2012: A Political Year for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis year our screens, radio and the media in general will be dominated by politics as electioneering goes into overdrive in a massive attempt to convince us that their man has all the answers. Alas, the political machinery has long since lost our respect, but that will not deter them and so we must endure this attack on our senses from all directions. The presidential elections in the United States is high profile at the moment but there are other very important elections also taking place, a few of which we touch on below:

Can We Profit From Gold Price Seasonality? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeasonality is observable in a wide variety of variables. In business, sales, production, inventory, man hours and the best time to discount can be at least partially predicted by seasonal effects. Gold is no different. In different months price swings occur somewhat predictably year after year. What causes this, to what magnitude does it occur and most importantly – how can we profit?

Where a Nation's Gold and Your Gold Should Be Held: Part II / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

We covered the dangers of holding gold at home and the difference in attitude individual's should have towards the problem of where and how to hold gold.

Barley Investing Better Than Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past five years, barley, of the eighteen commodities we follow, was the top performer. Rising by 180+% it bested Gold, +170%, and Silver, +150%. But why quibble? Nearly all commodity prices have done than paper equities. And perhaps they should, as real assets require real work to produce and are essential to the real world.

The Gospel of Gold According to Peter / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Grandich believes that we're in the midst of a stealth gold bull market. Grandich, editor and publisher of The Grandich Letter, recently penned the book Confessions of a Wall Street Whiz Kid, the moniker "Good Morning America" gave to him after he predicted the Black Monday stock market crash in 1987. He's now predicting gold to top $2,350/oz in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report.

The Gold Report: Going back to your time as a fund manager in the '80s on Wall Street, how does what was happening then compare with what is happening now?

New Up-Cycle for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My big-picture analytics of spot gold argue that a 5.5 month cycle low ended -- and a new cycle started -- at the Dec 29 low of $1522.48, after a multi-month correction from the Sep 6 high of $1921.50.

The 21% decline concluded an intermediate-term correction within the larger, multi-year bull market in gold.

How Bull Markets Evolve into Bubbles / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a science to market movements and various trends because human nature is consistent over time. Bear markets follow a pattern as do bull markets. In recent weeks we’ve noted the similarities between the past four equity bull markets. They start off strong for six or seven years before slowing down over the next five years. Then they break to new highs and eventually accelerate into a bubble. As we show in this update, change in valuation explains how bull markets evolve into bubbles.

Gold and Silver Benefit From Continued U.S. Dollar Weakness / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The dramatic rise in the price of precious metals — especially silver — in January was due in some part to the weakness in the U.S. Dollar among, with both gold and silver rising from their near term lows seen at the end of December 2011.

The inverse relationship in the valuation of the U.S. Dollar versus precious metals has continued to increase, with the U.S. Dollar approaching all-time lows against most major currencies, except against the Euro and the Pound Sterling.

What If Iran Closed The Straits Of Hormuz? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJimmy Carter asked himself the same question 32 years ago and committed political suicide straight after - but had the time to install solar collectors on the White House roof, in winter, which incoming president Ronald Reagan moved swiftly to have ripped out. We are told that if Iran closed the Straits - possibly for a half day but not much longer before war action reversed the closure - this would give excited oil traders the leeway to make oil prices pop by $30 or $40 a barrel. Iran cutting off its crude oil exports to Europe, or having them embargoed by Europeans, would have a longer-term, slower upward impact on prices, especially in Europe, measured by a Brent premium against WTI that could go beyond $30 per barrel.

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe WHOLESALE MARKET gold price slipped 0.6% to $1730 in London on Thursday morning, regaining most of that dip as the European Central Bank kept its key lending rate on hold and the Bank of England extended its purchases of UK government bonds to £325 billion ($515bn).

Waiting to Pounce on Gold and Silver Profits / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet me start by re-iterating that I am a secular permabull on physical precious metals, particularly Gold. When you're dealing with the end of the road for the current international monetary system (a la the 1930s and the 1970s), there's only one asset that is a complete no-brainer to own. As a hint, that asset is shiny and owned by every central bank in the world "just in case."

However, I also like to trade. When trading, I would sell or buy anything if I though there was a profit to be had. For example, my subscribers and I have been short senior Gold stocks as a "scalp" trade over the past week. Does this make me a traitor? I don't think in those terms, as I am a more practical Gold bug/bull. The more paper I make, the more metal I can buy.

Should Investors Reconsider Cash and Gold as Safe-Havens? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The staggering global debt crisis continues to linger on in the financial markets, as a country as small as Greece is unable to successfully deal with its debt addiction.  Greece is certainly not alone in this mess, which has investors worldwide seeking out safe-haven instruments such as cash and precious metals.  However, as markets and regulations change, investors are forced to rethink their safe-haven choices.  Cash is considered to be king, but how well is this notion holding up in today’s market?
