Gold Push to New Highs Lacks Strength / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price of gold continues into new highs BUT the strength of such recent move keeps getting weaker. Either the strength needs to improve soon or the weakness may dominate.

GOLD : LONG TERM
I thought it was time to check in again on the long term P&F Chart. Since we last looked in on it we have gone though a consolidation period and have broken into new highs. Most important, the action has now given us a higher value as a major support which, if breached, may give us a bear market reversal signal.

Gold's Hypnotic $1000 Price Target and the Outlook for Precious Metal Shares / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a lot of fear circulating around the Internet concerning gold/silver and the gold/silver stocks. As contrarians, that's exactly what we like to see. It lets us know the prevailing trend (up) is still intact and that higher prices are likely to be seen before the next interim top is in.

The fear in the PM stocks among the “dumb money” trading public almost perfectly mirrors the optimism shown by the “smart money” traders who have recently been buying the PM stocks with both hands in anticipation of another leg up in the momentum market for the gold stocks. Take for instance the latest readings in the CBOE Gold Index put/call open interest.

Energy Sector Peak Oil Trends Paint “A Very Alarming Picture” / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile energy demand may be tempered by a slowdown in global economic growth, longer term growing energy demands and supply constraints will continue to present incredible challenges. Much more capital will need to be allocated to the sector to address supply issues, which should create opportunities for investors. We noted the following developments in the energy sector last month:

Could Gold Mimic Platinum's Parabolic Move? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My technical work is telling me (and has been telling me) that gold prices (the GLD) is on borrowed time on the upside, and that they will implode IF in fact the global slowdown story has any merit. Then again, growing perceptions of stagflation could last a while longer, until the commodity sector rolls over amidst evidence of a global economic contraction.

HUI Gold Stocks Index Up-Legs Structure Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite very difficult prevailing stock-market conditions, the HUI unhedged gold-stock index has soared 55% since mid-August! You'd think gold-stock traders would be thrilled with such awesome gains. Instead they are very disappointed, because gold itself is up 45% over this same period of time and the HUI hasn't adequately leveraged its gains.

To delve into this vexing conundrum, a couple weeks ago I updated my research on HUI leverage to gold . It showed that leverage varies wildly over the course of uplegs, so it is pointless to worry about mid-upleg. Like the weather, it will soon change. As I was doing this leverage research, some fascinating peripheral insights into the technical structure of HUI uplegs became apparent.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal inventories of grains are nearing historic lows, while twenty percent of the U.S. corn crop this coming year will be used for ethanol production. Meanwhile wheat, rice and soybean prices have reached all-time highs and corn prices have jumped to a 12-year high.

Demand for grain continues to increase adding upward pressure on the price of agricultural products. We expect this trend to continue. Recent developments in the sector, found in various publications, include:

Access to Water of Paramount Importance for Mining Operations / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCareful about Moving to Nevada - I have one thread that basically sums up the title for the introduction so please read before continuing further into the article: http://www.physorg.com/news122050436.html . Access to water is essential for mining and nuclear power plants and if Lake Mead continues to decline in volume, the Hoover dam will become a modern day Pyramid…a derelict of the past that had a purpose only to be viewed as a monument of the technical savvy of those that went before them. This event could affect millions of people, so as an aside, avoid purchasing real estate in Vegas because it likely is entering a long-term bear market.

Gold Surges to New Highs as Crude Oil Breaks Above $100 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

THE PRICE OF PHYSICAL GOLD BULLION gained almost 1% at the London opening on Thursday, taking the metal 3.6% higher from yesterday's low to a new record high above $948 per ounce.

"The second successive [ US crude oil] close above $100 a barrel and a higher-than-expected US inflation outcome were the triggers for a move to a new all-time high," believes John Reade at UBS.

Uranium Stocks Await Breakout From Consolidation Area / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

The Index close was on the up side again but almost everything else was telling me the market was more down than up. The potential topping activity is still evident on the chart. Although the close was on the plus side the daily high and daily low were both lower than yesterday's values. Although I have drawn a resistance line from the top of the mid-Jan activity maybe the early Feb highs are really the resistance, at least they are so far.

US $2 Trillion Bailout- Monetary Inflation to Send Gold Soaring / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike a whirlwind, the crisis triggered by the housing crisis and mortgage debacle has extended to almost every phase of the landscape in US economic and financial life. And the rookies running the US Federal Reserve initially said the problem would be contained. My claim made in late June 2007 (see article, click here ) was that it involved absolute contagion to the system, which is what we see vividly now. Let's review some high level stresses in several arenas, examine the response potentials, and check on the gold and US Dollar impact. One should note, the gold & silver prices will soon demonstrate strong independence from the US Dollar Just like in 2005, gold can rise even with some bounce in the buck. Unlike 2005 though, the buck is likely not to make much in the way of advances.

Uranium Stocks Hit Bottom - Time to Buy? / Commodities / Uranium

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past six months Uranium stocks had fallen completely off the radar. It had been months since I last wrote about them in my newsletter. Such can occur when a major peak develops and devastating declines ensue. The combination of the subprime mortgage meltdown and ensuing credit crisis combined with a rapid 40% decline in the spot uranium price inflicted collateral damage on the entire sector. Only a few stocks were able to avoid more than a 50% decline. However, over the past few weeks selling pressure has finally abated and given way to classic bottoming patterns in many of the uranium stocks. Last week's action was especially encouraging as many stocks rebounded on rising volume from successfully tested bottom points.
