As The Euro Tumbles, Spaniards Look To Gold Bars / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJ. Luis Martin writes: The unremitting deterioration of the eurozone's sovereign debt landscape continues to fuel uncertainties about the longevity of the euro as a strong currency. Such uncertainties are not only leading to capital flight from the EMU's periphery to the core and destabilizing markets worldwide, but they are also beginning to frighten southern European savers into seeking refuge outside their 10-year-old currency.

Gold Bugs and Anti-Gold Bugs, It's a Fight for Civilization / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recent article by David Weiner on the MarketWatch site reminded me of just how weak the economic arguments against the gold standard are. Its title: "A Fool's Gold Standard." I examined this article here.

The arguments by American critics of a gold standard all rest on this unstated presumption.

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Niehuser, founder of Beacon Rock Research, incorporates his banking school background into his mining industry analysis. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he assesses the macroeconomic situation from a banker's perspective, explains why he is convinced gold is ready to take off and shares the names of companies poised to profit from mining in the northwestern United States.

 

The Gold Report: You were at the Pacific Coast Banking School last Friday when gold prices dipped and then surged on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's comments. Why are you attending banking school?

Gold Stocks Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter weathering a long consolidation followed by a major correction, gold stocks remain deeply out of favor today.  But this bearish sentiment is slowly yielding as gold powers higher in its usual autumn rally.  Gold stocks are starting to show signs of life again.  And after their strong advance since late July, they are now on the verge of a major upside breakout.  Odds are this event will herald a major new upleg.

Commodity Investing in a Time of Rising Resource Nationalism / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Ever-deeper, ever-further” has been the mantra of major natural resource producers over the past decade, as emerging Asia has replaced the US as the world’s single biggest consumer and driven demand to new heights.

This unprecedented expansion hasn’t always driven up costs. In fact, major producers of everything from copper to platinum are uncovering some of the richest reserves yet seen with their massive investment. That’s helped keep a lid on companies’ overall production costs, which in turn has aided further investment. It has, however, elevated resource nationalism risk to heights not seen since the 1970s, when countries such as Chile expropriated assets from investors domestic and foreign.

The Anti-Gold Fool / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Weidner wrote a piece for MarketWatch: "Fool's Gold Standard."

It was standard stuff, i.e., a combination of economic stupidity, attempted cleverness, and the rhetoric of contempt.

It deserves my special treatment, which I reserve for mainstream media journalists who hate the idea of a world not run by the Federal Reserve and who try to be clever. Weidner is not clever.

The Chinese Steel Production Paradox / Commodities / Steel Sector

By: Anthony_David

With demand for steel on the wane, producers across the world have reported losses or sharp drops in profitability. The slowdown in the steel market has been attributed to the slowdown in the Chinese economy, the ongoing euro zone crisis and a sluggish U.S. economy. Though China, the largest consumer of steel has taken measures to boost its economy, it is not expected to result in an increased demand for steel in the short term.

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe WHOLESALE gold price reached new 6-month highs in Asian and London trade Thursday morning at $1713 per ounce, rising alongside most other financial assets as traders awaited the European Central Bank's latest policy decision – widely expected to unveil a quantitative easing-style program of buying weaker government bonds.

Gold Price Breakout - But Don't Look for the Gold Standard to Be Reinstated / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the first time in over 30 years, talk of a return to the gold standard has become part of mainstream politics in the United States. Part of the official Republican policy adopted it at the recent Republican Convention and called for the commission to look at reestablishing the link between gold and the U.S. dollar. No doubt that plank was added to soothe supporters of Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

The printing press is running hot, but where is inflation and how will it affect gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe key to understanding inflation lies in the implications of an increasing money supply. Here at Global Gold, we rely on the “True Money Supply” which is provided by the Mises Institute. The “True Money Supply” was originated by Murray Rothbard and represents the amount of money in the US economy that is available for immediate use in exchange. On the chart below you see that the True Money Supply has accelerated at a faster rate in the past couple of years; it is currently in an exponential growth phase. Even if one takes the official data published by the US Fed, the evolution looks similar: since 2000, the Fed balance sheet has increased fivefold.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold's latest rally - and the dollar's recent decline - has the investing world buzzing with speculation as to the meaning behind it. Convention wisdom says that gold senses another round of loose money on the part of the world's leading central banks.
