Will Oil Inflation Destroy America Or Will 2011 Be The Year of The Rabbit? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe good news is that the Saudis are saying $70 to $80 is “Fair”. The bad news is they may change their minds and with oil knocking at the door of $90 and some OPEC malcontents muttering $100, they are starting to look a bit wobbly.  Or even if they are “steadfast”, perhaps they won’t be able to pump enough oil to contain prices?

In 1985 OPEC was holding back 11 million barrels a day of capacity, in 1995 that had dwindled to 2 million a day, today no one is sure. The leverage to keep oil prices down is a function of how much “ammo” you have.

Silver Monster Move in the Making / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Ronald_Rosen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe don’t often see a chart that promises us a monster move. When we finally discover one it usually comes with a number of ifs. This quarterly logarithmic silver chart, although promising us a monster move, is no exception to the rule of ifs. The ifs are clearly outlined. Will the price of silver close over the mid trend line? If the price of silver does close over the mid trend line will it have a 5 wave move as did Major Wave One?

Gold & Silver Not Crowded Trades as J.P.Morgan Materially Cuts Short Silver Position Says Source / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD rose to 1-week highs above $1400 per ounce overnight in Asia on Tuesday, rising as the Dollar fell on the forex market, before slipping back after new data showed much stronger-than-expected US retail sales and factory-gate inflation for November.

Crude oil slipped from $88.70 per barrel, and base metals also dipped.

Commodities Have Detached from US Dollar, Are Rising in Real Terms / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the first phase of its bull market in the earlier portion of the last decade, Commodities began a bull market on the back of a falling US Dollar. The greenback declined while commodities, stocks, foreign currencies and even bonds rallied. The universal bull market could be better termed a dollar bear market. The movement of risk assets and especially commodities were, in most cases, hostage to the trends in the buck.

Gold Makes Record Run / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleINCIDENT: On 7 December, gold hit an all-time high above US$1,425 per ounce (London morning fix), after having risen from under $300 per ounce at the beginning of the millennium and from just over $700 per ounce only a little over two years ago (all figures in current dollars).

SIGNIFICANCE: While the recent spike in the price of gold has already been somewhat redressed, new drivers in the market suggest increasing demand for the precious metal.

Gold Prices and Panic / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith gold selling for around $1,400 per ounce, it seems like everyone has jumped on the yellow-metal bandwagon. Resource-investment guru Rick Rule said about gold investing recently, "we're no longer lonely in the gold trade. You couldn't describe this as a contrarian activity, and you couldn't describe this as a low-risk activity."

Gold and Silver Rise on Higher Chinese Inflation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE PHYSICAL GOLD hit a 3-session Dollar high in London on Monday morning, rising together with equity and commodity prices on what one trader called “relief” that Beijing did not hike Chinese interest rates as expected at the weekend.

The Euro also rose to its best level since Thursday vs. the Dollar, capping the gold price in Euros at Friday's finish beneath €33,750 per kilo – its second-highest ever weekly finish.

Gold Still a Potential Head and Shoulders Pattern Top? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStill a potential head and shoulder pattern or not?  See the short term analysis below.  With all that’s happening in the world one would expect gold to go through the roof.  It may still do so, in fact I believe it will, but the question is will it do so NOW or sometime in the future?

The Energy Investment No One Is Talking About / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week I discussed the country's dire need for energy infrastructure improvements and expansion, and how you can use the First Trust Clean Edge Smart Grid Infrastructure ETF (GRID:NASDAQ) to capitalize on that need. Our evolution into hybrid and eventually full electric cars is a major driver of this need for a better grid and is my topic today.

Why Does Gold Fall When the Dollar Rises? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are all used to reading that gold rose because the dollar fell or that gold fell, because the dollar rose. The picture conjured up is one of traders racing in to actually buy or sell gold as they watch the exchange rate move. When U.S. Treasury yields rose this week, the dollar strengthened slightly and the gold price dropped. When we watched this happen it seem to happen immediately and precisely and we were led to believe that much more was happening than met the eye. After all if gold moves in the opposite direction to the U.S. dollar, this implies that it is moving not just with but almost riveted to the euro. What's the story behind this?

High Long Bond Yields Are Good News for Gold Holders / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Richard_Daughty

The Financial Times brought up the interesting point that because bond prices are so insanely high (making bond yields so preposterously low), a one-percent change in yields would negatively impact the prices of bonds much more than a one-percent change if bond yields were higher, which I assume means in the normal 3-6% range.

Gold Mania Still Ahead, TSX-V Chart Speaks Volumes / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis Articleby Andrey Dashkov, Casey’s International Speculator : With the gold price hitting nominal highs last month, there is a lot of “mania” and “bubble” ranting going on in the gold community. Should we start selling?

A bull market typically progresses through 3 phases: the Stealth Phase, in which early adopters start buying; the Wall of Worry Phase (or Awareness Phase), when institutions begin buying and every significant fluctuation makes investors worry that the bull market is over; and the Mania Phase when the general public piles on, driving prices beyond reason or sustainability.

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's all about who you know. Stephen Taylor, fund manager of Chicago-based Taylor International Fund, Ltd., has cultivated a grassroots network of contacts from Canada to China since working as a trader in the '80s. It's that network that has produced some of his fund's biggest winners. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Taylor talks about his fund's bet on vanadium and why he doesn't own any Chinese mining companies.

The Gold Report: Stephen, could you please give us an overview of your fund and how you manage it?

Opposite Trend Paths Forecast For Crude Oil and Gold / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Bari_Baig

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis coming weekend’s OPEC meeting is perhaps the quietest of all OPEC meetings we’ve come to know of since we have been trading energy. Absolutely nothing is expected of this meeting and the street too has then no guesstimate wars and everything seems to be rather calm. Few of the members have voiced their opinion that they feel Crude is under speculative control and therefore even if Crude’s price traded $100 per barrel they would not step up to increase the production as no fundamental change has taken place or rightly unless there is no fundamental change. Seems fair enough and we too agree with it.

Gold Current Decline is a Correction, Opportunity to Add to Gold and Silver Investments / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe picked up the Asian addition of The Wall Street Journal this week and on the back page was an article titled “China reveals Huge Appetite for Gold.” The article states: Gold’s record rally has been attributed to everything from worries about inflation, the dollar and the emergence of exchange-traded funds. One big factor many may have missed: huge buying from China.

We haven't missed it. We have been writing about the rising Chinese demand for gold in many previous updates.

Something’s Wrong in the Silver Pit, and It’s Much Bigger than J.P. Morgan / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen researching the precious metals, often times things are seldom as they appear on the surface.  GATA Secretary and Treasurer – Chris Powell – has said that the true picture of a nations’ gold holdings are, “more closely guarded than their nuclear secrets”.

This has been more-or-less proven true based on the Federal Reserve’s reaction to GATA’s 2009 FOIA request for information concerning GOLD SWAPS. The Fed is ON RECORD admitting they’ve done gold swaps – which, by definition, necessarily utilize sovereign American gold stocks.

Gold Stocks Are Still Cheap / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this week, the flagship HUI gold-stock index powered up to new all-time record highs.  While fantastic for gold-stock investors and speculators, such lofty achievements inevitably cement more big bricks on top of the wall of worries.  At their highest levels in history, are gold stocks wildly overbought and doomed to correct hard?  Provocatively, a strong case can be made that they actually remain cheap!
