Silver Prices and The Management of Perception / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Silver prices and the management of perception economics, that's basically what MOPE stands for. I'm not sure if it was Jim Sinclair that coined that acronym. I think it was, but that's where I heard it for the first time.

It's appropriate to have a subsection of propaganda for economics and finance, so this management of perception economics. It’s basically a system or an extension of generalized propaganda. You can also call it social engineering. You could call it a public relations campaign. In fact, public relations is just a PC term for propaganda. The specific type of propaganda that is associated with finance and economics is this management of perception economics.

Waiting for Goldot Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Gary_Tanashian

In August of 2005 I wrote an article entitled Waiting for Goldot.  It seems silly now but the mood of the time was one of frustration for many gold bugs as the S&P 500 was on a robo grind upward and gold was seemingly going nowhere.  The theme of the article was to have patience, gold was just fine.  Of course, that period was in the midst of a more traditional inflation, when gold and commodities out performed stocks.  So any measure of patience then was a tiny thing compared to what is needed today.

Michael Curran Goes Down-Market Shopping for Gold Stock Winners / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: The_Gold_Report

Most of the low-cost gold producers are fairly valued, says Michael Curran, managing director and mining analyst with Beacon Securities, so he's heading down-market to the advanced development opportunities and early-stage explorers that he thinks could become low-cost producers. Sure there is risk, as Curran explains in this interview with The Gold Report, but the reward could come via either a takeover bid by an established producer seeking to lower its overall costs or by supporting these companies as they transition into emerging producers.

The Gold Report: Please give us two or three key investment themes that you envisage happening in the mining equities space in 2016.

Saudis Planning For A War Of Attrition In Europe With Russia's Oil Industry / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Russia's central bank recently warned about the growing financial risks to the Russian economy from Saudi Arabia encroaching upon its traditional export market for crude oil. Russia sends 70 percent of its oil to Europe, but Saudi Arabia has been making inroads in the European market amid the oil price downturn.

The result is a heavier discount for Russia's crude oil, the so-called Urals blend. Bloomberg reported that the Urals typically lands in Rotterdam, a major European destination, at a discount to Brent of around $2 or less. But the discount has widened to $3.50 lately due to increased competition from Saudi Arabia. "Oil supplies to Europe from Saudi Arabia are probably adversely affecting Urals prices," the Russian central bank warned in a recent report.

A Half-Century of Gold, War, and Costs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

In round numbers, these wars (in today’s dollars) were tremendously expensive:

Vietnam War:  Estimated cost is $740 Billion

War on Drugs:  Estimated cost is $1,000 Billion

War on Terror, including Afghanistan and Iraq:  Estimated cost is $1,700 Billion and counting

War on Poverty:  Estimated cost is $22,000 Billion

Total estimated war costs – about $25 Trillion.  Really?  Value received?

Ted:       Its a great question. COMEX is the center of the gold and silver universe.

Technically, there is trading on these other exchanges. Take the LBMA for example.

Gold Price Hovering Above Support / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

Just as the Euro is hanging by a thread above its chart support zone, so too is gold hanging by a thread above a critical chart support zone. The bottom of that zone is the July low near $1070 with the zone extending upward towards $1080.

Gold drew a bit of support in today’s session ( Monday) out of safe haven buying tied to the horrific carnage in Paris but as is always the case with gold, rallies that come from geopolitical events, generally do not last long, especially when the underlying fundamentals for gold are as poor as they currently are.

What Every Investor Needs to Know About the Diamond Market / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: The_Gold_Report

Investing in diamond equities is quite different from investing in gold equities, explains Matthew O'Keefe, vice president and senior analyst with Dundee Capital Markets, one of a handful of Canadian analysts covering the diamond space. O'Keefe says diamond deposits require "an order of magnitude" greater study than gold deposits in order to properly determine grade, and says diamond prices are almost exclusively driven by consumer demand. In this interview with The Gold Report, O'Keefe sheds some light on two undervalued diamond producers, as well as three promising developers.

The Final Gold Chapter / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Bob_Loukas

This is the final chapter of this intermediate gold Cycle, and it’s likely to get ugly.  If you’ve followed the blog these past few months, you would have been prepared for most of this move as it unfolded in real-time.  The first post back on October 1st was  Gold Cycle Running Out of Steam  and was then followed up (Nov 1st) with Don’t Trust Gold Here.  In both cases, I highlighted how the Weekly Cycle had topped and how similarly past Cycles behaved .  It was why I argued that this Cycle appeared to be no different to the preceding failed, bear market Cycles since 2011.  This is where gold finds itself today, standing on a ledge before a significant fall.  For the patient (and protected) bulls, it may well become the final chapter of this great bear market.

Undeniable Truths about Precious Metals (Don't Forget These...) / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: MoneyMetals

Clint Siegner writes: From first to worst. Gold and silver were the best assets to own during the first decade of this century. During this second decade... not so much. Precious metals bulls have endured 4 years of prices drifting lower punctuated by periodic smash-downs and the occasional false-breakout.

What really gets the goat of gold and silver investors is that, throughout this time, there have been very good fundamental reasons to own metals. Somehow those fundamentals never show up in the price. The price action in recent years is enough to make bulls question reality.

Gold Remains “Best Insurance For A Crisis” – Ficenec / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: GoldCore

- “Future is uncertain and gold is the most effective insurance against that”
– As fears grow about outlook for global economy – long term attraction of gold remains
– As “central banks race to devalue currency,” private individuals are buying record amounts of gold
– “Gold is simply the best insurance against inflation, or deflation”

Editor’s Note: The tragic events in Paris, terrorism and war throughout the world, show geopolitical risk remains high.  These risks will likely impact economies and financial markets and will see continuing safe haven demand for gold.

Why Gold Prices Could Bounce This Week / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Bob_Kirtley

Since the last US employment release and comments from Yellen suggesting a December hike is likely, gold has struggled to maintain its downward momentum. Whilst we believe that the Fed will increase rates in December and gold prices will move lower over the medium term, there is a strong case for a bounce in gold prices in the short term. Technically gold is oversold and holding support at $1080.  This is too low relative to market pricing for a Fed hike and should find support from weaker US data since NFP, lower stocks, lower oil as well as a safe haven bid from any escalation of issues related to ISIS and recent tragic events in Paris.

US$ Breakout Could Unleash Capitulation in Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Last Friday we wrote that precious metals were very oversold and due for a bounce or a pause. We also argued that the overall prognosis remained very bearish. The technicals argue for more downside and sentiment indicators remain far from bearish extremes. The strength in the US$ index is another reason precious metals should remain under pressure. If the US$ index makes a strong break above 100 it could trigger a final wave of liquidation in Gold and Silver.

Do Credit Spreads Move the Gold Price? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Although the bond prices do not drive the price of gold, the spreads between prices of bonds or yields - the different sides of one coin - with different risk level may be an important factor for the gold market. Why? Credit spread is a spread between two securities that are almost identical, except for quality rating. Because Treasuries are considered practically risk-free, they constitute a benchmark to which other bonds are compared. Thus, credit spread usually shows a spread between Treasury securities and identical (except rating) non-Treasuries. In other words, credit spread indicates the risk premium for investing in one (risky) security over another (considered to have almost no risk).

Absurd Gold Stock Levels / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold stocks have suffered heavy collateral damage following the Federal Reserve’s hawkish surprise late last month, which ignited enormous gold-futures selling by American speculators.  This devastated sector has been battered back down near last summer’s deep secular lows.  But these gold-stock price levels are fundamentally absurd, the product of extreme and irrational sentiment that can’t persist for long.

Today’s gold-stock price levels are the greatest fundamental disconnect in the entire stock markets, an epic opportunity for contrarian investors and speculators!  The entire gold-mining industry is trading as if the price of gold, the overwhelmingly-dominant driver of its profits, was just a small fraction of prevailing levels.  Gold stocks are radically underpriced fundamentally based on their current and future earnings power.
