Gold on the Cusp of a Major Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough gold has remained in the doldrums since the last update, there is plenty of evidence that another strong uptrend is solely a question of when, not if. On the 1-year chart we can see that the reactive phase in force from mid-March is taking the form of 3-arc Fan Correction that is now believed to be quite close to completion. These fan patterns typically start out with a steep, panicky selloff as intermediate traders realize that the game of over for the time being and hit the exits. This is normally followed by a significant bounce and then by a more measured decline that frequently wreaks the most damage because it drags on for alot longer, although that was not the case here. Then, after another bounce renewed decline sets in, but this time there is little selling pressure behind it, and this downleg frequently terminates only a little below the 2nd drop and sometimes at or above it, which is a sign of strength.

Gold Long-term Rating Once more Turns Bullish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Gold was up every day this past week (and Friday of the previous) and still not really showing any great upside strength. Gold bugs always seem to think that up is the only direction but sometimes we get surprises. Are we in for one ahead?

GOLD : LONG TERM
With the continuous upside action there has been some changes to the long term indicators this past week. The price of gold has once more moved above its moving average line and the line remains in a positive slope.

SILVER and its Investment and Industrial Sides / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Morgan

What drives the price of silver? Certainly it is a function of buying and selling pressure, and primarily, this price setting mechanism takes place on the COMEX. However, so much has been written recently about short selling, price management, and naked sales, and on and on, that I wanted to take a more basic look at demand. Real demand and investment demand, regardless of how the price is set, fall into two main categories. We have investment demand (monetary demand), and we have industrial demand. In this year's World Silver Survey 2008, sponsored by the Silver Institute, under the Investment Chapter it states, “Investor activity was the main driver of the high and volatile silver price in 2007.”

Invsting in Sliver- SLV Silver ETF / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn April 28th, 2006 , Barclays launched the first silver exchange-traded fund in the US . Traded on the AMEX as SLV, the iShares Silver Trust was eagerly anticipated by silver investors ahead of its birth. It ushered in a new era where vast pools of stock-market capital gained an easy conduit into the physical silver market.

One of the reasons investors originally liked SLV so much is silver consumers aggressively lobbied the SEC to kill it. The Silver Users Association wrote some fascinating letters to the SEC bemoaning the birth of SLV as the end of cheap silver as we knew it. Established in 1947, the SUA is an organization of industrial users of silver in applications including photographic, electronic, silverware, jewelry, and other fabrication.

Gold BREAKOUT! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is breaking out on the upside today, after having been contained in a bullish pennant formation for the past 93 days. This 93 day period satisfies the time element, (referring to the average of the late spring – early summer pull-backs in gold), since the current bull market began, in 2001.

Virtually every year we witness a Christmas rally in gold, with the seasonal lows coming in the spring, following a correction towards the 200DMA.

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES ticked higher from an overnight lull early Friday, recording the highest Morning Fix in London since June 9th at precisely $900.00 per ounce.

Crude oil futures bounced more than 1% from Thursday's sudden $4 sell-off to $131 per barrel, while European stock markets dropped towards a three-month low, led by banking shares.

Metals Market Trend Analysis 2008 to 2009- Part 1 / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOftentimes I talk to investors, even sophisticated ones, and I realize that they treat metals as a group. Particularly in the subset of base metals, most point out the price action of copper and conclude that all base metals are in a raging bull with no signs of slowing down.

Close examination of correlation between various metal prices reveals a very different story, as we shall illustrate. (most charts here are from my friends at Kitco.com)

South African Gold Production Slumps by 10% Driving Gold Price Higher / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold closed at $891.30  in New York  yesterday and was  up $6.90  and silver closed at $17.31,  up 26  cents.  Since then g old has again traded in a range between $88 5 and $89 5 in Asia n and in  early European trading this morning .

Gold rose in early trading in Europe when oil prices rose on news that Anglo-Dutch oil giant Shell  had halted production at a major offshore oil facility in Nigeria because of a militant attack . It has since given back those early gains and dollar strength this morning seems to have led to a sell off in gold.

Gold Leaps to $905 as FBI Arrests Bear Stearns Hedge Fund Managers / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES leapt against all currencies at the US open on Thursday, surging to a four-week high above $905 per ounce on what looked to be one or more large New York orders amid an otherwise quiet market.

Crude oil bounced from an overnight dip as the US Dollar ticked gently lower on the forex market and energy-giant Shell closed 200,000 barrels of daily production in response to militant attacks in Nigeria .

Solar Sun Spot Cycles Impact on Crop Yields, Energy Use and Weather Patterns / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month we listened to Donald Coxe's weekly presentation to institutional investors. Coxe is the Chairman and Chief Strategist of Harris Investment Management. He has been a bull on the commodity markets for some time now and has correctly pointed out numerous investment opportunities in the energy, metals, and grain markets.

We were surprised when he mentioned the historical nature of the solar cycle and its' potential impact on global weather patterns and the agricultural sector. Most of the time Coxe he restricts himself to ‘worldly' indicators of supply and demand. Apparently an article on the subject recently appeared in Investor's Business Daily.

Gold Wedged Between Support and Resistance / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Very interesting situation developing in spot gold -- and by extension, the GLD (streetTRACKS Gold Shares). Let's notice that the price structure is wedge-in between the rising 200 DMA (support at $859), and the 50 & 21 DMAs (resistance) as well as the March-June resistance line all clustered around $900. My sense is that if gold hurdles and sustains above $900, gold prices could rocket towards $1000 again.

Energy Sector Strong Bullish Trends Due to Demand Growth Fundamentals / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

The price of crude oil hovered around $100 a barrel last month, while natural gas futures pushed toward $10 per thousand cubic feet. Both are impressive due to the fact we are in ‘shoulder season' – a time when moderating weather tends to weaken prices. Long term demand and supply trends remain powerfully bullish. Last month the following events occurred in the energy sector:

Gold Cheap on Oil Ratio Basis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold closed at $883.20  in New York  yesterday and was  up $13.30  and silver closed at $1 7.24 up 67 cents. Gold traded in a range between $880 and $890 in Asia n and in European trading this morning prior to selling off at the open on the NYMEX . 

With oil selling off and the dollar stronger versus the euro today, gold has come under pressure. But the inflation genie is well and truly out of the bottle and central banks internationally are in an extremely difficult situation. Unfortunately, present macroeconomic conditions look set to worsen (possibly considerably) in the coming months before they get better. Stagflation is increasing by the day and this will result in gold outperforming other asset classes in the coming months as it did in the 1970's.

New Socio-Economic Era Dawning Out of Credit and Fuel Crisis / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral weeks ago this analyst expressed the view that the US Equity markets were in the early stages of a Primary Bear Market and that investors should be more focused on capital preservation than on capital growth.

In hindsight, I continue to hold this view.  The core issue seems to be that banks (led by Citigroup), in moving to bring off-balance-sheet items back onto their balance sheets, will likely expose the weaknesses in those balance sheets in the process; and there will likely be a deterioration in their ability/willingness to lend. Additionally, for reasons set out in the body of this article, it seems that the US Fed's ability to create money “out of thin air” is also waning. On balance, it seems that a higher reliance will be placed on equity than on debt in the capital markets. Where will this equity come from?  Between them, the BRIC countries and OPEC may have up to $5.8 trillion to invest.

Global Economic Growth Drives Energy Sector Demand Upward / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the cost of crude oil has soared in recent years, the amount produced hasn't kept pace with demand. Worldwide oil production has barely budged, despite record prices. Since 2004 the price of oil has gone from $33 per barrel to $132 – meanwhile production has risen just 1.8 percent, to 84.6 million barrels per day.

Gold Longterm Trend Turns Bearish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThese $10 and $20 moves are quite frustrating, especially those on the down side, BUT if one looks closely on a chart there might be things that may be encouraging (or not). So, let's look at some charts.

GOLD: LONG TERM - What we have here is a long term point and figure chart of the gold price movement since 1987. The red lines are bear trend or resistance lines while the blue lines are bull trend or support lines. The thickest lines are primary lines while the thinner lines are secondary.
