Gold and Silver Futures Beyond the Madness / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

World silver spot prices are determined by a once sacred, but now inept, process. While the evolution of futures contract for the modern age helped facilitate the industrial revolution, it has now been completely usurped and abused. This is especially the case in gold and silver, even to the point where confidence in this market threatens to turn the world financial system upside down.

Why Buy Fracking Stocks and Sell Gold Holdings / Commodities / Fracking

By: The_Energy_Report

Chen Lin, author of What is Chen Buying? What Is Chen Selling?, goes wherever he sees returns. In the summer, he bought mining stocks when the yellow metal hit $1,200 per ounce. Now, he's trading in his gold names and moving into the fracking space after a three-year hiatus. In this interview with The Energy Report, Lin names the companies he's buying to play a likely energy sector bottom and tells investors to actively manage their portfolios in the coming stock-picker's market.

Gold Price Medium-Term Outlook / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

In our previous essay we took a closer look at the situation in silver and mining stocks (precisely: SLV and GDX ETFs) and discussed how it may translate into the precious metals market. As we wrote in the summary:

(...) when we factor in the impact of (...) silver's cyclical turning point, which is just around the corner, and the fact that the short-term resistance lines have already been reached in case of the GDX ETF, we can presume that the top of the recent upward move in the precious metals may be already in (or is very close to being in).

The Outlook for Gold Minder Mergers and Acquisitions / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

It's no secret that mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity in the mining sector is in the dumps. According to PWC, deal volume in the first half of 2013 declined 31% as compared to the same period last year. Deal value declined 74%. Excluding Glencore's $54 billion acquisition of Xstrata in 2012, deal value is still down 21%. A recent Bloomberg article noted that the volume of acquisitions valued at less than $1 billion is at an eight-year low while the volume of deals in Q3 was the lowest since Q4 of 2004. However, some deals are taking place and in order for speculators and investors to capitalize, they will need to keep a discerning eye, just like potential suitors.

Gold Stocks Tricks and Treats / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

No matter how elaborate an investor's Halloween costume is, the gold space isn't handing out much in the way of treats this year. While Encompass Fund Managers Malcolm Gissen and Marshall Berol don't agree on the timeline for gold's recovery, they have faith that it will come. In the meantime, their focus is on companies that are in production, generate cash flow and have top-notch management teams. They also dig into their treat bag for names in the energy sector and other metals in this interview with The Gold Report.

The Gold Report: It's almost Halloween and we remain in the clutches of a tricky market for junior resource equities. What are your perspectives on how long it's going to take before investors see another treat-filled year like 2010?

What NOT to Do When Investing in Gold Miners / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Casey_Research

By Eric Angeli, Investment Executive, Sprott Global Resource Investments

Precious metals miners are the most volatile stocks on earth. They're so volatile that investors often forget that underneath those whipsawing stock prices lie real businesses. But even many of those who consider themselves old pros in natural-resource investing tend to get one thing wrong. Eric Angeli, an investment executive with Sprott Global Resources and protégé of legendary resource broker Rick Rule, explains how not to fall into the "top-down" trap…

Do Oil Stocks Have Better Upside Potential Than Crude Oil Price? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

In the previous week the price of crude oil not only dropped below the psychological barrier of $100, but also reached a new four-month low of $95.95. On the other hand, the buyers managed to push light crude higher at the end of the last week. Earlier this week we saw further improvement and the price climbed to almost $99 per barrel.

Taking the above circumstances into account, you are probably wondering what impact they had on oil stocks. Before we examine the current situation with the oil stock index, let’s focus on the relationship between the WTI and the XOI in the short term.

Elliott Wave Outlook For Crude Oil And Copper / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Gregor_Horvat

Crude oil is trading lower and based on latest decline through 100 mark and down 96.00 we suspect that larger picture on this market is changing. For now we will focus on current structure which is showing a completed wave B around 103.00 level followed by recent push lower with accelerating price action through 100 mark which we think it was wave (iii), so decline should then be made by five waves down. As such, we think that bounce from the low is just another correction within downtrend. We are talking about wave (iv) that is pointing lower for wave (v), towards 95, 94 zone.

QE + Desperation = Higher Gold Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DeviantInvestor

The Setup

A century ago bankers created the plan for a U.S. central bank, bought enough votes to get it passed into law, encouraged deficit spending, government debt, and extracting the interest payments from taxpayers. The process has worked well for the bankers.

Weak US Data See Gold and Silver Rise on "Ugly Truth" of Fed Policy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

BOTH gold and silver rose Wednesday lunchtime in London, as the day's widely-expected "no change" decision from the US Federal Reserve was preceded by weak US data.

The private-sector ADP Payrolls report said the US economy added only 130,000 jobs last month, rather than the 150,000 analysts forecast.

Gold Hits Shanghai Discount to London on "Money Market" Fall-Out / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The PRICE of London settled gold bounced to $1348 per ounce Tuesday morning, halving an earlier 0.9% drop after China's most active gold contract closed below that world benchmark for the first time in 2013.

Overnight trade was "very dull" according to one dealing desk.

Dollar gold then dropped $12 per ounce in 10 minutes, hitting a low of $1341 – some 1.5% beneath Monday's new 5-week high.

Gold Buying Opportunity As Good As It Gets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Aden_Forecast

Many events moved the market this month. Gold demand was stable but more important, gold is getting a boost from the weaker U.S. dollar.

The U.S. dollar is now clearly bearish, and since gold and the U.S. dollar generally move in opposite directions, this is very bullish for gold. So is the fact the Fed's QE stimulus is currently expected to continue well into 2014.

Agricultural Commodities - Grow It, And They Will Eat It / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

"Build it, and they will come" has been the motivation for many dreams. Baseball fields, restaurants, and other follies have sprouted from belief in this concept. Much of the real estate industry of times now past lived by this philosophy. That worked until they did not come, and then the bankers came for the remains.

Gold and Silver Precious Metals Complex Caught in a Trap, Bull or Bear? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Rambus_Chartology

Many times, just before a big move is to occur, you will get a false breakout that can whipsaw you before you know what hit you. It gets everyone moving one way and then out of know where the price reverses direction leaving everyone shaking their heads and afraid to make a move. As you were just whipsawed your thinking is, I'm going to wait until I see a better setup. Does this sound familiar to you. The problem is the real trend is just starting and you are sitting on the sidelines waiting for a new entry point that gets higher and higher. Whipsaws are just part of the game we play and can be painful if not understood. One year ago we got a good whipsaw on the HUI when it broke back above the smaller H&S top, neckline #1, that looked like a real move to the upside when it happened. I got sucked into that one just like everyone else at the time because there was a nice double bottom that had formed that created the right side of the much bigger H&S top, neckline #2.

Gold And Silver From A Buddhist Perspective / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

“If you want to know your past, look into your present conditions. If you want to know your future, look into your present actions.” ~Buddhist Saying.

The cliché for that is, “you cannot know where you are going until you know where you have been.” One of the most direct applications of this wisdom of the ages is found in charts.

Left to the realities of supply/demand factors, gold and silver would be considerably higher, already. We can think of no other commodity situation with unprecedented demand and shrinking supply that has done anything else than drive price much higher. The fiat cartel will not allow reality to supplant their massive wealth-transfer Ponzi scheme, as it enters the final stages like a cancer consuming everything until inevitable death results from this banker faux-Kabuki theater.

Silver Price Powerful Technical Launchpad, Could Easily Hit $41 by Late 2014 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Silver has suffered a rough year, but its fortunes are changing.  In recent months its price has firmed at the convergence of multiple major support zones, a powerful technical launchpad.  Silver has soared in parabolic uplegs from the handful of similar past convergences, a very bullish omen.  And with silver languishing so low in its trading range relative to gold, it has enormous potential to catapult far higher soon.

After plummeting a brutal 39% in the first half of 2013, silver naturally remains deeply out of favor today.  Investors don’t want to touch it with a ten-foot pole, convinced silver will soon roll over to plumb ugly new depths.  Investors as a herd always hit peak bearishness after exceptionally-large selloffs, extrapolating the downtrend continuing indefinitely.  But when major lows are witnessed is exactly the wrong time to be bearish.
