Gold, Silver, Copper & Oil-Oh My!

Gold prices hit a five year low earlier this week and some have attributed the decline that Chinese investors are selling to meet margin demands.  There’s also less  Chinese demand for copper, silver,  iron , oil and palladium and that decreased demand will continue through the rest of the year. You also have to factor in the relation of a stronger US  Dollar to weaker commodity prices overall.

Precious Metals Take a Dive in September

Precious Metals Take a Dive in September

Precious Metals Take a Dive in September-Image by digitalmoneyworld via Flickr

Nelson Louie, Global Head of Commodities in Credit Suisse’s Asset Management division, said, “Investor and consumer sentiment has continued to deteriorate and this may further impact the rate of economic growth.  However, fundamentals for certain commodities remain positive.  Prices will continue to be sensitive to exogenous shocks (i.e. labor unrest, geo-political risk, weather related disruptions) in the face of tightening global supplies and higher demand over the last several years.  While investors have been increasingly focused on a possible sharp China slowdown this year, the main source of volatility in commodities demand over the coming months may be derived from European economies rather than from China.”

Christopher Burton, Senior Portfolio Manager for the Credit Suisse Total Commodity Return Strategy, added, “Overall, fiscal and monetary policies in the US and Europe are expected to remain accommodative.  In addition, the amount of easing and the length of the stimulus period are likely to increase as policy makers continue their debate.  Such measures will most likely increase the odds of greater-than-expected inflation over time.  The reconciliation of these issues can impact traditional asset classes and commodities in different ways.  We believe investors will continue to benefit from the long term diversification benefits that commodities provide.”

The Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index Total Return was down by 14.73% in September.  Overall, 17 out of 19 index constituents decreased in value.  Industrial Metals was the worst performing sector, given the sector’s high correlation with global growth, ending the month down 20.06%.  Signs continued to suggest growth would slow in the developed world while worries over the sustainability of China’s growth intensified.  Chinese and European Purchasing Managers Index (“PMI”) readings came in weaker than expected.  However, Chinese trade data has continued to hold up thus far.  Refined Copper imports continued their recovery from April’s lows; Aluminum imports rose sharply, turning China once more into a net importer; and Zinc imports climbed strongly month-on-month.  Agriculture ended the month lower, losing 18.97%, as grains led the complex lower on improved weather conditions and better-than-expected inventories.  Precious Metals also ended the month lower, losing 15.61%, led by Silver. The flight to US Treasuries and demand for US dollars towards the end of the month resulted in Gold being liquidated alongside other assets.  The Energy sector posted a loss of 11.23%, with all components trading lower.  While global Crude Oil demand growth has slowed from the high base of last year, fundamental data releases remain broadly supportive for the crude complex and demand remains healthy versus historical standards.  Livestock was the strongest sector, gaining 7.65% for September due to continued strong export demand and falling grain prices.

The Credit Suisse Total Commodity Return Strategy group periodically produces updates on relevant industry topics. For a copy of the team’s white paper, “Commodities Outlook: Increased Volatility, Increase Opportunity?“, please email csam.commodities@credit-suisse.com.

About the Credit Suisse Total Commodity Return Strategy

Credit Suisse’s Total Commodity Return Strategy has been managed for 17 years and seeks to outperform the return of a commodities index, such as the Dow Jones–UBS Commodity Index Total Return or the S&P GSCI Total Return Index, using both a quantitative and qualitative commodity research process. Commodity index total returns are achieved through:

  • Spot Return: price return on specified commodity futures contracts;
  • Roll Yield: impact due to migration of futures positions from near to far contracts; and
  • Collateral Yield: return earned on collateral for the futures.

As of September 30, 2011 the team managed approximately USD 10.1 billion in assets globally.

An investment in commodities is not a complete investment program and should represent only a portion of an investor’s portfolio management strategy.  Investment in commodity markets may not be suitable for all investors. Commodity markets are highly volatile and the risk of loss in commodities and commodity-linked investments can be substantial.

Certain risks relating to investing in Commodities and Commodity-Linked Investments:   Exposure to commodity markets should only form a small part of a diversified portfolio. Investment in commodity markets may not be suitable for all investors. Commodity investments will be affected by changes in overall market movements, commodity volatility, exchange-rate movements, changes in interest rates, and factors affecting a particular industry or commodity, such as drought, floods, weather, livestock disease, embargoes, tariffs and international economic, political and regulatory developments. Commodity markets are highly volatile. The risk of loss in commodities and commodity-linked investments can be substantial. There is generally a high degree of leverage in commodity investing that can significantly magnify losses. Gains or losses from speculative derivative positions may be much greater than the derivative’s original cost. An investment in commodities is not a complete investment program and should represent only a portion of an investor’s portfolio management strategy.

FX Broker Offers New Charting Service

Autochartist’s ambition is to listen to their client’s needs and offer valuable solutions, to this end their new service, named “AlpariAM”, is completely geared towards giving traders as much valuable information as possible, and in the shortest achievable time, for opportunities in the Forex market. It’s almost like a take-away espresso – it packs a lot of punch while being quick and easy to digest.

AlpariAM is based on the world-renowned technical analysis service that made Autochartist so popular among retail traders. The identified opportunities are visual signals that people find easy to understand and use to quickly formulate their opinions on market direction. This, in combination with other basic technical indicators such as RSI and moving averages, gives AlpariAM the potency that enables traders to assimilate the information in a short time.

Indeed, this product is aimed at traders who need a quick overview of the forex market. The interface is simple and intuitive with both text and images that describe key levels of support and resistance. This is available in eleven languages, and graphically illustrates the patterns that have formed with the direction in which price movements are expected to move.

The Chief Operating Officer of Autochartist, Erik Voges, says, “The simplicity and crispness of this interface is enough to please most traders , but the real power behind this interface lies with the amount of information that it enables traders to absorb in a very short time.”

Since Alpari account holders are spread far and wide across the globe, it makes sense for these reports to be released three times daily, at the opening of trade in the 3 most influential forex markets, starting with Tokyo in the morning, and followed by London and then New York. With each update around a dozen of the latest chart pattern formations are displayed on the currency pair graphs. These opportunities typically have a lifespan of between 6 to 40 hours, during which they can be considered trade-able.

Autochartist currently boasts a high statistical average – around 70% of chart patterns reaching their forecast levels. With such a remarkable track record, versatile tools and commitment to their clients, Autocharist remains the global leader in chart pattern recognition.

“We are very excited to launch an innovative new research tool like ‘Alpari AM’ in partnership with a high-caliber name such as Autochartist. Our long-standing relationship gave us the opportunity of being the first broker in the FX space to offer this product making our clients the first traders to sample it in action.”, said George Tchetvertakov, Head of Market Research at Alpari (UK).

About Autochartist

Forex Broker Expands Services to Include ECN

Forex Broker Expands Services to Include ECN

Forex Broker Expands Services to Include ECN-Image via Wikipedia

As a result of this merger, ITFX will be a prominent leader in the Online Forex industry as one of the most diverse and user-friendly Forex Trading platforms to fulfill the clients’ needs and expectations in this complex industry. It will not only allow them to access ECN and STP on MT4, but give them diversification in their trading techniques and allow them more options to advance to the next level of Online Trading. http://www.investtechfx.com

ECN brokers are the purest breeds among all Forex Currency Exchanges. They don’t profit on spread difference; their only profit comes from commission. ITFX is transforming as part of a merger to enhance their Forex ECN services as well as their functionality when it comes to completing worldwide transactions in the Online Forex Market .

InvestTechFX’s current management team proposed the creation of a new management company designed to expand upon its core strengths as a software solutions company providing the MT4 platform for FX Trading. The proposal was approved in August 2011 which includes a merger with an Asian-based operation. The merger will allow InvestTechFX to offer clients direct access to (ECN) Electronic Communications Network as well continuing STP service. Previously, ITFX acted strictly as a Straight Through Processor (STP) and No Dealing Desk (NDD). As recognized in the industry, ITFX was solely a Non-Dealing Desk Software Solutions Company that processed clients’ trades on the STP network uninterrupted to the Interbank. Now with this new merger, ITFX will be joining the latest trends in the Forex Trading Industry by moving to the Forex ECN style of trading while maintaining STP status.

Deal Desk Brokers contrast in many diverse ways. The differences that separate types of brokers in the Forex Market break down into three major groups:

There are market makers, which trade against traders to make a profit as well as manipulate their spreads. In addition, some customers of market makers usually experience delayed orders. Another style of broker known is STP, this kind of broker sends orders directly to the Interbank. STPs offer the option of fixed or variable spreads which often benefits all parties. Finally ECN’s offer variable spreads based on supply, demand, volatility and other conditions in the market and in return allow the trader to trade on very tight spreads. Forex ECN’s also have a larger pool of traders compared to STPs and which gives faster execution of orders and no re-quotes to the customers.

As the above suggests, the Forex ECN Network presents a much better environment in terms of the client’s needs and expectations with regards to pricing, faster execution of orders, variable spreads and convenience of no re-quotes.
After the launch date September 1, 2011, the new format will allow ITFX, the 0.5 PIP fixed provider, to maintain its NDD status while enabling them to operate in both ECN and STP networks. With this new format, they will be able to increase their competitive edge as well as allow clients more options within their Forex Trading techniques. http://www.investtechfx.com

Forex Broker Offers Risk Management Tips

Here are three tips on forex risk management from award-winning broker FX Solutions ( http://www.fxsolutions.com).

Keep your trade sizes sensible

Even the most experienced trader can be outmanoeuvred by the breakneck pace of the foreign exchange market, not to mention the leverage involved in forex trading [http://www.fxsolutions.com/learning-tools/forex-glossary.asp ]. Leverage can boost your profits, but it can also magnify your losses in the same way should the markets move against you. Every forex trader gets things wrong at some point, so never trade more than you can afford to lose. A bad trade is forgivable – an overtrade is not.

Know your markets and the activity around them

As Sandy Jadeja, Technical Strategist of FX Solutions, states: “The methods of utilizing technical analysis are many and varied. They include such ubiquitous concepts as head and shoulders, support and resistance, trends, moving averages, and double-tops.”

Fundamental analysis also brings a host of potential catalysts into consideration in the form of major economic reports and news events. Analyse both past technical data and news feeds to gain a clearer picture of the state of a currency.

Make use of all the tools available

FX Solutions offers free newsfeeds, tutorials, forex charting packages [http://www.fxsolutions.com/learning-tools/charting.asp ] and more, all of which can provide you with invaluable support and insights into workings of the foreign exchange market.

Another effective tool to minimize your potential downsides is to employ stop-loss orders on every trade you place. Stop-losses automatically exit a position when a trade reaches a certain price point, therefore limiting losses or locking in profits depending on the point at which they are applied.

For example, imagine the euro is about to rise against the U.S. dollar, and that you have opened a position of 100,000 units at $1.4500. Placing a stop-loss order at $1.4460 would limit your maximum loss to $400 while also giving the trade room to potentially turn around should the market start to move against you.

Capital Financial Global, Inc. (OTC:CFGX), announced today that it has acquired a 100% interest in the St. Louis Gold Mine in Clark County, Nevada.

The St. Louis Mine is comprised of Arctic, Atlantic, Pacific, Baltic, and Antarctic Lode patented gold and silver mining claims situated on 85.54 acres of property located in Clark Country, Nevada, approximately four miles north of Searchlight, Nevada, a well-known gold mining area.

The move is consistent with the Company’s stated long term strategy to back its lending operation by gold and precious metals so it can be insulated against another credit crisis, wherein much of the world’s core assets were devalued almost overnight.

“I want to make sure the back-bone of this company consists of assets that have intrinsic value and that can be freely traded anywhere in the world without being subject to third-party appraisals or local housing prices, and precious metals are really good for that,” said Mr. Paul Norat, CEO of Capital Financial Global, Inc.

Mr. Norat further stated, “Every monetary system in the world is supposed to be backed by gold, it only makes sense that we aspire to do the same.”

About Capital Financial Global, Inc.

Capital Financial Global, Inc. (OTC:CFGX) is a specialty finance company that facilitates the movement of credit and illiquid assets in the secondary debt markets, by originating new loans, buying and selling existing loans, and by converting assets upon which these loans are secured into cash or trade-able form.  The company is publicly traded on the OTC Markets trading system under the symbol CFGX.

Our Business Model

The Company makes money by originating new loans, buying and selling existing loans, and by converting assets upon which these loans are secured into cash or trade-able form.

Our Basic Strategy

The Company looks for opportunities for arbitrage by exploiting price differences in assets and interest rates due to distressed economic conditions rather than deterioration in the intrinsic value of the assets themselves.

Market Segments

The market segments the Company operates in are: residential & commercial real estate, insurance trusts and pension funds, precious metals, and investment grade government securities. The Company will also aggressively pursue any other opportunities that falls within its overall strategy.

Gold Coin Investors Get Help with Counterfeits

Aurum Advisors is now adding a counterfeit coin pamphlet with the free gold investors guide. “We want consumers to be able to determine on their own what the difference is between a good coin and a coin that is graded or slabbed by a subpar grading service,” says Aurum Advisors President, Marc Lubaszka. It is uncommon for investors to receive counterfeit coins as long as they stick with the two most prestigious grading services in the nation, which are the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) & Numismatic Grading Corporation (NGS).

Those are the only two grading services that are used in the new pamphlet, and pictures are provided of what each sonically sealed container that encapsulates each coin looks like. The guide also contains the par code that corresponds to each coin and the hologram that guarantees the authenticity.

“It’s important for investors to feel confident when they purchase gold coins, so we felt it was important to add something to our free gold guide that shows them what they can expect to purchase before they decide to buy,” said Lubaszka. “Even if a consumer doesn’t buy from us, after getting our free gold guide they will be more prepared when purchasing gold from another dealer.”

For more information and to receive the free gold guide, please visit http://www.goldcoinsgain.com/.
