Gold Forecast 2008 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a December 2004 interview with the Wall Street Journal, I predicted $525 for gold's high in 2005. It hit that $525 level the following December. For 2006, once again in a Wall Street Journal interview, I predicted a "breakout year" for gold with a top price of $760. Its actual breakout high came earlier in the year than I had anticipated (in May) and a bit lower than I had predicted -- in the $730 range (intraday Comex). In January, 2007, when gold was trading in the $625 range, in a forecast published in a NewsGroup Market Update through our USAGOLD website, I made $715 my minimum upside target and suggested that gold could hit the $800 level, or go as high as $875 if tensions escalated in the Persian Gulf; or if the quid pro quo with China broke down; or if the new Congress proved as anti-market as advertised; or if we got some surprises. Gold hit $840 in November and is trading at the $810 level as this is written.

The Best and Worst Commodity Performers of 2007 and Outlook for 2008 / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: George_Kleinman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe S&P 500 began 2007 at 1,428. On Friday, Dec. 21, it closed at 1,498 for a respectable, if unexciting, 4.9 percent return for the year.

Were there better places to be over this past year? You bet.
When trading futures, we use leverage. In many cases, all that's required is a 5 percent margin deposit of a contract's value. Under this scenario, just a 5 percent raw price move results in a 100 percent return on the initial margin deposit.

Contracting Credit Cycle and Monetary Debasement During 2008 Equals Commodities Super Cycle / Commodities / Money Supply

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Need For Speed – Part Deux : The credit crunch continues to worsen , where very soon attempting to paper over all problems with more derivatives and bailouts will no longer work, and authorities will be compelled to increase currency (just another derivative) debasement rates to higher thresholds around the world. Correspondingly then, and as was the case in the early to mid-80's to stimulate the US economy, expect Money At Zero Maturity (MZM) growth rates to top 40-percent in coming days as authorities are forced to monetize increasing bank failures and facilitate ‘price stability'. The technical underpinnings associated with this condition can be viewed here in Figure 6 , where if history is a good guide, year-over-year growth should continue to accelerate higher in coming days.

Some investors continue to hope collapse of housing and financial sectors will suddenly be reversed. Market strategists have called how many bottoms in housing sector? Which U.S. financial giant will be next to sell out to a foreign investor? Bubbles, or market sectors, do not reinflate, or reemerge.

US Congress Passes Energy Bill That Boosts Ethanol Commitment / Commodities / Ethanol

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs it a giant leap forward toward America's energy independence or a grab bag for corporations and campaign contributions? Did Congress and the president cave in to big business, or did it stick big government's nose in yet again where it can only do harm?

In the final analysis, the energy bill passed this week in Washington probably comes down somewhere in between. Like every other government bill, it was more the result of compromise and negotiation than hard science. The solution reflects the balance of power more than a debate on the merits to society.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Bull Trap in Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“If the triangle is going to prove correct, the question becomes whether the e wave low is in place or is another small low to come. Either scenario would be bullish for gold as it would make imminent the start of a 5th wave move to new highs, which a move back above the 5-week sma at $800 would tend to confirm. An alternate that keeps the recent selling corrective … looks for a lower low in the $750-775 range. The question from a fundamental standpoint will be whether the forces causing this consolidation in metals will persist enough to take gold to it's lower target, or strengthen enough to take the bullish shine off silver and metals altogether.” ~Precious Points: More Tough Love from Bernanke and Co.

Gold Gaps UP, Targeting Trend to $850 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The streetTracks GOLD ETF (NYSE: GLD) gapped up this morning and has pushed up through its Nov-Dec resistance line at 80.00, which if sustained should trigger upside acceleration from the bullish triangle pattern that has developed during the past 7 weeks, and which projects an optimal target zone of 85.00-86.00.

Gold Stock Sentiment Paradox - HUI/Gold Ratio Trends / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you are a gold-stock investor, the dark cold days surrounding the winter solstice seem exceptionally fitting this year. As the warm sunlight has largely fled the northern hemisphere, so has bullish sentiment largely fled the gold stocks. Thankfully as inevitably as sun returning to the north, gold-stock sentiment too will thaw.

Today's terrible gold-stock sentiment is really something of a paradox. The gold price is the primary long-term driver of gold miners' profits and hence their stock prices. And gold is really looking good these days. After powering over $800 nominal for the first time in a quarter century in early November, gold has since casually meandered near $800 like it was born to trade here.

Gold Remains in Tight Trading Range over Christmas Holidays / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold was down $2.60 to $798.50 per ounce in New York yesterday but silver was up 14 cents to $14.21 per ounce. Gold traded sideways in Asia and ticked up in Europe and the London AM Fix was at $803 (up from $799.50). At the London AM Fix gold was trading at a new all time record in British pounds at £404.68 GBP (up from yesterday's London AM Fix at £401.62). Gold went up to €558.88 EUR (up from yesterday's London AM Fix at €557.30 ). Gold has again increased in sterling and in euros. Gold thus surpassed it's all time record high in british pounds with news of the horrendous current account deficit and deteriorating UK economy (see below). Gold will likely reach it's non inflation adjusted highs in euros and dollars early in the New Year.

Uranium Stocks Short-term Trend Improves / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

Well, that's two days in a row. Maybe we have the start of a rally. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index closed up for another day, up 0.106 points or 2.69%. There were a few more winners and a few less losers as requested yesterday. 34 stocks ended the day on the up side while 13 stocks ended the day on the down side. 3 stocks didn't go either way. Unfortunately, we had a mixed day for the five largest stocks. Cameco closed higher by 4.6%, Denison closed higher by 1.2%, Paladin closed lower by 0.4%, UEX closed lower by 0.6% and Uranium One closed higher by 1.2%.

By: Adrian_Ash

"Christmas is coming, the champagne's getting flat; "Please put a penny in the old broker's hat..." – David Phillips, The Chart Prophet

ONE OF THE BIG stumbling blocks for investors thinking about gold is that it doesn't offer to pay any income.

That's why bone-headed gold schemes turn up like Simon Cowell at a botox clinic.

Well, it's a start, now if we can only have a few more days like this, or better, we just might get a rally going. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index was up 0.085 points or 2.21% on the day. There were 29 winners and 16 losers with 5 unchanged. It would be nice to see a few more winners and a few less losers, but we will take what we get. Of the five major stocks, Cameco gained 3.5%, Denison gained 0.5%, Paladin, the only loser of the bunch, lost 0.9%, UEX gained 5.4% and Uranium One gained 1.0%. The best daily performer of the 50 component stocks was Triex Minerals with a gain of 23.4% while the worst performer was Pele Mountain with only a 4.8% loss.

2008 Gold and Gold stocks Fundamentals, Forecast and Technical Review / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe fundamentals for gold relates to the confidence level in paper currencies. When demand outstrips supply of dollars, the value of dollars goes up. The supply of dollars has been rising steadily at an average of 10% annually from less than $1 trillion in 1980 to over $12 trillion today. The fundamentals for gold thus have much to do with the lessening demand for dollars.

When dollar denominated assets lose value, people ditch dollars. As we have meticulously documented since August (see here ), the subprime mess has been the dollar's worst disaster in the last three decades. The subprime meltdown is now causing supposedly high-quality government sponsored debts to be selling at 70 cents on the dollar (Mad Cow contagion as we call it).

Only Gold Bullion Can Beat the Credit Crunch / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf course - to any Wall Street power broker, economist, or US policy maker, this headline means the equivalent of “Only Space Aliens Can Halt Teenage Pregnancies”. In other words, it's a total non-sequitur to them.

So what? Who cares about Wall Street, economists, or politicians? Individual investors, business owners, workers, fathers, mothers, and college students, they are the ones who must survive if the United States is to survive the mounting credit collapse more or less intact. Why worry about those who caused the mess?
