Gold and China: Where the Bulls and Bears Square Off / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo paraphrase the great Steve Martin, today’s investors are very passionate people and passionate people tend to overreact at times. An overreaction is exactly what’s happened in gold and global markets in recent weeks. While market bulls have been sniffing out data points to support their case, market bears have continued to take a glass-half-empty approach.

Stealth Bottom Coming in Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe struggle of the mining stocks has surprised many including us. We thought record profits and a bullish environment would catapult the miners out of a consolidation and into a major breakout. The perception of an enduring recovery and the endurance and persistence of the wall of worry stage has left the gold stocks unloved and under-owned and for far longer than we expected. We do have to remember that the miners exploded in 2009 and 2010 and it is normal for a bull market to spend months in consolidation.

Manipulation of the "Paper Gold" Market, "Worthless" Paper versus Physical Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Chapman

We have been in and around the gold markets for 53 years and conditions have certainly changed, driven mainly by market manipulation of all markets as a result of the Executive Order, which created the “President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.” Those who doubt that are either on the government payroll one way or the other, or you are just too dumb to understand what is really going on. In spite of these machinations and ignorant naysayers the bull markets in gold and silver are still alive and well. What you are seeing are paper markets and the use of derivatives to effect short-term pricing, especially when negative events are about to occur.

Calling Another Bottom in Gold and Silver Stocks Sector / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe last time I called an important bottom in the precious metals sector was on December 29, 2011 (as documented here). Well, it's time for another important bottom. I believe the late December lows in the precious metals (PM) sector were THE lows for the metals, for the GDXJ ETF (a rough representation of the junior Gold mining sector) and for silver stocks (as represented by the SIL ETF). The current bottom is much more important for those seemingly perpetual laggards, the senior Gold mining stocks.

Asia's Gold Future / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Alasdair_Macleod

For most of the last century the default currency for international settlements has been the US dollar. This has given America ultimate power over international trade. In recent months, the US wielded this power against Iran, making life extremely difficult for all Iranians. Importantly it has interrupted oil trade with India, China and Japan. Furthermore SWIFT, the Belgian-based international banking settlement agency, has halted all Iranian interbank transfers.

Randgold Highlights Mining Risk as Turkey Seeks Gold Bullion / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Eric_McWhinnie

On Thursday, gold prices declined to $1,642.50 per ounce, while silver fell nearly 90 cents to settle at $31.35. Both precious metals have declined over the past few weeks. While short-term corrections in bullion prices can be frustrating for investors, the pullback in miners has been even more pronounced. In the past month, the Market Vectors Gold Miners index declined almost 11 percent, while the Market Vectors Jr. Gold Miners index has fallen 14 percent. However, both indices fail to compare to the steep sell-off seen in Randgold Resources.

China Reaches Peak Coal / Commodities / Coal

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCoal presently supplies about 67% of China's commercial energy but its National Energy Administration, 21 March, released its five-year 2011-2016 plan for Chinese coal, which features a near-term peak, and then decline of coal in the energy economy. The world’s largest user and producer of coal intends to limit domestic output and consumption of the commodity by 2017, to reduce pollution and to curb reliance on this fuel, which also faces a rising number of supply problems from reserve depletion to coal import costs, infrastructure and transport needs.

"Beneath the Pacific Ocean's floor deep in the Japanese trench, tectonic plate boundaries slipped repeatedly, triggering one of the most severe earthquakes in recent history. The earthquake's epicenter lay off the eastern coastline of Japan near the Fukushima Prefecture. The plates' movements generated a tsunami that swiftly drove forward ranks of waves towards the earthquake-battered Japanese coast.

Bullish Outlook for Gold and Silver Stocks Sector Holds / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s tough being a lone voice saying that gold prices will go up when they have tumbled and the financial press is writing obituaries for the gold bull market. It’s also encouraging being a lone voice saying that gold prices will go up precisely because it means that the general sentiment is very bearish and this is what we see at major bottoms. Gold has gotten clobbered and silver has taken a beating as Treasury yields surged and markets are moved by optimism that a recovery has gained traction. Fears over an implosion in the Eurozone seem to have receded. February’s jobs report signaled a strengthening recovery. Greece’s widely expected default has momentarily taken Europe’s sovereign debt crisis off the radar screen. UBS’s Edel Tully has lowered the one-year price target of gold to $1,550 an ounce, a 12.7% downgrade.

Next-Generation Nuclear Power / Commodities / Uranium

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCan the nuclear industry sustain itself with a once-every-ten-years accident frequency? Absolutely not, says Tom Drolet, principal of energy consulting firm Drolet & Associates Energy Services Inc.
