Washington Targets Commodity ETF's / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Ron_Rowland

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article When it comes to investing in commodities, the people I know have two opposite emotions — either obsessed or terrified.

I can see why. The commodity markets — contracts representing tangible goods like gold, oil, grains, etc — are known for sharp reversals and wild volatility. The potential profit can be enormous if your forecast is correct. If you’re wrong … let’s just say the results aren’t pretty.

Gold and Silver Price Forecast of $1,150 and $30 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Madison_Avenue_R

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLong Term: Madison Avenue Research Group's outlook for gold and silver is bullish. Our sentiments echo Peter Barnes, CEO of Silver Wheaton whom in a BNN interview on September 8, 2009 said "Over the next two or three years silver is going through USD$30/oz”. Barnes believes weakness in the US dollars will drive precious metal prices and excessive monetization will have a significant inflationary effect at some stage saying "it is only a matter of when".

Gold, Canary in the Coal Mine / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike a battering ram in a medieval siege, gold keeps hammering away at the gate. For the third time in less than twelve months, the yellow metal is once again crashing into the $1,000 per ounce level. As of press time, it looks like gold will close above that level today and will set a new record in the process. Even if the breach is fleeting, who can doubt that it will mount another assault soon? In the meantime, there is no shortage of market analysts who are not buying gold while questioning the motives of those who are. Although they offer a variety of strained reasons, they nearly all agree that it has nothing to do with inflation, which is nearly universally considered dead and buried. As a self-confessed gold bug, I can assure all that inflation is the only reason I buy gold. And recently, I'm buying a lot.

U.S. Dollar Wanes, Gold Shines / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The dollar continues to press to marginally lower lows this morning and could be heading for a test of its year-ago low at 75.89. Meanwhile, gold prices have climbed above Tuesday’s high at $1,008.30, which should trigger continuation towards a test of the all-time high at $1,033 thereafter on the way to $1100. Our SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) model portfolio position has benefited from the action.

Has Barrick Mining Been Barricked by the U.S.? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to an announcement dated September 8, 2009, Barrick is going to throw into the dustbin its long-standing hedge policy, and pay for buying back its hedge-book by diluting the value of its common stocks through issuing more than 81 million new shares, or about 10 percent of the outstanding. The so-called hedges of Barrick have been thoroughly discredited and will soon be history. So-called, because the long-term forward sales contracts in question that the parvenu gold miner has invented and flaunted are not proper hedges and never have been. They are a fraud. They are naked short positions pretending to be balanced by gold ore reserves in the moon (or on this earth which, for hedging purposes, is practically the same thing). Part of the newsworthy story, of course, is the fact that the hedge book of Barrick has been increasingly under water for some nine years now, threatening the unfriendly giant with drowning.

Gold Sees Further Profit Taking / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: GoldCore

Gold saw further profit taking yesterday and fell to support at $982/oz. Thereafter it staged an impressive rally and briefly broke back through $1000/oz. Currently, it has fallen just below this level but is constantly testing that mark and appears to be consolidating at the $1,000/oz mark. With the dollar under significant pressure, a test of new highs should be imminent.

Precious Metals, What Do I Do Now? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: David_Morgan

It seems more and more people are waking up to the fact that gold and silver are not only moving up but are also much safer investments currently than any other alternative. At the present time, I treat the commodity differently than I treat the underlining mining equities. As far as buying bullion or coins, basically I think investors should buy them at any time. Certainly you’re better off buying silver at $15.00 than you are if you’re buying it at $20.00, but the metals themselves, from a long-term perspective, will preserve your wealth and possibly multiply it. Many agree that the real metal is your core position. That is the investment that really counts the most.

Money Talks, Gold Shouts / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the second quarter of 2008, when it became clear that bankrupted financial institutions would be bailed out by the federal government, gold did a funny thing. In the wake of a financial crisis of that magnitude, one normally would have expected asset prices, including gold, to plummet. Most observers expected the metal to dip from the $800 level down to $600, or below. Instead, gold held up well during the teeth of the crisis, and has recently increased to just over $1,000.

Reasons for Major Gold Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore the Hat Trick Letter was launched, a little splash was made when a Jackass Nobody wrote “25 Reasons Why Gold Will Rise” in November 2002. It was so many years ago that the piece no longer appears in archives. The motive for the article was simple. Just too much pure nonsense and genuine rubbish had appeared in the financial press about why gold was rising. ‘THEY’ claimed the gold price was rising from MidEast tensions, from new global tensions due to a False Flag attack on New York City in broad daylight, and from other factors clearly irrelevant to gold. It was not disinformation so much as stark ignorance and stupidity, perhaps even compromised marketing from the fiat bowels on Wall Street. The crack analysts in financial circles overlooked the negative real interest rates offered by central banks, as the miniscule official rates were overwhelmed by price inflation, thus rendering gold a free pass profitable investment. Stupid inane mindless drivel continues to pour out today as to why gold has reached the $1000 level.
