Time Is the Trigger for Equities and Gold Bullion / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

Charles Oliver, lead portfolio manager with the Sprott Gold and Precious Minerals Fund, believes the only thing between investors and bigger investment returns on precious metals equities and bullion, especially silver, is time. In this interview with The Gold Report, Oliver discusses silver and gold demand drivers, as well as portfolio ideas that figure to get bigger with time as the trigger.

The Gold Report: "Sell in May and go away" is a common investing axiom but does it have any validity?

Crude Oil Price At Crossroads / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

On Friday,  crude oil gained 0.61% as strong U.S. economic data and ongoing worries over the crisis in Ukraine weighted on the price. Thanks to these circumstances, light crude came back above $102, but does this growth change the short-term outlook for the commodity?

On Friday, better-than-expected numbers from the housing sector gave crude oil a support. The Census Bureau reported that U.S. building permits rose 8% to 1.080 million units last month (while analysts had expected an increase to 1.010 million units in April) and the Commerce Department showed that U.S. housing starts rose 13.2% last month to 1.072 million units, beating expectations of 980,000 gain (it was the largest increase in five months).

Silver Price at Critical Support / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) are justified from the risk/reward perspective in gold, silver, and mining stocks.

The previous week started quite favorably for precious metals bulls, but as the week progressed, the situation became less bullish, and finally we saw some bearish signs. Overall, the previous week didn’t change much. Let’s take a closer look (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

How Long Can Phase II of the Gold Pool Be Sustained / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jesse

"The London Gold Pool was the pooling of gold reserves by a group of eight central banks in the United States and seven European countries that agreed on 1 November 1961 to cooperate in maintaining the Bretton Woods System of fixed-rate convertible currencies and defending a gold price of US$35 per troy ounce by interventions in the London gold market.

The central banks coordinated concerted methods of gold sales to balance spikes in the market price of gold as determined by the London morning gold fixing while buying gold on price weaknesses. The United States provided 50% of the required gold supply for sale. The price controls were successful for six years until the system became no longer workable. The pegged price of gold was too low and runs on gold, the British pound, and the US dollar occurred and France decided to withdraw from the pool. The London Gold Pool collapsed in March 1968.

Gold Price Triangle Pattern Near Completion / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Gregor_Horvat

Gold is moving sideways in 1268-1331 range for more than a month between two contracting trend-lines that make a shape of a triangle. We are looking at a running triangle in wave (b) that can be near completion as rise from 1276 is already in three legs that represents wave e), final leg in the pattern. With that in mind, traders should be aware of a bearish reversal down in wave (c) towards 1220/40 especially once 1277 and pattern support will give way.

Future For Gold As Uncertain As It Is Certain. Silver Will Lead/Follow / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

Based on several thousand years of history, and based on the last 100 years of fiats, gold will continue to rise as a store of value, and almost all fiats will fail, massively. Which fiats will continue? The Yuan and the Ruble, for two. The Panama Balboa is another possibility, but Panama will have to do some sorting out to get rid of the fiat US dollar, its paper currency. The official money of account is the Panama balboa, but it ceased printing around 1941, in favor of the US dollar. This little Central American country has been making preparations to disassociate from the fiat Federal Reserve Notes.

Silver Stealth Buying / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Silver has suffered as a market pariah this year, dragging along doggedly near major lows.  Investors have seemingly abandoned it to chase the Fed’s general-stock-market levitation, an affliction plaguing most of the alternative-investment realm.  But rather provocatively, silver buying remains quite strong even in this dreary sentiment wasteland.  This stealth buying will likely explode once gold starts running.

After silver plunged 35.6% in 2013 and hit 2.8-year lows, it’s easy to understand why it remains deeply out of favor today.  With the Fed’s extreme money printing and jawboning dramatically catapulting general stocks higher, mainstreamers forgot about alternative investments including silver.  But for the brave contrarians who would rather buy low than buy high, silver remains an incredibly alluring investment.

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) are justified from the risk/reward perspective in gold, silver, and mining stocks.

The situation in the currency and precious metals markets developed to a large extent as we had outlined it yesterday. The USD Index paused, but gold, silver, and mining stocks caught up a bit in terms of the reaction to the previous dollar’s moves.

Firmer Tone for Gold and Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

This week started with a severe markdown in gold and silver prices when markets opened in the Far East on Monday morning, taking gold down $12 to $1278 and silver only 12 cents to $19.03. The clue in this was the resilience of silver, which hardly moved: it was an attack on the gold price presumably designed to take out stop-losses.

From there precious metals never looked back. Interestingly, for the first time in a long time, prices advanced in London dealings, indicating they were being driven more by physical demand than trading in US futures. This is hardly a surprise given that GOFO is still negative for up to three months forward and has been in backwardation every day since 3rd April.

Are Silver Prices Set Up for Another Heartbreak? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

For long term investors and precious metals observers, the range-bound price action has rubbed salt into the open wound of short price sentiment. That is, if there is anyone left to remember the move up to $50 in 2011.

How long prices can remain relatively quiet and range-bound (in the face of growing fundamentals, geopolitical tension, and the rising awareness of inflation) is anyone's guess.

Potential Catalyst for Gold and Silver Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Precious Metals continue to be in a long bottoming process that began last summer. Though many quality juniors have already bottomed and while GDX, GDXJ and SIL probably won’t see new lows, the broad sector as a whole is struggling to push out of this long bottoming process. Traders always say price is all that matters and who cares about fundamentals or the why. However, the most astute traders and investors look beyond a simple tool or single sphere of analysis. With respect to precious metals, negative real rates and the direction of inflation are the driving forces. Deflation is a catalyst for precious metals because policy makers react by suppressing real rates. Rising inflation is a catalyst and especially when it causes real rates to go negative or more negative. I will explain why this could be the catalyst for the revival of precious metals sector.

So How Goes the War on Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_J_Kosares

“I can’t remember the exact quote but when I used to trade and Mr. Volcker was Fed chairman, he said something like ‘gold is my enemy, I’m always watching what gold is doing’, we need to think why he made a statement like that. If you’re a central banker or one of the congressmen or senators, watch what gold is doing because this is a no-confidence vote in fiscal and dollar policy.”– Rick Santelli, CNBC

Crude Oil Boom Reaches Tipping Point / Commodities / Crude Oil

Global oil production plunged in March thanks to steeply lower OPEC output... while America's production soared to a 26-year high.

Gold Discovery of the Decade, On Sale / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Louis James, Chief Metals & Mining Investment Strategist

Sell in May and go away?

Precious metals tend to exhibit a seasonal pattern to their price trends, with summer weakness that leads to strength in the fall. Add to this the fact that mineral exploration in the Northern Hemisphere, especially in Canada, enters a sort of hibernation during winter months and then reawakens in the spring. With winter drill programs already announced, we typically see less news flow starting about now until well into the summer.

Gold Price Long-term Forecast Using Statistics & Technical Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Here is my gold prediction (silver and gold mining stocks, should be the same) looking forward 24 months.

Since the top in gold in 2011 gold has selling off. Depending on how you analyze the market, this 3 year sell off could be seen as consolidation within a major cyclical bull market or that it’s in a bear market. But know this, either way, the outlook is bullish, and all gold has to do is find a bottom here and rally above the $1400 per ounce level. This would kick start a major feeding frenzy of gold buying.

Silver Was Not In a Bubble in 2011! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

Conclusions

  • The April 2011 silver price spike was NOT a bubble.
  • The January 1980 silver price blow-off was a bubble, and it was materially different from the April 2011 price spike.
  • I fully expect a bubble in silver – someday – but that day is months or years into the future.
  • Prices for food, energy, silver, and gold are going up – broadly speaking – along with the national debt, money supply, and similar measures of debt and credit. Since we KNOW national debt will increase for the foreseeable future, plan on the prices for food, energy, silver, and gold increasing similarly.

U.S. Dollar 15-Year Cycle Decline Should Favor Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Trader_MC

The Dollar is following an accurate 15-Year Cycle which is made of five 3-Year Cycles. On the following chart you can see that we are currently in the 15-Year Cycle that began in 2008. The current 3-Year Cycle that began in 2011 did not make new highs above the previous 3-Year Cycle that began in 2008 which puts the 15-Year Cycle in decline. As a result the current 15-Year Cycle has probably already topped and the following 3-Year Cycles should make lower highs and lower lows. The Dollar Index should therefore decline during the next ten years until the next 15-Year Cycle Low due in 2023.

Gold and Silver Big Picture / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Rambus_Chartology

We’ve been focusing in on the shorter term charts for the precious metal complex for some time now which is important but we also need to keep a very close eye on the bigger picture as that over rides the shorter term charts. You really have to know the big picture and then work your way back to the shorter term time frames that help confirm what the long terms are saying. Unless your a very short term trader then the long term charts won’t impact your trades that much. By looking at the long term charts they can still give you some clues you can use to help make a decision on where one might look for important support or resistance zones that don’t show up on the minute charts. So for me looking at all the different time frames helps paint a much clearer picture that one can use to trade any time fame they choose. Perspective.

Breakthrough in Crude Oil Price Only A Matter Of Time / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

On Friday, crude oil hit an intraday high of $101.18 supported by ongoing concerns over tensions in Ukraine. Despite this improvement, the commodity reversed and lost 0.20% as weaker-than-expected economic data from China and a stronger dollar weighted on the price. Because of these circumstances, light crude erased earlier gains and temporarily slipped below the psychological barrier of $100 once again. Is it enough to trigger another sizable downswing?
