New World Currency Backed By Gold or Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Chris_Vermeulen

History has proven that 100% of fiat currencies have failed the test of time. The average life span of a fiat currency is 40-50 years. With the US dollar now in it’s 44th year it makes you wonder if the end of the greenback is near.

The only money that has held the test of time has been asset-backed currencies using gold. Or through owning gold and silver bullion.

This Innovation Will Help U.S. Companies Win The Oil Price War / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: OilPrice_Com

Although some US oil companies are struggling with low oil prices, a new wave of innovation is hitting the oil patch, allowing for a significant reduction in drilling costs.

A variety of different improvements in production are starting to show up at all levels across the industry from small firms to oil majors. Statoil for example recently noted that it is experimenting with different types of sand and chemicals to improve production. And a number of companies have noted that they are moving from drilling wells one at a time, on an ad hoc basis, to drilling multiple wells at once. GE Oil & Gas has produced variable-use pumps that can be turned on and off in order to save energy versus the previous 24-hour a day operation cycle.

The US Dollar and the Precious Metals Complex / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

The first chart I would like to show you today is the long term monthly chart for the US Dollar I showed you a week or two ago. It was coming into contact with the top rail of a massive 30 year falling wedge at 93.50. I also drew in a neckline extension rail taken from the H&S top that formed back in 2000 which came in at 92. I put the little brown box to show you where I was hoping to find support. So far the top rail is doing its thing by reversing its role to what had been resistance to now support once it was broken to the upside. This is a critical test taking place right here which so far the US dollar bulls are winning.

Gold GLD ETF Drawdown Continues Unabated / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

The giant gold ETF, GLD, reported yet another drawdown in its holdings this afternoon. This time around it was a 3 tons reduction bringing the total holdings to 715.26 tons. That is now up a mere 6.24 tons since the start of the year levels, a far cry from its peak in February of a 64 ton increase on the year.

There is no way to spin this to make it the least bit friendly for the cause of gold.

Are US Shale Oil Drillers Actually Making A Comeback? / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: OilPrice_Com

Oil prices have rebounded strongly since March. The benchmark WTI prices soared by more than 36 percent in two months, and Brent has jumped by more than 25 percent. There is a newfound bullishness in the oil markets – net long positions on Brent crude have hit multi-year highs in recent weeks on a belief that US supply is on its way down.

Three Hidden Forces Pushing Crude Oil Price Back Up / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Dr. Kent Moors writes: The overall trajectory for oil prices remains upward, despite taking a breather today. I still see prices reaching $65-68 for West Texas Intermediate (WTI, the benchmark traded on the NYMEX) and $73-78 for Dated Brent (the other major benchmark set daily in London).

But this is hardly going to be a straight, linear rise. Rather, it’s going to occur in what I call a “ratcheting” pattern: occasionally jerking downward along the way.

Now Is the Time to Own the Oil & Gas Leaders / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: The_Energy_Report

U.S. shale oil producers have responded to the oil price collapse so quickly, and with such discipline, that they've shown they are able to turn production on and off as if with a light switch. As Keith Schaefer tells The Energy Report, that means it's time to be nimble, and to keep small positions until oil finds a stable new price level.

The Energy Report: Keith, the first U.S. grassroots refinery in nearly 40 years just began operation in North Dakota. Is the growth in U.S. oil production going to catalyze refinery construction?

Trading Gold and Silver along with the Pros / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Peter_Degraaf

For a number of years the market presence of commercial traders has dictated the direction in the price of gold and silver. With deep pockets and by trading contracts in the futures market without having to back up their contracts with metal, commercial traders acting in concert, can raise the price after a pullback, and cap a rally when their computer trading programs signal that price is ripe for a quick drop.

Switzerland: Ultimate Safe Haven For Liberty, Wealth And Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: goldsilverworlds

At Global Gold, I am often asked what we would do if, for example, the US comes out with a confiscation order. My reply is: We would do nothing whatsoever! Why? Quite simply, because no one in Switzerland has the political power to execute such an order! Even if Swiss politicians would support such a confiscation order, the Swiss people would likely have the final vote. I am confident that any such confiscation order wouldn’t have any chance to reach a majority in Switzerland, especially when it concerns assets held outside the banking system such as physical precious metals. Even in the unlikely case that it would be accepted, the vote would take at least twelve months, thereby giving the persons affected enough time to move their assets. In my view, this is the main advantage of a direct democracy, it assures that the people and not the politicians in power have sovereignty. The federalist structure of Switzerland additionally guarantees that political power is reduced to a minimum. “Confederation Helvetica” might be the old name for Switzerland, but it is just as valid today as it was in the past.

Crude Oil Trading Alert - Price Drops to Neck Line / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): Short positions with a stop-loss order at $65.23 are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

On Friday, crude oil gained 0.49% as a weaker greenback supported the price. As a result, light crude bounced off the neck line of a bearish formation. Will we see further improvement in the coming days?

Gold Price Trend Forecast / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Bob_Loukas

Now that Gold has pushed to a three month high, it's clear that my bullish read of the Gold tape is at least partially correct. In the face of recent negative price action, I had managed to remain cautiously bullish given Gold's position in a new Inv7estor Cycle - it was far too early for Gold to be rolling over, even if it remained locked in an extreme bear market. But now, after this week's action, Gold is in a much better position, and with the possibility of upside ahead. (Glossary of Cycle terms)

Silver Price Projections For 2020 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

I recently published an article projecting possible prices for gold in the year 2020 based on the S&P 500 Index and the ever increasing population adjusted US national debt.  I assumed three scenarios and three different gold projections.  Time will tell regarding gold prices, but what is nearly certain is that national debt will exponentially increase.  Further, over 30 years, the sum of the S&P and gold have increased similarly to the population adjusted national debt.

China Stockpiles 30,000 Tons of Gold to topple US Dollar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Pravda

China is waiting for the right moment to remove the US dollar from economic reign. Once the US dollar loses its leadership, China plans to make the yuan world's first currency. 

According to Duowei News, to ensure its domination, China is saving up gold. According to unconfirmed reports, China already has about 30,000 tons of the precious metal. If this is true, it means that China will be capable of brining the US dollar down in an instant.

Gold, Silver Distorted Markets, Financial Sophistry, and Moral Hazard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jesse

There was intraday commentary here that included an interesting perspective from the audacious one percent and their enablers.

And there was another about the current state of political discussion in Britain, a recent awkwardly stated reflection by the Prime Minister that may have revealed the mindset of their powerful, and its possible relationship with the continuum of politics and 'statism' here.

Oddly enough, both seem to have some implications for another question that was raised by a reader who shared this from another site. It was in reference to a posting earlier this week at Le Café that showed that the number of potential claims on actual available gold at the Comex was back to a record high.
