The Return of the Gold Standard After 36 Years / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Two legs bad, four legs good!”
There were two main direct assaults on the gold standard by the American government: the first on the watch of a Democratic president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, when the U.S. defaulted on its domestic gold obligations in 1933; the second on the watch of a Republican president, Richard Nixon, when the U.S. defaulted on its international gold obligations in 1971. In each case, the gold standard struck back.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF PHYSICAL GOLD BULLION bounced from its third drop to $880 in three days early Thursday, recording a London Fix of $889 per ounce as Asian stock markets closed lower for the 11th time in 17 sessions.

Crude oil slid 2% to $103 per barrel, while US Treasury bonds rose, pushing the annualized yield offered by 3-month notes down to 0.45%.

Gold Physical Demand Surges on Inflation and Systemic Risk / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was flat while silver rose yesterday ( gold closed at $ 887.70 up 90 cents while silver closed at $13.37 up 25 cents ) as gold continued to consolidate near eight week highs . The COMEX October gold contract expires later today and there are significant levels of open interest between $890 and $910 which may see bullion constrained until the contract expires whereupon we may see further moves to the upside. $950/oz remains a realistic target by the end of the month.

Building Bullish Coil-Type Pattern for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Since last Thursday's high, the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) has carved out a series of higher lows on pullbacks, juxtaposed against lower highs on rallies, which has carved out a coil-type of near-term pattern. To the extent that pullback low at 86.72 continues to contain any forthcoming weakness, the current coil parameters will remain intact and call for an approaching thrust to the upside that has the potential to propel the GLD to 92.50-93.00. However, a downside violation of 86.72 will morph the current coil pattern into some other form -- perhaps a coil with different (wider) coordinates? In any case, for the time being the "original" coil pattern remains intact and continues to govern my very near-term analysis.

Mega Bailout Extremely Bullish for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Treasury Secretary Paulson and Congress are hammering out details of the government's rescue plan for financial institutions, and we don't know what final impact it will have on the debt crisis. But I can tell you one thing — it's going to drive gold prices higher.

In this plan, the government is squirting out hundreds of billions of dollars through a fire hose. That is inherently inflationary and should pump up the price of gold.

Gold's Strongly Bullish Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold and silver fell yesterday ( both by about 2% ) on profit taking before rallying again in after hours trading and then falling in Asia . Volatility remains at a fever pitch in all markets. Gold remains in a range between $850/oz and $910/oz and may need further consolidation at these levels prior to further gains.

Gold Bull Market Trend Forecast / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLeaving aside the historic credit crisis events of last week to approach the Gold market on a purely technical basis following the breakout above $850 last week. This article therefore is an update to my existing series of analysis of the last 6 months which has been consistently bearish of Gold (articles archive) during which time Gold has witnessed a decline from $1033 in March to $740 earlier this month.

Nadeem: Personal Thoughts on Gold and a Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Brian_Bloom

Hi Nadeem,

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI commend you for your courage and integrity in publishing that with which you disagree.  There are some editors of some web sites who haven't been behaving like you have.

Of course, you may be right that the gold price is positioning to explode upwards and I may be excessively conservative – but here is a chart of the US Dollar reproduced from an article by Clive Maund, for whom I have enormous respect as a technical analyst.

Archer Daniels Midland to Lead Agricultural Commodities Higher? / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleArcher Daniels Midland Co. (NYSE: ADM) continues to act well -- as a proxy for an extremely oversold and battered agricultural commodity complex. Although the DBA (PowerShares DB Agricultural Commodity ETF) is pulling back today, ADM is doing the opposite. It has hurdled near-term resistance at 24.00/05, and followed through to 24.64 so far this morning. My next upside target is 25.30/50, on the way to 26.00. Only a decline that breaks and sustains beneath 23.90 will begin to compromise today's upside breakout, while a decline that breaks 23.40 will invalidate the breakout altogether.

Peak Oil is Here Now / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Submissions

The late A. M. Samsam Bakhtiari was quoted in MoneyWeek in 2006: “The fact of being in 'Post-Peak' will bring about explosive disruptions that we know little about and which are extremely difficult to foresee. And the shock waves from these explosions rippling throughout the financial and industrial infrastructure could have myriad unintended consequences for which we have no precedent and little experience. Thus, in the face of Peak Oil and its multiple consequences, which are bound to impact upon almost all aspects of our human standards of life, it seems imperative to get prepared to face all the inevitable shock waves resulting from that. Preparation should be carried out on individual, familial, societal, and national levels as soon as possible.”

Gold Price Forecast to March 2009 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are the government, we're here to help. I believe the only help the government gave us last week was pushing gold prices higher. During last week's massive bailout and intervention in the credit markets one of the few markets to close higher for the week was gold. This tells you a tremendous amount about how traders are thinking about the future.

A Dangerous and Deceptive Gold Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor some months, this analyst has been urging readers to focus more on capital preservation than on capital growth. This is not as simple a concept as it seems.

For example, it is “obvious” – to those who have no faith in the US economy and/or the US Dollar – that gold is one place where the prudent investor should be invested.

Precious Metals Surge on Prospects of $1 Trillion US Budget Deficit / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold and silver surged  again yesterday (up  5 % and  nearly 8 % respectively) as the  serious inflationary consequences of the Treasury's unprecedented plan to buy up at least $700 billion of toxic assets was realised.  Gold surged from $861.40  to close over $900/oz but has since given up some of its gains, likely on profit taking.

Crude Oil Explodes Higher to $130 Illustrating Irrational Markets / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial markets being hit by ever larger and more volatile waves of panic today saw crude oil surge from Fridays close of $102 to a high of $130, this is as a direct consequence of last weeks decision by the US governments decision to initially buy up $700 billion of bad bank debt that looks set to eventually run in the many trillions. The proposed plan is highly inflationary and hence scared capital is attempting to seek safe-havens.

Mounting Upward Pressure on Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The only thing my work is telling me for certain in the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) is that the upmove off of the 9/11 low at 72.51 needs a new high (above the 9/15 high at 90.78) prior to completion. The only issue for me is whether the GLD will pull back towards 85.50-85.00 prior to the surge above 90.78, or if the price structure is in the thrust right now?

Ponzi Casino Capitalism Discredited- Risk of Global Monetary Crisis / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold and silver surged last week (up 13% and 15% respectively) as the financial crisis deepened considerably and there was a realisation that the  " ponzi " casino capitalism of recent years has critically wounded the U.S. financial system and done serious damage to the global financial system. Gold surged from below $780/oz to close at $861.40 on Friday and has risen again in European trading today to over $882/oz.

Gold Extends Gains as Investors Seek Transparency of the Physical Metal / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

GOLD PRICES extended last week's 13% gain early Monday, nearing Wednesday's six-week high of $892 per ounce as the US Dollar tumbled on the foreign exchanges and world stock markets retreated from Friday's "big bail out" surge.

Pointing to the US Treasury's plans for a $700 billion "resolution trust" for toxic mortgage-backed securities, "the US Dollar's response last week was further depreciation," notes Walter de Wet at Standard Bank.

Silver Is the ONLY Asset that Is NOT Someone Else's Liability / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Morgan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore sending me an e-mail telling me I am wrong, let me admit it!! I am WRONG -- silver is not the only asset that is not someone else's liability. But some of the staunchest "Gold Bugs" have it wrong and insist that gold is the only asset. In fact, fully-owned lumber or land or even an apple orchard are assets, and again, if owned outright would be an asset without a liability.
