By: Jennifer_Yousfi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe effects of soaring oil prices are finally trickling down to the pump and consumers are feeling the pinch.

How to Survive the Gas / Petrol Crisis / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: With gasoline prices up 15 cents a gallon in the last two weeks — and about 63% in the last 18 months — American drivers are feeling a pinch at the pump. Consumers are demanding that Congress "do something" to drive down the price of gasoline.

Two weeks ago, I listed seven things you could do to prepare for $200 per barrel oil . They included tips on getting the most miles from every gallon. Today, I have ideas for how we can get gasoline back to $3 per gallon — maybe even lower.

Global Food Shock / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs an American, I've taken for granted that I can get just about any food I want at the supermarket. In fact, the number of choices are dizzying. I never really thought about the tenuous chain between myself and my food. Less than 1% of the U.S. population is employed in agriculture, and 40% of these farmers are 55 or older. 1 The chain of transportation that brings goods to the stores is tenuous and depends on a few key railways and truck drivers. Supermarkets could experience spot shortages if the proposed trucker strike gains momentum or more drivers quit the business.

Why the Gold Bull Market is Far From Over / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Some talk of the end of the credit crunch. Some say that the gold bull market has suffered severe damage, which will affect its long-term prospects. If we were to accept these statements then it would appear that the gold ‘bull' market is over. But are these statements acceptable and do they reflect the true picture underlying the gold [and silver] markets? To get the proper perspective let's stand back and look at the ‘big' picture.

Soaring Gasoline, Diesel, and Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGasoline, usually taken for granted, is weighing heavily on consumer sentiment today. In the States, the AAA just reported that retail gas soared to an average of $3.65 per gallon nationwide! This all-time record high is motivating Americans to drive less, drive slower, and migrate to more efficient cars to save fuel.

As a student of the markets, I find gasoline fascinating. The impact of its pricing creates far-reaching ripples throughout the entire economy. And since transportation is such a basic necessity of life, everyone monitors gas prices on a regular basis. It is fun to watch and analyze such a widely-followed market.

OPEC Cartel Scuppering G7 Central Bankers Financial Sector Rescue Plans / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe “Group of Seven” central bankers, who control the money spigots in 2/3's of the world's economy, huddled with their colleagues from China and Russia behind closed doors in Basel, Switzerland this week, haunted by the “Crude Oil Vigilantes,” who threaten to unravel G-7 schemes to rescue troubled global banks. Earlier today, the price of West Texas Sweet traded as high as $124 /barrel, doubling from a year ago, and guiding Chicago Corn futures to all-time highs.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMuch discussion has taken place in recent weeks, regarding the possibility that gold and silver might continue to sink to lower levels, as the summer doldrums set in.

Real Crude Oil Price Peaks Trigger Recessions / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Black_Swan

Crude oil has a $25 dollar premium built into the price - We are not making this up; it comes from IMF economist John Lipsky, quoted in a story today carried by Bloomberg:

“IMF research indicates that if the dollar hadn't fallen from 2002 to 2007, oil prices would be $25 a barrel lower. Crude oil futures surpassed $120 a barrel this week for the first time. Commodity prices excluding fuel would be 12 percent lower, Lipsky said.”

Why a Top in Crude Oil is Bullish for Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTechnical analysis isn't just a study of price action of a single stock or market. It involves much more. It has been a while since I've written about intermarket analysis, which studies and compares the relationships between markets. Some markets will be weak if certain markets are in a bull trend. Some markets trend together. A simple example of intermarket analysis is that gold and oil (and most commodities) tend to rise together. Wouldn't that entail gold stocks rising as well? Wouldn't that mean rising oil is good for gold stocks?

Gold- The Only "Win-Win" Investment I know of / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: Gold's precipitous tumble from its record-high of $1,038 set on March 17 down to the recent $850 level has lots of people asking, "Is gold's bull market over?"

My answer: No! Not by a long shot!

I know you've been getting an earful from the talking-head ninnies about how the long-running commodity bull is getting short of breath and is about to be put out to pasture. Ignore them.

Global Food Riots Protend Trouble for the US Dollar / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Chris_Galakoutis

On a trip to Canada recently I couldn't help but notice the extensive media coverage paid to the worldwide food price inflation, as well as the riots breaking out in many countries over food shortages.

And of course the list of reasons given by the so-called ‘economists' interviewed are completely devoid of the one all important reason fueling what may arguably become an epic food price inflation: the declining value of the US dollar.

Anticipating a Top in Natural Gas / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

I am anticipating the establishment of a meaningful top in the U.S. Natural Gas Fund ETF (AMEX: UNG) in the vicinity of 53.00-55.00 in the upcoming days/weeks. Both my pattern and momentum work indicate that such a top is in development at this time, but that does not preclude the UNG from climbing to marginal new highs above 55.06 during the process.

US Economy No Recovery Whilst Housing Bust Continues- Gold $1200 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce every several months, an opportunity is presented on a silver platter to purchase a spectacular investment in a strong uptrend, with loud indications of continued upward trend in price. Gold is heading well past $1200 and silver is heading well past $25 in the next several months, despite the orchestrated annihilation of honest valid reporting. How many times have the clowns on Wall Street and the financial subservient media networks claimed that the worst was over for the US Dollar, gold, the US Economy, the housing market, and bank bond losses?

Gold Strategy- Buying on the Dips / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Wheat price has broken. Rice price has a short-term top. Corn may be topping out. Gold is down. Silver has taken a dive. Housing prices are in the middle of decade long bear market. Yet, oil futures continue to move higher, fueled by margin led speculation. All of that oil action is happening when no shortages of petroleum seem to exist anywhere. Oil price is rising due to 93+% financing of the purchase price of a futures contract.
