Trump Wants Investors To Buy American Mining and Manufacturing

I just read Trump's inaugural speech and it can be summed up in the following sentence, "Buy American and hire American". This policy could have a great impact on some of our US natural resource holdings including our investments in US precious metals, rare earths, graphite, lithium, uranium...which have been forgotten about for nearly twenty years as large mining companies sought mines in foreign jurisdictions which had less regulatory burdens then the US. For years I expected a renaissance in this abandoned mineral sector as a country can last only so long before people realize that their jobs have been sent overseas.

Growing Silver Developer Breaks Out of Downtrend Channel With New Management Team

Dolly Varden granted options at $.65 per share to Mr. Cope. Any price below that I consider to be a bargain as you now have great management combined with one of the highest grade silver resources in Canada. The stock has been in a four month correction but made a bullish MACD crossover in late November and could be on the verge of breaking a four month downtrend resistance on this exciting news.

Medical Developer Believes Device Could Screen for Deadly Strokes and Save Lives

Usually I am focused on natural resource stocks and mining as I like the fact that the companies are backed by real assets in the ground that can be verified with NI 43-101 reports. However, there are times when some new small cap situations are presented in other sectors that are unique and exciting as the potential can't be denied. Right now in the US a person suffers a stroke every 40 seconds. It is the leading cause of disability and 3rd leading cause of death in this country with close to 800k strokes annually. Its costing our healthcare system over $70 billion in 2010 and this is expected to triple over the next decade. There must be a better way and I think I may have found a new situation that could possibly help stem this stroke crisis. Carotid arterial stenosis or plaque buildup is a leading cause of strokes. A little company which is barely a month or two old publicly has a medical device with patents that measures infrasound waves of the blood flow through the carotid artery and analyzes the blockages.

Lithium Stocks Breaking Out From 2 Year Base on New Tesla Gigafactory

Big news hit the markets this week as Tesla's (TSLA) Gigafactory was activated outside Reno, Nevada producing batteries and possible cars soon. For years batteries were dominated by Asia, but now the US is leading the world with possibly 4k new jobs being added this year on top of the close to 3k employees already employed at the Gigafactory. I expect this catalyst could have a boom on the Lithium ETF (LIT), Tesla (TSLA) and our top notch junior mining equities exploring and developing lithium, cobalt and graphite assets. Tesla needs to manufacturer a lot of batteries to produce its goal of 500k electric cars by 2018. This is an ambitious plan as the risk lies in the raw material supply.

Is the Correction in Precious Metals, Uranium, Lithium and Rare Earths Stocks Over?

It appears that New Year 2017 has brought in with it renewed interest and new buy signals in the commodity sector and the junior miners. The TSX Venture is making a parabolic move as all the shorts have dried up and a whole new group of buyers appears to be entering. The Junior Gold Miner ETF (GDXJ) is breaking a 5 month downtrend and so is the silver miners etf (SIL). Now the next technical bullish breakout is regaining the 200 DMA, which I expect to come quickly.Uranium Miners ETF (URA) are breaking out of cup and handle breakout along with the Lithium Stocks ETF (LIT) as investors look to clean energy commodities.

Prepare Your Stock Portfolio For President Trump with Strategic Metals and Minerals

The markets are pricing in inflation following the Trump US Presidential Election Win. US stocks are soaring to record highs and the Dow is on verge of breaking 20k a major psychological level. Investors should be prepared for volatility as President Trump will counteract a lot of Obama's moves over the past eight years and this could accelerate moves in many markets. Notice already US bonds are breaking down as capital is flowing to riskier assets most notably stocks and recently copper and energy. This is signaling to me inflation, rising interest rates and major policy changes which is already having dramatic effects on the average portfolio. Continue following the tensions in the South China Seas with the recent stealing of the Chinese of a US military drone. Could China have taken that drone to see what rare earths the US in using to power and guide the advanced drones? All the metals which China has control of should be watched and you should get exposure. Focus on rare earths, graphite and other strategic battery technology metals such as scandium, graphite and cobalt. Trump has put in Peter Navarro as a trade advisor with China and the Chinese are already threatening a trade showdown. Hopefully Trump will move fast to help secure our own supply chain of critical metals as that is how the Chinese can squeeze the West.

Why Trump Will Be Good For Precious Metals and Junior Miners

This strong US dollar in relation to other collapsing currencies has made it very difficult for miners and explorers over the past few years. The dollar is hitting a 15 year high making it very hard and expensive for our mining and manufacturing sector. That could change quickly under Trump as he has already committed to taking on other nations who have been devaluing their currencies to gain a competitive edge with trade.

3 Junior Miners Attracting Interest as Gold and Silver Finds Support at 200 Day Moving Average

Due to Hurricane Matthew and the Jewish New Year I was unable to post updates on the current gold market. However, it is important to note some important developments in our sector. It appears that there was distribution in the precious metals this week during light holiday trading with Hurricane Matthew affecting the Southeastern US where there are a lot of precious metal investors which exacerbated losses taking gold, silver and the junior miners to oversold levels like we have not seen since late 2015. I expect to see a basing around the 200 Day Moving Average which gold and silver have been hitting. This could be great news as that may signal a major secondary buy point for what I believe could be the next major bull market in precious metals fueled by a weak slowing economy combined with soaring government debts and negative interest rates.

Look to the Junior Gold Miners For Outsized Gains To Precious Metals

Since I first wrote about this stock in March of 2013, this junior has soared more than 400% while the Junior Gold Miners Index is still way below 2013 levels. This demonstrates the importance of sticking to the top management teams that have a track record of success and the creation of value that arises from a new discovery.

Gold and Silver Pulling Back To Support, Could Fed Meeting Next Week Boost Junior Miners?

It appears that gold broke its downtrend and 200 Day Moving Average in early 2016 forming a bullish golden crossover in February. Then in June gold broke 2 year highs and has since consolidated to the breakout point at $1300. Its quite normal after making such bullish breakouts to hold at that level before the next leg higher. This summer gold has taken a breather pulling back to uptrend support. It may still base until the Fed decision next week providing what may be looked back upon as a secondary opportunity for those who missed the Brexit breakout in June.\ Gold and silver both have rising 50 and 200 day moving averages which are bullish showing an upward trend. Notice rallies have been on increasing volume showing possible accumulation. It broke out into new 2 year highs in June following Brexit and has since consolidated returning to the breakout point. This past week it made a weekly bullish engulfing pattern which may signal a short term reversal to the breakout technical target of $23.50. The move may accelerate higher after the Fed announcement next week.
