Good Economic News is Bad for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE WHOLESALE MARKET gold price fell back below $1600 an ounce during Tuesday morning's London trading, hitting its lowest level for nearly two-weeks, while European stock markets also traded lower, as analysts speculated on the prospects for a third round of quantitative easing (QE3) from the Federal Reserve following the release of positive US economic data.

"The market is disappointed that [gold] was not able to revisit the July high of $1633," says the latest technical analysis note from bullion bank Scotia Mocatta.

Gold and the Middle East Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe year 2012 has been relatively peaceful compared with the past 10 years. The lack of military aggression on the part of the U.S. has led many to believe that the America's days of military adventures are over. But as we'll see here, 2012 is simply a temporary respite in a longer-term "theater" of war that has only just passed the opening act.

The past decade has indeed been one of near constant strife and turmoil. Starting with 9/11 and the U.S.-led NATO invasion of Afghanistan, and later Iraq, the 10 years between 2001 and 2011 were characterized by ceaseless warfare. The military invasions in the Middle East have been followed by civil and military uprisings in Egypt, North Africa and elsewhere in the region. By contrast, 2012 might be styled a "quiet" year for the Mideast. A withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq began in mid 2009 and formally ended in late 2011.

Why Stock Selection in Gold Mining is Paramount / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we alluded to last week, there is an overflowing amount of evidence that both the metals and the shares have bottomed. Price action, sentiment indicators and fundamentals more than confirm a market bottom. Does this mean the market is ready to zoom much higher? Not necessarily. The sector must contend with some overhead supply as well as repair technical damage that caused a loss of both short and long-term momentum.

Gold Mining Stocks Continue to Disappoint But Not For Long / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is an endless debate for investors interested in gold. Should they buy a direct play on the gold price, either gold bullion itself or even so-called paper gold with an ETF such as the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEArca: GLD)? Or should they invest into gold equities, particularly the larger, higher quality gold mining companies?

Which Way Will the Pendulum Swing for Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most fascinating aspects when watching a sporting event like the Olympics is the historical statistics highlighting the tremendous advances in athleticism over the years. In the spirit of the events this summer, BTN Research compared gold's advancement from the beginning of the games in Beijing to the London Olympics.

On the day of China's auspicious opening ceremonies on August 8, 2008, gold was $857.80 an ounce. By the time the world watched the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games, the precious metal had climbed to $1,617.90 an ounce. This represents a remarkable increase of 89 percent in four years.

Water, an Endangered Global Resource / Commodities / Water Sector

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur groundwater is being used up at record rates and claims to ownership are becoming increasingly contentious. It won't be long before the first water war begins.

There's a lot of water on the planet we inhabit - an estimated 326 million trillion gallons or 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters.

That makes it hard to believe that there are somewhere between 780 million to one billion people without basic and reliable water supplies and that more than two billion people lack the requirements for basic sanitation.

By: Clif_Droke

GOLD: Lover or Fighter? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

If there is one lesson that investors have learned in recent years, it is don’t fight central banks. The rally seen in equities since the lows of 2009 is now considered one of the most hated rallies in history. Analysts and pundits can debate macroeconomic conditions until blue in the face, but when central banks inject trillions of dollars into the financial system, the general trend tends to be higher. Precious metals have also benefited from monetary easing programs, but they are now finding out how hard it is to fight central banks.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark writes: Everything is falling in place for a big gold stock rally...

So far this year, it's been tough to make money owning gold stocks. Every rally has been weak. Every subsequent decline has been steep. The big gold stock fund, GDX, for example is down 25% over the last 12 months.

This decline has made gold stocks very cheap... and ready to rally. Let me show you what I mean...
