Is Gold Crash Proof This Time Around? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI’ve been receiving quite a few emails regarding the topic of Gold and how it will perform if another Crash hits. The following are my thoughts on this matter.

The first thing that needs to be said is that IF we have another systemic meltdown like that of Autumn 2008, Gold will likely go down along with everything else. There are simply too many big players (hedge funds, investment banks, etc) with heavy exposure to Gold who would be forced to liquidate their positions during a systemic collapse.

Fiat Paper Covers Gold Rock / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvidenced by Tuesday’s drubbing of gold and silver into COMEX (paper market) options expiry for the metals, which is an all too common occurrence that goes unchecked by regulators, it’s apparent the banking cartel’s resolve regarding suppressing metal’s prices is particularly strong at present, with the tell sign here being generous numbers of put owners got paid – paid big time. If cartel members were the writers of these put contracts, such an outcome would be expensive, so it must be concluded the writers were likely hair-brained hedge fund managers, possibly goaded into these positions by cartel members. Then, it was easy for cartel members to sell gold down Tuesday as lower volumes associated with summer doldrums left few obstacles to overcome.

Dow and Gold Summer Doldrums / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Richard_Mills

Central banks money printing is out of control. The constant printing of all the world’s currencies is just another way for countries to default on their debt – the repayment of a creditor occurs using a currency whose purchasing power has been reduced. Gold’s price will continue, has to continue, too rise in value against all depreciating paper currencies

Golds and Junior Silver Mining Stocks Update / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI maintain two indices for premium subscribers so that we can better track the junior precious metals sector. These four charts should give you a better idea of the current state of the sector.

The first chart shows our junior gold index over the last year. The junior gold index consists of 25 companies, most of which are in the neighborhood of $100-$600 million in market cap. How a billion dollar company is a junior, is beyond me.

Gold Stocks on Summer Sale / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jason_Hamlin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has bounced back from the recent correction to reclaim the $1,200 level and looks poised to make new highs in the coming weeks. While the price of gold is just 5% from its all-time nominal high of $1,261, many of the best mining companies are 20% or more below their recent highs. If the next few months play out the way I expect, it could be a very profitable ride for those who establish positions ahead of the herd.

Gold Prepares To Make Yet Another All Time High / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe summer doldrums are normally a weak time for gold, with July and August historically being two of the worst months for the yellow metal. July followed this pattern with there being a great deal of weakness in the gold price. However gold prices have bounced back this month, with gold now only $60.00/oz off its high. We are not sure why so many investors believe all in the markets and general economy is well, when gold is a 5% from its all time high whilst the S&P 500 is 40% from its high.

Gold Recent Price Slide Presents Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"It's no longer just an energy market. It's no longer just a metals market. It's just one commodities market," says John Licata, chief commodity strategist at Blue Phoenix, Inc. John thinks that the lines between commodities will continue to blur as companies diversify their metals and minerals holdings. He also thinks gold will approach $1,375 by year-end, and that a major uranium producer will soon be snapped up by Asian interests. It's all in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report.

Why the Official Antipathy to Gold and Silver? The Second Oldest Profession / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery so often someone asks, 'Why do the government and the banks manipulate the price of gold and silver?'

There is a great deal of circumstantial evidence to support this, even some blatant quotes pertinent to the topic from the likes of Volcker, Greenspan, and Bank of England governor Eddie George. Of course it can all be denied. People can deny anything, even well known historical events with many witnesses, if it suits their bias and purposes.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal economic conditions are now favorable for gold as a safe-haven investment. The U.S., Western Europe and Japan are close to buckling under the weight of their sovereign debt loads, government budget deficits remain large and persistent and, as a result, faith in major paper currencies is low.

Gold and Failing Keynesian Dogma / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat Keynesian economic dogma has been a complete and utter failure is readily evident as we look around the world. For one, the U.S. economy will reenter recession in first of the new year as Obama Regime's tax increases crush the potential for economic growth. U.S. unemployment remains stubbornly above 9%. Rather than Keynesians surrendering as they should, they place the blame not on their policies but those advocating change. Cure the economic woes of today? Ban university tenure for Keynesian economists, retroactively!

Gold and Silver Huge Short Position / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jesse

There is a case to be made that world production is not the only issue, but the available supply is just as important, if not more.

In the case of gold, a relatively small portion of supply is consumed, as the bulk of it is held as jewelry and bullion. One might say that if the bullion banks get into a pinch, the central banks can bail them out by 'leasing' gold to them for sale. In fact there is quite a bit of circumstantial evidence that the central banks have been doing this for some time, and would be in serious difficulty if they faced external audits.

Gold Serious Negative Divergences Despite Recent Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

If the U.S. Dollar Were to Fall How Important is Gold to the States? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the demise of the Gold Standard, monetary authorities have tried as many ways as possible out there to sideline gold as part of the monetary system. Since the early eighties they have succeeded to some extent, but this was by discrediting it and by emphasizing the benefits of paper currencies. Paper money in a paper system was working very well and everybody felt that much more prosperous, so ignored gold's departure.

The Great American Collapse, The Gold Decade / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs gold hovers near $1,200 an ounce and pundits speculate about a 'gold bubble', it's important for investors to remember that a mere decade ago the picture was very different. In the year 2000, gold sat at an unimpressive annual average of $279 an ounce - a two-decade low. At that time, most analysts thought gold was finished as a monetary metal. They said its price would never recover and only kooks with tin hats would invest in it. I was one of the very few financial commentators publicly saying that gold was not only viable, but entering a long-term uptrend.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street started this week off with another “push-it-higher” party, as the babbling heads on TV trumpet the latest good earnings news. Respected analysts at Cabot Market Letter just said it’s “likely” the Dow could surge to 14,000 in 2011. Meanwhile, many Americans are left wondering: How can it be party time for Wall Street when it’s such hard times for the rest of us? Where’s the party for Main Street?

By: LiveCharts

The price of gold is currently (August 5) just below $1,195 after it briefly touched $1,200 on August 4th. Gold prices have been on a rebound after more than a $100 downward correction from the all-time high in late June of $1,261.

The gold spot rate hit $1,157 just over a week ago on July 28th. However, after hitting the nearly two-month low, the price of an ounce of gold has jumped nearly $40.
