Gold Prices Search for That Illusive Ignition / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

Let me start by stating that I am a gold and silver bull and that the precious metals sector has been very good to me. However, any stock or commodity doesn’t not go up or down in a straight uninterrupted line. There are bear phases in a bull market just as there are bullish rallies in a bear market. Gold prices are in a long term bull market despite being in a bear phase at the moment. With that being our starting point then being short rather than long in the near term, makes sense to me.

Gold And Silver – Knowledge Is Not Of Value. Using It Is / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

Do markets send messages? Absolutely, and they are there for anyone and everyone to see as they develop. Most people like to read news about increased demand for gold and silver, record purchases for silver eagles, etc, etc, etc. The headlines over the past several months have teemed with such information, raising expectations, but not raising the price either of gold or silver.

More recently, there is “news” about market bottoms, eminent turnarounds, a renewal of where gold and silver can reach, [once the central bankers deplete their gold stocks; once the COMEX fails, and more etcs]. Seems like not as many are paying attention to the most reliable and obvious source of all, the market price itself.

Abelications of Abenomics on Uranium and Nuclear Power / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Richard_Mills

There's a three year downward trend in Chinese imports underway. The chart below, from Nomura Global Economics, shows the trend quite clearly.

China's exports and imports declined again in June. Exports fell 3.1 percent yoy - the most since the global financial crisis in 2008 - while imports dropped 0.7 percent. The poor June report follows a May collapse in export gains - fake invoices had inflated data for the first four months of the year, the bogus data enabled exporters to evade currency controls and bring extra money into the country. Trade growth might come in below the government's target of eight percent for the year.

How to Beat a Gold Shortage / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Miguel Perez-Santalla writes:Gold is sold out! Or so you might think if you miss the true nature of coin supply...

OVER the last few years, during the great investment demand for gold and silver, we have seen sporadic shortages in bullion coins.

Many people have written about these shortages as a harbinger of things to come in precious metals more widely. One of the fads is to decry supply issues in silver and now recently gold. However, the truth of the matter is less dramatic, if not quite so simple.

Gold’s QE3 Anomaly / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold’s biggest psychological overhang this year has been the fate of the Fed’s third quantitative-easing campaign.  Gold futures traders hang on every word of Fed officials, extrapolating them into a timeline for ending QE3.  This consuming obsession fueled unprecedented selling that spawned a stunning gold anomaly.  But as QE3’s nature becomes more apparent, gold is due for a massive mean reversion higher.

It probably already started.  Just this week, the Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke aggressively backtracked on his recent timeline for slowing and then ending QE3!  At a speech in Massachusetts, he said the Fed is failing on both sides of its dual mandate with unemployment too high and inflation too low.  Therefore the Fed ought to keep maintaining zero interest rates and buying bonds until both areas greatly improve.

Did Gold Start to Trade Along With the Stock Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

It seems that everybody’s hanging on the Fed’s every word. Yesterday the S&P 500 index climbed above the closing record of 1,669.16 reached May 21 and closed at its record high (1,675.02) as Ben Bernanke backed sustained monetary stimulus.

The index has advanced for six straight days, the longest winning streak since March 11, and is heading toward its biggest weekly gain since Jan. 4. In this way, the S&P 500 erased losses since Bernanke first suggested the Fed might curb stimulus this year.

Why Ben Bernanke's QE3 Comments are Bullish for Gold Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: When Ben Bernanke speaks, the gold market listens - closely.

The Federal Reserve chairman's comments late Wednesday that the central bank would continue its QE3 economic stimulus for now drove gold prices higher, and they're likely to keep rising.

That's because investors need a hedge against quantitative easing, which looks like it'll be with us for the foreseeable future, and that's good news for gold prices.

Gold Bullion and Gold Stocks Potential Upside Price Targets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Obviously, we can't know if the bottom is in but I'll repost a chart which is my best argument for why we can expect a big rebound over the coming months. The chart shows all of the worst bear markets in gold stocks. At the top right I've annotated the ensuing recoveries. As you can see, D (the HUI from its 2011 top to last Friday's close) is extremely close to B and C in terms of depth and duration. B and C occurred in a secular bull market and were followed by 606% and 560% gains. D is also close to E which was followed by a 205% gain in seven months. A, the 2008 collapse was followed by a 324% gain in less than three years.

Gold Sends Signals for Financial System Breakdown on Numerous Fault Lines / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Many are the signals of breakdown, in the financial system and the Gold market. The day is near for release of gold from under the thumb of the criminal bankers. They can no longer operate in the shadows, recently in full view. The best information coming to my desk indicates that three major Western banks are under constant threat of failure overnight, every night, forcing extraordinary measures to avoid failure. They are Deutshe Bank in Germany, Barclays in London, and Citibank in New York. Judging from the ongoing defense from prosecution and cooperation (flipped) with Interpol and distraction of resources, the most likely bank to die next is Deutsche Bank. They are caught with accounting fraud and outright financial fraud over collateral shell games, pertaining to USTreasury Bonds, other sovereign bonds in Southern Europe, and OTC derivatives linked to FOREX currency contracts. D-Bank is a dead man walking.

Leaked IMF Report Shows Dangers For US Economy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dan_Amerman

A confidential internal International Monetary Fund report was recently leaked to the Wall Street Journal, with the contents later being made public by the IMF. The contents of this report have major implications for Europe, but even greater implications for the United States.

Most of the press attention is being paid to the legalities associated with the report, and revolve around what the International Monetary Fund knew, when it knew it, and whether it properly acted within its charter at various points.  However, what is being overlooked is the truly explosive information that comes in the form of what the IMF admitted (in this internal report to itself) when it came to miscalculations about "austerity", and closing budget deficits.

Gold Up Oil Down – Fundamentals Win / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Andrew_McKillop

WTI BRENT ARBITRAGE IS A RELIC
On February 8 this year Reuters reported that east hemisphere benchmark crude Brent commanded a premium of over $23 a barrel against US benchmark WTI. As of 11 July, with WTI prices soaring past $106 a barrel to reach their highest since March 2012, the premium is down 90% to $2.15 a barrel.

 Although it took a while for oil traders to adjust their minds to reality, they did adjust – downwards.

Gold Price Cycles A Low About NOW? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DeviantInvestor

Background: Gold prices peaked in September 2011 and have dropped over one-third in the past 22 months. Sentiment by almost any measure is currently terrible. Few in the US are interested in gold (although gold is selling well in China), most have lost money (on paper) if they bought in the last two years, and the emotional pain seems considerable. It reminds me of the S&P, gold, and silver crashes in 2008-9.

WHOLESALE prices for gold retreated from an overnight surge to nearly $1300 per ounce in London trade Thursday morning, while world stock markets ticked higher with major government bonds and commodities.

Gold's earlier 4.0% jump came after Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke confirmed that the US central bank will maintain its "highly accommodative monetary policy for the foreseeable future [because it] is what's needed."

Gold Major Cycle Turn Today / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

The higher retracement in gold prompted me to re-examine the Cycles Model. In doing so, I discovered that the red Master Cycle completed 235 days on June 28. In it were 4 Trading Cycles, averaging 58.5 days each and 5 Primary Cycles, averaging 47 days each. One of the ways to determine whether this is correct is that the lesser cycles will stretch or shrink to fit the Master Cycle, which we can see in the chart.

Previously we have looked at the global gold market, COMEX, and more recently the London Gold Market. The next logical focus of our investigations is the Shanghai Gold Exchange. We also have a great infographic providing you with the top figures.

The Switch in Gold Offered Rates / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Dead for almost a decade, gold offered rates are suddenly headline news...

The Markets in physical gold and silver can look very odd places at first glance. The price drop this year has been so aggressive, it's only making them odder.

Take the market for gold lending, for instance. Few people understand the difference between leasing and forward swaps. Nor should they care, not as a rule. Even if you really haven't got anything better to worry about, the two forms of gold lending look very similar net-net.
