Gold Optimism Reality Check / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistory shows that one cannot “manipulate” a primary trend (and maybe not even a secondary trend)

Despite all the optimistic noises regarding recent movements of the gold price, the chart below (3% X 3 box reversal Point & Figure chart, courtesy stockcharts.com) is still showing $1109 as the prevailing target price. The gold price will need to rise to $1833 for that target to be negated.

Intermarket Explanation for Coming Gold Market Bubble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we travel to Toronto for the Cambridge House conference, we thought we’d share a few points from our upcoming presentation titled “The Setup for a Gold Bubble.” There are many different ways we can analyze this. By that we mean fundamental triggers, historical ratios, valuations and potential money flows, etcetera can explain the setup for and why this bull market will become a bubble. Today, we focus on intermarket analysis, which is one of our favorite subsets of technical analysis.

Silver and the Myth of Diminishing Returns From QE / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is lots of talk in the financial media about how there are diminishing returns from QE (i.e. money printing) with each successive round of counterfeiting. This is only true because such commentators are stuck in paperbug world and focusing on common stocks. But common stocks are in a secular bear market, so it makes sense that there could be diminishing returns on common equities related to bailing out banks and governments by destroying the purchasing power of the currencies of the world.

QE3, SPR Release and Gasoline Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith crude oil accounting for 65% of the price of gasoline, there's typically a high correlation between the price of oil and gasoline. However, there's been a disconnect between the two for the most part of this year. The main reason for the disconnect is the divergence of supply market fundamentals.

In this exclusive Gold Report interview, Lundin explains why he believes it is time to be aggressive in equity positions and names companies that could benefit the most from the coming leg up.

The Gold Report: We just had a third round of bond buying in quantitative easing (QE). Will QE3 help the economy?

Gold Long Term Bull Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick McGough writes: The Gold Bull market started during the first quarter of 2001, and has now been in play for approximately 11 1/2 years. Commodity cycles tend to have 13 year bull markets and 21 year bear markets. This completes a 34 year cycle and for the moment Gold appears to be in the last 1-1 1/2 years of this cycle. Fortunately for us traders this tends to be the most explosive part of the cycle. In the actual economy Gold really does not serve as a commodity but as a currency. If this were not the case why do central banks accumulate or hold gold as reserves? The yellow metal is truly the currency of last resort.

Crude Oil Prices are Headed Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Kent Moors writes: My latest trip to London may have centered on the briefings I gave on Iranian oil sanctions, but I also did a number of media appearances.

As I have mentioned before, questions from European interviewers are generally more knowledgeable and to the point than in the states. This may be because places like London are much closer to the events directly affecting oil prices.

The Great Graphite Supply Shakeup / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors who remember the lithium boom (and bust) a few years ago may be twice shy to enter a space with big upside potential tied to electric vehicles. But the parallels between graphite and lithium are superficial, insists Simon Moores, analyst with Industrial Minerals. Graphite, unlike lithium, supplies layers of demand, with reliable end-users in the steel industry. Meanwhile, China's production lull is making way for market entrants. In this exclusive interview with The Critical Metals Report, Moores profiles graphite miners around the world competing for the market's attention.

Measuring Gold Fiat Currency Performance Since 1971 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1971 President Nixon closed the window that allowed U.S. dollars to be sold for gold owned by the U.S. Just before that, the price of gold was $35 an ounce. Since then gold has been called a 'barbarous relic', a term used by Keynes, the famous economist.From that time on, the world's currencies stood merely on the confidence their governments engendered and the control they exercised over international financial dealings of all kinds. That confidence lasted until 2007 when the credit crunch brought government financing on both sides of the Atlantic into question. Up until now the performance of the underlying value of currencies has hidden these questions as exchange rates are adequately 'managed' through swap arrangements to stabilize exchange rate movements to the extent that violent moves don't happen. But the real value of currencies in terms of their real solvency is now a matter of open debate. As of now, relative to the amount of gold available to markets, the price of gold is the only measure of value that currencies can be held to. We look at that and look at the conditions that are determining the value of currencies now and in the future.

QE and the Commodity Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the recent announcements of the ECB’s OMT program, (outright monetary transactions), and the FED’s QE 3 program, (open ended asset purchases), we were forced to not only review the equity markets, but also the commodity markets. We updated the commodity charts last weekend. Those who review our public charts, on a regular basis, are one step ahead of this report. We will start with a review of the GTX (S&P GSCI Commodity Index), then all five of its sectors.

Manipulation of the Gold Price and the Crash of Paper Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is much discussion these days as to whether the price of gold is being manipulated. The answer is simply “yes.”

It is likely that most potential gold investors would agree that the major financial institutions have the ability to influence the gold price. They would also agree that to do so would be of benefit to those institutions. Yet, many investors still have difficulty making the final leap to agree that, if the institutions can manipulate the gold price and, by doing so, will profit from it, they will actually manipulate the price. Odd, as this would seem to me to be the easiest of the three premises to accept.

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Buy Silver Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

Kerry Kutz submits: Silver hits $35 and gets driven down again
We were in Chicago for the HardAssets conference last week. This was a new show that was sparsely attended. However, there were some good companies telling their stories and I think you'll enjoy hearing about them. If we own them or plan to own them, we'll always let you know. We don't tout stocks for anyone. All we do is tell their stories. But there's another story that's far more important than that of any precious metals producer. And that is market rigging. Chris Powell of GATA.org said it best when he uttered the phrase, "There are no longer any markets, only interventions."

Gold and Silver When Financial Repression Fails / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial repression may prove to be the policy that triggers the inevitable return to fair value in precious metals. The failure of this academic policy, originally deployed in the 1950’s,adds to the list of possible scenarios triggering the failure of the manipulative price suppression that has been observed in the precious metals futures markets.

How Gold and Silver Safe Haven in Today's Troubled World  / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The reasons for holding precious metals as a relatively safe haven for one’s personal wealth are numerous. 

One common investing thesis for buying precious metals is that these intrinsically valuable commodities can hold their value in times of rising price levels. This characteristic can help American savers keep pace with credit expansion and paper currency debasement.
