Gold, Crude Oil And The CRB Index Approaching Final Bottom / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJune has been the month of major bottoms. Stocks and gold have already formed major yearly cycle lows. Now it's the CRB's turn to put in a major three year cycle bottom. This bottom will almost certainly form well above the 2009 low, establishing a pattern of higher lows and setting up for what I believe will be an extreme inflationary scenario over the next two years, culminating in a parabolic spike much higher than the one in 2008.

Gold Still At Risk of a Large Down Move Before Rallying / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: David_Banister

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has been busy consolidating in what I believe will be a 13 Fibonacci month Primary wave 4 correction.  The Gold bull market I’ve been following since 2001 is a likely 13 year bull cycle that will end in 2013 or 2014 depending on how you count.  This current correction pattern is working off a 34 Fibonacci month rally that took Gold from 681 to 1923 at its ultimate highs.  Last fall I warned about the parabolic run likely ending in the 1908 ranges and for investors to position themselves accordingly.

Gold Hits Post-Fed Low, But Supported by Central Bank Buying Supports / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe WHOLESALE MARKET gold price fell further Thursday in London, falling hard to 8-session lows at $1587 per ounce following last night's "no change" decision from the Federal Reserve on new US quantitative easing.

Major-government bond prices pushed higher, but the Euro currency retreated, down nearly 1¢ from its post-Fed high to trade back down at $1.2650.

Gold and Silver Price On the Verge of a Huge Move! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver have taken more of a back seat over the past 12 months because of their lack of performance after topping out in 2011. Since then prices have been trading sideways/lower with declining volume. The price action is actually very bullish from a technical standpoint. My chart analysis and forward looking forecasts show $3,000ish for gold and $90ish for silver in the next 18-24 months.

Gold Becomes a Tier 1 Asset Class for Banks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Vin_Maru

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMisdirection by MSM as Gold Moves Towards The Banking System

Despite what the Main Stream Media (MSM) or “Financial Pundits” tell you, the gold bull market is far from over.  In fact, it is just starting, in our opinion.  While the misdirected financial world tell you that gold is in a bubble and it has burst, the central bankers and government organizations all know it is far from over.  In fact, gold is moving towards the banking system and not away from it.  We all know that many central banks are now net buyers of gold and their holdings are increasing as their need to diversify away from risky assets and foreign bonds only grows.

Oil Price Differentials: Caught Between the Sands and the Pipelines / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Marin_Katusa

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research writes: One of oil's most important characteristics is its fungibility, which means that a barrel of refined oil from Texas is equivalent to one from Saudi Arabia or Nigeria or anywhere else in the world. The global oil machine is built upon this premise – tankers take oil wherever it is needed, and one country pays almost the same as the next for this valuable commodity.

Is There A Fair Market Price For European Energy? / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe coming of "energy market liberalization" in Europe was a slow and cumbersome, top down process which started in the 1980s, surfing on the Neoliberal wave launched by the Thatcher-Reagan duo, but EML was not a Commission buzzword until well into the 1990s. Today it is everywhere - now called EMR or energy market regulation, that is de-regulation - and not only private consumers, but industrial users are beginning to say no because they fear a chaotic, high priced energy future.

Gold Stocks, How Undervalued? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article is really about potential energy. The coming gold stock mania is gathering essential potential ahead of the most exciting capital growth opportunity we may witness in our lifetimes. As if this was not valuable enough, it will occur as other assets continue to devalue. This is the role of gold for investors in a crisis. For the banks it may well assist them to regain confidence once it is completely lost.

Gold at Increasing Risks of Following Broad Market Lower / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe outcome of the Greek vote at the weekend was not favorable for the markets, or for Precious Metals in particular. This is because it did not precipitate an immediate worsening of the acute crisis in Europe, and thus did not create the pressure needed to bring forward the major QE that must eventually come in order to delay Europe's eventual complete collapse. Why then have markets not caved in already? - because investors are "smoking the hopium pipe" and waiting for the Fed to pull a rabbit out of the hat at Wednesday's FOMC meeting, by making positive noises to the effect that QE3 is ready to be rolled out. What is likely to happen instead is that they will come out with the same old line about "being ready to act when the SHTF" but other than that remain vague and non-commital. If this is what they do then markets are likely to throw a tantrum and sell off, and the charts are indicating that it could be hard.

Rising Eurozone Yields Will Push Gold Towards the Monetary System / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Simit_Patel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA trend I've been focusing on lately are the signs we are seeing of gold returning to the monetary system. Consider the signs:

1. Central banks continue to increase their purchases of gold, having become net accumulators of gold since 2009. The central bank of Kazakhstan purports to have 20% of its reserves in gold.
2. Banking standards from Basel III, an international banking institution, may be changing so as to give banks that hold gold a higher score.
3. The European Redemption Pact, an agreement to consolidate excess debt in the Eurozone, is allegedly discussing the idea of issuing Eurobonds that would be partially backed by gold.
4. In the United States, states like Utah are moving to restore gold's status as an officially recognized form of money.

Gold Stocks Comparing the 2012 Bottom to Past Bottoms / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark Twain said that history doesn't repeat itself but it rhymes. This is also true in the markets. No bull or bear market or particular event is ever the same. Yet, because there are similarities, the prudent analyst always studies history. When trying to foresee bottoms and tops we always compare current conditions (price action, sentiment, fundamentals) to past conditions. We continue to believe that the recent bottom in precious metals markets falls into a group of major bottoms that includes 2000-2001, 2005 and 2008. In today's piece we examine how these markets evolve following such bottoms which hopefully can give us an idea of what to expect in the coming weeks and months.

Prepare for the Pivot Point in the Gold Stocks Exploration Cycle / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

 

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistorically, major gold exploration has occurred when the Dow was down and out. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, geologist and Exploration Insights writer Quinton Hennigh talks about the coming gold rush and what that could mean for existing companies.

 

The Gold Report: While the NYSE Arca Gold BUGS Index (HUI) is up a bit from its May low, it is still lagging the price of gold and not living up to expectations based on the role it has traditionally played as a safe haven for investors. Are we close to a turning point in that dynamic?

Commodities Demand Speed Up or Slow Down--Don't Exit the Highway / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it comes to investing, wise managers are like good drivers, constantly evaluating the environment, looking for signs to step on the gas or slow down. A positive signal received recently came from Goldman Sachs, when the firm recommended "stepping back into the markets" in its latest Commodity Watch. Goldman is anticipating a 29 percent return for the S&P GSCI Enhanced Commodity Index over the next 12 months and suggests investors might want to increase their position in commodities.
