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. Silver… can extend to 17.40-17.50 before facing significant resistance. At the same time, platinum continued its tear higher on the back of fundamental supply concerns in South Africa and is yet to show signs of letting up.~ Precious Points: Ready, Set, Retrace , February 09, 2008

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.

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.

Gold Rising As All Currencies Devalue In Stagflation Environment / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA profound broad gold rally is underway. It is occurring in almost every single major currency. Unsure about Zimbabwe though. In the last article, two major forecasts were made, both hit squarely. The euro fell, heading toward the 143 stated target forecasted. Talk circulates about the Euro Central Bank eventually cutting interest rates. Pressure will grow enormously. The Germans are isolated in wanting a hard line against price inflation. A Latin Bloc has formed, urging a rate cut as the southern nations of France , Italy , Spain , Portugal , and Greece suffer from housing declines. Even Ireland has joined that bloc. A compromise will be worked out, more like a gang-up against the Germans.

Gold Price Out of Synch With US Dollar Index, Expect Sharp Decline / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy the time you read this, more than enough words will have been expended on the possible sale of Gold by the IMF. Therefore, my comments on the matter will be brief. A group of economists at the IMF want to sell Gold to buy debt paper in order to earn interest income to pay the salaries of a bunch of economists asleep at their desks. Such is not the kind of thinking that makes market tops. Sounds more the thinking that went into the Bank of England sales in 1999.
