How will the 'Fracking' in Oil Production Affect Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

The process of "Fracking" in the production of oil is increasing global oil reserves by around 11%. More importantly, it has been a success in the U.S. but is yet to be used in Europe and Russia to the same extent. Nevertheless, this is expected to happen. The initial impact is that the world's dependence on Middle Eastern oil is falling fast and the stranglehold OPEC has had on oil prices is weakening considerably. But how should this affect the gold price you may well ask?

Have Gold and Silver Stopped Responding to U.S. Dollar Price Action? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Gold cannot be printed or manufactured in contrast to the currency. That’s why over the long term it has kept its value as the ultimate currency. There can be no “gold war.” However, we often hear about a currency war. Sounds familiar, were did we hear this before?

The phrase “currency war” was coined by Brazilian Finance Minister Guido Mantega after the financial crisis of 2008. The idea is that highly indebted nations weaken the value of their currency by cutting interest rates down to zero and printing fiat currency in order to gain trade advantages (cheaper products to export) and to pay less debt service on their bonds. Countries compete against each other to achieve a relatively low exchange rate for their own currency. The policy can trigger retaliatory action by other countries that in turn can lead to a general decline in international trade, harming all countries.

Nevertheless, the Chinese willingness to accept fungible dollars instead of precious metal seems to be waning. They are quietly accumulating metals..

Silver Market Duality / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Duality in trade in the precious metals markets has existed for decades. The decoupling has never been more obvious with the seeming dichotomy of prices versus demand and production.

We can discuss things below the surface, but it's far different than what we see and try to interpret.Below the surface, fundamentals exist that would be barely recognizable.Above the surface, we are left with phantom markets created out of greed and supported by a seemingly everlasting flow of liquidity and hope.

Are the Gold Bugs Wrong? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

What a ride the precious metals have been on recently. Gold and silver prices have fallen off a cliff, while gold stocks were thrown on the rocks and left for dead. GLD has seen record outflows.

Popular financial news shows featured guest after guest who proclaimed gold is now "officially" in a bear market, emboldened by the fact that in spite of its recent bounce, the price has languished below its September 2011 peak for 20 months. As a group, gold stocks are down an abysmal 54% over that same period. The capitulation process has been brutal.

By: J_W_Jones

Risk assets and financial markets around the world have been supported by central bank action for several years. Performing financial alchemy on a scale larger than has been seen in the history of mankind, central banks have hijacked global financial markets. Mountains of liquidity, artificially low interest rates, and the creation of future asset bubbles has been their calling card for the past few years.

Time to Stress Test Your Resolve in the Gold Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

The Casey Research Metals and Mining team has received a number of worried and angry emails about gold's recent rollercoaster ride. I'd like to respond to them.

First, I understand. I'm an investor, too, and I also manage money for family members. We have positions that are underwater, a few dramatically so. Worse, in many cases a full position had been built, seemingly leaving no room to average down and lower our cost basis. This predicament isn't fun, and there are a limited number of options.

Paper and Physical Gold Battling for Supremacy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

The recent drop in gold prices is a confirmation, or a revelation, to investors of the battle between the physical and paper gold markets. In this interview with The Gold Report, Brien Lundin, editor of Gold Newsletter, predicts the timing of a handoff from Asian physical demand to Western speculative demand and assesses the readiness of the junior market to respond to a revival in commodity prices. Plus, in a tip to Father's Day, he discusses his efforts to groom the next generation of investors.

 

The Gold Report: In your latest newsletter, you advocate that gold investors pay close attention to the Federal Reserve meeting taking place on June 18. What are you looking for out of that meeting?

European stock markets ticked higher by lunchtime – with the exception of Germany's DAX – regaining some of yesterday's losses, which were followed by sell offs in the US and Asia.

Drillers Pay Hush Money to Keep Their Fracking Toxic Secrets / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Money_Morning

Tara Clarke writes: Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the art of separating oil from rock, has the potential of turning America into the world's top oil and natural gas producer.

But as with any bonanza it has some secrets oil and gas companies want to keep under wraps. And some companies are willing to put some big bucks behind that.

Hydro-Fracking Boom or Bust? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: BATR

The economics of oil or natural gas hydrofracking are seldom analyzed from the perspective of the American consumer. Most discussions focus upon the investment opportunities of specific companies, royalties to leaseholders, windfall tax revenues that state governments will benefit from and the bonanza that local communities will enjoy from the added business activity. Missing is a clear understanding of the pricing points and factors that will determine the actual selling charge and total all inclusive retrieval costs in the domestic market. Will the price of energy drop precipitously or will the net effect be that the native end user sees no direct benefit from the rush to drill?

Gold - Saving Real Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: James_Turk

Up until the late 1960s, it was considered prudent for everyone to have some savings. By forgoing consumption, savings gave the ability to consume more at a later date through the accumulation of interest income.

This result is similar to what one hopes to achieve with an investment, but savings and investments should not be confused. A person uses money to make an investment, whereas saving is the process of accumulating money itself. Thus, you put your money at risk when making an investment, which hopefully will become a wealth-creating asset. In contrast, savings are meant to be riskless.

By: ForexPros

A sharp reversal from 1423 through the lower side of a corrective channel suggests that a rally from 1337 is complete, and that the market is headed lower. We expect further weakness on gold for this week, ideally close to 1340 week with impulsive personality. The trend is bearish; below 1423 is critical level.

Gold demand is especially strong in India, where gold is the investment of choice among consumers. India's gold imports reached 162 tons in May, almost twice the average level.

Solid U.S. Non Farm Payrolls Will Send Gold and Silver to New Lows / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

With US Non-Farm Payrolls coming in at a solid +175k, gold and silver prices are set to take another leg lower as a complete absence of additional quantitative easing removes the need to buy gold as a hedge against further easing of US monetary policy. We therefore see both gold and silver prices taking another large leg lower in coming months, with both precious metals hitting new multi-year lows before too long.

June Silver's Weakest Seasonal Month Presents Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clive_Maund

While silver is on the defensive short-term there is plenty of evidence that over the medium and longer-term it is setting up for a powerful rally. COT's and sentiment are already very bullish indeed, which means that when the turn does come, the rally is likely to be accentuated by panic short covering.

On its 6-month chart we can see how silver is being pressured lower by its falling 50-day moving average coming into play overhead, although the increasingly large gap between the 50 and 200-day moving averages is indicative of an oversold state that increasingly calls for reversal. Volume is still predominantly negative, suggesting lower prices dead ahead. After that we can expect reversal. There was a pronounced bull hammer in silver in the middle of May towards the intraday low of which there is quite strong support - silver may drop no longer than the low of this hammer.
