Trading Gold Using Gold Stocks as an Leading indicator / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI find from time and time that gold stocks tend to lead the price of gold during extreme times and as I mentioned in last weeks report the HUI index has warned us up to 7 days in advance, before gold made sizable drop. Well this week is a perfect example in my opinion.

The charts below show how gold stocks became bearish much quicker than the price of gold indicating we should see lower gold prices soon. This time the HUI index gave us 5 days advance warning that gold will eventually drop quickly to catch up and the chart below show this.

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust what is the link between retail gold coin prices and the apparent manipulation of gold futures & options...?

Fuel Cell Cars Provide New Uses for Rhodium, Platinum / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Mac_Slavo

The recent price lows of Rhodium ($1200 an ounce) suggest that investors are worried about its future needs in car manufacturing. Rhodium, a noble metal, is primarily used in catalytic converters for combustion engine vehicles. Because of the recent down-turn in the auto industry, investors have stayed away from the metal over concerns of reduced usage in manufacturing.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChange is never easy and extreme change is the most difficult of all - Twelve years ago, the esteemed Financial Times in an editorial announced The Death of Gold ; and, in 2004, another contributor to FT noted, the end of gold as an investment has come a little closer .

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recently published story by independent columnist Lynn Cohen-Cole recently, Monsanto Investigator in Illinois Laughs They Are Doing ‘Rural Cleansing'  , reports that Monstanto has begun serving warrants on seed cleaners. Though not a well-known profession outside of farming, seed cleaners basically take left over plant material and seperate out the seeds for use in the next season.

Gold and Silver Physical Bullion Rationing / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is marginally lower today despite sharply weaker oil prices (Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - FEB09 : -5.14%) and a slightly higher dollar (US DOLLAR INDEX: 83.01 +0.6%).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOpen The Mint To Gold! - Could a Private Firm Force the Government to Do It?

People ask: "Isn't the Mint already open to gold, producing Gold Eagles and Buffaloes?" Opening the Mint to gold has a technical meaning, namely, opening it to the free and unlimited coinage of gold on private account. The Gold Eagles and Buffaloes are produced on Treasury account in limited quantities and sold at a premium as souvenir coins. It is a ploy to show that gold coins would just not circulate as money. Well, they would if there was no premium and the market was saturated.

Precious Metals Investing: Gold or Platinum / Commodities / Platinum

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Au” and “Pt” may be dull chemical elements, but gold and platinum have certainly played their respective parts during the unfolding of the financial crisis. Revisiting the metals' movements, it is clear from the table below that gold's decline was much smaller than that of platinum - as platinum suffered from the deterioration in the auto industry - but the recovery of gold has also been lesser than that of platinum.
