Gold Stocks Break to New Highs Against Equities / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn our most recent commentary we wrote about the relative strength in the gold equities. Gold equities have not only bucked the downtrend in the equity markets but in relative terms are breaking to new highs against equity indices. In the chart below we plot precious metals prices, GDX versus the Morgan Stanley World Index and GDX versus the S&P 500. We highlight how each performed during bear markets. Other than in the crash in 2008, precious metals and the equities have performed quite well during times of struggle for conventional stocks.

Silver Heading Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Paulenoff

From a big picture pattern perspective, all of the action in the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) off of the major April high at 48.32 has carved out a base-like "cup" formation from early May to late July, which has been followed by a correction that has taken the shape of a "handle."

The composite picture produces a "cup-and-handle" intermediate-term bottom formation, which should propel silver prices -- and the SLV -- considering higher in the upcoming days and weeks.

Is Another Gold Boom Waiting to Happen? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Gold (NYSE:GLD) has been in an uptrend for over a decade now. Last week, gold climbed above $1800 per ounce before consolidating. Although gold seems to break a new nominal high every other day, the gold critics have been consistently wrong about gold being in a bubble. In fact, Geroge Soros called gold in late 2010 the “ultimate bubble.” Many investors may be wondering where the next catalyst for higher gold prices will come from (besides more money printing).

The Truth About Crude Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Kent Moors writes: Traditionally, demand levels would determine the overall condition of the oil market. Supply (and the investment required for that supply) would be based upon what demand told us.

Actually, oil never reflected the demand-supply relationship as well as other sectors of the market. Oil has an irritating habit of not reflecting what it should in the dynamics of market play. Until recently, petroleum economists would comment (or lament) about the demand inelasticity of oil. That means, due to the lack of available alternatives (especially in transportation), demand for oil products would not decline as the price rose.

On the Verge of a Gold Stock Explosion / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's probably the #1 question on gold stock investors' minds. Are we on the verge of a repeat of the 2008 wipe-out.

Just by the very fact that we have had so many subscribers ask us this question, we can almost on this evidence alone say no. Massive crashes never happen when everyone is looking for them and afraid of it.

Increased Production No Threat to Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Financial modeling is a science composed of complex “if, then” statements; this is evidenced clearly by the number of investment bankers who work 100 hour weeks toiling through Excel spreadsheets of merger and acquisition deals.

Bankers have it easier than most investors in completing modeling.  For one, institutions assume an infinite timetable, as most banks outlive the humans that staff it. Secondly, banks have the ability to operate on the premise of cash flow, which is fairly simple to understand.  If returns are larger in dollar terms than the cost to borrow, then a business can be levered.

Chavez Sends Gold GLD ETF a Wakeup Call / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: George_Maniere

           OK. Let the fun begin! Yesterday Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced that planned to nationalize his countries gold mining industry in an attempt to increase its international reserves. This is not an unprecedented move. He has already nationalized the banking industry, telecommunication companies, the oil fields, the producers of power for the country and millions of acres of farm land. President Chavez said that the nationalization of the gold industry was to protect the people of Venezuela from having their gold fall into the hands of the mafia and smugglers.

Gold and Silver Full Sprectrum Dominance / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and Silver have emerged in the last 12 months as the dominant asset group. They led the entire 2000 decade, still gathering disrespect. They do not require respect from the Wall Street and London crowd. They serve as effective protection during the slow motion crumbling process to the global monetary system. The sovereign bond crisis has circled the peripheral nations, rendered its wreckage, and is working toward the center where the USTBond and UKGilt reside (worried). Italy and Spain are squarely in the crosshairs for financial assaults, but France and the United States lie closer to the core of Western nation sacred debt territory, soon to become sacred burial grounds.
