Recent Gold Price Rally A Sign of Strength? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

According to Reuters, gold is often seen as an inflation hedge (while it is really a system hedge in our opinion) and this safe-haven investment, has fallen nearly 20% this year on fears of an end to easy central bank money, which had propelled it to record highs in 2011.

On Wednesday, after the Fed said it would stick to its stimulus plan for now, the yellow metal gained more than 4%, leading the rally in commodities. Yesterday, gold rose to a new one-week high and extended the previous session's rally, lifted by technical buying and short-covering.

Fed Decision to Delay QE Tapering Unleashes Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

The Federal Reserve shocked the financial world this week, defying universal expectations.  It failed to start reducing the pace of its third quantitative-easing campaign’s debt monetizations, delaying the long-anticipated QE3 taper indefinitely.  This surprise ignited sharp moves in nearly all major markets, but gold’s was certainly the most impressive.  It rocketed higher on the Fed’s startling new paradigm shift.

Silver Major Bottom Pattern is Completing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clive_Maund

Much of what is written in the parallel Gold Market update applies equally to silver and that will not be repeated here.

Silver's major reversal pattern, which, like gold's, is a Head-and-Shoulders bottom, is different to gold's in the detail that it is flat-topped - the "neckline" or top boundary of the pattern is a horizontal band of resistance. Otherwise they are broadly similar in meaning, which is hardly surprising as gold and silver are "joined at the hip", the big difference from an investor's point of view being that silver is a leveraged play on a gold move.

Fed Refusal to Taper is Good News for Gold Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clive_Maund

That was a huge announcement by the Fed Wednessday (18th) to keep monetary policy the same and the effect on the markets was immediate and dramatic. To say that this announcement was gold friendly would have to be one of the understatements of the year. Gold soared making its biggest one-day gain for 15-months, silver rose sharply and Precious Metals stocks took off like a rocket. This action marks the start of a major sectorwide uptrend. The dollar tanked as the Fed's ongoing policy amounts to a continuation of its long-term policy to destroy the currency that has actually been in force with great effect since 1913 - just ask an old timer how much coffee he could buy for a dollar.

What's The Indian Government Doing to Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Difference between India & China

While both nations have been touted as the fasted growing nations in Asia, there are stark differences between the two nations that are coming to the fore now.

The first is that in China, the population has a fear of gov't and the dangers of disobeying it. After nearly 48 years of intense pressure and 're-modeling' of the thinking of the Chinese people, the Chinese are now a highly regimented people who appear to enjoy hard work, have a tacit obedience of gov't and appreciate the lift in their standard of living. They appear to be fully supportive of the extraordinary urbanization of the country and the present reality that nearly three quarters of the country have a much higher standard of living than they have ever experienced. The nation is headed towards becoming the economic powerhouse of the world before 2020.

Gold Lust: A Report From the Road / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Investment_U

Sean Brodrick writes: I’m traveling around Nevada this week, scouting gold miners. Nevada is one of the best places on Earth to be mining right now. And as a geologist reminded me yesterday, all the biggest mines in the world started out small, just like the up-and-comers I’m visiting.

Some of them could be among tomorrow’s giants. I’ll be reporting on the companies I discover in my new advisory service, which will launch later this year. In the meantime, I’ll post video interviews I conduct with mining executives on InvestmentU.com. To see the interviews I’ve done so far, click here.

'QE Unlimited' Sparks 'Risk-On Party' as Dollar Sinks, Gold Jumps / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

WORLD stock markets, foreign currencies and commodities extended yesterday's jump versus the US Dollar in Asia and London on Thursday morning, with gold regaining the $1370 level it leapt to after the Federal Reserve voted not to trim its quantitative easing program.

Defying the expectations built since April, the Fed gave financial markets what one FX strategist called "a massive green light for a risk-on party."

Next week the FOMC will meet for one their eight scheduled meetings. It is this particular meeting that has had traders, market commentators and investors almost in frenzy as they try to predict the outcome.

Damascus Dodges a bullet, Make This Crude Oil Move Immediately / Commodities / Crude Oil

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Damascus may have dodged a bullet (or a cruise missile), but nothing else has changed very much. Not in terms of risk.

That explains why the "Syrian Premium" remains. It may be slightly reduced, as you'll see. But it is likely to stay with us even after the threat of a military solution has been averted.

The Shale Gas Fantasy and Profit When the Bubble Bursts / Commodities / Shale Oil and Gas

By: The_Energy_Report

The numbers don't lie—but politicians and industry bigwigs do. While pundits still wax poetic about an era of American energy independence, Bill Powers, author of the book "Cold, Hungry and in the Dark: Exploding the Natural Gas Supply Myth," sees productivity plummeting in almost every major shale play. In this interview with The Energy Report, Powers tells us to forget about LNG exports and a manufacturing boom and get positioned for a bust. How? Invest in energy equities. Powers names his favorites for maximum returns when the bubble bursts.

The Great Gold Heist of 2013: Exploding Demand & Falling Supply / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Steve_St_Angelo

No one was prepared for the orchestrated take-down of the price of gold and silver in the first half of 2013.  Forecasted supply was generously overstated while demand... grossly under-estimated.  Thus, the tremendous imbalance had to be resolved which came to be known as "The Great Gold Heist of 2013."

Not only were the investors taken by surprise from the huge price declines, but so were the Fed and member bullion banks -- one by price movement and the other by huge demand.  To understand why I believe there was a gold heist, we have to dissect through some of the just released official data.

In the following part of the article we will discuss what’s likely to happen if the Fed simply continues the QE program and informs about it in a direct way.

Silver and Gold Price Manipulation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Price manipulation is a time-honored tradition in structured finance. There will be abuse anytime there is a price “fixing” or a price set on the basis of a trade.

Instances of abuse are the dragons that “regulators” are supposed to constantly slay. When regulators are too slow, unwilling, or unable to do the job—and if you haven’t been paying attention, regulators have been all three for decades—market professionals take matters into their own hands.

The WHOLESALE price of gold halved an early 1.5% rally lunchtime Tuesday in London, dropping back to $1315 per ounce as world stock markets fell ahead of tomorrow's long-awaited US Federal Reserve decision.

Silver reversed all of an earlier 1.8% climb, falling back below $22 per ounce.

UK and Eurozone government bonds slipped in price, but US Treasuries rose – pushing interest rates down for a fifth session – after new data said US consumer prices rose less quickly than analysts forecast in August.

Gold Stocks Trend Forecast Into 2014 - Historic Buying Opportunity Coming / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Recently we’ve been writing that another opportunity is coming to buy gold stocks. While this is still the case, the facts have changed and we have to tweak our view. The evidence argues that the mining stocks are now likely to retest their lows. Rather than that buying opportunity being days away, we now feel it is weeks away. Investors and speculators need to have more patience. In this missive we discuss why a retest is coming but why it could mark a final bottom and a tremendous buying opportunity.
