How Strong is Global Gold Demand? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

According to the latest Gold Demand Trends report by the World Gold Council, the world continues to have a strong appetite for the precious metal, despite higher prices in the first-quarter of 2012 when compared to a year earlier.

First-quarter global gold demand totaled 1,097.6 tonnes ($59.7 billion), which represents a 5 percent decrease from 1,150.7 tonnes ($51.3 billion) in the same period last year. Although the demand in tonnes decreased, the decline was not too worrisome considering the average price for an ounce of gold was 22 percent higher this year. Furthermore, the dollar amount of gold invested in the first-quarter was 16 percent higher than last year and only 11 percent below its record of $67.1 billion set in the third-quarter of 2011. In dollar value terms, almost all gold demand posted year-over-year increases.

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul Buitink writes: This conversation between James Turk and John Embry was recorded on Friday 18 May.

They discuss recent volatility and panic in the gold and silver markets. According to John Embry markets are now highly oversold.

Small Cap Gold Resources Investing, An Extraordinary Time to Be in the Driver's Seat / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAaron Kennon, co-founder and CEO of Clear Harbor Asset Management, shares some of his company's trade secrets in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report. Educating yourself is critical before investing, and Kennon suggests questions to ask, what specialized knowledge your adviser should know and why small-cap and junior resource equities are offering surprisingly thrilling returns.

The Gold Report: Clear Harbor Asset Management actively invests in resource equities, and it's doing so during one of the most bearish periods ever for resource equities, particularly for small-cap resource equities. Some institutions are leaving the space altogether while others are reducing their exposure. What are your plans?

Gold Bottom is In, But is it September 2008 or October 2008? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe began the week by making a ballsy prediction about the precious metals complex. We believed a major bottom could happen this week. In the wake of the European debt crisis and potential "credit events," the precious metals became extremely oversold based on a number of metrics. Technically, we saw that Gold and Silver were nearing the December lows which produced a good rally. The gold stocks were nearing the 50% retracement of their 2008-2011 bull move. The combination of an extreme oversold condition and technical support usually produces bottoms. It wasn't a difficult call but putting it on paper was. With the low in, the question now becomes, is this an interim bottom or will it be the major low we initially expected?

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll eyes are on Greece which is heading toward national elections six weeks after the last vote.

Gold Stock Capitulation / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold stocks have been pummeled mercilessly this month, their price action looking almost apocalyptic.  The psychological stress spawned by such extreme weakness is intense, breaking the wills of this sector’s few remaining bulls.  This week their selling cascaded into a full-blown capitulation, a mass surrender by weary investors.  While exceedingly miserable, these events flag major long-term bottoms.

Whales in the Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast April gold investment analysts where excited to see a new institutional player enter the gold market. The University of Texas Investment Management Co. took delivery of nearly $1bn of gold bullion into a New York vault. The reason gold analysts were so interested was because large institutional players had been largely absent from their market and their huge purchasing power had therefore not had its potentially significant positive effect on the gold price.

Gold and Silver Market Manipulation? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Casey, Casey Research writes: For many years now, a meme has been floating around that the prices of gold and silver are being manipulated, which is to say suppressed, by various powers of darkness. This is not an unreasonable assertion. After all, the last thing the monetary powers-that-be want is to see is the price of gold skyrocketing. That would serve as an alarm bell, possibly panicking people all over the world, telling them to get out of the dollar. It's assumed, by those who believe in the theory, that the US Treasury is behind the suppression scheme, in complicity with a half-dozen or so large bullion banks that regularly trade in the metals.

Cycle Low Approaching for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Looking at the big picture for spot gold, we see that the next cycle low is due in about 4 weeks. In other words, the current cycle that started at the end of December is about 85% complete.

That means that the strength off of yesterday's low at $1526.98 not only represented a deep retest of the December 29 low at $1522.48, it likely also satisfies the first coordinate in the next cycle bottoming period ahead of a new up-leg in the larger over-riding bull market in gold.

What are Hedge Funds Doing With Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

At the end of 2011, gold prices finished almost 20 percent below their all-time nominal highs made in September. European concerns and liquidation actions sent investors running towards the U.S. dollar for safety. Sound familiar? While many believed the decade long bull market in precious metals came to an end, several well-known hedge funds saw the pullback as a buying opportunity.
