Fireworks in Europe Confirm that Gold and Silver are Still the Safe Havens / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: George_Maniere

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExpecting good news from Europe today? Guess again.

Relative Strength Analysis is Important for Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Relative strength is defined as the measuring of one market against another over a specific period of time. Relative strength is an important concept in any bull market. After all, if you’ve found the bull market why not find the leaders? We consider relative strength particularly important when analyzing gold and silver stocks. There are hundreds of gold and silver stocks and despite the larger trend, they won’t always trend in the same direction. As a result, you need to be a stock picker in this sector if you want to earn the best returns.

Can Germany Support The Eurozone Without Nuclear Energy? / Commodities / Uranium

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGermany (EWG) has taken the path away from nuclear following Fukushima by shutting down their reactors and importing natural gas from Russia (RSX) and nuclear energy from France(EWQ). This move away from nuclear is no way to run a modern industrial nation which has heretofore been the strongest economy in the Eurozone area continuously bailing out their debt ridden neighbors. After this move we hear news that the once burgeoning German economy is grinding to a halt due to a "sharp drop in energy production after the government shut down eight nuclear plants after the Fukushima reactor disaster in Japan."

Silver in Late Stages of Base Building / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Over the past week silver has behaved as predicted in the last update, breaking down from its potential Pennant pattern and dropping gently back towards support in the $29 - $30 area, to enter our "accumulation zone" shown on its 4-month chart which turned it higher on Friday, and while the pattern could still be a bear Pennant with an amended lower boundary this is looking considerably less likely - it looks like the Pennant has aborted. It is thus thought that we are late in the base building process.

Gold Aborts Bearish Pennant, Now Looks Strongly Bullish / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTechnically the picture for gold now looks strongly bullish. Action played out last week exactly as predicted in the last update with gold breaking down from its Pennant pattern AND ABORTING THE BEARISH IMPLICATIONS OF THE PENNANT, by dropping back modestly instead of plunging. It arrived back in our target zone near $1600 on Thursday and then reversed quite sharply to the upside on Friday. While nothing is guaranteed in this business and there is still a reduced chance of its being a Pennant with an amended lower boundary, this action implies that a positive QE-rich resolution of sorts of the acute problems in Europe is imminent, despite the severe and intractable problems there.

The Eurozone Wags the Gold and Silver Dog / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf Greece defaults and the European situation begins to spin out of control where will money flow? It would not make sense for market participants to buy Euro’s during a default regardless of whether the default it structured or not. In fact, it is more likely that European central banks and businesses would be looking to either hedge their Euro exposure or convert their cash positions to another currency all together.

What’s Going On With Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After a four-day losing streak, gold prices finally broke to the upside as the US dollar weakened. Early Friday morning, gold futures for December delivery gained $37 to reach $1,650. Meanwhile, silver futures climbed more than $1 to hit $31.50. Not only has Europe been keeping equities on edge, but also precious metals. Massive sovereign debts, along with a constant flow of conflicting headlines, have given the US dollar some newfound strength. This recent strength has been one of the factors weighing on gold and silver prices.
