Thoughts on Markets

Ron Paul Speaks to Fox News - Gold & Silver down again - Mkt Up - DROOY profit up - Are you bold as a lion, from the peace that passes all understanding?

Today, there are some very interesting articles. I want you to scan each of them. The miners are becoming more attractive as the prices seem to be depressed either naturally or by capping. Notice the up date on DROOY.

There is an article on the long term aspect of investing in the precious metals. John Embry also discusses this an suggests some form of gold backing of currencies is in the realm of possibility which would push the price of gold beyond most dreams. 

The long term view, even to succeeding generations, is a Christian perspective. "The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.(Pro 28:1). Christians will have peace and a long term perspective, because they have faith and full trust in the Sovereign King Jesus, who is moving all things for their eventual good. They can be bold as lion, while the fearful unbelievers fret and worry about each and every down term in markets or what they see as life's problems. 

On the other hand, Christians rest in their King and are at peace knowing that all is under His control. Therefore, all is working for the good of the Christian. What peace and security Jesus Christ gives to His people. I pray that each of you is working for the glory of God and the furtherance of His kingdom here on earth and will join the family of God for eternity in Heaven.

Gold: Is a deep correction due?
If judged by the criteria of six years ago, Julian Phillips argues, then one could argue that it should be time to sell but, change has come to the gold market and things are not what they were.

"What we have seen is a failure to follow prices up, but to wait until they pull back and for physical gold to be on offer. The new investor wants physical gold itself and is not so concerned with price. If they are right, sooner or later the price will rise to well above what they have paid. The lifespan of their investment is generations long, not days, weeks, or years long." I have included this extra paragraph to whet your appetite to read the article. It is incisive and well worth more than casual reading. HERE
