By: Money_Morning

By: Jan_Skoyles

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile gold equities continue to trail the gold price, junior stocks are gaining traction according to Doug Groh, co-portfolio manager and senior analyst with Tocqueville Asset Management.

Surging central bank gold demand adds new dimension to bull market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe longer-term trends in gold's supply-demand fundamentals point to a potentially explosive market situation in the years ahead. In short, the supply trend is static to shrinking while global demand trends, particularly from investors and central banks, appear to be in a period of rapid expansion. What's more the political, financial and economic dynamics driving these trends are not likely to undergo any significant reversal anytime soon for reasons explored below.

Gold Moves Higher For No Particular Reason Yet Seen / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jesse

I am checking various rumours, but so far nothing in the news can explain this remarkable short term rally in gold.

This is a significant divergence from the equity markets. Silver also has lagged a bit.

I would not chase it at this point, although that is easier to say as I did some additional buying earlier today and then went out for a walk and some light reading on the patio. Spring is in the air.

Managing Gold Investors Expectations: Why Gold Should Thrive / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was a challenging week for gold investors. Although the yellow metal has been on a spectacular 11-year bull run, recent strength in the economy has some thinking gold's heyday is over.

As I often say, investing, like life, is about managing expectations--even throughout gold's decade-long rise, price action over the short term can go both ways. It helps to look at what happens after short-term drops. For example, looking at the past decade of one-day 5 percent declines in gold, you can see that this event is pretty rare. In 2006, gold dropped more than 5 percent in a day only two times. In 2008, there were three such events. Another one occurred at the end of this February.

Gold Prices Set for Further Fall / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the not-so-distant past arguing that precious metals prices were setup to fall generally elicited a response which was not real pleasant. In fact, during gold's infamous bull market rally on several occasions I called for pullbacks which regardless of the accuracy of my call generated hate mail that seemingly never ended.

Fast forward to the present and hardcore gold bugs remain transfixed on the idea that precious metals must rise. The gold bull market has ended, at least for now and those still holding the bag are looking at large losses from the all time highs set back in 2011.
