Silver Bull Market Shows Alarming Technicals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommodities and commodities-stock speculators have had quite a rough-and-tumble last full month of summer. In a season where the markets typically hold traders in a mire of malaise, various extraneous events have awoken the volatility beast making for an exciting August.

With general stocks retreating from record-high levels in mid-July, commodities stocks have transcended general stock losses and have temporarily bucked the historically-inverse correlation with general-stock bears. Precious-metals-stock traders in particular have endured a session of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Key tactical support levels of the venerable HUI gold-stock index were sliced through like a warm knife through butter.

But though the commodities stocks have taken some abuse of recent, this fearful selling is seemingly just shaking out the over-leveraged and weak-handed traders. Far too often traders forget that volatile consolidations are par for the course within commodities bulls. All this activity might just be the final rebalancing of sentiment so a powerful new upleg can emerge.

Resource Investors – Keep Your Eyes on the Prize / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Dudley_Baker

Investors continue to experience losses in their portfolios due to the recent market fears.

We continue to remind ourselves, as should all investors in the natural resource sector, that the big picture has not changed and the reasons and arguments for these investments are as sound today, if not more so. Corrections will come and yes, they will go, leading us to another great rally. But obviously that day not yet arrived. Patience and focus is essential for all of us at this time.

GOLD THOUGHTS - How Big will the US Housing Market Losses Be? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

The question seems to have changed. No longer does the question deal with whether or not U.S. housing market has bottomed. It has not. Now the question is far different. The depth of the U.S. mortgage market collapse is the question. How big will be losses? Which hedge fund will be next to burst into flames? In Germany, U.S. mortgage market collapse is likely to force a near complete structuring of banking industry. In the U.S., pink slips seem to be the primary output of housing and mortgage markets. The giant liquidity abyss created by this financial fantasy, and values were indeed a fantasy, is forcing central banks to sell U.S. government and agency debt. In the past three weeks, they sold more than $24 billion. U.S. dollar has massive overhead supply that will depress it for years.

Spot Gold Prices Rally in London as Asian Stocks Dive, Eurozone Money Supply Surges / Commodities / Money Supply

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES rallied in the first-half of London trade on Wednesday, adding $4 per ounce from the overnight low to hit $666 after Asian stock markets ended the day sharply lower.

A UK hedge fund said it may have to liquidate $6 billion in assets due to the ongoing global credit crunch. The European Central Bank announced that growth in its M3 measure of the Eurozone's money supply surged to a quarter-century record in July, rising by 11.7% from a year earlier compared with 10.9% growth in June.

Gold Investments Market Update / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Clark

Mark O'Byrne writes: Spot gold was trading at $668.00/668.50 an ounce as of 1215 GMT.

Gold has traded sideways to slightly up in Asia and Europe after yesterday's very slight sell off.
Previous resistance at $660 is now the first level of support and very strong support is seen at $640. The next level of resistance is at $675 which we believe will be challenged in the coming weeks in gold's seasonally strong period.

Elliott Wave Analysis of the AMEX Gold BUGS Index / Commodities / Elliott Wave Theory

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter publishing the HUI last week, I have had a number of questions about my count. Surprisingly, out of 50 emails received, some 20 were wondering how valid the count was if it was analyzed in semi-log format. Most of the work I do for constructing wave counts are based upon analysis on the weekly charts in semi-log format. The software that I use for displaying the Elliott Wave charts does not have a semi-log function, so I must display them in linear format. With all of the emails, the entire article from last week is presented to hopefully subdue any queries (and my email box) anyone may have.

Weekly Gold and Silver Technical Analysis Report - 27th August 2007 - Technically Precious with Merv / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Good week but on pathetic daily trading volume. Professionals still on vacation ??? Let's see where we are.

GOLD : LONG TERM : Semi-Log Scale

I was sort of unsure which long term chart to show this week, a bar (or candlestick) chart or a P&F chart. However, the P&F chart shown with the 03 Aug 2007 commentary has still not budged. It is still as it was then. All that action over the past few weeks made not a smidgeon of effect on the P&F chart. For those interested in what it looks like you can go to the archives of some web sites publishing these commentaries. I will show the P&F again one of these weeks, especially if there is some movement in the chart.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: The Question of Deflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“Gold perfectly held the 50-week moving average long watched here as strong, critical support. Resistance in the 665/70 area will be crucial to any recovery next week. Silver could now be mired in a lower trading range for the near term. At the very least, silver will likely face considerable resistance before new highs can even be contemplated. The Fed has been working behind the scenes … as it shepherds domestic growth through this decidedly difficult period. Growth... is still the outcome Bernanke seems to favor strongly.” ~ Precious Points: Gold Got Sold, but Should You Hold? , August 18, 2007

Will Gold Benefit from Calmed or Crippled Confidence? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

The gold price has continued to look solid in the $650 area. Confidence in the banking, not just the mortgage system was given quite a blow last week. The $ rallied, but is in the process of turning down again. What lies ahead and why? Here are some of our views, which were published in the latest edition of the Gold Forecaster last week. These views are now being expanded there, with a closer look at the two types of "liquidity" supply.

Credit Crunch Bites HUI Gold Bugs Index; Carnage Amongst Junior Miners / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

After weathering a consolidation running for 16 months now, the remaining precious-metals-stock investors and speculators are a pretty hardened lot. Used to being the ridiculed black-sheep contrarians, it takes quite a bit to faze us. Yet the brutal downside action in the HUI last week certainly fit the bill.

Between Monday the 13th and Thursday the 16th, the HUI unhedged gold-stock index shed 18% of its value on an intraday basis. Wednesday and Thursday were the particularly nasty days, with 3/4ths of these losses occurring between the open Wednesday and the first couple hours of trading on Thursday morning.

Inflation Beating Savings: Gimmick or a Good Deal? / Commodities / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Rachel Thrussell, Head of Savings at Moneyfacts.co.uk – the money search engine, investigates:“A new breed of savings accounts has emerged over the last month with Leeds BS and National Counties offering products that promise to beat inflation. But how do they fare in the current market? Are they a good deal or just a gimmick?

“Savers may be fooled into thinking these inflation beating accounts offer something special over and above a standard savings account, but if inflation remains under tight control (within 1% either way of the official 2% target), a best buy fixed deal could offer an equal or better return in the longer term.
