Turning Bullish on Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Gold's divergence since April was and still is troubling. Despite that divergence, multiple different indicators are now signaling that the precious metal sector could be at or approaching a major bottom. Though gold did break its uptrend from October 2006, it has failed to breakdown in a manner that would deem significant its recent underperformance. Another term for a breakdown that doesn't follow through is "shakeout." The converse is when a breakout occurs but isn't sustained.

US Gasoline Prices Expected to Fall to Under $1.50 / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Nadeem_Walayat

US Unleaded Gasoline futures prices peaked in April at $2.45, subsquent attempts have failed to clear that peak with the trend increasingly looking set to follow the pattern of behavior as in previous years, which implies an eventual decline to below $1.50.

Weekly Gold and Silver Technical Analysis Report -1st July 2007 - Technically Precious with Merv / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Despite a small up tick near the week-end gold is still tracing a slow and steady downward slope. Will it accelerate or come to an end? --- Only THE SHADOW KNOWS (real old timers will remember).

The U.S. Dollar Index

A year or two back I used to review the US $ occasionally, and especially with the P&F chart. I was asked recently why I no longer do so. I had decided to concentrate on gold and silver and so the US $ reviews were just set aside. For old times sake here is the latest P&F of the US $ Index and a brief summary where it's at. The chart and summary are both from a longer term stand point.

Gold and Silver Analysis - The Beauty of Bernanke's Machine / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

The metals can't be held down forever, but that doesn't mean that there isn't one last blast up the sleeves of their opponents, that even from here or hereabouts there couldn't be another selloff like we saw last September… If the Fed acknowledges … the weaker inflation data this could keep their overall posture in balance and signal a return to the prosperity enjoyed by all markets over the last twelve months. For a while. ~ Precious Points , June 24, 2007 Read full article... Read full article...

Silver Coiled and Ready to Spring / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Back in the middle of April I wrote an article that suggested a price pattern for silver that has not been publicized much. In an often polarized area of debate, it was a position that was neither bullish nor bearish but rather a suggestion that silver would drop into a channel formation prior to its next price explosion. I quote from the article:

Note how after the big drop in April 2004, silver also advanced in a similar fashion to our current moves on a rising trend line until the old highs of $8.50 were nearly taken out in December 2004. However, this trend broke to the downside to begin a channel movement for silver for some months before the true breakout occurred in September 2005.

Gold Sales - The Reasoning Behind Switzerland's Policy Decision / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

The classic question has to be asked again, what is the price of gold? If we answer $xxx, then we have to ask the next question, what is the price of a $?

Is the $ so reliable a store of value that it can be used as a measure of gold? This questions the very foundation of the paper currency system. Can one trust the $ or even the international monetary system? It's all a question of degree.

Lead Bull Market / Commodities / Lead

By: Zeal_LLC

There is no denying the fact that we are in a long-term secular bull market for nearly all commodities. And the transformation our global economy is undergoing is unparalleled to anything we've seen in modern history. An economic supercycle has emerged in which a vortex of demand is sucking in commodities with relentless fury.

As suppliers feed the powerful spiraling current, they continue to struggle to meet demand as even record-high prices can hardly stand as a deterrent in suppressing its force. And the industrial metals that are indispensable in their role in building this economy are beginning to take center stage among the commodities investors.

Silver Miners: It is not good enough to be good / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

Having spent a good chunk of my career involved with major construction projects I have gained experience in the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) timeframes of a variety of projects.

The reason we are bringing this to your attention as investors is in response to our mailbag, which currently has a theme of: “I bought this mining company a couple of weeks ago and they have not produced any metal yet”

You Would Have Thought It Was a Gold Bull Market! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Richard_J_Greene

There are just an overwhelming amount of bullish factors for gold and silver that are still cleverly being camouflaged so that the fewest possible can see them.  From this point forward; remember the words of former Fed Chairman Paul Volker from the 1970's, “the one mistake that I made was in not capping the gold price.” 

Do not forget that statement because they did not forget this time and that has created the most incredible investment opportunity for those that see through it that has ever existed.  Control and manipulation in precious metals markets has reached a new level of transparency this year in an effort to discourage interest in the precious metals for their traditional investment merits.

Why are institutional investors rushing to buy into foreign companies with CBM production-sharing contracts in China?

Earlier this month, tiny Hong-Kong listed Zhongyu Gas Holdings (Hong Kong Stock Code: 8070) announced a number of ‘leading institutions' had participated in its latest round of financings to develop the company's coalbed methane (CBM) resources in China.

The Gold of the Pharaohs - Egyption Gold Mining / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Money_and_Markets

Sean Brodrick writes: Just the mention of "the gold of the pharaohs" conjures up images of pyramids, enormously rich rulers, sparkling statues, bejeweled beauties, and forgotten treasure troves.

Heck, the famous funerary mask and coffin of King Tutankhamen was made from more than 242 pounds of pure gold! And King Tut was just a taste of the vast wealth gathered by the ancient society by the Nile.

Precious Metals: Fortune Favours the Brave / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Bob_Kirtley

There are times when a dark cloud descends upon us casting a gloomy shadow of doubt over our investment decisions, testing our courage to the point of destruction.

As we write, the price of Gold has dipped to below $640.00 rendering the milestone of $700.00 a little more then a dream we once had. Yes it is tough to see your Gold investment take it on the chin with little or no come back. But are we not forgetting that this is a seasonal event and the month of June is probably the worst there is as the summer time blues weigh heavily on the markets.

Crack Up Boom Part IV - Gold, Oil and the Dollar / Commodities / Global Financial System

By: Ty_Andros

The Crack-up Boom Series Part IV Introduction

The Crack Up Boom series is exploring the unfolding “Indirect Exchange” (as detailed by Ludvig Von Mises), that dollar holders will be using to exit their holdings now and eventually is will be followed by all holders of fiat currency holdings no matter which country is perpetrating the “fraud” of confiscation of wealth through the printing and credit creation process that all such monetary schemes evolve into. The “Crack Up Boom” will drive an inflationary global expansion to inconceivable heights over the coming years. Asset prices will skyrocket as people do what they always do when threatened, they will modify their behavior and do the things necessary for “SELF PRESERVATION” of their families, countries, economies and their wealth. Let's take a look at Von Mises description of the CRACK UP BOOM once again:

What's Going On In the Precious Metals Sector? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Investmentscore.com

The past few days of trading in gold and silver are a great example of why we continually stress the importance of keeping the big picture in perspective. It is difficult not to become emotional when dramatic one day drops catch even the most seasoned investors off guard.

In the short term, strong dramatic price drops strike fear and doubt into our trading decisions. In these situations we are likely to sell out of our well considered investments and bury our heads in the sand as we can not bear to watch. Remember, if trading the financial markets was easy, everyone would be home building wealth and nobody would be working.

How I Made Eric Bollings Agricultural Commodities Stock Market Play My Own / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Michael_K_Dawson

On Thursday, June 15, the Admiral, Eric Bolling, of CNBC's Fast Money, presented an update to his Agricultural Stock trade (Ag Play). To capitalize on the trend of higher commodity prices allowing farmers to spend more money on new equipment, higher yielding seeds and better fertilizers – he constructed a four stock portfolio.

The stocks are Monsanto Company (MON), a seed producer, Agrium Inc. (AGU), a fertilizer supplier, Bunge Limited (BG), a grain and seed processor and Deere (DE), a farming equipment company. I have been trading energy as well as precious and base metal stocks for a number of years. The idea of playing soft commodities via the stock market was quite appealing. I wrote about it in “Eric Bolling's Agriculture Stock Play: Is it Too Late?”
