Are Gold Investors Finally Capitulating? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: John_Rubino

Sprott Asset Management’s Rick Rule is one of the smartest guys in the resource investing world — and one of the most reasonable — which has made his interviews of the past few years a little disconcerting. Along with the obligatory positive thoughts on the long-term value of gold and silver and the resulting bright future for the best precious metals miners, he always points out that the sector hasn’t yet endured a capitulation, where everyone just gives up and sells at any price, tanking prices and setting the stage for the next bull market.

Gold Price Just a Little Bit More / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Bob_Loukas

Back in May, I sent followers of this public blog a Gold Cycle Update, outlining how gold had a 75% chance of failing to rally, resulting in an unexpected downturn. And then 3 weeks later, I sent a follow up article (Approach An Endpoint), where I outlined how gold was heading for a major Investor Cycle failure below $1,136. As was predicted, the Gold sector was hammered this past week, with new lows being achieved in every nook and cranny of the precious metals complex. Silver and platinum crossed that threshold weeks ago, but for the Miners and for Gold itself, Friday's high volume decline pushed them to new, multi-year lows. The Miners are especially concerning. Gold's decline has been tame by normal standards, but the Miners are back at the depths of the 2008 plunge, having completely erased the gains of the last Cyclical bull market.

Gold Investors Opportunity to Potentially Double Their Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Rarely does childish selling of the Street and massive forced selling in China give Gold investors an opportunity to potentially double their money. That is what it may be happening at this very time in Gold and Silver markets. Now may be time to sell all exposure to the Lofty Lunacy, those internet / technology / growth / biotechnology fantasy stocks, your first born male child, your home, your dog, and whatever to add Gold and Silver to your portfolio. Last time the Street was as bearish on $Gold was 2007 when the price closed out the year at $830. $Gold went on to more than double.

Let's Talk About Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Gary_Tanashian

For what seems like forever we have been mechanical in managing the precious metals because they have been bearish; period. This has been based on short and long-term technical indications and incomplete macro fundamentals. Gary the robot has had no difficulty whatsoever holding this stance despite Gary the human's unwavering view that the value of gold is in its insurance and long-term retained value qualities.

Are the Production or Consumption Drivers of the Gold Price? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

There are many opinions about what factors drive the price of gold. Among the candidates you will find: inflation rates, U.S. dollar exchange rate, real interest rate, geopolitics, oil prices, market volatility and crises, mine production, jewelry demand, speculation, technological demand, central banks’ actions, manipulation, and investment demand. We will deal with them in this and the following editions of the gold Market Overview. We will begin by rejecting production and consumption. It does mean that they do not affect the gold price; however we are interested in factors which drive the gold price.

Retail Silver Premiums - The Candle Blowing in the Wind / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Despite the continued technical, paper induced bias to the downside, recent news that the US Mint has stopped silver eagle production is once again is being singled as the likely cause for the premium surges now being observed across all physical silver retail products. 

Is this true physical demand bleeding through the paper charade? 

The bullion retail trade is a thin margin business to begin with.

Gold And Silver – Without Either, You Will Be Greeced / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

Step back for a moment and absorb what just transpired in the ongoing Greek tragedy that refuses to go away.  Greece, with no possibility of ever repaying its fictitious debts to the EU, and the EU, in all of its greed and avarice, for no wisdom is to be found within that body of elite-pushing bureaucrats, it determined that the best and ONLY solution for debt-laden Greece was to LOAN MORE “MONEY.”

Need anything more be said about what is going on in European politics?

Gold and Silver Record Shorting / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

The miserable summer for precious metals grinds on, with both gold and silver limping along near major lows.  Such dismal price action has exacerbated the extreme bearishness long plaguing this sector, sparking even more capitulation.  But this incredible weakness will be short-lived, as it was driven by American futures speculators’ record short selling.  That will soon reverse into guaranteed, proportional buying.

In all markets including precious metals, price is rightfully considered the most-important fundamental signal.  Prevailing price levels are set by free-market buying and selling until supply and demand meet.  And gold and silver prices are exceptionally weak, with these despised precious metals slumping down to challenge major new 5.2-year and 5.4-year lows this week.  So their fundamentals must be bearish, right?

Gold and Silver Extremes Become More Extreme Weekly / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Gold and silver continued to drift lower over the course of the week, with gold trading at $1,145 and silver at $15.02 in early European trade this morning. This is close to the lowest prices we have seen since 2010. At the same time equities have rallied strongly and the S&P 500 Index is within a whisker of its all-time high.

Where is Support for Precious Metals Markets? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

The gold miners have broken below their 2008 to 2014 support while Silver is essentially trading at a six year low. Gold looks set to make a new monthly low and weekly low but has yet to break its daily low at $1140/oz. Barring a sudden short squeeze Gold could be hours or days away from cracking in the way Silver and the miners have in recent weeks. The trend for the sector is obviously down and sentiment is following. However, the more important issue for long term bulls is where is the strong support for these markets.

Greek Vote: The Three Energy Aftershocks You Need to Know Now / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Dr. Kent Moors writes: In the small hours of the morning, Athens time, the Greek parliament passed a tough set of reforms as the price for another European bailout. The aftershocks of this will be felt throughout the energy sector.

However, even this tough pill is not likely to be enough. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) reported on Monday that Greece may not pull through without an absolute reduction in the debt owed. Germany has already bristled over the prospect of a creditor “haircut” and the prospects of another round of negotiations has everybody fit to be tied on both sides of the conversation.

Gold and Hit Again - Pervasive Nonsense / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jesse

Gold and silver we hit again today, but silver managed to hang on to its 15 handle, and gold bounced back to 1050.

I suspect that this was the usual sort of antics we see whenever some Fed head appears before the Congress for some 'confidence building.'

Gold and silver are now both short term oversold, and at some key support areas.

Credit Deflation and Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Alasdair_Macleod

There is a common view in financial markets that credit deflation is bad for gold prices, because gold nowadays is regarded as an asset to be sold in the scramble for cash when people are forced to pay down their debts. When asked by Congressman Ron Paul his opinion on gold four years ago, Ben Bernanke replied it was not money, just another asset, appearing to confirm this view.

The Multi-Trillion Dollar Oil Market Swindle / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

In the past, I documented the overstatements by both the IEA and EIA in 2014 & 2015 in terms of supply, inventory and understatements of demand. Others also noticed these distortions and, whether intentional or not, they exist and they are very large in dollar terms. These distortions, which are affecting price through media hype and/or direct/indirect price manipulation, are quite possibly the largest in financial history.

Here’s the Next Big Source of Energy Profits / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Dr. Kent Moors writes: Not long ago, the idea of disconnecting from the electrical grid and opting to live a “self-powered” life was limited to either “survivalists” or the realm of science fiction.

That’s beginning to change.

Back in 1973, the English economist E. F. Schumacher published Small Is Beautiful. The idea of the best-seller was to treat economics “as if people mattered.” The best way to do that, Schumacher posited, was by bringing the main elements of people’s lives closer to where they lived (remember, this was at the peak of the 1973 oil crisis). Basic human needs and well-being should be prized above materialism and the “bigger is better” mentality.
