Gold Primary Trend Continues To Advance / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEducation: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge- Mark Twain

Gold continued to make good headway during the week in spite of warnings that it was overbought and/or a risky venture. The yellow metal began the week on Tuesday at 1,687.60 and closed on Friday at 1,737.60. There were attempts to sell it along the way and they were met with strong buying as has been the custom. In this world of hype and misinformation there is only one real port in the storm, and that’s gold. That didn’t change this week. Gold moves higher in spite of the rhetoric to the contrary and in spite of the fact that few understand what moves it, and even fewer own it. I listen to pundit after pundit call tops to the bull market and yet they forget that the general public doesn’t own any gold. Then they’ll tell you that the public will never buy gold. I maintain that if the public was stupid enough to buy into the NASDAQ craze, and they were, they’ll be smart enough to buy gold.

Silver Price Hits Multi-Month High / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price of silver reached a 5-month high this past week as investor interest seems to have been rekindled in both gold and silver as belief in financial markets increases that the latest round of monetary easing from the Federal Reserve – QE3 – will soon be on its way. Many investors had largely stayed away from silver in recent months after some had got caught up in its volatility. Silver had touched a 30-year high in April 2011 before plunging 35 percent in a few short weeks.

As The Euro Tumbles, Spaniards Look To Gold Bars / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJ. Luis Martin writes: The unremitting deterioration of the eurozone's sovereign debt landscape continues to fuel uncertainties about the longevity of the euro as a strong currency. Such uncertainties are not only leading to capital flight from the EMU's periphery to the core and destabilizing markets worldwide, but they are also beginning to frighten southern European savers into seeking refuge outside their 10-year-old currency.

Gold Bugs and Anti-Gold Bugs, It's a Fight for Civilization / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recent article by David Weiner on the MarketWatch site reminded me of just how weak the economic arguments against the gold standard are. Its title: "A Fool's Gold Standard." I examined this article here.

The arguments by American critics of a gold standard all rest on this unstated presumption.

Gold Stocks Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter weathering a long consolidation followed by a major correction, gold stocks remain deeply out of favor today.  But this bearish sentiment is slowly yielding as gold powers higher in its usual autumn rally.  Gold stocks are starting to show signs of life again.  And after their strong advance since late July, they are now on the verge of a major upside breakout.  Odds are this event will herald a major new upleg.

Commodity Investing in a Time of Rising Resource Nationalism / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Ever-deeper, ever-further” has been the mantra of major natural resource producers over the past decade, as emerging Asia has replaced the US as the world’s single biggest consumer and driven demand to new heights.

This unprecedented expansion hasn’t always driven up costs. In fact, major producers of everything from copper to platinum are uncovering some of the richest reserves yet seen with their massive investment. That’s helped keep a lid on companies’ overall production costs, which in turn has aided further investment. It has, however, elevated resource nationalism risk to heights not seen since the 1970s, when countries such as Chile expropriated assets from investors domestic and foreign.

The Anti-Gold Fool / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Weidner wrote a piece for MarketWatch: "Fool's Gold Standard."

It was standard stuff, i.e., a combination of economic stupidity, attempted cleverness, and the rhetoric of contempt.

It deserves my special treatment, which I reserve for mainstream media journalists who hate the idea of a world not run by the Federal Reserve and who try to be clever. Weidner is not clever.

The Chinese Steel Production Paradox / Commodities / Steel Sector

By: Anthony_David

With demand for steel on the wane, producers across the world have reported losses or sharp drops in profitability. The slowdown in the steel market has been attributed to the slowdown in the Chinese economy, the ongoing euro zone crisis and a sluggish U.S. economy. Though China, the largest consumer of steel has taken measures to boost its economy, it is not expected to result in an increased demand for steel in the short term.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe WHOLESALE gold price reached new 6-month highs in Asian and London trade Thursday morning at $1713 per ounce, rising alongside most other financial assets as traders awaited the European Central Bank's latest policy decision – widely expected to unveil a quantitative easing-style program of buying weaker government bonds.

Gold Price Breakout - But Don't Look for the Gold Standard to Be Reinstated / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the first time in over 30 years, talk of a return to the gold standard has become part of mainstream politics in the United States. Part of the official Republican policy adopted it at the recent Republican Convention and called for the commission to look at reestablishing the link between gold and the U.S. dollar. No doubt that plank was added to soothe supporters of Texas Congressman Ron Paul.
