New Currency Wars Cometh - Gold To Be “Last Man Standing” / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: GoldCore

Currency wars are set to warm up again, after Japan's radical decision to further debase its currency through an intensification of already significant monetary easing. There was a palpable coldness from China's Premier Xi Jinping as he greeted Japan's President Abe at the APEC summit in Beijing.

Tensions are normally high between the two countries but are even more so in recent months.

Gold Price Rigging Settlement With UBS - Other Banks To Follow / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: GoldCore

Suspicions that the price of precious metals are frequently manipulated by a few international banks were further confirmed over the weekend. UBS agreed to settle with various international regulatory bodies investigating rigging in foreign exchange and precious metals markets.

While failing to admit wrongdoing one person familiar with UBS's internal probe said that the bank found “a small number of potentially problematic incidents at its precious metals desk," reports the Financial Times:

UBS is expected to strike a settlement over alleged trader misbehaviour at its precious metals desks with at least one authority as part of a group deal over forex with multiple regulators this week, two 
people close to the situation said. They cautioned that the timing of a precious metals deal could still slip to a date after the forex agreement.

A Major Low in Gold Price? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

Gold And Silver - Charts Show Power Of Elite's Central Bankers / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

When considering Precious Metals fundamentals do not apply, and that is key to understanding how to relate your holdings of physical and/or interest in gold and silver. Nothing else matters. There are many sites that give minute details of the depletion of gold and silver stocks on the COMEX and LBMA; many that report on the demand for and scarcity of both metals; just last week, the news flash heard around the PM community on how silver American Eagles were sold out...shades of 2013-type news that dominated for several weeks. [Yawn].

Consider this: everything you have heard, including information of which you have not heard but others have is already priced into the market! Compile every sort of bullish news available, and almost all of it is true, yet gold and silver hit recent 4 year lows. How are all those news events working out, and not just for fundamentalists? So far, none of this information has mattered, at least with respect to current price levels. Ultimately, all of these known factors will have an impact on price. For now, all anyone can conclude is that legitimate demand is not a market-driver.

Did Gold and Silver Just Get Their Greenspan Put? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: John_Rubino

The world's central banks and derivatives traders have been having their usual fun with gold and silver lately, dumping huge volumes of futures contracts into thin markets to produce massive declines -- just when precious metals SHOULD have been soaring in response to near-global debt monetization.

But something interesting happened as this latest smack-down really got going. Physical buyers -- who goldbugs have for years been expecting to ride to the rescue, finally did. Chinese and Indian gold imports, which had trailed off earlier in the year, soared in response to the recent price declines. There's some debate about exactly how much these guys are buying, but it certainly looks like they're talking all that's being produced by the world's mines, and then some.

What Crude Oil's Ratios Are Saying About Future Price Moves? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Without a doubt, Oct was the worst month for oil bulls since May 2012. In the previous month, the commodity lost over 11% as the combination of a stronger greenback, rising supplies and weaker demand weighted on the price. Additionally, the first days of the new month have been very negative for oil investors. After the breakdown below the psychologically important barrier of $80, oil bears pushed the price lower and light crude hit a four-year low of $75.84, breaking under long-term support lines. In this way, the commodity posted its sixth weekly loss in a row. Will light crude drop any further in the nearest future? Is it possible that crude oil's ratios will give us some interesting clues?

Silver Price and Powerful Forces / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

Example 1:  When a golfer hits a shot to the green he often yells “sit” as he orders the ball to slow or stop near the flag.  Even professionals indulge in this bit of satisfying self-delusion.  However, the ball responds to powerful forces, such as wind, the undulations of the green, its own momentum, and gravity.

Example 2:  A mother demands that her teenage son clean his room.  Instead he responds to powerful forces, such as testosterone surges, cute girls, and teenage rebellion.

Gold Bug Psychology Must be Neutered / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Gary_Tanashian

The precious metals bear market, beginning with silver’s blow out in early 2011 and the general top in the commodity and ‘inflation trade’ along with gold’s lesser blow out later that summer amidst Euro crisis hysterics, has been all about psychology.  Well, every bear or bull market is about psychology, but the intensity of this dynamic has been something to behold in the gold sector over these last few years.

The Silver Mining Cartel  / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The silence of the precious metals producers in the face of blatant, ongoing, illegal, and seemingly never ending price suppression has been deafening.  How could the primary gold and silver producers sit by and watch as the price of their product is fixed by an illegal pricing mechanism? 

But just when it seemed it couldn't be any darker, we got a glimpse of the dawn. 

Last month Keith Neumeyer, the celebrated CEO of First Majestic, changed the game. He made a shocking and graceful statement that should cause shock waves to reverberate across the sector.

Gold and Silver Bear Markets Close to the Bottom but Not There Yet / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

The selloff in precious metals intensified over the past week. GDXJ declined 25% in seven days while Gold plunged below $1180 to $1140 and Silver plunged below $16 and to as low as $15.20. Precious metals are becoming extremely oversold and the bear market is clearly in the 9th inning. Be on alert for a snapback rally to repair the extreme oversold conditions. Although we are likely very close to the bottom in the miners, Gold’s current position continues to leave me skeptical.

Silver Price Extremes! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Investmentscore.com

To identify “buying opportunities” in “extreme” situations, we identify historical extreme situations and use them for a benchmark. Provided that a correction occurs in an active bull market, the insights from this kind of analysis can be very helpful.

Most should agree that the credit crisis was a major economic event that pushed nearly all assets down to an extreme low. We have used this kind of extraordinary market action as a comparison for the current commodities correction.

$80 Crude Oil Price is the New Normal Minimum / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: The_Energy_Report

Saudi Arabia has nothing to do with falling prices at the pump, argues Bob Moriarty. He sees falling demand as the culprit, driven by economic slowdown in China, Europe and the U.S. In this interview with The Energy Report, Moriarty explains why increased consumer spending won't solve our problems, and discusses why he's still a fan of North American energy stocks—even though he hates shale oil.

Could Gold Stocks Bottom at 2008 Credit Crisis Low Prices? / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Jeb_Handwerger

The commodity equities are selling off as The Fed halts QE3. However, we are reaching oversold levels and support areas where short covering could soon begin. Commodities, metals and the junior miners are hitting multi year lows and falling below 2008 credit crisis levels. This crash is not based on fundamentals only on an artificially inflated dollar due to Yen and Euro weakness.

This is not a time to panic but continue to accumulate as the bear market may be reaching the final capitulation stage. This decline may be a sign that the quantitative easing may have lifted stock market indices, but it did little to improve demand and growth in the economy reflected by demand for energy and metals.

The Driving Force Behind the US Oil Boom / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: OilPrice_Com

The shale revolution’s sweet spot is oilfield services, the lower-risk backbone of the American oil and gas boom that pays off regardless of a play’s economics.

Behind the stardom of the explorers and producers who have put themselves on the revolutionary shale map and absorb most of the risk—are the service providers who make up a highly lucrative market segment.

U.S. Mint Sells Out of Silver Eagle Coins as Buying Surges / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: GoldCore

The gulf between the physical precious metals markets and the paper or electronic gold and silver markets is growing again and risks becoming as broad as it has ever been. Demand for gold and particularly silver bullion has been very high across the world in recent weeks. 

The sharp price falls in recent days has led to even greater demand and concerns about supply and rising bullion premiums. Now the U.S. Mint is sold out and the Canadian Mint is rationing supplies.
