Commodities Bull Market Super Cycle is Dead? / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Those who had been riding the upward wave decide now is the time to get out. Those who thought the rally would last forever, find their illusion destroyed abruptly, and they, also, respond to the newly revealed reality, by selling or trying to sell. And thus the rule, supported by the experience of centuries, - the speculative episode always ends not with a whimper, but with a bang,” so wrote John Kenneth Galbraith in his book “A Short History of Financial Euphoria.”

Gold Mining Stocks Investing Lesson From History / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: I was in Colorado recently, and all around me were reminders that I was in a state with a rich history of minerals — natural gas, silver, and especially gold.

The Colorado Gold Rush, better known as the "Pikes Peak Gold Rush," is America's most profitable afterthought. Miners who had rushed across the continent in the 1849 California Gold Rush backtracked a decade later to Colorado, to chase down elusive rumors of gold.

Technical Reasons to Buy Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Zihlmann

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1980 to 2008: From bear to bull: the multi-year trends and the long-term picture.

The chart below clearly shows one thing: long-term trends often last many years . The bear market that started in 1988 ended in 1993. The up-swing that followed lasted three years from 1993 until 1996 and culminated in what may be called a false break-out. Then another bear-market unfolded taking the gold price down to $ 250 over a period of almost four years.

Gold Strengthens on Rising Russian Geopolitical Risk / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York  yesterday at $ 810.30,  down 50 cents  and silver was  down  10 cents to $1 3. 03 .  G old and silver  then r alli ed in Asian trading  and early European trading . Gold is trading at $ 821.30/ 821 70 per ounce (1 0 45 GMT).

Gold is finding favour again with the dollar having weakened again (as low as 1.4829 to the Euro) and oil prices rising (London Brent Spot has surged 3.45% to over $113). Also risk aversion is rising again due to increasing financial (Fannie, Freddie and Lehman), macroeconomic (stagflation) and geopolitical risk (Russia- Nato) which has resulted in weakness in international equity markets.

Commodities Extremely Oversold / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFaced with slowing global growth, macro investors began dumping commodities and commodity-related stocks, with small- and mid-cap stocks hurt the most. This commodities sell-off, which began in July and has continued into August, also corresponds to the long-term seasonal cycle in which prices for many commodities tend to bottom out in late summer before rebounding in the fall.

Gold Bounces from Oversold Levels on Global Stagflation Warnings / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York  yesterday at $ 810.80,  up $ 10.30 and silver was  down 8 cents to $13.11 .  Both  gold and silver  remained firm in Asian trading but have  given up some of the gains  in early European trading . Gold i s trading at $ 807.30/ 807.7 0 per ounce (1045 GMT).

Gold rebound ing from oversold levels , rose for the second time  yesterday  and there was an outside day reversal to the upside which is technically bullish (the market made a new low during the trading session, but closed higher than the previous day's high). This is a short term bullish indicator and often happens near market bottoms and could mean a trend reversal is developing.

Commodities & Gold Stocks: Decennial Pattern Comparison with Nasdaq / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn early April I wrote a commentary titled “ Commodity Boom? You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet! ” in which I hypothesized that commodities would maintain investment leadership through the end of the decade and the rally would end in spectacular fashion in early 2010. This would be consistent with a “decennial pattern” of leadership which began in the 1970s with each decade's winner roughly doubling the stupendous gains of the prior decade's winner.

Commodities Asset Classes: Energy, Minerals and Agri-Foods / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Ever since paper oil prices broke, journalists around the world have been brutally attacking keyboards in a rush to declare the end to investing in commodities. Business media anchors keep asking the same question, “Are commodities done?” While teaching a journalist is the equivalent of attempting to train a cat, we continue to remind all of one simple message. Commodities is not a homogeneous asset class. It is comprised of three distinct groups, as listed below.

Gold Mining Stocks GDX ETF Decline Incomplete / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Despite the 40% decline in the Market Vectors Gold Mining ETF (AMEX: GDX) since March, the gold miners ETF does not exhibit the pattern of completion and likely still will hit one or both of my optimal lower targets derived off of the massive top formation we see on the enclosed daily chart. Let's expect a bounce from the vicinity of 33.50, but thereafter another loop to lower lows into the 30.00-28.00 area to complete the Jul-Aug (Sept?) decline.

Technical Analysis of US Dollar and AMEX Gold BUGS Index / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: David_Petch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis editorial focuses primarily on the US Dollar Index, with respect to how recent market actions have affected the present consolidation pattern underway since March 2008. The very last chart focuses on the HUI and how the sharp decline nullified the long-term count I was following due to the 0-II trend line being broken. One thing I have learned over the years is that fundamental analysis must be married to technical analysis. It is wrong for someone to assume that Elliott Wave patterns are “the be all end all”…they are a technical tool used to predict future market action based upon the surrounding wave structure. Glenn Neely's pattern base is extremely complicated, which makes tracking patterns even that more difficult.

Don't Believe the Gold and Silver "Bubble" Burst Hype! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York  yesterday at $ 800.50,  up $14.50 and silver was  up 33 cents to $13.19 .  Both  gold and silver have again fallen  in  European trading . Gold i s trading at $ 7 86 .00/7 86 .40 per ounce (10.30GMT).

Gold rebounded from very oversold levels yesterday but market weakness has resumed overnight in Asia  and early in London as the dollar has continued to rally (reaching a 6 month high at 1.4631 to the euro) .  Speculative interest in the precious metals has fallen dramatically as seen in the recent CFTC data and this usually presages a rally in the precious metals.

Global Energy Sector Investing / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: Although consumers and businesses have gotten a bit of a reprieve at the gas pump as of late, the escalation in oil prices we've seen over the past year has led to some major changes in overall consumer behavior. Many car-owners have dumped their gas-guzzling pickup trucks and SUVs at the nearest used-car lot and used the proceeds to buy some gas-sipping rides. Companies with large distribution networks have redesigned their shipping schedules, crafting more efficient routes that accommodated larger truckloads.
