Why Gold Price Has Fallen Despite Record Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Caggeso writes: Having spawned the worst market for stocks since the Great Depression, the global financial crisis is forcing investors to re-examine a number of long-held beliefs. Gold bugs, for instance, have been left to wonder just how gold prices could backpedal in the face of all-time-record demand.

Gold demand did increase – in fact, by a record 45% from the second quarter to the third.

Silvers Brutal Downtrend Has Run its Course? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven though the brutal downtrend in silver that has slashed its price by about 60% from last July remains in force, there are several important signs that it has probably run its course, and that silver is now basing ahead of renewed advance. On the 6-month chart we can see that even though silver plumbed new lows late in October by a sizeable margin, the MACD indicator bottomed way above its August and September lows, showing that downside momentum was decelerating, and it continued to decelerate with the low last week, when the MACD indicator hardly dropped. The behaviour of this indicator relative to price in the recent past is typical of a bottom.

Gold Builds Support as the U.S. Dollar Hits Resistance / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has remained in a narrowing trading range since the last update late in October, which is looking increasingly like an intermediate base area that will lead to a significant advance. In the last update a relief rally was predicted on the basis that the preceding steep downtrend had exhausted itself, and this is what we saw, although it didn't get very far. About a week ago gold looked like it may be forming a Pennant, implying a drop to new lows, but the lack of follow through on last week's decline and subsequent partial recovery has resulted in the pattern opening out into a Triangle, which is increasing the chances of an upside breakout.

Gold and Silver Obvious Price Maniupulation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Richard_J_Greene

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmazingly, while gold and other commodity related stocks continued to be sold off to levels that are at deep discounts to their intrinsic value in October, gold continued to break to new all time highs in most major currencies. On October 9th and 10th gold recorded new all time highs in many currencies including the Euro, the Australian Dollar, British Sterling, the Indian Rupee, the Russian Ruble, the South African Rand and many others. The Dow Jones Industrial Average Stock also recorded a multi decade low in terms of gold. Investors are getting a very much skewed view of gold's performance if they are viewing it in terms of the US Dollar or Yen. These are the two main currencies that have been used as cheap funding sources allowing speculators to take on incredible degrees of leverage to invest in higher yielding assets with much better fundamentals.

Current Commodities Price Deflation to be Followed by Massive Inflation Later / Commodities / Inflation

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global economy is declining. As a result, prices of important kinds of “stuff” is falling. Governments are pouring money onto the markets to solve a problem that may have been caused by easy money originally.

If you party too much and awake the next day with a hangover, taking a shot of alcohol may take the immediate pain away.  However, it only delays and probably increases the pain when you finally decide to stop drinking, or become so sick you can't drink any more. Taking that morning after drink is referred to as taking a “hair of the dog that bit you”.
