The World's Five Most Important Oil Fields / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Much has been made about the role that hydraulic fracturing – or fracking -- has played in revolutionizing the energy landscape, unlocking vast new reserves of oil trapped in shale rock. This "tight oil" is pouring into the global pool of oil supplies at a crucial time, preventing oil prices from spiking in an age of high demand and geopolitical turmoil.

Gold & Silver Miners Break Out Despite U.S. Dollar's Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion no speculative positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

The precious metals market moved higher yesterday, which was in tune with what we've been expecting. The key question is if gold, silver and mining stocks have completed their rally or are they still likely to move higher before turning south again.

What Gold Investments Casey Research Staff Are Buying This Summer / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jeff_Clark

I ran across a business show last week that advertised that its guests would give out stock picks. That piqued my curiosity, so I watched to see what they would recommend.

For disclosure purposes, a chart was shown that listed if the speaker, his family, his fund, or his clients owned the stock. By the end of the show, I was flabbergasted—not one speaker owned any stock they recommended!

Will Import Taxes on Solar Panels Hamper Silver Price Ability to Rally? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Bob_Kirtley

Background
Investors are disillusioned by the inability of silver prices to rise to higher ground as silver enters its 4th year of looking anything but sparkling. As a silver bug I think that we have suffered long enough but finding the ignition that will set silver on fire is proving to be difficult. There are a myriad of factors to consider before making an investment in silver such as: supply and demand, price manipulation, industrial usage, jewelry, investment, various metrics such as the gold/silver price ratio, etc. The list is almost endless so today we will look at just one of them which we think is important; the imposition of import duties on solar panels.

GOLD Price Could Test $1000 - Elliott Wave Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Gregor_Horvat

GOLD Weekly

Gold is in sharp reversal mode from all time highs after a completed big five wave rally, so current pullback is probably corrective. We are tracking two counts, where both suggests another leg down. The primary labeling suggests that market is now in sub-wave 4) of (C) that could bottom around 1000 psychological level at the end of the year, or maybe in 2014.

U.S. Bank’s Silver Short Positions send Buy Signal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Submissions

Gold Reporter writes: U.S. Bank’s net short positions have dropped to lowest value in at least 5 years. Could indicate short term anti-cyclic buy signal.

In early June, U.S. banks trading future-contracts at the COMEX, only held a total of 13,234 contracts in net short positions, which equals 2,057 tons of silver forward-sales and depicts the lowest value since Goldreporter started analyzing the monthly data 5 years ago (see chart). For comparison: In February 2013 U.S. banks were 6,249 tons short!

Gold Bullish Summer Seasonals for July, August and September 2014 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Clive_Maund

Although gold remains on the defensive following its latest breakdown, the longer-term outlook remains very good. We can see why on the 2 long-term charts shown below.

On the 14-year log chart the retreat from the 2011 highs still looks like a correction within an ongoing major uptrend - which is not an unreasonable interpretation given that they have not stopped printing money. Gold looks like it has been basing over the past year above its long-term uptrend line, and at this point it looks like the support level at last year's lows at about $1180 will hold, although there are reasons why we could see near-term weakness towards this support that we will consider shortly.

Silver Price Bottom Targets $37.5 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Clive_Maund

The public are now extremely bearish on silver, with a widespread perception that it is "done for", but as we will see, even if there is some further short-term weakness, the longer-term outlook for silver is very bright indeed.

On its 14-year chart, which shows all of the bullmarket in silver from its inception, we can see that, although the drop from the 2011 peak has been severe, involving losses of more than 60% from the highs, it has not thus far resulted in a breakdown from its long-term uptrend, which remains intact. Over the past year silver appears to have been basing in the zone of strong support shown with its supporting long-term trendline gradually coming into play to provide additional support. This is in fact the perfect setup for a major new uptrend to begin, and the only further supporting factor required is a favorable COT structure - and that we now have.

Gold and Silver Divergence vs Stock Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Rambus_Chartology

In this report I would like to look at some charts for the precious metals complex and some stock markets that have been moving opposite to each since the PM sector topped out in 2011.

PRECIOUS METALS

First lets look at a daily chart for gold that shows the bearish blue falling wedge that broke down about two weeks ago. Right now it's in the process of backtesting the bottom rail around the 1265 area, I also drew in a thin black dashed horizontal line under all the previous lows at 1280, which should also act as resistance if the bottom rail of the falling wedge gets strongly backtested. The all important 150 moving average comes in today at 1279.65. As you can see from the March high gold has been making lower lows and lower highs for the most part which constitutes a downtrend.

Negative Interest Rates Fail to Change Trend in Silver - MAP Wave Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Marc_Horn

I have found some time to update silver and gold, and last weeks negative interest rate announcement by the ECB managed no more than to affect the centi fractal wave scale, not even putting a blip on the deci wave scale! The downtrend continues and I am beyond words about the stupidity of the decision. WE ARE IN A DEFLATIONAY SPIRAL GLOBALLY and even though critics will argue. This is confirmation of information that we have all known for a long time, however if there is one thing guaranteed - politiicans will only act once it is too late - CRISIS MANAGEMENT! I suspect France was pushing hard, as the French economy is now officially even LESS PRODUCTIVE than Greece!

Crude Oil Price Turns Bearish / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Gregor_Horvat

Crude Oil has turned bearish recently, away from 104.00-104.50 resistance where we were looking for a wave (d) high. Notice that market turned nicely down, through the support channel line that confirms the bearish view for a three wave drop into wave (e) back to 100-101 area. Once those levels will be seen, we will turn bullish as big triangle since March could then be near completion. At the moment we see wave c) down in progress so triangle can already be in final stages.

Gold And Silver – Let “Dollar” Collapse Or Choose War. Elites Will Opt For War / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

The world has never been in a position like this before, where all global currencies are fiat and dependent upon central banker power. The push for a New World Order is inexorable, and make no mistake, the monied elites are fully in control, or almost so. We maintain this is why so many in the Precious Metals community have miscalculated the timing for when gold and silver would take off to the upside, collapsing the Fed's fiat "dollar," or as a result thereof.

Ukraine is truly the test where East meets West. It is the US-led coup that is a staging ground for an assault on Russia. Obama is leading the charge, once again, choosing the drums of war to get across the message that to challenge the supremacy of the "dollar" as the world's reserve currency, [as the ATM machine used by the elites to pillage the world's assets and remain in control], can have a serious outcome.

Bullish Record Gold and Silver Futures Shorting / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

The precious metals plunged last week, knifing through key support zones to unleash an explosion of bearish sentiment.  This troubling heavy selling wasn’t news-driven, it emerged out of the blue.  Who was dumping gold and why?  Later data confirmed it was American futures speculators short selling gold and silver at record levels.  Extreme shorting is very bullish, as these bets soon have to be covered.

The gold and silver price action has been exceedingly anomalous since early 2013.  That’s when the Federal Reserve fomented a melt-up in the general stock markets, through both monetizing debt and jawboning implying it was backstopping stock prices.  The levitating stock markets gradually sucked all life away from alternative investments including gold, which was crushed by epic selling of gold-ETF shares.

Crude Oil Prices, Opec And Other Peak Oil Stories / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

When In Doubt, Worry About Oil
One of the starkest oil worry pot pourri presentations – ruthlessly mingling fact, fiction and fantasy (but pretending its all fact) – can be had here http://energypolicy.columbia.edu...

Steve Kopits is the Managing Director of a known and still-in-business oil and energy forecasting firm, Douglas-Westwood. Both Kopits and D-W would appear to be (still) employable, but for how much longer we can only guess. The Kopits presentation is showcased by the Dublin sustainable economy and development firm FEASTA, with an even more ghastly presentation by David Knight called 'Peak Oil and Climate Change – Two Sides of the Same Coin?' FEASTA says that, as it perceives things,  Global Warming and Peak Oil are the two largest threats to the planet, human life and civilization.

Clarifying Asian Gold Strategy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The Russians came up with an extraordinary statement recently, central to why Russia and China are buying gold, the importance of which was missed by the media. President Putin said that “Russia and China need to secure their gold and foreign reserves.” He may have been overstepping the mark in making comments about China’s monetary policy, but he was unlikely to have done so without good reason. Furthermore it is impossible to secure foreign currency reserves, because they are at all times under the control of the issuing central banks. So what Putin was actually implying was that China and Russia need to secure their gold.

Gold in Near-Death Experience on Comex / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Well, it's a bit of an exaggeration, but for the first three days of this week daily turnover in the gold future fell to about 80,000 contracts, compared with a more normal level of 120,000. At the same time volatility fell to as close to zero as you can get. The week started with the gold price at $1241 and until yesterday at 1.00pm UK time stuck to a tight range of $7 centred on $1244. Open interest picked up a little, as shown in our first chart.

Gold Price Key Fundamental Driver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Barry Ritholtz is out with another article spelling more doom for the precious metals sector and the gold bugs. The self proclaimed “Gold Agnostic” penned a 2500 word missive in January which followed a blog post amid the spring 2013 collapse titled “What are Gold’s Fundamentals.” For the record, Ritholtz’s calls on the markets and Gold have been very good. He was bullish during most of the 2001-2011 advance and sold out prior to the 2013 breakdown. Give credit where credit is due. Yet, while the anti-gold and anti-gold bug mainstream eat up his gold analysis like a lap dog we have to mention some errors and a startling omission of Gold’s key driving force.

The Platinum Supply Shock / Commodities / Platinum

By: Peter_Schiff

Even investors who typically eschew precious metals have been hard-pressed to ignore the platinum industry this year. The longest strike in South African history paired with surging Asian demand is set to push the metal back into a physical deficit in 2014 - and could have repercussions for years to come. While gold remains the most conservative choice for saving, the "industrial precious metal" platinum is a compelling investment for those, like me, who are bullish on global net economic growth.
