Gold for Preserving Wealth Not Creating Wealth According to Warren Buffett / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe link below will take the reader to a summary of a report by Warren Buffet to shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway. In it, he implicitly makes the point that investors may be regarding gold with too much emotional attachment. http://www.businessinsider.com...

I think that the most significant point Mr Buffett makes is that “wealth creation” is a function of building businesses that satisfy market needs/demands. Businesses are living, breathing multi-cellular organisms that create value regardless of what the stock market is doing.

Silver Price Entrenched in Consolidation Pattern Below Key MA and Falling Trendline / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

After late February’s dramatic false upside breakout in silver that peaked at the $37.48 level on February 29th stunned many technical traders who were expecting a follow-on rally, its subsequent price action fell into what many analysts considered could be a potentially toppish head and shoulders pattern, which had been forming since the early part of this year.

Frustrated Safe Haven Swiss Franc Investors May Soon Turn to Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The resurgence of concerns over the long term solvency of debt laden Eurozone countries like Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland has led to refreshed selling of the Euro against the other major currencies since early April. 

Although the market in EUR/USD now seems to have stabilized just over the psychological 1.3000 level, deep questions remain among international investors as to whether the European Central Bank or ECB will be able to manage the ongoing European debt crisis over the coming few years without the trade bloc disintegrating or the common currency being further devalued by the forex market.

Silver Mining Stocks Building for Price Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe health of the U.S. economy may not be quite as robust as some government statistics indicate and more stimulus could be on the way, despite what the Fed may be saying. Regardless of which way the economy goes, Chris Marchese, contributor to The Morgan Report, tells us in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report that precious metals will go higher as investors seek protection from the effects of monetary policies that don't work. In the process, he expects that greatly undervalued mining shares of silver producers will again shine in the eyes of investors and highlights several of his favorites at current bargain prices.

Gold and Silver Wait Patiently for More Easing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After having a strong performance the prior day, the markets experienced a broad pullback as growth data from China disappointed investors. Gold prices fell more than 1.5 percent, while silver dropped 3.3 percent.

On Friday, the National Bureau of Statistics in Beijing announced that China’s economy grew at 8.1 percent in the first quarter of 2012, its slowest pace in about three years. Economists were expecting growth of about 8.3 percent and the whisper number was around 9 percent. In comparison, China grew at 8.9 percent in the previous quarter, and 11.9 percent in the first quarter of 2010. Song Yu, China economist at Goldman Sachs explained, “Growth in the first two months was weak. We had some loosening of monetary and fiscal policy in March, but it wasn’t enough to save the quarterly number,” according to the WSJ.

U.S. Gas Price Redux / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is truly amazing how much can change in four years. Or, more accurately, how little things change in terms of human behavior. Four years ago the US was mired in the last spike in gasoline prices heading into the summer. Virtually every media outlet was conducting daily interviews, polls, and newsbytes about how Mr. and Mrs. Average were dealing with the high gas prices. Today, we have a new norm, and the wires are rather silent on the high gas prices other than quietly reporting the national averages. We as a country have come to be comfortable with $3.50 gas. Gas is one of those strange commodities too because, unlike so many other things, almost everyone has a pretty good idea of the price they paid for their last tankful.

The Inter-market Correlations May Prove Insightful for Gold and Silver Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday marked the worst day of the year for U.S. markets. Stocks fell amid anxiety ahead of earnings season and rising bond yields for Spain and Italy, along with sharp losses for those markets.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 213.66 points, or 1.7%, resulting in a five-session losing streak. That’s the longest such run of losses since August. It was also the biggest one-day point and percentage drop for the index since Nov. 23. But Wednesday, U.S. stocks rose sharply after an extended losing run as Spanish and Italian bond yields fell.

Gold Bullish Technicals, Major Rally Brewing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has been weathering some considerable selling pressure lately, which has naturally turned sentiment quite pessimistic.  Bearish commentary abounds, with all kinds of predictions for further declines.  But as is usually the case after any material selloff spooks traders, gold’s technicals are actually very bullish today.  Gold’s next move will likely prove to be a major rally.

Gold’s latest selloff started on February 29th when the Fed Chairman’s testimony before Congress convinced traders that a third round of quantitative easing is becoming less likely.  Gold plummeted 5.1% on this latest in a long line of irrational QE3 scares, its biggest down day since the stock panic.  Over the 6 weeks since, gold has retreated as much as 9.3% at worst (including that initial plunge).

Gold Holding Up / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Under the circumstances, spot gold is holding up very well amdist a stronger USD and declining equity and commodity markets. Yes, it is a risk-off day, but so far gold has preserved its dominant near-term support lines and levels, which suggests that any lull or reversal in the selling pressure, should work to the advantage of the relative technical "health" of gold.

Gold Stocks Are Turning Up / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSomething funny is happening in the mining stock world.  Gold and gold stocks have been in a correction since last September and it has gone on for so long that many people are giving up on them just as it appears that this correction may be coming to an end.

Just a few days ago the well respected commentator Dennis Gartman declared on CNBC that the gold bear market that began ten years ago is over.  His reasoning - the recent FOMC minutes release proves that “the game has changed.”

Gold Under Extreme Pressure to Rise, the Golden Eye of the Debt Hurricane / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat an incredibly complex confusing and treacherous month. It can be safely said that 80% of the activity is almost totally kept from the public. The financial system is breaking in an accelerated fashion. Compare to some grisly horror movie where a man is strapped in a chair. The more he moves, the tighter the bindings pull on his gasping throat and pressed nether stones. The most significant two factors at work are the Iran sanctions and their powerful backfire, and the futile efforts in Europe to stem the banking center collapse. The anti-USDollar federation that spans widely across the globe is gathering strong momentum. Financial aggression is being met by financial alternative development.

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets are intriguing due to their constantly changing character. New leadership constantly evolves. In equity markets, that tendency is always pushed to an extreme. A maker of electronic toys is today considered the most valuable company. Nonsensical forecasts of a $1,000 share price have even appeared. A company involved in the social networking fad is praised for a billion-dollar acquisition of a company with no revenues, making the internet bubble look like value investing.
