Gold Price Rally Marked by Short Covering / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

If there was ever any doubt that the majority of buying by the hedge fund category in the gold market over the past 3-4 weeks has been of the nature of short covering, this week’s COT should put that theory to rest.

Since the third week of July, the hedge fund category alone has covered or lifted 40,000 short positions. That against the addition of only 16,000 or so new long positions over the same time span. By a better than 2:1 margin, hedge funds have been covering shorts, not instituting fresh purchases of gold.

Gold Shares Lows are Near / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Aden_Forecast

As most of you know, many mining companies have fallen by over 90%. The HUI Gold Bugs index has fallen 83% since its 2011 peak in the second longest bear market in gold shares on record. It's fallen twice as much as gold's bear market loss of 43%.

But looking at the next two charts, both are saying the lows may already be in.

Silver Sold, then Squeezed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Alasdair_Macleod

While gold consolidated its recent gains, silver was sold down this week along with other metals and energy. The whole commodity complex suffered badly in the stock-market fall-out, before a sharp bear-squeeze across commodity markets pushed silver, copper and oil sharply higher yesterday (Thursday). Silver is now down 6.8% on the year and gold 5%. Prices were slightly firmer this morning in Asian trade, before the European opening.

Einstein, Physics, Gold and The Formula To End Economic Decay / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: GoldCore

We continue to have a wonderful dialogue with and frequent editorial submissions from readers and clients. Today, we have a thought provoking and important article that should greatly contribute to the debate on the merits of continuing to use artificial money.  David Bryan draws on the genius of Einstein and uses science as the basis for policies that would end economic decay and rejuvenate local and national economies and indeed the global economy.

Currency Wars Detonate; Gold Refuses to Budge / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Sol_Palha

The person who lives by hope will die by despair.
Italian Proverb

Over the years we have frequently stated that every that every major bull market will experience at least one back breaking correction. Usually the correction culminates with a 50% pullback from the highs. In the case of Gold, this would equate to a pullback to $960.  The precious metal’s sector had a splendid lope that began in 2003 and ended with spectacular dash in 2011.  To think that the Gold bull would continue unabated would be to put it mildly wishful thinking.  Sadly, many Gold bugs opted for this line of thought, rather than dealing with reality; the reality being that it was time for the entire sector to let out some steam.

Gold: Bullish in Real Terms, Bearish in Nominal Terms / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Last week when we covered rebound targets in the precious metals sector we also discussed the importance of Gold’s performance in real terms. It can be a leading indicator for the sector at key turning points. Since then precious metals sold off in aggressive fashion alongside global equity markets. However, Gold against equities gained materially. This is something to keep an eye on as it hints that a trend change is boiling under the surface.

Why a Fed Rate Hike Could Be a Blessing for Gold Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: The_Gold_Report

Like a true contrarian, Gold Newsletter publisher Brien Lundin looks beyond the headlines to understand what is really moving precious metals prices. He has concluded that the mainstream media may have it all wrong. Suspected anchors on the gold price such as an interest rate increase and devaluation of the yuan could actually be a rallying cry for commodities, he says in this interview with The Gold Report. And, he points to a baker's dozen of companies poised to take off when the arrows turn.

Keep Your Eye On the Gold and Silver Bear / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight we’re going to look at the precious metals complex and get focused again as this is the area we need to concentrate our efforts right now IMHO. All the volatility in the stock markets has many taking their eyes off the ball of what may turn out to be the trade of a lifetime for some of you. I’m just as guilty as the next person trying to play the stock markets looking for that big trade that is so elusive right now. The stock markets are like a veg o matic chopping up both the bulls and the bears alike.

I have made a couple of small trades trying to catch one of the swings but the volatility is very hard to deal with. Back in 2000 after the markets topped I began to play the short side as bear markets can be very profitably if you can catch them just right. What I learned back then was you had to be dead on the money with your entry points because the volatility would knock you out before the move you were looking for actually took place. It looks easy in hindsight when you view the long term charts of bear markets but trading them in real time is a whole different ballgame.

Crude Oil Price One-day Rebound or Something More? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): Short positions with a stop-loss order at $45.32 and profit-take order at $35.72 are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

On Tuesday, crude oil gained 4.15% after China's central bank cut interest rates. Thanks to this news, light crude reversed and invalidated Monday’s breakdown under the support line. Despite this move, the commodity still remains under the barrier of $40. Will it stop further improvement in the coming days?

Chinese Medicine not Impressing Dr Copper / Commodities / Copper

By: Dan_Norcini

Dr. Copper apparently does not approve of the prescription ordered by the Chinese authorities to stem the slowdown in that nation, namely another 25 basis point interest rate reduction and a lowering of bank reserve requirements.

The red metal cannot sustain any upside action for long before sellers emerge to whack it again.

Gold and silver were hit in the classic contract dump early on in the New York Trade.

Surprisingly the US dollar also fell. Stocks tried to stage a rally but faded badly and fell into the close.

Stock Market and Gold Mining Shares Update / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Brad_Gudgeon

Most people did not expect what happened on Monday morning.  The futures traders took the ES down to 1830 with the cash market stabilizing at SPX 1867 in just a few minutes time.  Clive Maund gets some kudos here calling for the Dow Industrials to be down a potential 1000 points Monday, but as I recall, he believed it would be a public panic, not what just happened with the futures (Good call Clive!).

This was first time I’ve seen my TLC indicator be off a day as it was calling for a Friday bottom.  The Gann cycle low was maxed out at 16+4 TD’s from the July 27 low and the 4 TD low part of that cycle was due no later than early Monday, which is what happened.

The Gold and Silver “Shortage”? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: David_Morgan

By Chris Marchese : A pet peeve of mine is when an article is published talking about a shortage in silver or gold. Recently, we have seen an increase in articles claiming that there is a precious metals shortage simply because both the U.S. mint and Royal Canadian Mint ran out of blanks. Both government mints predetermine a rough amount they will mint at the start of the year. When demand surges, a “bottleneck” can occur and this has happened in the past.

Why is this such a pet peeve? Because a shortage in a specific silver product does NOT mean a shortage in the raw material. It would be like saying there is a rice shortage if Rice Krispies stopped being produced momentarily.

The three-volume work (which at one point I suggested in an academic article was two volumes longer than necessary) is full of personal anecdotes. One of them is particularly relevant these days.

Second Chance To Buy Cheap Gold Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Gary_Savage

I want to take a special look at gold and the dollar this morning and see if we can’t alleviate some of the fears created yesterday by the big move down in mining stocks. As I’ve noted before it’s not uncommon for big money to try to run stops to enter at the cheapest price possible. We actually saw GDXJ run the stops last winter right before a second daily cycle tacked on some very big gains in the metals sector. We may see that again in the mining sector over the next few days, possibly as oil puts in its final three-year cycle low.

Gold Facts and Gold Speculations / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

Gold was valuable 3,000 years ago and will be valuable 3,000 years from now.  But can you say the same for dollars, euros, yen, or pounds?

Gold maintains its value (on average) over centuries.  Can you expect similar longevity for debt based fiat currencies that are managed by politicians and created with printing presses or computers in central banks?

Saudis Could Face An Open Revolt At Next OPEC Oil Meeting / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

OPEC next gathers December 4 in Vienna, just over a year since Saudi Oil Minister Ali Al-Naimi announced at the previous OPEC winter meeting the Saudi decision to let the oil market determine oil prices rather than to continue Saudi Arabia’s role of guarantor of $100+/bbl oil.

Despite the intense financial and economic pain this decision has inflicted on Saudi Arabia, its fellow OPEC members, and other oil producers, the Saudis have given no indication they plan to alter course. In fact, Saudis have downplayed the impact of lower prices on their country, asserting that the kingdom has the financial wherewithal to withstand lower oil prices.

Gold and Silver: Heading for a “Blue Screen of Death” Event? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: David_Morgan

David H. Smith writes: For personal computer users who by choice or circumstance, find themselves using a version of the Microsoft Windows operating software family, a dreaded condition known as the “Blue Screen of Death” (BSoD) is a seldom occurring, yet ever-present possibility. Wikipedia defines it as being caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware, such as faulty memory, power supply issues, overheating of components or hardware running beyond its specification limits.
