Major Base Metals, Copper, Zinc, Nickel, Lead and Aluminum, Are All in the Midst of Spectacular Secular Bull Markets / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global commodities bull has sure been flexing its muscles in recent years. And this is a result of our growing world's insatiable demand for the hard commodities that feed widespread industrialization and modernization. Since these commodities are finite in nature, an economic imbalance has emerged that has showcased incredible market activity.

Supply has simply not been able to keep up with fast-growing demand. And when you have more capital chasing after fewer goods, prices are naturally going to rise. The industrial metals or base metals that are indispensably used in virtually every aspect of physical infrastructure, from structural to mechanical, have displayed this basic economic principle to the highest degree.

Uranium Stocks Neutral on Bad News - Technically Uranium with Merv / Commodities / Uranium

With the “bad news” one reads in the media about the rough time the largest uranium companies seem to be having it's a wonder that the Merv's Daily Uranium Index has not totally collapsed. However, cooler heads prevailed and the Index held it's ground. The Index lost 0.037 points or 0.75% on the day.

Goldman Sachs Manipulation of Commodity Prices - Gasoline and Crude Oil / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is still open season on Goldman Sachs. Ditto for JP Morgan and the clique of Wall Street firms, who enjoy untold tremendous privilege. Well, Goldman is at it again, playing games, abusing their role, and making money, all legally. One should say, rather, all without prosecution. One puts life and career at risk when revealing the hidden actions of the military and security organizations running in this land. However, taking aim at the Wall Street bank sector parasites is deemed a harmless exercise, regarded much the same as a fly or mosquito flirting around the USGovt torso. The ugliest example of illicit publicly noticed activity by Goldman Sachs in my opinion was the late summer 2006 change to the GS Commodity Index. They lowered the unleaded gasoline weight from 9% to 2%, forcing the sale of $7 billion in gasoline contracts. Nevermind motive, focus on execution. With $100 billion in indexed funds invested in the GSCI, Goldman knew what would happen. Gasoline fell sharply in price. GSax profited heavily, all legal, not even a prosecutable violation.

Exploding the Myth of Unbacked Silver Certificates and Phony Silver Storage / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExecutive summary

Analysts put their own construction on facts coming out of the class-action suit between Morgan-Stanley and 22,000 of its clients involving costs associated with the storage of precious metals. They jump to the conclusion that metal supposedly backing outstanding silver certificates does not exist and never has. Storing silver on clients' account is a farce. From this they conclude that the net short commercial interest in silver on the COMEX, allegedly naked, must further be increased by adding the amount of unbacked silver certificates and phony storage, which they conservatively estimate at one billion ounces.

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePreparing comments on any investment topic day before FOMC announces U.S. interest rate policy is probably a futile gesture. That the announcement comes on Halloween provides an opportunity for cutesy comments which will be avoided. However according to the UN FAO, the world consumed 18.774 million tonnes of pumpkins, squash and gourds in the latest reporting year.

Weakness Developing in Energy / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Crude Oil Nearing Major Peak / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Time to consult with the very long-term chart pattern in crude oil, from the December 1998 low at $10.35, which has a very bullish pattern, into today's high, but also a pattern that is in its final few percentage points of making a multi-month if not a multi-year high. All of the action off of the Jan 12, 2007 pullback low at $49.90 represents the final upmove in the larger 1998-2007 upleg. The relationships between the various legs during the most recent 10-month upmove point ot a target zone of $97 to $102, or an additional 4%-10% climb in crude oil prices prior to the anticipated peak and reversal.

Digital Nirvana And The Unfolding Mania In Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is set to move higher over the next few days towards $800 in a blow-off of the larger sequence since summer. This could send some precious metals stocks far higher than may be contemplated by some, where corrections would only take complex components back to current proximities. That being said, while such an assessment may or may not prove correct, one thing is for sure, anybody attempting to time inter-waves within larger sequences could find themselves left ‘standing at the station', unable to get back in without paying up. This of course will depend on how quickly the ‘cake eaters' (for our Italian friends) decide to debase fiat currencies around the world in preemptive monetary largesse.
