Yep, so when is the time to load up 100%? A nice big drop would be handy to confirm things. John Person seems to agree.

Euro strength propels gold prices
Industrial demand lifts copper futures to a six-year high

By Myra P. Saefong, CBS.MarketWatch.com
Last Update: 4:40 PM ET Dec. 2, 2003







SAN FRANCISCO (CBS.MW) -- The gold juggernaut of 2003 forged ahead Tuesday, with future prices closing near an eight-year record, as strength in the euro helped stoked investment demand for the precious metal.

February gold climbed 80 cents to close at $404.60 an ounce, the metal's highest closing price since February 1996. Other metals futures closed mainly higher, with copper ending the day at a six-year high.

In the stock market, gold industry indexes again shined at their highest levels in at least six years.

The euro "quickly raced to a lifetime high" of $1.209 after buy stops were triggered around $1.203, said James Moore, an analyst at TheBullionDesk.com in London. See Currencies Report.

The sharp climb in the euro, which boosts dollar-denominated gold's investment demand and value overseas, took February gold to a high of $407 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

John Person, head financial analyst at Infinity Brokerage Services urged caution among traders at this high price level.

"The gold market may be a great long-term investment, but in the near term, it is due for a correction," he said.

"I would still be waiting to be a buyer ... but I do not see value in being a buyer up at this level right now," he added.

Copper futures at six-year high

Also on the Nymex, copper prices climbed for the third straight session, touching level not seen since 1997, as another batch of economic reports signaled an improving climate.

March copper tacked on 1.3 cents to close at 97.4 cents a pound. It hasn't closed at this level since October of 1997.

Copper supplies were down 625 short tons at 288,632 short tons as of late Monday, according to Nymex.

Gold and silver inventories were unchanged from the previous session, at 3.06 million and 124.5 million troy ounces, respectively, Nymex said.

Silver, platinum, and palladium futures prices also gained ground.

March silver climbed by 5 cents to close at $5.52 an ounce. It already climbed near a four-year intraday high Monday at $5.55.

January platinum climbed by $5.80 to close at $779.80 an ounce. The March contract for palladium closed at $194.60 an ounce, up $3.60.

Anglo Platinum, the world's biggest platinum miner, plans to provide the results of a review of its expansion program for its South African platinum operations to shareholders Thursday, according to Reade.

Metals stocks log five-session climb

In the equities arena, metals mining stocks followed commodities higher, to mark a five-session winning streak.

Tracking the metals sector as a whole Tuesday, the Philadelphia Gold and Silver Index (XAU: news, chart, profile) closed at 112.29, up 0.1 percent, and the CBOE Gold Index ($GOX: news, chart, profile) rose 0.1 percent to close at 94.15.

The Amex Gold Bugs Index (HUI: news, chart, profile) moved up by 0.5 percent to end the session at 256.84.

All three indexes continued to trade at their highest level in at least six years.

Hecla Mining (HL: news, chart, profile) tacked on 34 cents, or 4.2 percent, to close at $8.41 and Apex Silver Mines (SIL: news, chart, profile) closed at $18.34, up 41 cents, or 2.3 percent.

A new series of gold bullion securities will be listed for trading on the London Stock Exchange starting Dec. 9 under the ticker symbol "GBS," according to Gold Bullion Securities.

A gold bullion security comprises a secured note of nominal value issued by GBS, which carries with it an entitlement to gold bullion held in trust, according to John Reade, an analyst at UB

A good question, and forgive me if I have taken some time to answer -g-. As a longer term B&H CDE bull, it looks to me as if this years buyers and sellers both look half right at the moment with the stock at about $4.

here's a little ditty on the continuing battle over
who gets who or what...

(REUTERS) Coeur "puzzled" by Silver Wheaton, has no interest

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 19 (Reuters) - Coeur
d'Alene Mines Corp. <CDE.N> said on Monday it has no interest
in a "puzzling" silver subsidiary planned by Wheaton River
Minerals Inc. <WRM.TO>, the Canadian miner that Coeur is trying
to purchase.
"From Coeur's perspective, based on the limited information
available, the transaction is not one that Coeur would
undertake or approve," the Idaho-based silver producer said in
a letter to Wheaton's directors, five days after the
Vancouver-based firm said it planned to create a company called
Silver Wheaton.
Wheaton, which has rejected Coeur's C$2.5 billion ($1.9
billion) offer, plans to sell all of the silver produced at its
Luismin operation in Mexico to a shell company, in which it
will own an 80 percent stake.
The firm argued that the deal was aimed at unlocking the
value of its silver assets and at positioning Wheaton more
clearly as a gold miner.
But some shareholders questioned whether the transaction
was a ruse to get Coeur off its back by packaging its silver
asset separately for the world's biggest primary silver
producer.
Wheaton denied this, saying the deal would close after the
expiry of Coeur's takeover offer on Aug. 27. So, if Coeur's bid
is successful, it can decide to halt the transaction.
"We doubt whether the proposed transaction will have any
significant positive impact on Wheaton's market valuation,"
Coeur chairman and chief executive Dennis Wheeler said, adding
that his firm had viewed the deal with "some puzzlement".

Coeur Offers Update on San Bartolome Silver Project in Bolivia
2006-12-19 | 12:54
COEUR D ALENE, Idaho, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

Coeur d Alene Mines Corporation
(NYSE: CDE, TSX:CDM) today announced an updated summary of
engineering and construction progress on the San Bartolome
silver mine, which is targeted for completion near the end
of 2007.


Engineering

Overall engineering and procurement activities continue
to move forward at an aggressive pace and are nearly
two-thirds complete. All major equipment purchase orders
have been released, including the main power transformer,
SAG and ball mills, and other related major process and
recovery equipment.

Construction

The company recently initiated construction on the
approximately $30 million tailings facility.
Site preparation work is nearly complete for the process
plant area. Eight contractors are currently on site,
including ICE, the Bolivian firm responsible for
construction of the tailings facility, and Fluor
Corporation, which is acting as EPCM contractor.
During the current phase of construction, the project
expects to employ as many as 300 Bolivian workers, with
an increase in that number as construction continues
to ramp up.

In addition, the company has awarded the contracts for
structural steel supply, concrete supply, and concrete
installation.

Government Relations

The Government of Bolivia has repeatedly stated that it
welcomes foreign investment in Bolivia in the mining
sector and that private property rights will be respected.
In addition, the company continues to receive specific
expressions of support from the Government for
the San Bartolome project.

San Bartolome Silver Mine -

The San Bartolome silver mine is being developed by
Empresa Minera Manquiri S.A., a wholly owned subsidiary
of Coeur d Alene Mines.
The mine is located near the town of Potosi, Bolivia.
The project has silver mineral reserves of 152 million ounces.
The mine is expected to produce
approximately 9 million ounces of silver
in its first full year of operation and
between 6 and 8 million ounces per year thereafter.


Coeur d Alene Mines Corporation is one of the world's
leading primary silver producers and has a strong presence
in gold.
The company has mining interests in Alaska, Argentina,
Australia, Bolivia, Chile, and Nevada.

Cautionary Statement

Company press releases may contain numerous forward-looking
statements ----significantly from the estimates presented.
Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on
forward-looking statements. The company disclaims any
intent or obligation to update publicly such
forward-looking statements, whether as a result
of new information, future events or otherwise.

The definitions of proven and probable mineral reserves
and resources under Canadian National Instrument 43-101
are substantially identical to the definitions of such
reserves under Guide 7 of the SEC's Securities Act
Industry Guides.
Mineral resources are in addition to mineral reserves
and have not demonstrated economic viability.

Donald J. Birak,
Coeur's Senior Vice President of Exploration,
is the qualified person responsible for the preparation
of the scientific and technical information in this document.
Mr. Birak has reviewed the available data and procedures and
believes the collection of exploration data and calculation
of mineral reserves reported in this document was conducted
in a professional and competent manner.
For a description of the key assumptions, parameters and
methods used to estimate the San Bartolome mineral reserves
and resources, as well as a general discussion of the extent
to which the estimates may be affected by any known
environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation,
socio-political, marketing or other relevant factors,

San Bartolome - Leading Coeur's Next Generation in Silver -



Leading Coeur's new growth in silver is San Bartolome,
the largest new primary silver mine to be built in
the Americas in decades.
With construction underway, this major Bolivian silver mine
is scheduled for annualized production -
of more than 8 million ounces of silver.

Construction of the open pit milling operation and processing
facility is expected to cost approximately $174 million.

The new facility could be completed near the end of 2007,
with commercial production beginning in January 2008.

Cash operating costs are anticipated at $4.00 per ounce
in the initial years, which at recent market prices would
generate significant cash flow for the Company.

Total proven and probable reserves of more that 150 million
ounces of silver are contained in surface gravel deposits,
or pallacos, which lend themselves to simple, low-tech
surface-mining techniques.

Of the several pallaco deposits which are controlled by
Coeur and surround Cerro Rico mountain,
three are of primary importance and are known as
Huacajchi,
Diablo (consisting of Diablo Norte, and Diablo Este) and
Santa Rita.

The facilities will be located near established industrial
infrastructure in the historically silver-rich area of
Potosí, Bolivia,
where more than two billion ounces of silver have been mined.



The building of the new mine -
is expected to generate as many as 1,000 local jobs
during construction, and
approximately 200 full-time jobs during operations.

The project will also establish a foundation, called
Fundespo,
to assist in the development of new local industries,
such as silversmithing and tourism -
