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?

A New Reason Gold Stocks Will Soar / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: There are a number of reasons why many of us believe gold stocks will shoot for the moon before this bull market is over – they've done so many times in the past… the gold price still has a long way to climb… and producers are generating record revenue and profits. But I think there's another reason why gold stocks will soar – one that hasn't dawned on many in the industry yet.

Gold Odysseus Journey Continues! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is the Odysseus of the markets, destined to wonder the hinterland of the financial world for years without achieving the deserved safe haven status. Like Odysseus gold will eventually arrive and the general population will embrace it for what it is, the one and only store of wealth that exists today. Loathed and assailed by the mainstream press, gold is deliberately kept hidden in the financial shadows by those that continue to shovel out paper “assets” like so much manure. Right now the Dow is all the rage with the press as they preach the gospel of the US stock market as a port in the storm. They do so with an old time religious fervor that would make a snake oil salesman blush. The object of the message is to pry that last penny from the hands of the last widow and orphan left standing. Value be damned! There is always a greater fool out there who will want your paper asset at some higher price.

Where a Nation's Gold and Your Gold Should be Held / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePurpose of Holding Gold

Most central banks hold their nation's gold in the vaults of the world's leading financial centers' central bank vaults. These include New York, London, and Canada among others. In a peaceful, cooperative world, this is sensible as one of the prime purposes of central banks holding gold is to cover the nation's international trade payments when their own currency becomes unacceptable and their reserves of foreign exchange are depleted. By positioning the gold outside the country, it's instantly accessible for payments or guarantees of payments.

Gold and Silver Remain Strong as Greece Debt Nears Deadline / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Precious metals posted their worst daily performance of the year on Friday.  A stronger-than-expected, but highly criticized unemployment report added strength to the U.S. recovery story and the dollar.  Now, the U.S. dollar continues to climb higher as Greek politicians struggle to agree on an austerity plan that is needed in order to secure another bailout for the country.  Although the euro is giving a boost to the dollar, gold and silver continue to maintain key support levels.
