Where the Energy Sector Goes From Here / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: With the stock market now roaring back, investors are left to wonder whether the worst is behind us – or if there’s more pain yet to come.

Given the size of the sell-off, it’s clear a slew of folks expected a “correction,” and to that extent received a self-fulfilling prophecy.

However, at times the decline was more like a snowball cascading down a hill with no overall rhyme or reason.

The Better Short: Gold or Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Bob_Kirtley

The fundamentals for the precious metals are weak. This has been highlighted in recent weeks by the lack of a major rally in gold and the losses in silver despite a spike in volatility to its highest since 2011. Improving economic data, the tapering of QE, and discussion of when the first rate hike will be have resulted in heavy losses over the past two years in the precious metals, and are to blame for the poor performance in the recent risk off market conditions stemming from the Ebola fears.

Focus on Graphite Companies with Green Energy and Technology Strategies / Commodities / Graphene

By: The_Gold_Report

Graphite equities continue to trade sideways, but a handful are starting to emerge as best-in-class plays as they race to secure offtake agreements by derisking their projects through resource upgrading and economic studies. Ron Struthers, editor and publisher of Struthers' Resource Stock Report, says that investors need to focus on companies with strategies designed to position themselves with green energy and technology firms. In this interview with The Gold Report, he names a few players that make the grade.

Crude Oil Price Hitting Bottom / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Submissions

Bob Loukas writes: In the past, we’ve discussed at length the structural problems facing Crude. So the pressure the energy markets are under, both from the demand and supply sides, should come as no surprise. This double whammy to the Crude market is not likely to be resolved overnight; demand-supply issues require time to work through a market.

Through hydraulic fracking and a massive influx of investment capital, the US has again become a major oil producer. But it’s the speed with which new supply from the US has come on line that has taken the market by surprise and rocked prices.

Low Crude Oil Prices Hurting U.S. Shale Operations / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Slumping oil prices are putting pressure on U.S. drillers.

The number of active rigs drilling for oil and gas fell by their most in two months, according to the latest data from oil services firm Baker Hughes. There were 19 oil rigs that were removed from operation as of Oct. 17, compared to the prior week. There are now 1,590 active oil rigs, the lowest level in six weeks.

Timing is everything in investments, and after watching the precious metals markets for the past three months, since the publishing of his last article at the June lows, Peter draws the conclusion that gold bullion and gold mining stocks have finally bottomed and are ready to resume the bullish trend than began twelve years ago.

Copper, Nickel and Zinc Won't Be Cheap for Long / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Metals_Report

The all-powerful U.S. dollar is currently hammering base metals and base metal equities. Haywood Securities Mining Analyst Stefan Ioannou says that increasing demand and near-term supply shortages make base metals a bargain that won't last. In this interview with The Mining Report, Ioannou argues that juniors with good deposits and low costs are in a unique position to benefit, and lists several companies that look to do just that.

Gold and Real Interest Rate / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Arkadiusz Sieron writes: Teaser: Does gold respond to the inflation or rather to the real interest rate? Paul Krugman said once that the reason behind the high real price of gold between 2001 and 2011 was low real interest rates, not the expected inflation. Is he right and are real interest rates really the main driver of the yellow metal price? How do they affect the gold market?

During the last boom, the gold price was stubbornly rising, but inflation was low. Not surprisingly the relationship between real interest rates (nominal interest rates less inflation) and gold increasingly attracted more and more interest. If gold responds mainly to the real interest rate, it makes its inflation hedge character questionable. This was the opinion of, for example, Paul Krugman, a Nobel Laureate in economics. Krugman claimed that the reason behind the high real price of gold until 2011 was low real interest rates, not the expected inflation.

How Will We Know That the Gold & Silver Price Bottom Is In? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

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

Yesterday, gold closed higher than it did in the previous several weeks, which seems like a very bullish development for the entire precious metals market until one realizes that miners are still close to their most recent lows.

In short, in our opinion, the answer to the title question is that miners could rally some more in the short term, but we don’t expect the rally to be significant. We expect to see significant rallies after the final bottom is reached (in a few weeks – months), but not before that – at least not based on the information that we have available today. Furthermore, it seems that the next local top will be reached shortly, but that it’s not in just yet.

Is Gold as Dead as Florida Hurricanes? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Don_Miller

It’s been over 3,280 days since a hurricane hit Florida. As hurricane season comes to a close next month, only Mother Nature knows how long the streak will last.

Like many Floridians, my wife and I stayed home and rode out a hurricane—once! We’d built a home on Perdido Key, a barrier island west of Pensacola. It was engineered to withstand 150-plus mph winds, and it was a beautiful home with a master bedroom spanning the entire third floor, looking out across the Gulf of Mexico.

On the heels of a lively Sprott Precious Metals Roundtable discussion, The Gold Report caught up with investor Eric Sprott to ask how a tragedy in Africa could impact the price of precious metals and mining stocks. We also spoke to his Executive Vice President of Corporate Development John Ciampaglia about a new way to gain exposure to gold.

When the U.S. begins exporting massive quantities of LNG in 2015, it will immediately be catapulted into a position as one of the world’s largest exporters as well.

Gold And Silver - Financial World: House Of Cards Built On Sand / Commodities / Global Debt Crisis 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

Take heart PM community, your turn is coming. What is happening in the stock market is a harbinger of what is sure to come for gold and silver, at some point in the future. When? Ah, that elusive question the answer to which so many want to know, the same answer to which so many so-called prognosticators have serially gotten wrong over the past few years. The best answer is patience.

It is highly unlikely that a single bank, at least in the Western fiat central banking system, is solvent. All, repeat, all banks are insolvent, propped up by the Rothschild system that few can successfully challenge. All banks exist by accounting deceit and every kind of threat, indirect or otherwise, that it is not wise to challenge the international banking cartel [on the verge of collapse]. Russia and China are rising to the occasion rather timely.

Leading Indicators for Gold Price Turnaround / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Gold is currently getting a reprieve as it trades close to $1240 which is above important weekly support at $1200. It's safe for the time being but we believe that Gold will ultimately break back below $1200 and below $1100 before the end of the already long in the tooth bear market. Because Gold is somewhat of an anti-asset, it's important to chart its course against other asset classes. Gold performs best when its strong against all other classes. Moreover, prior to recent important bottoms Gold bottomed first against other classes before bottoming in nominal terms. It appears that could happen again.

Gold and Silver Extreme Shorting Peaks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

The world's financial markets are changing dramatically with the Federal Reserve on the verge of ending its third quantitative-easing campaign. The Fed's massive deluge of inflation drastically distorted markets, which are finally starting to normalize. The precious metals were crushed by the Fed's artificial levitation of the stock markets, leading to extreme futures shorting. But that looks to have peaked, a very bullish omen.

What a difference a few weeks makes! Back in mid-September, the US stock markets were drenched in euphoria and hitting nominal record highs. Nearly everyone was totally convinced equities would keep on climbing forever. You couldn't turn on CNBC or open a financial newspaper without seeing endless predictions for a big end-of-year rally. And gold and silver were despised, believed to be doomed to spiral lower.
