Final Quarter Energy Trends for Uranium and Green Energy / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe final quarter of the year is always a crucial period for the energy markets. The quarter marks both the beginning of the winter heating season and a time when refiners look to rebuild their crude oil inventories. Often, trends that emerge during the quarter carry through into the new year.

With crude oil prices hovering above $80 per barrel and natural gas recovering from its midsummer lows, the fourth quarter of 2007 promises to be even more pivotal for the energy patch than normal. In this week's issue, let's take a look at two trends I'll be watching carefully as we head into the final weeks of 2007.

Gold Rockets on US Dollar Troubles / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Christopher_Laird

Gold rose Friday well over $740 setting a new high (not inflation adjusted) since 1980. The USD dropped below a key 78 level on the USDX (currency index heavy Euro weighted). Oil is also rising based on USD weakness. This is not just a speculator driven rally in either gold or oil, as has been the case before the USD started to drop and stay below 80 on the USDX – a big change from the last several years.

Will Mugabe Seize Control of 51% of Zimbabwe's Platinum Mines? / Commodities / Platinum

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Mr. Mugabe has a long history of destroying the country's assets. It started with him forcing Zimbabwe banks [such as Grindley's] holding foreign investments on behalf of Zimbabweans [in nominee names], to hand them over to the government in exchange for 4% government bonds [that was in 1983]. That resulted in the termination of direct private foreign investments to Zimbabwe. Next came the white owned farmland, which confiscations led to Zimbabwe changing from the breadbasket of Africa to a country unable to grow its own food and starvation staring many of them in the face.

Gold Mining Challenges - Gold Stocks Gains Over Leveraged Against Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

With gold once again above $700/oz, there is a renewed interest in gold stocks. Throughout the course of this gold bull it is indeed the gold stocks that have provided investors with excellent leverage to the rising price of gold. These companies that are responsible for bringing the metal to market should be well positioned to greatly profit in a secular gold bull.

But now more than ever gold mining companies are finding it increasingly difficult to do what they do best. The geopolitical, regulatory, inflationary and environmental hurdles are higher than ever. And the discovery shortfalls from the previous bear-market cycle have really hindered this industry's growth prospects.

In recent years, a growing number of countries have permitted their citizens to establish personal retirement accounts and allow them to choose the investments they may hold, including precious metals. But should an investor include a precious metals component in his or her long-term investment plan? And if so, how does one decide which precious metal investment product to own for retirement purposes?

Well, gold is settling comfortably above 700 an ounce – what now? If you're stupid you'll be selling all your gold shares because you fear gold dropping back to 640. If you have any common sense you will notice this upward move is more than a short term rally.

Silver in Bullish Technical Formation, Targeting Powerful Upmove $17.30 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

If in fact the Fed must cut rates at least one or two more times, and must press Fed funds to 4.25-4.00% during this rate cut cycle -- avert recession and stimulate economic growth -- then just maybe the "inflation genie" will be allowed out of the bottle for a while. We will know that if and when Silver (not gold) starts to accelerate to the upside. When rising inflation psychology takes root, it will be the less obvious "precious" metal that flashes its buy signal.

Steepening US Treasury Yield Curve to Ignite Gold - Stagflation Around the Corner / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe face of all the world has changed, since first I heard the footsteps of your official rate cut. Sorry, borrowed a front line from a Robert Browning love poem, who wrote about ‘footsteps of your soul' to Elizabeth Barrett. On September 18th, notes were taken on a host of prices immediately before the US Federal Reserve executed its cut of 50 basis points in both the Fed Funds target and the discount rate. The reaction in the entire price structures for the financial markets generally has been profound in only one week. Stocks are up. Foreign currencies are up. Oil and natural gas are flat but now down a little. Gold and silver up, along with their precious metals mining stocks. However, the anomaly sticks out like a sore bruised discolored thumb.

GOLD THOUGHTS - Gold To Correct Lower and US Dollar to Bounce from Oversold State / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Bailout Ben Bernanke, Chairman of U.S. Federal Reserve, last week demonstrated the intellectual bankruptcy at that institution. No broad based economic need for a 50 basis point interest rate cut was evident. Only purpose of rate cut was to aid investment banks and mortgage brokers. Further, that interest rate cut is now politically impossible to reverse without a crisis in the value of U.S. dollar.
