The Gold Inflation Trade is On: Bernanke Has Broken the U.S. Dollar Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt may not seem like much happened yesterday, but a very important event occurred. Yesterday the dollar index breached 78.65. The reason that is significant is because 78.65 marked the intraday low of the prior daily cycle. A penetration of that level indicates that the current daily cycle has now topped in a left translated manner and a new pattern of lower lows and lower highs has begun. Any time a daily cycle tops in a left translated manner it almost always indicates that the intermediate cycle has also topped.

The Central Bankers' Gold Price Manipulation Footprints or "Fat Fingers"? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mario_Innecco

There has been a great deal of talk about intervention in the currency markets and especially in gold and silver of late. Zero Hedge has done a great job investigating the central banks' banker called the Bank for International Settlements or the B.I.S.. Yeasterday gold dropped almost $15 out of the blue and many in the mainstream are saying that it was a "fat finger" which happens when a trader or a broker input the wrong price and/or amount onto their trading systems thereby causing unusual price movements

Crude Oil Supply & Demand Outlook Remains Favorable for Producers / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy outlook for crude oil prices remains relatively unchanged since the beginning of 2012. Potential demand destruction brought on by persistently high oil prices should limit upside for oil prices.

That being said, don’t assume that US oil demand is collapsing because of elevated oil prices and sluggish economic growth.

Canola, the New Canadian Gold / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen last we visited on Agri-Foods, 2012 was declared Year of the Soybean. That certainly seems to be the way prices are acting. Since the beginning of 2012 the U.S. dollar price of soybeans has risen by near 28%, more than twice the performance of the S&P 500's 12%. Seems some farmers, particularly in the Midwestern U.S. soybean region, are beating the Street again. Importantly, such results are not an aberration. Since early 2007, a little more than five years ago, soybean prices are up more than a 100%, a quite favorable comparison to the S&P 500 being off by ~3%. Little wonder that Agri-Land prices have been so strong.

Critical Factors that will Impact Silver Market Price / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Steve_St_Angelo

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe fundamentals for silver today are even better than they were last year when its price and sentiment were higher.  Nevertheless, consumer affinity for precious metals has turned rather pessimistic presently.  This may be indicated by those who see a rise in the COMEX silver inventories as well as a drop-off in Silver Eagle purchases.  Furthermore, our favorite so-called precious metals analysts (more like Bears in a Bull’s skin) have come out of the woodwork to rub it in that the “GOLD BULL MARKET IS NOW OVER.”

Do Central Banks Still Love Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Despite experiencing a sharp sell-off on Wednesday, gold and silver prices fully recovered and gold even posted its best weekly gain since February. Both precious metals received support and climbed higher as more disappointing economic data hit the market, fueling speculation for additional Federal Reserve easing. Furthermore, central banks around the world continue to purchase safe-haven metals.

Return to the Gold Standard? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are times, my friends Michael Lewitt and Dr. Lacy Hunt agreed today at lunch, when the study of economics is best informed by a sound knowledge of history. Indeed, Michael's son wants to follow his father into the finance world, and Michael is starting him off in history. I have spent hours listening to Lacy stroll through economic history, detailing the path of economic thought from Fisher to Kindleberger to Minsky. The last few days have been one of those times when I realized how much I don't know and how much more there is to learn. Not only Lacy and Michael are here in Florida, but a long list of bright minds to learn from. James Rickards, who has recently written the tour de force book Currency Wars, Harry Dent, Doug Casey, Porter Stansberry, Greg Weldon, and John Williams of Shadow Stats, with whom I look forward to meeting (do I have questions for him!). And so many more.

Mad Cow Futures and Silver Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently confirmed the country’s fourth known case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy or BSE, which is popularly known as Mad Cow Disease. 

The highly publicized BSE case was discovered during a random test of a dairy cow carcass that was located at an animal rendering facility owned by Baker Commodities Inc., a business which removes dead animals from farms for processing into animal byproducts.

Dismal Gold and Silver Market Sentiment — Just What Dr. Bernanke Ordered / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Since the dramatic drops the silver market saw in May and September of last year, prices in the precious metals market have been suffering from an excess of negative sentiment. This adverse perception is weighing on metal prices and keeping investor demand at bay.

Furthermore, although investors have continued to buy physical silver, the overall quantity being purchased has declined significantly, resulting in reduced support for the metal’s price.

Invest in Africa Gold Stocks Now / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast year, Africa was the region that witnessed the strongest growth in gold-mining operations. In an exclusive interview with The Gold Report,Nana Sangmuah, managing director of research with Toronto-based Clarus Securities, expects that trend to continue and suggests some immediate smart investments in Ghana, Mali, Liberia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

 

The Gold Report: Gold consultancy GFMS, which is now owned by Thomson Reuters, recently published its 2012 Gold Survey. GFMS predicts that before the end of 2012, the yellow metal will likely reach above its all-time nominal high of $1,920/ounce (oz) in September 2011. The catalysts include inflation concerns and sovereign debt problems in Europe, especially Spain. What are your thoughts on these predictions and conclusions?

Global Gold Supply / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEver since the beginning of gold’s bull market, this metal’s economic balance has come under intense scrutiny.  Demand has been on the rise as more and more investors have embraced gold as a store of wealth.  And the supply chain has done its best to meet this growing demand.

However considering gold’s sharply rising price over the last decade, it is clear that this market has been experiencing a major structural imbalance.  And the supply side of the equation has proven to be a fascinatingly volatile realm, making it quite difficult to set the scale.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed is transferring immense wealth from the middle class to the most affluent, from the least privileged to the most privileged.”Mark Spitznagel, Universa Investments L.P., 4/19/12

Since late February, 2012, The Cartel* has ground Gold and Silver Bullion and the Mining Shares Prices Down. This is especially frustrating for those invested in Mining Shares, because they have been Technically “Due” for a Powerful Breakout for weeks. (As “Paper” Securities, Mining Shares are especially susceptible to Cartel Price Suppression.)

Gold takes a Spring Break / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: William_Bancroft

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been a range of intelligent analytical opinions recently espoused, seeking to explain the action in the gold price this last six months. Whilst we have found articulations focused on consolidation most conducive, quality analysis has not just been found this side of the debate. Outside of lazy assertions that the gold bubble has burst, the debate has been heated but useful. It is always as such for gold. In the office we call the gold market the fox-hunting debate of the financial markets; very few participate but many have strong and at times heated opinions on the matter.

Gold’s Long-term Picture Remains Bullish / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLately, gold has been a disappointment to many investors while it has been mostly treading water. Gold has traded well beneath its all-time high of $1,924 an ounce on September 6th and well above its subsequent low near $1,520 which took place in late December. Many anticipated higher prices this year, but the year isn’t over yet, and neither is gold's long-term spectacular, secular bull market. We are now in one of those periods of consolidation that tries the souls of gold investors, tests their resolve and challenges their staying power. This is when the market takes a breather and adjusts to prepare for the next major move.
