By: Adrian_Ash

By the AM Fix in London , set at $920.25 per ounce, European stocks had pushed 0.6% higher despite a 5.3% drop in ING, the Netherlands ' largest bank, now said to be facing a severe loss on its US subprime investments.

Gold is a Better Inflation Hedge Than Real Estate / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Dr_Krassimir_Petrov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. will likely spin into a long era of high inflation. The coming years will look like the 1970s. There is also a good risk of hyperinflation, which is a particularly severe bout of high inflation. Thus, the vital question for every investor is: How to hedge, or protect your wealth, against inflation? Some, especially realtors, urge to hedge this risk with real estate. So, should we really hedge with real estate?

Gold Expected to Retrace to $800 Area / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

We've already seen the start of support above the 5-week moving average, about $900, and could see a healthy retracement next week that still won't preclude further declines if not making a significant new high. Silver has not invalidated a corrective count either. That wouldn't occur until nearly $17.50. The 5-day moving average … will be crucial early next week in determining support and resistance. A platinum group metals play based on shrinking supply could be a haven if the more monetary metals are due for a near term correction.” ~ Precious Points: New Month, New Direction?

Gold Bullish, But Gold Stocks Showing Bearish Divergence / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Up and down but in the end gold seems to be having trouble moving. Does it have anything to do with the recent strengthening in the U.S. Dollar Index?

GOLD : LONG TERM
From a long term perspective there is no real serious problem with gold. The indicators change very slowly so one does not expect sudden changes in the technical situation. Gold continues to trade well above its long term moving average line and the line continues to trend upwards. The long term momentum (price strength) indicator is also well inside its positive zone with no hint of a reversal in site. It recently moved into new highs confirming the strength of the recent gold price action. The volume indicator (an indication of speculative interest) continues above its long term trigger line and the trigger continues to point upward. The only cautionary signs are in the more aggressive time periods which will be reviewed below.

Maximise Gold Profits by Using Leveradge HUI Unhedged Gold-stock Index / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a stock-market sector, gold stocks are obscure, increasingly volatile, and seemingly perpetually unloved. Yet investors and speculators choose to own them anyway. Why? Because in the past gold stocks have greatly amplified gold's underlying gains. Traders are betting this outperforming behavior will continue in the future.

The outperformance so far in this bull market has been enormous. At best in recent weeks, the flagship HUI unhedged gold-stock index was up 1237% since its bull was born in November 2000. This incredible run was driven by a 262% gain in gold since its own bull launched in April 2001. Thus bull to date per simple math, the HUI has leveraged gold's underlying gains by 4.7x!

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne major theme that unites a lot of silver investors is the matter of the major short sellers of silver.

The Single Best Investment for 2008! / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: In late 1865, to cover the staggering costs of the Civil War ... to bail out financial institutions on the verge of bankruptcy ... and to help stem the financial losses in towns and municipalities ... Washington issued tidal waves of government bonds, to the tune of almost $29.5 billion per day.

Money was printed with reckless abandon, and inflation shot to the moon.

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Oil prices are pulling back right now — below $90 a barrel. Let me tell you, I think oil is very inexpensive at that price, especially when you consider how absolutely amazing oil really is — how our entire civilization runs on it.

Along with the 86 million barrels per day that the world uses for fuel, petroleum plays a starring role in agriculture, industry, plastics, and building materials. It heats our homes, grows our food, and provides us with entertainment.

The attached chart (decisionpoint.com ) tells me that $XAU may start to rise sharply relative to gold. More likely, because the shares have been underperforming, the gold price is likely to pull back sharply relative to shares. The shares may have been right all along.
