Expecting Crude Oil Prices to End 2012 Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: Forecasts for oil prices in the second half of 2012 and on into 2013 are varied, but there's one point on which virtually all agree: Oil prices won't be going down.

One reason is that oil prices have already dropped substantially in recent weeks.

Gold’s “Contrarian Moment” / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: David_Galland

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlancing at the news most days, it's hard not to feel like Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day. In the event you are unfamiliar with the movie, in it Murray's character becomes trapped in the same day… day after day.

In the current circular condition, we have the powers-that-be assuring us that the next high-level meeting will finally produce a permanent fix to the broken economy, essentially solving the sovereign debt crisis. Then, in no more than a few days, or at most a couple of weeks, the fix is revealed to be flawed and the crisis again sparks into flames... followed shortly thereafter by yet another high-level meeting – and the cycle begins anew.

Gold Price Extreme Calls / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold went mostly sideways in April and remains 15% beneath its September peak at $1921.50 basis spot.

Despite it's lackluster performance over the past eight months, forecasts for ever-higher prices abound. The latest extreme call is for gold to "go parabolic" and touch "$7,000". Apparantley, 11 consecutive yearly up closes, a new record for a commidity, is not straight up enough. Our stance remains that gold has completed a five-wave rally from August 1999 at last years high.

Cleantech Consolidates Before The Next Big Push / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCleantech, green energy and sustainable development technology are coming of age, into a changing and difficult world. The conclusion by many analysts at this time is that only those businesses that target a comprehensive and diverse energy strategy, which really balances out the risks and rewards will create and maintain enough competitive advantage and industrial momentum to gain lasting success in the resource-constrained world of today. The rearview mirror image however looks good: 2011 was a record year for investment flows and government support to the very broadly defined "clean energy and sustainable development" space.

Will Gold and Silver Fall Hard with the Euro? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor many years now gold and silver -by its pattern of following gold wherever it goes-- have been treated by traders, investors and central banks as a 'counter to the U.S. dollar' and quite rightly so; this definition, however, applies primarily to the long-term value of the dollar and not simply to the daily gyrations of the dollar's exchange rate.

Strong Evidence of an Important Low in Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo weeks ago we proclaimed a major bottom could be imminent in the precious metals sector. Our basis for making the prediction was that the metals and shares were extremely oversold, breadth indicators were at 2008 levels, sentiment was contrarian bullish and markets were nearing areas of strong support. In this missive we review the compelling evidence for this important bottom and discuss the potential fundamental driving forces for the start of the next cyclical bull market in this sector.

Gold Bugs Will be Vindicated / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Alasdair_Macleod

In recent weeks, while the eurozone has suffered escalating levels of systemic stress in government bond markets and its banking system, the gold price has fallen under $1,600. One would have thought that – but for the occasional fat-finger trade – gold would rise in all this instability, not fall. Putting aside short-term considerations, the simple reason has to be that the investment establishment, which has bought into the bond market bubble, does not believe that gold is any longer an alternative to paper money.

Gold and Silver, Fed Will Backstop a Run On the Exchange

Low Baltic Dry Index and Negative Real Rates Make Silver Attractive / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Recently, Bill Holter, a contributor to The Lemetropolecafe pointed out an interesting relationship between two major economic indicators and the quiet desperation that is propping up the world financial system.

The Baltic Dry Index or BDI provides a daily assessment of the cost of shipping key raw commodities by sea and is issued by London’s Baltic Exchange. The index covers 23 shipping routes for dry bulk carriers on a timecharter basis. These large ships move various commodities, such as coal, grain and iron ore, around the world.

Gold's Potential Move From Tier 3 to Tier 1 Capital / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInstitutional investors tend to prefer investments that are thought to contain the potential for growth, growth = sprouts. An investment has to produce a growing revenue stream - if it doesn't grow it doesn't compound. Gold is rejected as an investment because it doesn't produce sprouts, meaning the steady income and systematic growth so sought after by institutional investors just isn't there.
