By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, we may have a little deja vu all over again. What is the commonality between oil at $140 and Gold at more than $1,100? The answer is that demand for the oil was declining as oil approached $140, and the same is happening in Gold.

Gold Upside Targets / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mike_Paulenoff

As spot gold hits the next optimal target zone around $1172, let's look at the big picture of the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD). The next optimal target zone off the big base formation in the GLD  is 117.00/50. If no profit-taking and/or corrective action occurs in and around 117 (give or take a couple of dollars), then the concept of “vertical blow-off” gets into full swing, with a potential next target of 128-132.

Distorted IEA Oil Reserve Figures Create Biofuel Opportunities / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent revelations of a International Energy Administration whistleblower that the IEA may have distorted key oil projections under intense U.S. pressure is, if true (and whistleblowers rarely come forward to advance their careers), a slow-burning thermonuclear explosion on future global oil production. The Bush administration’s actions in pressuring the IEA to underplay the rate of decline from existing oil fields while overplaying the chances of finding new reserves have the potential to throw governments’ long-term planning into chaos.

Gold Surges to Record Nominal Highs in USD and EUR; $1,200/oz Soon? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: GoldCore

Gold has rallied to new record nominal highs in dollars with geopolitical concerns about Iran escalating and the dollar falling again. Possibly of more importance are increasing concerns about the unprecedented and huge public debt levels in large industrialised nations and the as of yet remote possibility of sovereign default (there are concerns that sovereign default could, like subprime, be the catalyst for the next stage in the global financial crisis).

Is Gold in a Bubble? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Robert_Blumen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has recently broken out to new highs, topping $1150/ounce. The financial media doesn’t trust this move. Widespread commentary has it that gold is in a bubble. Google reports numerous hits for a search on "gold bubble nov 2009." Financial writer and frequent television guest Dennis Gartman agrees:

"It is a gold bubble and to say otherwise it’d be naïve," Gartman said. He called the trade on the precious metal: "mind boggling and unbelievably crowded," but also said he is currently long – or betting gold will go higher.

Is Investing in Gold Only for Losers? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe move in gold since late October cannot be maintained.  Is there a rest or reaction ahead?  Let’s see what the indicators say.

ONLY FOR LOSERS

I read an interesting article in one of the daily newspapers about investing in gold (bullion).  The author made the case that investing in gold is a losing proposition and inferred anyone investing in gold must be nuts.  His basic point was that if you had invested in gold “at the top” in 1980 when it was above $800 and held on to it you would have lost your shirt in the next couple of decades as gold dropped below the $300 mark.  Now, do you see the fallacy in this kind of argument?  There are a couple.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is the second in a series of analysis on the Inflationary Mega-trend that is anticipated to unfold over the next decade. The last article (Deflationists Are WRONG, Prepare for the INFLATION Mega-Trend) concluded that ever escalating debt fuelled stimulus coupled with never ending Quantitative Easing sows the seeds for a building inflationary outlook far beyond the deflationary impact of debt deleveraging as the DEFLATION of 2008 becomes increasingly old news which is evident in the reaction of near across the board asset and commodity prices during 2009 which WILL translate into higher consumer price inflation during 2010.

What Will Drive the Gold Price in the Days Ahead? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is higher than ever before and is still climbing. Many investors are waiting for a fall in the gold price, because they are looking at the past market shape, that has not factored in the major sea-change in the shape of demand. Even many institutional analysts have not realized just what has happened to the market and turn only to their charts to decipher the next moves. You our subscribers, we hope, have realized from our writing and forecasts that a great deal more is still to come in this gold market in the years to come.
