Gold Healthy Consolidation Following US Interest Rate Cut / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was up $2.20 to $1003 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday while silver was down 30 cents to $19.89 per ounce. In illiquid electronic trading after the Federal Reserve cut interest rates by 75 basis points, very counter intuitively gold fell in value by nearly 2%. With gold already up by more than 19% so far this year (some 10 weeks), consolidation is healthy and to be expected.

Agricultural Commodities Correction Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Corrections are a friend of investors. Same is true for professional traders. Traders on Main Street enjoy them less. Learn to take advantage of them, rather than be buffeted by them. Investors should be anticipating any possible correction in their favorite industries in order to make timely purchases. Currently, for example, the Agri-Food sector may be developing one of the first good corrections in some time. Cash prices for many Agri-Food commodities have retreated.

Uranium Stocks Bearish Trend With Potential for Bottom Formation / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

Another downer of a day for the uranium stocks but looking at the chart it looks more like the start of a reversal activity than a continuation of a bear. Yes, the Index did close lower but the daily action stayed within the confines of yesterday's activity. A real down day would be a close below yesterday's low. Anyway, the Merv's Daily Uranium I ndex closed lower by 0.051 points or 1.67%. There were 20 winners, 25 losers and 5 unchanged.

Gold to Sell off to $940 on US Interest Rate Cut Decision / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBig day for gold and the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) because just about everyone believes that the Fed will cut rates 75 to 100 bps, which will crush the dollar and trigger another upleg in gold. My technical work argues differently -- that the GLD has peak and that "good news" will be sold at the top of the Jan-Mar channel, and the GLD will traverse towards the lower portion of the channel, now in the vicinity of 94.00.

Gold Recovers and Stocks Bounce Ahead of US Interest Rate Cut / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES ticked higher vs. both the Dollar and Euros in London on Tuesday, gaining more than 1.3% from an overnight dip against each currency as global stock markets bounced after Monday's shock losses.

By lunchtime in London – where the AM Gold Fix was set nearly $20 below Monday's record of $1,023.50 per ounce – the MSCI World Index stood 0.9% higher to show its first gain since Wednesday last week.

Gold Strong as Safehaven in the Face of Worst Financial Crisis since 1987 Crash / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was up $2.10 to $1000.80 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday while silver was down 25 cents to $20.36 per ounce. Gold surged on the open in Asia yesterday and reached a new record high ($1030.80 per ounce). Subsequently, with U.S. stock markets miraculously recovering, gold succumbed to profit taking and ended the day only slightly higher.

UltraShort Crude Oil & Gas ETF on the Move / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Mike_Paulenoff

As of this moment, the Jan-Feb lows at 34.69 and 35.52 represent a potentially major double-bottom in the DUG that has the power to thrust prices towards the 46.00-47.00 resistance (breakout zone). Initial resistance hovers along the declining 200 DMA, now at 43.33. Any weakness from current levels must hold 40.00 to preserve today's near-term upside breakout at 41.20/50.

Gold Jumps 3% as Panic Selling Hits Banking Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

PHYSICAL GOLD PRICES leapt more than 3% at the start of world trade on Monday – and the US Dollar and Asian stock markets sank – on news that the Federal Reserve will today start lending directly to New York investment banks to "bolster market liquidity and promote orderly market functioning."

The Gold Market then gave back half of its early gains to $1,015 per ounce, while European equities lost more than 3% from Friday's close.

Gold $1000 and Bullish, Silver Boxed in for a Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWOW! $1000 per oz. Where to from here? I still remember when the DOW first breached its 1000 mark. It was 10 years before it went anywhere after that. I don't see the same for gold, but who knows?

GOLD : LONG TERM
Well, it hasn't quite hit my long term P&F projection of $1020 but it got awfully close. Maybe this week. The next projection would then be $1125. The very long term $1600 projection is getting closer and closer.

Crude Oil Bull Market Uncovers Two New Investment Opportunities / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are few countries or regions of the world that are seeing real growth in oil production. The simple fact is that the large onshore fields that have met the world's oil demand for decades are now mature and already seeing declining production.

To offset declines from these easy-to-produce oil and gas fields, producers will increasingly target smaller, more-complex fields, as well as fields that are harder and more expensive to reach.

A Cheaper Dollar to Take Dollar Gold Prices Much Higher? / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

As with so many crises in history, the consequences of certain situations are not foreseen, or if they had been foreseen were downplayed to either inaction, or insufficient action. So it has been with the "sub-prime" crisis that is now a full blown liquidity crisis that is spreading like a gangrene into other aspects of the credit market. You may still wonder why this crisis is causing such a threat to the entire financial system so as to cause the Fed to 'throw money from helicopters'? The problem is essentially due to the functioning of collateral.

Crude Oil Weakness Ahead Means Rally for Macroshares Oil Inverted / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Mike_Paulenoff

At the very least, my near-term work in the MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable Shares (AMEX: DCR) is warning me that the Jan-Mar decline from near 15.00 to 8.00 is complete, and that a recovery rally period has started that should carry to a minimum of 10.00/30. Only a resumption of weakness that violates 8.00 will invalidate my current outlook, which will imply that crude oil prices are roaring again.

Gold Breached $1000 on Safe Haven Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

As expected, gold reached the greatly anticipated and important psychological mark of $1000 per ounce in the futures market yesterday. Profit taking subsequently saw it sell off slightly. Gold was up $13.10 to $992.30 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday and silver was up 39 cents to $20.34 per ounce. In Asian and early European trading gold consolidated and remained in a range between $993 and $1000. The London AM Gold Fix at 1030 GMT this morning was at $997.00, £491.617 and €641.158 (from $975.75, £483.26 and €630.90 yesterday).

Silver Bull Market Moving In Parabolic Arc / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAbout a week ago in the last Silver Market update we called a SHORT-TERM top in gold and silver, and we got one. As you may recall the timeframe for the reaction was until about the 17th. Although we have seen a reaction it has thus far been modest, and now, after the extraordinary action and events of the past couple of days, it MAY be over. In any event, with the time window for the reaction soon to close, and downside now considered to be limited, the risk is thought to be that of missing out on the next upleg, which promises to be even bigger than the last one.

Gold Uptrend Accelerating into Spectacular Vertical Asset! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAbout a week ago we called a short-term top in gold and silver, and although we got one, the subsequent reaction has turned out to be very muted. Meanwhile, oil has powered relentlessly higher and the dollar has continued to crumble as the Fed's increasingly desperate and frequent measures to arrest or at least postpone the gathering financial maelstrom are seen to be impotent.
