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.

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSPOT MARKET prices to buy gold in Dollars dropped to below $1710 an ounce Friday morning, reversing gains from earlier in the week, while stocks and commodities fell and the US Dollar rallied ahead of the release of key US jobs data.

Why Gold will benefit from the Global Debt Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most common questions that I’m asked goes something like this: “If the deflationary long-term cycle is in its ‘hard down’ phase until 2014, why should we expect gold’ value to rise? Shouldn’t we instead expect to see a rising dollar along with a falling gold price?”

Gold Bullion Held Within America and Foreign Countries, Much Is Really There / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: InvestmentContrarian

With the rise of instability within the European Union (E.U.), gold bullion has become increasingly attractive as a backstop. Next to America, Germany has the second-largest holding of gold bullion, with approximately 3,600 metric tons. What is interesting at the current moment is that many voices within Germany are calling for the Bundesbank, its central bank, to check its international holdings, namely in the U.S., as not all of the gold bullion held by Germany is being stored on the country’s own soil.

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE PRICES to buy gold rose to 7-session highs in London on Thursday morning, touching $1726 per ounce even as new data showed US employment rising at its fastest pace since February.

The private-sector ADP payrolls report said the US added 158,000 jobs in October. Earlier data from the manufacturing sector in China, the world's #2 gold consumer, showed its slowdown to be easing.

Why is Crude Oil Price Falling? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter a losing streak, crude oil futures fell as low as $85.69 a barrel -- the lowest price since July.

Predictably, the mainstream energy market observers have blamed the drop on "global economic worries." Of course, we have pointed out before how, on one recent occasion, oil fell in the face of positive economic expectations. And on another recent occasion, oil fell despite the absence of any real news, period.

Central Banks Gold War Begins! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA nasty Golden Harp could soon have its cords plucked, with the resonance working to shake loose the bankster cover of improper illicit duplicitous and probably highly illegal usage of Allocated Gold Accounts. When diverse scattered accounts are pilfered and depleted without authorization in Switzerland, resulting in several multi-$billion class action lawsuits in Zurich, all kept dutifully out of the news, that is one thing. But when a few key official government gold accounts are ransacked in systematic fashion from established trusted locations, defying and betraying the trust of the German Govt and other national governments, that is quite another. To be sure, the system can tolerate ransacking and replacing with scurried harried efforts the Venezuelan gold account like in 2011. The media told the story with creativity and aplomb, avoiding the truth, inventing a tale, but finding a credible pile of dung to feed the public, which swallowed it whole.

Incredible Gold Charts Show Bullish Outlook / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Degraaf

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTechnical analysis is a great tool for analyzing where the market has been. Since human beings almost always behave in cyclical fashion, we can observe patterns in market action that tend to repeat. Combined with fundamental studies, TA is applied to the markets by virtually all of the successful traders.

Some patterns occur so often that names have been assigned to these patterns such as: ‘Head and Shoulders’, ‘Cup with Handle’ and ‘A.R.A.T.’

United States Continuing Decent into Debt Will Push Gold Price Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Giuseppe_Borrelli

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWay back in the 1970’s the US began a fateful transition, a transition where we started to confuse the concept of an asset with that of a debt. After the Great Depression it was frowned upon to have debt and that included mortgages on a house, and when a mortgage was paid off all the neighbors would get together and celebrate the event. In fact they would usually burn the cancelled document after consuming a reasonable quantity of alcohol! Well, those days are long gone. Thanks to the Alan Greenspan’s and Ben Bernanke’s of the world, debt was mistaken for an asset. The biggest offender, and role model for the world, is of course the US Federal Reserve.
