Coundown to U.S. Debt Default, Dollar Under Pressure, Gold Market Active / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday, 3 August 1971 – Treasury secretary John Connally yesterday urged US banks not to follow the Bank of Michigan, the Financial Times reported, after the small bank raised its key lending rate from 6% to 6.5%.

Uranium Bull Market / Commodities / Uranium

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNuclear power has been a hot topic of recent.  And as a result, the price action of its input commodity has been quite schizophrenic.  Investors and speculators are in a state of great wonderment over what to expect from this intriguing mineral that is mined for energy.

Based on its core strategic fundamentals, investors ought to be wildly bullish on uranium’s future.  But with a veil of uncertainty cast over it thanks to the tragic Fukushima disaster, should we be looking at the future differently?  Of course only time will tell how things play out.  But based on cold-hard rationality, my money is on a future where nuclear power is an indispensible part of the world’s energy infrastructure.

Will the Debt Ceiling Debate Coincide with Short-term Ceiling for Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere are two words that Americans and the rest of the world have not paid much attention to until now: DEBT CEILING. The debt ceiling drama has been keeping Americans on the edge of their seats – and they better hold on tight as those seats could get repossessed on August 2.  It’s as if American’s national credit card, member since 1776, is valid only through 08/02/11. In a nutshell, the debt ceiling is America’s legal limit on borrowing, and the country is maxed out until Congress increases it.

Are Gold and Silver Support and Resistance Levels Holding? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

As I write this, the great debt debacle continues. The House vote on the GOP debt plan, scheduled to take place Thursday night, has been delayed. The markets finally seem to be pricing in the financial mess in Washington, as the S&P 500 (NYSE:SPY) fell 2% on Wednesday, and also closed lower on Thursday. Surprisingly, gold (NYSE:GLD) and silver (NYSE:SLV) have been declining this week as well.

Gold Top Devil’s Advocate / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Toby_Connor

The persistent and mindless bullishness on gold lately has got me nervous. When I get nervous the first thing I do is pull up a multi-year chart and look at the big picture.

A couple of things are apparent when one looks at the chart below. First as I've noted many times in the past gold has a tendency to move above a big round number before topping. It did it at $1025, $1225, $1432, and gold recently tagged $1630.
