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.

How High Can Gold Go? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold was down $1 to $944.70 per ounce in trading in New York on Friday but silver was up 10 cents to $18.00 per ounce. Gold rose close to new nominal record highs in early European trading ($951.90) and silver rose to new 27 year highs ($18.15) . Last week gold was up by more than 4.5% (more than $40) as fears regarding burgeoning inflation and indeed stagflation began to permeate financial markets. Silver was even stronger and was up by 5% on the week.

Monetary Inflation Feeding Precious Metals Bull Markets- The Bubble Inside the Bubble / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Despite seasonality beginning to work against gold and silver, there is no bearishness or call to short here. Copper could be set to break out of a multi-year consolidation.” ~Precious Points: Bull Markets in Metals, February 16, 2008

It would be easy to give the most unabashedly bullish picture for metals week after week. The temptation to do so is very real given that I've been a believer in the metals story since before the subprime meltdown, before the faintest whisper of a possible crisis in exotic credit-based derivatives began appearing on the web (but nowhere in the mainstream commercial media). But this week, though it seems a stall in the rally may be ahead if the Fed continues to jawbone the issue of inflation, I am compelled to revise my charts in a decidedly bullish fashion.

Gold Push to New Highs Lacks Strength / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price of gold continues into new highs BUT the strength of such recent move keeps getting weaker. Either the strength needs to improve soon or the weakness may dominate.

GOLD : LONG TERM
I thought it was time to check in again on the long term P&F Chart. Since we last looked in on it we have gone though a consolidation period and have broken into new highs. Most important, the action has now given us a higher value as a major support which, if breached, may give us a bear market reversal signal.

Gold's Hypnotic $1000 Price Target and the Outlook for Precious Metal Shares / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a lot of fear circulating around the Internet concerning gold/silver and the gold/silver stocks. As contrarians, that's exactly what we like to see. It lets us know the prevailing trend (up) is still intact and that higher prices are likely to be seen before the next interim top is in.

The fear in the PM stocks among the “dumb money” trading public almost perfectly mirrors the optimism shown by the “smart money” traders who have recently been buying the PM stocks with both hands in anticipation of another leg up in the momentum market for the gold stocks. Take for instance the latest readings in the CBOE Gold Index put/call open interest.

Energy Sector Peak Oil Trends Paint “A Very Alarming Picture” / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile energy demand may be tempered by a slowdown in global economic growth, longer term growing energy demands and supply constraints will continue to present incredible challenges. Much more capital will need to be allocated to the sector to address supply issues, which should create opportunities for investors. We noted the following developments in the energy sector last month:

Could Gold Mimic Platinum's Parabolic Move? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My technical work is telling me (and has been telling me) that gold prices (the GLD) is on borrowed time on the upside, and that they will implode IF in fact the global slowdown story has any merit. Then again, growing perceptions of stagflation could last a while longer, until the commodity sector rolls over amidst evidence of a global economic contraction.

HUI Gold Stocks Index Up-Legs Structure Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite very difficult prevailing stock-market conditions, the HUI unhedged gold-stock index has soared 55% since mid-August! You'd think gold-stock traders would be thrilled with such awesome gains. Instead they are very disappointed, because gold itself is up 45% over this same period of time and the HUI hasn't adequately leveraged its gains.

To delve into this vexing conundrum, a couple weeks ago I updated my research on HUI leverage to gold . It showed that leverage varies wildly over the course of uplegs, so it is pointless to worry about mid-upleg. Like the weather, it will soon change. As I was doing this leverage research, some fascinating peripheral insights into the technical structure of HUI uplegs became apparent.

Experts: Global Food Shortages Could ‘Continue for Decades' / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal inventories of grains are nearing historic lows, while twenty percent of the U.S. corn crop this coming year will be used for ethanol production. Meanwhile wheat, rice and soybean prices have reached all-time highs and corn prices have jumped to a 12-year high.

Demand for grain continues to increase adding upward pressure on the price of agricultural products. We expect this trend to continue. Recent developments in the sector, found in various publications, include:

Access to Water of Paramount Importance for Mining Operations / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCareful about Moving to Nevada - I have one thread that basically sums up the title for the introduction so please read before continuing further into the article: http://www.physorg.com/news122050436.html . Access to water is essential for mining and nuclear power plants and if Lake Mead continues to decline in volume, the Hoover dam will become a modern day Pyramid…a derelict of the past that had a purpose only to be viewed as a monument of the technical savvy of those that went before them. This event could affect millions of people, so as an aside, avoid purchasing real estate in Vegas because it likely is entering a long-term bear market.
