Gold Surges as Stocks Tumble on U.S. Economic Slump / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT-GOLD MARKET regained a third of this week's 6% drop Friday morning in London, trading back above $960 an ounce on a flood of bad economic and financial news.

The US economy shrank by 6.2% annualized at the tail-end of 2008 said the Bureau of Economic Analysis – the worst rate in 25 years – while personal spending fell by 5¢ in the dollar.

How Does Silver Perform During Deflation? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: David_Morgan

A question many of our readers have asked. Today, most investors are fairly convinced that gold does fairly well during a deflationary environment. Since gold has held better than all asset classes these past several months, many mistakenly believe that gold does best during inflations, but they are not sure about gold during deflations. The fact is, from times past, gold actually does best during deflations, rather than inflations.

Gold 2009 Supply and Demand Impact on Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the gold holdings of the Barclays Gold Trust and the World Gold Council's gold Exchange Traded Funds across the globe grew larger than the gold holdings of Switzerland this week, we look at the dramatic shape of the likely Supply/Demand formula for 2009. Since the end of 2008 until now the gold market has changed shape and it promises to be a structural change should what we see now continue! Just how much gold is being absorbed at the moment from what sales and purchases? To understand this fully we have to look at the last reported figures in the gold market on Demand & Supply. [We use the numbers supplied by the World Gold Council for this purpose.]

War for Muslim Gold and Silver: Goldsmiths Part XXXIX / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Robert_Bradshaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs discussed in an article on World Power Blocs at www.analysis-news.com , and in other Goldsmiths' material, there is strong evidence that in coming days the Muslim empire of the South will have treasures of gold and silver which may invite a military invasion, evidently by a power bloc in the North. The Northern power will seize, steal or otherwise take possession/rulership of the gold and silver treasures in the South.

Gold Continues to Correct From Bull Run to $1000 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD continued to slide early Wednesday, recording their lowest London Gold Fix in seven sessions at $956.25 an ounce.

Crude oil held above $40 per barrel and government bonds were flat – yielding 2.82% on the 10-year US Treasury – after President Barack Obama assured TV viewers and Congress alike that although his massive stimulus spending means "We will rebuild, we will recover...the weight of this crisis will not determine the destiny of this nation."

Gold Production in South Africa Plunges to 90 Year Lows / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold fell yesterday on profit taking and ended the day down 2.3% at $969.25/oz (silver fell by 3.1% to $13.98/oz).

A short term correction was expected and warned of and this correction was necessary after gold becoming overbought in the short term. Gold had rallied over $100 (from $890/oz on February 9th to just over $1,000/oz on February 20th) or some 12% in less than two weeks. Such an appreciation in any asset class in such a short period of time is unsustainable.

Smart Money Moving Out of Gold: Trading Gold, SIlver and Oil ETF's / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past few days have been stressful, as I watched gold slowly work its way higher without a decent correction to take another position. Both gold and silver have been on a tear moving higher not allowing the more conservative trader like my self with a low risk setup and entry point. I am not a fan of chasing prices higher, as it generally leads to a quick loss when prices snap back and correct from an over bought state. This is what both gold and silver did today and I expect to see lower prices over the next week or so, depending on how fast they correct. Last Friday I mentioned the open interest on gold went down sharply, which told me that smart money was moving out of gold and that is always a RED FLAG. Let's take a look at the charts below because that's what trading is all about Price Action.

$XAU Rising Wedge Pattern / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article(Response to a reader’s query)

Hi Dock, I’m not a trader on the markets. My decision with gold is that I own some gold shares as an insurance policy in the short term but also as investment for the long term. The company is an up and coming miner with at least 10 million ounces of resources and perhaps 50 million ounces – time will tell. I will hold those shares over the long term regardless of what the market does over the short term. That particular mine will make a profit at any price of gold above US$500 an ounce when it reaches its minimum maintainable annual production. That situation is expected to manifest within the next 12-18 months and the business has the capital resources to ensure this outcome.

Doug Casey: Investment Opportunities Amidst Economic Crisis / Commodities / Investing 2009

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBullion and oil appear in the lineup of power players that Doug Casey thinks investors can count on as the world slips deeper and deeper into what he calls the “Greater Depression.” Despite the raging economic storm and Doug's doubts that Western civilization's governments will take the actions needed to quell it, though, the Chairman of Casey Research is nowhere close to calling the game. In fact, he sees silver lining in the clouds of crisis—opportunity—and expresses optimism that technological advances, coupled with capital rebuilding once over-consumption runs its course, will prevail eventually. The Gold Report caught up with the peripatetic author, publisher and professional international investor between polo matches in New Zealand, one of several nation-states he calls home from time to time.

Not All Commodities Stocks are Treated Equal (Part 2) / Commodities / Investing 2009

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe first part of this two-part series essentially looked into the different effects monetary occurrences and supply and demand fundamentals can have on commodity prices. Monetary authorities around the world are implementing rampart growth in the money supply and quantitative easing in the form of negative real interest rates; meanwhile, the global economy is in free fall. The factors have opposite effects on commodity prices. We came to the logical conclusion that we wanted to give our portfolio exposure to the commodities that have significant monetary uses, aren't cyclical, or both. Two good examples are gold and the grains. I want to be careful with my next statement.

GOLD At $1000 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHoward S. Katz writes: Here is the great, grand cycle bull market in gold which started in 2001 and has, thus far, multiplied its price by a factor of 4. (The grand cycle bull market in gold of the 1970s multiplied its price by a factor of 25 before it was over.) It is a simple chart, but it has many important lessons (which few understand). On the central economic question of our time — is there going to be currency depreciation or currency appreciation - this chart speaks volumes.

Gold Safehaven Investing- How to Buy Gold Bullion Online with BullionVault / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold price continues to respond strongly to the global Zero Interest Rate Policies (ZIRP) and "Quantative Easing" aka "Money Printing" that is increasingly setting the scene for the current price deflation as a consequence of the credit bubble bursting and asset price collapse of 2008 to give way to much higher inflation, Gold as a leading indicator of future inflation has again recently crossed back above $1000. Which according to my forecast for 2009 is now due to trigger an imminent significant correction and potential opportunity to accumulate.
