Ben Bernanke's Real Message for Gold Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Don't fall for propaganda from the Federal Reserve about tapering quantitative easing, says ShadowStats editor John Williams in this interview with The Gold Report. His corrected economic indicators show the U.S. is nowhere near a recovery and the Fed will have to increase rather than decrease bond buying to prop up the banks and push off inevitable dollar debasement. That could be very bad for savers, but good for gold.

 

The Gold Report: On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve hinted that it might begin tapering quantitative easing by the end of the year based on signs of an improving economy. Gold immediately dropped from $1,347 an ounce ($1,347/oz) to $1,277/oz, a 7% decline and the lowest price in more than two years. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and NASDAQ were also off more than 2%. You called this "jawboning" and said that due to stresses in the banking system the Fed would be obliged to continue bond buying. Why would the central bank threaten to cut off the flow if it didn't plan to do it?

Is Gold Price Trying to Tell Us Another 2008 Crisis is Lurking in the Shadows? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_J_Kosares

This monthly gold chart is drawn on the logarithmic scale in order to remove some of the melodrama to the latest correction. Linear charts emphasize nominal price movement while a log chart emphasizes the percentage movement. By reviewing gold’s latest correction on a percentage basis, we can put things into a little bit better perspective. The 2008 correction was 26%; the current correct thus far has been 30%. In short, we’ve been here before though you wouldn’t know it from all the catterwauling at our favorite financial cable network and other media outlets (not to mention Wall Street itself). Granted we might not, as yet, have reached bottom, but then again, we could be close.

Gold Investors Keep Calm and Carry On / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Frank_Holmes

Legendary businessman Steve Forbes once said, "Everyone is a disciplined, long-term investor until the market goes down." It's challenging to have the fortitude to hold on to investments during a one-day carnage event like last Thursday. Everywhere you looked there was red on the screen, as U.S. stocks lost 2.5 percent, commodity equities lost 3 percent and gold declined 5 percent. Gold stocks took one of the biggest blows, falling about 7.5 percent.

So what should an investor do after a day like Thursday? Stay calm and invest on, as I believe there is opportunity in picking up what the bears left behind. Here are a few ideas to ponder.

Resources Sector Nuclear Winter? Not Yet! / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Casey_Research

By Andrey Dashkov, Research Analyst

The late 1990s for the resource sector was so challenging that it is now often referred to as the "nuclear winter" of the industry. Some analysts are comparing our current circumstances to that period, while others purport we haven't hit bottom yet.

Miguel Perez-Santalla writes: Photographic demand for silver has fallen 70% from its peak. What could possibly fill that gap...?

BACK in the good old days, a physical silver trader's dream would be to land a photographic company as a customer.
 
Polaroid, Kodak, Fuji and many more were on this list of prospects. This industry was a tremendous behemoth in the silver market.

Extreme Energy, Extreme Implications / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: OilPrice_Com

If oil and gas is a profoundly dynamic phenomenon, then so too must be environmental risk and conflicts over natural resources--and we are not getting the full picture from the mainstream media, according to Michael T. Klare, professor of peace and world security studies at Hampshire College, TomDispatch blogger, and author of Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet: The New Geopolitics of Energy (Metropolitan Books, 2008). As risk multiply, conventional sources evaporate and we are left with "extreme" energy, renewables may be the only way to avoid war and disaster.

Australian Gold Stocks Sector Update / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Neil_Charnock

The Australian gold sector (XGD) is selling today (intra-day) at a record 53.56% below its 200dma.  This is a rare event indeed as even the 2008 violent panic crash produced a low around 48% below the 200dma at that time.  This current crash on the Australian XGD is a fall of 66% since October 2012 and a fall of 75% from the all-time high of 8498.9 in April 2011. 

To understand this index you have to look at its makeup.  The index is weighted and therefore dominated by our largest gold stock Newcrest which has fared very badly this month.  Therefore the Newcrest weighting in the index has lessened over the recent month.  This stock has fallen 56.1% since the 27th March this year and 36.63% since the 4th of June alone.  With Newcrest down so far you have to ask where the rest of the sector is relative to old lows right now.

Gold Price Could Go to $700 or $3000 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: WavePatternTraders

That's the question that Gold traders and investors are asking themselves.

Gold has now reached a climax point that long term traders get to really find out if Gold is still in a bull market or finally in a long term bear market.

No matter how you look at it, Gold has been in a bear market for the past few years, whilst long term you could argue its still in an up trend, I think the decision about the direction of Gold being in a long term bull trend is about to be decided shortly.

In the wee morning hours before dawn on Thursday, June 20, the precious metals' rooster crowed, "*****-a-doodle-DOH!"

It was the ultimate wake-up call:

First, gold prices plummeted 4% then 5% then 6% below $1300 per ounce to their lowest level in nearly three years. Soon, silver followed in an even steeper drop below $20.

What Kind of Fools Are Buying Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

Russia is one example.

U.S. Fed Meeting Did Not End Gold Bull Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

This week’s Fed meeting saw members putting forward a provisional timetable for the tapering and the end of QE3. This triggered a sharp decline in gold prices, as additional QE has been a major driver of higher prices in recent years. One question we are getting asked is did this FOMC meeting end the gold bull market?

Our answer is no, this Fed meeting did not end the gold bull market.

Gold And Silver - The End Is Near; Just Not In Sight / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

Whatever expectation[s] you may have, expect the unexpected and unlike what you may expect. So far, that has been playing out quite nicely, and one of our expectations is that it will continue to unfold in the same manner, and to the ongoing surprise of most.

"Gold will be at/above $2,000 by the end of the year."

"Gold will reach $3,000 [$5,000, $10,000, etc] and silver $100, [$250, $500, etc]"

"The central bankers are [just about] out of gold." [The cupboards are likely bare.]

Gold Stocks Final Capitulation Imminent / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Our recent calls for a bottom have been proven wrong as precious metals plunged to another new low. Two trading rules we have is to always use a 20% stop and never add to a losing position. Note our previous article in which we said use the late May low for a stop. This helps minimize risk and potential losses, though we have a handful of small losses trying to anticipate the coming rebound. We always admit mistakes to subscribers and we never blame manipulation. That is just unprofessional. All being said, a close examination of history tells us that this could be the final capitulation that would lead directly to a huge rebound in the ensuing months.

Gold Stocks Bullish Volume / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

Even before this week’s latest Fed-tapering scare, gold stocks remained firmly entrenched as the most-hated sector in all the markets.  They are as deeply out of favor as they’ve been in their entire dozen-year secular bull, hyper-oversold and radically undervalued.  Given such epic antipathy, I figured they were also suffering from low trading volume.  Turns out they are, with some surprises, which is a bullish omen.

It’s been several years since I’ve studied gold-stock volume in any depth, and I’ve been growing more curious about it as this year’s massive gold-stock rout wore on.  Trading volume is pretty ambiguous as far as technical indicators go.  While most indicators clearly flag excessive greed or fear, high volume can show both.  Volume tends to surge when traders get excited, when either kind of emotion is running high.

Taking the Blinkers off the Gold Analysts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jan_Skoyles

Since the middle of April we have all heard the gold bear cry of ‘it’s over, gold is done with…the bubble has burst.’ But not many of these so-called expert commentators have really looked into the strength of demand in the East.

Jeff Nichols wrote in a note to investors recently that he believed gold bears ‘have a fairly provincial view and limited understanding of gold’s increasingly bullish long-term fundamentals.’ He went onto define ‘provincial’: ‘they are ignoring more than half the world.’

Gold and Silver Hit New Lows as CME Hikes Margins / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

SPOT MARKET gold bullion prices touched fresh three-year lows Friday at $1269 an ounce before recovering a little by lunchtime in London, as stocks and commodities also regained some ground after sharp falls yesterday.

Spot silver prices fell as low as $19.41 an ounce, as with gold their lowest level since September 2010, before they too recovered a little, as other commodities also ticked higher while the US Dollar weakened slightly.
