Keynes, the closet Gold bug / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his 1923 book ‘A Tract on Monetary Reform’, John Maynard Keynes famously wrote ‘In truth, the gold standard is already a barbarous relic.’

Many gold bugs have come to take this quote as a belief that Keynes applied this line of thought, by implication, to gold as well.

The Case for Higher Gold Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDiane Alter writes: Gold prices had gold bugs giddy in the fall of 2011. In September, the luminous yellow metal touched an intraday high of $1,920 a troy ounce, putting the precious metal up roughly 35% for the year.

At the time it seemed like investors, traders and even the guy at the corner store were all buying, hoarding, and lusting for gold.

The Silver Bull Market Is Over? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Investmentscore.com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the Silver Bull Market Over?  This is one question that we feel very confident that the answer to it is no; but still we are specifically watching for articles or news stories suggesting that the precious metals bull market is over.  We have seen a few articles announcing the end of the metals bull market and we will explain why this is significant to us later in this article.  But first, there are a host of reasons why we think the bull market in precious metals is alive and well and we will address a few of these reasons in this article.

Precious Metals: Don’t Want To Play Anymore? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dudley_Baker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe suspect that many precious metals investors are saying, “We don’t want to play anymore!” and our reply is, “You want to quit right now, right at the bottom of this cycle? You must be crazy - crazy with a capital C!” True, this is a very challenging market environment for resource shares, but we know what the ultimate outcome will be: higher share prices. The only question is “when” and our opinion is that we are very close in time (within days or a week or two at most) of being able to say that the lows are behind us. Let me explain.

Lindsay: No Final Bottom in Gold before Summer / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEd Carlson writes: In the course of a year career George Lindsay never applied his methods to anything other than the equity markets. The reasons were obvious; the Standard Time Spans, an integral part of his methods, were derived from a study of the equity markets covering more than 150 years of market data. An undertaking such as that would have been exhausting. No doubt, Lindsay left the investigation and application of his methods to other asset classes for other analysts.

Gasoline Futures in Decline ... Ominous Sign for Economy? / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let's notice that nearby gasoline futures have been in the grasp of a meaningful decline from its March 29 high at $3.45/gal into today at $3.04.

With weekly RSI pointed straight down, suggesting more weakness directly ahead, gasoline points towards an approaching confrontation with its rising 40-week (200 Day) moving average, now at $2.99. This needs to contain the selling pressure to avert downside acceleration towards a test of the major support line at $2.69 off of the December 2008 low ($0.79).

Were We Wrong About the U.S. Dollar? Is it Safer than Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs figures are released this week which cast yet more negative light on the US economy we ask why is the US dollar not suffering much as a result? Were wrong about the dollar? Is it a safer safe haven than gold investment?

This week figures were released to show that US debt is now at a record $15.962bn, or 101.5% of GDP. One wonders if President Obama, or in fact any potential sovereign leader out there has any idea how to solve this without printing yet more money and issuing yet more debt.

What Do Americans Think About Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Precious metals have been relatively quiet this week. After posting its best weekly gain in two months, gold is trading slightly lower at about $1,650 per ounce. Meanwhile, silver is trading near $30.50 per ounce. Gold and silver are currently taking a pause, but have been in a bull market for more than a decade and apparently Americans are taking notice.

Betting Against Crude Oil Falling Below $40 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Marin_Katusa

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the latest Casey Research conference, respected investment analyst Porter Stansberry stood at the podium and predicted that the price of oil will fall below US$40 per barrel within the next 12 months. Part of his reasoning revolves around the impact that the shale gas revolution has had in the United States – he believes a similar thing will happen with oil.

Porter is a friend of mine and a very smart, successful individual… but I think not.

A Weak Economy Remains Gold's Best Friend / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was Bob Prechter of Elliott Wave fame, likely among others who noted that correlations between all asset classes are quite strong during a Depression. This is true in a cyclical sense but not in a structural sense. Stocks tumbled in the 1929-1941 period while commodities, led by Gold and gold producers, increased in value. We've experienced similar phenomena in the past 12 years. Cyclically, there has been a correlation between these asset classes. Structurally, stocks have been in a bear market and resource sector has been in a bull market. The driving force has been a weak economy and bear market which usually leads to more inflationary policy, which in turn benefits the resource sector. Are we soon to see a replay of this scenario?

Manganese Production Gearing Up Worldwide / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleManganese may be the fourth most used metal in the world but last year ended on a relatively weak note for manganese products. While Chinese ports had large stockpiles of manganese ore, the weak demand for steel long products was reflected in a weak demand for manganese. The economic uncertainty and low business confidence in Europe and the USA were key reasons for the lack of interest in manganese. The recovery of the construction industry in these regions would certainly be a big boost to the manganese market and prices would firm up by 2013.

Rare Earths Industry Expanding Outside China’s Borders / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleColorado based Molycorp Inc. is one of the few non-Chinese mining companies develop-ing rare earth metal mines. The company’s shares shot up by over 7% when it announced that its Mountain Pass rare earth mine in California contained at least 36% more proven or probable reserves than earlier estimated. The deposit is now estimated to contain about 2.94 billion pounds of rare earth oxide equivalent, an amount that is about 11 times the existing annual global demand of 120,000 tons. The number could rise further with progress in drilling.

Open Market Manipulation of the Gold and Silver Futures Market By Banks and Producers / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Marshall_Swing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals marketplace and even main street media is all abuzz about the 7,500 contract trade, in gold, on Monday, April 30th. Gold fell $15 in the space of a minute as many news outlets reported. Speculative traders think the trade could have been a fat finger. COMEX floor traders say otherwise and think the trade was deliberate just like any other trade because no one makes a trade of that size without specific instructions.

Gold Down in Dollars, Up in Euros, "Anemic" US Economy Misses Bernanke Jobs Target / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE SPOT MARKET gold price rallied to $1658 an ounce ahead of Wednesday's US trading, following the release of disappointing US jobs data – though gold in Dollars remained down on the week so far.
