  • What Can Happen with Gold If the Dollar and the Euro Collapse?

    December 18, 2013, 10:34 AM

    The dollar's "imminent" collapse has been discussed for years now. How can you stay protected in case the unlikely does in fact materialize? What about the euro?

  • Further Declines or Rally in Oil Stocks?

    December 17, 2013, 12:48 PM

    In our previous commentary, we checked the impact of the recent decline in the oil-stocks-to-oil ratio on the oil stock index. Since that time, the XOI has declined once again and reached important support lines. Because of that, we’ve decided to check whether this weakness changes anything in the overall outlook or not. We invite you to check our today’s essay. Have a nice read.

  • Bernanke seeing the difference between tapering and tightening

    December 16, 2013, 10:50 AM

    Bernanke gave a speech, which could be seen as a sort of testimony or farewell (probably one of many coming soon). The message he has sent was in perfect compliance of what has been communicated for some time to the public.

  • Can Gold Make Sense If the Dollar and the Euro Do Not Collapse?

    December 13, 2013, 12:00 PM

    In one of our previous essays we considered what implications for gold the collapse of the dollar or the euro would have. Today, we discuss a different scenario: one in which the currencies hold up in spite of the enormous debt burden. Are the perspectives rosy for precious metals even if the greenback and euro don't deteriorate completely? We give you some reasons why investing in gold may be a good idea even if serious changes in the global currency system are not just round the corner.

  • 3 Signs of Gold's Upcoming Decline

    December 13, 2013, 6:35 AM

    This week was full of action for precious metals investors and traders. Gold, mining stocks, and (especially) silver rallied in the first days of the week only to disappoint on Wednesday and Thursday. No wonder; the rally didn’t have “strong legs” as gold’s strength was meager compared to that seen in the euro - another USD alternative.

    In today’s essay we will provide you with 3 gold-related charts; each will tell a different story about gold’s performance, but ultimately, they will all point in the same direction.

  • Oil Stocks - Change of Trend or Just a Correction?

    December 12, 2013, 10:00 AM

    In our last essay on oil stocks, we checked the oil-stocks-to-oil ratio to find out what impact it could have on future oil stocks’ moves. Back then, we emphasized the strong positive correlation between the ratio and the oil stock index in recent months. Taking into account the fact that we have seen a downward move, which took the ratio below the lower line of the gap between the April 2009 low and May 2009 high, we've decided to find out what impact this event had on the oil stock index. We invite you to check our today’s essay. Have a nice read.

  • Charts Suggest Decline in Crude Oil May Be Over

    December 10, 2013, 1:33 PM

    In our previous essay, we examined the situation in crude oil in different time horizons. Back then, we wrote that the short-term situation had improved as crude oil had broken above both short-term resistance lines on relatively high volume and had come back above the previously-broken medium-term support line and the long-term one. In the following days, crude oil extended gains and approached its 200-day moving average. What’s next? Is the worst already behind oil bulls and we will see further improvement? Is it possible that three ratios will give us clues? If you want to know our take on these questions, we invite you to read our today's essay.

  • Tapering or Tightening?

    December 9, 2013, 12:23 PM

    The American central bank is still planning to make sure that the banking system has enough Dollars at hand to keep them afloat. What may change is the tool affecting that process.

  • What’s Next for Gold?

    December 6, 2013, 7:20 AM

    The precious metals sector was weak in the previous weeks and it remains weak today as well. Gold, silver, and – to some extent – mining stocks rallied on Wednesday and many investors and traders were led to believe that the worst was over. Is it?

  • Crude Oil - Current Outlook

    December 5, 2013, 3:11 PM

    November was another hard month for oil bulls. Market participants pushed crude oil down 3.6% as rising supplies weighted on the price. With this downward move, light crude hit a fresh monthly low of $91.77 and broke not only below the short-term support, but also the medium-term one. Despite this deterioration, this week, crude oil rebounded and rallied to a fresh five-week high for a fourth straight session of gains. Does this mean that investor sentiment is improving? Could we see further growth in light crude? What is the current technical picture for the oil market? If you want to know our take on these questions, we invite you to read our today's essay.

  • Mining Stocks Suggest Further Declines

    December 4, 2013, 1:28 PM

    In our previous commentary, we focused on the U.S dollar, the euro and their impact on precious metals. Since that essay was posted, gold, silver and mining stocks have extended their declines and dropped to fresh monthly lows. Will they drop any further in the short term? We want you to be effective and profitable investors. That's why we take a look at the situation from different perspective and examine gold and silver mining stocks to find out what kind of impact they can have on precious metals’ future moves. We invite you to read our today's essay.

  • Will the Strong Resistance Zone Stop the Oil-Stocks-to-Oil Ratio’s Rally?

    December 2, 2013, 12:22 PM

    In our previous essay on the oil-stocks-to-oil ratio, we focused on its implications for crude oil. Back then, we wrote that there was a strong negative correlation between the ratio and the price of light crude, and if the ratio declined, we would likely see the bottom of the current correction. However, taking into account bearish signals from the oil stocks index charts, we’ve decided to check this ratio to find out what impact it could have on future oil stocks’ moves. We invite you to check our today’s essay. Have a nice read.

  • What now for Janet Yellen?

    December 2, 2013, 11:55 AM

    The certain fact is that Yellen is ready to continue with Fed’s expansionary operations.

  • Dollar, Euro and Their Influence on Precious Metals

    November 29, 2013, 11:21 AM

    At the beginning of the week, gold, silver and mining stocks declined and dropped to their fresh monthly lows. Although we’ve seen some improvement in recent days, precious metals still have been trading in the narrow range. Is this a sign of strength or just a pause before the major plunge? Is it possible that the dollar and euro will give us some interesting clues once again? If you want to know our take on these questions, we invite you to read our today's essay.

  • Silver’s Long-Term Support Line Has Been Reached. What’s Next?

    November 27, 2013, 11:28 AM

    Earlier this week, after four straight weeks of losses, silver extended its declines and hit a fresh monthly low. With this downward move, the white metal reached its initial downside target created by the long-term support line. Taking this fact into account, investors are probably wondering what comes next. Will this important support stop further declines and encourage buyers to act? Or maybe, silver will test the strength of the next support level in the near future? If you want to know our take on these questions, we invite you to read our today's essay.

Feb Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

The complexity and uniqueness of the gold market make people differ in their opinions about it. Some say that the precious metals are under the thumb of central bankers, while others blame big banks and their use of derivatives (‘naked’ shorts) and high-frequency trading for the declines in the price of gold. There are also worries about the discrepancy between paper gold and physical gold, the fairness of London trading, declining inventories at Comex and leasing of gold by central banks. We will try to examine these views so investors have a better understanding of the gold market and its true drivers.
