Long Gold, Short Silver And Exponential Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Each day more conspiracy theories are becoming conspiracy fact. From Enron to Madoff, the NSA to LIBOR, these scandals were "known" years before being acknowledged or embraced by officials or the mainstream media.

What remains unknown is the distortion this "new reality" will have on behavior and ultimately, the market and nowhere has the distortion been allowed to continue for as long as that associated with the Precious Metals.

The UK Fuddles Its Way To Energy Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Andrew_McKillop

THE US PREFERS DEBT CRISIS
For people outside the US its easy to laugh at America’s political system, which is once again showing itself to be hopelessly defective as it trundles the nation towards a possible default on its debt – about a half of which is held by non-Americans. In a development oozing geopolitical significance, China and Japan, America’s top creditors, have already made their stress and displeasure known in no uncertain terms. In the case of Japan, it was forced to step in and offer to pay for the US removal of its Okinawa base dating from World War II, because the US can't afford to remove it. China and other countries including Australia have warned they will increasingly not use dollars in their foreign trade.

The Calm Before the Gold and Silver Precious Metals Storm / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Steve_St_Angelo

The financial hurricane hit the world in 2008 destroying huge swaths of assets, real estate valuations, numerous banks and financial institutions.  As the storm cleared, the Fed and central banks stepped in by flooding the world with money to supposedly assist in dealing with the damage while providing special programs to rid the banks of debris and garbage clogging up their businesses.

After trillions of dollars of so-called monetary assistance, the financial damage appears to be repaired giving the public a false sense of security that the storm has finally passed.  Unfortunately, the world has only dealt with the first part of the storm and is now sitting in the eye of the financial cyclone.

Crude Oil Price Volatility on the Way? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Submissions

Tom Therramus writes: In a previous Oil-Price.net articles published in 2010 and 2011 , I discussed predictive relationships that appear to occur between large, rapid swings in oil price and recessions, stock market crashes and shifts in political polls. Given the economic disruptions that nearly always happen in the aftermath of oil shocks, it seems important to understand what is behind the timing of transient instabilities in the oil markets.

Gold Markets Are Not Efficient, Don't Reflect Fundamentals and Understate Market Value / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

It may be in the reader's mind that somehow all gold markets come together at some point and an exact representation of demand and supply is given by the gold price. The reality is that most markets are entirely separate from each other and reflect the buying and selling in that individual market only.

These markets are only joined by the 'arbitrage' activity, usually only by the professionals in the market -- banks mainly -- who can both electronically and physically move gold from one market to another.

Stay Away from Gold Says Morgan Stanley as India Doubles Silver Imports / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE PRICES in Asia and London for physical gold slipped again Thursday morning, dipping back below $1300 per ounce as politicians in Washington mulled a short-term fix to avoid the $17 trillion debt ceiling triggering a government default in one week's time.

Silver also eased back, trading below $22 per ounce, as world stock markets rose and major government bonds slipped, nudging 10-year US Treasury yields up to 2.70%.

Gold Stock Investors Keep the Best and Dump the Rest / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Greg McCoach, publisher of Mining Speculator newsletter, is not ashamed to admit he has taken a big hit in juniors in the last couple of years. What he has done in response is what he advises all investors to do in this interview with The Gold Report: Get rid of the also-rans and keep and build positions in those companies that have what it takes to gain in multiples when the market recovers. And he suggests six companies that could do just that.

The Gold Report: You wrote recently, "The 2008 crisis will pale in comparison to what is now on the horizon." Given that the 2008 crisis nearly destroyed the world economy, how bad will the next crisis be?

It was announced this evening that President Obama will nominate Janet Yellen as the new Fed Chairman tomorrow, having been denied his first choice of Larry Summers by popular outrage.

Technical Analysis Toolkit for Energy Investors / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: The_Energy_Report

Candlestick, head-and-shoulders, ascending triangle: If these phrases aren't familiar to you, you're missing out on major profit opportunities. Clive Maund, technical trader and editor of CliveMaund.com, shares the tricks of his trade in this interview with The Energy Report. Find out how to recognize potential price swings in commodities and stocks, and discover junior energy companies and ETFs with charts that scream "upside!"

The Energy Report: Energy prices are very sensitive to international events, especially conflicts in the Middle East. Do your charts factor in the periodic crises that impact oil and gas prices as buy and sell moments? How do you factor in inflation and interest rate movements into your calculations about which energy juniors look like good buys at any given time?

Fueling The Gold Fire / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Frank_Holmes

Gold took quite a beating in September, bucking its seasonal average monthly return of 2.3 percent. The political battle between President Barack Obama and Congress, China’s Golden Week, and India’s gold import restrictions likely weighed on the metal.

September’s correction only adds to the negative sentiment toward the precious metal. The assumption from many market pundits is that gold is no longer attractive as an investment. With rising rates and continuing low inflation, U.S. investors believe they have a solid case for selling their holdings.

Gold Mining Stocks Sector Resembles a Somme Battlefield / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical trader Clive Maund, the force behind CliveMaund.com, tells The Gold Report that the prolonged naked shorting of precious metals stocks has been immensely destructive to the sector and has left a battlefield littered with corpses, like the first day of the Battle of the Somme. The silver lining: He believes his charts are showing a Head-and-Shoulders bottom, which could signal an excellent entry point. That is good news for the companies Maund highlights, which he believes are strong enough to survive the onslaught.

Is Crude Oil Price Ready for Further Growth? What Impact on Gold? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Nadia_Simmons

One of the main events of recent days was the first U.S. government shutdown in 17 years. Light crude dropped to a new monthly low at $101.05 on concerns that this event would reduce demand for black gold in the world's largest oil consumer market. In the previous week, the yellow metal also declined and dropped below $1,300 an ounce. Despite this declines, on Wednesday, both commodities rebounded sharply supported by a weaker U.S. dollar as commodities priced in the greenback became less expensive for holders of other currencies. Additionally, in the second half of the previous week we saw similar price action in both cases.

U.S. Government Shutdown Gold Fuel / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

The shutdown, albeit it temporary, of much of the U.S. government has drawn both fierce and mixed emotions. On one hand are those that believe a day without government is day with greater liberty. The other group is upset that government is prevented from repressing the spirits of a free economy. Regardless of which group you find yourself, as an investor one should recognize that the shutdown will increase the availability of the fuel necessary to push the price of Gold higher.

"Congress is playing with fire," Treasury secretary Jack Lew told CNN on Sunday. Because "if the United States government, for the first time in its history, chooses not to pay its bills on time, we will be in default.

Comprehensive Look at the Gold and Silver Stock Indexes / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Rambus_Chartology

In this Report I want to continue looking at the precious metals stock indexes and the consolidation patterns that have been building out since the June low. The reason I’m spending so much time looking at this possible consolidation area is so you can get a feel, in real time, how breakouts and backtest work. There is no better way to learn how the markets work than to watch how things unfold moment by moment. Its easy to say after the fact, yes I should have done this or that, but real time doesn’t give you the luxury of 20/20 hindsight.
