GATA Gold Rally Targets $1000 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the next few weeks or months, analysts will likely refer to the latest rise in the gold price, which started today, as the GATA RALLY.

As some of you know, this Thursday, the Wall Street Journal will carry a full-page advertisement paid for by GATA. The headline of the article will read: “Anybody seen our gold?”

How To Invest During Economic Downturns: Commodities versus Stocks / Commodities / Learning to Invest

By: Mary_Rivas

In an article published yesterday (January 23, 2008) in the Financial Times , George Soros stated that a recession in the U.S. is now more or less inevitable. He noted that China , India and some of the oil-producing countries however are in a very strong countertrend. Soros went on to explain that “the current financial crisis is less likely to cause a global recession than a radical realignment of the global economy, with a relative decline of the U.S. and the rise of China and other countries in the developing world. “

Silver Market Supplies in Surplus? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

I want to address a recent publication which has raised concerns amongst silver investors. It is The Silver Book for 2008 published by the VM Group.

The main item I want to address is the statement in that document that the silver market was in surplus in 2007 by 6,141 tonnes or over 197 million ounces. That is a lot of silver; in fact it constitutes about 18% of their estimated mine and scrap supply for 2007. Does this seem a lot of silver to you? It certainly did to me!

Gold Boosted by South African Power Outages / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold was up $3.50 to $910.50 per ounce in trading in New York on Friday and silver was up 16 cents to $16.41 per ounce. Both surged again in the early hours of Asian trading overnight and gold rose as high as $921.35 and it remains near record highs in early European trading.

Gold was up 3.4% last week and silver was up nearly 2% and both are up some 10% year to date. In normal market conditions, correction and consolidation would be expected and likely. However, these are not normal market conditions – and that is putting it mildly.

Gold Technical's Suggest Downtrend is Looming / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite a 3.4% gain on the week one gets the impression that gold is ready to go lower. That's not what most analysts are saying. Who to trust? I always prefer the charts to tell me where gold is going not where it should go.

GOLD: LONG TERM
The long term continues in its bullish mode with some hints of weakness but no overriding concern. Gold continues to trade well above its long term moving average line and the line continues to slope upwards. The long term momentum indicator continues in its positive zone above its positive sloping trigger line but is showing some minor hint of weakness by not making a new high with the gold price. The volume indicator is also above its positive sloping trigger line but below its previous high and not confirming the gold move to new highs. The long term P&F chart continues to move higher with no hint of a reversal in the works. So, from the long term point of view the only rating that I can give this time period is a BULLISH rating.

Gold - You Can't Keep a Good Metal Down / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“The first resistance level in gold [is] at about $890, while … support [is] at about $861. The wide latitude … represents a range for traders. With additional rate cuts almost undoubtedly on the way, it's reasonable to see a more triangular correction in gold, if not new highs before the end of the quarter. That said, it's important to understand that even a larger degree triangle, as opposed to a deeper selloff, could still see gold trading to the $775-780 area in relatively short order. Those who've ridden this high should appropriately see themselves closer to the end of this move than the beginning.” ~ Precious Points: Let Them Eat Cake! January 18, 2008

Working Paper Synopsis: The Search for the Beta of Commodity Futures / Commodities / Learn to Trade

By: Mack_Frankfurter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn comparing modern finance with behavioral finance, Dr. George M. Frankfurter, Lloyd F. Collette Professor Emeritus Louisiana State University, and Dr. Elton G. McGoun, Professor of Finance Bucknell University, in their article “ Resistance is Futile: The Assimilation of Behavioral Finance, ” [1] make the following astute observation which can similarly be applied to our analysis of the various commodity asset pricing models we investigated: “What has happened is that we've used these assumptions for so long that we've forgotten that we've merely made assumptions, and we've come to believe that the world is necessarily this way.” Likewise, our working paper, “ Is Managed Futures an Asset Class? The Search for the Beta of Commodity Futures ,” suggests that the models we examined have inherent shortcomings when analyzing the commodity futures markets. This article summarizes that study which is available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1029243 .

Response to the Anti-Gold Gospel / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Anatole Kaletsky is the author of the most recent Anti-Gold Gospel ( www.gavekal.com , January 21, 2008.) He is an establishment journalist, Associate Editor (formerly Economics Editor) of The Times . He says that he instinctively dislikes gold because “historically gold has been a terrible investment and, even in the short term, gold has failed as a store of value”. I am satisfied to leave this statement to stand on its own, and wish Kaletsky good luck in seeking a better store of value in fiat currencies.

$150 Billion Stimulus Package Positive for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Volatile was the word this week in equity and currency markets across the world. The average investor -- whether institutional or individual -- does not like to feel uncertain. So we protect ourselves from it the best we can. The results were that global markets acted on the worst-possible scenario. At the beginning of the week there was recession with the potential to get worse. Then came the 0.75% cut in Fed Fund rates. Together with talk around the $150 billion tax breaks from the White House, this was expected to send the global economy back on the growth track -- even though it would be at the expense of the USD. But hope wasn't enough. But markets are not falling and have recovered to a large extent, so far. But investors are still jaundiced by the realities of the moves.

Price Structure Peaking for Gold Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My pattern, momentum and cycle work on the Market Vectors Gold ETF (AMEX: GDX) suggest strongly that the price structure is peaking and could roll over at just about any time in the upcoming two weeks. This is also due to my perception that the underlying fundamentals have turned less friendly towards the miners, gold "consumption," inflation, and the overall bull market in equities.

Silver - Not too Late to Hedge Against Dollar Stock Market Investment Losses / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike many silver and gold investors, my eyes were glued to the ticker tape this week wondering how silver and its derivative stocks would fare during this downturn in the global markets. To think that silver would be unaffected would be naïve but of course the question was in which way would it be affected? Would it go up, down or move in a channel?

Gold Surges to New All-time High as South Africa Suspends ALL Gold Mining / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES rose 1.3% overnight Friday, reaching new all-time highs above $923 per ounce as all gold-mining operations in South Africa – the world's No.2 gold producer – were shut down by a power shortage.

State-owned energy firm Eskom today told mining giants AngloGold Ashanti , GoldFields and Harmony that it can not guarantee current power supplies to their mines.

Gold Bull Trap Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My near and intermediate-term work is warning me that 3 session climbs from $850 to $911 (so far) in spot gold will turn out to be a trap (bull trap) and part of a near-term topping process just above $900, prior to another bout of corrective weakness that presses prices into the $800-$770 area in the weeks ahead. The upleg pattern off of the August 2007 low at $641.00 to the January 14th high at $914.00 exhibits the look of completion. In addition, the heretofore reliable 15-18 week cycle (low to low) is now in its 8th week.

Gold and Silver ETF's (GLD, SLV) Disparities With Gold Price Means Higher Risk / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Richard_J_Greene

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have heard from many investors inquiring if they should sell their gold stocks and just buy the gold and silver ETFs. The first thing they should understand is that doing so would prolong the time they must wait for gold and silver to reach their true market levels which are much higher. The gold and silver ETFs were created by such financial giants as JP Morgan and Barclay's Bank that also serve as custodians and sub-custodians. These are the very firms that have been involved in the process of short selling gold and silver in huge quantities. That they would be involved in creating the ETFs had to be considered as most unlikely unless they had nefarious purposes.

NYBOT Plans to Close Trading Floor - The End of an Era / Commodities / Financial Markets

“They're not just getting rich…they're getting even”--Trading Places [1983]

There's an electric tension in the air as our heroes, Louis Winthorpe III and Bill Ray Valentine, muscle their way through the crowd of traders lining the New York Board of Trade's (NYBoT) frozen concentrated orange juice (FCOJ) trading pit. The traders are nervous with the anticipation of what's to come, sweating from the heat generated by more than 100 tightly packed bodies. The clerks manning the phones surrounding the pit are on high alert.
