Gold and Silver: Safe-havens in Troubled Times? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Each day we hear another piece of bad news on the banking front. It was called the sub-prime crisis, then it was the credit crunch; what we have in reality is a full blown banking crisis . Where in the past credit was easily given, full-blown consumer spending was encouraged and when it went too far, bankers saw asset values were dropping below loans against them and banks started to go bust. We are now seeing banks sued by the New York Attorney General. Hardly an environment in which confidence in the banking and financial systems can be retained?

Forecasting the Gold Stocks Bottom / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast Wednesday morning I wrote an article titled "Gold Stocks are Near a Key Bottom." When I put the article together I was looking for a bottom in gold stocks to put my own money to use in. Except for a small position, I have been out of them for awhile now and have been looking for a bottom in July/August to mark an end of their summer long consolidation phase.

Gold Heads for Traditional August Seasonal Low / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $899.20, down $9.10 and silver was down 37 cents to $17.13. Gold continued to sell off in Asia and in early European trading.

Gold has sold off on oil's steep falls and with sharp falls in many other commodity markets. The CRB Reuters Jefferies Commodity Index was down 3% yesterday, its largest one day sell off since last March (cocoa, natural gas and sugar were down sharply) and falling oil prices and a firmer dollar (back to 1.55 against the Euro) has led to gold's sell off.

Commodities Coup: Moscow Seizes Control of Agricultural Exports / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Russia has generated considerable political ill will throughout the former Soviet Union and even in Europe by renationalizing its energy sector – ultimately using such state-run ventures as OAO Gazprom and its resource-rich position as weapons of economic diplomacy.

Commodities Purge Offers Long-Term Investment Opportunity / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre we at the end of the commodity bull market or does this battered sector offer an attractive buying opportunity?

That's the question on the minds of everyone trying to navigate one of the most complex and volatile markets we've seen in years. The continuing economic slowdown (particularly at home and in other G-7 countries), combined with more than a year of bleak news from the financial sector, has left investors dazed and desperate.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD fell 1% from a three-session high early in London on Monday, dropping below $906 per ounce ahead of a busy week for central-bank decisions on interest rates.

Gold and Silver Outlook Remains Bearish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleZig, zag, but more zag than zig. Very strong support at the $850 level and that may be where gold is headed. Will it hold there? Most commentators suggest that a new bull move is eminent. That is not yet in the charts so we'll have to just keep on watching.

GOLD : LONG TERM
There has been no major reversal of long term type movement in the price of gold lately so no need for a long term chart yet. One can go back to the last long term P&F chart in the 18 July 2008 commentary and what we have since is a down direction of O's finishing below the up trend line but not yet going below two previous lows.

Get Ready for the Next Up Leg in Crude Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Oil has pulled back from its highs, and now analysts are lining up to say the top is in. I've been saying all along that volatility is the name of the game in oil this year. Let me tell you now that I think oil could go lower in the short term — maybe to $110 a barrel, $100 if we're really lucky. Then, hold on to your socks, because we're probably seeing the set-up for oil's next HUGE rally.

Why do I think crude oil may have some more work to do on the downside? Nothing goes up in a straight line, and crude's run has been phenomenal — it was trading at just $78 a barrel a year ago. A short-term pullback is a normal and necessary part of any bull market, and crude is no different.

Crude Oil Unable to Follow Through to the Upside / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Fits of volatility can come from 1) energy...2) financials...3) Gov't data... 4) geopolitics... take your pick, but just hope that we are not positioned opposite of the directional spike! Let's have a look at crude oil...

I do not know what to make of the enclosed hourly chart of oil, which shows this morning's spike from $122.10 to $128.60 (+5%) in a matter of minutes! The really interesting aspect of the price action, through, is its inability to follow through to the upside after hurdling yesterday's spike high at $127.89.

Base Metals Bull Markets Impacted by LME Stockpiles / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the base metals bulls began in 2003, few could fathom the wild ride ahead. Fundamentals indeed supported steadily rising prices, but the massive parabolas that unfolded between 2005 and 2007 were amazing to behold. From trough to peak copper, zinc, nickel, lead, and aluminum skyrocketed 475%, 523%, 650%, 829%, and 137% respectively.

This rise of the base metals not only represented yet another powerful breakout within the commodities sector, but a universal acceptance that a global secular commodities bull was upon us. With oil and gold already paving the way, the economic imbalances unfolding in the indispensable metals used in the production of everything structural and mechanical was eye-opening.

What Inflated the Commodities Bubble? / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Salman_Khan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude Oil has corrected over 15% from the top. Gold, Silver, Copper, Wheat and other commodities too have retreated from their respective highs. The heavy selling witnessed in last few days, has raised concerns that the air is leaking from the Commodity bubble and that a multiyear bull market might end soon. It has been pretty well established of late, that the commodity market has been exhibiting many of the characteristics of a bubble. Thus, we may be very well at the beginning of a bursting asset bubble.

Gold Gains on US Stagflationary Economic Slowdown / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES added to an overnight bounce at the New York opening on Thursday, rising above $915 per ounce on news of sharply higher US inflation and a slowing economy.

Gold had earlier recorded an AM Fix here in London of $912 per ounce – more than 2.1% above yesterday's five-week low – as crude oil slipped and the US Dollar held steady on the forex market ahead of today's data.

Gold Hit by Bear Raid, Despite Real Inflation at 10% / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $903.00, down $14.00 but silver was up 5 cents to $17.35 . After sharp falls in early trading in the COMEX yesterday (some of which was due to large stop loss sell orders being triggered around the $900 mark) gold rose to close only down some 1.5% on the day. Silver in similar volatile trading surged from interday lows to close higher. The rally continued in electronic trading and in Asian and early European trading.

Gold Stocks Head for Final Bottom Before Huge Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI believe the next few days are going to be key days for gold stocks just as May was a key time for the S&P 500 and the broad market. If you were following me then you'll know that I took short positions against the general market back in May. However I did not short at the exact top. In fact I got in a little early and let the S&P 500 go up a percent above my entry point. I was convinced when I got in that the market was about to make a critical top - one that would last for the rest of the year - but I wasn't sure at the exact price or moment that it would come. I was only certain that it was coming within a week, so I decided to just start to build a position. Of course it worked fantastic as the market has fallen apart since then.

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $91.00,  down $10.70 and silver was  down 10cents to $17.30. Gold rose slightly in Asian trading before falling.  It  is down again in early trading in Europe .

Slightly lower oil prices after yesterday's sharp falls are contributing to gold's further correction.
