What Do Precious Metal Investors to Do Now? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Investmentscore.com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConsider the following hypothetical scenario and typical investor conundrum: The price of precious metals is grinding higher, catching the attention of new investors to the sector. The price of silver and gold are well above their 50 and 200 day moving averages and many of these new investors seek opinions on how to proceed. Notice that most commentators are bullish, and price movements do not appear to have reached extreme levels in comparison to past price movements. But now what do you do? If an investor buys in now they risk a drop in the currently advancing price but if they wait they risk missing out on the next let up.

Uranium Stocks Frustrating Trend / Commodities / Uranium

By: Merv_Burak

1% here and 1% there but still we're not getting anywhere. It's a little frustrating waiting for some significant action but all we get is nibble, nibble. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index was up another 0.037 points or 1.05%. Looking at the chart that still hasn't gotten us where I would like to see the Index, that is, decisively through those resistance levels and on into new rally highs. But no, it's nibble, nibble. There were 25 winners on the day and 24 losers with one unchanged. You can't get much closer to a neutral day than that. Still no run-away winners (or losers).

Gold Accelerating Towards Blow off Top / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) ETF has accelerated into my preferred target zone at 95.00-96.50 for the conclusion of the current upleg that started earlier this week after testing the 92.00 area twice. Right now, the pattern and momentum work point higher -- towards the top of the Jan-Feb channel near 96.50, and if this advance follows the usual rules that govern price behavior in channel analysis, then the GLD likely will pop through the upper channel line (above 96.50) in a blow-off type of completion of the current upleg. At this juncture, only a decline that breaks below 94.50 will begin to neutralize additional upside expectations.

Gold: "Buy the Dips" Advised as Dollar Slides on Terrible US Economic Data / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF physical gold bullion spiked to $962.50 per ounce just ahead of the US open on Thursday, standing 1.5% higher for the week so far as European stock markets dropped another 1%.

Crude oil rose above $102 per barrel, while Wall Street futures slumped on the weakest GDP data since 2001. Initial US jobless claims for the week-ending last Friday came in 6.5% ahead of forecast.

Silver Now Outperforming Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

As readers may know, silver has put in a sterling performance this week and has outperformed gold into the bargain. The prediction that silver will eventually outperform gold as the precious metal bull market reaches a new zenith point is being fulfilled before our very eyes.

In my last article, I pointed out that the net short commercials may well begin to feel the heat and begin their third capitulation of this 5 year old silver bull market. Indeed, if they haven't began to cover at cents below $20 an ounce, the sense of urgency brought on by mounting financial losses must be as loud as a roaring silver bull bellowing right into their ear holes.

Gold Strong on Dollar Weakness Leading to Stagflationary Environment / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was up $12.50 to $958.70 per ounce in trading in New York yesterday and silver surged another 54 cents to $19.20 per ounce. In Asian and early European trading, gold and silver remain well bid and have consolidated near these new respective record and 27 year high levels.

Gold strengthened in British pounds and fell slightly in euros. The London AM Fix at 1030 GMT this morning was at $957.00, £483.09 and €634.07.

Did Your Analyst Keep You Invested In Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen prices rise exponentially, as they are doing now, the temptation is to take profits and wait for a pull-back. Especially when the analyst you happen to follow, tells you that gold and silver are ‘overbought'.

In November of 2007, while gold was trading at 804.00, I wrote an article titled: “Gold and Silver, prepare to back up the truck”. (Available in the archived section). At the time a lot of analysts were quoted as saying that gold was ‘overbought'.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Sean Brodrick writes: Two centuries ago, people in New England were harvesting a resource for practically nothing and selling it at a fat profit in such distant locales as Calcutta, Martinique and Havana.

As the wheel of history turns around, it may be time to start harvesting and selling that resource again.

Food Inflation Set to Rise Further and How Best to Invest in Agriculture / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere was a clear consensus emanating from the annual U.S.D.A. Agricultural Outlook Forum, which I attended in Arlington, Virginia last week: most in attendance believed that food prices will continue their assent of last year (4%) and perhaps rise by another 3.8%-4% in 2008. U.S. food price inflation will be the result of increasing cost pressures from higher agricultural input prices. These prices, in turn, are the result of strong global demand, continued weakness in the U.S. dollar, the push for renewable energy, low stock-to-use-ratios and global weather that has not been conducive to crop growth in certain regions.

Demand Building for Gold and Silver as Currency of Legal Tender for Merchant Services / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article" Gold & Silver Accepted Here"- The fact that euros are accepted by many stores in New York City has made the news lately and is well known in gold investor circles. It is yet another symptom of the ongoing demise of the US dollar. The good news for these New York City merchants - and for all others nationwide - is that gold and silver will not be far behind and offer far better advantages as dollar-alternatives.

You may think that honest-to-goodness currency demand for gold and silver is non-existent in the US and that this will remain so until the legal tender laws are repealed (as currently proposed by Representative Ron Paul's dual HR 42756 and HR 4683 approach) - but that is not necessarily true. Such demand will soon begin to build, regardless of Ron Paul's efforts in Congress - and it will take off very fast.

Crude Oil $100+ Price is Here to Stay / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA brief review of the driving factors pushing oil higher - Over the last year, as oil has advanced from US$50 to $100, there has been countless academic papers on why the worlds most heavily traded commodity will likely not increase much above US$70 to $80. The main rationale? Alternative energy sources (e.g., coal, biofuels, wind, solar and uranium) will fill the gap and keep oil at a more comfortable level well below the infamous US$100 mark.

New High for Gold on Euro Break Above $1.50 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF PHSYICAL gold bullion leapt to new record highs above $964.50 per ounce early in London on Wednesday, gaining more than 3.9% from Tuesday's low as European stock markets slipped back and the US Dollar slid towards new all-time lows on the currency markets.

Breaching $1.50 for the first time ever today, the European single currency has now gained 12.7% versus the Dollar since the US Federal Reserve began slashing its interest rates in Aug. 2007.

Gold Bull Market Continues On A Roll! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Vaughn

Gold continues to perform beyond all expectations. Many readers are angry because they believe gold is climbing too high too fast. Blame it ultimately on the US dollar. I believe Friday gold climbed as high as 950 before resting comfortably at 944 an ounce. What goes on here? Why does gold continue to climb like this? We are almost at 1,000 an ounce and gold shows no weakness.

Gold Investors Reluctance to Buy Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

This wonderful rally in Gold, largely driven by money chasing momentum, is generating a great deal of bravado. Coming sale of a significant amount of Gold by the IMF is scoffed at. Why all of a sudden did the G-7 agree to it? Is more to come? At the same time, US$ is feeling the wrath of momentum money as its value is trashed. “More Money” Misken at the Federal Reserve thinks only of benefits from lower U.S. interest rates, while ignoring the damage.

US Fed Fueling Hyper Inflationary Global Commodities Market Bubble / Commodities / Stagflation

By: Gary_Dorsch


Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Too much money, chasing too few commodities,” might be the best way to explain the historic rally that is underway in the global commodities markets. Central bankers in eighteen of the top-20 economies in the world have been expanding their money supplies at double digit rates for the past several years, trying to prevent their currencies from rising too quickly against the sickly US dollar.

Nowadays, fund managers are pouring billions of dollars into commodities across the board, as a hedge against the explosive growth of the world's money supply, competitive currency devaluations, and the negative interest rates engineered by central banks. To the chagrin of central bankers, much of new money pumped into the global markets, is also going into commodities, instead of the stock market.

Gold Bounces on US Wholesale Inflation Hitting 26 Year Highs / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES bounced from a four-session low at the London opening on Tuesday, recovering two-thirds of the week's 2.8% losses to date on news that producer-price inflation for US industry rose last month at a 26-year record clip.

Wholesale prices increased 1% in Jan. said the Labor Dept. just ahead of the Wall Street open, twice the pace expected by private economists. Now running at 7.4% year-on-year, wholesale price inflation was last seen at these levels in the fall of 1981.

IMF Proposed Gold Sale Looks Doubtful / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was down $7.30 to $937.40 per ounce in trading in New York on Friday but silver was up 10 cents to $18.08 per ounce. Gold continued to weaken in Asia but has strengthened somewhat in early European trading and is trading at $934.10 per ounce.

Another mooted IMF gold proposal (more below) may have led some weak longs to liquidate positions yesterday. But after recent week's surge in gold and last week's sharp (4.5%) increase in the price of gold, the market was overbought in the short term and ripe for a correction. It was interesting that silver has remained strong despite gold's less than 1% sell off.

Gold Stocks Potential Future Investment Opportunity / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI get more questions about gold than other single topic. The fascination for the "barbarous relic" among my readers is clear. This week in Outside the Box we take a look at the gold stocks and the potential future investment opportunity. David Galland of Casey Research provides an intriguing analysis of the gold market today. In particular, why have gold stocks lagged the rise in gold? This is the opposite of what orthodox gold investing strategy says should happen. And I happen to agree with David's rationale for the paradox and his contention that gold stocks are poised (finally!) for the same rise that their base metal brethren have seen.
