Fear Pushing Gold to New High this Year / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Sean Broderick writes: Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI would like to state for the record that what's happening to the U.S. economy is freaking me out. And I think that if you're not scared, you're not paying attention.

That said, there are positive steps you can take to protect yourself and your portfolio — and I'll get to three of those steps in a minute. But just because I'm worried doesn't mean things can't end well. With some luck, maybe President Obama's economic team can stabilize things.

Gold and Silver Market Manipulation Conspiracy / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Robert_Bradshaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGoldsmiths Part XXX - To set the stage for what is to follow below, by this writer on the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, goldseek.com of Oct 1, 2008 had an article by Bix Weir on “My Gold and Silver Conspiracy Story” which really whets the appetite of a thinking person. Weir wrote that after WWII a vast gold hoard of Japanese gold (most of which was stolen from other Asian countries) was found hidden in over 175 different sites in the Philippine Islands by a member of General Charles Willoughby's staff. Willoughby was General MacA rthur's Chief of Intelligence.

Junior Gold and Silver Miners Staged to Climb from New Ground Floor? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhether irrational exuberance or the faltering dot-com industry triggered it, the economic downturn of 2001 hit junior resource companies hard. They bounced back in a big way. “Downturn” understates the current scenario, but AlphaNorth Asset Management President and CEO Steve Palmer sees similarities. He looks forward to taking advantage of opportunities “to get in on some of what has now become the new ground floor” and make some “tremendous gains.” While he anticipates more bad news on the employment front, he also tells The Gold Report followers that he believes “we've avoided the abyss” and confidence is returning.

Agri-Foods Prices Advancing in the Face of Strong Mega-trend Fundamentals / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStructural investments are perhaps the most powerful. Gold has, for example, been in a structural bull market for more than a decade. Those political and economic trends that have propelled Gold from $250 were simply a “carnival” ride that had only one way to go, up. The structural deficits of the U.S., which stem from an intellectual deficit in government, meant that Gold had could only go up. All one had to do was identify the structural bull, and remain seated for the entire ride.

Financial Times Lexx Favours Platinum Over Gold, Is the FT Right? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProfit taking saw gold fall yesterday but continuing very robust demand for physical bullion and gold ETF’s for safe haven purposes means that this is likely another period of consolidation.

There is a dawning realization that we are in the early stages of a severe global recession and possibly even a global Depression. In this uncertain climate for the global financial system and the global economy itself, risk aversion is set to remain elevated and thus demand for physical gold bullion will also remain elevated. As it will for silver but less so for the purely industrial precious metals of platinum and palladium.

In the spirit of “Change has come to America” and transparency, cameras were invited in for the ‘proverbial photo-op' in what was no doubt an attempt to demystify this shadowy organization. You can see this press conference for yourself beginning at the 3:20 minute mark of this video excerpt .

Natural Gas UNG ETF in Completed Bottoming Formation / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe daily chart of the U.S. Natural Gas Fund ETF (NYSE: UNG) argues strongly that the price structure has completed a rounded 2-3 week bottoming formation that should propel prices towards a confrontation with the 6-month resistance line(s) at 21.20-22.00 in the upcoming hours/days. The UNG needs to hurdle and sustain above 22.40 to trigger more meaningful buy signals that will indicate that an intermediate-term low has been established.

Precious Metals Regaining Monetary Status / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLoose in the head. As opposed to Hank Paulson, that's what traders now think of Geithner since he angered China before even getting in the door. They think he's loose in the head. So, delayed as the reaction was since he uttered the words Thursday, the trade bought gold, sold bonds, and who knows, maybe even reversed the dollar ($) despite the fact stocks look set to plunge. In this respect, Geithner's fumble, which is the only way to read that considering China is the US's biggest creditor, is the kind of thing that can cause trend changes, where we will find out soon if this is the case with respect to gold and the $.

Catastrophic Fall in 2009 Global Food Production / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Eric_deCarbonnel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter reading about the droughts in two major agricultural countries, China and Argentina, I decided to research the extent other food producing nations were also experiencing droughts. This project ended up taking a lot longer than I thought. 2009 looks to be a humanitarian disaster around much of the world

To understand the depth of the food Catastrophe that faces the world this year, consider the graphic below depicting countries by USD value of their agricultural output, as of 2006.

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.

Crude Oil Trading Range Tightens / Commodities / Crude Oil

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. Is crude setting up to take-off? As one may already know, explosive moves in either direction usually occur after a tight consolidation. However, in which direction it may go is difficult to say at this time.
