Silver Seasonal Big Autumn Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver has been drifting in a rather lackluster summer.  Ever since surging to $19.50 in mid-May, this often-popular white metal has been grinding sideways to lower.  By late July it had fallen over 10% to about $17.50.  But despite silver’s recent excitement-bereft sojourn, it actually has excellent potential for a big autumn rally in the coming months.

By: Bob_Kirtley

As you know on the 29th May 2010 we purchased some Silver Wheaton (SLW) Call Options which are the September 2010 series, with a strike price of $21.00 and we paid $1.30 per contract for them.

BHP and Potash, Inflation, Stealing Calories From the Future / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Dan_Denning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHmm. Let's see. Last time BHP Billiton made a tilt at a high-profile, big money acquisition, the whole world went pear-shaped. As the statisticians say, correlation is not causation. But M&A activity seems to pick up when company directors have run out of other ways to increase earnings. It does not always work out well for shareholders. Case in point, BHP's shares are down today by 3.5%.

Tin, an Overlooked Commodity / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Alex_Cowie

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI want to introduce you to one of the most overlooked metals in the commodity complex. On a price basis, it’s been a star performer. Yet it hasn’t attracted much attention.

That’s just the way I like it, though. It gives you a chance to examine the dynamics of the market without rushing. In this case, the dynamics are very strong. The supply side is constrained; a situation that almost always puts upward pressure on prices. The demand side is strong too, as the recent price action shows.

Gold Has Marginal Falls on Low Volume Trading and Profit Taking / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Gold fell to $1,220/oz per ounce in early European trade before bouncing. It is now trading at $1,223/oz and has thus given up some of yesterday's small gains as summer trading volumes remain low and traders book profits after the recent rise in gold prices. Investors remain risk averse as seen in weakness in equity markets and the safe haven bid for German bunds, Japanese yen and US Treasurys (despite the dollar coming under selling pressure).

Gold and Other Investor Protections Against a Double Dip Recession / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: The last time the U.S. economy suffered through a double-dip recession, this country was struggling to overcome the fallout from an Arab oil embargo, Vietnam War-era deficits, and an inflationary spiral that just wouldn't let go.

That 1981-82 double-dip downturn - the result of an economic "shock treatment" aimed at curing those ills - consisted of two recessions that were separated by a single quarter of growth.

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe kick off with a light hearted review of silver taking a quick look at the chart for silver prices where we can see that they have been consolidating nicely over the last three months or so. The technical indicators are more or less in the middle of their respective ranges and as so have room to move higher.
