NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- Gold stocks have surged recently on optimism that policy makers would come up with an alternative to the upcoming "fiscal cliff." Gold prices have gained 6 percent in 2012, marking its 12th consecutive year of gains. The Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) spiked 3.36 percent on the last trading day of 2012. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Gold Industry and provides equity research on Goldcorp Inc. (NYSE: GG)(TSX: G) and IAMGOLD Corporation (NYSE: IAG)(TSX: IMG).
Gold futures surged 1.2 percent to end the year as news broke a deal to resolve the fiscal cliff was "within sight" according to a statement by the President. Prices for the commodity had been dragged down in December, down 2.1 percent for the month, as investors braced for higher taxes in the coming year.
"Today it appears that an agreement to prevent this New Year's tax hike is within sight, but it is not done," President Obama said. "There are still issues left to resolve, but we're hopeful that Congress can get it done, but it's not done."
