The Gold Cycles: Short and Long Term Outlook / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKudos to gold and its ability to rally after what had been a stretch of fairly average action.  The mini breakout by gold has broken the long running series of lower Daily Cycle tops, a positive development that will need to be sustained if we’re to see Gold begin to move higher over time.  For now though, Gold has pushed into the extreme overbought areas which most often result in a decent sell-off and retracement into a Cycle Low.  Especially as this is the 3rd Daily Cycle, these tend to be volatile and erratic Cycles with significant gains, but with a tendency to give back much of the gains.

The Real Cause of High Oil Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNowadays the energy picture is confusing at best as the more information we are shown the more blurred our vision seems to become. Mixed messages, poor reporting and a media hungry to sensationalize anything it thinks can grab a headline have led to many wondering what the true energy situation is. We hear numerous reports on how the shale revolution will transform the energy sector, why alternatives are just around the corner, why advances in oilfield extraction techniques and new finds will help to lower oil prices. Yet no sooner have we read these rosy reports than we are bombarded with negative news on the Middle East, on why alternatives will never compete, on peak oil and declining oil production.

Start Your Own GOLD STANDARD / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The gold standard is a monetary system where the standard economic unit of account is a fixed weight of gold. The purpose of this system is to force responsibility onto the government and its fiscal policy. The United States abandoned ties to the gold standard in 1971, but has recently caught the attention of the political world due to the Republican party. However, as many market participants are showing, you do not need a political movement to start your own gold standard.

Prepare For Gold and Silver Sector Fireworks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

The Jackson Hole meeting is now upon us, a gathering of the worlds central bankers who will put their collective brain power to work in an attempt to resolve the economic woes that most sovereign states are now struggling to remedy.

As investors in gold and silver these meetings are important to us as they may provide us with clues as to what policy changes are are about to be unleashed upon us as they attempt to steer the world away from a global depression. The Federal Reserve is also charged with keeping unemployment low and so it needs to implement strategies that will hopefully boost the American economy.

Why You Should Invest in What China Needs to Buy / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. is no longer the safest place in the world to invest, says Don Coxe, a strategic advisor to the BMO Financial Group. While U.S.-based companies are forced to wade through red tape and legal challenges, relatively lax regulation in emerging economies created stiff competition. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Coxe explains how investors should position themselves as China and India rise to superpower status.

 

The Energy Report: You are famous for taking the long view of the political economy, Don. What does the machinery of history tell us about the likely future of the Western world as measured against the newly industrializing economies, including China, India and Brazil?

The Gold Standard Gets Another Look / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Republicans convene in Tampa to nominate Mitt Romney and hammer out their party platform, one of the planks that could attract the most attention is the Party's official position on the gold standard. As it is now being considered, the platform stops short of recommending a return to the gold standard, but does advocate a commission to consider the possibility. However, judging by the reaction with which many Republicans have greeted the idea, one would think that the platform might as well have called for the return of slavery.

Ignore the Crude Oil 40 Doom-and-Gloom Crowd / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Kent Moors writes: I just returned from a week down South with a few of my energy clients. It's good to get my hands dirty and remind myself firsthand what is going on at the project level of some of the country's top energy companies.

But when I returned home this weekend, I made the mistake of flicking on the television and opening the newspaper.
I can't believe that the pundits are now predicting that oil will fall to $40 a barrel. They also are projecting that the entire natural gas sector is going to collapse.

Gold First Mover Advantage / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the Investor Alert, our investment team shares charts and data that we believe provide readers with a first mover advantage. While markets don’t always move like we anticipate, recognizing historical trends can provide an edge if you act quickly.

Last week, gold bugs were rewarded with the long-awaited positive momentum in the yellow metal, and on Friday, bullion rose to about $1,670. After falling below the 200-day moving average, gold had been stuck in quicksand for several months. With the jumps in the price last week, bullion swiftly rose above this critically important long-term moving average.

Why Gold Investors Should Fear the Financial System / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe dire economic situation that persists globally despite the best efforts of central planners to make things seem normal leads Sprott Inc.'s legendary Chairman Eric Sprott to broadcast a loud message of caution: "Fear the financial system." In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Sprott says it's time for people to take matters into their own hands and that means pushing further and further into precious metals equities as well as physical gold and silver. With 80% of his own portfolio in that arena, he certainly puts his money where his mouth is.

 

The Gold Report: You've stated before that the price of gold should be above $3,200/ounce (oz) and the price of silver above $200/oz but market manipulation keeps both metals artificially low. Who is manipulating it?
