Excerpt from Mark Leibovit’s extensive morning VR Silver Newsletter which includes detailed reports and recommendations on Stocks, Gold, Bonds, Crude Oil, US Dollar, TSE Uranium and TSE Venture – Mark turned bullish after the close March 4th/-09 before the Stock rally HERE for a trial Subscription, a great value.

From MarketWatch Article: “But governments don’t want to lose control of the printing press and don’t want a gold standard either, said’s Leibovit. That is, “unless a plan is underway to peg gold to their currency at a substantially higher price, which would create a huge asset that would act as a counterbalance to their huge national debt,” he said.”

Precious metals were mostly higher after the European Central Bank cut its benchmark interest rate to a record low of 1%, raising worries about global inflation. Gold was down 1.00 to 910.00, giving up modest gains made earlier in the session. Silver was up 0.06 to 13.79 and platinum was up 14 to 1149. Palladium gained 11 to close at 238 and hit a recovery high of 249 yesterday morning.

I remain a long term bull and, if Gold declines into the low 800s or even 700s, we will add to this position. My immediate target for Gold is 1200 and my big picture target is for 3000. With gold currently just below 900, it would be nice to see gold move above 900 and stay there, setting up an assault at the 1000 level and the recent high of 1007.2 and the old high of 1037. My view is that 1000 will become the new FLOOR for Gold just as 1000 became the new FLOOR for the Dow Industrials when it broke through to the upside back in 1982.

I continue to recommend accumulating gold bullion. We have been experiencing some weakness recently as speculators close out their “flight to safety” gold positions. If the stock market continues to rally and the economy perks up, we will see the inflation I have been warning about due to the massive printing of money and huge budget deficits, thus lifting gold. If the stock market heads back down and the economy remains in recession, the flight to safety will return and gold will rally. It appears to me that gold will be a long term winner in either situation. But in the short term, gold will just as volatile as usual.

On April 17 Gold double-bottomed (as compared to April 6) at the key 200 day moving average. Additionally, it is very possible that gold is in a descending channel with lower highs and lower lows. That 863.60 low is key support. Should it fail we would very likely see 805 and possibly 743 relatively quickly.


ML581We hold gold as a safe-haven asset, a portfolio diversifier, to protest against inflation and, most importantly, to protect against the debasement of our currency and all currencies (fiat money) will lead to their demise. This is why you own Gold. You also own Gold as the ‘tea parties’ in our country are a warning of more trouble ahead both in terms of a financial crisis but also in terms of impending social unrest.
