Graphite and Rare Earth Metals for the 21st Century / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe list of once-obscure metals and minerals that are becoming "strategic" seems to be growing daily. However, population growth and rising living standards in developing countries are driving demand for most raw materials. In this exclusive interview with The Critical Metals Report, Institute for the Analysis of Global Security Senior Fellow Jack Lifton explains how increasing demand and harder-to-mine deposits are raising prices on these essential materials.

Gold Odysseus Journey Continues! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is the Odysseus of the markets, destined to wonder the hinterland of the financial world for years without achieving the deserved safe haven status. Like Odysseus gold will eventually arrive and the general population will embrace it for what it is, the one and only store of wealth that exists today. Loathed and assailed by the mainstream press, gold is deliberately kept hidden in the financial shadows by those that continue to shovel out paper “assets” like so much manure. Right now the Dow is all the rage with the press as they preach the gospel of the US stock market as a port in the storm. They do so with an old time religious fervor that would make a snake oil salesman blush. The object of the message is to pry that last penny from the hands of the last widow and orphan left standing. Value be damned! There is always a greater fool out there who will want your paper asset at some higher price.

Where a Nation's Gold and Your Gold Should be Held / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePurpose of Holding Gold

Most central banks hold their nation's gold in the vaults of the world's leading financial centers' central bank vaults. These include New York, London, and Canada among others. In a peaceful, cooperative world, this is sensible as one of the prime purposes of central banks holding gold is to cover the nation's international trade payments when their own currency becomes unacceptable and their reserves of foreign exchange are depleted. By positioning the gold outside the country, it's instantly accessible for payments or guarantees of payments.

Gold and Silver Remain Strong as Greece Debt Nears Deadline / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Precious metals posted their worst daily performance of the year on Friday.  A stronger-than-expected, but highly criticized unemployment report added strength to the U.S. recovery story and the dollar.  Now, the U.S. dollar continues to climb higher as Greek politicians struggle to agree on an austerity plan that is needed in order to secure another bailout for the country.  Although the euro is giving a boost to the dollar, gold and silver continue to maintain key support levels.

In the Gold Bullring / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter prices fell 10 percent in December, many investors wondered if the bull market in gold was running out of steam. That was before Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke swooped in with a "red cape" and fired the bulls back up. Since the Fed reassured the world that interest rates will remain at "exceptionally low levels" for another two years, gold has jumped more than three percent.

Gold and Silver Mining Stocks Tops Might Be Just Around the Corner / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis December gold prices swooned by more than 10 per cent in their biggest monthly fall since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. For some insecure gold investors it was like a bad dream. They were happy to wake up to a bright, crisp January whose performance was more than enough to warm the heart of any gold investor. It was the metal's strongest starting month in 32 years giving a resounding answer to those who wondered if the 11-year rally in gold had ended (and they always seem to come out of the woodwork every time gold experiences a correction.)

Critical Materials for Critical Technologies / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCritical materials have been described in various ways, with perhaps the clearest being the following two definitions:

Junior Gold Mining Stock / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt only took eleven years, but in 2011 global gold-mine production has finally returned to pre-bull levels.  In fact, with 2011’s volume expected to come in at around 88m ounces, we’ll see a new all-time production high.  The latest exploration-and-development cycle is finally starting to bear fruit!

This fruit has been hard-earned though, as the miners have had to reverse the course of a brutal production decline that bottomed out in 2008.  Incredibly global gold production had fallen nearly 13% in five years from 2003’s high, to a level not seen since the mid-1990s.  And needless to say that painted quite an alarming fundamental picture considering demand was on the rise.
