New Gold Standard, Gold Bugs Love It, But is Just a Dream / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Thanks largely to Ron Paul, the Republicans have suddenly become enamored of gold.

And why not?...It is real money.

These newly-born gold bugs have even gone so far as to include a call for a commission to examine a return to the gold standard in the party platform.

Gold Stocks Under-perform All Other Sectors / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDifferent investors prefer to invest in different products for a multitude of reasons and end goals. A vast range of equities, currencies, bonds and commodities can now all be traded from the click of a mouse anywhere in the world. Although not our predominant focus, equities have several pros and cons, can lead to significant wealth, especially with the market in the right state. On the flip side, some traders preach the benefits of gold mining stocks as a way to benefit from rising gold prices – a view we strongly disagree with.

Gold Stocks: History Argues for More Upside / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver stocks are not only the most volatile sector but the highest beta sector. Therefore the percentage moves can be quite exaggerated relative to the market. Currently, the shares have emerged from a W bottoming pattern. They have gained substantially (in percentage terms) in just the past month. I wanted to consult history and in particular the rebounds following the bottoms in 2000, 2005 and 2008 to get a sense of the reasonable upside potential over the coming months. Judging from history, one should not be alarmed about the recent gains because these rebounds tend to run much longer and higher.

Investors Preparing For QE3 As Gold and Silver Skyrocket / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver (SLV) is breaking out past $30 and the trend is moving higher as the Fed signals that they are now ready to pull the trigger and boost the economy possibly as early as the next Open Market Meeting in the middle of September. Silver is regaining the 200 day moving average on a breathtaking move. Even though we have the general equity markets at record highs, economic conditions all around the world are not showing evidence of a recovery…yet.

The Power of the Powerless Supports a Raging Silver Bull Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

The Power of the Powerless Supports a Raging Silver Bull Market

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn essence, taking possession of artificially cheap silver is not only akin to an act of wealth conservation, it is also a quiet form of protest.

Protest against a failed currency structure imposed by a government up on its citizens that has given rise to the extreme complexity and overgrowth in the financial sector and which allows those closest to the free money a significant advantage over the populace.

Peak Silver Redux? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs prices at the pump gradually move back up, one finds no shortage of people calling for new financial regulations.Frequently blamed on speculators, higher gasoline prices are — as some politicians say — the result of lax laws regulating the financial system.

Nevertheless, can it really be only speculators that are driving up the price of oil? Surely, the petroleum market is deeper than that.

Gold Primary Trend Continues To Advance / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEducation: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge- Mark Twain

Gold continued to make good headway during the week in spite of warnings that it was overbought and/or a risky venture. The yellow metal began the week on Tuesday at 1,687.60 and closed on Friday at 1,737.60. There were attempts to sell it along the way and they were met with strong buying as has been the custom. In this world of hype and misinformation there is only one real port in the storm, and that’s gold. That didn’t change this week. Gold moves higher in spite of the rhetoric to the contrary and in spite of the fact that few understand what moves it, and even fewer own it. I listen to pundit after pundit call tops to the bull market and yet they forget that the general public doesn’t own any gold. Then they’ll tell you that the public will never buy gold. I maintain that if the public was stupid enough to buy into the NASDAQ craze, and they were, they’ll be smart enough to buy gold.

Silver Price Hits Multi-Month High / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price of silver reached a 5-month high this past week as investor interest seems to have been rekindled in both gold and silver as belief in financial markets increases that the latest round of monetary easing from the Federal Reserve – QE3 – will soon be on its way. Many investors had largely stayed away from silver in recent months after some had got caught up in its volatility. Silver had touched a 30-year high in April 2011 before plunging 35 percent in a few short weeks.

As The Euro Tumbles, Spaniards Look To Gold Bars / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJ. Luis Martin writes: The unremitting deterioration of the eurozone's sovereign debt landscape continues to fuel uncertainties about the longevity of the euro as a strong currency. Such uncertainties are not only leading to capital flight from the EMU's periphery to the core and destabilizing markets worldwide, but they are also beginning to frighten southern European savers into seeking refuge outside their 10-year-old currency.

Gold Bugs and Anti-Gold Bugs, It's a Fight for Civilization / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recent article by David Weiner on the MarketWatch site reminded me of just how weak the economic arguments against the gold standard are. Its title: "A Fool's Gold Standard." I examined this article here.

The arguments by American critics of a gold standard all rest on this unstated presumption.

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Niehuser, founder of Beacon Rock Research, incorporates his banking school background into his mining industry analysis. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he assesses the macroeconomic situation from a banker's perspective, explains why he is convinced gold is ready to take off and shares the names of companies poised to profit from mining in the northwestern United States.

 

The Gold Report: You were at the Pacific Coast Banking School last Friday when gold prices dipped and then surged on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's comments. Why are you attending banking school?

Gold Stocks Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter weathering a long consolidation followed by a major correction, gold stocks remain deeply out of favor today.  But this bearish sentiment is slowly yielding as gold powers higher in its usual autumn rally.  Gold stocks are starting to show signs of life again.  And after their strong advance since late July, they are now on the verge of a major upside breakout.  Odds are this event will herald a major new upleg.

Commodity Investing in a Time of Rising Resource Nationalism / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Ever-deeper, ever-further” has been the mantra of major natural resource producers over the past decade, as emerging Asia has replaced the US as the world’s single biggest consumer and driven demand to new heights.

This unprecedented expansion hasn’t always driven up costs. In fact, major producers of everything from copper to platinum are uncovering some of the richest reserves yet seen with their massive investment. That’s helped keep a lid on companies’ overall production costs, which in turn has aided further investment. It has, however, elevated resource nationalism risk to heights not seen since the 1970s, when countries such as Chile expropriated assets from investors domestic and foreign.

The Anti-Gold Fool / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Weidner wrote a piece for MarketWatch: "Fool's Gold Standard."

It was standard stuff, i.e., a combination of economic stupidity, attempted cleverness, and the rhetoric of contempt.

It deserves my special treatment, which I reserve for mainstream media journalists who hate the idea of a world not run by the Federal Reserve and who try to be clever. Weidner is not clever.

The soaring prices of rare earth metals and uncertain supply forecasts due to Chinese quota restrictions dominated discussions in the first half of 2012.
