Gold Miners and Explorers Face Serious Supply Problems / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeologist Brent Cook, of Exploration Insights, in this exclusive article for The Gold Report, takes a look at the major gold mining companies' dilemma—declining production as the gold price is hitting record levels. He also explains how the junior gold explorers are confronting a similar dilemma—fewer legitimate exploration properties with the real potential to host a major economic deposit. The rare micro-cap company that discovers a meaningful gold deposit is immediately in the sights of the cash-rich gold mining companies in need of new reserves. More importantly, anyone owning these junior companies, a few of whom are mentioned later, stands to make a substantial profit.

Gold Price Dips! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Steve_Betts

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The greatest of all infidelities is the fear that the truth will be bad." --- Herbert Spencer - (1820-1903) British author, economist, philosopher

We might as well start the week out right and talk about gold. Today we see typical behavior with respect to the yellow metal as it grew gradually stronger in the morning as the spot price traded as high as 1,263.90. Then at 11 am EST someone came in and knocked the price down to 1,234.70 in a matter of thirty minutes or so. Right now at 12:35 am EST the spot price is trading at 1,242.50, and if things run true to form, the spot price will eventually crawl its way back up toward unchanged, or maybe even slightly higher. We saw similar reactions last week, it’s a commonplace occurrence going back more than a month, and investors find it upsetting. I know it upsets them because I read their e-mails! The problem is a matter of perception.

Did the G-8 Push Us Closer to Gold Confiscation? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global economic recovery is not looking good. The G-8 meeting this weekend saw divisions that could lead [as the I.M.F. put it] to losses of trillions of dollars and millions of jobs. Now it is reported that Mr. Bernanke and his close allies at the board in Washington are worried by signs that the U.S. recovery is running out of steam. The E.C.R.I. leading indicator published by the Economic Cycle Research Institute has collapsed to a 45-week low of -5.7 in the most precipitous slide for half a century. Such a reading typically portends contraction within three months or so.

Gold Price Manipulation Prior to Options Expiration Exposed / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Jason_Hamlin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold futures expire today, June 28th. If you follow the manipulation theories, it is just prior to expiration time, either in futures or options, that paper shorts increase their net short positions in order to manipulate precious metals (and stocks) downward. This allows the manipulators to profit as the contracts they sold to unwitting investors expire worthless. The sudden drop in price also provides an opportunity for the shorts to cover their positions, profiting via paying back their creditors with lower priced gold or equities.

Gold and Crude Oil are Mandatory Investments / Commodities / Investing 2010

By: Larry_Edelson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI put out my first major buy signal in gold way back in early 2000, when gold was trading at about $260 an ounce. I said then that gold was an easy double, moving to at least $500 over the next two years.

I told my readers to add to their gold positions in October 2004, when gold crossed above the $400 level …

Gold Investing, The Art Of Speculation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the great gold bug victory of the 1970s, the economic establishment had been humiliated and disgraced.  This was because none of them knew any economics.  They all had gotten their fancy titles and positions by apologizing for the bankers’ privilege to create money.  The bankers (and their associated vested interests) got rich.  The American people got poor.  (This is the first generation of Americans poorer than their parents.)  And so it paid off for the bankers to hire a gang of charlatans, buy them fancy titles and infiltrate them into prestigious positions in academia so that they could use their prestige to defend the bankers’ privilege to create money.

Gold Imminent Reversal and Retreat, Stocks Bear Market Pattern Developing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA great way to make yourself popular is to tell people what they want to hear, and the trick is to make yourself scarce before the wheel comes off, or at least slip quickly into the background when it does. Thus you’ll find no shortage of articles out there telling you what a great investment gold is and the countless reasons for buying it. They are “playing to the gallery” which is normal near a market peak. However, most of the evidence that we are examining points to an imminent reversal and retreat - not a bearmarket though as the bullmarket in gold is thought to have much further to run and will probably end in a spectacular parabolic blow off with prices at dizzying heights compared to today, but this is still a long way ahead of us - over a shorter time horizon we may first have to deal with a significant correction.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough gold has recovered from its mid-May plunge the strength of the recovery has been very weak and the recovery itself is suspect because of that.  Although gold remains BULLISH for all time periods that may not last long.  Be on guard for any surprises.

Deepwater Drilling Gulf Of Mexico Fundamentally Flawed Protocol In Use Of Cement / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dr_Stephen_Rinehart

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBackground: Cement is a quasi-hard material that is 8X to 10X stronger in compression than tension. It has been the industry standard for sealing oil wells for decades. As deepwater drilling progresses in the Gulf of Mexico (and worldwide), there is an increasing need for much higher strength “cements” and significant research has been devoted to this area in past decade. MMS (Mines Management Services) had projects ongoing in 2001-2002 to determine industry cements to produce a tight seal in an annulus (Ref: Long Term Integrity pf Deepwater Cement Systems Under Stress/Compaction Conditions, Report 3 Issued Nov 19, 2002 by Cementing Solutions).

Gold, GLD, GDX and SLV, Does November 2009 Repeat in July 2010? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week I offered some analysis using the True Strength Index indicator on the daily and hourly charts of GLD, GDX and GDXJ.  This week I would like to offer what I believe to be a realistic look at what could be headed our way in the upcoming month of July.  The charts in this article were made using the publically available software at FreeStockCharts.com.

The best way to understand the big picture is to look at the big picture, so let’s do that.  What follows is a weekly chart of GLD.  I set the time frame back over a year and use the True Strength Index indicator below the weekly price data.

Will the Gold Price Rise in the Short-Term? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePlease note that this article will not give you a detailed chart of future gold prices or specific price levels, but it will help you to understand the short-term gold price.

The G-8 & G-20 meetings are scheduled for this weekend and the press and observers are disappointed before they have even begun. Division between the U.S. approach to growth and sovereign debt containment and repayment and the European approach should be added to fears that sovereign debt cut backs will not be achieved in the end. The global financial mood is depressing and giving rise to falling confidence in the future of the global economy.

Rare Earth Metals Investing Explained / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRare earth elements (REEs) are not all that rare. They are virtually everywhere—even in economic concentrations in safe jurisdictions, says Byron Capital Analyst Jon Hykawy. What's more, the prices for some high-demand metals derived from REE deposits continue to reach new heights, almost daily. These metals are essential to the manufacture of magnets used in hybrid and electric cars and other high-end "green" technology—a thriving market indeed. If that seems like a recipe for investment success, read what Jon has to say about the REE market in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report. It's complicated. Not one REE deposit to date comes without significant baggage. But there's still money to be made if you're willing to settle for a long-term relationship.
