Gold - You Can't Keep a Good Metal Down / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“The first resistance level in gold [is] at about $890, while … support [is] at about $861. The wide latitude … represents a range for traders. With additional rate cuts almost undoubtedly on the way, it's reasonable to see a more triangular correction in gold, if not new highs before the end of the quarter. That said, it's important to understand that even a larger degree triangle, as opposed to a deeper selloff, could still see gold trading to the $775-780 area in relatively short order. Those who've ridden this high should appropriately see themselves closer to the end of this move than the beginning.” ~ Precious Points: Let Them Eat Cake! January 18, 2008

Working Paper Synopsis: The Search for the Beta of Commodity Futures / Commodities / Learn to Trade

By: Mack_Frankfurter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn comparing modern finance with behavioral finance, Dr. George M. Frankfurter, Lloyd F. Collette Professor Emeritus Louisiana State University, and Dr. Elton G. McGoun, Professor of Finance Bucknell University, in their article “ Resistance is Futile: The Assimilation of Behavioral Finance, ” [1] make the following astute observation which can similarly be applied to our analysis of the various commodity asset pricing models we investigated: “What has happened is that we've used these assumptions for so long that we've forgotten that we've merely made assumptions, and we've come to believe that the world is necessarily this way.” Likewise, our working paper, “ Is Managed Futures an Asset Class? The Search for the Beta of Commodity Futures ,” suggests that the models we examined have inherent shortcomings when analyzing the commodity futures markets. This article summarizes that study which is available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1029243 .

Response to the Anti-Gold Gospel / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Anatole Kaletsky is the author of the most recent Anti-Gold Gospel ( www.gavekal.com , January 21, 2008.) He is an establishment journalist, Associate Editor (formerly Economics Editor) of The Times . He says that he instinctively dislikes gold because “historically gold has been a terrible investment and, even in the short term, gold has failed as a store of value”. I am satisfied to leave this statement to stand on its own, and wish Kaletsky good luck in seeking a better store of value in fiat currencies.

$150 Billion Stimulus Package Positive for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Volatile was the word this week in equity and currency markets across the world. The average investor -- whether institutional or individual -- does not like to feel uncertain. So we protect ourselves from it the best we can. The results were that global markets acted on the worst-possible scenario. At the beginning of the week there was recession with the potential to get worse. Then came the 0.75% cut in Fed Fund rates. Together with talk around the $150 billion tax breaks from the White House, this was expected to send the global economy back on the growth track -- even though it would be at the expense of the USD. But hope wasn't enough. But markets are not falling and have recovered to a large extent, so far. But investors are still jaundiced by the realities of the moves.

Price Structure Peaking for Gold Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My pattern, momentum and cycle work on the Market Vectors Gold ETF (AMEX: GDX) suggest strongly that the price structure is peaking and could roll over at just about any time in the upcoming two weeks. This is also due to my perception that the underlying fundamentals have turned less friendly towards the miners, gold "consumption," inflation, and the overall bull market in equities.

Gold Outlook Strong As Global Credit Crisis Worsens / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Gold rallied $22.20 to $907 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday and silver surged 45 cents to $16.25 per ounce. Both rose again in late Asian trading overnight, and in early European trading gold has surged to new record highs at $923.60. Gold has now surged to new record highs in all major currencies.

Silver - Not too Late to Hedge Against Dollar Stock Market Investment Losses / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike many silver and gold investors, my eyes were glued to the ticker tape this week wondering how silver and its derivative stocks would fare during this downturn in the global markets. To think that silver would be unaffected would be naïve but of course the question was in which way would it be affected? Would it go up, down or move in a channel?

Gold Surges to New All-time High as South Africa Suspends ALL Gold Mining / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES rose 1.3% overnight Friday, reaching new all-time highs above $923 per ounce as all gold-mining operations in South Africa – the world's No.2 gold producer – were shut down by a power shortage.

State-owned energy firm Eskom today told mining giants AngloGold Ashanti , GoldFields and Harmony that it can not guarantee current power supplies to their mines.

Gold Bull Trap Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My near and intermediate-term work is warning me that 3 session climbs from $850 to $911 (so far) in spot gold will turn out to be a trap (bull trap) and part of a near-term topping process just above $900, prior to another bout of corrective weakness that presses prices into the $800-$770 area in the weeks ahead. The upleg pattern off of the August 2007 low at $641.00 to the January 14th high at $914.00 exhibits the look of completion. In addition, the heretofore reliable 15-18 week cycle (low to low) is now in its 8th week.

Gold and Silver ETF's (GLD, SLV) Disparities With Gold Price Means Higher Risk / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Richard_J_Greene

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have heard from many investors inquiring if they should sell their gold stocks and just buy the gold and silver ETFs. The first thing they should understand is that doing so would prolong the time they must wait for gold and silver to reach their true market levels which are much higher. The gold and silver ETFs were created by such financial giants as JP Morgan and Barclay's Bank that also serve as custodians and sub-custodians. These are the very firms that have been involved in the process of short selling gold and silver in huge quantities. That they would be involved in creating the ETFs had to be considered as most unlikely unless they had nefarious purposes.

NYBOT Plans to Close Trading Floor - The End of an Era / Commodities / Financial Markets

By: George_Kleinman

“They're not just getting rich…they're getting even”--Trading Places [1983]

There's an electric tension in the air as our heroes, Louis Winthorpe III and Bill Ray Valentine, muscle their way through the crowd of traders lining the New York Board of Trade's (NYBoT) frozen concentrated orange juice (FCOJ) trading pit. The traders are nervous with the anticipation of what's to come, sweating from the heat generated by more than 100 tightly packed bodies. The clerks manning the phones surrounding the pit are on high alert.

Gold Stocks - The Next Stock Market Sector to Crash? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have thought hard for a long time about writing this article. There is a danger that it might spook a lot of investors out of gold stocks and gold mutual funds altogether, and therefore bring unnecessary loss to many people. On the other hand, this one article will probably not be that influential.

I cannot shake the feeling that, during the first part of 2008 at least, gold stocks will have a whale of a bad time. Yet, nobody wants to address the subject because most so-called gold bugs are really gold stock bugs. Nobody wants to scare their own customers away, but there is a time when a warning is due, and I think hat time is now.

Gold Stocks Bull Market - Have No Fear, Wave [3] of III of the HUI Gold Bugs Index is Nearly Here / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne fault with Elliott Wave if considered a fault is that price objectives can be reached quicker than anticipated. When small indices such as the HUI are examined, slapping an Elliott Wave count onto it can be rather difficult. Such a small representation of the global indices can cause prices to move rather quickly, so there MUST be some allowance for the behaviour and structure of patterns. I would be the first to admit flaws with the counts presented below, but as described in “The Technical Palette” written in September 2006, using Frame Shift Analysis aids in determination of the correct reading frame of a selected section of chart within surrounding wave structures. By providing a realistic balance with wave structures, a somewhat accurate road map can be painted to guide the investor for where things stand in the big picture.

Mining Stocks Dragged Down By Stock Market Panic / Commodities / Gold & Silver

As investors, one of our main goals is to keep various market movements in perspective. The Canadian TSX stock exchange fell over 600 points, leaving many investors with a feeling of panic. As mining equities were dragged lower in the down draft of the TSX fall, many precious metals investors questioned their decision to invest in commodities and now wonder if the bull market is over.

Gold Rallies, European Equities Miss Out on the US Interest Rate Bounce / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES held steady on Wednesday morning in London , recording an AM Fix just off the overnight low of $887.80 per ounce while European stock markets continued to fall despite yesterday's emergency rate cut by the US Federal Reserve.

All 30 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News now expect the Bank of England to cut its key lending rate to 5.25% when it meets on Feb. 4th. "From a European perspective," agrees Amit Kara, an economist at UBS, "the Fed cut [also] adds to the risk of more and quicker rate cuts here.

Ok, so you have never looked at a chart of prices for feeder steers. As the equity markets continue the traumatic process of shedding yesterday's themes in order to move on tomorrow's ideas, investors are going to look at a lot of charts new to their experience. Despite Bailout Bernanke's efforts to save the banks, the financial stocks are passing into history. Agri-Food is the future, not bank stocks.

Gold continues to perform quite beautifully.

And these are not simply short term rallies. These are real highs and very real price gains. Right now there appears to be a great disconnect between the gold price and the price of gold stocks. But I am here to remind you that this disconnect is slowly evaporating away. The following individual below is an individual worth listening to.

World Stock Markets Crash on Black Monday / Commodities / Gold & Silver

SPOT GOLD PRICES dropped 1.6% to hit a two-week low early in London on Monday as global equity markets collapsed on what one Hong Kong stock broker called "another horrible day."

"Today it's because of disappointment that the US stimulus package [announced Friday] is too little, too late," said Francis Lun at Fulbright Securities to the Associated Press overnight.
