A New Floor in the Gold Price? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

"...And here's where the thick red-wax crayon joins the slump of Spring 2008 to the big spike of May 2007..."

AFTER NOTING an historic move higher in the Gold Price last month, maybe we should be wary of picking a bottom today.

A $1 million Wager for Gold Bears / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Gold bullion is under water at the moment with the price having dived sharply over the past two weeks. This move has triggered a myriad opinions ranging from the end of gold's 7-year bull market to a mere healthy correction in an ongoing uptrend. But few pundits have as strong a conviction as Jim Sinclair who is putting his money where his mouth is – $1 million smackaroos, to be exact, that the gold price will trade at US$1,650 before the second week of January 2011. Any takers? (Let's hope this is not Jim's version of an April Fool's hoax!)

Gold Recovers as Emerging Economies Scramble to Cap Food-Price Inflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD rose steadily in European trade early Wednesday, adding more than 1% from last night's New York finish as Asian stock markets closed sharply higher.

European stock markets held flat, however, while crude oil added one dollar to $101.96 per barrel and short-dated US Treasury bonds bounced higher from Tuesday's sell-off.

Soaring Rice Prices Cause for Developing World Food Riots / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Rice is an all important staple food in much of the world. In the past year, the price of rice has rocketed from under $11 to more than $19, and even above $20 in overnight electronic trading. These prices are now the cause of food riots around the world. In recent times they occurred in Guinea, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Senegal, Uzbekistan and Yemen (NY Times,29 Mar 2008) . In the Philippines, the government is worried about hoarding as that nation imports almost twenty percent of its rice consumption. Restrictions on global supplies are slowly developing.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE of physical gold bullion sank to a two-month low of $889 at the start of London trade on Tuesday, taking the last fortnight's losses to more than 14% before recovering to $897 per ounce.

Gold and a Newer Generation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Well, now that gold has surpassed 1,000 an ounce it should be preparing for its dramatic descent. The fact is that the common man has been brainwashed for 20 years that gold is bad and evil. Now that it is over 900 he knows by all his learning that gold should soon drop through the floor. Small investors all around the country are selling their physical gold for paper dollars.

Silver, Gold and JFK the Last American Hero / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis Articlehero, def. a man distinguished by exceptional courage and nobility and strength - wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

Like everything in our past, the late American president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, exists as a memory. Struck down by an assassin in a decade where bullets—democracy's deadly equalizer—quieted those brave enough to champion change, e.g. JFK, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was a true American hero; and heroes, while a champion to many are, by definition, a threat to some.

Gold and Silver Bearish Momentum / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe week started okay but ended on a sour note. It's not the time to panic yet but not the time to plunge in either. One should have well placed stops, relax and watch the action in comfort. Let others tear their hair out worrying what will happen next.

GOLD : LONG TERM
Nothing much has happened in the long term P&F chart so no need to comment on it this week. You may go to archive commentaries for still appropriate P&F analysis.

Why Food Prices will go through the Roof in coming Months / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA deadly fungus, known as Ug99, which kills wheat, has likely spread to Pakistan from Africa according to reports. If true, that threatens the vital Asian Bread Basket including the Pu nj ab region. The spread of the deadly virus, stem rust, against which an effective fungicide does not exist, comes as world grain stocks reach the lowest in four decades and government subsidized bio-ethanol production, especially in the USA, Brazil and EU are taking land out of food production at alarming rates. The deadly fungus is being used by Monsanto and the US Government to spread patented GMO seeds.

Gold and Silver Remain Overbought / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“Notice two important indicators may be showing short term support ahead in gold. Silver may be putting in an internal fourth wave.” ~ Precious Points: What Goes Up…, March 22, 2008

If last week's update said gold could go to $800 and silver to $15 without technically damaging their bull markets, then some might assume the positive price action last week in precious metals must be super-bullish and that it's time to pile back in. But that's clearly not the case, as shown in the weekly gold chart below.

Gold Fundamentals Are Being Ignored / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Handbury

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlmost every article on gold seems to be stating that the yellow metal is being bought up due to these troubled economic times. If I hear the words “safe haven” again, I'm going to be sick. In other words, it is proposed that investors will lose confidence in the value of the dollar and revert back to the olden days of bartering in physical goods. Analysts are throwing around ridiculous forecasts for gold of $2,000, $5,000, even $100,000 per troy ounce.

The Mega Commodity Move: Why It's Happening / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Aden_Forecast

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals have been soaring. Gold, silver, platinum, palladium… you name it. If it's a metal, it's been booming. The same is true of other commodities too. So are commodities the new bubble? Have they replaced the real estate bubble, which replaced the tech stock bubble, as investors move from one bubble to another? It sure looks like it. But the big difference is that this metals and commodities bubble has a lot further to go. Why?

Investing in Junior Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Junior gold stocks” is a three-word expression that for some breeds dismay, trepidation, and anger. But for others it illuminates excitement, opportunity, and profits. Regardless of which camp an investor resides, one thing is for certain. During this fantastic 7-year-running secular gold bull, the junior gold stock realm has been host to a highly-volatile range of sentimental extremes.

Gold Drops 1.5% as US Core PCE Inflation Falls / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES dropped to a three-session low as the New York opening drew near on Friday after the Commerce Dept. said a key measure of US price inflation dipped last month.

The "Core PCE" inflation – which strips out both food and fuel prices, and which is closely watched by the Federal Reserve – rose by 2.0% in the year-to-February, just shy of Wall Street forecasts.

Silver Bull Market Outperforming Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn August of 2004, when Silver was $6 and Gold was $380 I wrote the 4 reasons for liking silver more than gold.

- Supply and demand -
Mine production could not satisfy physical demands of either gold or silver. However, I like silver better because most official sectors, such as the US government, have run out of silver. Only governments do nutty things like selling a valuable asset to suppress its price. I trust the private enterprises holding silver stockpiles to be logical (i.e. profit-seeking) participants in the silver market.
