By: Sol_Palha

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Remember when $25, 000 was a success? Now it is a garbage collector." ~ Frank Dane

At one point on Monday the Dollar was trading in the red and Gold which should have shot up was actually trading roughly 10 dollars lower. As the Day progressed both the Dollar and the Euro were trending upwards together while Gold continued to slide. The story below attempts to provide a reason for this phenomenon.

Gold Price Major Correction Coming? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

We are hearing from some sources that the gold price will tackle previous highs then fall to $850. We did hear this before gold rose to $1,100, with many believing that then there would be a correction to $850, but it didn’t happen then either. What happened was that gold held its ground then broke upwards through resistance to set itself on track for higher prices.

Gold Up, Dollar Down, as George Soros Buys More Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD rose versus a falling US Dollar Friday morning in London, recovering one-third of the week's earlier 3% drop as world stock markets crept towards new multi-month highs.

Crude oil also rose, pushing above $82 per barrel after the International Energy Agency called January's jump in China's energy demand – up by 28% – "astonishing".

By: Seven_Days_Ahead

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarly this year the prior steady uptrend from a late 2008 low was seen to falter at a key Fibonacci level. After an initial sell-off a strong bounce has unnerved the bears - there is still scope for a resumption of weakness, but the market is at a critical stage.

No Gold Price Manipulation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSummary and Conclusions - Contrary to the opinions of various gold commentators it is the view of this analyst – flowing from the analysis below – that the gold price is not being manipulated at this juncture. The world appears to be about to enter a period of deflation. The severity of this deflation will be a function of the appropriateness of the behaviour of the world’s central banks in respect of their responsibilities to ensure that the fleet of economic ships maintains an even keel. If they over react at this point, we might experience a bursting of the debt bubble and a resulting world Depression. If they react with responsibility, then the probabilities favour a slow deflation of the debt bubble. The behaviour of the gold price and the bond yields in the past few days appear to be pointing to the fact that a dose of reality has crept into the thought processes of the world’s governments and central banks.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold-plated, tungsten-filled bars story hasn’t gone away.  Not only has it continued to pop up in various gold and hard-money, investment-advisory letters; but even the populous press publishers, like the American Free Press and Rense.com, have found it expedient to publish material on it as well.

Weakness in Gold GLD ETF / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleApart from the fundamentals that indicate the global economy, in general, and China and the U.S, in particular, might be showing signs of resurgence after over a year of “government stimulation,” the last 24 hours of trading has damaged the near-term technical condition of spot gold prices and the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD). Yesterday, gold reversed from early morning strength as prices sliced beneath an important 5-week uptrendline (at approx. $1109).

Where is the Value in the Precious Metals Sector? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven despite the tremendous recovery in precious metals shares, I still find value across the entire spectrum. The various indices (HUI, XAU & XGD.to) as well as my proprietary junior index (shown below) all rallied back to or near the 2008 high. Since that point, Gold is about 10% higher. It is more than 10% higher when priced in foreign currencies. Meanwhile, Oil, (which is 25% the cost of mining) is down about 30% (from March 2008). I bet most other cost inputs have declined in price.

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold fell sharply in a short period of time yesterday in US trading - falling from $1,127.35/oz to $1,103.45/oz to close with a loss of 1.26%. It has range traded from $1,105/oz to $1,109/oz so far in European trading this morning. Gold is currently trading at $1,105.70/oz and in euro and GBP terms, gold is trading at €811/oz and £739/oz respectively. Oil at over $82 a barrel would be expected to lead to inflation hedging buying but is not supporting gold today.

Gold and the Paper Bubble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTalk of a Gold bubble over the past 6-9 months grows louder and louder. It is comical and a sign of desperation among those losing their grip on the levers of power and influence. I have never seen a bubble so heavily recognized and announced by the very institutional participants who are pouring all their money into it! Will Gold become a bubble? I think it may, which is why I own it. The break out over $1000/ounce last fall has certainly cleared the deck and made it a possibility.

The Seasonality of Gold Has Broken Down / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Gold Report has again interviewed newsletter writer and commentator Lou Paquette, who launched the Emerging Growth Stocks website in 1995 to provide investors and speculators with a unique alternative to what he saw was a growing problem with corporate governance and conflict of interest on Wall Street. He is not counting out the U.S. dollar quite yet as the euro waivers. He also believes that there is no longer necessarily a seasonality regarding gold and gold stocks.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSteve Sjuggerud writes: "A few factors limit our ability to increase [our] investment in gold," China's Chief foreign exchange regulator Yi Gang said in a speech this week.

Investors have long speculated China will start buying gold and selling its hoard of U.S. dollars at some point. (China's hoard could be literally trillions of U.S. dollars.) It would be the first step in a "Doomsday" scenario...
