Will Platinum Outperform Gold? / Commodities / Platinum

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Platinum and gold have been playing a game of tag, and this week, platinum took the lead again regaining its rightful position up front, but for how long?

Looking back at history, platinum has been the front runner with an average $200 to $400 premium to gold. At times the difference was much greater. Before the 2008 Lehman Brothers crash, platinum was trading at more than $2,270 per ounce while gold was trading under $990 an ounce. The prices as of close of this week's issue were $1,686.50 for gold and $1,694.30 for platinum.

Gold The Single Best Investment of 2013? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

The amount of bearish sentiment towards gold prices these days on the part of investors is not surprising to me. Investors often work in herds, moving to “hot” sectors from “weak” sectors very quickly. But, as I have said all along, the “gold play” is a long-term one, not a speculative one.

Economics 101: if demand for an asset or item increases, prices rise. If supply of an asset or item increases above demand, prices fall.

Gold Price Setting Up for a Massive Breakout in 2H 2013 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

This piece expounds upon what we covered last week. In that piece, regarding Gold, we concluded:

If Gold is able to firm up here and now then it has a good shot to rally back to $1750-$1800 over the next few months. If we get the bullish scenario and a fundamental catalyst shift then expect Gold to break past $1800 in Q3. That would mean that Gold consolidated for two years which would be its longest consolidation on record. The longer the consolidation, the more explosive the breakout.

How Green Are Gold's Blue-Chip Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Casey_Research

Andreay Dashkov writes: Disenchanted with gold's lackadaisical performance over the last year, some investors are losing interest in the equities that are supposed to provide leverage to the metal's price movements. The press has added fuel to the fire by increasingly attacking gold-mining CEOs for rising production costs and weak stock prices. This has driven some investors to pursue ETFs or other vehicles as a replacement for gold stocks, while others have simply thrown their hands up and left the precious-metals space. Is this overreaction or rational decision-making?

Hugo Chavez: Dictator vs. Gold Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2013

By: Dudley_Baker

What’s really happening in Venezuela with gold properties?

Is Chavez, alive or dead? Will he return? How will these answers affect the gold properties in Venezuela?

From our friends at ResourceInvestingNews.com they reported in a January 7, 2013 article:

“Chavez seized 988 companies between 2002 and August 2011, according to a report from Conindustria, a Venezuelan industry chamber. He also nationalized the country’s gold mines in September 2011. At the time, the biggest foreign miner operating in Venezuela was Rusoro Mining (TSXV:RML), which had two producing mines in the country, along with 10 exploration properties. The seizure sent Rusoro’s stock tumbling 16.7 percent on the day the announcement was made, according to Mining.com.

German Gold Panic, What Do German Central Bankers Know That We Don’t? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Graham_Summers

Ben Bernanke and the rest of the US Federal Reserve bet the farm that they could engage in countless monetary interventions, keep interest rates at zero, and print over $2 trillion in new money without damaging the US’s credibility.

They were wrong. Indeed, Germany just fired a major warning shot to the US Federal Reserve.

On Monday, Germany announced that it will be moving a significant portion of its Gold reserves out of storage with the New York Fed and moving them back to Germany.

Germany Is Bringing It's Gold Back Home, You Should Too! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: DailyWealth

Dr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: Germany wants its gold back...

The European nation wants to bring home 300 tons of gold currently held at the U.S. Federal Reserve and all 374 tons held at the Banque de France.

Why does Germany want all of its gold OUT of France? Legendary investor Bill Gross has a thought about that... On Twitter, he asked, could it be that "central banks don't trust each other"?

Gold, Silver, and Real Assets to Shelter from The Coming Storm / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: DeviantInvestor

What Storm?

  • A hurricane of digital money created by central banks to purchase government debt and other dodgy assets from banks.
  • A tidal wave of deficit spending by governments around the world. It continues, regardless of whether you call it business as usual, stimulus, payoffs, or bailouts.
  • A perfect storm of derivatives – the weapons of mass financial destruction that continue to plague our financial system – but make $Billions (Maybe $Trillions) in profits for the huge banks.
  • A tornado of bailouts, giveaways, loans, and currency swaps from the Federal Reserve to backstop banks, politically connected individuals and corporations, European governments and others.
  • An approaching thunderstorm of new and higher taxes – perhaps a carbon tax, a VAT, and a wealth tax. We hope most of these will be downgraded to a hot air disturbance.
  • A tsunami of Japanese Yen based on the election of Prime Minister Abe and his avowed intention to weaken the Yen
