199 Days of Hell - Unintended consequences: Oil and the Worst Battle in History / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Marin_Katusa

Just after I signed the publishing agreement for my first book, The Colder War, I realized how much research I was going to end up doing, specifically in areas that I never thought would be so integral to my subject area: energy and mining. Along the way, I came across some fascinating events that were completely out of my area of expertise but gave me a better sense for the unintended consequences in an historical perspective of the events that led to where we are today.

Kaminak Yukon Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

It was in 1896 when prospectors stumbled across large quantities of gold in one of the tributaries of the Yukon’s Klondike River.  Word of this discovery spread like wildfire.  And in no time at all prospectors from far and wide set course to get a piece of the action.  The aptly named Klondike Gold Rush ended up being one of legend!

Provocatively this legend was not entirely one of smashing success and untold riches though.  Yes, there were some who cashed in, but it was ultimately one of endless frustration and failure.  Gold fever ended up blinding folks to the reality of the Yukon’s harsh climate and challenging geography.  And most of those who journeyed there were ill-equipped to deal with it.

Greeks Turn to Gold on Bank Bail-in and Drachma Risk / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: GoldCore

The Greek stock market is down 36% year to date; the risk of global contagion in the event of a Greek exit is very real. Ordinarily such a crisis would require a massive coordinated effort from global stakeholders, perhaps directed by the IMF or some other pan-national financial body. But not in this case; the rhetoric is nationally-based and biased without unity of purpose across finance ministries. Recent official soundings from the UK and German governments saying that exposure to Greece is limited only underscores the depth of denial, ignorance and lack of consensus that exists within the euro area. A Greek exit from the euro would profoundly weaken the euro experiment and create a dangerous precedent for all future crises in the region.

Gold Price Short-Term Bottom Due, Higher into February / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jim_Curry

With the sharp selling in recent days, there is now the potential that another larger-degree peak has been seen in the Gold market. Having said that, this is not set in stone at the present time, and the various time cycles that I track suggest that we should be at or nearing at least a short-term bottom, with the potential for one final slingshot higher into early-to-mid February.

Impending US Dollar Peak Should be Catalyst for Gold Price / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Gold has performed very well under the circumstances of declining inflation and a surging US$ index. Since 2014 the US$ index is up nearly 18% while Gold is up 3%. Since Gold's November low the US$ index is up over 10%. Had we known that at the time, we'd have thought Gold would be headed for $1000 and not the $1300 it recently hit. At present, the US$ index appears ripe for a correction or major pause in its uptrend. Given that Gold is priced in US$ and that Gold has shown strength in real terms, sustained US$ weakness could be a major boon for Gold and precious metals as a whole.

Silver and Other Precious Metals To Manipulate / Commodities / Commodities Trading

I mentioned today that the Australian Dollar was taken out to the woodshed and given a sound thrashing. Silver must have been dragged out there as well because it was beaten with the proverbial ugly stick.

Since my early 20’s, once I had a job and some sort of cash flow that was the real beginning.  I did buy a few silver coins as a kid but nothing of significance.

Seen the Energy Downturn Movie Before, and Not Worried / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: The_Energy_Report

With oil and gas prices down, it's time to cull the herd, sell marginal producers and double down on the strong ones in your portfolio, says Michael Waring, founder of Galileo Global Equity Advisors Inc. In this interview with The Energy Report, Waring explains that this kind of correction happens every 10 years in this space. It presents opportunities for companies to improve and investors to profit—and he names four companies he considers most likely to succeed.

The Energy Report: Michael, you said in November that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) expected the U.S. to share in reducing production growth to help stabilize the oil market. Have events justified that expectation?

Increasing Demand For Refined Products Will Increase Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Dan Steffens writes: In last week's article I posted a chart from the International Energy Agency'srecent Oil Market Report that shows global demand for refined products catching up to supply by the 3rd quarter of this year. My opinion is that all of the analysts who are now blaming the sharp drop in oil prices on a "glut" of supply could change their tune quickly as consumers adjust to lower fuel costs. Just as higher costs reduce demand for any commodity, lower costs will increase demand. This is especially true for a commodity that has a direct impact on standard of living, like oil does.

Saudi Arabia Changes Kings, But Not its Oil Policy / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Last Friday, I appeared on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” to discuss the new Saudi King Salman and his impact on oil prices.

The interview was set up on a flight back to Pittsburgh, and took place via satellite feed almost as soon as I landed.

Now, these hastily put together appearances can be somewhat trying if the anchors are not up to speed on the material.

Crude Oil Price Bulls vs. Resistance Zone / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): No positions are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

On Tuesday, crude oil gained 1.55% after mixed U.S. data weakened the greenback. As a result, light crude climbed above $46, but the nearest resistance still keeps gains in check. Will we see higher values of the commodity in the coming days?

There’s More to the Gold Price Rally Than European Market Fears / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Frank_Holmes

Gold was down 1.72 percent at the end of 2014, but things are looking up for the yellow metal. Last week I returned from presenting at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, where sentiment for gold was through the roof.

And with good reason. Even though gold was down last year, it still ranked as the second-best-performing currency following the U.S. dollar. The metal has risen about 10 percent year-to-date, and last Tuesday, for the first time since mid-August, it broke through the $1,300 mark.

Gold and Silver Stocks Investing Basics / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: The_Gold_Report

Investing in mining equities can get rather complicated but Heiko Ihle, managing director at H.C. Wainwright & Co., says precious metals equity investors need to focus on just three criteria: jurisdiction, management and asset viability. In this interview with The Gold Report, he explains his rationale and discusses several of his preferred gold and silver names.

The Gold Report: Do you have a price forecast for gold and silver for 2015?

Heiko Ihle: Our long-term prices for gold and silver are $1,200/oz and $17.50/oz, respectively. We recently lowered those prices from $1,300/oz and $20/oz given current market prices.

Is the Gold Price Rally Over? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) are currently justified from the risk/reward perspective.

Gold’s rally took place along with the U.S. dollar’s rally and this was encouraging for gold bulls, but gold’s reaction after the 1,140 billion euro QE program was announced was very disappointing. Is the rally over and will the gold market plunge once again?

In short, it’s possible, but not imminent. Let’s move right to the charts (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

Risk of New Debt Crisis After Syriza Victory In Greece / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: GoldCore

The crushing victory of the Greek opposition party Syriza in yesterday’s Greek elections has added to jitters in already jittery financial and foreign exchange markets.

The euro tumbled and gold in euros surged to its highest level since April 2013, at €1,167.94/oz as markets opened in Asia. The euro has since stablised but remains near a 11 year low against the dollar and is now down 16.7 per cent against gold in January alone.

Comprehensive Silver Price Chart Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

Five days ago silver broke out of an inverse H&S bottom that has temporarily reversed the downtrend. I measured the more conservative price objective using the higher low instead of the Swiss spike low which comes in around the 19.80 area on the log chart. It will be interesting to see if the Swiss spike low will be the ultimate low for the bear market or just a short to intermediate low. Sometimes big trends can end with one last shake out of the weak hands similar to the Swiss spike low.

Decoding the Gold COTs: Myth vs Reality / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

Over the many years that I have been writing about the commodity futures markets, I have tried to make a point of homing in on the fact that it is the presence of high-powered speculative money flows that drive market action.

Whenever commentators speak of fundamental factors that should go into determining the price of any commodity, they tend to generally speak in terms of demand for the physical product versus the amount of supply for that same product. More often than not, omitted from the discussion is the role that speculators play.
