When Will the Gold Bull Market Turn Into a Mania? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs our readers may know, we’re suckers for the theory that markets move in generational cycles. The basic idea is that the knee-jerk reaction is often the strongest one and that investors have a tendency to ‘stick to what they know’. The length of the prime of one generation’s career seems to be a suitable period of time for such ‘things that people know’ to become firmly lodged. Ironically, such lodging is a dire circumstance in a business that amounts to pseudo-futurology.

Gold and Commodities 2011 Halftime Report / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommodities don’t all perform in the same way. In any given year, a particular commodity will go gangbusters and outperform the group. However, that commodity will typically come back to Earth and underperform the following year or the year after that. This is why active management is important when investing in commodities. Active managers can benefit from rotating from winners to laggards or by investing in the companies which produce, farm or mine commodities most effectively.

Gold Price Nearing Resistance / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs bullish as I am, and have been on Gold since 2003, I am still rather impressed with the latest run-up to fresh highs.   To be frank, I was expecting more downside beyond the recent pivot low at 1478, and was a bit surprised at how quickly the shiny metal took out its early May high.

Embracing the most bullish of Elliott Wave subdivisions from the primary 4-wave base at 681 in October of 2008, I am reading the current advance as an intermediate (3) wave along Gold’s long journey to toward completing its primary fifth.   Once done, the current thrust to fresh highs may mark all-of (3).

Fall in U.S. Real Interest Rates to Send Gold Over $1800 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of main determinants of gold prices in the medium to long term is US real interest rates. US real rates are the rate of interest that can be earned on US Government bonds, minus the expected rate of inflation. One can monitor US real rates by watching the yields on Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS) and we watch them closely since they exhibit a negative relationship with gold.

The Case for Gold Price Manipulation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a geologist by training, it's no surprise that S&A Resource Report Editor Matt Badiali takes a data-driven approach to investing. In this exclusive Gold Report interview, he shares calculations for trailing stops and strategies to take profits with prospect generators and points to the signs of gold price manipulation.

The Gold Report: Matt, in the June edition of S&A Resource Report, you wrote that resource stocks could see some pullback once quantitative easing (QE) was no longer injecting money into the system. QE2 ended last week. Is your thesis proving correct and what are your strategies to mitigate post-QE2 portfolio risk? Read full article... Read full article...

Gold and Silver Ready for Big-Time Run as Global Breakdown Begins / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn important shift in global markets is taking place and it bears introspection. Gold has broken to a new high while Silver has established a bottom. Precious metals stocks have rebounded significantly from support. At the same time, important global stock markets are in the early stage of a technical breakdown. We don’t foresee a repeat of 2007-2008, yet odds are good that global stock markets are beginning a cyclical bear market and unlike the last cycle this is coming at a time when precious metals are set to accelerate to the upside.

Gold's Historic Rally Fuelled by Negative Interest Rates and Euro Disintegration / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve has just ended its $600-billion Treasury bond-buying program, known as QE-2, and already, traders are trying to figure what new tricks the Fed might have up its sleeve, in order counter a significant correction in the US-stock market in the second half of 2011. Including QE-1 and QE-2, the Fed pumped $2.35-trillion into the coffers of the Wall Street Oligarchs. Together with near-zero interest rates, and the printing of trillions of dollars the Fed fueled a speculative stampede into the commodity and stock markets, enabling traders to record bumper profits, while doing little to reduce the jobless rate.

By: Ben_Traynor

Gold is Not Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

So there you have it, after 6000 years of being money, gold is not money according the Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke. Ron Paul asked him directly and the answer was ‘no’ as you can see on this five minute clip. This is a strange comment coming at a time when gold prices are making all time highs as we can see on chart below, where gold is sitting at $1590.10/oz.

An Epic Energy Crunch, Global Crude Oil Demand Exceeds Production / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe majority of the world’s developed economies are growing at a sluggish pace, yet the price of NYMEX crude is trading around US$100 per barrel.  Interestingly, the price of Brent Crude (the price most nations pay) is even higher!

You may recall that during the last oil spike in 2008, world governments blamed those wily speculators.  Therefore, in order to diminish speculation, the authorities banned leveraged ‘long’ oil exchange traded funds.

How Gold Performs During Deflation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the undue attention that has been paid to the chimera of inflation this year, it should be clear by now that deflation is the far greater structural problem. One clue that deflation, not inflation, is the main issue can be seen in the biggest form of savings and investment among the U.S. middle class, namely real estate.

Nevada’s Massive Mountain Of Molybdenum Makes Milestone / Commodities / Molybdenum

By: Jeb_Handwerger

I introduced General Moly to my subscribers in May of 2009.  At that time, the permitting process was not paramount, financing was the critical consideration as we were still emerging from the depths of the mining sector crash during the 2008 credit crisis.  At the same time, China (FXI) was embarking on a search for potential mining acquisitions in the West.  It was inevitable that a plum such as General Moly (GMO) would catch Beijing’s eyes.

China Gets Picky on Energy and Metal Resources Buying Prices / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research Energy Team writes: It turns out that China is not willing to pay whatever it has to for energy and metal resources.

Several resource deals have faltered in recent months, indicating an increasingly choosy Chinese perspective on energy and metal acquisitions. Add to that the growing concern that the global economy is once again stumbling and that commodity prices may be near a top, and you have a Chinese deal-making market that has gone from 60 to zero in no time.

Bullish Copper Technicals / Commodities / Metals & Mining

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCopper is growing increasingly popular among speculators, who are catapulting this unassuming base metal up into the rarified ranks of market-darling commodities.  Neither precious like gold, nor immediately consumed like oil, copper’s price action is quite unique.  And despite some risky headwinds remaining, its technicals are once again turning bullish today.

Crucial Gold and Silver Showdown Opportunities / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that Gold has broken out to its all-time nominal high, we have a Showdown with Great Opportunities enabled by, but at the same time threatened by, Great Challenges. Consider:

“On June 30, QE2 ended with a whimper. The Fed’s second round of “quantitative easing” involved $600 billion created with a computer keystroke for the purchase of long-term government bonds. But the government never actually got the money, which went straight into the reserve accounts of banks, where it still sits today. Worse, it went into the reserve accounts of FOREIGN banks, on which the Federal Reserve is now paying 0.25% interest.
