The Gold Stocks are Tracking Past Equity Bull Markets / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll bull markets have similarities and all equity bull markets have strong similarities. They go through similar phases. Most bull markets start off slow and then build towards what we like to say is an acceleration into a bubble and potential mania. In last weeks editorial we noted how bull markets, prior to the bubble phase, tend to make major bottoms every three or so years.  Yet, in looking at the present bull market in gold stocks and comparing it to the previous three equity bull markets (Technology, Japan and Gold Stocks) we find stronger and deeper similarities which confirms to us that the gold stocks are in the bull market of our time.

Who Really Owns Your GoldĀ Stocks? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDo you own gold and silver mining stocks?  Or any stocks for that matter?  Even if you say, "yes", chances are you don't really own them.

It is one of the dirtiest little secrets in the brokerage business.  And 99.9% of people have no idea it is even being done to them.  It's called "street name registration" and it's how the brokerage where you hold your stocks "registers" your shares.  To save money and time, and to allow your shares to be included as assets that THEY can use to do what they want with, your brokerage never actually registers you as an owner of the shares.

Two Gold Related Long/Short Pair Trades For 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePair trading is a trading strategy based on the concepts of statistical arbitrage and convergence. Typically it involves being long one security and short another. For example one may believe that Apple would outperform Microsoft, so one buys Apple and shorts Microsoft. A pair trade may also involve two trading two markets that usually move close together but have drifted apart, for example the US and UK stock markets. If the FTSE has rallied strongly when the S&P has not, the trader may decide to short the FTSE and buy the S&P, taking the view than the US stock market will catch up to the performance of the UK stock market. Whilst our primary focus is on trading options, we have identified what we believe are two attractive pair trades for 2012.

Correction Over in Crude Oil? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Increasingly, my near-term work is "warning" me that the correction in NYMEX crude oil from its Jan 4 high at 103.74 likely ended at this morning's pre-market low at 100.83.

A climb above 102.05/15 will confirm the low and indicate that a new up-leg is in progress for oil and the U.S. Oil Fund ETF (USO) that should propel futures prices towards 106-108 next.

Can Gold and Silver Overcome U.S. Dollar Strength? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

According to the most recent data, commercial banks’ overnight deposits at the European Central bank reached a new record high of 464 billion euros. Another record high in ECB deposits shows that European banks would rather lose money than take the risk of lending to each other. It is also the latest reminder that nothing is solved in the euro zone crisis. However, the U.S. financial markets have been able to decouple from Europe, for the time being. Even more decoupling can be seen in precious metals.

Euro Hits New Lows, Swiss Franc Bounces: What does it means for Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommodities In Characteristic Selloff

Once again at the end of 2011 we heard the voices of negation sounding the fear of the bursting of the commodities bubble. The naysayers come out with their Cassandra calls whenever commodities go into a characteristic and salubrious selloff. They never really learn to respect the importance of gold (GLD) and silver's (SLV) role in the long range secular multiyear ongoing rise.

Silver Head and Shoulders Top Suggesting Price Crash / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA large and very bearish looking Head-and-Shoulders top appears to be completing in silver which portends a severe decline and thus a deflationary downwave. However, a factor complicating the picture in recent weeks has been the COT structure for silver and sentiment indicators, both of which look very bullish. For reasons that are set out in the parallel Gold Market update, the COT is believed to be highly deceptive at this time, and with regards to sentiment indicators, there is the scope for readings to get even worse (even more bullish) in the event of a breakdown and severe decline.

Gold Strongly Bearish Price Patterns and COT Confusion Cleared / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have in recent weeks been rather confused by the contradiction between the strongly bearish price patterns that are developing in gold and silver, which are indicative of a major top that portends a brutal deflationary downwave, and the seemingly bullish COTs and sentiment for the sector. Now we believe that we have come to a realization with regards to what is going on with the COTs, which will be set out lower down the page - first we will look at the price pattern development.

Crude Oil Prices Moving To Red Alert / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeak oil is moving back fast as permitted dinner time talk - and office time action with futures and options. And the reasons are multiple, well known, but heavily discounted until now. Through late 2011, many times, the IEA's chief economist Fatih Birol has outlined how radically the IEA sees the oil price outlook, particularly the coming and fast intensifying trend of reserve depletion hitting onshore, mature, conventional oil production. Lost in the climate crisis talk however, the oil price message was often sidelined.

Was 2011 a Springboard for Gold 2012? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Jeff Clark, Casey Research writes: 2011 was remarkable in many ways for the precious metals markets. Gold soared to new highs in early September, hitting at an intraday record of $1,920/ounce on the fifth. Silver screamed to within a hair of $50 on April 28. Corrections ensued, and the metals ended the year on a disappointing note for silver and an underwhelming note for gold. Equities for the sector were down, to way down for junior ventures, logging their worst annual return since 2008.
