Chocolate for Cocoa, Or What's Gold Really Worth? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

Spying direction is hard enough in precious metals right now without confusing form and location...

SO WHAT'S your gold or silver really worth today? Like everything else, it's worth the most that somebody else will pay you for it, right here and now. That's the simple truth, as last month's crash proved all too plainly.

There were no gold buyers in size on Friday 12th and Monday 15th April, not between $1550 and $1325 per ounce. But gold has found plenty of buyers since then, after finding a floor more than 30% below its peak of September 2011.

U.S. Corn Crop - Too Cold or Wet Yet / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Let us start by remembering the most important aspect of Agri-Commodities. They are not produced in a factory. Corn, today's example, is produced by placing a seed in dirt with the proper amount of water and nutrients. Of that complete process nothing happens til the seed is planted. If no seeds are planted, no corn. All that happens only once a year.

Treachery, Fraud, Protection, Gold Mega-Action and Mega-Consequence / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The Fascist Business Model came into vogue in 2001. The merger of state with the largest of corporations, primarily the big banks, the big defense contractors, the big news media networks, and the big pharmaceuticals, has created a chokehold around the neck of the nation, without 5% recognizing the function of the model during the strangulation in progress. The merger with the deeply corrupted corporations in power became standard fixtures following the 911 attacks, an elaborate self-destruction of the fundamental structure of the nation and its priorities by the syndicate. Think a massive elaborate bank heist of gold bars, bearer bonds, and diamonds, but such discussion belongs in other venues. Let it be said that the events of September 2001 were the syndicate coming out party and the Patriot Act their Nazi Manifesto, with painfully little recognition of events by the sheeple masses or the subservient press talking heads. The national socialists are back in force after a 70-year hiatus, with far more toys and devices. Their telltale signals are bank welfare and a flag wrapped in a cross with unending press coverage of terrorism. During the last twelve years, financial treachery and banking criminality have run rampant in a true global spectacle, their stock & trade. However, treachery with permitted bank and bond fraud, rigged financial markets, naked short ambushes, flash crashes, and lawsuits that convert criminal procedures into standard low business costs all have resulted in profound consequences.

U.S. States Start Shutting Down Gold Bullion Dealers / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Berwick

If you don't own gold yet, you might really want to hurry up and get some. We keep saying it, but this time it's not just because physical precious metals are getting incredibly scarce. Purchasing gold may become outright illegal if what's going on in Connecticut is any indication. Even if Connecticut's plan to track all gold sales isn't a harbinger for a modern day Roosevelt-like ban on gold ownership, it will at the very least drive gold bullion dealers out of business with the cost of complying with the new regulation. That will create artificial scarcity in Connecticut and could set a precident for other US States.

Buy Gold NOW! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

You've undoubtedly read about the dramatic increase in demand for gold and silver bullion products since the big correction two weeks ago. Supply has gotten tight, premiums are rising, and inventory is hard to come by, especially for certain silver products.

But it's worse than you may know. Many of these reports come from the retail side of the business, including those from sovereign mints. This information is indicative, but more important is the activity among the wholesalers. It's possible the retail trade is just experiencing a giant bottleneck, which would come with a different set of conclusions than if behind the scenes the wholesale industry is seeing net sales.

Gold's Recovery Rally Appears to be Faltering / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

FOLLOWING a dip during Asian trading, the gold price climbed back above $1470 per ounce Tuesday morning in London, broadly in line with where it was a day earlier, with China's markets shut for this week's Labor Day holiday.

Silver ended the morning in London around $24.40 an ounce, also little-changed from a day earlier, while other commodities and stock markets failed to hold onto gains from earlier in the day, while US Treasuries gained.

Has Gold Bullion Price Hit Rock Bottom? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: As is quite evident from the past couple months, investing in gold can be rather volatile. Clearly, the huge sell-off in the price of gold bullion over the past couple of weeks has shocked some people; an interesting result has been the reaction from the retail public, as many are now buying gold bullion in record amounts.

Last week, the United States Mint actually ran out of the smallest American Eagle gold coin, and sales to India were 20% higher than the previous record, according to Standard Chartered PLC. Clearly, physical demand remains strong for gold bullion. (Source: Roy, D., et al., “Gold Rout for Central Banks Buying Most Since 1964: Commodities,” Bloomberg, April 25, 2013.)

Gold and Silver, When Will the Bottom Be? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Rambus_Chartology

In this weekend report I would like to answer some questions presented at the forum this weekend. First lets look at silver and see what the charts are telling us especially after last weeks price action. Lets start with a daily look that shows the downtrend channel that began back in October of last year. You can see all the different chart patterns we’ve been following during this delcine. You can see what happens when a strong support rail gives way. The bulls were exhausted and the bears took charged and moved the price down to the 22 area where we are getting our first counter trend rally after the breakout.

Gold Traders and Investors Get Ready To Rumble! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

On April 12th I wrote a blog post titled Precious Metals Melt-Down, and How To Manage It.I talked about how gold, silver and gold mining stocks have been flying under the media radar for over a year and that they were not catching the attention of traders, investors and the public anymore. I also said it would take some sharp price action (breakdown or rally) for it to be front and center again on TV, Radio and Newspapers.

Gold's Plunge Ultimately Healthy for Precious Metals Sector / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Market volatility sets the stage for price upswings as well as down, according to Michael Gray, equities analyst of Macquarie Capital Markets, and the recent gold price drop should be seen as a "pause" in the bull market. Management teams are pausing as well, to focus on earnings and shareholder return, rather than growth. In this interview with The Gold Report, Gray says this is the time to buy the best companies you can while they are discounted to fire sale prices, and he offers several names in jurisdictions from South and North America in the junior explorer space.

 

The Gold Report: On April 15, gold dropped to a two-year low as panic selling set in across many mine commodities. Was this the larger players showing the retail market who is in control or was it inevitable?

Gold is Down… This is What Comes Next... / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: Gold recently hit a 19-month low, surprising gold bugs and inflation hawks. A particular government bond may be next.

Bonds and gold often move in opposite directions. It’s not hard to see why. Gold is viewed as an inflation hedge, and bonds sell off at even a whiff of higher consumer prices.

Gold Getting Support from Retail Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

GOLD started the week by edging higher Monday, trading around $1475 per ounce by lunchtime in London, as stocks also gained, US Treasuries were broadly flat and the Euro edged higher against the Dollar following news that Italy's borrowing costs have fallen.

Strong demand for physical gold from private households meantime continues to cause bottlenecks and price premiums.

OIL accelerated higher on Thursday, and more importantly closed well above the upper parallel trend-line of a base channel. That's a very strong indication of an impulsive recovery, as this break (circled) usually occurs in the middle of a wave three of a five wave rally.

Bad News for Copper Bulls, Trouble in China / Commodities / Copper

By: Investment_U

Jason Jenkins writes: There’s been a lot written about gold over the past two weeks and with good reason. But let’s be clear about something…

In our current environment, governments printing absorbent amounts of money will not translate into high inflation. And if you play gold strictly as an inflation hedge, you will get burned.
