The Truth About $6 Gas, $200 Crude Oil, the Quest for Energy Independence / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: No one needs to tell the average American about the impact of oil and gas prices. If they don't feel it in their wallets every day, they hear about it on the news every night.

But surprisingly, amid all the rhetoric, there have been no real answers to some of the key questions driving the energy debate... until now.

Is Gold hustling for a move? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold investors have had to endure quite a lot in the last six months. Not only has the gold price barely moved from six months ago, but it has endured an up, down, up, down chopping motion during this period of volatility. Future volatility in the gold price was something that some investors were calling for at the beginning of 2011, and volatility we got. During the last six months, this most psychological of markets, has endured all sorts of emotional squeezes, take downs and Buffett’s now regular wise cracks.

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJan Skoyles looks at Gordon Brown’s reasons for selling half of Britain’s gold over ten years ago and asks have we reached the top of the gold market thanks to George Osborne’s rediscovered interest in our gold investments?

Last week George Osborne, never one to miss a swipe at the opposition, made the effort to remind everyone of Gordon Brown’s Bottom.

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf oil prices don’t crash down to $67 within the next two months, that means for sure the evil one-eyed-drooling-spirit of Peak Oil, which everyone has been studiously trying to ignore for so long, has finally arrived.

Eye on Crude Oil and Natural Gas / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Downward momentum may be becoming exhausted in natural gas and its related ETFS -- US Natural Gas Fund (UNG) and ProShares Ultra DJ UBS Natural Gas ETF (BOIL).

Meanwhile, oil prices and the US Oil Fund ETF (USO) have sold off hard but not enough to damage the overall bullish chart pattern.

Will Monetary Policy and Inflation Continue to Support Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Earlier this week, gold and silver prices jumped after Ben Bernanke delivered a speech that sparked more quantitative easing speculation. However, both precious metals have since given up gains as investors continue to employ a “buy the dip, sell the rip” trading mentality. According to CPM Group, a commodities research and investment company, this is a trend that is likely to continue, but gold prices should receive support.

Solving The Global Energy Equation: Demand-Supply-Infrastructure / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLittle remarked by most analysts of the OECD-wide financial and debt rout in 2008-2011, world energy demand rebounded fast from its sharp plunge in 2008-2009. For the year 2010 the BP Statistical Review of 2011 painted a dramatic rebound story. World energy demand jumped by 5.6% led by coal demand growing over 7%, gas demand growing almost as much, and oil consumption by 3.1% as China moved to become the world's biggest single energy using nation. With no surprise, oil prices rose by 29% on average in 2010 from the year previous.

The Gold GroundHog Grind / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA very important objective change has taken place in the gold market. Its price is not moving above the resistance established in the 1600 to 1900 wide berth range. Its price is not moving below support in the same wide permitted range. When the gold price has approached the 1800 level recently, all manner of naked soldiers emerge with imaginery swords to whack the price down, to bring it under heel. The ruse has a high cost in the real world though, as the gold cartel has been forced to shed an enormous supply of gold as punishment for each naked short episode. The opponents to fraudulent controlled manipulated markets have emerged in force to respond. They fight from the East. They fight for a fair and equitable market.

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past two months we have seen all the focus from traders and investors be on the equities market. And rightly so and stocks run higher and higher.

Not Even Saudi Arabia Can Save Us From High Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: With oil prices soaring ever higher, Saudi Arabia stepped in last week and vowed to increase its production by 25% if necessary.

But while that assurance managed to siphon a few dollars off of oil futures, the reality is there's nothing Saudi Arabia - or anyone else, for that matter - can do about rising oil prices.

Lunacy and Confusion Over the Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Paul_Mladjenovic

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt drives me crazy when I read stuff by “economists” that is just plain wrong. Some of them are allegedly “MBAs” and “PhDs” but I think that their common sense is actually “DOA”.

Unfortunately, millions in the public arena see their interviews and blogs and they seem to automatically swallow their commentaries… hook, line and sinker. Let’s address some of the nonsense that these pundits are expressing.

Super-Cooled Natural Gas is Red Hot in International Markets / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNatural gas transforms into a liquid when it’s cooled to minus 260 degrees, enabling exporters to load the liquefied commodity onto specialized carriers for shipment to an import terminal.

LNG frees gas from the physical constraints of the global pipeline system. Before the widespread commercialization of LNG technology, natural gas located far offshore or in remote areas was considered stranded and had no economic value because producers couldn’t deliver output to consumers. LNG allows natural gas produced in Australia or offshore West Africa to high-demand markets such as Europe and Asia.

Bernanke's Problem with the Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his new lecture series, Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Ben Bernanke is going out of his way to discuss the "problems with the gold standard." To a central banker, the gold standard may be considered "competition," as their power would likely be greatly diminished if the U.S. were on a gold standard. The Fed, Bernanke argues, is the answer to the problems of the gold standard. We respectfully disagree. We disagree because the Fed ought to look at a different problem.

Forget Goldman Sachs; Only Fools Rush Into Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Is Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) playing us all for Muppets when they say stocks now present a generational buying opportunity?

The investment bank's 40-page bullish report, titled "The Long Good Buy: The Case for Equities," says to forget the huge run-up since 2009, forget the 25% rise in equities over the last five-and-a-half months, and forget bonds. This party is just getting started.

The Demise of Democracy Whilst Americans Cheer the Final Four / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarch seems to be leaving us like a lamb, although “March Madness” is still in effect, as college basketball marched into “The Final Four”

It is safe to predict that more Americans are paying attention to the action on the courts than the tired rhetoric and electoral mash-up where another final four bid for our attention, over-hyped in confrontational terms by political commentators who, like their sports counterparts, are just there to keep score:
