India 's Falling Gold Demand: A Panic for Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Just like everywhere else, Indian consumers face the problem of too much money chasing prices too high and becoming worth less each day..."

IT'S HARD TO OVER-EGG the importance of Indian jewelry demand in the physical gold market. Between 2000 and 2007, gold jewelry sold in India accounted for one ounce-in-nine sold worldwide. One ounce in every five wound up as an Indian import (its domestic mines produce less than six tonnes per year), ready to be hung off young brides as 24-carat dowries or worked into bracelets and necklaces for the international market.

Increasing Gold Demand from Sovereign Wealth Funds and Central Banks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $922.20, down 50 cents and silver was down 16 cents to $17.22. Gold has rallied in Asia and in early European trading.

While oil is up slightly and the dollar is down slightly, gold is likely to be up on bargain hunting and safe haven buying. The 100 day moving average at $916 appears to be good support and the summer low is likely to be around these levels although a brief dip below $900 is possible.

Energy Resources Bull Market Remains Intact / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFlooding last month interrupted rail traffic in the Midwest , disrupting ethanol production and shipments. Shipments of low-sulfur Power River Basin coal needed for many power plants has also been impacted. Coal inventories are already lean at many generating plants. Barge traffic has come to a standstill in many areas on the Mississippi River .

The impact of the floods on the global agricultural and energy markets in our opinion will be much larger than expected. We think the extent of these impacts will become evident quite soon, and will be reflected in the markets.

Gold Ambushed by Powerful Forces of Global De-leveraging / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the second time in the last several weeks, the gold market has been on the receiving end of ambushes. Leading up to their July 3rd announced rate hike, the Euro Central Bank strong hints prompted the last ambush. The gold futures contracts bear this out easily, as the big cartel players sold down the gold price with heavy paper supply simultaneously. They had to do so. When physical is in reduced supply, resort to trusty paper. After stabilizing in the 920 to 925 range, gold promptly rose to exceed 980, only to be ambushed yet again. The ambush consists of an unexplainable sudden $20 decline in midday , cheered by the majority but without any analysis of where the decline originated. The motive for the early July ambush was simple.

Gold Heading for Seasonal Lows Prior to Strong August Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold finished trading in New York yesterday at $922.70, down $25.50 and silver was down 55 cents to $17.38. Gold has rallied in Asia and in early European trading with bargain hunting buying. Traders and investors with more medium to long term horizons realize that the speed and depth of the sell off is overdone. Especially as none of the fundamental macroeconomic or geopolitical issues have disappeared or even abated. Speculators, both long and short ( it is important to remember that most speculative money is on the short side of the oil, gold and silver markets), can have real impacts in the short term and create volatility and exacerbate trends in either direction.

Ominous Top Forming in Gold Mining ETF / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Current weakness in the Market Vectors Gold Mining ETF (AMEX: GDX) is imbuing the larger chart pattern with a very ominous look -- of a major, multi-month top forming. Furthermore, if the price structure presses beneath critical support between 42.50 and 41.50, the massive top formation will trigger significant sell signals that project a target of 37 to 34 thereafter.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBig bang for your buck – isn't that what investors want – the ten bagger or better. But where is it going to come from next. Haven't the easy pickings already been taken this far into the PM bull? After all the low hanging fruit has been taken hasn't it? You can see that from the charts on the HUI and the XAU can't you? That is not to say these magnificent indices will not go higher but I am talking about the easy pickings and leverage.

Profiting from Alternative Energies That Work / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Many Americans are disgusted by the fact that, faced with an energy crisis, the government seems to produce nothing but hot air. I think the government is paralyzed because there's no one clear solution.

Instead, there are a multitude of options — more drilling, nuclear power, hydrogen cars, solar power ... you name it. Every alternative has a lobby in Washington to press its case, but there's no one to tell our elected officials which is the best route to take.

Junior Gold Stocks Benefit from Stabilizing Equity Markets / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJunior Gold Stocks - With the Stock Market Panic behind us - for now - we are settling in for a range bound, relatively calm, second half of '08. Junior Gold Stocks should finally start to benefit as the wet blanket smothering equity markets lift.

The New York Stock Exchange indicator for new lows reached an extreme of 1304 on Tuesday the 15 th of July. That was even worse than the 1100 new lows reached on the 22 nd of January. Such extremes spell one thing P-A-N-I-C.

Gold Corrects Lower Following Oil Price Plunge Below $130 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $948.20, down $15.20 and silver was down 44 cents to 17.93. Gold continued to fall in Asia and in early European trading it is down by nearly 1.3%.

Gold was due a correction after its recent surge in price and remains up some 6% in the last month (from $882 to  $935) unlike oil and the majority of stock markets (which are down by similar amounts). Gold's recent outperformance may have led to a bout of profit taking and further consolidation is likely prior to challenging the March highs of $1030 per ounce in the coming weeks.

Soft Commodities Price Trends / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

With paper oil prices having peaked, we keep hearing a question that demonstrates the uninformed minds of many strategists and talking heads in the business media. That question is, “Have commodity prices peaked?” Again, commodities is not a homogeneous asset class. Comprising it are actually three separate and distinct commodity groups. Energy, minerals, and Agri-Food are the three major genus of the family referred to as commodities. Each is driven by different and unique factors. Each will have a individualistic investment cycle that will drive prices and returns. Falling oil prices may tangentially influence some Agri-Food prices, but do not dominate them. However, the greater impact of lower oil price may be the reduction in costs and improved profitability.

Financial Sector in Crisis as Gold Stocks Set to Go Ballistic / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRight now, those holding financial stocks can be viewed as a frog in a pot of boiling water. As long as the water does not boil, the frog is safe…but mark my words, before the year closes out, the water will boil.

Trying to have a realistic and “contrary view” when someone is directly involved in a particular market is extremely difficult, especially when being stuck in the pot. This will apply to those in the commodity market within 3-4 years, so everyone involved will have to try and have a level head. As gold bugs, we are trying to stick are toes into the water but are repelled by the heat. It will be important to make sure all participants are carrying a thermometer in their pocket to realize when the markets become overheated to a near boiling point, causing everything to spill over.

The Insanity of Rising Crude Oil AND Gold Prices / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne characteristic of the charts is that they show patterns which demand attention, regardless of any preconceptions or prejudices one might have.

I have been writing fairly extensively recently about a psychological phenomenon known as “cognitive dissonance” which – broadly speaking – means that a healthy mind cannot comfortably hold two conflicting thoughts simultaneously. Typically what happens if one has a fairly well entrenched view on any subject, and a piece of conflicting evidence manifests, is that one either rejects the new evidence as being “obviously” (?) wrong, refuses to acknowledge its existence, or rationalises it away as being unimportant.

This essay looks at the seasonal lows for the HUI index, and examines the rise that followed this low, for the past 9 cycles (1999 – 2008). This study should give us a good idea for future expectations, regarding the remainder of 2008. “As the HUI goes, so goes the gold price”.
