Why Is the Gold Price Going Down? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Alongside the falling gold price we have watched shareholders in the U.S. gold ETF, SPDR selling nearly 100 tonnes of gold over the last few weeks. The selling of gold has come from the U.S. and mainly seen at the Fixes in London at 10.30 a.m. London time or 3.00 p.m. When shareholders sell their shares the custodian HSBC is tasked with selling the fund's gold holding against these sales. As one of the five members of the Gold Fixing in London, where 90% of the world's physical gold is traded, this would be the ideal market in which to sell this gold. This is why the two daily Fixes are where the current gold price is being made. But why are U.S. gold Investors in the SPDR gold ETF selling their gold [shares]?

Welcome to ‘Peak Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe day of reckoning is approaching and the world does not have a contingency plan. 

The truth is that the world’s output of conventional crude oil peaked in 2005 and global oil exports are also past their prime.  Furthermore, the unconventional sources (tar sands, heavy sour crude, ethanol, natural gas liquids, bio-fuels and shale) are struggling to keep up with the ongoing depletion in the world’s largest oil fields. Therefore, it is probable that the world’s current production of total liquids is at or near maximum capacity.

A Simple Shake Could Set Silver Free / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

There is no more silver!  Really, there isn’t any left.

There is a danger lurking in the shadows of the COMEX silver market.  Prices are (generally) rising, but the supply of silver is falling, and it’s falling quickly.  Why, you ask?   Unfortunately, there has been confusion in the paper and physical metals market…as if silver investors hadn’t already noticed.

Decoding Energy Investment / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePinetree Capital's Marshall Auerback sees a number of supply/demand imbalances in the energy space, particularly in uranium. "We like uranium because it's both a supply and demand story," he says, believing the price could "easily double" over the next few years. But yellowcake won't be alone in its ascent up the energy hierarchy. As developing nations begin to realize a standard of living more akin to the West, opportunities could arise in other areas across the energy spectrum. In this Energy Report exclusive, Marshall decodes the energy enigma, making a strong case for U308, oil and gas E&Ps and even natural gas.

Gold and Silver Resource Shares, Before You Shoot Your Next Arrow / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Director, Casey Research writes: While I have read certain works on the life and ponderings of Buddha, I claim no deep knowledge of his philosophy. Note I didn’t use the word “religion,” because Buddha himself claimed no supernatural powers and even begged his followers not to deify him after his death. Hardly had he drawn his last breath, however, when the deification began – though most Buddhists won’t claim it as such.

Will Gold, Silver and Oil Prices Soar on Social Unrest In The Middle East? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

An unexpected specter is haunting the streets throughout the capitals of North Africa and the Middle East. Although revolution has been quelled for many years, dollar devaluation has caused prices of basic goods to soar in emerging economies like these. Young people are unemployed and face little opportunities in autocratic societies. Tens of thousands of young, leaderless Arabs are rioting in the streets demanding an end to pro-Western leaders. Egypt’s stock market (EGPT) has been shut down as reports are showing that the rioting will intensify, and many people and businesses are fleeing the country.

Is the Selling Over In Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Farrish

Are gold prices ready to resume the run higher? It has had an auspicious start to 2011 and the negative reports relative to the metal have been on the rise. The gold bugs are jumping up and down saying buy, buy, buy! And the other side is calling for the price to fall to $1050 per ounce. Who is right in the quest for profits in gold?

Will Gold Respond to the Fed’s Pledge to Keep Printing? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Tuesday’s Federal Reserve statement (see below) contained no big surprises. We expected them to reiterate their intention of completing all the bond purchases as outlined originally in the second quantitative easing program (QE2). The Fed’s hope is that rising asset prices will increase confidence, and in turn lead to more spending and more hiring.

Fiscal Policy Setting Stage for a New Bubble in a Series of Asset Classes / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarshall Auerback, corporate spokesperson for Toronto-based Pinetree Capital, is a so-called "hedge fund" strategist. He believes that deficit spending is not bound by anything other than inflation, which, he says, is of limited consequence right now. Marshall believes the U.S. government's main goal should be to reduce unemployment, and he predicts the gold price is likely to remain rangebound between $1,100 and $1,400 an ounce in 2011. However, his long-term outlook for precious metals remains rosy given that "casino capitalism" is setting the stage for a new bubble. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Marshall reveals some of Pinetree Capital's precious metals holdings and explains why he fears for the global economy.

What Difference if Central Banks Buy Gold Local Production Or On the International Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina currently produces 340 tonnes of gold annually. This may increase by up to 100 tonnes a year or more. It imported 210 tonnes in 2010. The demand for gold is increasing in China and this is likely to continue in line with the growth of the Chinese Middle classes. We do not know for sure how much the People's Bank of China took into its reserves and are only likely to know in two years time. Russia produces around 250 tonnes of gold per annum. It increases its reserves by 152.4 tonnes by January 1st 2011.

Will Commodity Issues Follow Equity Strength or Commodity Weakness? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This is shaping up to be a very important and a very interesting day for the precious metals and the mining names. With oil inventories putting pressure on U.S. oil prices in general, it remains to be seen if oil's impact presses other commodity prices lower -- in particular, the precious metals.

If the mining issues remain bid, and buoyant today, then we could come to the conclusion that they are following the equity market lead, rather than the weakness in commodities. Right now, my technical work argues in favor of price stability followed by potent recovery rallies in Barrick Gold (ABX) and Silver Wheaton (SLW).
