Bearish Bets on Gold Hiked Aggressively But Prices Move Sideways / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

LONDON prices for gold reflected subdued dealing Monday morning, slipping 0.9% to $1279 by lunchtime as silver and other commodities also dropped but major government bond price edged higher.

European shares drifted lower as well, but the MSCI World index was pulled up to 6-year highs by a sharp rise in Chinese equities.

COMEX Gold Claims per Ounce Hit 69 to 1 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

Nothing much of note in the metals today as they continued to bump into overheard resistance.

There was little movement of gold bullion in or out of the Comex warehouses.

I had asked Nick Laird of Sharelynx to check his figures and it turns out that the 'claims per ounce' from yesterday were a bit light at 63. That did seem very little for a 51,000 ounce change in registered inventory.

Gold And Silver When Fundamentals Fail And Charts Prevail / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

There is a decline in the number of reads in our articles that do not provide a fully developed "fundamental" story about why gold and silver should be much higher in price, [but are not]. Relying upon charts to more accurately capture the developing "story" does not capture the imagination of as many readers, for whatever reason. We attribute this to Confirmation Bias where a reader wants to read an article that confirms his/her beliefs The accuracy/validity/truth may or may not be true, but is satisfies an emotional need for affirmation.

Will Gold follow Gold and USD Higher? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

In our most recent article on gold, USD and Euro Indices we wrote that the outlook for the yellow metal was bearish just as the outlook for the Euro Index and just as it was bullish for the USD Index. At this time - since all of the above-mentioned markets moved in the opposite way - you might be wondering if we are sticking to the above analysis. In the medium-term, we do, but not in the short run. In fact, earlier this week we told our subscribers to cash in the profits from the short positions as the bullish correction was quite likely to be seen.

Why the Sell-Off in Gold Bullion Is Based on Faulty Logic / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: Over the last few days, gold bullion in U.S. dollars has been under selling pressure yet again. With the price of gold bullion pulling back, one obvious question arises: what’s the appropriate investment strategy at this point?

Many are pointing to talk that the Federal Reserve is about to reduce its monetary stimulus, and this has led some investors to adjust their investment strategy by reducing their gold bullion holdings.

Gold - Will it Drop to $1000 or Was a Bottom Formed in Summer? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Toby_Connor

The blogosphere seems to have gotten the idea that I am predicting $1000 as a sure thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. I've said many times in the past that I think there are parties trying to push gold to that level. Will they succeed is anyone's guess, but I think they are clearly trying. I also believe that the bear market this past year was an artificial and manufactured move.

Gold Bullion - Indian Paying Equivalent $1,565 Per Ounce For Physical Gold Bullion / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

“Let us not, in the pride of our superior knowledge, turn with contempt from the follies of our predecessors. The study of the errors into which great minds have fallen in the pursuit of truth can never be uninstructive...

Hitherto no difficulty had been experienced by any class in procuring specie for their wants. But this system could not long be carried on without causing a scarcity. The voice of complaint was heard on every side, and inquiries being instituted, the cause was soon discovered. The council debated long on the remedies to be taken, and [John] Law, being called on for his advice, was of the opinion, that an edict should be published, depreciating the value of coin five per cent below that of paper.

USD as a Percentage of Global Reserves Down, Then Up. What's next for Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

When the euro arrived on the scene, it took over around 32% of global foreign exchange reserves from the USD, with the tacit approval of the U.S. This dropped the USD's percentage of global reserves from 95% to around 63%. Since then [2000] its percentage of reserves dropped from 63% to 53% and now has risen back to 56%.

Arrival of the Euro

When the Euro arrived on the scene, gold continued to be held -- with the exception of the amounts sold under the Washington Agreement and the Central Bank Gold Agreements -- alongside the Yen, Sterling and the Swiss Franc.

Crude Oil Stock Index and Its Relationship with the Stock Market / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Nadia_Simmons

In our previous commentary, we took a look at the situation in crude oil from the long- and the short-term perspectives to check whether they confirm the indications from the medium-term picture or not. As we wrote in the summary:

(...) light crude reached the declining long-term support line, which may trigger a bigger pullback. Additionally, it bounced off the lower border of the declining trend channel in terms of daily closing prices, which may result in further growth in the coming days (similarly to what we saw in the previous month).

As such, be aware of a slow and choppy recovery in the next few days before downtrend resumes. From a timing perspective, this wave ii) could complete the path on Monday or Tuesday.

Investor Psychology Can Trump Gold Stocks Market Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

With gold and silver equities markets as volatile as ever and assets of many miners valued at pennies on the dollar, Eric Muschinski, editor of the Gold Investment Letter, believes being on the right side of the emotional curve when investing is critical. He pays as much attention to investor psychology as he does to market fundamentals. In this interview with The Gold Report, Muschinski explains how investors can use knowledge of market cycles to their advantage and profiles undervalued companies flying under the radar.

The Gold Report: You have published a recent e-letter for investors called "Fighting Battles to Win the War." Please sum up the major themes of the issue, especially around how small-cap stock investors can combat impatience and deal with the emotional stress associated with temporary market downturns.

Platinum ‘Rich Man’s Gold’ is Palladium: Tomorrow’s? / Commodities / Palladium

By: David_Morgan

The Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) are a family comprised of 6 metals - platinum, palladium rhodium, iridium, osmium and ruthenium. But for our purpose today (and for most investors), we are only interested in the first two - platinum and palladium.

Platinum is usually more expensive than gold. But for well over a year, it actually traded for less - substantially less. One could purchase a troy ounce of platinum for $150 or so less than a troy ounce of gold. (As a side note, during the time of this unusual inverted pricing relationship, in expectation of the "norm" reestablishing itself, I placed a long platinum/short gold spread trade. Of course, this did indeed take place and I was able to make a good profit on the trade.)

ANALYSTS cited comments from a US Fed policymaker on a likely reduction next month in the pace of asset purchases for a new 1-month low in gold Wednesday morning, with prices eventually bouncing $15 from $1262 per ounce as world stock markets also slipped.

QE tapering "could very well take place" in December, said Atlanta Fed president Dennis Lockhart late Tuesday.

Gold, It’s Been Proven for 2,500 Years / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

It’s surprising how many people rudely interrupt me to say “Hey! Shut up for one minute about how the evil Federal Reserve is creating so much currency and credit that we are doomed to a horrible inflationary collapse, and just tell me if you want fries with your burger.”

On the other hand, none of them has ever asked me, “Okay, let’s see how smart you are in solving the economic mess, Mister Know-It-All who thinks he is so smart.”

Gold Tops and Bots Cycles Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ed_Carlson

In last week's Commentary I promised to share my forecast for the low of the 10/28/13 decline. I call my approach the Hybrid-Lindsay method as it uses the concept of Middle Sections which were developed by George Lindsay in his seminal paper "An Aid to Timing". Using Middle Sections tells us whether to expect the forecast date to be a high or a low. I combine this approach with what Lindsay called "intervals of equidistance". These are similar to cycles except that they can stretch from high-to-low or low-to-high and not just low-to-low as cycles are normally thought of.
