Gold Price Jump, What Did It Really Say? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the last weeks we have seen the gold price jump from the price we alerted our subscribers of $1,555, to reach just over $1,800. Contrary to the view of many analysts, we do not see this as a frothy overrun from which it will pull back. On the contrary, this rise in the gold price has said so much more than simply, trading peak.

Think Gold Price is Not Manipulated? Think Again! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: George_Maniere

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Wednesday August 17th the CME came out with an announcement that they would be raising margin rates on the purchase of future contracts on gold. They reported that this was an effort on their part to cool off the price of gold which has enjoyed a parabolic run since August 1st. They said that there would be more rate hikes to protect gold from becoming a bubble. When I read this I laughed at the arrogance of the CME. There is only one reason that that they want to stop gold's parabolic run. They simply do not have enough gold to fulfill the future contracts that they have already sold. Let's not forget that one future contract is sold in lots of 5,000 ounces.

Gold Warning, Cyclical 34 Month Bull Run is About to End / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: David_Banister

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold hit $1805 tonight in trading, a Fibonacci Fractal figure I gave out a few weeks ago as a possible top. We are close to a near term high in Gold and Investors should be trimming back positions on this run. Back as recently as $1600 an ounce I forecasted a run to $1805 for Gold using fractal and wave analysis and behavioral patterns, now that we hit that figure it’s time to update the cycle and where we are.

China and Rare Earth Metals Monopoly / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: OilPrice_Com

First, the bad news - China's constrained rare earth supplies will be an "irreversible trend" and prices will remain at high levels, according to Zhang Zhong, general manager of Inner Mongolia Baotou Steel Rare-Earth Hi-Tech Co.

Gold Breaks Above Key Technical Resistance Level / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: George_Maniere

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1923, the renowned investor Jesse Livermore wrote an article in the Wall Street Journal called “The Square of the Numbers.” I will save the mathematics of his economic model for another essay but he used it to predict stock movements very successfully. What is of note regarding this economic model is that gold broke through a key technical area today when it rose above $1,764.00. Until today it was rising arithmetically. It had a nice angle of appreciation but not parabolic. I would characterize the rise as two steps up for every one step back. It behaved as a healthy stock should.  According to Jesse Livermore’s economic model it has now gone from an arithmetic rise into a period of time where exponential rises are not only possible, they are probable.

Why Gold is the Commodity Above All Others / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

On Tuesday, the Dow (NYSE:DIA), S&P 500 (NYSE:SPY), and the Nasdaq (NASDAQ:QQQQ) all managed to save a little face as Ben Bernanke reassured markets of more cheap money for at least another two years. Although equities and commodities (NYSE:RJI) have been witnessing a selloff over the past few days, gold (NYSE:GLD) has remained strong. Comex December gold futures reached a new high of $1782.50 on Tuesday.

Gold Faces Short-Term Price Trap / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: John_Browne

Last week Fed Chairman Bernanke raised eyebrows and denied history when he asserted in front of Congress that gold doesn't qualify as money. Yesterday he took the unprecedented step of announcing that the Federal Reserve would keep interest rates near zero for at least the next two years. In very short order thereafter it required much more of the money that he believes in (U.S. dollars) to buy the money that he doesn't believe in (gold).

Gold and the Inflation, Deflation Storm / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe events of the last ten days are surely for the history books. The story must be told through a prism of the epic battle between inflation and deflation. The Jackass hates the parlance, since each term is abused. Inflation is the expansion of the monetary supply, while deflation is the decline in that supply. The Powerz would prefer that the public misconstrue what inflation is, so that they can continue to exploit it for their private gain and control of entire banking systems. The US Federal Reserve would prefer that the public remain clueless on the inflation threat, by citing the deflation threat in a manner to justify their Weimar-like hyper inflation. They have expanded the US$ money supply through USTreasury debt monetization severely, to the tune of $2 trillion in two years. That is bigtime inflation!! The downstream consequence is a fast notable rise in the cost structure across the entire global economy, complete with loud outcry. The reaction has been to protect against the price inflation (higher costs) and bond deflation (lost value) by the widespread purchase of both Gold & Silver (bonafide safe haven).

Mongolia Energy Riches Attract Neighbors and Outside Interests / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: OilPrice_Com

Pity poor Mongolia, bereft of fiscal resources, caught between the ambitions of its superpower neighbors, Russia and China.

Ulaan Bator's situation is akin to interwar Poland, dexterously attempting to reconcile its foreign policy between the USSR's hammer and Nazi Germany's hard place. Who will ultimately benefit is anyone's guess, but the country's nascent energy and mineralogical riches have opened the land of Genghis Khan to a fierce bidding war those ultimate outcome is unclear at best.
