Silver Breakout Rally to Continue / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week the weight of the evidence suggested that silver was late in a base building process, and our judgement that this was the case was vindicated by subsequent action, when it broke out upside from the intermediate base pattern during the week in response to the inflation positive news out of Europe. This is discussed in some detail in the Gold market update, but suffice it to say here that Europe has decided that it will attempt to print its way out of trouble, just like the US, which is great news for holders of inflation hedges like gold and silver.

How Will Gold and Silver React to the EU Bailout Plan? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

After numerous jukes and headline rumors, the world finally received a so-called EU solution. After threatening with a total insolvency Greece situation, European leaders were able to talk bondholders into accepting a 50% haircut on Greek debt. Furthermore, the euro zone leaders agreed to increase the firepower of the European Financial Stability Facility. The markets reacted quite well to the news, even if it was just a knee-jerk reaction. The Dow surged 340 points, and is now on track for its biggest monthly percentage gain in nearly 25 years.

New Bull Phase for Agricultural Commodities Grains ETF / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The medium-term technical work in the iPath DJ-UBS Grains TR Sub-Idx ETN (JJG) indicates that a new bull phase started after the June 2010 low at 32.33, which completed its initial up leg at the Feb 2011 high of 58.25.

All of the action off of the Feb 2011 high, into the Oct 4 low, represented a complex corrective process that fully digested the gains of the prior up leg.

Will Gold and Silver Go Up Along with the General Stock Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe yellow metal, money for more than three millennia, has a close relationship to other forms of money. Some argue that it isn’t gold that has risen in value in the last decade, as much that fiat currencies have lost value against gold. Ever since gold began its spectacular rise a decade ago, the U.S. dollar has lost over 80% of its purchasing power. The other currencies have not fared much better. The euro and the Japanese yen have lost over 70%. Gold is the only form of money that governments cannot create out of thin air which is why the supply of fiat currencies is expanding exponentially faster than gold supplies, which increase by about only 3% per year.

Unconventional Oil Supply / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEach year a small portion of the world’s finite oil supply is drained.  And over time this annual draw has grown larger in a world that seems to be getting smaller.  As global commerce gains fluidity, the demand for this hydrocarbon appears to be insatiable.

Transportation is of course by far the largest consumer of oil, responsible for about 60% of global demand.  Everything we own and everything available to us to buy had to get from where it was made to the point of sale.  And it is oil that fuels this transportation.

Argentina Rule Change Casts a Dark Shadow Over the Gold Mining Industry / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

The re-elected President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, wants export revenues from mining projects to be repatriated and converted to Argentine currency prior to their distribution.

This rule change by the Argentinian government renders this country less attractive than it use to be to inward investors. It also serves as a reminder as to the myriad of risks involved in any mining operation. This one comes under the heading of Geo-political risk, as the re-elected government seeks to stem the flow of capital out of the country. Having this cash repatriated also gives the government the opportunity, further down the line, to introduce capital controls which would result in the cash having to be re-invested in Argentina.

Gimmick Car Fuels: Biofuels And Hydrogen Are Back / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot for long, of course.
Biofuels as a gimmick alternative to oil-fuelled cars wax and wane with oil prices. At times of specially high stress, that is high or fast-rising oil prices even hydrogen cars will be dredged out of the timewarp closet, to join today's real favourite - electric cars. Gimmick fuels and the cars which go with them are totally linked to the vagaries of oil prices because they all need oil to be manufactured: their media exposure soars when oil prices are high, then wanes with oil price lows, but everybody (sane) knows the simple fact: these are time wasting and money wasting gimmicks, to which we can add - with H2 Cars - they are outright lethal hydrogen bombs on wheels making Osama bin Laden totally surplus !
