Platinum and Commodities Bubble, Deflationary Crash / Commodities / Platinum

By: Kyle_L_Lucas

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the weekend I received a note from a reader asking me to evaluate the market for Platinum. I hope she doesn't mind if I just quote the better part of her note to me: good morning, Lucas. A theme that I'd like you to look at - if it interests you - are platinum futures. The platinum/gold ratio is interesting. I read that the reason platinum sold off so badly was that outfits like GM had to liquidate their usual 6 month supply stockpiles. I've been noticing that some of the producers in the PGM sector have been 'coming alive'; and showing some pretty good relative strength, even in relation to gold miners. Anyway, looking at this etf, PGM, also showing signs of life...as you know, PGM holds futures; I would be inclined to buy it; but don't know how to evaluate the contango issue; so don't know whether a buy here would be a losing play because of the 'roll premium' drag, as it has been, and will continue to be (i believe; but wtf do I know?) with USO, which I would not buy.

Silver Surges But Remains Undervalued Compared to Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold fell some 1.5% last week as investors took profits with gold having been up some 10% in the previous three 3 weeks. But the short and medium term prospects look sound in the light of strong fundamentals and some important indicators – silver was up by another 4.2% last week and the gold mining indices were also higher (XAU +4.6% and HUI +2.3%). The mining indices are often a leading indicator and silver usually underperforms gold in the early stages of rallies and outperforms in the latter. Silver’s recent strength (up by some 15% since the start of the year) may be a prelude to higher gold prices in the coming weeks.

By: Kingsley_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleContrary to early 2008, oil and the stock market are now marching in lock-step. As the stock market's trading range tightened, oil's has done likewise.

COPPER- Upside Breakout Imminent, Implications for Commodities... / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough copper may seem like a sideshow it is actually very important, for it is a barometer of changes in the world economy. In retrospect it is easy to see on its long-term chart below that its refusal to break higher for several years from what turned out to be a major top area was a warning that all was not well with the world economy. The breakdown from the lower support line of the top area led to a crash back to the first major support level where it has stabilized. It remains wildly oversold, as shown by the huge gap between the 50 and 200-day moving averages.

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust read leading U.S. newspapers and one see that Banker has become an unpleasant word as banks take in taxpayers money and give nothing out. Then you have the endless blame game ["we didn't force people to borrow money" - yes, you did through enticing, pushy adverts and a rising property market incited greed, which you peddled!] as Everybody loves to blame someone else as the global banking system continues to teeter on collapse as central bankers raise the amounts needed to save them and keep them going. So why do and did the banks need saving? The banking system in the last 50 years has gone from a source of loans in a cash society to the very financial artery of the economies of the developed world.

Gold Boosted by Unprecedented Global Money Printing / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold remains firm as there is increasing nervousness about the global economy and indeed nervousness about the global monetary system and this is leading to continuing strong investment demand. Gold remains at or near record highs in nearly all major currencies ($914.00 £622.11 €713.06) and looks set to regain its nominal record high of $1,030/oz in the coming weeks. UBS joined Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch in drastically increasing their gold price forecasts yesterday. UBS has increased its 2009 average gold price forecast to $1,000 an ounce from $700 as investors seek a safe haven from the financial turmoil.

Crude Oil USO ETF Advances Off of New All-Time Low / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The US Oil Fund ETF (NYSE: USO) is showing interesting strength today after making a new all-time low this morning. As we speak the USO is pushing against initial key near-term resistance at 29.00, which if hurdled should trigger upside follow-through to test more important resistance at the prior recovery rally peak of 29.50. If such a scenario unfolds, then the confrontation at 29.50 will determine if the USO has established a very significant intermediate-term low.

Well, I do have the next best thing, though — a list of undervalued gold and silver miners that are trading at dirt-cheap valuations to their gold reserves.

Gold is Dead and Neitzsche had Nothing to do with it / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Gold kind of scares me because very often the people involved with it seem to be slightly insane.”– James Montier, head of equity research, Societe Generale, London

Some say that it doesn't matter when you buy gold, that you should buy it regularly and always, and that it represents the only true store of value. Fair enough. When all is said and done, buying gold may be the only means of acquiring real wealth for the very long term. Especially today, when all major currencies are devaluing by hook or by crook – some voluntarily, others not so – it behooves an investor to shore up his gold holdings.

Gold Price Disconnects from the U.S. Dollar / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold price has finally disconnected from its nemesis, the USDollar. This news should be read as the coming of spring after months of wintry torment, or as the sighting of land after 30 days adrift at sea in a derelict vessel. From 2002 to very early 2008, the gold price had risen from the massive speculative fervor that swept the United States and Europe, whose economies had been supplied largely by Asian factories. The mines from Latin America to South Africa to Australia greatly aided the process.
