Gold Forecast $3,700 By 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Krauth writes: It's now two years and two billion dollars later...

And in many ways, we're right back where we started with the same President, and a house divided.

For investors, all the uncertainty this situation brings to the fiscal cliff and its impending tax increases and spending cuts are likely to fuel plenty of volatility for the next several months.

Gold and Silver Prices Set to Rocket Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that the presidential election is over we can hopefully look forward to some respite from the perpetual bombardment dished out by both the Republican and the Democratic Party machines. President Obama has been re-elected so we can expect four more years of a Washington centric controlled economy with a rolling program of borrow, print, spend and pretend, similar to the last four years. The so called fiscal cliff will not be met head on, the approach will be one of extending some of the tax cuts now in place and a watered down strategy of fiscal prudence. Budget ceilings will come and go and the deficit will grow ever larger as the economic recovery will be considered far too fragile for any serious attempts at financial reform. All in all nothing has really changed, the slow motion train crash will continue and the fallout will affect everyone.

iNeed Rare Earths / Commodities / Rare Earths

By: Anthony_David

Smaller, faster, smarter. Technological advances have reduced the size of electronic devices whilst endowing them with ever more speed, intelligence, and functionality making them ever more personal and indispensible.

Rare earths play a huge role in almost all electronics and green technologies today, and judging by the unprecedented pace at which the world is embracing smartphones and tablets, our dependence on rare earths is rising exponentially. Such dependence certainly won’t wane until an alternative is discovered.

Is Copper a Strategic Metal? / Commodities / Copper

By: Anthony_David

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf your country’s main goal is to develop long term electrical infrastructure and distribution, then yes, Copper is certainly a strategic metal.  However, as a reflection of the sluggish economy, Copper dropped to a low of $7,930 per metric ton on the London Metal Exchange (LME). And the International Copper Study Group (ICSG) predicts that, despite the slowdown, the world demand for refined copper in 2012 will exceed supply by around 400,000 metric tons making it the third consecutive year of production deficit.

Obama Election Victory Implications for U.S. Dollar and Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Axel_Merk

Alia iacta est! As networks projected an Obama victory, there was a sea of red: the dollar is down versus currencies and gold. As pundits will shift the focus on the fiscal cliff, the market appears firmly focused on what may be more relevant: an Obama win favors a continuation of the current easy money policy. Had Romney won, Fed Chair Bernanke would have become a lame duck, undermining the credibility of the Fed's commitment to keep interest rates low way beyond the end of Bernanke's term in early 2014. With this uncertainty removed, the Fed's increased emphasis on employment is here to stay. The market rewards this certainty by bidding up gold, selling off the dollar versus all major currencies.

Bullish Case for Silver and Even More Bullish Case for Silver Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe summarized our previous commentary on gold and the US Presidential Elections by stating that based on Friday's decline, it seems that the bottom in the precious metals sector might have just been reached. Based on today's rally in gold and silver, it seems that it was really the case.

Before moving on to the silver market and its technical details, let's discuss the idea of verifying if gold held in New York is as pure as it should be.

Be Prepared For Post Election Gold and Silver Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are experiencing a pullback in precious metals and mining stocks as investors react momentarily to a purported better than expected jobs report. It is reported that the unemployment rate increased despite adding 171,000 new jobs.

The numbers look abysmal. However, the media reports that the economy is picking up and no more QE will be needed. Hence, precious metals are hammered. We have seen this before where investors are shaken out during corrections while the long term gold and silver players add more on pullbacks.

Report Raises Questions About Central Bank Gold Holdings / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: John_Browne

For years I have cautioned that changes in the ownership of gold held in the vaults of key central banks around the globe may not have been accurately reported. A report issued last month in Germany has once again brought these issues to the fore. In today's environment of rampant money creation and questioning of central bank activities, such uncertainty is bound to spark the curiosity of an increasing number of investors.

Gold Black Hole Friday? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Guess the question is obvious: What the @#$% happened to Gold Friday?

The morning actually seemed to start off fine. U.S. reported on the number of jobs added last month. It was a good number, +171,000. That was the second month in a row with something good in this report. With the U.S. mired in the longest running period of high unemployment since the last great failure of Keynesian economics, the Great Depression, this report should have been welcome news. Instead, Gold, and most other markets, seemed to plunge into a black hole.

Why Big Oil Is to Blame for High Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: While oil prices have fallen to the $85.00 level, the price of gasoline continues to be stubbornly high, and you can blame this on the greed of the big oil companies.

Despite the decline in oil prices, it still costs me over $100.00 to fill up my gas-guzzling SUV.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the price of regular gasoline averaged $3.57 per gallon across the U.S. as of October 29, which is still well below the historical average U.S. high of $4.11 per regular gallon reached on July 18, 2008.

Silver Demand - Money Versus Commodity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The silver market often seems to be like burning both ends of a candle at the same time. Basically, somewhere in the middle the two flames are bound to meet and cause an explosion in price.

Many long term precious metal investors have wondered whether silver is just another commodity component of the CCI, or if it will eventually reassert itself as money?

The Great Precious Metals Managed Retreat / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany observers, notably GATA, have characterized the more than decade long run up in the precious metals markets as a managed retreat orchestrated by the big bullion banks.

These banks typically profit by using their large transaction size and deep pockets when the market is vulnerable to induce substantial price variations, often by triggering stop loss orders placed by short term speculators.
