Rising Demand for Corn As a Biofuel and From Asia / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Agri-Food commodities are an essential part of our lives. Nearly every hour of our waking day we come in contact with something derived from corn. We eat it, drink products made from it, write on paper made with starch, and are now trying to fuel our cars with it. However, competition for corn has greatly increased. Rising consumer demand, driven by expanding incomes in China, and an attempt to expand biofuel production have driven prices up from about $1.75 a bushel two years ago. Will the price of corn soon take out the most recent high? Will state bird of Nebraska be changed to the Lexus?

Precious Metals Bull Market - Why Silver Is About To Take Over For Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Dollar ($) is losing its global reserve currency status, and the rate at which this is occurring is accelerating in direct proportion to easy money policy of the Fed. As with the $'s reaction to the Fed's policy decision, any further administered rate cuts will be met with an accelerating decline in the $, along with unfavorable and opposite reactions in market rates. This is why gold was able to slice through $800 easily Friday, because the commercial shorts (banks) are the same people who are exposed to trillions of Structured Investment Vehicles (SIV's), Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDO's), and various other forms of toxic waste; and they are discovering a direct bailout may not be forthcoming. This in turn cranks up the need for even easier money policies of course, which is why neither gold nor the $ ever correct much on trend, and is a condition that will be with us for some time considering the banks have only come clean with approximately 5-percent of their true exposures to toxic debt. This is why gold could vault to $1,000 and beyond by Christmas.

Gold Long-term Bull Market Uptrend Remains Intact / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

It was a shortened week but still a good one. A bounce off the intermediate term moving average line places gold in a good position to continue the rally.

GOLD : LONG TERM
The rally since August had reached the initial projection of $840 a few weeks ago and the new target is now $915. After reaching that initial projection gold reacted lower for a couple of weeks but bounced back to the up side this past week. As seen on the intermediate term chart, gold bounced off its intermediate term moving average line, still far above its long term line. Although the long term P&F chart has reversed its plotting direction it is still far away from reversing its bullish trend.

Rush to Gold as Global Banking Crisis Unfolds / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

This week saw the $ cross the $1.48 line to the € heading for $1.50 after the U.S. markets closed for Thanksgiving. It then bounced after the London market had opened on Friday. We do expect a bounce, but not for long as a secondary phase of the crisis comes into play. What crisis, you may well ask? It is the sub-prime crisis/credit crunch/$ crisis as it spreads into the global economy [as well as inside the U.S. of A.]

Gold Peaked, Euro Peaking, Dollar Rallying / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Not only does my work tell me that the GLD (Gold ETF) has peaked, it also is telling me the Euro may have hit a signficant high, and is ripe for a significant downside correction, which will pressure the gold as well...Today's conspicuous test of 150.00 is followed by what so far represents a key downside reversal amidst very significant momentum failures to confirm new highs since the 1.4600 area. Caution is the watch-word for the euro vs dollar now, which should impact gold prices negatively in the days ahead.

Will the Gold Bull Market Deflate? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf course not. Ever tried deflating a balloon that hasn't been blown up yet? Kind of hard to do, isn't it?

When we think and talk about things, we often unknowingly accept and attach misleading labels to them, without giving it any thought at all. It's sort of a "garbage in, garbage out" principle. We accept a label others have unthinkingly given a subject, and then we run with it, which means by necessity that we are misapplying it.

Poor, Poor Investors & Analysts Who Have Blinders On To Real Inflation Adjusted Returns / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Investmentscore.com

As an investment, we do not favor gold and silver over US stocks or US stocks over gold and silver, but rather we believe that all investments are cyclical and that recognizing and investing in the long term trend is the key. However, in our opinion bypassing the distorting effects of inflation for a clearer perspective of the markets real performance is the secret.

Commodities Supercycle Metals and Mining's Merger Mania! / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes:Australian mining giant BHP Billiton's stunning $149 billion bid for rival Rio Tinto — a combination that would control more than one-third of the world's iron sales — shows what we'll likely see in natural resources for at least the next 12 to 18 months — merger and acquisition activity escalating into a frenzy.

Already, a five-year rally in metals prices has spurred more than 1,448 takeover offers in the mining industry (with a value of about $185.7 billion) in just the past 12 months!

Uranium Stocks Maintain Bearish Intermediate Term Trend / Commodities / Uranium

I guess we should give thanks for small mercies. That's one up day in a row, maybe we can go for two. The Merv's Daily Uranium Index closed higher by 0.051 points or 1.18%. In uranium terms that's not so hot. Of the 50 component stocks we had 20 that closed higher, 24 that closed lower and 6 that were unchanged. Of the five largest stocks by market value, Cameco gained 2.2%, Denison gained 0.1%, Paladin lost 0.3%, UEX gained 1.8% and Uranium One gained 1.0%.

Gold in Second Gear - US Fed Out of Gas! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Alex_Wallenwein

As observed in August , gold has broken out of its first gear and ratcheted into second gear back in early 2006, not long before its top for that year. Although it broke down in May of '06, it has steadfastly remained atop its then-established bottom trendline, which was the upper limit of the bull market's "first gear" stage.

When the August "Gold Uptrend" article was published, this second gear was merely a possibility, based on the latter observation (i.e., that it never dipped significantly below its former uptrend ceiling. The recent top near $850/oz last Friday has now confirmed that formerly theoretical second gear stage as a valid second trend channel piggybacking right on top of the first gear stage.

GOLD THOUGHTS - Gold is in a Structural Bull Market - Buy On Corrections / Commodities / Gold & Silver

So, OPEC finally figured out what the western world has been doing to them. Oil producers have been swapping oil for green pieces of paper. Suddenly, they discovered the intrinsic value of those green pieces of paper, the market value of the paper and ink. Only governments can take paper, cover it with ink, and make it worthless.
