Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTony D’Altorio writes: Here’s a riddle for you: How do you fit 37 gallons of water into a single cup?

Answer: Just fill it with coffee. After all, the original beans need water to grow too, just like they need water to convert into a usable form.

Long Term Interest Rate Rises Should Support Higher Gold Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarket focus has shifted to the US bond market and concerns about ultra accommodative US monetary and fiscal policy and continuing quantitative easing. This has seen heavy selling of long term US government debt and long term interest rates have thus risen. The yield on US 10 year Treasuries (benchmark cost of capital internationally) has risen from below 2.4% to over 3.2% in just two months and from 2.95% to 3.23% since just last Monday and the speed of the rise is what is concerning.

But that doesn't mean the senior analyst for Kitco Metals wants to see gold's sky-high price edge even higher. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Jon explains why gold is an insurance policy that investors should never want to cash in on.

Agri-Foods Investments Continue to Soar in Value on Growing Global Demand / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile preparing final copy of December issue of The Agri-Food Value View last week we thought that most of the relevant weather news had been covered. Then from down under came news of too much rain. Australia is not somewhere from which we expect to get such news. More often lack of rain is reported. That rain came as some Australian farmers were attempting to harvest the wheat crop. Yes, Australia is on a different weather cycle from Kansas City.

How to Play the Gold Silver Ratio / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Mike_Stall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold-silver ratio is perhaps one of the first indicators traders looked at to comprehend the state of the precious metals market and accordingly acquire positions. Indeed, it has been out of favor among modern investors who believe that this is one ratio even his barber is tuned in to and a simple sinusoidal movement does not often work. Anything that goes up comes down – while the cliché cannot be disregarded, if an uncomplicated philosophy like that really worked as simply, it would have earned several investors guaranteed profits over time. It is essential to understand that the game in the markets is all about being in the side who are doing things that the majority are not, given that the majority loses. In order to outsmart the majority, we need to look at the gold silver ratio in a way the majority is not.

Commodities Outlook Remains Positive / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith news of a compromise on extending the Bush tax cuts, recent strength in the U.S. dollar, and signals from China it may raise interest rates, it is a good time to check on the health of weak-dollar assets, such as commodities (DBC). Commodities, especially hard commodities like copper (JJC) and gold (GLD), are often used as a way to protect purchasing power during periods where concerns about future inflation are elevated.

Gold and Silver Tumble From Bull Market Highs on Rising Interest Rates / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD continued to fall in Asia and London on Wednesday, dropping 2.8% from Tuesday's new record high of $1430 per ounce as commodity markets also fell and global stock markets stalled.

Crude oil slipped further from yesterday's new two-year highs, but major-economy government bonds also extended their losses, driving 10-year US Treasury yields above 3.20% even as the US Dollar rallied sharply on the forex market.

Gold Breakout in Real Terms Means Good Times are Ahead for Gold Bulls / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

In past commentaries, I've written about my favorite form of technical analysis. That is intermarket analysis. Intermarket analysis takes traditional technical analysis much further. Normally, we'd look at a market by itself. We'd look at its price action, potential patterns and its momentum. Intermarket analysis takes this a step further by comparing the market at hand to various other markets. It gives us an idea of what is really going on and where market leadership is.

Crude Oil Price Ten Year Forecast to 2020 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Prediction is extremely difficult, especially about the future”: Niels Bohr

Once upon a time everything was predictable. Rating agencies could “almost” guarantee negligible default rates on bonds bearing pretty AAA investment grade stickers. And as the free-world slumbered, Noble Prize-winning economists fiddled with (fiendishly) clever theories like Inflation Targeting and the Black–Scholes-Model, which (theoretically) were going to create immense wealth out of thin air.

The 12 Gold Bugs of Christmas / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWarren Buffett recently remarked that you can't value gold like an oil company or farmland, so we should forget gold and buy equities. But he misses the point! Gold doesn't produce value because it is value; in other words, gold is money.

It's sad to see Mr. Buffett go to the dark side. But, as I'm about to show, he's losing company when it comes to his views on gold.

Greg Weldon: Gold Price Still Has Significant Upside / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Campbell: What are the implications of solving a huge debt problem by taking on more debt?

Greg Weldon: Its more than Ireland or Greece when you think that 25 out of 27 EU nations are in violation of rules on either debts or deficit relative to their GDP. We’ve been saying for a long time that for Europe to to bail out Europe is ridiculous. To think that the US is going to commit a trillion dollars to any foreign bail outs is even more ludicrous. Really the spark in the stock markets around the world was that comment from an unnamed US official that the United States promised to buoy up the International Monetary Fund, with another trillion dollars.

Market focus remains on the Eurozone debt crisis but has shifted somewhat to concerns about ultra loose US monetary policy and the likelihood that this will lead to a devaluation of the dollar, inflation and currency debasement.

Silver's 30-Year High is Just the Beginning / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Money_Morning

Jason Simpkins writes: The price of silver today (Monday) surged above $30 an ounce for the first time since 1980, after U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke indicated that further quantitative easing (QE) could be on the way.

Silver futures have gained almost 70% since August, when expectations of more QE were first discussed. Since then, the Federal Reserve has set about purchasing $600 billion of U.S. Treasuries and the Fed Chairman said on Sunday that more debt purchases are "certainly possible."
