The Outlook for Agricultural Commodities / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: John_Hampson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSoft commodities have experienced some steep selling in the days since the Japan disaster, as speculative money has exited more 'risky' assets. But having enjoyed a 9-month stellar run, a pullback was overdue. Considering a broad softs ETF as a proxy, at the time of writing the complex is now nearing oversold levels:

Checking in on Relative Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Relative Gold is also known as the real price of Gold. Its essentially a comparison of Gold against various asset classes. Why is this important? There are two reasons. First, the real price of gold tends to lead leverage performance (e.g the HUI/Gold ratio). Second, the real price of Gold often provides hints of the future direction of the nominal price of Gold.

Food Is Fuel, Rising Food and Energy Costs Triggering Uprisings / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow is the bowl of Wheaties you ate this morning linked to a barrel of oil? In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Bob Moriarty, founder of 321energy.com, explains why the cost of producing food is directly correlated to fuel and picks which companies are poised to benefit from the rising value of potash.

The Energy Report: You wrote that "the uprising in Egypt began as a protest against the rapidly rising cost of food and energy." You went on to say that "it seems obvious that food and fuel are the same thing under a different cloak. Energy is food is population." Can you elaborate?

Natural Disasters and Political Uncertainty Cause Investors To Flee Paper to Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Last week the Japanese earthquake darkened the skies with an unexpected flock of black swans. On top of an act of nature, we have the persisting presence of eurozone debt fears, currency wars, the Middle East unrest, and the near bankruptcy of many states in America. The Wisconsin problem goes far beyond one local state; there are 46 Wisconsins that have accumulated billions of dollars of deficits. States have more than trillions of dollars in pension obligations which they will be unable to pay. Unions are unwilling to budge and have taken to the streets in protest. Sheer survival mandates humongous cuts in spending. This places US states between a rock and a hard place as they will have to incur serious job cuts with an already high unemployment rate.

Gold Drops as Japan's Nuclear Panic Hits Global Stock Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD fell 3% against a rising US Dollar on Tuesday morning, bouncing from a 4-week low of $1384 per ounce as world stock-market and commodity prices sank on news of radiation leaks from Japan's earthquake-hit nuclear plants.

Tokyo's Nikkei index closed Tuesday down at a 22-month closing low, slumping nearly 11% for the day as officials advised people within 30 miles of the Fukushima Daiichi facility to stay indoors.

Silver Manipulation Investigation May Spark Price Spike / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldSilver

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinally, after years of revelations by whistleblowers such as Ted Butler (ButlerResearch.com) and former metals trader Andrew McGuire, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission is conducting an investigation into possible criminal manipulation of the COMEX silver market. Specifically, McGuire has charged, and Butler has reported, that JP Morgan traders collude with other traders to instigate sell-offs in silver in order to depress prices, then buy up the metal in order to profit when prices recover.

Japanese Earthquake Impact on Rhodium Trading / Commodities / Rhodium

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRHODIUM TRADING THOUGHTS is about  timely and profitable trading of precious metals. We do not believe every turn in the market can be called. Our goal is that our recommendations should be profitable.  Profits are the goals, not trades. Do not expect all recommendations to be profitable. No system can achieve that lofty goal. Our goal is simply to state whether conditions for a metal are favorable or not. Buy signals are issued when appropriate. These signals are generally speaking for day they are issued. If price remains below signal price, buying can be done. Do Not Buy signals are given when market is over bought, and buying is unwise. Blue triangles indicate an over bought condition. These would not be good times to buy, so they are labeled Do Not Buy. Software is not showing complete legend, for some reason.

Gold and Silver Price, Beware What You Read! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has become a media tradition for moves in the gold price to be related to some political event or a civil war or a major tragedy such as the earthquake in Japan, when the events have a negligible effect on those markets. We find it unfortunate that this happens because it is misleading. For instance, this morning we were informed that the gold price had risen in the dollar, because of Japan's earthquake and tsunami. In fact it was almost entirely accounted for by the fall in the dollar against the euro. The gold price shows its market movements most clearly in the euro, not in the U.S. dollar. A glance across the euro gold price of the last week reinforces that statement, whereas the gold price in the dollar clearly shows the movements in the euro plus the moves of the U.S. dollar against the euro.

Why Gold and Silver Stocks Are Positioned to Soon Move Much Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldRunner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am at a loss for words (something that rarely happens to me) as to why so many in the Precious Metals Sector have become so negative at this juncture in this Historic Precious Metals Bull Market.  No doubt, many have “2008-itis”, thinking that the Dow is going to crash.  Of course, that has been the daily mantra since the top in 2000, hasn’t it?

The Rule of Gold After the Financial Collapse / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Hunt writes: In a secular world, the operative “Golden Rule” is “He Who Has the Gold Makes the Rules”. The condition of the global financial banking system is untenable. The aggregate amount of debt worldwide is anyone’s guess. The introduction of derivatives and counter claims pushes the chain of obligations into the unknown. All that is left is for central banks to create mountains of uninterrupted counterfeit money to roll over and delay the inevitable. The IMF chart of World Currency Reserve is a skyrocket line to oblivion. It does not reflect a healthy stockpile of treasure, but certainly manifests a new debt machine running to infinity.

Australian Gold Stocks Sector Dynamics / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAustralian gold stocks do not generally move up or down as a group in sequence.  This presents both opportunity and an additional challenge for investors in this sector.  To further complicate this dynamic the price of gold does not necessarily dictate the short term price movements in gold stocks.  At times gold leads the stocks up and down - gold stocks can also lead the way.
