The Old Faithful Peak Oil Debate / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is a well known refrain: Peak Oil is always now ! The problem is that nobody noticed, because oil prices are so high and demand growth is almost zero. The ongoing and real economic recession in almost all OECD countries more than "trims" oil demand in these countries, still taking about 45 million barrels a day (Mbd) on a world total demand of about 89 Mbd, depending on estimates, which easily range through + or - 2 Mbd, and vary even more than that for seasonal variations.

Gold and Interest Rates, More than Joined at the Hip / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Interest rates to remain at zero for the next two years.”  Those were the words of Fed Chair - Sir Benjamin of Bernanke last week.  With inflation beginning to pick-up – the notion that rates would remain at zero for a prolonged period of time seems “paradoxical” to conventional economic thought.  There have been other misunderstood ‘paradoxes’ in economics in modern times.   Here’s how Wikipedia explains the relevance of this famous benchmark in economics:

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The Manganese Market, a New Economic Growth Barometer? / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleManganese's many uses in infrastructure and building materials make its market a strong barometer for gauging the world economy. Soaring growth in countries like China and India has led to high global demand. In this exclusive interview for The Critical Metals Report, Helen O'Malley, a bulk manganese specialist with CRU International in London, discusses how manganese prices are closely tied to the economy and, in contrast to exchange-traded base metals, overwhelmingly determined by supply and demand.

Gold Eyes $2,000, Is it a Bubble Ready to Burst? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven the most avid gold bugs, who’ve been stockpiling vast quantities of the barbaric metal for decades, and endured their fair share of panic shakeouts, were probably in a surreal state of “shock and awe,” while watching the price of the yellow metal soar to within 1% of the psychological $2,000 /oz level this week. It’s as if somebody launched a rocket on the Fourth of July. Since then, the price of gold has soared $400 /oz, zooming higher in a parabolic pattern. After all the bullish chatter on the blogosphere over the past decade, Gold, - the so-called barbaric metal, has triumphed over the stock peddlers on Wall Street.

Why George Soros Selling Gold and Buying Farmland / Commodities / Investing 2011

By: George_Maniere

What asset has appreciated more than any asset since the year 2000?
Answer: Farmland.  1,200%

I was talking to one of my readers and he sent me an article from Panama that talked about farmland. Food prices are skyrocketing all across the globe, and there’s no end in sight. The United Nations says food inflation is currently at 30% a year, and the fast-eroding value of the dollar is causing food prices to appear even higher in contrast to a weakening currency. As the dollar drops in value due to runaway money printing at the Federal Reserve, the cost to import foods from other nations looks to double in just the next two years — and possibly every two years thereafter.

Gold Value Propositions in Turbulent Times / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's a good time to stock up on gold stocks, according to Charles Oliver, senior portfolio manager with Sprott Asset Management, who sees a number of the equities trading at their lowest prices of the decade. As he tells readers in this exclusive Gold Report interview, "Gold has gone up 20%. The stocks have gone down. They are very cheap. These companies are increasing their earnings, they're increasing their cash flow, they're increasing their dividends—what a great opportunity."

The Neverending Gold is a Bubble Story / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold continued to make headlines last week, reaching nearly $1,900 an ounce on Friday before resting around the $1,850 level. Gold’s 15 percent rise to new nominal highs over the past month has rekindled “gold bubble” talk from many pundits. Long-term gold bulls have been forced to listen to these naysayers since gold reached $500 an ounce. If you would have joined their groupthink then, you would’ve missed gold’s roughly 270 percent rise since.

Gold Extremely Dangerous Parabolic Curve as Speculators Build Massive Positions / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNear the end of any investment cycle a transfer of ownership normally occurs, from investors to speculators. The asset moves from strong hands to weak hands, from real ownership to fictional ownership in the market for contracts for future delivery. That usually set up conditions for the penalty phase, as those still bleeding from the Silver bear market fully understand.

As we learn from Japan, owners of physical Gold in all forms are aggressively liquidating. From "Tokyo struggles to keep pace with gold rush" by L. Whipp from Financial Times, 20 August,

The Catalyst for Consolidation in the Gold Stocks Sector / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

The Gold and Silver business is one that naturally involves much consolidation. The industry product is the same and the business is such that mergers and acquisitions are commonplace. As many readers know, the secular bear market of the 1980s and 1990s had an obvious impact on the exploration side of the business. Larger mining companies cut exploration budgets because they had to. Fast forward to today and we know that has impacted supply and the ability of the large companies (who survived the bear market) to grow organically. Hence, mergers, acquisitions and takeovers will only increase. Yet we haven’t seen much of this activity despite a raging bull market in the metals.

Exciting Times for Gold Bugs as the Eurocrats Dither / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold prices push higher as once again the ineptitude of our political masters fails to deliver. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy had scheduled yet another problem solving high level meeting, out of which their followers expected a stroke of economic genius. Instead the two leaders agreed to try for closer economic integration within the euro zone. A result that adds up to sweet nothing.
