The Case Of The Mystery Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Lonerangersilver writes: I would like to share a story with the readers and hear your opinion. It was around 1985 in Northern Mexico before all the drug scandals. The new President of Mexico set to completely change the corruption in the customs authority especially in the US/Mexican border. To this end he entrusted a highly trustworthy and honest economics professor from a northern university (let’s call him Guzman) and put him totally in charge. Guzman then turned to some of his most trusted ex-students to fill the supervisory ranks and they in turn completely cleaned house hiring and training new agents.

By: Ben_Traynor

Silver: The Fulcrum of Value / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePat Fields writes: A nonchalant comment I’d posted to a thread on Facebook (1) reflecting on a Zerohedge article (2) relating to bullion bank, Scotia Mocatta’s curious accounting for their silver holdings, sparked a small brush-fire of e-mails among a few folks. Particularly, it was my characterization of silver as having the analogical position of a fulcrum, providing a natural balance to the rational valuations of gold and copper and the further societal effect that this function imparts. Consequently, I received a note to request that I write this article, expanding further on these interconnections.

Great Silver Crash of 2011 May Not Be Over / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to the calendar, Summer doldrums should now be taking hold of the financial markets. Perhaps this year, though, those hot day blues might be replaced with greater than normal excitement. We know some interesting events might take place.

First, QE-2 is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month. With no discernable positive effect on the U.S. economy from that program and U.S. Senate wisely blocking the filling of two Board seats at the Federal Reserve, QE-3 seems unlikely.

Gold Sideways Trend Suggests Topping Activity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough it looks as if gold has been moving sideways for the past two weeks a closer look suggests a topping activity.  This coming week should tell us if that is so or not.  However, any short term reaction should not be a concern as the longer term picture still looks okay for new highs in the not too distant future.

Gold, The Real Reason for the Fall of Dominique Strauss-Kahn / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRequesting anonymity in return for speaking, senior French financial officials have disclosed their interpretation of why and how Dominique Strauss-Kahn known as "DSK" in France, fell suddenly from world power as head of the IMF. Cited on French blog sites, these officials see nothing less than a threat to world monetary stability and the integrity of the global economy, behind the dramatic sleaze operation that felled the woman-chasing, globetrotting freespender with a B-movie sting in a Manhattan hotel room.

Why Gold and Silver Are Not in a Bubble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAny thoughts of a bubble in precious metals is not pertinent at this time. As long as mining stocks are not in favor then any thoughts of a bubble are not applicable in the current situation. Mining stocks should be soaring in tandem with their brothers in bullion. Such is not the case. Miners are trading far below general market valuation. In past history during a bubble, mining stocks soared to hundreds of dollars a share at the same time as bullion.

NYMEX Crooks (alleged) Crude Oil Futures Fake Out Scam / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: PhilStockWorld

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe CROOKS (allegedly, just indictments so far) at the NYMEX are running a scam and they have NO INTENTION WHATSOEVER of accepting delivery of even 1/10th of the 367M barrels they had as open contracts last week. In fact, Wednesday (June 8) they traded their contracts 454,043 times - isn't that amazing?  It's a 123% daily churn rate!  Of course, it's easy to churn 454M barrels of crude because the only sucker that ends up paying for all those fees is YOU, the end consumer of crude.  All those fees are passed on to you as part of the price of oil.

HUI Gold Stocks Index Heading for Severe Prolonged Correction / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Ronald_Rosen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the month of March 2008 the HUI reached a high of 519.68. For the first time since April 2008 the black line of the monthly MACD indicator has bearishly crossed beneath the red line. Each crossing led to a prolonged and severe correction. The current bearish crossing should also result in a severe and perhaps prolonged correction.

Gold and Silver Negative Momentum to Continue? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet’s begin today’s discussion with fresh Fed decisions and its implications on capital markets. Ben Bernanke sent a strong signal recently that despite weaker economic data, the US Federal Reserve is not planning to loosen monetary policy. He said that the recovery “appears to be proceeding at a moderate pace”, in other words, no QE3, at least not for now. Wall Street turned south, the 10-year Treasury yield eased back under 3 per cent and gold futures fell. In the last Premium Update before we knew what Bernanke planned to say, we said that it was a good idea to close long speculative positions in gold.

Why Crude Oil Prices Rise / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne thing is sure: oil prices rise when they are not falling. There is an intermediate case: they stay flat, but that is not a trader-friendly situation, because making money from oil price speculation is only possible when prices change. The more they change, the more dosh can be made from organizing price dips and surges. Consequently, even the quickest glance of Nymex or ICE or Tocom (or any other oil market) prices shows one clear thing: they change.

Gold and Silver Summer Doldrums / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTraders beware, the dreaded precious-metals summer doldrums are now upon us!  Summers are barren sentiment wastelands for the entire PM complex.  Gold, silver, and the PM stocks tend to grind listlessly sideways to lower, vexing traders who aren’t psychologically prepared to weather this slow season.

A variety of factors drive this phenomenon during the financial-market summers, which run from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  The primary one is the same summer psychology that affects all the financial markets, vacation season.  Traders flee the markets in droves during these lazy summer months, enjoying the bountiful sunlight, long warm days, and precious family time while their kids are out of school.

Why Japan Will Turn to Solar Energy Following Fukushima Nuclear Disaster / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the dire news continues to leach out of Fukishima, the silver lining in its nuclear cloud is that renewable energy technologies, despite their daunting start-up costs, are receiving renewed scrutiny.

Make no mistake - given the trillions of dollars invested over the last five decades in nuclear energy, the industry and its lobbyists will not go down without a fight, promoting new, "safe" reactor designs, etc. etc. etc.

Gold Top Soon Could Fool Bulls / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst let me start by clarifying I've been a Gold Bull since November 2001 based on Elliott Wave patterns and currency concerns as well. Since that period nearly ten years ago, I have followed and forecasted the patterns in gold and have been amazed at the clearly definable trends both for large moves to the upside as well as corrective patterns.

By: GoldCore

Gold is trading at $1,540.44/oz, €1,065.02/oz and £944.82/oz.

Gold has risen to new record nominal highs in British pounds and is consolidating just below recent record nominal highs in U.S. dollars, euros and other currencies. The ECB’s rate decision and Trichet’s ‘signals’ saw the euro fall sharply against the dollar and against gold with gold in euro terms quickly rising from €1,050/oz to over €1,065/oz.
