The Marginal Utility of Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI welcome the Internet debate on the question whether the Mint should be opened to gold and silver. The latest contribution by Hugo Salinas Price, entitled Free Coinage of Gold and Silver - Then and Now (www.gold-eagle.com, 9 June 2011), expresses doubts that such a measure, at least insofar as silver is concerned, would work today. One of the arguments he offers is that silver, like all non-monetary metals (but unlike the monetary metal par excellence, gold) has a declining marginal utility. This, he suggests, is an historical change as prior to the 1870's the marginal utility of silver, like that of gold, was constant (or nearly so). In this brief rejoinder I cannot go through all the arguments of his long article, but would like to add my penny of wisdom, such as it is and for whatever it may be worth.

Gold Flash: European Central Bare Not Selling Gold. They are Buying It... / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHERE's a thing – Eurozone central banks have stopped selling and started buying gold so far in 2011.

Only by €6 million mind, and all of it in gold coin according to the European Central Bank's weekly statements. But this net gold buying still stands, even ignoring Estonia's 0.6 tonne purchase at New Year (its contribution, on joining the Euro, to the ECB's reserve assets).

Gold and Silver Waiting for August / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jason_Hamlin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePrecious metals investors are getting a little antsy as many newer investors and weak hands have been scared away after witnessing the first major correction since the financial crisis of 2008. While gold has only corrected 3% from its April high of $1,565, silver is down nearly 30% in the same time period. This article will focus on how I think things will play out over the next few months and into the close of 2011, with a focus on the price action in silver.

The Case Of The Mystery Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Lonerangersilver writes: I would like to share a story with the readers and hear your opinion. It was around 1985 in Northern Mexico before all the drug scandals. The new President of Mexico set to completely change the corruption in the customs authority especially in the US/Mexican border. To this end he entrusted a highly trustworthy and honest economics professor from a northern university (let’s call him Guzman) and put him totally in charge. Guzman then turned to some of his most trusted ex-students to fill the supervisory ranks and they in turn completely cleaned house hiring and training new agents.

Silver: The Fulcrum of Value / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePat Fields writes: A nonchalant comment I’d posted to a thread on Facebook (1) reflecting on a Zerohedge article (2) relating to bullion bank, Scotia Mocatta’s curious accounting for their silver holdings, sparked a small brush-fire of e-mails among a few folks. Particularly, it was my characterization of silver as having the analogical position of a fulcrum, providing a natural balance to the rational valuations of gold and copper and the further societal effect that this function imparts. Consequently, I received a note to request that I write this article, expanding further on these interconnections.

Great Silver Crash of 2011 May Not Be Over / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to the calendar, Summer doldrums should now be taking hold of the financial markets. Perhaps this year, though, those hot day blues might be replaced with greater than normal excitement. We know some interesting events might take place.

First, QE-2 is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month. With no discernable positive effect on the U.S. economy from that program and U.S. Senate wisely blocking the filling of two Board seats at the Federal Reserve, QE-3 seems unlikely.

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough it looks as if gold has been moving sideways for the past two weeks a closer look suggests a topping activity.  This coming week should tell us if that is so or not.  However, any short term reaction should not be a concern as the longer term picture still looks okay for new highs in the not too distant future.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRequesting anonymity in return for speaking, senior French financial officials have disclosed their interpretation of why and how Dominique Strauss-Kahn known as "DSK" in France, fell suddenly from world power as head of the IMF. Cited on French blog sites, these officials see nothing less than a threat to world monetary stability and the integrity of the global economy, behind the dramatic sleaze operation that felled the woman-chasing, globetrotting freespender with a B-movie sting in a Manhattan hotel room.

Why Gold and Silver Are Not in a Bubble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAny thoughts of a bubble in precious metals is not pertinent at this time. As long as mining stocks are not in favor then any thoughts of a bubble are not applicable in the current situation. Mining stocks should be soaring in tandem with their brothers in bullion. Such is not the case. Miners are trading far below general market valuation. In past history during a bubble, mining stocks soared to hundreds of dollars a share at the same time as bullion.

NYMEX Crooks (alleged) Crude Oil Futures Fake Out Scam / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: PhilStockWorld

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe CROOKS (allegedly, just indictments so far) at the NYMEX are running a scam and they have NO INTENTION WHATSOEVER of accepting delivery of even 1/10th of the 367M barrels they had as open contracts last week. In fact, Wednesday (June 8) they traded their contracts 454,043 times - isn't that amazing?  It's a 123% daily churn rate!  Of course, it's easy to churn 454M barrels of crude because the only sucker that ends up paying for all those fees is YOU, the end consumer of crude.  All those fees are passed on to you as part of the price of oil.
