Crude Oil Demand to Continue Accelerating for Decades - Energy Sector Trends Analysis / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile we did not see $100 a barrel crude oil in the futures market last month we remain bullish on the energy sector. One of the more interesting charts we happened across last month was from the Oil Drum. It plots global crude oil and natural gas liquid production versus time. (See chart at right)

Coal and Commodities Bull Markets for Several More Years / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Emanuel_Balarie

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy coal (and other commodities) should be in your stocking this year ...and the next year ... and the year after that!

For several years now, commodities have garnered attention because of their prolific appreciation. The price of oil has climbed by over $80/barrel during this first stage of this bull market, gold prices have more than tripled in price, and soybeans, corn, wheat and coal have suddenly become part of the investor's vocabulary.  At the same time, however, it seems that while investors are now more familiar with commodities (in the general sense), they are still apprehensive about finally taking the steps to add commodities to their investment portfolios.

Euro Gold Breakout Above Resistance Analysis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite Washington and the Fed working fast and furiously to destroy international confidence in the US dollar, it still remains the currency of choice for pricing many international markets. Among these is gold. Regardless of where this metal is mined, it is almost always priced and sold in US dollars.

If you are an American investor, this is great. We have always thought of gold as denominated in dollars and it is hard to imagine any other way of thinking about it. But if you live outside the States, the gold price is a lot more relevant as quoted in your own local currency. Your mind is wired to think in local-currency terms and various investment options are only comparable within this life-long mental framework.

Crude Oil Price Manipulated In advance of Sampling Date for Producer Price Index? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday I telephoned the good folks at the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington, D.C. I phoned to find out a little bit more about how one of the key inputs – CRUDE OIL - in PPI [Producer Price Index] is determined each and every month. 

Here's the nuts of what I was told: Crude oil price data inputs for the PPI are measured from sources of the subject month on the Tuesday of the week that contains the 13 th day.”

Gold Prices Plunging Despite Soaring Inflation (PPI) / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

How ironic that on a day that exposed outsized inflation data (PPI), gold prices are plunging...and so are the precious metal mining stocks. To put it simply and concisely, the three-month pattern carved out by the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (AMEX: GDX) has taken the form of a large top. The Fan Lines (light green on the chart) represent prior support lines that have been violated, after which the price structure rallies to test their extension prior to turning lower again.

Invest in the Agricultural Commodites Boom as Food Inflation Soars / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf the Fed were smart, it would have slashed interest rates to the bone this week, instead of dilly-dallying around. That way, everyone would know exactly where the economy stands (on the edge of a cliff) and what the Fed was doing about it.

But that's not how things work. Instead, the high priests of finance like to "tinker" with the economy, and in my opinion, they do a lousy job of it. In the end, the Fed almost always ends up making matters worse.

By: Adrian_Ash

Subprime Mortgage Bailout Plan's Silver Lining / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes:Last week, President Bush and Treasury Secretary Paulson rolled out their mortgage bailout plan. And most investors have heard enough to know they don't like it.

Just three of the reasons why ...

#1. Moral hazard is gone. This plan rewards speculation of the worst kind. Investors and homeowners alike have learned that the government will provide golden parachutes if they take the most reckless, irresponsible course imaginable.

Crude Oil Back to Fundementals as Pentagon Vetoes US Strike against Iran / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNearly two years ago, on January 10th, 2006, Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad raised the stakes in a battle of wits between Tehran and the Bush administration, ordering the removal of UN seals on centrifuges to enrich uranium, a process which can make atomic reactor fuel or weapons-grade material. “We are not going to yield to pressure to abandon our rights, and we have the necessary tools to protect ourselves,” Ahmadinejad told the Qatari foreign minister.

Ahmadinejad's daring move quickly set off a “war of words” with US President George Bush and vice-president Dick Cheney, which in turn, built-up an Iranian “war premium” of roughly $12 per barrel into the price of crude oil. On January 19, 2006, Cheney warned, “Whether or not there would be a spike in the price of oil, if in fact there is some kind of a crisis with Iran is entirely possible. But I think the consequences of that would be less significant than the consequences of having Mahmoud Ahmadinejad armed with nuclear weapons,” Cheney told CNBC.

Gold and Silver Gearing Up for a Big Move / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Something tells me there is a big surprise ahead. How big, which way and when, well that's what makes life interesting.

GOLD : LONG TERM - The long term usually changes very slowly so there is no use posting a long term chart each week. From the long term stand point nothing has changed from last week, or the week before. To summarize, the long term P&F chart is still bullish. Gold price is still well above its positive sloping moving average line. The long term momentum indicator is also still in its positive zone but giving us some warnings of the under performance of the strength in recent price action. All in all, the long term is still rated as BULLISH .
