By: Submissions

Plunge in Family Net Worth Supports Portfolio Gold Diversification / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Pete_Grant

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

The Fed’s triennial Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF) came out last week and the results were nothing short of astounding. The data show that the Great Recession wiped out nearly 40% of the typical American family’s net worth.

“Data from the 2007 and 2010 SCF show that median income fell substantially and that mean income fell somewhat faster, an indication that income losses, at least in terms of levels, were larger for families in the uppermost part of the distribution. Overall, both median and mean net worth also fell dramatically over this period—38.8 percent and 14.7 percent, respectively.”

Gold and Silver Price Discovery: At and Despite the Margins / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In most markets, price is discovered “at the margin” or from the transactions themselves. For example, in the real estate market, an entire block of homes can be valued by appraisers and agents based on the price at which the last house sold.

When it comes to precious metals prices, if discovery at the margin was a legitimate factor, the silver market would soon see much higher prices or it would at least reach a fairer equilibrium price that currently prevails.

Silver Metal Now and a Golden Traveler's Check / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Cheap Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold stocks have recovered sharply following last month’s panic-like capitulation plunge.  But this embattled sector still remains incredibly cheap relative to prevailing gold levels, which drive gold miners’ profits and hence ultimately their stock prices.  While it is very challenging psychologically to buy in deeply-out-of-favor sectors, the panic-like gold-stock bargains out there today are simply amazing.

Gold Stock Investors Prepare for a White Knuckle Ride / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the early days of this bull market in precious metals we all did well as most mining stocks sprang to life and made considerable gains. The quality producers made spectacular gains and the turkeys made moderate gains. It has changed a lot since then, the mining indices such as the HUI* were outperforming gold prices by leaps and bounds, however, for the last few years they have failed to keep pace with gold and indeed still lag behind as evidenced by the chart below.

The Difference Between Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Simit_Patel

Many investors in the precious metals community operate from the perspective that there is no real difference between gold and silver; that both are monetary assets, with silver simply being a less expensive, more abundant, and more volatile version of gold. There is some truth to that, although I think it is important to note that the differences. If one understands the differences, it becomes easier to understand when silver may be overvalued, and why the gold/silver ratio could rise greatly. For these reasons, I personally invest much more in gold and gold stocks than in silver.

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Spain recently became the fourth member of the euro to request a bailout since the beginning of the region’s insolvency crisis. The country stands to receive as much as 100 billion euros ($125 billion) in order to prolong the life of its current banking system. It is debt trying to fix more debt. “The loan amount must cover estimated capital requirements with an additional safety margin, estimated as summing up to 100 billion euros in total,” a Eurogroup statement said. With rescues drafted for Greece, Ireland, Portugal and now Spain, the European Union and the International Monetary Fund have committed nearly half a trillion euros to finance European bailouts.
