Gold Price Trying to Build Base / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The GOLD PRICE fell $10 per ounce after reaching almost $1400 for the 5th time this week in London trade Friday morning.

Silver held tight around $22.50 per ounce, managing only one-third of gold's 2.0% gain for the week.

After yesterday's 7% plunge Japan's stock market bounced, but other Asian equities fell, as did European stocks.

Silver Mining, Sentiment and the Confidence Game / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In terms of silver’s investment demand, the bullish metric at Sentimenttrader.com is currently at 39 percent. This is a low point that has not been seen since the mid-1990's.

Furthermore, The Hulbert Gold Stock Newsletter Index or HGNSI recently fell to a new low of 43.8 percent, which is a record by a longshot. What that low reading indicates is that, of the stock newsletters that include coverage of mining stocks, 43.8 percent of them are now recommending short positions in gold stocks.

Platinum and Palladium: A Fundamental Shift / Commodities / Platinum

By: Jeff_Clark

Platinum is a precious metal, as is palladium, though to a lesser degree. However, like silver, both are also industrial metals. Unlike silver, it's their industrial use that is the primary price driver for both platinum and palladium – and that use is undergoing a fundamental shift.

The largest source of demand for platinum and palladium is the automotive industry, for use in autocatalysts. In turn, the fortunes of the auto industry are sensitive to the health of the world's major economies. We've been bearish on platinum-group metals for years, primarily because we weren't convinced a healthy – much less roaring – world economy could be sustained when so many governments continue spending beyond their means.

Robert Prechter's Big 5 Gold Warnings for Bulls and Bears / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: EWI

Dear Trader,

Volatile price action is a surprise to most investors most of the time.

That's definitely true of precious metals in the past 30 days. But, the real story is far bigger than just one month. In fact, gold and silver have seen declines of more than 30% and 50%, respectively, since 2011. Now that's news!

Gold Bugs Army - Dollar Indices Pricing Research Rubbish? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Investors rely on indices to help understand how a market is moving, and perhaps even how it might move in the future. Technical analysis of a market, for example, is only possible due to market indices. How else would we assess what might be happening in a market? If an index is not properly constructed, that whole effort may prove fruitless.

Gold Bullion Rallies Despite "Losing US Fed Prop" as Stock Markets Sink / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

BOTH gold and silver rose in Asian and London trade Thursday morning, defying a sharp slide in global stock markets to gain 3.0% rally from yesterday's sharp sell-off.

Commodity prices fell as major government bonds rose but weaker Eurozone debt slipped, pushing interest rates higher.

Tokyo's Nikkei index – up by 85% from November – dumped more than 7% after new data showed a surprise contraction in China's manufacturing sector.

Are Gold Prices Near a Bottom? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Money_Morning

Diane Alter writes: It's been a tumultuous couple of months for the yellow metal, which has investors asking: Are gold prices near a bottom?

There's hope this price plunge is ending.

Year-to-date, gold is lower by 17%. But after seven trading sessions where gold prices slumped, on Monday June gold futures gained 1.4%, or $19.40, to $1,384.10. Contract prices bounced as much as 2.4% after sliding 2.1%.

Unveiling the Gold Market’s Working Parts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jan_Skoyles

Why this happened is something which is open to much analysis and theorising. For the mainstream media it was down to an improving global economy and the need to hold gold no longer existed, for those in the world of gold investment this was perhaps down to more of the politics behind the gold-market than the economics.

On April 12th 3.4 million ounces (100 tonnes) of gold was sold in the US futures markets. This was just for starters, the main, side and dessert appeared over the following hours and the next session on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (COMEX).

Silver Price Plunge Looks Set to Continue to $18.00 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

As far as we can ascertain the demand for physical silver is alive and well with reports of people queuing to buy it while a number of suppliers, including the mints have been selling all that they could produce of the popular coins and bars. And yet the price of silver falls in the paper market which highlights the disparity between the physical and paper markets.

Bullish on Silver, Gold and Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Sprott Silver Equities Class Co-Manager Maria Smirnova understands the power of leverage. She has seen the big impact even a slight increase in the silver price can have on silver producers. Every cent is multiplied and goes right to the investor's bottom line, giving the equities more upside than possible in a coin. That is why Eric Sprott increased holdings of silver equities in certain Sprott funds. Smirnova discusses five of these companies in this interview with The Gold Report.

 

The Gold Report: Maria, in April Eric Sprott sold more than $45 million ($45M) worth of units in the Sprott Silver Physical Trust. A spokesperson told Canada'sGlobe and Mail that the sale was needed to cover charitable obligations and to buy shares in silver mining companies because Mr. Sprott believes silver equities will outperform the metal in the next rally. Can you fill in the details on that thesis?

The Macro Economic Story as Told by Gold, Copper and Oil / Commodities / Global Economy

By: EconMatters

Gold’s been on a wild ride. After reaching a peak of $1,920 an ounce in September 2011, gold has tumbled 28% to the current ~$1,380 level forcing John Paulson to take a 47% loss in his gold fund during the first four months of this year, according to Bloomberg.

Unlike Paulson who maintained his positions in gold, other big players like George Soros and BlackRock cut their gold ETF holdings, while Goldman Sachs issued a sell recommendation on gold right before the yellow metal plunged 13% through April 15, the biggest drop in three decades. And by looking at the futures curve (chart below), market does not seem to expect gold to come back roaring any time soon.

Crude Oil Price Manipulation Awakens Libor, Enron Ghosts / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: Last July, we warned you that oil prices could potentially be manipulated in similar fashion to the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor), and now a recent raid of major oil companies highlights this growing danger to the $3.4 trillion-a-year crude market.

The European Commission last week stormed the offices of Royal Dutch Shell PLC (NYSE ADR: RDS.A, RDS.B), BP PLC ( NYSE ADR: BP), and Statoil ASA (NYSE ADR: STO) as part of the ongoing investigation to find out whether companies are manipulating oil prices and, if so, how long it has been going on and the possible ramifications.

Mining Deep for Gold: Part II / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

In my February 15, 2013, Mining Deep for Gold, I concluded by writing “I suspect far greater losses are in store for gold before a bottom is seen.” Since that commentary gold has lost another $250/oz. The question in the minds of many today must be ‘when will this decline end?’

Gold Stocks Investors Its Time To Be BRAVE! / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: David_Banister

I used to half joke with some of my investing friends that the best time to buy stocks is during or right after a crash.  Think 1987, 2000-2002, 2008-09, and now perhaps Gold Miners?? Well, before we get too far ahead of ourselves, lets examine evidence of a “Crash”: I like to use crowd behavioral, empirical, and technical evidence in combination.
