Turning up the Heat on Coal Investing / Commodities / Coal

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOpponents of coal use are turning up the heat. This week, protests turned violent against a coal-fired plant being built in North Carolina by a unit of DUKE ENERGY.

Eight demonstrators from a group called “Rising Tide” were arrested after chaining themselves to construction equipment at the Cliffside facility. Others were stunned with Tasers and charged with trespassing, as police cleared the facility so work could resume.

Gold Correction Presents Opportunity for Investors to Accumulate Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo sets of forces work on market prices. Internal factors, or market's technical conditions, can in some periods dominate all others. Second set of forces are fundamental factors. Latter is that which is happening in world that might influence market. The much enjoyed rally from last summer's lows to the joyous move above US$1,000 was driven by latter. Investors wanted to protect their purchasing power from collapse of purveyors of paper assets. Internal factors seem now to be more important at the present time.

Gold Little Moved by IMF's Planned Sale Inside Existing Central-Bank Quotas / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT MARKET GOLD PRICES slipped south of an 0.8% trading range as the US open drew near on Tuesday, falling to $915 per ounce – a little more than $1 higher for the week so far – after the International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved a decision to start selling 400 tonnes of its bullion reserve.

Crude oil dipped 0.3% to $108.74 per barrel; Treasury yields ticked lower as bond prices rose; world stock markets fell around 1% across the board.

Silver Expected to Hold Support for Resumption of Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Although silver dropped back quite sharply last week as expected, in tune with gold, it was interesting to observe that the decline halted EXACTLY at its channel support line shown on our 1-year chart, and that it did not drop below its mid-March low on a closing basis. These are signs that it may just have bottomed, especially as it is now noticeably outperforming gold. What this means is that even if gold goes on to drop towards our intermediate maximum downside target in the $830 - $850 zone, silver may not react much further and might hold above last week's low. Traders should be remain aware of this and depending on how it pans out in the near future could aim to buy close to last week's lows with a tight stop, possibly re-entering the position in the event of being shaken out by a short-lived drop to lower levels, on subsequent strength.

Gold Correction Targeting Move to $850-$830 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold's uptrend channel from its August low failed last week as predicted, leading to an immediate plunge to $875, from which point it bounced. The failure of the uptrend and the drop well below the 50-day moving average, now way above the 200-day, are events that together typically lead to a prolonged period of consolidation/reaction. This fits with the fundamentals where there is likely to be a significant easing of concerns about the potential insolvency of major banking and mortgage corporations and institutions as the US Fed and Treasury organize an effective taxpayer funded bailout to get them off the hook. Even though the implications of this are hyperinflationary, the general relief resulting from the aversion of immediate crisis is likely to fuel a strong rally in the broad stockmarket, as already set out in detail last week on www.clivemaund.com

Gold Correction or Price Collapse? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Conduct your victory as a funeral - Tao Te Ching , Lao-tzu

Gold's recent sell-off from a high of $1033 has sent once jubilant gold investors to the sidelines to reassess gold's present malaise. Rest assured, gold is going higher, much higher. While there will be corrections along the way, gold will someday break out and explode upwards towards yet to be reached heights.

Gold and Silver Trend Still Unstable / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“With a potential negative crossover in the MACD possible for next week, gold could face increased selling pressure if it cannot clear the 5-week sma in short order. The long term prospects for precious metals continue to be favorable, but a little patience now could prevent a lot of frustration later.” ~ Precious Points: Dear Prudence, March 29, 2008

Gold Lower Highs and Lows Signals Bearish Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough the week started horrible it ended on an up note. Now the question is, “will the up note continue”? The step manner of the recent decline should be fodder for Elliott Wave analysts but I'll just keep it simple.

GOLD : LONG TERM
Well, the long term P&F chart has been bullish for some time now and finally is in a precarious position. It has not yet given a reversal signal to the bear but is getting close. For those of you who do not know my criteria for the issuance of a P&F reversal signal it's quite simple. In this case, to give a bear signal the chart must break below the established up trend line and below two previous lows. Well, it had broken below two previous lows earlier (at $900) but had not moved below the up trend line.

Elliott Wave on Crude Oil and the US Dollar / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dan_Stinson

Short Term Forecast
The USD and Crude appear to be in triangle patterns, currently in wave (D). (The Euro also appears as a triangle in wave (D).)
The action has been very corrective for the USD and Crude indicating that a brief new high for Crude and a brief new low for the USD is expected. We can confirm that a triangle pattern is in play if we see a bounce off the trendlines at the wave (D) intercepts.

Gold and Silver Set to Soar in Euros! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe focus in the gold market has always been on the $ price of gold and yet we have ample evidence of why we should not price gold in the US $, just as the oil price should not be priced in the US $. The fall of the $ has clouded the state of the global economy, its monetary system, as well as most of its markets. The gold and silver price has moved fairly closely with the € in the opposite direction to the $. But should it be attached so faithfully to the €?

HUI Gold Bugs Stock Index Big Daily Moves Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor precious-metals stock traders, weathering outsized volatility is a fact of life. Yet again over the last few weeks this truth was really driven home. The flagship HUI gold-stock index experienced some neck-snapping swings. And this generated much angst for those not yet steeled against such extreme volatility.

While long-term investors shouldn't care one bit, big swings can be very perilous for speculators. These big daily moves tend to generate intense levels of greed or fear. And these emotions are the mortal enemies of all speculators, the primary challenge that must be overcome if one is to succeed in trading.

Gold Prices Wrong-Footed as US Payrolls Sink / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES dipped, bounced and then fell back again from a four-day high early Friday on news that US job losses exceeded expectations last month.

Non-Farm Payrolls for March showed a loss of 80,000 jobs vs. Wall Street forecasts of 50,000 cuts. Even the ever-bearish Briefing.com had penciled in only a 70,000 fall.

We have been aware for some considerable time that Precious Metals stocks have been woefully underperforming gold and silver, a point made clear by Mr Bob Moriarty of www.321gold.com in his recent article Buy with both hands , but were not minded to go long because our research indicated that another heavy decline in gold and silver was imminent, which is what we have just seen.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD gave back an overnight rally to $905 per ounce early in London on Thursday, slipping $10 per ounce as the US open drew near.

Government debt prices ticked higher, pushing US bond yields further below the rate of inflation, as Asian stock markets closed higher but Wall Street futures pointed lower after US Treasury secretary Hank Paulson finally admitted that "we need to have this correction."
