Nymex Crude Oil Looking Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The decline in nearby NYMEX Crude Oil prices from last Friday's high at 109.95 to yesterday's low at 104.84 returned the price structure to its prior multi-month upside breakout plateau at 104.50 (from Feb 19). This contained the selling pressure and attracted buying interest that then propelled oil above 107.00, in what looks like the completion of a near-term correction within the larger bull move off of last October's low at 74.95.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhether its the French-Japanese Nissan Leaf or the all American Chevrolet Volt, Chinese-American BYD and India's Reva, small scale producers of all-electric vehicles in other countries, and the infant industry's derived service providers like Israeli majority owned Better Place, times are very hard.

The Mystery Behind Rising Crude Oil Prices Solved / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Michael_Pento

Everything I’ve been warning about regarding the fallout from global central bankers’ love affair with inflation is coming to fruition. Consumers are once again dealing with the fact that the cost of filling up their gas tank is eating a significant portion of their disposable income. The price of a barrel of oil is now soaring above $100 a barrel; just as it always has done when the Fed has gone on one of their counterfeiting sprees. And it’s not just dollars that have been eroding in value because the price of oil in Euros is now at a record high. The sad truth is that with each iteration of QE, either in the U.S. or around the globe, it has sent oil prices skyrocketing, inflation rising and the economy into the tank.

"Speculation" in Absence of Physical Demand Blamed for Gold's 5% / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePRECIOUS METALS rallied in Asian and early London trade Thursday morning, with gold futures at one point recovering more than a third of yesterday's sharp $100-per-ounce decline as global stock markets also rose.

Broad commodity markets rose, but the single Euro currency slipped to fresh 1-week lows as European banks received the €529 billion in 3-year loans they requested from the European Central Bank's LTRO program yesterday.

Gold Fractal Projection of $3,500 into Mid 2012 Remains Intact! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: GoldRunner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we have discussed in a previous article, our Fractal Model suggests the wave for Gold in US Dollars will sweep up into the $3500 to $3600 area into the mid-year time-frame.  The leading edge of that time-frame begins in May and extends out for a few monthsA potential for Gold to spike to a $3900 extended fib level exists.  Like all parabolic moves in Gold, the late stages create the biggest price movements.  Personally, I would be happy with a huge Gold run up to the $3200 level.

Is Gold Backwardation Now Permanent? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Weiner, Casey Research writes: Worldwide, an incredible tower of debt has been under construction since President Nixon's 1971 default on the gold obligations of the US government. His decree severed the redeemability of the dollar for gold and thus eliminated the extinguisher of debt. Debt has been growing exponentially everywhere since then. Debt is backed with debt, based on debt, dependent on debt and leveraged with yet more debt. For example, today it is possible to buy a bond (i.e., lend money) on margin (i.e., with borrowed money).

Crude Oil And Inflation Economic Crisis / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConventional wisdom says high oil prices raise inflation and slow down economic growth. Recessions are therefore caused anytime oil prices spike, we are invited to believe. In the real world, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi has lowered interest rates twice since he took over as head of the ECB in November, as oil prices went on rising, but economic and finance observers claim that keeping borrowing costs down will get harder as oil prices cruise to record levels in euro terms.

Gas Prices as an Indicator of Energy Costs / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe consumer does not need more reminders about the pain experienced with every fill up at the pump. The drain on your pocketbook is growing. During economic dislocation and diminished vitality any prospects of a turnaround dim as gas approaches $4.00 a gallon and beyond. Been here before and the idea that this time the economy will be less effected is unreasonable. The cost for all energy is rising but the impact of gas prices has a personal burden on everyday budgets. The Price of Fuel provides a useful synopsis.

Why Are Gold and Silver Bulls Scared? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, first of all, bull markets climb a wall of worry. But second, there are some powerful media forces trying to maintain the status quo. They are constantly disparaging Gold and talking about imminent corrections, bubbles, etc. As a recent example, Warren Buffett did a recent hit piece on Gold published in the Wall Street Journal (video talking head summary here). And, of course, there is always Jon Nadler at kitco.com to make sure you are NEVER bullish on precious metals no matter what.

No Easy Fix for Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis month, as unleaded gasoline prices increased for 17 consecutive days (to a national average of $3.647 per gallon - up 11% thus far this year) and West Texas Intermediate crude joined Brent crude in breaking through a $100 per barrel level, energy prices emerged as a full blown political issue. While President Obama conveniently claimed that rising prices were the consequence of an improving economy (they're not, and it isn't) Republican fingers began to point sanctimoniously at current drilling policies. And while none of the accusers had any idea why prices were actually going up, the award for the most dangerous 'solution' must go to Bill O'Reilly at Fox News. The master of the "No Spin Zone" announced that high pump prices could be permanently brought down by a presidential order to restrict exports of refined gasoline. Not only does Mr. O'Reilly's idea demonstrate contempt for the U.S. Constitution but it also displays a thorough lack of economic understanding.
