Review: Profit from the Peak Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: David_Shvartsman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre we nearing the end of the Oil Age?

Is the end of a cheap fossil fuel era at hand? How will we make the transition from a world dependent on hydrocarbon energy to one powered by a mix of hydrocarbons and renewable energy, and can we profit from this coming shift?

Gold Approaching Short-term Low / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The hourly pattern argues that in and around the 77.00 area, the downleg in the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) from its 7/15 high "achieved" the look of completion. If that is the case, then in the hours directly ahead the GLD should reverse sharply, fill today's gap-down open at 79.20, and close above the top of the gap to signal that a very significant near-term low has been established. Beyond the gap, the GLD must hurlde and sustain 82.00 to confirm a more substantial upside reversal.

Crude Oil Demand Destruction Overdone? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMuch ado has been made of ‘demand destruction', an economic term that refers to declining demand for a good due to high prices. The past month or so the mainstream US press has latched onto demand destruction as a reason for the decline in oil prices much in the same way they blamed speculators for high oil prices just a few weeks earlier.

Also, when talking about demand destruction, they will refer to US numbers only; conveniently forgetting the rest of the world. The mindset here is still that the US is the top dog and the rest of the globe is irrelevant. So let's indulge them in their narrow-mindedness for a minute and look only at US consumption as presented by the Energy Information Administration.

Epic Gold Stocks Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious-metals stocks did not take kindly to gold's steep selloff this week. On Monday the flagship HUI gold-stock index plunged 6.0% at the climax of what can only be described as a crash. In this event's final 3 days, the HUI bled 13.1% of its value. In less than a month, it had plummeted 33.1% by the time the dust settled!

Although the HUI has a well-deserved reputation for extreme volatility, this selloff was still exceptional. Typically, sharp HUI declines emerge after major uplegs from high levels. But as you'll see in these charts, the HUI wasn't high technically when this heavy selling started battering it as August dawned. In fact it was already pretty beaten-up pre-crash , under both its summer support and 200-day moving average.

Western European stock prices rose meantime in early trade, averaging 0.8% gains despite this week's clear signals of economic recession ahead.

DIG Proshares Ultra Long Gas & Oil ETF Carving Out New Trading Range / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The natural gas inventory data did not have much of an impact on the ProShares Ultra Long Oil & Gas ETF (AMEX: DIG), which appears to be carving out a new trading range between 84.00 and 80.50, after emerging yesterday from a lower trading range between 76.00 and 80.00. The higher range represents the next phase of the basing attempt that has been in progress for the past week. A sustained hurdle of 84.50/70 is needed to trigger additional upside potential off of the base into the 89.00-90.00 target zone. Conversely, a breach of 80.50/00 near-term support will begin to compromise the efficacy of the developing base pattern.

Gold bullion remains an essential diversification and essential financial insurance to have in all properly diversified portfolios.

Precious Metals Stocks on Major Buy Alert / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you take a stroll around the financial district of any big city such as London, New York or Tokyo, you will walk past countless well dressed and groomed men, in smart suits and ties with tidily coiffured hair and neatly clipped nails, and if you listen to their conversations you will observe that many of them speak softly in measured tones. The image conveyed is one of poise and professionalism. Yet beneath the veneer of civility and reasonableness there frequently lurks a seething cauldron of greed, lust - and fear, a fact which many women are instinctively aware of and which business women are able to turn to their advantage.

Crude Oil Spike Fails to Break Above Resistance / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Very interesting situation developing in nearby crude. Let's notice that the post DOE data spike propelled prices to $115.69 (so far), which hurdled the August resistance line at $114.80, benefiting our earlier ProShares Ultra-Long Oil & Gas ETF (AMEX: DIG) position. But it failed to hurdle the prior rally peak at $115.95 established yesterday.

Strong US Dollar Drives Gold Lower / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES gave back all of a 1.5% rally late-morning in London on Wednesday, dropping below $815 per ounce in thin but frantic trade as the US Dollar continued to rally against pretty much everything.

Crude oil ticked back above $113 per barrel – down almost 25% from its top of early July ahead of today's much-anticipated US inventory stockpiles report – while base metals continued to slide.

Gold's recent merciless sell off continued yesterday. But, the dollar's incredible five day surge appeared to come to an end yesterday, with a sell off on Wall Street (on concerns about financials and slowing global growth) stopping it in its tracks.

Gold Extremely Oversold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

In most recent Trading Thoughts we reported that the largest purchases of U.S. government debt by foreign official institutions had occurred in the prior week. Initially, reason for those purchases was a mystery. That is, until Russia decided to crush Georgia militarily. Russian army does not move into invasion mode without some prior preparations. Someone knew what was to happen. Massive amount of money flowed, at a $1.4+ trillion annual rate, into U.S. debt in less than a week.

Gold Trying to Make a Bottom / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter falling 40 dollars Monday morning and dragging the HUI down 20 points there are some short-term technical signs that gold may be near a bottom of some sorts. First gold finally fell down hard one morning to start to catch up with the steep drop we have seen in gold stocks. Gold also fell down to its 65-week moving average, which has been its long-term support level for the past six years.

Gold Bull Market Correction Elliott Wave Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alistair_Gilbert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCaptain Ron has presented his well-reasoned case for Gold for the Bulls today and whilst our long-term viewpoint is the same, I believe that this correction is not over in either TIME or PRICE yet. But correction it is, NOT the end of the Bull market.

In order to determine where we are in the short-term wave count we have to stand back and look at the long-term wave count. Last week I presented the quarterly charts on a number of commodities that to me show quite clearly where we are. Below I show the quarterly DELTA chart on Gold and this time I have put my wave counts on the chart.

Bear Comparison: Today's Junior Resource Mining Sector vs 2001's Nasdaq / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

"Another lesson I learned early is that there is nothing new in Wall Street. There can't be because speculation is as old as the hills. Whatever happens in the stock market today has happened before and will happen again. I've never forgotten that. I suppose I really manage to remember when and how it happened. The fact that I remember that way is my way of capitalizing experience." - Jesse Livermore, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator
