Balancing a Portfolio with Commodities / Commodities / Learning to Invest

By: Frank_Holmes

With all of the volatility we're seeing in 2008, this is one of those times when investors really value assets that are not correlated to the broader markets.

That explains much of the current interest in commodities – investors are looking for ways to protect themselves through diversification.

Silver Violent Correction Towards Buying Territory / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough it may retreat a little more over the next week or two, Silver is now at/close to buying territory after its violent correction last week. Much of what has been written in the Gold Market update applies equally to silver and so readers are asked to refer to this information in that update.

Gold Dramatic Correction Back into Buying Territory / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is back in buying territory after its dramatic correction back to key intermediate trendline support.

In the last update we were looking for gold to break out above the $1,000 level. It did and briefly got to about $1030 before it turned tail and dropped precipitously. Interestingly, the short-lived run at $1030 occurred last Sunday at the time of the Bear Stearns emergency, and the time when the crisis was at its most acute was the point at which gold topped out, which is what one would expect.

Gold and Silver Analysis- What Goes Up Must Come Down,,,, / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The current trend now is clearly down as confirmed by violation of the 5-week sma on Tuesday and it should be expected that rallies will be used as an opportunity to further liquidate long positions. And because gold in has moved so far so fast a substantial decline will likely ensue. But it would take a move below $750, that's over 25% from Monday's high, before there's serious damage to the bull market. It may not look pretty between now an then, but until conditions change, the 50-week moving average serves as support for the bull market.” ~ Precious Points: Gold Gets Sold , March 19, 2008

Gold Downward Spiral Targeting Primary Up-trendline at $840 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

What does one say after a week like this past one? Memories of an old movie come to mind and the saying “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times”, then off they went to the guillotine. Those with their heads still intact might eventually benefit down the road.

GOLD : LONG TERM
For those with a long term focus the long term P&F chart suggests that there is still no worry about a bear market. The price of gold would have to drop to the $885 level to break below both a (secondary) up trend line and two previous lows, or more importantly must move to the $840 level to break below the primary up trend line. Should such a break come, that would project down to the $720 level for now, but first things first. Let's check where we are with the normal charts and indicators.

The US Fed Engineered Commodities Price Plunge / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world-wide fiat system functions like a roach motel: Investors check in - but they NEVER check out! By it's latest hit on commodities, the Fed as the system-leader gave investors a shot across the bow. The message: "If you try to leave, we will hurt you!"

("Leaving the fiat system" here means to store your wealth in more tangible forms that are not as susceptible to engineered currency collapses.)

Gold Trading has Changed Due to Impact of Gold ETF Holdings / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Handbury

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe introduction of Gold Exchange Traded Funds (GETFs) has changed the fundamental supply and demand dynamics of the gold market. Now goldbugs, rather than crudely storing gold in their basements, can buy shares in companies that actually store the physical gold bars in secure warehouses.

HUI Gold Stocks Bull Market Hit by Seasonal Selling / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter an incredibly volatile week for the precious metals, PM-stock traders are very worried. Despite Bernanke's Fed forcing real interest rates even more massively negative , gold plunged. The PM-stock traders, never paragons of courage anyway, panicked. The HUI gold-stock index plummeted with gold.

We were stopped out of a lot of trades in the carnage, but the great thing about stop losses is they automatically get your capital out early in a sharp plunge. So we are now blessed with lots of dry powder to scoop up irrationally beaten-down bargains. Great opportunities have bloomed! I will discuss our trading strategy in depth, including specific new trades, early next week in Zeal Speculator .

SO THE MONEY-CHANGERS didn't get thrown out of the temple this Easter Week. Instead, they got open-ended support from the money-lender of last resort, and snapped up a near-broken bank for $2 a share.

Gold Sinks Like a Stone to $906 On Heavy Investment Fund Liquidation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD sank as European markets opened for business on Thursday, giving back a 2% rally in Asia to plummet towards a new one-month low, just shy of $906 per ounce.

Bouncing more than 12% beneath Monday's all-time record high of $1,034, the Gold Market then rallied to record an AM Fix in London of $913.50 per ounce – its lowest level since Feb. 18th.

Interesting Development with Gold and Gold Shares / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHave a look at the green Relative Strength Charts below. Either the shares need to (soon) start rising relative to gold or the gold price needs to start falling relative to the shares. If the gap in the gold price chart below (at around $850 per ounce) is covered, that will be a very healthy development.

DELEVERAGING- Gold and Commodities Teetering on the Brink of a Bear Market? / Commodities / Financial Markets

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and other commodities plunged below key short-term support levels following Tuesdays US Interest rate cut to 2.25%. The consensus seems to see this as a healthy correction or is this a signal for a potential end of the commodities bull market?

My view for some months has been that the west will move from a period of stagflation (the present) to a period of deflation towards the end of this year. Therefore at some point during this year the commodities bull markets would be expected to recognise this change in fundamentals and peak well before deflation makes itself evident. The major trend expectations are illustrated in the below graph from an earlier article on the current stagflation and future deflation prospects.

Prepared Speech: IQPC Base Metals Investment Summit 2008 / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Mack_Frankfurter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, there was an article in the Financial Times titled: “Plummeting dollar a big headache for pegged currencies.” Between hedge fund margin calls, the Fed's $236 billion plan to boost liquidity, Bear Stearns take-under by JP Morgan, and not least Elliot Spitzer's self-destruction, why focus on this particular back page headline? The reason this article caught our eye is that it focused attention on what we believe is the near-term “end game” within a longer-term era of commodity inflation—in other words, a significant correction of some duration within the context of a long-term secular bull market in commodities.

Gold Gets Sold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Crude Oil and Commodities Get Clobbered Whilst Equities Barely Changed / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat do you know, the ProShares UltraShort Oil & Gas ETF (AMEX: DUG) is going up, but the major equity market ETFs, like Q's, SPY, DIA, are barely going down! In other words, it is just the energy sector (XLE) and other commodity sectors, that are getting clobbered while the main equity sectors behave very well after a 4% advance. This is what I was thinking on Monday when I managed to buy the high of the DUG-- that the energy and commodity trades (the crowed ones like gold and oil) were about kaput on the upside, which should in theory reverse, sending the DUG above 42.20 into the 45.00-46.00 target zone.

Credit Crisis Hits Gold As Margin Calls Hit Investment Funds / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD and gold futures prices sank as the US open drew near on Wednesday, falling almost 3% to bounce off a seven-session low as oil prices and soft commodities continued to tick lower and European stocks climbed back from an earlier 1.2% drop.

In Australia a major real-estate investment fund today faced a A$30 million margin call (US$27.9m), reports the Herald Sun, while the highly-geared Wesfarmers fund denied rumors it could only re-finance an outstanding US$3.7 billion private-equity debt at 4% above prevailing cash rates.

Gold Healthy Consolidation Following US Interest Rate Cut / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was up $2.20 to $1003 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday while silver was down 30 cents to $19.89 per ounce. In illiquid electronic trading after the Federal Reserve cut interest rates by 75 basis points, very counter intuitively gold fell in value by nearly 2%. With gold already up by more than 19% so far this year (some 10 weeks), consolidation is healthy and to be expected.

Agricultural Commodities Correction Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Corrections are a friend of investors. Same is true for professional traders. Traders on Main Street enjoy them less. Learn to take advantage of them, rather than be buffeted by them. Investors should be anticipating any possible correction in their favorite industries in order to make timely purchases. Currently, for example, the Agri-Food sector may be developing one of the first good corrections in some time. Cash prices for many Agri-Food commodities have retreated.
