Uranium Stocks Basing As Fukushima Proves Nuclear Power Is Here To Stay / Commodities / Uranium

By: Jeb_Handwerger

A significant base may be forming in uranium stocks -- seen in the Global X Uranium ETF (URA) -- as Japan's troubled nuclear energy industry passed its first major vote since the Fukushima tragedy. Many of the stocks that make up this etf are down more than 40% such as Uranium Resources (URRE) and Uranium Energy Corporation (UEC). But positive news is beginning to reemerge after three months of naysaying. Fukushima is proving nuclear is here to stay.

Indian Gold and Silver Imports Surge 222% as Official Inflation Surges to 8.65% / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is trading at $1,544.39/oz, €1,076.08/oz and £954.27/oz. Gold is marginally higher in most currencies today and on the verge of making new nominal highs in dollars, euros and pounds.

It is holding near record highs as there is no quick end in sight to economic turmoil in Europe after Greece was told to approve brutal new austerity measures to avoid defaulting on its debt. This would threaten the solvency of many western banks and the European Central Bank's Ordonez (member of the ECB’s governing council) warned this morning that the Greek crisis could have ‘transcendent consequences’.

Don't Get Suckered by Wall Street's Low Gold Price Forecasts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: I was scanning the news wires in search of a particular item late last week when a story caught my eye: It seems that Newmont Mining Corp. (NYSE: NEM), the world's No.2 gold producer, believes that the burgeoning demand from Asia's newly minted middle class will send the yellow metal up to $1,600 this year and even higher in 2011.

The Newmont story reminded me of another news item that I'd read just days before - a news-service poll of analysts that said that the current Wall Street consensus was for gold prices to reach $1,700 an ounce in 2015.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreece

This weekend, the E.U. Ministers promised the next tranche of money to Greece and a second bailout package if Greece enforces another bout of austerity on itself.

QE Illustrates Why Investors Should Have Exposure to Agri-Equities / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile thinking about corn and wheat and pork prices, we cannot help but note the importance of Wednesday, 22 June. On that day the Federal Open Market Committee of the U.S. Federal Reserve should read the eulogy for QE-2. As far as can be determined by impartial observers, that policy was a complete and utter failure. No positive economic benefits have been discernable. Rather, it created one great bear markets for the U.S. dollar that helped fuel one great run in commodity prices.

Will Gold Stock Investors Strike Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold prices passed the $1,500 per ounce mark for the first time ever in mid-April of this year and have set up shop around $1,525-$1,550 an ounce aside from a couple of short pullbacks in early May. So far in 2011, it’s been relatively status quo for those investors who’ve embraced gold as a way to protect themselves from currency debasement, excessive money printing and inflation as prices have increased 7.67 percent. BofA-Merrill Lynch (BofA-ML) analysts are forecasting gold prices could fall to $1,400 an ounce during seasonal weakness in July before rebounding as high as $1,650 an ounce by early fall.

Gold Top? Long-term Chart Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Willem_Weytjens

Today I had a look at one of the charts I created a long long time ago (in late 2008). I was amazed by the accuracy of the lines I drew back then.

I drew Fibonacci levels from the bottom in 1976 (100$)=0.00% and assumed the highest close of 1980 (834$) would be the 50% Retracement level.

Crude Oil Price Downward Pressure / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Frankly, there are so many cross-currents influencing the markets at any given time, uncertainty clearly has the upper hand -- even when we think that new information or decisions are alleviating some of the uncertainty.

Case in point:  crude oil prices.   Is downward pressure positive for equities (for obvious reasons: i.e., the consumer gets a "tax cut"), or negative because it might reflect a serious slow down in U.S. and global economic growth (read: China demand)?
