How Gold Can Protect Your Portfolio From the Economic Insanity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Nick_Barisheff

Investors should be gravely concerned about the future of their portfolios, according to a newly released report from Bullion Management Group Inc (BMG). The reason? Because today’s fiscal and monetary policies have set the stage for a wrenching period of currency devaluation, portfolio destruction and potentially devastating inflation.

Premiums on British Gold Sovereigns and Eagle Demand Show Lack of "Irrational Exuberance" / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has fallen marginally in all major currencies today. Market participants are winding down before the holiday break and further profit taking and year end book squaring is seeing volume fall and gold remain in a tight range. Gold will likely get direction from the durable goods orders, consumer sentiment and new home sales data later today.

How to Spot the Top of the Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChris Weber writes: I recently read an article about the famous Aden sisters in BusinessWeek. Something Mary Anne Aden said in it really struck a chord with me.

In the midst of showing the generally fantastic track record of the Adens, they talk about their "biggest goof": how they stayed bullish on gold in the early 1980s. "We were new to the game," said Mary Anne. "We were feeling enormous pressure from our subscribers to stay bullish."

Gold Rises as UK Finances Deteriorate and IMF Gold Sales End / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Gold Rises as UK Finances Deteriorate and IMF Gold Sales End

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver edged moderately higher again yesterday in most currencies. Profit taking and book squaring prior to year end have led to lacklustre range bound price action. News that the IMF gold sales to central banks has been completed, saw gold prices rise slightly. Despite the gold sales being off market - directly from the IMF to creditor nation central banks diversifying monetary reserves - the potential overhang of IMF gold supply and perceived risk was one of the few bearish factors in the gold market.

Gold is currently trading at $1,389.32/oz, €1,057.08/oz and £898.31/oz.

Silver Outperforms Gold - Profit! Silver Underperform Gold - Profit Again! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Mike_Stall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn our earlier essay, we saw how the silver-gold pair is ideal to bet on for mean reversion. We also saw how to make use of the mean reverting properties of any ratio. Continuing on that topic, we will investigate whether mean reversion holds true for the gold-silver ratio in particular. We will examine variables one should watch over when looking at regime changes (points where the mean is set to new values). We will also explore a simplistic trading strategy on the ratio based on some core parameters that determine entry and exit points.

Gold's 2011 Bullish Outlook as US at Risk of Joining Eurozone in Debt Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is up slightly after yesterday's 0.5% gain and appears to be consolidating just below $1400/oz. Gold is being supported by growing energy and food inflation and continued sovereign debt concerns. Recent days have seen the cost of insuring French debt rise to record levels and France's AAA rating is now at risk due to the spreading Eurozone debt contagion. Nor is the US immune to the debt crisis as many US cities are at risk of defaulting in 2011 (see news below). Gold may be anticipating problems in this regard in 2011 - as it has done in recent years.

Fed Shortsighted QE Policy Fuels the Continuing Gold Price Rise / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Washington doesn't agree on much these days, with one glaring exception: that the U.S. is facing a long-term fiscal crisis. The federal government's debt is now $13.8 trillion and is projected to hit $20 trillion by the end of the coming decade-when it will be the highest level as a share of the economy that the U.S. has seen in 50 years. In September the International Monetary Fund warned that the U.S. is moving dangerously close to a point at which spooked markets will send interest rates on new borrowing to devastatingly high levels. As it is, the government is on course to spend $1 trillion per year on interest costs alone-about a quarter of all federal spending. ‘We are accumulating debt burdens that will rival a third-world nation within 10 years,’ says David Walker, former chairman of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. ‘Once you end up losing the confidence of the markets, things happen very suddenly-and very dramatically. We've seen that in Greece, we've seen it in Ireland, and we must not see it happen in the United States.’" - Michael Crowley, The New York Times

Why Gold is About To Power Higher to Complete a Big Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: David_Banister

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold bull has been moving in very reliable Elliott Wave and Fibonacci patterns for many years now, but once in awhile  the waters get a little murky for sure.  Recently we have seen a fair amount of volatility near year end as position squaring and year end machinations take hold.  With that said, it does appear that Gold should be poised to power higher near term, and I’m looking for a completion to a 5 wave rally that began from about $1,040 per ounce in February of this year.

By: Rosanne_Lim

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStarting January, American workers will start to see changes in their paychecks as the Social Security tax break that was signed into law last Friday takes effect. Workers normally allocate 6.2% of their wages to Social Security on the first $106,800. This will be reduced to 4.2%. The Social Security tax cut is just one part of the package that was passed. Additional measures include extending benefits for the long-term unemployed and passing a lower tax rate for inheritance above $10 million (from the proposed 45% to 35%).

Gold and Silver Trend Line Targets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRight now commodities are where the action is in the financial markets.  And the precious metals are where the action is in the commodities market.  And silver is where the action is (for the time being) in the precious metals markets.

Silver can be described as gold’s little brother.  It lags along behind gold, underperforming for a long time.  Then, all of a sudden, it comes to life, makes up all of its underperformance and goes on to exceed gold to the upside.
