Jumpstarting The Flight From Oil: Gas To Liquids / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Andrew_McKillop

GAS - GAS - GAS
The world was supposed to be at the brink of the "Gas Cliff" as recently as 2006. Writers working that doomster theme, such as Julien Darley and Michael Ruppert, even Naom Chomsky roared that conventional natural gas resources were depleting fast, especially in the US, and gas prices could only explode. Aided by events such as hurricane Katrina and by excited Nymex traders, US gas futures were able to top $15 per million BTU several times in 2005 and 2006. Today in early December 2012 Nymex gas futures struggle to beat $3.75 per million BTU.

Central Banks Hedge Their Bets With Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: John_Browne

Gold appears to be headed for an impressive price appreciation for the second half of 2012. Since the beginning of July, gold is up almost 10 over the same time frame. What is noteworthy here is that in recent months, fears of a worldwide recession have increased markedly. It used to be considered axiomatic that recession created adverse conditions for commodities (a reality that has helped push down the price of crude oil thus far in 2012). How then can we understand the movement in gold?

What Happens to Gold If the U.S. Dollar Collapses? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Today’s essay is the first one in our two-part commentary on U.S. debt and the dollar collapse.

 

On numerous occasions we have gone back in our commentaries to the year 1971 and U.S. President Richard Nixon’s decision to cut off the ties between the greenback and gold. Today, we revisit the topic once more and check what kind of implications it has for the price of the yellow metal.

More Signs of Silver Bullion Shortage / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: GoldSilverWorlds

“This is the definition of a silver shortage – nothing to do with the physical amount of the substance being in deficit, but people’s psychological intention not to sell. The extent to which a shortage is developing is witnessed by the extent of backwardation.”

The Significant Impact of U.S. Crude Oil Production / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Frank_Holmes

The Eagle Ford shale formation lies south of our headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, giving the U.S. Global investment team a firsthand, tacit perspective on the oil and gas industry's growing natural resources phenomenon. We've witnessed how the oil activity is boosting the local economy with solid-paying jobs, a healthy housing market and strong consumer sentiment, as oil giants such as Schlumberger and Halliburton take a bigger stake in the area.

Gold Remains in Long Run Uptrend / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ben_Traynor

SPOT MARKET gold prices fell back below $1715 an ounce Monday morning in London, more-or-less in line with where they were two weeks ago after failing to hold gains made during Asian trading.

"Gold is still following its long term uptrend from 2008 lows," say technical analysts at Scotiabank, "with support from the uptrend at $1632."

The Coming Silver Price Eruption / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Alasdair_Macleod

There was a degree of predictability about the knockdown in gold and silver at the US futures market (Comex) last Wednesday. The reason is that the Commercials (together the producers, processers, fabricators, bullion banks and swap dealers) have large short positions, so they have a vested interest in lower prices. This is particularly noticeable in silver, which is shown below.

Gold, Silver and Miners in Stage 1 Accumulation Mode / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Chris_Vermeulen

We don’t hear much about gold and silver anymore on the news. This time last year you could not go 5 minutes without a TV or radio station talking about them. Why is this? Simple really, precious metals have been building a Stage 1 Basing Pattern for the last 12 months. This boring sideways trading range is how the market gets most of those long holders out of an investment before it starts another move up. The saying is “If the market doesn’t shake you out, it will wait you out”.

WTI Crude Oil Price To Test $65 Level in 2013 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

WTI closed November just shy of $89 a barrel on hopes of an improving economy. I think there is an argument for an improving economy in 2013, but it is just too early to tell how things are going to come together with the economy, and all the ramifications of basically an anti-business and social agenda political leadership of the last four years.

Otherwise it was an uneventful day, as the true money believers placed another appendage in the dike of their illusions, and hoped for the best.

Gold and Silver Smart Money Exits Too Soon / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

“Too little, too late” could well describe the current plight of the 'smart money' silver investor, since many seem to be arriving late to the party when the market has not even yet entered the final phase for investment demand in either silver or gold.

Of course, some investment money has trickled in to the precious metals, but to the average investor, prices are still correcting and the market’s fundamentals remain very much misunderstood.

China Silver Demand — One Step Closer to the Edge / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The Hong Kong based Chinese Gold and Silver Exchange Society or CGSE announced recently that it will launch Yuan-based silver spot trading in Hong Kong in the first part of next year. The exchange says growing demand for silver has prompted the decision.

This move shows that China is inching closer and closer to the silver market and is quietly nibbling away at Western demand for silver.

The Gold Price Barometer / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Brian_Bloom

There are some very respected technical analysts who are calling for an exploding gold price and there are also a few respected technical analysts who disagree with that view. One analysis that recently arrived in my inbox shows that gold’s On-Balance-Volume chart is giving sell signals.

From a technical perspective, if one takes emotion out of the equation, there are three charts that seem to me to be of importance (four if one includes that OBV chart which I am unable to reproduce for copyright reasons. It was produced by Kimble Charting):

Gold Miners Downsizing Capital Expenses for Smart Growth 2013 / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: The_Gold_Report

 

 

Smart companies are beginning to ignore analysts' insistence that production growth is always good, and to focus instead on growing their margins by lowering capital expenses. This is good news to U.S. Global Investors Inc.'s Brian Hicks, co-manager of the Global Resources Fund, and Ralph Aldis, senior mining analyst and portfolio manager of the Gold and Precious Metals Fund and World Precious Minerals Fund. Learn what kinds of companies attract the interest of these active managers in this Gold Report interview.

 

The Gold Report: The Nov. 1 edition of Frank Talksuggested that gold equities generally perform poorly in a U.S. election year but rebound strongly the following year. Do you expect a better year for gold and gold equities in 2013?

Gold Stocks Bullshine Investing / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Richard_Mills

In 2001 and 2002 miners were producing gold for sub-$180 cash costs - the operational cost of the mine divided by the ounces of production. By 2005 cash costs had risen 45 percent to US$250. Data from GFMS shows world gold production costs for the first half of 2009 averaged $457/oz. Average cash costs in 2011 were US$657.

According to the Thomson Reuters GFMS’s Gold Survey 2012 global gold mine production was flat (output rose 0.1 percent to 1,366 metric tons) in the first half of 2012. The average grade of ore processed globally dropped 23 percent from 2005 through the end of last year and is forecast to decline another four percent in 2012.
