General Outlook for Gold and the Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Vin_Maru

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeneral Outlook for Gold and the Miners - It is our firm belief that the precious metals sector has bottomed out and the downside is very limited from here on out.  While there doesn’t seem to be an immediate rush back into the sector, now is a great time to be acquiring physical metals, but more importantly producers with growth profiles. That’s where we really see the value and upside potential.  Now would be a good time to start adding and scaling into any new positions you plan on taking.

Key Profit Signals: Crude Oil, Gold, Silver and Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLooking beneath the Misinformation and Hype and Spin at Key Fundamentals and Technical Signals (“Deepcasting”) is essential for Profit and Protection.

But actually acting as a contrarian in the face of the weight of highly publicized opinion, is not always easy, but is nonetheless necessary. Case in point, a few weeks ago we recommended putting on a long Energy play based on our somewhat contrarian forecast that Crude and the Energy complex would Rally, short-term. And we forecast they would Rally notwithstanding the deluge of data which told us that the three Economic Growth Engines, the USA, Eurozone, and China, are slowing. And Rally they did and when the Signals said take profit, we recommended liquidation at about a 30% profit in 54 days.

Gold and Silver Regaining Footing As Treasuries Make Bearish Reversal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have always regarded the markets as a grand casino subject to the manipulations of the Croupier and the House. This being said it is only rational to react in the face of the irrational. I remember speaking to a floor specialist who informed me that he reads the same price charts that most technicians do. This means we should be careful of any traps or head-feints at this critical juncture.

No doubt the patterns tell us that we are testing support levels and that technical damage has been inflicted on most stocks including the precious metals. The weak hands inform that the golden bubble may have been broken and the warning inscription written on the entrance to hell "abandon all hope, yea who enter here" may be applicable. We do not agree and may be considering this recent downward move in response to Bernanke and Draghi a fake out and that we may witness a reversal sooner rather than later.

Is Gold Mining Healthy? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2011 gold-mine production came in at an all-time record high.  And in 2012 experts anticipate production to be even higher, edging above the previous year’s 87m-ounce tally.  From the looks of it, the major source of gold’s supply is in fine fettle.  But is the gold-mining industry truly healthy?

In attempting to answer this question it is important to understand how we got to the production levels we’re at today, and then take a look at some of the structural fundamentals that may impact this industry going forward.  And in terms of how we got here, it was nothing short of remarkable.

Gold Priced For Collapse / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhere is the gold price today? If you're like many Americans, you have no idea whether it went up, down, or sideways. Fortunately, I know my readers to be more informed - you likely know that after falling from almost $1900, gold has been trapped around $1600 since early May. But you may still be curious why despite continued money-printing and abysmal US economic reports, gold hasn't been able to hit new highs.

What Happens to Greece's Gold When They Exit the Eurozone / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWill Greece Exit the Eurozone?

With Germany's leaders telling us that the exit from the Eurozone by Greece no longer holds terror for them, we understand that they are prepared for such an eventuality. As the E.U. leader's representatives went to Greece this week to see the progress on the implementation of structural reforms and the austerity measures, it became clear to all that while we must wait for the results from them, Greece is failing in its efforts and further financing will be held beck for now, at least. Adding to the woes in Greece, there is little agreement within their Parliament. The Greek government is itself a broad mix of conservatives and Socialists.

Options Trading Strategy Tells You When to Buy Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: While most experts agree the long-term outlook for gold prices is still bullish, the yellow metal's pattern this summer can only be described as one of fits and starts.

In all, gold has made 11 short-term bottoms since May 29, the lowest being a close at $1,552.40 an ounce on June 28. Meanwhile, subsequent rally attempts have all quickly run into resistance, stalling out at near $1,620.

Silver Price Slammed Lower / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jesse

“He did not care for the lying at first. He hated it. Then later he had come to like it. It was part of being an insider, but it was a very corrupting business.”

The slam on silver seems to coincide with the ADP Report which was better than expected. Just now the ISM Manufacturing number showed a contraction at 49.8, so now it can go up again? Read full article... Read full article...

Global Conditions Conspiring For A Swift Upswing in Uranium Prices / Commodities / Uranium

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2011 China generated 82.6 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity from nuclear power stations, about 10% of the 800 billion kilowatt-hours US reactors produced in 2011.

China’s insatiable appetite for electricity will continue to drive the nuclear renaissance. Although the country currently produces less than 2 percent of its electricity needs from nuclear power, this percentage will increase rapidly in coming years to keep pace with demand that’s growing at an average annual rate of 10 percent.
