By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCountries bailed out the banks. Now who is left to bail out the countries?

Smart Money Holds Gold and Buys Major Miners / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs he watches the price of gold march inexorably toward $2,000 (and beyond), and keeps an eye on developments in the Western world, S&A Resource Report Editor Matt Badiali tells Gold Report readers in this exclusive interview that it's time to make space in the safe for gold. That's gold to hold, preferably to pass on to one's heirs, but if need be to pay for one's meat and potatoes. As for investments in these troubled times, he's hot about investors adding shares of the booming senior gold mining stocks to their portfolios because "we're going to see them really soar."

Will European Central Banks begin Selling Gold Again? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the inception of the fourth Central Bank Gold Agreement last year on September 27th, sales by European central banks have been nearly non-existent.   But that was before the € began to implode and fractures appeared in the Eurozone itself.   Now governments have to fiercely cut back expenditures.   They must do this to the extent that the reaction is certain to be social unrest.

Gold Inflation Proof Deflation Hedge / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKnowing how governments will respond to deflation, the case for inflation-proof gold looks increasingly clear to cautious wealth...

USELESS for pretty much everything except storing wealth (its economic value is social, not industrial), gold acts as inflation-proof money when investors need it most – right in the middle of an asset-price deflation.

Why Gold Is a Sure Long-Term Bet / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a spectacle...

In an utter and complete repudiation of its founding principles, the European Union's central bank (ECB) has decided to copy the U.S. Federal Reserve's 2008-2009 strategy of "papering over" Europe's massive debt problems. The ECB will provide nearly unlimited credit to Europe's sovereign borrowers, while also buying troubled assets from Europe's largest banks.

Hurricane Season Crude Oil and Natural Gas Profits / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Sean_Brodrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 2010 Atlantic hurricane season officially starts on June 1. But smart traders are already gearing up. The Gulf of Mexico is responsible for 13% of the U.S. natural gas production (and 30% of its domestic crude oil production). A strong hurricane — or two — hitting in the wrong place could knock some of that production offline. And just the possibility of that happening could put a bid into energy prices when and if the first hurricanes form off the coast of Africa.

Earlier this month, two offshore production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico were shut as a safety precaution against the spreading oil slick from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. But that’s not the real threat.

Gold Resilient on Financial Uncertainty and Double Dip Recession Concerns / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is marginally lower (-0.2% in USD terms) and is currently trading at $1,180/oz and in Euro and GBP terms, gold is trading at €944/oz and £823/oz respectively. Gold has risen in sterling terms after the much higher than expected UK budget deficit (see below). Gold is only down some 4% on the week (USD - $1,230/oz to $1,180/oz) which is impressive given the sharp sell off seen in most commodity and equity markets.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"If you want to talk about the Gulf and the oil leak in terms of investment, I think it's creating some pretty interesting investment opportunities," says Eric Nuttall, portfolio manager of Sprott Asset Management's Energy Fund. The straight-shooting Nuttall never fails to opine or shine as he explains why onshore oil plays are solid investments and talks oil and gas juniors, shales and prices in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report.

Gold Down 1%, Follows Sharp Drops In Commodity and Stock Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Markets have seen another marked increase in risk aversion with a sea of red engulfing nearly all markets including the gold market. Equity markets have fallen sharply as have most commodities. The precious metals have not been immune to the meltdown with silver down 3% and palladium and platinum plummeting 9.5% and 6% respectively. Oil has plummeted by more than 8% as have most commodities with gold one of the better performers – only being down 1%.

The Logic of selling Gold in May and ‘going away.’ / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShould you invest – or should you trade?

Featured is the gold price in 2001. Selling in May and buying back right after Labor Day would have yielded a small profit, provided that the sale was made right at the top in May (not easy).

All Crude Oil Is Similar, But Crude Oil ETFs Are Not / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Ron_Rowland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou may have noticed that crude oil prices plunged over the last few weeks. On May 3, the June crude oil futures peaked at more than $87. Then on Monday, May 17 the same contract slipped below $70. That’s a decline of about 20 percent in only ten market days!

Of course we could go back in history and point to some periods when oil prices went up just as quickly. What this illustrates is that — like many commodities — crude oil can be very volatile.

Gold, Focus On What Matters / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI know this is hard to do, especially when one is weathering draw downs.  And of course a liberal dose of gloating from the bears during these times doesn't help either.  But let's not get sidetracked by the little things and let's face it, the haters are going to show up every time gold corrects.  We really should be used to that by now.  They've been doing it for 10 years.

Gold Plunge to $1,175 a Buying Opportunity? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This is a brief analysis of the ongoing gold price correction as gold hits $1,175, targeting strong support area at $1,150.

The big picture remains as detailed at length in the 100 page inflation mega-trend ebook (FREE DOWNLOAD) that ALL Central banks have NO option but to print money - ALL. Despite rhetoric from the likes of the Bank of England, U.S. Fed and up until very recently the ECB that they had either halted or would not print money. However there IS NO alternative, especially in the face of the global debt crisis.
