Silver Could Take Off Like a Rocket on Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is important not to be fooled by the fact that silver hasn't yet broken out to new highs, unlike gold, and to interpret this as a sign of weakness, for the current setup in silver is very bullish, even if it reacts back significantly short-term as now looks likely.

Gold Gearing Up For Strong Bull Market Rally Into 2008 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold's situation now bears a striking resemblance to the period from September through November 2005, which was followed by an almost uninterrupted advance that resulted in near 60% gains. At that time gold had just broken out from a 7-month triangular consolidation to become overbought. A consolidation pattern then formed which involved it correcting back to the vicinity of its 50-day moving average, after which it took off.

Weekly Gold and Silver Technical Analysis Report - Another Global Financial Markets Collapse? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre we in for another global market collapse? Good thing we focus here on the precious metals, which are doing just fine so far.

Gold Open Interest (cont.)
Just a couple of additional notes on the gold open interest. As mentioned last week my open interest data only goes back some five years, to 03 Dec 2002 . At that time the open interest stood at 158,433. Over this past five year period, as gold generally trended higher, the open interest also generally trended higher. The increase in open interest during this time was 328,775 contracts representing 32.9 million ounces of gold which at today's price represents $25.3 Billion.

US Electricity Generation Crisis Building / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil prices are rapidly approaching $100 a barrel. Coal is vilified as the cause of global warming, and a big tax imposition is only a matter of time. Natural gas is several times its levels earlier in the decade, despite a sector depression that seems to continue to worsen.

New nuclear plants are a decade away at best. Wind and solar plants run at low capacity rates even under the best of circumstances. And geothermal is only available in a few regions.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: Rate Cut, Bernanke, One More Time! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo, we didn't get our liftoff last week exactly as expected, or perhaps it's still playing out, but the issue for the bigger picture in gold remains. Remember, what has to be decided is whether this is the middle part of a corrective pattern from the 2006 highs or the start of a new impulsive bull leg. Ultimately, silver will probably take its general direction from whichever outcome is decided for gold, leaving a very bullish future with the possibility of one more correction first. $14 … remains a psychological resistance level.

Too Big for Gold and Too Big to Handle - Major Funds Dominate the Global Economy / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold price has continued to look solid in the $650 area. Confidence in the banking, not just the mortgage system was given quite a blow last week. The $ rallied, but is in the process of turning down again. What lies ahead and why? Here are some of our views, which were published in the latest edition of the Gold Forecaster last week. These views are now being expanded there, with a closer look at the two types of "liquidity" supply. Their appearance has been sudden spread over just a few recent years. For the rapid growth of sovereign wealth funds, petrodollar investors [government controlled], hedge funds, and private equity groups [profit seekers] poses risks for the world economy as large as themselves.

Crude Oil Bull Market Cycles Point to a Sharp Correction / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter powering above $85 per barrel this week, crude oil is one of the hottest commodities around. Although this week's stellar prices haven't yet reached oil's all-time inflation-adjusted highs near $100 from way back in spring 1980, these new nominal record prices are really getting speculators' blood flowing.

Nearly everyone is bullish on oil, and for very good reason. Global demand, led by the rapidly-industrializing Asia , is growing relentlessly and will continue to do so for decades. Meanwhile existing oilfields are increasingly depleting, lowering production and raising costs. And despite vast sums of money poured into oil exploration globally, major new elephant finds have become exceedingly rare. And most of the world's known oil reserves sit in geopolitically-troubled regions, complicating recovery.

Technical Damage to Energy Stocks, XLE / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The weakness in the Energy Select SPDR (AMEX: XLE) today has inflicted some technical damage to the near-term chart structure. Let's notice that the plunge beneath 77.10/00 has violated the up-trendline off of the August low, which has triggered downside follow-through to initial support at 76.00-75.80. Judging from the very negative juxtaposition of the price action and sharply declining RSI momentum gauge, I expect additional weakness to press the XLE towards 74.00 prior to any meaningful recovery rally period.

Turkey and Iran Potential Conflicts Mean Crude Oil on Course to Hit $100 per barrel / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTension in the Middle East has always been a favorite tactic for the “Axis of Oil” – Iran, Russia, and Venezuela, to keep the price of crude oil pegged at artificially high levels. Talk of war in the world's most unstable region can inflate a hefty “war premium” into each barrel of OPEC and Russian oil. In the Middle East, wars seem to break-out every few years, and lulls in the fighting are often just a timeout, in order to re-supply and prepare for the next round of combat.

Is it Too Late to Buy Gold At This Price? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Gold price relativity : What gold owners can learn from the stock bull market of the 1990s

For contemporary market analysis, history begins in the year 1971 when the dollar was detached from gold and the era of free floating gold and exchange rates began. First, we had a gold bull market which began in 1971 and lasted until roughly the 1982/85 time period. Then we had a stock bull market that began in between 1982/85 and topped in roughly 2000. The current bull market in gold began in 2000 and, if it were to follow form, could be expected to top sometime around 2015-2017.

AGRI-FOOD THOUGHTS - Food and Energy Are the Most Important Consumer Products / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImagine owning a company where consumers have no choice but to buy the firm's product. Consumers have no choice but to buy food. The choice is not between a new cell phone or food. Consumers buy their food first, and then consider other products. Despite the nonsense put out by economists at the Federal Reserve and other centers of misinformation, food and energy are the most important components of the consumers' spending basket.
