HUI Gold Bugs Stock Index Big Daily Moves Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor precious-metals stock traders, weathering outsized volatility is a fact of life. Yet again over the last few weeks this truth was really driven home. The flagship HUI gold-stock index experienced some neck-snapping swings. And this generated much angst for those not yet steeled against such extreme volatility.

While long-term investors shouldn't care one bit, big swings can be very perilous for speculators. These big daily moves tend to generate intense levels of greed or fear. And these emotions are the mortal enemies of all speculators, the primary challenge that must be overcome if one is to succeed in trading.

Gold Prices Wrong-Footed as US Payrolls Sink / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES dipped, bounced and then fell back again from a four-day high early Friday on news that US job losses exceeded expectations last month.

Non-Farm Payrolls for March showed a loss of 80,000 jobs vs. Wall Street forecasts of 50,000 cuts. Even the ever-bearish Briefing.com had penciled in only a 70,000 fall.

Buy Gold and Silver Stocks With Both Hands and Feet / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe sudden about-face last night to become bullish on gold and silver stocks again requires some explanation. We have been aware for some considerable time that Precious Metals stocks have been woefully underperforming gold and silver, a point made clear by Mr Bob Moriarty of www.321gold.com in his recent article Buy with both hands , but were not minded to go long because our research indicated that another heavy decline in gold and silver was imminent, which is what we have just seen.

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we watch the credit crunch wend its toxic way across the developed world, we are seeing defensive action by some nations to lower its dependence on the U.S.A. so as to duck the recession that is now hitting there. The future of the U.S. in global trade has been damaged, with its currency's weakness providing some defense for the nation.

Gold Dips Below $900 as Paulson (Almost) Admits US Recession / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD gave back an overnight rally to $905 per ounce early in London on Thursday, slipping $10 per ounce as the US open drew near.

Government debt prices ticked higher, pushing US bond yields further below the rate of inflation, as Asian stock markets closed higher but Wall Street futures pointed lower after US Treasury secretary Hank Paulson finally admitted that "we need to have this correction."

Gold Works Off Oversold Condition Ahead of Next Downleg / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The strength off of yesterday's low at 86.05 to 88.40 in the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) represents a recovery bounce within an incomplete downside correction that projects into the 83.00 target zone prior to completion. The only question for me is whether or not "the bounce" continues higher to 90.00 prior to the next rollover. My intraday work is telling me that at the very least, the GLD needs more time to work off the near-term oversold condition ahead of the next downleg. I will remain on the sidelines for now.

A $1 million Wager for Gold Bears / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Gold bullion is under water at the moment with the price having dived sharply over the past two weeks. This move has triggered a myriad opinions ranging from the end of gold's 7-year bull market to a mere healthy correction in an ongoing uptrend. But few pundits have as strong a conviction as Jim Sinclair who is putting his money where his mouth is – $1 million smackaroos, to be exact, that the gold price will trade at US$1,650 before the second week of January 2011. Any takers? (Let's hope this is not Jim's version of an April Fool's hoax!)

Soaring Rice Prices Cause for Developing World Food Riots / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Rice is an all important staple food in much of the world. In the past year, the price of rice has rocketed from under $11 to more than $19, and even above $20 in overnight electronic trading. These prices are now the cause of food riots around the world. In recent times they occurred in Guinea, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Senegal, Uzbekistan and Yemen (NY Times,29 Mar 2008) . In the Philippines, the government is worried about hoarding as that nation imports almost twenty percent of its rice consumption. Restrictions on global supplies are slowly developing.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE of physical gold bullion sank to a two-month low of $889 at the start of London trade on Tuesday, taking the last fortnight's losses to more than 14% before recovering to $897 per ounce.

Gold and a Newer Generation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Well, now that gold has surpassed 1,000 an ounce it should be preparing for its dramatic descent. The fact is that the common man has been brainwashed for 20 years that gold is bad and evil. Now that it is over 900 he knows by all his learning that gold should soon drop through the floor. Small investors all around the country are selling their physical gold for paper dollars.

Silver, Gold and JFK the Last American Hero / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis Articlehero, def. a man distinguished by exceptional courage and nobility and strength - wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

Like everything in our past, the late American president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, exists as a memory. Struck down by an assassin in a decade where bullets—democracy's deadly equalizer—quieted those brave enough to champion change, e.g. JFK, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was a true American hero; and heroes, while a champion to many are, by definition, a threat to some.

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe week started okay but ended on a sour note. It's not the time to panic yet but not the time to plunge in either. One should have well placed stops, relax and watch the action in comfort. Let others tear their hair out worrying what will happen next.

Why Food Prices will go through the Roof in coming Months / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA deadly fungus, known as Ug99, which kills wheat, has likely spread to Pakistan from Africa according to reports. If true, that threatens the vital Asian Bread Basket including the Pu nj ab region. The spread of the deadly virus, stem rust, against which an effective fungicide does not exist, comes as world grain stocks reach the lowest in four decades and government subsidized bio-ethanol production, especially in the USA, Brazil and EU are taking land out of food production at alarming rates. The deadly fungus is being used by Monsanto and the US Government to spread patented GMO seeds.

Gold and Silver Remain Overbought / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“Notice two important indicators may be showing short term support ahead in gold. Silver may be putting in an internal fourth wave.” ~ Precious Points: What Goes Up…, March 22, 2008

If last week's update said gold could go to $800 and silver to $15 without technically damaging their bull markets, then some might assume the positive price action last week in precious metals must be super-bullish and that it's time to pile back in. But that's clearly not the case, as shown in the weekly gold chart below.
