Uranium Stocks Bearish Chart Signals / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

Boy, there are going to be some good bargains after all this is over, but it's not all over yet. Another bad day at the markets. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index closed lower by 0.158 points or 4.17%. It just feels like things are getting worse every day. There were only 3 stocks that closed higher today while 44 (out of 50) closed lower. There were 3 unchanged. As for the biggies, they all have seen better days. Cameco lost 4.2%, Denison lost 4.0%, Paladin lost 6.2%, UEX lost 4.7% and Uranium One lost 4.0%. The best performer of those three winners was Western Uranium with a 9.4% gain (not bad for a crummy day) while the worst performer was Alberta Star with a loss of 14.7%.

Indians Selling Gold To Buy Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMineweb.com reported today (January 16, 2008) that Indians are selling gold to buy their country's stocks, allegedly because gold is "so expensive" and, in their view, therefore has little upside. On the other hand, they think that Indian penny stocks allow them to make quick 100 percent profits in the span of only one or two months.

Indian investors are about to learn a lesson in bubble psychology.

Gold Targeting Decline Towards $850 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The streetTRACKS Gold ETF (AMEX: GLD) looked like it was going to rocket this morning in a flight to quality type of trade. However, a closer look at the near term chart structure argues just the opposite-- that the GLD is very tired, and is in the midst of an initial correction of its near-vertical advance off of the Dec. breakout point just above 78.00.

Platinum – The Most Precious and Overlooked Precious Metal / Commodities / Platinum

By: Mark_OByrne


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy Platinum Remains a Strong Buy

Introduction - Gold and Silver Investments Limited continue to be bullish on precious metals and bullish on platinum. Platinum has recently hit new record highs at $1590 per ounce along with gold. Even though platinum has surpassed its 1980 high of $1,070 per ounce in nominal terms, it is still only some half the price of its inflation-adjusted high of $2,800 per ounce. We believe this high will be reached in the next 5 to 8 years in this new supply/ demand driven secular bull market in platinum.

Indian Surge in Gold Demand due to the 'Wealth Effect' / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold continued to sell off yesterday and was down $19.70 to $880.90 per ounce at the close in New York yesterday and silver was down 42 cents to $15.78 per ounce. Normally sell offs are quite sharp and last some 2 to 4 days and therefore some follow through selling may be witnessed. However, the strong fundamentals should result in gold being well supported at previous resistance at $850.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: They say the highway to hell is paved with good intentions. I think the same can be said for the road to $200-a-barrel oil. And the car on that road will be the Nano, the new ultra-cheap vehicle from India's Tata Motors.

See, the Nano will be sold for less than $2,500, which suddenly puts car ownership within reach for a huge slice of India's population.

Silver Elliott Wave Puzzle Could Wipe Out Entire Bull Market Gain / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, it is not a puzzle really but in the search for a silver exit strategy we occasionally come across rocks in the road which make us wonder "Will this or that happen?"

I always say that fundamental and technical analysis are complementary and not opposing tools in the search for silver and gold profits. The fundamentals point you in the general long term direction but technical analysis helps negotiate the bends and dips on the road.

Commodities Secular Bull Continues Into 2008 - Many More Years to Run! / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rebirth of the secular bull market of commodities beginning in 2000 can be mainly contributed, first to the cresting and eventual decline of the U.S. dollar and second, the mounting economic expansion of China and India. Combined, these two forces have propelled raw material prices into a long-term uptrend.

The current extended rise in natural resources is best measured against a broad equity market. In Chart 1, the Commodity Research Bureau Index (CRB) and the S&P 500 are compared for performance over the past 12 years. During most of the 1980s and all of the 1990s, paper-based equities (S&P 500) greatly outperformed raw materials (CRB).

Gold Euphoria Points to an Imminent Correction / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Gold's explosive start of year move has been enjoyed by all. Has it been over enjoyed? Fundamentals of the U.S. dollar did not suddenly get worse on the first day of the year.

Current euphoria in the Gold market may have been over done. One way of assessing that possibility is to compare the Gold price of the dollar to what is happening to the value of the dollar in other national monies. In the chart below, the red line is the Gold price of the U.S. dollar. It is how much Gold is required to purchase a single dollar, and is measured in ounces. The calculation is 1 divided by the dollar price of Gold. When that red line is falling, the dollar price of Gold is rising. When rising, dollar price of Gold is falling.

Gold Over-extended But Extremely Strong Suggesting Mild Corrections / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is not the time to get bogged down with minor details, and thus risk losing sight of the big picture, which is that gold is now in a powerful uptrend that has a lot further to run. For this reason we will only look at long-term 8-year charts in this update.

On the 'normal' 8-year chart in dollars, gold is clearly well on its way, and to some it may look overextended already, after its strong advance of recent weeks, but there are 2 important factors that we will consider that are not on this chart, which indicate that it is likely to ascend to much higher levels before this uptrend is over.
