Gold Up as the $500 Trillion Derivatives Time Bomb Keeps Ticking / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold was up $4.10 to $974.30 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday silver was down 3 cents to $19.64 per ounce. In Asian and early European trading gold has traded sideways to slightly up. The London AM Gold Fix at 1030 GMT this morning was at $975.75, £483.26 and €630.90 (from $980.50, £485.47 and €633.40 yesterday).

Gold may continue to consolidate prior to the much anticipated rally to the $1,000 mark. But given the continuing weakness in the dollar (se FX below), record high oil prices and the continuing credit crisis, gold will likely continue to surprise to the upside. Read full article...

Gold Parabolic Trend Targets $1500 as US Dollar Destined for Financial Oblivion / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

When a ball is thrown into the air, the speed of that ball decelerates until gravity becomes the more powerful force. Balls, when thrown into the air, do not suddenly rise at a faster rate. Such is the way physics works, and the way markets work. Were this not true, the sky would be filled with balls and the NASDAQ would still be above 5000. $Gold, as wonderful as it is, is not immune to financial gravity.

Will Gold Catch-up with Crude Oil? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Best Financial Markets Analysis Articlegold and oilOil and gold have had a long association in the minds and hearts of investors. Where one goes, the other seems to follow. So when OPEC made its announcement last week to maintain production at current levels, gold market participants might have taken it as a suggestion that gold would be basing at just under $1000 instead of forming a top. When comparing oil and gold on the inflation-adjusted charts, however, there appears to be more to the story than the possibility that we have reached an interim bottom.

Gold and Commodities Follow Stocks Lower on Vicious Cycle of Forced Selling / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES gave back and then reversed early gains on Monday, losing $9 per ounce by lunchtime in London to trade at $964.50.

Energy and soft commodity prices also slipped – taking WTI crude oil just below $104.50 per barrel – as short-term bond yields fell and Asian stock markets sank once again, led by a near-10% drop in Malaysia after the ruling coalition lost one-third of its seats in the weekend elections.

Peak Oil - True or False? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Stephen_Lendman


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe arguments are so one-sided, it's practically a given that "peak oil" is real and threatening. Or is it? This article examines both sides. It lets readers decide and deals only with supply issues, not crucial environmental ones and the need to develop alternative energy sources. First some background.

The name most associated with "peak oil" is M. King Hubbert. He became the world's best known geologist when he worked for Houston-based Shell Oil Company from 1943 to 1964. His theory goes something like this. Oil is a finite resource. Peak oil, or Hubbert's peak, is the point at which maximum world production is reached, after which its rate terminally declines.

Gold Short-term Giving Worrying Technical Signals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite some volatile daily moves, on a chart this past week it looked like a sideways trend, even possibly a topping action. Let's see.

GOLD : LONG TERM
Taking away most of the trend, support and resistance lines from the P&F chart and leaving only a few primary lines gives an interesting view of the bull market since 2001. With the present units and reversals used in the chart the original primary up trend line, if extended, shows the action of the past several months just hugging the line, slightly above at times and slightly below at other times.

What Will Take Gold Through the $1,000 Barrier? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis Articleeuro dollar symbolGold and silver prices are making new ground every day and are consolidating, seemingly in preparation for an attack on $1,000. Thereafter, who will buy gold and pay over $1,000? It seems a daunting price for any new Investor or even one with a sizeable holding already.

A Psychological Barrier
Why is $1,000 such a barrier? The move to four figures implies it is in a new league, in top gear and can't hold that level. If one looks at the gold price in the € the picture changes. In those, now distant days, when the € was worth $1.25, the € price of gold battled heavily to get past €530; it now sits at €640. It seems that a 20% rise is not so outrageous as we thought. Look at gold in the Australian $ or the Japanese Yen. There hasn't been any where near such a rise as we have seen in the US$ price of gold?

Natural Gas Pushing Highs / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough my next optimal near-term target zone in the U.S. Natural Gas Fund ETF (AMEX: UNG) is 49.50-50.00, the larger pattern is so bullish and has so much upside potential that I will not be surprised to see the price structure accelerate to the upside in a vertical assault on the 56.00 to 58.00 measured intermediate-term target zone. Frankly, I am eyeballing 50.00 as a viable exit area for my current long (model portfolio) position, but if and when we approach the nearest-term target, I will assess the two-way risks of NOT taking profits sooner rather than later. In the meantime, as we speak the UNG is pushing up against yesterday's high at 48.12, which should be hurdled and should trigger the upmove to 50.00.

Bernanke's Stagflationary Gold Show Must Go On? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke has attacked the threat of deflation with great zeal. We knew that he would. But what we don't know is how Mr. Bernanke will respond to today's stagflationary pressures, if at all, and/or whether or not the slumping dollar will eventually ignite a monetary policy response.  Yes, Mr. Bernanke has assured policy makers and investors that fighting recession is higher on the Fed's check list than directly attacking inflation.  However, if USD creation is the primary cause of the inflationary problem now rupturing through out the global economy Bernanke may have little choice but to eventually switch focus.

Gold Continues on its Exciting Climb Higher! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Even the threatened IMF gold sells have failed to slow gold's momentum. Winter continues beating down on us providing colder and colder days here in the south. The mountains receive the snow but the Piedmont remains clear.

Well the last of the democratic nominations are winding up. How will gold be affected regardless of who enters the White House? Who ever enters the house on the hill will have no strategy except to continue the present course which is unabated money creation which in turn leads to greater inflation.

New Way to Invest in the Commodities Super Cycle / Commodities / Resources Investing

And they just continue to surge in 2008! This week, gold, oil, coal, corn and soybeans all hit new all-time highs, and many other commodities marched higher.
