Gold and Silver Picking Up Steam Relative to Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we check in on the current status of gold (GLD) and silver (SLV), it is helpful to review their fundamental appeal to investors. Studying the performance of silver relative to gold is not just for gold bugs; it can help us monitor the health of the ‘risk on trade’ relative to the ‘risk off trade’ in many markets, including stocks (SPY) and commodities (DBC).

Mining Stocks, Gold and Silver: Short Term Bounce or More Meaningful Move? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Recently, investors have been concerned over the possible effect of the expiration of QE2. They have been looking for a clear mission statement in order to understand the effect of government policy on their investment universe. This has sent gold(GDX) and silver(SIL) miners to key support levels and oversold conditions not seen in more than two years. Today came renewed hope for precious metals and mining stock investors from Chairman Bernanke. The U.S. central bank is prepared to provide additional stimulus if the current economic slow patch persists.

Gold and Silver Poised to Surge on Ticking Debt Bombs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver are threatening to break new ground driven by one simple fact: Nearly all wealthy nations are labouring under one form of debt/monetary inflation issue or another. Ireland and Greek bonds have now been reduced to junk, Japanese bonds became safer than Chinese as reports of China’s massive deficits internally offset the rosy picture supported by 9.5% performance in the Chinese economy. Italy is looming large as the next bailout candidate, and the United States prioritize political brinkmanship over problem solving. Gold and silver are seeking new highs and threaten to break out strongly – especially now that the Fed has acknowledged a willingness to launch QE3.

Gold Trade Getting Crowded / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Paulenoff

About six sessions ago, when spot gold was climbing towards its May-July resistance line ($1551), and EUR/USD was pressing lower towards its May-July support line (1.4170/80), I made a judgement call: I decided to buy the euro into its support line, looking for the end of its 9 week bullish consolidation pattern, ahead of a powerful thrust that projected to new highs above 1.5000.

Bernanke Just Lit the Fuse Under Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jason_Hamlin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHello QE3 – Bernanke Just Lit the Fuse on $1,800 Gold and $55 Silver by Year End!

Federal Reserve Chairman “Helicopter” Ben Bernanke indicated that the U.S. economy is at a crossroads this morning, telling Congress the central bank is prepared to provide further stimulus. Investors reacted by dumping dollars, buying stocks and pushing gold to a new all-time high of $1,585. Silver, while still significantly below its 2011 high near $50, has advanced nearly 6% today.

Gold Lack of GLD Demand, Silver Supply Glut Unfolding / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCoins always have to sides. We all are familiar with well-worn story of heads I win and tails you lose. Maybe this time the coin may be far more desirable. Perhaps it is now heads we win, tails the politicians lose. Maybe the markets are telling us that indeed the era of Keynesian socialism is now becoming part of history. Another chapter in the book of dead and failed economic and political ideologies may be in the process of being written.

B.I.S. Gold/Currency Swaps and a Greek Drachma? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

In the last year, according to the B.I.S.'s annual report Central banks have pulled 635 tonnes of gold from the Bank for International Settlements in the past year, the largest withdrawal in more than a decade. The move, disclosed in the BIS's annual report, marks a sharp reversal from the last year when central banks added to deposits of gold at the so-called "bank for central banks".

The Real Rare Earth Elements Demand Investment Opportunity / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinding experienced teams could be elusive in the rush to capitalize on growing demand for heavy rare earth elements. Energy and Scarcity and Outstanding Investments Editor Byron King unearths companies that can deliver the goods along with shareholder value in this exclusive interview with The Critical Metals Report.

The Critical Metals Report: In late June, Takashi Yamanouchi, president of Mazda Motor Corp., said as much as 90% of the world's car engines, including hybrids, will still be gas powered in 20 years. What does that prediction do to the investment thesis that electric vehicles (EVs) will drive the development of rare earth element (REE) deposits? Read full article... Read full article...

New Upleg for Crude Oil? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My hourly pattern work in nearby NYMEX crude oil futures indicates that the structure of the decline from the July 7 high at 99.42 into this morning's low at 93.55 exhibits a completed corrective leg. If accurate this also means that oil has initiated a new upleg within a larger recovery rally period off of the June 27 low at 89.61 that projects above 99.42 into the 101-103 target zone.

Gold Dreamtime, The Euro And Other New Moneys / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce upon a time there was the Eurozone and its all-new hard money, the euro. It got off to a good start with a monstruously high forced surrender cash-in rate for the national moneys it replaced: depending on country, around 15 to 25 percent above the euro's real worth. This yielded several years in the early 2000's when it wasn't even necessary to doctor the official inflation numbers, but through a penchant for old ways and traditions, national economic agencies, the European Commission, the ECB and other rightly named players kept on doing it. This made sure the economic data was absolutely fake, an important aid to launching a now-floundering cuckoo money.

Why the U.S. Should Return to the Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Should the U.S. return to the gold standard?

It's a question that has taken on new relevance during a time of soaring deficits and sky-high national debt. Many of the world's most successful governments, from ancient Rome to the British Empire, enjoyed centuries of economic stability by adhering to a gold standard. And some economists credit the period of prosperity at the end of the 19th century to a global gold standard.

Are Gold Stocks The Real Barbarous Relic? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1924 John Maynard Keynes referred to the gold standard as a “barbarous relic”, but we think the new barbarous relic is using gold stocks as a trading or investment vehicle in an attempt to benefit from rising gold prices. This isn’t the 1970s. One can buy GLD call options from a laptop in bed or take a long position in gold futures with a few taps on a smart phone whilst in line at a coffee shop. The days of having to call a broker and hopefully buy some gold shares that will hopefully go up if the gold price goes up are over. There is no longer any need to take the risk that your gold stocks will not go up with gold.
