Gold and the Next Great War / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet's turn our attention to a cycle which we've rarely discussed over the years. The Kress 24-year cycle is one of the components of the 120-year cycle series which is scheduled to bottom in 2014. The 24-year cycle tends to get eclipsed by the longer-term cycles like the 40-year and 60-year cycles (both of which have a major impact on equity prices and the economy). But the 24-year cycle takes on a special significance all on its own: it's the cycle of war.

Why Gold, 'In Extremis?' Are We There? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIran

Last week we informed you that Iran claims to hold 907 tonnes of in gold reserves.

This week we're informed that Iran is using gold or oil to buy food as new financial sanctions have hurt its ability to import basic staples for its 74 million people. The difficulty paying for urgent import needs has contributed to sharp rises in the prices of basic foodstuffs, causing hardship for Iranians with just weeks to go before an election seen as a referendum on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's economic policies.

Silver Prices Soften as Greek Tragedy Continues / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Prices for precious metals met resistance as Greece continues to be the main focal point in the ongoing European financial crisis. Despite agreeing to strict austerity measures, including cutting 15,000 public sector jobs and cutting the minimum wage by 22 percent, the coalition leaders would not agree to make substantial cuts in supplementary pensions.

Gold Fire Sale, Buy Now Sale Ends Soon / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInverse Lin-omena, the inverse of the Jeremy Lin phenomena where the unknown and previously discounted suddenly rise to prominence; here, the powerful and previously secure suddenly fall.

Today, central bankers, the mandarins of capitalism, are in disarray. Their attempts to contain capitalism’s current crisis increasingly resemble the tactics of a defeated army in retreat. Like Napoleon and Hitler’s respective “Moscow moments”, the 21st century economic crisis has brought to an end the bankers’ spectacular 300 year run at the table of power and wealth.

Will Gold Cleanse The World From Dirty Fiat Currencies? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

On Wednesday, precious metal prices climbed higher as European finance officials considered delaying parts or even all of a second bailout package for Greece. Although gold and silver prices often move inversely of the U.S. dollar, all three edged higher on the news. Despite a temporary boost in the dollar this month, gold and silver continue to receive support from extremely loose global monetary policies.

Gold Demand Trends Show Chinese Growth, Indian Weakness / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE MARKET prices to buy gold bullion slipped further on Thursday in London, falling to a three-week low beneath $1709 per ounce as a raft of positive US data buoyed the Dollar, and fresh rumors broke of a Eurozone exit for Greece.

Last night's phone-conference of Euro politicians said that Greece must accept extra budgetary oversight if it is to get the extra bail-out funds to meet March's critical bond-repayment deadline.

Broad Market Nearing Resistance while Gold Stocks Basing After Bottom / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the gold stocks have enjoyed a decent recovery, they have certainly lagged the broad market which has almost broken out to new highs. Should you be worried that a major shift is in place? Hardly. The fact is the broad market is in the latter stages of its a cyclical bull while gold stocks just completed a major bottom. Don't call us doom and gloomers because we do not foresee a real bear market. The last phase of a secular bear market tends to be mild in nature but coincides with a strong move in resources, higher inflation and higher interest rates. In looking at the charts, we expect 2012 to be a transition year in which precious metals reemerge while the broad market peters out at resistance.

Gold, Silver Heading Up / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRoger Wiegand, editor of Trader Tracks, says cycles will bring gold and silver higher in the first half of 2012: gold up to $2,050/oz and silver up to $44/oz or even $50/oz. He sees plenty of opportunities for volatility given the political and economic situation in the U.S. and the EU. In this exclusive Gold Report interview, Wiegand reveals names of mining companies poised to profit.

The Gold Report: Roger, you attributed the recent uptick in the gold price in part to large funds bidding up the price. But these funds have also shown their willingness to sell their gold positions to cover their short positions. Can gold investors look forward to more volatility this year?

Copper Price Forecast, The Fall of The Chinese Miracle 2012 / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJaroslaw Suplacz writes: Firstly, cycles

The copper consumption has been strongly polarized in recent years. China uses more copper than North America and Europe combined. A drop in copper demand in China alone will signify a global crisis in industries pertaining to this natural raw material.

Despite the high and long-lasting economic growth of China (“despite” and “because of it”) one must remember that economy develops in economic cycles, including long lasting ones, after the economic boom of the Middle Kingdom, there will be a deep recession. The financial system of China may prove to be a bubble and currency reserves, although they appear enormous, will lose their significance against the scale of outstanding credits which were used to finance, among other things, rushed government investments – all of it is still ahead of China.
