NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- Gold stocks surged Wednesday as gold futures gained nearly $20 an ounce to settle at a 1-month high on optimism that lawmakers could make a deal which would avoid the upcoming "fiscal cliff." The Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) spiked 1.5 percent Wednesday. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Gold Industry and provides equity research on Newmont Mining Corp. (NYSE: NEM) and Goldcorp Inc. (NYSE: GG) (TSX: G).
The "fiscal cliff" is a combination of government spending cuts and tax increases set to take effect at the beginning of 2013 unless lawmakers reach a compromise on a new budget deal. The Treasury Department has recently reported that the October deficit, which is the first month of the new fiscal year, grew 22 percent to $120 billion. Gold historically has gained in times of economic uncertainty as investors look to it as a safe haven.
"Unless there is a clear agreement between the Democrats and Republicans on the solution to the so-called U.S. fiscal cliff, the short-term direction is bullish for gold," said Chintan Karnani, chief analyst at Insignia Consultants.
