Six Ways to Play Money Morning's Prediction That Gold is Headed to $1,500 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Martin_Hutchinson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in October - when gold was trading at only $770 an ounce - I told Money Morning readers that the "yellow metal" was looking like a very good bet. Since then, gold soared to more than $1,000 an ounce, creating quite a nice return for investors who acted on our prediction. Since achieving that peak, gold prices have declined a bit. In fact, just last week, gold prices dropped below the $900 mark, prompting gold bears to say that the great gold bull market has reversed itself.

Let me say right now: They're wrong.

Gold Finished With Corrective Rally? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Yesterday my work was telling me to await one more new recovery high into the 93.20/60 area prior to considering a short position in the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD). Naturally, prices have weakened this morning. However, I am NOT convinced that the recovery rally off of the 4/01 low at 86.05 is complete on the upside. I will stand aside for a while longer prior to committing $ to the short side of the GLD.

The Start of a Gold Bull Run / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Lee

The price of Rice doubled in the last 2 months raising fears of fresh outbreaks of social unrest across Asia, where the grain is a staple food for more than 2.5bn people (See article in FT.com here ).

This should come as no surprise since grains, energy, and just about every other commodity prices have risen a minimum of 50% in the last 6 months. And a strong physical demand and lax monetary policy will continue to fuel high commodity prices.

South African Power Cuts Affect Precious Metal Markets Production for Years / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

The South African government will give state-owned power utility, Eskom, R80 billion in funding it was announced in the annual budget on 20th February to help it boost electricity generation. Since then it is clear that Eskom will be able to access the needed total funding of well over R300 billion [$37.5 billion] to expand capacity. Since then Eskom has confirmed that it needs to see South Africans cut power demand by 10% for the next few years. At the moment the main city of South Africa is suffering power outages every second day for between 1 and 3 hours at a time. It has recommended too that expansion plans for the mines, smelters in the country, housing projects and new ventures be curtailed until Eskom can guarantee the needed electricity to operate them. It expects power cuts to continue until at least 2013. So that one, on the outside, can gain some perspective of the problem and how it will be handled in the future, it would be good to see just how such a SNAFU could have happened.

Where Is Gold Going? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Though many of you may find this hard to believe but I believe gold is preparing to take out new highs. Nothing has changed concerning the fundamentals and the Federal Reserve is not going to be successful in fixing the many problems at the moment. Oil will continue to stabilize and find its own price platform. The housing mess has not finished yet. There are still so many adjustable rate mortgages that have not been triggered as of yet.

Gold and Silver, Preparing for the Next Launch to Greater Heights / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNormally when a commodity rises in price, the supply increases, as producers put their product on the market to take advantage of the higher price. In the case of gold, we see the opposite to that trend. In the year 2000, just before the current bull market in gold began, the world's mines produced 2,573 tonnes. (Some sources quote 2,604 tonnes). In 2007, after gold increased in price from $260.00 to $900.00, the supply of new gold actually DECLINED by 129 tonnes, to 2,444 tonnes. South Africa , historically the world's largest supplier of gold, is now producing the lowest number of ounces in 84 years, and has been overtaken for first place by Red China. (Source www.goldsheetlinks.com ). Gold is scarce, and getting scarcer!

Gold Correction Presents Opportunity for Investors to Accumulate Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo sets of forces work on market prices. Internal factors, or market's technical conditions, can in some periods dominate all others. Second set of forces are fundamental factors. Latter is that which is happening in world that might influence market. The much enjoyed rally from last summer's lows to the joyous move above US$1,000 was driven by latter. Investors wanted to protect their purchasing power from collapse of purveyors of paper assets.
