Gold Inflation Hedge? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Ian R. Campbell writes: A recent article asks (and I think answers) the question “Is Gold Really An Inflation Hedge?” - reading time 3 minutes.  The article includes charts comparing the price of physical gold with year/year U.S. inflation, with University of Michigan U.S. inflation expectations, and with the U.S. Federal Reserve Balance Sheet.  The article concludes that the evidence shows the gold price increase of the past 11 years (gold breached U.S.$1,500 this morning for the first time, trading at just under U.S.$1,505 as I write this at 7:00 a.m. ET) can’t be attributed solely to inflation, and says “It is key to understand that the exposure you obtain from buying/selling gold is not exclusively linked to the inflation rate”, and that “the fundamental reason gold has value is that it is an alternative to paper currency, and what makes gold attractive to hold vs. a paper currency is what it yields on a real basis”.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF WHOLESALE gold bullion jumped above $1500 per ounce in London on Wednesday, setting new Dollar and Sterling highs but falling sharply against the Euro as the single currency rose to its highest level since 2009.

World stock markets surged almost 2% on average, as news of stronger-than-expected US corporate earnings came alongside a fresh rumor of Greek-debt "restructuring" from a German official.

Gold Launched to New Record Highs by 50 Factors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEdification is not the word that comes to mind when observing an interview with Larry Fink of Blackstone this morning on network financial news. It was inspirational if not humorous, and somewhat pathetic. Of course the interviewer treated him like royalty, when just a syndicate captain, a Made Man. As a cog within the US financial hierarchy, he was asked why Gold is approaching record price levels near $1500 per ounce. He gave his best 10-second answer, showing no depth of comprehension but an excellent grip of propaganda laced with simplistic distortion. He said, "GOLD IS RISING FROM ALL THE GLOBAL INSTABILITY, AND NOT FROM INFLATION AT ALL." Sounds good, but it lacks much reflection of the world of reality burdened by complexity and interconnectivity that the enlightened perceive.

Amaranth Collateral Damage in 78 Trillion Dollar J.P. Morgan Chase Derivatives Book / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe purpose of this paper is to illuminate the real purpose of the obscene size of derivatives books amongst the world’s largest financial institutions.  Derivatives in strategic markets are controlled by governments through proxy banks and agencies using these instruments.  By sheer volume, the trading in paper “tails” wag the physical “dogs”.  When market volatility negatively impacts these large institutions they are given a pass by regulators and accounting protocols in the interest of national security and preservation of the status quo.  Moreover, this ensures the perpetuation of U.S. Dollar hegemonic power.  The following accounts outline how these instruments are used to project this power.

Gold Mining Stocks Investing, Right Place, Right Time / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleArmed with a degree in geology, Silver Spartan LLC Founder Paul Dockweiler in 2003 got himself invited to explore in a mineral-rich area of southwestern Nevada that was falling out of favor because the price of gold barely covered the cost of production. As Paul explains in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, a lot of virgin ground with the same mineralogy as a past-producing mine had never even been drilled and, of course, the gold price has since marched up fivefold.

Agri-Food's Commodities Bubble? / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA big question should be on the mind of investors. Is it 2008 all over again? Are we witnessing another commodity price bubble driven by speculation in paper commodities? With Silver clearly in a speculative bubble, allowing value investors to liquidate positions at overly inflated prices, one might think so. With paper oil ignoring the weakness in physical oil demand, one might be almost sure of it. When mob panics and dumps ~$800 million into GLD, one might need to start reconsidering one's ownership of some inflated commodities.

Gold and Silver Set New Records as Athens Denies Debt Restructuring / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD jumped to a new all-time high of $1489 per ounce in Asian trade Monday, slipping back as the Dollar then rose vs. the Euro despite Greek protestations that Athens isn't seeking a "restructuring", in which it would effectively default on a portion of its debt.

Major-economy government debt rose in price, but Greek bonds sank – pushing yields to fresh post-Euro highs – while global stock markets began the Easter-shortened week with a 0.5% drop.
