Profit from the Surge in Global Diamond Demand and Exploration / Commodities / Diamonds

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: The price of polished diamonds is rising at a rate of about 10% year over year, and the falling dollar could accelerate that surge. However, most diamond mining and exploration stocks haven't joined the rally in natural resource stocks over the past 12 months.

Together, I think those two facts mean there is the potential for significant upside in diamond stocks, a move that could come at a dizzying speed. And that's why I've been doing a ton of research on the industry, building on my trip to an Arctic diamond camp this past August.

Gold Bounces from 5% Loss as Dollar Gains, Eurozone Bonds Fall on Inflation Shocker / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES continued to plunge early Wednesday, bouncing off $792.50 as the Asian session ended – more than $43 per ounce (5.1%) below Monday's two-week top.

After the first hour of London trade, the Gold Price stood nearly 7% below the 27-year high of $845 hit on Nov. 7th. The sell-off following that attempt on gold's all-time peak – recorded back in Jan. 1980 at $850 – was both sharper and more severe than this week's drop so far.

What WIll Happen If Crude Oil Breaks Above $100? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: George_Kleinman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe following is an excerpt from Larry Livingston's book Reminiscences of a Stock Operator , which is based on the story of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest traders of all time.

When it got to 98 I said to myself, "Bethlehem is going through 100, and when it does the roof is going to blow clean off."

The tape said the same thing, more than plainly. In fact, it used a megaphone. I tell you, I saw 100 on the tape when the ticker was only printing 98. And I knew that wasn't the voice of my hope or the sight of my desire, but the assertion of my tape-reading instinct. I rushed to my broker's office and put in an order to buy 500 shares of Bethlehem Steel. I got them at 98 to 99.

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.

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!
