Silver Trend Rethink on Mounting Deflation Threat / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have had a major rethink since the last update was posted, which was one reason why no update was posted last weekend. This rethink has been occasioned by the rapid tilt towards deflation of the past couple of weeks. In the last update you may recall that we assumed that politicians and world leaders would follow the easiest route of QE which would lead in the direction of hyperinflation, but we really should know by now that you can't assume anything in this business. For sure, most of them would like to follow this route, for it buys them the maximum time before they end up at the end of a rope, but unfortunately for them they are losing control and things are starting to fall apart at alarming rate.

Gold Caution on Building Deflationary Forces / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has behaved as predicted in the last update, which was two weeks ago. It advanced a little further into nearby resistance, before reacting back quite sharply on Thursday. However, whereas in the last update we were looking to buy on this dip in the expectation of renewed advance, we are now more cautious, due to mounting evidence that politicians and world leaders may soon be overwhelmed by deflationary forces despite their strenuous efforts to keep them at bay by means of endless QE.

Will Dividends Make Mining Shares Glitter More Than Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf late we've seen clever moves by some precious metals mining companies to link the dividends they pay to the income they achieve on a quarterly basis. These include Silver Wheaton, Newmont, Hecla - no doubt to be followed by many more. Why have they decided to do this? The answer goes back to why we invest in the first place. We do so to make money to provide income and capital in the future. To do this we must maximize our total returns from those investments. Investments therefore must be money-making machines, not just good miners or growing companies.

Go for the Gold: Metal to Rise as Financial Tactics Fail / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Barry_Elias

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwelve years ago, Goldman Sachs converted from a private partnership to a publicly traded company.

This enabled them to take more extreme risk at the expense of others (e.g., clients, taxpayers). Co-CEO Jon Corzine was instrumental in consummating this conversion, receiving roughly $400 million from the initial public offering (IPO).

The Electric Car Paradox: Can We Switch To Electric Cars ?  / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe simple answer is no - and the complicated answer is also no.

Consumers in almost any motorized car loving country, now including China and India whose car industries have until recently shown straight-line upward growth (with China already vastly outdistancing the USA by car output) have a common complaint at the fuel filling station. They whine and complain about oil prices because they buy gasoline and diesel fuel almost daily, at least regularly, and are keenly aware of price changes. These are usually upward.

By the end of September, the quarterly average price of gold increased 39% to $1,702.12, compared to $1,226.75 in last year’s third quarter.

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.

Gold Demand Hits New Record with Central Bank Buying Up Sixfold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jason_Hamlin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold demand in the third quarter of 2011 reached 1,053.9 tonnes, an increase of 6% compared to the same period last year. This equates to $57.7 Billion, an all-time high in value terms.

According to the World Gold Council’s Gold Demand Trends report for Q3 2011, this increase was driven by investment demand which rose by 33% year-on-year to 468.1 tonnes, generating record quarterly demand of $25.6 Billion.

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.

Is It a Good Time to Invest in Oil and Gas Pipeline Companies? / Commodities / Oil Companies

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.
