Precious Metals Investors Sit Tight - The Dow / Gold Ratio Story / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't say you were not warned. Warned about what? The coming depression in the global economy perhaps? No – that's not what I am referring to; however, this should be a very big concern to all never the less. Could it be an impending derivatives debacle emanating in the States due to an unexpected bond market implosion brought about by investor concern? No – that's not it either; but again, this is an item everybody should be concerned about considering implications for housing, credit markets, and the economy at large in turn. And certainly these are all legitimate and significant concerns worthy of warning.

Gold Falls Below $900 as Global Stock Market Bounce Continues / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES sank at the start of London trade on Monday, adding to Friday's sharp losses and dropping $12 per ounce from an overnight rally in Asia to fall below $900 for the first time in seven sessions.

As the wave of sell orders pushed physical Gold Bullion as low as $897.20 before a rebound to $903, world stock markets continued Friday's rally, pushing Europe's 300 largest blue-chips some 0.9% higher by lunchtime in Frankfurt.

Gold Short-term Weakness, Long-term Bullish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA generally okay week BUT with a weak momentum and a collapse on Friday. Let's see if it is of any REAL significance.

GOLD : LONG TERM
The long term P&F chart made a new high X during the week and continues in a bullish trend. There is yet no hint of trouble from the P&F chart but it would not show it for some time. We go to the normal indicators to see if there is any hint of a problem.

Aluminum and Natural Gas - the Next Commodities to Boom? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil prices are up nearly 50 percent over the past year; crude prices accelerated at the end of 2007 as inventories tightened globally. Meanwhile, wheat prices are up more than 100 percent over the same time period amid strong growth in demand from the developing world, ultra-low stocks in some countries and, of course, a boom in biofuels demand powered by government subsidies.

Although wheat isn't an important feedstock for making ethanol, all agricultural commodities are affected by the biofuels boom. The reason is simply that farmers are diverting acres to corn production in an effort to capture sky-high corn prices.

Silver Set for Major Advance towards $30 Within Next Two Months / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver continues to advance this week into the $17 territory and onto a level somewhere we believe in the $20 to $30 range. That difference between $20 and $30 is a lot to investors who are especially leveraged to silver through stocks, options and futures but also to those who hold large quantities of silver be it in ETFs, pool accounts or in other secure deposits.

At this point let me give a brief update on how one of our indicators is getting on. I call it the RMAR or "Relative Moving Average Refined". This technical analysis indicator is a sell signal generator working in the multi year range. Typically a sell signal is flagged every few years depending on whether gold and silver is in a major bear or bull market.

Gold: New Month, New Direction? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Though gold moved to record highs again this week, that doesn't rule out the possibility of a corrective phase having begun earlier this month. A simple three-wave correction could climb as high as $940-950 before being invalidated. Any failure of a pre- or post-Fed rally in this area would suggest a five-wave decline to about $800-830. The Fed… has lost the appetite for disappointing the markets. Though the rate-cut should suggest further upside in metals, this is the context in which readers should… act. Though silver could reach $17.40-17.50 before invalidating a return below $10, support between $12-$15 , especially in the strong band in the $13.75-14.25 area, tends to support further upside.” ~ Precious Points: Can't Keep a Good Metal Down, January 26, 2008

"Wisdom of Crowds" Helps Explain Gold's Price Climb / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll around the world, investors believe in gold.

If you ask them why, you will get a number of explanations and a level of conviction that has endured despite opinions of many “experts” that gold was overpriced at $500, then at $600, and so on until it reached and passed $900.

Gold Investments Weekly Update - Strong Support Suggests Shallow Correction / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was due a much needed breather and a correction after the 10% increase in value in January. Considering the speed of gold's move up in recent weeks it is surprising that gold has only sold off by a small margin today ( by less than 2%). Compared to the sell off in equities in recent weeks gold's sell off has been orderly and less sharp.

Gold Takes a Hit - Early Phase of a Significant Downtrend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold market is taking a big hit today, despite the weaker economic data that initially triggered a decline in the dollar closer to 1.5000 versus the Euro... Very interesting action, indeed, and not particularly gold-friendly, I might add. Let's take a look at the GDX (Market Vectors Gold Mining ETF)...

Invest in Commodities, Don't Lose Your Capital in the Stocks Secular Bear Market / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial markets are always exhilarating. And as a student of the markets, I've learned over the years that their dynamics leave no room for boredom. Whether bull, bear, or monotonous grind in either direction, there is always something new and exciting going on.

Astute investors and speculators are able to make money no matter what direction the markets are moving. But for the average investor, it is usually live by the bull and die by the bear. And for those investors positioned to grow their capital in headline stock indices, in flat or down-trending markets there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Gold $1000 by June 2008 As Fiat Currencies Race to the Bottom / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQuick Note: My math was done last week on a dirty napkin. The ‘AAA' index on credit default swaps for mortgage bonds perhaps is not indicative of prime mortgages, my error in pasted title for the graphic. Mea culpa! The index contains a mix of subprime slime slices in tranches, for some odd reason. Also, those high quality indexes are actually time stamped, with the most recent being the hardest hit. They contain the immediate decline in recent housing prices, the most recent defaults, without benefit of some home collateral appreciation. My attitude is firm though, that the swap contracts of age one year will lose a similar amount, like 30%. Give them time. Ditto for the swap indexes of age two years. The recent mortgage indexes are excellent forward indicators for the older ones.

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.
