Agri-Foods Long-term Opportunities Amidst Hedge Funds Deleveraging / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite ravages brought on by joyful liquidation of hedge fund industry, Agri-Food prices continue to show superior relative performance when compared to equities. That conclusion is readily apparent from this week's first graph. In it are plotted our Agri-Food price index and the S&P 500. As ignorance of complexity of commodities is widespread among investment community and in particular the business media, investors need to make an effort to be better informed. Commodities are both not a homogeneous asset class and an incredible investment opportunity.

Gold Trades Sideways Amidst Continuing Bearish Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHaving been away last week didn't seem to have made much difference. Gold is just about where it was when last I reviewed it here two weeks ago. The best that can be said is that it is building strength while moving in a basic lateral direction.

GOLD : LONG TERM - Since I last showed the long term P&F chart of gold in my 2008-10-17 commentary it had made a move to lower levels and then moved in a sideways path. It has formed a strong resistance at the $765 level so a move to $780 would be an upside break. It might also be a reversal to the bull as the down trend line is very close to that point.

Monetary Reform: Gold And Bills Of Exchange / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAddress before the Civil Society Institute at Santa Clara University, November 3rd 2008 - The Great Depression of the 1930's was not due to the 'contractionist propensities' of the gold standard as alleged by John M. Keynes. Nor was it due to fractional reserve banking as alleged by Murray Rothbard. Rather, it was due to the government's sabotaging the clearing system of the international gold standard, the bill market.

Bob Moriarty: Laying Out a Feast for Stock Bears and Gold Bugs / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, 321gold.com founder Bob Moriarty provides abundant food for thought about the continuing U.S. financial debacle. Unlike many other observers, he foresees a short-term rally in the stock market but paints a bleak longer-term picture. He expects the ship of state to sink like the Titanic, with precious metals holdings and other “things” the only safety nets on board. Not one to whitewash his opinions, Bob seems to be right more often than not but also freely admits it when he makes mistakes. As he puts it, “When my theories don't match the facts, I revise my theories.” We conducted the interview over a week ago and all of his predictions seem to be coming true. So far.

Greenspan and the Gold Standard: Thinking Out Loud / Commodities / Gold & Silver

I wish some Congressman would have had the courage to ask Greenspan why he abandoned his principles he so eloquently (and correctly) wrote about in 1966 before becoming a government sell out like the rest of them (rather than Grandstanding, but nothing new with that).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor years, the Canadian operator of a huge Venezuelan gold project known as Las Cristinas has been seeking an environmental permit to start digging. Well, Crystallex International Corporation can stop waiting--the mine is being nationalized as part of dictator Hugo Chavez's long-running program of socialist takeovers. “This mine will be seized and managed by a state administration” with help from the Russians, said Mining Minister Rodolfo Sanz.

Gold Set to Break Lower / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The streetTRACKS Gold ETF (NYSE: GLD) pattern offers an inverted view of the PowerShares DB Gold Double Short ETN (AMEX: DZZ) and shows the bearish coil pattern at the low end of the Sept-Oct downmove, which should resolve to the downside after the conclusion of the sideways pattern. I am establishing an initial model portfolio position this morning in case the coil is complete here, and will add to the short (DZZ) position if gold (GLD) climbs towards the 74.00 area and 36.80 in the DZZ.

Commodities Supply Destruction / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: HRA_Advisory

[ Editor's note : The following article was sent to subscribers in September. The intent was to remind readers what to look for in the various metals sectors in terms of supply going forward. Balance will return to the market not just from eventual demand increases but also (and perhaps mainly) from supply cut backs. We chose zinc to focus on as it has the largest percentage of uneconomic operations at current prices. For reasons we go into in the article, we expect a quicker supply response then in past cycles.

Is Gold Decoupling from Crashing Stock and Commodity Markets? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold continues to consolidate between $700/oz and $760/oz and looks set to rechallenge $800/oz in the coming days as safe haven buying reemerges on continuing concerns regarding the global financial system and economy.

Gold was down marginally yesterday (some 1%). It surged after the Bank of England's massive interest rate cut of 150 bps but more counterintuitive trading was seen as gold was aggressively sold by US investment banks on the COMEX who did not appear to want to see gold surging above $760/oz and aggressively defended this position.

Gold Retraces Following Post Election Profit Taking / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold gave up some of the Election Day gains yesterday on profit taking due to sharply lower oil (WTI $Dec down $5.23 to $65.30) and commodity prices ( the CRB Commodities Index fell 10.25 to 267.97) on fears of significant demand destruction due to a protracted global recession. Silver was the exception and was more robust and continued to rise after the previous day's sharp gains.

Brien Lundin: Is Gold Holding a Wild Card? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs difficult as it may be for precious metals investors to sit on their hands, that may be the best “action” for surviving this hazardous transition from deflationary to inflationary times. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Gold Newsletter Editor Brien Lundin explains why it is absolutely inevitable that inflation will trigger a rise in gold and hints that a December “surprise” could end the waiting game. While his advice is to let this round of deleveraging and deflation end before making any serious plays, he names a few bargains that stand out even in a downturn.

President Obama Inherits Great Challenge akin to Carter and Roosevelt / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold and silver both surged some 4% yesterday from oversold levels as the dollar weakened and oil surged. We said some weeks ago that the recent sell off in precious metals was likely to end around election day and believe that this has indeed happened and that gold will resume its secular bull market in the coming weeks. Important elections often see markets reverse course and witness trend reversals and this is one of the most momentous election victories in US history.

Crude Oil Turns Bullish / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let's notice the rounded bottom in the U.S. Oil Fund ETF (AMEX: USO), carved out since Oct 21, and though it represents a relatively minor base pattern, it should propel the USO into the 60.00-62.00 area in the upcoming days. Only a sudden downside reversal and plunge beneath 52.00 will wreck the developing pattern.
