  • Oil Trading Alert: Sinking Or Rebounding?

    November 12, 2014, 11:01 AM

    Although crude oil moved lower after the market’s open, the commodity erased losses later in the day, hitting an intraday high of $78.04 as concerns over the situation in Libya supported the price. In this way, light crude gained 0.45% and bounced off the recent lows. Will we see a post double-bottom rally in the coming days?

  • The Negative Relationship Between Gold and the U.S. Dollar

    November 10, 2014, 2:22 PM

    There are strong reasons to claim that the relationship between the U.S. dollar and the yellow metal is negative. The appreciation of the U.S. dollar from 1980 to 1985 was accompanied by a decline in gold prices, while strong depreciation in the U.S. dollar from 1985 to 1987 was associated with an increase in yellow metal price. Similarly, a period of rise in the U.S. Dollar Index from 1988 to 2002 coincided with declining or flat prices of gold, while the depreciation in the U.S. Dollar from 2002 to 2008 was accompanied by the bull market in gold. Why does this correlation hold?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Up and Down Bitcoin Goes

    November 7, 2014, 11:53 AM

    Yesterday looked like an important day. This was because of the move up which took up late in the day. The volume was slightly lower than on the previous day but by no means weak. This was a fourth day of relatively elevated volume and rising closing prices. Is this a beginning of a new trend up?

  • What Crude Oil’s Ratios Are Saying About Future Moves?

    November 6, 2014, 5:35 PM

    Without a doubt, Oct was the worst month for oil bulls since May 2012. In the previous month, the commodity lost over 11% as the combination of a stronger greenback, rising supplies and weaker demand weighted on the price. Additionally, the first days of the new month have been very negative for oil investors. After the breakdown below the psychologically important barrier of $80, oil bears pushed the price lower and light crude hit a four-year low of $75.84, breaking under long-term support lines. In this way, the commodity posted its sixth weekly loss in a row. Will light crude drop any further in the near future? Is it possible that crude oil’s ratios will give us some interesting clues?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil - Oil Bears In Charge

    November 5, 2014, 11:07 AM

  • Gold Price in November 2014

    November 3, 2014, 10:41 AM

    Gold, silver and mining stocks plunged heavily last week. We saw major events such as breakdowns and we saw some key levels being reached. The miners’ slide, and the silver’s and gold’s breakdowns were widely commented, but there are additional developments in the ratios that investors and traders need to consider at the moment. In today's huge (over 2200 words and 10 charts) alert we discuss the critical juncture at which the precious metals market is at the moment and we cover the events that took place in key ratios: the gold stocks to gold ratio which moved to its 2000 low (if you recall, that's one of the things that we expected to see at THE bottom), silver to gold ratio, Dow to gold ratio, and also 2 ratios that very few people follow.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil – Time For Rebound?
