WAIT: Don't File Those Taxes Just Yet! 

WAIT: Don't File Those Taxes Just Yet!

By

Those of you in the US know that it’s the least wonderful time of the year: tax time.

Hopefully you haven’t filed your tax return just yet. Maybe you rushed it in because you feel ever so grateful to your government for letting you keep some of your hard-earned cash. Or maybe—like most of us—you wait 'til the very last day out of principle.

Either way, chances are you’re leaving money on the table. We want to show you how to get most of it back.

Gold Stocks: This Bear sleeps at least for now

Background

2015 has started brightly with gold, silver and the miners all rallying to higher ground as evidenced by the Gold Bugs Index, the HUI, gaining 50 points or approximately 30%. This sort of behavior in any sector brings out the bulls in full cry that the bottom is in and we should all hit the acquisitions trail. Alas this rally didn’t last and the miners soon started to give back the gains almost as quickly as they were made. This pattern of falling stock prices punctuated by sudden price hikes has characterized the precious metals sector for the last three years or so. Unfortunately the bounce is rarely of the same magnitude of the preceding falls in prices and so we have witnessed the HUI fall from a high of 630 to a close today of 167, recording a drop of some 73% in the value of these stocks.

There Is No Currency War - Marc Faber

Guest(s): Marc Faber Editor & Publisher, "The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report"


With the U.S. economic recovery being doubted by weaker economic data, and more and more market watchers expecting the Federal Reserve to make a move on rates at a later date, Kitco News speaks with Marc Faber, editor of the Gloom Boom & Doom Report, to find out what he has to say about it.

 

“Given the dollar strength and that most recent economic statistics in the U.S. have been on the weak side, I don’t think the Fed has any intention whatsoever to increase rates,”

Should We Really Put Gold in an IRA?

Should We Really Put Gold in an IRA?

By Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst

“Gold is one of the dumbest things to put in your IRA,” said the slick TV commentator, with his $200 haircut, perfect white teeth, and superior attitude. “Everyone knows income-producing vehicles are best for an IRA.”

It was a prepackaged message from someone that sounded like he hadn’t given any more thought to the topic than what he’d read somewhere. His advice was misleading and incomplete, and I wondered how many viewers might weaken their portfolios by acting on his sound bite.

More Unofficial Capital Controls: PFIC Rules

More Unofficial Capital Controls: PFIC Rules

By Nick Giambruno

It ranks at the very top of potential tax nightmares, especially if you invest internationally.

This nightmare could become a reality if you happen to invest in what the IRS deems a Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC), which are taxed at exorbitant rates and have highly complex reporting rules. Most foreign mutual funds are PFICs, as are certain foreign stocks.

Doug Casey: Signs of a Resource Sector Bottom

Doug Casey: Signs of a Resource Sector Bottom

By Doug Casey

Interviewed by Louis James, Editor, International Speculator

L: Well, Doug, we’ve seen another quarter of high volatility and significant world events. What strikes you as most important at present?

Doug: Everything is still held together with chewing gum and baling wire, for which I’m grateful, considering what’s coming. It’s very clear to me that the global economy is in very much the same space as it was in 2007—in other words, on the edge of a precipice.

[…]

L: On the global economy, my question is this: If Obama and Yellen have saved the US and Merkel and Draghi are saving the EU, why are commodities selling off so dramatically? Iron, copper, oil—just about everything is selling off. How can an economy be recovering if

Gold’s Bull Market In Europe and Japan Remain Unnoticed

The sentiment towards gold remains at very low readings. It currently stands at 26 (on a scale from 0 to 100). Readings below 30 indicate extreme pessimism.

Intuitively, this seems to make sense, because precious metals prices and miners are beaten down in the last 3 years. Admittedly, this is one of the worst corrections in the last decades (since gold started trading freely), and there is almost no sign of life in gold and silver since the price crash in April and June of 2013.
