Controlling Copper and Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Alasdair_Macleod

There is an unwarranted assumption that market prices are always right, and represent "fair value". In the case of commodities, particularly metals, this is not necessarily true, because regulated financial markets make it too easy for government agencies and large banks to game the system.

Take the case of a country like China, which is the largest consumer of copper. Does it passively buy its copper through the market? No. Instead it strikes a price with a supplier, such as a Zambian copper mine, based on the London market price, bypassing the market entirely. If China plays no part in setting the reference price in London, the Zambians can be satisfied the price is fair; but if China or her agents suppressed the price of copper in the market before the price is set, the Zambians would be right to be upset.

How to Pick the Winners in the Keystone Oil Pipeline Debate / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com You might think the entire oil and gas industry is behind the Keystone XL Pipeline. And at the surface level that may be true. After all, the big oil industry lobby, the American Petroleum Institute (API), has spent millions promoting it through advertising and outreach to members of Congress. API are the folks who brought us all of those pro-Keystone commercials a few months ago.

Since API represents the industry, with over 600 members, the project must be good for everyone in the energy space, right?

High-Quality Gold Mining Stocks that Have Positioned Themselves Well in the Downturn / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: The_Gold_Report

Chris Mancini, an analyst with the Gabelli Gold Fund, is confident that gold's day will come, perhaps as soon as 2016. He argues that the decline of confidence in paper currencies is inevitable and that the Federal Reserve is fast running out of ways to prop up the U.S. dollar. In this interview with The Gold Report, Mancini advises investors to go for the best of the best: gold miners with cash flow, great balance sheets, low costs and good management. And he also highlights several companies that are unloved now but will become so when the gold price rises.

The Gold Report:The U.S. Federal Reserve has downgraded its forecasts for both economic growth and inflation. That being the case, why would it raise interest rates?

Crude Oil Price Hit 2015 High / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

Oil hit 2015 high with WTI at $60.40 and Bent at $68.40 end of trading on Tuesday. Crude prices have now risen 50% in just over three months.  The overall oil market sentiment is very bullish as CNBC reported hedge funds and money managers raised bets on rising Brent prices to another record, data showed on Monday, pushing net long positions to their highest since official exchange records began in 2011.

Can Gold Save the World From the Credit Bubble? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

In a financial world of contradictions, chaos, and confusion, perhaps a “gold-centric” perspective will provide clarity.

The media is filled with comments from notable “gold-bashers” such as Benjamin Bernanke, Warren Buffett, and Bill Gates.  Their criticisms of gold (in my opinion) boil down to:

Keystone Pipeline and the Mixed Blessings of Cheap Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com To understand the logic behind the Keystone XL pipeline requires a trip back in time. When Keystone and its associated 830,000 barrels of oil per day were announced in 2008, U.S. crude production was at lows generally not seen since 1950 – right around 5 million barrels per day. Meanwhile, U.S. oil imports were rampant, near their all-time highs of 10 million barrels a day. Worse yet, over half of U.S. imports, again a near-record high of 5.6 million barrels per day, came from countries that don’t like us very much (i.e., OPEC).

Crude Oil Price Meets Solid Resistance / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): No positions are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

Although crude oil hit a fresh 2015 high on Friday, an increase in Iraq's export levels and a stronger greenback weighed on investors' sentiment and pushed the commodity lower. As a result, light crude lost 0.85% and closed the day under the previous high. Where will crude oil head next in the coming week?

On Friday, Baker Hughes showed in its weekly report that oil rigs fell by 24 last week to 679. With this drop, the number of active rigs has fallen for a record 21 weeks in a row (the lowest level since September 2010), but the pace of slowdown continued to decrease, which raised worries over another increase in domestic crude oil inventories.

Gold Long-term Outlook for Massive Parabolic Run to $5,000 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Clive_Maund

In order to comprehend why the long-term outlook for gold (and silver) is so positive you only have to understand that global debt and balance sheets are set to expand indefinitely. The controllers of the system had the chance to demand that the books be balanced back in the financial crisis of 2008 - 2009, but they weren't interested - they were much more interested in taking the easy way out and lining their own pockets at the expense of society at large, by printing vast quantities of money which they gifted to themselves, and fleecing savers via zero and now negative interest rates. They were then able to use their Central Bank generated cash handouts to make even more money by speculating in global property and stockmarkets, and magnify their gains even more via the carry trade. In the past they would have been sent to prison for a long time for this, but since they control society they can make and amend laws to suit themselves, and with respect to themselves the laws are unenforceable anyway, and the ordinary population, who have been neutered, are going to stand up to them.

Silver Bear Market Downside Momentum Easing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Clive_Maund

Silver's long bearmarket from its 2011 highs is believed to be "nested" within a larger bullmarket, along with gold's, as discussed in more detail in the parallel Gold Market update, to which the reader is referred. This is an echo of what happened in the 70's, when both gold and silver went into a heavy correction in 1975 and 1976 that was taken at the time to be a new bearmarket, but ended up leading into a massive parabolic ramp that took silver to dizzying heights as the Hunt brothers attempted to corner the silver market. The second major upleg of this bullmarket should take silver to levels that dwarf those of the 70's peak, and this is not some deluded fantasy but based on a sound assessment of the trends in currencies and debt now extant.

Silver and NASDAQ – Long, Medium and Short Trends / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

Courtesy of the High-Frequency-Traders and a wave of digital “money printing” the NASDAQ closed at a new high on Friday the 24th – a 15 year high.  Silver, on the other hand, has been crushed – the near all-time high was 4 years ago.  In this tale of two markets, we examine the silver to NASDAQ ratio over the long and medium term for clues about their next major moves.

Anyone who believes this nonsense will stay away from investing in silver for all the wrong reasons.

The next time you find yourself contemplating, worrying, or wondering with anxiety whether it’s too simple to be true; it is not simple - it’s exceedingly complicated.

Not because the fundamentals are all that hard to understand. And not because in principle it is sound personal action in any time period.

But it is complicated because we’ve spent so many years off the rails of sound economic principles that we don’t recognize them when we see them.

Gold Trading Week Ahead - 4 May 2015 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Harley_Salt

Gold ended last week on a flat note having fallen below US$1,180/oz with better than expected jobless data out of the US pushing gold lower. It was a surprise to the markets to finally see positive data from the US, of late the majority of key data has been coming in below expectations. With one positive bit of data the market seemed to grab this and give hope to a near term rate rise which kept gold demand weak. We still do not believe the Fed will move on rates this year given the overall weakness in the US economy and the continuing flow of poor economic data.

Gold And Silver - Thieving Bankers Operate In Open; Public Have Eyes Wide Shut / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

Who are the bankers? There are those known, doing a lot of dirty work, and there are those unknown, operating totally behind the scenes controlling everything, doing even dirtier work. What does that mean, controlling everything? How about the world's money supply, creating it, deciding who gets what and how it is to be spent.

How has a lot of the money been spent? Acquiring politicians, which means controlling governments and the political partied that make up governments. Bankers have paid for and gained control of the entire pharmaceutical industry, the AMA [American Medical Association], all of the huge Agri-business, controlling the like of Monsanto and GMOs. Bankers control the entire media industry, everything you watch on TV, hear on the radio, read in the newspapers and magazines, control over everything they want you to hear and read. The entire educational system is run by the government. Everything is done under the watchful eyes of the bankers. Nothing gets done without their approval.
