Gold Nearing Downside Exhaustion / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although right now we only have anecdotal evidence that that SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) might be making a significant multi-month corrective low in the vicinity of 148.50/25, all of my timeframe work from 5 minutes through the enclosed daily suggest that the price structure is nearing downside exhaustion.

Gold’s D-Wave Downtrend Forecast for 2012 Confirmed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the move below $1535 this morning gold has confirmed that it is still moving down into a D-Wave bottom. There has been some question as to whether or not the D-Wave had bottomed in September. The penetration of that intermediate low this morning confirms that the D-Wave did not end during the overnight selloff on September 26.

Gold Breaks Lehman's Uptrend on Forced Inter Bank Crisis Sales / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe WHOLESALE MARKET gold price fell further on Thursday in London, hitting its lowest London Gold Fix since 8th July at $1537.50 per ounce – 19% below Sept's record high – on what dealers called "long liquidation" and "pressure" from the Eurozone debt crisis.

New laws in Japan were also blamed for forced sales during Asian trade, with bullion dealers obliged to report all physical transactions above ¥2 million ($25,600) to the tax authorities starting New Year's Day.

Silver Awaiting Pivot Low / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Since its Sept-Oct recovery rally peak at $35.71, spot silver prices have stair-stepped to the downside towards a retest of the Sep 26 spike low at $26.02. If violated and sustained, this should trigger a final bout of long liquidation that presses silver into a minimum target zone in the vicinity of $25.00, but possibly into the $22.00-$20.00 target support zone, where I will be expect price stability ahead of the emergence of a sharp recovery rally period.

Gold and Silver Bear, India Massive Keynesian Economic Failure / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 has been a truly enlightening year. We learned that change had not arrived, despite all our hope. We learned that the U.S. Congress cannot be trusted to prevent the financial calamity which lies ahead for the U.S. But most important, we learned that Keynesianism, a form of socialism taught in modern day academia, has been a complete failure, and perhaps a complete hoax.

CO2 Emissions Allowances, Get Ready For A Tumble In Hot Air Credits / Commodities / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope's mandatory CO2 emissions allowances (called EUAs), and their alphabet soup of derived and related "financial instruments" have traced a boom and bust in notional or paper "value" similar to the paper shuffled by the USA's voluntary scheme for "monetizing" carbon. In both cases the supposed goal was generating the financial support needed for Energy Transition away from fossil energy to low carbon green energy. At a moment when the European Commission and the EU's investmenk bank the EIB are possibly taking actions which can implode the European carbon finance system, one of the many ironies is that 2011 in Europe was one of the warmest, or least cold years ever recorded. Despite this, restoring credibility and more important, the cash flows needed to keep high-living carbon traders at their playstations rolling the dice, is unlikely.

London Gold and Silver Prices Catch Up with Indian Slump / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF physical gold bullion fell again as London re-opened Wednesday after the Christmas and Boxing Day holidays, dropping to two-week lows against all major currencies in what dealers called a "very quiet session".

London dealers returning to work caught up with a 1.4% drop for the week so far, plus news of falling industrial output in Japan, seasonally low jewelry demand in Indian – the world's No.1 gold buying nation – and also a new edict from the People's Bank of China, banning all non-official gold trading exchanges in the world's No.2 gold consuming country.

China Cracks Down on Gold Exchanges / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Governments hate competition. Due to record breaking gold prices this year, more unauthorized gold exchanges have been created to capitalize on gold fever. However, China regulators are not happy about the competition.

A joint statement issued by People’s Bank of China, the Ministry of Public Security and other regulators recently announced, “No local authority, institution or individual is allowed to set up gold exchanges.” In essence, gold exchanges in China, except for two in Shanghai are to be banned. The joint statement also explained that the Shanghai Gold Exchange and the Shanghai Futures Exchange are sufficient enough to meet domestic investor demand for spot gold and futures trading.

Gold Might Have Already Hit Rock Bottom / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you’re looking for a post-Christmas read, take a look at a book called “The Great Stagnation” by Tyler Cowen of George Mason University whose theme is laid out in its subtitle: “How America ate all the low-hanging fruit of modern history, got sick and will (eventually) feel better.”

The interesting aspect of this book is Prof Cowen’s explanation on how the US got into its predicament.

Oil Crisis In 2012 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWill we have a massive oil crisis in 2012 ? If it happened, what would it do to the struggling global economy ?

One other question is easier to answer: can we compare this almost certain coming crisis with the Hunt for the Quark, snark or Higgs boson ? Defenders of the claim the Higgs boson exists only have their research budgets and scientific kudos to worry about, but defenders of the present de facto claim that global oil supply is secure "because of high oil prices" face a much more complex challenge.

Why Buy Gold Now, Forecast $4,500 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the economic front we see that for the month of October personal income had gained 0.4% while spending had increased 0.1%. For November, economists polled by MarketWatch had expected personal income to gain 0.2%, and for spending to also rise 0.2%. Meanwhile, there was no growth in November for the price index for personal consumption expenditures, though this inflation gauge is up 2.5% from the prior year. The core inflation reading, which excludes volatile food and energy costs, rose 0.1% in November, matching economists' expectations. Compared with the prior year, core inflation is up 1.7%. The personal-saving rate declined to 3.5% in November from 3.6% in October, and down considerably from the 7.1% rates we saw during the summer. Finally we see that credit card debt increased considerably during the month of October.

Gold Tilts Towards a Short-term Move Up / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy anyone would rather stuff their Christmas stockings with fiat currency than with physical gold is beyond understanding. To us “dash for cash” seems rash.

There has certainly been very little Christmas cheer for gold bulls recently. The beating is tough, but it’s not the first time we’ve experienced it, nor is it likely to be the last in a secular bull market that has still has years to run. Gold takes four steps forward and then three back. We just have to stay in the game.
