Gold Investors Stay Focused / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week was an eventful week at home and abroad with several events directly showing up in the performance of global markets and the price of gold. On Friday, Egypt’s mayhem in the streets caused uncertainty in the markets, but sent gold shooting up over $21 to close at $1,336.75.

On Wednesday, a continuation of the Federal Reserve’s easy monetary policy pushed gold up double-digits. Earlier in the week, a small hedge fund that had overleveraged itself to gold futures blew out its position, causing the biggest ever one-day reduction in futures contracts for the Comex.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF gold eased back from near 1-week highs early in London on Monday, cutting Friday's 2.8% surge by one third as Asian stock markets closed the day sharply lower.

European shares also fell, together with US, UK and German government bonds, which nudged interest rates higher.

Gold Bar Premiums Hit 17-Year High in Hong Kong On Safe Haven Bid on Inflation and Egypt Concerns / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe geopolitical ramifications of the revolution in Egypt and the likelihood that it will spread throughout the Middle East, North Africa and possibly further afield is leading to volatility in markets. Equity indices in the Middle East and Far East were mostly down (except for China) overnight. European bourses were under pressure this morning but have recovered somewhat.

How to Profit From Obama's New Clean Energy Challenge / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKent Moors, Ph.D. writes: In last week's State of the Union address, U.S. President Barack Obama issued a national challenge: Take the 11.5% of the U.S. electricity that emanates from clean-energy sources and boost it to 80% by 2035.

As with any game-changing direction - landing a man on the moon in a decade, bringing an end to the Cold War, curing cancer, or weaning our economy off of coal and crude oil - leaders such as President Obama provide the enticement.

By: Dian_L_Chu

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImages of mass Egyptian protesters clashing with police in Cairo broadcasted around the world shook global financial markets on Friday, Jan. 28. Dow and S&P 500 both dropped more than 1%, while some asset classes such as gold, silver, U.S. Treasuries were hot commodities from safe haven demand.

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

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have seen some exciting moves in the market and with the market sentiment so bullish it should make for a sharp selloff in the coming weeks. Meaning everyone is overly bullish and owns a lot of stocks and commodities; therefore the market should top and leave them holding the bag while the smart money runs for the door. The market will not bottom until all of these individuals holding the bag finally cannot take the pain of losing any more money and once we see them panic and sell them all at once only then will we be looking to go long again.

Gold and Silver Opportunity Before Blast Off / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA rare and exceptional opportunity has just presented itself to enter this Precious Metals bullmarket at very favorable prices for gold, silver and especially for Precious Metals stocks - right at an intermediate bottom. That is what our latest studies indicate.

While gold dropped a little lower last week than expected in the last update, it has arrived in an area of strong support above its rising 200-day moving average in a deeply oversold condition, as we can see on its 8-month chart below. Thus it is interesting to observe that a bullish candlestick pattern, known as a "Piercing Pattern", appeared on its chart on Thursday and Friday, which frequently signifies a reversal.

Rising Debt and Manipulation of the Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

The US welfare state rumbles on and in some sectors of business it is being encouraged. We have to assume this attitude is based on more and increasing profits. Needless to say, it is cloaked in language that refers to the poor suffering people. The economy in the US and in many other countries is being run by and for major corporate interests.

Australian Floods Cause Drought in the Coal Market / Commodities / Coal

By: Marin_Katusa

Marin Katusa, Casey’s Energy Report writes: The most important metallurgical coal basin in the world is underwater. Open pits have become lakes, stockpiles are soaked, and rail lines are submerged and in places destroyed. Damage is estimated at $5 to $6 billion.

Australia accounts for almost two-thirds of global coking coal production. Much of it comes from Queensland, where an area the size of France and Germany combined is underwater. That includes the Bowen Basin coal region, which produces almost a third of the world's coking coal. The Bowen Basin was hit with 350 mm of rain in December, against an average of 102 mm.

Gold Short-Term Rally? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJanuary has been a tough month for gold. From its year-end 2010 price of $1,420 an ounce to its recent low just over $1,320, gold has lost some $100 - about seven percent. In percentage terms, this doesn’t amount to much of a correction in the metal’s 10-year- old bull market. Gold has corrected in price in excess of 20% no less than 46 times since the onset of the bull market in 2001. Each time, the market mavens heralded the bull market’s demise.

On Wednesday, the World Gold Council published its annual Gold Investment Digest for the fourth quarter and full-year 2010 with some interesting insights.

Silver Supply Shortage? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jason_Hamlin

There are some bizarre things going on in the silver market at the moment, reminiscent of the supply shortages and high premiums witnessed in 2008. For starters, silver is currently in both short-term and long-term backwardation, suggesting there is higher demand for silver NOW than in the future. This is backed up by the U.S. mint reporting all-time record sales for silver eagles during the month of January, with three days still left to go. Sales are on pace to breach 5 million coins sold, shattering the November 2010 record of 4.6 million. It is worth noting that all of the 2010 American eagle gold proof coins also sold out, but the focus of this article will be on the increasing signs of a shortage in silver.

Gold, It's Time to Buy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe value of gold may be plummeting but many gold stocks are clocking double-digit gains, according to Lawrence Roulston, the editor of the Resource Opportunities newsletter and an expert on mining investments."It's definitely a buying opportunity. The fundamentals are strong, and we're seeing weaknesses in the prices on a short-term basis here," he says. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Roulston explains why he loves the prospect generator model and why now is the perfect time to snub bullion and cozy up to mining equities.

Silver Futures Market Developments, Commitment of Traders Report / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter rocketing 76% higher in just 5 months, silver continues to enthrall investors and speculators.  In the decade I’ve been gaming its bull through actively trading silver stocks, I’ve never seen this metal so popular.  As more traders discover silver and start following and trading it, I’ve heard a lot of questions on a recent development in the silver-futures market.  Its open interest recently declined sharply.

Great Gold, Silver & Green Investment Opportunities Arise / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Whether Americans and Westerners in general like it or not, the Chinese have become and will remain the key drivers to many economic and financial market developments, progress, and averted wreckage. The intrepid lapdog US press, loyal to the syndicate, is a critical element to maintain distractions… for years they have maintained a tight link in monetary policy. Doing so has linked their asset bubble expansion and bust cycle to the deadly one in the United States, and filled their coffers with US$-denominated toxic debt securities. However, China has three advantages over the US… They have $2.65 trillion in savings… a vast industrial base, courtesy of the US, the West, and Japan, which donated the technology… They have an expanding middle class… It is slowly becoming clear that the US granted the Most Favored Nation status to China in return for massive gold & silver swaps to the USGovt. The Wall Street fraud kings illicitly sold the leased bullion into the market, to sustain the American fiat paper congame, and thus a betrayal to the Chinese.

Why Is the Gold Price Going Down? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Alongside the falling gold price we have watched shareholders in the U.S. gold ETF, SPDR selling nearly 100 tonnes of gold over the last few weeks. The selling of gold has come from the U.S. and mainly seen at the Fixes in London at 10.30 a.m. London time or 3.00 p.m. When shareholders sell their shares the custodian HSBC is tasked with selling the fund's gold holding against these sales. As one of the five members of the Gold Fixing in London, where 90% of the world's physical gold is traded, this would be the ideal market in which to sell this gold. This is why the two daily Fixes are where the current gold price is being made. But why are U.S. gold Investors in the SPDR gold ETF selling their gold [shares]?
