Real Gold, Escaping Cash in the Bank / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Adrian_Ash

US and UK inflation rose faster than interest rates in June. Get used to it...

Just why do people choose to buy gold and silver? The answer from a quick survey of BullionVault users last week couldn't be clearer:

Inflation. Or rather, the erosion of money's purchasing power.

A Short Seller Investors Guide to Obama's Climate Change Initiatives / Commodities / Climate Change

By: The_Energy_Report

"Regulation" is a dirty word among most investors, but for speculators like Rodney Stevens, portfolio manager at Wolverton Securities Ltd. and author of The Disciplined Speculator newsletter, state-mandated emissions caps and renewable energy goals present an extraordinary opportunity for growth. In this interview with The Energy Report, Stevens makes a bullish case for solar stocks and offers several names for traders playing offense or defense. But whatever your strategy, Stevens says get the heck out of bonds and into equities.

Gold Matter In “a banquet of consequences” Deficits / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Michael_J_Kosares

DEFICITS MATTER! Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the first to publicly declare that deficits did not matter since, he reasoned, we owe the money to ourselves. Dick Cheney, who should know better, made the same claim in behalf of Republican deficits. Deficit denial has never held water simply because holders of government paper – foreign or domestic — intend to be repaid and with interest. It’s that part about creditors demanding interest that blows a hole in the “deficits-do-not-matter” argument.

Commodities 2013 Halftime Report: A Time to Mine for Opportunity? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Frank_Holmes

It was a challenging first half of the year for most commodities, with only two resources we track on our Periodic Table of Commodities Returns rising in value. Natural gas and oil rose 6.5 percent and 5 percent, respectively, while silver lost a third of its value and gold lost a quarter of its price from the beginning of the year.

At first glance, the correction seems to support naysayers who believe the supercycle in commodities has ended, such as Credit Suisse analysts, who had declared that the “era is over,” in its digital magazine, The Financialist.

By Grant Williams: A few weeks ago, I put a chart with which I am acutely familiar up on my Bloomberg. It is a chart I have studied every single day for over a decade, so by now I know pretty much every dip, every rally, and every sideways channel that makes up this particular pattern.

I remember where I was when the big moves took place, and I recall with great clarity my varying degrees of comprehension and incredulity over every meaningful change in direction.

Timing the Gold Price Bottom / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By Louis James, Chief Metals & Mining Investment Strategist

An interesting thing about the uptick in gold prices over the last couple days is the number of people asking me if I think gold has bottomed. This is somewhat amusing, since we all know that no one can time a market, and the questions are coming from my peers—professionals who should know better.

Gold and Silver Gain as Cyprus Back-Tracks on Selling Reserves / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

PRECIOUS METAL prices rose Tuesday morning in London, after the finance minister of Cyprus said selling some of the debt-laden Mediterranean island's gold reserves was "only an option" for raising cash.

"The possibility of selling gold is known, but only as an option," Harris Georgiades told journalists in Nicosia.

Petrodollar Recycling And The Gold Switch / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Andrew_McKillop

PRAVDA WILL SAY ITS THE COLLAPSE OF CAPITALISM
President Nixon's head of the Federal Reserve, Arthur Burns vigorously opposed the Nixon plan to “close the gold window”, decided at Camp David through 13-15 August 1971 because Burns saw it as admitting defeat in the struggle against inflation. He said the policy mix including a “free float for the dollar” would not stimulate jobs, or prevent wage demands. The dollar would be weakened further driving up inflation - to the delight of the Soviets.“What the boys around the White House fail to see,” Burns scribbled in his diary, “is that the country now faces an entirely new problem—sizable inflation in the midst of recession.”  He was overruled by Nixon.

Signs That the Silver Price Has Bottomed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jason_Hamlin

I have not written a public article in several months. This is mainly because I have been waiting for a buying opportunity to develop in precious metals. As a fairly aggressive investor with a high risk tolerance, I took a stab when silver originally dropped to technical support around $27. I have a few small cuts from attempting to catch the proverbial falling knife, but I was quick to release and walked away relatively unscathed.

Even Oil Executives Know Crude Oil Prices are Too High! / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

WTI is Tracking S&P 500 last Month

It is obvious that the oil market is out of touch with the fundamentals of a sluggish global macro-economic picture, and surging domestic and international oil production right now. The problem is that Oil, and especially WTI which is being tied to the S&P 500 bullishness, (i.e., stock market at all-time highs) is completely manipulated by hedge funds and investment banks and is harmful to the economy, businesses and consumers.

Continuous Commodity Index Points to Rally in Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

During the recent weeks we have seen commodities especially precious metals continue to drop in value. Market participant sentiment has become more bearish on commodities and couple that with a rising dollar it’s no wonder why we continue to see commodities as a whole fall in value.

Money has been flowing out of bonds at record levels this summer telling us most of market participants are feeling bullish on the stock market. This shift in sentiment of the masses are typical as they move their money from the risk on safer assets (bonds & commodities) and rotate into risk-on assets like stocks. While this is a bearish (contrarian sign) stocks could easily continue to rally for an extended period of time and possibly several more months before they actually top out.

Why is Gold & Silver, the Precious Metals Complex Falling ? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Rambus_Chartology

A subscriber asked me this week why the precious metals complex has been falling and if the charts could show the reason why. From the Chartology perspective it’s really a no brainier why this sector has fallen on hard times.

Many of you may recall the bull market that occurred, in the stock markets, back in the 1990′s which was a traders dream come true. During that time gold and the precious metals stocks were not even on my radar screen as I was too busy trading the tech stocks to even consider the precious metals sector. I couldn’t tell you the price of gold or what a junior miner was. All I knew was that the action was in the tech stocks and that is all that mattered to me at the time. I know a lot of you folks were trading the precious metals stocks in the 90′s and by looking at a long term chart for gold or the XAU, which has the most history, those were some lean years to say the least.

Gold versus the money supply / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Alasdair_Macleod

In a recent article I introduced the concept of allowing for the increased quantity of aboveground gold and the expansion of the quantity of dollar currency over time when trying to value gold. The purpose of this article is to explain why such an obvious adjustment is rarely contemplated and why it should be applied.

The reason no one adjusts the dollar quantity is we want to think of the dollar as having a constant value when we buy assets or goods. We describe prices of goods as rising or falling, and never the currency falling or rising. When we construct an index of house prices or stocks we do not take into account the debasement of the currency.

Gold Price Could Turn Bearish This Week / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: ForexPros

Gold recovered nicely over the last two weeks; this was expected on account of the completed five wave decline in black wave 3. If our count is correct, then the current pull-back is corrective wave 4, part of a larger incomplete decline in wave 5) of C. Note that now we can already count three legs up from the lows, which means that market could turn bearish very soon, ideally from around the 1300-1310 resistance area. However, only price can confirm a downtrend, which means a minor impulse down back to 1200. If this occurs, we will look for a decline in the 5th wave towards 1100 level or even lower. For now, the critical region stands at 1336 as wave 4 cannot trade into a wave one territory.
