Gold the Dumb Metal Beats Overqualified Ex-hedge fund Financial Hacks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Well, God knows you don't need any brains to buck barley bags..."– John Steinbeck, Of Mice & Men (1937)

ALPHA used to be what hedge-fund managers promised their clients. Better still, portable alpha – defined in the easy bed-time reading of finance MBAs as the "generation of excess return over a benchmark while maintaining the desired asset allocation to traditional market exposures" – offered to meet and beat whatever returns everyone else was making, thus proving the manager's genius and justifying his infamous fees.

Why Gold Will Rise During Deflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat deflation really does to an economy - Deflation is a particularly pernicious economic condition. It is far worse than inflation. Prices decline in deflation. The impact of this is that a person with cash sees the buying power of that cash increase, whereas the owner of assets with declining values sees the cash value of those assets decline. This is the superficial picture.

Silver in Crisis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe unprecedented financial turmoil plaguing all markets these days is dominating everyone's attention. In a troubled time when the flagship S&P 500 stock index can plunge 30.0% in a single month, it is hard to think about anything else. Thus many smaller markets, like silver, are languishing in relative obscurity.

Silver, an asset which many investors thought would thrive during a financial-market panic, has been scourged mercilessly. After briefly surging above $20 in March, it nonchalantly traded between $16 and $19 or so for the next 5 months. Silver was on top of the world, consolidating high, and all looked well.

Why Gold Price Has Fallen Despite Record Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Caggeso writes: Having spawned the worst market for stocks since the Great Depression, the global financial crisis is forcing investors to re-examine a number of long-held beliefs. Gold bugs, for instance, have been left to wonder just how gold prices could backpedal in the face of all-time-record demand.

Gold demand did increase – in fact, by a record 45% from the second quarter to the third.

Silvers Brutal Downtrend Has Run its Course? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven though the brutal downtrend in silver that has slashed its price by about 60% from last July remains in force, there are several important signs that it has probably run its course, and that silver is now basing ahead of renewed advance. On the 6-month chart we can see that even though silver plumbed new lows late in October by a sizeable margin, the MACD indicator bottomed way above its August and September lows, showing that downside momentum was decelerating, and it continued to decelerate with the low last week, when the MACD indicator hardly dropped. The behaviour of this indicator relative to price in the recent past is typical of a bottom.

Gold Builds Support as the U.S. Dollar Hits Resistance / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has remained in a narrowing trading range since the last update late in October, which is looking increasingly like an intermediate base area that will lead to a significant advance. In the last update a relief rally was predicted on the basis that the preceding steep downtrend had exhausted itself, and this is what we saw, although it didn't get very far. About a week ago gold looked like it may be forming a Pennant, implying a drop to new lows, but the lack of follow through on last week's decline and subsequent partial recovery has resulted in the pattern opening out into a Triangle, which is increasing the chances of an upside breakout.

Gold and Silver Obvious Price Maniupulation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Richard_J_Greene

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmazingly, while gold and other commodity related stocks continued to be sold off to levels that are at deep discounts to their intrinsic value in October, gold continued to break to new all time highs in most major currencies. On October 9th and 10th gold recorded new all time highs in many currencies including the Euro, the Australian Dollar, British Sterling, the Indian Rupee, the Russian Ruble, the South African Rand and many others. The Dow Jones Industrial Average Stock also recorded a multi decade low in terms of gold. Investors are getting a very much skewed view of gold's performance if they are viewing it in terms of the US Dollar or Yen. These are the two main currencies that have been used as cheap funding sources allowing speculators to take on incredible degrees of leverage to invest in higher yielding assets with much better fundamentals.

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCentral banks around the world are indeed doing everything but dumping money out of helicopters. That inflationary rush has been led by Federal Reserve. Ignoring the fact that easy money has been a failed policy twice in recent years, to wit the technology stock bubble and the housing bubble, FOMC is pursuing most inflationary policy in that organization's dismal 95-year history.
