The Cold Hard Truth About Solar Energy / Commodities / Solar Energy

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Not long ago, I wrote about the German drive to replace nuclear energy with solar and wind power.

At the time, Berlin was touting this overture as the "next great push" into a new energy age.

Turns out, plans haven't gone as expected.

How Not To Make Gold Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Berwick

Ed Bugos writes: Can gold be the money of the free market if the violent monopoly of government gets behind the effort? This utterly wrong notion is what Ralph Benko seems to be suggesting in his recent article on NationalInterest.org titled "How to Go Gold".

Basically Benko sees a return to gold through world government initiative and collaboration, starting with the US president. He appears to cite evidence that this is underway, starting with the central bank's buying of gold. Then Benko concludes by citing Lewis Lehrman's 5 steps back to a "classical" gold standard:

From 401k to Retirement Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Miguel Perez-Santalla writes: Just how do you go about putting physical precious metals into your retirement account...?

So I have just left a company where I had accumulated a nice amount of retirement funds in my 401K plan.

Like most people, for me a nice amount is any money that somehow hasn't gone to pay for college tuition. So I found myself for the first time in a long time needing to consider what to do with a small chunk of change.

Will We See a Silver Price Breakout in 2013? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Silver has been trading sideways so far in 2013, but what will the rest of the year bring? Will 2013 be the year silver prices break out or crash and burn? What is a sustainable silver price for mining companies and where will the metal come from to supply the next generation of industrial and investment demand? Most important, how can investors make money off this volatile sector? These were the burning questions The Gold Report took to analysts, money managers and heads of silver mining companies. The answers may surprise you.

How Rockefeller Parlayed Pipelines into Billions / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Casey_Research

For at least two thousand years, the Chinese of Sichuan, in south-central China, have dug or drilled holes to tap a briny aquifer, the trapped remains of an ancient inland sea. They boiled down the brine to make crystals of sodium chloride – salt – a food preservative and seasoning so critical in the days before refrigeration that whole civilizations flourished or waned based on its commerce.

The story goes that one day a lightning bolt struck one of the wells, sending a pillar of fire tens of meters into the air. Excited locals named the phenomenon "Wells of Fire." They didn't yet realize it, but they had discovered that natural gas is often associated with salt resources.

Don’t Believe the Chart: Gold Still Looks Promising / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: While I do like gold, I’m somewhat perplexed over the metal’s near-term stock chart. The chart shows indecision and indicates a potential downside break at $1,550, with gold potentially falling out of its current sideways channel.

And it also appears that the professional money has mixed feelings about gold. Famed investor George Soros cut his gold holdings, but Paulson & Co. made no changes. (Source: Rooney, B., “Soros dumps gold as prices sink,” CNN, February 16, 2013, last accessed March 12, 2013.)

Gold Being Strongly Influenced by Technicals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

U.S.DOLLAR gold prices ticked higher to $1597 per ounce Wednesday morning, holding gains from a day earlier, as the Dollar fell against the Euro despite warnings from a prominent Eurozone policymaker that the crisis in the region is not over.

Gold in Euros rose to its highest level this month at €1229 an ounce, in contrast with gold in Sterling, which failed to move back above £1070 an ounce as the Pound recovered some ground against the Dollar after hitting a fresh two-and-a-half-year low yesterday.

It's Time to "Pull the Trigger" on Gun Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Money_Morning

Don Miller writes: U.S. gun sales are at an all-time high. Ammo is flying off store shelves as well.

And that bodes well for companies in the firearms industry, putting the three mentioned below on many investors' "stocks to buy" list.

Fact is, demand for guns and ammo over the past few months is breaking all records. Just take a look at statistics compiled by the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

By: Ben_Traynor

AFTER trading sideways for several sessions, gold bullion jumped above $1590 an ounce for the first time this month Tuesday morning in London, in what analysts called a "technical" move after gold broke through a key level following remarks from Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann.

"We see support at the bottom of the sideways range at $1561 and resistance at the top at $1586," said yesterday's technical analysis note from Scotiabank.

As Investors Flee Gold ETFs, Central Banks Jump in as Bigger Buyers / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

While mainstream financial and a growing number of economic forecasters focus on investors fleeing the gold bullion market, I am following in the footsteps of central banks around the world…

Investors pulled out a record amount of money from gold bullion-backed exchange-traded funds (ETFs) this past February. A total of $4.1 billion was withdrawn from gold bullion ETFs last month, the largest single-month outflow since January of 2011. (Source: ETF Trends, March 6, 2013.)

The following article is an excerpt from one of our past updates “Gold Beaks Down, Tests $1600”, sent to our subscribers February 18th 2013, when gold was $1726 (now $1580) and the HUI miners index was 520 (now 349). We believe that this information is very relevant in the current market situation, as well as for future situations, and have therefore decided to publish this piece for the perusal of the general public.

Gold Continues to Work Through Consolidation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight’s chart is a daily bar chart for gold that shows all the consolidation patterns since hitting the top of the rectangle back in October of last year at 1800 or so. If gold was ready to break below the bottom rail of the big rectangle, today would have been a good time to do so. Because it didn’t breakdown this morning that tells me the sideways correction that has been going on already for almost 3 weeks now, still has more work to do. Below shows what I think could be a smaller red rectangle that is forming below the brown shaded support and resistance zone that may end up being just one more consolidation pattern to the downside.
