Alternative Energy Investments Are Still at Value Levels / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlternative energy is a catchall axiom referring to any source of power generation and use that can replace fossil fuels, including nuclear, solar, wind and geothermal. Humankind will by necessity adopt renewable energy sources but, like all disruptive ideas, acceptance is preceded by doubt and hesitation, resolution of which comes only after systemic shocks like shortages and rising prices. Jacob Securities Research Director John McIlveen staked out this new economic sector to become one of the first North American analysts to specialize in renewable energy stocks. He believes these industries— particularly geothermal, solar and wind—could present unusual publicly traded opportunities for investors seeking truly unique diversification and significant capital appreciation. John spoke with The Energy Report in this exclusive interview to explain his focus and offer several ideas to round out growth-oriented portfolios.

By: Frank_Holmes

Why Are Gold and Silver Breaking Out? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have yet to complete two months of 2011 and so far we have already seen several attempted revolutions in Middle Eastern countries, with so far two of them successful. All of them have been unexpected and have caught the world by surprise. We are on the brink of the next successful revolution [Libya] disrupting the oil market and taking prices so high that we are likely to see them negatively impact growth in the developed world.

Gold, Central Banking, Fecks, Lies and Video Tape / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe purpose of this article – it’s an attempt to bring some transparency to what’s really happening in the precious metals complex by underscoring the words and actions of players in the Central Banking community.  Attention is drawn to the fact that these elitists lie as a matter of policy but are prone to making simple mistakes like all humans do.  Specifically, light is shone on the degree to which these same elitists will go to keep their surreptitious market activities ‘secret’ and their irredeemable fiat currencies viable.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD and physical silver whipped sharply in London trade on Tuesday, falling hard only to rally as New Zealand's second-biggest city Christchurch was struck by an earthquake and Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi's defiant appearance on state TV led to accusations of "genocide" and "the government killing its people" by his own diplomats in the Unitd States.

Gold Fever in China Sparks Phenomenon Global Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Inflation risk is driving "explosive" buying of physical gold in China, putting the country on a path to becoming the world's number one gold consumer and driving demand for the yellow metal to a 10-year high.

Chinese demand for gold bars and coins reached 180 tons in 2010, up a whopping 70% from 2009, Albert Cheng, the World Gold Council's managing director for the Far East, said at a news conference last Thursday.

Silver Fractal Analysis Suggests May-June Target of $52-$56 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldRunner

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDollar Inflation remains the driver of the pricing environment for almost everything denominated in U.S. Dollars as long as the Fed continues to monetize debt.  The debt monetization creates Dollar Inflation that results in Dollar Devaluation.  As the Fed ramps up the QE II that they have announced will end in June, I expect Gold, Silver, and the PM stocks to aggressively rise.

Libya Crisis and Crude Oil Stock Portfolio Positions / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany of you may be watching the reports of the revolt in Libya on TV and listening to breathless commentators. Clearly, the situation in the Middle East is changing. But let's balance the TV excitement about oil and Libya with logic and data.

First, whatever government results from the revolts in oil producing countries, they need to sell their oil to support their regimes as much as the rest of the world needs to buy their oil. Therefore, looking past short-term supply disruption concerns, oil wells will not be shut down long-term and oil will continue to flow.

Silver Buoyed by Growing Industrial Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Stall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIrrespective of the concerns over financial tightening, talks of a gold bubble and economical weakness, gold marked its tenth straight annual gain in 2010. Not only gold, other members of the precious metal group such as silver and platinum were also up last year. At this juncture, last year’s bull run appears to be running out of steam. However, both technicals and fundamentals indicate improved investment options in precious metals, particularly silver, if you have a long-term investment horizon.

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD broke above $1400 per ounce and the silver price jumped above $33.50 in London trade on Monday, extending last week's strong gains on what a growing number of market professionals call "safe haven buying" amid fresh turmoil in the Middle East.

"A particularly ominous sign for the Dollar is that there's been no safe-haven demand for the [US currency]," says Steven Barrow, chief forex strategist at Standard Bank in London.

Gold and Silver Prices Strengthen as the US Dollar Weakens / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe kick off with a quick look at the chart for gold and as we can see both the 50dma and the 200dma are moving up nicely in support of gold prices. The recent correction could have taken gold to have tea with the 200dma, however, strong buying came in and pushed the price through resistance in preparation for the next leg up. The technical indicators, the RSI and the STO, are on the high side suggesting that a breather could be on the cards, but don't count on it, indicators can remain distant from the ‘norm’ for extended periods of time.

Clean Energy: Coconuts vs. Swallows of Coal and Natural Gas / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Willoughby writes: There’s a memorable part in the 1970s movie Monty Python & the Holy Grail where King Arthur argues with a guard on a castle wall about whether a swallow could have carried a coconut to England, the punch line being is that an African or European swallow?

Fact checking about birds aside, the point of the story is if you don’t have the ability to lift a coconut you need to increase capacity by adding more swallows, that or find yourself an African swallow.

Diverging Crude Oil Prices WTI $12 Cheaper than Brent, Anybody Got A Big Rig? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Wednesday, Feb. 16 Israel said Iran is sending two warships into the Suez Canal on way to Syria, and that the action is considered a “provocation.” Due to the long history of bad blood between Israel and Iran, this very possible scenario was enough to even send the bear-infested NYMEX crude oil futures volume surging midday.

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) on Nymex rose to just below $85, while Brent crude on the ICE futures exchange spiked $2.17 higher to $103.81 a barrel--a 29-month high--widening the WTI-Brent spread to a new record near $19.

Perhaps there is a good answer. The taxpaying public certainly deserves to know. The CFTC says they have looked into this, but the detailed results of their findings remain less than forthcoming.
