Barrick Gold, Manuka Resources, Newmont - Has the bottom been reached?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver

After the Federal Reserve once again raised the key interest rate with a big step of 0.75 points to a range of 3.75% to 4.00%, the pace is now likely to slow down step by step. In the process, voices are growing louder, calling for a departure from the strict monetary policy. In the course of this, precious metal prices reacted and distanced themselves significantly from their lows for the year. The signs are pointing to easing. At least in the short term, gold and silver should be ripe for a pronounced countermovement.

Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont, Glencore - Long-term positioning in gold makes sense

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Investments

The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.

BYD, Globex Mining, Newmont, Freeport-McMoRan - Copper with doubling potential

  • Mining
  • Copper
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility

The price of copper has lost around a third since March of the current stock market year. Investors are selling the metal, which is known as an economic barometer, due to global recession fears and concerns of a drop in demand. However, due to the great importance of copper with regard to the energy turnaround, the tide is likely to turn again soon. Mining companies and commodity traders are already warning of a massive shortage of the world's most important metal. Goldman Sachs expects the price of copper to reach USD 15,000 per ton by 2025, which would mean a doubling of the current level.

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Newmont - Eyes are on the FED

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Copper
  • Inflation

On Wednesday, September 21, the FED is expected to raise interest rates again. After the poor inflation rates in the past week, the fear of a large interest rate step of 100 basis points is going around. The indices reacted immediately and priced in the possible rate hike. So did the gold price, which has been suffering from rising interest rates and the strong dollar for weeks anyway. It does not help that gold has long been considered a hedge against inflation. The precious metal cannot currently take on this function, but that could change if the expectation of Stanley Druckenmiller, a billionaire and former hedge fund manager, is correct that the stock markets will hardly yield any returns in the next 10 years. So today, we look at three gold companies.

Precious metals producer Manuka Resources facing transformation, what are Barrick Gold and Newmont doing?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Copper

The precious metals gold and silver were able to start a rally with the beginning of the Ukraine crisis. With high inflation rates, gold was supposed to be the safe haven, but the strength of the US dollar and interest rate hikes pushed the gold price back down. Additionally, according to Wirtschaftswoche, Ukraine sold USD 12.4 billion worth of gold, more than the country officially owned. However, since gold bounced up at the important USD 1,680 level and was also able to break the downtrend line, now might be the time for gold. Today we look at the two big players, as well as an emerging precious metals producer.

Long-term bottom reached? - Barrick Gold, Manuka Resources, Newmont

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities

In 2022, a stock market year characterized by geopolitical uncertainties and major inflation concerns, investors were definitely wrong if they followed the old stock market adage "Sell in May and go away". Although the German stock market barometer DAX only marked a new low for the year of 12,385 points in July, it has since risen steeply by around 1,500 points. The precious metal gold was also able to turn around after a successful test of the critical support zone at USD 1,680 per ounce and set off for new highs after breaking through the USD 1,800 mark.

Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont - Gold stocks facing a renaissance?

The strong dollar has weighed on the gold price in recent weeks. However, the strength of the US dollar is rather a weakness of the euro. While the FED raised interest rates to fight inflation, the ECB hesitated. While the ECB recently raised interest rates by 50 basis points, it was 75 in the US. In addition, the energy crisis in Europe, especially Germany, is putting additional pressure on the euro. For US exports, this is not good news. Therefore, the markets gratefully accepted Jerome Powell's statements. The chairman of the FED wants to slow down the pace of interest rate increases. The gold price also jumped in response. We look at three companies that should benefit from a rising gold price.

Is Elon Musk making a move on Standard Lithium? News from Newmont and Tocvan Ventures

  • Lithium

  • Mining

The sentiment of investors in lithium and gold stocks could hardly be more different at the moment. Shares such as Standard Lithium and Livent are recovering significantly from their interim phase of weakness. The entire sector is benefiting from positive comments by Tesla founder Elon Musk. There is also speculation that the wealthiest man in the world could take a stake in Standard Lithium. It would make perfect sense for Tesla. In contrast, all hope seems to be fading in the gold sector. Heavyweights like Barrick Gold and Newmont are trading near 52-week lows. The latest setback was Newmont's numbers. However, the dividend yield is now tempting, and there are also positives from the gold sector. Canadian explorer Tocvan Ventures reported convincing drill results.

Gold price close to long-term buy signal - Desert Gold, Newmont and Barrick Gold in waiting position

  • Gold

Gold reached a new low for the year with the interim slide below the psychologically important mark of USD 1,700 per troy ounce. Thus, the precious yellow metal, which is supposed to act as a crisis currency, completely lost the gains since Russia's invasion of Ukraine. In the short term, there is now the threat of another test to the downside in the area of USD 1,600 per ounce. In the long term, gold should regain its role as an inflation hedge and a currency against major crises. It is, therefore, slowly time to build up anticyclical positions.

Barrick Gold, Barsele Minerals, Newmont - Gold stocks are under pressure

  • Gold

With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price rallied and came close to all-time highs. However, gold was then subsequently sold off again. The reason could be that the Russian currency is backed by gold. If one wants to sanction Russia, one must care for a falling gold price. If Russia lacks money, it would have to sell its gold, which would also put pressure on the gold price. The second theory is contradicted by the fact that the Russian central bank continued to buy gold at the end of March, albeit below the market price. The situation on the gold market should relax when the Ukraine conflict ends. Therefore, it is now time to look for the right gold company.
