Gold Bullion Flowing From West to East / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Earlier this month Eric Sprott circulated a paper, co-authored by him, which concluded that Western central banks have considerably less physical gold than they claim. It shows that since the year 2000 there has been a net increase in identifiable annual demand of 2,268 tonnes, and concludes that some supply, apart from mine output from the “free” world, must come from Western central banks – because there can be no other source.

The Forces That Will Push Silver Over $100 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Steve_St_Angelo

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are tremendous forces at work that will push silver over $100 an ounce.  Very few precious metal analysts understand all the forces that are at work.  Some analysts focus on specific areas such as the gold-silver ratio and technical analysis, while others write about future investment and industrial demand.  And then of course, we have the more unorthodox analysts who delve into the ongoing manipulation of gold and silver -- a realization shared by the author of this article.

Gold And Silver – Market Says Wait / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Michael_Noonan

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a reason why it has not been easy to trade gold or silver, of late. One area where information is least reliable is in the middle of a trading range. That is precisely where the price of gold is currently, on the larger monthly time frame. However, while waiting idly until clarity re-enters the picture, we can do some stage-setting in preparation for what is to come, in either direction.

Peak Oil And The Olduvai Gorge / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Olduvai Gorge theory of Richard Duncan was that human society would be forced back to the anthropoid ape stage of evolution by peak oil and energy scarcity, and would live like Tanzania's "Lucy" the best known precursor or human ancestor, taxonomically called "Australopithecus afarensis", of about 2 million years ago. Duncan's angle, developed in the late 1990s, was that peak oil and energy resource depletion would firstly make inevitable, then speed up this retreat and defeat of Humanity, as human society was forced back to hunting and gathering. An Internet search with Olduvai Gorge theory will produce hundreds of responses.

Negative Real Interest Rates Continue To Drive The Gold Price / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeople tend to focus on the daily “noise” and often forget the long term view. The first point that Ronald Stoeferle made during our discussion, was that the major topics of his first report (from  five years ago) are still relevant. In fact, he doesn’t see any fundamental change since then. The only change he noticed is that the figures became bigger, in the first place the debt levels and the amounts of the rescue packages.

Clean Coal And The Transformation Of Society / Commodities / Coal

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe OECD's so-called "oil and energy watchdog agency", the International Energy Agency (IEA) continues to claim, firstly, that CO2 sequestration and deep underground storage or other disposal - called CCS - is a vital and obligatory energy revolution for all countries, due to the anthropogenic global warming crisis. Secondly it claims that CCS can be made a technological and industrial reality but will not "significantly harm the economy" or create the need for an unprecedented transformation of both the economy and society.

Protests broke out Wednesday across Europe in a coordinated day of action over ongoing austerity policies. While some of the largest and most violent protests took place in Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy also took to the streets.

Nickel Metal Mining Like its 1864 / Commodities / Nickel

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNickel Sulphide Project Pipeline Empty

Nickel is present in over 3000 different alloys that are used in over 300,000 products for consumer, industrial, military, transport/aerospace, marine and architectural applications.

Nickel's biggest use, about 65%, is in alloying - particularly with chromium and other metals to produce stainless and heat-resisting steels. Its primary function is to stabilize the austenitic (face-centered cubic crystal) structure of the steel. Normal carbon steel will, on cooling, transform from an austenite structure to a mixture of ferrite and cementite. When added to stainless steel nickel stops this transformation keeping the material fully austenite on cooling. Austenitic stainless steels have high ductility, low yield stress and high tensile strength when compared to carbon steel - aluminum and copper are examples of other metals with the austenitic structure.

The Cash Broilers Market / Commodities / Livestock

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

J. Wellington Wimpy was always one of our favorites. The guy was somewhat of a gourmet as his favorite food was hamburgers. He was also a pal of Popeye, an individual addicted to spinach. However, Wimpy would not be happy with the modern world. Finding a good hamburger is tough these days.¹ (Are they still legal in the nanny republic of NYC?) Today the world is filled with an endless variety of boneless, skinless, tasteless, tough-to-chew chicken breast sandwiches? Wimpy would think the world has gone mad if he were still around.

Gold and Silver Bullish Technicals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the US stock markets falling sharply since the elections, shell-shocked investors are scrambling for the exits.  And this mass exodus is certainly rational in light of 2013’s record tax hikes looming for American investors.  But with interest rates near record lows, cash yields nothing and bonds are hyper-risky.  So a fantastic alternative for capital is the precious metals, which are very cheap technically.

Shale Gas Will be the Next Market Bubble to Pop / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "shale revolution" has been grabbing a great deal of headlines for some time now. A favourite topic of investors, sector commentators and analysts - many of whom claim we are about to enter a new energy era with cheap and abundant shale gas leading the charge. But on closer examination the incredible claims and figures behind many of the plays just don't add up. To help us to look past the hype and take a critical look at whether shale really is the golden goose many believe it to be or just another over-hyped bubble that is about to pop, we were fortunate to speak with energy expert Arthur Berman.

Gold and Silver: Accumulation and Liquidity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

As history has shown again and again, hard currencies like gold and silver are perhaps the only truly safe long term investments.

Part of the safety of these assets arises from the fact that they are traditionally accumulated and hoarded by individuals, especially in financially challenging times and periods of high inflation. Even more importantly, precious metals like gold and silver are liquid assets that can be readily sold for currency or exchanged in a barter situation.

Exxon Supports Carbon Taxes / Commodities / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSurprising to some, Exxon Mobil Corp. is now flexing its political and media muscles as part of a growing coalition, ranging from environmentalists to advocates of reindustrialisation, political isolationists and a large slice of the energy sector, which backs a US carbon tax. This new taxation would be an alternative to the costly additional regulations the Obama administration is mulling. Once upon a time, that is 3 years ago, any talk about carbon taxes was anathema in Washington.

U.S. Fiscal Cliff, Asian Currency Wars, Buoys the Gold market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTexas Republican Ron Paul’s maverick crusade to “audit the Fed”, and to rein-in the “fourth branch” of the US-government, suffered a major blow in the wake of the November 6th elections that saw President Barack Obama prevailing over his Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Adding insult to injury, the Republican Party not only failed to secure a majority in the Senate, but it lost 2-seats. Mr Paul is the author of a bill to audit the clandestine activities of the Fed that passed the House by a 327-98 vote on July 25th, exceeding the two-thirds majority needed.  Astoundingly, 89 Democrats joined 238 Republicans to approve it.
