Copper Price Movements Augur Well for Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

The charts are increasingly looking positive for silver, technical analyst Clive Maund says, and copper's price movements are good news for silver.

The long base pattern in silver continues with positive price/volume action of recent weeks suggesting that it is approaching completion. On its 10-year chart we can see the giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern that has formed in silver, which parallels the one in gold, but is downsloping because silver tends to underperform gold at the end of bear markets and early in bull markets.

Why Korean Tensions Should Soon Ease: The Effect on the Dollar and Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

The tensions centered on the Korean peninsula should soon ease, leading to a rally in the dollar and a (mild) reaction in precious metals and other commodities like copper, says technical analyst Clive Maund.

There can be no denying that what we have previously referred to as "The Empire" is intent on world domination. The evidence is there for all to see in the form of a vast network of military bases spread across the globe, and a history of invasion of various countries by the Empire in recent years in pursuit of its geopolitical objectives. The economic engine that drives the Empire and supports its imperialistic ambitions is the dollar, whose Reserve Currency status means that infinite quantities of it (or proxy derivatives like Treasuries) can be printed up and swapped for goods and services with any and all countries around the world, and it is this dynamic that supports the formidable U.S. military machine.

How EIA Guestimates Keep Crude Oil Prices Subdued / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

The EIA has once again undercut its previous estimates for U.S. oil production, offering further evidence that the U.S. shale industry is not producing as much as everyone thinks.

The monthly EIA oil production figures tend to be more accurate than the weekly estimates, although they are published on several months after the fact. The EIA just released the latest monthly oil production figures for June, for example. Meanwhile, the agency releases production figures on a weekly basis that are only a week old – the latest figures run up right through August.

When and how to invest in the commodity market – Taking a balanced step forward / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

Commodity prices usually soar higher during inflationary periods. There are times when the economy goes through soaring levels of inflation, just like it happened in 1970s. During that period, interest rates surged up to 18% to fight against the levels of inflation and the prices of commodities reached their record high levels. However, it is not that all periods of inflation have to be so extreme but at the same time it is true that commodities usually perform well when there is mild inflation in the country.

Gold Breakout & Upside Price Targets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Gold cleared $1300 early in the week and padded its gains on Friday even amid a bullish weekly reversal in the US Dollar. Gold’s breakout was validated by a strong monthly close on Thursday and then a strong weekly close Friday. As predicted, the miners perked up with the breakout in Gold. GDX and GDXJ gained nearly 6% and 7% respectively for the week. Look for the miners to continue to trend higher as Gold attempts to retest its 2016 highs around $1375/oz.

Silver Junior Mining Stocks 2017 Q2 Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2017

By: Zeal_LLC

The silver miners’ stocks have largely languished this year, grinding sideways near lows for months on end.  This vexing consolidation has fueled near-universal bearishness, leaving silver stocks deeply out of favor.  But once a quarter when earnings season arrives, hard fundamentals pierce the obscuring veil of popular sentiment.  The silver miners’ recently-reported Q2’17 results reveal today’s silver prices remain profitable.

Four times a year publicly-traded companies release treasure troves of valuable information in the form of quarterly reports.  These are generally due by 45 days after quarter-ends in the US and Canada.  They offer true and clear snapshots of what’s really going on operationally, shattering the misconceptions bred by the ever-shifting winds of sentiment.  There’s no silver-miner data that is more highly anticipated than quarterlies.

13 Reasons Why to Own Gold After Breaking Above $1300 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Submissions

Michal Matovcik writes: Gold is showing decent strength going into the end of summer breaking above strong psychological and technical level of $1300 per ounce which can finally confirm the beginning of long-term bull market. At the same time, gold reached new highs for 2017.

There is no lack of fundamentals supporting the move upwards. But as gold traders got used to during recent years, the "fat fingers" smashing gold to the downside during ridiculous trading hours in low liquidity markets has no limits. So I always remember the old saying used by many long time traders, "Markets have the ability to stay irrational longer than our accounts solvent".

Copper Strong, Good News for Chile, Bad News for the US / Commodities / Copper

By: Metals_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund analyzes why the rising copper price is good news for Chile.

Copper is looking strong, apparently due in part to China stockpiling it, and this of course augurs well for the Precious Metals, especially silver, as copper "shows the way," which is why it is known as Dr. Copper. As we can see on its 5-year chart, it has already broken out of a Head-and-Shoulders bottom to enter a bullmarket. Right now it is overbought and has resistance to work its way through, so periods of consolidation are to be expected.

A Very Good Day for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Clive_Maund

What happened yesterday in the gold market was VERY bullish. After looking like it was topping out at its April and June highs, gold surged through them. While we were wary of it topping out here like a lot of traders, we definitely have a handle on the big picture which couldn't be more positive, with the dollar set to crash as it heads towards loss of its reserve currency status, and a slowly dawning awareness among the hordes of fools holding paper denominated gold, that the only thing that matters is physical possession—if you own paper gold, you could find yourself well and truly out in the cold. You can wave your piece of paper in the air and demand delivery, only to be bluntly informed "Sorry, mate—none left—go ask the Chinese if they'll let you have a little".
