Gold Adds 1% But Silver Unwinds Week-on-Week Jump as Oil Price Hit by Margin Hike / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

BOTH GOLD and physical silver prices failed to hold onto a sharp overnight bounce in London trade on Friday, trading below $1404 and $33 respectively per ounce as volatility in crude oil remained at record levels but world stock markets rose for the first day in six.

The US Dollar snapped its 7-day losing streak, bouncing against the Euro, Sterling and Yen and leaving gold prices for non-Dollar investors slightly higher again.

Crude Oil, Natural Gas and AMEX Oil Index Stocks Analysis / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: David_Petch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe daily chart of oil is shown below, with oil shooting well above all three Bollinger bands, suggestive that oil will consolidate for at least 7-10 days before trending higher. Normally, when prices run well above upper Bollinger bands, a consolidation is required, or a pullback is in order. Given the fact that all three lower Bollinger bands are positioned in close proximity to each other and the lower 55 MA Bollinger band curled lower, oil prices are highly likely to remain above $90/barrel and eventually rise above $100/barrel before summer's end. Full stochastics 1, 2 and 3 are shown below in order of descent, with the %K beneath the %D in all three instances.

Global Food Crisis, Not Only Speculation / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE BIG PICTURE - Recent massive food commodity price rises, with occasional day trade plunges on the back of market rumours, price chart gazing or analysts' theories – followed by a return to the growth trend - is taken by many as a key proof of the Ponzi scheme new economy. The food commodity sell-off through February 21-23, 2011 is a typical example, explained by market watchers as due to speculation by traders that riots in North Africa and the Middle East could cut government spending and curb food demand from the Arab world, which buys about 33 percent of global shipments.

Timber Investing: The Inflation Hedge That Pays Off in Every Type of Market / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: If you start a conversation about the building inflationary pressures already sapping consumer pocketbooks, that talk will almost certainly turn to such classic hedges as gold, silver and even crude oil.

But one of the best inflationary hedges of the 20th century is often forgotten - even though it's likely to be just as effective this time around.

Food Price Inflation Calculator / Commodities / Inflation

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark Thornton of the Mises Institute writes, "The price of everything seems to have skyrocketed. Only housing, the dollar and inflation-adjusted income are negative."

I immediately interrupt to wittily say, "Well, housing is going down because nobody wants to buy a still-over-priced-yet-even-lower-quality house that now needs painting, a new water heater, some leaky things fixed and a new roof, especially now that inflation-adjusted incomes are negative!"

What You Need to Know About Buying Silver Today / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeff_Clark

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's hard to believe that less than three years ago, silver was $8.80 an ounce. Since then it has nearly quadrupled in value (up 385%) and more than doubled in the last 12 months alone.

That's great for those who already own the metal - but is it too late for the rest of us to get in?

WTI and Brent Disparity Means Higher Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWest Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil is trading at a significant discount to Brent crude, the latter of which is used to price two-thirds of globally traded crude oil. WTI, on the other hand, is the commodity underlying Nymex futures contracts and has, more often than not, traded slightly above Brent. Although the current Brent/WTI divergence is widening, disruptions in equilibrium don't tend to last. "True energy demand," says Raymond James Director of Energy Research Marshall Adkins, "will ultimately bring WTI in line with global oil prices." Marshall reveals how equity investors can profit from oil service providers in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report.

Clean Energy Commodities: The Answer To Middle Eastern Oil / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany of the great declines in the stock market over the past 30 years have been related to oil (United States Oil (USO)). This week we have seen the major indices plummet on geopolitical chaos throughout North Africa, especially the large oil-producing Libya, as investors returned to gold (SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)), silver (iShares Silver Trust (SLV)), and oil. As the market reached record overbought territory, any excuse could begin a significant pullback in equities (SPDR S&P 500 (SPY)).

Gold Up, Silver Down as Soaring Oil & Bond-Market Rates Snub Geithner's "No Stagflation" Claim / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD rose further in London trade Thursday morning, hitting new 2011 highs for Dollar investors as Brent crude oil jumped to $119 per barrel and a raft of economic analysis warned of "stagflation" ahead for the global economy.

Silver prices ticked lower together with platinum and palladium – which also find the bulk of their demand from industry, rather than investment or jewelry – as well as base metals.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe inflation forecast for 2011 warned that the key risks to the forecast were all to the upside and specifically if Crude oil were to go super nova during 2011, subsequent events starting in Tunisia, magnifying in Egypt and now exploding in Libya have sent crude oil prices soaring into the stratosphere as speculators pile into a panic sparked trend, where Brent Crude has now spiked higher to $115 on the spot market, up $40 from the recent trading range of $75 and leaving the US WTI Crude presently lagging behind at $101.

Gold and Silver Prices, Getting to Know Crisis Premiums / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

There’s a term gold and silver investors like to use to describe changes in premiums based solely on changes in the markets and demand for physical metals: the crisis premium.

The crisis premium was most recently encountered at the turn of the new millennium when hundreds of thousands of people stashed record collections of gold and silver to protect against what was supposed to be the worst electronic catastrophe ever.  Bank balances were supposed to go to zero, and computers were to become virtually worthless when the date rolled over to 01/01/00.  Of course, that never happened, no one died, and the sun still rose the next morning.

QE2, The Road To A Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat an incredible few weeks with global uprisings! It is not all too surprising that social eruptions over food prices come from the Arab world, since they spend up to 75% to 80% of income on food for basic needs. What proof that the global economy is not a closed system! The QE and QE2 initiatives have spread like a powerful virus, leading to global commodity prices heading upward and quickly. Even cotton is up 170% in price. The USFed has suffered even more credibility blows, calling the global food price inflation unrelated to its QE2 policy. It is obviously connected. What we have is the Western Big Banks protected from fraud prosecution, redeemed for their broken toxic balance sheets at government expense, leading to a global price tag in the form of foodstuffs and commodities.
