Gold, Exciting Times / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big picture is shaping up quite nicely now that we have ended another quarter. A nasty cyclical global equity bear market has begun, the third of the ongoing secular bear market for "advanced" Western economies that began in 2000. As an advanced economy, Japan is the odd man out, as they have been mired in a secular equity bear market for almost 22 years now. There are some interesting "big picture" nuances to this cyclical bear as they relate to precious metals that should provide phenomenal profit opportunities for those with cash on hand.

Are Silver and Copper Prices Predicting a Global Recession? / Commodities / Double Dip Recession

By: J_W_Jones

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver and copper have recently been going through their own private bear markets. Since the open on September 1st, silver futures have sold off by more than 25%. During the same time frame, copper futures sold off by around 24%. Both metals are extremely oversold, but lower prices are still possible.

Are the bear markets in copper and silver an attempt to warn market participants that slower economic condition are ahead? Are equities going to take a huge hit on slower future growth?

Europe's Debt Crisis and Its Effect on Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you want to know the future, pay attention to the decisions European policymakers will have to make regarding debt, says Scott Gardner, chief investment officer at Verdmont Capital. In an exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he shares his analysis of debt policy investment implications, plus which gold mines Verdmont likes in Latin America and beyond.

The Gold Report: In one of your June research reports you wrote, "In the Eurozone, there has been limited political will to really make an impact on the debt side of the equation. With gross domestic product (GDP) growth set to slow, things should really get interesting for euro policymakers as they attempt to make their shaky union work." In the Eurozone, there is more than adequate money to take care of the debt situation, but the question remains, is there enough political will to keep all the member countries inside the Eurozone? What sort of impact will pending Eurozone issues have on the gold price?

Copper Lacking Buyers / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

So far my target window for a significant low in nearby copper prices in the 3.10-3.06 area is looking pretty accurate. That said, before we run out and load up on copper, it would behoove us to realize that despite holding right in my optimal target zone, the price structure has not yet been able to stage any sort of meaningful rally.

Will A China Economic Slowdown Affect Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After finishing the second quarter at $1,505, gold is on pace to finish the third quarter with its 11th consecutive quarterly gain. Although gold has been in a bull market for the past decade, recent concerns from a China slowdown are weighing on many markets. In September, gold prices and Asian stock markets had their worst monthly performance since October 2008.

Is Gold and Silver Rally Likely at the Moment? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Although we had described the fall in precious metals prices, we can understand the shock for those who had gotten used to the idea that gold prices only go in one direction—up. A good metaphor here would be gold taking the stairs to go up, but the elevator to do down. Last Friday it was more like gold falling headlong down the elevator shaft with the worse one day drop in five years. It definitely got ugly, but that’s normal. It’s part of the game, part of the ride. Investors fled to the U.S. (fiat) dollar and to U.S. Treasuries (that just got downgraded last month by Standard & Poor’s.) Go figure! They have to settle their debt in dollars. The sharp decline was difficult to digest especially since we had come off a period in August where it seemed that gold could do no wrong. It shot up when markets plummeted, and shot up when markets soared.

Silvercorp Goes on the Offensive / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: I’m writing from China, where I’m attending Silvercorp Metals’ (SVM) mine tour with other analysts and reporters. We met with company principals the first morning, including CEO and Explorer’s League honoree Rui Feng at their downtown Beijing offices, where the bulk of the discussion centered around a point-by-point rebuttal of the charges made by the now-infamous short sellers. With a reporter’s camera snapping, it became apparent to me that Rui and company have shifted from playing defense to going on the offensive.

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the world forging ahead in this modern industrial and technological era, the king of commodities continues to flex its muscles as the most indispensable of resources.  Oil, the lubricant of global commerce, is seeing record levels of demand.

Don't Panic on Precious Metals Tumble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFall officially began on September 21, but it's not just leaves that are cascading downward. In the few market days of the new season, precious metals prices have seen significant drops, some 11% for gold and 31% for silver. In its lurch downward, gold plowed through support levels at $1,750, $1,700, and $1,645 an ounce. I'm sure many readers are concerned.

Hedge Fund Action Doesn’t Change Gold and Silver Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Last week, hedge funds sold off their bullion holdings in what was a monumental run to the exits.  As the price of silver and gold trended higher against declines in other commodities, equities, and so-called risk assets, the price for bullion gave institutional investors the comfort they needed to boost cash.

But how much has changed since hedge funds eased up on margin plays in commodities?

Physical Silver Shortage to Follow Paper Selloff / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In less than one week, the price of silver gave up some 9 months of gains in a move from $40 per ounce to $28.  The current price for silver, which is the lowest price in 9 months, is sure to create shortages for physical silver.

The physical silver market is very much its own market, one which is dominated by small silver investors and coin collectors.  Compared to Wall Street, where margins change in a matter of minutes, and global issues permeate throughout trading floors, the local coin dealer hasn’t changed in decades, let alone the past few weeks.

China’s Rare Earths Monopoly - Peril or Opportunity? / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe prosperity of China’s “authoritarian capitalism” is increasingly rewriting the ground-rules worldwide on the capitalist principles that have dominated the West’s economy for nearly two centuries.

Nowhere is this shadow war more between the two systems more pronounced than in the global arena of production of rare earths elements (RREs), where China currently holds a de facto monopoly, raising concerns from Washington through London to Tokyo about what China might do with its hand across the throat of high-end western technology.

Greek Default, Eurozone/Bank Crisis and the Effect on Gold, Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe agree with Professor Rogoff that Greece should have defaulted some time ago. Despite all the current efforts, Greece will default and that contagion will result in a global, banking crisis. Even if we're wrong, the mountains of money that will be created and poured into the debt hole will benefit the gold and silver prices. The Greek debt crisis is about stemming the spread of bank runs, the breakdown of the other PIIGS countries debt situation, and potentially the fragmentation of the Eurozone. We're on the brink.

Gold Stocks Continue To Disappoint / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent major rally in gold is now experiencing a correction, so it is time to take a look at how gold stocks compared to a number of other gold trading vehicles. Quite frankly, it was abysmal. The argument that gold stocks are still the best gold trading vehicle is absolutely absurd. That being said, this article is in no way trying to discredit any gold mining, exploration companies or the efforts of the industry. The aim of this article is to simply show that gold stocks in general are unsuitable when trying to benefit from rising gold prices.
