Gold Stocks - The Next Big Winners / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold Stocks - A contrarian view on where the next Gold Stock winners will emerge.
Searching for the Golden Goose?

For years we have been speaking and writing about the massive bind the Fed now finds itself in.

Then, when you get back on Monday, I want you to make darn sure you have plenty of gold in your portfolio. Why? Because your wealth is at stake. The Federal Reserve has lit the inflation fuse, and is bound and determined to devalue the U.S. dollar even more than they already have.

Crude Oil Seeking Black Swan for Spike above $150 in Overbought State / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent week has seen crude oil soar through $140 onwards and upwards to a new record high of $146. Much of this gain has been attributed to the growing tension in the middle east with regards a possible Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear infrastructure and the drop in US oil stockpiles.The rise has been accompanied by investors dumping stocks as highly inflationary oil prices continue to contribute towards the destruction of economic activity that pushed the major US indices into technical bear markets (20% down from Oct 07 highs)..

Impact of Grains Bull Market on Meat Prices / Commodities / Livestock

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Americans enter the July 4th weekend they have a lot to look forward to. First and foremost is the celebration of this nation's independence marked by a federal holiday. Then of course are the customary traditions of parades, fireworks, baseball games, and carnivals among the many. But one timeless tradition that nicely ties into the topic of this essay is the almighty barbeque.

Barbequing is near and dear to the hearts of hundreds of millions of Americans. And millions of grillmeisters don their aprons and arm themselves with extra-long stainless-steel-forged tongs and spatulas as they prepare to strut into their backyards for their moments of glory. These champions of grilling take pride in the delectable cuisines they skillfully prepare for friends and family.

By: Adrian_Ash

Oil Crisis Worsening! Crude Oil Breaks Above $145, What's Next… / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes:I've been pounding the table about an energy crisis for quite some time. As a loyal reader of my Money and Markets column, you might think I've been proven right by gasoline soaring over $4 a gallon in 32 states and oil hitting new record highs.

But most of what I've been talking about is simply the long-term supply/demand squeeze that will transform our oil-addicted civilization in the future.

Gold Short-term Delta Cycle Turning Points for July / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ronald_Rosen

Our governments through their ignorance, stupidity, or just plain corruption for political purposes have delayed the full expression of the gold cycle until very near the end of the cycle. This means to the highest probability the price of gold will soon begin to explode to the upside. The only thing the delaying actions by governments and various banking authorities have produced is a monumental explosion in the gold price in order to meet the deadline of assigned time i.e., “ There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

Gold Surges on High Geopolitical Risk of Israel Militarily Strike on Iran / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold surged to $942.80 in New York yesterday and was up $16.30 and silver closed at $18.20, up 78 cents.

Gold has succumbed to profit taking with the dollar flat and oil prices down marginally ( $141.30 per barrel <Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - AUG08> ). However, geopolitical risk remains ever present and this should result in gold remaining well bid at these levels.

By: John_Needham

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePassion and Precision
Most Gold traders are also Gold buffs. As the oldest form of money known to man and the first step past a basic bartering system in our civilization's development, Gold and Silver occupy a special place in our psyche, thus it is not surprising that many traders are passionate about the commodity they trade. Passion in all its forms is more pleasurable in anticipation than reality, a concept that gains acceptance with age, but there are times when anticipation will not suffice and precision is demanded. So it is with the world of trading.
