Agri-Food's Correct as Silver Stays in Fantasy Debt Fueled Bubble Land / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI said, "Scotty, Beam me up." However, the message was apparently garbled, and Scotty apparently beamed me back instead. Since it seems so much like 2008, it must be Scotty's fault. Or, is it possible that Bernanke's Lap Dogs are again distorting asset prices? Surely they must have learned something from making the same mistake over and over. Even a cat learns faster.

Gasoline: No Cure For High Prices Like High Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude oil market has been on a wild roller coaster ride ever since riots started escalating in Egypt and Libya. The latest Libyan supply disruptions sent WTI futures surging above $103 a barrel in New York on Thursday, Feb. 24, while Brent oil in Europe was also closing in on $120 a barrel.

However, both oil markers retreated mostly due to traders scrambling to reposition when NYMEX and ICE boosted margin requirements on oil futures as crude traded above $100 a barrel.

Crude Oil, Natural Gas and Geopolitics / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: John_Hampson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRevolt in Libya and fear of the spread of revolt to Saudi Arabia and Algeria - all oil producers - helped push oil prices higher last week. Libya shut down what amounts to roughly 1% of the world's supply. Saudi Arabia responded by increasing supply and the IEA discussed releasing some of the emergency stockpiles. These emergency stockpiles amount to 1.6 billion barrels, or around 4 million barrels a day for a year. Given that Libya produces around 1.6m barrels a day and Algeria 1.3m barrels, the IEA could cover the eventuality of both losing all their supply for up to a year, which is clearly an outside scenario. But, if an uprising gathers pace in Saudi Arabia and disrupts its pumping of 10% of world supply, then the supply gap is unlikely to be filled. For now, this also represents an outside scenario, as the Saudi Government has taken proactive steps to placate its people.

Silver Market Hit Hard With Bear Raid / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jesse

Friday I said: "Today was the option expiration on the Comex, and those options which are 'in the money' and have not been settled for cash are now converted to March futures positions.

Depending on the size and distribution of those conversions we may see some 'action' in the front month because they are sometimes notoriously weak hands and will receive at least one 'gut check.'"

The Global Flight into Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

The world is awash in dollars and that is being reflected in the USDX, which are six major currencies versus the dollar. The loss of value is being loudly trumpeted as the IMF says a replacement must be found. This is the same IMF that has been foisting non-gold backed SDRs on us since 1969. Every time they have tried this it has been a failure. We can give the Illuminists an ‘A’ for effort, but what they do not get is that the professionals and investors see right through it. Another batch of fiat currency is not going to solve the world’s currency crisis, which can only be saved by gold backing. Needless to say, the mainstream media will never talk about this in realistic terms, because the elitists control them. The denigration of currencies versus gold and silver are advancing apace, as the elitists day after day try to suppress gold and silver prices.

Crude Oil Unique Price Formation, Should You Buy Here? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis has been a turbulent week on the geopolitical front, triggering waves in the stock market and sending the price of crude oil through the roof. While the stock market corrects itself (as we anticipated), the price of crude oil seems to be creeping ever higher, putting upward pressure on the price of fuel and energy. Worse still is the serious effect this could have on the economic recovery that everyone has been banking on.

Gold Moving Closer To All-time High / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: LiveCharts

Gold prices have slipped a bit to close out the week, but an ounce of gold is holding steady over $1,400 as a run toward late December’s all-time intraday trading high of $1,431.50 appears inevitable in the coming weeks.

Continued political unrest in Libya and Bahrain, combined with the recent overthrow of 30-year Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, has driven speculators toward commodities.

Mideast Mayhem to Drive Gold Price Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Casimir Capital Managing Director Wayne Atwell sees it, further political unrest in the Middle East could push gold higher, while inflation risk and sovereign debt issues in Europe are longer-term price catalysts. He also shares a few up-and-coming gold juniors that Casimir covers in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report.

The Gold Report: In a recent interview with Bloomberg you said, "Gold's gotten stronger because it's no longer weak." Can you explain that concept to our readers?

Gold Stocks Long-Term Trend Still Up, Despite Price Declines / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic and social developments across the globe are significantly affecting the capital market moves in the present scenario. Global markets, still fragile, could be tilted off course if instability in the Middle East spreads. Markets largely ignored the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, two countries that are basically not that significant on the global economic scheme of things. They don’t owe much money to western banks, nor do they export large quantities of commodities, such as oil. But markets certainly took notice this week of the violent upheaval in Libya.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJunior resource stocks are fickle little things.  And most investors who dabble in this realm are fully aware of their capricious nature.  One of the best ways to describe owning these stocks can be summed up by one of the most famous lines in literary history, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”

Why is the Dollar Falling in Gold and Currency Terms? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the last few days a fairly new market perception has been creeping in. The expectation that Eurozone interest rates are going to start rising ahead of U.S. interest rates is taking hold. But while the original intention in Europe was to raise them as soon as it was seen that the recovery was really taking hold, it is becoming apparent that inflation may well beat them to it. As energy and food inflation are here to stay the reason rates will rise now is to tackle inflation.

Gold Adds 1% But Silver Unwinds Week-on-Week Jump as Oil Price Hit by Margin Hike / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

BOTH GOLD and physical silver prices failed to hold onto a sharp overnight bounce in London trade on Friday, trading below $1404 and $33 respectively per ounce as volatility in crude oil remained at record levels but world stock markets rose for the first day in six.

The US Dollar snapped its 7-day losing streak, bouncing against the Euro, Sterling and Yen and leaving gold prices for non-Dollar investors slightly higher again.

Crude Oil, Natural Gas and AMEX Oil Index Stocks Analysis / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: David_Petch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe daily chart of oil is shown below, with oil shooting well above all three Bollinger bands, suggestive that oil will consolidate for at least 7-10 days before trending higher. Normally, when prices run well above upper Bollinger bands, a consolidation is required, or a pullback is in order. Given the fact that all three lower Bollinger bands are positioned in close proximity to each other and the lower 55 MA Bollinger band curled lower, oil prices are highly likely to remain above $90/barrel and eventually rise above $100/barrel before summer's end. Full stochastics 1, 2 and 3 are shown below in order of descent, with the %K beneath the %D in all three instances.

Global Food Crisis, Not Only Speculation / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE BIG PICTURE - Recent massive food commodity price rises, with occasional day trade plunges on the back of market rumours, price chart gazing or analysts' theories – followed by a return to the growth trend - is taken by many as a key proof of the Ponzi scheme new economy. The food commodity sell-off through February 21-23, 2011 is a typical example, explained by market watchers as due to speculation by traders that riots in North Africa and the Middle East could cut government spending and curb food demand from the Arab world, which buys about 33 percent of global shipments.

Timber Investing: The Inflation Hedge That Pays Off in Every Type of Market / Commodities / Resources Investing

But one of the best inflationary hedges of the 20th century is often forgotten - even though it's likely to be just as effective this time around.

We are right now looking at the prospect of significant and sustained instability in a region that's home to two-thirds of the world's known crude oil reserves.
