Gold and the $8.3 Trillion & Journey to OZ! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, it has finally happened. USA Today has raised the cost of their daily paper to one dollar. Knew the day was coming. The mining industry continues to suffer along with the rest of the stock market. Definitely a contrarian market now. The availability of credit is now zero and blessed be those companies who have previously stock piled huge wads of cash. They will have the best chance of surviving this market.

Gold Backwardation That Shook The World / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Friday, December 12, backwardation on gold was still in force at an annualized discount rate hovering around 2% in the December contract, and 0.3% in February contract. Many readers have asked me how it is that so many other observers fail to see the backwardation. The discrepancy is due to differences in methodology. Most analysts calculate the basis as the difference between February and December futures prices which gives them a positive reading. They use the December futures price as proxy for the spot price. This is clearly wrong. The December futures price is not the same as the spot price, even though we are in December.

Junior Mining Stocks: Canada’s Subprime Market Crash / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePrior to the recent market meltdown, the market for junior mining companies had already been experiencing a severe correction since its peak in early 2007. Despite rising and historically high metal prices, money began leaving the market, in earnest, in the summer of 2007. By late last year, the correction had become a full-fledged bear market. Then the credit markets collapsed in September 2008. This caused another leg down which also included the major mining companies and the underlying commodities.

Playing U.S. Dollar Weakness and Silver Strength / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe seven-week sideways coil pattern in the daily chart of the Euro/$ resolved itself to the upside earlier this week. The ability of the Euro/$ to hold Thursday's gains amidst acute overnight weakness in equities is a very powerful sign of relative strength, and likely that the Euro has further to climb against the USD -- at least to the 1.3600-1.3700 area next. This action should be supportive for gold and silver as well.

Investments Diversification Remains Key to Weathering the Economic Storm / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the economic slowdown and the consequent fall in jewellery sales, jewellers have recently begun touting the merits of jewellery and diamonds as being “investments”. Gold, silver, platinum or palladium rings, bracelets, necklaces and diamonds or other gemstones should not be sold as an investment and it is irresponsible to sell them as such.

The TROUBLE with GOLD...? If you choose to use it as money, then you can only abandon it once. Once done, it's done forever. You can't keep floating the value of cash time and again.

U.S. Oil Funds Bullish Structure Quashed / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the upmove off of Wednesday's upside pivot reversal (34.07) into Thursday's high (39.82) to be considered bullish, I needed to see the US Oil Fund ETF (NYSE: USO) weakness hold at or above 38.00, which was the case yesterday afternoon. However, this morning's gap down open and plunge beneath 35.78 has quashed the potentially bullish pattern structure into something considerably less constructive -- and possibly has initiated a new downleg within the still dominant bear trend.

More on Gold Backwardation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: James_Turk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last few weeks, there have been a lot of articles on the Internet about backwardation, i.e., when the price of commodities for delivery today is higher than the price of commodities for delivery in the future. Like nearly all the things on the Internet, most of what was written is useful, but some of it is total rubbish, and it takes time to sort through to find the gems from the rest. I offer the following in the hope that it clears up some of the confusion that has arisen about backwardation as well as to provide some insight into today's gold market.

An Overview of Gold and the Banking System / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe $ has started to tumble and the gold price has positively turned. Meanwhile investors are not staring into the abyss quite as much. With interest rates tumbling across the globe, the world's central bankers are acting in concert, clearly in hopes that foreign exchange rates will steady. At the same time, the global economy and the nations that make it up are all stimulating their economies.

Gold Rises as Central Bankers Choose Inflation Solution / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF WHOLESALE GOLD held inside a tight $10 range early in London on Friday, nearing the week-end almost 8% above last week's close for US investors.

World stock markets sank, meantime, losing 5.5% in Tokyo and dropping 5% in Paris, after the US Senate killed a $14 billion bail-out of America's "Big Three" auto-makers.

Silver, But No Silver Lining / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Robert_Singer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe end of our consumer society is on the horizon, which should be no surprise to anyone who took Economics 101. Do we really expect to spend our way out of this mess by buying and selling each other useless cheap stuff from China ?

As the financial collapse gathers steam, gold and silver oracles like Butler , Friedman, Morgan and Turk who have been predicting for years the launch of the price of silver to the moon will see their prophecy fulfilled, but a celebration is not in order.

Gold rallied sharply yesterday, for the third day in a row, on higher oil prices and a weakening dollar. Risk aversion remains the prevailing force in markets as seen in collapsing Treasury yields and shortages of physical bullion and backwardation in the gold market.

Gold Backwardation Resulting Gold Fever / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere is an update on the backwardation in gold that started on December 2 at an annualized discount rate of 1.98% and 0.14% to spot in the December and February contracts. It continued and worsened on December 8, 9, and 10 as shown by the corresponding rates widening to 3.5% and 0.65%. It is nothing short of awesome. This is a premonition of a coming gold fever of unprecedented dimensions that will overwhelm the world as soon as its significance is fully digested by the doubting Thomases.

Gold Soars in Sterling as Bank of England Hits Panic Button / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

"...For UK investors choosing to Buy Gold in 2008, the metal discharged itself without a word of complaint..."

WITH THE BANK OF ENGLAND hitting the panic button, slashing the returns-paid-to-UK-savers down to three-century lows at the start of December, the clear winners from its campaign to reboot the bubble so far have been gold investors stuck with Pounds to earn and Pounds to spend.
