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.

By: Zeal_LLC

Don't Panic on Precious Metals Tumble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: John_Browne

Hedge Fund Action Doesn’t Change Gold and Silver Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Last week, hedge funds sold off their bullion holdings in what was a monumental run to the exits.  As the price of silver and gold trended higher against declines in other commodities, equities, and so-called risk assets, the price for bullion gave institutional investors the comfort they needed to boost cash.

But how much has changed since hedge funds eased up on margin plays in commodities?

Physical Silver Shortage to Follow Paper Selloff / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In less than one week, the price of silver gave up some 9 months of gains in a move from $40 per ounce to $28.  The current price for silver, which is the lowest price in 9 months, is sure to create shortages for physical silver.

The physical silver market is very much its own market, one which is dominated by small silver investors and coin collectors.  Compared to Wall Street, where margins change in a matter of minutes, and global issues permeate throughout trading floors, the local coin dealer hasn’t changed in decades, let alone the past few weeks.

China’s Rare Earths Monopoly - Peril or Opportunity? / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe prosperity of China’s “authoritarian capitalism” is increasingly rewriting the ground-rules worldwide on the capitalist principles that have dominated the West’s economy for nearly two centuries.

Nowhere is this shadow war more between the two systems more pronounced than in the global arena of production of rare earths elements (RREs), where China currently holds a de facto monopoly, raising concerns from Washington through London to Tokyo about what China might do with its hand across the throat of high-end western technology.

Greek Default, Eurozone/Bank Crisis and the Effect on Gold, Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe agree with Professor Rogoff that Greece should have defaulted some time ago. Despite all the current efforts, Greece will default and that contagion will result in a global, banking crisis. Even if we're wrong, the mountains of money that will be created and poured into the debt hole will benefit the gold and silver prices. The Greek debt crisis is about stemming the spread of bank runs, the breakdown of the other PIIGS countries debt situation, and potentially the fragmentation of the Eurozone. We're on the brink.

Gold Stocks Continue To Disappoint / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent major rally in gold is now experiencing a correction, so it is time to take a look at how gold stocks compared to a number of other gold trading vehicles. Quite frankly, it was abysmal. The argument that gold stocks are still the best gold trading vehicle is absolutely absurd. That being said, this article is in no way trying to discredit any gold mining, exploration companies or the efforts of the industry. The aim of this article is to simply show that gold stocks in general are unsuitable when trying to benefit from rising gold prices.

Gold and Silver Producers Due for Big Upside / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Kachanovsky, known as "Mexico Mike," doesn't follow the so-called smart money. Founder of the website smartinvestment.ca, Mexico Mike believes mainstream commentators are leading investors astray by insisting that it is too late to get into mining stocks and precious metals. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Mexico Mike explains why everyone needs to have some exposure to precious metals and gives his favorite prospects.

The Gold Report: Gold juniors fared worse than most equities in the economic collapse of 2008. Now economic fears are gripping the market once again. The S&P 500 has been trending down since mid-June. Many fear a double-dip recession—if not worse. Why do you still believe in junior precious metal equities given the current market conditions?

Are Gold and Silver Bugs Running Scared? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Since touching $1,535 briefly on Monday, gold prices have rallied and even stabilized above $1600.  Silver, which touched near $26 on Monday, has climbed back above $30.  The precious metals seem to be at the whims of Europe and a strengthening US dollar.  Furthermore, Germany (Europe’s economic powerhouse), does not appear to be pleased with the latest so-called sovereign debt crisis solution.

Electric Car Fantasy And The Real World / Commodities / US Auto's

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA CAREFUL AVOIDANCE OF REALITY
With a few clicks on a touchpad or mouse we can align a forest of nice arguments and reasons for the coming all-electric car fleets of the consumer world, usually starting and ending with the threat of $200-a-barrel oil but also including Al Gore's touching calls for protecting polar bears from global warming. We can also find that both oil exporting Norway and Saudi Arabia have elites who take a major interest in electric car investing, or at least in-and-out financial plays, but in the Norwegian case its elites also continue to defend the national sport of hunting and killing whales, while worrying in public about polar bears and the "possible 7 metre rise" in world sea levels that burning Norwegian oil might cause, by about 2075.

China Eyes West Africa’s Iron Ore: Junior Posts Positive Drill Results / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChris Devauld writes: Despite the ongoing economic turmoil and growing concern over a slowdown in global steel production, Chinese demand for iron ore remains strong. Having imported 618 million tons last year, China is by far the world’s largest iron consumer. China only produces 14% of the world’s Fe, while consuming approximately 50% of it. With 85% of its iron ore coming from Australia, Brazil, India and South Africa, the economic giant finds itself in a war to break from its dependence upon the “Big 3” producers—BHP Billiton [BHP-NYSE] , Rio Tinto [RIO-NYSE] and Vale [VALE-NYSE].
