Gold Stock Investors Looking at Huge Losses / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe magnification factor at work, on the down side. Gold drops less than 5% while gold stocks drop more than 15%. It worked on the up side, now we see it working on the down side. Although a long term bear market in gold bullion may be argued it sure is a bear for stocks with the average stock down 52% since their highs only a few months back.

Manipulation of Gold and Commodity Prices to Prevent Inflation and Higher Interest Rates / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Invisible Hand and the Pox Known as Usury - First, from Wikipedia, a little background on usury :

Usury (pronounced /ˈjuːʒəri/ , comes from the Medieval Latin usuria , "interest" or "excessive interest", from the Latin usura "interest") originally meant the charging of interest on loans.  After countries legislated to limit the rate of interest on loans, usury came to mean the interest above the lawful rate. In common usage today, the word means the charging of unreasonable or relatively high rates of interest…..

Gold Sharp Fall Despite Surging Investor Demand Blamed on Short-sellers / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold  fell sharply yesterday  on lower oil prices and the recently surging dollar, despite  unprecedented physical demand for coins and bars in the UK, US and internationally ( gold closed at $840.40  down $40.20 while silver  closed at $11.57 down $1.04 ).

As warned yesterday, anything is possible in the short term in these markets and leveraged trading in futures, CFDs and spread betting is an extremely high risk endeavour in the current markets and not advisable.

Resolve the Credit Crisis by Recapitalising the Banks with Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePrivatising profits, socializing losses (The Gold Standard Strikes Back... Part 2)

The 0.7 trillion dollar bailout plan of Treasury Secretary Paulson must be seen for what it is: a scheme to privatize profits while socializing losses. The scare tactics with which he was trying to railroad it through Congress has failed and the world is better for it. The malady has to be diagnosed properly. I summarize the popular diagnosis in five points.

How to Ride the Coming Precious Metals Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Global markets are whipsawing right now as the Federal Government tries to put out a fire in the credit markets with a flood of liquidity. But the rescue plan is failing. As a result, credit markets are spiraling into a deep freeze, threatening to destabilize the U.S. dollar.

Investors are running for cover ... because it sure beats jumping out the windows. Cash is good, to be sure. But if you're looking for your own golden parachute, consider my favorite yellow metal.

Crude Oil Rally Fails / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Crude oil prices are down about 7% from the intraday high and point towards a retest of the September lows at 93.36 and 90.50 next. Let's notice that yesterday's rally and today's initial attempt at extending yesterday's rally failed right at the sharply declining 20 DMA, which also represents the mid-point of the (width) of the declining Bollinger Bands. This is classic action: in a bull market, pullbacks find support at the rising 200 DMA, while in a bear market rallies fail and reverse to the downside from the declining 20 Day -- as is the case right now. I expect oil prices to plunge through the September lows on the way $80 next. Lower oil equates to a downside target of 70.00 in the US Oil Fund ETF (AMEX: USO).

$700 Billion Banking Bailout Will Drive Crude Oil to $250 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: I've been predicting record oil prices for a number of years now, so when crude oil prices recently plunged from their record highs, I warned investors and consumers that the decline was nothing more than a temporary respite.

But now it's clear that the fallout from the $700 billion banking bailout pact will virtually guarantee that my prediction will come true.

Will Commodities Recover from the Credit Crisis? / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Clif_Droke

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Money is the lifeblood of the economy.” This famous saying is easy enough to remember, yet how much easier is it to forget it when asset prices are pushed to unreasonable extremities. Consumers and investors alike are now being reminded of the veracity of this statement in a big way as the money panic rages on.

The term “credit crisis” can actually be broken down into two separate yet related categories. On the one hand the credit problem is a crisis in confidence. Confidence, after all, is the baseline requirement of any banking system. This is especially true for one as vast and reticular as the U.S. financial system. When confidence is lacking among participants in any credit-based financial system, money will become scarce and if the fear continues long enough, the wheels of commerce will grind to a halt.

Agri-Foods Mega-trend Gearing Up from Next Bullish Cycle / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne lesson of last nine years is that listening to Wall Street strategists is harmful to your future wealth. Doing just the opposite of daily hype of the business media is a good way to enhance your future wealth. Many Street strategists missed, for example, the rally in Gold while the stock market has produced really dismal returns. Now again they are attempting to mislead investors. Collapsing Wall Street firms really have very little to do with what happens in the world. Instead, the bail out plan simply diverts capital to more non productive investments.

Financial Crisis Worst Case Scenario- How Should I own Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEditor's Note: This article is written to address “worst-case” scenarios that should be considered as part of a comprehensive strategic wealth management plan. The author does not anticipate or predict that any such scenarios would or will materialize. However, planning for the worst while hoping for the best has always been excellent advice in both personal and business strategy and prudent planning may secure options for those who have planned appropriately. While reading, bear in mind that the probability of a worst-case scenario developing is always greater than zero and there are times when such a probability is considerably higher. Current events would appear to be raising the likelihood of financial and societal problems more severe than have been experienced in several generations.
