By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE SPOT GOLD PRICE jumped sharply for US and Euro investors on Thursday morning in London, rising 1.7% and 1.4% respectively as world stock markets fell despite fresh cuts to central-bank interest rates.

Of five central banks voting on rates this week, only the European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt failed to reduce its cost of money, holding rates steady at 2.0%.

Goldman Sachs Gold $1000 as Safehaven Asset / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

With stock and bond markets under renewed pressure, gold remains very well bid and is up some 0.6% in early trading in Europe.

Goldman Sachs have increased their forecast for gold from the previously very low $700/oz to over $1,000/oz in the next three months due to “rising investor demand for safe haven assets”.

Crude Oil Investors Made 566% the Last Time This Happened / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo one really knew what to expect when Sid Bass took over the family oil business in 1968. Sid's father and uncle were wildcatters who struck it rich in the 1930's. The two built an oil company with 120 wells and a combined fortune of $50 million over the next three decades.

In 1968, the family fortune was handed over to Sid. Once at the helm, Sid hired Richard, one of his old college buddies, away from Goldman Sachs to help him invest the family's fortune.

Gold Part Commodity Part Currency Eyes $1,000 Near Term / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI love to analyze gold here in issues of Bourbon and Bayonets , especially with a focus on the macroeconomic issues that are extremely bullish for our favorite yellow metal. The economic crisis and complete lack of competence from our leaders has resulted in a current financial climate that will result in the most fantastic run the price of gold has ever experienced. The quantitative easing around the globe is definitely the greatest single bullish fundamental that will drive gold going forward. It's not the only reason gold will rise in price, but it definitely carries the most weight.

Gold Recovers Back to $900 as Global Demand Remains Robust / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has recovered somewhat from the 1.5% loss yesterday to close at $890.60 (as did silver which was down 0.6%) and rose 1% in after hours and is trading at just below $900/oz in late morning trading in Europe.

While stock markets have had a relief rally on a return of risk appetite, the US bond market was again under pressure as was the dollar. Selling in bonds markets and of the dollar is likely to increase in the coming weeks and this should see gold look to regain the $1,000/oz mark.

Gold and Crude Oil Top Peter Grandich’s Investing 2009 Shopping List / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Grandich, creator and producer of The Grandich Letter for a quarter century, allied himself with AGORACOM in October, bringing his well-known and oft-quoted commentaries to a far wider audience than his subscriber base and financial media such as The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch, CNN, GlobeInvestor, Financial Post and BNN. Breaking away briefly from his recent blogging, the veteran Wall Street watcher and investment advisor tells The Gold Report readers what he likes looking forward—gold (up to $1,000) and oil (between $35 and $40). Also high on his list: uranium (for the nuclear renaissance), junior miners (a select few), and Canadian banks (pretty much all of them).

Gold Being Driven to New Highs by Obama Pork Stimulus Plan / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week the U.S. Congress did us all a favor. $Gold rose by about $40 due to their efforts. What did they do? Well, the U.S. Congress voted to risk another depression by including a “Buy American” clause in what is mistakenly referred to as an economic stimulus plan. That clause bars the purchase of imported iron and steel. If the U.S. Senate persists in the “Buy American” requirements, and also bars the purchase of manufactured goods, in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2008 that risk of a depression will rise further. If ultimately signed into law, the Obama Depression looks like a betting man's risk.

Gold Consolidates as January Portends for Bearish Year for Stock Markets / Commodities / Investing 2009

It remains near record highs in British pounds, Euros (03-Feb-09 London AM Fix: $902.00, £636.02, €702.93 ) and many other currencies internationally as fiat currencies internationally come under pressure due to the unprecedented zero percent interest rates, quantitative easing, bailouts and stimulus packages.

Natural Gas ETF UNG Significant Low? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bull trap (failed upside breakout) above 19.00 on Friday was followed by a stair-step decline that pressed the US Natural Gas Fund ETF (UNG) to a new all-time low this morning at 17.76, which from my technical perspective either represents the conclusion of the entire downleg from the 1/06 recovery high at 25.83 -- ahead of the start of a powerful rally period -- OR initiation of a new downleg that will press the UNG towards 15.00.

The Gold Silver Ratio Analysis Update / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow has the Gold Silver Ratio (GSR) been doing recently and how does this stand up against the price action of gold and silver over the past years?

Now I don't personally use this ratio to trade in and out of silver. Some people swear by it and use it as a useful tool to swap between silver and gold when one becomes undervalued relative to the other. Where I come from in Britain with the high sales tax and spreads on silver, such a pursuit is not very profitable but I know it is for others.

Copper, Zinc, Nickel, Lead and Aluminum Base Metals Technicals / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot too long ago base metals were the hottest of commodities. In their bull markets the prices of these industrial-use metals had soared to lofty heights to reflect the speculative risk premiums brought on by greatly imbalanced markets. Copper, zinc, nickel, lead, and aluminum achieved staggering trough-to-peak gains of 574%, 523%, 1124%, 829%, and 151%!

A mixture of robust infrastructure growth and hoarding led to demand far outpacing supply. Global stockpiles were being drained to alarmingly-low levels, the world's smelters and refineries were operating at full capacity, and the mining companies couldn't bring their metals to market fast enough.
