Gold Swerves to Avoid the Death Cross / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Despite the turmoil in the world gold prices appear to be range bound between $1800.00/oz and $1550.00/oz. Many are predicting a rapid move north given that the money printing machines are working overtime, debasing all currencies with the eventual outcome being the appearance of the inflation monster. Some are even looking for a black swan event to provide the ignition required to set the precious markets on fire.

The Gold Stock Sector Is On Sale / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Fowler, senior mining analyst with Loewen, Ondaatje, McCutcheon, sees small- and mid-cap junior producers and developers as the "sweet spot" in the gold equities space, and provides a basket of names to consider in each space. In this exclusive Gold Report interview, he also shares his views on the irresponsibility of the "new paradigm" of large-scale financings now in vogue.

The Gold Report: Let's start with the changing risk picture in the gold space. Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd. (AEM:TSX; AEM:NYSE) and Kinross Gold Corp. (K:TSX; KGC:NYSE) are down by about 50% and 75%, respectively, from their 52-week highs. Both would once have been considered low risk. Are there no low-risk companies in the gold space today?

Endeavour Silver Provides Blueprint to Sprott’s Call to Action / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Eric Sprott, legendary gold and silver investor and chairman of Sprott Inc., famously issued an open letter to 17 of the world’s largest silver producers last year. The letter is well-known to the precious metals community because it challenged the mining industry to limit silver sales until prices increased. Unlike an OPEC style cartel, Sprott advocated that miners simply hold a portion of their cash reserves in the form of silver, in order to protect themselves and shareholders from irrational price corrections that take place too often in the silver market. Endeavour Silver not only heeded Sprott’s advice, but has already benefited from it.

Have Gold, Silver Entered a Bear Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor nearly the last five years, we have seen events that were the first of their kind in modern history, from the credit crunch to the East emerging at the expense of the developed world. The oil price has risen to $145, fallen to $35 and then steadily moved up to the current $108. We have seen sovereign debt levels rise to the point where, if they were individual's loans, the individual would have been bankrupted long ago. We have seen governments all over the world try to stimulate their economies to resurrect the spending powers of their embattled consumers. We have seen the developed world inundated with freshly printed money from central banks as deflation hit asset values reducing the velocity and the volume on money.

But while the yellow metal itself is great as a long-term hedge against turmoil and inflation, it's a lousy trading vehicle.

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLouis James, Casey Research writes: Economic crises signal that the current system isn't working as expected and needs improvement. When it comes to monetary systems, questioning their fundamentals can lead to doubts about whether the preferred medium of exchange will continue to be preferred for long. The large-scale whirlwind of economic trouble around the globe has pushed some to rethink the role of gold in the economy – and to actually move toward bringing it back.

Global Oil Market Needs Canada's Crude / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Canada's natural resources minister told delegates at the International Energy Forum in Kuwait that his country was on the cusp of becoming an "energy superpower." Canada ranks No. 6 in terms of global oil production, but much of its crude exists in the form of oil sands. European leaders are considering a measure that would classify oil sands as an environmental issue, prompting Canada to threaten to take the issue to the World Trade Organization. With the U.S. political system in a deadlock over Canadian crude, the Ottawa government is now working to convince the international community that the global market is in jeopardy if polices "discriminate against oil sands."

IEA Report Shows We Are Already In A 'Peak Oil' Context / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe most recent IEA Oil Market Report, for February, could be interpreted as bringing some good news to oil importer countries of the OECD group, for which the IEA is the "energy watchdog agency". Its report said that oil demand in the OECD group, at about 46.25 million barrels per day (Mbd) was still 1.25 Mbd below the 5-year average for oil consumption by the 30-nation developed economy group.

Massive Silver Price Spike Imminent / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Hubert_Moolman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver are very close to entering the mania phase of this bull market. In order for gold and silver to go into the mania phase, value has to be diverted from somewhere, and that “somewhere” is most likely stocks. Since 2000, there has been a correction in stock values, in real terms; however, nominally, stocks are still significantly high (close to its all-time highs).

Good As Gold! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI want to talk about gold today. Two weeks ago when spot gold was around 1,670.00 I wrote a piece entitled “When To Be Greedy” telling investors to buy. Since then we’ve survived a number of attempts to push the price lower and it is trading at 1,660.00 as I type. In short not much has happened and patience is running thin. In the meantime the dollar tried to rally and failed, the bond suffered a significant break down causing a real spike in interest rates and the Dow broke through significant resistance at 13,323.

Silver Goes Green / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Although gold receives most of the attention in the precious metals space, silver is an amazing metal itself. In addition to being a store of wealth, silver is used in everything from automobiles to alternative energy needs. Almost all electronics are configured with silver. However, the smelting process, which involves extracting silver from ores by burning off unwanted minerals and elements such as lead, can raise pollution concerns. This is an obstacle that Royal Silver Company is tackling at the source. Now, even the most environmentally conscious investor lacks a reason to not invest in silver.

Europe's QE3 Will Boost Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is pulling back to long term support and is able to be purchased at a discount. Investors may be seeking riskier assets due to fears of inflation and higher interest rates. Right now industrial metals such as copper/ nickel, oil and blue chips are outperforming due to their value of being hedges against inflation and represent the riskier assets.

Gold and Silver Stocks Are Decoupling from the Stock Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNormally, decoupling from the stock market is a good thing. In recent turbulent times, many have wondered if emerging markets would decouple or if gold stocks would decouple. Its surprising to see gold stocks decouple from a strong stock market. Many wondered if the sector would decouple from a weak market. Yet, the decoupling now could be positive long-term provided the decoupling continues when the stock market peaks just below the 2007-2008 highs.
