Gold Bears "Wrong" About Dollar as Spain Raises Debt / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWHOLESALE MARKET gold prices eased back from an earlier rally Thursday lunchtime in London, trading at $1623 per ounce as the Euro currency slipped from a 1-week high $1.26 after new data showed US jobless claims continuing to fall.

The Bank of England left UK monetary policy unchanged at its scheduled monthly meeting, but the People's Bank of China surprised analysts by cutting interest rates for the first time since early 2009.

Global Energy Transition Is Moving Fast / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil analysts already integrate “disruptive technology” in the shape of hybrid and all-electric cars in their forecasts of probable decline in the total oil demand of the world's two-largest car fleets - in the EU27 and USA - and lower demand growth going forward for the world's fastest-growing fleets of China, India and smaller emerging economies.

Disruptive energy economics is also at work changing the energy piechart, especially the future role of oil, gas and the renewables. Under increasingly rational outlooks, oil's share in global energy can fall from its present 36% - 37%, to well below 33% by 2020, this forecast decline being set by the IEA and similar energy agencies as only possible by about 2030 or later.

The Fed Reserve Whispers Sweet Nothings to Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

May was a disastrous month for the market, as the “sell in May and go away” mantra reared its ugly head. For the month, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 both fell more than 6 percent, while the Nasdaq dropped 7.2 percent. In fact, The Dow and Nasdaq suffered their worst monthly decline since May 2010. Precious metals also experienced sharp pullbacks as the U.S. dollar hit its highest level since 2010. The trend for equities carried over into June, but gold and silver have outperformed as more stimulus chatter circulates.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe apparent end to momentum in the 12-year bull market in the gold price is a carefully coordinated exercise in perception management. J.P. Morgan and a handful of the world’s largest banks have been permitted the right to originate contracts for forward sales and purchases of various commodity products far in excess of what is produced of each commodity annually.

Is the Table Set for a Mania in Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt may feel like I'm out of touch with the precious metals markets to broach the subject of a mania today, but I think the table is being set now for a huge move into gold and silver.

There are, however, very valid reasons to reasonably expect a mania in our sector. For one thing, manias have occurred many times before, but the main issue is that a mania in gold and gold stocks is the likely result of the absolute balloon in government debt, deficit spending, and money printing. Saying all that profligacy will go away without inflationary consequences seems naive or foolish. Inflation may not attract investors to gold and silver as much as force them to it.

Gold and Silver Correction Runs its Course, When Time's Up Prices Reverse / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis weekly chart courtesy Stockcharts.com features the gold price rising within the blue channel and the Accumulation/Distribution line at the top. The green boxes show the historical connection between the gold price and the A/D line. Whenever the A/D line rises (as now), price usually follows. The fact that the A/D line has been moving up since the beginning of 2012 puts pressure on the gold price to 'get in step'.

Have Gold, Silver, and Mining Stocks Bottomed? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: J_W_Jones

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Friday, the price action in gold caught the attention of most market participants as gold put in a monster move to the upside in light of risk assets such as the S&P 500 selling off sharply. In fact, gold futures rallied nearly $58 per troy ounce on Friday (+3.71%) while the S&P 500 Index sold off over 32 handles (-2.46%).

Monday saw some profit taking in gold and silver futures as Friday’s monster gains had to be digested. Short term traders were locking in profits, but overall the price action remains quite bullish at the moment. The gold miners remained extremely strong into the bell on Monday as buyers bid up prices in the afternoon to push them nearly 1.65% higher for the trading session.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you asked Amir Adnani, chief executive of Uranium Energy Corp., why he was so bullish about uranium in 2007, his answer would be the same as it is today: There is not enough supply to meet demand. Investors might wonder if Fukushima has drawn the curtain on this industry, but Adnani says in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report that this is just the first act for nuclear power.

Intermarket Analysis Applied to Gold, Gold Stocks and Bonds / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLongtime readers know that we are a huge fan of intermarket analysis which is a rather new field within technical analysis. I believe John Murphy developed this field, thanks to his book. Intermarket analysis is the analysis of the relationships between the major asset classes: stocks, bonds and commodities. Furthermore, evaluating and comparing the different sectors within those asset classes also counts as intermarket analysis. Essentially, it is comparing one market to another. Intermarket analysis is essential when analyzing the precious metals complex because it is always affected by or has some relationship to other markets.

Silver: A Tier 1 Asset for All / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn recent years, precious metals, most notably silver and gold, have played an unusual dual role as both monetary and non-monetary commodities. That may be in the process of changing for major financial institutions to favor holding metals as collateral as the Basel Committee ponders allowing banks to use gold as a Tier 1 capital asset.

According to Google Trends, the number of Internet searches for the phrase “bank run” has reached an all-time high, demonstrating just how concerned many intelligent people are becoming over the stability of the global banking system.

Amid these troubling times for financial institutions, silver is continuing to shine as the “poor man’s gold” that will provide a safe haven investment asset if paper currencies lose even more of their already tenuous credibility.
