Wanted! Bearish Gold Bulls / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold's bull run is exhausted, apparently. Yet it's due only a shower, not a bath...

SO GOLD BULLS are turning bearish. But not really.

"A number of things which would have kept people with an eye on the upside for gold prices have now been neutralized," says RBS's Nick Moore, who cut the state-owned UK bank's 2012 targets for precious metals other than gold in January.

The Upside to a Natural Gas Downturn / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research writes: The energy market is a complex beast, its many parts interconnected through a multitude of linkages. When one part fails, the entire system reacts: certain linkages are burdened with extra stress, while other components sit idle. Only by studying the entire machine can one understand the rippling effects that stem from one change.

Gold Price Rollercoaster Likely to Go Up / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe roller coaster metaphor we used two weeks ago after the $90 flash crash in the price of gold seems appropriate this week as well. It must be tough out there for precious metals investors. Wednesday gold futures tumbled again. April-delivery gold fell $51.30, or three per cent, to settle at $1,642.90 an ounce, the lowest gold settlement price in more than eight weeks. The dollar strengthened and traders reacted to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s rate decision and policy statement in the previous session, which buried any hopes for now of more monetary easing in the short term. Investors have been hoping that the Fed would take action again to spur the economy.

Simple Index Called Gold 1980 Top, Now Points to At Least $3,000 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

Dincer YILMAZ writes: The ultimate function of gold is being money. Therefore it is natural that value of gold against other currencies responses to supply-demand laws. If a competitor currency (for example US dollar) becomes relatively abundant than gold, one can expect gold to appreciate against the other currency. On the other hand, the same competitor currency can offer advantageous real rates to investors and depositors, so gold depreciates this time due to higher demand for the other currency even if the other currency’s supply growth rate exceeds gold’s supply growth rate.

When to Buy Silver, the Metal of Emperors? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is a question that pops up in our mail box on a regular basis. The standard answer for the average retail buyer who has neither the time nor the inclination to do the hard yards, in terms of due diligence, is to layer-in your acquisitions via a rolling programme of purchases. This can be implemented regardless of the day to day 'white noise' that has many behaving as though they had spent the morning in a double shot Expresso Drinking Contest. Sell, Buy, Buy, Sell.... we all know that emotional white knuckle ride and it needs to be side lined. Try Chill, Relax, Relax and Chill for a day or two and switch to a herbal tea.

Barron’s Gold Mining Index To Double Over The Next Couple Of Years? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Hubert_Moolman

The behaviour of gold stocks during this gold bull market is really not that different to the gold bull market of the 70s. It was not until almost the end of the bull market (in 1979) that the gold stocks really started to take-off. Those who think gold stocks will not rise during this bull market will be disappointed, and need to consider the evidence presented here.

Gold "Vulnerable" as U.S. Treasury Bond Market Sell-Off Worsens / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Stock Dividends Are Getting Physical Paid in Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Gold often receives criticism from investors such as Warren Buffett for not producing a yield. This claim often falls on deaf ears because proven gold miners such as Newmont Mining Corp. and AngloGold Ashanti both pay a dividend north of 2 percent. However, the downside to these dividends is that they are paid in a fiat currency, somewhat defeating the intentions of gold investors. A new dividend program seeks to change this process by giving investors the choice to receive dividends in the form of physical bullion, instead of paper or electronic dollars.

Gold Stairway to Heaven / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's now 6 months since gold hit its current all-time high. How long 'til the next...?

Thanks to hindsight, the bull market in gold which followed Richard Nixon unpegging the US Dollar, and therefore the rest of the world, from its last pretence of a Gold Standard sounds as inevitable today as Jimmy Page's solo in Stairway to Heaven, also a 1971 classic.

Big-Picture Uptrend Still Intact for SLW, Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although Silver Wheaton (SLW) remains under bleeding pressure as we speak, my big picture work argues that a new bull phase for the stock has been in progress since the October 4 low, and that recent weakness from the Feb 29 high at 40.39 to today's low at 33.55 (so far) is the tail end of a pullback within the still-dominant uptrend pattern.

As long as SLW weakness is contained above 32.00, my work argues in favor of being long.

What's Driving the Gold, Silver Prices? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold rose to $1,700 last week and is holding that level in a very tight trading range.

The last few weeks have seen a larger consolidation pattern forming, pointing to a much bigger consolidating pattern that implies far more than just a short-term trading move just ahead of us. The forces that drive both supply and demand in the very short-term are just about in balance, so it is appropriate that we look at these forces to see how they influence gold prices in the short, medium, and long term.

Geordie Mark, a uranium analyst with Haywood Securities in Vancouver, explores the possibilities in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, emphasizing the industry's strong long-term fundamentals.

The Energy Report: It's been nearly one year since the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, but there's not a lot of blowback from environmentalists or politicians. An index of uranium equities is up 46% from their bottom on Oct. 4, although it's still 50% underwater from a year ago. Has the Fukushima effect dissipated?
