By: Adrian_Ash

Gold Starts Week Unchanged as Crude Oil Falls , Further Fed US Interest Rate Cuts Expected / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES dipped before rebounding early Monday, recording an AM Fix in London of $658.50 per ounce, virtually unchanged from Friday's US close.

"Some people are still afraid there might be more bad news ahead, and liquidity in the gold market is poor because most of the traders are not back from their summer holiday," said Ng Cheng Thye, head of Standard Bank's precious metals desk in Singapore , to Bloomberg earlier.

Gold and Silver Caught in Credit Crunch Downdrift / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

At the time of writing this, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 9% from its record closing high of 14,000 set on the 19th of July. Since then, fears over defaulting sub-prime funds spilling into main markets has had large numbers bailing out of higher risk assets into the relative safety of government bonds and cash.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: Gold Got Sold, but Should You Hold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

It's not at all likely that the credit crunch which plagued the markets last week will be resolved when trading on Monday resumes. But … it appears the Fed is sensitive to the market and will continue providing liquidity as needed, virtually on demand. The pace at which … the Fed is able to remove the billions of new dollars from the money supply, if at all, will largely determine the direction for metals in the coming weeks. All that is reasonably certain is that if the liquidity situation only deteriorates from here, which would probably have to occur before a rate cut is truly on the table, precious metals, along with most assets, will suffer in the short run. ~ Precious Points: Bernanke the Maestro , August 11, 2007

Weekly Gold and Silver Technical Analysis Report - 18th August 2007 - Technically Precious with Merv / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Scary? Maybe, but we've been there before. $21 (or 3%) drop in gold price is not so unusual. What next? Let's take a quick look at where we've been and see if we can guess what to expect ahead.

Who's Panicking?

It's just my unsophisticated guess as to who has been panicking these past few days but it looks like the panicky people are in two classes. First are the commentators and media personalities. They doth not knoweth of what they speaketh off most of the time. The second are the industry professionals, you know the kind, those that continually advise you to look at the long term and not at the short term fluctuations. They are often the first to panic during short term troubles.

MPTrader - Gold Losing Luster But Not Yet Violating Support / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

After a week of exhibiting great relative strength, spot gold prices -- and with them the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) -- finally caved in to the intense selling pressure exerted by "the liquidators": those managers and investors who bailed out of the precious metals to raise cash, likely to meet anticipated margin calls, etc…or merely to preserve capital during very tumultuous times.

We can now turn our attention to developing a plan to solve these problems in the shortest possible time and at the lowest possible cost.

Summary and Conclusions

This concluding article articulates a Vision which will allow for most of the defined problems to be addressed. As a side effect, the USA can once again aspire to become an export oriented country operating at a surplus. Debt levels can begin to shrink.

Crude Oil Reaches Seasonal Peak While Natural Gas Begins Its Climb / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Donald_W_Dony

The normal annual demand forces for oil have reached a crest again. Mid-year driving pressures, which usually peaks in between early August to as late as mid-October, has forced this commodity once more to roar over $78 in early August in similar fashion to last year. Oil then follows a typical path of drifting downward to a low late in the 4th quarter. Natural gas, on the other hand, begins to escalate upwards during this time and tops in October to December depending on winter weather.

Gold Treads Water as "Carry Trade" Unwinds; Bank of Japan Recalls Loans / Commodities / Yen Carry Trade

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES for immediate delivery were little moved against the US Dollar early on Tuesday, slipping 0.3% to record an AM Fix in London of $667.35 per ounce.

But gold rose against all other major currencies besides the Japanese Yen, however, as European bourses struggled to recover after opening the day 0.5% lower.

Asian stock markets outside China also pulled back or held steady at best, with shares in Sydney ending 0.8% lighter after sharp falls in the banking and home-loans sector. South Korea 's Kospi index dropped 1.7%. Hong Kong shares ended 0.5% higher.

MPTrader - Oil Stocks In Recovery Bounce / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Once again we have oil prices (+$1.40) climbing sharply along with equities, which purely is a function of market liquidity -- that is, the re-entry of market liquidity. Central Bank infusion has alleviated the immediate real or psychological need to jettison commodities to raise cash. From a technical perspective, oil and the US Oil Trust (AMEX: USO) were overdue for a recovery rally into the Thurs-Fri lows around $54 (basis the USO).

Gold Analysis - How Asia Saved America - Maybe! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Doesn't that chart below look sweet?

GoldOf course I am optimistic. But I will admit that my optimism is built on a foundation of strong favorable fundamentals. And what you are observing below is one of those strong fundamentals acting in over drive. And so be it. I will not stand in its way.

Reading an interesting book, “How the Irish Saved Civilization,” Thomas Carhill. The premise of the story is that as the Roman civilization was crumbling one Irish man through a gargantuan effort began preserving western civilization for modern posterity. And of course the irony is that the Irish were the least civilized of that era yet they played an important and life preserving role in preserving ancient civilized knowledge, technology and literature.

Daily London Gold Market Report - Chinese Inflation Data Bullish for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES slipped against the US Dollar early Monday, opening the week in London just shy of last week's start around $671 per ounce as global equity markets rose in response to fresh injections of cash from the world's leading central banks.

"Despite the recent sell off in gold from fund managers attempting to raise capital to cover margin calls on loss making positions in their portfolios, the yellow metal should bounce back and react positively given the amount of cash being fed into the global markets," says today's note from Standard Bank.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Bernanke the Maestro / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“The credit crunch panic has worked to the benefit of the metals and those who own them, but blindly relying on this to continue without any sort of correction is a risky bet. Another successful retest of the 5-week moving average, currently below $670, would further solidify the strength of the current uptrend.

“The Fed will attempt to placate what is approaching outright panic in some circles and will feel compelled to amend the language of its statement, but ... will resist an outright rate cut for as long as possible, though it will very likely continue quietly expanding bank reserves to mitigate damage to the system and spur liquidity.” ~ Precious Points: Tough Love from Bernanke and Co? , August 5, 2007
