US Unemployment Report Saves Gold ...but for how long? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Chip_Hanlon

Friday morning's huge surge in jobless numbers has knocked the dollar, thus causing gold to pop up nearly $20 as I write this near the open. The conclusion's simple enough: such economic weakness will prevent the Fed from raising rates anytime soon (Fed funds futures now suggest only a 2% chance the Fed will raise rates by year-end, down from 40% odds just one month ago).

Gold Mining Stocks Investing Challenges / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith seven consecutive years of rising gold prices, the gold mining industry has had ample reason to boost output. The demand for gold has grown and will continue to grow and legendary profits can be won for shareholders. But in provocative fashion not only have the gold miners been unsuccessful in growing supply, global mined gold production is down since the beginning of the bull.

In last week's essay I revisited gold's strategic fundamentals with particular focus on economics, drilling down on global gold production and reserves trends. And interestingly global gold production is down 4% since 2001. In a secular bull market this is not a logical supplier response to an economic imbalance.

Bullish Pattern Developing for Natural Gas ETF / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The U.S. Natural Gas ETF (AMEX: UNG) has come off its recovery high this morning at 34.54. The pattern carved out from yesterday's new corrective low at 32.30 is very constructive and argues for still more strength. The anticipated next upleg should hurdle key near-term resistance at 34.50/55 on the way to 36.50.

Commodities Correcting from Extreme Overbought State is Healthy / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Ty_Andros

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's an interesting time to be in the financial markets. The return of the “Crack up Boom” series is a result of the amazing amount of MONEY and CREDIT creation that is going to be required to RECAPITALIZE and re-inflate the G7 economies. Money and Credit creation are the fuel and lifeblood of the G7 economies. Misstated inflation is reported as GROWTH; as the OVER-the-COUNTER debacle unfolds and vaporizes the balance sheets of the G7 financial and banking systems rendering many of the biggest players INSOLVENT. Their business models and income flows in tatters as their obligations just keep on piling up. But the WOLF wave continues its march throughout the G7 as incomes collapse under higher costs and collapsing business conditions. Combine that with a US election and you get a recipe for paralysis on the part of irresponsible PUBLIC SERVANTS.

Junior Mining Investing, Gold Stocks Divergence Opportunity / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Dudley_Baker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFew investors can stand up to the fortitude of an investor in the junior mining sector. Basically, if you did not sell everything in May 2006, then your portfolio is probably under water. The drawn downs in the junior's has been beyond belief. Most of the shares are down 50% or more from the May 2006 highs and many are off 70%, 80% and even 90%.

Are investors insane to stay with these ‘investments' or should we be looking elsewhere?

That is not to say these magnificent indices will not go higher but I am talking about the easy pickings and leverage.”

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was flat in New York yesterday despite the increasingly bullish macro environment. Gold closed at $803.40 down $1.20 and silver closed at $12.92 down 12 cents.

Gold rose in early trading in London but has subsequently given up some of the gains as the dollar has rallied again (1.4456 to the EUR).

The Real Big Storm About to Hit the United States is Cantarell / Commodities / Crude Oil

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Broderick writes: The oil industry along the Louisiana coast got off lightly from Hurricane Gustav. While 1.3 million barrels of oil and seven billion cubic feet of natural gas per day stopped pumping temporarily, most of the oil infrastructure escaped harm. And oil prices plummeted on that good news.

However, there's a much worse problem threatening oil production around the Gulf of Mexico ...

Gold Stocks Developing a Double Bottom Pattern / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTumultuous market conditions have taken their toll on the commodity sector and caused a change in the Elliott Wave count of the HUI as mentioned in the prior Internet update. The main crux of the problem has been leveraged individuals and funds that were forced to liquidate positions, thereby triggering stops all the way down causing increased liquidation. It is probably a safe bet that a significant portion of the tax-loss selling for 2008 has already occurred, but as analysis presented below suggests, trading opportunities exist over the next 4-6 months before the HUI completes the present consolidation pattern. I stress that 4-6 months is the minimum time frame for the HUI correction to complete, but it could easily extend until May-July 2009 (depending upon how long the consolidation pattern in the USD takes as mentioned in the last Internet update).

Cooling Global Economy Ensures Commodity Correction to Continue / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent rise of the U.S. dollar has triggered the peak in the commodity market and likely halted any further advances for this index during the 2006-2010 market cycle. As energy and precious metals are normally the last sectors to crest during a market cycle, their current weakness signals the start of a broader correction.

Gold Undergoing New Bearish Consolidation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe near-term pattern and technical set-up earlier this morning in spot gold -- which corresponds to the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) for ETF traders -- pointed to an upside thrust to test key near-term resistance at $810.65 concurrent with a test of key near-term euro/$ resistance at 1.4450/80. While the euro did rally a touch above 1.4480, the rally did not sustain, which helped to thwart the rally attempt in spot gold, which failed to claw its way above $810.00.

China and India Demand to Fuel Agri-Foods Bull Market / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

If one listens to the popular business media, commodities are dead. When paper oil was trading at $147, the sky was the limit. Now, all is going down. Perhaps they are little more than trend followers? What we really need to know is if the world is awash in grains. Truth is, that view does not in any way describe the global situation. The world has entered an era, ten years or more remaining, when Agri-Food will be in short supply. Whether China grows at 11+% or 9% does not change the conclusion.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE of physical gold sank below yesterday's two-week low early in London on Wednesday, dropping to $790 before bouncing to $801 an ounce as Western stock markets fell sharply.

US Treasuries rose, pushing real yields after inflation almost 2% into the red on the 10-year bond, while the Euro slipped below $1.44 on the currency markets – a fresh six-month low.

Gold Slide Continues Despite Soaring Inflation and Unprecedented Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold fell in early trading in London on further falls in oil prices ($108.24 a barrel - Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - OCT08) and on the continuing rally in the dollar (reached 1.4386 to the Euro) but gold has recovered some of its early losses.

Concerns regarding the outlook for corporate profits internationally and for the health of the global economy is weighing on stock markets and should lead to safe haven demand for gold as it did in the first year of the credit crisis.
