Money Talks, Gold Shouts / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the second quarter of 2008, when it became clear that bankrupted financial institutions would be bailed out by the federal government, gold did a funny thing. In the wake of a financial crisis of that magnitude, one normally would have expected asset prices, including gold, to plummet. Most observers expected the metal to dip from the $800 level down to $600, or below. Instead, gold held up well during the teeth of the crisis, and has recently increased to just over $1,000.

Reasons for Major Gold Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore the Hat Trick Letter was launched, a little splash was made when a Jackass Nobody wrote “25 Reasons Why Gold Will Rise” in November 2002. It was so many years ago that the piece no longer appears in archives. The motive for the article was simple. Just too much pure nonsense and genuine rubbish had appeared in the financial press about why gold was rising. ‘THEY’ claimed the gold price was rising from MidEast tensions, from new global tensions due to a False Flag attack on New York City in broad daylight, and from other factors clearly irrelevant to gold. It was not disinformation so much as stark ignorance and stupidity, perhaps even compromised marketing from the fiat bowels on Wall Street. The crack analysts in financial circles overlooked the negative real interest rates offered by central banks, as the miniscule official rates were overwhelmed by price inflation, thus rendering gold a free pass profitable investment. Stupid inane mindless drivel continues to pour out today as to why gold has reached the $1000 level.

By: Adrian_Ash

Gold Succumbs to Profit Taking / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: GoldCore

Gold may have succumbed to profit taking and has slipped to $992.50/oz. It constantly rebounded to challenge $1000/oz yesterday and if this happens again, gold is likely to regain its momentum and challenge the March 2008 record highs of just over $1,030/oz. If the profit taking continues, fresh investors will possibly wait in the wings to gauge the best entry point.

Derivatives Collapse and the New China Gold and Silver Markets / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Bob_Chapman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2009, China opened up various exchanges for investment in both gold and silver to the Chinese public, which previously was not allowed to invest in gold and silver. The opening of silver exchanges to the Chinese public is the most recent development and was accompanied by a ban on silver exports. The Chinese government is actively touting both gold and silver as an investment to the Chinese public, and with good reason. The yuan, like the dollar and virtually all other paper currencies, with the exception of the euro, are one hundred percent fiat currencies backed by absolutely nothing but government promises which aren't worth the powder to blow them to hell. Even the euro's gold backing is pathetic at best. Initially it was a respectable 15%, but the backing is probably now about half of that due to Washington Agreement gold sales and surreptitious gold leasing.

Gold Price Steady at $999 on the 9/09/09 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: GoldCore

Gold: An expected period of profit taking pushed gold back from its high of $1007/oz yesterday. However, a very good indicator of gold’s sustainability has been visible today as it has constantly tested the $1000/oz level. It is currently trading at $999.30 and a strong hold above $1000/oz for a couple of closes should clear away profit takers, stage fresh entry points for new investors and mount an assault on fresh highs. The London PM Fix was at $999.50/oz.

Gold Targets New High After Busting Through $1,000 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Is gold ready to break out?

Gold broke through the psychologically important $1,000-an-ounce level for the first time in 18 months yesterday (Tuesday) as the U.S. dollar slumped against key foreign currencies, exacerbating investor fears that loose fiscal and monetary policies will spur inflation as the U.S. economy recovers.

Can Trend Following End In The Commodity Markets? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Andrew_Abraham

The question is… Can trend following end? First of all… anything can happen and it will happen. However as a long time trend follower, in my opinion there are numerous reasons why I do not believe trend following can or will end. The question came up when I was in a meeting with an institutional investor earlier in the week and in all of his years exposed just to the equities markets, he was skeptical of trend following. He asked if everyone knew the concept of trend following the results would falter.

Deflation and Inflation Impact on Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe deflation-versus-inflation debate emerges as the flavor-of-the-day as we set out on what's likely to be a bumpy ride toward recovery, says Jon Nadler, Senior Metals Market Analyst and Investment Products Manager for Montreal-based Kitco Bullion Dealers. For the time being, Jon expects a spell of continuing deflation before any real inflation sets in. That makes gold's price performance a tough call, he tells The Gold Report, because we have no history to help us understand how gold behaves in a real deflationary environment

Bullish Technical Set-Up for DBC Commodity Index ETF / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the breakdown in the Dollar, and the powerful thrust in crude oil prices, and buoyancy in metals such as gold, silver, alumininum, copper, and the industrial metals, the pattern that is developing in the PowerShares DB Commodity Index ETF (NYSE: DBC) is fairly conspicuous. Let's notice that Friday's low at 21.42 was followed by today's potent up-gap open and strong action-- the type of action expected at the end of a correction (in this case off of the 8/05 high at 24.00), and at the beginning of a meaningful rally effort.
