Traders Only– Prepare to SELL GOLD / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ronald_Rosen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs many of you know, I use many different methods to achieve my trading signals but one of the most important is the measurement of TIME. We have always had the quote from W.D. Gann as the banner on this newsletter, “Time is more important than price; when time is up price will reverse.”

As I have pointed out before, TIME can be measured in many ways. Sometimes I measure in trading days and sometimes it is in calendar days whilst other times I am measuring Fibonacci ratios of previous waves in time to give us projections for possible dates for change of direction.

Invest in Gold and Silver as Protect from US Economic Catastrophe / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Our nation may be on the cusp of economic catastrophe — call it a panic, a meltdown, an implosion; I don't care what you call it. But it's bad. And it's coming straight at you like a runaway bus.

In times of crisis, people naturally gravitate toward gold, because it's the one investment that can hold its value when the fertilizer hits the fan.

Greenspan Backs Gold as World Currency / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $977.10, up $5.00 and silver was down to $18.92, down 27 cents. Gold fell in Asia before rising in early European trading.

Gold rallied strongly in early trading yesterday on higher oil, a lower dollar and increasing macroeconomic and systemic risk prior to the sharp fall in oil prices (some $10 in a short period of time ) which led to a selloff in precious metals. Despite the sharp selloff in oil, gold again remained resilient and finished some 0.5% higher in New York. The sharp fall in the oil price was attributed to margin calls due to equity losses and to fears of demand destruction due to the slowing U.S. and international economies.

The Messiah & the P.O.W. & Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Well, what's gold doing right now? There are still very few who take the present financial situation serious enough to act on it. I believe gold hit 500 in 2005 and over 700 in 2006. Today it is well above 900. Anyone care out there?

A couple of years ago I was sitting in the barber's chair and chatting away. Yes, a real barber and not a “hair stylist.” Any way, right when a break came in my chatter the barber looked at me and said “too much information!” I guess the point is sometimes we say too much when we ought to keep our mouth shut. Last week I made a sarcastic remark about presidential elect Obama. What amazed me was how many folk do not recognize sarcastic humor when they hear it. And yes I am not afraid to say that I am not a supporter of Obama, but I still enjoy talking about the man because I find his rise to power amazing. Anyway, so much for that.

Crude Oil Parabolic Move Driven by Inflation Hedging that Could Unwind / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHaving turned bearish on crude oil during the run up to above $146, and without repeating recent analysis that in summary had an initial target for a decline to $135 and a secondary target of $110 on break of $135 amidst a background of a possible spike higher following an attack on Iran, which I concluded as a low probability event of less than 20%.

What is of critical importance is to remind oil investors waiting for a parabolic rise, that we are already well into a parabolic move in crude oil. Therefore waiting for a move to between $200 and $300 would be in addition to the existing parabolic move from $50 to $147 just a day ago.

Crude Oil and the 6 Year Cycle as Speculator Sentiment Reaches Extreme Highs / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn previous commentaries we took a close look at the attributes of the 6-year cycle, which is bottoming this summer. The 6-year cycle is a component of the famous 120-year Kress Cycle and when it bottoms it tends to have a pronounced effect on stock prices and often the economy.

Right now the 6-year cycle is the paramount consideration trumping all other factors in the financial markets, whether it be the credit crisis, rising food and fuel costs or anything else. For every cause must have an effect and when it comes to the markets it's the cycles that are the chief cause behind the effects we're seeing.

Investing in Oil to Beat Inflation / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to Washington , the official inflation rate is around 4.1%. At this point, I think it's obvious most consumers know this data is wrong. Of course some people accept anything Washington reports, especially the agenda-driven “experts” on television who bring in media hams as cheerleaders to spread the ludicrous propaganda of a strong economy.

You don't need a Ph.D in economics or finance to know that inflation is approaching levels similar to those seen in the 1970s. In fact, those who have been formally trained in these disciplines are more likely to miss what is really going on because they've been programmed to think that fancy math is always superior to common sense. But they often neglect to consider the fact that new standards are continuously being devised to hide the real data - from inflation and unemployment numbers to GDP and poverty statistics.

Silver Futures Market Exchange Rules Under an Emergency / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: David_Morgan

In last week's column I presented some fallacies that pertain to the silver market. The feedback I received was mixed; most was positive but some was negative, proclaiming that I was implying the "shorts" could not lose and investing in silver was almost hopeless.

This is not my studied position at all. In fact it has been my conviction from the time I began writing about the silver market that silver is one of the best investments to be made, from the year 2000 to present, and I still maintain that the physical silver and gold markets are the foundational investments that must be owned by any serious precious metals investor.

Inflation and Oil Ratio Bullish for Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't tell this to the price fixers though. Apparently it's fine and dandy to let all other ‘commodities' rise in allowing this inflation thingy blow-off, but not gold, and especially not silver since it's so easily controlled. What kind of a message would that send to the investment world? If silver were allowed to rise, well, then it wouldn't make a lot of sense for gold to be odd man out considering its vital role in the economy, that being the ultimate measure of currency. In fact, if other vital commodities are rising sharply, already it makes little sense gold has not risen further, especially with the world's present ‘reserve currency' the fiat dollar in decline. So again, it would be especially troubling if silver were to begin rising impulsively and gold was left behind from this perspective.

Tokyo Gold Breaks 25-Year High on Fannie-Freddie Bail Out / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD slipped 1% against the US Dollar at the London opening on Monday, giving back one-third of Friday's $23 surge as crude oil dropped and government bond prices fell.

Credit spreads – a measure of investor concern over the risk of default – also ticked lower after Sunday's promise of unlimited tax-funded support for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the $5 trillion US mortgage companies, from the Treasury in Washington .

Gold Major Breakout on Freddie & Fannie Catastrophe / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week both gold and silver staged important breakouts from base areas to commence major uptrends. This is a development that we had been expecting for quite some time. On the 1-year chart for gold we can see how it first broke out from the 3-arc Fan Correction that we earlier delineated with the biggest one day rise for many years - itself a very bullish development. After that it reacted back from the clear line of resistance dating back to late March that marked the top of the base area. This reaction served to ease the short-term overbought condition. Then late last week it blasted through the resistance, this move synchronising with a breakdown by the dollar in response to the Fannie - Freddie catastrophe.

How to Use Gold to Protect Your Portfolio and Profit / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: One of the things people don't understand about buying gold for diversification is that it doesn't work all the time.

It works over time. That means that you can't simply switch from one asset class to another when the going gets tough and expect miracles. Nor can you expect higher returns.
