What the Gold Price Fall Proves? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

"And this means that it is deeply, deeply wrong to think of rising gold prices when bond yields are low as some kind of symptom of monetary excess." Paul Krugman, 10 September 2011

So don't think of gold as an indicator of monetary excess when it is going up, but when it is going down it can be used to prove your hypothesis of a lack of excess, as PK does in the new article cited below.

Forget the Gold Bulls… and the Gold Bears / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Investment_U

by Alexander Green : Gold cratered Friday and then again yesterday, hitting a two-year low on fears that troubled European countries will have to sell their reserves to cover the cost of increasingly expensive bailouts.

The sell-off took the metal below the important $1,400 psychological threshold. Gold bulls are now proclaiming that this “correction” represents an excellent new entry point before the next big rally.

Gold Slam is a Massive Wealth Transfer from Our Pockets to the Banks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Martenson

I am very disappointed by, but not surprised at, the latest transfer of wealth to the bankers from everyone else.  The most recent gold bear raid has vastly enriched the bullion bankers, once again, at the expense of everyone trying to protect their wealth from global central bank money printing.

The central plank of Bernanke's magic recovery plan has been to get everybody back borrowing, spending, and "investing" in stocks, bonds, and other financial assets.  But not equally so, as he has been instrumental in distorting the landscape towards risk assets and away from safe harbors.

Gold Loses $1 Trillion of Total Global Value, "Could Fall to $1050" / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

SPOT MARKET gold prices fell to a fresh two-year low in Tuesday's Asian trading, dropping to $1322 per ounce, before rallying back above $1386, as stock markets extended yesterday's losses.

Silver dropped to its lowest level since September 2010 at $22.10 an ounce before it too recovered some ground. Oil was down on the day by lunchtime in London, while copper ticked slightly higher.

Gold...Silver....Bursting Bubbles......Lead Stock Market Lower.... / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

Yes, the selling was across the board today, but the most interesting part of today was watching the continued bursting of the commodity bubbles in gold and silver, along with other areas of the commodity worst. Gold and silver and other commodities have never been anything more than pure froth or a bubble, no different than the bubble that existed in 1998-1999 in the world of technology. What you learn through age is that ALL bubbles burst in time and never come back. The only sad part of bubbles that burst for good is the amount of people who sadly get sucked in at the top. They lose lots of money over the first few months, but are told to hang in there as it always comes back in time.

Don't Panic, Buy Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

It looks bad for precious metals. Gold prices have fallen hard. Explorers are hurting for money. Slim treasuries mean fewer drill programs. Scarce discovery news could lead to fewer listings on the Toronto Stock Exchange. But all is not lost. In this interview with The Gold Report, Rick Mills, owner and host of Ahead of the Herd, points to the fundamentals of silver and the opportunities for stock pickers willing to invest in small bites and wait out the inevitable market ups and downs.

 

The Gold Report: Precious metal bul lion and equities are taking a hit right now in the market. Why do you feel silver is an interesting investment today?

Gold Price Plummet Is Latest AMSCAM Fraud / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Midas_Letter

Today gold has dropped $133 from last week’s close. Friday’s assassination attempt, which as the price of gold drop from $1,560 and ounce to $1475 per ounce, by futures market shorts is remarkable on two fronts. First is that there were 400 tonnes of (paper) gold sold, or one quarter of global annual production. In one day. The second is that this was such an obvious short play – nobody but nobody could deliver 400 tonnes of physical gold in June if they had to – that it absolutely screams “collusion”. What’s more, the sentiment in the mainstream financial press before the assault began, led by Goldman Sachs, who on Thursday proclaimed it was time to short gold, was massively bearish.

Gold Panic Selling, Bear Market Bottoms / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeb_Handwerger

"The main purpose of the stock market is to make fools of as many men as possible." Bernard Baruch

Bear market bottoms are marked by frenzied selling after an extended downtrend of 18 months. Caveat venditor! The record amount of precious metal bears and short sellers getting caught up in this emotional panic may forecast that the downward trend for almost two years in the mining stocks and precious metals may be coming to an end. Capitulation and downward gaps many times mark the bottom or end of the previous downward trend.

The Fed’s Assault On Gold: “Short Selling” and the Rigging of the Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

I was the first to point out that the Federal Reserve was rigging all markets, not merely bond prices and interest rates, and that the Fed is rigging the bullion market in order to protect the US dollar’s exchange value, which is threatened by the Fed’s quantitative easing. With the Fed adding to the supply of dollars faster than the demand for dollars is increasing, the price or exchange value of the dollar is set up to fall.

Gold Crashes and Japan Sinks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Graham_Summers

Gold is crashing this morning, falling over $90 to $1413 per ounce.

This move is looking to be largely based on institutional liquidation in Asia where Japanese bonds are being sold.

The Bank of Japan announced a massive $1.2 trillion QE effort on April 6. The move was lunacy given that Japan has already announced QE equal to over 20% of its GDP in the preceding years and GDP growth was still slowing.

Debtors Nations Forced to Sell Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Peter_Schiff

In the opening years of the last decade, most mainstream investors sat on the sidelines while "tin hat" goldbugs rode the bull market from below $300 to just over $1,000 per ounce. But following the 2008 financial crisis, when gold held up better than stocks during the decline and made new record highs long before the Dow Jones fully recovered, Wall Street finally sat up and took notice. The new devotees helped to push gold to nearly $1,900 by September of 2011. For the next year and a half it held relatively steady, trading mostly between $1,500 and $1,800 as more mainstream investors caught the fever. But now it appears that the brief love affair is at an end. It was really only a flirtation as the two were never a good match in the first place. Gold's new suitors never understood the fundamental case for gold and now they are turning their affection back to their true love: U.S. equities.

Gold Bulls Need To Learn The Importance Of Stopping Out / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

Over the last 10 years, gold bulls have had a fantastic run as gold rose more than 475% to its August 2011 highs. Even after the recent collapse in gold prices the metal is still up more than 350% in the last decade; the simple strategy of “buy the dip” has yielded enormous profits.

Gold bulls have been able to make gains for years by merely buying gold whenever the price dropped as the next rally would result in new highs before a great deal of time had passed. This however raises the question of “what happens when gold does not make new highs?” The answer is that those who have been employing this strategy lose money; gold dips and the perma-bulls buy, gold dips again so the perma-bulls buy again, gold continues on a downward trend and the once profitable strategy of “buy the dip” soon eats away at the profits that it once generated.

Like 1973, Dow’s Stock Market Decline To Bring Massive Gold Rally? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Hubert_Moolman

For gold to rise to levels significantly higher than the recent high of $1920, a new impetus is needed. Without additional energy from such an impetus, gold could just trade sideways for a very long time, or even fall further.

There is only so much value in the world economy, and it is split between all the different instruments (like gold, silver, stocks bonds, etc.) where value resides.

You bought silver with high expectations! Then it crashed while endless news reports informed you that silver would drop even further. Frustration! Misery! Despair! Depression! You have lived it all. There was no light at the end of the tunnel.

Darkness and despair covered the land of silver. There was no joy in silver-ville.

SPOT MARKET gold prices fell to a two-year low below $1400 an ounce Monday morning, extending Friday's drop that took gold into bear market territory under the definition of a 20% fall from its peak.

Silver fell as low as $23.11 an ounce, its lowest level since October 2010, as stocks and commodities also fell while the Dollar gained.
