Gold and the Fed – What If... / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Matt_Machaj

In my previous article (What if the Fed Really Tapers QE?) I focused on what would be the likely outcome of limiting the QE program on several key markets (gold, real estate, stocks and bonds). Today, we will provide you with an analogous analysis for a completely different scenario.

In the following part of the article we will discuss what’s likely to happen if the Fed simply continues the QE program and informs about it in a direct way.

Silver and Gold Price Manipulation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Price manipulation is a time-honored tradition in structured finance. There will be abuse anytime there is a price “fixing” or a price set on the basis of a trade.

Instances of abuse are the dragons that “regulators” are supposed to constantly slay. When regulators are too slow, unwilling, or unable to do the job—and if you haven’t been paying attention, regulators have been all three for decades—market professionals take matters into their own hands.

Gold Retraces 50% of Both Summer 2013 and 2008-2011 Gains / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The WHOLESALE price of gold halved an early 1.5% rally lunchtime Tuesday in London, dropping back to $1315 per ounce as world stock markets fell ahead of tomorrow's long-awaited US Federal Reserve decision.

Silver reversed all of an earlier 1.8% climb, falling back below $22 per ounce.

UK and Eurozone government bonds slipped in price, but US Treasuries rose – pushing interest rates down for a fifth session – after new data said US consumer prices rose less quickly than analysts forecast in August.

Gold Stocks Trend Forecast Into 2014 - Historic Buying Opportunity Coming / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Recently we’ve been writing that another opportunity is coming to buy gold stocks. While this is still the case, the facts have changed and we have to tweak our view. The evidence argues that the mining stocks are now likely to retest their lows. Rather than that buying opportunity being days away, we now feel it is weeks away. Investors and speculators need to have more patience. In this missive we discuss why a retest is coming but why it could mark a final bottom and a tremendous buying opportunity.

Will Short-Term Link Between Crude Oil and Gold Wane? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Nadia_Simmons

Looking at the charts of crude oil, we clearly see that the major factor, which has driven the price of light crude in the recent weeks was the uncertainty around Syria. At the beginning of the previous week, crude oil began to drop after Russia offered to help put Syria's chemical weapons under international control. Although the U.S. President Barack Obama said that he will still continue efforts to convince politicians to back military action, Russia's proposal raised the chance that a U.S. military strike would be delayed or averted. In the following days, we saw two-day small bounce up in crude oil prices as investors worried about whether diplomatic efforts to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons would avert military action that could disrupt oil supplies from the Middle East. These diplomatic efforts intensified as Russia warned that a U.S. strike could unleash extremist attacks and carry the country's bitter civil war beyond Syria's borders. However, this improvement was only temporary and crude oil slipped on Friday as the United States and Russia worked on a plan for Syria to surrender its chemical weapons.

Gold And Silver – Fundamental Tale Or Technical Reality? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

A few have inquired about our greater focus on the charts as they pertain to the Precious Metals, of late, a shift of which we have been cognizant. The reason is, it suits our purpose. Our purpose is to pursue profitable trading, and telling “stories” is not always apt, especially when almost all of them have been amply related in the news and written endlessly by cheerleading precious metals [PM] writers and newsletters.

Why is an analysis more focused on charts seem like such an obvious question? Last week, we provided a list of nine of the most recognized reasons for viewing gold and silver from a demand side perspective. There are many others you can think of, additionally. [See: It Is Always About One Thing: Timing, click on http://bit.ly/17Hctst} Repeating the same things is unnecessary, and those which have been aired so frequently seem not to have had much influence on sustaining higher prices.

Gold Damaged, Bulls Back on the Defensive / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Toby_Connor

As I mentioned in my last post there is a disturbing possibility that gold's intermediate cycle has topped, and done so in a left translated manner. For clarification, left translated cycles often lead to lower lows. In this case if gold did top on week 9 and the intermediate cycle is now in decline, then the odds are high we are going to see the June low of $1179 tested and broken before the next intermediate bottom.

COMEX Deliverable Gold Bullion Plunges By 78% in 2013 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

The last time that the claims per ounce were nearly this high was in the late 1990's. At that time the central banks had to intervene to keep one or more bullion banks from faltering. It occurred during a period of coordinated bullion selling from the central banks into the market under the Washington Agreement, culminating in the notorious gold dumping known as Brown's Bottom. At least the Germans still have a receipt. That selling failed to hold the line, and shortly thereafter gold began its great bull market run.

Gold and Oil, Where to Go if the Middle East Explodes! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

The Oil Price...if the Middle East Explodes

We preface by saying that this is still a "what if" scenario...

In the unlikely event that a limited strike on the Syrian government's ability to launch nerve gas on its population through air strikes, rocket attacks or artillery shells has no other effect on the religious war, then we doubt that the impact of such a strike will send shock waves throughout the Middle East.

Barrick Gold Miner Gets 10 out of 10 / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Richard_Mills

Barrick Gold Corp. wasn’t always a gold miner, it started as a privately held oil and gas company - Barrick Resources. After suffering huge financial losses Peter Munk, the principal shareholder, decided to focus on gold.

The company’s first acquisition, in 1984, was the Renabie mine near Wawa, Ontario and it produced roughly 16,000 ounces of gold that year for Barrick. Then Barrick acquired Camflo Mining in 1984, Camflo had operations in the province of Quebec and in Nevada, U.S.A.

Barrick’s next acquisition was the Mercur mine in Mercur, Utah in June 1985, followed by the Goldstrike mine, in Nevada, in 1986.

Gold In India: Did Gold Stop to Respond to the Rupee Price Moves? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Nadia_Simmons

Today, gold in the global market reversed early gains and fell to its lowest in more than a month as U.S. futures extended losses on fears the United States would curb its stimulus soon and as a U.S. strike on Syria looked less likely.

According to Reuters, purchases from jewelers in Hong Kong and mainland China initially helped gold gain more than 0.5%, but heavy selling of New York COMEX and bullion futures on Tokyo Commodity Exchange pushed the price of gold below $1,330 per ounce.

Silver Demand: When Investment Trumps Industrial / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

A slackening U.S. economy typically means that a slowdown in industrial demand for silver will soon be forthcoming. Nevertheless, the re-monetization of silver would more than take care of any such slump in demand.

Even if new supplies of silver are tapped, there is still a considerable premium associated with finding, buying back, smelting and refining the precious metal. Essentially, the physical market for silver would go completely off exchange.

Gold and Silver Price Manipulation Ends With the Death of Fiat Currency / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The silver and gold market has been rife with speculation about ongoing price manipulation. Most investors are now familiar with this concept, and even the mainstream has admitted that undue market influence has occurred.

Nevertheless, ending this unfortunate fact of life for precious metal investors and allowing prices to rise to their fair value would probably create a U.S. Dollar panic.

Crude Oil Prices, Syria, and the Probability of a Price Shock / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: J_W_Jones

Oil prices have been in the spotlight as the Syrian chemical weapons crisis became front and center in the media. As the political process has unfolded, price volatility in oil futures in both directions has been extreme. Oil prices have traded in a wide range the past two weeks between $104 – $112 dollars per barrel.

As a professional option trader, I wanted to look at what the implied volatility within options on oil futures was saying about future oil prices. The oil futures option chain would give me some possible clues about near and intermediate term price direction.

Planned Attack on Gold Begins, Waiting for Manipulation to End / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Toby_Connor

As I was afraid would happen, gold suffered an overnight hit that drove it back below the $1350 support zone. The drop occurred in the span of one minute so it's pretty obvious this was a planned attack with the intent of taking out that support zone in the thin overnight market when there would not be any buyers to defend the against the attack.

Why I Won’t Be Buying Gold Anytime Soon / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: When gold surged to over $1,400 an ounce, I was still not a believer in its potential as a buying opportunity—rather, I thought it was more a trade against the possibility of an expanded conflict arising in Syria.

The gold bugs were suggesting the time for the yellow metal was here again, and I even heard a target price of $1,700 an ounce. Now, with the situation in Syria looking to be resolved, the safe haven’s gains over the past few weeks are beginning to fade away as the price falls below $1,400.
