Gold Price About to Pull Back / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe charts are not telling a particularly happy story at present.

The attached chart (decisionpoint.com ) tells me that $XAU may start to rise sharply relative to gold. More likely, because the shares have been underperforming, the gold price is likely to pull back sharply relative to shares. The shares may have been right all along.

Agri-Food Stocks Boom Could Continue for Another Decade! / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial engineering has now demonstrated that the destruction of investment wealth can be accomplished for faster and more efficiently using computers. Monoline insurance companies are latest tool in the eradication of wealth. Some way must exist for investors to escape these financially destructive experiences. That escape route may be to seek out and move to trends of future. Agri-Food stocks, as shown by this week's chart, have in past year done quite nicely, and likely will in future. Of course, they will have corrections for such events are natural and healthy events for markets. Corrections provide an opportunity to acquire positions. Why have Agi-Food investments done well?

End of the Credit Cycle Conundrum for Commodities / Commodities / Money Supply

By: David_Petch

Inflationary cycles are always manifested towards the end with rises in commodity prices that become equivalent to a black hole where money gravitates. Increasing the supply of money is the very definition of inflation, with rising prices being a symptom. Interest rate cycles tend to last 20-30 years starting from a decline to a base, followed by peak. Central banks use interest rates as the brakes of an economy and is the primary tool used under fiat currencies. Central Banks could stop printing money, but that would lead to a deflationary collapse, which is not a desirable outcome…so inflation it is. After interest rates rise to cool things on a Cycle Degree, periods of declining interest rates occur which will often see a decline in prices.

Commodities, Natural Resources and Precious Metals Forecasts 2008 - Part IV / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis sector holds the most promise for those who practice simple “Buy and Hold” strategies. The wind is at the back of these markets for the next decade or more as the “Crack up Boom” combines forces with the Austrian economies of the emerging world. Three billion people are emerging into broad new middle classes, on the bid and are sitting on trillions and trillions of IOU's called G7 currencies. Supply constrained, demand lead bull markets are front and center in these sectors. Combine this with the breakdown in the definition of money as a “store of value” and explosive moves are on the horizon.The emerging world has no external debt to speak of and ton's of savings in the bank. They may not be the mindless consumers of the welfare states but their domestic consumption of all commodities, raw materials and metals is growing and will continue to do so at a decent and sustainable pace.

Precious Metals Investors Sit Tight - The Dow / Gold Ratio Story / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't say you were not warned. Warned about what? The coming depression in the global economy perhaps? No – that's not what I am referring to; however, this should be a very big concern to all never the less. Could it be an impending derivatives debacle emanating in the States due to an unexpected bond market implosion brought about by investor concern? No – that's not it either; but again, this is an item everybody should be concerned about considering implications for housing, credit markets, and the economy at large in turn. And certainly these are all legitimate and significant concerns worthy of warning.

Gold Falls Below $900 as Global Stock Market Bounce Continues / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES sank at the start of London trade on Monday, adding to Friday's sharp losses and dropping $12 per ounce from an overnight rally in Asia to fall below $900 for the first time in seven sessions.

Gold Short-term Weakness, Long-term Bullish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA generally okay week BUT with a weak momentum and a collapse on Friday. Let's see if it is of any REAL significance.

GOLD : LONG TERM
The long term P&F chart made a new high X during the week and continues in a bullish trend. There is yet no hint of trouble from the P&F chart but it would not show it for some time. We go to the normal indicators to see if there is any hint of a problem.

Aluminum and Natural Gas - the Next Commodities to Boom? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil prices are up nearly 50 percent over the past year; crude prices accelerated at the end of 2007 as inventories tightened globally. Meanwhile, wheat prices are up more than 100 percent over the same time period amid strong growth in demand from the developing world, ultra-low stocks in some countries and, of course, a boom in biofuels demand powered by government subsidies.

Although wheat isn't an important feedstock for making ethanol, all agricultural commodities are affected by the biofuels boom. The reason is simply that farmers are diverting acres to corn production in an effort to capture sky-high corn prices.

Silver Set for Major Advance towards $30 Within Next Two Months / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver continues to advance this week into the $17 territory and onto a level somewhere we believe in the $20 to $30 range. That difference between $20 and $30 is a lot to investors who are especially leveraged to silver through stocks, options and futures but also to those who hold large quantities of silver be it in ETFs, pool accounts or in other secure deposits.

At this point let me give a brief update on how one of our indicators is getting on. I call it the RMAR or "Relative Moving Average Refined". This technical analysis indicator is a sell signal generator working in the multi year range. Typically a sell signal is flagged every few years depending on whether gold and silver is in a major bear or bull market.

Gold: New Month, New Direction? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Though gold moved to record highs again this week, that doesn't rule out the possibility of a corrective phase having begun earlier this month. A simple three-wave correction could climb as high as $940-950 before being invalidated. Any failure of a pre- or post-Fed rally in this area would suggest a five-wave decline to about $800-830. The Fed… has lost the appetite for disappointing the markets. Though the rate-cut should suggest further upside in metals, this is the context in which readers should… act. Though silver could reach $17.40-17.50 before invalidating a return below $10, support between $12-$15 , especially in the strong band in the $13.75-14.25 area, tends to support further upside.” ~ Precious Points: Can't Keep a Good Metal Down, January 26, 2008

"Wisdom of Crowds" Helps Explain Gold's Price Climb / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll around the world, investors believe in gold.

If you ask them why, you will get a number of explanations and a level of conviction that has endured despite opinions of many “experts” that gold was overpriced at $500, then at $600, and so on until it reached and passed $900.

Gold Investments Weekly Update - Strong Support Suggests Shallow Correction / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was due a much needed breather and a correction after the 10% increase in value in January. Considering the speed of gold's move up in recent weeks it is surprising that gold has only sold off by a small margin today ( by less than 2%). Compared to the sell off in equities in recent weeks gold's sell off has been orderly and less sharp.

Invest in Commodities, Don't Lose Your Capital in the Stocks Secular Bear Market / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial markets are always exhilarating. And as a student of the markets, I've learned over the years that their dynamics leave no room for boredom. Whether bull, bear, or monotonous grind in either direction, there is always something new and exciting going on.

Astute investors and speculators are able to make money no matter what direction the markets are moving. But for the average investor, it is usually live by the bull and die by the bear. And for those investors positioned to grow their capital in headline stock indices, in flat or down-trending markets there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.
