Employment And Oil.... Stocks Whipsaw Week...Bull Trend Still In Place..... / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Jack_Steiman

Such an interesting week. If you remember last Friday's report, I talked about whipsaw coming up in a symmetrical triangle. I don't think anyone would argue that that's exactly what we saw this week. The triangle is alive and kicking. They are so emotional, especially when over played on either side. Longs struggle. Shorts struggle. Lots of back and forth that plays on your mind. Usually causes bad outcomes. You get aggressive in a symmetrical triangle you pay the price, even though you probably didn't put on a bad trade. It just feels that way at certain times within it. Again, nothing aggressive. If you play only a few plays you can more easily deal with what's taking place.

Junior Gold Miners Premium from Social Unrest Spreading Out of Africa and into Americas / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSprott Asset Management Senior Portfolio Manager Charles Oliver says the social unrest in the Middle East could lead to a premium for junior companies operating in North and South America. He's even betting on it, saying, "I believe juniors will give you the best long-term outperformance and alpha." He's taken profits on companies with exposure to Africa and moved that cash into others with primary assets in the Americas, where, he says, there is much lower risk. Charles discusses a basket full of those names in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the general stock markets now due for a selloff while gold hits new nominal all-time highs, precious-metals-stock traders face something of a quandary.  How are their stocks likely to perform in the near future?  Will they ignore general-stock weakness to rally with gold?  Will they get sucked into a stock-market selloff even if gold remains strong?

Who’s Really Affected By Rising Food Prices / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is certainly old news around here that terrifying inflation in prices, thanks to the monstrous inflation in the money supply caused by the Federal Reserve creating So Freaking Much Money (SFMM) for the last few decades, has caused me to venture to that dangerous precipice between being merely weird and obnoxious, to being a raving lunatic screaming from the rooftop “We’re freaking doomed!”

Gold Has No Intrinsic Value and Not a Store of Value / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is a valuable thing to store. However, it is not a store of value. Gold has intrinsic properties that make it valuable. However, it does not have intrinsic value.

I mention this, because, at some point, you will read about gold as a store of value. You will read of gold's intrinsic value. Every time you read either of these phrases, you will know that the author does not understand economic theory.

Leverage Surging Crude Oil Demand / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rising tide of commodity prices has had a multiplier effect on the smaller unrecognized and undervalued oil explorers and producer. Private investor Chen Lin is leveraging ever-increasing demand for oil via micro- and small-cap stocks. He looks for companies with strong balance sheets that can generate the cash flow to become self-funding in a relatively short period of time. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Chen explains how he determines which companies have the potential to double, triple or even quadruple and shares some promising stocks he owns.

Natural Resource Depletion Crisis, The Real Reason Commodities Beat Stocks / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFebruary: Metals, food and fuel beat stocks, bonds and the US dollar for a third straight month, the longest winning streak since June 2008. Price rises fundamentally driven by short supplies lifted all soft commodities from the grains and vegetable oils to sugar, cotton and rubber, for a 2.2 percent gain over 28 days, lifting the UN FAO 55-item food index to a record high. Geopolitical threat to oil supply,  intensified by investors speculating that violence in the Arab and Muslim world will curb oil supplies lifted oil prices, while the only fossil energy resource bright spot – shale gas – kept a tight lid on gas prices in US markets, but not on oil-linked or indexed import dependent European and Asian markets.

Gold and Silver Breaking New Highs As U.S. Dollar Loses Appeal As Safe Haven / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold (GLD) and silver (SLV) meteor keeps soaring in the skies over Wall Street as the US dollar (UUP) is parachuting into new lows. The spot price of silver this week broke $34.40, zooming into a record high area unseen since 1980. On March 1, gold followed its poorer brother by breaking out at $1425. The US dollar is challenging all-time lows. It does not take a PhD from Princeton to realize that there may be a problem here. Maybe the recent radical central bank actions should be reconsidered? True, 401(k)'s look good, but it has come at the expense of significant dollar debasement.

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Silver, Rethinking “Buy on the Dips” / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Perhaps no more do we hear this common phrase “buy on the dips” than in raging bull markets.  Investors who have long sought to price themselves into strong markets have used this phrase to justify their patience.  However, truthfully, “buying on the dips” isn’t at all rational.
