Egypt is Just the Beginning for Gold’s Next Move / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWatching CNN, its easy to be lulled into the sense that the cute little third world African country that is home to Cleopatra, mummies and pyramids is having a little revolution to get rid of a tired old tyrant. That the old goat is putting up such resistance to the national message is to be expected, and might be forgiven. Unleashing bands of paid thugs under the guise of ‘supporters’ reveals true brutality and illuminates the character of the man, Hosni Mubarak – a sociopath.

Gold & Silver Keep "Bernanke-Trichet" Gains / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF BOTH gold and silver bullion were little changed in London trade on Friday, unmoved by unexpectedly weak US jobs data near two- and 3-week highs respectively.

Adding 36,000 net jobs in Jan., the US economy still saw unemployment slip from 9.5% to 9.0% as a growing number of "discouraged" people – no longer seeking work actively – fell out of the official definition.

Crude Oil Prices Higher on Economic Outlook / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: LiveCharts

Oil prices are finishing off a second week of gains Friday (February 4) as the latest round of jobs data is expected to offer hope that the US economy is improving.

Analysts believe that non-farm payroll jobs increased by around 146,000 workers during January, according to a survey of economists. This has led to anticipation that the Labor Department will report that first-time jobless claims fell more than expected last week.

European indices are higher today and most are up by some 1.5% to 2% on the week – as are US indices.

Rare Earths Affecting Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Anthony_David

A Reuters poll indicates that oil prices in 2011 will be driven largely by Chinese demand and reach a little over $90 a barrel. Prices, however, are unlikely to cross the $100 mark given the high global inventories. Further, the current landscape is unlike that of 2008 when the supply-demand gap was massive enough to drive prices up to $147.27 per barrel.

The Truth About Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Anthony_J_Stills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEgypt seems to be coming apart at the seams and the unrest may be spreading to Jordan as the King fired members of his cabinet in order to stave off potential problems. Then comes Saudi Arabia and pent up resentment against that royal family. We already know that Tunisia and Syria are experiencing difficulties and it's not far from where we are today to a Middle East engulfed in an uprising. Bin Laden and the Taliban have been planting seeds for ten years and thanks to a very short sighted American foreign policy, it looks like they'll bare fruit sooner rather than later. Now the US is doing what it always does, calling for the removal of a man they supported for twenty years. Justified or otherwise such an about face sends a signal to the rest of the world that our word is not our bond and any friendship is fleeting at best.

Societal Shifts Present Growth for Precious Metals Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

It isn’t a secret that the demographics of the financial markets are changing.  The baby boom is retiring, shifting assets from equities and high-risk vehicles toward income generating debt instruments and safer investment alternatives.   It would be reasonable to suspect that the younger generation taking its place is filling the high-risk, high-reward opportunities following the exit of the older generations, but that simply is not the case.

Chinese Silver Buying Just Beginning / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Just a few decades ago, China the Giant was barely a mortal.  It produced most of what it consumed, and the corporate mega-producers installed during the darkest days of Asian freedom and democracy produced all the commodities the country might need within its own borders.

One such commodity was the one we all love: silver.  In fact, China produced so much that it couldn’t use all of it, nor was it interested in holding onto the metal.  The country was a net exporter until four years ago, when at the height of the most recent credit bubble, net imports materialized.  Today, China consumes more silver than it ever has in history.

Gold, Stocks and Dollar Trend Analysis and Forecast / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDo I See Lipstick On A Pig? Or Is The Stock Market and Gold Still Going Up?
As most sophisticated investors and traders are aware, the U.S. Federal government has run up significant deficits and the long term debt burden is becoming a drain on Gross Domestic Product. That being said, most economists are discussing the possibility of a major decline in the value of the U.S. Dollar going forward as inflationary monetary policy begins to strangle growth. While that view point may prove right over the long haul, in the short run most traders are not likely expecting the U.S. Dollar to rally.

Big Gains To be Made in Platinum and Palladium / Commodities / Platinum

By: Mike_Stall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile a majority of investors, analysts and experts dwelt on gold and (to a lesser extent silver) in 2010, sister precious metals platinum and palladium notched up significant gains matching gains in the investment safe havens. While gold and silver gained close to 30% and 80% respectively, platinum and palladium were nowhere lagging - gaining in the region of 20% and 100% in that order. We inspect long-term prospects of these lesser invested metals in this essay. A strong case for platinum and palladium makes for diversification of precious metals funds into these metals. This diversification of funds is of particular importance when Investors are being suggested to wait for medium-term corrections before stocks become 'investable' again.

The Simple Truth About Gold Leverage Programs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA lot of people ride motorcycles, but there's a reason most don't try to be Evel Knievel. Sure, there's a big reward if you can land a jump over 14 school buses - but what if you don't?

A new craze among our competitors is to push gold buyers into "leveraged accounts." In one of these accounts, the dealer lends you money to buy gold, on the assumption that gold will go up faster than the rate of interest on the loan. In other words, if you call with $5K, they'll give you another $20K in credit to make a $25K total purchase of gold bullion.

Gold Flat, Unable to Connect with Mid-East Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD in Dollars held flat for the third day running Wednesday morning in London, trading at $1337 per ounce as silver ticked lower with broad commodity markets but copper prices pushed up to fresh all-time highs.

Clashes broke out in Cairo as protesters demanded President Mubarak leaves office now, not in Sept. as he offered this week, but the gold bullion market's slack response during Egypt's unrest suggests "there is no direct link between geopolitical risk in the Middle East and the gold price," reckons one dealer in a note.
