Oil Price Decline may Reverse Trajectory from July - Here's Why

I believe that this most recent drop in oil prices is not being caused by the actual fundamentals of supply and demand. Those fundamentals are actually improving the bullish case for oil — slowly, but steadily. Starting in July, we should start to see a more bullish (and accurate) view of the global oil supply-and-demand fundamentals hit the mainstream.

Thinking about Buying Gold? A Major Opportunity about to Ignite

You won’t uncover this signal for buying gold by visiting mines, studying gold production, or watching CNBC. A major buying opportunity is about to ignite in everyone’s favorite precious metal. A simple chart is all you need to look at to make money in gold in 2017. This hidden opportunity kicks off on the date June 23 – this Friday – That’s TOMORROW.

Buying Gold is the Important First Step to “Freedom Insurance”

Buying gold is perhaps the easiest step you can take towards diversifying your savings. When you buy gold, you trade in paper money for a hard asset that’s been a stable store of value for thousands of years. Gold is universally valued. Its worth doesn’t depend on any government. In other words, simply buying gold is the easiest way to lessen the political risk to your savings.

With Several Opposing Factors, can we expect Higher Oil Prices anytime soon?

One factor that could prevent oil prices from falling further is the possibility that prices floundering in the mid-$40s actually puts a lid on shale production. If U.S. shale underperforms over the next year, the OPEC deal could succeed in balancing the market. But if U.S. shale continues to rise & OPEC fails to extend its deal beyond the first quarter of 2018, oil prices could fall to $30 per barrel.

Oil Prices are most Definitely Heading to the Upper US$30s

Oil is in a downtrend and risks trending into the $30’s. The future might be bright for oil prices but the present is not. Any immediate price gain would be “wishful thinking”. Oil producers are no longer hedging their production because oil prices have fallen too much. US shale continues to grow production & Libya is adding large volumes of supply back onto the market at the worst possible time.

Silver seems to be Coiling Back now for a Big Leap-Up soon

In 2016, silver was very strong in the first half of the year and weak in the second half. The first half of 2017 has been something of a wash, setting up something potentially big in the next half of the year. The silver chart shows prices winding up within a huge wedge pattern. A few more weeks of consolidation are still possible before a decisive break out from the pattern.

A Bearish Tilt to the Gold and Silver Market - A Great Risk-Reward Setup

Gold is about to see the 50 DMA above the 100 DMA above the 200 DMA. This golden cross setup is seemingly timed to catch people off-guard given the poor sentiment we see now, yet will trigger buy signals for technical traders & algos. And if you think the stock market won’t be allowed to drop because it’s never allowed to drop, ask yourself WHO has not been allowing it to drop for the last 8 years?

Don't Worry, Gold Prices Will Rise - These 7 Worrisome Signs Will Ensure It

Even if markets continue to rise in the interim, gold prices will rise. Since late 2015, gold has outperformed the S&P 500 by 30%. While the outlook for the US economy is more positive than it was 12 months ago, if we zoom out for a moment, the big picture ain’t so rosy. Gold has historically done well in times of uncertainty & panic & with these 7 worrisome signs, there could be plenty ahead.

Fed Rate Hikes hurt Stock Markets, but are Bullish for Gold Prices

Gold futures speculators get so worked up about Fed rate hikes that they sell too much leading into them & in their immediate aftermaths. That spawns selling exhaustion, leaving big room to buy in order to mean revert those extremely-bearish gold futures bets back to more-normal levels. So covering excessive gold futures shorts & new longs buying catapults gold prices higher in the wake of rate hikes.
