Gold Sharp Fall Despite Surging Investor Demand Blamed on Short-sellers / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold  fell sharply yesterday  on lower oil prices and the recently surging dollar, despite  unprecedented physical demand for coins and bars in the UK, US and internationally ( gold closed at $840.40  down $40.20 while silver  closed at $11.57 down $1.04 ).

As warned yesterday, anything is possible in the short term in these markets and leveraged trading in futures, CFDs and spread betting is an extremely high risk endeavour in the current markets and not advisable.

Resolve the Credit Crisis by Recapitalising the Banks with Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePrivatising profits, socializing losses (The Gold Standard Strikes Back... Part 2)

The 0.7 trillion dollar bailout plan of Treasury Secretary Paulson must be seen for what it is: a scheme to privatize profits while socializing losses. The scare tactics with which he was trying to railroad it through Congress has failed and the world is better for it. The malady has to be diagnosed properly. I summarize the popular diagnosis in five points.

How to Ride the Coming Precious Metals Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Global markets are whipsawing right now as the Federal Government tries to put out a fire in the credit markets with a flood of liquidity. But the rescue plan is failing. As a result, credit markets are spiraling into a deep freeze, threatening to destabilize the U.S. dollar.

Investors are running for cover ... because it sure beats jumping out the windows. Cash is good, to be sure. But if you're looking for your own golden parachute, consider my favorite yellow metal.

Crude Oil Rally Fails / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Crude oil prices are down about 7% from the intraday high and point towards a retest of the September lows at 93.36 and 90.50 next. Let's notice that yesterday's rally and today's initial attempt at extending yesterday's rally failed right at the sharply declining 20 DMA, which also represents the mid-point of the (width) of the declining Bollinger Bands. This is classic action: in a bull market, pullbacks find support at the rising 200 DMA, while in a bear market rallies fail and reverse to the downside from the declining 20 Day -- as is the case right now. I expect oil prices to plunge through the September lows on the way $80 next. Lower oil equates to a downside target of 70.00 in the US Oil Fund ETF (AMEX: USO).

$700 Billion Banking Bailout Will Drive Crude Oil to $250 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: I've been predicting record oil prices for a number of years now, so when crude oil prices recently plunged from their record highs, I warned investors and consumers that the decline was nothing more than a temporary respite.

But now it's clear that the fallout from the $700 billion banking bailout pact will virtually guarantee that my prediction will come true.

Will Commodities Recover from the Credit Crisis? / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Clif_Droke

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Money is the lifeblood of the economy.” This famous saying is easy enough to remember, yet how much easier is it to forget it when asset prices are pushed to unreasonable extremities. Consumers and investors alike are now being reminded of the veracity of this statement in a big way as the money panic rages on.

The term “credit crisis” can actually be broken down into two separate yet related categories. On the one hand the credit problem is a crisis in confidence. Confidence, after all, is the baseline requirement of any banking system. This is especially true for one as vast and reticular as the U.S. financial system. When confidence is lacking among participants in any credit-based financial system, money will become scarce and if the fear continues long enough, the wheels of commerce will grind to a halt.

Agri-Foods Mega-trend Gearing Up from Next Bullish Cycle / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne lesson of last nine years is that listening to Wall Street strategists is harmful to your future wealth. Doing just the opposite of daily hype of the business media is a good way to enhance your future wealth. Many Street strategists missed, for example, the rally in Gold while the stock market has produced really dismal returns. Now again they are attempting to mislead investors. Collapsing Wall Street firms really have very little to do with what happens in the world. Instead, the bail out plan simply diverts capital to more non productive investments.

Financial Crisis Worst Case Scenario- How Should I own Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEditor's Note: This article is written to address “worst-case” scenarios that should be considered as part of a comprehensive strategic wealth management plan. The author does not anticipate or predict that any such scenarios would or will materialize. However, planning for the worst while hoping for the best has always been excellent advice in both personal and business strategy and prudent planning may secure options for those who have planned appropriately. While reading, bear in mind that the probability of a worst-case scenario developing is always greater than zero and there are times when such a probability is considerably higher. Current events would appear to be raising the likelihood of financial and societal problems more severe than have been experienced in several generations.

Louis James "I am Buying All the Gold Bullion I Can" / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Louis James, Senior Editor of Doug Casey's International Speculator, describes a currency crisis of historic proportions that is dragging our economy down a dark and treacherous path lit only by the shining star of gold. James expects twists and turns in the precious metals sector and maintains his focus on the long-term bull trend. What stuns him, though, is the fact that Americans aren't "shouting in the streets" in panic now that the dollar is on death row with no pardon in sight.

Gold Holding Up Well Despite US Dollar Strength / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStrangely, or counter-intuitively, the Dollar has strengthened (vs. the Euro) during a crisis precipitated by a US-derived financial and banking debacle! How could this be the case? Perhaps perceptions have emerged that Europe is in worse shape than the US? Perhaps in spite of everything, the world's investors still need to be in Dollars to access US Treasury paper? Or, perhaps, the Central Banks have coordinated efforts to support the Dollar during this financial panic to avert a Reserve Currency crisis too?

Gold at $1125 Per Ounce Now / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Neil_Charnock

That is not a miss-quote it is the price of gold in Aussie dollars as I turn on my computer this morning. The worst of our fears have emerged for the financial system and it is too late for blame and I see no point in that anyway. It is not a constructive state of mind and more than ever people need to be constructive in this climate.

I managed to rescue my own father from the crisis only very recently – he refused to listen to me in years past but he did ask me to talk to his “Financial Advisor” to see if Charlie thought my thesis about gold and silver had merit. That was about 4 – 5 years ago. I will put Charlie's reply politely – “time is money and you are wasting mine so go away and stop bothering me”.

Gold Decoupling from other Commodities Hit by Demand Destruction / Commodities / Gold & Silver
