Can Germany Support The Eurozone Without Nuclear Energy? / Commodities / Uranium

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGermany (EWG) has taken the path away from nuclear following Fukushima by shutting down their reactors and importing natural gas from Russia (RSX) and nuclear energy from France(EWQ). This move away from nuclear is no way to run a modern industrial nation which has heretofore been the strongest economy in the Eurozone area continuously bailing out their debt ridden neighbors. After this move we hear news that the once burgeoning German economy is grinding to a halt due to a "sharp drop in energy production after the government shut down eight nuclear plants after the Fukushima reactor disaster in Japan."

On Monday morning, gold futures for December delivery climbed above $1,650, while silver futures closed in on $32.  Gold and silver still remain in a trading range while markets wait on a European debt solution.  Although many investors are focused on the Eurozone, we are in the midst of an earnings season.  Investors should use this earnings season to sneak a peek at what companies are predicting for the global economy.  One of the most telling earnings releases comes from Dow and S&P 500 component, Caterpillar.

Silver in Late Stages of Base Building / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Over the past week silver has behaved as predicted in the last update, breaking down from its potential Pennant pattern and dropping gently back towards support in the $29 - $30 area, to enter our "accumulation zone" shown on its 4-month chart which turned it higher on Friday, and while the pattern could still be a bear Pennant with an amended lower boundary this is looking considerably less likely - it looks like the Pennant has aborted. It is thus thought that we are late in the base building process.

Gold Aborts Bearish Pennant, Now Looks Strongly Bullish / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTechnically the picture for gold now looks strongly bullish. Action played out last week exactly as predicted in the last update with gold breaking down from its Pennant pattern AND ABORTING THE BEARISH IMPLICATIONS OF THE PENNANT, by dropping back modestly instead of plunging. It arrived back in our target zone near $1600 on Thursday and then reversed quite sharply to the upside on Friday. While nothing is guaranteed in this business and there is still a reduced chance of its being a Pennant with an amended lower boundary, this action implies that a positive QE-rich resolution of sorts of the acute problems in Europe is imminent, despite the severe and intractable problems there.

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow To Trade Gold & Oil – The past couple weeks have been tough for most investors. The recent light volume rallies which have taken place in gold, oil and stocks has been generating mixed signals for technical analysts like myself. In order avoid a large draw down on your trading capital you must focus on the long term intraday charts.

What is a long term intraday chart you ask? It is simply a 4 or 8 hour candlestick or bar chart. For example the charts below in this report are 4 hour charts. So each candlestick represents 4 hours.

The Eurozone Wags the Gold and Silver Dog / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf Greece defaults and the European situation begins to spin out of control where will money flow? It would not make sense for market participants to buy Euro’s during a default regardless of whether the default it structured or not. In fact, it is more likely that European central banks and businesses would be looking to either hedge their Euro exposure or convert their cash positions to another currency all together.

Why the Gold Price is Ripe for a HUGE Rally Soon / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor centuries, gold has been recognized as one of the best way to preserve one’s wealth and maintaining its purchasing power. Even in ancient times during the Egyptians and Greeks rule, gold has served its purpose for not only for its beauty but also for the function being a means of exchange and also its power to change one’s life. As with anything that has any value attached to it, there will always be ups and downs in its price discovery mechanism.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor this special report from the Cambridge House Silver Summit in Spokane, Washington, The Gold Report caught up with three silver investing experts: James Turk, chairman of GoldMoney; Andrew Kaip, vice president of Precious Metals & Mining at BMO Capital Markets; and Ian McAvity, a writer at Deliberations on World Markets.

What’s Going On With Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After a four-day losing streak, gold prices finally broke to the upside as the US dollar weakened. Early Friday morning, gold futures for December delivery gained $37 to reach $1,650. Meanwhile, silver futures climbed more than $1 to hit $31.50. Not only has Europe been keeping equities on edge, but also precious metals. Massive sovereign debts, along with a constant flow of conflicting headlines, have given the US dollar some newfound strength. This recent strength has been one of the factors weighing on gold and silver prices.

What is presented below is an analysis of September 2011 “fails to deliver” equities which are understood to represent physical gold and silver bullion in the market place.  The individual instruments are aggregated on a coloured, daily gross ounce basis to show the serial and systemic nature of the DRAMATIC SHELL-GAME build in [naked] short ounce equivalents – which, when one considers the Jeffrey Christian Constant.

Cheap Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot even mighty gold escaped late September’s commodities massacre, so gold stocks never stood a chance.  They were sucked into the violent maelstrom of commodities-stock selling, plunging sharply.  And as usual when gold is weak, the gold stocks amplified its downside.  The result is very cheap gold stocks today, great bargains.  Relative to gold, they’ve been hammered back down near panic levels.

Gold Bullish Outlook Remains Despite Declines / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhenever gold prices rise or decline the headlines give a flavor-of-the-week reason—the dollar is up, the dollar is down, the eurozone is in trouble, it’s the latest jobs report, etc. There is no doubt that global economic conditions are inter-related and that a “butterfly flapping its wings” in one part of the world can effect gold prices. This week was no exception. This week’s decline was partly explained by news out of China. The Chinese economy, the second largest in the world,  expanded by only 9.1 per cent in the third quarter, down from 9.5 per cent in the second quarter and 9.7 per cent in the first three months of the year. This is a growth rate that all countries on the planet would give their eye teeth to find in their fortune cookie. But for China it was the slowest growth since 2009. This prompted fears that the world's economic engine will slow down eating into demand for exporting countries.
