The Key Factor To Drive Gold and Silver Prices to Extreme Values / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Steve_St_Angelo

The precious metal investors are actually sitting on gold mine, and they don't even know the real reason why this is true.  Many analysts are focusing on the huge amount of debt and fiat money in the system to be invested in gold and silver, but the fundamental root cause continues to go unnoticed.

While the massive amount of debt, derivatives and fiat money are indeed excellent reasons to own the precious metals, they are the mere symptoms and not the disease itself.  The advanced societies of the world were built on an economic system that can only survive if it continues to grow.  Without growth, the $100's of trillions in derivatives and debts would implode -- along with it the Suburban Retail-Commercial-Housing economy.

By: P_Radomski_CFA

On Thursday, the S&P 500 closed at a new high and its intraday record of 1733.45 broke the all-time high set Sept. 19. Over 80 percent of stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange rose. According to FactSet, companies in the S&P 500 index are on track for third-quarter earnings growth of 1.1% from last year. Excluding J.P. Morgan Chase's loss, they would be on pace for 3.6% growth. Please note that at the beginning of earnings season, analysts expected earnings growth of 3%.

Silver Prices and the Flow of Physical / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The ultimate lynch pin for the silver market is the flow of physical metal to support ongoing price suppression. The flow of physical metal is mostly an illusion nearly equal to (and in some ways parallel with) the perceived strength of the paper currencies used to measure its value. Actual or threat of default in physical silver delivery to the COMEX could very likely lead to default across the asset spectrum.

Gold and Silver Today’s Similarities with 1976 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Mark Twain said history doesn’t repeat itself but it rhymes. We often see that in the capital markets. The big decline in Gold this year is reminiscent of that of 1975-1976. Yet, aside from that there are several other similarities between today and 1976. Gold, gold stocks, the stock market and commodities appear to be in a similar position today compared to 1976. We note and discuss the four similarities.

The Jim Rogers View On Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clif_Droke

If October has held any surprises for anyone so far, it has to be the bears. While volatility has been in evidence, the crash that some analysts were predicting has so far failed to materialize.

One reason for this was the increase in short interest leading up to the start of the month. According to short interest data provided by Consensus Inc., bullish sentiment has been declining for the last few months and recently hit a low for the year to date. Investors and advisors alike, it seems, have been growing more bearish and had a less-than-favorable outlook for the market heading into the debt ceiling limit debate.

Gold Resurrection From Financial Disaster, Gold Trade Settlement $7000 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Take a whirlwind tour with graphics and photos. Absorb the images. They are profound, broad, and ugly. The central bank concept is the Matrix in embodiment, but the Eastern nations led by BRICS and G-20 have a key to unlock the USDollar prison. A quick look at the Australian banking system reveals four global banks who own outsized portions, their reach extending to the largest gold producer in Oz as well. Incest is best. The fast decline in Money Velocity is the most convincing proof of the failure of monetary policy. It does not provide stimulus, but rather capital destruction. The foreign dumping of USTreasury Bonds actually accelerated this past summer, amidst the Taper Talk trial balloon offered by the hapless desperate Bernanke Fed. His legacy will be one of disproving his own PhD Thesis, since liquidity in torrents does not repair insolvency, and no traction comes to soaked ground. A grand game of shuffling gold bars has begun, actually accelerated in a final phase.

Gold Price Forecast to Hit $2,500 Before End of 2014 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: Gold is currently extremely out of favor. But anyone who cautions you to let go of your gold is missing an unfathomably huge capital undercurrent - one that's forming right now.

What we're seeing - and what I will show you today - is the unstoppable chain-reaction of conditions that's about to unfold in the gold market.

Palladium, the Other Precious Metal Can Double Your Money Now / Commodities / Palladium

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: At times like this, gold and silver typically grab all the attention... and attract all the "safe" money. But there's another metal that could blast past both of these, virtually overnight.

That's because it has unique physical properties for which there is just no substitute - something its biggest consumers lose quite a bit of sleep over.

Central Banks Gold Holdings - The Bullion Market's Big Issues / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Remember when gold reserves were all the rage for central banks...?

Putting gold into your investment portfolio typically signals a lack of faith in other people. Or at the very least, a healthy question mark.

Yet even as governments everywhere give investors new reasons to find doubts, the trend is no longer for those enormous investors, the world's central banks, to keep buying. Not according to analysis of the latest IMF data.

Silver Price 4 Cycles in 12 Years / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DeviantInvestor

During the past 12 years silver prices have bottomed, rallied sharply, collapsed, and then languished for a year or more.  The patterns are not identical, but there are obvious similarities as shown in the following chart.  (Note that it is a weekly line chart, from close to close, log scale, with high and low bars not shown.  For example, silver might have bottomed on a Wednesday but only the Friday close is plotted.)

Gold Jumps 2.9% on US Debt Downgrade Risk / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

LONDON GOLD moved in a $10 range Wednesday morning around $1281 per ounce – the early August low, down more than 10% from that month's peak – as both the US House and Senate were due to meet in what headline writers called "a last ditch attempt" to resolve the government's debt-limit deadline, set for tomorrow.

US debt will likely be downgraded from its AAA status, the Fitch ratings agency warned yesterday, if the government hits a technical default when it reaches the current debt ceiling of $16.7 trillion on Thursday.

More Evidence of Gold Price Manipulation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: While I avidly follow the actions of central banks to see where the gold bullion prices may be headed next, when I look at them today, their actions are speaking louder than words.

Central banks have pretty much stopped selling gold bullion, which is very important. In 1999, a number of central banks in Europe formed an alliance and agreed that they would not sell more than 400 tonnes of gold bullion per year. The agreement was called the Central Bank Gold Agreement (CBGA). In 2004, the CBGA was renewed again; this time the limit was 500 tonnes. Once again, it was renewed for another five years in 2009, and the limit is back to the sale of no more than 400 tonnes of gold bullion per year.

Who is right? Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger and many more say you shouldn’t own gold. Ray Dalio, David Einhorn, Jim Rogers, John Paulson, George Soros, and I (among many others) own some gold—but that doesn’t mean you should own it.

Disappointing Gold Price Hits 3-Month Low on U.S. Debt Limit / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The WHOLESALE price of gold bounced hard Tuesday lunchtime in London from new 3-month lows, regaining $10 per ounce from $1255 as European shares rose but US stock futures pointed lower.

The Dollar rose, knocking almost 1 cent off the Euro, as word spread of an apparent US political deal to avert technical default at the debt limit's deadline on Thursday.

"A rogue does not laugh in the same way that an honest man does; a hypocrite does not shed the tears of a man of good faith. All falsehood is a mask; and however well made the mask may be, with a little attention we may always succeed in distinguishing it from the true face." Alexandre Dumas

It was capping all the way today as stocks rallied back from overnight lows to close on the highs, while gold and silver were pushed down and went out near the lows.

Crude Oil Price Change of Trend or Just a Correction? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

The previous week was quite hard for the oil bulls. Light crude lost almost 2% and slipped to its lowest level since July 3. When we take a closer look at the chart of crude oil we clearly see that the price of light crude remains in the narrow range between $100 and $104 per barrel. Since the beginning of the month oil bulls and bears have pushed it above or below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level, however, neither the buyers nor the sellers have had enough strength to win and trigger another bigger move.

QE Tapering and Natural Resource Myths / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Casey_Research

The Gold Report: Why is the theory of tapering or turning quantitative easing (QE) off a myth, and who really benefits from QE?

Rick Rule: My view—as an investor, not an economist—is that QE is misnamed. I think it's another way of saying counterfeiting. It exists in large measure because we're running a trillion-dollar deficit and, while we can hoodwink investors into funding two-thirds of it, we need to print away the last third.

Gold - Goldman Sachs Strikes Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clif_Droke

Call it the revenge of the gold bears. Jeffrey Currie, the Goldman Sachs chief commodity analyst whose name inspires dread on all gold bugs who hear it, has made yet another bearish prediction for the gold price.

Last week Mr. Currie stated that gold is a "slam dunk" sell because of his expectation that the U.S. economy will extend its recovery after Congress extends the debt ceiling. The price of gold, as if on cue, promptly declined after Currie's remarks were widely published and it appears that gold is indeed poised for another leg down.

Why Peak Oil Was Wrong, Is US Economic Growth Over? / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: John_Mauldin

After last week's discussion of the Affordable Care Act, it would be easy to drift off into all of the negative consequences of the current problems in Washington DC. There's just so much negative energy every time you turn on the TV that it simply drains you. I am well aware of what's happening and why, and yet I still find myself weary simply from the process of trying to follow what's happening. If I feel that way, it's no wonder the polls show that the general public's attitude is "a plague on all your houses." Of course, the snafus always seem to get resolved, but you just wonder how worthwhile all the drama is.
