Coal Appears to Have Completed Near-term Correction / Commodities / Coal

By: Mike_Paulenoff

As long as this morning's pullback low at 49.80 in the Market Vectors Coal ETF (NYSE: KOL) contains any forthcoming weakness, my pattern work is "warning" me that the KOL has completed a near-term correction within an otherwise still powerful bullish channel, and has turned up for a retest of the prior high at 54.00, likely on the way to new highs at 56.00.

Energy and Resources in High Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Aden_Forecast

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere seems to be no stopping the high flying oil price as it leaps above $130, a price that seemed unlikely just last December. The growth in oil demand will continue to be driven by China and Asia , in spite of the U.S. economic slowdown.

In fact, according to the International Energy Agency, China, India , Russia and the Middle East will consume more crude than the U.S. , for the first time. Oil use worldwide will increase 2% this year because of the emerging markets. So with demand as robust as it is, any possible supply disruption will simply push oil up further.

Gold Follows Crude Oil Slide / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF PHYSICAL GOLD slumped another $18 at the London opening on Wednesday, falling to an eight-session low as crude oil slid yet again.

European equity markets turned sharply higher for the first time in a week – gaining 1.5% in Paris – while bond prices fell on news of accelerating inflation in Germany , the Eurozone's largest single economy.

Gold Technically Damaged / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold's sharp sell off yesterday (Gold closed at $907.40 down $18.60; Silver at $17.45 down 79 cents) has continued. Gold traded sideways in Asia before selling off again late in Asia and in early trading in Europe. Stock markets in Asia were mixed overnight but European markets have recovered from early losses and the FTSE is up nearly 0.5% in the session so far.

Gold Alternative Elliott Wave Counts / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“We've made no secret of viewing the current bullishness as a “sucker's rally” until proven otherwise, and will continue to seek verification for this view, with an open mind towards changing our outlook if dictated by price action. The current advance… could easily extend to the 5-week sma, at about $920. Strong resistance also exists at $955. Dollar strength seems technical and artificial, rather than based on strong fundamentals, but may yet last just long enough to provide the best gold buying opportunity in months.” ~ Precious Points: So Far So Good, May 17, 2008

Leverage Alternatives for Junior Mining Shares / Commodities / Options & Warrants

By: Dudley_Baker

Investing in the junior mining shares over the last year or two has been considered risky at best and perhaps insanity by some investors. So, why would we be looking for leverage on the junior mining sector when the shares and the mining indices are hardly keeping up with the price of the bullion, gold or silver? Why not just purchase gold or silver? The simple answer is that many analysts believe the juniors will eventually break out and greatly out perform (as they have historically) and will reward investors beyond their dreams. Currently, there are signs of a bottom forming and thus it is a great time to discuss different forms of leverage for those investors willing to take on slightly more risk than merely purchasing the junior mining shares.

Importance of Covariance between Agri-Food Prices and Gold / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Prices are influenced by two forces. Inflation, caused by monetary expansion, is an increase in the general price level. That influence is felt directly though domestic prices rising and through a depreciating national money forcing imported prices higher. Additionally, prices on a relative basis can change. In the Agri-Food sector both influences have been felt. Prices for Agri-Food commodities have moved higher on a relative basis as a massive global demand shift has occurred.

Cyclical Corrections In Secular Trends  / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat is what is happening right now in stocks, commodities, and currencies, as the secular trends that were prevalent in all three asset groups up until mid-May will reassert themselves at the appropriate time, in the not too distant future. For stocks, this will involve a newer trend lower in both absolute and relative terms. For currencies and commodities the understanding is not so straightforward however, where all of the former are depreciating against the later being the important take-away. As per our title however, in the meantime cyclical (intermediate-term) corrections that can last for months are in play at present, meaning commodities could correct lower for some time (months) as the US Dollar Index ($) works off an oversold condition.

Don't Blame Crude OIl Speculation- Commodity Prices Are Driven by Fundamentals / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Frank_Holmes

John Derrick writes: U.S. Global Investors (Nasdaq: GROW ) recently hosted a webcast titled “Energy and Commodities Trends: Speculative or Sustainable?” to provide a closer look at the current strength in natural resources prices. Our timing for this topic was good: oil prices hit a record $135 a barrel last week and drivers get more and more depressed every time they pull up to the gas pump.

Raising Margin Requirements May Spike Oil Prices Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mack_Frankfurter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommodity pricing theory mainly focuses on the transference of a “risk premia” from risk-adverse hedgers to speculators. This insurance-like context was first proposed by Keynes (1930) in his theory of normal backwardation. Essentially, Keynes believed that hedgers have to pay speculators a risk premium to convince them to accept their risk.

Dr. Richard Spurgin (2000) explained it in the following way. There are four types of participants in futures markets: short hedgers, long hedgers, speculators and arbitrageurs. Short hedgers are commercial producers and long hedgers are commercial consumers.

Why Crude Oil Prices have Spiked Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMaybe it is just bad timing. Maybe our luck has run out. Whatever the case, it is downright unfortunate that the full effects of skyrocketing world oil supplies had to be realized during the silly season of a presidential election cycle. It is virtually a lock at this point that what needs to be said will be left unsaid and what needs to be done will be left undone. This week as crude oil pierced the $130/bbl mark and headed all the way above $135 before pulling back a multiple of reasons were offered. Some have merit while others do not even deserve mentioning.

Silver Coin Shortage Could Lead to Silver Price Spike / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold was up 3% last week and silver surged nearly 8% (more on silver below) and in normal circumstances profit taking would be expected in the early part of this week. But with oil remaining near record levels and inflation concerns increasing significantly, gold (and silver) may again surprise to the upside. Oil was up by 4.6% last week and is up another 1% today. Gold and silver will outperform oil in the coming weeks.

Sell Gold in May and Go Away? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is currently moving in volatile times and to me at least the debate on where it is going next looks increasingly polarized. While the hot money seems to have abandoned gold and silver to ride the crude oil bandwagon (which will certainly suffer the same drop soon), the old maxim "Sell in May and go away" seems to have been pinned to gold's lapel.

Why Gold Will Get Whacked Again! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has recovered from its previous two “whacks” rather nicely this past week and the Friday before, but it will very likely be whacked again very soon, possibly as early as this coming Monday.

Why?

Because gold is rising while the Dow/US stocks are in ultra-dangerous territory.

Rising Crude Oil Price Brings Out Nut Case Energy Crisis Solutions / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Shedlock

The price of oil has been soaring and nut case solutions are coming out of the woodwork in response. I have talked about this twice recently in Congress Threatens Oil Producers and Congressional Insanity: Sue OPEC over Oil Prices .

But as silly as those actions are, it is nothing compared to the stark raving lunacy proposed by Martin Hutchinson in Time to do something about oil .

Crude Oil and the Polar Bear / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Kurt_Kasun

Last week the Bush administration declared polar bears as threatened species, acknowledging that global warming jeopardizes the species' livelihood as a result of rapid Artic sea ice depletion. The polar bear serves as a symbol for those who view climate change and global warning as the most important issue of our time. On the contrary, the panda represents China 's seemingly insatiable appetite for consuming raw materials, with the world's resources being further strained by the unprecedented growing masses of people in India and other developing nations increasing their standard of living with their financial upward mobility out of poverty.

Crude Oil Spikes Impact on Gold and Silver Price - Part 2 of 2 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Why Supply is Not Rising with Higher Prices?
On the supply side, certain opaque realities are often overlooked and have to be faced clearly. Non-OPEC oil producers are unable to push up oil production as fast as incremental demand is expanding. Old oil fields are declining while new ones are not coming on stream fast enough. This situation will not change in the next few years, unless new oil fields are found.
