Is Investing in Gold Only for Losers? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe move in gold since late October cannot be maintained.  Is there a rest or reaction ahead?  Let’s see what the indicators say.

ONLY FOR LOSERS

I read an interesting article in one of the daily newspapers about investing in gold (bullion).  The author made the case that investing in gold is a losing proposition and inferred anyone investing in gold must be nuts.  His basic point was that if you had invested in gold “at the top” in 1980 when it was above $800 and held on to it you would have lost your shirt in the next couple of decades as gold dropped below the $300 mark.  Now, do you see the fallacy in this kind of argument?  There are a couple.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the last time I wrote about SLV, silver price has strengthened dramatically and has hit a new high for the year

In that post, I mentioned the overall technical posture of SLV and said

Overall SLV has a positive technical profile, and as long as it maintains its posture, I might be tempted to treat pullbacks as buying opportunities.

Natural Gas Screaming Long-term Inflation Mega-trend Buy, But UNG... / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is the second in a series of analysis on the Inflationary Mega-trend that is anticipated to unfold over the next decade. The last article (Deflationists Are WRONG, Prepare for the INFLATION Mega-Trend) concluded that ever escalating debt fuelled stimulus coupled with never ending Quantitative Easing sows the seeds for a building inflationary outlook far beyond the deflationary impact of debt deleveraging as the DEFLATION of 2008 becomes increasingly old news which is evident in the reaction of near across the board asset and commodity prices during 2009 which WILL translate into higher consumer price inflation during 2010.

Hunting for Golden Resource Elephants in Chile / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Sean_Brodrick

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChile is prime hunting ground for “elephants” — large, undiscovered deposits of all sorts of minerals — copper, gold, silver and more. And last week, I visited this supermodel-skinny country, which is 4,022 miles long and an average width of only 100 miles across, on the trail of one of the world’s great undeveloped gold deposits.

What Will Drive the Gold Price in the Days Ahead? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is higher than ever before and is still climbing. Many investors are waiting for a fall in the gold price, because they are looking at the past market shape, that has not factored in the major sea-change in the shape of demand. Even many institutional analysts have not realized just what has happened to the market and turn only to their charts to decipher the next moves. You our subscribers, we hope, have realized from our writing and forecasts that a great deal more is still to come in this gold market in the years to come.

Gold Trend Channel Break OutOut What Does This Mean For You? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet me begin this week's essay by quoting a part of last week's update, in which I mentioned that the regular interpretation of the trend channel in gold might be misleading this time:

Still, there is a specific phenomenon in the technical analysis that I've noticed during my observations - when a pattern becomes "evident" so that everyone and their brother sees it and are able to act upon it, the price does exactly the opposite to what it is expected to do. There is a good reasoning for that to take place.

Gold’s Evolving Supply and Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Miles_Banner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince 2001 gold has been on a bull run. The gold price has had to factor in the results of the credit crunch for the past 2 years. That means for the previous 6 years gold has been rising independent of the worries of investors looking for safe havens. In that time demand has risen from investors, jewellers and industry.

Gold as a “Go To” Asset Class / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: HRA_Advisory

We believe there is room for more gold price gain, near term.   A “true” gold market in which the yellow metal is being treated as an asset class in its own right is building around the uncertainties in other markets.  That is different from recent warehousing cycles when gold moved most strongly during the final up stage of a resource/economic cycle.  This time around gold is being treated as a market and currency hedge, not as a goody bag being handed out at the end of a party.  The most interesting note on that score of late is news from India that October saw a large uptick for buying gold in forms such as bars that are used to invest.

Gold Dip "Offers Buying Opportunity" as Zero Rates Seen Until End-2010 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD slipped early Thursday in London, losing almost 2% from yesterday's new Dollar record as global stock markets also fell despite a report from the OECD which doubled 2010 growth forecasts for the world's richest economies.

The US Dollar rose sharply on the forex market, but the drop in gold outpaced the drop in non-Dollar currencies, helping the gold price in Sterling retreat 1.1% from Wednesday's 9-month highs.
