The Face of Gold and Silver Price Volatility / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: On February 29, gold dropped 4.8% and silver 6.2% (based on London fix prices). That's quite the fall for one day. We've seen prices that have risen that much, too. But as I'm about to show, these ain't nothin', baby.

Based on our experience, we've been saying for some time that volatility will increase as the markets fight their way to the mania phase of this cycle - and that once there, the gyrations will jump even higher. This call doesn't exactly require one to go out on a limb; it makes sense since more investors will be crowding in - and volatility was high in the 1979-'80 mania.

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSPOT MARKET prices for gold bullion hit a six-week low of $1682 an ounce Tuesday lunchtime in London – a fall of 1.8% from last week's close – as stocks, commodities and the Euro continued their recent slide and uncertainty hung over recent European agreements.

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, in a much publicised exchange, Congressman Ron Paul asked Chairman Ben Bernanke if he would consider the circulation of gold and silver coins as legal tender. At The Real Asset Co we often write about how gold and silver are money, as history has repeatedly shown. In this article Jan Skoyles looks at why the introduction of silver coins into an economy is a good idea and a widely held view.

Gold and Silver Outlook / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: John_Hampson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the 1940s rising (secular) commodities played a key role in rising inflation. However, the US government maintained an environment of negligible interest rates, surpressed to hold down the costs of excess government debt built up in WW2. It did this by intervening in the money supply, much like today, and the result was debasement of the US dollar. Eventually it had to abandon the policy in 1951 as it had led to an explosion of debt monetization and uncontained inflation. However, the policy was successful in that it provided the sovereign debt support until a new cycle of growth was underway (a new secular stocks bull and the end of the inflationary commodities bull, a transition complete by 1951).

Playing the Gold, Silver Stocks Selloff / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals equities selloff at the end of 2011 was overdone, says Stephen Taylor, portfolio manager of The Taylor Fund and founder of Taylor Asset Management, in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report. Taylor remains bullish on gold, silver and base metals and is looking to some names that were walloped in the selloff to prosper in the next three years.

The Gold Report: The Global and Mail reported that more than 50 private-equity mining deals were struck in Canada in 2011—more than in any other sector. Why is private equity pouring venture capital into junior mining plays faster than any other Canadian business sector?

Will Doomsday Bill Help Gold and Silver Shine? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

In an effort to shore up its broken financial system, the European Central Bank recently completed a second round of its long-term refinancing operation. Around 800 financial institutions came to the ECB to borrow 530 billion euros in the form of low interest three-year loans. However, the new shot of liquidity is doing little stem the Greek tragedy. As of Monday morning, interest rates on Greek one year bonds have surpassed 1,000 percent for the first time ever. In comparison, interest rates on Greek bonds hit 100 percent for the first time in September. The dire situation in Europe has many wondering if the financial crisis in the United States could also worsen.

Gold's Violent Downside Reversal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold reversed violently to the downside last week, an event which has serious implications. It had been doing well up to that point and we did not see this reversal coming, so this is going to be "wise after the event" update - still it is considered to be better to be wise after the event than not wise at all, particularly if our interpretation of the meaning of this development proves to be correct.

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver has had a good run from its lows at the end of last year and was on course to break out of the major downtrend in force from its highs of April last year, but it was not to be, for last week it reversed sharply to the downside, leaving behind a bearish engulfing pattern on its chart, as we can see on its 15-month chart below. While it has not yet broken down from the intermediate uptrend in force from late last year, action last week suggests that it is destined to shortly.

Gold Investor Fantasies Not an Investment Strategy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile having not read any research into the time devoted by people to fantasizing, we suspect that activity represents a significant portion of the day for many. Morning coffee for men involves the exchange of fantasies surrounding sporting events. We know not what women fantasize about during their coffee, but suspect it might include a discussion of how some man could be made better. While romantic fantasies are beyond our mandate here, we suspect most are more likely to occur than some of the investment fantasies observed in recent years. Fantasies are fine, but they are not investment strategies. Some investment fantasies of recent times have been:

Short Term Pullback in Brent Crude Oil Price Starts / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Donald_W_Dony

Brent prices have reached, for the short term, a peak. The Atlantic basin commodity has topped out at $128.40 and is now pulling back to the first support level of $120. The trigger for the expected retracement appears to be the US dollar.

Brent prices tend to trade in the opposite direction to the US$. And the Big dollar is beginning to rise again (Chart 1). The currency bounced off of the $0.782 support line in February and is now advancing to a target of $0.805.

At the end of March, Faber will share his secrets for surviving corrections at the World MoneyShow in Vancouver.
