Gold Jumps on Strong European Inflation Data / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD jumped almost 1.3% from an early dip in London on Monday, rising above $879 per ounce as the latest European inflation data showed the cost of living rising at a 16-year record.

"Everywhere I turn, inflation is out of control," said Peter McGuire of Commodity Warrants Australia to Bloomberg TV overnight.

Changes- Living in the Last Days of Cheap Resources and Cheap Commodities / Commodities / Resources Investing

Went to the store and paid 7 bucks for 2 pounds of fresh North Carolina blueberries. Does that sound like a good deal? Milk was close to 5 dollars a gallon. Evidently, trying to compete with gas prices. Anyone confused where things are headed? Need tech support on your PC and you will find yourself talking to someone in India .

Global Economic Growth Drives Energy Sector Demand Upward / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the cost of crude oil has soared in recent years, the amount produced hasn't kept pace with demand. Worldwide oil production has barely budged, despite record prices. Since 2004 the price of oil has gone from $33 per barrel to $132 – meanwhile production has risen just 1.8 percent, to 84.6 million barrels per day.

Gold Longterm Trend Turns Bearish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThese $10 and $20 moves are quite frustrating, especially those on the down side, BUT if one looks closely on a chart there might be things that may be encouraging (or not). So, let's look at some charts.

GOLD: LONG TERM - What we have here is a long term point and figure chart of the gold price movement since 1987. The red lines are bear trend or resistance lines while the blue lines are bull trend or support lines. The thickest lines are primary lines while the thinner lines are secondary.

Black Swans and Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: John_Needham

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile it is all white swans and their cygnets on the common at this time of the year in London , black swan events are a very real possibility as John Needham explains in the following article. - Yvonne Lundon-Marchant - The Daniel Code U.K. and Europe

With Fed chief Bernanke trumpeting that the credit crisis is abating, a postscript to his promise that “the subprime problem is contained”, and asserting that the US will not see recession, punters are feeling warm and fuzzy about US markets and apart from an occasional frown about gasoline prices, generally the thrust is that the worst is over. If you are in that camp you may have to think again. As our theme photo shows, tree climbing skills come in handy when bears are on the loose.

The Danger of Government Intervention in the Commodity Markets / Commodities / Government Intervention

How Will the Oil Market Drive Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

The oil price rose to $139 on Friday and looked like it was 'spiking' to over $150. But is it? That's a rise of 44% this year. A great deal more than technical chart pointers will be needed to understand where oil, food, gold and silver are headed in this environment. If this is the time when consumer and investor demand will rise beyond supply's ability to provide enough, then this is not a 'spike' but a structural change in the market. It will produce a systemic crisis that has to be resolved in collaboration by the world's governments. Are they capable of such cooperation? The prospect of $200 oil then comes into view.

Energy Stocks that Will Profit from Widening of the Crude Oil Crack Spread / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Keith_Fitz-Gerald

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere at Money Morning over the past six months, we've talked a great deal about oil and gasoline prices. We've offered our predictions about how high those prices were going , and have detailed a number of investment opportunities - chosen as much for their margins of safety as for their profit potential.

This time we're going to detail three energy stocks with the potential for double-digit - or even triple-digit - profit gains. Admittedly, these are longer-shot, speculative plays. But we used a special energy indicator to help ferret out these energy plays.

The Treasury Yield Curve and the Gold Bull Market Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome very confusing factors are at work relating to the US Treasury Bond market and the gold market. To assume that gold will rise in knee jerk fashion in response to the gargantuan grotesque growth in monetary inflation (aka US$ money supply) is simply naïve for the public and amateurish for professionals. Never in the US history has more confusion reigned within the body financial. This is to be expected, since the US banking system is insolvent, in parallel to the US housing landscape being increasingly insolvent. The nation must soon make difficult decisions on rebuilding the United States , its infrastructure, its energy supply industry, and put down its military weapons used abroad. Some strange effects are detectable regarding the US Treasury yield curve changes in recent weeks.

Nothing Sweet About Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne thing that I have noticed whenever I publish an article on gold that concludes with a bearish outlook, it tends to be followed by an healthy email response usually informing me that I am completely wrong and that gold is destined to travel to the moon. No other market analysis generates such a response. This clearly signals to me that many, many investors are over weighted in the gold and precious metals which in itself is a warning sign of an imminent peak.

Crude Oil Rising, Clean Energy Reversing? / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen I look at the daily chart of crude oil, now it appears that a new upleg is in progress with a target of ... $150? ... $160? ... who knows? What is really interesting to me now is the potential geopolitical connections that could be the underlying reasons why crude just never sustains lower prices for very long.

It seems to me from what I have been reading that the three leaders around the globe who are in trouble are Bush, Olmert, and Ahmadinejad. And all three could be looking at confrontation as a way to save their presidencies, and/or to try to ensure that their political party remains in office. Confrontation?

Bond prices slipped, pushing interest rates higher. The Dollar rose sharply on the forex market. Crude oil and commodity prices fell.

Oil Bull Market: It's Not Too Late to Profit! / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: Being bullish (or bearish) on a market should not mean being blind. For instance, I've been forecasting sharply higher oil prices ever since I turned bullish way back in 2001. And I am still bullish. But I also keep my eyes wide open for anything that might get in the way of oil's bull market.

I often step back in order to make sure I'm not overly influenced by greed and fear, which are the dominant emotions on Wall Street. This is critically important when a market gets as euphoric as oil is today.

Gold Stocks - the Rumbling Volcano About to Explode! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRising inflationary expectations keep money exiting the faltering stock markets away from their designer-made "safe havens" - government bonds. The result will be a powerful breakout of the precious metals and their mining shares.

The time for gold stocks to regain their old leverage over gold and ratchet up into their next higher orbit is very near, even though at the moment it may not look that way. Here are the reasons why:

A Primer on the Silver Basis- Putting Loin-Cloth On The Naked Bogeyman / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI started writing this piece as the sub-prime crisis was unfolding. I wanted to establish the connection between the silver basis and the budding banking crisis caused by phony bond insurance schemes and the lack of hedging irredeemable dollar debt with metal holdings. My original title was Putting Clothes on the Naked Bogeyman . As writing progressed I realized that it would take more than one article to dress up the bogeyman; hence the revised title.
