Why Gold Stocks are Set for a Big 2012 / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week we discussed the concept of relative strength. Again, relative strength is the measuring of one market against another. There are perhaps 1000 mining companies and maybe 5% of them are worthy of your research and investment. Fundamental analysis should lead you to the best companies while technical analysis (relative strength analysis in this case) can generate a precise list of top prospects. Today we are focusing on relative strength in a larger context and will then apply it to the gold stocks.

How Will the Yen Intervention Affect Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The relationship between the US dollar index and precious metals is an important one to respect.  Last week, the dollar index experienced a sharp decline as the EU plan offered support to the euro, which is the largest weighted currency in the dollar index basket.  As a result, gold and silver had a terrific week.  Now, the Japanese yen is sending the US dollar sharply higher, and precious metals lower.

Beef Bull Market / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHave been visiting myfavorite unknown, small, near-hidden grocer more often recently. Reason for that is their steaks are both good, a rarity in this modern world, and reasonably priced relative to others. Another reason for doing so is in part to eat beef now, while it remains affordable.

Gold and Silver Building Bullish Momentum / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter correcting from above $1900 to below $1550, gold prices have undergone the necessary consolidation and now look poised to challenge the old highs.

Examining the chart below it is apparent that the recent decline in gold prices was not the bursting of a bubble, but merely a correction within a larger secular bull market. Although we were not fortunate enough to take a short position prior to the correction, we did signal a bullish options trade on GLD to subscribers on 26 September 2011, the day gold prices bottomed.

Gold Rallies on Euro-zone Inflation Solution / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo politician wants to end up with his head adorning the railings of some public building, and thus - possibly spurred into action by the video of the grisly end of Colonel Gaddafi - European leaders started to display qualities normally totally alien to them last week, in particular unity and resolve and a rare sense of urgency, in dealing with the acute crisis facing Europe. It did not go as far as statesmanship, however, because that would involve actually dealing with the root causes of the crisis, although with the best will in the world it's too late for that, so instead, predictably, they decided to fall in line with the tried and tested US solution to all economic problems, which is to print money and sell more debt - if they can find anyone dumb enough to buy it, that is, and a nice touch later in the week was the sight of a European representative going cap in hand to meet people with real hard cash in their pockets, the Chinese.

Silver Breakout Rally to Continue / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week the weight of the evidence suggested that silver was late in a base building process, and our judgement that this was the case was vindicated by subsequent action, when it broke out upside from the intermediate base pattern during the week in response to the inflation positive news out of Europe. This is discussed in some detail in the Gold market update, but suffice it to say here that Europe has decided that it will attempt to print its way out of trouble, just like the US, which is great news for holders of inflation hedges like gold and silver.

How Will Gold and Silver React to the EU Bailout Plan? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After numerous jukes and headline rumors, the world finally received a so-called EU solution. After threatening with a total insolvency Greece situation, European leaders were able to talk bondholders into accepting a 50% haircut on Greek debt. Furthermore, the euro zone leaders agreed to increase the firepower of the European Financial Stability Facility. The markets reacted quite well to the news, even if it was just a knee-jerk reaction. The Dow surged 340 points, and is now on track for its biggest monthly percentage gain in nearly 25 years.

New Bull Phase for Agricultural Commodities Grains ETF / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The medium-term technical work in the iPath DJ-UBS Grains TR Sub-Idx ETN (JJG) indicates that a new bull phase started after the June 2010 low at 32.33, which completed its initial up leg at the Feb 2011 high of 58.25.

All of the action off of the Feb 2011 high, into the Oct 4 low, represented a complex corrective process that fully digested the gains of the prior up leg.

Will Gold and Silver Go Up Along with the General Stock Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe yellow metal, money for more than three millennia, has a close relationship to other forms of money. Some argue that it isn’t gold that has risen in value in the last decade, as much that fiat currencies have lost value against gold. Ever since gold began its spectacular rise a decade ago, the U.S. dollar has lost over 80% of its purchasing power. The other currencies have not fared much better. The euro and the Japanese yen have lost over 70%. Gold is the only form of money that governments cannot create out of thin air which is why the supply of fiat currencies is expanding exponentially faster than gold supplies, which increase by about only 3% per year.

Unconventional Oil Supply / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEach year a small portion of the world’s finite oil supply is drained.  And over time this annual draw has grown larger in a world that seems to be getting smaller.  As global commerce gains fluidity, the demand for this hydrocarbon appears to be insatiable.

Transportation is of course by far the largest consumer of oil, responsible for about 60% of global demand.  Everything we own and everything available to us to buy had to get from where it was made to the point of sale.  And it is oil that fuels this transportation.

Argentina Rule Change Casts a Dark Shadow Over the Gold Mining Industry / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

The re-elected President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, wants export revenues from mining projects to be repatriated and converted to Argentine currency prior to their distribution.

This rule change by the Argentinian government renders this country less attractive than it use to be to inward investors. It also serves as a reminder as to the myriad of risks involved in any mining operation. This one comes under the heading of Geo-political risk, as the re-elected government seeks to stem the flow of capital out of the country. Having this cash repatriated also gives the government the opportunity, further down the line, to introduce capital controls which would result in the cash having to be re-invested in Argentina.
