Will the Greek Bailout Make Gold, Silver Rise or Fall? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome investors may feel that the Eurozone debt crisis has been resolved by the bailout from the other E.U. members. Whether it has or has not, is irrelevant to the price of gold, or is it?

There are still hurdles in the way, such as the acceptance by private Greek Bondholders of the 53% haircut and low interest rates they will get until 2015. But let's assume the best and believe they'll accept the terms. The first market reactions were to move up and hold new levels without any effervescence in any market. The moves had largely been discounted already. Yes, we're seeing a shift of money from the U.S. Treasury market to the euro but not in large amounts yet. In this piece we look at the overall prospects for the precious metals.

Buffet Mischaracterizes Gold’s Bull Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Once again, someone famous and once again Warren Buffet is dismissing Gold. In comparing it to the bubbles in housing and Internet stocks, he feels he’ll ultimately be vindicated. In his annual letter to shareholders, Buffet trashed Gold as a bubble that is being driven by fear of other asset classes. He believes that those who buy today only do so because they believe the “ranks of the fearful will grow.”

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreg McCoach, publisher of The Mining Speculator, feels gold is ultimately headed above $6,000/oz and silver into the hundreds of dollars and those who aren't paying attention now are missing their best opportunity to buy before the frenzy begins in earnest. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he spells out the reasons for his optimistic projections and shares several of his favorite stories in the junior mining sector, which he believes is headed for much higher ground.

Gold, Silver and the U.S. National Bird / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBenjamin Franklin originally recommended the turkey as the national bird for the U.S. Today, we imagine that after considering the situation being created by the current regime in Washington he might recommend the ostrich as a more appropriate national symbol. With its head buried in the sand to avoid facing critical issues, the U.S. may be ignoring the vulnerabilities in today's world. For those that are not familiar with the old story of the ostrich with its head in the sand, we submit the following picture of the proposed new U.S. national bird.

Silver could be ready to move higher along with its shares next week / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

The metals have recently been consolidating their moves from the December lows and silver along with its mining shares are at a point which deserves watching. Both silver and its shares made bullish divergences at the end of last year and staged a stunning rally in the first month of 2012. Recently, prices have been consolidating those gains.

Fiat Paper Money Masters Palpable Fear of a Rise In Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jesse

“That paper money has some advantages is admitted. But that its abuses also are inevitable and, by breaking up the measure of value, makes a lottery of all private property, cannot be denied.” - Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Josephus B. Stuart, 1817

The fear in the money masters is palpable. Silence, darkness, and the fog of confusion are their most reliable allies.

Silver Price Could Double by Year End / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jason_Hamlin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWere you cursing at your computer screen when silver nearly tripled during the short 9 months from September 2010 to May 2011? Silver at $20 seemed like an insurmountable threshold for quite some time. This caused many silver investors to give up just prior to the ascent, completely missing the ride towards $50. I believe silver is about to offer a similar ride. While it is unlikely to match the 180% advance mentioned above, look for silver to make new highs in the coming months, with the potential to double to $65 by year end.

Record High Gold Prices Fail to Curb Global Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Despite a volatile year for gold prices in 2011, demand for the precious metal still remained strong. According to the latest World Gold Council’s annual report, gold demand totaled 4,067.1 tonnes, a slight increase from the prior year. Record low interest rates, inflation expectations and investment demand continued to drive the gold bull market.

Ultra Nat Gas ETF Approaching Resistance / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Today's pop in natural gas impacted the ProShares Ultra DJ UBS Natural Gas ETF (BOIL) positively, with the latter's price structure climbing above its February resistance line (green) and continuing towards a confrontation with more significant resistance at 14.50/55.

A close above 14.55 should trigger upside continuation and acceleration to 15.20/50. At this juncture, only a decline that breaks 13.50 will begin to compromise the timing of the upside breakout.

Gold and Silver Short-term Dip Still Likely / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe like Warren Buffett. We respect Warren Buffett. We’d love to sit and have lunch with him one day. As an investor, Warren Buffett is in a class all of his own. But the Oracle of Omaha just keeps bashing gold at every opportunity.

In an article published in Fortune Magazine, based on his upcoming annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letter, Buffett again dismissed the yellow metal. It is hard to argue with a man whose bank balance is a zillion times bigger than yours. Obviously he has been right plenty and has the bank balance to prove it. But meantime, all the while that he has been bashing gold, it has bulldozed its way up and gold bugs have been laughing all the way to the bank.

Silver Eagles Soar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn World War I severe material shortages played havoc with production schedules and caused lengthy delays in implementing programs. This led to development of the Harbord List - a list of 42 materials deemed critical to the military.

After World War II the United States created the National Defense Stockpile (NDS) to acquire and store critical strategic materials for national defense purposes. The Defense Logistics Agency Strategic Materials (DLA Strategic Materials) oversees operations of the NDS and their primary mission is to "protect the nation against a dangerous and costly dependence upon foreign sources of supply for critical materials in times of national emergency."

Gold’s Pullback An Opportunity? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe mentioned Wednesday that we were interested in the charts of gold and gold mining stocks. Gold mining stocks responded today with sharp gains. Given that more money printing is on the way (much more), we added gold and gold mining stocks to our allocation today. Gold has been correcting for two weeks allowing for an improved risk/reward entry. Gold remains $195 below its peak made last year, and $37 below its recent early February peak.
