Gold Rising As All Currencies Devalue In Stagflation Environment / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA profound broad gold rally is underway. It is occurring in almost every single major currency. Unsure about Zimbabwe though. In the last article, two major forecasts were made, both hit squarely. The euro fell, heading toward the 143 stated target forecasted. Talk circulates about the Euro Central Bank eventually cutting interest rates. Pressure will grow enormously. The Germans are isolated in wanting a hard line against price inflation. A Latin Bloc has formed, urging a rate cut as the southern nations of France , Italy , Spain , Portugal , and Greece suffer from housing declines. Even Ireland has joined that bloc. A compromise will be worked out, more like a gang-up against the Germans.

Gold Price Out of Synch With US Dollar Index, Expect Sharp Decline / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy the time you read this, more than enough words will have been expended on the possible sale of Gold by the IMF. Therefore, my comments on the matter will be brief. A group of economists at the IMF want to sell Gold to buy debt paper in order to earn interest income to pay the salaries of a bunch of economists asleep at their desks. Such is not the kind of thinking that makes market tops. Sounds more the thinking that went into the Bank of England sales in 1999.

Gold Fails at Retest of Highs Signals Trend to $850 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) has rolled over in a serious way today after climbing for the past week towards a retest of the January high at 92.58. The fact that the rally stalled at 91.46 yesterday and has reversed to the downside with such power today suggests to me that it represents a secondary high within a larger developing intermediate-term top pattern that will have the power to press prices to the 85.00 area prior to completion.

Gold is a Better Inflation Hedge Than Real Estate / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Dr_Krassimir_Petrov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. will likely spin into a long era of high inflation. The coming years will look like the 1970s. There is also a good risk of hyperinflation, which is a particularly severe bout of high inflation. Thus, the vital question for every investor is: How to hedge, or protect your wealth, against inflation? Some, especially realtors, urge to hedge this risk with real estate. So, should we really hedge with real estate?

Gold Expected to Retrace to $800 Area / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

We've already seen the start of support above the 5-week moving average, about $900, and could see a healthy retracement next week that still won't preclude further declines if not making a significant new high. Silver has not invalidated a corrective count either. That wouldn't occur until nearly $17.50. The 5-day moving average … will be crucial early next week in determining support and resistance. A platinum group metals play based on shrinking supply could be a haven if the more monetary metals are due for a near term correction.” ~ Precious Points: New Month, New Direction?

Gold Bullish, But Gold Stocks Showing Bearish Divergence / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Up and down but in the end gold seems to be having trouble moving. Does it have anything to do with the recent strengthening in the U.S. Dollar Index?

GOLD : LONG TERM
From a long term perspective there is no real serious problem with gold. The indicators change very slowly so one does not expect sudden changes in the technical situation. Gold continues to trade well above its long term moving average line and the line continues to trend upwards. The long term momentum (price strength) indicator is also well inside its positive zone with no hint of a reversal in site. It recently moved into new highs confirming the strength of the recent gold price action. The volume indicator (an indication of speculative interest) continues above its long term trigger line and the trigger continues to point upward. The only cautionary signs are in the more aggressive time periods which will be reviewed below.

Maximise Gold Profits by Using Leveradge HUI Unhedged Gold-stock Index / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a stock-market sector, gold stocks are obscure, increasingly volatile, and seemingly perpetually unloved. Yet investors and speculators choose to own them anyway. Why? Because in the past gold stocks have greatly amplified gold's underlying gains. Traders are betting this outperforming behavior will continue in the future.

The outperformance so far in this bull market has been enormous. At best in recent weeks, the flagship HUI unhedged gold-stock index was up 1237% since its bull was born in November 2000. This incredible run was driven by a 262% gain in gold since its own bull launched in April 2001. Thus bull to date per simple math, the HUI has leveraged gold's underlying gains by 4.7x!
