Gold Coins Render Unto Caesar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat the history of ancient gold coins says about Europe's kingless, faceless money today...
SO WHEN Vespasian was proclaimed Emperor by the legions in Egypt in AD 69, he hurried to strike silver and gold coins at Antioch,
Tacitus tells us.

Two hundred years later, the "insane despot" Commodus would only believe that his friend Perennius was plotting to overthrow him when
he was shown coins already bearing his former favorite's image. And ancient Persian kings went further, says the later Armenian chronicler Moses of Chorene, each seeing to it that "all the money in the royal treasury was recoined with his effigy" as soon as he took power.

Gold Futures Contrary Speculation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith gold awakening from its usual summer slumber, traders are getting more excited about its prospects.  Presumably this shifting sentiment will even grow to encompass futures traders, who’ve been incredibly bearish on the yellow metal for months now.  While traders hold futures guys in high esteem, they are just as susceptible to groupthink as everyone else.  They are actually a powerful contrary indicator for gold.

U.S. Water Shortages to Impact Power Supply / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleElectricity enables our modern life style - the degree of dependency we have built into our lives in regards to "power on demand" has raised expectations that plentiful electricity will be available to us 24/7.

"Electrical power, in the short span of two centuries, has become an indispensible part of modern day life. Our work, leisure, healthcare, economy, and livelihood depend on a constant supply of electrical power. Even a temporary stoppage of power can lead to relative chaos, monetary setbacks, and possible loss of life. Our cities live on electricity and without the customary supply from the power grid, pandemonium would break loose." Dieselserviceandsupply.com

Why Gold Mining’s Still a Great Place to Make Money / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: InvestmentContrarian

Gold has shown some good support and buying after previously declining to below $1,525 an ounce. The metal has rallied above $1,600 and is currently showing some promise, being on the verge of a possible breakout towards $1,700.

I continue to like gold going forward, given the massive financial distress and possible exit of Greece from the eurozone, despite recent statements from the European Central Bank and its desire to keep the eurozone intact. And then there is Spain and the other five eurozone countries currently in a recession.

Ready, Steady, GOLD / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn anticipation of the ECB and the Federal Reserve deciding to stimulate the economy through an infusion of newly created paper money gold prices have started to recover and head north. We know that the Greek PM Antonis Samaras has met with Jean Claude Junker, President of the Eurogroup in order to try and secure more time for Greece to get its act together and that further meetings are planned in an attempt to resolve this problem. However, so many of these meetings have been held with very little emanating from them making it difficult for us to become enthusiastic about this latest round of what has been a merry-go-round of talks over the last two years. As we see it they will print rather than have Greece leave the eurozone as the fear of contagion worries them more than the fear of inflation.

Gold vs Stocks, Are You The Market’s “Sucker”? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Investmentscore.com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe investment world is filled with misleading “facts” and flashy “materials” that cause investors to lose money.  If one blindly follows what the average investor thinks and does, they are likely to wind up being the “sucker” in the market.  If, on the other hand, an investor digs a little deeper and attains a unique insight on the market or “edge”, then the probability of profitability increases dramatically.

Why Uranium Prices Will Spike in 2013 / Commodities / Uranium

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnalyst David Sadowski of Raymond James sees a lot on the horizon for uranium: a supply shortfall, escalating Asian demand and seasonality, to name just a few. As a former geologist-turned sellside analyst, Sadowski's conviction in uranium's bullish future is rock solid, and he urges investors to get exposure now, as prices in this sector can climb quickly once they're set in motion. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Sadowski shares his favorite names that are set to deliver megawatt-size returns to investors.

Science Wrestles With A Crisis Worse Than Global Warming / Commodities / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiving this year's BBC Dimbleby lecture, Sir Paul Nurse the president of the UK's prestigious science institution the Royal Society unveiled a select list of what he considered were the "follow on crises" now that anthropogenic global warming has become so controversial, to scientists, and so boring to the general public. Without saying he specifically drew from Charles Darwin when thinking about the finance sector, bankers, brokers and traders, Nurse said that Darwin recognized the "low origins of Man". In Darwin's book 'The Descent of Man', he wrote: “Man with all his qualities, with sympathy… with benevolence ... with his god-like intellect... with all these exalted powers – man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin”.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVice President Joe Biden was accused of racism when suggesting a Romney administration would “unchain banks” that in turn might put the black audience he was talking to back into “shackles.” The political uproar overshadows a reality that knows no racial boundaries: a person in debt is not a free person; a nation in debt is not a free nation.

Mistrust Fuels Continued Gold Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the face of growing fears of a renewed global plunge into economic depression and a climate of low apparent price inflation, investors might expect commodities and precious metals to be falling in price. Instead, gold continues to hover around a relatively high $1,640 an ounce and silver at $29. At the same time, central banks - including those of the ever more important China, Russia and India - continue aggressively to buy gold.
