The Easy Oil Is Gone So Where Do We Look Now? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

In 2008, Canadian economist Jeff Rubin stunned the oil market with a bold prediction: With the world economy growing at 5 percent a year, oil demand would grow with it, outpacing supply, thus lifting the oil price from $147 to over $200 a barrel.

The former chief economist at CIBC World Markets was so convinced of his thesis, he wrote a book about it. "Why the World is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller" forecast a sea change in the global economy, all driven by unsustainably high oil prices, where domestic manufacturing is reinvigorated at the expense of seaborne trade and people's choices become driven by the ever-increasing prices of fossil fuels.

Gold: The Good, Bad, and Truly Ugly / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

THE GOLD STANDARD:  Although it may be unrealistically optimistic, I believe my paraphrase of a Churchill quote:

“Central Bankers will eventually do the right thing and return to a gold standard after they have exhausted all other alternatives.”

While central bankers are exhausting all other alternatives, I worry about the collateral damage to 90% of the population who are not first in line on the fiat money gravy train that benefits the financial and political elite.

Eurozone Gold Holdings Increase to 10,792 Tonnes As “Reserve of Safety” Amidst Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: GoldCore

The Euro zone raised its gold holdings by 7.437 tonnes to 10,791.885 tonnes in January, International Monetary Fund data released overnight showed.

The rise in gold holdings was small in tonnage terms and in percentage terms  – especially when viewed in the light of the recently launched ECB’s EUR 1 trillion QE monetary experiment.

Is Gold Investing Risk Free? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Axel_Merk

I’ve long argued that there may not be any safe asset anymore and that investors may want to take a diversified approach to something as mundane as cash. But what about gold? When I mentioned in a recent interview that not even gold is ‘risk free,’ it raised some eyebrows in the gold community. Let me elaborate.

The Bull Case For Gold Price 2015, and the Bear / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Bob_Kirtley

There are many opposing views as to what will drive the price of gold this year and in which direction. We will discuss these views and the major factors that have contributed to their formation. Gold is a function of monetary policy just as currencies are, so we will cover on the actions and current stance of major central banks with a heavy focus on the Fed and the US economy. We currently hold the view that the Fed will hike this year and that this will drive gold to new lows before the end of 2015.

Is Crude Oil Price Returning To $100 Or Dropping To $10? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

If you have been following the price of oil over the last few months, the chances are you're a little confused. On the one hand you have the likes of A. Gary Shilling who, in this Bloomberg article, loudly trumpets the prospect of oil at $10/Barrel, and on the other there is T. Boone Pickens, who, at the end of last year was predicting a return to $100 within 12-18 months. Pickens prediction has moderated somewhat as WTI and Brent crude have continued to fall, but in January he was still saying that oil would return to $70 or $80/barrel in the near future. So, who is correct?

Gold Price Just Needs More Time / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Bob_Loukas

The Gold market appears to be in reverse gear at present. It’s at fresh 6 week lows with a 2nd Daily Cycle that continues to wind lower, and is showing nothing that’s at all positive. Gold is trading very lethargically, and is uninteresting from most perspectives.

Assets move higher or lower in direct relation to the sentiment of traders and investors. And sentiment swings like a pendulum, from bullish to bearish and then back again. Sentiment is the primary driver of demand, with greater buyer engagement – both in numbers and enthusiasm – required to drive prices higher. Unfortunately for Gold bulls, it appears that the sentiment pendulum has already peaked, and is heading back toward bearish lows. We see this clearly in the COT reports, with traders continuing to shift from net Long to net Short positions. The report’s actual survey data confirms that sentiment for the current Investor Cycle has topped, and is now in decline.

Gold Price Downtrend Looks Set to Continue / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Clive_Maund

The reaction back by gold over the past month was preceded by an explosion in Commercial short and Large Spec long positions. On gold's 6-month chart we can see that this reaction has been quite deep, and that it has taken the price back down below the neckline of a potential Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern, where it should have found support and turned up again. The fact that it didn't is a negative development, that opens up the risk of a retreat back to the vicinity of the lows, although as it is short-term oversold here and on a support level, it could bounce first, then head lower. Moving averages are in a potentially strongly bearish configuration on a medium-term basis, as the 50-day is rolling over beneath a still falling 200-day.

Silver Price Depressing Downtrend Will Eventually End / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Clive_Maund

Following the recent explosion in Commercial short and Large Spec long positions in silver, followed by a breakdown below the neckline of a potential Head-and-Shoulders bottom, the outlook for silver is bearish, with the metal stuck in a stubborn downtrend.

On its 6-month chart we can see how its advance early in the year hit a wall at its falling 200-day moving average, when Commercial short positions exploded, as we noted at the time on the site, and it has since reacted back, and with it failing to stabilize at the support at the neckline of the potential Head-and-Shoulders bottom, the medium-term outlook is bleak, which will not be changed by any bounces occasioned by the fact that it is now short-term oversold.

Gold and Silver Stocks or General Stock Market Indices? / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

I would like to start this Weekend Report by looking at the HUI:SPX ratio chart I posted late Friday night that shows a time objective out to October of this year. If both the time and price elements play out according to this ratio chart then the HUI should be close to a major bottom making a round trip from bull market to bear market and back to a bull market again against the SPX. There doesn't have to be a V bottom as good bottoms take time to build out.

Copper Commodity Price Technical Outlook / Commodities / Copper

By: Austin_Galt

Copper got a bit of press attention recently with headlines of a plunge in price. This was in early January and I hadn't looked at the copper chart for a few days and I was gobsmacked when I did. A plunge they say?! What a load of baloney!! If that was a plunge then they are in for a big shock later this year if my analysis is correct.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's start with the small picture and then come back to the big picture which will reveal the likely shock in store.

U.S. Dollar and Investing in Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Richard_Mills

Duck Quacks and Golden Echoes - The US Dollar, on a slippery slope for years, has reversed and broken out against every major currency and developing economy currency . A global wide quantitative easing (QE) is happening. Almost every central bank (Sweden's Riksbank became the 14th central bank to ease monetary policy in 2014) is now creating money as fast as they can potentially leading to a global liquidity storm.

Gold And Silver – Banker’s Grip On Precious Metals Not Over! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

To leave the EU or not to leave the EU, that is the question? Pick any hour, and you will have an answer that is good until the next hour passes. While there have been cheers and encouragement for what the newly elected Syriza party has been telling the EU, that no more debt enslavement will work for Greek citizens, it could very well turn out that Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis are waiting for the best deal for themselves before ensuring that Greek citizens remain so enslaved. It is extremely difficult to fight the elite’s system and win.
