Silver the Restless Metal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: William_Bancroft

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver is a much smaller market than the gold market and quality research about the poor man’s gold can be less easy to find. One academic who does stand out though is the late Professor Roy Jastram, whose works on gold lead him to an investigation into silver’s monetary history and record. His book ‘Silver: the restless metal’ is much cited by silver experts like David Morgan, but being out of print is now not that easy to get hold of. The Amazon book markets in the US and UK were trading at >$140 when we looked, so we headed down to the British Library in London to get hold of a copy. Published in 1981, this book is a look at silver’s recorded monetary history with a forward look at what the future might hold for the silver price.

Silver Chart Analysis Indicates Why Silver Price Is Likely To Pass $150 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Hubert_Moolman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a previous article, I wrote about the shift to measuring wealth in ounces instead of Dollars. In that same article, I expressed my opinion that I consider silver bullion to be one of the best current opportunities to increase one's gold ounces.

Do Gold and Silver Investors Believe QE Will Be Dialed Back? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After two days of consecutive gains, gold and silver briefly dipped into the red after Friday’s job report. The Labor Department’s monthly report said the United States economy added 227,000 jobs in February, compared to expectations of 213,000. Furthermore, hiring in January and December were better than previously thought. Those figures were revised to show 61,000 additional jobs. The economy has generated an average of 245,000 new jobs in each of the last three months.

Possibility of a Bounce Up in Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Tuesday gold prices continued to break down, falling for a fifth consecutive day breaking below the 200-day moving average. On February 6th we suggested getting out of the speculative long positions, and reiterated it yet once again just a day before the crash. But this week on Tuesday, our SP Gold Bottom Indicator flashed a long-term buy signal. The indicator is just one of the unique proprietary investment tools developed by Sunshine Profits, available only to our subscribers. We tend to take this particular signal seriously since it has proved to be uncannily accurate in the past (you can click the chart to enlarge it if you’re reading this essay on sunshineprofits.com).

Natural Gas Fracking Boom Turns Sour / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExxon Mobil's CEO Rex Tillerson, unveiling bad news on Exxon's intense program to develop shale and stranded gas resources, said March 8th that some shale formations in Europe and China are impervious to drilling techniques that opened vast reserves of US natural gas and identified potential shale oil reserves, from Texas and Pennsylvania to North Dakota. He concluded that new methods and techniques will need to be invented to tap many of the shale fields that energy companies and governments across the world, with a few exceptions hope eventually will yield a bonanza of gas and then oil.

Dude, Where’s my Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmid reports of Germany and Switzerland requesting their gold from the United States, Jan Skoyles asks why do they want it back considering their monetary policies?  The repatriation of gold is a growing topic of interest since Venezuela demonstrated how much value they place on their gold reserves. With escalating gold prices, growing gold investment demand and faltering Western economies is it any wonder German and Swiss politicians are asking where their gold is.

Clarity of vision can be lost in the everyday hustle and bustle of market gyrations, news events, political posturing and the whirlwind of activity that is our daily labor.

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEmerging from the shadow of Fukushima, the nuclear sector is on the cusp of a comeback, according to Mark Lackey, chief investment strategist with Toronto-based Pope & Company. Nuclear plants have been reopened, and as many as 200 new plants worldwide are scheduled to come online. At the same time, uranium supply shortages loom on the horizon, making for bullish fundamentals for uranium miners. Lackey's faith in the coal sectors also burns brightly. He reveals his favorites in both sectors in this exclusive Energy Report interview.

The Story Behind US Gas Price Pain / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research writes: Gasoline consumption in the United States has been dropping for years. In the last decade, vehicle fuel efficiency has improved by 20%, and the combination of that shift and a weak economy of late has pushed gasoline demand to its lowest level in a decade.

At the same time, US oil production is at its highest level in a decade. Deepwater wells in the Gulf of Mexico and horizontal fracs in the Bakken shale have turned America's domestic oil production scene around. After 20 years of declining production, US crude output rates started to climb in 2008 and have increased every year since.

Gold Remains in Consolidation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith Gold's failure at $1800, it should be obvious that the market is in a protracted consolidation. This is actually similar to 2006-2007 and it is something we wrote about in a missive in early January. At the time, Gold had bottomed and had the luxury of very strong support nearby. We believed Gold would be range bound, but because it was emerging from support, it would have an upward bias. With Gold's failure at $1800, now we can say range-bound with a downward bias.

Gold Spectacular Rally Pending a Trigger / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Hubert_Moolman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold just needs a trigger to launch it for the most spectacular rally since the late 70’s. I believe that trigger is likely to be the crash (or decline) of the stock markets.

This crash, if it occurs, is in anticipation of the inevitable bursting of the debt bubble. This is much like during the Great Depression when the stock markets crashed and bottomed before Total Debt as a % of GDP peaked in 1933. The Sovereign Debt-Crisis (especially in Europe) is the obvious sign that the debt bubble is bursting; with every additional unit of debt producing less or no increased GDP.
