Fed Crosses the Rubicon and Ignites Powerful Parabolic Gold Bull Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed crossed the Rubicon last week with its announcement of another massive tranche of QE (Quantitative Easing or in common parlance money printing), known as QE2. It is thus clear that what is now known as QE1, which was portrayed at the time as "one off rescue of the financial system" was nothing of the kind, but represented instead the bursting of a dam that can never be put back together again. The junkie has graduated to another level, from that of being merely a chronic debtor, unable to live within its means and sponging on the rest of the world, to selling its own future down the river in order to maintain its voracious consumption habits in the present.

Gold Price Break Out or Fake Out? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a now-infamous 2002 speech, Ben Bernanke said: (…) The U.S. government has a technology, called a printing press (or, today, its electronic equivalent), that allows it to produce as many U.S. dollars as it wishes at essentially no cost… Under a paper-money system, a determined government can always generate higher spending and hence positive inflation…

Swimming In Crude Oil? Record High Inventory Will Continue To Build / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the recent price surge in crude oil this week, basically going from $81.50 to $87 a barrel within this week--thanks to a Fed's QE2-induced weak dollar-- oil inventories actually added another 2 million barrels build to the current stockpiles.

These are the highest inventory levels for crude in 2010 and are just shy of the 370 million mark, which will be punctuated next week with another build in crude stockpiles. (See Stocks Chart from the U.S. EIA)

Federal Reserve Inflating Bubbles Pushing Agri-Foods to New Highs / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReadily acknowledged is that first action of new U.S. Congress should be to call for resignations of all members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.. Their irresponsible acts to date have clearly violated their mandate to provide a healthy economic environment. With Federal Reserve Bubble III, manifesting itself in the inflated and unnatural values for non dollar currencies, distorting the global economic system, they must be removed immediately and most recent policy action nullified.

Gold And Silver At Crucial Juncture, European Banks Under Pressure As Investors Celebrate QE2 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeb Handwerger writes: Ben Bernanke has officially announced quantitative easing and the markets are reacting with rising prices amongst all asset classes. "QE2" is practically an economic tool to artificially raise asset prices to prevent deflationary forces. When prices in asset prices decline due to a lack of demand you have deflation. Quantitative easing essentially is a preventive approach for central banks to prevent deflationary forces. This techniques is used when a Central Bank can no longer lower interest rates due to it being to close to zero, so they just print money devaluing the currency and raising asset prices across the board.

Is the Rise in the Gold Price Just a Fall in the Dollar? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

As we write, the gold price is about to assault the $1,400 level having been $1,332 on Wednesday of this week, a day ahead of the Fed announcement. Against the pound sterling, the yen the Swiss franc and most other currencies the dollar has weakened too. In the days ahead of that announcement the dollar had been wavering between $1.38 and $1.40 against the euro. After the announcement the U.S. dollar fell quickly down to $1.42 against the euro. But then the dollar recovered and is sitting at $1.41. Recently gold has again moved in the opposite direction to the dollar, until it ran up in the euro vigorously, so has this now changed again? Can there be more to the rise in gold than just the fall in the dollar? We believe so, because far more than QE 2 happened this week.

Gold and Commodity Investors Profiting As the Fed Creates More Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest news to depress me is that incomes were reported down 0.1%, and the latest news about spending is that spending is up 0.2%.

The reason that it was extraordinarily depressing for me is that I was trying, in vain, to explain to the drooling half-witted pinhead idiot seated next to me at the bar that I think that "spending" is actually waaAAAaaay down, because, while total spending is up, it is mostly because prices have risen so much that people buy fewer things overall, but pay more per item that they do still buy, which they do because of the rapid decline of their standards of living caused by the loss of buying power of the dollar as a result of the Federal Reserve creating so many more of them.

Gold’s Toxic Noose Is Untied: Next Crude Oil $150 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven a Gold Sceptic can go along with the idea that Ron Paul could buy a smart outfit with one ounce of gold in 1920 (including shoes), and that’s how much he would need in 2010.

Although by that marker he would have needed four ounces in 2007, given that the sort of tailors that Ron frequents have slashed their prices in half; and the price of gold has doubled. But that’s just splitting hairs…Big Picture, it’s not a bad storyline, and the message is that gold holds value, regardless of how insane governments get.
