Rising Crude Oil Prices, Is Yemen the Next Trigger? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Crude oil futures spiked to a 30-month high on Monday - and crude prices have zoomed 19% so far this year - so it's no surprise that energy stocks have enjoyed one whale of a run.

Even so, energy stocks continue to top my list of favorite plays - and for one very good reason.

Gold’s historic undervaluation versus oil / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Michael_J_Kosares

The Wikileaks/Financial Times revelations on significant gold buying interest in the Middle East — notably Iran’s central bank, Jordan’s central bank and Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund — brought to mind the story of Saudi Arabia’s King Ibn Saud and his sale of oil concessions to the major oil companies. In payment he received 35,000 British sovereigns — a coin many of you hold in your own sovereign wealth fund. The good king understood the difference between the value of gold and the value of a paper promise.

The Bedrock of the Gold Bull Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week I had the pleasure of participating in a webcast for Bloomberg Markets Magazine regarding gold investing. It was a very insightful presentation and I suggest you view the replay at www.bloombergmarkets.com. What struck me on the call was the negativity surrounding the gold market. Call it a bubble, a frenzy or mania, there seems to be a large number of voices in the marketplace who just are not fans of gold, whether prices are moving up, down or sideways.

The fatuous commentary suggesting gold is a bubble, gold has peaked, gold is a bad investment, etc shall from this point forward be consigned to its rightful place in the Horribly Flawed Thinking dumpster and discussion of same restricted to the hopelessly naïve (or sublimely clever and duplicitous) CNBC.

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe positive momentum of gold and silver continue with both higher in European trade as oil prices have risen due to geopolitical tensions in oil rich nations and the euro has fallen on Eurozone debt concerns.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Uranium spot prices and shares of uranium mining companies have plunged in recent weeks amid fears that the situation in Japan could deteriorate into a nuclear meltdown on par with Chernobyl.

Investors fear that the explosion and subsequent radiation leaks at the Fukushima nuclear power plant will force other countries to tighten restrictions, or worse, abandon their pursuit of nuclear power as an alternative source of energy.

By: Anthony_David

On March 11, 2011, The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) held a congressional briefing on critical metals, which includes strategic metals and rare earth elements (REEs). The briefing – entitled “Securing America’s Supply of Critical Materials and Rare Earth Elements: Implications for Renewable Energy” – focused on the global supply of critical materials, developments in China, and how US policy could be framed such that the nation’s expertise in the occurrence, detection, extraction, processing, and recycling of these commodities could be strengthened.

Silver Very Overbought / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver is very overbought and this fact coupled with the dramatic spike in the silver gold ratio would normally be expected to lead to a significant reaction by both gold and silver, as usually happened following such a situation in the past, but these are not normal times.

On its 2-year chart we can see how silver has been romping ahead since it broke out last August and following its latest upleg had become critically overbought by early March, but only a minor reaction followed.

Gold Real Money in a World of Fiat Currency / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the Masters of the System have decided to arbitrarily "move the goalposts" to suit themselves by printing money in unlimited quantities, fixing interest rates at artificially low levels, and backstopping the bond market etc, it is incumbent on us as investors to find a fixed point of reference and safe anchorage, the better to weather the financial storms that their crassly irresponsible policies are bringing upon us. That fixed point of reference is gold. As gold is real money it is aloof from the mess and mayhem that now exists in the world of fiat and which is rapidly getting worse - and here it is necessary to make a crucially important point, which is that at this time in world history you have to completely reorder your thinking with respect with gold.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a bit of irony here in that the very same banks that taxpayers bailed out, and saved from going completely belly up, are now making you pay once again in the form of higher Oil prices, and the resultant higher gasoline prices at the pump (Fig. 1). Don`t be fooled by the rhetoric generated in the media by the Big Banks regarding the Middle East.

The Lesson from Japan for Gold and Silver Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, BIG GOLD writes: It feels a little callous writing about Japan with respect to precious metals after the country suffered such a terrible tragedy.
