Which Way Will the Pendulum Swing for Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Water, an Endangered Global Resource / Commodities / Water Sector

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur groundwater is being used up at record rates and claims to ownership are becoming increasingly contentious. It won't be long before the first water war begins.

There's a lot of water on the planet we inhabit - an estimated 326 million trillion gallons or 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters.

That makes it hard to believe that there are somewhere between 780 million to one billion people without basic and reliable water supplies and that more than two billion people lack the requirements for basic sanitation.

GOLD: Lover or Fighter? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

If there is one lesson that investors have learned in recent years, it is don’t fight central banks. The rally seen in equities since the lows of 2009 is now considered one of the most hated rallies in history. Analysts and pundits can debate macroeconomic conditions until blue in the face, but when central banks inject trillions of dollars into the financial system, the general trend tends to be higher. Precious metals have also benefited from monetary easing programs, but they are now finding out how hard it is to fight central banks.

Ah, the long, lazy, hazy days of summer: Here in Colorado, it's been a particularly hot and dry one, leading to one of the worst wildfire seasons in recent memory.

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark writes: Everything is falling in place for a big gold stock rally...

So far this year, it's been tough to make money owning gold stocks. Every rally has been weak. Every subsequent decline has been steep. The big gold stock fund, GDX, for example is down 25% over the last 12 months.
