Falling Inflation, The Most Bullish Sign For Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst many may argue that gold is an inflation hedge and therefore inflation is bullish for gold, in reality the dynamics at play here are not that simple.

In our view, gold is a currency. Therefore fluctuations in its price are largely based on its perceived value relative to other currencies. We would not suggest that its role as an inflation hedge is a primary reason for being long gold, since there are far more direct and efficient ways to hedge against inflation risk in this modern financial environment. We do however see currency devaluation as a primary reason to own gold. If one thought the Yen was going to strengthen against the dollar, then one would move USD holdings into JPY. If one thought the Yen was going to weaken against sterling, then one move JPY holdings into GBP. This environment is unique as across the world governments and central banks are trying to lower the value of their currencies. Therefore there is nowhere to go, except for gold which cannot be printed in an attempt to erode its value.

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNothing much has really happened since my last post a few weeks back.  Yes, gold went down a little and up a little but no real move of significance.  I’m not yet sure if such lack of real action is positive or negative.  Only time will tell.  In the mean time let’s see how we ended the week.

Why Gold and Silver Stocks Are Likely to Rally from Here… / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs Greece the canary in the coal mine? Less than a week after European leaders crossed the T’s and dotted the I’s on the debt-restructuring plan for Greece, the prime minister's ruling party called for a surprise referendum on the E.U. debt deal. Then on Thursday he called it off.  Sovereign debt and fiat currencies are all paper.
 
All that is happening only heightens talk about gold as money. But first, let’s have a definition of money, it being a subject that interests almost everyone on the planet. Like Voltaire said: “When it’s a question of money everyone is of the same religion.”

Is Europe Warming Up Gold for its Final Act? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

On Tuesday, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou surprised European leaders when he called for a referendum on the new aid package for Greece.  Since then, the referendum has already been cancelled.  It was the latest drop in the roller coaster ride that’s called Europe.  Concerns continue to mount on how Europe to fix Greece, and after that Italy.  Unfortunately, between all the headlines and rumors concerning Europe, nothing has really changed.  Europe is in a world of hurt that will lead to either a total overhaul of the financial system, or more money printing.  Considering gold futures hit a six-week high at $1,765 on Thursday, precious metal investors are preparing for the latter.

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The US Mint released its silver sales figures, relaying to investors what was already known—investors want silver, and silver only.
The Mint ran into problems during September, taking more orders for coins than it had available in uncirculated condition. As of October 21, the problem in supplying the market with uncirculated coins has been smoothed out, and the market remains hungry for silver coins of all types, except those closest to numismatic coins.

How Long Will Gold Miners Lag Bullion Prices? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Eric_McWhinnie

As we have previously discussed, the gold miners continue to lag behind bullion prices. In the past six months, the SPDR Gold Shares ETF has increased by nearly 10%, while the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF has declined by 5%. The disconnect continues as traders feel uneasy about equities and elevated gold prices. When it comes to panic and confusion, cash is still king on Wall Street. However, another well-known investor is endorsing gold mining companies, a sign that gold miners may finally catch up to bullion prices.

Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Fred_Sheehan

compelling argument to steer clear of gold and silver miners is their poor management. "Those companies are run by a bunch of miners. They don't know how to manage a company." Most often this criticism refers to gold miners' seemingly insatiable desire to issue new shares. By issuing new shares, a company reduces the value of shares already in the hands of the public. For instance, a company has issued 10 million shares of common stock. Now, it sells another 10 million shares. The profit-per-share to current shareholders (before the new issue) is cut by one-half.
