Impact on Gold Market If China Economy Overtakes U.S. / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe heard that China's economy was going to be the same size as the U.S. economy by 2016. This is considerably faster than U.S. economists thought would be the case just two years ago. At the speed China is growing it will dwarf the U.S. by 2020. The encouragement the Chinese government has given to the development of the gold market in China and the direct incitement from them to buy gold tells us that this is a long-term policy. It also tells us that they would not favor a significant rise in the exchange rate of the Yuan, particularly against the dollar, because this would lower the gold price in the Yuan. So what will the Chinese gold market look like in 2020?

Gold and Silver Trends Depend on US Policy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD reversed half of a 1% rally to $1510 per ounce in London on Monday, easing back as the US Dollar rose on the forex market and European stock markets fell hard.

US crude oil contracts stalled after a 2.7% rally took them back to $100 per barrel.

The Commodities Bubble Hasn't Burst, It's Just Taking a Breather / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: Panicked investors retreated from silver, oil and copper this week, leading many to believe the commodities bubble had finally popped - but experts say this bull market will pick up again.

The Standard & Poor's GSCI Index that follows 24 raw materials fell as much as 11.4% in five days, the longest losing streak since August.

Is It Time to Buy Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnless you have been hiding under a rock, you probably know that silver has had a major correction over the past week. The precious metal plummeted about 30% from a high of almost $50 an ounce to less than $35 yesterday. This six-day drop is one of the largest since 1983.

Silver has given back just about all of its gains for the past month and some traders are thinking it might be time to get long. But before you run and buy silver, there are a couple things to consider.

Gold Transition to the D-Wave / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't let the title fool you, for reasons I've outlined in this weekend's report I think gold likely has one more move to new highs before the D-wave begins.

However the action in the dollar and silver this week has probably taken the parabolic phase of this C-wave off the table. Rather than the normal sharp spike up it appears that this C-wave is going to end with a more modest move than prior C-waves. That being said it did last much longer and gain just as much above the prior C-wave top as any other C-wave. So in terms of duration and magnitude this C-wave has fulfilled every expectation.

Silver Investors Shock and Horror, Where Next? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver newbies discovered to their shock and horror last week that silver can actually go down as well as up, and even worse, that it drops a lot faster than it goes up. We were partly fooled ourselves last week by the seemingly bullish COT figures, but not to the extent that it stopped us implementing protection in the form of Puts, or Calls in silver bear ETFs such as ZSL.

Gold Shows Relative Strength, Especially Against the Silver Meltdown / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold's reaction last week was quite modest, given what happened elsewhere, especially to silver, and with the benefit of hindsight it is quite clear that it was a good point for it to react as it had the Friday before risen to become critically overbought on its short-term oscillators.

Speculation Does Not Explain High Crude Oil and Gasoline Prices? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWTI (West Texas Intermediate) Crude Oil futures traded at its lowest in almost two months in New York on Thursday, May 5 in its biggest selloff in two years, plunging 8.6% on the day to below the $100 mark (Fig. 1).  Brent crude on ICE also dropped as much as $12.17, or 10%, which was the largest in percentage terms not seen since the Lehman Brothers financial crisis, and the largest ever in absolute terms, according to FT.

Gold Long-term Long Way From a Bearish Reversal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDarn, missed it by $2.40.  My long term projection of $1575 was exceeded by $2.40.  Oh well, better luck next time.  Now what?  There was a lot of damage done this past week and it may take time to fully recover.  However, anyone who thinks that the US $ is still not in deep trouble reflecting in higher gold prices sometimes ahead is not looking at things realistically.

Gold and Silver Bullish Arugments / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis headline-charged first week of May has been dominated by the announced death of Osama Bin Laden, a historic 5-cent retreat in the euro and the greatest weekly decline in silver. But the week could have witnessed a positive transition (another one) in favour of precious metals. Here is why;

Silver Takes it on the Chin / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: John_Browne

This week saw the type of downside volatility in the precious metals market that will be remembered for years to come. For those of us who have been long gold, and silver in particular, the memories will not be pleasant. While many had been expecting a pullback in silver, when the violence did come it was nevertheless shocking. Silver shed one third of its value in less than one week. And while gold was pulled down by the general sell off in all commodities (oil, copper, coffee, etc.) the yellow metal shed only 6.5% during the carnage. Those mild losses should remind us that gold is not just another commodity, but has monetary qualities that tend to smooth out volatility. But will silver survive the vicious downturn?

Understanding The Yuan, U.S. Dollar Relationship To Gold, Silver And Commodities / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn early January of 2011, a top secret candlelight dinner was held at the White House. There was no fanfare and meager publicity. Present were the industrial, military and governmental heads of both China and the United States. Our government had just digested the failures of Lehman Brothers, AIG and other corporate icons by creating massive bailouts and running up trillion dollar budgetary deficits.

Silver in Freefall, What's Next? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver was one of the top priorities for many of precious metal traders until last week. However, silver market witnessed a dramatic turbulence in recent days. Let’s examine what has happened in silver market, in detail. Two weeks of gains for silver were erased in only 11 minutes this Monday as markets opened for electronic trading in Asia with prices falling as much as 12 per cent in the session. Spot gold fell 2.2% in 40 minutes. On Wednesday prices took another hit on a newspaper report that high-profile investors, including George Soros’ hedge fund, have sold precious metals. Silver for July delivery closed lower by 7.5%, at $39.39 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York

Gold and Silver Bloodbath Prompts Indian and Chinese Buying / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE TRADERS looking to buy gold saw Dollar prices whip in a $10 range on Friday in London, heading into the weekend at $1488 per ounce – 5.5% below Monday's record-high spike– as European equities and global commodities stemmed their losses.

Silver bullion also rallied, bouncing from a drop below $34 per ounce but suffering its fifth daily plunge in a row, fully 31% below last Thursday's three-decade high.

Why Copper is in a Long-Term Bull Market / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: With metals and commodities on a long-term bull-market run, investors have recently turned their attention to copper.

The red metal's price recently has fallen due to mixed economic data. Copper's use as an industrial metal - it's widely used in buildings, electronics, appliances and automobiles - makes it sensitive to economic growth prospects.

Gold and the U.S. Dollar  / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: John_Hampson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn April 25th I stated that I would not be taking partial profits on silver as I anticipated gold had not yet peaked and would reach a daily RSI reading of over 80 before doing so, in line with historical peaks. Well, the latter proved correct as gold moved higher to print a daily RSI of 82 on April 28th, but by that time the relationship between the two precious metals had broken down and silver was already in retreat. So, opportunity missed on silver to part-sell higher and part-buy-back-in lower, but I am now turning my attention to the opportunity of adding more at lower prices in the precious metals complex as we press on towards the secular peak around 2013.

Today’s Silver Scandal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Under-30 silver traders weren’t alive to see the billionaire Hunt Brothers bankrupted by silver trades, and those under-45 years old probably never read about it. The Hunts’ silver debacle occurred after the “soybean caper,” but before the CFTC fined them $500,000 in a July 1981 out of court settlement for blatant violation of commodities laws in their attempt to corner beans. The Hunts had borrowed money to buy silver and leveraged themselves in silver futures in an attempt to corner the market.
