Silver Demand - Money Versus Commodity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The silver market often seems to be like burning both ends of a candle at the same time. Basically, somewhere in the middle the two flames are bound to meet and cause an explosion in price.

Many long term precious metal investors have wondered whether silver is just another commodity component of the CCI, or if it will eventually reassert itself as money?

The Great Precious Metals Managed Retreat / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany observers, notably GATA, have characterized the more than decade long run up in the precious metals markets as a managed retreat orchestrated by the big bullion banks.

These banks typically profit by using their large transaction size and deep pockets when the market is vulnerable to induce substantial price variations, often by triggering stop loss orders placed by short term speculators.

Gold $4,000! Yes, But When? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: DeviantInvestor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are hundreds of predictions for the price of gold. Some say it will crash to nearly $1,000, and others proclaim $3,000 by the end of 2012. The problem is that some predictions are only wishful thinking, others are obvious disinformation designed to scare investors away from gold, and many are not grounded in hard data and clear analysis. Other analysis is excellent, but both the process and analysis are difficult to understand. Is there an objective and rational method to project a future gold price that will make sense to most people?

By: Ben_Traynor

The Secret Return to the Global Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough it happened more than 40 years ago, many Americans still rue the day back in 1971 when U.S. President Richard M. Nixon effectively took this country off the so-called "gold standard."

Under a true gold standard, paper notes are "convertible" into pre-determined, fixed quantities of the "yellow metal."

What actually happened back in 1971 was that President Nixon - facing huge budget and trade deficits, and a plunging dollar - enacted a series of economic moves, including the unilateral cancellation of the direct convertibility of the U.S. dollar into gold.

Gold Seasonality Chart Shows November as Strongest Month / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jason_Hamlin

In statistics, many time series exhibit cyclic variation known as seasonality. For precious metals investors, understanding seasonality can help to determine when to buy and sell at optimal price points. Analysts often mention gold’s seasonality and refer to the “Summer doldrums” as a buying opportunity and the Winter months as the high season. To verify gold’s seasonality and identify opportunities to profit from the trends, I decided to update the data and charts that I had originally created a few years ago. The new chart has some variations from the past, but the overall trends remain mostly the same.

Putting Gold Bullion and Gold Stocks in Proper Context / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals complex had a great rebound at the end of the summer but is now in the midst of a correction. Recently we wrote that the correction was nearing an end. We believe that to be the case. A short-term bottom could occur sometime this week. However, the precious metals sector was unable to retain much of the very strong momentum it previously had. Thus, the metals and stocks will need some time to confirm support and generate positive momentum before they have a chance of breaking to new highs. That being said, we wanted to take a broader view and analyze the sector in its current context in comparsion to the past.

A Second Chance For All Gold Investors! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Darah_Bazargan

Not long ago, in the article entitled, "The Final Run in Gold," I outlined a sequence of specific events that called for an imminent correction in Gold. Contrary to this viewpoint, the pervasive narrative among analyst at that time was forecasting the metal price to reach as high as $2,000 an ounce. Of course, this expectation never came into fruition, nor was it rational enough to give any credence either.

Gazprom to Produce Shale Oil / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Pravda

As soon as the United States launched a campaign to promote shale, this type of energy stopped being trendy. The new trend is shale oil, and "Gazprom", as an avid trend-follower, will produce it. The reserves of this type of oil are twice as large as the reserves of conventional oil. This means that the potential profit calculated in the minds of the gas industry, would grow significantly.

Gold Time to Buy, Buy, Buy! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you aren't already in, Monday or Tuesday should represent an exceptional buying opportunity as gold moves into its final intermediate cycle bottom.

Now that the 38% retracement has been breached I would look for a final exhaustion move to test the 50% level early next week as we move into the elections.

U.S. Presidential Elections and Stock and Gold Price Swings Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe summarized our previous essay (Oct 31, 2012) by stating that the correction in metals may not be over yet. It looked like it’s over in case of the mining stocks, at least in terms of price.

This has been quite a week. Not only has the hurricane Sandy showed us how vulnerable we are to the large and indifferent forces of nature, but we also saw how markets can plunge even though the fundamental situation did not deteriorate. In the short run markets don’t act on fundamentals – they move based on investors’ emotions and short-term price swings will always be present. Just as we can’t eliminate weather’s unpredictability, we can’t control what will happen on the market in the short run, even though we are convinced about the existence of the gold bull market. There are some things that we can do about it though – in both cases we can prepare to some extent. In case of the stock market and the precious metals market we can use charts and technical analysis to estimate what may be waiting just around the corner. In the following part of the essay we will do just that and we will focus on stocks, crude oil and gold markets.

Gold Stock Investors Chasing the Rainbow / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Lee Hatcher was born June 24th 1867 in Montague, Texas. He arrived in Alaska in 1888. Hatcher had started prospecting in White Oaks, New Mexico, came north at twenty-one, spent time prospecting in Atlin, Canada, and southeast Alaska before heading to south-central Alaska.

In September 1906, Hatcher located hard rock gold. The Skyscraper Vein was a quartz gold claim 1,200 feet above the floor of Fishhook Valley and nearly 5,000 feet above sea level. It was on a ridge below Skyscraper Mountain in the southern Talkeetna Mountains.

Silver SLV ETF Impact / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver is no doubt tiny on the grand commodities scale.  But its attractiveness, spearheaded by a 1000%+ bull-to-date gain to its latest high, has spawned a wide range of products for investors to partake in.  And one of the most unique and powerful is the SLV iShares Silver Trust ETF.

This ETF’s objective is quite simple, to mirror the price of silver (minus a small management fee of course).  But while simple in its objective, two unique traits have allowed SLV to take the silver market by storm.  First is SLV offers a bridge for stock-market capital to track the price movements of a high-flying commodity, which historically had only been an arena for the futures guys.  And second is it uses this capital to buy the physical metal.
