Waiting to Pounce on Gold and Silver Profits / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet me start by re-iterating that I am a secular permabull on physical precious metals, particularly Gold. When you're dealing with the end of the road for the current international monetary system (a la the 1930s and the 1970s), there's only one asset that is a complete no-brainer to own. As a hint, that asset is shiny and owned by every central bank in the world "just in case."

However, I also like to trade. When trading, I would sell or buy anything if I though there was a profit to be had. For example, my subscribers and I have been short senior Gold stocks as a "scalp" trade over the past week. Does this make me a traitor? I don't think in those terms, as I am a more practical Gold bug/bull. The more paper I make, the more metal I can buy.

Should Investors Reconsider Cash and Gold as Safe-Havens? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The staggering global debt crisis continues to linger on in the financial markets, as a country as small as Greece is unable to successfully deal with its debt addiction.  Greece is certainly not alone in this mess, which has investors worldwide seeking out safe-haven instruments such as cash and precious metals.  However, as markets and regulations change, investors are forced to rethink their safe-haven choices.  Cash is considered to be king, but how well is this notion holding up in today’s market?

Gold Odysseus Journey Continues! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is the Odysseus of the markets, destined to wonder the hinterland of the financial world for years without achieving the deserved safe haven status. Like Odysseus gold will eventually arrive and the general population will embrace it for what it is, the one and only store of wealth that exists today. Loathed and assailed by the mainstream press, gold is deliberately kept hidden in the financial shadows by those that continue to shovel out paper “assets” like so much manure. Right now the Dow is all the rage with the press as they preach the gospel of the US stock market as a port in the storm. They do so with an old time religious fervor that would make a snake oil salesman blush. The object of the message is to pry that last penny from the hands of the last widow and orphan left standing. Value be damned! There is always a greater fool out there who will want your paper asset at some higher price.

Where a Nation's Gold and Your Gold Should be Held / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePurpose of Holding Gold

Most central banks hold their nation's gold in the vaults of the world's leading financial centers' central bank vaults. These include New York, London, and Canada among others. In a peaceful, cooperative world, this is sensible as one of the prime purposes of central banks holding gold is to cover the nation's international trade payments when their own currency becomes unacceptable and their reserves of foreign exchange are depleted. By positioning the gold outside the country, it's instantly accessible for payments or guarantees of payments.

Gold and Silver Remain Strong as Greece Debt Nears Deadline / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Precious metals posted their worst daily performance of the year on Friday.  A stronger-than-expected, but highly criticized unemployment report added strength to the U.S. recovery story and the dollar.  Now, the U.S. dollar continues to climb higher as Greek politicians struggle to agree on an austerity plan that is needed in order to secure another bailout for the country.  Although the euro is giving a boost to the dollar, gold and silver continue to maintain key support levels.

Jim Grant and the GOP Joining Forces to Bring Back the Gold Standard / Politics / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: With two GOP presidential candidates saying they'd add legendary Wall Street pundit Jim Grant to their administrations, bringing back the gold standard clearly has moved up on the Republican agenda.

Ron Paul, for whom returning to the gold standard has been a decades-long crusade, has said he would name Grant chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve. In his case, that would be a compromise - Paul has often called for the Fed to be abolished altogether.

Bullish Digestion for Gold, Euro / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Spot gold continues to respect the integrity of its up-slanted channel off of the Dec 29 corrective low at $1522.48.  As long as the lower channel support line remains intact in the vicinity of $1700, the uptrend channel will continue to dictate the directional action of gold.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter prices fell 10 percent in December, many investors wondered if the bull market in gold was running out of steam. That was before Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke swooped in with a "red cape" and fired the bulls back up. Since the Fed reassured the world that interest rates will remain at "exceptionally low levels" for another two years, gold has jumped more than three percent.

Gold Bull Market Bigger than Ever / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe recently wrote about the difference between gold’s price and its value, demonstrating a significant difference between the two. We asked many fundamental questions which show whether or not the gold price is proximate to its value. The answer was it was not.

Late last year we wrote of the on-going ‘Gold Wars’ between so-called industry experts and gold investors. We repeatedly found ‘experts’, who write in the mainstream media, were calling the end of the gold bubble whenever the price of gold dipped slightly.

Silver And The Shift To Measuring Wealth In Ounces Instead Of Dollars / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Hubert_Moolman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt-based monetary system creates an illusion of wealth. It allows for claims on real goods to significantly exceed the actual amount of real goods. You then have a number of people believing they have wealth, since they have claims (pieces of paper or tokens) showing that they have these real assets, whereas, in reality, if everyone was to claim the real goods, there would not be enough to go around.
