Design Considerations for a Shock-Hardened Deepwater Drilling Rig and Plausibility Argument for the Loss of the Deepwater Horizon Drilling Rig / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dr_Stephen_Rinehart

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWWII resulted in many ships (naval surface combatants, subs and commercial tankers) were totally disabled by non-contact underwater explosions and/or air blast loadings (near miss). Also systems on one end of the ship were being knocked-out by a bomb hitting another part of the ship due to the severe shock loadings (think earthquake “g” loads multiplied by an actor of 10X, 50X or 100X).  As a result research in underwater explosions was intensified and in Dec 1946, the Underwater Explosions Research Division (UERD) was established by Dr Alfred Keil (the Division’s First Director). Dr Keil came from Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institute and wrote the classical paper on Underwater Gas Bubble Dynamics (gas bubbles that form underwater from an explosion and can attach themselves to a ship’s hull and cause huge damage or sink the ship. This is why we are using so much dispersant to dilute the huge methane gas bubbles to protect the surface ships such as Discovery Enterprise.

Will Gold Shares Catch Up to the Gold Price? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold share prices have not moved up in line with the gold price, why?

This has shaken quite a few investors, who based on past market moves, expect share prices to move roughly in line with the gold price in the belief that holding gold mining shares will produce the same if not more gains. It's time to look at the 'why' of this.

Gold Almost Free at Last / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. dollar may only look good because its fiat currency brethren look bad, but declining confidence in paper money has thrust gold toward a position it hasn't enjoyed for a century or so— freedom from its seesaw relationship with the U.S. dollar. In this exclusiveGold Report interview, Gold Newsletter Editor and Publisher Brien Lundin—who also hosts the New Orleans Investment Conference—says that mounting troubles in Euroland threaten to end the traditional inverse correlation between the price of gold and the value of the U.S. dollar. Of course the dollar decoupling can only go so far. "Gold stands as the one currency that governments cannot debase or debauch," Brien says, but "the dollar is the only currency accepted by margin clerks."

Time to Focus on Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is not exactly groundbreaking analysis to say that whats good for Gold is generally good for Silver. As observers of the precious metals know, Silver tends to lag Gold but eventually catch up quickly. In the long-term sense, Silver is still a year or two behind Gold as Gold has broken above all resistance levels. Technically speaking, we do favor Gold over the next few months, but ultimately, Silver is poised to catch up with vengeance.

Gold Bull Market's Last Breath? Really? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in early 2000, during the euphoria of what later became known as the Dot.Com Bubble, one well-known professional investor stuck his neck out and predicted the bursting of that bubble. Jeremy Grantham was a bit early and was willing to give up millions in fees from customers who fled his fund transferring their money to managers who promised the party would never end.  In 2000 Grantham predicted stocks would lose 3.9% per year annualized for the next 10 years and he was proven right.

Gold and Silver, Precious Metals Summer Seasonal Doldrums / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past month or so, precious-metals stocks’ performance has been frustrating.  Even though gold looks great, lazily meandering over $1200 without a care in the world, the PM stocks have drifted sideways to lower.  Unfortunately such behavior is typical in the dreaded PM summer doldrums.

These doldrums exist because strong seasonal forces affect gold demand.  While gold’s newly-mined supply flows to the markets at an essentially constant rate throughout the year, this metal experiences wild fluctuations in demand.  And unfortunately none of the usual demand spurts coincide with summer.

Crude Oil Realities / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWithout a doubt, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is an environmental disaster.  Unfortunately, as far as the global economy is concerned, Mr. Obama’s six-month moratorium on new offshore drilling is an even bigger disaster. 

Remember, the supply of crude oil is already struggling and in order to offset the ongoing depletion, the world desperately needs to find new oil-fields.  Thus, by stopping new exploratory drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, the US establishment is wasting precious time.

Geological Anomalies are Like Opinions: Everybody Has One / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Louis James, Senior Editor, Casey’s International Speculator : There's a great deal of chatter in the press and online about the tremendous US$1-trillion-dollar mineral "discovery" in Afghanistan headlined by The New York Times recently. Most of the discussion seems to center on whether or not this is really news and whether or not the NYT was played by the powers that be for purposes of their own. Few, if any, people seem to be questioning the value of the so-called discovery itself. The US$1-trillion-dollar figure, at best, cannot be anything more than the wildest of hopeful guesses.

Why Uranium Will Make Someone Rich / Commodities / Uranium

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUranium is a very unusual sector. For one, it's small. So small, that at one point in history top-producing nations like Canada and France tried to form a uranium cartel to control prices for the metal.

The "uranium OPEC" failed. But production today is de facto controlled by a handful of companies.

Gold Flat as Coffee Surges 20% in 6 Days and Oats Surge 40% in Week / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver fell marginally yesterday in lacklustre trade on thin volumes. Gold appears to be consolidating above $1,200/oz and support can be seen at $1,177/oz and $1,145/oz (see chart below). As ever in the short term anything could happen but given the continuing degree of sovereign risk, gold is more likely to move higher than lower in the medium term and $1,300/oz remains possible over the summer despite the traditionally negative season. Gold is currently trading at $1,234/oz and in euro, GBP, CHF, and JPY terms, at €998/oz, £834/oz, CHF 1,374/oz, JPY 112,664/oz respectively.
