Time to Stress Test Your Resolve in the Gold Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jeff_Clark

The Casey Research Metals and Mining team has received a number of worried and angry emails about gold's recent rollercoaster ride. I'd like to respond to them.

First, I understand. I'm an investor, too, and I also manage money for family members. We have positions that are underwater, a few dramatically so. Worse, in many cases a full position had been built, seemingly leaving no room to average down and lower our cost basis. This predicament isn't fun, and there are a limited number of options.

Paper and Physical Gold Battling for Supremacy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

The recent drop in gold prices is a confirmation, or a revelation, to investors of the battle between the physical and paper gold markets. In this interview with The Gold Report, Brien Lundin, editor of Gold Newsletter, predicts the timing of a handoff from Asian physical demand to Western speculative demand and assesses the readiness of the junior market to respond to a revival in commodity prices. Plus, in a tip to Father's Day, he discusses his efforts to groom the next generation of investors.

 

The Gold Report: In your latest newsletter, you advocate that gold investors pay close attention to the Federal Reserve meeting taking place on June 18. What are you looking for out of that meeting?

Gold and Silver Tug of War, Blame Bernanke for Market Volatility / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

GOLD PRICES hovered just below $1380 an ounce Wednesday morning in London, with silver trading around $21.80, after the metals failed to break through $1380 and $22 respectively.

European stock markets ticked higher by lunchtime – with the exception of Germany's DAX – regaining some of yesterday's losses, which were followed by sell offs in the US and Asia.

Drillers Pay Hush Money to Keep Their Fracking Toxic Secrets / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Money_Morning

Tara Clarke writes: Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the art of separating oil from rock, has the potential of turning America into the world's top oil and natural gas producer.

But as with any bonanza it has some secrets oil and gas companies want to keep under wraps. And some companies are willing to put some big bucks behind that.

Hydro-Fracking Boom or Bust? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: BATR

The economics of oil or natural gas hydrofracking are seldom analyzed from the perspective of the American consumer. Most discussions focus upon the investment opportunities of specific companies, royalties to leaseholders, windfall tax revenues that state governments will benefit from and the bonanza that local communities will enjoy from the added business activity. Missing is a clear understanding of the pricing points and factors that will determine the actual selling charge and total all inclusive retrieval costs in the domestic market. Will the price of energy drop precipitously or will the net effect be that the native end user sees no direct benefit from the rush to drill?

Gold - Saving Real Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: James_Turk

Up until the late 1960s, it was considered prudent for everyone to have some savings. By forgoing consumption, savings gave the ability to consume more at a later date through the accumulation of interest income.

This result is similar to what one hopes to achieve with an investment, but savings and investments should not be confused. A person uses money to make an investment, whereas saving is the process of accumulating money itself. Thus, you put your money at risk when making an investment, which hopefully will become a wealth-creating asset. In contrast, savings are meant to be riskless.

Gold Downtrend Continuation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: ForexPros

A sharp reversal from 1423 through the lower side of a corrective channel suggests that a rally from 1337 is complete, and that the market is headed lower. We expect further weakness on gold for this week, ideally close to 1340 week with impulsive personality. The trend is bearish; below 1423 is critical level.

Gold Falls to 3-Week Low on Talk of Slowing QE / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ben_Traynor

SPOT GOLD fell to three week lows below $1370 an ounce Tuesday, as stocks and commodities also fell amid ongoing speculation over when the US Federal Reserve might begin reducing the size of its quantitative easing program.

"Gold remains bearish while trading below the $1424 current June high," reckons Commerzbank senior technical analyst Axel Rudolph.

Diane Alter writes: The last several months have been tough on gold prices, but gold bugs haven't lost their insatiable appetite for the yellow metal. With gold officially in a bear market, demand is surging at today's bargain prices.

Gold demand is especially strong in India, where gold is the investment of choice among consumers. India's gold imports reached 162 tons in May, almost twice the average level.

Solid U.S. Non Farm Payrolls Will Send Gold and Silver to New Lows / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Bob_Kirtley

With US Non-Farm Payrolls coming in at a solid +175k, gold and silver prices are set to take another leg lower as a complete absence of additional quantitative easing removes the need to buy gold as a hedge against further easing of US monetary policy. We therefore see both gold and silver prices taking another large leg lower in coming months, with both precious metals hitting new multi-year lows before too long.

June Silver's Weakest Seasonal Month Presents Buying Opportunity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clive_Maund

While silver is on the defensive short-term there is plenty of evidence that over the medium and longer-term it is setting up for a powerful rally. COT's and sentiment are already very bullish indeed, which means that when the turn does come, the rally is likely to be accentuated by panic short covering.

On its 6-month chart we can see how silver is being pressured lower by its falling 50-day moving average coming into play overhead, although the increasingly large gap between the 50 and 200-day moving averages is indicative of an oversold state that increasingly calls for reversal. Volume is still predominantly negative, suggesting lower prices dead ahead. After that we can expect reversal. There was a pronounced bull hammer in silver in the middle of May towards the intraday low of which there is quite strong support - silver may drop no longer than the low of this hammer.

Gold Major Reversal Imminent, Rare Opportunity to Buy at Ridiculously Low Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clive_Maund

We are very close to or at a major bottom in gold and silver now, regardless of the potential for another short term downleg. This is made plain by the charts we are going to look at in this update. COTs and sentiment are now at extraordinary extremes not seen in the entire history of this bullmarket. This means that when the turn really comes we are likely to see a scorching rally which will be driven by massive short covering that will leave most investors standing, mouths agape.

On its 6-month chart we can see gold starting to be pressured lower again by its falling 50-day moving average, after a feeble recovery rally. Although it looks set to continue lower short-term probably into the support approaching its April panic lows, for reasons that we will come to later there is considered to be a fair chance that these lows will hold, or that if the price does break to new lows, it won't be by much before it reverses to the upside after setting a bear trap. The position of the MACD indicator, which has largely neutralized following oversold extremes, certainly allows for further downside, but at the same time gold's overall oversold condition is shown by the large gap that has opened up between the price and its 50-day moving average, and the 200-day moving average quite far above.

Silver Price Cycles, Forcasting the Next Tops and Bottoms / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DeviantInvestor

Silver prices peaked in April 2011 and dropped about 60% over the next 25 months. Sentiment by almost any measure is currently terrible. Few are interested in silver; most have lost money (on paper) if they bought in the last two and one half years, and the emotional pain seems considerable. It reminds me of the years after the NASDAQ crash in 2000.

So will silver drop under $15 or rally back above $50?

The GOLD PRICE rallied from a 1-week low at $1376 per ounce Monday morning in London, edging back up to $1383 as world stock markets rose.

Silver fell within 20¢ of mid-May's 30-month low, before rallying to $21.80 per ounce.

Commodity prices fell after weaker-than-expected Chinese industrial data. US Treasury bonds also slipped in price once again, nudging interest rates on 10-year debt up to 2.17%.

A Huge Liquid Natural Gas LNG Energy Boom Has Begun / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: Oh, the law of unintended consequences and the opportunities it brings.

Thanks to the new standard of Keynesian Abenomics, the Nikkei has blasted 47% higher since November. The Yen has lost about 25% against the U.S. dollar in the same time.

While we don't know what the future will hold for these trends, there's something else going on that will not fade quickly: The weak Yen has made imports to Japan a whole lot more expensive...including energy.

Notes on ‘Gold Confiscation Possibility Warning’ / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Submissions

Mark Blair writes: in his essay ‘Gold Confiscation Possibility Warning,’ Jeff Thomas asks for opinions, a most refreshing change.

My thesis is, paradoxically, that Mr. Thomas could well be right about the INTENTION of the government to confiscate gold; but that the U.S. state lacks the power at this point to manage the process to completion. Here is my reasoning:

Peak Oil - A Simple, Perfect Lie for Politicians / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: DailyWealth

Porter Stansberry writes: Peak Oil was a fantastic lie.

The idea was that our ability to discover and produce higher amounts of hydrocarbon-based energy had peaked and would be forever in decline. This "inevitable" decline in energy production would destroy the modern world, as all the luxuries and technologies that we enjoy today (such as cheap electricity and automobiles) rely on these fuels.

I believe historians will look back and marvel over how we could imagine the world would run out of oil... and the incredible mania that thinking produced in the oil markets in the mid-2000s.
