Silver Short-term Extremely Overbought Situation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past week or so we have been seeing the acceleration by silver that we expected following its anticipated breakout against the Euro and the Swiss France. However, coming on top of strong gains since the low last December, this has resulted in an extremely overbought condition developing.

Crude Oil Topping While Dow Transports Looks Bullish / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let's notice that from July 2007 into the third week of January, rising oil prices, as reflected by the US Oil Trust ETF (NYSE: USO), depressed prices of the DJ Transports, as reflected by the iShares DJ Transport ETF (AMEX: IYT). However, since late January, oil prices and the transports both generally have maintained an upward trajectory. Why? My sense is that the most recent upmove in oil from $70 to $82 in the USO (from $86 to $103 in nearby crude oil) reflects the final, speculative blow-off type move in oil prices -- the aftermath of a sideways congestion period, juxtaposed against a transportation index that is discounting improved economic conditions that should be forthcoming from an accommodative (soon to become a MORE accommodative) Fed.

Investors Dive into Commodities and Resources ...as a Safe Haven? / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Dr_William_R_Swagell

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“With credit and equity out of favour, investment managers ride the commodities price boom...International investment managers have dived into the commodity market to exploit sharp price rises across the board, leaving behind the troubled credit and equity markets to focus on the China-India boom story... ‘The other thing (is the) hedge funds and the commodity trade advisors who can go long and short' said Citi's global head of commodities Alan Heap. ‘They are covering their short positions very aggressively and that is fuelling the fire as well, particularly for copper.” Scott Murdoch, The Australian Feb 23-24, 2008.

IMF GOLD Sales Bonanza for Investors / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf history repeats itself, we will soon be recipients of the biggest windfall of the new millennia. Not since the Bank of England sold 400 tons of its gold in 1999 at the very bottom of the market have gold investors been presented with such good fortune. Ladies and gentlemen, get your pens and checkbooks ready.

Representatives of the world's industrialized nations, the G7, have recommended that the IMF sell 401 tons of its gold to help meet operating expenses. If the sale of IMF gold proceeds, gold investors should be prepared to buy as much as they can—and then some for this will one of the last opportunities to buy gold at current prices.

Gold Heading Towards Critically Overbought Territory / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith silver being in a critically overbought state and looking set to react very soon, we now have to “find reasons” for gold to react on its charts, since it is hardly likely that gold will continue higher while silver is reacting. Fortunately, if we look closely enough, it is not hard to find reasons for gold to react soon along with silver.

Gold Thrust to Break the Magic $1000 Number Imminent / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou can't argue with success. The thrust by gold to get to that magic $1000 number looks within the grasp. Who knows? Another week or two just might do it.

GOLD : LONG TERM
Last week I showed the long term P&F chart. With this past week's action another two Xs could be plotted on the chart. This week I show the Very Long Term chart, or what I refer to as a very long term. It is my weekly chart with a simple 52 week moving average line and a 52 week RSI. It provides another simple view of the long term trend and position of the gold price.

Gold and Silver Trend Recharged by US Dollar Weakness / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne week ago, my forecast did not come to pass for a euro currency sell off, and for a pound sterling sell off. Even the Aussie Dollar forecast of a sell off failed. In fact, in a convincing fashion, all three forecasts were shattered. What happened? Wrong read of the price pattern with indicators? Not really. Wrong assessment of high priority signals? Surely, yes. By that is meant, during a strong GOLD TREND, and WEAK USDOLLAR TREND, cyclical indicators tend to carry less importance in predictive power.

Precious Metals PGM Secular Bull Market / Commodities / Platinum

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals are in the midst of fantastic secular bull markets. And one of the most precious of metals, platinum, has been getting a lot of attention in recent weeks. With geopolitical strife accentuating platinum's current supply shortfalls, speculators have grabbed hold of this metal and launched its price into a parabolic ascent.

While gold still remains king of all metals for a variety of fundamental reasons, platinum is more precious simply because of its price. Its rarity in the earth's crust combined with the challenges of economically extracting it keeps its value typically about twice that of gold.

He describes Ron Paul's campaign to restore Constitutional money in the U.S. as being "populist".

Central Banks Gold Sales Reduced by 400 Tonnes? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it was learned that the Treasury was to support the sale of 400 tonnes of gold all were surprised. We realized that Congress would still have to be asked to approve the sale. When the mist cleared and we saw in sharp focus what lay ahead we realized that much more needed to be done before the sales became a reality. These are the steps still to be overcome for these sales to take place:

What Do Precious Metal Investors to Do Now? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Investmentscore.com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConsider the following hypothetical scenario and typical investor conundrum: The price of precious metals is grinding higher, catching the attention of new investors to the sector. The price of silver and gold are well above their 50 and 200 day moving averages and many of these new investors seek opinions on how to proceed. Notice that most commentators are bullish, and price movements do not appear to have reached extreme levels in comparison to past price movements. But now what do you do? If an investor buys in now they risk a drop in the currently advancing price but if they wait they risk missing out on the next let up.

Uranium Stocks Frustrating Trend / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

1% here and 1% there but still we're not getting anywhere. It's a little frustrating waiting for some significant action but all we get is nibble, nibble. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index was up another 0.037 points or 1.05%. Looking at the chart that still hasn't gotten us where I would like to see the Index, that is, decisively through those resistance levels and on into new rally highs. But no, it's nibble, nibble. There were 25 winners on the day and 24 losers with one unchanged. You can't get much closer to a neutral day than that. Still no run-away winners (or losers).

Gold Accelerating Towards Blow off Top / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) ETF has accelerated into my preferred target zone at 95.00-96.50 for the conclusion of the current upleg that started earlier this week after testing the 92.00 area twice. Right now, the pattern and momentum work point higher -- towards the top of the Jan-Feb channel near 96.50, and if this advance follows the usual rules that govern price behavior in channel analysis, then the GLD likely will pop through the upper channel line (above 96.50) in a blow-off type of completion of the current upleg. At this juncture, only a decline that breaks below 94.50 will begin to neutralize additional upside expectations.
