Gold Volatility Jumps as Deflationary Depression Battles with Inflationary Bail-Outs / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSPOT GOLD PRICES slipped back from an early 1.2% gain in London trade Tuesday, holding in a $10 range below $804 an ounce as Western stock markets added to their "Fannie & Freddie" surge.

Asian stock markets closed markedly lower, however, while Treasury bond prices recovered from yesterday's sharp sell-off.

Gold Trades in Narrow Range Despite Supply Shortfalls / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

After initial falls, gold has rallied in morning trade in London as the dollar has given up some of its recent sharp gains. Gold's rise comes despite the further  fall in oil prices but gold remains firmly in its recent narrow range between $780 and $840.

Physical Gold for Sound Money and Trustworthy Governments / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Intraday Spot Gold Trading with GLD ETF / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Today was another one of those great days for a spot gold trade using the free intraday charts by Kitco. I'm not sure if anyone watched the free Kitco 24 Hour Spot Gold Chart which is shown below but I watch it like a hawk. It doesn't take long to get a feel for how gold moves through out the 24hr day. Once you get a feel for it and see the same things happen every week opportunities start to pop up on the radar.

Driving Forces for Gold for the Rest of 2008 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The next Fourth Turning is due to begin shortly after the new millennium, midway through the Oh-Oh decade. Around the year 2005, a sudden spark will catalyze a Crisis mood. Remnants of the old social order will disintegrate. Political and economic trust will implode. Real hardship will beset the land, with severe distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation, and empire." -- William Strauss and Neil Howe, The Fourth Turning , 1997

Gold Battered by Fannie, Freddie Nationalization / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD whipped violently in Asian trade on Monday, shooting 1.8% higher after the US government nationalized the massive Freddie Max and Fannie Mae mortgage lenders, before giving back $10 of that move to trade at $808 an ounce by lunchtime in London.

World stock markets leapt and government-bond prices fell, meantime, pushing the German Dax index almost 3.4% higher as 10-year Bund yields rose one-tenth of a per cent to 4.10%.

Nationalisation of Fannie and Freddie is Bearish for US Dollar, US Stocks and Economy / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold surged at the open in Asia with news of the de facto nationalisation of the US' mortgage giants in what amounts to the largest bailout in world financial history. It has since given up some of these gains in early trading in Europe due to more counter intuitive dollar strength which looks increasingly overbought.

Gold & Silver Long-term Bearish Trend Continues / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday took all of the steam out of the two week rally but then that was it. The rest of the week was basically a lateral drift. More downside or continued upside? Let's see.

GOLD : LONG TERM The week's activity still did nothing for the long term. The P&F chart continues to be bearish and the indicators are all in the negative zone. On the long term the rating remains BEARISH until some more significant market action takes place.

Long-term Crude Oil Price Trend Analysis / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Richard_Shaw

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhere are oil prices going? We don't know.  You don't know.  Nobody knows.  Short-term events could drive oil higher or lower.  The current trend is clearly down, but where it stops is not evident.

What is an investor to do? One reasonable thing to do is nothing, if you don't have particular oil exposure, or if you have good yield from oil companies with well covered dividends.

Gold Miners Bullish GDX ETF / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) action may not feel like it is at or very near to a significant low, the pattern from the March high at 56.87 into Friday's low at 31.65 (-45%) exhibits pattern, momentum and volume characteristics indicative of an important tradable low, if not a more meaningful low. If my work proves accurate, then the GDX is just beginning a recovery rally to 35.50 in the upcoming days.

US Unemployment Report Saves Gold ...but for how long? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Chip_Hanlon

Friday morning's huge surge in jobless numbers has knocked the dollar, thus causing gold to pop up nearly $20 as I write this near the open. The conclusion's simple enough: such economic weakness will prevent the Fed from raising rates anytime soon (Fed funds futures now suggest only a 2% chance the Fed will raise rates by year-end, down from 40% odds just one month ago).

Gold Mining Stocks Investing Challenges / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith seven consecutive years of rising gold prices, the gold mining industry has had ample reason to boost output. The demand for gold has grown and will continue to grow and legendary profits can be won for shareholders. But in provocative fashion not only have the gold miners been unsuccessful in growing supply, global mined gold production is down since the beginning of the bull.

In last week's essay I revisited gold's strategic fundamentals with particular focus on economics, drilling down on global gold production and reserves trends. And interestingly global gold production is down 4% since 2001. In a secular bull market this is not a logical supplier response to an economic imbalance.

Bullish Pattern Developing for Natural Gas ETF / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The U.S. Natural Gas ETF (AMEX: UNG) has come off its recovery high this morning at 34.54. The pattern carved out from yesterday's new corrective low at 32.30 is very constructive and argues for still more strength. The anticipated next upleg should hurdle key near-term resistance at 34.50/55 on the way to 36.50.

Commodities Correcting from Extreme Overbought State is Healthy / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Ty_Andros

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's an interesting time to be in the financial markets. The return of the “Crack up Boom” series is a result of the amazing amount of MONEY and CREDIT creation that is going to be required to RECAPITALIZE and re-inflate the G7 economies. Money and Credit creation are the fuel and lifeblood of the G7 economies. Misstated inflation is reported as GROWTH; as the OVER-the-COUNTER debacle unfolds and vaporizes the balance sheets of the G7 financial and banking systems rendering many of the biggest players INSOLVENT. Their business models and income flows in tatters as their obligations just keep on piling up. But the WOLF wave continues its march throughout the G7 as incomes collapse under higher costs and collapsing business conditions. Combine that with a US election and you get a recipe for paralysis on the part of irresponsible PUBLIC SERVANTS.

Crude oil dipped towards $106 per barrel, while the Australian Dollar – a key "commodity currency" – hit new 12-month lows.

Junior Mining Investing, Gold Stocks Divergence Opportunity / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Dudley_Baker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFew investors can stand up to the fortitude of an investor in the junior mining sector. Basically, if you did not sell everything in May 2006, then your portfolio is probably under water. The drawn downs in the junior's has been beyond belief. Most of the shares are down 50% or more from the May 2006 highs and many are off 70%, 80% and even 90%.

Are investors insane to stay with these ‘investments' or should we be looking elsewhere?

But where is one going to come from next. As I said in the first article – Big Bang Part 1. “Haven't the easy pickings already been taken this far into the PM Bull? After all the low hanging fruit has been taken hasn't it? You can see that from the charts on the HUI and the XAU can't you? That is not to say these magnificent indices will not go higher but I am talking about the easy pickings and leverage.”
