Uranium Stocks Await Breakout From Consolidation Area / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

The Index close was on the up side again but almost everything else was telling me the market was more down than up. The potential topping activity is still evident on the chart. Although the close was on the plus side the daily high and daily low were both lower than yesterday's values. Although I have drawn a resistance line from the top of the mid-Jan activity maybe the early Feb highs are really the resistance, at least they are so far.

US $2 Trillion Bailout- Monetary Inflation to Send Gold Soaring / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike a whirlwind, the crisis triggered by the housing crisis and mortgage debacle has extended to almost every phase of the landscape in US economic and financial life. And the rookies running the US Federal Reserve initially said the problem would be contained. My claim made in late June 2007 (see article, click here ) was that it involved absolute contagion to the system, which is what we see vividly now. Let's review some high level stresses in several arenas, examine the response potentials, and check on the gold and US Dollar impact. One should note, the gold & silver prices will soon demonstrate strong independence from the US Dollar Just like in 2005, gold can rise even with some bounce in the buck. Unlike 2005 though, the buck is likely not to make much in the way of advances.

Uranium Stocks Hit Bottom - Time to Buy? / Commodities / Uranium

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past six months Uranium stocks had fallen completely off the radar. It had been months since I last wrote about them in my newsletter. Such can occur when a major peak develops and devastating declines ensue. The combination of the subprime mortgage meltdown and ensuing credit crisis combined with a rapid 40% decline in the spot uranium price inflicted collateral damage on the entire sector. Only a few stocks were able to avoid more than a 50% decline. However, over the past few weeks selling pressure has finally abated and given way to classic bottoming patterns in many of the uranium stocks. Last week's action was especially encouraging as many stocks rebounded on rising volume from successfully tested bottom points.

Gold Price Trend Remains Firm / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Gold continues to pass every stress and strength test that is thrown before it.

Well, the central banks are spreading the word that they are going to sell some of their gold. Should we be quaking in our boots and losing sleep? The International Monetary Fund has announced it will sell a small percentage of their gold in the coming months.

By: Money_and_Markets

How High Can Gold Go Before Peaking - Gold Dow Jones Ratio Important Indicator / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Dr_Krassimir_Petrov

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article How about $10,000? or $1,000? Or even $100,000? - Calls for the price of gold vary, anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 or even to $100,000. There is one true fundamental problem with all calls for the price of gold – they all ignore the future inflation environment. 

For example, if a genuine Great-Depression-like deflation grips the U.S. economy, then $1,500 for the top of the gold bull market might be too high. On the other hand, if a long 1970 stagflation is in the cards, then $5,000 is too low. The point is that a call for the price of gold without a clear assumption for the macroeconomic environment is a wild and misleading shot in the dark.

IMF Selling 400 Tonnes of Mexican and Brazilian Gold as its Own! / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been a lot of talk of late of potential sales of I.M.F. gold. The more we look at the subject, contrary to our previous view, the more likey it seems possible [not yet probable], but if it does happen, it will not happen again thereafter for solid reasons. If the sales do take place they will happen from September 2008 onwards.

It will still have to get past the U.S. Congress a most formidable and possibly insurmountable obstacle.

Gold Warning Potential Topping Pattern / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs gold taking a rest and moving sideways or is it preparing for a significant move lower, or higher. Where's that coin? Time for the flipping. It will probably be as accurate as anyone.

GOLD : LONG TERM - Long term technical indicators and trend changes very slowly so over the past week there was little or no change to the charts or indicators. The long term P&F chart basically has not moved. It is, however, showing a topping pattern as the Xs have hit the $930 level two times now without a penetration.

Oil Stocks vs. Crude Oil and S&P Stock Market Index / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude oil's fundamentals are extraordinarily bullish. Global demand for oil is growing relentlessly, and most consumers have little choice but to pay virtually any price for this critical fuel. Meanwhile global production growth is slowing as old oilfields deplete and major new finds become exceedingly rare. This structural deficit has driven oil prices to record highs, leading to fortunes earned by the companies that produce this scarce and valuable commodity. Investors and speculators have naturally migrated into oil stocks to ride this secular trend. But lately owning the oil stocks has been an exercise in frustration.
