Gold Rallies Following Sharp Drop in South African Gold Production / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

After falling sharply last week, gold rallied yesterday on the back of a weaker dollar, higher oil (Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - JAN09 is up more than 6% yesterday after falling an incredible 25% last week) and commodity prices and the Obama fiscal stimulus package.

Gold and the Last Contango in Washington? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere is an update on the backwardation in gold that started on December 2. It continued and worsened on December 3, 4, and 5. So far this is the most serious signal of the economic crisis: the world is rushing headlong into a Great Depression, possibly worse than that of the 1930's. Please remember the following analogy: the serial devaluation of currencies starting with that of the British pound in 1931 meant a drastic drop in the velocity of gold circulation.

Gold Backwardation Crisis: Seperating Facts from Fiction / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn important piece of academic research was published last week [ Dec. 5, 2008 ] by Professor Antal Fekete, titled, Red Alert: Gold Backwardation!!! In this article, Professor Fekete reasoned that Dec. 2, 2008 was a landmark date in the saga of the collapsing international monetary system;

“on December 2 nd , at the Comex in New York , December gold futures (last delivery: December 31) were quoted at 1.98% discount to spot, while February gold futures (last delivery: February 27, 2009 ) were quoted at 0.14% discount to spot. (All percentages annualized.) The condition got worse on December 3 rd , when the corresponding figures were 2% and 0.29%. This means that the gold basis has turned negative, and the condition of backwardation persisted for at least 48 hours.”

End of U.S. Dollars False Rally to Drive Gold Sharply Higher / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps the greatest gift we all could receive in the coming season of year end holidays would be the final demise of the hedge fund industry. While that might not happen, we might have to settle for the end of the U.S. dollar's false rally. Before going into that though, one question. If these funds are hedged, how come they have been losing so much money?

Measuring The Likely Strength Of This Gold Stocks Impulse Wave / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs promised Friday, here we are with a look at the Amex Gold Bugs Index (HUI) in an effort to gauge the likely strength of the anticipated impulse into the first quarter of next year. And as you will see below this move could get quite impulsive if Bollinger Band (BB) widths begin to expand during the move. Certainly such thinking would not be a stretch considering Friday's 45 point move higher in the HUI, however we are not making any assumptions in this regard as option expiries often cause violet moves if prices are either too far above or below equilibrium thresholds. So you see the true test of how strong the present impulse will be is likely better judged by what happens this week, along with other considerations which will be dealt with below.

Crude Oil Forecast 2009- Time to Buy? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo one could have imagined a little over 4 months ago with crude oil trading at $147, that crude oil would have crashed by 70% and be threatening to break below $40 so soon. Therefore this analysis seeks to to evaluate the prospects for crude oils future trend over the next 12months in determining whether crude oil today is a good buy or not.

Backwardization Of Gold And The Upwardization Of Gold And Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSystemic crises are caused by the inability of systems to respond to stress. When systems can no longer adequately respond, systemic collapse ensues. We are currently witness to the end of a system of paper money based on credit and debt, a system now in the final stages of collapse.

Gold Bullish Breakout Takes a Bearish Knock / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOkay. So maybe we're not yet in a roaring new bull market. The next level to watch would be the $700 level, if it gets that low.

GOLD LONG TERM - It's instructive to every once in a while take a look at a long term chart to see where we came from and maybe get a better idea as to where we might be going. I have two long term charts (other than P&F) that I usually show. This is my normal chart, one that I use in my weekly analysis. The other one differs in that it is more of a very long term chart and includes longer term indicators and moving averages.

Gold Red Alert- Gold Price Backwardation first time in History! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDecember 2, 2008, was a landmark in the saga of the collapsing international monetary system, yet it did not deserve to be reported in the press: gold went to backwardation for the first time ever in history. The facts are as follows: on December 2nd, at the Comex in New York, December gold futures (last delivery: December 31) were quoted at 1.98% discount to spot, while February gold futures (last delivery: February 27, 2009) were quoted at 0.14% discount to spot. (All percentages annualized.) The condition got worse on December 3rd, when the corresponding figures were 2% and 0.29%. This means that the gold basis has turned negative, and the condition of backwardation persisted for at least 48 hours. I am writing this in the wee hours of December 4th, when trading of gold futures has not yet started in New York.

Central Banks Gold Reserve Actions Key to Gold Price Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom 1980 right through to 1999, the gold market had the possibility of enormous central bank gold sales hanging over the gold market.   Central banks did nothing to remove this impression but led the market to believe that it was likely.   Their purpose was to ensure gold did not challenge the paper money markets.   In 1971, President Nixon had cut the link between gold and money but removed the ability of U.S. $ holders to change their dollars into gold.   This left the $ and all other currencies without any backing except the promise from central banks to change paper dollars into paper dollars.   This would not have worked nearly so well had the U.S. not had the power to ensure that the oil market was bound to use only U.S. dollars as payment for oil.

Real Interest Rates and the Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's been a tough year for gold investors. Instead of soaring during the great fear and uncertainty of the global financial panic as most gold investors expected, gold got caught up in the selling. Thus it is down 7.3% year-to-date. This is far-better performance than virtually everything else, especially the S&P 500's 40.7% YTD loss. Nevertheless, the lack of a flight to gold in such dire conditions remains disappointing.

Gold Slumps on Half a Million U.S. Job Losses / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

More than half-a-million Americans lost their jobs last month, reported the Bureau of Labor Studies. Wall Street analysts had been expecting 325,000 job losses.
