By: Frank_Holmes

Gold Stocks Half Way? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the calendar moving into the second third of the year, some of the popular delusions of the crowd seem increasingly remote possibilities. Have we been waiting a year for QE-3? But like a broken clock, those forecasting QE-3 to be imminent still have a shot at being correct. At the same time, some are chopping down the AAPL tree. Already down 10% from the high, the leading delusionist on that stock is still forecasting a $1,000 price. Gold seems well short of $2,000. Would that be still or again? And the pick up trucks loaded with Silver ready for the ride to $100? Well, seems most have broken down in the middle of the road. And the Gold stocks? Perhaps about half way to the bottom.

Gold Stocks Continue to Underperform Gold Bullion / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Willem_Weytjens

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have written (and warned my readers) several times about the weak performance of the HUI index compared to the price of Gold.
Despite general stock markets approaching pre-crisis highs and Gold holding up quite well so far, the HUI index has dropped quite substantially. The combination of weak performance of HUI stocks and the relatively “strong” action of Gold, caused the HUI index to underperform Gold dramatically.

Gold's Continuing Vulnerability / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe investment world is currently full of paradoxes. For example, whilst the Gold Bugs Index (the $HUI which is made up of more speculative counters in precious metals) has been deteriorating strongly – see chart 1, courtesy stockcharts.com – the ratio of the $HUI/$XAU shows that the $HUI has been rising since early 2011.

Gold and Silver Miners Put Real Money Where Their Mouth Is / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

In precious metals, it has been a trying time for miner investors. Despite gains in bullion prices, gold and silver miners have lagged behind. Since January 2011, the SPDR Gold Trust has gained 15.5 percent, while the iShares Silver Trust has increased 2.5 percent. However, miner ETFs such as the Market Vectors Gold Miners and the Global X Silver Miners have both fallen 23 percent in the same period. While it may appear to be all doom and gloom in the mining stocks, the companies themselves are signaling better days ahead.

Many Signs Point to Gold Higher Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Reserve Bank of India on Tuesday surprised investors with a bigger-than-expected half-percentage-point cut to its key lending rate, sending it to 8%, saying the state of India's economy is "a matter of growing concern." Assuming a normal monsoon season, continuing improvement in industrial production and in the global outlook, the RBI said it expects growth for the current year at 7.3%. Inflation in India slowed less than expected in March. Indians, who love gold in any case, could turn to it as an inflation hedge. Meanwhile, the Indian Post office system is offering a 6% rebate on gold coins of various denominations for the forthcoming Akshaya Tritiya festival, which is one of the biggest gold buying festivals in the country.

China Economy Dragging Commodities Lower / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommodities have been sinking like stones since late February, an unusual divergence from the rallying stock markets.  This relentless weakness has wreaked havoc on commodities sentiment, leading traders to abandon commodities stocks.  As we all try to make sense of this surreal bloodbath, one catalyst keeps coming up.  Western perceptions of the Chinese economy have been a real drag on commodities.

China is indeed one of the major drivers of this past decade’s secular commodities bulls.  As the world’s most-populous country, it has over 1.3b people who collectively consume vast amounts of resources.  China sports the fastest-growing major economy on the planet, which has recently catapulted it to become the world’s second largest after the US.  China is also the second-largest importer on Earth.

Inflation and Hidden Gold Taxation Historical Case Studies / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dan_Amerman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe number one reason investors buy gold is to protect against the government policies that create inflation. However, the government has "rigged the game" in such a way that the higher the rate of inflation, the more of a gold investor's net worth ends up with the government instead of the investor.

An examination of three historical case studies of long-term gold investment during a time of substantial inflation shows how under existing law and tax rates, the US federal government used the 1-2 combination of inflation and taxes to not only take all gold investor profits, but to confiscate part of the investors' starting net worth as well. These three real world analyses explore gold acting as a perfect inflation hedge, gold experiencing asset inflation, and gold experiencing asset deflation.

How to Profit from the Bakken Crude Oil Shale Boom / Commodities / Crude Oil

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Did you ever wish you'd been around for the California gold rush of 1849? Or the Texas oil boom of the early 1900s?

Maybe you can't go back in time, but you don't have to.

COMEX Reduces Silver Margins Yet Again / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

After raising margin requirements for silver futures contracts eight times last year, the CME Group has decided to lower margins yet again, after having last lowered them on February 13th. 

Last year’s margin requirement hikes increased the cost of holding silver futures positions by 80 percent and was one of the key factors contributing to silver’s sharp decline last May.
