Will Gold and Silver Survive the Double Dip? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: John_Browne

It is rare in recent history for precious metals to appreciate in parallel with the broader stock market. Yet, this has been the case in the two years since the stock market began crawling out of the wreckage of the 2008 financial crisis. Although metals have vastly outperformed US equities over that time frame, it is noteworthy that stocks have gone up at all. Since January 2, 2009, the S&P 500 stock index is up just about 50%. Over the same time, gold is up 68% and silver is up a staggering 267%. With rising interest rates, oil at over $100 a barrel, and the recovery running out of steam, many investors are wisely asking if the markets are set for a sharp pullback. Given the correlation that we have seen across asset classes, some are making the seemingly logical conclusion that metal prices are vulnerable.

Crude Oil Near 3 Year High As Unrest Persists in the Middle East / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Marin Katusa, Casey Research : With the civil war in Libya now entering its third week, Egypt moving haltingly towards free elections, and hundreds dead in Syria, Yemen and Bahrain after a month of anti-government protests in each country, the Middle East is rife with instability. On Wednesday, April 6, that instability pushed the spot price of Brent oil above US$123 per barrel, a high not seen since August 2008 when prices were crashing from an all-time peak of US$147.50 on the eve of the financial crisis.

Natural Gas Pierces Resistance / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

After whipsawing to the downside to 4.06 immediately after this morning's inventory data, natural gas futures have reversed sharply to the upside and pierced key resistance around 4.20/21.

Natural gas made a significant multi-year low on March 7 at 3.805. The first minor upmove in a new upleg ended on March 27 at 4.548, after which a correction ensued that ended Monday morning at 3.99.

State of Utah Recognizes Gold Coins As Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe state of Utah has recently enacted a law by which the gold coins issued by the US Mint are to be considered money and, therefore, not subject to capital-gains taxation. The law does not apply to foreign-issued coins, such as South African Krugerrands, by far the most popular precious-metal coin in the world. Nor does the law apply to privately issued coins, such as the so-called Ron Paul Dollar. Capital gains on the US-issued coins would still be subject to federal taxation.

Gold and the Dollar Death by Slow Fuse or Eventual Crushing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Richard_Hartley

I decided to apply Martin Armstrong's Pi model of Economic Confidence to the demise of the dollar and predictive gold. The graphic below shows the ascent of Gold to new highs of $8300 dollars in 2018 based on the 4.3 year cycle and the private long cycle of 51.6 years that Armstrong developed. As Armstrong said last week in this article it looks like the  period 2015.75 through to 2020.05 is going to be a lot worse than this present one has been.

LONDON'S WHOLESALE-MARKET price for gold fell against a rising US Dollar in London on Thursday, dropping back to $1454 per ounce but rising for Euro and Sterling buyers as world stock markets fell alongside commodities.

Major-economy government bond price rose, nudging 10-year US Treasury yields down to 3.44%.

Euro Falls against Gold and Particularly Silver as Greek 10-Year Yield Surges Over 13.2% / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is tentatively higher against the euro but mixed against other currencies, while silver is higher again in most currencies. Both probed upward this morning and are exhibiting signs that they may push higher prior to a much anticipated correction.

The Greek 10-year yield has just surged over 13.2% and this is leading to falls in the euro and risk aversion with equities, commodities and oil falling.

Crude Oil Set to Break $150 by Mid Summer / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Money Morning predicted in its 2011 Outlook series that oil prices would see $100 a barrel by summer. And that's proven to be true - but not entirely for the reasons we discussed.

In addition to the increased demand we talked about in January, violence in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has driven oil prices into the stratosphere. The price of light, sweet crude climbed above $112 a barrel last week, up more than 22% from where it started the year.

Gold Targets $1500, Soaring Silver Hammers the Shorts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince early January 2011 the USD has lost 7.4% of its value and needs to manage any further decline or stabilize at this point in order re-assure holders of this currency, that all is not lost. As we see it there will be short rallies on the way down but the ‘74′ level will soon be breached and then its down the ‘72′ level. The technical indicators are firmly in the oversold zone so a short rally is possible at this juncture, however, as the chart shows we have a had a number of rallies already this year that have amounted to nothing.

Gold Forecast Not to Hit $2,000/oz / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot long after a New York Times headline quipped, "Now the Gold Rush Is to the Exits," Campbell & Lee Investment Management Cofounders, Bruce Campbell and Joe Lee, hung out their shingles in Oakville, Ontario. That was late in 1999. With the price of the precious metal (PM) sinking toward its lowest level since 1975, when the U.S. abandoned the gold standard, the new investment management company had no reason to focus on PM companies. Obviously, as Bruce tells us in this exclusive Gold Report interview, the company has since shifted its focus.

Silver Offers the Only Positive Return / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

When thinking about an investment, the best managers look for returns that beat what they perceive to be average.  In the long run, wealth is a relative measure—today, even the poorest people are wealthier than the richest people five hundred years ago, though we’d still say that today’s poor are poor.

Soaring Gold and Silver Prices Amidst Inflationary Pressures / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNeither government nor anyone is smarter than the markets. As they say the trend is your friend. All you have to do is get on for the ride. It’s really as simple as that. The trick is picking the trend. We were fortunate enough to pick gold and silver in June of 2000. We went long and stayed long all those years only occasionally making a trade. Every time there was a correction we recommended further purchases.

THE PRICE OF PHYSICAL gold investment bars in wholesale trading regained half of the week's near-2% drop on Wednesday in London, touching $1462 per ounce as global stock markets ticked higher and government bonds eased back.

European Brent crude oil rallied to $121 per barrel after losing 6% in two trading days, while Kuwait suspended oil exports due to sandstorms, and Libya's new "contact group" of politicians called for Colonel Gaddafi to quit.

Silver Options: How to Protect Your White Metal Profits / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Without question, both are worthy of note - but the real star over the past eight months has been silver.

Silver Investing Strategies, and the Outlook for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver rose as high as $41.98 an ounce this week - a 31-year high - and has remained above the $40-an-ounce level. That means that the "other" precious metal is up about 32% so far this year - and has more than doubled since Money Morning recommended it to readers in early September.

But where does it go from here? And how should investors position themselves? To answer those questions - and others - Money Morning brought its top "gurus" together for a roundtable discussion.
