No Easy Fix for Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis month, as unleaded gasoline prices increased for 17 consecutive days (to a national average of $3.647 per gallon - up 11% thus far this year) and West Texas Intermediate crude joined Brent crude in breaking through a $100 per barrel level, energy prices emerged as a full blown political issue. While President Obama conveniently claimed that rising prices were the consequence of an improving economy (they're not, and it isn't) Republican fingers began to point sanctimoniously at current drilling policies. And while none of the accusers had any idea why prices were actually going up, the award for the most dangerous 'solution' must go to Bill O'Reilly at Fox News. The master of the "No Spin Zone" announced that high pump prices could be permanently brought down by a presidential order to restrict exports of refined gasoline. Not only does Mr. O'Reilly's idea demonstrate contempt for the U.S. Constitution but it also displays a thorough lack of economic understanding.

More Upside for SLW & GLD / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

condense the price action, the pattern that emerges off of last April's peak at 47.60 argues strongly that a complex intermediate-term correction ended at the Oct 4 low of 25.84, a decline of 46%. That was followed by a powerful new up-leg that within the past week has hurdled key resistance at 37.35/40.

Is 2012 the Next 1897? Juniors Prepare for Yukon Gold Rush / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChris Devauld writes: When it comes to gold mining, the Yukon needs little introduction. The westernmost territory’s frigid climate and unforgiving terrain hasn’t deterred prospectors, past and present. The end of the 19th century saw gold miners rush in on mere rumours of the yellow metal, which eventually lead to the renowned Klondike Gold Rush in 1897. Now, it appears, history is repeating as the high price of gold drives ambitious juniors back into the rush for riches.

Small Cap Gold Stocks Successfully Retest 2010 Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen one speaks of gold stocks they should be more specific as the sector is diverse. The term Gold stocks usually refers to the large unhedged producers. Indices such as the HUI or GDX track these stocks and are a proxy for the gold stock universe. However, most companies in the sector are much smaller. We hear the term “juniors” so often and that is what makes it inconsistent. Juniors are typically micro-cap exploration companies. Yet, GDXJ the junior ETF is comprised of companies with market caps in the $500 Million to $1 Billion range. There is nothing junior about that. We notice there is a gap in terms of terminology. If Juniors are sub- $100 Million, and large caps are over $1 Billion, then what do you call those that fit the gap?

Gold and Silver Stocks Poised to Recover in 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOpportunities abound across the spectrum of precious metal equities, which remain undervalued as bullion prices continue their upward trends. That's the word according to Charles Oliver and Jamie Horvat, both senior portfolio managers at Sprott Asset Management. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Oliver and Horvat express cautious optimism about the prospects for gold stocks in 2012.

The Gold Report: When we talked in the wake of the debt ceiling crisis last fall, Charles, you expected volatility to be good for gold and forecast a continuing long-term bull market for precious metals. These days, the scary stories pertain to the European Union (EU). Will negative headlines continue to play a role in the price of gold and silver?

Will Another Round of LTRO Send Gold and Silver Higher? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Last week, gold and silver finished at their highest levels all year. Gold settled at $1,776.40, while silver surged 6.4 percent to close at $35.34. The recent rise in precious metals has been long overdue, but the dollar’s decline against the euro certainly contributed to the move.

Natural Gas Bullish Base / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Natural gas could not sustain last week's retest of the prior high at 14.74 in the ProShares Ultra DJ UBS Natural Gas ETF (BOIL) and has looped down towards strong support between 13.00 and 12.50.

Nonetheless, my intermediate-term work argues that all of the action since early January represents a developing, powerful base formation in the aftermath of the vicious multi-year bear market.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have constantly advocated investments in uranium mining(URA), particularly in friendly jurisdictions such as North America. This support of the nuclear sector (NLR) has often been in the face of formidable attacks by naysayers, using every weapon in their arsenal to denigrate proponents of atomic energy.

Will Gold Miners Finally Get Some Respect? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Eric_McWhinnie

It has been a long and hard road for gold miners. Despite another record performance for gold last year, miner stocks lagged the physical precious metal. Gold prices finished 2011 at $1,566.80 per ounce, representing a 9.3 percent annual increase. However, the Market Vectors Gold Miners Index fell 16.3 percent, and the Junior Gold Miners Index plummeted 38 percent. Although miners have underperformed bullion, recent earnings may finally cause a shift in sentiment and share prices.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDo I or Don't I?

I decided not to bother, what you ask? writing more of the same about the US stock markets, It don't need a genius to write that the US stock markets are in a coma and stuck in the ICU room waiting to come back into the real world. Although nothing has really changed from the current ideas I am reluctant to post more of the same stuff when nothing really has happened.

Inflation Means Less Cluck for Your Buck / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

An important trend for many years has been the rising preference of consumers for chicken. Apparently those boneless, skinless, tasteless, chicken breasts are quite popular. In the U.S., production of broilers, table chicken, exceeds by ~50% the production of either pork or beef, when measured by weight. And those "clucks" are now costing more bucks.
