Libya Crisis Advice From the Guy "Big Oil" Calls for Answers / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKent Moors, Ph.D. writes: Given the events that we've seen in Egypt and elsewhere in recent weeks - as well as the developments we've seen in Libya in recent days - there's only one conclusion to reach.

We are right now looking at the prospect of significant and sustained instability in a region that's home to two-thirds of the world's known crude oil reserves.

Food Price Inflation Calculator / Commodities / Inflation

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark Thornton of the Mises Institute writes, "The price of everything seems to have skyrocketed. Only housing, the dollar and inflation-adjusted income are negative."

I immediately interrupt to wittily say, "Well, housing is going down because nobody wants to buy a still-over-priced-yet-even-lower-quality house that now needs painting, a new water heater, some leaky things fixed and a new roof, especially now that inflation-adjusted incomes are negative!"

What You Need to Know About Buying Silver Today / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeff_Clark

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's hard to believe that less than three years ago, silver was $8.80 an ounce. Since then it has nearly quadrupled in value (up 385%) and more than doubled in the last 12 months alone.

That's great for those who already own the metal - but is it too late for the rest of us to get in?

WTI and Brent Disparity Means Higher Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWest Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil is trading at a significant discount to Brent crude, the latter of which is used to price two-thirds of globally traded crude oil. WTI, on the other hand, is the commodity underlying Nymex futures contracts and has, more often than not, traded slightly above Brent. Although the current Brent/WTI divergence is widening, disruptions in equilibrium don't tend to last. "True energy demand," says Raymond James Director of Energy Research Marshall Adkins, "will ultimately bring WTI in line with global oil prices." Marshall reveals how equity investors can profit from oil service providers in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report.

Clean Energy Commodities: The Answer To Middle Eastern Oil / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany of the great declines in the stock market over the past 30 years have been related to oil (United States Oil (USO)). This week we have seen the major indices plummet on geopolitical chaos throughout North Africa, especially the large oil-producing Libya, as investors returned to gold (SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)), silver (iShares Silver Trust (SLV)), and oil. As the market reached record overbought territory, any excuse could begin a significant pullback in equities (SPDR S&P 500 (SPY)).

Gold Up, Silver Down as Soaring Oil & Bond-Market Rates Snub Geithner's "No Stagflation" Claim / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD rose further in London trade Thursday morning, hitting new 2011 highs for Dollar investors as Brent crude oil jumped to $119 per barrel and a raft of economic analysis warned of "stagflation" ahead for the global economy.

Silver prices ticked lower together with platinum and palladium – which also find the bulk of their demand from industry, rather than investment or jewelry – as well as base metals.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe inflation forecast for 2011 warned that the key risks to the forecast were all to the upside and specifically if Crude oil were to go super nova during 2011, subsequent events starting in Tunisia, magnifying in Egypt and now exploding in Libya have sent crude oil prices soaring into the stratosphere as speculators pile into a panic sparked trend, where Brent Crude has now spiked higher to $115 on the spot market, up $40 from the recent trading range of $75 and leaving the US WTI Crude presently lagging behind at $101.

Gold and Silver Prices, Getting to Know Crisis Premiums / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

There’s a term gold and silver investors like to use to describe changes in premiums based solely on changes in the markets and demand for physical metals: the crisis premium.

The crisis premium was most recently encountered at the turn of the new millennium when hundreds of thousands of people stashed record collections of gold and silver to protect against what was supposed to be the worst electronic catastrophe ever.  Bank balances were supposed to go to zero, and computers were to become virtually worthless when the date rolled over to 01/01/00.  Of course, that never happened, no one died, and the sun still rose the next morning.

QE2, The Road To A Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat an incredible few weeks with global uprisings! It is not all too surprising that social eruptions over food prices come from the Arab world, since they spend up to 75% to 80% of income on food for basic needs. What proof that the global economy is not a closed system! The QE and QE2 initiatives have spread like a powerful virus, leading to global commodity prices heading upward and quickly. Even cotton is up 170% in price. The USFed has suffered even more credibility blows, calling the global food price inflation unrelated to its QE2 policy. It is obviously connected. What we have is the Western Big Banks protected from fraud prosecution, redeemed for their broken toxic balance sheets at government expense, leading to a global price tag in the form of foodstuffs and commodities.

Powerful Spike in Crude Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Crude oil's upside pivot reversal off of last week's low at $83.85 has morphed into a powerful spike that has climbed above the prior high of $92.84 to a new, post-Dec 2008 high at $99.94 today.

The explosive upmove has blown through key resistance at $90.15 -- the 50% resistance plateau of the huge $114.87/bbl bear market from July 2007 to Dec 2008. It has hurdled key multi-week resistance at $92.30/90 into what looks like a vicious new upleg that could be heading for a confrontation with the upper channel resistance line, now up near $110.50 to $113.00.

Gold $2,300, Silver $150 and Looming Stock Market Crash / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jason_Hamlin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNotes from the Cambridge House Silver Summit - Cambridge House puts on some of the best commodity-focused investment conferences in the industry and this year was no different. The February show in Phoenix, Arizona included presentations from industry heavyweights such as Ted Butler, Bill Murphy, Jay Taylor, Mickey Fulp, John Kaiser and others. Over 40 booths were filled with up-and-coming junior resource miners, including one of my favorite silver plays, Aurcana Corporation (CVE: AUN or AUNFF). Aurcana stock advanced as much as 19% today, the first trading session following the conference. Aurcana just began construction on their Shafter mine in Texas, which is estimated to be one of the top ten largest silver mines in the world. In addition the company is already producing one million ounces from its La Negra mine in Mexico and is projecting a jump to 5 million ounces per year once Shafter comes online.

Solar Power Market Emerging as a Sleeper in 2011 / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Companies that manufacture solar power equipment had a great year in 2010 thanks to generous government subsidies. While 2011 may turn out to be a year of transition, most solar companies should do well and the long-term prospects for the industry are bright indeed.

Solar power installations worldwide increased 120% in 2010 with 16 gigawatts added, up from 7 gigawatts added in 2009. That brought total capacity to 40 gigawatts, still just 0.2% of the world's electricity generation in 2010. That leaves a lot of room for growth.
