Silver SLV ETF Impact / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver’s massive autumn rally has utterly captivated speculators and investors, their appetite for all things silver is insatiable.  Interestingly a major driver of this metal’s recent surge was stock-market buying of the flagship silver ETF, SLV.  The larger and more popular this fund grows, the greater its ongoing impact on silver prices.

SLV was born in late April 2006, so it is relatively young as far as exchange-traded funds go.  Though its birth was shrouded in controversy, SLV has rapidly grown into a smashing success.  Now holding $10.2b worth of physical silver bullion in trust for its shareholders, it is already one of the world’s largest ETFs.  And as more stock investors get interested in silver exposure, SLV will only continue to grow.

How Far Does Gold Drop? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Farrish

Open any financial website or periodical and you can find plenty to read relative to the price of gold. Why the concerns and selling of gold currently? The short version is it comes down to the economic outlook. The US economy has been gradually improving along with the employment data and that has impacted part of the reason investors were buying gold, an alternative investment. The improving data out of Europe over the last couple of days relative to the sovereign debt issues facing the EU nations has been put to rest temporarily and that is pushing gold prices lower as well.

U.S. Dollar, Gold, & Silver Were Down on Thursday – Really? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. Dollar Index Futures have been sold heavily and interestingly enough, gold and silver have not rallied. In fact, gold and silver have sold off while the dollar experienced downward price action as well. How does that whole scenario make any sense? I do not fancy myself as an expert in the area of reasoning why a stock or commodity rises or falls. I firmly believe that the media is nearly always wrong as to the real reasons stocks and commodities are rallying or falling.

Changing to a Silver Economy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA libertarian in Columbia, South Carolina sent me a message recently. He works at a convenience store. He was interested in introducing silver as a means of payment or currency at this store. His specific ideas I thought would not work because of the taxes on silver. The government treats silver as a collectible subject to income taxes at ordinary rates. He had some ideas of buying bullion and then setting up a market in it by buying at a small discount to the spot price and selling at a small premium, thereby creating a bid-ask spread. He had some idea of getting people to transact in silver.

The Coming Flood of Yuan and Chinese Gold Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile China is taking a greater portion of our financial attention on a daily basis, it seems to us that the sheer size of China and its continued growth has not been factored into the world economic perspective, even now. One of the consequences of profit driven capitalism in the past was the relocation of manufacturing from high-cost, developed countries to the lower cost country of China. U.S. corporations that did that, have enjoyed better-than-ever profits, but in the process have educated new, Chinese, lower-priced competition that will overwhelm us all in the future. The enrichment of China and its arrival on the world scene will surpass the U.S. as the largest world economy by 2020 at the latest [we would not be surprised if this happened even before 2015]. This will trigger a financial tsunami that will change they way we think and invest.

Forgotten Treasure: Unconventional Crude Oil in the Middle East / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Marin_Katusa

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey’s Energy Report writes: As the conventional and cheap oil and gas start to dry up in the Middle East... a bigger, even better opportunity seeks to replace it.

For many who aren't familiar with the region, the Middle East comes across as an updated version of Lawrence's Arabia, only with lots of oil. But this mosaic of cultures isn't made up of only Arabs or Muslims, and most Middle East countries are neither awash with heavily armed, rather excitable citizenry... nor with black gold, which is what we're interested in. Twenty-three countries comprise the Arab League, but only Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Iran are major oil producers.

Who, How and Why: Crude Oil $140 and $5 Gas / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

According to a loosely-organized apocalyptic Christian movement, May 21, 2011 will be the "end of days." On or about that same date, the price of oil in the United States will begin to climb to $4 a gallon, according to two savants of the oil industry.

The former is highly unlikely but the latter is very probable.

Crude Oil Prices Push to Two-year High / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: LiveCharts

Oil prices closed at their highest level since October 28th after a settle price of $91.86 on Wednesday. The current (January 13) price is $91.79 on the New York NYMEX for one barrel of light sweet crude futures scheduled for February delivery.

Increased demand for oil, lower inventory levels, and speculative interest are credited for driving oil to its current levels.

Gold Versus Defective Economists and Delusional Leaders on Drugs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has always been my opinion that the so-called science of economics in its current form is victim to the problem of not being able to see the forest because of the trees. The fact that 60 percent of 242 members of the National Association for Business Economics think that the U.S. Federal Reserve is doing the world a favour by maintaining non-existent interest rates is hard evidence in support thereof. If you give something away (money) at no cost, then its value is zero. Something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. Why oh why do our illustrious leaders fail to grasp such elementary logic?

By: Adrian_Ash

Gold, Silver and the Dollar’s Next Big Move / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a potentially big setup in precious metals sector along with the dollar which looks like its about to unfold. Since mid-October of last year gold started to show signs of distribution selling. Only a month later in November silver started warning us that some big players were taking some profits off the table also. Distribution selling is easy to spot on the charts. In short you will see heavy volume selling accompanied with strong moves to the downside.

Silver's Tactical Performance / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

“Tactical performance” is a word we'll all have to grow accustomed to reading, as more and more weight of the markets is placed in the hands of investment managers or quick acting computer models. 

The best example of tactical performance was the first week of trading for the gold and silver markets, when there were numerous “tactical” changes to investment portfolios, as we just witnessed.  Such reallocation (taking profits from winners, adding to undervalued losers) is big business, and fund managers like to make such portfolio revisions at a time most convenient: late December and early January.

China Sets Stage for Vacuuming World's Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

China's monetary policy is increasingly a main driver of gold and silver prices because so many Chinese can now afford metal investments and are willing to snap them up. 

Recently, though, China took one of the most aggressive steps to take control of the 2011 silver supply.  This year, China anticipates it will allow its currency to advance some 5% against the dollar after previously allowing for only a 3.6% advance in 2010.  Such a massive increase, many believe, could tip the metals scale.
