By: David_Vaughn

Gold continues to pass every stress and strength test that is thrown before it.

By: Money_and_Markets

How High Can Gold Go Before Peaking - Gold Dow Jones Ratio Important Indicator / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Dr_Krassimir_Petrov

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article How about $10,000? or $1,000? Or even $100,000? - Calls for the price of gold vary, anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 or even to $100,000. There is one true fundamental problem with all calls for the price of gold – they all ignore the future inflation environment. 

For example, if a genuine Great-Depression-like deflation grips the U.S. economy, then $1,500 for the top of the gold bull market might be too high. On the other hand, if a long 1970 stagflation is in the cards, then $5,000 is too low. The point is that a call for the price of gold without a clear assumption for the macroeconomic environment is a wild and misleading shot in the dark.

IMF Selling 400 Tonnes of Mexican and Brazilian Gold as its Own! / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been a lot of talk of late of potential sales of I.M.F. gold. The more we look at the subject, contrary to our previous view, the more likey it seems possible [not yet probable], but if it does happen, it will not happen again thereafter for solid reasons. If the sales do take place they will happen from September 2008 onwards.

It will still have to get past the U.S. Congress a most formidable and possibly insurmountable obstacle.

Bull Markets in Precious and Industrial Metals / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThose looking for $1k gold continue to be thwarted as the monetary metals have to prove themselves in the short term by taking out key upside levels and invalidating corrective counts.

Gold Warning Potential Topping Pattern / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs gold taking a rest and moving sideways or is it preparing for a significant move lower, or higher. Where's that coin? Time for the flipping. It will probably be as accurate as anyone.

GOLD : LONG TERM - Long term technical indicators and trend changes very slowly so over the past week there was little or no change to the charts or indicators. The long term P&F chart basically has not moved. It is, however, showing a topping pattern as the Xs have hit the $930 level two times now without a penetration.

Oil Stocks vs. Crude Oil and S&P Stock Market Index / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude oil's fundamentals are extraordinarily bullish. Global demand for oil is growing relentlessly, and most consumers have little choice but to pay virtually any price for this critical fuel. Meanwhile global production growth is slowing as old oilfields deplete and major new finds become exceedingly rare. This structural deficit has driven oil prices to record highs, leading to fortunes earned by the companies that produce this scarce and valuable commodity. Investors and speculators have naturally migrated into oil stocks to ride this secular trend. But lately owning the oil stocks has been an exercise in frustration.

By: Merv_Burak

Beat the Market Investing - Best Buys in Oil Refiners / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo beat the market investors need to find opportunities where they have a good chance to achieve above average returns. In recent years, refiners have benefited from the expanding crack spread that exists during the spring and summer months. As a result, they have experienced a seasonal rise in the price of their stock as demand for gasoline increases during the spring and summer months. Moreover, many of the current refineries are aging and tend to encounter unplanned outages, especially during the spring and summer months causing supply shortages. This pattern provides investors with a good opportunity to make some money, with low risk. The purpose of this article is to give you some of my thinking on the key economic drivers for refiners and then identify which refiners are best positioned to take advantage of this year's cycle.
