Gold Timing, Gold:Bonds Ratio Matters Over Bond Yields' Ratio / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflation vs. market fluctuations is always a hot topic in precious metal markets. Inflation is good for gold, which has a long history of acting as a hedge against it. With rising inflation it is likely that there will be a corresponding rise in the price of precious metals; that brings us to the question, how do you value gold? It is evident that there is no scientific method for valuing gold since it’s a non-earning asset. Perhaps we should value gold by “1/n, where ‘n’ is investor confidence in paper currencies. But how do you measure ‘n’?  Let’s have a look into the history.

Gold and Silver the Ultimate Profit Keys and Wealth Protection / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The lack of growth in the M3 measure — traditional broadest money supply measure used by the Fed until its abandonment in March 2006 — suggests a re-intensifying systemic solvency crisis, as does the continued lack of growth in bank lending.  The implications here remain extremely negative for broad economic activity.  On the inflation front, however, where there is an overhang of $7 trillion or so outside the United States — being held at the whim of dollar investors — that has to be considered in the U.S. monetary picture.  Higher prices already are being seen in a number of dollar-denominated commodities, ranging from oil to food.  The higher prices are anticipating and fueling the early stages of Mr. Bernanke’s desired debasement of the dollar.”

Gold, Silver and the Validity of Technical Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently the economics site: www.FinanceandEconomics.org published an article on "Precious Metals and the validity of Technical Analysis. We completely agree with the thoughts expressed there and in this piece would like to expand on their thoughts here. Over the last eight years or so we have seen the Technical Analysis approach to the gold price give incorrect signals, when seen in isolation. Many times the technical picture pointed down on the gold price in the face of a strong fundamental picture. We know that this has wrong-footed many gold investors who found themselves waiting for a fall only to see it consolidate then rise.

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver are higher against all currencies (except the Canadian dollar) in the wake of the worse than expected trade deficit number ($40.6 billion). Sterling and euro are particularly weak against gold and the US dollar today.

Monetary Inflation and Supply Concerns Drive Commodities More So Than Demand / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mainstream press loves to talk about emerging market demand as a cause of inflation, rising prices and the bull market in commodities. Did emerging markets suddenly begin demanding food, energy and metals in 2001? What about five and ten years earlier? Its a rhetorical question. The conventional wisdom is wrong.

Investors Should Focus on Chinese Agri-Food Stocks Opportunities / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday a sign of true wealth is owning a horse. Cost of feeding them has escalated dramatically as Agri-Food prices have risen. Owning two horses is an ostentatious flaunting of one’s wealth. Paying an Iowa farmer for corn with which to produce ethanol is still criticized by many poorly informed individuals. They might better serve to lower food prices if they attacked the frivolous feeding of  Agri-Foods to horses. Perhaps horse ownership should be banned except on working ranches. That all said, any Agri-Food shortages around the world are due to government policies. Horses and weather only serve to exacerbate the situation.

Uranium to Cross $100 Threshold in 2011 / Commodities / Uranium

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePhilip Williams, Pinetree Capital's VP of business development, says the spot price for uranium will likely explode above $100/lb. in 2011, much as it did in 2007 when it topped at $137. The good news, Philip says, is that even when uranium comes off its high, it will likely only fall to around $80. It's around $73 now. If Philip's right, we're on the cusp of another round of uranium market madness. And you will want to read this Energy Report exclusive for some of Pinetree's favorite uranium and lithium plays.

Showdown in the Gold and Silver Markets: Let's Get Ready to Rumble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver is likely to lead the way higher from here, with gold following.

The suppression of the metals by the central banks since 1971 will not fall apart in a moment. But if there is a time to which people will later point and say, 'this was the turning point,' it is likely to be in the intital breakout of silver above twenty and of gold from its big cup and handle formation. To borrow an analogy from wartime, this was their Stalingrad, prelude to Kursk.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Barnes writes: The world is finally waking up to the fact that global grain prices are destined to head higher - much higher.

Nasty weather in key agricultural markets around the world has savaged the global grain crop, meaning worldwide supplies can't help but be squeezed. Australia, for instance, is experiencing additional flooding in areas that were already battered by the torrential rains of November, December and January.

Municipal Bond Market Shock Could Ignite Silver Charts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Less than 45 days into 2011, it appears that this just may be the year of the paper recovery, but that doesn’t mean that lingering problems have been wiped away.  At center stage now is the municipal bond market, which having grown tremendously as investors fled to safe havens in 2009, may soon find itself in a perilous situation.
