Gold Bull Market Real Interest Rates Critical Metric / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research : There are many reasons why gold is still our favorite investment – from inflation fears and sovereign debt concerns to deeper, systemic economic problems. But let's be honest: It's been rising for over 11 years now, and only the imprudent would fail to think about when the run might end.

Is it time to start eyeing the exit? In a word, no. Here's why.

Gold New Rally Phase? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although spot gold remains stuck between a set of convergent support and resistance lines derived from the Mar 11 rally peak at $1717.36, my near-term pattern work argues that what looks like a coil is really the initiation of a new rally phase off of the Mar 22 low at $1631.89.

Game Changer for Gold and Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am not preaching to the converted however most if not all readers will know that the US banking system is in trouble as evidenced by QE1, QE2 and now suggestions of QE3. Governments would not offer or provide the monstrous bailouts and deposit guarantees unless this was the case. The European bank has also taken steps to prop up their banking system since 2008, with in excess of US$1.2T in new support in the past 4 months. This is a global phenomenon made necessary due to the gradual debt collapse, a deleveraging process that will persist for many years to come.

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI titled last month’s issue of this newsletter “Mining Stocks May Become the Big Play for the Second Half of 2012.” I wasn’t saying that it was time to buy them, but that I thought that when the correction they are in, which has been going on now since way back in September, came to an end they would likely put on a big performance through the rest of this year.

Silver, Gold, Gold Miner Stocks On The Rise? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Silver, Gold, Gold Miner Stocks On The Rise?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past couple months investors have been focusing on the equities market. And rightly so with stocks running higher and higher. Unfortunately most money managers and hedge funds are under performing or negative for the first quarter simply because of the way prices have advanced. New money has not been able to get involved unless some serious trading rules have been bent/broken (buying into an overbought market and chasing prices higher). This type of market is when aggressive/novice traders make a killing cause they cannot do anything wrong, but 9 times out of 10 that money is given back once the market starts trading sideways or reverses.

Did Gold Stocks Bottom Last Week? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold stocks have frustrated investors for several reasons. First, the sector has had a general inability to keep pace with Gold and that struggle has been particularly incensing over the last year in which Gold has gained. Second, the substantial rebound in the equity market has provided no lift. We know that the gold stocks can be vulnerable when Gold falls and when the stock market is plunging. Yet, the gold stocks did not respond as expected despite the reverse favorable conditions in the past year. In the words of a friend, these stocks couldn’t advance if a rocket ship landed up their ass! It is time to bail, right? Wrong! Considering the extreme negative sentiment and our technical work, we believe the market made an important long-term low last week.

Gold Bull Market Not Over, Depressed Stocks Primed to Take off / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is no indication on gold's long-term chart that its bullmarket is over, it appears to be simply pausing to consolidate after its sharp rise last year. Why should its bullmarket be over when the only solution to the global debt problem is to buy time by creating more debt which makes the problems even worse? It's true that "they" might throw in the occasional deflation scare as an arm twisting measure to justify bailouts and more QE etc, but other than that the course is set firmly in the direction of fiat worthlessness.

Silver Forming Head and Shoulders Bottom Pattern / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver is marking out a Head-and-Shoulders pattern that parallels the one forming in gold, but whereas the one in gold is classified as a Head-and-Shoulders continuation pattern, the one in silver is classified as a Head-and-Shoulders bottom. The reason for this difference is that the pattern in gold has formed not very far beneath the highs, and thus comparatively does not have much of a loss to reverse, whereas the pattern in silver has got quite a lot to reverse, as can be seen by comparing the 15-month chart for silver shown here with the 1-year charts for gold presented in the Gold Market update.

Gold and Silver Mining Stocks Approaching Most Oversold Level Since Start of Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jason_Hamlin

The following chart shows the performance of mining stocks (XAU) versus the broader stock market (S&P 500). This comparison is useful in identifying periods when mining stocks are oversold or overbought versus the stock market as a whole. As you can see from the long-term chart, mining stocks have been outperforming the S&P 500 over time with the expected volatility that is mostly confined within the upward-sloping trend channel.

Peak Oil Evasion Tactics Scraping The Barrel / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProbably well-intentioned but always ineffective oil saving plans, schemes and notions are reaching the limit of their low effectiveness, a rising number of indicators suggest. In a week where newswires tell the story of French election-oriented attempts by the outgoing Sarkozy government to persuade the IEA's main powerbrokers to release oil stocks, and shave a few cents off the price of car fuel in time for Sarkozy's re-election bid, this is schizophrenically opposed by the same French government. It is pressurizing other EU governments to further tighten their oil embargoes on Iran.

Gold Blossoming in Colombia / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImpressed by Colombia as a country and as a setting for exciting mining and geological opportunities, Paul Harris relocated from England, by way of Chile, and hasn't looked back. In an exclusive interview with The Gold Report, the publisher of the Colombia Gold Letter offers hope for the near future.

The Gold Report: Colombia's mining and energy sectors received about $12 billion (B) in foreign direct investment (FDI) in 2011, making it the largest recipient of FDI relative to gross domestic product of any country in Latin America. Although there are excellent geological potential and dozens of junior mining companies exploring Colombia, not one of those juniors has successfully permitted a mine. Does the country risk losing some of that free-flowing capital if it doesn't start to permit mines?

Should Investors Activate Gold and Silver Airbags? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Earlier this week, a fully loaded Brinks truck carrying between $3 million and $5 million in uncirculated loonies and toonies crashed on a snow covered highway in Ontario, Canada. The truck crossed the centre line and slammed into a rock, launching the coins in every direction. The accident is an unfortunate event, but can serve as an analogy about today’s fragile fiat currencies.

Rotation into Gold Miners? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

To state the obvious, the gold miners definitely are the forgotten sector of the rally from the October 2011 low in the S&P 500 at 1074.77 to this week's high at 1419.15. This rally amounts to a 32% climb, compared to the performance of the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX), which is down 2.7% since its October 2011 low.
