Gold and Silver Analysis - Bull Trap in Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“If the triangle is going to prove correct, the question becomes whether the e wave low is in place or is another small low to come. Either scenario would be bullish for gold as it would make imminent the start of a 5th wave move to new highs, which a move back above the 5-week sma at $800 would tend to confirm. An alternate that keeps the recent selling corrective … looks for a lower low in the $750-775 range. The question from a fundamental standpoint will be whether the forces causing this consolidation in metals will persist enough to take gold to it's lower target, or strengthen enough to take the bullish shine off silver and metals altogether.” ~Precious Points: More Tough Love from Bernanke and Co.

Gold Gaps UP, Targeting Trend to $850 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The streetTracks GOLD ETF (NYSE: GLD) gapped up this morning and has pushed up through its Nov-Dec resistance line at 80.00, which if sustained should trigger upside acceleration from the bullish triangle pattern that has developed during the past 7 weeks, and which projects an optimal target zone of 85.00-86.00.

Gold Stock Sentiment Paradox - HUI/Gold Ratio Trends / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you are a gold-stock investor, the dark cold days surrounding the winter solstice seem exceptionally fitting this year. As the warm sunlight has largely fled the northern hemisphere, so has bullish sentiment largely fled the gold stocks. Thankfully as inevitably as sun returning to the north, gold-stock sentiment too will thaw.

Today's terrible gold-stock sentiment is really something of a paradox. The gold price is the primary long-term driver of gold miners' profits and hence their stock prices. And gold is really looking good these days. After powering over $800 nominal for the first time in a quarter century in early November, gold has since casually meandered near $800 like it was born to trade here.

Gold Remains in Tight Trading Range over Christmas Holidays / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold was down $2.60 to $798.50 per ounce in New York yesterday but silver was up 14 cents to $14.21 per ounce. Gold traded sideways in Asia and ticked up in Europe and the London AM Fix was at $803 (up from $799.50). At the London AM Fix gold was trading at a new all time record in British pounds at £404.68 GBP (up from yesterday's London AM Fix at £401.62). Gold went up to €558.88 EUR (up from yesterday's London AM Fix at €557.30 ). Gold has again increased in sterling and in euros. Gold thus surpassed it's all time record high in british pounds with news of the horrendous current account deficit and deteriorating UK economy (see below). Gold will likely reach it's non inflation adjusted highs in euros and dollars early in the New Year.

Uranium Stocks Short-term Trend Improves / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

Well, that's two days in a row. Maybe we have the start of a rally. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index closed up for another day, up 0.106 points or 2.69%. There were a few more winners and a few less losers as requested yesterday. 34 stocks ended the day on the up side while 13 stocks ended the day on the down side. 3 stocks didn't go either way. Unfortunately, we had a mixed day for the five largest stocks. Cameco closed higher by 4.6%, Denison closed higher by 1.2%, Paladin closed lower by 0.4%, UEX closed lower by 0.6% and Uranium One closed higher by 1.2%.

How to Make an Income from Gold Investments / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

"Christmas is coming, the champagne's getting flat; "Please put a penny in the old broker's hat..." – David Phillips, The Chart Prophet

ONE OF THE BIG stumbling blocks for investors thinking about gold is that it doesn't offer to pay any income.

That's why bone-headed gold schemes turn up like Simon Cowell at a botox clinic.

Uranium Stocks Rally in Attempt to Break Bearish Trend / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak


Well, it's a start, now if we can only have a few more days like this, or better, we just might get a rally going. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index was up 0.085 points or 2.21% on the day. There were 29 winners and 16 losers with 5 unchanged. It would be nice to see a few more winners and a few less losers, but we will take what we get. Of the five major stocks, Cameco gained 3.5%, Denison gained 0.5%, Paladin, the only loser of the bunch, lost 0.9%, UEX gained 5.4% and Uranium One gained 1.0%. The best daily performer of the 50 component stocks was Triex Minerals with a gain of 23.4% while the worst performer was Pele Mountain with only a 4.8% loss.

2008 Gold and Gold stocks Fundamentals, Forecast and Technical Review / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe fundamentals for gold relates to the confidence level in paper currencies. When demand outstrips supply of dollars, the value of dollars goes up. The supply of dollars has been rising steadily at an average of 10% annually from less than $1 trillion in 1980 to over $12 trillion today. The fundamentals for gold thus have much to do with the lessening demand for dollars.

When dollar denominated assets lose value, people ditch dollars. As we have meticulously documented since August (see here ), the subprime mess has been the dollar's worst disaster in the last three decades. The subprime meltdown is now causing supposedly high-quality government sponsored debts to be selling at 70 cents on the dollar (Mad Cow contagion as we call it).

Only Gold Bullion Can Beat the Credit Crunch / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf course - to any Wall Street power broker, economist, or US policy maker, this headline means the equivalent of “Only Space Aliens Can Halt Teenage Pregnancies”. In other words, it's a total non-sequitur to them.

So what? Who cares about Wall Street, economists, or politicians? Individual investors, business owners, workers, fathers, mothers, and college students, they are the ones who must survive if the United States is to survive the mounting credit collapse more or less intact. Why worry about those who caused the mess?

Gold False Break Lower to Spook Traders Before Resumption of Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe don't normally look at fundamentals in these Gold Market updates, but it is worth stopping for a moment to consider the implications of the latest stroke of genius announced last week by the Fed in its desperate attempts to prevent a credit crunch, as it has important implications for the price of gold.

Like a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, the Fed and foreign central banks announced that they will conjure up $50 billion to inject into the system, which they will generate by selling low interest rate loans for those who like throwing good money after bad, or have no choice but to.

Silver Hit by Dollar Strength - Further Near term Weakness Expected / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the last Silver Market update on 2nd December it was stated that if dollar strength continued as expected, silver could drop below the support zone centered on $14 and head lower towards the next support level in the $13.25 - $13.50 area. Since that time it has held up above the $14 support zone, but it dropped quite sharply late last week on renewed dollar strength and at the time of writing on Sunday 16th it has just broken below this support.

Gold and Silver Stocks Looking Bearish - Traders Don't be Fooled by the End of Day Settlement Prices! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Gold ended the week just about where it started but the “feel” of the activity had a decided negative emphasis. Will this week set the pace for the next few months?

Closing Price versus Settlement Price
I have mentioned in the past that I use gold futures to obtain my gold prices used for charts and analysis. I usually use the contract month with the largest trading volume and open interest. When it comes time to change contract months I may go through a little song and dance routine modifying the price to ease into the new price schedule of the new month. This week we had a vivid picture of another feature of futures prices most investors may not be fully aware of. There are really two different “closing” prices. One is referred to as a closing price by the commodities exchange and the other is referred to as a settlement price. I do not consider myself an expert in commodities and futures and have been curious about these two prices. What I found was quite interesting for a technician who likes to have ACTUAL trading prices to work with.

Worsening Credit Crunch Crisis to Send Gold Soaring and US Dollar Plunging / Commodities / Credit Crunch

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy are the banks hurting so much?

In the U.K. banks have asked top U.K. corporate clients not to draw on lending facilities to which they are entitled in order to preserve their balance sheets as they approach the financial year-end. The banks are urging some of their biggest clients not to draw on standby credit facilities as the sub-prime crisis and squeeze on interbank lending have affected banks' ability to fund themselves. The problems started with the closure of the commercial paper market as a means of cheap funding for companies in the summer. Banks have to provide standby financing of up to 100% to backstop commercial paper programs.
