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.

Investing in Silver - the Bulky Precious Metal / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Morgan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHaving survived another holiday season, and after putting away most of the holiday decorations, my mind wandered as to what would be a good article to start off the New Year. Certainly we could follow the general genre and produce a forecast for 2008 on the economy, metals prices, elections—however, it seems there is already enough of this out on the Internet already. 

My musing took me back to challenge the general “non-thinking” consensus about the silver market and an opinion that I'm met with quite often. Without the myriad of twists on the basic question, let me make it a general statement.

Gold $900 and 2008 Forecast / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot even a month into 2008 and Gold is stealing all headlines again. The ancient metal of kings has hit an all time nominal high while many other markets have struggled since August. Can gold go higher from here? Is this a top? Below is a long-term weekly chart of the aforementioned metal.

The various black trendlines all have the same slope and therefore form important channels. Gold has just hit long-term channel resistance. The Bollinger band width is very high, also implying a top could be at hand. The arrows show trendline support. The current risk outweighs the reward.

Is Copper Signaling Lower Gold Prices Ahead? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere's a question many investors have asked in recent weeks, especially given the current divergence between the gold and copper prices.

Copper has a history of providing leading signals for the price of gold. Most notably, the copper price double-bottomed between 1999-2001 and refused to make a lower low during a time when the price of gold make a 20-year low. This leading signal in copper preceded the major turnaround in the yellow metal price in 2002 and beyond.

Uranium, Gold and Silver Outlook / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Merv_Burak

Well, gold has now made it to a new all time intra-day high. Again, so what? Momentum and volume activity are still lagging. Go with the flow but keep your protective options at the ready.

URANIUM
By all news accounts uranium is much in demand these days. In fact, uranium is supposed to be in greater and greater demand over the next many years as more and more nuclear plants in China and elsewhere come on steam. But it seems that after a sharp run-up over the past few years uranium and uranium stocks just can't seem to get any more steam for further advancement. Were they so overpriced that they are now destined not to go anywhere for some time, until the usage increases significantly?

Natural Gas Long-term Outlook / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNatural gas prices have been on a roll in the past few weeks, with the 12-month New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) strip rising to about $8.50 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) this morning, up more than $1 dollar off recent lows.

As I discussed in a post on At These Levels yesterday, the NYMEX strip is the most relevant measure of natural gas prices in the US. On NYMEX, gas futures contracts trade with expirations every month. Prices vary wildly from month to month because of seasonality, expectations of future supply shortages or gluts, and the cost of gas storage, among other factors.

Gold Strength During US Bi-Inflationary Depression / Commodities / Deflation

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWatch gold prices continue to rise, even accelerate, as the US economy goes into recession, then depression, while inflationary and deflationary forces will battle each other like two vultures fighting over which one gets to devour the juicier part of the carcass. Since this scenario utterly defies conventional wisdom, the most obvious question that arises is: “how?” How can inflation and deflation happen at the same time? How can the money supply both shrink and increase, how can prices both rise and fall at the same time?It can, because each condition will occur in different segments of the economy. Let's first take a look at the current situation as it presents itself:

Energy Sector Stunning Demand and Production Trends & Developments / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile we did not see triple digit crude oil prices in the futures market last year we remain optimistic the energy sector will perform well in 2008. Growing global energy demands will continue to present challenges to the market.

Several graphics we ran across last month illustrate the major issues in the energy sector. The chart at right from an article in the Financial Times illustrates that the use of fossil fuels has correlated very closely with economic growth over the last 185 years.

Gold $900 - Fed Failing to Beat Inflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Any perception of the Fed's stinginess might play into a consolidation period for metals and could also start a rally in the dollar that has so far not appeared at the top of the year as some expected. That we've seen any weakness in metals at all lately might simply be the technicals asserting themselves, flattening out the ascent a bit before another run. Consider that oil is trading at all-time inflation adjusted highs, whereas gold's inflation adjusted record is above $2000 per ounce! Breaking through and holding last week's highs will be the first objective of any bullish activity.” ~ Precious Points: Wave 1 Done? January 06, 2008

Gold and Silver Stocks Bull Market Vs US Stocks Secular Bear Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe young new year has not been very happy at all for the stock markets. In the first five trading days of 2008 alone, the S&P 500 bled a brutal 5.3%. This sharp slide nearly doubled the SPX's losses since early October to 11.2%. Once a general-market correction exceeds 10%, Wall Street gets nervous.

These growing fears have been very apparent on CNBC, which reflects general stock-market sentiment as efficiently as a weathervane reflects prevailing winds. Hosts and guest commentators alike on this premier television network for traders have been universally wringing their hands in disgust. Not only are they worried, but they are lamenting that “all sectors” are being crushed by the “universal selloff”.

Crude Oil Crisis and How to Profit From the Coming Oil Boom! / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Recently, I told you that I expected oil prices could spike to $150 per barrel in 2008. But, if anything, that target might be too low! In fact, the head of the International Energy Agency just said that demand growth just from China and India alone could cause prices to rise to $150 per barrel.

So imagine what other factors such as geopolitical disruptions would do to prices! Indeed, the fastest-growing bet in the oil market these days is that the price of crude will double to $200 a barrel by the end of this year.

Ranking of Silver Stocks In Order of Leverage / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThree months ago at the beginning of October The Silver Analyst had a look at 60 silver or silver related stocks and ranked them according to the most important feature investors want in a silver mining stock. That feature is leverage. If silver is powering ahead as we expect it to do increasingly in the months ahead then we want stocks which power ahead even more than silver.

To that end a table was produced which ranked each stock not just by absolute gain but by how much it was delivering leverage on the price of silver. That study was conducted for prices from the major intraday lows on August 16th 2007 to the intraday highs near to October 2nd 2007. I won't reproduce the whole table but will show you who the top ten performing stocks over that time period were.

After a brief blip upwards right at the open in Sydney, gold commenced a steady, slow upward trend throughout most of the day. After Sydney closed, it dropped a wee bit and then began an asymptotic moon shot that was immediately capped upon the London open.

Gold is making new all-time highs today, as the dollar price for spot gold rises above $890 an ounce .

Strong fund buying since the start of the new year, momentum in the key Japanese gold futures price, and the launch of a new gold contract in Shanghai helped to fuel the rise, according to Reuters.
