Silver Bullion COMEX Stocks at 4-Year Low as Backwardation Deepens / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Silver is particularly strong again this morning and the euro has come under pressure as bonds in Ireland, Spain, Portugal and Greece continue to rise.

Gold Bull Market Parabola / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGoldRunner writes: Gold is in an historic Bull Market because most nations are printing their paper currencies like they are going out of style (and maybe they are) as each nation tries to battle off the massive deflationary backdrop of debt that has permeated most of the world. This surge of debt monetization - this devaluing of the U.S. Dollar for one - has set the scene for a parabolic rise in $Gold to $1860, or higher, over the coming months before an intermediate-term correction takes place. Let me explain.

Gold Fails to Respond to Middle East Crisis, Looks Ready for More Downside Action / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe upheaval in the Middle East has done nothing for gold.  It looks like gold is ready for more downside action.  A move to $1305 would not be good.  The “Penny Arcade Index” is still okay so any downside activity shouldn’t last for too long.

Gold is as Good as Cash and Wields More Power / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Barry_Elias

Gold is now functioning as collateral to compensate for potential losses in the portfolios of financial institutions.

One month ago, I proposed there may be an underlying economic basis for gold to reach $4,000 per ounce in the next decade. This scenario is looking more probable given these recent developments.

Gold, the Mother of All Bull Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarket commentator and investor Peter Grandich of Grandich.com and Grandich Publications tells The Gold Report that certain plays on surging demand and looming commodity shortages are no-brainers for investors, and he shares a few ideas on how to profit from these conditions. Peter also believes that U.S. monetary policy has been a disaster and that it will "end badly" for the U.S. stock market and economy. He's bullish on China and on base—and especially—precious metals, energy, food and water. Gold and silver are still his big plays.

Gold Timing, Gold:Bonds Ratio Matters Over Bond Yields' Ratio / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflation vs. market fluctuations is always a hot topic in precious metal markets. Inflation is good for gold, which has a long history of acting as a hedge against it. With rising inflation it is likely that there will be a corresponding rise in the price of precious metals; that brings us to the question, how do you value gold? It is evident that there is no scientific method for valuing gold since it’s a non-earning asset. Perhaps we should value gold by “1/n, where ‘n’ is investor confidence in paper currencies. But how do you measure ‘n’?  Let’s have a look into the history.

Gold and Silver the Ultimate Profit Keys and Wealth Protection / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The lack of growth in the M3 measure — traditional broadest money supply measure used by the Fed until its abandonment in March 2006 — suggests a re-intensifying systemic solvency crisis, as does the continued lack of growth in bank lending.  The implications here remain extremely negative for broad economic activity.  On the inflation front, however, where there is an overhang of $7 trillion or so outside the United States — being held at the whim of dollar investors — that has to be considered in the U.S. monetary picture.  Higher prices already are being seen in a number of dollar-denominated commodities, ranging from oil to food.  The higher prices are anticipating and fueling the early stages of Mr. Bernanke’s desired debasement of the dollar.”

Gold, Silver and the Validity of Technical Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently the economics site: www.FinanceandEconomics.org published an article on "Precious Metals and the validity of Technical Analysis. We completely agree with the thoughts expressed there and in this piece would like to expand on their thoughts here. Over the last eight years or so we have seen the Technical Analysis approach to the gold price give incorrect signals, when seen in isolation. Many times the technical picture pointed down on the gold price in the face of a strong fundamental picture. We know that this has wrong-footed many gold investors who found themselves waiting for a fall only to see it consolidate then rise.

Silver Bullion Backwardation Suggests Supply Stress / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver are higher against all currencies (except the Canadian dollar) in the wake of the worse than expected trade deficit number ($40.6 billion). Sterling and euro are particularly weak against gold and the US dollar today.

Silver backwardation continues and while spot silver is at $30.09/oz, the March 2011 contract is at $30.07/oz and April at $30.01/oz. Incredibly, the July 2012 contract is trading at $29.93/oz and the December 2013 contract at $29.91/oz.

Monetary Inflation and Supply Concerns Drive Commodities More So Than Demand / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mainstream press loves to talk about emerging market demand as a cause of inflation, rising prices and the bull market in commodities. Did emerging markets suddenly begin demanding food, energy and metals in 2001? What about five and ten years earlier? Its a rhetorical question. The conventional wisdom is wrong.

Investors Should Focus on Chinese Agri-Food Stocks Opportunities / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday a sign of true wealth is owning a horse. Cost of feeding them has escalated dramatically as Agri-Food prices have risen. Owning two horses is an ostentatious flaunting of one’s wealth. Paying an Iowa farmer for corn with which to produce ethanol is still criticized by many poorly informed individuals. They might better serve to lower food prices if they attacked the frivolous feeding of  Agri-Foods to horses. Perhaps horse ownership should be banned except on working ranches. That all said, any Agri-Food shortages around the world are due to government policies. Horses and weather only serve to exacerbate the situation.

Uranium to Cross $100 Threshold in 2011 / Commodities / Uranium

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePhilip Williams, Pinetree Capital's VP of business development, says the spot price for uranium will likely explode above $100/lb. in 2011, much as it did in 2007 when it topped at $137. The good news, Philip says, is that even when uranium comes off its high, it will likely only fall to around $80. It's around $73 now. If Philip's right, we're on the cusp of another round of uranium market madness. And you will want to read this Energy Report exclusive for some of Pinetree's favorite uranium and lithium plays.

Showdown in the Gold and Silver Markets: Let's Get Ready to Rumble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver is likely to lead the way higher from here, with gold following.

The suppression of the metals by the central banks since 1971 will not fall apart in a moment. But if there is a time to which people will later point and say, 'this was the turning point,' it is likely to be in the intital breakout of silver above twenty and of gold from its big cup and handle formation. To borrow an analogy from wartime, this was their Stalingrad, prelude to Kursk.
