How to Profit from falling Gold prices

Whilst the last decade has been good for Gold bulls we have also had some very good opportunities to make money from falling gold prices. One of the easiest ways for those in the UK is to use Financial Spread Betting. For example IG Index are currently quoting 1593.4 to sell and 1594.0 to buy so if we went to back a view that Gold is going lower we would sell at 1593.4 in this example I have gone short £100 a point (the minimum  is £10 with IG Index).

At some stage we will want to close our bet so we will then want to buy to close. The difference between what we sold at and the lower price that we can buy back to cover at is our profit. Of course if we are short and Gold prices carry on going up then we would have to cover and buy back at a higher price.

The Luck Factor – Learning to be Lucky

Something a bit different but very related to what we do.

I found an interesting site and book called the Luck Factor written by Dr. Richard Wiseman based at University of Herefordshire (UK).

Most of you know I am a big believer in psychology and a constant student of human behaviour. Markets and business is all about psychology and beliefs and as our man Tony Robbins says “80% is psychology and 20% is the mechanics” – you can have all the software, real time data and systems you like but if your psychology and your believes are out of whack then it’s not going to work. That is why my Making Money from Financial Spread Trading program has been such a success – it takes a different approach.

I hate it when people say “you’re lucky” as the truth is we make our own luck and more importantly it’s how we deal with negative events and “bad luck” and how you turn those negative events around.  I get people that say that there are no opportunities! Please open your eyes – every day I find plenty, it’s never been as easy to be a millionaire and multi-millionaire as it is today.

You can download a short insight to what the book is about here and the full version is available on Amazon.

Goldman Bearish On Commodities Near-Term; Positive On 1 Year

Goldman Bearish On Commodities Near-Term; Positive On 1 Year

LONDON, Apr 15, 2011 (Dow Jones Commodities News via Comtex) — Goldman Sachs maintained a bearish stance on commodities on a near-term basis, but raised several of its one-year prices estimates in a note to clients Friday.

While recommending a shift to an underweight commodity allocation in the short-term, Goldman analysts reiterated their view that several commodity markets, led by oil, will see demand outstrip supply later next year.

As a result, the investment bank raised its 12-month price forecasts for WTI and Brent crude oil, RBOB gasoline, USGC heating oil, Nymex natural gas, U.K. NBP natural gas, CBOT corn and NYBOT cocoa from previous estimates released in late March.

The most significant increase was in corn, which saw a 20% bump up in its one-year forecast from 580 cents a bushel to 700 cents a bushel. The bank increased its 12-month forecasts for WTI and Brent crude oil by 50 cents each, to $103.50 a barrel and $107 a barrel respectively.

“We maintain that commodity returns still have upside on a 12-month horizon, particularly following the correction in oil prices that we anticipate, barring further oil supply shocks,” the bank said in a note to clients. “We therefore maintain an overweight recommendation to commodities on a 12-month horizon.”

The note follows Monday’s announcement that Goldman is closing its long crude, copper, cotton and palladium basket trade, or CCCP, due to unfavorable near-term risk-reward indicators.

Mr T on Bloomberg – Gold short term top?

By Vince Stanzione

I am not a fan of business TV but out of the two I have always ranked Bloomberg more professional than the game show hosts at CNBC.

So it was strange that the A Team Mr T was on Bloomberg, of course I understand that this was a bit of fun and Mr T is starring in US TV adverts for Cash in your Gold, but I worry is this a short term Gold top? We have come a long way fast and taking at least some profits now ($1385) does not seem a bad idea, but long term the trend remains very much up so don’t go out and sell your gold chains yet.

With Financial Spread Betting you can back all major commodities and profit from up or down moves. to learn more go to
