U.S. Dollar Chart Suggests Caution for Gold Bulls / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Spot gold prices have been in a corrective mode since mid-October and have given up a modest 5.5% from the $1387.65 high. More importantly, however, is that the price structure is probing important July-Oct support in the $1316-$1314 area, which must be contained to avert additional weakness into the area of the rising 50 DMA, now at $1295.

Gold vs Bonds / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Nick_Barisheff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost investors have a deep-seated belief that bonds are a safe investment while gold is risky and volatile. If we explore this belief with an open mind, however, we will find that gold, not bonds, offers vastly superior wealth protection.

The 2008 financial crisis saw an unprecedented move out of equities and into bonds as investors looked for a safe haven, one that would protect their portfolios. Relatively few investors chose to move into gold. This is curious because gold, unlike bonds, is an asset class that has a negative correlation to financial assets, thus providing the greatest diversification as well as protection from inflation and currency crises.

By: Adrian_Ash

INTERNATIONAL WHOLESALE prices for gold bullion rallied almost 1% from yesterday's four-session low in London on Thursday, reaching $1333.50 per ounce as European stock markets rose – along with the Euro – despite a fresh plunge in "peripheral" Eurozone bond prices.

Crude oil ticked back above $82 per barrel. Silver prices held steady around $23.75 per ounce after an "extremely volatile" session on Wednesday in the words of one London trader.

Gold Slumps as Palladium Rises on Supply Concerns Could Soar to over $1,000/oz / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold fell 1.1% yesterday and silver by 1.5% as expectations regarding the scale of QE2 were eased back to the $1 trillion to $2 trillion mark and assertions that the money printing would be done on a more gradual basis eased concerns. The dollar's weakness today is leading to tentative strength in the precious metal markets.

The Silver Sleuth from Big Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

Jeff Clark, Senior Editor, BIG GOLD writes: We once had an ongoing series in BIG GOLD called, "1001 Reasons to Own Gold." The idea was that there were so many valid reasons to own the metal that I wanted to track and report on them. If you've been invested in the precious metals arena, you know there have been a myriad of bullish indicators for silver this year as well.

Here's a couple new reasons to own silver that a lot of mainstream investors probably aren't aware of…

Gold Breakout vs. Corporate Bonds / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Since the financial crisis in 2008, it is undeniable that precious metals have been the best performer. One would assume that market participants have been piling into Precious Metals. Certainly some money has moved into the sector, smartly anticipating the continuance of a major bull market and looming severe inflation in the next several years. Yet, most funds have moved into fixed income (corporate bonds and treasuries) as the chart shows.

Rising Gold Price Under Pinned by Large Funds Hedging Strategies / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleManaging Director Tan Khandaker, of New York-based Khandaker Morgan, thinks gold hedging strategies by large funds will underpin a rising gold price at least for the next few years and perhaps beyond. Tan also sees junior gold companies as the best way to leverage rising gold prices. Khandaker Morgan has built an index of junior miners with near-term catalysts for growth, and it's up about 15% since March. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Tan presents some of his favorite names from his exclusive index.

How Second Rate Silver Brings First Rate Returns / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Silver has dominated the commodity and precious metals explosion through 2009 and 2010 with returns that meet and exceed any other precious metal.  However, why is silver still a top investment?  For two very important reasons: its volatile supply and its stance as gold's little brother.

Will 'Megatons To Megawatts' Solve The Uranium Supply Pinch ? / Commodities / Uranium

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMEGATONS TO MEGAWATTS
World uranium supply deficit, currently running at about 12 500 to 15 000 tons (2010 mine and supply forecasts relative to demand forecasts), or about 20 percent, is covered from sources especially including stocks held by mining companies, power plant operators and builders. This massive deficit is also partly covered, perhaps by 4 000 tons of uranium equivalent per year, with recycled and diluted highly radioactive wastes including plutonium that are converted to so-called MOX fuel (Mixed OXide), almost exclusively in France and the UK.

Gold Tight Supply to Complement Robust Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Mike_Stall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an earlier article, we have established a robust outlook for precious metals’ demand in the long term. With the outlook on demand remaining upbeat, an analysis of the supply side will complete a fundamental study of the metals space. Generally, oversupply kills any optimism that strong demand creates. What is of more importance to investors is the demand supply gap rather than demand alone, as this is the prime determinant of long term prices.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile gold fell marginally yesterday (down 30 cents) on dollar strength, silver rose by over 1% (by 28 cents to $23.81/oz) after a senior CFTC Commissioner alleged that major silver market participants were involved in manipulation and suppressing the silver price.

Surging Corn Prices Making Hay for Commodities Producers / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins, writes: Corn prices have surged more than 70% since May and could rise even higher in coming weeks. Prices will remain elevated for at least the next year, perhaps even testing their 2008 record high of $7.65 a bushel. That will likely mean higher food prices across the board for at least the next year.

Money Morning predicted in May that after falling below $3.50 per bushel in March, corn prices would surge higher than $6 by the end of the year. That forecast has proven prescient, as corn rose to a two-year high earlier this month.

How Far Will Silver Fall? That Could Depend on the Stock Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina is the world’s largest producer of gold, but it has plenty of other precious metals and rare minerals as well. Some in the world are already worried about so much power concentrated in one place.

A Bloomberg Report this week stated that silver exports from China, one of the world's largest, may drop about 40 percent this year as domestic demand from industry and investors climbs. China is the third-largest producer after Peru and Mexico. It is expected that reduced exports will boost prices. Industrial applications for silver, including electrical conductors and batteries, represent about half global demand. Silver has rallied 44 percent this year, outperforming gold and copper.

Gold in a Low-Inflation Environment, Part II / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"There is too little money in the economy."    – Bank of England governor Mervyn King, 19 October 2010

SO the FEDERAL RESERVE is dead-set on creating inflation, and it's plain to see why.

Household debt in the US now stands so large, paying it down to 2001 levels – as a proportion of income – would require a drop in consumer spending of $2.7 trillion, some 18% of this year's gross domestic product. Deleveraging to 1990 levels of gearing (again, a then-record at the time) would cost US households $3.5 trillion, well over a quarter of their 2010 incomes.
