By: Ben_Traynor

WHOLESALE gold bullion prices touched their highest level since Christmas at $1669 an ounce during Monday morning's London session, before easing slightly towards lunchtime to record a 5.7% gain for 2012 at the final gold fix of the year.

Gold and The Fiscal Cliff / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clif_Droke

The price of gold has been hit by selling under concerns over the upcoming U.S. "fiscal cliff." At least that's what the news media's explanation for gold's decline has been. Here's what Reuters had to say in a recent news article:

"U.S. stocks sold off late in the day to close at session lows on Wednesday as talks to avert a year-end fiscal crisis turned sour, even as investors still expect a deal....

Silver Junior Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Silver mine production is expected to come in at nearly 800m ounces in 2012, an all-time record and the seventh consecutive year of growth (per the U.S. Geological Survey).  At 2012’s average silver price, this total represents a value of nearly $25b.  There’s a lot of money to be made mining this shiny-white metal!

With a massive capital carrot supported by structural fundamentals that are still great, there ought to be a ton of mining companies targeting silver in their exploration endeavors.  So in my latest silver-stock research project I took a close look at the companies on the ground floor of silver exploration, the juniors.

A Gold and Silver Paper Default in the Wake of an EU Collapse / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The EU has failed to recapitalize its banking sector, which still remains massively over-leveraged. They have not yet had their "Lehman moment" of truth.
 
Furthermore, governments of the Eurozone adopted the Euro as a common currency in part because by doing so, they could collectively borrow at much lower interest rates than they were used to when they printed their own money.

Future Silver Prices and Inflation- Bernanke Says Don’t Worry / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The aftermath of dramatic balance sheet expansion is bound to be a rebound in inflationary pressures, but Fed Chair Ben Bernanke said the central bank is not going to react to a short term increase in current inflation.

Basically, if the FOMC is convinced that a rise in inflation today is going to be reversed in the future, they are not going to do anything to offset it with a rise in benchmark interest rates.

Gold Market Overhang Poses Risk of Another Price Fall Into Year End / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ben_Traynor

THE SPOT MARKET gold price fell back to $1660 an ounce Friday morning, close to where it started the week, as stock markets also edged lower, ahead of talks in Washington aimed at avoiding the $600 billion "fiscal cliff" of spending cuts and tax rises due within days.

Gold will break its four-week losing streak today if the spot price ends the week above $1657 an ounce, while spot silver needs to close above $30.03 an ounce to do likewise.

Silver Recent Price Drop is Just a Storm in a Teacup / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Many silver longs were upset by the rather sharp drop over the past week or so, but as we will now see, this drop looks like a 'storm in a teacup' on longer-term charts.

On its 12-year chart, which goes back to the start of the bullmarket, we can see that the top boundary of the uptrend from 2004 is defined by the line drawn across 4 important peaks, and it is from this line that the parallel supporting trendline beneath is derived.

Gold Bugs Christmas Cheer / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

While the price of gold has languished in a trading range much of the year, leaving some investors scratching their heads, many have been buying – and in some cases, really loading up.

It's a tad puzzling that gold hasn't broken into new highs, despite enough catalysts to move a herd of stubborn mules. But that's the hand we're dealt right now. We can't get up from the table until the game reaches its conclusion. Besides, I think the stall in prices is giving us one last window to buy before prices break permanently into higher levels for this cycle.

Why QE3 is so Bullish for Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Silver has been selling off relentlessly since the Federal Reserve expanded its third quantitative-easing campaign last week.  As that decision was highly inflationary, silver’s subsequent weakness has really vexed traders.  But its counter-intuitive selloff had nothing to do with fundamentals.  As the Fed’s past QE campaigns demonstrated abundantly, QE3 will eventually prove to be very bullish for silver’s fortunes.

Gold from the Non U.S. Dollar Perspective / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: P_Radomski_CFA

This was a week of declines for precious metals, very strong ones, indeed. It seems that the main culprit was not the U.S. dollar, that should have actually helped the whole sector, as it declined heavily too, but the fears concerning the “fiscal cliff”, that we discussed some time ago, and the lack of any solutions from the government so far. We believe that as soon as the problem is solved, the whole sector will rally strongly. That is even more likely, as gold and silver are currently extremely oversold, as we’ll see in the technical part of this essay. To see the true magnitude of the plunge, and try to guess where we can go from this point, we’ll have a look at the yellow metal from the perspective of different currencies. But first things first – we’ll start with the usual long-term chart of gold priced in USD (charts courtesy by http://stockcharts.com.)
