2009: Dollar, Debts and Deficits to Eventually Drive Commodities Higher / Commodities / Investing 2009

By: HRA_Advisory

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHappier New Year - 2008 will (hopefully) go down as the most difficult year investors ever have to face. While we certainly are not promising a rapid return to a true bull market we think there will be profit opportunities going forward, some of them substantial.

Great risks remain however and even in the rosiest scenarios this will be a traders market for months if not years to come. Any gains in the market will be hard won and made against the backdrop of economic stats that will continue to be awful. It will be important to harvest profits when you're able and building cash for use later to patiently buy longer term bargains. We will cover a number of sub sectors in this first issue of 2009 with some comments at the end on the mining sector as a whole.

The Six Biggest Myths About Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Nick_Barisheff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold. People either love it or hate it. There aren't many who feel ambivalent toward it. Unfortunately, gold is deeply misunuderstood by investors, and that misunderstanding is hurting their portfolio returns. Many in the inuvestment community trot out the old myths about gold: that it is a bad investment; that it is very risky; that it is not a good inflation hedge. But is there anything behind these assertions? If investors take the time to examine the facts, these commonly held beliefs simply do not stand up to scrutiny. It is precisely because these myths have become so prevalent that gold is still undervalued. Once the general public realizes these beliefs are not valid, the price of gold will be much higher.

Money Supply Growth Will Drive U.S. Dollar Lower and Gold Higher / Commodities / Money Supply

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 1930s was the birth of Keynesianism. Economists needed a simple answer as to why they had been so wrong. Since then, the U.S., and much of the rest of the world, has endured 70 years of economic concepts that have generated a continuous lack of success in economic matters. Most professions would seriously review their methodology when faced with as many repeated failures. Not so for the economics community. They just keep coming with more of the same failed policies.

Silver Heading for Out-performance Against Gold During 2009 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver did as predicted in the last update, dropping back towards $10 from the then price at $11.50. It got down to about $10.20 and then bounced. Now it is clearly rounding over beneath a small Dome distribution pattern, marking out what looks like a small Head-and-Shoulders top. Thus, we can expect a retest of the support in the $10.20 area soon, and should this fail then silver is likely to drop back to the next significant support level near last year's lows in the $8.50 - $9.00 area.

Gold, U.S. Dollar and Treasuries Head and Shoulder Price Patterns / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 3 main predictions made over the past several weeks have come to pass - bonds have topped out and come close to completing a Head-and-Shoulders reversal, the dollar index has rallied further to our target in the 84 - 85 area and gold and silver have reacted, with silver reacting mildly compared to gold, also as predicted. The question now of course, particularly after the strong gains on Friday, is whether the reaction in the Precious Metals sector has run its course. Before attempting to answer this question it is worth stepping back to make some general observations about gold and the grave financial crisis gripping the world.

Gold Soars on Concerns Over Asset Backed Derivatives and ETF's / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is a historic day for the world with the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States of America. Gold has rallied by more than 2% despite continuing dollar strength and oil having collapsed 7% to just over $34 per barrel (Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - FEB09 : -7.6%) . While the dollar is up on hopes that President Obama can turn around the ailing US and indeed the global economy, stock markets internationally are under pressure again today with increasing concerns regarding the international banking and financial system.

Gold, Zombie Banking System, Lightning, Earthquakes and Hurricanes / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe earth itself provides many valuable analogies for massive dislocation in the relief of grand energy differentials. In the air, vast differentials between cloud structures in their electrical charge result in sudden lightning bursts as the release. In the air also, vast differentials between high cool masses and low rising warm masses result in powerful ongoing storms in hurricanes. In the ground, more accurately the earth plates, vast pressure builds from the movement of such plates, often with one plate flowing underneath another, leading to massive earthquakes and tremors.

Crude Black Gold vs Yellow Gold, Who’s Ready to Rally? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile gold was extremely popular the past few years, I think its safe to say crude oil is unbeatable for popularity, as it's a resource which almost everyone uses on a daily basis and it effects all of us in the wallet when oil prices rise as fuel, shipping costs and petroleum products start to cost more and more. This is the first time I have REALLY noticed everyone is following the price of oil. When kids start talking about it, then you know its being watched like a hawk from all types of individuals and traders.

Gas Prices Rollercoaster: Why Energy and Infrastructure Are Inextricably Linked / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Investment_U

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePresident-elect Obama takes office in less than a week's time. While many will be watching closely to see how he handles the ongoing financial crisis, I'll be equally interested to see how he handles a far more ominous one: our ongoing energy and infrastructure crisis. Regular readers know I believe energy and infrastructure are inextricably combined. We need cheap energy to fuel sustained economic growth. And we need infrastructure in place to move and dispense the energy from its source to its destination. Today I'm going to give you a perfect example of how the two are intertwined, and how one can play off the other to create a positive benefit for all.

Gold Is A Beach Ball Being Held Under Water / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps the best analogy to explain the fundamental condition of gold is that it's like a beach ball being held under water, where at some point it will escape the clutches of its oppressor, springing it into the light of day for all to see its true worth. Even a child could understand such a condition when explained in terms of a beach ball. When it comes to the day-to-day trials and tribulations of gold however, it's not that simple unfortunately, because although gold is the oldest form of true money on the planet, it's also a political metal caught up in the biggest fiat currency / Ponzi scheme in the history of mankind.
