Is the summer sun set to shine on silver and gold?

For those investors lamenting gold stocks for their being stuck in the mud for several months, it should come as a relief that we are now moving into the most bullish seasonal time of the year for gold. This 40-year seasonal gold chart shows that gold often sees final weakness just before August begins and then begins a torrid run of 8 to 10 weeks into October.

Sound Bites: Central bank rate hike parade puts FANGs and pot stocks at risk

In my latest interview with Jim Goddard on Howestreet.com, we talked about how insiders were on top of Canada's growth rebound six months before the Bank of Canada. Looking ahead, there are big implications for a wide range of assets if the Bank of Canada joins the global central bank tightening parade:

INK Canadian Insider Index rises 2.1%, regains 200-day moving average

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the heavily oversold Index got a bounce as we had expected, rising 24.63 points or 2.1%, nearly erasing the 2.5% loss the week before.

Cobalt's new highs and M&A: Do they point to an energy metals opportunity?

A brief uranium note before we start this blog: a couple of weeks ago, I pondered whether uranium was oversold enough for a big rally. Since then, we've seen some positive signs. First, Uranium Participation (U) the tracking stock for the price of uranium climbed to a 3-week high. And Cameco (CCO) the world's largest uranium producer looks to be carving a bottom and has held its ground in the $12 area for about 2 weeks. As well, Nexgen (NXE) shares have made an impressive U-turn in the past few days. But we don't have an all-clear signal just yet. That's because the uranium sector needs Cameco to take the sector lead (and cross above its 200-day average) ahead of any uranium sector rally, so it's a stock worth watching closely. Finally, junior producer Uranium Energy Corp (UEC*US) which I wrote about in that blog, received confirmation this week that they will be added to the Russell 3000 Index later this month (as well as either the Russell 2000 or Russell 1000).

Canadian Insider Index tumbles 2.5%, falls below 200-day moving average

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. What a difference a week makes. Not surprisingly, the Index ended its period of low volatility and its tight trading range once the Federal Reserve hiked rates 0.25% last week. The INK CIN which had displayed signs of building bullish momentum in weeks prior, stumbled hard last week and, on its way down, sliced easily through its 200-day moving average support at 1161.80. The Index came to rest at 1149.79, near the lows of the week, for a loss of 30 points or 2.5%.
