The Dynamics of Gold Prices, Gold Mining Stock Prices and Stock Market Prices Comovements
We examine the dynamic relationships between gold prices, stock price indices of gold mining companies and broad stock market indices. Evidence of cointegration between these variables is found. A vector error-correction model reveals that both gold and large-cap stock prices adjust to disturbances to restore the long-term relationship between the variables.
Short-term unidirectional causal relationships are running from large-cap stock prices to gold mining company stock prices and from gold mining company stock prices to gold prices.

Last week’s gloom turned into euphoria as investors sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 11%, the biggest one-day gain since 1933. It was the fifth-largest percentage gain ever, and it came immediately after an 18% weekly decline, the worst such drop in the Dow’s 112-year history.

Bright Monday at the Markets
Stocks rallied Monday, snapping a brutal losing streak after governments around the world took action to shore up the global financial system.
The head-snapping shift in sentiment, spurred by global plans for governments to rescue banks through direct capital injections, left investors debating whether this marked the end of the past year’s frightening bear market, or just a temporary respite.
History tells a mixed story of rallies like Monday’s. Of the five past one-day gains of 10% or more, two marked the end of bear markets, in 1987 and 1933. But three — in 1929, 1931 and 1932 — proved short-lived, and were followed by further declines. Because of that, market historians were reluctant to make definitive judgments about the one-day event.
"We don’t know yet whether the bear market is over, but we do know about the medium term," says Phil Roth, chief technical market analyst at Wall Street brokerage firm Miller Tabak + Co. "This is a big clean-out, so we will get some recovery here now."
"People can say, ‘Whew, we survived the financial crisis.’ But then we have the issue of the recession, and we don’t know how deep that will be," he says.
The Dow surged 936.42 points to 9387.61, its largest one-day point gain ever. Monday’s session ended eight consecutive trading days of losses, and wiped out almost all the blue-chip index’s losses from the last three days of last week. The Dow finished just below Tuesday’s close.
Even so, the Dow remains down 34% from its record 14164.53, hit Oct. 9, 2007, and down 13% in October alone. It is at a level it first reached in January 1999.
As Wall Street veterans tried to figure out what the day meant, they had to pull out their history books. For most of the day, it looked like the biggest one-day rally since Oct. 21, 1987 — just after the crash. But after a late-day 300-point surge, Monday’s gain surpassed that 1987 rally.
Some noted that the heavy buying occurred on Columbus Day, when the main U.S. bond markets were closed. That meant that investors couldn’t get a clear idea of how the surge would affect the debt markets, which have been behind much of the financial trouble. And while the price-swing was enormous, total trading volume of New York Stock Exchange stocks was below average for this volatile month. At 7.12 billion shares, it nevertheless was the 15th-heaviest trading day ever.
Investors got more good news after trading ended. Word surfaced that the Bush administration’s plan would include investing roughly $250 billion in banks, providing guarantees of bank debt, and increasing the insurance on certain bank deposits, according to people familiar with the plans. Bank-rescue plans unveiled Monday in Europe helped lift the U.S. stock market.
There were some signs around the globe of relief in bond markets as well.
European bond markets were open on Monday. Investors there reacted by selling short-term, ultrasafe bonds and moving back into stocks, reversing the flight to the relative safety of government bonds that has been underway for weeks. German government bonds that mature in two years fell in price, pushing the yield up 0.13 percentage point to 3.18%.
The futures market where investors bet on U.S. Treasury bonds was also open. Trading there suggested that investors expect a similar decline in price and rise in yield for short-term Treasury bills and longer-term Treasury bonds on Tuesday. The price of a 10-year Treasury note futures contract fell to its lowest level since early August, according to Optima Investment Research.
There also were signs that banks’ fears of lending to one another may begin to abate. The cost of futures contracts that correlate to the market rate at which banks lend to one another — the London interbank offered rate, or Libor — suggested that traders believe Libor will come down, another sign of relief. Three-month sterling Libor fell slightly on Monday, suggesting that other dollar-based bank-lending rates may decline on Tuesday.
During last week’s stock selloff, the market tumbled during the last hour of trading nearly every day. But on Monday, stocks soared at the end of the day. Joseph Saluzzi, co-head of stock trading at Themis Trading, says some investors watched the market rise all day, hoping for a decline so they could buy in more cheaply. But when that never happened, they feared missing out on the big rally and rushed to buy stocks.
In addition, some large institutions, such as index funds, have a policy of making their trades at day’s end, which can lead to exaggerated late mov

Yes kicked around unsuccessfully for a couple of years before releasing their breakthrough 1971 record.

But from the very start they epitomized the prog rock movement, with a combination of vast technical proficiency, frustrating lyrical shallowness, and boundless egotism – Genesis and Pink Floyd failed on the first count, although King Crimson and ELP were similar in many ways.

I’ve always found them to be a bit over the top, but there’s still a lot of pleasant pop balladeering to be found on their early records, mostly courtesy of singer/songwriter Jon Anderson.

In fact, the vocal combination of Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, and other band members gave them better harmonies than any other major prog rock act.

And their concept albums and lengthy live jams earned them a huge fan following and massive commercial success.

The Yes discography would be fairly straightforward if it weren’t for the band’s incessant personnel changes, with only Anderson and Squire being nearly constant elements (Yes and Crimson traded or nearly traded band members several times).

By the late 1980s this resulted in two full bands of Yes veterans touring and recording simultaneously – since Squire had rights to the "Yes" title, the alternative, but more classic Yes lineup of Anderson, Wakeman, Bruford and Howe had to work under their own names.

To make matters even more confusing, the classic Yes lineup reunited to cut yet another live record in 1996, and a different lineup with Wakeman replaced by a new player is touring right now.

A major sidelight to the Yes story is the solo career of Rick Wakeman, who vied with Keith Emerson for the title of hottest 70s prog rock keyboard player, and sold almost as many records as Yes did during his mid-70s commercial peak.

The master of keyboard-focused instrumental concept albums, he continued to put out numerous solo records even when his career fell into obscurity. I’ve listed only his 70s records and 80s vocal records because I have no plans to review his voluminous 80s and 90s New Age and ambient music catalogue.

Bill Bruford has had a long, independent career as off-and-on drummer for King Crimson and as a solo artist, and I have reviewed some of his solo work on our Crimson page.

I have listed Chris Squire’s only solo album; there are also quite a few solo albums by Howe and Anderson, none of which I have; and I wouldn’t be surprised if other Yes members recorded solo albums as well (Rabin? Kaye?).

There’s a large Yes web site with plenty of gossip, albums covers, fanzines, historical info, etc. It’s got a good text-only discography, but a better organized HTML discography is available elsewhere.

There’s also a graphics-heavy, but informative commercial Rick Wakeman site, which Wakeman himself has a heavy hand in. (JA)

Lineup:

Jon Anderson (vocals), Peter Banks (guitar), Bill Bruford (drums), Tony Kaye (keyboards), Chris Squire (bass, vocals). Banks replaced by Steve Howe (guitar, vocals), 1970. Kaye replaced by Rick Wakeman (keyboards), late 1971.

Bruford left to join King Crimson, replaced by Alan White (drums), 1972. Wakeman replaced by Patrick Moraz (keyboards), 1974, returned to replace Moraz, 1976, quit again along with Anderson and replaced by Geoff Downes (keyboards), early 1980. Trevor Horn (bass, vocals) appeared on one album track and toured with the group, 1980.

Band collapsed, late 1980, reformed with Anderson, Kaye, Squire, White, and Trevor Rabin, 1983. Anderson quit again, 1990, joined again, 1994.

Yes (1969)
On their debut record Yes didn’t really have its own schtick worked out yet. So it ended up with some straightforward, catchy, and not very original riff tunes, like the upbeat "Looking Around," paper-thin but pretty "Yesterday And Today," and stately, aptly titled "Sweetness."

There are also a few meandering, breezy, and thin-sounding pop mini-symphonies ("Survival"), and a couple good covers – the Beatles’ "Every Little Thing," with a startlingly Nice-like intro and a wonderfully harmonized chorus; and the Byrds’ "I See You," not a great song in the first place, but Banks’ jazzy, Hendrix-inspired soloing makes it a little interesting.

This is 60s prog rock with all the Beatlesy trimmings, and even though it’s faceless, it’s also entertaining and well-performed. Be prepared for a pleasant surprise if classic 70s Yes is what you’re used to. (JA)
