Gold Drops 1.5% as US Core PCE Inflation Falls / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES dropped to a three-session low as the New York opening drew near on Friday after the Commerce Dept. said a key measure of US price inflation dipped last month.

The "Core PCE" inflation – which strips out both food and fuel prices, and which is closely watched by the Federal Reserve – rose by 2.0% in the year-to-February, just shy of Wall Street forecasts.

Gold's Performance as a Safe Haven Asset / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has traded sideways to slightly down in Asian and early trading in London this morning. Gold was down 30 cents to $948.80 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday while silver was up 17 cents to $18.49 per ounce.

Silver Bull Market Outperforming Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn August of 2004, when Silver was $6 and Gold was $380 I wrote the 4 reasons for liking silver more than gold.

- Supply and demand -
Mine production could not satisfy physical demands of either gold or silver. However, I like silver better because most official sectors, such as the US government, have run out of silver. Only governments do nutty things like selling a valuable asset to suppress its price. I trust the private enterprises holding silver stockpiles to be logical (i.e. profit-seeking) participants in the silver market.

Gold Slips as US Dollar Bounces Despite US Economic Slowdown / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD slipped 1.1% early in London on Thursday, giving back yesterday's bounce to fall below $943 per ounce as world equity markets ticked higher and crude oil reached a one-week high after a militia attack on Iraq's main oil terminal.

"The Gold Market at the moment continues to drift sideways," says Mitsui in Sydney . "With quarter-end approaching, the metal's momentum to the upside could well be capped in the immediate term."

No Tears for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Michael_Pento

So, the word on the street—both Wall Street and Main Street—is that the rally is over for gold and other hard assets . It's time to look elsewhere for increasing value, right? Actually, we believe the recent sell off is a blip rather than a reversal of a trend, one which will provide an entry point for those who are paying attention.

Gold Healthy Three Leg Short-term Correction / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Effectiveness of a central bank can be measured several ways. For investors, that assessment is by return provided by equity capital in a nation and value of the nation's money. This week's chart shows that Federal Reserve deserves a failing grade. Back line is total return, including dividends, of S&P 500 over past ten years. That return has been a little more than 3% per year for ten years, and essentially zero for past eight.

Here's more from that subscriber of ours down in Argentina who we have dubbed 'Crazy Like a Fox' for his insights into the economy, financial markets and commodities and the way he has positioned himself in these troubled times to profit from those insights. Like his previous emails to us which we edited into articles ("Crazy Man's Rant - He's Crazy like a Fox", "A Crazy Man's Rant or Right On - You be the Judge", "Lighten up and Enjoy the Commodities Ride" and "Commodities are for 'Crafty' not 'Crazy' Investors) we have done the same with his latest which we received this past Thursday after the commodities debacle of Wednesday. If his previous 'emails' are any indication you will enjoy and prosper from what he has to say.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD regained a three-session high early Tuesday, rising 1.1% as London re-opened after the long Easter weekend to touch $936 per ounce – a level first broken at the end of January.

Balancing a Portfolio with Commodities / Commodities / Learning to Invest

By: Frank_Holmes

With all of the volatility we're seeing in 2008, this is one of those times when investors really value assets that are not correlated to the broader markets.

That explains much of the current interest in commodities – investors are looking for ways to protect themselves through diversification.

Gold Dramatic Correction Back into Buying Territory / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is back in buying territory after its dramatic correction back to key intermediate trendline support.

In the last update we were looking for gold to break out above the $1,000 level. It did and briefly got to about $1030 before it turned tail and dropped precipitously. Interestingly, the short-lived run at $1030 occurred last Sunday at the time of the Bear Stearns emergency, and the time when the crisis was at its most acute was the point at which gold topped out, which is what one would expect.

Gold and Silver Analysis- What Goes Up Must Come Down,,,, / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The current trend now is clearly down as confirmed by violation of the 5-week sma on Tuesday and it should be expected that rallies will be used as an opportunity to further liquidate long positions. And because gold in has moved so far so fast a substantial decline will likely ensue. But it would take a move below $750, that's over 25% from Monday's high, before there's serious damage to the bull market. It may not look pretty between now an then, but until conditions change, the 50-week moving average serves as support for the bull market.” ~ Precious Points: Gold Gets Sold , March 19, 2008

Gold Downward Spiral Targeting Primary Up-trendline at $840 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

What does one say after a week like this past one? Memories of an old movie come to mind and the saying “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times”, then off they went to the guillotine. Those with their heads still intact might eventually benefit down the road.

GOLD : LONG TERM
For those with a long term focus the long term P&F chart suggests that there is still no worry about a bear market. The price of gold would have to drop to the $885 level to break below both a (secondary) up trend line and two previous lows, or more importantly must move to the $840 level to break below the primary up trend line. Should such a break come, that would project down to the $720 level for now, but first things first. Let's check where we are with the normal charts and indicators.

The US Fed Engineered Commodities Price Plunge / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world-wide fiat system functions like a roach motel: Investors check in - but they NEVER check out! By it's latest hit on commodities, the Fed as the system-leader gave investors a shot across the bow. The message: "If you try to leave, we will hurt you!"

("Leaving the fiat system" here means to store your wealth in more tangible forms that are not as susceptible to engineered currency collapses.)
