Nick Barisheff argues whether or not gold is bad investment.

And, Jeff Berwick writes about a return to a silver Mexican Peso.

Top Bullboards post: “When are people going to realize that with central banks printing and printing that gold will continue to stay strong. There are very few large deposits left in the world and having met the management and speaking with analyst I would be surprised if Sandspring is around a year from now. The majors will eventually have to spend their cash to replace ounces. With the land package Sandspring has I don't even think they have even scratched to surface as to what they may have. They are already at 8 million ounces and just brought on a world class geologist team. They seem to be finding a lot of copper as well which really helps the economics. Maybe an IOCG on the property??? I guess time will tell, but I would be buying shares in Sandspring. Majors are stock piling money so we will see where they go with it, but I know there isn't a lot of 10+ million ounce deposits left on the planet.” From tsxtrader on the Sandspring Resources (TSX: V.SSP, Stock Forum) board.

Word on Wall Street

"The market is in a bit of a tug-of-war," said Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott, in an interview with CNNMoney. "The weak economic data is accumulating, and investors are spooked that the economy may be losing momentum, which could crimp future corporate profits and nobody knows what the loss of the Fed's stimulus in June will mean."

Toronto & New York (The Canadian Press) - The Toronto stock market jumped more than 150 points Wednesday as signs of greater U.S. demand lifted oil prices and energy stocks while Bank of Montreal delivered a solid earnings report.

The S&P /TSX composite index jumped 156.35 points to 13,751.47 while the TSX Venture Exchange gained 21.94 points to 2,049.01.

New York markets were higher even as traders worried about a slowing of the global economy also took in some dismal American data. U.S. durable goods orders dropped 3.6 per cent in April, worse than the 2.4 per cent drop that analysts had expected.

Higher energy stocks also helped take the Dow Jones industrial average up 38.45 points to 12,394.66.

The Nasdaq composite index rose 15.22 points to 2,761.38 while the S&P 500 index was up 4.19 points to 1,320.47.
