Gold And Silver At Crucial Juncture, European Banks Under Pressure As Investors Celebrate QE2 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeb Handwerger writes: Ben Bernanke has officially announced quantitative easing and the markets are reacting with rising prices amongst all asset classes. "QE2" is practically an economic tool to artificially raise asset prices to prevent deflationary forces. When prices in asset prices decline due to a lack of demand you have deflation. Quantitative easing essentially is a preventive approach for central banks to prevent deflationary forces. This techniques is used when a Central Bank can no longer lower interest rates due to it being to close to zero, so they just print money devaluing the currency and raising asset prices across the board.

Is the Rise in the Gold Price Just a Fall in the Dollar? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

As we write, the gold price is about to assault the $1,400 level having been $1,332 on Wednesday of this week, a day ahead of the Fed announcement. Against the pound sterling, the yen the Swiss franc and most other currencies the dollar has weakened too. In the days ahead of that announcement the dollar had been wavering between $1.38 and $1.40 against the euro. After the announcement the U.S. dollar fell quickly down to $1.42 against the euro. But then the dollar recovered and is sitting at $1.41. Recently gold has again moved in the opposite direction to the dollar, until it ran up in the euro vigorously, so has this now changed again? Can there be more to the rise in gold than just the fall in the dollar? We believe so, because far more than QE 2 happened this week.

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF WHOLESALE gold bullion ticked back from a new US Dollar record in morning trade in London on Friday, setting a new all-time-high London Fix of $1384.20 per ounce after what one trader called Thursday's "phenomenal" gains.

Gold and Commodity Investors Profiting As the Fed Creates More Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest news to depress me is that incomes were reported down 0.1%, and the latest news about spending is that spending is up 0.2%.

The reason that it was extraordinarily depressing for me is that I was trying, in vain, to explain to the drooling half-witted pinhead idiot seated next to me at the bar that I think that "spending" is actually waaAAAaaay down, because, while total spending is up, it is mostly because prices have risen so much that people buy fewer things overall, but pay more per item that they do still buy, which they do because of the rapid decline of their standards of living caused by the loss of buying power of the dollar as a result of the Federal Reserve creating so many more of them.

I can guess the bear argument before they begin to make it. The republicans win congress and there will be a new mandate. Spending will be cut. Money printing may cease. We may have austerity in the US. The US Dollar will rally. This will crush the bull market in precious metals.

Gold’s Toxic Noose Is Untied: Next Crude Oil $150 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven a Gold Sceptic can go along with the idea that Ron Paul could buy a smart outfit with one ounce of gold in 1920 (including shoes), and that’s how much he would need in 2010.

Although by that marker he would have needed four ounces in 2007, given that the sort of tailors that Ron frequents have slashed their prices in half; and the price of gold has doubled. But that’s just splitting hairs…Big Picture, it’s not a bad storyline, and the message is that gold holds value, regardless of how insane governments get.

Gold Jumps $50 in 21 Hours as Fed Devalues the Dollar with $600bn QE2 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD in wholesale dealing leapt at the start of US trading on Thursday, extending an overnight rise to within 0.5% of last month's record highs – and gaining $50 per ounce inside 21 hours – as the US Dollar sank in response to the Federal Reserve's hotly-anticipated "QEII" asset purchase program.

"Currency devaluation remains firmly en vogue," said one London bullion dealer this morning.

Junior Gold Miners Becoming Attractive Takeover Targets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere have been some exciting mergers and acquisitions (M&As) within the junior mining sector over the past few months. As gold and silver settle from the previous move, many projects will be rerated and acquired by majors that are struggling with decreasing resources. I believe the industry is undergoing consolidation and we are seeing the beginning of a major international race to control future gold and silver ounces in the ground. The bull market in gold and silver is intact and, though we may see some short-term pullbacks in bullion prices, the junior mining sector will continue to outperform.

Silver Breaks Out From Price Manipulation, The Gains Will be Breath Taking / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA love affair with silver is so natural. The fundamentals are astoundingly positive and bullish in price prospects. My basic argument has been repeated many times. Industry has countless uses for silver, significant demand. But industry has only miniscule isolated uses for gold, in trivial demand. So silver wins on the Demand side of the equation. Central banks own a huge amount of gold. They frequently sell it, even through their slippery surrogate the Intl Monetary Fund. Central banks own zero silver. So silver wins on the Supply side of the equation.

Why Investing in Gold Will Save Your Butt / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen I got back to the office, the place was abuzz, all stemming from how my boss wanted to "see me" as soon as I got back from wherever the hell I was. I knew what it was about. It was about old man Sanderson and the stupid Sanderson account.

The problem was that I had just seen the Britebart.tv video of the megalomaniacal and totally incompetent Harry Reid, Congressional Representative from Nevada and doofus extraordinaire, saying, "But for me, we'd be in a worldwide depression."

Gold Positive QE2, Sovereign Debt and Chinese Demand Projected to Double in a Decade / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver rose again yesterday with silver reaching a new nominal 30 year high. Both are higher in trading today as markets await concrete data regarding the scale of the second phase of quantitative easing. QE2 may already be priced into the markets but a smaller than expected figure could see money come off the table. A higher than expected figure could see further gains in all markets and further increase the risk of asset bubbles.

The Changing Landscape in Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhereas the apparent robust performance of major indices around the world suggests the world is returning to something approaching normal, what we’re really seeing is a long line of traps being set to snag a fresh round of suckers who fall for the mainstream smokescreen. With another US$1 Trillion on the way from the Fed to further devalue the dollar, and with other nations thereby comforted sufficiently to follow suit, gold and silver prices can do naught but rise.
