correcting, we should use those opportunities to load up on cheap miners.


The 3 Iron-Clad Reasons Gold Will Soar in 2013

Gold is unpopular now, but no one can deny it’s been one of the best-performing assets over the last decade. And Sean Brodrick has reason to believe this trend will not only continue, but ACCELERATE!

He’s laid out all the evidence on exactly why gold is about to soar in his brand new presentation, plus how to use his M.M.T. Method to gain futures-type gains on gold’s next bull run with strictly limited risk.

Don’t take our word for it – review the evidence and judge for yourself.

Reason for Optimism #3:

Gold Miners Are Cheap

Do you want to buy things when they’re expensive or when they’re on sale?

If your answer is “on sale,” then you’ll be pleased to know that gold miners are at their lowest level compared to gold since the 2008 financial crisis.

(Updated chart)

This is a chart of the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) divided by the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD).

The lower this ratio, the cheaper gold miners are compared to gold. They’ve NEVER been this cheap before.

Remember when the price of gold miners plunged in the 2008 financial crisis? And a lot of people rued the day they didn’t have the guts to buy those stocks at fire-sale prices?

Well, back up the truck and load up, buddy — the fire alarm is ringing right now!

Reason for Optimism #4:

Broad Bearish Sentiment is Itself a Bullish Indicator

The fact that holdings in gold Exchange-Traded Products (like the GLD) have dropped to the lowest level since August shows that investors have turned away from gold.

The bigger the fund, the worse the sentiment. Holdings in GLD itself are at the lowest level since July 2011.

Broad investor sentiment is usually called the “dumb money” because the mass herd of investors usually does the wrong thing at the wrong time.

It’s not a reflection of intelligence; it’s simple supply and demand, and applies at both tops and bottoms.

On the bottoms, if everybody is bearish, who’s left to sell?

Reason for Optimism #5:

Insiders are Buying

Enough about the “dumb money,” let’s talk about the “smart money” … and how you can follow the right group!

As of March 25, data from INK Research showed that there were seven precious metals stocks on the TSX in Canada that were experiencing insider buying for each one with insider selling.

According to the report published in Canada’s Globe and Mail, this ratio of insider buyers to sellers has nearly DOUBLED since mid-January.

Canada is home to many great mining companies; more so than in the U.S. Insiders are called the smart money because they know their companies best.

Right now, many mining executives think their stocks are dirt-cheap. There are many reasons for insiders to sell a stock, but only one to buy — they think it’s going up.

Reason for Optimism #6:

All This and Silver, Too

Silver has been punished even harder than gold. Wall Street hates it … hates it! But Mom-and-Pop investors love it.

The U.S. Mint recently reported that sales of U.S. Silver Eagle bullion coins topped 15 million coins by April 1. This is the first time —  ever —  that sales of Silver Eagles have hit the milestone so early in the year.

You wouldn’t know it from looking at a chart of silver, which is down near the lows it hit last year. Let’s look at how that chart shapes up  …

(Updated chart)

You can see the similarities between May-August 2012 and February-April 2013.

I don’t like to put too much into the phrase “history doesn’t repeat but it rhymes.” But IF it does find support at last year’s lows, and IF this does follow the pattern, we might see approximately three or four more weeks of consolidation, then a breakout.

Bottom line: Gold could go either way right now. But there are plenty of forces lining up that could send it higher. If and when that happens, gold miners are dirt-cheap — at historic lows compared to the yellow metal — and silver is a screaming buy.

There are ways you can leverage gold’s next big move up. I’m exploring some stocks that are on the launch pad for my Junior Resource Millionaire subscribers. If you’re doing it on your own, do your own due diligence.

All the best,


P.S. The major factors affecting gold prices are aligning perfectly to set up gold for a huge rally. You can significantly magnify your potential gold gains — more quickly than just by holding bullion itself — with a select investment in this powerful sector.

Your thoughts on “The Potential Gold-Buying Opportunity of the Decade”

  1. It is an interesting discussion for sure. There was an article I read the other day about how leaders of countries visited the FED just to be sure the gold was even there…and it sounds to be like the reserve banks are buying up all the gold for reasons beyond what has been discussed. Either way though, for those who bough gold bullion and coin early are safe…seems harder to get gold these days. But what do you think about buying stock in some of the mining companies?

  2. I too would like to know why Larry E. is so often contradicted by his “colleagues”. It really drives a knife into the credibility of the Weiss team. it appears they are just a bunch of writers loosely joined by a money making fee based website. That’s why every article has an ad within an ad to buy something else from them and why every video drags on for 20 mintues and then wants $1000 for the secrets.

    It truly saddens me.

  3. Gold is in so much trouble dude. It has now disengaged and decoupled from S&P when they were pretty much in tandem for the last year. Goldman Sachs also put out a downgrading for gold today. Soros is bad mouthing it. Deflation is all over the place. Fund managers are starting to liquidate their gold holdings of past few years to buy stocks instead.

    In short, there’s a day,month,year of reckoning approaching for gold, and it ain’t gonna be pretty.

    $900 is not impossible when the dust settles. And once that happens, they have broken the back of gold for another 30 years. This may be the Swan Song now for gold and silver. Pack it up.

  4. Good article,except the part about no inflation.I think you are another person that doesn’t pay attention to what’s happening in the real world.Do you think politicians always tell the truth,to get elected?Do you think they get 100% honest as soon as elected?Don’t you think that govt officials would lie to the public,if they thought it was the best thing to do?Do you think housing,going up at double digit %,might be a result of the Fed’s counterfeiting of fiat currency and be inflationary?Do you think that massive downsizing of product sizes,seen everywhere in supermarkets,selling for the same or higher prices,is inflationary?If govt were to honestly measure inflation and release that information,it would cause a dumping of fiat Dollars,forcing the Fed to raise interest rates,causing a major economic decline.That’s the reason they changed the method of calculating inflation,twice,since 1980,to allow the Fed to devalue the currency,with,supposedly,no effect on inflation.Real inflation is much higher than you think.

  5. The sad reality is that the central banks are buying gold reserves for themselves with the citizens’ own money which they’ll never see returned to them. We never learn from history.

  6. Sean, why the conflict in what you say, “back up the truck”, and what Larry continues to transmit, “Not yet, I’ll tell you when”?
