Gold and Bank Account Balances / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Alasdair_Macleod

There has been a growing shift in favour of assets relative to bank deposits. This was initially encouraged by zero interest rates, but more recently there is little doubt that Cyprus's bail-in has accelerated the trend. This explains the bull markets in bonds and equities, which conveniently underwrites the entire banking system. It is however too early to offer evidence of falling deposit balances held by non-banks and the general public because depositors as a whole have been remarkably complacent, but there is ample evidence that liquidity from monetary expansion is inflating financial assets faster than bank deposits.

Silver More Weakness Before Price Takes off Higher Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clive_Maund

Much of what is written about the macro factors affecting gold applies equally to silver, and will not be repeated here.

Silver's post plunge relief rally was considerably weaker and more stunted than gold's, and with it now back near to its April plunge lows after the drop last week, the chances are considered high that it will break to new lows soon. That said, its latest COTs and sentiment indicators are now strongly bullish, so that although it may well break to lower lows soon, it is thought unlikely that there will be much downside follow through before it hits bottom. We can see all this on its 9-month chart below, and how it is clinging on by its fingernails to the support at the April lows. Before leaving this chart, notice the large gap between the price and the 200-day moving average, which just by itself is a positive factor.

Bottoming Gold Should be Bought as Stocks Approach Blow off Top / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clive_Maund

For those of you who are short of time and are accustomed to scrolling down to the bottom of an article to read its conclusions I'm going to save you the trouble by putting the conclusions at the start: the broad US stockmarkets are approaching a parabolic blowoff top and should be sold, and gold and silver are bottoming and should be bought. If you have fallen to the floor laughing at this suggestion it is a sign that you have been brainwashed by The Ministry of Disinformation and you are warned to pull yourself together and take the time to calmly consider the hard facts presented below - otherwise you won't be laughing at all in a few months when YOU will be lying face down in the dirt with tire tracks across your back.

Commodities Bear Market Elliott Wave Analysis / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: EWI

We have written about the commodity market over the years, and have been generally bearish for quite some time. The typical commodity bull market lasts about 13 years, followed by about a 21 year bear market. This is the 34-year cycle. Commodity bull markets usually begin near the beginning of stock market Secular inflation/deflation cycles. Then end just before these cycles end. During the stock market Secular growth cycles commodities remain in a longer term bear market.

Gold Supply and Demand Fundamentals for Q1 2013 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jason_Hamlin

Global gold demand for the first quarter of 2013 declined both in terms of tonnage (-13%) and dollars (-16%).

The volume decline was driven primarily by 177 tonnes of outflows from ETFs, versus inflows of 53 tonnes last year. If we remove this component from the mix, total global demand actually increased by 8% during the first quarter.

Why You Should Short Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Submissions

Tom Clayton writes: Short Gold is at the top of my list of a possible continuous of the deterioration in the $Price of Gold.  Using the the Charts, It is easier to visualize.  With the stockmarket making new highs weekly, why own gold. With Inflation under control, according to Fed figures, if you can believe after eliminating the Volatile Prices of Food and Energy.. which is the heart of Inflation..Right?  The rate of inflation is reported at 3.1% but if you include Food & Energy.. it would be over 10% and unemployment would be 15% after eliminating those who have given up looking for a job, according to John Williams of Shadow Statistics. Anyway, inflation of 3.1% is “no reason to own Gold”?

Crude Oil Price Rides With The Asset Bubble - But Not Forever / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

BUBBLE TROUBLE
Indicators as wide-ranging as real-versus-official inflation indexes, T-bond fundamentals against daytrade technicals and all major stock markets hitting the roof have a faithful tracker in the paper oil asset boom. For many, the orgy of central bank "easing" is a prime mover of this megatrend, and the attitude of central bankers can be gleaned by the comment, reported by Reuters May 13, from the head of Italy's central bank, Ignazio Visco, who is also a policymaker of the European Central Bank. Visco suggests that the ECB could cut its deposit rate below zero, effectively charging banks for parking any spare cash they do not lend. Although paper gold has now wilted, with plenty of help from market manipulators oil has temporarily, only temporarily gone the other way.

Gold And Silver True Story Is All About Time - Be Prepared / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

We are going to start off with one of the most eye-popping pictures of just one central bank, the privately owned corporate Federal Reserve, and its purported gold holding. Occasionally, we drop a bit of history that most people either ignore or simply do not believe, but this one cannot be conveniently shunted aside.

One of the provisions in the FEDERAL Constitution, the 14th Amendment, [the original, organic Constitution had only 10 provisions, aka The Bill Of Rights], a hornet's nest for an unsuspecting public, we our focus in on the one germane to the graph below. It is found in Section 4:

Commodities Boom to be Driven by the Urbanisation of 1 Billion More People / Commodities / Demographics

By: Richard_Mills

Many, many years ago during a lengthy argument with a friend he told me to 'give it a doubt' - he meant I was wrong.

The herd is convinced the commodities boom is over. Doom and gloom, the sky is falling, the bears argument sounds convincing - growth has stopped, economies are slowing. Looking at the TSX.V's performance (most of the world's mineral exploration firms call the Venture Exchange home) it's as if people are convinced the need to search for, develop and mine new mineral deposits is over.

The Last Investable Moment for Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In the context of the current U.S. Dollar valuation bubble, silver’s eventual price rise seem inevitable. This paper currency bubble commenced with a desperate flight to quality, despite the fact that the U.S. Dollar had been an intrinsically worthless currency since it was taken off the gold standard by Nixon in the early 1970’s.

Silver is one of many sought after investment choices when risk aversion is high. What makes it a convenient choice happens to be that the metallic commodity has special qualities that have historically made it one of the best forms of money.

Silver COT Report - The Day the Numbers Lied / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Prices ended down slightly once again for both silver and gold last week. There was no great change noted in the COT reports for either precious metal, and the monthly Bank Participation Report was a non-event for silver. This is once again leaving many observers scratching their heads about the suddenly questionable reliability of these numbers.

The Key Reason to Buy Gold Stocks Now / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Money_Morning

Tony Daltorio writes: One of the most successful long-term strategies when hunting for the best stocks to buy is contrarian investing.

It's a rather simple strategy: buy something when it is out of favor and everyone else is selling, which leads to bargain prices. Then wait for sentiment to turn, sell and pocket your profit.

Will Soaring Stock Market Indices Hit the Ceiling? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DailyGainsLetter

Moe Zulfiqar writes: The stock market rally that began in March of 2009 is gaining attention once again. The key stock indices have surpassed the highs they registered before the U.S. economy was hit with a financial crisis and the ones made at the peak of the tech boom.

With all this, the direction in which the key stock indices are headed next has become a topic of discussion among investors: can they go any higher? Or we are bound to see another market sell-off, like the one we saw in 2008 and early 2009?

European Natural Gas Industry's Green Rage / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Andrew_McKillop

DYING IN GREEN TAPE
BusinessEurope president Jürgen Thumann speaking to EurActiv at the European Business Summit which opened 15 May, squarely blamed the European Commission for "the negative effects of green tape”, also saying EU regulations create ‘unnecessary burdensome legislative instruments in climate, energy and environment policies’. One of these is the so-called Third energy package, which is supposed to encourage Europe's gas importers, producers, pipeline transporters, distributors and users, because gas is cleaner-burning, lower emission and therefore preferable to coal for power generation. Gas-fired power is also the fastest-response, best backup power choice to run with renewable power.

Controlling the Beginning Stages of Hyperinflation by Manipulating the Gold and Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Steve_St_Angelo

The tactic by the Fed and Central Banks is to inflate the stock markets while manipulating the price of gold and silver lower. This achieves two goals, 1) it reassures the public’s faith by pumping up stock prices while the economic indicators continue to deteriorate and 2) it elevates the dollar while it destroys market sentiment in the precious metals.

So far, the strategy has worked. Some of the toughest gold and silver bugs are becoming extremely frustrated and downright bearish. You can’t blame them as this is typical human psychology. Although, extremes and manipulations never last forever and at some point in time they reverse.

Silver and the Dow / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Hubert_Moolman

The Dow making new highs is likely to be very good news for silver investors, because nominal silver peaks tend to come after significant nominal peaks in the Dow. These stock market rallies are driven by the expansion of the money supply, causing a big increase in value of paper assets (including stocks) relative to real assets.
