Egg Prices Hit New Highs as China and India Change Agri-Foods Dynamics / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Easter Bunny may have serious trouble making deliveries this month. Changing fundamentals in the Agri-Food sector have pushed the price of eggs up dramatically. Easter Bunny might not be able to afford as many eggs this year. This week's graph is of cash price of a dozen eggs. While headlines may be filled with dramatic price move in wheat, eggs have been doing quite nicely. After touching about $0.63 per dozen earlier this year, that price moved to almost $1.49 six months later.

Gold Makes Near Term Peak / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In our 10 am posting to subscribers yesterday we discussed the powerful up-gap opening in the streetTRACKS Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) and the fact that the GLD had hurdled the resistance line of its multi-month bullish price channel. We wrote: "This is very interesting action in the GLD -- to see if the up-gap up here can be preserved…[and] to see if the GLD can hold above its upper channel line (96.67) because usually a thrust above the upper channel concludes the underlying upleg."

Gold Long-term Elliott Wave Count Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have spent at least 15 hours trying to find symbols for gold on my data feed to no avail. I might have found one way to get it, but the cost for one single quote is not justifiable. As such, I subscribed to Stockcharts to obtain charts. They do not offer data far back enough to produce long-term charts, so what you see is what you get.

Silver Short-term Extremely Overbought Situation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past week or so we have been seeing the acceleration by silver that we expected following its anticipated breakout against the Euro and the Swiss France. However, coming on top of strong gains since the low last December, this has resulted in an extremely overbought condition developing.

Crude Oil Topping While Dow Transports Looks Bullish / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let's notice that from July 2007 into the third week of January, rising oil prices, as reflected by the US Oil Trust ETF (NYSE: USO), depressed prices of the DJ Transports, as reflected by the iShares DJ Transport ETF (AMEX: IYT). However, since late January, oil prices and the transports both generally have maintained an upward trajectory. Why? My sense is that the most recent upmove in oil from $70 to $82 in the USO (from $86 to $103 in nearby crude oil) reflects the final, speculative blow-off type move in oil prices -- the aftermath of a sideways congestion period, juxtaposed against a transportation index that is discounting improved economic conditions that should be forthcoming from an accommodative (soon to become a MORE accommodative) Fed.

Investors Dive into Commodities and Resources ...as a Safe Haven? / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Dr_William_R_Swagell

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“With credit and equity out of favour, investment managers ride the commodities price boom...International investment managers have dived into the commodity market to exploit sharp price rises across the board, leaving behind the troubled credit and equity markets to focus on the China-India boom story... ‘The other thing (is the) hedge funds and the commodity trade advisors who can go long and short' said Citi's global head of commodities Alan Heap. ‘They are covering their short positions very aggressively and that is fuelling the fire as well, particularly for copper.” Scott Murdoch, The Australian Feb 23-24, 2008.

IMF GOLD Sales Bonanza for Investors / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf history repeats itself, we will soon be recipients of the biggest windfall of the new millennia. Not since the Bank of England sold 400 tons of its gold in 1999 at the very bottom of the market have gold investors been presented with such good fortune. Ladies and gentlemen, get your pens and checkbooks ready.

Representatives of the world's industrialized nations, the G7, have recommended that the IMF sell 401 tons of its gold to help meet operating expenses. If the sale of IMF gold proceeds, gold investors should be prepared to buy as much as they can—and then some for this will one of the last opportunities to buy gold at current prices.

Gold Heading Towards Critically Overbought Territory / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith silver being in a critically overbought state and looking set to react very soon, we now have to “find reasons” for gold to react on its charts, since it is hardly likely that gold will continue higher while silver is reacting. Fortunately, if we look closely enough, it is not hard to find reasons for gold to react soon along with silver.

Gold Thrust to Break the Magic $1000 Number Imminent / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou can't argue with success. The thrust by gold to get to that magic $1000 number looks within the grasp. Who knows? Another week or two just might do it.

GOLD : LONG TERM
Last week I showed the long term P&F chart. With this past week's action another two Xs could be plotted on the chart. This week I show the Very Long Term chart, or what I refer to as a very long term. It is my weekly chart with a simple 52 week moving average line and a 52 week RSI. It provides another simple view of the long term trend and position of the gold price.

Gold and Silver Trend Recharged by US Dollar Weakness / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne week ago, my forecast did not come to pass for a euro currency sell off, and for a pound sterling sell off. Even the Aussie Dollar forecast of a sell off failed. In fact, in a convincing fashion, all three forecasts were shattered. What happened? Wrong read of the price pattern with indicators? Not really. Wrong assessment of high priority signals? Surely, yes. By that is meant, during a strong GOLD TREND, and WEAK USDOLLAR TREND, cyclical indicators tend to carry less importance in predictive power.

Precious Metals PGM Secular Bull Market / Commodities / Platinum

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals are in the midst of fantastic secular bull markets. And one of the most precious of metals, platinum, has been getting a lot of attention in recent weeks. With geopolitical strife accentuating platinum's current supply shortfalls, speculators have grabbed hold of this metal and launched its price into a parabolic ascent.

While gold still remains king of all metals for a variety of fundamental reasons, platinum is more precious simply because of its price. Its rarity in the earth's crust combined with the challenges of economically extracting it keeps its value typically about twice that of gold.

Central Banks Gold Sales Reduced by 400 Tonnes? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it was learned that the Treasury was to support the sale of 400 tonnes of gold all were surprised. We realized that Congress would still have to be asked to approve the sale. When the mist cleared and we saw in sharp focus what lay ahead we realized that much more needed to be done before the sales became a reality. These are the steps still to be overcome for these sales to take place:
