Gold and Silver Mining Stocks XAU, GDX Finally Resume Up Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn our previous essay we've covered the situation on the gold market, however since rallies (and declines) often correspond to the rallies (and declines) in the mining stocks, this time we will focus on the latter and check if we can spot any divergences or confirmations.

Let's begin with looking at the very-long-term XAU Index (proxy for gold- and silver mining stocks) chart (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com)

Gold and Silver Slip Further as Euro Falls on Debt Warning / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD slipped to a two-day low in London on Wednesday morning, dropping 1.5% from yesterday’s Dollar high at $1408 per ounce as Asian stock markets closed up to 2% lower and European stocks lost 0.7% on average.

The fall in gold prices – and a rise in the Dollar’s forex value – came despite the US Federal Reserve last night vowing to continue its $75 billion per month quantitative easing and keep interest rates at “exceptionally low levels…for an extended period” even in the face of strong retail-sales and factory-gate inflation data.

Silver Price Forecast Rise to $40/oz in 2011 and $400/oz by 2015 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has fallen in dollars but is flat in sterling and euros this morning. Moody's has cut Spain's debt rating on contagion concerns which has seen the euro fall. Germany's opposition to further government financed aid is leading to tensions with the ECB, which is itself now under financial pressure and may need an increase in capital if it is to continue buying sovereign European debt.

The One Reason You Have to Own Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnalysts and pundits provide various reasons for the bull market in Gold. This includes emerging market demand, low interest rates, money printing, central bank accumulation, central bank policies and falling gold production. These are all good reason but there is one reason which stands apart and will drive precious metals to amazing heights. It is the impending sovereign debt default of the west, led by the great USA.

The Gold Sleeper Trend You Need to Know About / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLouis James, Senior Editor, Casey’s International Speculator writes: In the midst of any long-term trend, like the secular bull market for metals we’re in now, there will be trends within the trends. You could think of them as being like eddies, whorls, and side-channels in a great torrent. We see one such developing that could benefit junior gold stock investors in the near- to mid-term.

Gold’s Reaction To Central Banks Rising Rates Urges Caution / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past few weeks I have been warning about a decline is bonds and a rise in interest rates.  Bernanke has decided to leave rates unchanged and remains committed to the plan to buy $600 billion dollars of long term debt.  Congress and President Obama are working together to extend the Bush tax cuts for two years at a cost of $858 billion.  This is on top of the 2009 trillion dollar stimulus and Bush’s Tarp plan.  U.S. debt is under pressure and we may be closer to losing our AAA credit rating according to Moody’s.

Will Oil Inflation Destroy America Or Will 2011 Be The Year of The Rabbit? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe good news is that the Saudis are saying $70 to $80 is “Fair”. The bad news is they may change their minds and with oil knocking at the door of $90 and some OPEC malcontents muttering $100, they are starting to look a bit wobbly.  Or even if they are “steadfast”, perhaps they won’t be able to pump enough oil to contain prices?

In 1985 OPEC was holding back 11 million barrels a day of capacity, in 1995 that had dwindled to 2 million a day, today no one is sure. The leverage to keep oil prices down is a function of how much “ammo” you have.

Silver Monster Move in the Making / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Ronald_Rosen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe don’t often see a chart that promises us a monster move. When we finally discover one it usually comes with a number of ifs. This quarterly logarithmic silver chart, although promising us a monster move, is no exception to the rule of ifs. The ifs are clearly outlined. Will the price of silver close over the mid trend line? If the price of silver does close over the mid trend line will it have a 5 wave move as did Major Wave One?

Commodities Have Detached from US Dollar, Are Rising in Real Terms / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the first phase of its bull market in the earlier portion of the last decade, Commodities began a bull market on the back of a falling US Dollar. The greenback declined while commodities, stocks, foreign currencies and even bonds rallied. The universal bull market could be better termed a dollar bear market. The movement of risk assets and especially commodities were, in most cases, hostage to the trends in the buck.

Gold Makes Record Run / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleINCIDENT: On 7 December, gold hit an all-time high above US$1,425 per ounce (London morning fix), after having risen from under $300 per ounce at the beginning of the millennium and from just over $700 per ounce only a little over two years ago (all figures in current dollars).

SIGNIFICANCE: While the recent spike in the price of gold has already been somewhat redressed, new drivers in the market suggest increasing demand for the precious metal.

Gold Prices and Panic / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith gold selling for around $1,400 per ounce, it seems like everyone has jumped on the yellow-metal bandwagon. Resource-investment guru Rick Rule said about gold investing recently, "we're no longer lonely in the gold trade. You couldn't describe this as a contrarian activity, and you couldn't describe this as a low-risk activity."

Gold and Silver Rise on Higher Chinese Inflation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE PHYSICAL GOLD hit a 3-session Dollar high in London on Monday morning, rising together with equity and commodity prices on what one trader called “relief” that Beijing did not hike Chinese interest rates as expected at the weekend.

The Euro also rose to its best level since Thursday vs. the Dollar, capping the gold price in Euros at Friday's finish beneath €33,750 per kilo – its second-highest ever weekly finish.

Why Does Gold Fall When the Dollar Rises? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are all used to reading that gold rose because the dollar fell or that gold fell, because the dollar rose. The picture conjured up is one of traders racing in to actually buy or sell gold as they watch the exchange rate move. When U.S. Treasury yields rose this week, the dollar strengthened slightly and the gold price dropped. When we watched this happen it seem to happen immediately and precisely and we were led to believe that much more was happening than met the eye. After all if gold moves in the opposite direction to the U.S. dollar, this implies that it is moving not just with but almost riveted to the euro. What's the story behind this?
