Gold, Silver Prices and Mining Stocks Sector Have Not Bottomed Yet / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

As a bull on both gold and silver I do expect that this sector will shine once again, hopefully in the not too distant future. However we are still of the opinion that this gold bull market remains in a bear phase for now. The timing of market directional changes is critical to the success of any investment. We all know that it is impossible to pick the very top or the very bottom of the market and so enter and exit the market with absolute perfection. That just does not happen, but it is incumbent on us to try and get as close as possible to these turning points in order to maximise our profits.

Gold, Silver Prices and Mining Stocks About To Sell Off Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

A couple weeks ago I posted these same charts talking about the pending breakout (in either direction) with silver, gold and mining stocks. Fast forwarding to this week its clear this sector continues its struggle to rally. Key support levels are now being tested and if these levels fail prepare for a sharp correction with mining stocks showing the most downside potential of roughly 25% for the GDX ETF trading fund.

Could Bad Data Be Depressing the Gold Price? Eric Sprott Says GFMS Stats Are Flawed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Demand for gold bars, coins and jewelry increased to multiyear highs in the first half of 2013, but was offset by outflows from exchange-traded funds, according to the World Gold Council, which produces a quarterly Gold Demand Trends Report and recently released the first-ever Direct Economic Impact of Gold Report. Sprott Securities founder Eric Sprott questioned those statistics in a call-out on his website. He figures that the demand for gold is actually 3,000 tons more than the annual supply, and therefore the gold price will soon be much higher. What is the true demand for gold? How much is really available in any given year? Does supply and demand really determine the price of gold anymore? The Gold Report called Sprott and John Gravelle, global and Canadian mining leader for PwC, which produced the report for the World Gold Council, to find out.

Why is Crude Oil Overpriced? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

POLITICAL RISK VERSUS ENERGY ECONOMICS
Expressed in terms of price for 1 barrel equivalent of oil energy at present market prices, world coal costs about $14.50 per barrel FOB (before transport costs), US domestic natural gas costs about $20.50 per barrel, while European and Asian natural gas is priced at more than $65 per barrel, but will surely and certainly decline in the next 3 – 4 years.

Bearish Bets on Gold Hiked Aggressively But Prices Move Sideways / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

LONDON prices for gold reflected subdued dealing Monday morning, slipping 0.9% to $1279 by lunchtime as silver and other commodities also dropped but major government bond price edged higher.

European shares drifted lower as well, but the MSCI World index was pulled up to 6-year highs by a sharp rise in Chinese equities.

COMEX Gold Claims per Ounce Hit 69 to 1 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

Nothing much of note in the metals today as they continued to bump into overheard resistance.

There was little movement of gold bullion in or out of the Comex warehouses.

I had asked Nick Laird of Sharelynx to check his figures and it turns out that the 'claims per ounce' from yesterday were a bit light at 63. That did seem very little for a 51,000 ounce change in registered inventory.

Gold And Silver When Fundamentals Fail And Charts Prevail / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

There is a decline in the number of reads in our articles that do not provide a fully developed "fundamental" story about why gold and silver should be much higher in price, [but are not]. Relying upon charts to more accurately capture the developing "story" does not capture the imagination of as many readers, for whatever reason. We attribute this to Confirmation Bias where a reader wants to read an article that confirms his/her beliefs The accuracy/validity/truth may or may not be true, but is satisfies an emotional need for affirmation.

Will Gold follow Gold and USD Higher? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

In our most recent article on gold, USD and Euro Indices we wrote that the outlook for the yellow metal was bearish just as the outlook for the Euro Index and just as it was bullish for the USD Index. At this time - since all of the above-mentioned markets moved in the opposite way - you might be wondering if we are sticking to the above analysis. In the medium-term, we do, but not in the short run. In fact, earlier this week we told our subscribers to cash in the profits from the short positions as the bullish correction was quite likely to be seen.

Why the Sell-Off in Gold Bullion Is Based on Faulty Logic / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: Over the last few days, gold bullion in U.S. dollars has been under selling pressure yet again. With the price of gold bullion pulling back, one obvious question arises: what’s the appropriate investment strategy at this point?

Many are pointing to talk that the Federal Reserve is about to reduce its monetary stimulus, and this has led some investors to adjust their investment strategy by reducing their gold bullion holdings.

Gold - Will it Drop to $1000 or Was a Bottom Formed in Summer? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Toby_Connor

The blogosphere seems to have gotten the idea that I am predicting $1000 as a sure thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. I've said many times in the past that I think there are parties trying to push gold to that level. Will they succeed is anyone's guess, but I think they are clearly trying. I also believe that the bear market this past year was an artificial and manufactured move.

Gold Bullion - Indian Paying Equivalent $1,565 Per Ounce For Physical Gold Bullion / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

Hitherto no difficulty had been experienced by any class in procuring specie for their wants. But this system could not long be carried on without causing a scarcity. The voice of complaint was heard on every side, and inquiries being instituted, the cause was soon discovered. The council debated long on the remedies to be taken, and [John] Law, being called on for his advice, was of the opinion, that an edict should be published, depreciating the value of coin five per cent below that of paper.

USD as a Percentage of Global Reserves Down, Then Up. What's next for Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

When the euro arrived on the scene, it took over around 32% of global foreign exchange reserves from the USD, with the tacit approval of the U.S. This dropped the USD's percentage of global reserves from 95% to around 63%. Since then [2000] its percentage of reserves dropped from 63% to 53% and now has risen back to 56%.

Arrival of the Euro

When the Euro arrived on the scene, gold continued to be held -- with the exception of the amounts sold under the Washington Agreement and the Central Bank Gold Agreements -- alongside the Yen, Sterling and the Swiss Franc.

Crude Oil Stock Index and Its Relationship with the Stock Market / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Nadia_Simmons

In our previous commentary, we took a look at the situation in crude oil from the long- and the short-term perspectives to check whether they confirm the indications from the medium-term picture or not. As we wrote in the summary:

(...) light crude reached the declining long-term support line, which may trigger a bigger pullback. Additionally, it bounced off the lower border of the declining trend channel in terms of daily closing prices, which may result in further growth in the coming days (similarly to what we saw in the previous month).

Investor Psychology Can Trump Gold Stocks Market Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

With gold and silver equities markets as volatile as ever and assets of many miners valued at pennies on the dollar, Eric Muschinski, editor of the Gold Investment Letter, believes being on the right side of the emotional curve when investing is critical. He pays as much attention to investor psychology as he does to market fundamentals. In this interview with The Gold Report, Muschinski explains how investors can use knowledge of market cycles to their advantage and profiles undervalued companies flying under the radar.

The Gold Report: You have published a recent e-letter for investors called "Fighting Battles to Win the War." Please sum up the major themes of the issue, especially around how small-cap stock investors can combat impatience and deal with the emotional stress associated with temporary market downturns.

Platinum ‘Rich Man’s Gold’ is Palladium: Tomorrow’s? / Commodities / Palladium

By: David_Morgan

The Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) are a family comprised of 6 metals - platinum, palladium rhodium, iridium, osmium and ruthenium. But for our purpose today (and for most investors), we are only interested in the first two - platinum and palladium.

Platinum is usually more expensive than gold. But for well over a year, it actually traded for less - substantially less. One could purchase a troy ounce of platinum for $150 or so less than a troy ounce of gold. (As a side note, during the time of this unusual inverted pricing relationship, in expectation of the "norm" reestablishing itself, I placed a long platinum/short gold spread trade. Of course, this did indeed take place and I was able to make a good profit on the trade.)
