Gold Gets Sold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

TTC members were told Thursday morning we could be “hours or days” from a top in gold. The top actually printed two trading days later on Monday, when front month gold futures moved briefly above 1030 and sold off, producing a bearish reversal candle on the daily chart below.

Crude Oil and Commodities Get Clobbered Whilst Equities Barely Changed / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat do you know, the ProShares UltraShort Oil & Gas ETF (AMEX: DUG) is going up, but the major equity market ETFs, like Q's, SPY, DIA, are barely going down! In other words, it is just the energy sector (XLE) and other commodity sectors, that are getting clobbered while the main equity sectors behave very well after a 4% advance. This is what I was thinking on Monday when I managed to buy the high of the DUG-- that the energy and commodity trades (the crowed ones like gold and oil) were about kaput on the upside, which should in theory reverse, sending the DUG above 42.20 into the 45.00-46.00 target zone.

Credit Crisis Hits Gold As Margin Calls Hit Investment Funds / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD and gold futures prices sank as the US open drew near on Wednesday, falling almost 3% to bounce off a seven-session low as oil prices and soft commodities continued to tick lower and European stocks climbed back from an earlier 1.2% drop.

In Australia a major real-estate investment fund today faced a A$30 million margin call (US$27.9m), reports the Herald Sun, while the highly-geared Wesfarmers fund denied rumors it could only re-finance an outstanding US$3.7 billion private-equity debt at 4% above prevailing cash rates.

Gold and Platinum- A Tale of Two Metals / Commodities / Platinum

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," Charles Dickens famously wrote. That certainly describes markets nowadays, doesn't it?

Heck, Ben Bernanke chopped both the fed funds rate and the discount rate by 75 basis points yesterday — another indication of just how bad things have really gotten.

Gold Healthy Consolidation Following US Interest Rate Cut / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was up $2.20 to $1003 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday while silver was down 30 cents to $19.89 per ounce. In illiquid electronic trading after the Federal Reserve cut interest rates by 75 basis points, very counter intuitively gold fell in value by nearly 2%. With gold already up by more than 19% so far this year (some 10 weeks), consolidation is healthy and to be expected.

Agricultural Commodities Correction Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Corrections are a friend of investors. Same is true for professional traders. Traders on Main Street enjoy them less. Learn to take advantage of them, rather than be buffeted by them. Investors should be anticipating any possible correction in their favorite industries in order to make timely purchases. Currently, for example, the Agri-Food sector may be developing one of the first good corrections in some time. Cash prices for many Agri-Food commodities have retreated.

Uranium Stocks Bearish Trend With Potential for Bottom Formation / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

Another downer of a day for the uranium stocks but looking at the chart it looks more like the start of a reversal activity than a continuation of a bear. Yes, the Index did close lower but the daily action stayed within the confines of yesterday's activity. A real down day would be a close below yesterday's low. Anyway, the Merv's Daily Uranium I ndex closed lower by 0.051 points or 1.67%. There were 20 winners, 25 losers and 5 unchanged.

Gold to Sell off to $940 on US Interest Rate Cut Decision / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBig day for gold and the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) because just about everyone believes that the Fed will cut rates 75 to 100 bps, which will crush the dollar and trigger another upleg in gold. My technical work argues differently -- that the GLD has peak and that "good news" will be sold at the top of the Jan-Mar channel, and the GLD will traverse towards the lower portion of the channel, now in the vicinity of 94.00.

Gold Recovers and Stocks Bounce Ahead of US Interest Rate Cut / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES ticked higher vs. both the Dollar and Euros in London on Tuesday, gaining more than 1.3% from an overnight dip against each currency as global stock markets bounced after Monday's shock losses.

By lunchtime in London – where the AM Gold Fix was set nearly $20 below Monday's record of $1,023.50 per ounce – the MSCI World Index stood 0.9% higher to show its first gain since Wednesday last week.

Gold Strong as Safehaven in the Face of Worst Financial Crisis since 1987 Crash / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was up $2.10 to $1000.80 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday while silver was down 25 cents to $20.36 per ounce. Gold surged on the open in Asia yesterday and reached a new record high ($1030.80 per ounce). Subsequently, with U.S. stock markets miraculously recovering, gold succumbed to profit taking and ended the day only slightly higher.

UltraShort Crude Oil & Gas ETF on the Move / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Mike_Paulenoff

As of this moment, the Jan-Feb lows at 34.69 and 35.52 represent a potentially major double-bottom in the DUG that has the power to thrust prices towards the 46.00-47.00 resistance (breakout zone). Initial resistance hovers along the declining 200 DMA, now at 43.33. Any weakness from current levels must hold 40.00 to preserve today's near-term upside breakout at 41.20/50.

Gold Jumps 3% as Panic Selling Hits Banking Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

PHYSICAL GOLD PRICES leapt more than 3% at the start of world trade on Monday – and the US Dollar and Asian stock markets sank – on news that the Federal Reserve will today start lending directly to New York investment banks to "bolster market liquidity and promote orderly market functioning."

The Gold Market then gave back half of its early gains to $1,015 per ounce, while European equities lost more than 3% from Friday's close.

Gold $1000 and Bullish, Silver Boxed in for a Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWOW! $1000 per oz. Where to from here? I still remember when the DOW first breached its 1000 mark. It was 10 years before it went anywhere after that. I don't see the same for gold, but who knows?

GOLD : LONG TERM
Well, it hasn't quite hit my long term P&F projection of $1020 but it got awfully close. Maybe this week. The next projection would then be $1125. The very long term $1600 projection is getting closer and closer.

Crude Oil Bull Market Uncovers Two New Investment Opportunities / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are few countries or regions of the world that are seeing real growth in oil production. The simple fact is that the large onshore fields that have met the world's oil demand for decades are now mature and already seeing declining production.

To offset declines from these easy-to-produce oil and gas fields, producers will increasingly target smaller, more-complex fields, as well as fields that are harder and more expensive to reach.

A Cheaper Dollar to Take Dollar Gold Prices Much Higher? / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

As with so many crises in history, the consequences of certain situations are not foreseen, or if they had been foreseen were downplayed to either inaction, or insufficient action. So it has been with the "sub-prime" crisis that is now a full blown liquidity crisis that is spreading like a gangrene into other aspects of the credit market. You may still wonder why this crisis is causing such a threat to the entire financial system so as to cause the Fed to 'throw money from helicopters'? The problem is essentially due to the functioning of collateral.

Crude Oil Weakness Ahead Means Rally for Macroshares Oil Inverted / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Mike_Paulenoff

At the very least, my near-term work in the MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable Shares (AMEX: DCR) is warning me that the Jan-Mar decline from near 15.00 to 8.00 is complete, and that a recovery rally period has started that should carry to a minimum of 10.00/30. Only a resumption of weakness that violates 8.00 will invalidate my current outlook, which will imply that crude oil prices are roaring again.
