Crude Oil Unable to Follow Through to the Upside / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Fits of volatility can come from 1) energy...2) financials...3) Gov't data... 4) geopolitics... take your pick, but just hope that we are not positioned opposite of the directional spike! Let's have a look at crude oil...

I do not know what to make of the enclosed hourly chart of oil, which shows this morning's spike from $122.10 to $128.60 (+5%) in a matter of minutes! The really interesting aspect of the price action, through, is its inability to follow through to the upside after hurdling yesterday's spike high at $127.89.

Base Metals Bull Markets Impacted by LME Stockpiles / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the base metals bulls began in 2003, few could fathom the wild ride ahead. Fundamentals indeed supported steadily rising prices, but the massive parabolas that unfolded between 2005 and 2007 were amazing to behold. From trough to peak copper, zinc, nickel, lead, and aluminum skyrocketed 475%, 523%, 650%, 829%, and 137% respectively.

This rise of the base metals not only represented yet another powerful breakout within the commodities sector, but a universal acceptance that a global secular commodities bull was upon us. With oil and gold already paving the way, the economic imbalances unfolding in the indispensable metals used in the production of everything structural and mechanical was eye-opening.

What Inflated the Commodities Bubble? / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Salman_Khan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude Oil has corrected over 15% from the top. Gold, Silver, Copper, Wheat and other commodities too have retreated from their respective highs. The heavy selling witnessed in last few days, has raised concerns that the air is leaking from the Commodity bubble and that a multiyear bull market might end soon. It has been pretty well established of late, that the commodity market has been exhibiting many of the characteristics of a bubble. Thus, we may be very well at the beginning of a bursting asset bubble.

Gold Gains on US Stagflationary Economic Slowdown / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES added to an overnight bounce at the New York opening on Thursday, rising above $915 per ounce on news of sharply higher US inflation and a slowing economy.

Gold had earlier recorded an AM Fix here in London of $912 per ounce – more than 2.1% above yesterday's five-week low – as crude oil slipped and the US Dollar held steady on the forex market ahead of today's data.

Gold Hit by Bear Raid, Despite Real Inflation at 10% / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $903.00, down $14.00 but silver was up 5 cents to $17.35 . After sharp falls in early trading in the COMEX yesterday (some of which was due to large stop loss sell orders being triggered around the $900 mark) gold rose to close only down some 1.5% on the day. Silver in similar volatile trading surged from interday lows to close higher. The rally continued in electronic trading and in Asian and early European trading.

Gold Stocks Head for Final Bottom Before Huge Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI believe the next few days are going to be key days for gold stocks just as May was a key time for the S&P 500 and the broad market. If you were following me then you'll know that I took short positions against the general market back in May. However I did not short at the exact top. In fact I got in a little early and let the S&P 500 go up a percent above my entry point. I was convinced when I got in that the market was about to make a critical top - one that would last for the rest of the year - but I wasn't sure at the exact price or moment that it would come. I was only certain that it was coming within a week, so I decided to just start to build a position. Of course it worked fantastic as the market has fallen apart since then.

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $91.00,  down $10.70 and silver was  down 10cents to $17.30. Gold rose slightly in Asian trading before falling.  It  is down again in early trading in Europe .

Slightly lower oil prices after yesterday's sharp falls are contributing to gold's further correction.

Battle for Strategic Control of Zimbabwe's Rich Mineral Treasures / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Mugabe, the President of Zimbabwe, presides over one of the world's richest minerals treasures, the Great Dyke region, which cuts a geological swath across the entire land from northeast to southwest. The real background to the pious concerns of the Bush Administration for human rights in Zimbabwe in the past several years is not Mugabe's possible election fraud or his expropriation of white settler farms. It is the fact that Mr. Mugabe has been quietly doing business, a lot of it, with the one country which has virtually unlimited need of strategic raw materials Zimbabwe can provide— China . Mugabe's Zimbabwe is, along with Sudan, on the central stage of the new war over control of strategic minerals of Africa between Washington and Beijing, with Moscow playing a supporting role in the drama. The stakes are huge.

Gold ETF- The Gold ETF Trading Experience / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTaking advantage of the gold market using the GLD ETF to generate consistent profits in any market condition. Gold's price action in the past 5 months has frustrated many traders. Especially those who have difficulty making money during consolidation periods which are in. The past couple months are consistently the weaker months for gold prices year after year. That being said August through year end have been consistently strong for trading gold and gold ETF's.

Silver Trades Between Support and Resistance Awaiting Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter looking set to challenge its highs silver turned abruptly lower and has fallen substantially over the past couple of weeks for the same reasons as gold, namely collateral damage resulting resulting from the rally in the broad stockmarket as crisis fears eased after the Fannie and Freddie bailout and the falling price of oil.

Gold Hit by Crude Oil Sell Off, Technicals Still Bullish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the broad stockmarket has staged a relief rally from deeply oversold in response to the Fannie and Freddie bailout and oil has tumbled over the past week or two, both as predicted, gold has suffered more collateral damage than expected from these factors resulting in quite heavy losses in the Precious Metals sector. Conspiracy theorists are arguing that gold was deliberately targeted in order to help protect the dollar at a time when it is especially vulnerable due to the European Central Bank raising rates.

Gold Bullion Stabalises Whilst Gold Stocks Heading into Bear Market Territory / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo bad days but the week ended with a little bit of stability. I don't think it will last. However, which direction next is the question.

GOLD : LONG TERM
The long term takes time to change direction, when it decides to change. Despite several weeks of not so good gold trading activity and some time spent below its long term moving average line, gold has not yet reversed its long term bullish rating. While gold was below its moving average line the line slope remained positive. And through it all the long term momentum indicator remained positive, although at times below its trigger line.

China Driving Force for Long-term Commodities Bull Market / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Emanuel_Balarie

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently returned back from China with some pertinent observations about the commodity markets, Jim Rogers, and the economy. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in my commodities newsletter that if anyone had doubts about the long-term direction of the commodity markets, they should simply hop on a plane and fly to China. The logic behind this is quite simple. Since China has been responsible for the majority of the increased commodity demand over the last decade, keeping a pulse on their commodity consumption trends can give you a pretty clear picture of where things are moving in the longer term. Here are some observations on various topics:

Precious Metals Enduring Seasonal Weakness / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the most part, this summer has not been kind to precious-metals investors and speculators. While gold did rally rather sharply from mid-June to mid-July, up 12.6%, it could not challenge its $1005 March high. And soon after this retest failed it plunged $47, 4.8%, in just 2 trading days this week.

And silver hasn't fared much better. As usual it paralleled gold's mid-June to mid-July advance with its own rally, a healthy 16.3% surge. But this really wasn't all that much better than gold's own run, discouraging silver traders looking for outsized gains. And then this week silver mirrored gold's fast selloff with a steep 5.8% plunge of its own.

India 's Falling Gold Demand: A Panic for Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Just like everywhere else, Indian consumers face the problem of too much money chasing prices too high and becoming worth less each day..."

IT'S HARD TO OVER-EGG the importance of Indian jewelry demand in the physical gold market. Between 2000 and 2007, gold jewelry sold in India accounted for one ounce-in-nine sold worldwide. One ounce in every five wound up as an Indian import (its domestic mines produce less than six tonnes per year), ready to be hung off young brides as 24-carat dowries or worked into bracelets and necklaces for the international market.
