Gold Lacks Relative Strength / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is not going to breakout anytime soon. Its relative strength or lack thereof, is the chief reason. Gold has been rising recently, only due to the positive tide in most markets. In the chart below, you can see that the various ratio charts have formed a negative divergence to Gold. Gold has not only been weak against commodities and stocks but also foreign currencies. On the positive side, the ratio charts have formed a serious long-term positive divergence. Relatively speaking, Gold has bested its 2008 highs in most forms, but not in US dollars.

Crude Oil Price Rocked by Investory Data / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTerrible inventory data (much more than expected) has rocked the long side of crude oil this AM and the U.S. Oil Fund ETF (NYSE:  USO).  The price structure has pressed beneath its RISING 50 DMA at $66.29 into the low $63.50 area so far, and could be heading for a test of its 4 month support line, now at $61.30. Although today's action certainly has the fundamental catalyst to continue lower, let's be aware that the prior correction from the June highs above $73.00 into the July 13th low at $58.32 represents a completed MAJOR CORRECTION.

Gold Price Implodes, What Happened to the Gold Market? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: INO

I think it came as a big surprise to many traders that the gold market imploded on Tuesday pushing to its lowest levels in several days.

The downward spiral was enough to trigger a daily "Trade Triangle" which moved us into the neutral camp on this market. Exiting our long gold position based on our "Trade Triangle" signals produced a very small profit or in some cases of break even trade.

China the 800lb Gorilla of Commodities Demand / Commodities / Articles

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIncreasing the money supply invariably leads to inflation—but that's not the only factor driving it. "Populist policies that are focused on protectionism and unionism will force inflation in America," says Frank Holmes, CEO and chief investment officer at U.S. Global Investors. While he doesn't anticipate across-the-board inflation, he does foresee certain commodities having stronger inflation than others. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Frank discusses changing patterns in commodity prices and how investors can gauge where they're headed next.

Rearranging Deck Chairs On The U$$ Titanic / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica’s paper empire is slowly sinking into the sea, and all the powers that be can do about it is rearrange the deck chairs for a while as they wait for the inevitable. Increasingly, more and more people are comparing the US to Japan, and it’s 20-plus year bear market / economic doldrums, realizing try as they might, the prognosis for American is a match. This is of course why the stock market trading patterns are a match, because once you bubblize the real estate market (Japan peaked in 1990) it’s all over, as this assures a structural high in credit creation that cannot be fixed as easily as floating a new CDO, or throwing a trillion or two at the bond market. Nope – once you play that card, as Sir Allen did back in 2002 to counter the negative effects of the tech wreck, yet another bubble he inspired, there’s nothing left to do but inflate with abandon and hope nobody notices.

Waiting for Crude Oil to Reverse to the Downside / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My optimal pullback target zone for the PowerShare DB Double Short Oil ETN (NYSE: DTO) is 82.00-79.00, which has been met today.  However, so far the inability of the DTO to turn up with sustainability and leave little doubt that the correction off of the 7/13 high at 99.50 is complete is bothersome, and suggests perhaps that more corrective weakness is forthcoming ahead of my anticipation of a powerful upside pivot reversal.

Silver Increasingly Bearish COT Data / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough silver moves very much in lockstep with gold, it is looking considerably stronger than gold at this point. The reason for this is its role as an industrial commodity - when the stockmarket is high and rising, as now, silver usually outperforms gold, but once the stockmarket turns, silver then underperforms.

Gold and Gold Stocks at Risk of Serious Reversal / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe chances of gold breaking out to new highs in the near future are rapidly diminishing as the heavy hitters who have always prevailed up to this point are dramatically ramping up their short positions. Our COT chart shows a big increase in Commercial short positions just over the week up to last Tuesday to levels that in the past have preceded major reactions in gold. While there is still a fair chance of gold making a run at its highs over the short-term, there is considered to be very little chance now of a breakout to new highs, and any such advance towards the highs would likely be accompanied by a further ballooning of Commercial short positions to an even more extreme level that would all but guarantee a heavy reaction.

Agri-Food's Investing Bypasses Illusory Stimulus Driven Economic Growth / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome, and perhaps more than we imagine, economic sectors are immune to the failing economic policies of the Obama Regime. Those industries being driven by the dominant global trends should be somewhat resilient to the ongoing economic problems of the U.S. However, none will totally escape as the U.S. is such an important economic center of consumption. How do investors escape this reliance on U.S. economic activity level? The answer is, quite simply, Agri-Food.

Precious Metals Rally Running Out of Steam, Or Going a Lot Higher? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the previous essay I wrote the following: Recently the precious metals market has been influenced by developments in the general stock market, which contributed to a considerable extent to its recent downswing and subsequent rally. At the moment, the technical situation for the main stock indices is favorable, which means that precious metals are likely to move higher as well.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommodities are trying to hold their ground and could go either way quickly. There is a lot of chatter going on about gold and silver. I am hearing extreme theories from everyone I talk with. Generally when I see the market get jumpy we tend to see volatility increase which translates into sharp rallies or sell offs.

The Day the U.S. Dollar Died and Gold was Reborn / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Bill_Downey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWho would have thought that the information age would be so confusing?  Given the same set of conditions, man has this tendency to find different interpretations of the same data.  For instance, there is a huge inflation/deflation debate going on.  The problem (for some of us) is that both sides can and do give good argument for their respective side.  When I read a good deflation article, I am convinced that it will be so.  That is, until I read a good inflation article.  Then I tend to start thinking inflation again.

Will Big U.S. Banks Be Forced to Cover Large Gold Short Positions? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor many years, accusations that JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America and Goldman Sachs have wide open and huge, exposed short positions against gold and silver, have been made by groups like GATA and others. In the United States these four banks control over 90% of the derivatives market. They too will be subject to "substantial supervision and regulations," including conservative capital requirements and strong business conduct standards. U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is set to propose giving securities and futures regulators authority to police the over-the-counter derivatives market. Discussions on these regulations begin next week.
