Who Says Gold Is Money? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Who is right? Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger and many more say you shouldn’t own gold. Ray Dalio, David Einhorn, Jim Rogers, John Paulson, George Soros, and I (among many others) own some gold—but that doesn’t mean you should own it.

Disappointing Gold Price Hits 3-Month Low on U.S. Debt Limit / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The WHOLESALE price of gold bounced hard Tuesday lunchtime in London from new 3-month lows, regaining $10 per ounce from $1255 as European shares rose but US stock futures pointed lower.

The Dollar rose, knocking almost 1 cent off the Euro, as word spread of an apparent US political deal to avert technical default at the debt limit's deadline on Thursday.

Gold and Silver Through the Looking Glass / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

"A rogue does not laugh in the same way that an honest man does; a hypocrite does not shed the tears of a man of good faith. All falsehood is a mask; and however well made the mask may be, with a little attention we may always succeed in distinguishing it from the true face." Alexandre Dumas

It was capping all the way today as stocks rallied back from overnight lows to close on the highs, while gold and silver were pushed down and went out near the lows.

Crude Oil Price Change of Trend or Just a Correction? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

The previous week was quite hard for the oil bulls. Light crude lost almost 2% and slipped to its lowest level since July 3. When we take a closer look at the chart of crude oil we clearly see that the price of light crude remains in the narrow range between $100 and $104 per barrel. Since the beginning of the month oil bulls and bears have pushed it above or below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level, however, neither the buyers nor the sellers have had enough strength to win and trigger another bigger move.

QE Tapering and Natural Resource Myths / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Casey_Research

The Gold Report: Why is the theory of tapering or turning quantitative easing (QE) off a myth, and who really benefits from QE?

Rick Rule: My view—as an investor, not an economist—is that QE is misnamed. I think it's another way of saying counterfeiting. It exists in large measure because we're running a trillion-dollar deficit and, while we can hoodwink investors into funding two-thirds of it, we need to print away the last third.

Gold - Goldman Sachs Strikes Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clif_Droke

Call it the revenge of the gold bears. Jeffrey Currie, the Goldman Sachs chief commodity analyst whose name inspires dread on all gold bugs who hear it, has made yet another bearish prediction for the gold price.

Last week Mr. Currie stated that gold is a "slam dunk" sell because of his expectation that the U.S. economy will extend its recovery after Congress extends the debt ceiling. The price of gold, as if on cue, promptly declined after Currie's remarks were widely published and it appears that gold is indeed poised for another leg down.

Why Peak Oil Was Wrong, Is US Economic Growth Over? / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: John_Mauldin

After last week's discussion of the Affordable Care Act, it would be easy to drift off into all of the negative consequences of the current problems in Washington DC. There's just so much negative energy every time you turn on the TV that it simply drains you. I am well aware of what's happening and why, and yet I still find myself weary simply from the process of trying to follow what's happening. If I feel that way, it's no wonder the polls show that the general public's attitude is "a plague on all your houses." Of course, the snafus always seem to get resolved, but you just wonder how worthwhile all the drama is.

Gold and Silver - Western Bankers [Forced] Bowing To China / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

On Friday morning, gold trading was shut down for 10 seconds in a "stop logic" event, as the CME explains. In essence, when there is an overload of orders that cleans out stops, the market halts, [10 seconds???] "designed to prevent exaggerated price movements." In a sorry-ass explanation that defies common sense, except to protect the criminal exchange behavior, we give this CME propaganda no further consideration.

Gold and America's Fake Debt Default / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Gold just isn't working as advertised as Washington flirts with disaster...

There's no denying that precious metals are falling even as the US debt-limit deadline draws so near, you can see that it's wearing a wig.

In fact, the mere hint of a short-term fix to avoid default next Thursday knocked gold prices below $1300 this week, with a further plunge as US trade opened on Friday.

Gold Stocks Have Never Been As Cheap as Right Now / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold stocks continue to be universally despised, plagued by extreme bearishness.  This has hammered their stock prices to epically-undervalued levels that are truly fundamentally absurd.  This whole sector is now trading as if the gold price was less than a third of current levels!  This massive disconnect has created vast opportunities for brave contrarians who have forged the mettle to buy low when few others will.

For literally thousands of years around the entire planet, gold has been an indispensable asset.  It has been Tolkien’s One Ring of money, ruling over all national currencies ever created.  It has been essential for wealth preservation and portfolio diversification, not to mention inflation protection and capital gains.  The natural human lust for gold has dramatically reshaped world history, there is simply nothing else like it.

U.S. Gold and Debt Ceiling - Here We Go Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Since the U.S. shutdown began last week gold has been trading in a tight range between $1,277 and $1,330 per ounce. Although investors have believed that worries over the debt ceiling would be only short-lived, it seems that each day that passed without an agreement tested their nerves.

On Thursday, President Barack Obama agreed to consider a proposal from Republican lawmakers to avert a historic debt default. U.S. House of Representatives Republicans plan to offer President Barack Obama a short-term increase in the federal debt limit if he agrees to negotiate with Republicans on matters, including funding to reopen the government.

Long Gold, Short Silver And Exponential Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Each day more conspiracy theories are becoming conspiracy fact. From Enron to Madoff, the NSA to LIBOR, these scandals were "known" years before being acknowledged or embraced by officials or the mainstream media.

What remains unknown is the distortion this "new reality" will have on behavior and ultimately, the market and nowhere has the distortion been allowed to continue for as long as that associated with the Precious Metals.

The UK Fuddles Its Way To Energy Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Andrew_McKillop

THE US PREFERS DEBT CRISIS
For people outside the US its easy to laugh at America’s political system, which is once again showing itself to be hopelessly defective as it trundles the nation towards a possible default on its debt – about a half of which is held by non-Americans. In a development oozing geopolitical significance, China and Japan, America’s top creditors, have already made their stress and displeasure known in no uncertain terms. In the case of Japan, it was forced to step in and offer to pay for the US removal of its Okinawa base dating from World War II, because the US can't afford to remove it. China and other countries including Australia have warned they will increasingly not use dollars in their foreign trade.

The Calm Before the Gold and Silver Precious Metals Storm / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Steve_St_Angelo

The financial hurricane hit the world in 2008 destroying huge swaths of assets, real estate valuations, numerous banks and financial institutions.  As the storm cleared, the Fed and central banks stepped in by flooding the world with money to supposedly assist in dealing with the damage while providing special programs to rid the banks of debris and garbage clogging up their businesses.

After trillions of dollars of so-called monetary assistance, the financial damage appears to be repaired giving the public a false sense of security that the storm has finally passed.  Unfortunately, the world has only dealt with the first part of the storm and is now sitting in the eye of the financial cyclone.

Crude Oil Price Volatility on the Way? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Submissions

Tom Therramus writes: In a previous Oil-Price.net articles published in 2010 and 2011 , I discussed predictive relationships that appear to occur between large, rapid swings in oil price and recessions, stock market crashes and shifts in political polls. Given the economic disruptions that nearly always happen in the aftermath of oil shocks, it seems important to understand what is behind the timing of transient instabilities in the oil markets.

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

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

It may be in the reader's mind that somehow all gold markets come together at some point and an exact representation of demand and supply is given by the gold price. The reality is that most markets are entirely separate from each other and reflect the buying and selling in that individual market only.

These markets are only joined by the 'arbitrage' activity, usually only by the professionals in the market -- banks mainly -- who can both electronically and physically move gold from one market to another.

WHOLESALE PRICES in Asia and London for physical gold slipped again Thursday morning, dipping back below $1300 per ounce as politicians in Washington mulled a short-term fix to avoid the $17 trillion debt ceiling triggering a government default in one week's time.

Silver also eased back, trading below $22 per ounce, as world stock markets rose and major government bonds slipped, nudging 10-year US Treasury yields up to 2.70%.
