Gold Down 1%, Follows Sharp Drops In Commodity and Stock Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Markets have seen another marked increase in risk aversion with a sea of red engulfing nearly all markets including the gold market. Equity markets have fallen sharply as have most commodities. The precious metals have not been immune to the meltdown with silver down 3% and palladium and platinum plummeting 9.5% and 6% respectively. Oil has plummeted by more than 8% as have most commodities with gold one of the better performers – only being down 1%.

The Logic of selling Gold in May and ‘going away.’ / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShould you invest – or should you trade?

Featured is the gold price in 2001. Selling in May and buying back right after Labor Day would have yielded a small profit, provided that the sale was made right at the top in May (not easy).

All Crude Oil Is Similar, But Crude Oil ETFs Are Not / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Ron_Rowland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou may have noticed that crude oil prices plunged over the last few weeks. On May 3, the June crude oil futures peaked at more than $87. Then on Monday, May 17 the same contract slipped below $70. That’s a decline of about 20 percent in only ten market days!

Of course we could go back in history and point to some periods when oil prices went up just as quickly. What this illustrates is that — like many commodities — crude oil can be very volatile.

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI know this is hard to do, especially when one is weathering draw downs.  And of course a liberal dose of gloating from the bears during these times doesn't help either.  But let's not get sidetracked by the little things and let's face it, the haters are going to show up every time gold corrects.  We really should be used to that by now.  They've been doing it for 10 years.

Gold Plunge to $1,175 a Buying Opportunity? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This is a brief analysis of the ongoing gold price correction as gold hits $1,175, targeting strong support area at $1,150.

The big picture remains as detailed at length in the 100 page inflation mega-trend ebook (FREE DOWNLOAD) that ALL Central banks have NO option but to print money - ALL. Despite rhetoric from the likes of the Bank of England, U.S. Fed and up until very recently the ECB that they had either halted or would not print money. However there IS NO alternative, especially in the face of the global debt crisis.

The New Truth About Natural Gas Could Shock the Market / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Keith_Schaefer

Investor sentiment is changing – to the positive – on natural gas.  Despite record or near record injection levels into storage in the US most weeks, gas prices have remained steady or even risen.  The number of drill rigs actively drilling for gas has barely budged, though it has been down in the US three of the last four weeks.

The GeoThermal Option for the Economic Recovery of Iceland / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Open_Foundation

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeographical Situation. Iceland has a geographical unique location on the collision/edge of two huge tectonic plates: the European and the North American. Due to this the nuclear fusion driven endless heath of the earth core ‘has a hot fold to the earth’s surface’ in Iceland. This creates possibilities to harvest geothermal on the low height parts of the fault. The tectonic fault is a line from north to south on Iceland. Iceland also is surrounded by the high seas, which can deliver abundant water need for the geothermal energy harvesting process.

Gold, Silver Market Manipulation, CFTC Aftershocks / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn March 25, fifteen individuals selected by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) testified to that body on proposed position limits for the precious metals markets. One big surprise was the inclusion of Bill Murphy, Chairman of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA). Although his organization has been blacklisted by the mainstream American media, he was able to enter some of GATA’s eleven years of research into the public record. Although only allowed to speak for a few minutes, Murphy’s testimony covered territory ranging from the “strong dollar” policy, the lack of transparency from the Federal Reserve on gold swaps, and the CFTC’s own stalled silver market investigation.

Resources Investors, Don't Get Hung Up on Negative Mainstream Press Headlines / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the first things mainstream journalists in Western media learn is how to tease angles out of stories that play on fear, scandal and disaster. Good news is no news. Bad news sells. If it bleeds, it leads. As historian, political writer and Guardian columnist Timothy Garton Ash observed, "Many Chinese City Dwellers Moderately Content with Rising Standard of Living" isn't a headline that would sell a lot of papers. Resource Opportunities Editor and Publisher Lawrence Roulston would agree. "The media has a huge bias toward the negative side of any story," he tells The Gold Report in this exclusive interview. Investors focusing on scary headlines, he argues, are missing out on phenomenal opportunities developing on the other side of the world—namely Asia and, particularly, China. His advice? "Take a broader, longer-term view of the world."

White House Covers Up Menacing Oil "Blob" / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

In an exclusive for Oilprice.com, the Wayne Madsen Report (WMR) has learned from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers sources that U.S. Navy submarines deployed to the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast have detected what amounts to a frozen oil blob from the oil geyser at the destroyed Deep Horizon off-shore oil rig south of Louisiana. The Navy submarines have trained video cameras on the moving blob, which remains frozen at depths of between 3,000 to 4,000 feet. Because the oil blob is heavier than water, it remains frozen at current depths.

Deflation and Economic Weakness Are the Best Catalysts for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Recently, I had written about how a deflationary impulse in the capital markets would be a catalyst for the gold stocks. This turned out to be accurate as stocks and commodities weakened while treasuries and the US Dollar advanced. Gold and gold stocks also moved higher. Nevermind the comments I received about how we are in an inflationary period and Gold will go down in a deflationary period.

Gold Parabolic Rise Resolution Crash Target / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA crucial component to many processes is the catalyst. It really has nothing to do with the process, but the presence of the catalyst acts an enabler. Greece may have been one of those catalysts. In terms of the world, Greece has no economic meaning. Greece is way out in the decimals. Economic problems of California are certainly larger. Yet, no one is buying Gold because of the end of the California dream. No one is talking about the dissolution of the U.S. because of the economic collapse of California, Illinois, and New Jersey.
