Will Gold and Silver Go Up Along with the General Stock Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe yellow metal, money for more than three millennia, has a close relationship to other forms of money. Some argue that it isn’t gold that has risen in value in the last decade, as much that fiat currencies have lost value against gold. Ever since gold began its spectacular rise a decade ago, the U.S. dollar has lost over 80% of its purchasing power. The other currencies have not fared much better. The euro and the Japanese yen have lost over 70%. Gold is the only form of money that governments cannot create out of thin air which is why the supply of fiat currencies is expanding exponentially faster than gold supplies, which increase by about only 3% per year.

Unconventional Oil Supply / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEach year a small portion of the world’s finite oil supply is drained.  And over time this annual draw has grown larger in a world that seems to be getting smaller.  As global commerce gains fluidity, the demand for this hydrocarbon appears to be insatiable.

Transportation is of course by far the largest consumer of oil, responsible for about 60% of global demand.  Everything we own and everything available to us to buy had to get from where it was made to the point of sale.  And it is oil that fuels this transportation.

Argentina Rule Change Casts a Dark Shadow Over the Gold Mining Industry / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

The re-elected President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, wants export revenues from mining projects to be repatriated and converted to Argentine currency prior to their distribution.

This rule change by the Argentinian government renders this country less attractive than it use to be to inward investors. It also serves as a reminder as to the myriad of risks involved in any mining operation. This one comes under the heading of Geo-political risk, as the re-elected government seeks to stem the flow of capital out of the country. Having this cash repatriated also gives the government the opportunity, further down the line, to introduce capital controls which would result in the cash having to be re-invested in Argentina.

Gimmick Car Fuels: Biofuels And Hydrogen Are Back / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot for long, of course.
Biofuels as a gimmick alternative to oil-fuelled cars wax and wane with oil prices. At times of specially high stress, that is high or fast-rising oil prices even hydrogen cars will be dredged out of the timewarp closet, to join today's real favourite - electric cars. Gimmick fuels and the cars which go with them are totally linked to the vagaries of oil prices because they all need oil to be manufactured: their media exposure soars when oil prices are high, then wanes with oil price lows, but everybody (sane) knows the simple fact: these are time wasting and money wasting gimmicks, to which we can add - with H2 Cars - they are outright lethal hydrogen bombs on wheels making Osama bin Laden totally surplus !

Are Gold & Silver Investing Safe-Havens Again? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Over the past month, gold and silver have remained in a trading range.  Gold had difficulties breaking through $1,700, while silver lost momentum as it rose near $33.  However, recent developments such as Greece deadlocks and US debt worries have once again returned gold and silver to their rightful safe-haven status.

Weakness in Crude Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Based on my intraday pattern work, nearby NYMEX Crude Oil should roll over again and press towards 90.10-89.80 next. Should such a scenario unfold, then I will be interested to see if oil closes beneath 90.55, which its 200-day EMA. That level was hurdled on Monday, but violated again on the downside today (perhaps).

Gold, Silver and Fraudulent Investor Traps / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe feverish positive sentiment has left the Gold & Silver market in the last two months. Raised margin requirements during falling prices alongside naked short ambushes in the COMEX, coupled with permitted asset damage from debt monetization conducted more in secrecy will always help to dampen enthusiasm. But with the billboard message on the European subway walls and boulevards and news magazines stating the obvious, that the European debt crisis has no solution, that Germany has no more checks to write in funding the bailouts, that Greece is set to default, that leaders in political spheres are opposed by bank leaders where the final decisions are made, the GOLD & SILVER PRICES ARE SET TO ZOOM. Only the dummies sold in the last round of ambushes and interrupted recoveries. The precious metals have suddenly awakened. The old defended range for the two metals was easily overrun as a splash of reality hit the market faces. A mad scramble is likely from here onto the end of year, as people realize that hyper-inflation is the solution on any massive bailout with clearer gigantic needs, and as people realize that a broad string of bank failures will drive gigantic flows into safer places since sovereign bonds will go from sacred to toxic. The powerful decline in September, down $200 in gold and down $10 in silver suddenly have presented a ripe easy recovery without resistance. A powerful reversal is near and coming. Many investors will rush back in, paying higher prices than where they unwisely sold. Many investors will rush in, seeing banks and government bonds as ugly options.
