When... Not if... Crude Oil Price Drops Below $70 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Since mid 2010 the oil industry was getting used to Brent averaging around $110. From then to mid 2014 share prices of Halliburton (HAL) Schlumberger (SLB), Hercules (HERO), Transocean (RIG) etc, went up by average 250%. By way of a benchmark for the collective enthusiasm in the idea of the irreversibility of Peak Oil, MODU (jack-up drilling rigs) utilization and day rates climbed into the champagne-all-round arena. According to IHS, a consultancy, there are 118 new ones being built so as to complement the current worldwide fleet of 550. About 40% of those are in China thanks in part to the 5% you used to be able to put down grace of the beneficence of the Bank of Chairman Mao...which incidentally has the smell of the dry bulk carrier enthusiasm seven years ago, also largely financed by the Bank of Chairman Mao.

Gold Benefits from Market Uncertainty / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The outlook for gold is now more positive than it has been for some time. After a prolonged period of low volatility as funds invested in ever-greater risk, markets have snapped and volatility has jumped. In short, we are swinging very suddenly from complacency to reality.

Financial markets hit a serious air-pocket this week, with a collapse in US Treasury bond yields in a dash-for-cash, illustrated in the chart below.

Three Ways to Play Uranium: Top Stock Picks / Commodities / Uranium

By: The_Energy_Report

Investors in the uranium space are like Goldilocks: They have three major ways to play, says David A. Talbot, senior mining analyst at Dundee Capital Markets. The Athabasca Basin entices with high rewards for high risks. U.S.-based in-situ recovery offers stable cash flow from stable operations. And companies challenged by current market prices that are positioning themselves smartly for an upswing also provide opportunity. In this interview with The Energy Report, Talbot explains the turbulent currents roiling the uranium space, and names eight players he thinks are positioned just right.

The Energy Report: David, the uranium spot price has recovered to a 52-week high of about $35 per pound ($35/lb) after nearly three months in the doldrums. What drove the rise?

  • Government became larger and more intrusive

Crude Oil Prices Continue to Define Geopolitics / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: STRATFOR

Editor's Note: Oil prices dropped steeply Oct. 14, with crude oil futures falling 4.6 percent to $81.84 per barrel -- the biggest decrease in more than two years. Brent crude dropped by more than $4 a barrel at one stage in the day, dipping below $85 for the first time since 2010. While these are relatively substantial drops, they are just one part of a continuing trend Stratfor has been tracking over the past few months. Factors behind the slump include weak demand, a surfeit of supply and the fact that many large Middle Eastern producers are reluctant to reduce their output.

King Coal Strikes Back at the Obama Administration / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: The latest salvo in the “Coal Wars” comes from the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE), and it’s aimed squarely at the Obama Administration.

Of course, the ACCCE isn’t exactly an impartial observer. In fact, you might say it has one huge dog in this fight.

Silver, Warfare and Welfare / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

US policies that promote warfare and welfare have produced massively increased debt, much higher consumer prices, larger government, and more central bank intrusion into the markets. And yes, higher silver and gold prices also resulted from these policies.

Fifty years ago we were bombing North Vietnam "back into the stone age" while also declaring a "war on poverty." The consequences of both "wars" have not been encouraging. Since then we have created considerable indebtedness by promoting such questionable ideas as a war on Iraq, a war on drugs and a war on terrorism. Future uses of national income and more debt could include a war on ebola, war on ISIS, and many other "wars."

How To Blow Up OPEC In 3 Easy Steps / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Raul_I_Meijer

It’s easily been longer than I care to remember that I first wrote it was only a matter of time before individual OPEC members would throw out the cartel’s agreements on prices and production, and just produce at full force and capacity, and then some. We may have seen that time arrive.

The underlying reason I first talked about it was two-fold. First: the economic crisis, which could lead to one thing only: less global demand. And second: the fast increasing wealth and population numbers in oil-producing nations which, as initially defined by Jeffrey Brown and Sam Foucher in the Export Land Model, has proven to be a much bigger factor in OPEC economies than people realized.

Powerful Reversal and Shakeout in the Junior Gold Mining Stocks at May Lows Around $33 / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Summary

  1. Three years ago in early 2011, I cautioned my readers to be careful to chase gold and silver higher as it was moving parabolic. Now it is oversold and ignored.
  2. Be careful now of parabolic rises in the S&P500 (SPY), Long term US Treasuries (TLT) and US dollar (UUP). Investors are scared and looking for liquidity.
  3. Silver (SLV) is trading below $17, Gold (GLD) is testing major support at $1200. The GDXJ has been outperforming and has not violated 2013 lows.
  4. If $1180 does not hold, gold (GLD) may test lower prices near $1050 as that is the approximate 50% retracement of the 2001-2011 bull market.
  5. Some smart traders are expecting a triple bottom at $1180 on gold with a bounce off current oversold levels with a small pullback in December for tax loss selling.
  6. Junior Gold Mining ETF (GDXJ) Makes Bullish Reversal at May Lows around $33.

Why Overpriced Crude Oil Failed / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Forget the Secret Deals
US-Saudi petrodollar recycling or the "Secret Deal" between the USA and Saudi Arabia dating from the early 1970s and heavily associated with Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, the US Treasury  Dept and US Federal Reserve was anything but a secret deal, and public domain information on this system is easily available. Ultra basically, petrodollar recycling worked best with high oil prices. The long slump of oil prices through 1986-2002, was basically engineered, at its beginnings, by Saudi Arabia with full US support to deny revenues to Khomenei's Iran in its 1980-88 war against Saddam Hussein's Iraq, seen by the Sunni-dominated Gulf States as holding back the Islamic revolutionary Shia of Iran. Saudi Arabia certainly did not profit from low oil prices and after the period of 1974-86, it consistently reduced its deposits of "windfall gain" petrodollars in the US Fed Reserve system.

Gold And Silver Still No End In Sight / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

Miscellaneous, with a central not-so-apparent binder. Do they relate to gold and silver? In a way, yes.

At the end of September, Yahoo ran a picture of Putin along side of Stalin. No too much in the way of suggestive association at play here by the media intent on pleasing the elites and federal government. The caption was what the two have in common, both from Russia certainly being one. What we know for sure is that neither ever won a Nobel Peace Prize, and neither has been responsible for inciting wars all across the globe and bombing other countries into submission, so Obomba is one-up on them in that regard, but his photo did not appear in the line up.

Gold and Silver Getting a Temporary Reprieve / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Gold closed last week below $1200 for the first time but has since rebounded from support at $1180. Silver has also rebounded but only after declining in 11 of the past 12 weeks. Precious Metals endured a very rough September and became very oversold. With Gold near its daily low and the gold miners (HUI, GDX) near their December lows, a rebound was probable. Precious metals bulls need to stay patient and disciplined as we believe this is an oversold bounce in a sharp downtrend until proven otherwise.

This week has seen highly volatile equities (mostly down), bond yields sharply lower, the oil price hard down, and gold side-lined but recovering after a miserable month or two. On the news front, the S&P rating agency reminded us that Greece is likely to default, Germany released some horrible industrial production numbers, and the Federal Open Market Committee unexpectedly released dovish minutes. So what’s it all about?

Crude Oil Price War - A Calculated Saudi Move Aimed At America / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: In 280-279 B.C., the Epirian King Pyrrhus defeated the Romans in two consecutive battles. But he suffered such a large number of casualties that his army could no longer carry on the fight.

Ever since then, the term “Pyrrhic victory” has become synonymous with winning at too high a cost.

These days some are beginning to wonder if the Saudis are marching down the same road.

The Fourth Central Bank Gold Agreement - Started 27-9-2014 - What Gives? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

On 19th May 2014, the European Central Bank and 20 other European central banks announced the signing of the fourth Central Bank Gold Agreement. This agreement, which applies as of 27 September 2014, will last for five years and the signatories have stated that they currently do not have any plans to sell significant amounts of gold.

Collectively, at the end of 2013, central banks held around 30,500 tonnes of gold, which is approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. Moreover, these holdings are highly concentrated in the advanced economies of Western Europe and North America, a statement that their gold reserves remained an important reserve asset, a statement made in each of the four agreements since then.
