Petrodollar Recycling And The Gold Switch / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Andrew_McKillop

PRAVDA WILL SAY ITS THE COLLAPSE OF CAPITALISM
President Nixon's head of the Federal Reserve, Arthur Burns vigorously opposed the Nixon plan to “close the gold window”, decided at Camp David through 13-15 August 1971 because Burns saw it as admitting defeat in the struggle against inflation. He said the policy mix including a “free float for the dollar” would not stimulate jobs, or prevent wage demands. The dollar would be weakened further driving up inflation - to the delight of the Soviets.“What the boys around the White House fail to see,” Burns scribbled in his diary, “is that the country now faces an entirely new problem—sizable inflation in the midst of recession.”  He was overruled by Nixon.

Signs That the Silver Price Has Bottomed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jason_Hamlin

I have not written a public article in several months. This is mainly because I have been waiting for a buying opportunity to develop in precious metals. As a fairly aggressive investor with a high risk tolerance, I took a stab when silver originally dropped to technical support around $27. I have a few small cuts from attempting to catch the proverbial falling knife, but I was quick to release and walked away relatively unscathed.

Even Oil Executives Know Crude Oil Prices are Too High! / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

WTI is Tracking S&P 500 last Month

It is obvious that the oil market is out of touch with the fundamentals of a sluggish global macro-economic picture, and surging domestic and international oil production right now. The problem is that Oil, and especially WTI which is being tied to the S&P 500 bullishness, (i.e., stock market at all-time highs) is completely manipulated by hedge funds and investment banks and is harmful to the economy, businesses and consumers.

Continuous Commodity Index Points to Rally in Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

During the recent weeks we have seen commodities especially precious metals continue to drop in value. Market participant sentiment has become more bearish on commodities and couple that with a rising dollar it’s no wonder why we continue to see commodities as a whole fall in value.

Money has been flowing out of bonds at record levels this summer telling us most of market participants are feeling bullish on the stock market. This shift in sentiment of the masses are typical as they move their money from the risk on safer assets (bonds & commodities) and rotate into risk-on assets like stocks. While this is a bearish (contrarian sign) stocks could easily continue to rally for an extended period of time and possibly several more months before they actually top out.

Why is Gold & Silver, the Precious Metals Complex Falling ? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Rambus_Chartology

A subscriber asked me this week why the precious metals complex has been falling and if the charts could show the reason why. From the Chartology perspective it’s really a no brainier why this sector has fallen on hard times.

Many of you may recall the bull market that occurred, in the stock markets, back in the 1990′s which was a traders dream come true. During that time gold and the precious metals stocks were not even on my radar screen as I was too busy trading the tech stocks to even consider the precious metals sector. I couldn’t tell you the price of gold or what a junior miner was. All I knew was that the action was in the tech stocks and that is all that mattered to me at the time. I know a lot of you folks were trading the precious metals stocks in the 90′s and by looking at a long term chart for gold or the XAU, which has the most history, those were some lean years to say the least.

Gold versus the money supply / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Alasdair_Macleod

In a recent article I introduced the concept of allowing for the increased quantity of aboveground gold and the expansion of the quantity of dollar currency over time when trying to value gold. The purpose of this article is to explain why such an obvious adjustment is rarely contemplated and why it should be applied.

The reason no one adjusts the dollar quantity is we want to think of the dollar as having a constant value when we buy assets or goods. We describe prices of goods as rising or falling, and never the currency falling or rising. When we construct an index of house prices or stocks we do not take into account the debasement of the currency.

Gold Price Could Turn Bearish This Week / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: ForexPros

Gold recovered nicely over the last two weeks; this was expected on account of the completed five wave decline in black wave 3. If our count is correct, then the current pull-back is corrective wave 4, part of a larger incomplete decline in wave 5) of C. Note that now we can already count three legs up from the lows, which means that market could turn bearish very soon, ideally from around the 1300-1310 resistance area. However, only price can confirm a downtrend, which means a minor impulse down back to 1200. If this occurs, we will look for a decline in the 5th wave towards 1100 level or even lower. For now, the critical region stands at 1336 as wave 4 cannot trade into a wave one territory.

Gold Price Dead Cat Bounce – Fade The Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

Gold prices have enjoyed a welcome bounce from $1200 to $1280 recently, which has some perma-bulls bringing out the famous “this is the bottom” LP yet again, a record which has been played so many times this year it must be getting close to wearing out. Whilst this minor bounce in gold is to be expected with Bernanke cooling the markets aggressive tapering expectations, a major rally is not sustainable since the Fed is not embarking on any new quantitative easing in the foreseeable future.

Is the Inflationary Phase Finally Here? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Toby_Connor

Last year I correctly spotted the three year cycle low in the CRB. I must admit the retest of that bottom has taken much longer and been far deeper than I thought it would be. However, I think the retest is over. It looks like the CRB has put in its final yearly cycle low for 2013, and that low has held above the 2012 trough.

As I have noted in the chart below, we did see a positive divergence at this year's bottom as the dollar made a marginal new high but commodities failed to confirm that new high by breaking their 2012 three year cycle low.

Gold Prices Search for That Illusive Ignition / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

Let me start by stating that I am a gold and silver bull and that the precious metals sector has been very good to me. However, any stock or commodity doesn’t not go up or down in a straight uninterrupted line. There are bear phases in a bull market just as there are bullish rallies in a bear market. Gold prices are in a long term bull market despite being in a bear phase at the moment. With that being our starting point then being short rather than long in the near term, makes sense to me.

Gold And Silver – Knowledge Is Not Of Value. Using It Is / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

Do markets send messages? Absolutely, and they are there for anyone and everyone to see as they develop. Most people like to read news about increased demand for gold and silver, record purchases for silver eagles, etc, etc, etc. The headlines over the past several months have teemed with such information, raising expectations, but not raising the price either of gold or silver.

More recently, there is “news” about market bottoms, eminent turnarounds, a renewal of where gold and silver can reach, [once the central bankers deplete their gold stocks; once the COMEX fails, and more etcs]. Seems like not as many are paying attention to the most reliable and obvious source of all, the market price itself.

Abelications of Abenomics on Uranium and Nuclear Power / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Richard_Mills

There's a three year downward trend in Chinese imports underway. The chart below, from Nomura Global Economics, shows the trend quite clearly.

China's exports and imports declined again in June. Exports fell 3.1 percent yoy - the most since the global financial crisis in 2008 - while imports dropped 0.7 percent. The poor June report follows a May collapse in export gains - fake invoices had inflated data for the first four months of the year, the bogus data enabled exporters to evade currency controls and bring extra money into the country. Trade growth might come in below the government's target of eight percent for the year.

How to Beat a Gold Shortage / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Miguel Perez-Santalla writes:Gold is sold out! Or so you might think if you miss the true nature of coin supply...

OVER the last few years, during the great investment demand for gold and silver, we have seen sporadic shortages in bullion coins.

Many people have written about these shortages as a harbinger of things to come in precious metals more widely. One of the fads is to decry supply issues in silver and now recently gold. However, the truth of the matter is less dramatic, if not quite so simple.

Gold’s QE3 Anomaly / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold’s biggest psychological overhang this year has been the fate of the Fed’s third quantitative-easing campaign.  Gold futures traders hang on every word of Fed officials, extrapolating them into a timeline for ending QE3.  This consuming obsession fueled unprecedented selling that spawned a stunning gold anomaly.  But as QE3’s nature becomes more apparent, gold is due for a massive mean reversion higher.

It probably already started.  Just this week, the Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke aggressively backtracked on his recent timeline for slowing and then ending QE3!  At a speech in Massachusetts, he said the Fed is failing on both sides of its dual mandate with unemployment too high and inflation too low.  Therefore the Fed ought to keep maintaining zero interest rates and buying bonds until both areas greatly improve.

Did Gold Start to Trade Along With the Stock Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

It seems that everybody’s hanging on the Fed’s every word. Yesterday the S&P 500 index climbed above the closing record of 1,669.16 reached May 21 and closed at its record high (1,675.02) as Ben Bernanke backed sustained monetary stimulus.

The index has advanced for six straight days, the longest winning streak since March 11, and is heading toward its biggest weekly gain since Jan. 4. In this way, the S&P 500 erased losses since Bernanke first suggested the Fed might curb stimulus this year.

Why Ben Bernanke's QE3 Comments are Bullish for Gold Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: When Ben Bernanke speaks, the gold market listens - closely.

The Federal Reserve chairman's comments late Wednesday that the central bank would continue its QE3 economic stimulus for now drove gold prices higher, and they're likely to keep rising.

That's because investors need a hedge against quantitative easing, which looks like it'll be with us for the foreseeable future, and that's good news for gold prices.
