Gold And Silver Central Bank Death Dance / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

If “they” can get you to ask the wrong questions[s], “they” do not have to worry about giving the right answer[s].

The question most have been asking is, why aren’t the prices of gold and silver reflecting the unprecedented huge demand and the almost depleted holdings of the exchanges and central banks? Article after article has been retelling the stories of long lines to buy silver and gold, all over the world, Russia and China buying everything available for sale from the gutless Western central bankers, failure to deliver physical gold by banks to customers, failure to deliver contract gold on the COMEX, rolling it forward and/or settling for cash for those who take it.

Gold and Silver Bottoming Process / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

In our last editorial we pointed out how the gold stocks had veered off the recovery course. They fell well below the recovery template and fell below their 50-day moving averages. Furthermore, the positive “non-taper” news turned out to be the mother of all bull traps for traders. The market soared on presumably an epic amount of short covering. Yet that only served to be a selling opportunity for traders. That sequence of events only strengthened our view that the sector continues to be headed for a retest which could serve as the mother of all buying opportunities.

Gold Markets Are Not Efficient, Don't Reflect Fundamentals and Understate Gold's Market Value / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

This is a series on how and why the gold markets fail to reflect the true balance of demand and supply in gold and silver prices. Many investors expect and believe that the gold price is an accurate reflection of demand and supply, but it isn't.

In a perfect market the exact weight of demand and supply on a daily basis would be reflected in the daily prices. In both gold and silver markets this is just not true. Many of these factors are common to all markets, but in the gold market the different factors on a broad front are wider and more complex than most. The extent of market liquidity is a key factor in the efficiency of markets so we need to know just how responsive to prices is the liquidity of the gold market.

U.S. Dollar and Non USD Gold Price Current Situation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

In the previous week the Fed surprised markets when it decided to stick with its massive stimulus measures. However, in the following days some officials said that the U.S. central bank could still begin tapering later this year. Since then, markets are no clearer on when the Fed will eventually taper its stimulus.

From today’s point of view, it seems that this uncertainty over tapering has kept the price of gold in its narrowest range since the June bottom. Since the August low the yellow metal has been trading between $1,271 and $1,434.

Coal the Most Unlikely Beneficiary of the Natural Gas Boom / Commodities / Coal

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: An array of energy's sub-industries are making a fortune from America's natural gas boom.

Rigs, pipelines, rail, wastewater treatment, trucking, seismic imaging, well-site security... And a lot more opportunity is on the way, like the deal Kent just uncovered.

But perhaps the most unlikely beneficiary of the shale revolution is the coal industry.

The Evolution of the Gold and Silver IRA / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Precious metals currently look like a no brainer investment in a world of market volatility, rehypothecation, massive bail ins and outs, and a growing number of templates for taking people’s retirement assets away.

Many are familiar with the option of keeping precious metals in an IRA. Those who understandably refuse to take the penalty for cashing out in order to take full personal possession have the next best option and a way to get control of their metal.

Will Russia Lose Its Crude Oil Grip on Europe? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Marin_Katusa

Vladimir Putin is on a roll. Ever since the Russian president-turned-prime-minister-turned-president got into office 13 years ago, he's been deftly maneuvering Russia back into the ranks of global heavyweights. These days, he's averting cruise missiles from Syria before breakfast.

For a strategy to return Russia to superpower status, Putin had to look no farther than his own doctoral thesis, Mineral Natural Resources in the Development Strategy for the Russian Economy.

Gold and Silver Driven by US Debt Limit as 3-Week Countdown Begins / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The WHOLESALE price of gold and other precious metals touched 4-session highs Thursday morning in London, after US Treasury secretary Jack Lew warned yesterday that the government will run out of money in just 3 weeks' time if Congress doesn't approve new debt.

World stock markets ticked lower with major government bonds as the US Dollar rose on the FX market.

Nuclear Power - The Energy Sector’s Biggest Threat and Opportunity / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Investment_U

David Fessler writes: On July 6, 2013, Ralph Seidensticker quietly passed away in his home in Valencia, Calif. He was 81 years old.

If you ask 1,000 people who he was, it’s doubtful that more than one or two would know. Seidensticker was the pioneer in nuclear reactor design. He spent 58 years designing reactors for nuclear power plants as an Argonne National Laboratory engineer. Many of the 104 plants in use in the U.S. today use his design features.

How One Man Took China’s Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jan_Skoyles

Jan Skoyles writes: The story of China and their obsession with gold has been revived this year as monthly data shows the phenomenal volumes imported through Hong Kong and being traded on the Shanghai Gold Exchange.

However, given how much we gold commentators report on China’s inherent love for gold, it’s surprising that very few realise that less than one-hundred years ago the country lost thousands of years’ worth of reserves.

Fives Tonnes of Customer Gold Leave the HSBC Vault / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

On Monday 173,582 ounces, or roughly five tonnes, of customer gold was withdrawn the HSBC warehouse.

This takes the total gold in all of the COMEX warehouses to a new low of 6,860,160 ounces in 100 oz. bars.

The portion of this that is deliverable or 'dealer gold' remains at 672,000 ounces.

Gold and Oil: Which Has a Better Upside Potential? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Nadia_Simmons

Last week, after the Fed said it would stick to its stimulus plan for now, the yellow metal gained more than 4%, leading the rally in commodities, and rose to a new one-week high. At the same time crude oil extended earlier increases and finally gained over 2% on Wednesday. However, during this euphoric rally, investors overlooked that it was fueled by a weaker economic outlook from the Fed. Therefore, the improvement didn't last long and we saw a quick profit-taking during the last two sessions of the week. In this way, gold gave back almost 60% of the previous sessions' gains and dropped to $1,325 an ounce on Friday. What's interesting, at the same time light crude has declined sharply, erased all September's gains and reached a new week low.

Fifty Shades of Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

Goldman Sachs created a stir recently when it forecasted that gold would fall to $1,000 an ounce by the end of 2014, as the firm expected the Federal Reserve to reduce its bond buying program. Goldman also suggested that gold miners might want to hedge their output, locking in 2013 prices.

Chinese Housewives vs. Goldman Sachs Gold Price Forecast Drop to $1050 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

Goldman Sachs is once again predicting that gold will fall, setting a new near-term target of $1,050.

Never mind the schizophrenic gene that would be required to follow the constantly fluctuating predictions of all these big banks; it's amazing to me that anyone continues to listen to them after their abysmal record and long-standing anti-gold stance.
