Silver and its Long-term Cycles / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Tim_Wood

There are two long-term cycles in silver that have historically proven significantly meaningful. The first is the 5-year cycle and the second is the 10-year cycle, with the 10 year cycle being the more dominate of the two cycles. It is important to understand that cycle analysis is nothing more than a method of quantifying market trends of similar degree. Because market cycles ebb and flow and are not rigid, we have to look at the common denominators and develop averages. We can then use these common denominators and averages as a guide for what might be expected in the future.

Washington's Gift to Coal as Democrats Plan to Subsidise Coal Industry / Commodities / Coal

By: Elliot_H_Gue

When the Democrats took control of Congress at the beginning of 2007, many investors assumed coal would become a dirty word. After all, although the abundant fuel has many advantages, limiting pollution and carbon-dioxide emissions isn't one of them.

And Democrats have placed the global warming issue among their top priorities. The rhetoric out of Washington strongly suggests that Congress would like to pass some sort of federal carbon regulation or cap-and-trade scheme eventually.

HUI Gold Bugs Index Irrational Pessimism / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

In a December 1996 speech, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan uttered one of the most famous catch phrases in modern market history. Buried deep in a typically Greenspanian sentence of great length and grammatical complexity, the words “irrational exuberance” cut through his usual obfuscation to rise to immortality.

Greenspan was trying to gently communicate that the US stock markets might be getting a little frothy at the time, so when world stock markets slumped right after his speech the financial media looked to Greenspan's cryptic warning with awe. The notion of irrational exuberance was widely discussed and grew into something of a slogan for the great stock bull of the late 1990s.

The Korean-based steelmaker, with about 6.5 percent of sales coming from stainless steel, is the world's fourth or fifth largest, depending upon production or market capitalization.

Charles Steen was born in Caddo, Texas in 1919. He went on to study at John Tarleton Agricultural College in Stephenville and in 1940 transferred to the Texas College of Mines and Metallurgy at El Paso, receiving a bachelor's degree in geology in 1943. Ineligible for the draft because of his poor eyesight, Steen spent World War II working as a geologist in Bolivia and Peru. Returning to the US in 1945, he married and took a job doing field work for the Standard Oil Company of Indiana .

Gold Bull Market Buy the Dips and Crude Oil About to Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Degraaf

“Ye got yer good news, and ye got yer bad news”

The bad news is that some of you were influenced by the ‘gold bears' who are forever looking at the ‘half-full' glass and calling it ‘half-empty'. You either sold during the past few days, or you allowed these bears to rob you of some good sound sleep!

Will these gold bears ever learn this simple trading rule: WHEN THE 200 DAY MOVING AVERAGE IS RISING, EVERY DIP TOWARDS, OR EVEN BELOW IT, IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BUY!

GOLD THOUGHTS - Shock of Rising Interest Rates Presents Gold Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Reality can truly be a shocking experience. For more than a year, paper equity markets have been deluded into thinking interest rates would decline. Suddenly, looking around the world the discovery was made that interest rates in most countries were rising or were going to rise. Decades ago, the U.S. set domestic interest rates. Today, interest rates are controlled by global investors.

Interest Rates and the Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mario_Innecco

We have recently seen long term bond yields climb quickly through key technical levels. On the 8th of June the U.S. 30 year bond yield climbed through 5.30% and the 10 year bond yield reached 5.24%. The 10 year yield was below 4.90% just a couple of weeks ago and today we have seen bond prices drop lower and the all-important 10 year yield shot through the 5.25% and touched 5.28%! The break of the 5% level was psychologically important and on a technical basis we have seen the 10 year yield break through the upper part of a long term downward trend channel and consequently confirming that the low yield of around 3.10% we saw in 2003 marked the top (in terms of prices) of the bond bull market that started in 1981.

Three Triggers for Higher Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_and_Markets

Sean Brodrick writes : After hitting a nine-month high last week, oil took a shellacking. I guess that means we can all breathe easier and go out and buy HUMMER H3s, right? Not so fast!

Gasoline prices are already 27 cents per gallon higher than they were a year ago, and there is plenty of evidence that they're smoking on the launch pad.

What could be the driving force behind oil's next surge? I can't be sure. That's the challenge — we never know exactly what the oil market will throw at us.

The Greenspan Experiement and Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Apparently that's what we are unfortunately destined to continue living in, the Frankenstein economy he largely created during his tenure at the Fed, and continues to influence to this day. To this, whether intentional or not, and like his most famous irrational exuberance warning from 1996, his comments have the effect of getting people to react, which in the end is to the Fed's benefit. That is to say, if more people run out over the next couple of days and short the stock markets around the world because of this most recent warning on Chinese stocks , then the Fed's mandate will be aided considerably with the floor that will put under prices, that being the maintenance of price stability. So you see, this is just Al the egomaniac extending his influence throughout the world, along with that of the Fed, and the US effectively of course.

Carbon Traders Attracted to China’s Vast Methane Reserves / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: James_Finch

Carbon Traders Attracted to China’s Vast Methane ReservesCarbon traders are utilizing the Kyoto Protocol's clause on 'certified emission reduction' credits to capitalize on China's vast coalbed methane reserves. The Asian director of Fortis' carbon trading desk calls China's methane 'easy pickings.' For every tonne of methane captured, about 20 tons of CO2 credits are obtained. CBM projects in China should indirectly benefit from foreign capital racing to exploit these credits before they expire in 2012

Why the Big Money in Gold Shares Still Lies Ahead / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: John_Mauldin

This week in Outside the Box we take a quizzical gander at the gold market, its growth-to-date, and potential future investment opportunity. We have witnessed a significant rise in the gold market from a July 1999 price of $252 an once, to $653 an once today, an increase of 159%. David Galland, of Casey Research, provides an intriguing analysis of the gold market today and the inherit investment opportunity existent on account of severely curtailed research exploration, institutional obstacles, NGOs, and rising global demand, driven primarily from the emerging market economies.

Bullish Signs for King Coal / Commodities / Coal

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Coal is far and away the world's most-important source of electric power and has been for decades. There are two good reasons for this:

Coal is more abundant than oil or gas, and it's cheap.

Coal is a greater pollutant than either natural gas or emission-free nuclear power. But new scrubbing technologies and plant designs can minimize that pollution. And there's no way the world could replace all its coal-fired plant capacity in any reasonable time frame.

Silver Market Update - Potential Double Top / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

The outlook for silver at this time is remarkably similar to that for gold and for the same reason - they are both threatened by a looming substantial rise in the dollar, which if it occurs, as now looks likely, will result in both gold and silver going into retreat and leaving behind large Double Tops on their charts.

Gold Market Update - Potential Double Top for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

This Gold Market update makes grim reading - if you believe it that is. Gold had been weakening and rounding over since its late February high, and on Thursday and Friday it dropped sharply, breaking below its uptrend in force for nearly 2 years, from July 2005, for the 1st time, after deceptively rising away from it.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: Gold Don’t Go Gentle Into That Goodnight / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Dominick

Joe Nicholson (oroborean) writes: “Now that both gold and silver have climbed above, the 5-day moving average becomes an important support level which, though not inviolable, signals a relatively low risk/reward trade … losing the 5-day average in a single week from a fresh high that marks the crucial turn and ultimate retreat back into the 50-day level …

… If the impetus to cut rates is in fact removed, bond yields could be expected to reach a more historically normal level, above the overnight rate at 5.25% … it’s not the nominal rate, at least not at anywhere near these levels, as much as the rate of increase that would determine the effect on stocks and metals.”
