Silver Price Crash Into Accumulation Zone / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFollowing our highly successful foray into the future to see what would happen to the silver price, many readers have been urging me to clamber back into my time machine and go Back to the Future to see what is going is to happen in the next few weeks. However, on this occasion I have decided not to. It was not concern about disrupting the space-time continuum, or even a sudden attack of moral rectitude concerning looking at charts 3 weeks before other people get a chance to see them, but the simple fact that it isn't necessary. You see, we have all the evidence that we require in the here and now that silver has probably bottomed, or is very close to doing so, and that it is set to enter another advancing phase shortly. Let's now look at this evidence.

Gold About to Enter Accumulation Zone / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn classic fashion gold's brutal plunge ended in a zone of strong support just above its 200-day moving average. Normally, a drop of this severity would lead to more downside action, but there is now strong evidence that gold hit bottom last Monday, and that it is now basing prior to turning higher again.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bulls are saying gold is ready to turn and go into new highs, the bears are saying watch out below, I’m saying who knows?  The best I can say is where we are and the direction gold (and silver) is headed.  But for how long and how far, that’s guess work or “predictions”.

Market Volatility Continues To Shake Up The Rare Earths Industry / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

After two years of continuous increase, the prices of rare earth metals seem to have reached a more balanced level in recent times. The primary causes for this change is the optimistic supply scene and the possibility of China facing legal challenges because of its export restrictions. China controls almost 97% of the global market and over the years, its export restrictions and other policies have sparked panic buying, frantic searches for alternative sources and price hikes of almost ten times in certain cases. Certain companies have also begun reducing their usage of rare earth metals.

Agri-Equities Potential for Significant Profit Expansion / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA center of global commerce? Connecting to the global Agri-Food system? Helping to feed Japan, Korea, and China? Why yes, Moses Lake, Washington comes immediately to mind. In the Hay Report from World news services via wenatcheeworld.com we discover, "Moses Lake (Sept 16) -- Tonnage this week: 18,180; last week: 19,555; last year: 14,970." That year-to-year increase for bales of hay sold is 20+%, and might have been higher had supply not been constrained in the U.S.

Gold, Exciting Times / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big picture is shaping up quite nicely now that we have ended another quarter. A nasty cyclical global equity bear market has begun, the third of the ongoing secular bear market for "advanced" Western economies that began in 2000. As an advanced economy, Japan is the odd man out, as they have been mired in a secular equity bear market for almost 22 years now. There are some interesting "big picture" nuances to this cyclical bear as they relate to precious metals that should provide phenomenal profit opportunities for those with cash on hand.

Are Silver and Copper Prices Predicting a Global Recession? / Commodities / Double Dip Recession

By: J_W_Jones

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver and copper have recently been going through their own private bear markets. Since the open on September 1st, silver futures have sold off by more than 25%. During the same time frame, copper futures sold off by around 24%. Both metals are extremely oversold, but lower prices are still possible.

Are the bear markets in copper and silver an attempt to warn market participants that slower economic condition are ahead? Are equities going to take a huge hit on slower future growth?

Europe's Debt Crisis and Its Effect on Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you want to know the future, pay attention to the decisions European policymakers will have to make regarding debt, says Scott Gardner, chief investment officer at Verdmont Capital. In an exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he shares his analysis of debt policy investment implications, plus which gold mines Verdmont likes in Latin America and beyond.

The Gold Report: In one of your June research reports you wrote, "In the Eurozone, there has been limited political will to really make an impact on the debt side of the equation. With gross domestic product (GDP) growth set to slow, things should really get interesting for euro policymakers as they attempt to make their shaky union work." In the Eurozone, there is more than adequate money to take care of the debt situation, but the question remains, is there enough political will to keep all the member countries inside the Eurozone? What sort of impact will pending Eurozone issues have on the gold price?

Copper Lacking Buyers / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

So far my target window for a significant low in nearby copper prices in the 3.10-3.06 area is looking pretty accurate. That said, before we run out and load up on copper, it would behoove us to realize that despite holding right in my optimal target zone, the price structure has not yet been able to stage any sort of meaningful rally.

Will A China Economic Slowdown Affect Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After finishing the second quarter at $1,505, gold is on pace to finish the third quarter with its 11th consecutive quarterly gain. Although gold has been in a bull market for the past decade, recent concerns from a China slowdown are weighing on many markets. In September, gold prices and Asian stock markets had their worst monthly performance since October 2008.

Is Gold and Silver Rally Likely at the Moment? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Although we had described the fall in precious metals prices, we can understand the shock for those who had gotten used to the idea that gold prices only go in one direction—up. A good metaphor here would be gold taking the stairs to go up, but the elevator to do down. Last Friday it was more like gold falling headlong down the elevator shaft with the worse one day drop in five years. It definitely got ugly, but that’s normal. It’s part of the game, part of the ride. Investors fled to the U.S. (fiat) dollar and to U.S. Treasuries (that just got downgraded last month by Standard & Poor’s.) Go figure! They have to settle their debt in dollars. The sharp decline was difficult to digest especially since we had come off a period in August where it seemed that gold could do no wrong. It shot up when markets plummeted, and shot up when markets soared.

Silvercorp Goes on the Offensive / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: I’m writing from China, where I’m attending Silvercorp Metals’ (SVM) mine tour with other analysts and reporters. We met with company principals the first morning, including CEO and Explorer’s League honoree Rui Feng at their downtown Beijing offices, where the bulk of the discussion centered around a point-by-point rebuttal of the charges made by the now-infamous short sellers. With a reporter’s camera snapping, it became apparent to me that Rui and company have shifted from playing defense to going on the offensive.
