China Earn's Interest by Shorting Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven the most rabid silver bugs admit the possibility that the Chinese are the Big Silver Shorts. This suggests that the Big Gold Shorts are also governments. Neither are naked by any stretch of the imagination. The double whammy of gold and silver accumulation by unnamed governments is the big puzzle of the present financial crisis in the world as it holds the key to the resolution.

For a better understanding of the Chinese silver picture you have to know a little background of the role of silver in China. The facts are as follows. China has been on a silver standard since time immemorial. China stayed on the silver standard after other trading nations of the world demonetized silver and embraced the gold standard at the end of the 19th century.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePleased to announce that votes are in. Ineptness Award for first century of Federal Reserve's existence goes to Bailout Bernanke and his Buckaroos. Last week's interest rate cut cinched it for them. Did the FOMC cut U.S. interest rates because of falling global financial markets or was it pure politics?

How To Invest During Economic Downturns: Commodities versus Stocks / Commodities / Learning to Invest

By: Mary_Rivas

In an article published yesterday (January 23, 2008) in the Financial Times , George Soros stated that a recession in the U.S. is now more or less inevitable. He noted that China , India and some of the oil-producing countries however are in a very strong countertrend. Soros went on to explain that “the current financial crisis is less likely to cause a global recession than a radical realignment of the global economy, with a relative decline of the U.S. and the rise of China and other countries in the developing world. “

Silver Market Supplies in Surplus? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

I want to address a recent publication which has raised concerns amongst silver investors. It is The Silver Book for 2008 published by the VM Group.

The main item I want to address is the statement in that document that the silver market was in surplus in 2007 by 6,141 tonnes or over 197 million ounces. That is a lot of silver; in fact it constitutes about 18% of their estimated mine and scrap supply for 2007. Does this seem a lot of silver to you? It certainly did to me!

Gold Boosted by South African Power Outages / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold was up $3.50 to $910.50 per ounce in trading in New York on Friday and silver was up 16 cents to $16.41 per ounce. Both surged again in the early hours of Asian trading overnight and gold rose as high as $921.35 and it remains near record highs in early European trading.

Gold was up 3.4% last week and silver was up nearly 2% and both are up some 10% year to date. In normal market conditions, correction and consolidation would be expected and likely. However, these are not normal market conditions – and that is putting it mildly.

Gold Technical's Suggest Downtrend is Looming / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite a 3.4% gain on the week one gets the impression that gold is ready to go lower. That's not what most analysts are saying. Who to trust? I always prefer the charts to tell me where gold is going not where it should go.

GOLD: LONG TERM
The long term continues in its bullish mode with some hints of weakness but no overriding concern. Gold continues to trade well above its long term moving average line and the line continues to slope upwards. The long term momentum indicator continues in its positive zone above its positive sloping trigger line but is showing some minor hint of weakness by not making a new high with the gold price. The volume indicator is also above its positive sloping trigger line but below its previous high and not confirming the gold move to new highs. The long term P&F chart continues to move higher with no hint of a reversal in the works. So, from the long term point of view the only rating that I can give this time period is a BULLISH rating.

Gold - You Can't Keep a Good Metal Down / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“The first resistance level in gold [is] at about $890, while … support [is] at about $861. The wide latitude … represents a range for traders. With additional rate cuts almost undoubtedly on the way, it's reasonable to see a more triangular correction in gold, if not new highs before the end of the quarter. That said, it's important to understand that even a larger degree triangle, as opposed to a deeper selloff, could still see gold trading to the $775-780 area in relatively short order. Those who've ridden this high should appropriately see themselves closer to the end of this move than the beginning.” ~ Precious Points: Let Them Eat Cake! January 18, 2008

Working Paper Synopsis: The Search for the Beta of Commodity Futures / Commodities / Learn to Trade

By: Mack_Frankfurter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn comparing modern finance with behavioral finance, Dr. George M. Frankfurter, Lloyd F. Collette Professor Emeritus Louisiana State University, and Dr. Elton G. McGoun, Professor of Finance Bucknell University, in their article “ Resistance is Futile: The Assimilation of Behavioral Finance, ” [1] make the following astute observation which can similarly be applied to our analysis of the various commodity asset pricing models we investigated: “What has happened is that we've used these assumptions for so long that we've forgotten that we've merely made assumptions, and we've come to believe that the world is necessarily this way.” Likewise, our working paper, “ Is Managed Futures an Asset Class? The Search for the Beta of Commodity Futures ,” suggests that the models we examined have inherent shortcomings when analyzing the commodity futures markets. This article summarizes that study which is available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1029243 .
