Why Silver is Set To GO THROUGH THE ROOF... / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was somewhat odd that despite the extraordinarily bullish COT profile for silver, as of last weekend, gold took center stage and has soared during this week as predicted, despite its COT profile not being as dramatically bullish as that for silver, but that's fine by us as it has afforded time to get this article up. Of course, the reason for silver's underperformance relative to gold so far this week is not hard to find - silver broke down below important support last month, whereas gold didn't, and now silver is having to battle the resulting negative sentiment and supply overhang.

Gold Price and Stocks Expected to Digest Recent Gains Before Continuing Higher / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Under "normal" circumstances, the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) should be at or nearing a digestion and/or pullback period. Maybe it can loop up one more time to 72+, but the vast majority of my near-term work is warning me to step aside to allow the GLD to rest and correct. If that proves correct, then I expect a corrective period, or sequence, that traverses a range between 72 and 70, if not down to 69-68 prior to the next upleg.

AGRI-FOOD THOUGHTS - China Consumer Boom Means Higher Soft Commodity Prices / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs incomes rise in China and India, their consumers will dictate prices for oil and food. Their preferences are setting relative prices of nearly all commodities. These preferences have shifted to reflect their higher incomes, and will continue to do so. Chart below portrays per capita consumption of beef and rice by Chinese consumers, per UN FAO. Beef is now a preferred item on the menu at Chinese homes. Magnifying this shift is number of consumers in China and India. Such preference shifts have caused prices of grains and meats around world to rise. Higher beef consumption means raising more beef. Raising more beef means using more grain. More grain is consumed to feed the beef than is freed up from eating less rice. Agri-Food growth cycle that has emerged is really that simple.

Gold Top Forming, Bearish Nearterm Outlook - Technically Precious with Merv / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, it's been a good upside run for gold these past few weeks but it is starting to look like a top and possible lower prices ahead.

GOLD PRICES
If one looks carefully one can spot slightly different prices for gold in various media and internet sites, all quoted as prices on the same day. One should remember that gold prices come from different sources. There is the London price. There is the Hong Kong price. There is the Sydney price. But the price I use for my data is the New York Mercantile Exchange price. Even here one has many choices. You could use the “Cash” price or you can use the prices for any one of several futures contract months. I like to use the source that has the most trading activity to obtain the best idea of where the professionals, traders, speculators and the like are operating with their money.

Bullish Precious Metals, Crude Oil, and Gold Stocks / Commodities / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the Fed hyperinflates, sacrificing the Dollar to bail out a deteriorating economy, precious metals and Gold stocks are benefiting. Gold and the HUI are close to bullish breakouts.

Gold finished the Minor degree wave 3 of Intermediate degree 1 up on May 12th at $730.40. Gold 's Minor degree wave 4 is a Symmetrical Triangle , which is a consolidation pattern of the Minor degree wave 3 rally that started back in 2001 and extended into the May 12th, 2006 top. Waves a through e within wave 4 are complete. A break above $730 would confirm that the triangle is complete, and wave 5 up is underway, and would be a “buy” signal. We came close to that level this past week.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: Old Number 7 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“The weekly chart in the yellow metal shows a little more room to run as price rockets upward from the 5-week moving average. Though silver closed above the 50-day sma, the vibration around this level suggests it could be retested early next week, with $12.60-12.65 probably providing good support. A positive test would clear the path for $13.00, which should prove formidable.” ~ Precious Points: Sustainable Growth? , September 9, 2007

Investing in Liquid Natural Gas as the Next Energy Growth Story / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBudapest , Hungary - Cruising along the Danube River in central Europe this week, I've passed through several rapidly growing economies in the former Eastern Bloc, including Hungary and Slovakia.

Having visited Eastern Europe on several occasions in the past decade, it's amazing to see just how modern and developed these countries are becoming. Consumers now walk the streets chatting on mobile phones and sporting the latest Italian fashion just as in the big Western European capitals. Meanwhile, prime real estate in the center of a major capital like Budapest or Prague has seen dramatic price inflation in recent years, with property prices now approaching the levels of some US and European cities.

HUI Gold Bugs Index Upleg Cycles / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRemember the brutal first hour of trading on August 16th? That was the fateful day when a mini-panic ripped through gold stocks like a tornado. The HUI plunged 10% in the first hour of trading and some high-potential smaller gold stocks plummeted over 25%! For leveraged PM-stock speculators, it felt like Armageddon.

Sentiment that morning was about as bad as it has ever been in this precious-metals bull. Gold and silver miners were loathed and calls for much deeper lows abounded. Yet just 15 trading days later, gold powered above $700 for the first time since May 2006. This gold breakout drove a strong PM-stock surge and the HUI quickly shot above its pre-August-mini-panic levels.
