All Along the Silver Demonetization Watchtower / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The particularly ruthless destruction of wealth that disproportionately have an effect on the poor and elderly is a process that slowly, then all at once, destroys the middle class - which has its roots in the debasement of money. 

This is as pervasive today as it was in the days of coin clipping.

Gold Safer Than A Bank Account...But Only If You Follow This Crucial Advice / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jeff_Berwick

Vin Maru writes: While investors in the precious metals sector had to endure a tough bear market in the past couple of years, there is a glimmer of golden light at the end of this dark tunnel. The fundamentals for gold ownership have not changed and remain as strong as ever, and that's why our special report Getting Your Gold Out Of Dodge (GYGOOD) comes highly recommended. Over two years ago, I started researching and writing this report with The Dollar Vigilante team. It is a complete compendium on how to internationalize your precious metal's holdings and move them out of the western financial system.

The California Shale Bubble Just Burst / Commodities / Fracking

By: OilPrice_Com

The great hype surrounding the advent of a shale gas bonanza in California may turn out to be just that: hype. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) – the statistical arm of the Department of Energy – has downgraded its estimate of the total amount of recoverable oil in the Monterey Shale by a whopping 96 percent. Its previous estimate pegged the recoverable resource in California’s shale formation at 13.7 billion barrels but it now only thinks that there are 600 million barrels available.

Will Central Banks Need to Buy Gold Back from The Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Gold Leasing - to what extent

There is a belief that central bank gold in the custody of the world's leading central banks such as the Fed, the Bank of England and the Banque de France has been leased out to the market. Central Banks have confirmed this, but it remains a source of contention. Even where the gold of the world's central banks are held in the world's leading central banks in a custodial arrangement this is so and it is reasonable to assume that this could not be done without the gold's owner's permission. This is what we do know;

The Birth of a New Palladium Bull Market / Commodities / Palladium

By: Jeff_Clark

If I asked you why you think I’m bullish on platinum and palladium, you’d probably point to the strikes in South Africa, the world’s largest producer of platinum. Or maybe the geopolitical conflicts with Russia, the largest supplier of palladium. Maybe you’d even mention that some technical analysts say the palladium price has “broken out” of its trading range.

These are all valid points—but they’re reasons why a trader might be bullish. When the strikes end, or Russia ends its aggression, or short-term price momentum eases, they’ll sell.

Gold Price - A 40 Year Perspective / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

In broad terms, gold was in a bull market during the late 1960s and 70s, a bear market during the 80s and 90s, and back in a bull market since 2001. The important questions are:

  • Did gold reach a generational peak in 2011 and subsequently turn down for a decade or two?

Or

  • Did gold reach an intermediate top in 2011 based on QE, dollar weakness, and high demand, correct for 2.5 years, and then begin a rally likely to persist through the end of the decade?

Gold Price Bearish Reversal Ahead / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Gregor_Horvat

Gold is moving sideways in 1268-1331 range for more than a month between two contracting trend-lines that make a shape of a triangle. We are looking at a running triangle in wave (b) that can be near completion as rise from 1276 is already in three legs that represents wave e), final leg in the pattern. With that in mind, traders should be aware of a bearish reversal down in wave (c) towards 1220/40 especially once 1277 and pattern support will give way.

Crude Oil Stocks Change of Trend or Just a Correction? / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Nadia_Simmons

In the previous week, crude oil moved higher after pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine voted in favor of self rule in a weekend referendum. These circumstances fueled fears that the conflict may escalate further and trigger more sanctions against Russia, affecting Russian oil shipments. At this point, it’s worth noting that worries over this issue have kept oil prices above the level of $100 in recent weeks. Nevertheless, although the U.S. and the European Union imposed two rounds of sanctions, they didn’t disrupt shipments from Russia. The situation, however, deteriorated slightly as the EU expanded sanctions (targeting two Crimean companies and 13 people to aim at corporations rather than individuals) last Monday. In reaction to this news, Russia reiterated that it could cut off Kiev's natural gas supplies and informed the EU in the following days that it would stop natural-gas deliveries to Ukraine on June 1 unless it receives payments for past-due amounts. Ukraine said it is preparing to pay $4 billion to Gazprom but hopes to negotiate lower prices.

Time Is the Trigger for Equities and Gold Bullion / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

Charles Oliver, lead portfolio manager with the Sprott Gold and Precious Minerals Fund, believes the only thing between investors and bigger investment returns on precious metals equities and bullion, especially silver, is time. In this interview with The Gold Report, Oliver discusses silver and gold demand drivers, as well as portfolio ideas that figure to get bigger with time as the trigger.

The Gold Report: "Sell in May and go away" is a common investing axiom but does it have any validity?

Crude Oil Price At Crossroads / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

On Friday,  crude oil gained 0.61% as strong U.S. economic data and ongoing worries over the crisis in Ukraine weighted on the price. Thanks to these circumstances, light crude came back above $102, but does this growth change the short-term outlook for the commodity?

On Friday, better-than-expected numbers from the housing sector gave crude oil a support. The Census Bureau reported that U.S. building permits rose 8% to 1.080 million units last month (while analysts had expected an increase to 1.010 million units in April) and the Commerce Department showed that U.S. housing starts rose 13.2% last month to 1.072 million units, beating expectations of 980,000 gain (it was the largest increase in five months).

Silver Price at Critical Support / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) are justified from the risk/reward perspective in gold, silver, and mining stocks.

The previous week started quite favorably for precious metals bulls, but as the week progressed, the situation became less bullish, and finally we saw some bearish signs. Overall, the previous week didn’t change much. Let’s take a closer look (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

How Long Can Phase II of the Gold Pool Be Sustained / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jesse

"The London Gold Pool was the pooling of gold reserves by a group of eight central banks in the United States and seven European countries that agreed on 1 November 1961 to cooperate in maintaining the Bretton Woods System of fixed-rate convertible currencies and defending a gold price of US$35 per troy ounce by interventions in the London gold market.

The central banks coordinated concerted methods of gold sales to balance spikes in the market price of gold as determined by the London morning gold fixing while buying gold on price weaknesses. The United States provided 50% of the required gold supply for sale. The price controls were successful for six years until the system became no longer workable. The pegged price of gold was too low and runs on gold, the British pound, and the US dollar occurred and France decided to withdraw from the pool. The London Gold Pool collapsed in March 1968.

Future For Gold As Uncertain As It Is Certain. Silver Will Lead/Follow / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

Based on several thousand years of history, and based on the last 100 years of fiats, gold will continue to rise as a store of value, and almost all fiats will fail, massively. Which fiats will continue? The Yuan and the Ruble, for two. The Panama Balboa is another possibility, but Panama will have to do some sorting out to get rid of the fiat US dollar, its paper currency. The official money of account is the Panama balboa, but it ceased printing around 1941, in favor of the US dollar. This little Central American country has been making preparations to disassociate from the fiat Federal Reserve Notes.

Silver Stealth Buying / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Silver has suffered as a market pariah this year, dragging along doggedly near major lows.  Investors have seemingly abandoned it to chase the Fed’s general-stock-market levitation, an affliction plaguing most of the alternative-investment realm.  But rather provocatively, silver buying remains quite strong even in this dreary sentiment wasteland.  This stealth buying will likely explode once gold starts running.

After silver plunged 35.6% in 2013 and hit 2.8-year lows, it’s easy to understand why it remains deeply out of favor today.  With the Fed’s extreme money printing and jawboning dramatically catapulting general stocks higher, mainstreamers forgot about alternative investments including silver.  But for the brave contrarians who would rather buy low than buy high, silver remains an incredibly alluring investment.

Firmer Tone for Gold and Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

This week started with a severe markdown in gold and silver prices when markets opened in the Far East on Monday morning, taking gold down $12 to $1278 and silver only 12 cents to $19.03. The clue in this was the resilience of silver, which hardly moved: it was an attack on the gold price presumably designed to take out stop-losses.

From there precious metals never looked back. Interestingly, for the first time in a long time, prices advanced in London dealings, indicating they were being driven more by physical demand than trading in US futures. This is hardly a surprise given that GOFO is still negative for up to three months forward and has been in backwardation every day since 3rd April.

Are Silver Prices Set Up for Another Heartbreak? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

For long term investors and precious metals observers, the range-bound price action has rubbed salt into the open wound of short price sentiment. That is, if there is anyone left to remember the move up to $50 in 2011.

How long prices can remain relatively quiet and range-bound (in the face of growing fundamentals, geopolitical tension, and the rising awareness of inflation) is anyone's guess.
