Where Next for Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Look at that gold price? What happened to 650 an ounce? I believe we are witnessing a new floor price for gold being established.

Gold daulygold daily

And what happens when that ole' spring is pushed too hard?

Well, gold has finally closed above 700 and I believe this to be more than a short term rally. Now 700 has become the floor for gold where as before 700 was the ceiling. What does this mean? Before, gold was attempting to climb above an imaginary Maginot line of 700. Now 700 has become the floor and imaginary base from which gold will call home.

The Wallstreet Big Boys Are Not Interested in Junior Miners / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Captain_Hook

And Now For Something Completely Different: What good would it do you if Michael Bloomberg became the next President of the United States ? Answer: In spite of all the platform promises he would undoubtedly make, no good in all likelihood, just like with Bush if you were not a defense contractor or oil baron. That is to say, like Bush, he would work on ways to reward his buddies for supporting his campaign. Good or bad depending on who you are – that's how the game is played.  As mentioned here many times now, and highlighted in our piece The Bourgeoisie Of America , what should begin to become more plain to everybody very soon is that guys like Bloomberg, in the top three-percent for sure, are only worried about lining their own pockets – and it's to hell with everyone else. And on a larger scale, and increasingly, official policy is being run on this basis, where again, such actions are not about to help you and me in anyway past putting off the inevitable – that being through a painful process bring us back to a system for the people as opposed to the one we have – designed to rape, pillage, and plunder.

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES traded sideways in Asia overnight, moving in a $2 range before rising steadily in London to break $705 per ounce as the New York open drew near.

European stock markets rallied meantime, with London 's top 100 share index adding 1.5% during the morning session to reach break-even from this time last month. Both the FTSE Eurofirst 300 index and the Dow on Wall Street remain 7% off their top of mid-July.

Significant Near-Term Bottom for Natural Gas / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This afternoon's spike to the upside in the U.S. Natural Gas Fund (AMEX: UNG) has imbued the near-term chart structure with the look of a potentially significant near-term bottom (37.00-34.00). A sustained upside hurdle of last Thurday's rally peak at 37.40 should triggered upside follow-through to the 40.00-40.40 area initially, and possibly to 42.00 thereafter as the price structure fulfills its "destiny" off of the three-week base pattern.

Gold Breaches $700 Barrier as Fed Fails to Contain Subprime Credit Crisis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Gold
Spot gold traded at a new 16 month high this morning and was trading at $704.00/704.50 an ounce as of 1215 GMT.

Gold has continued to show strength in Asian and European trading after last week's surge of $26 or more than 4%. Last weeks surge was likely due to strong physical demand, near record oil prices, the weaker dollar and then the worryingly bad payroll numbers on Friday. These led to gold rising and the Dow declining 1.9% and the S&P 500 falling 1.4% for the week. Read full article... Read full article...

A Perfect Financial Storm for Gold - Technically Precious with Merv / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal markets weakening, U.S. dollar weakening, gold zooming higher – is this what is sometimes called a “perfect storm” for gold?

Global Markets and the Price of Gold
Last week I deviated from my normal commentary and looked in on the global equity markets. The question not asked at that time was “If the global markets are all weakening how does that affect the price of gold?” It is often inferred that gold price moves counter to the direction of the equity markets.

Will Gold Rise Still, When The Next Financial Shock Hits? Does Liquidity Mean Confidence? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Smoke and mirrors, the confidence game is such a difficult one, once the crowd is suspicious. Our generation trusts few figures in authority. It is a generation used to being taken for a ride, with the sin now in being gullible. And the beginning of the run up in gold and silver testifies to market fears.

Real Interest Rates and Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in the young days of this gold bull, early 2001, gold languished in the $260s following a multi-decade bear. With little encouraging price behavior at that time, early contrarians focused on supply-and-demand fundamentals to undergird their highly controversial bullish views on gold. One key bullish thesis from those dark early days regarded gold's behavior relative to real interest rates.

Real interest rates are the actual returns realized by debt investors after inflation is subtracted out. So if an investor buys a US Treasury Bill that pays 4% a year, and inflation is running 3% a year, then he is earning a real rate of return of 1% on his investment. His purchasing power, the goods and services his capital can actually buy in the real world, grows by just 1% annually.

Silver Standard Resources Up 11.47% / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

We are pleased to report that Silver Standard Resources Incorporated gained a massive $3.49 yesterday as it continued on the recovery trail.

Silver Standard (SSRI) has a market capitalisation of $2.11 billion and is one of the largest stocks in the silver-prices portfolio. There is a school of thought that says the big profits will be confined to the junior silver stocks sector, which we don't disagree with, however we do believe that quality silver stocks will perform and bring us good returns. Do bear in mind that picking the right junior stock is also difficult as some of them may not find any silver and will not be around when this market explodes across the finishing line. And a gain of 11.47% in one day is not too shabby, probably one of the best silver stock gainers yesterday.

Gold Bull Market Resmues As Inflation Equals Higher Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver

“To The Moon, Margaret!”

GoldDon't you just feel real sorry for gold? Look at that poor chart below and weep. Actually weep for those idiots who cannot recognize a gold bull market when they see one. Hah! Gold will yet go where gold wants to go and perhaps where it has never been before – higher Margarita.

As the world leans further and further to financial doomsday is anyone even awake to the fact? Not really, except for those who are having their homes foreclosed.

Commodity Markets Analysis - Gold To Break $700 As Sept 11th Anniversary Nears / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Gold_Investments

Spot gold was trading at $697.50/698.00 an ounce as of 1215 GMT.

Gold has continued to show strength in Asian and European trading and remains near 16 month highs. Besides a weak dollar and near record oil prices, gold was also bolstered by a resumption of geopolitical tension in the Middle East, with Syria accusing Israel of bombing its territory. With the 6 year anniversary of September 11 atrocity next Tuesday and Osama Bin Laden again in the news, risk aversion and safe haven buying is contributing to gold's strength. This is seen in strong inflows into gold ETFs and we have experienced a strong pick up in sales of both physical bullion and Perth Mint gold certificates.

Gold Bull Market Breakout As Credit Crunch Creates Flight to Quality / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Thursday, December Gold leaped $14 to $704, while the continuous spot contract gained about 2% to 694. More impressive to me was how the mining stocks acted. Recently I had mentioned that I thought the gold stocks would begin to take their cue from gold rather than stock market, when gold exceeded $700. Today's action certainly validated that. The XAU was up 5.7% and the HUI rose 6.6%. One day does not make a trend, but if you are a gold bull, you have to like the present situation.

I have so many informative charts to show, but I had to break it down to the most pertinent. There still are quite a few in this update.
