Gold Has Two Major Hurdles to Overcome / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Bob_Kirtley

Background
Gold has 2 major hurdles to overcome and they are as follows:
1. Interest rate rises in the US
2. Money printing by other nations, Japan, UK, Europe, etc.
Both support the US$ and put downward pressure on gold.

Crude Oil Price Stochastic Signals / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): Short positions with a stop-loss order at $65.23 are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

The Stochastic indicator is quite a popular tool for commodity traders (including those interested in trading crude oil and precious metals) and it is not without a reason. This indicator has proven itself many times as something that can really indicate the next move in the market – however, it has to be applied carefully, as not all ways in which it works are really profitable. We have just seen 2 signals from this important indicator – one bullish (based on daily closing prices) and one bearish (based on weekly closing prices). Which should one focus on?

The systems, programs, and institutions your parents set up are mostly worthless scams. Worse, they produce outcomes contrary to their stated goals.

Introduction to Peak Food / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Your high-tech toy watch won't buy you an egg. To date, the U.S. is on course to destroy 40,721,073 birds, mainly laying hens. Yes, elves at USDA do like precision in their numbers. Those birds are the casualty of pathogenic avian influenza outbreak. Despite the state of today's technology, eggs still come from chickens not from factories or 3-D printers. And eggs are not the only Agri- Commodity that has defied both technology and conventional wisdom. By the way, U.S. egg prices are up 120% or more in the past month.

Silver is a Special Metal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Aden_Forecast

It always has been. And on a value basis, it's also a good buy. Silver has been chugging more than gold but once it pops up, it could take off like a bandit.

There are many reasons why silver will go higher and it's just a matter of time. And as our dear friend Richard Russell points out, JP Morgan is aggressively accumulating physical silver by the hundreds of millions of ounces.

Gold : Truth is Stranger than Fiction / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

Below is a combo chart that has gold on top and silver on the bottom. This chart goes back to the bull market top for both gold and silver and the bear market that ensued. Silver topped out in April of 2013 with gold topping out in September of the same year. Their first bear market consolidation patterns were rectangles and both broke down at the same time. From that initial low in June of 2013 they both started to form consolidation patterns and that’s where they parted ways. Silver built out a 15 month 6 point triangle consolidation pattern before it broke down. The bottom rail of the 6 point triangle consolidation pattern has held resistance for nine months or so. The first thing that would get me excited about silver would be if it could take out the apex of the blue triangle above 18.65. Below the apex bearish and above bullish.

What You Know for Certain - Huge Demand for Gold And Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

If there is any certainty in the world, [and there is very little], it is that the demand for gold and silver is at its highest and has been running at a fevered pitch for several years. From John Keats "Ode On A Grecian Urn," "...that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know." Anything else stems from subjective conclusions drawn from lying politicians, no matter the source or government. They all lie under the aegis of political diplomacy. For Obama and his entire administration there is very little diplomacy, so mostly just lies.

Gold Miners Fail at 200-day Moving Average / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Last week we wrote that the precious metals complex had not broken out yet and had more work to do before it could attempt a true breakout. The metals had some more upside and so did the shares. However, the poor performance of the shares this past week could warn of a larger reversal.

Gold Price Primary Driver Bullish / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold has been fairly volatile so far this year, seeing plenty of big daily surges and selloffs.  But with all these largely netting out to the sideways grind of recent months, gold’s price action has been frustrating for bullish and bearish traders alike.  Gaming gold in these strange central-bank-distorted times requires closely watching its primary driver, the collective bets of American futures speculators.  They portend a rally.

Just last week, the venerable World Gold Council published its latest comprehensive analysis of global gold supply and demand.  The intersection of these core fundamentals ultimately determines prevailing gold price levels.  And since bringing new gold mines online takes well over a decade, supply levels only change very gradually.  So gold prices are mostly determined by the shifting tides on the demand side.

BitGold - Imitation Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Peter_Schiff

To hear BitGold founders Joshua Crumb or Roy Sebag talk about their new company, one would think they came up with the idea of individuals transacting in gold or using a debit card to access their gold holdings on their own. While I agree it’s a good idea, it’s certainly not original. 

I first began writing about this concept in my 2007 book, “Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse”. I put it into effect with the establishment of my offshore bank, Euro Pacific Bank. In fact, BitGold is simply hoping to expand on my existing platform, which expanded on concepts first pioneered by e-gold and GoldMoney (which BitGold just purchased using its vastly overpriced stock).

New World Currency Backed By Gold or Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Chris_Vermeulen

History has proven that 100% of fiat currencies have failed the test of time. The average life span of a fiat currency is 40-50 years. With the US dollar now in it’s 44th year it makes you wonder if the end of the greenback is near.

The only money that has held the test of time has been asset-backed currencies using gold. Or through owning gold and silver bullion.

This Innovation Will Help U.S. Companies Win The Oil Price War / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: OilPrice_Com

Although some US oil companies are struggling with low oil prices, a new wave of innovation is hitting the oil patch, allowing for a significant reduction in drilling costs.

A variety of different improvements in production are starting to show up at all levels across the industry from small firms to oil majors. Statoil for example recently noted that it is experimenting with different types of sand and chemicals to improve production. And a number of companies have noted that they are moving from drilling wells one at a time, on an ad hoc basis, to drilling multiple wells at once. GE Oil & Gas has produced variable-use pumps that can be turned on and off in order to save energy versus the previous 24-hour a day operation cycle.

The US Dollar and the Precious Metals Complex / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

The first chart I would like to show you today is the long term monthly chart for the US Dollar I showed you a week or two ago. It was coming into contact with the top rail of a massive 30 year falling wedge at 93.50. I also drew in a neckline extension rail taken from the H&S top that formed back in 2000 which came in at 92. I put the little brown box to show you where I was hoping to find support. So far the top rail is doing its thing by reversing its role to what had been resistance to now support once it was broken to the upside. This is a critical test taking place right here which so far the US dollar bulls are winning.

Gold GLD ETF Drawdown Continues Unabated / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

The giant gold ETF, GLD, reported yet another drawdown in its holdings this afternoon. This time around it was a 3 tons reduction bringing the total holdings to 715.26 tons. That is now up a mere 6.24 tons since the start of the year levels, a far cry from its peak in February of a 64 ton increase on the year.

There is no way to spin this to make it the least bit friendly for the cause of gold.
