Fiat Money Implications for Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

By December, the most recent month for which statistics are available, the US dollar Fiat Money Quantity (FMQ) had grown to $12.48 trillion. This is $5.05 trillion more than if it had grown in line with the established average monthly growth rate from 1960 to the month before the Lehman Crisis. By this measure of currency inflation, since August 2009 inflation is now 68% above trend. This is illustrated in Chart 1 below.

Germany’s Gold is the Story de Jour / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

It transpired last week that of the 43-odd tonnes per annum the Bundesbank expects to be returned from the New York Fed only 5 tonnes arrived in 2013. Furthermore, of the 373.7 tonnes stored with the Banque de France only 32 tonnes was delivered. This is little more than a morning’s delivery in the London market, so it is hard to swallow the Bundesbank’s excuses about logistics.

Comparing Apples and Oranges of Silver and Gold Price Manipulation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

By now, most observers have heard of precious metals price manipulation. As the issue creeps into the mainstream, more and more investors will come to understand it - along with its vast implications.

We've covered the mechanisms used to manipulate the metals extensively, but it is important to point out the differences between gold and silver in terms of how they are managed. This is because it provides excellent insight into the relative character of each metal's unique supply and demand profile.

Why Gold Stocks are Leading Gold Bullion Price / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

At the start of the year we asserted that the mining equities could lead the metals higher. Since then, the shares have roared higher while the metals have remained subdued. Gold has gained a bit but Silver has really struggled. Why are the stocks performing so well if the metals are not confirming?

The main reason is the stocks led the metals down (specifically Gold) during the bear market. The chart below plots CDNX (Canadian juniors), GDXJ (US juniors), GDX (large caps) and Gold. Note that both junior markets peaked months before Gold. GDX technically peaked at the same time but began its topping process in December 2010, well before Gold peaked.

Black Swans, Yellow Gold - Gold as a disinflation hedge Part2 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_J_Kosares

(The following is the second of a five-part series on how gold performs during periods of deflation, chronic disinflation, runaway stagflation and hyperinflation. The second installment examines gold’s safe-haven role during a disinflationary breakdown like the one in 2008-2009.)

“The inability to predict outliers implies the inability to predict the course of history. . .But we act as though we are able to predict historical events, or, even worse, as if we are able to change the course of history. We produce thirty-year projections of social security deficits and oil prices without realizing that we cannot even predict these for next summer — our cumulative prediction errors for political and economic events are so monstrous that every time I look at the empirical record I have to pinch myself to verify that I am not dreaming. What is surprising is not the magnitude of our forecast errors, but our absence of awareness of it.” - Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan — The Impact of the Highly Improbable, 2010

Two Gold Stocks You’ll Wish You Owned in 2013… and Should Still Buy Now / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Laurynas Vegys, Research Analyst

Looking back on 2013, we have to conclude that it was one of the worst years for precious metals stocks in recent memory—despite all the reasons why it should have been a great one.

Here's a sober look at the performance of the most widely followed indices in the precious metals (PM) sector.

Silver 'Bullets' - Not just about Vampires and Werewolves / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: David_Morgan

The idea that bullets made from silver offered an effective (sometimes only) means of dispatching evil entities from vampires to werewolves, has been around in popular mythology for quite some time. A Brothers Grimm fairy tale called The Two Brothers, features a supposedly conventional bullet-proof witch being given an attitude adjustment via the use of silver bullets. According to Bulgarian legend, Delyo, a 17th century rebel who led forces against the Ottoman Empire, was immune to injury from either swords or guns, so his enemies cast a silver bullet in order to dispatch him from the scene.

Gold Investors Buy Signal Patience is Required / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Toby_Connor

In my last post I noted that gold could give a major buy signal in the next 2-3 weeks. Let me stress again that patience is required right here. Gold has to confirm the intermediate rally first. That means it needs to break above $1268 and make a higher high. If it doesn't do that then no buy signal will be generated. Without a reversal of the pattern of lower lows and lower highs then this is just another weak bear market rally destined to roll over and break the bulls hearts again.

Gold Slam-Dunk Sell or Buy Trade of the Year? / Commodities / Articles

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: Demand for gold bullion remains high. Each day there’s a new piece of information that continues to attest to this phenomenon. With this, I remain bullish on the yellow shiny metal. But one thing should be noted: I am not saying the bottom has been placed in, but that all the indicators are suggesting a bottom may be in the making.

What Does 2014 Hold for Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

Eric Lemieux, a mining analyst with Laurentian Bank Securities in Québec, is a realist, which makes his optimistic outlook for miners in 2014 that much more compelling. Lemieux believes that with the wheat separated from the chaff over the past tumultuous year, the truly strong companies have emerged. But you may be surprised by the jurisdictions he predicts will come to life in 2014. Lemieux makes some startling, but happy forecasts in this interview with The Gold Report.

The Mining Report: Eric, your top stock pick in 2013— Virginia Mines Inc. (VGQ:TSX)—outperformed the S&P/TSX SmallCap Index. What's your recipe for picking stocks in 2014?

Energy Outlook: What’s Hot in 2014 / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Marin_Katusa

Investors who want to know how the energy sector will be doing in the coming year are, in my opinion, asking the wrong question. There really is no such thing as "the energy sector," because the performance of the different resources—from oil and gas, to uranium, to coal, to renewables—can vary dramatically.

Case in point: while unconventional oil exploration and production have seen a huge upswing in recent years, thanks to the vast success of the Bakken and other oil-rich shale formations, at the same time natural gas has taken a nosedive, due to a supply glut that still hasn't found its balancing point.

Falling Commodities Prices Despite QE - What Does That Mean? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: EWI

During QE3, the latest round of the Fed's quantitative easing, the stock market rose. We all know that.

But did you also know that commodities fell?

That's right: QE3 had zero effect on commodities -- or maybe even a negative effect. In fact, an unbiased observer of the trend might conclude that the Fed drove commodity prices down.

Gold Fix, Gold Market Rigging / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jesse

Gold fell back to test its 50 DMA in light trade today, and silver followed.

There was a little movement in and out of the Comex warehouses on Friday, but nothing of significance.

This is a holiday shortened week in the US, and trading will be even lighter than usual in the first part of this week thanks to winter storm Janus. Janus as you may recall is the two-faced Roman god of transitions, beginnings and endings. He might very well be the god of choice for politicians in the modern era as well.

A Dozen Gold, Copper, Phosphate and Uranium Stocks / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Metals_Report

Amanda Van Dyke of Palisade Capital is confident that China's reforms will ensure that the commodity supercycle will continue for some time to come. In this interview with The Mining Report, Van Dyke argues that investors should worry less about the right balance of specific commodities and more about the right mix of early-stage, development-stage and producing companies. She expands on a dozen she believes have the right stuff to succeed.

The Mining Report: In December Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced a $10 million ($10M) cut in monthly quantitative easing (QE). He also said that interest rates would remain at zero for the foreseeable future. What effects will these decisions have on the economy and on precious metals?

Cocoa Commodity Price Corrective Retracement In Uptrend / Commodities / Cocoa

By: Gregor_Horvat

On the cocoa-futures chart we see a nice uptrend since July. As such, we definitely want to stay with a trend, meaning that we will be anticipating even higher levels in this market. But first we need to identify the end of a corrective retracement that now appears to be in progress. We are talking about red wave 4 that may reach the 2.560/80 area before the uptrend resumes.

OPEC Warned On 2014 Crude Oil Supply Glut / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

TIMELY ADVICE TO OPEC
Leo Drollas, the head of the Saudi-backed, London-based Centre for Global Energy Studies in a 3 December interview with New Europe on the eve of the 4 December OPEC meeting, itemized several supply-side reasons why present high oil prices are not forever. Apart from the USA's record-breaking output of oil driven by its shale-oil production, Drollas said: “Next year, Iraqi oil will increase by 300,000 barrels a day, we think at least, there will be 250,000 more from Venezuela, there will be possibly 1 more million barrels from Iran, when Iran comes back, and Libyan oil should return”.

Silver Game Changer - Institutional Buying / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Steve_St_Angelo

The key to investing in silver is getting in before the big gains are made.  Even though the price of silver is up substantially in the past decade, it has only kept in par with the rise of the cost of energy.

In 2004 the price of a barrel of Brent crude was $38 and silver was $6.67.  Today the price of silver is $20.50 and Brent crude trading at an average $110 for the past month.  Basically, the price of both have tripled in the past decade:

As the Fed runs low on ammunition to further suppress the gold price, Ian Gordon, founder and chairman of the Longwave Group, is extremely bullish on gold. In this interview with The Gold Report, he recounts his history of the manipulation of the gold price and its implications for the global economy. He also expands on research showing that juniors are more effective and cost efficient at making discoveries.

The Gold Report: Gold was among the worst performing assets in 2013. How have its trading patterns and performance over the last two years informed your predictions for 2014?

Gold, Silver and Stock Market Swapping Trends / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The two trend reversals everyone has been waiting a year for are about to take place, but they have not yet started.

While I do think 2014 is the year we see gold, silver, miners and many other commodities rally, it is important to follow the trend and wait for a reversal to form before getting overly excited and long commodities.

Each time we see the daily charts form some type of bullish pattern gold market traders become instantly bullish. And each time this happens they get another reality check about their trading technique of trying to pick a bottom.

Inside Story of Gold Price Manipulation - The Naked Gold Shorts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts and David Kranzler: The deregulation of the financial system during the Clinton and George W. Bush regimes had the predictable result: financial concentration and reckless behavior. A handful of banks grew so large that financial authorities declared them “too big to fail.” Removed from market discipline, the banks became wards of the government requiring massive creation of new money by the Federal Reserve in order to support through the policy of Quantitative Easing the prices of financial instruments on the banks’ balance sheets and in order to finance at low interest rates trillion dollar federal budget deficits associated with the long recession caused by the financial crisis.
