Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger Tag Team Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

It is no secret that Warren Buffett publicly dislikes gold. Earlier this year, Berkshire’s CEO and largest shareholder reminded investors in a Fortune article that gold has limited industrial demand and even said the precious metal “will remain lifeless forever.” Apparently, the strong distaste for the yellow metal runs throughout the Omaha-based company.

The Gold, Energy and Agriculture Commodities Bull Market Rolls On / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Krauth writes: Despite the setback caused by the 2008 financial crisis, the commodities bull market rolls on. A short four years later, many commodities are trading at or near all-time highs.

And thanks to huge swaths of the developing world moving up the ranks, the current bull market in commodities promises to be one for the history books-- both in time and size.

After all, the wants and needs of 7 billion people are an irresistible and monumental force.

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

By: Bob_Kirtley

FRANCE
We start the week with news of changes at top in France where the French President Nicolas Sarkozy becomes another victim of the financial crisis and subsequent austerity measures. 'Sarko' as he is know by some has been ousted by the socialist leader Francois Hollande, who has been elected on a platform that includes reducing the retirement age, a 75% tax on those who earn more than one million euros and the re-negotiation of the European 'Fiscal Pact' with its European partners.

Gold Silver and Mining Stocks Approaching a Major Bottom / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a pattern finishing in Gold, Silver and the HUI Amex Gold Bugs Index that is bullish, a sideways wave 4 descending triangle that suggests a bottom is fast approaching and a rally that lasts many months is likely to start within a month or two. Triangles are sideways consolidation patterns that let markets digest the previous large move, before continuing in the same direction the trend was headed before the triangle begins. In this case, that trend would be up. This is a pretty large triangle pattern, correcting a three year rally. We could see more decline in prices for another few weeks, then a bottom should arrive.

Carbon Credit Derivatives / Commodities / Climate Change

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Carbon credits are tradable permits or certificates that are typically related to the emission of one ton carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas considered responsible for the controversial global warming process. 

Carbon credits can be earned by companies who engage in ecologically friendly practices that remove the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from the environment.  These credits can then be sold to other companies that continue to produce carbon emissions as a way to finance further reductions in carbon dioxide emissions.

Silver and the Nature of Supply and Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Many observers of the silver market have wondered why futures prices for silver seem so low when demand for the physical metal continues to increase in the face of an ever dwindling supply of the precious and industrial metallic commodity. 

In essence, the economic model of price determination by supply and demand factors would seem to indicate a considerably higher equilibrium price for silver than what is currently prevailing.

Natural Gas Coiling After Upmove / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

On April 24, with natural gas futures in the 1.970 to 2.028 range, we alerted subscribers to an imminent up-move, writing: "The little speck of an upturn off of last Thursday's decade low at 1.902 into yesterday's high at 2.022 (+6.03%) accompanied by powerful anecdotal oscillator evidence that natural gas is exhausted on the downside, and that we are witnessing the initial up-move within what should be a base building period ahead of a forthcoming bull phase."

Crisis in Mining / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA combination of mass retirements and increasing natural resource demand from emerging economies has created a crisis in the resource extraction sector - one which is definitely not on investor’s radar screens.

Currently there is a “massive talent gap” that is going to get worse because the global mining industry is experiencing the biggest wave of workforce retirements in 70 years - the oldest baby boomers turned 65 years old in 2011.

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his 1923 book ‘A Tract on Monetary Reform’, John Maynard Keynes famously wrote ‘In truth, the gold standard is already a barbarous relic.’

The Silver Bull Market Is Over? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Investmentscore.com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the Silver Bull Market Over?  This is one question that we feel very confident that the answer to it is no; but still we are specifically watching for articles or news stories suggesting that the precious metals bull market is over.  We have seen a few articles announcing the end of the metals bull market and we will explain why this is significant to us later in this article.  But first, there are a host of reasons why we think the bull market in precious metals is alive and well and we will address a few of these reasons in this article.

Precious Metals: Don’t Want To Play Anymore? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dudley_Baker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe suspect that many precious metals investors are saying, “We don’t want to play anymore!” and our reply is, “You want to quit right now, right at the bottom of this cycle? You must be crazy - crazy with a capital C!” True, this is a very challenging market environment for resource shares, but we know what the ultimate outcome will be: higher share prices. The only question is “when” and our opinion is that we are very close in time (within days or a week or two at most) of being able to say that the lows are behind us. Let me explain.
