    GOLD

    I agree with this. I see silver as a bit like oil in that it has a gold-to-xx ratio that fluctuates about a bit that can be used for longer term trading positions to enter when cheap and exit when expensive. Gold is the currency to accumulate profits and had a nice resistance floor to hold and protect profits in. I guess at some point this summer we will see a test of that floor - perhaps at $1040 ish, where the Indians bought.

    GOLD

    Gold already at the races this morning........ Talking of which, it's the Grand National this weekend. For all precious Metal affectionados its got to be*: Silver Birch 66-1 But this horse, despite winning in 2007, is this year only a reserve. That leaves a tenuous second choice of : Cerium 50-1 Again a reserve, but very gutsy finishing 5th last year despite collecting a fractured skull in the process. Cerium is a "soft, silvery, ductile metal which easily oxidizes" (wikipedia) * Warning - betting is akin to short term trading. It would be embarressing to lose your knickers during the biggest horse run ever.

    GOLD

    Gold needs to keep up momentum here - looking (hoping?) to see it cross $1150 in the next day or two. Then we are on for testing the $ high. I'm always banging on about seasonality, but I am increasingly feeling that 2010 may well be different with a decent or strong performance possible this summer, perhaps even with a new $ top in the next month or so.

    Silver is leading gold up here. Through that 1115-20 sticky area

    GOLD

    I'm a big believer in gold seasonality and I'm hence a bit worried about buying more PMs over the next few months. Its almost April so the Sept-March season of strength is by previous years performance, over, I think there may be the usual summer doldrums in $ price, coupled by a rally in the pound while Britain remains delusional/brainwashed about its future up to the election. - Gold failing repeatedly to take out $1120 - is this a $ top before a doldrumsy summer? - A bounce in the $/£ rate may occur from now till UK election - I know its delusional as the UK economy prognosis post-election is dire. But a top in the £ price may also have now occured. I'm tempted to not buy more at the moment with things looking, to me at least, very 'toppy'. May sit and wait for a few months, perhaps partly in $ (I earn in £) Comments?

    GOLD

    Gold looking bullish today. Lets see if $1120 can be taken.

    GOLD

    Gold price seems to be stuck between c. $1140 and c. $1070 since the top of late last year. Now right in the middle at c. $1105.

    A trip down memory lane with this response to another textbook NY smackdown....

    GOLD

    Gold may be breaking out of the $1120 level today. US Dollar Index looking a bit toppish so there may be a few good weeks left for gold before the doldrums period.

    SILVER

    I see silver as a short term leverage on gold, but no longer as a buy and hold asset. It's great to own when there is seasonal upside potential, but less favourable during the summer doldrums. Just my opinion. Gold is the buy and hold, the silver the leverage that you apply when and if you feel able.

    Cheers Bubb, Im a bit snowed under with the day job at the mo but will test and verify my provisional results when I get some time, and post a corrected version. Any other technical indicators that would be of interest here?

    UK House prices: News & Views

    So technicals and fundamentals both point to a slide in UK house prices. The government intervention card has been played out in full, next to crack are the main stream media. At the moment, they are bullish, but lets see in the months ahead. Snow and Stamp Duty are a bit lame as excuses go. Watch for more and more sarcastic comments at the end of these 'spin' stories.... House prices fall for first time in 10 months thanks to bad winter and end of stamp duty holiday http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12...l#ixzz0gdg5aRWc

    UK House prices: News & Views

    Sorry for the double post - mods please remove if you want. From a posting I made on the monthly gold thread but perhaps more relevant and preservable in this thread...... I have used online datasets to calculate UK houseprices in gold and added an RSI and MACD calculator. So G0ldfinger’s style of charts are now augmented by some technical indicators. This is the first time I have done this analysis, so while it looks good by eyeball, I need to verify the values when I get a chance. In the meantime, any thoughts on the provisional results? My observations so far : +Since 1971, UK houses valued in gold look overbought when the RSI is at 70 or above. We are now still at RSI = 70 despite a huge drop from c. 700 ounces to c. 200 ounces since 2004. More drops ahead? +MACD histogram still positive in Feb 2010, but perhaps heading back to below zero. Again may suggest further drops looking at historical patterns of this indicator on this chart in months ahead.

    GOLD

    Hi RH It's a monthly chart, so the 12,26 and 9 are months. From my textbook reading, MACD (12,26,9) refer to sampling periods and since the Nationwide is a monthly index, I cannot really do more than a monthly sampling for the ratio of house prices-to-gold (I could interpolate but I feel that would badly affect the maths behind the MACD/RSI calculations.) This is the first time I've recreated technical indicators in excel - the results look right - but am happy to hear any feedback if someone spots an error.

    GOLD

    I'm doing some data analysis at the moment on historial gold prices........ I'm looking for an excel file that had daily prices back to circa 1971 in GBP. I can only find a file online back to Jan 2000, couresy of World Gold Council. Any help much appreciated

    SILVER

    Silver popped its head above $16 again. If this holds, I wonder if the G-to-S ratio may reduce back now to the low 60s at least (currently 69.6)

    GOLD

    Hi Errol I'm a 'buy and hold and accumulate' man for gold (not necessarily silver and platinum though). But life circumstances have got in the way - GF newly out of work and needs some help with fees for upskilling. I guess if there is one investment better than precious metals it is people. Provided the people come good that is! Edit - GF = girlfriend, not G0ldfinger.

    GOLD

    Anyone got a view of where the major resistance lines are now $1080 is cleared?
  23. dietcolaaddict

    GOLD

    It's a bit simplistic, but I think of gold as having a peak season floor now of around $1040 - with $1080 the first major support level above this. I can see perhaps a journey back under $1000 during this summer doldrums but not in peak Sep-Mar season. I prefer holding silver to gold early in this peak season (better upside potential from Sep-Dec) but like to hold gold more than silver late in the season ('The Ides of March') and during the Dreaded Doldrums of the summer. I have no idea or feel for the floor price in silver either now or in doldrums season, although that may just be me. EDIT - used £ symbol instead of $

    Gold going vertical pre-NY opening. Hope it gets to and holds $1080

    GOLD
