Gold Range Trades Pending Bull Market Resumption / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was flat in New York yesterday despite the increasingly bullish macro environment. Gold closed at $803.40 down $1.20 and silver closed at $12.92 down 12 cents.

Gold rose in early trading in London but has subsequently given up some of the gains as the dollar has rallied again (1.4456 to the EUR).

Systemic Distrust and GATA Gold Conspiracy Hype / Commodities / Market Manipulation

The Real Big Storm About to Hit the United States is Cantarell / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Broderick writes: The oil industry along the Louisiana coast got off lightly from Hurricane Gustav. While 1.3 million barrels of oil and seven billion cubic feet of natural gas per day stopped pumping temporarily, most of the oil infrastructure escaped harm. And oil prices plummeted on that good news.

However, there's a much worse problem threatening oil production around the Gulf of Mexico ...

Gold Stocks Developing a Double Bottom Pattern / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTumultuous market conditions have taken their toll on the commodity sector and caused a change in the Elliott Wave count of the HUI as mentioned in the prior Internet update. The main crux of the problem has been leveraged individuals and funds that were forced to liquidate positions, thereby triggering stops all the way down causing increased liquidation. It is probably a safe bet that a significant portion of the tax-loss selling for 2008 has already occurred, but as analysis presented below suggests, trading opportunities exist over the next 4-6 months before the HUI completes the present consolidation pattern. I stress that 4-6 months is the minimum time frame for the HUI correction to complete, but it could easily extend until May-July 2009 (depending upon how long the consolidation pattern in the USD takes as mentioned in the last Internet update).

Cooling Global Economy Ensures Commodity Correction to Continue / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent rise of the U.S. dollar has triggered the peak in the commodity market and likely halted any further advances for this index during the 2006-2010 market cycle. As energy and precious metals are normally the last sectors to crest during a market cycle, their current weakness signals the start of a broader correction.

Gold Undergoing New Bearish Consolidation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe near-term pattern and technical set-up earlier this morning in spot gold -- which corresponds to the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) for ETF traders -- pointed to an upside thrust to test key near-term resistance at $810.65 concurrent with a test of key near-term euro/$ resistance at 1.4450/80. While the euro did rally a touch above 1.4480, the rally did not sustain, which helped to thwart the rally attempt in spot gold, which failed to claw its way above $810.00.

China and India Demand to Fuel Agri-Foods Bull Market / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

If one listens to the popular business media, commodities are dead. When paper oil was trading at $147, the sky was the limit. Now, all is going down. Perhaps they are little more than trend followers? What we really need to know is if the world is awash in grains. Truth is, that view does not in any way describe the global situation. The world has entered an era, ten years or more remaining, when Agri-Food will be in short supply. Whether China grows at 11+% or 9% does not change the conclusion.

Strong US Dollar Blasts Gold to Below $800 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE of physical gold sank below yesterday's two-week low early in London on Wednesday, dropping to $790 before bouncing to $801 an ounce as Western stock markets fell sharply.

US Treasuries rose, pushing real yields after inflation almost 2% into the red on the 10-year bond, while the Euro slipped below $1.44 on the currency markets – a fresh six-month low.

Gold Slide Continues Despite Soaring Inflation and Unprecedented Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold fell in early trading in London on further falls in oil prices ($108.24 a barrel - Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - OCT08) and on the continuing rally in the dollar (reached 1.4386 to the Euro) but gold has recovered some of its early losses.

Concerns regarding the outlook for corporate profits internationally and for the health of the global economy is weighing on stock markets and should lead to safe haven demand for gold as it did in the first year of the credit crisis.

China Demand WIll Continue to Drive Commodities Bull Market / Commodities / Resources Investing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTony Sagami writes: When I am in Asia, I'll talk to anyone I think can help me find the next home run stock. I have often learned a great deal by talking to bellmen, taxi drivers, sales clerks, or the lone diner at the table next to me. And some of the most useful information I've ever gathered comes when (and where) I least expect it.

The latest example of this came during my recent trip to Beijing, where I spent a Sunday walking the Mutinayu section of the Great Wall of China.

Gold Used as Political Weapon Could See Bounce Back above $900 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Gold is a political metal, where to this day its primary movements are still governed more by politics than any other factor taken in the proper light. You see it's all about the dollar ($), and it's role as global hegemony, where post World War II its imposition as the world's reserve currency was in effect de facto / soft colonialism and economic domination. So, gold's rise since 2001 is actually the measure of global de-colonization in effect, with recent actions taken by Russia in Georgia an acceleration of the trend. That's right, and while Russia may not have the ‘superpower' status it was credited with up until the Union's fall, which accelerated with the dismantling of the Berlin Wall in 1989, it has been re-organized under Putin into a regional power of strategic (perhaps supreme with its energy related stranglehold on the rest of Europe) importance, both economically and militarily once again.

Gold Follows Crudes Slide Lower / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

In light Labour Day trading gold fell yesterday as Hurricane Gustav did not impact the Gulf of Mexico as severely as had been expected.

Gold has continued to fall in trading in London as oil prices have continued their recent slide and are down nearly 5% to near $105 a barrel (Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - OCT08) and the dollar has risen to a 7 month high against the euro (below $1.45) and the US dollar index has risen to a 10 month high.

Gold Targetting ABC Trend to $900 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“In Elliott wave terms, last week's rally could very well have been a 4 of C consolidation before the final lows. Both gold and silver failed to take out a key support/resistance level just above Friday's closing levels. Neither managed to have their rallies confirmed by MACD, which actually widened negatively in both cases. And, whereas gold is poised for a bearish crossover over the 50-week sma over the 5-, silver has already done it. Both gold and silver remain well below their 5-week moving averages. If this is the beginning of a new leg to the bull market, there's still lots of work to do before we have anything approaching confirmation. ~ Precious Points: One More Low to Go? August 23, 2008

Gold in a Bull or Bear Market? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst off, let me declare that I am not a congenital bear on gold. Fundamentally, I am convinced that gold is the most valuable commodity on the planet. I just happen to believe that it never was nor ever will be a currency. I hold this belief because the evidence seems to me to point to this conclusion, not because I have some deep seated drive to challenge the combined views of the gold community.

Gold and Oil Slump as Hurricane Gustav Weakens / Commodities / Gold & Silver

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD slipped out of a tight 0.5% range lunchtime in London on Monday, moving below last week's close at $831 per ounce as world stock markets fell and bond prices rose.

Crude oil slid back to $114 a barrel as Hurricane Gustav moved towards Louisiana , closing every oil-rig in the Gulf of Mexico but not gaining strength as it approached a near-deserted New Orleans .

Commodities Bull Market Over? / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Salman_Khan

Recent days have seen an intense debate on the hot topic of the year — commodity prices. We have seen commodities across the board tumble in the past few months. Pessimists have started writing obituaries for the commodity bull and pronounced an end to the ascent in commodity prices. The scale of the rout can be seen in the Reuters-Jefferies CRB index, a basket of 19 commodities, which has fallen below 400 points to its lowest level since early April, a drop of about 14 percent since a record peak above 473 in early July.

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold surged at the open in Asia (from $830/oz to just over $836/oz) but has given up some of the early gains in volatile trade. It remains marginally higher in early trading in London but is under pressure due to continuing dollar strength and the failure of oil to rally significantly despite the threat posed by Hurricane Gustav.

Hurricane Storms Impact on Crude Oil Price / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince January we’ve discussed the influence that the 6-year cycle would have over the year 2008. Already we’ve seen many tokens of its impact, primarily in the financial markets. The late banking crisis and subsequent spillover into other areas of the market have been one of the most prominent features of this year.

One of the main reasons why financial markets have been so volatile and subject to so many cross currents this year is because the 6-year cycle is bottoming while its double cycles, the Kress 12-year cycle, is peaking. The last time the 12-year cycle bottomed was in late September/early October 2002 and its effects on the stock market are well known. It produced the end to the previous bear market that year and marked the birth of a new bull market.

Business Contracts With Clauses for Payment in Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recent US Court of Appeals decision puts Congress' 1977 re-authorization of gold clauses back on the map - just in time to help business owners protect themselves from progressive, terminal dollar-decay

Only a few days before publication of this article, the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit handed down its opinion in 216Jamica Ave. LLC v. S&R Playhouse Realty Co. , holding that a 1982 amendment and assignment of a 1912 lease constituted a "novation" that effectively revived a gold clause that was part of the original lease agreement.
