Energy Factor To Push Gold Price To New Highs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Steve_St_Angelo

One of the most misunderstood factors that will impact the price of gold is energy.  Many analysts forecast the future value of gold relative to the amount of fiat money circulating in the system as well as total government treasury and bond debt.  However, the world may not have the available energy supply in the future to satisfy these massive debts.

Gold and silver are monetary metals because they function as a store of "Economic Energy", a term coined my Mike Maloney.  Basically, the precious metals are batteries that store this trade-able energy value.

Gold - September Usually the Best Month of the Year / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Frank_Holmes

I often talk about how the gold trade is really two separate trades. There’s the Fear Trade that buys gold out of fear of war or poor government policies. This crowd sees the precious metal as a safe haven during times of crisis, such as when gold rose over the fear of a war in Syria, but eased when a much more limited military action became likely.

Gold Drops as Assad Accepts Russian Plan, Analysts Start Pricing Fed's Cut to QE / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

BENCHMARK London prices for physical gold fell to $1363 lunchtime Tuesday, down 2.3% from Monday's high as the Assad regime in Syria accepted a Russian-backed plan to give its chemical weapons to international control.

The Rupee meantime rose to a 2-session high after new Indian trade data showed gold imports falling and exports rising in August.

Crude Oil’s Relationship with Oil Stocks and Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Nadia_Simmons

In our previous Oil Update we examined major factors, which previously fueled the price of light crude. Before we move on to the technical part of our Oil Update, let’s take a closer look at the events of the previous week.

At the beginning of the last week President Barack Obama won the backing of key figures in the U.S. Congress, including Republicans, in his call for limited strikes on Syria. Additionally, a missile test by Israeli forces training in the Mediterranean with the U.S. Navy set nerves on edge. These circumstances fueled the oil market and resulted in a sharp pullback to over $108 per barrel. In spite of this growth, in the following days, the price of light crude was trading in the narrow range between the Tuesday’s low and top.

Gold "Dull & Thin" as Spec's Cut Shorts But Analysts Expect Post-Fed Losses / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The PRICE of GOLD edged $10 per ounce lower Monday morning in what dealers called "dull, thin" trade following Friday's sharp jump on US jobs data.

A surge in Asian share prices – attributed to Tokyo winning the 2020 Olympics bid, plus official news of 7% annual growth in China's exports and imports in August – failed to lift European stock markets.

The High-Tech "Gold Rush" Officially Begins / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: If you've blinked in the last 14 days, you might have missed this...

ARM Holdings PLC (Nasdaq ADR: ARMH) - one of the world's dominant mobile-device chip companies - bought a small Finnish software startup called Sensinode Oy in a deal whose price wasn't reported.

And most folks shrugged it off as just another of the thousands of below-the-radar deals that companies do every year.

Is Gold Price Manipulation About to Begin Again? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Toby_Connor

The answer to the question above unfortunately is maybe. There are definitely warning signs springing up.

The first sign of trouble popped up last week when the miners generated a key reversal on huge volume, and on a day when gold was actually positive. Something about that day smells very fishy to me. It looks like big-money traders had advance notice that a false breakout to new highs was going to be manufactured to give insiders an exit after a two-month 40% rally. The high volume follow through the following day confirms that something is not right.

Can Silver Hold $23 ? $26 Should / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

The silver situation continues to grow more positively, based on developing market activity. Almost everyone has an opinion, but they are all subservient to whatever the market dictates with its most current and most reliable information. It is then a matter of reading the message. Sometimes it is very clear, sometimes not.

The resistance for silver at $26 is uppermost on the mind of everyone with any degree of awareness for this market. A lesser market message, but one still quite clear was the lesser resistance from a demonstrated failed swing high retest back in April.

Gold and Silver Holding the Line On a Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jesse

Today was filled with cross currents, as the Non-Farm Payrolls report came in light, and looked even worse if you peered into the details of it.

The unemployment rate is less meaningful now because of the large number of people who have been long term unemployed and are falling off the unemployment benefits rolls. Labor Participation Rate and average workweek are therefore a bit more important. And things are not looking good because the jobs that are being created tend to be low wage and often part time.

One nation's recovery is another's credit crisis. Time to sell gold...

COTTON is it, for the second anniversary? Today marked two years since gold hit its all-time peak so far.
 
Tuesday 6th Sept 2011 was wet and windy, both in London and gold. Late Asian trade had seen the wholesale gold price rise 1.4%, reaching $1921 per ounce. Prices then turned lower, and by the time New York opened the air was hissing out of gold futures.

Indian Gold Price Soars, Neear Collapse of Another Fiat Currency / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold denominated in Indian rupees just skyrocketed up near record highs, a far cry from recent dollar-gold action.  Much of this extraordinary rally was fueled by the near-collapse of the Indian currency to new record lows against the US dollar.  India’s deepening currency crisis has major implications for domestic gold demand and thus global gold prices.  Nothing ignites gold buying like a collapsing currency!

Indians’ deep cultural affinity for gold is legendary.  For decades it was the world’s biggest consumer of gold, although China is overtaking it now.  According to the World Gold Council, in the first half of 2013 India still accounted for a staggering 28% of global consumer gold demand!  The 566.5 metric tons of the yellow metal Indians bought in the last two quarters greatly dwarf Americans’ 83.4t purchased.

Gold: An Attitude Adjustment For Institutional Banks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Clif_Droke

The last couple of weeks have witnessed changing attitudes of large institutions concerning the gold price. A growing number of institutional analysts are become bullish - some them ultra bullish - on gold's near-term outlook. What makes this unusual is the fact that only a few weeks ago they were singing a bearish tune. The swift attitude adjustment is a testament to the strong impact of rising prices on the investor psyche.

Gold Marks 2 Years from Top with $30 Jump on Weak US Data / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

The PRICE of gold jumped $33 from a new 10-session low in just 5 minutes on Friday, touching $1393 per ounce before easing back after August's Non-Farm Payrolls data on US jobs came in weaker than expected.

Net hiring rose to 169,000 jobs instead of the 180,000 analysts forecast. The US unemployment rate, however, fell to a 44-month low of 7.3%.

Sell Gold, Buy Stocks: Really Dumb Idea / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

With delusions running rampant, the investment community gave into the pressures for conformity in June to embark on another one of their ongoing errors of judgement. Selling Gold and buying equities became an emotionally driven mania, void of reason. Rather than assessing rewards and risk for their clients, the "teenage" traders running "hedge" funds again chose the wrong strategy.

How High Could Silver Prices Go? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

One of the most often asked questions by those interested in investing in silver pertains to not only how low, but how high silver’s price can go.
 
The range is anywhere from a paper price of zero, given the role of the bullion banks in the decades long silver market price suppression conspiracy, to infinity in the event of a U.S. Dollar hyperinflationary scenario.

Gold and Silver in a World that is Flat, Fungible and Fiat / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Ultimately, the global markets remain the battlefield in which investors compete for the last remaining quality collateral. Furthermore, secondary to Fed taper talk’s effect on the United States, is its impact on markets abroad.   

As a case in point, the impact of the recently announced Fed QE taper plans on the exchange rate of emerging market currencies has been rather dramatic to say the least. The threat of tapering has sent shock waves across emerging markets seeing sharp crashes in the value of Indonesian and Indian currencies. Even the Mexican Peso has been hit substantially as hot money investors’ interest returns to Dollar assets.

Gold and Silver Stocks No Retest of June Lows / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Recently I’ve received some emails from those who are concerned about a retest of the June low in the precious metals complex. That prompted me to look at how rebounds develop from significant bottoms. In recent months we focused on historical bottoms in gold stocks and it helped us to pinpoint the best buying opportunities. In this editorial we broaden the scope and examine how certain bottoms play out and why they play out in a particular manner. The length and depth of the preceding bear market helps us to understand how the ensuing bull market evolves during its initial rebound.

Gold Price, What Can We Infer From Copper and Palladium? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

According to Reuters, gold rose after President Barack Obama won the backing of key figures in the U.S. Congress, including Republicans, in his call for limited strikes on Syria to punish the government for its suspected use of chemical weapons against civilians. Earlier on Tuesday, a missile test by Israeli forces training in the Mediterranean with the U.S. Navy set nerves on edge. These circumstances stimulated safe-haven buying in the gold market and resulted in an increase in price to above $1,416 an ounce.
