Gold the Ultimate Safehaven as U.S. Dollar Crashes / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold’s safe haven credentials have been reaffirmed in recent days as the dollar’s safe haven appeal is increasingly being questioned (see News and Commentary section of homepage). The scale and speed of the decline of the dollar (and to a lesser extent sterling) in recent days is unprecedented.

Bernanke's Quantitative Easing Good for Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo, it comes to this. The Fed announced the most anticipated rate cut in history; though some didn't expect 75-100 bps based on the ecstasy on Wall St after the announcement. This move brings the Fed to the end of Stage One in its battle to save the world from the aftereffects of the credit bubble. The Fed can't cut rates any farther and, based on where short term Treasuries have been trading lately, this move just made official what the market had already priced in. A big upward move in the main US equity indices notwithstanding this was hardly a shocker. The other group that reacted with equal vigor was the currency traders.

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Gold and Gold Stocks 2009 Boost from Central Bank Quantitative Easing Measures / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Fed just cut its Fed Funds target to 0 to .25% and is also likely to use other means to lower interest rates in the US such as buying long term US Treasuries and other bonds directly. The rationale is that merely lowering the Fed Funds rates is not finding its way into credit markets because lenders still don't want to lend.

Gold Stocks Imminent Pullback Buying Opportunity? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith yesterday's historic Fed move and the wild action we have seen in gold the past few months a lot of people have been asking about gold stocks. Since 2002 I have been in and out of the gold market, catching some of the great moves we have seen in the past few years and becoming known as a big believer in the long-term secular bull trend in gold. I also have had a reputation for being objective when it comes to gold, because at times I have taken profits in gold and have sat on the sidelines. Let me tell you what I see now.

Investors Dump Dollars for Gold Physical Metal  / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT GOLD MARKET held inside a tight $10 range early Wednesday after jumping to a nine-week high of $860 per ounce overnight after the US Federal Reserve chose the nuclear-option of zero interest rates.

With US Dollars effectively free to borrow in New York's bank-to-bank market (they already cost just 0.13% last week), crude oil rose back above $45 per barrel on expectations of a major cut to Opec output quotas later today.

Gold Spikes Higher on Unprecedented Fed Interest Rate Cut Low / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe surprise move by the Fed to lower the Fed funds rate by more than 75 basis points to a record low and an unprecedented band between 0.25% and 0% led to sharp falls in the dollar (low of 1.4188 to the euro) and a spike in the gold price to over $859.40/oz.

Upside Seen for Agribusiness ETF / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The Market Vectors Agribusiness ETF (AMEX: MOO) has spent the past 2 1/2 months or so carving out a base-like formation in the aftermath of a multi-month decline from 66.20 to 20.08 (-70%). The base-like pattern should resolve itself to the upside and will represent the central portion of an intermediate-term recovery rally period that should propel the MOO to 30.00-31.00. Only a break below 25.70 will begin to compromise the developing constructive pattern.

Profit from the Commodities Bull Market During 2009 / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Between September 2007 and June 2008, oil prices doubled, gold rose 30% and commodities, in general, advanced by a similar percentage. So why, six months later, when prices have fallen back below last year's levels, does everybody think they won't rise again? The difficulties of extraction haven't gone away, nor have the prospects of increasing consumption in the faster-growing emerging markets such as China. Yes, the prices of commodities are severely affected by marginal moves in supply and demand, but this is ridiculous!

Crude Oil Forecast 2009 and Geopolitical Implications / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: STRATFOR

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil prices have now dipped — albeit only briefly — below US$40 a barrel, a precipitous plunge from their highs of more than US$147 a barrel in July. Just as high oil prices reworked the international economic order, low oil prices are now doing the same. Such a sudden onset of low prices impacts the international system just as severely as recent record highs.

Agri-Foods Representing Rare Value Investment Opportunity / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA funny thing happened on the way to the end of commodity investing for all of time. What was it? Commodity prices bottomed, and started going up. Wow, could the Street strategists possibly be wrong? Is that conceivable? Is not oil at $200 as was forecast? No, that's right, they changed the forecast. Oil is now going to $10 in the Spring. Ignoring the inability of the Street to understand that commodities is really composed of three sectors, one of which is Agri-Food, would probably be wise. The other two are mineral ores, like copper and Gold, and energy, like oil and natural gas.

What Next After Crude Oil's Intraday Plunge? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Oil Trust ETF (NYSE: USO) has plunged over 6% from its early morning rally peak, which is not a surprise from a volatility perspective, but it is a surprise to me IF I thought that a more bullish pattern was under development. In other words, the plunge in the USO has taken back too much of its prior rally to be considered the start of a new bull move.

Gold Facing Comex Delivery Squeeze as Traders Fear Counterparty Risks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold rallied sharply last week and was up nearly 9% despite continuing uncertainty and a very mixed performance in stock markets. The US dollar index fell some 4% on the week and it looks increasingly likely that the dollar may have topped out and may soon resume its bear market. For the year, gold is now up by more than 4% in dollar terms and by much larger amounts in euros (+11.7%) and pounds (+40.4%).

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD BULLION came within $1 of a new two-month high early Monday in London, holding onto last week's 9% jump and recording its best Morning Gold Fix since Oct. 16th for US investors.

Crude oil and the Tokyo Nikkei index both jumped more than 5%, but European stock markets gave back their opening gains by lunchtime.

Gold Backwardation That Shook The World / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Friday, December 12, backwardation on gold was still in force at an annualized discount rate hovering around 2% in the December contract, and 0.3% in February contract. Many readers have asked me how it is that so many other observers fail to see the backwardation. The discrepancy is due to differences in methodology. Most analysts calculate the basis as the difference between February and December futures prices which gives them a positive reading. They use the December futures price as proxy for the spot price. This is clearly wrong. The December futures price is not the same as the spot price, even though we are in December.
