Why Silver is a Steal At These Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Money_Morning

Lately there has been quite a divergence in the behavior of those investing in silver compared to those holding gold.

One group is running scared, while the other is calmly stocking up.

It looks as if many of the weak hands holding gold in the form of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are giving up and liquidating their positions. A record $4.1 billion was yanked out of gold ETFs in the month of February, a record high, according to the BlackRock ETP Landscape report. This figure was almost double the previous record set in January 2011 of $2.6 billion.

Gold Safe Haven Demand Amid Fresh Cyprus Chaos / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The GOLD PRICE continued to hold above $1600 per ounce in Asian and early London trade on Tuesday, easing back from Monday's 3-week high as world stock markets struggled again amid fresh uncertainty and rumor over Euro-member Cyprus' banking crisis.

Silver below $29 per ounce held flat alongside other commodities, while major-government bond prices rose.

Imagining a Gold-Centric Global Financial System / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Robert Cohen, lead portfolio manager with Dynamic Funds, has been kicking up dust at conferences and in board rooms with his "revolutionary and simple" idea that gold mining companies should hold gold on their balance sheets and use gold-based loans. But the idea is gaining traction and he suggests in this Gold Report interview from the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada conference that management teams and investors alike would do well to question their use of U.S. dollars as a functional currency.

 

The Gold Report: Robert, you presented a paper at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada conference that focused on, among other things, the uses of gold as a monetary asset. Please tell our readers about that.

Gold Jumps Over $1600 as Cyprus Bail-Out Hits Bank Savers / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE GOLD leapt 1% against the Dollar and 2.3% against the Euro at the start of Asian trade Monday, as global shares sank and major-government bonds rose following the Cyprus bail-out deal announced by European politicians at the weekend.

"[German negotiators] were hand in hand with Finns," says an unnamed official quoted by the Financial Times, "who were much more dogmatic" in forcing a levy worth €7 billion on ordinary bank depositors as part of the €17bn deal.

Where is the Gold and Silver Rally? What is Missing? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

So many headlines are saying "$5,000 Gold, or $10,000 Gold; Silver, The Investment of the Decade," etc, etc, etc. Will that happen? A history of failed fiat currencies says yes. When will it happen? That is the question few articles address because they simply have no clue, beyond their sensationalized headlines.

Who can best answer that question? It is not Who, but What, and that comes from the market itself, ever the most reliable source. The answers may not always satisfy, but the market is never wrong. What can be said with certainty is that before gold and silver, [PMs, Precious Metals], can go up, they first have to stop going down.

How to Fix the Gold Fix / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

US regulator the CFTC is anxious about the London gold fix. But what is the fix, and why...?

SO IS the London gold fix a fix? US derivatives-market regulators think it might be.

The CFTC is no doubt absolutely within its rights to question the use of certain prices as reference points (aka "marks") in US transactions. Joining the International Roundtable on Financial Benchmarks three weeks ago, its commissioner Bart Chilton said he also thought many other markets might deserve attention, too. But quite what a Washington commission overseeing the US futures markets might achieve – or hope to – as regards the London Fixings as a process, however, we can't imagine.

Will Gold Be Dragged Lower by Stocks and Currencies? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Recent developments on the currency market may worry some gold and silver investors, as dollar refused to move lower at the cyclical turning point, an issue which we touched upon in our last essay, and euro seems to have broken below its medium-term rising support line. This is so because we're used to strong negative correlation between these precious metals and the USD and the abovementioned situation seemingly suggests a bullish outlook for the U.S. currency (further supported by a negative one for euro). And this is why we invite you to read today's essay portion, as it reveals some interesting facts that shed new light on the outlook for the currency market and its link with precious metals. We'll start with USD's long-term chart (charts courtesy by http://stockcharts.com.)

Silver Stalls, Gold Gains as CFTC Clarifies London Price Manipulation Fix "Investigation" / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

GOLD ticked higher but silver prices stalled Friday morning, as a rise in Asian stock markets failed to carry over into European or pre-opening trade in US equities.

The Euro currency rose sharply through $1.30, knocking the gold price in Euros back below €1220 per ounce, virtually unchanged for the week.

U.S. Government Investigation of Gold Price Manipulation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Midas_Letter

Yesterday, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the regulator who ostensibly regulates the banks and major financial institutions who participate in the futures and commodities trading business, announced they were going to examine whether prices are being manipulated in the “world’s largest gold market”, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal.

For long time observers of the gold price and the fundamental and not-so-fundamental influences on its price movements, the announcement might have elicited a gasp of delight in the spirit of “It’s about time!”

Silver Possession Versus Silver Trust – A Safe Alternative to Direct Possession? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Value seeking investors are increasingly returning to the precious metals market. Furthermore, many of them will undoubtedly gravitate toward using the more conveniently traded alternatives to self-storing the metals.

The idea of taking physical possession of gold or silver currently seems almost taboo in the mind of the mainstream precious metals investor, although many alternative minded investors tend to see personal physical possession as the only safe option in the event of a financial collapse scenario.

Spring Rally Directly Ahead for Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Last week in regards to Gold we wrote: We have the majority of sentiment indicators showing more pessimism than in 2008, an explosion in negative news coverage and news that major banks have downgraded their outlooks. Without knowing anything else, you’d expect Gold to be down considerably, yet it’s only off about 5% year to date and 10% in the past three and a half months. Most important, Gold hasn’t even broken support!

GOLD dropped below $1580 per ounce Thursday morning, while gold in Sterling and Euros fell back below £1060 and €1225 an ounce respectively, extending losses from a day earlier that following stronger-than-expected US retail sales data.

Like gold, silver drifted lower this morning, dipping below $28.60 an ounce, while other commodities were broadly flat and European stock markets ticked higher.

How Not To Make Gold Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Berwick

Ed Bugos writes: Can gold be the money of the free market if the violent monopoly of government gets behind the effort? This utterly wrong notion is what Ralph Benko seems to be suggesting in his recent article on NationalInterest.org titled "How to Go Gold".

Basically Benko sees a return to gold through world government initiative and collaboration, starting with the US president. He appears to cite evidence that this is underway, starting with the central bank's buying of gold. Then Benko concludes by citing Lewis Lehrman's 5 steps back to a "classical" gold standard:

From 401k to Retirement Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

Miguel Perez-Santalla writes: Just how do you go about putting physical precious metals into your retirement account...?

So I have just left a company where I had accumulated a nice amount of retirement funds in my 401K plan.

Like most people, for me a nice amount is any money that somehow hasn't gone to pay for college tuition. So I found myself for the first time in a long time needing to consider what to do with a small chunk of change.

By: The_Gold_Report

Silver has been trading sideways so far in 2013, but what will the rest of the year bring? Will 2013 be the year silver prices break out or crash and burn? What is a sustainable silver price for mining companies and where will the metal come from to supply the next generation of industrial and investment demand? Most important, how can investors make money off this volatile sector? These were the burning questions The Gold Report took to analysts, money managers and heads of silver mining companies. The answers may surprise you.

Don’t Believe the Chart: Gold Still Looks Promising / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: While I do like gold, I’m somewhat perplexed over the metal’s near-term stock chart. The chart shows indecision and indicates a potential downside break at $1,550, with gold potentially falling out of its current sideways channel.

And it also appears that the professional money has mixed feelings about gold. Famed investor George Soros cut his gold holdings, but Paulson & Co. made no changes. (Source: Rooney, B., “Soros dumps gold as prices sink,” CNN, February 16, 2013, last accessed March 12, 2013.)

Gold Being Strongly Influenced by Technicals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

U.S.DOLLAR gold prices ticked higher to $1597 per ounce Wednesday morning, holding gains from a day earlier, as the Dollar fell against the Euro despite warnings from a prominent Eurozone policymaker that the crisis in the region is not over.

Gold in Euros rose to its highest level this month at €1229 an ounce, in contrast with gold in Sterling, which failed to move back above £1070 an ounce as the Pound recovered some ground against the Dollar after hitting a fresh two-and-a-half-year low yesterday.
