Crude Oil Forecast 2009- Time to Buy? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo one could have imagined a little over 4 months ago with crude oil trading at $147, that crude oil would have crashed by 70% and be threatening to break below $40 so soon. Therefore this analysis seeks to to evaluate the prospects for crude oils future trend over the next 12months in determining whether crude oil today is a good buy or not.

Backwardization Of Gold And The Upwardization Of Gold And Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Darryl_R_Schoon


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSystemic crises are caused by the inability of systems to respond to stress. When systems can no longer adequately respond, systemic collapse ensues. We are currently witness to the end of a system of paper money based on credit and debt, a system now in the final stages of collapse.

Gold Bullish Breakout Takes a Bearish Knock / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOkay. So maybe we're not yet in a roaring new bull market. The next level to watch would be the $700 level, if it gets that low.

GOLD LONG TERM - It's instructive to every once in a while take a look at a long term chart to see where we came from and maybe get a better idea as to where we might be going. I have two long term charts (other than P&F) that I usually show. This is my normal chart, one that I use in my weekly analysis. The other one differs in that it is more of a very long term chart and includes longer term indicators and moving averages.

Taking Physical Delivery of Silver and Gold from COMEX / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Memorable Delivery Experience - For those who remember, I wrote a letter asking about taking delivery from the COMEX. Well I would like to tell you about a very educational experience.

Recently, we took a delivery from the COMEX. The process was a bit cumbersome but very enlightening. First, I would like to say that the process of dealing with the custodians was very professional. However, let me begin my story of amazement.

Gold Red Alert- Gold Price Backwardation first time in History! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDecember 2, 2008, was a landmark in the saga of the collapsing international monetary system, yet it did not deserve to be reported in the press: gold went to backwardation for the first time ever in history. The facts are as follows: on December 2nd, at the Comex in New York, December gold futures (last delivery: December 31) were quoted at 1.98% discount to spot, while February gold futures (last delivery: February 27, 2009) were quoted at 0.14% discount to spot. (All percentages annualized.) The condition got worse on December 3rd, when the corresponding figures were 2% and 0.29%. This means that the gold basis has turned negative, and the condition of backwardation persisted for at least 48 hours. I am writing this in the wee hours of December 4th, when trading of gold futures has not yet started in New York.

Central Banks Gold Reserve Actions Key to Gold Price Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom 1980 right through to 1999, the gold market had the possibility of enormous central bank gold sales hanging over the gold market.   Central banks did nothing to remove this impression but led the market to believe that it was likely.   Their purpose was to ensure gold did not challenge the paper money markets.   In 1971, President Nixon had cut the link between gold and money but removed the ability of U.S. $ holders to change their dollars into gold.   This left the $ and all other currencies without any backing except the promise from central banks to change paper dollars into paper dollars.   This would not have worked nearly so well had the U.S. not had the power to ensure that the oil market was bound to use only U.S. dollars as payment for oil.

Real Interest Rates and the Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's been a tough year for gold investors. Instead of soaring during the great fear and uncertainty of the global financial panic as most gold investors expected, gold got caught up in the selling. Thus it is down 7.3% year-to-date. This is far-better performance than virtually everything else, especially the S&P 500's 40.7% YTD loss. Nevertheless, the lack of a flight to gold in such dire conditions remains disappointing.

Crude Oil Closing in on $40 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Oil is closing in on $40.00 and perhaps on the way to $37.50 amidst an increasingly acute oversold condition. The trendline created by connecting the two major rally peaks between September 2000 ($37.89) and February 2003 ($39.99) cuts across the price axis at 46.00-43.50.

Gold Slumps on Half a Million U.S. Job Losses / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD gave back a tepid rally early in London on Friday before slumping to fresh two-week lows at $750 an ounce on news of a huge jump in US unemployment.

More than half-a-million Americans lost their jobs last month, reported the Bureau of Labor Studies. Wall Street analysts had been expecting 325,000 job losses.

Euro Rockets and U.S. Dollar Pops Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The upside reversal in EURUSD today has popped the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) to an intraday high at 77.63, which if nothing else has put some distance between the price structure and key near-term support at the December low of 75.10/05. Prices have pulled back to 75.88 even though EURUSD has held its gains, which means that gold prices remain heavily influenced by the continual selling pressure across the commodity complex in general -- and in oil, in particular. Oil prices have plunged to new lows at $44.52, the lowest level since February 2005 and at the top of a support band that stretches across major highs going back to September 2000.

Gold Unmoved by Historic Interest Rate Cuts in Europe / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD Gold Prices held in a tight $10 range in Asia and London on Thursday, unmoved by historic interest-rate cuts across Europe that buoyed French and German equities as returns-to-cash sank.

The European Central Bank (ECB) lopped 75-basis points off the cost of borrowing Euros, but held above the previous 2003 low of 2.0%, with its largest ever one-day reduction.

Gold Market "Illiquid" as Zero Interest Rates Loom / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD for physical delivery slipped back against the Dollar, Euro and Yen early Wednesday in London, but recovered two-thirds of this week's 3.5% drop for UK investors as the Pound tumbled again on the foreign exchanges.

On the stock market, Wall Street's strong overnight finish faded in Asia and left European bourses almost 1.5% lower by lunchtime.

Stock Market and Commodities Will Recover; Economic Crisis Far from Over / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs SilverStrategies.com editor Sean Rakhimov tells us in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, the economic crisis may go on for a generation but the market is a separate animal that will stir back to life sooner. He expects physical gold and silver to lead the parade, with base metals lagging 12-18 months behind, followed by share price recovery for the majors and on down the line. When picking stocks to buy now, he says investors have to decide for themselves whether a company will survive the washout; it may be tough going from here to there, but sticking with survivors should prove beneficial in the long run.

Why Investors Pay High Silver Premiums? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was checking out a new facility by Eric LeMaire which lists the latest eBay prices for gold and silver as well as some common numismaticals from decades past. You can see the statistics at this link . What struck me were the huge premiums that silver investors are prepared to pay for one ounce coins right up to 100 oz bars. At a glance I could see an average premium of 124% for American Silver Eagles, 164% for Kookaburras and 105% for Maples. More sane premiums can be seen on the 100 oz at 35% which is nevertheless still a hefty premium compared to how much one may pay for other asset classes.

Comex Gold Shock and Awe / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis past Friday, Nov. 28, 2008, was first notice day for delivery of the December COMEX [a division of NYMEX] gold and silver futures contracts which trade on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The chart appended below shows that on Friday, 8,600 gold futures contracts @ 100 ounces per contract [and 3,040 silver futures contracts @ 5,000 ounces per contract] were delivered. To try to give some perspective to these numbers the previous delivery month for gold futures was October, 2008 when there were 11,554 deliveries for the entire month – a “big” number by historical standards.
