Lease Rates Show Greater Silver Interest / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In December of 2010, we looked at silver lease rates to see how a recent spike might affect metals.  Then, it was out of the norm to see a spike in the lease rate, which often corresponded with a bid to borrow silver for the short-term.  Today, silver lease rates are starting to normalize above zero, which means that demand to borrow silver in the short-term is becoming a constant, and that investors are now starting to price in recent history into the future.

Impact of Chinese and Indians Climbing the Protein Ladder / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the next fifty years, as we add another 4.5 billion people to the world's population, global demand for food will increase almost 70% if population growth predictions are correct.

Already approximately 1 billion people go to bed hungry each night. Somewhere in the world someone starves to death every 3.6 seconds - most are children under the age of five.

Cornering the Silver Market is Impossible at Current Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilverDoctors write : Rumors of a corner of silver in process have been swirling overnight.

A cornering of silver by a billionaire is in process? Really? Here’s the definition of Cornering of the Market from Wikipedia, “In finance, to corner the market is to purchase enough of a particular stock, commodity, or other asset to allow the price to be manipulated, by analogy to the general business jargon where a company described as having "cornered the market" has a very high market share. The one attempting to corner a market hopes to gain control of enough of the supply of the commodity to be able to set the price for it.”

Metals Market Equations Are No Longer Simple / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWorld events continue to signal support for hard assets, but caution is still advised. News in the copper space is as much about consolidation of the players as the metal itself right now. The $7 bid by China Minmetals for Equinox Minerals (EQN-T, ASX) has offered some support for other mid tier copper assets. The Minmetals bid requires EQN to drop its own bid for Lundin Mining (LUN-T, LUNMF-Q) that had already squelched the planned merger of LUN with Inmet Mining (INM-T, IEMMF-Q). EQN had already merged with an Australian junior to acquire its Saudi copper mine development that is to begin out put late this year. To this has just been added a take-over bid by Capstone Mining (CS-T, CSFFF-Q) for Far West (FWM-T, FWMLF-Q) and its copper-iron project in Chile, with an assist from state owned Korea Resources Corp. Small and mid tier copper producers are focused on securing growth assets of the right scale as Asia gets more aggressive in ensuring supplies for its markets.

Silver Set to Soar as Fiat Paper Currencies Fold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: John_Browne

As a result of active "demonetization" efforts by the IMF and its member central banks, gold and silver have experienced the type of volatility that has given conservative investors reasons not to perceive the metals as dependable cash alternatives. Instead gold and silver have become known as the asset class to hold as a hedge against inflation.

Debunking the Anti Gold Investing Propaganda / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA meme is now circulating that gold is in a bubble and that it's time for the wise investor to sell. To me, that’s a ridiculous notion. Certainly a premature one.

It pays to remain as objective as you can be when analyzing any investment. People have a tendency to fall in love with an asset class, usually because it’s treated them so well. We saw that happen, most recently, with Internet stocks in the late ‘90s and houses up to 2007. Investment bubbles are driven primarily by emotion, although there's always some rationale for the emotion to latch on to. Perversely, when it comes to investing, reason is recruited mainly to provide cover for passion and preconception.

Bullish on Unconventional Crude Oil Investment Plays / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePain at the pump for consumers is windfall time for E&P companies. When the low-hanging fruit of old oil and gas fields is exhausted, companies are incentivized to move to new and different regions where the potential reward profile might justify the inherent risk of difficult or unexplored environs and potential political upheaval. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Pathfinder Asset Management Associate Portfolio Manager Taylor MacDonald tells investors where he's finding new ways to play growing energy demand.

Playing the Move in Natural Gas / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

A review of natural gas futures shows the chart pattern exploded above 4.20-4.25 resistance. The iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas (GAZ), however, has not followed the same path.

GAZ has stalled, perhaps owing to its premium price 3-4 weeks ago in its relationship to underlying natural gas prices. Meanwhile, natural gas prices have played catch-up, perhaps moving the GAZ-U.S. Natural Gas ETF (UNG) underlying natural gas price relationship more into line.

Silver has doubled in the past seven months alone.

Silver has continued to surge in all currencies and has surged to a new record nominal high of $46.25/oz (£27.85/oz and £31.54/oz) on growing rumours of a short squeeze involving a billionaire or state interest attempting to corner the silver market (see FT news story below).

Gold Tops $1,500 in Flight to Quality / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe New York Times reports Gold Tops $1,500 an Ounce in 'Flight to Quality'

The list of factors that have supported the price of precious metals in recent weeks is long. It includes worries about the sustainability of European debt levels — and whether countries like Greece will soon default; the threat of a possible downgrade of U.S. credit ratings amid an impasse over raising the debt limit and dealing with the budget deficit; the weaker dollar; rising inflation in many parts of the world and continued unrest in North Africa and the Middle East, which has pushed up oil prices.

Oil Services Stocks Correction Due? / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Tarsala writes: Oil services stocks are seeing downside earnings revisions and bearish options bets ahead of earnings, and could be in danger of losing their price uptrend, according to a Thomson Reuters technical signal.

The options positioning suggest there’s a lot less optimism for services versus drillers and refiners, and less hope they’ll have another blockbuster quarter.

Gold Inflation Hedge? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Ian R. Campbell writes: A recent article asks (and I think answers) the question “Is Gold Really An Inflation Hedge?” - reading time 3 minutes.  The article includes charts comparing the price of physical gold with year/year U.S. inflation, with University of Michigan U.S. inflation expectations, and with the U.S. Federal Reserve Balance Sheet.  The article concludes that the evidence shows the gold price increase of the past 11 years (gold breached U.S.$1,500 this morning for the first time, trading at just under U.S.$1,505 as I write this at 7:00 a.m. ET) can’t be attributed solely to inflation, and says “It is key to understand that the exposure you obtain from buying/selling gold is not exclusively linked to the inflation rate”, and that “the fundamental reason gold has value is that it is an alternative to paper currency, and what makes gold attractive to hold vs. a paper currency is what it yields on a real basis”.
