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.

Strategies for Success in a Bloody Gold Stocks Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

 

 

With so many junior mining companies going into hibernation, John Kaiser of Kaiser Research Online fears that the entire mining sector could fall dormant. In this interview with The Gold Report, he outlines approaches to discovery and development that smart, nimble companies are deploying to stay alive. Whether precious, base and critical metals, or in jurisdictions as exotic as Morocco and as familiar as Nevada, these are the basics required for survival in today's brutal market.

Silver the Resilient Commodity Ready for a Big Comeback / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Investment_Contraria

John Paul Whitefoot writes: For many investors, 2013 was supposed to be the year that silver regained its luster. Most economists thought silver would climb as a hedge against inflation and be a devalued dollar on the heels of continued economic turmoil. Or, assuming the economic rebound was in full swing, it would grow due to industrial demand for everything from solar panels to electronics, batteries to the automotive industry.

Silver - The Precious Metals Bellweather? Possibly / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

A shout-out to I M Vronsky and his crew, [Gold-Eagle], for reaching its 475 Millionth view since it began on 1 January 1997. Congrats!

This is a singular look at silver because of its current position on the charts that may be giving our first hint of potential bottoming activity. It is a "fashionable sport" for many to call a bottom, or a top, even though "they" are consistently wrong. No one can tell what has not yet happened, aka the future.

By: Investment_U

Mark Skousen writes: “Gold isn’t such a hot inflation hedge.”- Alexander Green

In his July 1 Investment U column, “Why You Still Shouldn’t Listen to Gold Bugs,” Alex Green made the bold statement that gold has been a lousy inflation hedge.

He wrote, “It hit a high of $875 an ounce in January 1980. And even though we experienced double-digit inflation that year, it lost a third of its value by Dec. 31. And it kept dropping for almost 20 years.

Gold And Silver – Silver Market Sending A Message / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

When the markets “speak,” we “listen.” For all of the non-stop bullish “news” about the unprecedented demand, more for gold than silver, and all of the talk about how useless the COMEX paper market is, it has been the paper market that the forces of supply and demand have been heeding. If it were otherwise, the unprecedented demand for gold would have the price of gold higher than the bogus paper market. Yet, that has not been the case.

Do Rising Long Interest Rates Threaten Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

As gold has plunged in the past couple months, yields on benchmark US 10-year Treasury Notes have soared.  Many Wall Street analysts claim these rising long rates are very bearish for gold, and have exacerbated its recent weakness.  Since the metal yields nothing, higher bond yields make investing in gold less attractive.  This thesis certainly sounds logical, but do rising long rates really threaten gold?

Like any market theory, this one is best tested against the record of history and precedent.  If rising or higher bond yields hammered gold prices in the past, then the gold bears’ warnings about their impact this time around are probably justified.  And given the extraordinary surge in 10y Treasury yields in the past couple months, gold investors really need to consider how these yields affected gold historically.

FOR ALL ITS monetary and investment history, silver is by far an industrial metal today.

The industrial sector consumed close to 466 million ounces of silver in 2012 according to the Silver Institute. Add what's left of photographic demand, and you get to 524 moz, some 62% of total fabrication.

Gold Price Moves from the European Perspective / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Despite the lack of trading activity in the United States due to the Independence Day celebrations, yesterday's session in Europe was very interesting. The players on the foreign exchange market have provided plenty of thrills. Without a doubt, the ECB President's announcement was fuel for further dynamic declines in the euro. Draghi said the bank expected its key interest rates to remain at current or lower levels for an extended period. The ECB left its main interest rates unchanged as expected at record lows of 0.5 percent. Market reaction was swift and pronounced. The European currency dropped to a five-week low against the dollar.

U.S. Dollar Jumps on Non Farm Payrolls, Sending Gold and Silver to Lowest Weekly Close in 3 Years / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The DOLLAR PRICE of gold dropped $20 per ounce lunchtime Friday in London, briefly dropping through $1220 per ounce after the release of June's US non-farm payrolls data.

Non-farm payrolls growth came in at 195,000 against consensus forecasts of 165,000.

The US jobless rate stayed at 7.6% however, rather than slipping as forecast. But average hourly earnings rose 2.2% annually against the 2.0% analysts predicted.

Has Gold's 'Bubble' Burst Or Is This A Golden Opportunity? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

Yesterday’s AM fix was USD 1,249.50, EUR 961.15 and GBP 819.67 per ounce.

Gold is lower today in all currencies. It is now flat on the week in dollar terms but has eked out gains in pound and euro terms after the BOE and ECB elected to keep interest rates at 0.5%. Unprecedentedly low interest rates continue in the western world which is gold supportive.

Dollar Gold Correlation - All The Wrong Reasons! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Darah_Bazargan

While most 4th rate analysts unwittingly misdirect you into watching for a big dollar collapse and cling on to its alleged correlation to gold, all you have to do is look back a year and see their relationship is worthless. The gold trade has been an obvious disappointment and its most recent breakdown through 1320 has brought about a ‘think tank’ infested with analysts fetching for all sorts of reasons that seem rational for calling a bottom. None of which are true--and of course these same analysts that tell you to keep an ‘open mind’ are the ones mentally blocked from knowing the characteristics of a downtrend. And they’ve been sending you emails and newsletters for months saying this “JUST MAY BE the TIME” we have reached the final low!

Investing in Gold Bullion Is All About Timing—Here’s How to Do It Right / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: People always ask me about gold bullion. They want to know if it’s the right time to get back into gold bullion as an investment. While many other advisors are advocating a wholesale abandonment of gold bullion, I believe the time to buy is close.

Finding the proper entry point in the market is never easy, but there are several factors that combine to indicate an ideal investment opportunity. The first step to recognizing when the investment opportunity arises is to understand some gold bullion fundamentals.
