HUI Gold Stocks Seasonal Trend Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter updating my gold-seasonality research last week, I heard from traders wondering how it affects gold stocks.  Since the price of gold is their primary driver, gold seasonality naturally has a major impact on gold-stock price levels.  This is readily apparent in the seasonality of the HUI, the flagship gold-stock index.  As you’d expect, this sector mirrors and amplifies the seasonal swings in the metal it mines.

Don't Sweat the Gold Price Correction / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, BIG GOLD writes: I've told more than one concerned investor that when the gold price falls, they should "come back in three months" and see if they're still worried. The idea is that the daily and monthly gyrations are nothing to fret over, that the price will recover and, in time, fetch new highs.

That advice has worked every time gold underwent any significant correction (except in late 2008, when one had to take a longer view than three months). Here's proof.

By: Jason_Hamlin

Not Your Father's Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom TTT to KFC and onto a very different gold investment market again... SO THIS isn't your father's bull market in gold, and it certainly isn't your grandfather's.

Where gold amid the Great Depression was all about three T's – teeth, trinkets and terror – it had morphed by the end of the 1970s into a finger-lickin' combination of Krugerrands, futures, and those "certificates of confiscation" that were government bonds paying way less than inflation.

Crude Oil Under Pressure / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

NYMEX crude oil has reversed from new recovery highs at 103.37 to test its November support line at 99.20, which so far has contained the pressure.

However, judging by the sharply declining 40-hour RSI momentum gauge, we should expect additional pressure that extends weakness towards a test of much more important support at 98.25/00 next.

Why Uranium Prices Are Rising Again / Commodities / Uranium

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWHAT GOES DOWN, GOES UP
We must start with the ultra-basic fact there is no such thing as an "open market" for uranium. Prices are reported by a select few nuclear-related organizations (like UXC) on the basis of what nuclear operator companies, power plant builders, uranium miners, and certain other players in the nuclear fuel value added chain decide to disclose as the prices paid or received when uranium and its fuel derivatives are handed over from one player to another, weeks after the event.

Jaguar A Sign of Gold Stocks Accumulation / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe were beginning to question our premises... something that almost always signifies a bottom.  But, after riding through a tough year for the gold stocks, despite gold holding steadily between $1,500 to $2,000, it only came naturally that we should re-assess everything.

Were we wrong?  Would the gold shares consistently underperform the metal?  Would the rest of the market continue to ignore the precious metals stocks no matter what happened?

Whirlwind Debt Crisis Ensures Gold $2000 Assured / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat an incredible whirlwind of crisis from seven foul winds around the globe. Most emanate from Europe, which is far from its climax in crisis. Three steps will lead to full blown eruption, the first Italy with rising bond yields and a bank run, the second Spain with rising bond yields and admission that banks are far more insolvent than recognized, and third the failure of all three largest French banks as the principal swine creditor. In fact, a great split has occurred, as France has been cut off from the future world by Germany, which looks East to Russia and China. The Berlin leaders will not be needing French squires to carry their bags, but instead will watch as Paris becomes the appointed leader of the PIIGS.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Energy Opportunities writes: Let's begin by positioning the sector. Investing in a pipeline company is similar to investing in a utility: Like electricity providers, pipeline companies operate in heavily regulated environments, and once they are up and running, pipeline operators enjoy stable cash flows from long-term contracts.

The “Gold Beta” Of Mining Stocks and Why We Continue To Avoid Them / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this article we aim to explain the relationship between the movements in the price of gold and movements in gold stocks.

The financial tool that measures this relationship is the asset’s “Beta”. Beta is a measure of risk and compares the historical return of asset X with the return on the relevant market index over the same time period (eg returns on Google in the past 5 years vs returns on the S&P 500 in the past 5 years).

Will China’s Housing Market Boom Flow to Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

It now appears that the Chinese real estate market will face an inevitable correction.  Property prices in major metro areas have skyrocketed in the past decade, the result of a middle class that grew faster than available real estate, along with sky-high inflation statistics that make real estate an excellent store of value for Chinese investors.
