The Global Gold Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes anyone remember how so called Gold experts (like Jon Nadler over at Kitco.com) were recently saying that the move in Gold wasn't meaningful because it was only making new highs in U.S. Dollar terms? Are all those experts currently publishing articles to admit how they were pretty far off base? Since I already know the answer to this question, here's a 1 year price of Gold priced in Euros (from goldprice.org):

Silver's Turn to Shine / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot that there's a link between the two, but as the legendary Peter Grandich celebrates his silver anniversary as a market commentator, he tells The Gold Report in this exclusive interview that having been left behind in the big run-up in gold, silver's time has come to steal the limelight for a while. Peter, who started publishing The Grandich Letter 25 years ago and this month celebrates his first anniversary as Agoracom's market analyst too, also considers the current stock market rally as a gift delivered in the eye of the storm. Longer term, he expects America's underlying economic problems to result in prolonged sagging trading performance such as Japan has experienced over the past 20 years. Accordingly, he's alerting investors "to remove their bullish hats if they're still wearing them." As Peter's motto goes, "It's better to be a live chicken versus a dead duck."

Using Gold's Cyclical Model to Trade Junior Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is cyclical. Can knowing this help us make logical trading decisions about low priced gold stocks known as Juniors? Do these wild, speculative stocks even care  what the price of gold is doing. Even if they do, why would I want to gamble on such a high risk investment? Lets take a look.  

Since gold has bolted to new highs, I am getting more questions about the gold ETF, gold stocks, their options and juniors in particular. Here are a few of the questions and issues.

Devastating Oil Crisis Ahead? / Commodities / Crude Oil

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Hess, the Chairman of the US independent producer Hess Corporation, issued a warning last month to global governments claiming a “devastating oil crisis” looms large on the horizon if global action is not instituted. In a speech delivered at the Money & Oil conference, Hess said that once economic growth recovers, it is likely the world will return to the market conditions of one year ago:

Gold Attempting to Break Above $1200 As Barrack Ends Hedging / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD hit a new intra-day high in London trade early Tuesday, driven within $1.50 of $1200 per ounce as world stock markets leapt and the US Dollar sank after Dubai World – which requested a "debt freeze" last Thursday – said it's in talks to restructure almost half of its $59 billion owing.

The Dollar fell below $1.50 per Euro for the third time in six weeks. Crude oil rose above $78 a barrel.

Gold Rich Australia Hikes Interest Rates Again / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInterest rates are up again here in Australia as the RBA hikes our prime rate by 0.25% to 3.75%. One bank has already come out with a 0.45% hit on mortgage borrowers of nearly double that figure.  The Federal Treasurer stated that the banks have no justification to take this policy course however I beg to differ – truth is they have to rebuild their balance sheets to cover the bad and doubtful loans on their books – some of which are disguised as performing assets.

U.S. Oil Lobby is Blind to the Looming Spike in Crude Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKent Moors, Ph.D. writes: John Felmy has been the chief economist of the American Petroleum Institute (API) for years. He’s well respected. And I appreciate his experience. But the two of us disagree more often these days.

We most recently locked horns at Malone University in Canton, Ohio, last week, where we were debating the future of oil. (Actually, when the invitation was made, I was supposed to debate Sarah Palin. But she pulled out to go on the road and pitch a book she didn’t write.)

Agri-Food Companies Are a Good Contrast with Gold stocks / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the Thanksgiving holiday driving I-95 in Florida provided some insight into the state of at least some segments of the U.S. economy. I-95 is the major North-South highway on the East coast of Florida. It runs from Miami to Georgia. Driving it from mile marker 47 to about mile marker 300 provides a fairly complete sample of travel activity in the state. Travel activity in Florida is a reflection of economic activity within the nation.

If the U.S. Eonomy Weakens Again, What Happens to Gold and Base Metals? / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe announcement of a surprisingly large US trade deficit for September had some assuming the US consumer is back in a buying mood.  Alas, the much watched Michigan consumer confidence index for November quickly followed, and it is off a large 4.6 points, from 70.6 in October to 66.0 now.  The import gains were largely for crude oil, and there was some gain from the “declunkering” auto sector.  Even in weak markets there will periods of restocking that have to be figured into single bits of data.  Before Friday was done inventory levels for crude came out that were full enough to knock its price back from recent highs.

Gold Miners Making More Money? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMining is a tough business and profits are rarely easy to come by. I learned the concept of the "real" price of Gold from Bob Hoye at Institutional Advisors. This concept ignores the nominal price of Gold (i.e. ignores the currency effect, which is difficult for paperbugs but easy for long term Gold bulls) and focuses on the price of Gold relative to the price of other commodities as a ratio. Mr. Hoye has his own proprietary index, but as we all stand on the shoulders of giants before us, I use my own proxy of this ratio by dividing the Gold price by other commodities indices (I typically use the Continuous Commodities Index [$CCI]).

Iran’s Nuclear Ambitions Highlight Kazakhstan’s Uranium Potential / Commodities / Uranium

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne bonus of the global recession is that it wiped a lot of incompetent hedge fund managers and energy speculators from the canyons of Wall Street. As the Gordon Gecko sycophants regroup and look for the next Big Thing, maximizing profit while minimizing risk, the landscape looks very different than it did a year ago. In such a climate, it is uranium, not oil and natural gas that would seem to have the brightest future for one simple, overriding capitalist principle – supply and demand.

Silver Plods Along Whilst Gold Soars, Bearish Wedge Pattern? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile gold has soared in recent weeks silver has put in a plodding performance unable, thus far at least, to break above the zone of major resistance and the return line of the uptrend channel in force from late last year shown on our 2-year chart. Of course, if gold marshalls itself soon and resumes its advance then we can expect silver to overcome these restraining influences.
