Crude Oil Manipulation Reality, Close Look at the Almost Perfect Crime / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome time ago, GATA Secretary / Treasurer Chris Powell gave a speech titled, There are no markets anymore, just interventions.  These sage words have stuck in my head.  While Mr. Powell was specifically referencing manipulations in the precious metals markets, I am revisiting the concept as it relates to the crude oil market.

Has Barrick Mining Been Barricked by the U.S.? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to an announcement dated September 8, 2009, Barrick is going to throw into the dustbin its long-standing hedge policy, and pay for buying back its hedge-book by diluting the value of its common stocks through issuing more than 81 million new shares, or about 10 percent of the outstanding. The so-called hedges of Barrick have been thoroughly discredited and will soon be history. So-called, because the long-term forward sales contracts in question that the parvenu gold miner has invented and flaunted are not proper hedges and never have been. They are a fraud. They are naked short positions pretending to be balanced by gold ore reserves in the moon (or on this earth which, for hedging purposes, is practically the same thing). Part of the newsworthy story, of course, is the fact that the hedge book of Barrick has been increasingly under water for some nine years now, threatening the unfriendly giant with drowning.

Gold Sees Further Profit Taking / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: GoldCore

Gold saw further profit taking yesterday and fell to support at $982/oz. Thereafter it staged an impressive rally and briefly broke back through $1000/oz. Currently, it has fallen just below this level but is constantly testing that mark and appears to be consolidating at the $1,000/oz mark. With the dollar under significant pressure, a test of new highs should be imminent.

Precious Metals, What Do I Do Now? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: David_Morgan

It seems more and more people are waking up to the fact that gold and silver are not only moving up but are also much safer investments currently than any other alternative. At the present time, I treat the commodity differently than I treat the underlining mining equities. As far as buying bullion or coins, basically I think investors should buy them at any time. Certainly you’re better off buying silver at $15.00 than you are if you’re buying it at $20.00, but the metals themselves, from a long-term perspective, will preserve your wealth and possibly multiply it. Many agree that the real metal is your core position. That is the investment that really counts the most.

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.

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.
