Gold Short-term Giving Worrying Technical Signals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite some volatile daily moves, on a chart this past week it looked like a sideways trend, even possibly a topping action. Let's see.

GOLD : LONG TERM
Taking away most of the trend, support and resistance lines from the P&F chart and leaving only a few primary lines gives an interesting view of the bull market since 2001. With the present units and reversals used in the chart the original primary up trend line, if extended, shows the action of the past several months just hugging the line, slightly above at times and slightly below at other times.

What Will Take Gold Through the $1,000 Barrier? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis Articleeuro dollar symbolGold and silver prices are making new ground every day and are consolidating, seemingly in preparation for an attack on $1,000. Thereafter, who will buy gold and pay over $1,000? It seems a daunting price for any new Investor or even one with a sizeable holding already.

A Psychological Barrier
Why is $1,000 such a barrier? The move to four figures implies it is in a new league, in top gear and can't hold that level. If one looks at the gold price in the € the picture changes. In those, now distant days, when the € was worth $1.25, the € price of gold battled heavily to get past €530; it now sits at €640. It seems that a 20% rise is not so outrageous as we thought. Look at gold in the Australian $ or the Japanese Yen. There hasn't been any where near such a rise as we have seen in the US$ price of gold?

Natural Gas Pushing Highs / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough my next optimal near-term target zone in the U.S. Natural Gas Fund ETF (AMEX: UNG) is 49.50-50.00, the larger pattern is so bullish and has so much upside potential that I will not be surprised to see the price structure accelerate to the upside in a vertical assault on the 56.00 to 58.00 measured intermediate-term target zone. Frankly, I am eyeballing 50.00 as a viable exit area for my current long (model portfolio) position, but if and when we approach the nearest-term target, I will assess the two-way risks of NOT taking profits sooner rather than later. In the meantime, as we speak the UNG is pushing up against yesterday's high at 48.12, which should be hurdled and should trigger the upmove to 50.00.

Bernanke's Stagflationary Gold Show Must Go On? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke has attacked the threat of deflation with great zeal. We knew that he would. But what we don't know is how Mr. Bernanke will respond to today's stagflationary pressures, if at all, and/or whether or not the slumping dollar will eventually ignite a monetary policy response.  Yes, Mr. Bernanke has assured policy makers and investors that fighting recession is higher on the Fed's check list than directly attacking inflation.  However, if USD creation is the primary cause of the inflationary problem now rupturing through out the global economy Bernanke may have little choice but to eventually switch focus.

Gold Continues on its Exciting Climb Higher! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Even the threatened IMF gold sells have failed to slow gold's momentum. Winter continues beating down on us providing colder and colder days here in the south. The mountains receive the snow but the Piedmont remains clear.

Well the last of the democratic nominations are winding up. How will gold be affected regardless of who enters the White House? Who ever enters the house on the hill will have no strategy except to continue the present course which is unabated money creation which in turn leads to greater inflation.

Uranium Stocks Rally Comes to an End as Downtrend Reasserts Itself / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

That nibble, nibble just turned into a big bite. It looks like the rally has come to an end with the direction of least resistance being once more to the down side. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index closed lower today by 0.084 points or 2.36%. There were 8 winners and a whopping 36 losers. I was hoping against hope we would be getting these figures but in the reverse order. 6 stocks closed unchanged on the day. As for the majors, they all closed lower. Cameco lost 0.9%, Denison lost 4.1%, First Uranium lost 1.0%, Paladin lost 0.9% and Uranium One lost 2.6%. The best performer of the few that closed on the up side was Bayswater Uranium with a gain of 5.2%. The worst performer was Uracan Resources with a loss of 15.7%.

Gold Bugs: Who's Crazy Now? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

March 2nd update for members - “Though it seems a stall in the rally may be ahead if the Fed continues to jawbone the issue of inflation, I am compelled to revise my charts in a decidedly bullish fashion.” ~Precious Points: The Bubble Inside the Bubble, February 23, 2008

There was a time, not all that long ago, when being a “gold bug” carried the stigma of being a bit on the fringe, when accumulating physical metal was deemed akin to building and stocking an underground bunker complete with canned beans and tinfoil hats.

Natural Gas Unseasonal Price Rise. Why is it Rising? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSomething is happening to natural gas that should occur at this time of the year; it is rising. This commodity normally starts to strengthen early in the 4th quarter or, to a lesser degree, advance during the summer months. But rallying in between these higher demand periods is certainly unique, and more importantly, breaking through the solid price resistance level of $9.00 is very unexpected. So, what is driving this natural source higher?

Egg Prices Hit New Highs as China and India Change Agri-Foods Dynamics / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Easter Bunny may have serious trouble making deliveries this month. Changing fundamentals in the Agri-Food sector have pushed the price of eggs up dramatically. Easter Bunny might not be able to afford as many eggs this year. This week's graph is of cash price of a dozen eggs. While headlines may be filled with dramatic price move in wheat, eggs have been doing quite nicely. After touching about $0.63 per dozen earlier this year, that price moved to almost $1.49 six months later.

In our 10 am posting to subscribers yesterday we discussed the powerful up-gap opening in the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) and the fact that the GLD had hurdled the resistance line of its multi-month bullish price channel. We wrote: "This is very interesting action in the GLD -- to see if the up-gap up here can be preserved…[and] to see if the GLD can hold above its upper channel line (96.67) because usually a thrust above the upper channel concludes the underlying upleg."

Gold Long-term Elliott Wave Count Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have spent at least 15 hours trying to find symbols for gold on my data feed to no avail. I might have found one way to get it, but the cost for one single quote is not justifiable. As such, I subscribed to Stockcharts to obtain charts. They do not offer data far back enough to produce long-term charts, so what you see is what you get.
