Silver Standard Resources Up 11.47% / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

We are pleased to report that Silver Standard Resources Incorporated gained a massive $3.49 yesterday as it continued on the recovery trail.

Silver Standard (SSRI) has a market capitalisation of $2.11 billion and is one of the largest stocks in the silver-prices portfolio. There is a school of thought that says the big profits will be confined to the junior silver stocks sector, which we don't disagree with, however we do believe that quality silver stocks will perform and bring us good returns. Do bear in mind that picking the right junior stock is also difficult as some of them may not find any silver and will not be around when this market explodes across the finishing line. And a gain of 11.47% in one day is not too shabby, probably one of the best silver stock gainers yesterday.

Gold Bull Market Resmues As Inflation Equals Higher Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

“To The Moon, Margaret!”

GoldDon't you just feel real sorry for gold? Look at that poor chart below and weep. Actually weep for those idiots who cannot recognize a gold bull market when they see one. Hah! Gold will yet go where gold wants to go and perhaps where it has never been before – higher Margarita.

As the world leans further and further to financial doomsday is anyone even awake to the fact? Not really, except for those who are having their homes foreclosed.

Commodity Markets Analysis - Gold To Break $700 As Sept 11th Anniversary Nears / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Spot gold was trading at $697.50/698.00 an ounce as of 1215 GMT.

Gold has continued to show strength in Asian and European trading and remains near 16 month highs. Besides a weak dollar and near record oil prices, gold was also bolstered by a resumption of geopolitical tension in the Middle East, with Syria accusing Israel of bombing its territory. With the 6 year anniversary of September 11 atrocity next Tuesday and Osama Bin Laden again in the news, risk aversion and safe haven buying is contributing to gold's strength. This is seen in strong inflows into gold ETFs and we have experienced a strong pick up in sales of both physical bullion and Perth Mint gold certificates.

Gold Bull Market Breakout As Credit Crunch Creates Flight to Quality / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Thursday, December Gold leaped $14 to $704, while the continuous spot contract gained about 2% to 694. More impressive to me was how the mining stocks acted. Recently I had mentioned that I thought the gold stocks would begin to take their cue from gold rather than stock market, when gold exceeded $700. Today's action certainly validated that. The XAU was up 5.7% and the HUI rose 6.6%. One day does not make a trend, but if you are a gold bull, you have to like the present situation.

I have so many informative charts to show, but I had to break it down to the most pertinent. There still are quite a few in this update.

Commodity Markets Analysis - Central Banks to Curtail Plans to Sell Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Gold
Spot gold was trading at $683.50/684.00 an ounce as of 1215 GMT.

Gold has continued to show strength in Asian and European trading. Gold is being supported by a weaker dollar and near record oil prices again. The continuing uncertainty in the financial markets is likely to be leading to an increase in safe haven buying as well.

Can the "Bernanke Put" Lift Gold Sharply Higher? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

“I only know of two men who really understand the true value of gold, an obscure clerk in the basement vault of the Banque de Paris and one of the directors of the Bank of England. Unfortunately, they disagree,” remarked Nathan Mayer Rothschild, the former owner and operator of England's Royal Mint Refinery, and the primary gold agent to the Bank of England in the early 1800's.

When the Bank of England's gold reserve was drained by the costs of the Napoleonic wars, down to 235,000 ounces (£1 million) against note issue liabilities of £15.5 million, it was Nathan who sent secret shipments of gold and silver to Wellington's army in Europe and financed the defeat of Napoleon. In 1825, it was Nathan who rescued the Bank of England and prevented the collapse of the entire British banking system, after a run on gold caused the collapse of 145 banks.

Gold Seasonal Move Starts in September. But Do Not Celebrate Yet / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter a long and dull summer, gold is about to enter its normal seasonal strong period. Much of the increase comes from the increased demand of the Indian wedding jewelery industry in the 4th quarter. But extra momentum is also normally delivered from the declining U.S. dollar. However, as the currency is now resting on solid support at $0.80, is the near-term outlook for gold that bright? Read full article... Read full article...

Glittering Gold Emerges from Bullish Coil Pattern / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

There are multiple reasons why gold and its ETF, the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD), could be emerging (finally) from a 15 month sideways bullish coil pattern.

To start, the GLD has been in a powerful bull trend since its Feb. '04 low at 41.00. In addition, the dollar has been relatively weak recently, and has been in a powerful stair-step downtrend versus the euro since Nov. 2005 (1.1640), which is a very supportive underlying factor for gold.

Are Your Precious Metals Investments Held By A Third Party? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Clark

When having precious metals investments held by the selling dealer or another custody company, how can investors know their precious metals really exist and that they are, in fact, being securely stored for their benefit?

When buying precious metals, or any investment for that matter, most investors today take precautions to ensure they are dealing with a reputable seller, so they can be confident their transactions will be completed properly and delivery of the investment products they purchase will actually be made. These investors may ask for, and check the dealer's references or investigate the dealer's history of service and performance by some other means, before they proceed to transact business with that dealer.

Gold Rallying Towards Resistance / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Spot Gold prices are about $9 higher this AM, and appear to be heading for a confrontation with $700.... which is lifting the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD). As we speak the GLD is heading for a test of its major resistance line (67.60) that originated at the May 2006 high at 72.26. In that my pattern, momentum and cycle work argue for upside continuation, I have to believe that the powerful resistance line with be hurdled on the way to a test of the April 2007 high at 68.73 (next target).

GOLD UPSIDE BREAKOUT ALERT! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is now in position to break above last year's highs and embark on a major uptrend. On the 2-year chart we can see how, just by virtue of tracking sideways in a narrow range in recent weeks, it is getting clear of the resistance in the vicinity of the Distribution Dome, which of course signals that the distribution phase in the dome pattern is over - those who wanted to sell have done so. While there remains a residual danger of a Head-and-Shoulders top completing as shown on the chart, this risk is now regarded as minimal for reasons that will soon become clear.

Silver Very Bullish Commitment of Traders Report / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

A week or so ago some financial reporters went on a quest to find silver bulls and gave up and went looking for lottery winners instead.

At first glance the silver chart looks terrible, with last month's dramatic breakdown below an important support level causing its moving averages to roll over and momentum to break to an 11-month low, and appears to confirm a Double Top with last year's highs, with the price accelerating away to the downside. So the pullback of the past couple of weeks towards what is now resistance is understandably regarded by many disenchanted bulls as an opportunity to quit in disgust at a slightly better price. However, as we shall see, there is now strong evidence that the August plunge was a final capitulative flushout, and that sophisticated traders have been gleefully mopping up the abundant supply in recent weeks from the disillusioned habitual losers, principally the Large Spec traders.

Gold Hits Four-Week High; Credit Crunch "Barely Begun" for German Banks / Commodities / Credit Crunch

SPOT GOLD PRICES rose steadily against the US Dollar in early London trade, nearing a four-week high of $675 per ounce as Wall Street got back to work after Labor Day.

The metal also touched new three-week highs against the Euro and British Pound, but it held flat versus the Yen as the Japanese currency – source of $1,050 billion in lending by the end of April according to a new report from Bank for International Settlements – rose in the forex market.
