Exploding the Myth of Unbacked Silver Certificates and Phony Silver Storage / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExecutive summary

Analysts put their own construction on facts coming out of the class-action suit between Morgan-Stanley and 22,000 of its clients involving costs associated with the storage of precious metals. They jump to the conclusion that metal supposedly backing outstanding silver certificates does not exist and never has. Storing silver on clients' account is a farce. From this they conclude that the net short commercial interest in silver on the COMEX, allegedly naked, must further be increased by adding the amount of unbacked silver certificates and phony storage, which they conservatively estimate at one billion ounces.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Sean Brodrick writes : I just got back from a scouting trip to an oil and gas explorer in the Gulf of Mexico. The company I visited is small but promising.

I'll tell you more about this explorer — Bayou Bend Petroleum — in just a moment. First …

Gold Bull Resliant As US Dollar Falls to Record Lows / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold
Gold was down $4.20 to $784.40 in New York on Tuesday. Since closing in New York it traded sideways in the New York Access market, in Asia and early in Europe rose slightly to trade at $785.90 at 1100 GMT.

Gold is trading at £379.16 (GBP) and €543.86 (EUR). It is thus near record nominal highs in terms of GBP and EUR respectively.

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePreparing comments on any investment topic day before FOMC announces U.S. interest rate policy is probably a futile gesture. That the announcement comes on Halloween provides an opportunity for cutesy comments which will be avoided. However according to the UN FAO, the world consumed 18.774 million tonnes of pumpkins, squash and gourds in the latest reporting year.

Weakness Developing in Energy / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Today's weakness in the Energy Select SPDR (AMEX: XLE) coupled with the developing downtrend in my daily RSI pattern suggest strongly that last week's near-vertical advance indeed was a vicious counter-trend climb to a lower-high, rather than a new upleg.

Crude Oil Nearing Major Peak / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Time to consult with the very long-term chart pattern in crude oil, from the December 1998 low at $10.35, which has a very bullish pattern, into today's high, but also a pattern that is in its final few percentage points of making a multi-month if not a multi-year high. All of the action off of the Jan 12, 2007 pullback low at $49.90 represents the final upmove in the larger 1998-2007 upleg. The relationships between the various legs during the most recent 10-month upmove point ot a target zone of $97 to $102, or an additional 4%-10% climb in crude oil prices prior to the anticipated peak and reversal.

Digital Nirvana And The Unfolding Mania In Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is set to move higher over the next few days towards $800 in a blow-off of the larger sequence since summer. This could send some precious metals stocks far higher than may be contemplated by some, where corrections would only take complex components back to current proximities. That being said, while such an assessment may or may not prove correct, one thing is for sure, anybody attempting to time inter-waves within larger sequences could find themselves left ‘standing at the station', unable to get back in without paying up. This of course will depend on how quickly the ‘cake eaters' (for our Italian friends) decide to debase fiat currencies around the world in preemptive monetary largesse.

Weekly Gold and Silver Technical Analysis Report - Surge in Shorts Open Interest Trying to Cap Golds Bull Run / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWow! what a week. It starts with a plunge and ends with a zoom. Which, oh which is the REAL direction of least resistance?

SHORTS
If that open interest is mostly shorts, someone is sure set on losing their shirts. They've added another 16000 short contracts this past week and that's not including Friday. I'll bet that the open interest really moved on Friday. All that money trying to cool the bullish run on gold. Who, oh who could be that speculative to be risking all that capital on the short side when the strength is on the up side? Unless – maybe the shorts are not playing with their own personal money.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: The Mighty Ben Bernanke / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 5-week simple moving average in gold has been explicitly mentioned in the TTC forums and chatroom as the bare minimum for confirmation of a reversal. Without even a retest of the 5-week moving average, it's impossible to expect anything but a consolidation leading to new highs. Silver has not been reacting as closely to developments in the currencies, central banks and economic data, it's future will probably be decided by the direction gold takes, either sharply to new highs or into a much deeper retracement. With volatily again on the rise, the importance of support at about $13.25 will also be increasing.

Reasons for Buying and Investing in Gold - Part 1 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoving away from the US Dollar

1. Vietnam is planning to cut its purchases of US Treasuries and other dollar bonds, raising fears that Asian central banks with control over two-thirds of the world's foreign reserves may soon join the flight from U.S. assets. The State Bank of Vietnam was abandoning the attempt to hold down the Vietnamese currency through heavy purchases of dollars. The policy is causing the economy to overheat, driving up inflation to 8.8%. Vietnam, which has mid-sized reserves of $40 billion, is seen as weathervane for the bigger Asian powers.

Why Silver Is Lagging the Gold Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the middle of August alone, gold has powered 18% higher driving a 40% rally in the HUI gold-stock index. Just a week ago the Ancient Metal of Kings closed near $768, its highest nominal levels seen since its famous January 1980 super spike. And both gold and HUI seasonals now argue for more gains in the months ahead. Today really is the best of times for gold investors.

Despite this good fortune, a nagging doubt is gnawing away at the minds of many traders. Silver, which tends to run higher with gold, has not been confirming gold's move. While gold carves majestic new bull highs, silver hasn't even come close yet to exceeding its May 2006 high of just under $15. Though it has run 20% higher at best since mid-August, barely beating gold's gains is considered a failure for silver.

Credit Crunch Meltdown and For Gold the Trend is Your Friend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold
Gold was trading sideways in Asia and early in Europe and is trading at $764.50. Resistance is at last week's 28-year high of $770, while support is at $750 and there is strong support at $725. Gold's price oscillator (PPO), is showing that gold is not particularly overbought. It is still below 3 whereas after the last serious move in the gold price into the May 2006 highs, the PPO reached as high as 6.
