By: Bob_Kirtley

Twelve months on, the fallout from the Fukushima disaster (nuclear and financial) has subsided and the uranium sector has started to see some positive signs once again. The number of reactors globally is expected to increase in coming years, and Japan is even seriously considering reopening some if not all of its reactors.

Gold Stocks Gaining Credibility / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile gold equities continue to trail the gold price, junior stocks are gaining traction according to Doug Groh, co-portfolio manager and senior analyst with Tocqueville Asset Management. He believes investors should not let the market's risk aversion keep them out of a stock picker's market. The trick, Groh reveals in this exclusive Gold Report interview, is to pick managements, not jurisdictions.

Companies Mentioned: Abzu Gold Ltd. - ATAC Resources Ltd. - Bear Creek Mining Corp. - Detour Gold Corp. - Gold Resource Corporation - Osisko Mining Corp. - Randgold Resources Ltd.

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Surging central bank gold demand adds new dimension to bull market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe longer-term trends in gold's supply-demand fundamentals point to a potentially explosive market situation in the years ahead. In short, the supply trend is static to shrinking while global demand trends, particularly from investors and central banks, appear to be in a period of rapid expansion. What's more the political, financial and economic dynamics driving these trends are not likely to undergo any significant reversal anytime soon for reasons explored below.

Gold Remarkable Reversal on Euro Jitters Flight to Safety / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

Gold Moves Higher For No Particular Reason Yet Seen / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jesse

I am checking various rumours, but so far nothing in the news can explain this remarkable short term rally in gold.

This is a significant divergence from the equity markets. Silver also has lagged a bit.

I would not chase it at this point, although that is easier to say as I did some additional buying earlier today and then went out for a walk and some light reading on the patio. Spring is in the air.

Managing Gold Investors Expectations: Why Gold Should Thrive / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was a challenging week for gold investors. Although the yellow metal has been on a spectacular 11-year bull run, recent strength in the economy has some thinking gold's heyday is over.

As I often say, investing, like life, is about managing expectations--even throughout gold's decade-long rise, price action over the short term can go both ways. It helps to look at what happens after short-term drops. For example, looking at the past decade of one-day 5 percent declines in gold, you can see that this event is pretty rare. In 2006, gold dropped more than 5 percent in a day only two times. In 2008, there were three such events. Another one occurred at the end of this February.

Gold Prices Set for Further Fall / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the not-so-distant past arguing that precious metals prices were setup to fall generally elicited a response which was not real pleasant. In fact, during gold's infamous bull market rally on several occasions I called for pullbacks which regardless of the accuracy of my call generated hate mail that seemingly never ended.

Fast forward to the present and hardcore gold bugs remain transfixed on the idea that precious metals must rise. The gold bull market has ended, at least for now and those still holding the bag are looking at large losses from the all time highs set back in 2011.

Gold Stocks Failed Bottom Initiates Start of Capitulation / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was only a week ago we felt the gold stocks had a great chance of putting in a bottom. Monday supported our thesis but after Tuesday's action and Bernanke's jawboning it was apparent that the gold shares were in for a very difficult period. We immediately went long DUST to hedge long positions and trimmed some of our most vulnerable positions. We aren't day traders personally or professionally (in our service) but sometimes you have to be considering the day to day volatility in this sector. Having accounted for the short-term, the next move is to gameplan for a potential major bottom in the sector.

Gold Stocks: Timing Your Next Purchase / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold prices continue to trade in the $1800.00/oz and $1550.00/oz range exhibiting scant regard for the current state of world. The Arab Spring looks set to run and run as the dethronement of each leader creates a power vacuum and the opportunity for one of the many political factions involved to make their move and gain control. The North Koreans are about to launch a long range missile, albeit for peaceful purposes, the news of this action as put the Chinese on red alert. (please excuse the pun) Turkey is now seeing an increase in the influx of refugees at their border with Syria as the carnage continues there, despite the protestations of many nations.
