The Gold and Silver Precious Metals Tsunami / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldRunner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA tsunami doesn’t start with a bang, but with a whimper.  The first sign is a little hump in the water way out in the distance that is barely notable.  Anyone who catches a glimpse of it simply continues to expect the day to be the same as the last many days - calm and beautiful waters along the shore.  This is the point where we are, today in the Precious Metals (PM) sector. Many have seen the little roll of water out in the distance as Gold edged up in the first move of a more parabolic slope, yet most investors are mired in the same expectations of yesterday - a return for Gold to correct down into a lower base.

Silver Looking Increasingly Ominous, Crash Ahead? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe picture for silver looks increasingly ominous and it is suspected that we are close to a major breakdown that will lead to a violent plunge, of a similar nature to that which occurred early in May. The picture has darkened over the past week with increasingly bearish action by gold and a major dollar breakout, that was predicted on the site a few days before it occurred in the article The Great Dollar Shocker.

Gold Continues to Mark Out a Top / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold continues to look as though it is marking out an intermediate top area, with several additional bearish developments having manifested over the past week. One is the powerful breakout in the dollar, which was predicted on the site in the article The Great Dollar Shocker just days before it occurred. Could the dollar and gold rise at the same? yes, they could, especially if the dollar's gain is largely due to the demise of the euro, but a strong dollar does mean that gold will be battling headwinds.

Gold Stocks Prognosis: Catalyst, Please / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, BIG GOLD writes: It’s probably the #1 question on every gold investor’s mind right now: Why are gold stocks underperforming gold? Aren’t they supposed to bring us leverage to the gold price?

Yes, they are, and their performance been both disappointing and puzzling. There are some exceptions, to be sure, but in the majority of cases the stocks are lagging the metal. And it’s been happening for most of the year. What’s going on?

Gold and Silver Final Parabolic Upswing? Comparison of Two Bull Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a nutshell, this week we decided to provide you with the analysis of the previous bull market in the precious metals. The goal is to see how the current bull market compares with the previous one. After all, since history rhymes, looking at the analogy should provide us with clues as to what can happen next. In particular, we will be able to estimate if we’re currently on a verge of the final parabolic upswing and if this bull market is likely to end soon.

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. DOLLAR gold prices plunged sharply Friday morning in London, hitting a low of $1826 per ounce – 4.9% down on Tuesday's all-time high – while stocks and commodities also fell and European government bonds gained.

Gold Consolidates Gains while Gold Equities Outperform / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

In only two months Gold surged from $1500 to $1900/oz. Over the past few weeks Gold has remained range bound from $1750-$1900. The longer Gold holds this range then the more optimistic we can be. That $400 move was not a parabolic blowoff top but the initiation of an acceleration. This consolidation is likely to develop into a bullish flag. While Gold consolidates, the gold equities have taken the leadership role. The large caps have broken out from a 10-month consolidation to a new all time high. The junior golds are not far behind.

When Yield is Non-Existent, Gold and Silver are In Play / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Personal and institutional finance differ in the most important way; personal finance assumes a limited lifespan, whereas institutional finance operates on the framework of a perpetual life.  The lifecycle of an individual investor dictates that with each passing year, risk must be taken off the table to create a better trajectory for a coming retirement.

Years ago, the common line in the retirement planning business centered around the 4% solution to retirement.   Retirees could plan on drawing 4% from their accounts each year, a combination of dividends from stock investments, and yields from well-paying fixed income investments.

Why Invest in Gold, Silver and Platinum Bullion? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Nick_Barisheff

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are many reasons why pension fund managers, private investors and even governments are beginning to add bullion to their portfolios. Perhaps the most important reason for this shift is that bullion provides superior insurance in times of financial uncertainty such as we are facing today.

Until governments solve their debt problems and no longer need to debase their currencies through unbridled money creation, a fully diversified portfolio should include gold, silver and platinum both for wealth protection and growth.

Crude Oil's Climb Set to Stall? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This morning's crude oil inventory report showed a bigger than expected drawdown of 3.96 million barrels compared to expectations of 2 million barrels. Let's notice that although NYMEX oil remains up for the third consecutive session, today's high at 90.23 has not exceeded yesterday's high of 90.48 -- despite the bullish inventory news.

That's the first warning signal that the 8.8% climb in oil prices since Tuesday morning is stalling.

Gold – The Safest Haven? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ian_R_Campbell

I recently read ‘Is the U.S. Dollar Losing Its Safe-Haven Status’ - reading time 2 minutes - thinking time much longer. This article has caused me to re-visit my constant self-debate as to whether physical gold is the best available ‘safe-haven’.

While the article is short, it quotes directly from a research note from the Bank Credit Analyst (‘BCA’ – a well-regarded research house). According to the above article, the note says:

The Swiss Franc Abdicates the Crown - Gold and Silver are King! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: George_Maniere

On Tuesday, Switzerland abdicated the crown as the safe haven currency and pegged itself to the Euro - 1.2 Swiss Francs to the Euro. This left a void. Who would step in as the safe haven currency? Everyone thought it would be gold and silver. Last night as we slept the Central Bank sold of about a billion dollars in gold to force the price of gold down. This caused the dollar to rise and sent money running to the stock market. This is blatant manipulation of the precious metals market because the Central Bank does not want the middle class having any safe harbor. They want them tied to the fiat paper currencies. In the end it won't work because China will stabilize the PM market but it worked yesterday as the Dow rose 275 and the S&P rose 33.38 points.
