Silver Price Slammed Lower / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jesse

“He did not care for the lying at first. He hated it. Then later he had come to like it. It was part of being an insider, but it was a very corrupting business.”

Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

The slam on silver seems to coincide with the ADP Report which was better than expected. Just now the ISM Manufacturing number showed a contraction at 49.8, so now it can go up again? Read full article... Read full article...

Global Conditions Conspiring For A Swift Upswing in Uranium Prices / Commodities / Uranium

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2011 China generated 82.6 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity from nuclear power stations, about 10% of the 800 billion kilowatt-hours US reactors produced in 2011.

China’s insatiable appetite for electricity will continue to drive the nuclear renaissance. Although the country currently produces less than 2 percent of its electricity needs from nuclear power, this percentage will increase rapidly in coming years to keep pace with demand that’s growing at an average annual rate of 10 percent.

Rising U.S. Food Prices are About to Eat Away at Your Savings / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Gersten writes: As U.S. households prepare for Recession 2013 , they'll have trouble saving as one constant expense is starting to take a sharp climb: food prices.

Higher U.S. food prices are the last thing the country needs as 2013 is set to bring with it a painful bunch of tax increases and the ominous fiscal cliff, but U.S. consumers need to understand that their grocery bills are about take a much bigger chunk out of their wallets.

U.S. Heat Wave Won't Propell Natural Gas to $8 in 2012 / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Energy Department reported that natural gas in storage grew by 26 billion cubic feet to 3.189 trillion cubic feet for the week ended July 20. The inventory level was 15.8% above the five-year average of 2.754 trillion cubic feet, and 18% above last year's level. Low natural gas prices in the U.S. this year has not only tanked the stocks of many gas-weighted producers, but also dragged down profits of U.S-based oilfield services companies as a result of reduced gas drilling activity (See Chart Below).  However, since hitting a 10-year low of below $2/mmbtu in April, Henry Hub benchmark prices has surged 69% hitting $3.214/mmbtu on Monday, July 30, the high of the year.

Gold at ECB: Accident or Strategy? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the euro was launched, the European Central Bank (ECB) held approximately 15% of its assets in gold. That ratio has remained reasonably stable, giving rise to a variety of chatter, including suggestions that it may displace the U.S. dollar. We pursue the question on whether the ECB’s gold holdings are an accident or strategy.

Gold And Silver Await The Starting Gun / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

This week is another political week in that we have meetings across the board involving the ECB and the Federal Reserve followed by the job numbers on Friday. All of these meetings, summits, announcements have an effect on the investment community in that investment funds tend to stay on the sidelines until the direction of the markets becomes clear. Alas, we suspect that by the end of this week the anticipated clarity will be as clear as mud.

Will a Stocks Bear Market Hurt Gold Stocks? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe relationship between gold stocks (while in a secular bull market) and the broad market (while in a secular bear market) is difficult to diagnose and that is what makes it so interesting. There is no single rule of thumb or axiom we can trust because history is quite varied. There are instances of the gold stocks crashing with the stock market, rising with the stock market and rising substantially while the stock market endures a nasty bear market. Currently, the gold stocks are moving into the latter stages of their third secular bull market in the last 90 years. Yet, the equity market could be at risk of soon entering a cyclical bear market. In this article, we review some history between the gold stocks and the equity market before drawing conclusions relevant to the near future.

Gold and Silver Lessons from Pawn Stars / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Despite being in a bull market for the past decade, precious metals are still widely under-owned by historical standards. The percentage of wealth held in gold and silver today fails in comparison to the last bull market thirty years ago. The investing world is heavily skewed towards paper assets, as traditional education methods focus on these types of investment vehicles far more than others. However, investors looking to diversify away from equities and bonds can learn about hard assets such as gold and silver if they watch close enough.

Why Is Future Silver Supply More at Risk than Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Steve_St_Angelo

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe focus of the markets and the alternative media is firmly placed on the continued disintegration of the world financial system.  Many believe that the collapse of the fiat monetary system along with the global banking cartel is the worst possible outcome.  However, this may actually turn out to be the good news in a sea of bad news that is lurking around the corner.

As the world's attention is currently directed at its massive paper-debt dilemma, a physical problem looms larger each passing day.  This is what I call, the brontosaurus in the living room.  The information provided in this article may help connect the dots to the reader who has been grossly misinformed by the highly specialized analysts in the various industries and media.
