Gold Bottom Targets Trend to $4000 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been so much talk about gold and so little understanding of the reality behind the move in the price of the yellow metal over the last 90 plus days that I think it’s necessary to separate the wheat from the chaff. I want to discuss what gold has done, where it’s at now, and then end with where it’s going from here and postulate why it’s going to do what it will do.

Using Options To Hedge Against a Gold GLD ETF Collapse / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt SK Options Trading, we primarily use the SPDR gold trust (Symbol: GLD) for exposure to the gold price. GLD is an exchange traded fund, designed to track the price of one tenth of an ounce of gold. GLD currently holds around 1280 tonnes of physical bullion, the sixth largest holding in the world, preceded only by the U.S. Germany, the IMF, Italy and France. The major benefit of using an ETF such as GLD is that one can gain exposure to the gold price as easily as buying a stock and one can effectively trade gold options as easily as trading stock options.

Why Has Gold Been Down? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: In spite of some short-term fixes, there remains no real resolution to the sovereign debt issues in many European countries. We're certainly not spending less money in the US, and now we're bailing out Europe via currency swaps with the European Central Bank. Shouldn't gold be rising?

Gold Stocks Complete First Major Bottom Since 2008 / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll bull markets have to endure a plethora of corrections and all bull markets have to endure a handful of major corrections. The gold stocks are no different. In fact, due to nature of the mining business and the high-beta status of these stocks, it is very easy for investors to forget that they (the gold stocks) are in a real structural bull market. Corrections and crashes are commonplace and yes, even in a bull market. Yet in 2011 the gold equities did not crash. They merely digested and consolidated the massive recovery gains from 2009 and 2010. This persistent consolidation has left many scared, frustrated and distrustful of the sector at precisely the wrong time. Gold stocks have quietly completed a major bottom, their first since 2008.

How to Buy Silver, Bullion, Coins and ETFs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Krauth writes: Silver prices soared as high as $50 an ounce last year before experiencing a brief correction that took it back below $30.

However, despite this blip, mounting inflationary pressures, a weakening dollar, and emerging market demand will see silver retest its record highs in 2012. In fact, this time around it could even climb as high as $150 an ounce.

Silver Industrial Demand - The Commodity to Watch / Commodities / Steel Sector

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Forecasting the future of the economy is a difficult task; one who can do it with regularity will most certainly see massive investment profits.  Most of this complexity comes from the lack of clarity in commodities prices.

Commodities earn their price from demand.  Most commodities are tied to a specific industry – palladium is a barometer for autos, while steel is a barometer for real estate.  Some commodities are then related entirely to geography – copper is the commodity for a growing Asian economy, while oil is the commodity for all emerging markets.

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBaker Steel Capital trades on its analysts' "intellectual capital and technical expertise" when it comes to knowing when and where to invest.

Wild Gyrations in Gold and Commodities / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf traders in the commodities markets were to check into a Psyche ward, the files would no doubt read "Bi-Polar" or Schizophrenic." This is so, because commodity traders have a habit of fixating on a set of data one day, and then quickly forgetting about the data the very next day, and re-focusing on something else. Market sentiment often turns on a dime, and without notice. This shifting of sentiment in commodity futures is nothing new, of course. That's why for decades, dabbling in commodities was considered too risky for most investors, since sentiment, by definition, is unpredictable and impossible to measure.

Gold Price Facing Resistance Cluster / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Right now my technical work is undecided as to whether gold and the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) established THE corrective low on Dec 29 at 148.27. What I think I do know is that the upmove so far from 148.27 to today's high at 157.02 (+5.9%) has propelled the price structure into a very heavy cluster of resistance.

This resistance is represented by the simple and exponential 200-day moving averages, the prior Sep-Oct bottoming period, and my declining shorter-term EMAs of 14, 30 and 50 days.
