    I know Rick doesnt do any Canadian, unfortunate.
    Canadian pot stocks are moving pretty good.

    About a week ago I got a mining news that was saying copper was ready to move.

    Golds seems steady lately but my goldshare list is still languishing.

    I thought I was smart buying back into ACB and Weed on Friday and selling for a nice 16% gain after a day. I would have been up 40% if I had held. I bought some dips today after the another bubble burst and they have bounced back up. I normally only trade US stocks. I sold out my XOP many days ago and that has shot up to 38.80.

      I had a $62 target for oil a while back but got out too soon as I had a lot of year ends to finish for December 31st and not enough time to track things.. It will hopefully correct soon.

    cdn pot shares will go up until july 1, then they could explode up or down as thats when pot is legal.
    at least thats what I expect, but whatdoIno?

    I been saying for a long time pots been a good spot to be in while waiting for gold to do something.

    The question for me now is whats gonna do better pot or gold, after today its pot 1 gold zippo. lol

      Sales projected at $3.9 billion in CA alone this year. I wonder how much will be lost to GDP in lost productivity. AI may have another reason for support.

      Question is when does saturation occur and supply becomes greater than demand…..some will go under eventually but that’s for 2019 and beyond

        Been awhile since I did DD on potshares, but when I did it, it was years before demand could be met.
        That was a big point I made a few times, they(all of them) will sell 100% of product, at least recreational product, which is why I liked aurora.
        and 50 cent to what now? $14? is none too shabby while waiting for gold to move.

      Eventually there will be so many more companies in this area worldwide that there could be a glut of product and price wars with prices crashing like oil.

          In fact, this is the only way it will be affordable medicinally for many.

          Rick Simpson’s anti-cancer protocol calls for, I believe, 60 grams of oil in 90 days. That’s a couple thousand $, minimum, which is a cost people can easily avoid by growing a couple of plants at home.

            Juicing is even more costly. The info I have seen on it calls for juicing 50-100 fress leaves per day, or 1/2 oz (~15 g) fresh bud. This from a woman who uses it for MS.

          To be fair I find some things written in all the abraham religion record books as fantasy.

            I use 2 trading info, td and tmx money.

            td is not showing me anything, tmx is saying they are investing in seeds.

            I gotta say, any grower around now doesnt need seeds.
            td showing nothing doesnt bode well for ease of buying.

            There may be more to them than seeds, but im interested in the amount of recreational grown. To heck with medical. lol
            Medical was just so they could be prepared for recreational sales.

            At least thats how I see it.

            Could very well be more to these guys than I see, I dont know.

            I agree, recreational is huge, and likely to be the much larger market.

            But medicinal will be huge too. Especially as long people continue on the factory food diet, because it is useful for many of the chronic degenerative lifestyle-caused conditions.

            60g in 90 days of Rick Simpson’s oil? That is a massive amount, and every cancer patient is a potential customer.

    The US economy is coming back, China won’t be the premier developer of electric cars. The destiny of US manufacturing prowess is now again on the honor role, destiny will strike again for America. The electric automobile will come before the cell phone, and the face of America will once again be defined by manufacturing quality goods that the world wants to buy. DT

      China has produced an industrial base that mirrors Japan, copy but don’t produce originality. America was the first society where you can mortgage the future but keep the factories roaring, if you’ve done it once you will do it again. I believe! DT

    Gold Mining Investors On The Brink Of Nirvana

    by @Goldfinger on January 3, 2018

    Gold entered a bear market after reaching an all-time high at $1923.70 on September 6th, 2011.
    The bear market ended on December 3rd, 2015 with gold bottoming at $1045.40.
    The gold crash on April 15th, 2013 left an open gap up at $1560.50. Since that crash day which saw gold fall more than $200/ounce the yellow metal has been hammering out a broad based bottom with price largely contained within a range between $1150 on the downside and $1350 on the upside.
    The rally from the mid-December low at $1238.50 has seen gold rally nearly 7% and string together one of its longest winning streaks in history (9 straight up days, and up 13 of the last 14 trading sessions)”

    “Support at $1300 is now critical, with an even more robust layer of support down near $1280. Resistance near $1350 should prove formidable before a breakout above $1377.50 eventually leads to a sharp rally up to the $1425-$1450 area as gold trends higher on its way to filling the open gap from April 2013 at $1560.50 (red circle on left side of chart).”

      Good analysis Excelsior. Plenty of work for gold to do in the mean time but whilst things havnt gotten a whole lot better they havnt got worse either… At this stage at least.
      Over the festive season Ive purposely stopped looking at the various markets. It will be interesting to see what 2018 bas in store for us.

    Looking at the daily chart indicators, gold might not need much of a break just yet.
    Btw, 1309+/- represents fork support on the following chart…
