Inflation, Deflation and Gold & Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we look upon yet more unprecedented times in financial markets, the debates about outcomes of inflation and deflation still rage. We are not necessarily wedded to either of these, taking the view that only policy responses from the financial authorities will reveal what lies ahead.

It seems most market participants wait with baited breathe to see how different policy responses in different jurisdictions will play out. In very general terms it appears the Fed is still more liquidity happy and ideologically aligned to stimulus and the Europeans, although often contradictory in their lack of consistency, are less keen on the printing press.

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Preparing for Gold 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImagine most are anxious to put 2011 into the history book. Many of the hopes and dreams of a year ago certainly fizzled as time passed. A raging bull was converted to a bear in nearly all financial markets. So, we do hope for change in the new year, in the markets and especially in November. As we all prepare for 2012, we hope to provide some thoughts for your consideration.

Are Central, Commercial Banks Lending or Selling Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big feature of last week's decline in the gold price has been the lending of gold into the market. Commercial banks could have been doing it, but there is evidence in the past that central banks have leased gold to cap the gold price and bring it down. The gold price declines were so rapid and extensive that some investors theorized that central banks, including the Federal Reserve, were actively selling gold. The talk is that Commercial banks were unable to get the dollar liquidity they needed, leasing gold under their wings to facilitate these loans at lower interest rates. After the massive swap arrangements made between the U.S. Fed and the E.C.B., many felt that the problems of dollar liquidity had been overcome; however, by the extensive leasing of gold, this does not appear true.

You Can’t Print More Gold, Price Could Reach $10,000 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat do you get when you mix negative real interest rates with stimulative money supply efforts by global central banks?

An exceptionally potent formula for higher gold prices that could send gold to the unimaginable level of $10,000 an ounce. Negative real interest rates and strong money supply growth are two key factors of what I refer to as the Fear Trade.

General Stock Market Reinforces the Bullish Outlook for Gold Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday’s EU summit has been billed as the best-- perhaps the last-- opportunity to save the euro. As we publish today’s essay, we still don’t know the results, and gold, like most asset classes, will react to headlines coming out of Europe. Will “Merkozy,” (ladies first), the leaders of Germany and France, be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat and save the day? On Monday the two issued an ultimatum demanding that all 17 nations in the eurozone agree to a change in European treaties that would compel them to balance budgets or face sanctions. German officials insist that budget discipline will restore investor confidence. However, the Franco-German plan could exacerbate Europe’s fundamental problem, which is a lack of growth.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWHOLESALE MARKET gold prices fell back to this week's low of $1705 per ounce Friday lunchtime in London, as Asian equities closed sharply lower but Eurozone and US equities rallied following news of the "fiscal discipline" being agreed by political leaders meeting in Brussels.

All 17 heads of state in the currency union have agreed to being bound by European Commission approval of their national budgets, with "automatic sanctions" hitting any member whose annual budget deficit exceeds 3% of GDP.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Krauth writes: Despite a pullback from its all-time high of about $1,920 an ounce set in September, gold is still trading in the $1,750 range. In fact, the glittering metal has gained 22% in the past 12 months.

What's more is that I believe gold prices will eclipse $2,200 an ounce next year, and shoot beyond even $5,000 an ounce after that.

Gold - The Simple Secular Thesis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's more subtle and sophisticated than "buy Gold and get rich." But in the end, not much. Traders and speculators are always looking for the edge - much like the hares racing the tortoise. But the tortoise method of investing for this secular cycle is important and should comprise a significant portion of one's portfolio regardless of your preferred time horizon when investing and/or speculating/trading. After all, when MF Global can happen in one of the so-called safe haven countries (i.e. the USA), then isn't a component of safety without counter party risk important? Holding paper fiat currency and stuffing it under the mattress requires infinite faith that the apparatchiks and central bankstaz pulling the strings will not fall into the trap of human nature that has plagued every currency, including those backed by Gold, since currencies were first invented. I am speaking of debasement and debauchery.

Emerging Bullish Scenario for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Paulenoff

It is no coincidence that the next and probably the most highly anticipated Euro-zone Summit is scheduled right in the timeframe for a low in the 5.5 month (122 day) cycle in spot gold prices.

Within a cycle of such length, the bottoming window is 7 days in an imperfect cyclical world, which means that gold already may have bottomed.

Buying Silver Is Like Buying Gold At $554 Today / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Hubert_Moolman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI think that buying silver today is like buying gold for $554 an ounce. Let me explain: As I am writing, silver is currently trading at about 65.2% (32.6/50) of its 1980 high. If gold was trading at 65.2% of its 1980 high, it would be trading at $554 (0.652*850).

Now, I really like gold, even at today’s price of $1 738, but why should I pay $1 738, if I can get it for $554 by buying silver and then exchanging it for gold when the gold/silver ratio is at an extreme (in favour of silver). The reason for this logic comes from the fundamental relationship between gold and silver as explained in my previous article.

Americans looking south of the Rio Grande tend to forget, if they ever knew, that Mexico is, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, now America's second largest source of imports. Of the United States' total crude oil imports averaging 9,033 thousand barrels per day (tbpd), Mexico is the second largest source of imports, at 1,319 tbpd, exceeded only by Canada with 2,666 tbpd.
