All That Sparkles Isn’t Necessarily Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jim_Farrish

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePrecious metals have become a household investment. Your neighbor may not be buying gold bars and putting them in the garage, but the average investor is putting more of their money into the sector. Gold historically has been the metal of choice and has offered market beating performance since the summer of 2002. If you google ‘gold investing’ you get more than 77 million choices. Leave it to Wall Street to come up with an excess of ways to invest in the metal.

China's Gold Imports Soar by Massive 500% on Investment Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver are higher again today in all currencies after eking out marginal gains yesterday, when gold rose to new record nominal highs in euros and in British pounds at £895.44/oz. The weakness of sterling against gold shows that the euro and the dollar are not the only currencies about which investors are concerned. Gold at $1,391/oz remains some 2% below its record nominal high seen on the 9th of November ($1,421/oz London PM Fix) and after the recent period of consolidation looks set to challenge this level again.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Krauth writes: Forecasting prices for anything can be tricky. And a precious-metal commodity such as silver is no exception.

With gold holding the leash on its "lapdog" - silver - the performance of the so-called "yellow metal" holds the key to silver prices in the New Year.

Gold Price Forecast to Hit $1900 In 2011 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Krauth writes: Gold investors are a happy bunch. Those with the luck or foresight to have boarded the golden railroad back in 2001 have experienced a fivefold investment in the "metal of kings." That works out to compounded return of better than 20% a year.

Such a torrid performance has evoked claims that this is just another financial bubble - that's soon to burst.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJerry Western writes: If we continue down the same economic path that we have been following for the last four decades - and there is no indication that we won't even if we wanted to, or could, at this point - it is mathematically inevitable that gold and silver will approach infinity in U.S. dollar terms at some point in the future.  Yes, approach infinity!

Buying Silver to Break JP Morgan / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

For just over a week, activists have been spreading an online call to silver investors: buy physical silver and help bring down JP Morgan.  Though the title “activist investor” is often reserved for billionaires with more proxy votes in a company than they know what to do with, this new age surge in investing activism should be appreciated, even if it is a little misdirected.

Gold Bull Market Driven By Depleting Faith in Fiat Currency / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a good reason why the U.S. government prints the phrase “In God We Trust” on the currency. You have to have faith that the pieces of papers you carry in your wallet have value and that you can exchange goods and services for those bits of paper. Fiat money is not "backed up" by anything; intrinsically it is useless paper (nowadays not even that, but mere electronic bookkeeping entries). It is valuable only as far as people believe in its anticipated purchasing power.

Gold Up USD 3% in November, 9% in EUR, Silver Surges 14% and 22% / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConcerns of contagion in eurozone debt markets and increasing existential concerns about the actual single currency itself saw gold rise 1% and silver by 3% yesterday (in USD). Gold in euro terms rose by even more as the euro again fell in international markets which saw gold in euros rise to a new record nominal high in euro terms just below €1,070/oz. While risk appetite is on again as seen in the bounce in equity markets, Spanish and Italian bond yields have risen again this morning showing that the risk of contagion remains real. Gold prices have remained robust after yesterday's gain.

Investing in Chinese Rare Earth Metals Mining Companies / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

During the recent de facto ban on the export of rare earth shipments to Japan by China, what almost went unnoticed is the fact that the ban was only on raw materials and not on finished goods that utilized rare earths sourced from China. This is viewed as a move by China to force foreign buyers to purchase China’s manufactured goods in addition to the raw materials. Economist Paul Krugman, while not sympathetic to the Chinese cause, blames the US and other advanced economies for getting themselves into such a position of dependence. He has pointed out that one way of breaking free is to do what the Japanese are doing – recycle rare earth metals, or get innovative and design products that do not require rare earths.

First Month of Van Eck’s REMX ETF / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Anthony_David

In late October, Van Eck Global launched the first listed exchange-traded fund (ETF) in the United States – the Market Vectors Rare Earth/Strategic Metals ETF (NYSE Arca:REMX), which aims to expose investors to companies involved in the production, refining, and recycling of rare earth/strategic metals. The fund seeks to reproduce, as far as possible, the price and yield performance of the Market Vectors Rare Earth/Strategic Metals Index (Index), which enables investors to track the overall performance of listed companies in that sector. To be listed in the Index, a company must earn over 50% of its revenue from ventures in the rare earth/strategic metals space.

How and Where Manganese & Magnesium is Used / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleManganese is found in nature as a free element, in combination with iron and many other minerals. The most important industrial use of manganese is as an alloy, predominantly in the steel industry. In fact, there is no comparative substitute for manganese in its primary applications. Pure magnesium, on the other hand, is not found as a free element because of its highly reactive nature. The primary industrial applications of magnesium are as a component of aluminum and zinc alloys, in the removal of sulfur in the iron and steel-manufacturing sector, and in the production of metals such as titanium.

Long on Natural Gas, Longer on Crude Oil / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven if the pace of China's growth slows dramatically, count on the commodities boom to continue, says Adrian Day Asset Management Chairman and CEO Adrian Day. That bodes well for oil, as China's huge population will at least double per-capita consumption of oil over the next decade—maybe even drive it up fivefold. In this Energy Report exclusive, Adrian discusses Indian and Chinese demand and why he isn't worried long term about natural gas.

IMF To Soon Announce Completion of Gold Sales / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

At the end of October the I.M.F. had 32.7 tonnes of gold left to be sold. In September they sold 32 tonnes of gold and in October 19.5 tonnes, in the open market. Should they continue selling at the pace of September then we would expect to hear the announcement in December and probably in the first half of December. If they continued the slower pace of selling of October then we will have to wait until January 2011 for the announcement. We believe that this is significant because it will signal the real end of "Official" selling of gold. The signatories of the Central Bank Gold Agreement, with the exception of small deals in coins have not sold for over a year now. With the completion of the I.M.F. sales the annual 400 tonnes of 'official' selling will not be available to the market.

Where is Gold Headed Next? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold market has been pushing out its normal level of frustration and anxiety for the past several weeks.

So the question becomes, is the gold market pausing to move higher, and of course the Bulls would argue this, or is it forming the head and shoulders top that many technicians are looking for? Of course, this would be a bearish sign for gold if this technical formation is completed.

Gold, No Bearish Head and Shoulders Pattern / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the past week I’ve seen more than a few mentions of the potential head and shoulders pattern in Gold. A head and shoulders pattern occurs when a market forms three peaks and the middle peak is noticeably higher than the left and right peaks. However, that is not enough for the pattern to play out as projected in the textbooks. There are other important characteristics of this pattern, which many technicians ignore or are unaware of.
