Gold Price Slips But Up 13 Days Running on "Stop-Loss Fiesta" / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The PRICE OF GOLD fell $10 per ounce from a new 5-week high in London on Wednesday morning, but stood higher for the 13th session running amid what one trading desk called "a stop-loss fiesta".

"There [is] still a lot of short positioning to unwind," says a note from finance and refining group MKS in Geneva, "with very little seen in terms of any pullbacks."

China Demand Not Behind Commodities Boom? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Frank_Holmes

There’s no denying China’s massive economic growth over the past decade, as the country recorded an average GDP of more than 10 percent per year. In only seven years, China’s economy doubled; in 13 years, it tripled.

With this incredible expansion, China began to import commodities at an incredible pace. In 2000, the country imported only 70 million tons of iron ore; today, it’s more than 10 times that amount, at 763 million tons. Copper imports increased dramatically too, growing from 1.6 million tons in 2000 to more than 4 million tons per year today, according to BCA Research data.

Gold - 'Never Mind', Quantitative Easing Is A Time Bomb / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Submissions

John Ing writes: "Never mind" was how Gilda Radner's character, Emily Litella ended her rants on Saturday Night Live. Ben Bernanke should have said "never mind" after threatening the Fed might take the punch bowl away. Within days, following a panic in the markets he later recanted fearing that the hangover could be worse. The threat of the end of easy money was enough to knock a third off the gold price including a collapse of $150 in only two trading days in April. The prospect of higher rates caused big losses just after the Dow and Standard & Poors reached new highs. While the Fed's addiction to cheap money eased some of the pain from the financial crises, surprisingly not enough money was printed to sustain global growth. Instead trillions flowed into riskier investments inflating a string of asset bubbles in the financial world, destabilizing normalized markets as investors chased stocks and bonds in the search for higher returns.

Gold Price Now Heavy After Historically Strong 1-Month Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The PRICE OF GOLD eased back to $1330 per ounce Tuesday morning in London, dropping 0.7% from yesterday's 5-week highs as commodities slipped with major government bond prices.
 
Asian stock markets rose as the Japanese Yen edged lower. European stocks and US equity futures crept 0.2% higher.
 
"We believe there is a strong element of short covering behind the recent buying in gold," says one broker's note, pointing to the record-large number of bearish bets held by speculative traders in gold futures.

Separating Junior Gold Stocks Winners From Loser / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Gold juniors need to get back to the basics, says Eric Coffin, and it is going to take large discoveries to get the market excited again. In this interview with The Gold Report, the publisher of Hard Rock Analyst explains how the new economics of gold production require investors to concentrate on companies with three specific qualities, and names companies and the regions that could generate breakout projects.

The Gold Report: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke indicated last month that the Fed would begin to taper quantitative easing in September. The equity markets responded quite negatively to this. In the wake of this response, do you think the Fed is committed to this new policy?

Best Days for Gold Still Ahead / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Pento

The prevailing mantra on Wall Street is that gold's bull market is now over and it's time to bury precious metals as an investment theme for the indefinite future. Their rational is based on the belief that many investors held misguided fears during the credit crisis about a breakout of massive inflation and economic chaos, which drove gold to nearly $2,000 per ounce. Of course, (the perma-bulls claim) those worries have now completely failed to materialize and will never be a genuine risk in the future.

World's Next Major Crude Oil Find in Mineral Rich Australia? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Australia's massive mineral exports allowed it to weather the global recession, which began in 2008, quite nicely.

The U.S. government's Energy Information Administration noted in its country's analysis for Australia, "Australia, rich in hydrocarbons and uranium, was the world's second largest coal exporter in 2011 and the third largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporter in 2012. Australia is rich in commodities, including fossil fuel and uranium reserves, and is one of the few countries belonging to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that is a significant net hydrocarbon exporter, exporting over 70 percent of its total energy production according to government sources. Australia was the world's second largest coal exporter based on weight in 2011 and the third largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in 2012."

London-listed gold equities followed, with shares in Randgold Resources – tipped today by analysts at both J.P.Morgan and Morgan Stanley as better able to cut costs and avoid write-downs than competitors – rose 2.5%.

Gold Derivative Distortions Perfect Storm / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The purpose of this article is to explain how derivatives have distorted gold prices with particular reference to the US futures markets. This will enable us to anticipate the price effect when the distortion is eventually unwound.

When a derivative is created it diverts supply and demand from the underlying commodity. If it is then hedged into the underlying commodity the price effect is the same as if it was a simple commodity transaction. Enter the “honest speculator”, who is neither producer nor consumer, but seeks to profit by trading derivatives for profit, without an intention of taking delivery. The speculator who does not roll his positions into subsequent future contracts brings forward demand or supply only to reverse the price effect later in the life of the contract. In this case speculators provide liquidity with no lasting price distortions.

President Obama Could Give Middle Class a Bailout with Oil SPR Release / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

QE Fueled Market Mania

It was another crazy day of speculation in the gasoline and oil markets, typical of the QE fueled shenanigans that happen every day for the last month in equities and oil. Speculators ran WTI up to $109 a barrel, and the RBOB contract up as high as $3.16 a gallon on Friday. So expect prices at the pump to continue to rise due to wild, rampant speculation in the futures market.

Gold And Silver – When Precious Metals Bottom Is Irrelevant To Your Financial Health / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

As ardent as Precious Metals, [PMs], buyers are, a good many of them do not comprehend their importance. Everyone agrees they are resoundingly better than any fiat currency, as history has amply proven. However, few consider the why PMs are so anathema for all central bankers.

There was a time in this country when gold and silver were the coin of the realm. Actually, they still are! The Coinage Act of 1792 has never been repealed, and that means, by law, gold and silver are, [read section 20], the current money of account of the United States. There is a very potent message within that Act, and like we said last week, Knowledge is not of value, using it is.

Strong Contrarian Buy Signal on Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Contrarian thinking is easy but successful contrarian investing is difficult. Most amateur contrarians neglect that the crowd is right most of the time. It’s only at market turning points where the crowd is wrong and contrarians are right. In recent weeks the voices against precious metals have not only appeared but grown. Weeks ago we debunked a rant of a widely followed mainstream blogger and commentator. He was ranting against the gold stocks and his rant was devoid of any analysis or actionable information. Meanwhile, more mainstream calls to sell gold stocks have popped up and during what likely will be exactly the most inopportune time to sell.

Gold Short Squeeze / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

Futures speculators have responded to this year’s extreme bearishness plaguing gold by amassing wildly-outlying record short positions in it.  These huge and highly-leveraged bets can only be unwound by buying gold futures to cover the shorts.  As gold continues rebounding out of its recent hyper-oversold lows, the futures traders on the short side will have to buy.  This will likely fuel a massive short squeeze.

Major short squeezes are the stuff of market legends, rare and extreme events.  Whenever a price falls particularly far and fast, traders wax exceptionally bearish on it.  They extrapolate the downside action continuing indefinitely, and some want to play that momentum.  So they reverse the usual trade of buying low then selling high.  They effectively borrow the asset from someone else to sell it in the open market.

U.S. Gasoline Supplies Highest for July Period Since 1992 / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: EconMatters

Refiners actually try to keep low inventories to have illusion of ‘tighter’ markets

Gasoline supplies had a substantial build in inventories, up 3.1 million barrels, and looking back at the EIA data, July is in the heart of the summer driving season, and refineries run at their highest utilization rates. Well, there has never been a period in July where inventories are as high in gasoline supplies as currently exists in recent energy statistics. We have to go all the back to 1992 to find supplies for the July period higher than they are right now, and it isn`t by much.
