Why Has Gold Been Down? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: In spite of some short-term fixes, there remains no real resolution to the sovereign debt issues in many European countries. We're certainly not spending less money in the US, and now we're bailing out Europe via currency swaps with the European Central Bank. Shouldn't gold be rising?

Gold Stocks Complete First Major Bottom Since 2008 / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll bull markets have to endure a plethora of corrections and all bull markets have to endure a handful of major corrections. The gold stocks are no different. In fact, due to nature of the mining business and the high-beta status of these stocks, it is very easy for investors to forget that they (the gold stocks) are in a real structural bull market. Corrections and crashes are commonplace and yes, even in a bull market. Yet in 2011 the gold equities did not crash. They merely digested and consolidated the massive recovery gains from 2009 and 2010. This persistent consolidation has left many scared, frustrated and distrustful of the sector at precisely the wrong time. Gold stocks have quietly completed a major bottom, their first since 2008.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Krauth writes: Silver prices soared as high as $50 an ounce last year before experiencing a brief correction that took it back below $30.

However, despite this blip, mounting inflationary pressures, a weakening dollar, and emerging market demand will see silver retest its record highs in 2012. In fact, this time around it could even climb as high as $150 an ounce.

Silver Industrial Demand - The Commodity to Watch / Commodities / Steel Sector

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Forecasting the future of the economy is a difficult task; one who can do it with regularity will most certainly see massive investment profits.  Most of this complexity comes from the lack of clarity in commodities prices.

Commodities earn their price from demand.  Most commodities are tied to a specific industry – palladium is a barometer for autos, while steel is a barometer for real estate.  Some commodities are then related entirely to geography – copper is the commodity for a growing Asian economy, while oil is the commodity for all emerging markets.

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBaker Steel Capital trades on its analysts' "intellectual capital and technical expertise" when it comes to knowing when and where to invest. Right now, its funds favor equities over the physical gold market.

Wild Gyrations in Gold and Commodities / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf traders in the commodities markets were to check into a Psyche ward, the files would no doubt read "Bi-Polar" or Schizophrenic." This is so, because commodity traders have a habit of fixating on a set of data one day, and then quickly forgetting about the data the very next day, and re-focusing on something else. Market sentiment often turns on a dime, and without notice. This shifting of sentiment in commodity futures is nothing new, of course. That's why for decades, dabbling in commodities was considered too risky for most investors, since sentiment, by definition, is unpredictable and impossible to measure.

Gold Price Facing Resistance Cluster / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Right now my technical work is undecided as to whether gold and the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) established THE corrective low on Dec 29 at 148.27. What I think I do know is that the upmove so far from 148.27 to today's high at 157.02 (+5.9%) has propelled the price structure into a very heavy cluster of resistance.

This resistance is represented by the simple and exponential 200-day moving averages, the prior Sep-Oct bottoming period, and my declining shorter-term EMAs of 14, 30 and 50 days.

Investment in African Renewable Energy Reaches $3.6 Billion in 2011 / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst, the bad news.

Although Africa has vast fossil and renewable energy sources, only twenty percent of its population has direct access to electricity and in some rural areas, four out of five people are completely without power. According to the UN, over 600 million Africans currently do not have access to electric power. A depressing 70 percent of Sub-Saharan Africa's population is living without access to clean and safe energy for their basic needs such as cooking, lighting and heating, making energy poverty among the most urgent issues facing Africa. Worldwide, more than 1.4 billion people worldwide have no access to electricity, and 1 billion more only have intermittent access.

The Gold Bullet 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mario_Innecco

Could 2012 be the year in which Chairman Bernanke will use the ultimate tool a government has, under a paper-money system, to combat deflation and weak economic growth by printing money to reduce the value of the dollar? It is certainly possible as all the other tools which he mentioned in his November 21, 2002 speech to the National Economic Club of Washington D.C. have been utilized. If one combs through that speech one sees that the tool of driving rates to zero has already been used up, the tool of buying government and MBSs securities, in order to cap longer term yields, has been used as well and so the only tool left could be to "print money and distribute it willy-nilly" as Mr Bernanke points out in his famous speech. *

Precious Metal Investors Battered by Gold and Whipped By Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we enter the New Year only the firmest of gold and silver investors are holding with serene assurance, as the gold and silver prices have been trending down for a couple of months.

Prices have softened again since our latest update on this issue, and thin markets over the festive period allowed relatively low levels of market activity to have an un-naturally significant effect on price direction. These things happen.

Gold Going to $3,000 - $10,000 in 2012! Here’s Why / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in 2009 I began keeping track of those financial analysts, economists, academics and commentators who were of the opinion that it was just a matter of time before gold reached a parabolic peak price well in excess of the prevailing price. As time passed the list grew dramatically and at last count numbered 140 such individuals who have gone on record as saying that gold will go to at least $3,000 – and as high as $20,000 - before the gold bubble finally pops. Of more immediate interest, however, is that 8 of those individuals believe gold will reach its parabolic peak price in the next 12 months - even as early as February, 2012. This article identifies those 8 and outlines their rationale for reaching their individual price expectations.

Case for Sustained $100 Crude Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2011, oil was one of the top performing commodities among those we track, with Brent rising more than 13 percent. Geopolitical risk and unexpected non-OPEC supply losses caused oil to rise significantly in early 2011. By October, we saw the black gold sink to a low of $96 per barrel before rising to its current level of nearly $108 a barrel.
