What the Next Decade Holds for Commodities / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a decade! A rapidly urbanizing global population driven by tremendous growth in emerging markets has sent commodities on quite a run over the past 10 years. If you annualized the returns since 2002, you find that all 14 commodities are in positive territory.

A precious metal was the best performer but it's probably not the one you were thinking of. With an impressive 20 percent annualized return, silver is king of the commodity space over the past decade with gold (19 percent annualized) and copper (18 percent annualized) following closely behind.

Gold Ignores Indian Tax Hike, Rises Because of China / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe WHOLESALE MARKET gold price reached new 5-week highs as Asian trade ended and London opened on Tuesday, while global stock markets and commodity prices also rose after stronger-than-expected growth data from China.

The world's second-largest economy, China reported annual growth of 8.9% for the end of 2011 – the weakest level since mid-2009 but stronger than analysts forecast and almost 5 times the pace of US growth at last count.

No More Safe Havens, Avoid Counterparty Risks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this brief article about Safe Havens for investors we look at equities, bonds, and the current situation within the financial system, before asking whether gold bullion is being overlooked. We look at the degree of participation by institutional investors in the gold market and notice that they seldom invest in gold.

John Plender writes in yesterday’s FT that the pool of “super safe assets” is shrinking, whilst legal and advisory firms around the world scramble to prepare their clients for the implications of new currencies (or should I say old currencies returning in new guises).

Gold and Silver Outlook in 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLately we've been writing about the precious metals stocks. In particular we believe the equities have made a multi year bottom and look ready for a solid 2012 and 2013. Part of the reason is the action in the metals (Gold & Silver) suggests an important bottom is in place and a rebound is underway. Based on our work, we anticipate a slow but gradual rebound in both metals.

Gold Bull Bear Standoff Approaching Probable Bullish Resolution / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe current standoff in gold is approaching resolution and evidence is starting to pile up in favor of an upside breakout. We have been cautious on the PM sector for months starting with the September top which we shorted, resulting in massive profits in a matter of days, especially in silver, but there is always the danger of taking caution too far and getting caught on the wrong side of the trade.

Silver Bearish or Bullish Contrary Unfolding Technical Pictures / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe diminution in silver's downside momentum and the massive contradiction between our earlier bearish interpretation of the charts, and the strongly bullish COTs and sentiment indicators forces us today to reconsider the charts and ponder other possibilities, for we cannot afford to be on the wrong side of the trade in this commodity. Fortunately we are still ahead of the curve as silver has yet to "tip its hand", but it doesn't look like it will be long now before it does.

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. DOLLAR spot gold prices climbed to hit$1647 an ounce Monday morning in London – 0.8% below last week's high – while stock and commodity markets were broadly flat as markets absorbed Friday's news of cuts to nine Eurozone sovereign credit ratings.

Gold Trend Forecast for Q1 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past five months gold has fallen sharply and is no longer headline news which it once dominated back in 2011 when it was making new highs every day. The shiny metal has been under pressure because traders and investors started to pull some money off the table to lock in gains. Gold prices had surged so fast most advanced traders knew that final high volume surge was not sustainable. But the main reason gold topped out in my opinion was because the US Dollar index had put in a bottom and started to build a base. As we all know a rising dollar typically means lower stocks and commodity prices.

The cost to buy the "clean energy" is collapsing as crude oil, a product that needs refining, stays above $100 per barrel.

Revisiting Our Proposal for an Overnight Gold Fund / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn August 2010 we wrote an article entitled “Proposing An Overnight Gold Fund” in which we explored the potential for launching a fund that held long positions in gold overnight and was short gold during the day. We pointed out that “a hedge fund starting in 2001 with $100m, with the strategy of being long gold from the PM to AM fix, and short gold from the AM to PM fix...would be worth $2.16billion today, before any fees and expenses.” We have been monitoring this trading strategy since then and therefore would like to take this opportunity to update readers on its astonishing progress.

Will Gold Regain its Safe Haven Status in 2012? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast year was an eventful one for the gold market. The yellow metal was up 10 percent in 2011 for its 11th consecutive annual gain. But despite making an all-time high on Sept. 5 at $1,900/oz. gold finished the year down 18 percent from that high.

Gold entered a bear market in late 2011 which was confirmed by gold's closing below its historically significant 30-week moving average. This doesn't happen very often which indicates the technical significance of the event. The last time gold violated its 30-week MA was in 2008 during the credit crisis and it hasn't happened since then as you can see in the following chart.

Gold Rebounds and Gains Momentum / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold rallied this week hitting its highest in a month and breaking above its 200-day moving average. There were a myriad of reasons suggested in the financial press. Some writers said it was a stronger euro that helped boost the price above the key technical level. One headline said it was due to a buying binge from China ahead of the Lunar New Year which begins January 23. (The country imported a record 103 tons of gold from Hong Kong in November, up 19% month-on-month and a 483% increase year-on-year.)

Global Factors Boost Gold and Silver Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After having a strong week, gold and silver prices are pulling back today, as several developments weigh on the markets. JP Morgan provided a wake up call to rallying financials as the company reported a miss on fourth quarter earnings. For the second time in only two days, Bank of America cut its fourth quarter GDP estimate from 3.5 percent to 2.7 percent. Furthermore, the U.S. dollar continues to show strength as Standard & Poor’s downgrades France.

Overbought U.S. Dollar to Launch Gold Price Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince rocketing to new all-time highs last summer, gold has weathered a major correction.  While that selloff was healthy and necessary given the excessive optimism that catapulted gold to very-overbought levels, a strong US dollar accelerated gold’s swoon.  But with the dollar now as overbought and wildly popular as gold was in August, this currency itself is due for a major selloff that is likely to launch gold.
