How the “Uncertainty Factor” Drives Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Despite a world of geopolitical tension, oil prices have remained steady.

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) has been holding in the mid $90′s, while Brent continues to trade in the low $100 range.

Mines That Run On Solar Or Wind Power / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

Mining companies are often seen as dinosaurs when it comes to making changes that will benefit the environment, but that perception may be shifting as some companies turn to renewable energy to cut costs and lighten their carbon footprint.

At first blush, mining and renewable energy seem incongruous. Mining's reputation as a voracious consumer of fossil fuels is well deserved, especially surface mining, where diesel-sucking haul trucks perform endless loops to and from gigantic pits scraped ever-deeper by immense earth-moving machines belching greenhouse gases.

Gold and Silver Trading Alert as U.S. Dollar Soars to New Highs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion no speculative positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are now justified from the risk/reward perspective.

The back-and-forth trading in the USD Index ended as it pierced through the short-term resistance and also above this year’s high. As we have emphasized many times previously, the U.S. currency is after long-, medium- and short-term breakouts so the surprises should be to the upside. Consequently, yesterday’s rally was not unexpected. What was surprising was the lack of real decline in the precious metals sector. Does this mean that the USD rally won’t hurt gold and silver investors? Let’s take a closer look (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

The US Gold in Fort Knox is Secure, Gone, or Irrelevant? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

In 1950 the US owned about 20,000 metric tons of gold - approximately 640,000,000 troy ounces. By August 15, 1971 when President Nixon "temporarily" closed the "gold window" that hoard had decreased to about 8,100 tons (Fort Knox, the NY Fed, and other locations). The US government had been overspending, exporting dollars oversees, and other governments had "cashed in" those dollars for gold. At that rate of decrease, the US gold hoard would have been entirely dissipated by now. Perhaps it is gone!

The US$ price of gold has soared +377% from 2001 to date. That’s a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) equal to 13.4%. Contrast gold’s monumental appreciation with the pathetic performance of the Shanghai Stock Exchange Index and the miserly return of US Treasuries.

Crude Oil Price Decline – To What Price? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Triple Digit Prices are Not Forever
In what is only superficially amazing at a time when Islamic insurgency, including Boko Haram in Nigeria and ISIS in Iraq may be threatening the state, civil society and the oil sector in major exporter countries, oil prices are declining quite rapidly. The “magic three digit” price level for oil - $100 a barrel  come rain or shine – has been seriously eroded for US WTI and may soon also be attacked for Brent. The major reason for this decline is sharper than expected and forecast decline in leading economic indicators for many large importer countries, including Japan and the EU28. Monthly oil import demand outturns for China and India are variable, but have suffered major contractions relative to previaling rates before 2010.

Why King Coal is Bigger than Oil or Gas / Commodities / Coal

By: Money_Morning

Lost in the debate about exporting U.S. oil and natural gas is any mention of America’s greatest energy export.

Coal.

And while legislators, corporations, environmentalists and others argue over pipelines, refineries, tariffs and trade agreements in the oil and natural gas industries, the U.S. sends tons of coal to eager customers all over the globe. Coal usage is at a 45-year peak, and Europe and Asia will take every ounce we can export…

Autocalls Syndrome In The Silver Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Submissions

François Lenôtre writes: Autocallable products, or “autocalls” are structured notes popular primarily in Asia but also, to a lesser extent, in Europe. They offer the buyer an enhanced coupon linked to the behavior of an underlying market. With rates currently so low, vast amounts of autocalls linked to equity and commodity markets have been sold to investors, enabling them to receive 10 to 15 % annual yields (sometimes more) with the risk of seeing their capital wiped out in case of a collapse of the underlying reference market.

Gold Stocks Major New Upleg / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

The gold stocks are almost certainly in the early stages of a major new upleg.  Given the widespread apathy and antipathy still plaguing this beaten-down sector, that’s hard for most traders to swallow.  But the gold stocks’ performance this year has already been outstanding.  And heading into gold’s strong season, their gains should only accelerate.  Gold stocks’ overdue mean reversion higher is well underway.

Gold and Silver Price Consolidation Before Fateful September / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Why could September be fateful for the precious metals complex? First, consider its history within the current secular bull market. The years 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2010 have seen very important breakouts in either or both Gold and gold stocks in the month of September. Conversely, September marked important peaks in 2008 as well as in each of the past three years! Currently, Gold and more so the gold miners are consolidating their recent gains just below very important resistance. This consolidation figures to end before the end of September which means September will produce another important inflection point.

America's First Oil Sands Producer and Other Natural Resources Surprises / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: The_Energy_Report

The natural resources space has been difficult in recent years. Potash prices collapsed, uranium spot prices hit a nine-year low, the gas market was in glut. Only oil has stayed strong. But Peter Epstein of MockingJay Inc. has found some gems in the resource rubble, and foresees better times ahead. In this interview, Epstein tells The Energy Report who stands to capture the graphite market, how to catch the next wave in potash, and offers his thoughts on when investors might catch a break in the uranium market.

The Energy Report: Why are you excited about the oil and gas space right now?

Yesterday, I shared my experience at the U.S. EIA 2014 Energy Conference last month in Washington D.C. In short, some of the smartest people in the industry, like Daniel Yergin, are projecting U.S. oil production could nearly double from today's levels within the next 20 years.
