China Loves West’s 99 Fine Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Richard_Mills

According to Bloomberg, whose calculations were based on Hong Kong customs data, net gold imports into China more than doubled in the first half of 2013 to 493 metric tons, up from roughly 239 tons over the same period in 2012.

The China Gold Association said gold consumption in China jumped 54 percent to 706.36 metric tons in the first six months of 2013.

Bloomberg reported takeovers and asset purchases by China's gold mining companies reached a record $2.24 billion this year, up considerably from 2012's record of $1.96 billion worth of M&A activity.

Gold and the Return of Global Turmoil / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clif_Droke

The last several weeks have seen a return of all the ingredients for a gold rally, from an "oversold" technical condition which sparked a short-covering rally to a spike in Treasury yields which caused investors to look for safe haven investments. Gold has benefited from the rising interest rates as well as the weakness in the U.S. dollar. Now a new set of factors is playing into gold's favor....

Emergency Crisis - First Finance, Then Debt, What Next? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

If Syria is to blame for this run, then the world's in very big trouble...

SO JUST like that, there were no sellers in the gold or silver markets. It's been buyers only amongst BullionVault users this week.

New account openings were strong this week too, the greatest number since the April price crash in fact. Cash deposits were also sharply higher, the heaviest since end-June – the week gold and silver hit their second big slump, and bargain hunters on BullionVault got just the crash they wanted.

Syria Attack, Pipeline Politics, OPEC & the U.S. Dollar / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Syria is about the last gasp for the Petro-Dollar, the emergence of energy pipeline geopolitics, the rise of the NatGas Coop, the new dominance of Russian Gazprom, the eclipse of OPEC, the fall of the house of Saud, and a grand adjustment process in global commerce and banking. Refer to trade settlement outside the USDollar and diversification away from USTreasury Bond reserves management. It took some time to realize it, but the Cyprus bank incident was a misdirected attack against Gazprom. It failed. The entire Arab Spring movement, an ambitious disruptive project waged with foolhardy ambitions, has turned on itself. Egypt fell, its US puppet discharged. The entire North African region will be in flames soon. The USGovt interfered with a grand industrialization project for European industry, to be placed on North Africa intended to take advantage of cheaper labor, available minerals, nearby resources, and easy shipping. The resentment of Europe will show up in the future. The Middle East and Persian Gulf region is shifting its salute to Russia & China, as the noisy sectarian battles have been a common fixture since long ago. Bahrain has erupted. Saudi is clamping down and converting into an Islamic police state to create the Iran-Saudi repressive bobsey twins. Chaos is the longstanding objective of the USGovt in foreign policy infection, no change in decades.

What Do Gold Mining Stocks Tell Us About Gold Price’s Future Moves? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Yesterday, gold stopped a five-day rally that had pushed it to its highest since mid-May, and lost some of its safe-haven appeal as the chance of imminent U.S. military strikes against Syria seemed to diminish, and investors booked profits. We let our subscribers know our thoughts on that topic and we wrote that we didn't expect any military intervention in the next few days and it seemed to us that markets had overestimated the probability of such intervention taking place in the near term.

The Shadowy Web of Collateral and War / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

It seems that few people have yet realized the possible scenario that a repo market failure will result in a liquidity freeze that can then spark off a full scale financial collapse.

The financial and economic system seems so vulnerable to just in time delivery on virtually everything that such a failure will cause social chaos in the short term and severe damage to confidence in the longer term.

Gold, Silver and Unsuccessful Parasites / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Successful parasites do not kill their hosts, yet the currently parasitic banking system seems to be unsustainable for this very reason.

Like an ineffective parasite, the huge international banks have sucked the juice from and distorted their hosts — the economy, the financial system, and even the culture — to the point of a sudden collapse potentially occurring.

In an interview with Reuters on Tuesday, Rogers said "oil and gold will go much, much higher" due to a "market panic."

New Contagion Brewing Means Gold New Mega-Highs Possible / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Gold could see new mega-highs according to two prominent international bank economists by Michael J. Kosares

While all eyes have been on Syria, what might turn to be a much more insidious problem for the world economy has been bubbling below the surface – and for the most part out of the public eye – in what we used to call the “third world.” In the end, what amounts to a new currency and debt debacle in the emerging world could undermine the world’s stock markets, including Wall Street, the value of those country’s currencies as well as the debt denominated in those currencies. The list includes China, India, Brazil, Argentina, Indonesia, South Africa, Russia and Mexico – just to name a few (and we won’t even get into the problems in the southern rim of Europe). Some see the developing situation as a repeat of the 1996-1997 Asian contagion, but it goes beyond the Pacific Rim, as just noted, to include most of the southern hemisphere.

Gold and Silver Drop as Syrian Military Strike Delayed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

BENCHMARK physical gold prices retreated 2% from yesterday's 3-month high of $1433 per ounce early Thursday in London, hitting $1405 per ounce before rallying $10 and shrugging off a stronger-than-expected revision to US economic growth.

World stock markets rose for the first time in four sessions, whilst crude oil eased 0.5% lower from this week's new 6-month highs.

Gold Price is Going Higher Whether or Not FED Tapers / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jason_Hamlin

The Federal Reserve is in a very tough position. Despite unprecedented amounts of stimulus, GDP growth is anemic, unemployment remains historically high, durable goods orders have plunged and rising rates are harming the housing rebound. If this is all that can be accomplished with record low rates and trillions in quantitative easing, the underlying health of the economy must be magnitudes worse than believed.

Gold, Silver and Mining Stocks Flash Short Sell Signal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

It has been a bumpy ride for precious metal investors over the past couple of years and it unfortunately I do not think its over just yet.

The good news is that the bottom has likely been put in for gold, silver and gold miners BUT the recent rally in these metals and miner looks to be coming to an end. While we could see another pop in price over the next week or so the price, volume and momentum see to be stalling out.

Another Chance Coming to Buy Gold Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Last week we wrote: “Technically, the gold stocks continue to follow a typical post-bottom rebound path and look very strong. The daily RSI of GDX is at a 10-month high as GDX consolidates around $30. We’d love to see GDX consolidate for a few weeks but it may break above $31 within days.” On Monday and Tuesday GDX traded up to $31 but failed to close above it. Tuesday we saw a nasty bearish reversal which confirms that GDX over the very short-term will correct and consolidate its gains. This is good news as it will alleviate the overbought condition and put the market in position to launch a sustainable breakout around the end of September.

Gold Mining Stocks Write-Downs: Death Sentence or Opportunity? / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

For many primary gold producers, Q213 was a breathtakingly bad quarter. It wasn't so much the massive drop in earnings many reported—those had been, for the most part, expected—but the so-called "impairment charges" announced.

(Impairment is the opposite of appreciation, that is, the reduction in quality, strength, amount, or value of an asset. "Impairment charges" means that a company reduces or "writes down" the value of the assets on its books.)

By: Adrian_Ash

The WHOLESALE price of gold touched its highest level since mid-May in London Wednesday morning, trading briefly at $1433 per ounce before edging $10 lower as European stock markets extended yesterday's losses.

US crude oil added another 1.2% to hit 2-year highs above $110 per barrel, while silver prices touched $25 per ounce – the best level since this April's gold crash, when the white metal dropped $4 in two days.
