If oil prices continue to tumble, millions of jobs will be lost.
12/16/14 12:06AM
Gold stocks finish down, but silver stocks finish flat. No change in GLD, but another 1.34 million ounces of silver were withdrawn from SLV. More silver eagles sold at the U.S. Mint. No in/out gold activity worth mentioning at the COMEX-approved depositories on Thursday, but another decent amount of silver was shipped out.
12/13/14 5:03AM
Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, on 12/16/14, Strategic Global Income Fund Incorporated will trade ex-dividend, for its monthly dividend of $0.0422, payable on 12/31/14. As a percentage of SGL's recent stock price of $8.47, this dividend works out to approximately 0.50%.
12/12/14 10:12AM
Another down day for the precious metal equities. Another deposit in GLD---and no change in SLV, but 7.8 million ounces have been withdrawn since December 1. More silver eagle sales at the U.S. Mint.

12/11/14 12:53PM
A not surprising down day for the precious metal equities. Another decent deposit in GLD, but a monster withdrawal from SLV. No sales report from the U.S. Mint. Little in/out movement in gold at the COMEX-approved depositories on Tuesday, but big in/out movement in silver once again.
12/11/14 1:16AM
Lower gold prices pushed gold stocks lower, giving investors the opportunity to pan for shares that remain too cheap to ignore.
12/10/14 10:53AM
Gold stocks close up a bit, silver equities unchanged. Another withdrawal from GLD---and no changes in SLV. More silver eagle sales at the U.S. Mint. Another huge in/out day in both gold and silver at the COMEX-approved depositories on Friday.
