Gold and Silver Probability, Predictability, Price and Forecasting / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Investors and observers watching the drama unfold in the Ukraine should not be surprised at the short price action of the precious metals, mainly gold and silver. Throughout the crisis (and as matter of record with practically every other crisis) the metals are driven down by a system that becomes more sophisticated each day.

The ramifications and consequences of events in the Ukraine and Crimea are dire and easy to imagine. These ramifications radiate and dovetail with the multitude of other potential and current hot spots in other energy strategic areas of the world.

Gold & Silver Stocks Breakdown Alert / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion short speculative positions in silver (half) and mining stocks (full) are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

The dollar’s rally and the precious metals’ decline were seen right after comments from the Fed about the planned $10 billion cut in asset purchases. They will now amount to “only” $55 billion per month.

The dollar’s rally and the precious metals’ decline had been already seen in the charts and the Fed comments served as a catalyst.

Gold and Silver - Another Triumphant FOMC Day / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

There was intraday commentary on the Fed Statement here, and some comments on the nature of the Fed's policy error in the US equity charts and review here.

There is an option expiration for stocks on Friday, and I suspect that call option owners of the mining companies and various related metals products got quite a ride today.

Bitcoin - My Two Bits / Commodities / Bitcoin

By: David_Morgan

Some have asked our view on Bitcoin, and my response is simply -- I view these things from a Free Market perspective. I have often stated that "The Market knows more than any of us". I would not want to be labeled a hypocrite by stating my conviction that the "real" free market is capable of making decisions that are in the best interest of masses, and then proceed to disparage Bitcoin through a personal bias.

However, I do have a personal bias as to the basic construct of money, or what I would prefer to think of as "real" money. Here the span of history has given us a very clear message that a fair exchange of value for value is the only ethical way for people to conduct a transaction that is mutually beneficial for both parties.

Crude Oil Price Remains In Consolidation / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term, our opinion): Short. Stop-loss orders for crude oil and WTI Crude Oil (CFD): $102.95.

On Tuesday, crude oil gained 1.60% after information that a pipeline connecting Oklahoma storage with Gulf Coast refineries will be open sooner than previously expected. Thanks to this news, light crude rebounded, finishing the day above $99 per barrel.

China Economy Isn't Slowing Down, It's Buying Up Resources / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Metals_Report

Headlines about a Chinese economic slowdown may get good web traffic, but the real story is that China is buying up uranium and other resources around the world, says Gold Stock Trades writer Jeb Handwerger. Meanwhile, tensions in Russia highlight the massive country's resource dominance in natural gas, oil, uranium, platinum group metals, rare earths and nickel. Handwerger tells The Mining Report that North America is already acting to develop resources that can meet both domestic and international demand—and this global geopolitical uncertainty is an investment opportunity.

Copper Capitulation / Commodities / Copper

By: Ed_Carlson

Copper lost an additional 4.50% last week bringing the three week loss to a total of 9.68% - the biggest three week drop since October 2011.  Thursday’s intra-day low of 2.99 was only 0.03 from my price target of 2.96.

The Coppock Curve (not shown) has reached a level seen at previous bottoms in copper. Given the proximity of last week’s low to my price target and the explosion of volume in the copper ETF, JJC, I’d say that was the bottom of the decline in copper. However, if 2.96 is broken, all bets are off!

Briefly: In our opinion short speculative positions (half) in silver and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

The precious metals sector declined yesterday, which was likely to happen regardless of many factors pointing to a different conclusion, or simply because the precious metals sector was overvalued. The question is if we (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com) think that lower precious metals values are likely:

Should You Buy Stocks Right Now Or Wait? / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Submissions

Boris Dzhingarov writes: Every player in the stock market realizes that we are faced at real time highs. Whenever something like this is visible, it is hard to realize if it is smart to buy stocks or not. You might end up becoming rich over night or poor as the market crashes. While many believe that corrections will soon appear, others state that it is a great time to buy as markets will continue to grow. So, what are the options that we have?

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: “I think the stock market is getting into the overbought territory. Gold is due for a pullback.

While most have forgotten about the virtual currency, Mr. Speculator thinks there’s an opportunity.

What’s Happening in the Copper Market Should Alarm You… / Commodities / Copper

By: DailyGainsLetter

Sasha Cekerevac writes: There is something going on right now in the copper market that should alarm you. Over the past week, the price of copper has plunged, recently hitting a four-year low.

Why should this matter?

Most investors and analysts are placing bets that economic growth is about to re-accelerate globally. Never before has the world been so interlinked, so we must pay attention to what is occurring internationally.

Can Gold and Interest Rates Move Higher at the Same Time? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Matt_Machaj

Can the gold price be fundamentally related to some other economic variables? Can we use those variables successfully in trying to predict the future price of gold? Is gold highly correlated with any of those variables?

Last year a very insightful and interesting working paper was published in the webpages of the National Bureau of Economic Research by Claude Erb and Campbell Harvey. The paper is mostly about gold being perceived as either a safe haven or an inflation hedge. After a while it sparked various discussions about gold not being what it is thought of. And rightly so. As we have already mentioned many times in the Market Overviews, gold is not historically an inflation hedge device which will protect you against possible inflation. Of course the special case for the gold price could be a hyperinflationary scenario.

I’ve shown you several comparison charts with the HUI, GLD and SLV that shows they all tend to breakout at roughly the same time. One can sometimes be stronger than the others but they tend to breakout at the same time. This week was no exception. All three broke out of their consolidation patterns this week. Who would have thunk it.

Gold’s Protection Against Counterparty Risk Is Coming Alive / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: GoldSilverWorlds

History repeats itself. Although it does not repeat exactly in the same way, it rhymes. Consider this, exactly one year ago, on March 16th, Cyprus reached the newswires globally with the announcement of its bank bail-ins.

One year later, the geopolitical escalation between Ukraine and Russia is front stage. Just moments ago, the long awaited referendum in Crimea resulted in an overwhelming 95% of votes to join Russia, according to Reuters. The Western world, even before the closing of the referendum, has officially stated that it denies the results.

Gold Continues Higher as Mining Stocks Outperform / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jesse

Gold continued punching higher after its breakout, but the less talked about story might be the performance of the mining stocks this year, which has been fairly impressive. I have intraday commentary and some relative performance charts on that here.

With silver lagging a bit it looks like a 'safe haven' trade so far, and some of it has to be a relief rally from the incredibly pounding that the metals have taken since the Germans asked for the return of their gold bullion in late 2012. That apparently tipped over someone's punchbowl, and they unleashed the dogs of currency war.
