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.

European stock markets also rose despite a torrid session in Asia , bouncing 0.7% on average as London 's FTSE regained 1.4% and France 's Cac 40 put on 0.9% from Thursday's close.

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.

By: Brian_Bloom

The preceding articles in this series were intended to enable readers to gain a clearer understanding of the real (as opposed to perceived) problems being faced by humanity. For ease of reference they are summarised in Appendix 1 hereto. 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.

Private Investors Moving into Gold - Autumn in August? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

"...In a credit crunch, it's often said, cash is king. In which case, gold's just been crowned emperor..." 

AT LEAST THE weather here in London suits the markets. More like October than August, the constant drizzle is broken only by chill gusts of wind, rattling the windows like a late autumn gale.

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

Weekly Gold and Silver Technical Analysis Report - 12th August 2007 - Technically Precious with Merv / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

You'll sleep better at nights if you just focused on the intermediate or longer term trends. As an example, both moving averages of gold remained positive as did the price momentum indicator. Not yet time to panic from the perspective of these time periods.

GOLD : LONG TERM

Despite the volatility in the price action the long term P&F chart has not moved. I'll forgo any analysis of the P&F chart this week. You can go to last week\s commentary which remains unchanged.

As for the normal indicators, these have also changed very little. Gold is still above its long term moving average line and the line is still slightly pointing upwards. Price momentum is still in its positive zone but has been showing weakness versus price action for some time. The volume indicator remains below its trigger line and the trigger is still sloping downward. The volume indicator is the one indicator that has gone negative and has been negative for most of the past few months.

The Aborted Plan to Sell Italian Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Sales of gold by European Central Banks are primarily for the adjustment of national reserves in terms of structure or size. They are not intended under the rules of the European Union, intended to pay the bills of the governments of Europe, so when the subject came up, after a consistent record of the Bank of Italy's refusal to even contemplate the sale of the country's gold reserves, everyone was surprised. The reality was suddenly the government of Italy wanted to put their hand into the country's coffers in an exercise that would never have solved the country's debt problems.

Volatility in the Commodities Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Aden_Forecast

The commodity markets were bubbling this past month. Oil, lead, wheat and the CRB index closed at record highs and tin reached an 18 year high, driven by China 's fastest growth since 1994.

Volatility then set in as the subprime woes affected the commodity markets, but China and the world's demand for raw materials is the key to the ongoing bull market rises. Double-digit growth in China and a global economic boom of unprecedented proportions will continue to support the base metals, raw materials and precious metals for years to come.

HUI Gold Stock Index and Stock Market Bears / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

The turbulent financial markets of the past few weeks have certainly been exciting, a welcome respite from the usual lackluster summer doldrums. But whenever volatility increases, especially after a long period of time lacking it, long-latent fears of investors and speculators flare brightly.

The small subset of investors and speculators trading precious-metals stocks has certainly not been immune from this growing unease. On some of the more intense selling days lately in the general stock markets, the HUI gold-stock index fell far more than the flagship S&P 500. This suggests PM-stock traders' fears are spiraling higher even faster than those of the mainstream traders.
