The One All-Encompassing Truth Behind Energy Policy / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Most people think the “big” energy decisions are driven by what it costs at the pump or how much it takes to heat their homes (a lot, as it turns out this winter).

But as the controversial decision over the Keystone XL pipeline shows, there’s another element in play… and it’s a big one.

Dark Gold - Shedding Light On A Mysterious Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Peter_Schiff

Gold is the simplest of financial assets - you either own it or you don't. Yet, at the same time, gold is also among the most private of assets. Once an individual locks his or her safe, that gold effectively disappears from the market at large. Unlike bank deposits or stocks, there is no way to tally the total amount of gold held by individual investors.

Gold Corp Huge Gains Are at the End of "Acquisition Trail" / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: A few weeks back, Goldcorp Inc. (NYSE: GG), a top gold producer, made a hostile $2.6 billion offer for Osisko Mining Corp (TSE: OSK).

It was one of many signs that top gold producers are on the acquisition trail.

And another strong signal that gold prices may be heading upward.

GOLD Price Rally Correction Within Downtrend / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Gregor_Horvat

Gold has been trading higher since start of January but recovery is slow and overlapping within a trading channel which we think it's a corrective move. We are tracking wave 4 that can be part of an expanding diagonal in wave 5) down. If that is the case then current rally should stop somewhere around 1280-1300 region. Break of 1230 will confirm weakness for wave 5 of 5) going towards 1100/50.

Taking Stock Of Silver Stocks – SLW, PAAS, CDE, AG, SSRI, HL / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

We are of the simple opinion that any substitute for the real thing is never as good a choice as the original, even when it comes to Precious Metals. There are so many other considerations that enter the picture when regarding mining stocks. One of the primary ones is management, what it can do to a stock’s performance separate and apart from its underlying purpose, silver production. There can be poor management, mismanagement, decision-making related to stock performance instead of getting the maximum performance out of its mining operations, overspending, misspending…you get the idea.

JP Morgan Holds Highest Amount Of Physical Silver In History / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: GoldSilverWorlds

While everyone is focused on the massive outflows in COMEX registered gold inventories and the gold ETF, GLD, it seems that an important evolution in silver is passing unnoticed. In what follows, Ted Butler, precious metals analyst specialized in COT analysis, reveals a remarkable insight in the physical silver market.

Butler’s calculations show that JPMorgan (JPM) has piled up the largest holding of physical silver in modern world. Since the silver price peak in May 2011, the bank has accumulated between 100 and 200 million ounces of physical silver (if not more). The equivalent in metric tonnes is between 3,110 and 6,220 tonnes.

Seven Gold and Uranium Juniors with Near-Term Growth You Can't Ignore / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

Many junior miners have an ace up the sleeve, and that is commodity price leverage. Joe Mazumdar, senior mining analyst with Canaccord Genuity, sat down with us to share what he looks for in junior companies with a lot of commodity price leverage. In this interview with The Mining Report, find out why bigger isn't necessarily better when it comes to gold mining projects, and why the market is favoring uranium explorers over producers—for now. Mazumdar also shares names of gold companies with "bite-sized" capital needs from Burkina Faso to California, as well as the apples of his eye in the Athabasca Basin, where management teams with significant track records are heading up promising exploration programs.

Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Price Extends Declines / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

On Monday, crude oil lost 0.84% as weaker-than-expected U.S. and Chinese economic data fueled concerns over crude oil demand. Thanks to this news, light crude closed the day below $97 for the first time since Jan 27.

Data released over the weekend showed that China's Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to a six-month low, falling to 50.5 in January from 51.0 in December. This weaker-than-expected numbers raised questions about economic growth in the world's second largest oil consumer (after the U.S.) and weighted on the price of light crude.

NYMEX No Future For Crude Oil Futures / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Potatoes to Oil

According to Leah McGrath Goodman's well-researched book “The Asylum: The Renegades Who Hijacked the World's Oil Market", the start of Nymex oil trading was in major part due to traders who stumbled upon oil futures after screwing up Maine potato futures. Their trading “industry” or gambling party had been built on predicting the Maine potato harvest, and—much more importantly—trying to manipulate potato prices, to the point that regulators were finally forced to act. They shut down the potato futures market in 1976, after repeated defaults on physical deliveries of more than 25 000 tons of potatoes. As Goodman explains, the traders were forced to cast around for something else to trade. Then-Chairman of the Nymex, Michael Marks tried to boost futures trading in boneless beef and plywood, but that didn't work. In 1978 however, Marks hit on the right thing and introduced heating oil futures - which was the jackpot gusher that led to 30 years of good times.

Now Is the Time to Buy Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Bud Conrad, Chief Economist

Gold has been in a downturn for more than two years now, resulting in the lowest investor sentiment in many years. Hardcore goldbugs find no explanation in the big picture financial numbers of government deficits and money creation, which should be supportive to gold. I have an explanation for why gold has been down—and why that is about to reverse itself. I'm convinced that now is the best time to invest in gold again.

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: The demand for gold bullion is increasing. Each day there’s more evidence that suggests this phenomenon will continue. We see consumers buying gold bullion across the global economy. As a result, mints are working in overdrive mode to meet this demand and gold storage facilities are looking to add more vaults.

Gold GLD ETF and the Intermediate Trend Trader / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Rambus_Chartology

Before we get into the charts I have seen several questions on what type of trader is Rambus. There are basically three types of traders. The short term, the long term and the intermediate term. I’m an intermediate trader that looks for the impulse move when a consolidation, top or bottom is confirmed. It’s those moves where you can make the most money in the shortest period of time.

The markets are either building out at top, bottom or consolidation pattern at any given time. This is where it’s much harder to make profitable trades because they are in chopping mode with no real trend, just short term moves going nowhere. It’s when these tops, bottoms or consolidation patterns are completed is when you get your impulse move and a trend to follow. Being in an impulse move is much easier psychologically because the chopping action has finally ended. On the other hand, during an impulse move, you will run into small consolidation patterns that form along the way that many think is the end of the move but in most cases it’s just a pause that refreshes.

Gold and Silver Stocks Sector New Uptrend - Juniors to Lead the Charge / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Clive_Maund

We sold our Precious Metals sector holdings on Monday 27th January, which we had bought just a few weeks earlier, in order to sidestep a possible reaction. The reason for this was that both gold and silver had arrived at important trendline resistance and some of our juniors had become critically overbought after strong gains. Were we correct to sell at that point, in view of the building major uptrend across the sector?

Why is the Federal Reserve Tapering the Gold Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

In former times, the rise in the gold price was held down by central banks selling gold or leasing gold to bullion dealers who sold the gold. The supply added in this way to the market absorbed some of the demand, thus holding down the rise in the gold price.

As the supply of physical gold on hand diminished, increasingly recourse was taken to selling gold short in the paper futures market. We illustrated a recent episode in our article. Below we illustrate the uncovered short-selling that took the gold price down today (January 30, 2014).

No Containing The Energy Subprime Rout / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

The Financial Subprime Model

The 2008 global financial crisis was “contained”, or at least plausibly denied for over 2 years before it went critical and caused a global stock market, financial, banking and economic crisis – the effects of which we are still living with, today. As Doug Short wrote this week on Market Oracle:  “Contained” was the buzz word used to describe the U.S. subprime crisis in 2006-2007 until it was undeniable in 2008 that it was most certainly not contained. So then, the trillion dollar question is, how does one determine when a crisis is contained or developing into a contagion?”  Incredible or unexpected price and production swings by double-digit percentage leaps, is one indicator
