Gold Being Driven to New Highs by Obama Pork Stimulus Plan / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week the U.S. Congress did us all a favor. $Gold rose by about $40 due to their efforts. What did they do? Well, the U.S. Congress voted to risk another depression by including a “Buy American” clause in what is mistakenly referred to as an economic stimulus plan. That clause bars the purchase of imported iron and steel. If the U.S. Senate persists in the “Buy American” requirements, and also bars the purchase of manufactured goods, in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2008 that risk of a depression will rise further. If ultimately signed into law, the Obama Depression looks like a betting man's risk.

By: Adrian_Ash

Gold Consolidates as January Portends for Bearish Year for Stock Markets / Commodities / Investing 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold continues to consolidate near recent highs despite profit taking falls. It remains near record highs in British pounds, Euros (03-Feb-09 London AM Fix: $902.00, £636.02, €702.93 ) and many other currencies internationally as fiat currencies internationally come under pressure due to the unprecedented zero percent interest rates, quantitative easing, bailouts and stimulus packages.

Natural Gas ETF UNG Significant Low? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bull trap (failed upside breakout) above 19.00 on Friday was followed by a stair-step decline that pressed the US Natural Gas Fund ETF (UNG) to a new all-time low this morning at 17.76, which from my technical perspective either represents the conclusion of the entire downleg from the 1/06 recovery high at 25.83 -- ahead of the start of a powerful rally period -- OR initiation of a new downleg that will press the UNG towards 15.00.

The Gold Silver Ratio Analysis Update / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow has the Gold Silver Ratio (GSR) been doing recently and how does this stand up against the price action of gold and silver over the past years?

Now I don't personally use this ratio to trade in and out of silver. Some people swear by it and use it as a useful tool to swap between silver and gold when one becomes undervalued relative to the other. Where I come from in Britain with the high sales tax and spreads on silver, such a pursuit is not very profitable but I know it is for others.

Will the Gold Uptrend Continue? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Kingsley_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo weeks ago, I opined that Gold may be in a position to move higher . Since that time, gold has indeed broken out (see chart below) and looks set to continue climbing-at least for the time being. Current market conditions have helped the commodity. As earning continue to disappoint and the economy shrink, traders have flocked to the precious metal.

“Strong investor buying on Monday pushed the price of gold above $900 a troy ounce, hitting a 3½-month high in dollar terms and posting all-time highs in euro and sterling, in a stark sign of money seeking refuge from equities and bond markets.

GOLD : LONG TERM - Since turning long term bullish in November the long term Point and Figure (P&F) chart has stayed on the bull side and continues its climb. The initial projection to the $930 level was reached this past week. What next? Well, going back a few years I still have that $1600 projection which has not yet been met.

Rising Commodities, Falling Stock Markets & Risk Reward Ratio / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTrading Risk/Reward
The past few months have been absolutely crazy in the financial markets. Financial advisors and banks are taking a beating from both the market condition and clients as individuals around the world are losing 30+ of their investments. We have seen oil prices drop over $110 per barrel from the high (73% decline), and the US dollar tumbled down to 71 and rebounded to 88 (23% gain) all in the mater of months.

Copper, Zinc, Nickel, Lead and Aluminum Base Metals Technicals / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot too long ago base metals were the hottest of commodities. In their bull markets the prices of these industrial-use metals had soared to lofty heights to reflect the speculative risk premiums brought on by greatly imbalanced markets. Copper, zinc, nickel, lead, and aluminum achieved staggering trough-to-peak gains of 574%, 523%, 1124%, 829%, and 151%!

A mixture of robust infrastructure growth and hoarding led to demand far outpacing supply. Global stockpiles were being drained to alarmingly-low levels, the world's smelters and refineries were operating at full capacity, and the mining companies couldn't bring their metals to market fast enough.

Gold Bullion and ETF Investment Demand Stampede / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn December 17th 2008 the combined gold holdings of the World Gold Council gold Exchange Traded Funds and Barclays Gold Trust stood at 985.59 tonnes.   By the 16th January 2009 this had risen to 1009.92.   By 30th January early in London time they had grown to 1079.83 a growth of almost 70 tonnes in two weeks.   To give one perspective, the Central Bank Gold Agreement signatories [European central banks only] sold only 3.5 tonnes in the last two weeks.  There are many other gold bullion-holding funds in the developed world from Canada to Switzerland that are not included in this total.   If they were the total would be approaching 1200+ tonnes.   Clearly we are seeing a stampede of institutional fund management into gold at present!

Gold New Target of $980 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Donald_W_Dony

In the January 25 report titled "The return of commodities", I indicated that gold is the leader among the commodity groups and that the target for this metal was $925 in February. As gold has already reached this first target earlier than expected, the new target has been raised to $980. Models continue to suggest that the US Dollar Index will see lower price levels in February and March. This action should move gold upward toward its new higher target. Equally as important to note is that gold leads the other commodity groups. Agriculture, oil and base metal are anticipated to follow gold's lead in the months to come.

Gold and U.S. Dollar Rise in Tandem on Global Risk Aversion / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE of wholesale gold bullion leapt 2.2% at the start of London dealing on Friday, driven higher by strong institutional buying even as the US Dollar rose on the currency market.

New US data showed the world's largest single economy contracting by 3.8% on an annualized basis at the end of 2008 – better than the 5.4% contraction forecast by private-sector economists, but still a sharp acceleration from the summer's 0.5% rate and the worst pace since 1982.

"A STRONGER DOLLAR typically weighs on gold," according to Reuters. But that's not what's been happening so far in 2009. Not by a long stretch.

Global Food Prices are Rising Fast / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Eric_deCarbonnel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs much as I hate to rain on the deflation parade, I must point out that food inflation is increasing worldwide. It seems that food prices are unaware that they should be falling, because they are instead rising fast all around the world.

For example in India, after more than two months of steady decline, inflation has risen for the second week in a row due to a spike in food prices. The Economic Times reports that Indian inflation touches 5.64 pc with no respite as prices rise .

Silver- It's the Pits / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: David_Morgan

Throughout my association in the mining industry I have heard almost every story you can imagine. For instance, there is more gold in seawater than can be measured and some company is supposed to have some super technology that can extract it profitably.

Another one that pops up is, “Our gold does not assay by normal methods but believe me we have a lot of it and our super extraction process will make us all rich.”

Gold GLD Unfinished on the Upside / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My pattern work is "warning" me that the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) has unfinished business on the upside -- into new high ground above 90.19 (target 92.00). This morning's pullback low at 86.27 has the right look of the completion of a correction off of the high, and this morning's upside pivot so far suggests strongly that a new upleg has started. The GLD must hurdle and sustain above 88.90 to confirm that a run at 92.00 is in progress.
