Interest Rates and Commodity Cycles- What Makes a Bubble? / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Moe and Curly formed one of the most successful comedy trios in history, who rightfully so, went with the stage name The Three Stooges . Their routine was based on physical slapstick comedy applied to numerous stories and awkward situations. Their bumbling stupidity and lack of focus on any given situation made for entertaining comedy clips that spanned several decades of the 20th century. An example of their fine comedic routines can be seen in this clip titled Carpenters . To view an infinite supply of "The Three Stooges", simply enter this into the search bar on www.youtube.com and be prepared to be entertained for hours.

Gold Rally Failure Could be the Shorting Opportunity of the Year / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The rising trendline from the May low will be a crucial support... with the 50-day sma continuing its decline, the convergence at the trendline will create a crucial decision area that could lead to the new lows mentioned here for weeks. Some Fed members have indicated a desire to reverse their rate cuts aggressively, which seems an optimistic outlook. Greenspan's assurances notwithstanding, the possibility remains of the entire mess devolving into a deep recession.”~ Precious Points: Confirmation , June 02, 2008

By: Adrian_Ash

Crude Oil Sets New High Above $139; Gold Surges as Dollar Dives / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Jason_Simpkins

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude oil for July delivery traded at an all-time high of $139.12 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange today (Friday), after the U.S. dollar nosedived on speculation that the European Central Bank would raise its key lending rate and on worries that a bigger-than-expected spike in unemployment meant the U.S. economy was far weaker than feared.

For the day, July crude oil soared $10.75, or 8.4%, to close at an all-time high of $138.54. For the week, the contract climbed 8.8% on the NYMEX.

Why there is Speculation in Commodities / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: Congress is up in arms. And the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is on the warpath. Their target: Speculators in the natural resources market.

The CFTC said this week that it's investigating a dramatic rise in cotton prices from earlier this year. It also plans to tighten some rules that apply to investors in the broader agricultural futures markets. Those steps come just a few days after the regulatory body said it would investigate oil trading activity to see if prices are being manipulated.

By: Mike_Shedlock

Shura member calls for oil production curbs in Saudi Arabia .
Saudi Arabia's Shura council (parliament) will hold a series of meetings over the next two weeks to discuss a controversial proposal by a key member to curb oil production to save reserves for better prices, Saudi media reported. The council will listen to a report by deputy chairman of the Shura water and public utilities committee, Salim bin Rashid Al Marri, who will argue for cutting crude supplies to maintain the Kingdom's underground reserves.

Geothermal: A Hot New Power Source / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the global economy attempts to wean itself from dependence on oil, it will search for viable alternatives. Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet on the horizon that will replace petroleum. The solution for the next few decades will be a patchwork quilt of different technologies. The “alternative” energy sources like solar and wind are non-polluting, but they have serious limitations. While nuclear power will be important, it will not be the best solution for all energy needs.

Gold Stocks Show Bullish Divergence / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Morgan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is impossible to extrapolate anything from a single data point, however careful observation usually pays dividends especially when looking for certain clues that financial markets may signal. Today, Thursday June 5, 2008 I noticed that gold was down on the day and yet gold stocks were up. Silver actually had a rather positive day overall and many silver equities were up two to three percent on the day. Normally, when gold is off even slightly and gold stocks show mild strength it is a result of short covering. In fact this is most likely the cause of today's price action.

Crude Oil Bull Market Corrections / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWithout a doubt, crude oil is the most important commodity on our planet. Hypothetically if it vanished overnight, our entire modern world would collapse. No goods could move without the oil-derived transportation fuels, so virtually all trade would implode. Unlike nearly every other major commodity, there is just no economically-viable substitute for oil.

And the fundamentals driving oil's secular bull are unparalleled in their strength. As Asia awakens and enters the modern era, global demand for oil is rising relentlessly. Despite today's unprecedented prices, demand remains strong all over the world. And of course once oil is burned, it is gone forever.

Silver Conditions Ripe for a Major Uptrend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

The positive implications of silver's mid-May breakout from a pronounced bullish Falling Wedge downtrend channel have by no means been invalidated by the subsequent rather savage reaction that has got a lot of traders fooled into “thinking grizzly”. In the 1st place a post breakout reaction back to test support at the top of the downtrend channel is quite normal, and secondly the reaction has brought the price back down again to the zone of strong support shown on our 1-year chart, which is now being bolstered by the 200-day moving average rising into it.

Gold Ready to Begin Next Major Uptrend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is now in position to begin its next major uptrend, and in relation to where this uptrend is going to take it, it is considered to be at a very good price right now. According to the “Summer doldrums” crowd who are obsessed with seasonal factors, gold has to wait until August to go up, because everyone is preoccupied with Summer holidays, making the most of the good weather, pursuing pretty girls and looking after unruly kids released from the confines of school etc etc. Oh - is that so? - try telling that to Wall St traders who thought they were safe on the beaches of Long Island with their huge picnic hampers last August.

It's Not A Dollar Crisis- It's A Gold Crisis / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title is a bow to Peter Schiff for his admirable article It's Not an Oil Crisis: It's a US Dollar Crisis .

Thirty-five years ago gold, symbol of permanence, was chased out from the Monetary Garden of Eden, replaced by the floating irredeemable dollar as the pillar of the international monetary system. That's right: a floating pillar. The gold demonetization exercise was a farce. It was designed as a fig leaf to cover up the ugly default of the U.S. government on its gold-redeemable sight obligations to foreigners.

Gold Continues to Consolidation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold  closed at $ 880.50  in New York yesterday and was  down $1.80  and silver  closed at $16.84 and was up  5 cents .  Gold initially rose in Asia prior to selling off and has continued to sell off in European trading.

Gold continues to consolidate between $850 and $950 but the 200 day moving average at $875 and $850 look like providing strong support given the prevailing macroeconomic climate and the ever important supply demand fundamentals (see below).

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: In the mid-1500s, legend has it that Spanish explorers were traveling through the Guanajuato region of Mexico when they camped for the night by the side of a river. They piled stones in a circle and built a fire in the middle of the circle. During the course of the night, the heat of the roaring fire melted raw silver right out of the rock, leaving puddles of metal for the astonished explorers to discover in the morning.

The Spanish forgot their original mission and started looking around for the source of the silver-rich rock. They quickly found it, and that was the start of the silver town of La Luz.

Crude Oil Crisis Coming to an End? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that the financial system has been bailed out, it remains for the beleaguered consumer to be rescued from the doldrums he currently faces. When will the consumer finally be freed from the torment that is so prevalent out there? It shouldn't surprise you that the answer will come from today's most talked about culprit: the price of oil.

With oil and gasoline prices through the roof, food prices on the rise and concerns about the stability of the U.S. economy prevalent, it's no wonder that consumer sentiment is at a multi-decade low right now. Take a look at the latest chart below.
