Investing in 2013: The Case for Palladium / Commodities / Palladium

By: Money_Morning

Tony Daltorio writes: Anyone who looks at precious metals when investing in 2013 will likely turn to gold and silver, maybe even platinum.

But there is another precious metal that is often overlooked, and should not be: palladium.

Palladium is mainly used in catalytic converters on gasoline-powered vehicles to limit the pollution these vehicles emit, just as its sister metal, platinum, is used in a similar fashion for diesel-powered vehicles.

Gold and Silver "Trapped" in Tight Range, Volatility Near Half-Decade Lows / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The GOLD PRICE eased $5 per ounce from a 2-day high in London trade Thursday morning, holding above $1676 as Asian stock markets closed lower but Europe held flat.

The Euro currency held onto a half-cent rise as the European Central Bank kept its key lending rate at a record low of 0.75% for the 15th month in a row.

Economic Winter Could Thaw Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Ian Gordon has said it before: we're on the edge of an economic maelstrom that will breathe new life into the gold exploration industry. While his cautionary tales may be beginning to sound like the boy who cried wolf, Gordon, the founder and chairman of Longwave Group, gives some persuasive evidence to support his doomsday scenario for the greater market. In this Gold Report interview, Gordon talks about what he forecasts as an unprecedented period of growth and investment in gold, which is just about to get underway as the market sinks.

 

The Gold Report: Ian, you believe that 2013 is likely to be an economic and financial disaster. But you have been saying similar things for years. Why is 2013 likely to be different?

Silver Price Manipulation, the Case Against JP Morgan / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Every now and then we receive questions about JP Morgan and the allegations that the company suppresses the price of silver. In our Q&A section we answered some of those concerns by replying to a question about JP Morgan and silver manipulation. In that answer we wrote the following:

Despite a (...)lawsuit accusing JPMorgan and HBSC of jointly controlling " over 85 percent of commercial net short positions ", a position inherited mainly from the liquidated Bear Stearns business, the CFTC seems inclined to drop any case it has against JPMorgan , making this the third case in a row that has not found proof of wrongdoing.

Gold Miners vs. the S&P - Surprising Conclusions / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Casey_Research

We often hear the claim that gold producers have not met investors' expectations for the past couple years. While there are many potential reasons for this, one explanation for their underperformance lies in the fact that producers diluted their share structures, leaving shareholders with smaller gains than they would have otherwise harvested.

Gold Lease Rates - What Changed in Swiss Gold Banking? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

What the Swiss banks' move away from unallocated accounts says about gold, and about banking...

Imagine you could sell someone something, but keep ownership of it, and then use it yourself, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault.

You could lend it out for interest, say, or raise loans of your own by pledging it as collateral. Or even sell it to raise cash when things get tight. And if your business fails entirely, the "owner" will just have to cue up with all of your other creditors, and be thankful with whatever small change is paid out by the courts.

Stock Market Strength "Taking the Shine Off Gold" / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

WHOLESALE PRICES for gold bullion hovered above $1670 per ounce Wednesday morning, broadly in line with where it started the week, while stocks and commodities were also little changed and the Euro eased against the Dollar ahead of tomorrow's European Central Bank interest rate decision.

Gold has failed to break through the $1700 an ounce barrier since falling through the level in December. Over the same period, most stock markets have rallied. The S&P 500 had its best January since 1997, touching a new five-year high, while the FTSE 100 had its best start to a year since 1989.

Why The IEA Wants High Priced Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

THE IEA' S NEWLY FASHIONABLE QUEST
Claiming his views "are not very fashionable", the Turkish-born chief economist of the IEA, Fatih Birol, also describes the IEA's annual flagship reports the World Energy Outlook as "designed and directed" by himself - and his WEO is obliged to reflect "unfashionable" theories and goals.

These new theories and goals are: universal energy supplies for all, and massive worldwide response to the crisis of global warming. Reconciling these two themes or memes needs high priced oil. Regarding the market price for oil, the IEA pitches for $175 per barrel; concerning new energy taxes in the form of carbon taxes "to fight global warming", taxes of $500 per tonne of CO2 on all fossil energy, possibly by 2020 or shortly after, are no problem for Fatih Birol.

Politicization, Currencies & Gold: The Lost Battle of Central Banks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: GoldSilver

Central banks have many losing battles ahead.

The world finds itself immersed in the depths of an economic crisis. This crisis however, is unlike any other experienced in recent history. What is at stake is the very foundation of our monetary system, the currency.

Today's unbacked fiat currency experiment is at the very root of an emerging global monetary problem. While the talk of "recovery" in recent months now populates headlines, the desperate actions of politicians and central bankers show the contrary.

Does China Still Love Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The recent price action in gold and silver has been frustrating for some people. Both precious metals logged gains last year, but continue to remain in consolidation mode. On the positive though, bullion demand is still providing support to prices.

Due to the vulnerabilities of the global financial system and numerous quantitative easing programs, several nations are increasing their gold holdings. According to Bloomberg and data from the Census and Statistics Department of the Hong Kong government, gold imports into mainland China from Hong Kong nearly doubled to an all-time high last year. China, the world’s second-largest economy and the biggest gold consumer, imported a record 834,502 kilograms (834.5 metric tons), including scrap and coins, in 2012. In comparison, the nation only imported 431,215 (431.2 metric tons) kilograms the previous year.

How to Profit From A Potential Doubling in Copper Prices / Commodities / Copper

By: DailyWealth

"I think copper has at least 50% upside from today's price..." legendary analyst Adrian Day told me recently.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see the price double by the end of the decade."

At one time, it was one of the most popular investment letters in America, with over 60,000 subscribers. And for a decade now, he has focused on commodities for customers of Adrian Day Asset Management.

Read This Before You Buy Oil Stocks / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: GrowthStockWire

"You have to buy the oil stocks," a so-called "expert" proclaimed on CNBC yesterday.

"They're under-owned, and the price of crude oil is running higher."

Oil stocks have indeed enjoyed a tremendous rally over the past few weeks. The Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE) is up more than 10% since the start of 2013. And the fund is just pennies away from making a new multi-year high.

Why Silver is Headed Back $50.00-an-Ounce / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The pieces of the puzzle are coming together nicely. As I have been expecting, small investors are running towards silver because gold has become too expensive for them. After all, to buy one ounce of gold it costs around $1,700. With the same amount of money, a small investor can buy upwards of 53 ounces of silver at its current price of $32.00 an ounce.

Gold Could Test Resistance After Consolidation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

WHOLESALE MARKET gold bullion prices rose above $1680 an ounce Tuesday morning in London, trading close to last week's high, as stocks, commodities and the Euro also gained and US Treasuries fell, following better-than-expected services sector data from Europe.

Silver meantime touched $32 an ounce for the first time this week.

"We will remain short term bearish [on gold] while resistance [around $1696 per ounce] caps," says Axel Rudolph, senior technical analyst at Commerzbank.

Why is a bond bull keen on investing in gold?

Why Global Gold Accumulation is Underway / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_J_Kosares

"Lenin was certainly right, there is no more positive, or subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency...The process engages all of the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner that not one man in a million is able to diagnose." -- John Maynard Keynes

Neither Keynes nor Lenin would have envisioned currency debasement on a global basis yet that is exactly where we find ourselves today. As mentioned in last month's The Gold Owners Guide to 2013, it is as if John Law had been reincarnated simultaneously in every major nation state in the world. At this stage, it is difficult to gauge the potential effects though, as you are about to read, there is plenty of speculation. Though the price of gold remained range bound this past January, global demand for coins and bullion has been anything but restrained. The U.S. Mint reports the highest monthly sales ever for the Silver Eagle in January and the highest monthly total for the Gold Eagle in over two years. Similarly ETF gold holdings are up about 12% since last August reflecting strong interest among financial institutions and funds. Though Keynes was right about currency debasement, he missed the mark on the public's ability to identify the problem. Apparently, a good many understand the problem all too well.

Why Buy Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DeviantInvestor

■Silver has no counter-party risk. It is not someone else's liability. Silver Eagles or Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins are recognized around the world and have intrinsic value everywhere. The same is NOT true for hundreds of paper currencies that have become worthless, usually because the government or central bank printed them to excess to pay the debts of governments that did not control spending.

The Bernanke Shock, Where is Germany's Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Peter_Schiff

The financial world was shocked this month by a demand from Germany's Bundesbank to repatriate a large portion of its gold reserves held abroad. By 2020, Germany wants 50% of its total gold reserves back in Frankfurt - including 300 tons from the Federal Reserve. The Bundesbank's announcement comes just three months after the Fed refused to submit to an audit of its holdings on Germany's behalf. One cannot help but wonder if the refusal triggered the demand.
