Economic Recovery and the Price of Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a difference a month makes! It was only a month ago a leading financial publication came out with the story, "U.S. economy still hemorrhaging jobs despite stimulus." The press was all over the employment data and concluded that the stimulus had utterly failed. They were of course making the classic mistake of treating the employment numbers as coincident indicators, when in fact employment is the ultimate lagging indicator.

Gold Resists Strong U.S. Dollar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD in the wholesale bullion market slipped from an early 1-month high Monday morning, trading 2.1% above last week's start as strong gains in Japanese and Chinese stocks failed to carry over onto European bourses.

US crude oil contracts hit $80.00 per barrel, and the Euro gave back half-a-cent of Friday's 2¢ surge.

Gold Gearing Up for a Big Move / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been a sense in the gold market through the month of February that gold is going down, a sense of negativity and discouragement.  Gold bugs are giving up and pulling out.  The U.S. dollar index hit 81 on Friday.  The Fed is tightening.  “What more,” say the bears, “is there to say?”

Is this true?  Is gold going down? Let us look at the chart.

What's Next for the U.S. Dollar and Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week was strong with stocks and commodities moving up sharply. As nice as it was to see a rally, I still have my doubts whether this move has legs behind it. As prices moved higher throughout the week we saw volume become thinner and thinner.

Gold and Euro, A New Tango For 2010 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. dollar rose, commodity prices dropped and stocks fell last Friday after the Federal Reserve unexpectedly lifted an emergency lending rate for the first time since the financial crisis.

The dollar hit an eight-month high against a currency basket, while gold prices rose as investors bought the metal to hedge against paper currencies and debt default risks in Europe. Gold futures ended on Friday with a weekly gain of 3.1% at $1,122.10 an ounce.

Research On the Central Fund of Canada Screams "Buy Precious Metals and Miners"! / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was doing some research on the Central Fund of Canada (ticker: CEF), which is a form of "paper" Gold and silver with a long track record and a much better counterparty risk profile than dangerous Gold ETFs like GLD. Now, CEF generally holds about 60% Gold and 40% silver, so it is not a "pure" Gold fund. I don't recommend paper Gold to anyone before they have established a physical position in Gold as an insurance policy that can always be cashed in when needed. I am not affiliated with nor am I recommending for or against CEF - you must due your own due diligence!

I.M.F. 191.3 tonnes Gold Sale, What Does it Really Mean? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

When India announced its purchase of 200 tonnes, it added a statement that it may buy more of the I.M.F. gold. This implied that it was limited by the I.M.F to 200 tonnes. But the I.M.F. never said that. Rather it said it would announce the sale of any other portion of their gold to the public. It has been several months since another sale has taken place. Now with this announcement, we are given the impression that central banks have not come forward to buy and are not buyers. Talk about 'spin'!

Precious Metals' Fake Rally or Beginning of Another Strong Move Up? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvesting your money in a long-term position can be likened to navigating a ship to port. The compass (fundamental and technical analysis) points you in the right direction as you head out to sea. Even if your ship is sturdy (you have made the right call and are heading in the right direction) every once in a while a big, unexpected wave seems to push you off course.

And without question, since the beginning of the economic crisis, the seas have become especially turbulent.

Commodity Investing 2010, Palladium Still Shines / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePalladium had the most tumultuous decade of all the precious metals. Although it's hard to imagine today, it started the century more expensive than platinum. While gold and silver were languishing in 2000, palladium was soaring. During the technology bubble, a perceived shortage of tantalum caused producers of cell phones and other electronic gadgets to switch to palladium which was then much cheaper. As the price zoomed, Ford feared that it would not get enough of the element from Russia. The corporation bought large quantities in panic, pushing the price over US$1000.

Trading HUI Gold Stocks Volume Spikes / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter surging 11.9% higher in just 7 trading days, the flagship HUI gold-stock index is starting to recapture traders’ attention.  Right as this rally launched a couple weeks ago, I pointed out this sector’s exceedingly bullish technicals.  Since then, I’ve been examining secondary indicators including volume to see if they corroborate the key primary ones.

Trading volume, the number of shares changing hands in a given day, offers a valuable window into the ethereal realm of prevailing sentiment.  When traders are complacent and bored, volume dwindles.  Few get excited about trading lethargic stocks.  But when emotions run high, volume often spikes dramatically.  This is the case whether traders are suffering from excessive greed or fear.  Volume surges when traders get excited, for any reason, and want to trade more.

Hedging Non-Gold Investments With Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn Address CARA Bahamas Conference, Freeport, Grand Bahama

Ladies and Gentlemen: The cliché that the present credit collapse is "the greatest financial crisis since 1929" is the understatement of the century. One measure of the crises is the ratio of gross private debt to nominal GDP. This ratio captures the idea how many years of current output it would take to retire outstanding debt. In these terms, the crisis is truly unprecedented. The world plunged into the present crisis with far greater debt than the debt outstanding at the time when it plunged into the Great Depression in 1929. Add to this the qualitative change in the structure of debt. The most exotic of the Roaring Twenties era debt was brokers' margin lending on the stock purchases of clients.

Wind Power Green Tech Renewable Energy Investment Opportunities / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: The_Energy_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this exclusive Energy Report interview, GreenTech Opportunities editor and publisher Lawrence Roulston talks about how private enterprise has stepped up to the plate, managed to tweak technology and bring the costs of wind-powered energy production down 80% since 1980. It's to the point where wind is on the brink of being able to compete directly with conventional energy. Solar isn't as close, Lawrence says, but the virtuous circle of alternative energy is in motion and gaining momentum. Reduced costs lead to further research and development, improvements in technology, industry expansion and greater economies of scale, which lead again to lower costs, more innovation, more industry growth and cheaper energy, and round and round it goes.

Libya Courting Oil & Gas Investors but Faces a Tough Sell Following Recent Government Fiascos / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Libyan government has been sounding off lately about boosting the profile of its oil and gas market, but it’s questionable whether international companies will ignore the government’s missteps in the industry - not to mention the recent lackluster energy finds - and keep injecting money into the North African country.

The 13 Year Gold Bull Has Much More Room To Run / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: David_Banister

A few weeks ago on February 4th, I penned an article forecasting the gold correction trends and the likely outcomes. My opinion was that gold was pulling back to work off excessive optimism from the early December 09 highs. This type of pullback was orderly and there was a gap at 102.50 on the GLD ETF that I believed would fill. The following day, that gap filled and gold hit a bottom at 1042 and has rallied much higher since. I opined that the rally in the US dollar was merely cosmetic against other world currencies, and that Gold was still the preferred asset to accumulate and would begin to move regardless of the dollar moves.

There are, quite literally, so many compelling arguments for holding our favorite metal that I used to catalog them each month in our letter.

The reason there are so many “reasons” is because gold is unlike any other asset. It...

Greece Turns the Euro Into a “Carry Trade” Currency / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast year’s parabolic rallies in copper, gold, Brazilian and Russian stocks, and the Australian dollar, are running out of steam. Suddenly, there are eerie reminiscences of scarier days gone-by. Volatility has returned to the money markets, amid worries about a possible “double-dip” recession for the world economy, capital flight from European sovereign debt markets, monetary tightening in Australia, China, and India, and the President Obama’s backing for the “Volcker rule,” – which calls for a clamp-down on the speculative trading binges of the Wall Street Oligarchs.
