As Goes Steel… / Commodities / Steel Sector

By: Anthony_David

Falling iron ore prices had reached their lowest point over 22 months in late October. Since then, prices have been rising and they reached $147.60 per tonne—a rise of 26%—over the last few weeks. However, market observers are not celebrating yet; in fact they have cautioned investors that steel demand is still subdued so the rising iron prices could be a reflection of purchases made by metal traders and not steel making companies.

2012: A Year of Transition for Strategic Metals / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

China announced its rare earth export quota for 2012 on December 27. The initial quantity has been reduced by 27% in comparison to 2011 but the whole year’s quota is slated to remain almost unchanged from 2011 levels. Officials have launched a new system whereby the export quota would be split among the different types of rare earths—such a move is expected to better match supply and demand. China has, for the first time, split its export quota into light and medium-to-heavy categories. Mining companies that cannot meet the environmental standards of the government would be excluded from the quota.

Criminals Determine Gold's Future in 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to faulty interpretations of Mayan calendars, 2012 is supposed to bring with it the demise of humanity. Fortunately for us, this apocalyptic myth, like so many, is based on a superficial interpretation of the Mayan calendar. Like many stories based on a lie, this one nonetheless gains traction in the popular imagination thanks to our fascination with anything apocalyptic.

There Will Be Oil - Versus - Peak Oil Now / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleClaiming there is an oil limit on the economy and why peak oil is inevitable is usually talked down by saying its an unsure theory at best, and controversial, fear mongering or defeatist at worst. The totally simple numbers which prove it are however not Einstein-type mathematics and are not impossible to understand - - only by the badly intentioned or plain stupid.

We can start with the average oil consumption of OECD countries of about 14.4 barrels/capita/year, and try extending that to China and India. Presently they consume about 3 barrels per head in China and less than 2 barrels per head in India with recent growth rates as high as 6% per year.

Calling the Bottom in Gold and Silver, Forecast 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that my subscribers and I are fully into bullish positions in the precious metals sector, I hope they won't mind me telling you that I called for the bottom in Gold stocks on Thursday morning (12/29). I believe the bottom is in for silver, Gold and their respective stocks, although the metals may need a re-test of the bottom while I think Gold or silver stocks (as sectors) will only make higher lows on any corrective action.

Gold Stocks Lessons Learned in 2011 and Implications for 2012 / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 certainly was a difficult year for gold bugs. Gold barely held onto its gains for the year while Silver went parabolic and eventually fell to negative on the year. Mining stocks? Don't ask. The large caps (gdx) are currently down 17% on the year while the mid-tiers (gdxj) are down 41% and the explorers (gldx) are down 44%. In our last commentary we discussed the equities with respect to investing and speculating. By now, you should know that most mining stocks are speculations and do not perform consistently, even in a raging bull market.

Powerful Rebound In Gold and Silver Prices About To Begin? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRarely has such technical destruction been visited on stalwart sectors such as gold, silver and the mining stocks(GDX). The silver charts reveal technical damage not seen since the destruction of 1984. It can only be conjecture that can account for a once in a generation obliteration of a once hallowed sector. It must be remembered that both gold(GLD) and silver(SLV) had major moves earlier this year to the $1900 and $50, surpassing overhead resistance and reaching overbought territory. This may be the reason why the decline in precious metal is overextended and extremely oversold. We urged caution back in April for silver and in September for gold. Silver has characteristically corrected close to 50% from its highs, while gold has fallen less than 20%. Pullbacks are normal and restorative in a secular bull market in precious metals especially after explosive moves.

Platinum: Fire Sale On The Rich Man's Gold / Commodities / Platinum

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Lee writes: About 2000 years ago, Aristotle explained why gold remained the ideal choice of money throughout major nations and civilizations.  In words that are just as relevant today, he said "Gold is durable, not like wheat, divisible, not like diamonds, convenient, not like lead, constant, not like real estate, and best of all, as jewelry, it has intrinsic value".

Junior Gold Stocks Carnage / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs 2011 comes to a close, investors will reflect on one of the most tumultuous years in market history.  Though the stock markets were essentially flat on the year, those who’ve had skin in the game probably feel like they just stepped out of a barrel that went over Niagara Falls.

In assessing what worked in 2011, investors can yet again take solace in “old reliable”.  For the eleventh consecutive year gold will have returned positive gains.  Not only has gold’s secular bull delivered consistency, it has delivered robust returns that have greatly rewarded investors.  Since its low of $256 in 2001, gold has soared 640% to its high earlier this year.  And with only a couple days remaining, gold is looking to close out 2011 with a 9%+ gain despite its recent selloff.

Further Gold Price Fall Seems Unlikely / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are on the cusp of a new year, and this is the time that we take a look at those brave (or foolhardy) financial analysts who take out their crystal ball and predict where precious metal prices will go in 2012.

But first let’s see how last year’s prognosticators (including Sunshine Profits) fared. We are talking about predictions for the very chaotic 2011.

By: Adrian_Ash

The PRICE OF PHYSICAL gold crept higher early Friday, recovering half of this week's 5% loss to near 6-month lows as the Euro currency rallied from 12-month lows and world stock markets held flat.

The last London Gold Fix of 2011 came in at $1574.50 per ounce – some 11.6% higher from the end of 2010, and recording gold's 11th year of consecutive gains.

Should Gold Investors Worry About Euro Currency Weakness? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

On Thursday, Italy sold 7.02 billion euros of longer-dated bonds in the country’s final debt sale of the year. Although the yield on the 10-year bond decreased to 6.98 percent from November’s 7.56 percent, there is still plenty of concern weighing on the euro. The struggling euro has given a boost to the U.S. dollar, which has weakened gold prices.

Sell Gold or Will It Outperform Again in 2012? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2011 investors saw gold perform outstandingly in the quiet season in July, August. $2,000 looked a certainty before the end of the year, but then unusual forces pummelled the gold price and all other global financial markets. Shades of the credit crunch hit the markets under the title of the Eurozone debt crisis. This had been going on for the last two years, but it entered a very dangerous stage in the final quarter of 2011.

Gold Nearing Downside Exhaustion / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

Although right now we only have anecdotal evidence that that SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) might be making a significant multi-month corrective low in the vicinity of 148.50/25, all of my timeframe work from 5 minutes through the enclosed daily suggest that the price structure is nearing downside exhaustion.

Gold’s D-Wave Downtrend Forecast for 2012 Confirmed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the move below $1535 this morning gold has confirmed that it is still moving down into a D-Wave bottom. There has been some question as to whether or not the D-Wave had bottomed in September. The penetration of that intermediate low this morning confirms that the D-Wave did not end during the overnight selloff on September 26.

Gold Breaks Lehman's Uptrend on Forced Inter Bank Crisis Sales / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe WHOLESALE MARKET gold price fell further on Thursday in London, hitting its lowest London Gold Fix since 8th July at $1537.50 per ounce – 19% below Sept's record high – on what dealers called "long liquidation" and "pressure" from the Eurozone debt crisis.

New laws in Japan were also blamed for forced sales during Asian trade, with bullion dealers obliged to report all physical transactions above ¥2 million ($25,600) to the tax authorities starting New Year's Day.
