Solving The Global Energy Equation: Demand-Supply-Infrastructure / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLittle remarked by most analysts of the OECD-wide financial and debt rout in 2008-2011, world energy demand rebounded fast from its sharp plunge in 2008-2009. For the year 2010 the BP Statistical Review of 2011 painted a dramatic rebound story. World energy demand jumped by 5.6% led by coal demand growing over 7%, gas demand growing almost as much, and oil consumption by 3.1% as China moved to become the world's biggest single energy using nation. With no surprise, oil prices rose by 29% on average in 2010 from the year previous.

The Gold GroundHog Grind / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA very important objective change has taken place in the gold market. Its price is not moving above the resistance established in the 1600 to 1900 wide berth range. Its price is not moving below support in the same wide permitted range. When the gold price has approached the 1800 level recently, all manner of naked soldiers emerge with imaginery swords to whack the price down, to bring it under heel. The ruse has a high cost in the real world though, as the gold cartel has been forced to shed an enormous supply of gold as punishment for each naked short episode. The opponents to fraudulent controlled manipulated markets have emerged in force to respond. They fight from the East. They fight for a fair and equitable market.

Gold ad Crude Oil Unfolding Trading Patterns / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past two months we have seen all the focus from traders and investors be on the equities market. And rightly so and stocks run higher and higher. But there are two commodities that look ready to explode being gold and oil (actually three if you count silver).

Below are the charts of gold futures and crude oil 4 hour charts. Each candle stick is 4 hours allows us to look back 1-2 months while still being able to see all the intraday price action (pivot highs, pivot lows, strong volume spikes and if they were buyers or sellers…).

By: The_Energy_Report

Not Even Saudi Arabia Can Save Us From High Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: With oil prices soaring ever higher, Saudi Arabia stepped in last week and vowed to increase its production by 25% if necessary.

But while that assurance managed to siphon a few dollars off of oil futures, the reality is there's nothing Saudi Arabia - or anyone else, for that matter - can do about rising oil prices.

Lunacy and Confusion Over the Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Paul_Mladjenovic

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt drives me crazy when I read stuff by “economists” that is just plain wrong. Some of them are allegedly “MBAs” and “PhDs” but I think that their common sense is actually “DOA”.

Unfortunately, millions in the public arena see their interviews and blogs and they seem to automatically swallow their commentaries… hook, line and sinker. Let’s address some of the nonsense that these pundits are expressing.

Super-Cooled Natural Gas is Red Hot in International Markets / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNatural gas transforms into a liquid when it’s cooled to minus 260 degrees, enabling exporters to load the liquefied commodity onto specialized carriers for shipment to an import terminal.

LNG frees gas from the physical constraints of the global pipeline system. Before the widespread commercialization of LNG technology, natural gas located far offshore or in remote areas was considered stranded and had no economic value because producers couldn’t deliver output to consumers. LNG allows natural gas produced in Australia or offshore West Africa to high-demand markets such as Europe and Asia.

Bernanke's Problem with the Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his new lecture series, Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Ben Bernanke is going out of his way to discuss the "problems with the gold standard." To a central banker, the gold standard may be considered "competition," as their power would likely be greatly diminished if the U.S. were on a gold standard. The Fed, Bernanke argues, is the answer to the problems of the gold standard. We respectfully disagree. We disagree because the Fed ought to look at a different problem.

Forget Goldman Sachs; Only Fools Rush Into Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Is Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) playing us all for Muppets when they say stocks now present a generational buying opportunity?

The investment bank's 40-page bullish report, titled "The Long Good Buy: The Case for Equities," says to forget the huge run-up since 2009, forget the 25% rise in equities over the last five-and-a-half months, and forget bonds. This party is just getting started.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarch seems to be leaving us like a lamb, although “March Madness” is still in effect, as college basketball marched into “The Final Four”

It is safe to predict that more Americans are paying attention to the action on the courts than the tired rhetoric and electoral mash-up where another final four bid for our attention, over-hyped in confrontational terms by political commentators who, like their sports counterparts, are just there to keep score:

Gold Surges After Bernanke Speech / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Spot gold surged this morning in reaction to Bernanke's speech, which was and is being "translated" as an overture to keep rates very low and Fed policy very accommodative for the forseeable future. In other words, to "create" the environment that will be most conducive to fostering job creation.

Be that as it may, traders and investors interpreted Bernake's remarks as supportive for current easy money policy, but also as a primer designed to help the markets manage their expectations about the future of current policy.

Gold and China: Where the Bulls and Bears Square Off / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo paraphrase the great Steve Martin, today’s investors are very passionate people and passionate people tend to overreact at times. An overreaction is exactly what’s happened in gold and global markets in recent weeks. While market bulls have been sniffing out data points to support their case, market bears have continued to take a glass-half-empty approach.

Stealth Bottom Coming in Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe struggle of the mining stocks has surprised many including us. We thought record profits and a bullish environment would catapult the miners out of a consolidation and into a major breakout. The perception of an enduring recovery and the endurance and persistence of the wall of worry stage has left the gold stocks unloved and under-owned and for far longer than we expected. We do have to remember that the miners exploded in 2009 and 2010 and it is normal for a bull market to spend months in consolidation.
