Inside the White Hot Chinese Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jan_Skoyles

In the next part of our on-going look at the global gold market we now turn our attention to the Shanghai Gold Exchange. An exchange which has received more interest of late, than any other in the world of gold and silver.

Previously we have looked at the global gold market, COMEX, and more recently the London Gold Market. The next logical focus of our investigations is the Shanghai Gold Exchange. We also have a great infographic providing you with the top figures.

Crude Oil Myths and Why WTI Is a Short / Commodities / Crude Oil

The Cushing Myth

"Going along with 'drill, drill, drill' is now 'ship, ship, ship,' " said John Kilduff, energy analyst with Again Capital.” The bottleneck has been addressed in Cushing [Okla]. We're seeing those inventories plunge. We're seeing it from all the rail movement. It's having an impact, as are the pipeline reversals."

The Switch in Gold Offered Rates / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Dead for almost a decade, gold offered rates are suddenly headline news...

The Markets in physical gold and silver can look very odd places at first glance. The price drop this year has been so aggressive, it's only making them odder.

Take the market for gold lending, for instance. Few people understand the difference between leasing and forward swaps. Nor should they care, not as a rule. Even if you really haven't got anything better to worry about, the two forms of gold lending look very similar net-net.

Something's Got to Give in the Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

 

These are scary times for precious metal investors. Resource equities are in the tank and, adding insult to injury, the gold price took a precipitous fall just days before summer, notoriously one of the slowest seasons for precious metals. Heiko Ihle, an analyst with Euro Pacific Capital in Connecticut, tells The Gold Report that something has to give. And soon. Ihle sets out a likely scenario and highlights some miners that are able to produce profitably at current metals prices.

 

The Gold Report: Heiko, in late June gold had its biggest weekly drop in two years. What's your take on that?

Palladium Showing Great Relative Strength Versus Gold in 2013 / Commodities / Palladium

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Precious metals and oil (DBO) seem to have reversed higher last week on the military coup in Egypt. Bernanke is scheduled to speak and the markets may already be pricing in some dovish statement to alleviate fears of tapering which could cause some short covering and bargain hunting. Prices of platinum (PTM) and palladium (PALL) continue to outperform other metals such as gold (GLD), silver (SLV) and copper (JJC) over the past 9 months. For many months, I have been warning my readers about the growing risks to platinum and palladium supply as labor strikes intensify in South Africa.

Rising Borrowing Costs Nudge Gold Price Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE prices for gold rose 1.1% in Asian and London trade Wednesday morning, nearing yesterday's 1-week highs at $1260 per ounce as the rate for leasing and borrowing gold rose further.

Silver prices rose 1.8% from an overnight low at $19.05 per ounce.

Equity markets slipped while commodities rose with major government bond prices, nudging 10-year US Treasury yields further back from Monday's 2.73% – their highest level since August 2011.

Will Gold Prices Rise or Will the Bear Market Continue? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Money_Morning

Diane Alter writes: Will gold prices rise in 2013, or will the bear market continue in the second half of the year?

The bears have certainly been loud this year, as short-term bets against gold paid off in the first half of 2013. Gold lost 27% in Q1, the worst first-half performance since 1981.

Gold Market Structure - Little Red Riding Hood / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

We have not seen a market structure like this since the beginning of 2009. It appears to be tilted towards a significant trend change.

Although we have to remember that this structure is on the COMEX, which is becoming a market involved largely in the movement of paper, rather than a mechanism for the efficient discovery of price and the allocation of capital to resources.

What the Fundamentals Say about Gold Prices! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

We are expanding on the small piece we gave subscribers last week, where we took the gold market over the last two months and adjusted the Demand/Supply numbers in line with the fall in the gold price.

'Bear Raid' with SPDR Gold Sales

After all the fall in the gold price was hard and fast due entirely to the bear raid in the U.S. This started in mid-April after the sales from the SPDR gold ETF had begun more than a month ahead of that. The signal for the bear raid was given when Goldman Sachs issued a recommendation to their clients to go 'short' of gold. The fall was very dramatic and shook the gold world to its roots. The volumes of physical gold that were sold were enormous. Even the Central Bank Gold Agreement limitations on gold sales (when they occurred, pre-2009) were held at 4 - 500 tonnes a year. These sales took place over three months, with the 500 tonne bear raid happening in one week.

Crude Oil Trend Analysis / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Ed_Carlson

For several months I have been expecting a high in oil as of last Friday. A 34-month cycle (below) was my original suspicion for thinking so. But as you can see, the cycle calls for a high in June, not July. While the closing high in June has, as of last Friday, been exceeded, we won’t know where the closing high in July will be for three more weeks. Friday’s close at 103.22 is dead-on the 61.8% retracement of the 2008 bear market (as well as a declining trendline) giving us the perfect level at which to expect a possible top.

Why I’m Bullish on Gold Right Now / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Michael Lombardi writes: What we are seeing right now in the gold bullion market is unprecedented. The mainstream media continue to rail against gold as an investment, and prominent pundits have even declared that the precious metal will decline to $1,000 or even lower. But, in my opinion, it looks like these commentators are unable to see past the recent decline in prices.

Telegraphing the Turnaround in Gold Price / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

As of last Friday, gold has now fallen as much 35.4% (based on London PM fix prices) over 96 weeks. But if you're like us, you still recognize that the core reasons for investing in gold haven't changed. People who sold their gold recently made a shortsighted decision. Before too long precious metals will rebound—and probably in a big way.

The China Asian Giant Stampeding into Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Frank_Holmes

I recently discussed how traders were stampeding out of gold as a result of rising interest rates and the threat of evaporating monetary fluid that was lubricating markets. Hovering around $1,200 at the beginning of July, the gold price has completely disconnected from the precious metal's fundamentals, in my opinion. Prices have fallen too far out of fear, but the drivers for gold are still in place.
