All Eyes on Kenya: The Next Big Oil Exporter / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Not even the specter of a spillover of Islamic extremism from Somalia can dampen the atmosphere in Kenya, where commercial oil production is expected to begin in 2016 and discovery after discovery has made this the hottest and fastest-paced hydrocarbon scene on the continent. 

When it comes to new oil and gas frontiers, today it’s all about Africa. And more specifically, it’s all about the eastern coast, with Kenya the clear darling--not just because it’s outpacing neighboring Uganda by leaps and bounds, but also because despite some political instability hiccups and the threat of militant al-Shabaab, it’s still one of the safest venues in the region.

Gold And Silver Voodoo Analysis Price Forecasts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Austin_Galt

Both gold and silver have had an uncharacteristic and bad month. Gold and silver usually shine in the month of September. Not the case this year. Quite the opposite really!

And I have been no better predicting a rally in both metals. Market 1, myself 0. The markets can be quick to humble and I am certainly not immune. But one key to being successful in this game is being able to drag oneself up from the mat when the chips are down and soldier on. So it is with a clear head and renewed focus that I present where the technicals currently stand as I see them.

GOLD Bewitching Hour of a Triple Bottom is Upon Us / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Bob_Kirtley

Background
The last time gold sparkled was in the summer of 2011 when an all-time record of $1900/oz was achieved. Alas since then it has been a torturous journey as gold prices has trekked south arriving at today’s price of $1216/oz, registering a loss of 36%. However, for the year to date gold is still trading above its low of $1180/oz as it grimly hangs on to a modest gain of 3%. The question we face now surrounds gold’s direction; will it test the previous low of $1180/oz and bounce to higher levels or will it penetrate this support level and set the stage for sub $1000/oz gold prices.

How Falling Oil Prices Could Trigger an "Unpredictable and Dangerous Mess" / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: The dive in crude oil prices continued yesterday as yet another selloff targeted the energy sector for a particularly big hit.

Of course, this too shall pass.

The crude oil markets are oversold and a rebalancing will bring prices back up a bit over the near term.

Silver, Gold, Debt and Taxes / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

I’m convinced – we can’t escape debt and taxes.  Essentially all currency is created as debt, and our financial system creates more debt and more currency into circulation every day.  Taxes are insufficient to pay the massive expenditures that our politicians deem essential, so our national, state and local governments fall deeper into debt every year.  I think we can all agree – expect more debt and more taxes.

Can Gold Act as a Safe Haven Again? / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

PI Financial mining analyst Christos Doulis says six years ago when the financial crisis was in full swing, safe-haven buying made gold skyrocket. Today, the fear component is down, as is the price of gold. That is why Doulis believes investors need to own bulletproof, low-cost names that can survive this environment. In this interview with The Gold Report, Doulis discusses some M&A possibilities and points to management teams getting the most out of their low-cost precious metals assets.

China Moves To Dominate Gold Market With Physical Exchange / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: GoldCore

Shanghai Gold Exchange International Board

China is slowly moving to dominate the global gold market and it is important to join the dots regarding a few key recent developments in China relating to gold.

When the International Board of the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) was launched last Thursday September 18 during an evening trading session, it was notable that the first transactions were put through by a diverse group comprising HSBC, MKS (Switzerland), and the Chinese banks,  ICBC, Bank of China and Bank of Communications.

Gold And Silver - Current Price Is The Story / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

Forget all the news, all the fundamentals, all the [mostly errant] price projections. There is a reason why a picture is worth more than 1,000 words, and this is one of those times where it is best to focus on pictures of the market, over various time frames, to get a better handle on what to expect moving forward. Put to rest every so-called PMs pundit or blogger that has persistently been calling for higher prices or saying the low is in.

We keep saying that the best and most reliable indicators come from the market. Time to stop listening about what others have been saying about the market and pay closer attention to what the market is saying about others. Several months ago, we expressed the thought that 2014 would likely be more like 2013 and to not expect a dramatic increase in gold and silver prices. Even that was optimistic as silver just reached recent 4 year lows.

Russian Sanctions 'Putin' Pressure On Uranium Supply / Commodities / Uranium

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Summary

  1. Spot uranium price rebounding strong over the past few weeks, rallying more than $3 per lb or more than 10% in a short timespan.
  2. End users such as the nuclear utilities with deep pockets need safe and secure long term supplies from stabile jurisdictions.
  3. Recent sanctions with Russia could already be putting pressure on uranium supply. Europe and the U.S. relied on cheap uranium from Russia for decades.
  4. What happens when the cheap uranium runs out? Look for off take agreements, M&A and strategic equity investments in junior uranium miners.
  5. Sanctions on Russia and Putin could be putting pressure on the supply side of uranium.

Cheap Gold Stocks Upleg Intact / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold stocks have plunged in September, crushed by the withering selling pressure from heavy futures shorting hammering gold.  As usual, these falling prices have kindled extreme bearishness on this left-for-dead sector.  But despite this rotten sentiment, gold stocks’ young upleg remains very much intact technically.  This impressive resiliency is fueled by these miners’ incredibly-cheap fundamental valuations.

Gold stocks are without a doubt the most despised sector in all the stock markets.  Thanks to the Fed’s brazen debt monetizations and manipulations of interest rates, the global markets are distorted beyond belief.  Stock markets have soared to extreme valuations on the Fed’s implied backstopping, leading to epic complacency, greed, and hubris.  That artificial levitation sucked vast capital out of alternative investments.

The London Gold Pool - 1961 to 1968 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Of course the Gold Price is manipulated, that's the point!

By the beginning of the 1960s, the U.S.$ 35 = 1 oz. Gold price was becoming more and more difficult to sustain. Gold demand was rising and U.S. Gold reserves were falling, both as a result of the ever increasing trade deficits which the U.S. continued to run with the rest of the world.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

The silver market is always one day from panic. The same could be said for the bond market or the dollar. In the age of electronic price discovery and massive reckless monetary Imbalance anything can happen - and it probably will.

Another Miserable Week for Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Gold and silver drifted lower over the course of the week, with a challenge to the $1200 level for gold becoming a distinct possibility. Silver is struggling to hold $18.50. Mainstream opinion has been negative for commodities generally, with a strong dollar undermining them. Brent crude, for example, is now well under $100.

Bird's Eye View of the Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Since last summer, investing in the mining sector has been akin to riding a mini roller coaster. There have been two huge rallies, two sudden and sharp declines while more than a handful of individual stocks have rebounded over 200% from their lows. Nevertheless, as we noted a few weeks ago the weakness of the metals won out and are dictating the terms. Since we covered the metals in our last missive we wanted to focus soley on the miners. A look at the bear market analog chart as well as a very long-term chart of GDM illustrates the coming risks and opportunities.

Silver Price at Critical Juncture / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Austin_Galt

Silver has just kept tanking and tanking over the last couple of months. And taking my silver longs with it. It's been painful stuff. That will teach me to trade against the trend. It's certainly a different picture to all the hooting and hollering of the bulls back in June.

Silver is now back to just above its major yearly low of US$18.17 set in 2013. I often remark how the market likes to take things to the extreme and once again we have a clear case of that here. So, we are now at a critical juncture. If price were to break to new yearly lows now then price would likely capitulate. I just do not see this happening. Let's investigate.

Silver - Almost Time to Backup the Truck and Load up / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

The following is a plausible forecast / prediction

Despite my known disdain for time and price predictions, I base the plausible forecast for an October 2014 generational low in the dollar-denominated value of Silver upon the cyclical duration of a prior elongated bear market that occurred from May 1968 thru November 1971.
