Gold's Price Plunge Not Met by Stronger Physical Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

SPOT MARKET gold fell to its lowest level since August 2010 Wednesday, trading as low as $1224 an ounce, as stocks rallied along with the Dollar following better-than-expected US economic data a day earlier.

By Wednesday lunchtime in London, gold in Dollars was trading around 4% down on where it started yesterday's London session.

Gold and Silver Life Cycle Nears End – The Final Stage of Denial / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The life cycle of most things not matter what it is (living, product, service, ideas etc…) go through four stages and the stock market is no different. Those who recently gave in and bought gold, silver, mining stocks, coins will be enter this stage of the market in complete denial. They still think this is a pullback and a recover should be just around the corner.

Well the good news is a recovery bounce should be nearing, but if technical analysis, market sentiment and the stages theory are correct then a bounce is all it will be followed by years of lower prices and dormancy.

The Fed’s Forked Tongue, Means Gold's Price Rise Will be Explosive / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

When Helicopter Ben Bernanke

Said the helicopter would descend

The markets reacted and quickly fell

Fearing the party would end

 

But they forgot that Ben’s a banker

A breed whose trust is low

And they didn’t stop to consider

It might only be part of the show

Gold Expected Rally Could Taper off by Mid July / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ed_Carlson

The $88/oz. drop in gold last Thursday surely got the attention of a few - instilling fear in those who are still long the metal and greed in those who are not. While I doubt a final low will be seen in gold until the end of the year (the subject of another commentary) the time for a short bounce appears to be upon us.

Still Waiting For The Gold Rally, The Good News Bears / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: HRA_Advisory

Gold continues to struggle and so do explorers.  I am seeing encouragement in the trading of some discovery stories but this is a very small subset of the junior sector.  

I think the precious metals markets are well set up for a rally but gold rallies don’t usually happen in the summer.   It’s still possible but I don’t think a rally strong enough to drag the juniors along for the ride can be assumed in the short term.

By: The_Energy_Report

Remember when oil shot up to $148 a barrel? Chen Lin does, and he sees potential for Wall Street market manipulation to push the oil price in the opposite direction—as low as $47 a barrel. Plus, he's bearish on China now. The good news is that Lin, publisher of What Is Chen Buying/Selling?, was willing to share his personal investment strategy in his interview with The Energy Report. Find out where Lin booked profits this year and get the names he's turning to for protection against oil price downside.

Now is the Time to Buy the "New Gold" / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: On May 15, Christie's auction house sold a huge diamond to the Harry Winston firm for $27 million, setting a new record price for a colorless diamond in the process.

And while diamonds have been a girl's best friend long before Marilyn Monroe crooned those words, it's always been tough for investors to get into the game. Diamonds are considered one of those esoteric fields; an area of investing too small, complex, and exclusive to bother with for most.

Prediction for a Brand New World for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

The quant who produces Trader Tracks newsletter tells The Gold Report that the technical charts project a brightening future for precious metals. Technical market analyst Roger Wiegand tracks annual trading cycles while keeping an expert eye on potentially disruptive world events. He is a stickler for fundamentals, though, when it comes to picking out the best juniors for safe bets in a cash-poor industry.

 

The Gold Report: In early 2012, Roger, you predictedthat the price of gold would rise to over $2,000/ounce ($2,000/oz) during the year. But as the overall stock market increased in value, the yellow metal went in the opposite direction. What happened?

Ben Bernanke's Real Message for Gold Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

Don't fall for propaganda from the Federal Reserve about tapering quantitative easing, says ShadowStats editor John Williams in this interview with The Gold Report. His corrected economic indicators show the U.S. is nowhere near a recovery and the Fed will have to increase rather than decrease bond buying to prop up the banks and push off inevitable dollar debasement. That could be very bad for savers, but good for gold.

 

The Gold Report: On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve hinted that it might begin tapering quantitative easing by the end of the year based on signs of an improving economy. Gold immediately dropped from $1,347 an ounce ($1,347/oz) to $1,277/oz, a 7% decline and the lowest price in more than two years. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and NASDAQ were also off more than 2%. You called this "jawboning" and said that due to stresses in the banking system the Fed would be obliged to continue bond buying. Why would the central bank threaten to cut off the flow if it didn't plan to do it?

Is Gold Price Trying to Tell Us Another 2008 Crisis is Lurking in the Shadows? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_J_Kosares

This monthly gold chart is drawn on the logarithmic scale in order to remove some of the melodrama to the latest correction. Linear charts emphasize nominal price movement while a log chart emphasizes the percentage movement. By reviewing gold’s latest correction on a percentage basis, we can put things into a little bit better perspective. The 2008 correction was 26%; the current correct thus far has been 30%. In short, we’ve been here before though you wouldn’t know it from all the catterwauling at our favorite financial cable network and other media outlets (not to mention Wall Street itself). Granted we might not, as yet, have reached bottom, but then again, we could be close.

Gold Investors Keep Calm and Carry On / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Frank_Holmes

Legendary businessman Steve Forbes once said, "Everyone is a disciplined, long-term investor until the market goes down." It's challenging to have the fortitude to hold on to investments during a one-day carnage event like last Thursday. Everywhere you looked there was red on the screen, as U.S. stocks lost 2.5 percent, commodity equities lost 3 percent and gold declined 5 percent. Gold stocks took one of the biggest blows, falling about 7.5 percent.

So what should an investor do after a day like Thursday? Stay calm and invest on, as I believe there is opportunity in picking up what the bears left behind. Here are a few ideas to ponder.

The late 1990s for the resource sector was so challenging that it is now often referred to as the "nuclear winter" of the industry. Some analysts are comparing our current circumstances to that period, while others purport we haven't hit bottom yet.

BACK in the good old days, a physical silver trader's dream would be to land a photographic company as a customer.
 
Polaroid, Kodak, Fuji and many more were on this list of prospects. This industry was a tremendous behemoth in the silver market.

Extreme Energy, Extreme Implications / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: OilPrice_Com

If oil and gas is a profoundly dynamic phenomenon, then so too must be environmental risk and conflicts over natural resources--and we are not getting the full picture from the mainstream media, according to Michael T. Klare, professor of peace and world security studies at Hampshire College, TomDispatch blogger, and author of Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet: The New Geopolitics of Energy (Metropolitan Books, 2008). As risk multiply, conventional sources evaporate and we are left with "extreme" energy, renewables may be the only way to avoid war and disaster.

Australian Gold Stocks Sector Update / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Neil_Charnock

The Australian gold sector (XGD) is selling today (intra-day) at a record 53.56% below its 200dma.  This is a rare event indeed as even the 2008 violent panic crash produced a low around 48% below the 200dma at that time.  This current crash on the Australian XGD is a fall of 66% since October 2012 and a fall of 75% from the all-time high of 8498.9 in April 2011. 

To understand this index you have to look at its makeup.  The index is weighted and therefore dominated by our largest gold stock Newcrest which has fared very badly this month.  Therefore the Newcrest weighting in the index has lessened over the recent month.  This stock has fallen 56.1% since the 27th March this year and 36.63% since the 4th of June alone.  With Newcrest down so far you have to ask where the rest of the sector is relative to old lows right now.
