Gold Stocks Picking Tools / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

According to Bob Moriarty, the force behind 321gold, the "fact that everyone hated gold in December is a good reason for rational people to love it now." While he recommends physical gold as an essential insurance policy in any portfolio, tax selloffs, low equity prices and low gold prices mean many companies, now selling for "peanuts," are the place to put investment dollars. And, as he tells The Gold Report, all you need to pick a winner is a blindfold and a dart.

The Gold Report: Bob, in the last few weeks, Argentina and Venezuela have devalued their currencies and the central banks in Turkey and South Africa hiked interest rates. The U.S. Federal Reserve cut its monthly bond buying by another $10 billion ($10B). What do you make of all this happening in such a short timeframe?

Gold as the Portfolio Choice for All Seasons / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_J_Kosares

“An ounce of gold cost $271 in 2001. Ten years later it reached $1,896—an increase of almost 700 percent. On the way, it passed through some of the stormiest periods of recent history, when banks collapsed and currencies shivered. The gold price fed on these calamities. In a way, it came to stand for them: it was the re-discovered idol at a time when other gods were falling in a heap of subprime mortgages and credit default swaps and derivative products too complicated to even understand. Against these, gold shone with the placid certainty of received tradition. Honored through the ages, the standard of wealth, the original money, the safe haven. The value of gold was axiomatic. This view depends on a concept of gold as unchanging and unchanged—nature’s hard asset.” – Matthew Hart, Vanity Fair, November, 2013

Why Bitcoin Will Never Trump Gold as a Sound-money Alternative / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Douglas_French

For the first time ever, the majority of Americans are scared of their own federal government. A Pew Research poll found that 53% of Americans think the government threatens their personal rights and freedoms.

Americans aren't wild about the government's currency either. Instead of holding dollars and other financial assets, investors are storing wealth in art, wine, and antique cars. The Economist reported in November, "This buying binge… is growing distrust of financial assets."

Gold Price Runs Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jesse

Janet Yellen's testimony was a bit painful at times, but perhaps it will improve as she becomes more familiar with dancing in the lions' den. Her answer about raising the minimum wage shows her to be a tried and true economic General Pétain, well versed in failure and capitulation to the forces of neo-liberalism. At least le Maréchal de Vichy had a few moments of greatness, although much earlier in life.

Two Reasons to Consider Gold Investments Right Now / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: “Why would someone be bullish on gold right now? Stocks have the momentum. Let me warn: you will be better off buying stocks than buying gold bullion.” These were the “wise” words of my good old friend Mr. Speculator, when I met him over the weekend.

Not too long ago, he was afraid about what would happen to his stock position. Now, his opinion has changed. Mr. Speculator thinks key stock indices will hit new highs and gold bullion—which provides safety against the backdrop of a weak economy—will go down further. He said, “It will be a bad year for gold investors.”

The Golden Age of Gas, Possible Says Head of IEA / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: OilPrice_Com

The potential for a golden age of gas comes along with a big "if" regarding environmental and social impact. The International Energy Agency (IEA)--the "global energy authority"--believes that this age of gas can be golden, and that unconventional gas can be produced in an environmentally acceptable way.

Gold Questions That Deserve Answers / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

  • Germany requested that the NY Federal Reserve return the gold that Germany shipped to the United States decades ago. If the gold were physically in the vaults, it would be relatively simple to ship the gold back to Germany. It has not been returned, which begs the question, where is Germany's gold?

    Gold an Asset, Cash or Both? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

    By: Julian_DW_Phillips

    As we sit ahead of a future inflation or deflation or both, still to come, we need to understand how gold will perform in these sets of conditions. Much has been written on gold being an inflation hedge but not so much on its value in deflation. But gold is not so easy to slot into a pre-defined category like this. In history it has performed well in several other situations. In uncertainty, whether it has been in wartime, economic uncertainty or simply national uncertainty it has performed well. When confidence in currencies seeps away gold prices in those lands reflect the fall of the currency as it rises.

    Gold International Buying / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

    By: Jeff_Clark

    As a gold investor in North America, it sometimes feels like I'm living in some far-off land where everyone believes in fairy tales and unicorns.

    Most people around me don't seem to see anything wrong with the Fed creating $65 billion a month out of thin air—hey, it's not $85 billion anymore, what a relief! It's business as usual for the US government to spend billions more than it takes in, and a public debt hovering at $17.2 trillion—up from $7 trillion just 10 years ago—seems no more alarming than a rainbow.

    Crude Oil Trading Alert: Oil Price Hits Fresh Monthly High / Commodities / Crude Oil

    By: Nadia_Simmons

    Trading position (short-term): In our opinion no positions are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

    On Friday, crude oil gained 2.27% as the U.S. dollar weakened against major currencies after a monthly U.S. employment report came in weaker than expected. Thanks to these circumstances, light crude extended gains and rose above $100 per barrel for the first time in more than a month.

    U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls Fizzle, Gold and Silver Held in Check / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

    By: Jesse

    Friday was an exceptionally interesting day, with a lot of things going on from the very start.

    The premiere event was the US Non-Farm Payrolls Report, which pretty much sucked out loud, coming in with an underestimated 113,000 jobs versus a 175,000 expected. This was mitigated a bit by the 'private jobs' added of 142,000 which was closer to estimates. And it could make some feel good because it was in 'government jobs' that much of the shortfall occurred.

    Gold And Silver - NWO 'Problem-Reaction' Ploy Stronger Than Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

    By: Michael_Noonan

    The fundamentals for gold and silver worsen with each passing week, it seems, yet the price for gold and silver still languish in down trends. If everything is as precarious as is depicted in so many other articles citing how PMs are in dire straights, for the same deteriorating reasons presented with pinpoint numbers, as in reduced stocks of deliverable metals, increased transfers from West to East, why are gold and silver still near recent lows for the past two years?

    How Gold is Currently Being Priced / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

    Gold's Price

    Ahead of the Herd readers know I believe gold's price is being driven by rising, or falling, real interest rates.

    Real interest rates are the level of annual yield paid to savers and investors over and above the pace of inflation.

    Gold and Silver Stocks Moving Average Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

    By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

    The gold and silver stocks have rebounded nicely but have consolidated in recent weeks. Where is this going and how do we know? Well, a few weeks ago we publicly said that a major bottom is in. Thus, we believe the trend will go higher. Beyond belief, we need real confirmation that the sector will continue higher. Enter moving average analysis. By using a few simple moving averages we can better understand the current context and get confirmation that the sector will continue to move higher. GDX, GDXJ and SIL could soon test moving averages which have been resistance for the past 13 months.

    By: Ned_W_Schmidt

    As we welcomed the beginning of 2014 the advice from "gurus" was rather straight forward. Gold was going to $1,060. At the same time the stock markets would continue to advance. So our life would be financially happy if we sold our Gold and bought the favorites fantasies in the NASDAQ/technology group, such as TWTR. Well, seems the real world was to hold some disappointment for those strategists.

    Silver Price Outperforming Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

    By: Alasdair_Macleod

    Since Monday financial markets have consolidated following the emerging market currency shocks of the previous week. Safe-haven bonds were strong initially, before tailing off yesterday. Equities started the week badly but steadied yesterday, and gold spiked at $1274 on Wednesday before being knocked back $20 subsequently. The result is gold was more or less unchanged on the week by last night, though early indications London time are for better prices today.

    By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

    The errors of financial policy, led by the world's central banks have once again created the makings of a massive crisis. Blind to risk, and completely captured by politics and ideology, it is as if the Federal Reserve and it's counterparts have been awarded a total mandate. All of the misplaced and mis priced  risk is poised to flood toward precious metals.

    Much controversy surrounds comparisons between precious metals and the growing number of crypto currencies. In some ways an ideological wedge has formed between hard asset investors and the most vocal of  electronic currency advocates.

    While both investment options remain relatively sequestered from the mainstream spotlight, they both offer fascinating perspectives for understanding the ongoing monetary and financial crisis.

    By: Michael_J_Kosares

    ANDREW DICKSON WHITE ENDS HIS CLASSIC HISTORICAL ESSAY on hyperinflation, “Fiat Money Inflation in France,” with one of the more famous lines in economic literature: “There is a lesson in all this which it behooves every thinking man to ponder.” The lesson that there is a connection between government over-issuance of paper money, inflation and the destruction of middle-class savings has been routinely ignored in the modern era. So much so, that enlightened savers the world over wonder if public officials will ever learn it.

    Fight China's Smog with Ethanol, Says Chen Lin / Commodities / Ethanol

    By: The_Energy_Report

    In decades past, we have seen that any commodity China really wants goes through the roof. We saw it in copper. We saw it in oil. We saw it in liquefied natural gas. If China starts mandating a 5% blend of ethanol to gasoline, ethanol should trade on par with gasoline. So says Chen Lin, author of the widely read newsletter What is Chen Buying? What is Chen Selling? But there's more to the story: because China produces no ethanol, U.S. ethanol producers could be looking at a massive new market, not to mention a spike in profit margins. In this interview with The Energy Report, Chen discloses his favorite ethanol picks, as well as some compelling fracking names.
