Is the Gold Rush Over? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: LiveCharts

Neil Kokemuller writes: Since 2000, gold has been one of the most consistent and high performing investments in the financial investment arena.  The shiny natural resource has returned profit at an annual rate of return around 16 per cent during the last eight years.  However, after setting a new all-time high at $1,020 per ounce early in 2008, gold has become somewhat stale.  This has become especially apparent of late as investors have become more interested in moving back into more risky investments, including stocks.

Gold and Silver Fall Despite Firm Global Demand / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

Precious Metals vs A One Global Currency / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: David_Morgan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn article on Reuters recently indicated a United Nations panel has decided much of the world would like to move away from the American currency as the world’s reserve currency. This panel wanted to look into a “basket of currencies” or perhaps another entirely different, new currency to replace the U.S. dollar. Additionally, both the Russians and Chinese have indicated similar concerns.

Gold and Gold Stocks Should Do Well During Economic Depression / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI. M. Vronsky writes: As you well know the financial press is overly harping the theme of another Great Depression. One can make a logical case that it will happen, as well as it will probably not happen. To be sure the Herculean efforts by the Obama Administration and China et all imply that we are at the very precipice of 1930s like scenario. Frankly, I do not believe another Great Depression will develop, but I do know gold stocks will do well one way or the other. In this regard I hope MARKET ORACLE might consider an old article of mine for publication as it proves gold and in particular gold stocks should do well in a Great Depression.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile I continue to believe that the next breakout in Gold is still months away, we have seen in just a short while, some very encouraging signs on the sentiment front. Accumulating is certainly a wiser prospect now that the luster of the metals has faded yet only superficially.

Gold Attempting to Consolidate at Lower Levels / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold and silver rose marginally in US trading yesterday and have largely traded sideways in Asian and European trading. Gold appears to be consolidating in the $865/oz to $900/oz region and needs a higher weekly close (above $883/oz) and then a close above $900/oz to look good from a technical perspective. This looks quite possible but there are very determined sellers at the $900/oz level who have so far impeded gold’s advance.

Crude Oil in Bullish Consolidation / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

All of the action in the U.S. Oil Fund ETF (NYSE: USO) since the March 26 high has taken the form of a coil that is attached to the Feb-Mar upleg from the 22.74  low.  Because the coil has formed within the upper 40% of the major recovery upleg, I consider it a bullish consolidation pattern, which if accurate will mean that it should resolve itself to the upside in a powerful thrust to new recovery highs – above 32.39 (into the 34.00 target zone).  At this juncture, only a decline that breaks the integrity of the coil at 28.50 -- and more importantly at 28.32 – will wreck the pattern.

Where Have All the Gold Mines Gone? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNear-Term Production - This year’s corporate mantra for a crowd of junior explorers and miners is quite simple: “get us some near term gold production fast” (or some variation thereof). The motive of course is pure: get the share price up. For companies with $2 million to $200 million in the bank the magic bullet to riches is perceived to be the acquisition of that one gold property or company that everyone else has missed. It’s a simple and easy to understand business plan that doesn’t take a genius to grasp – find it and buy it cheap while no one else is looking. I am personally aware of more than a dozen management teams pursuing this model and there are probably another 50 companies that fall into this category. I have also spent countless hours in the same search and come to the conclusion that everyone else hasn’t missed much. This particular path to corporate riches may turn out to be an elusive dream.

Is Copper Poised for a Sustainable Secular Bull Market? / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last 4 months, copper has bounced about 70% from its lows. Yet it is only recently that such a significant price move is beginning to attract attention as pundits try to explain what is going on. With stocks roaring back over the past 5 weeks, the obvious (and wrong) connection is that the global recession is ending. To me, copper's price rise is more technical after a deeply oversold condition, and it appears that the pundits are only crafting a good story to explain its recent price movements.

Gold Follows Stocks Lower as U.S. Dollar Strengthens / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

THE SPOT PRICE of physical gold slipped out of a tight range at the start of New York trade Tuesday morning, holding onto half of yesterday's 1.4% rise as world stock markets reversed early gains and the US Dollar clawed back half of its near-2% loss to the Euro.

Gold and Silver Rise on General Motors Bankruptcy Fears / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold and silver rose yesterday as stocks came under pressure with increasing fears regarding General Motors possible bankruptcy. Ostensibly positive news from the financials (Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs) has lifted markets in recent days but there are concerns that the positive results may have had more to do with government largesse (with tax payers money) and innovative accounting rather than any meaningful return to profitability. The rest of the reporting season is unlikely to be so positive as companies and sectors not bailed out and supported by government are set to struggle which will likely see stocks under pressure again.

Natural Gas UNG ETF Shorts Running on Borrowed Time / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe saga continues in the U.S. Natural Gas Fund ETF (NYSE: UNG) as the price structure perpetuates a profile of making marginal new all-time lows but fails to follow-through on the downside and then stages a recovery bounce.  The problem is that the recent rally attempts have failed to hurdle any meaningful resistance levels (such as 15.50), which leaves the UNG still stuck within its dominant downtrend despite its loss of downside momentum since late March.

Commodities Markets Have Bottomed / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommodity prices have started to recover since the massive commodity fund liquidations and inventory reductions at mine, refinery and final consumption levels, which in some instances gave rise to record stock levels of industrial metals on the London Metals Exchange.

The recovery in metal and oil prices should be seen in context, though. The sharp drop in prices rendered a significant quantity of global production uneconomical, resulting in substantial cutbacks in production already seen and planned for the next two to three months.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road of Gold, Peace And Prosperity / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProfessor Antal E. Fekete’s paper, The Marginal Productivity of Debt – Why Obama’s Stimulus Package Is Doomed to Failure, ends with the following paragraph: Indeed, the financial and economic collapse of the last two years must be seen as part of the progressive disintegration of Western civilization that started with government sabotage of the gold standard early in the twentieth century. Ben Bernanke, who should have been fired by the new president on the day after Inauguration for his part in causing irreparable damage to the American republic may, in the end, have the honor to administer the coup de grâce to our civilization.

Voices About Crude Oil, The New Gold / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are conflicting voices about oil.  Some say too much is available and demand is falling.  Others say demand is rising and reduced exploration will contribute to a new boom.  Some say oil is responding to the equities rally. Charts show oil with upward tendencies weeks before equities began to rise.

Here are some important media snippets with mixed bullish and bearish messages:
