Why Governments Will Want Much, Much Higher Gold Prices Soon! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat governments will want - and will NEED - much, much higher gold and silver prices in the future is counter intuitive, given that they have done everything within their power till now to throttle back and to keep a lid on bullion prices. Let me explain why.

Although we have seen eleven consecutive years of gold bullion price rises, such increases have been incremental, measured and at levels which make the remainder of the commodities and equities markets look volatile.  Governments have used their preferred bullion banks as agents in the paper futures markets and their central banks, in conjunction with their respective Treasury bureaucracies, to limit the inexorable rise in precious metals prices as much as possible to keep gold - the only ‘real money’ - from drawing unfavorable attention to their own failing fiat currencies and uncontrolled sovereign debt.

World Food Supply Coming Global Angst / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Richard_Mills

Our agriculture system is concentrated on producing a very few staple crops - there is a very serious lack of crop diversity. Corn, wheat, rice and soy are the main staples and production is oftentimes half a world away from where the majority of the crop would be consumed. The world's extreme poor exist almost exclusively on what is a 'buy today, eat today' plant based diet - wheat, corn, soy or rice provide the bulk of their calories.

Currency Wars Are Driving Gold and Silver Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Over the weekend, talks between Greece and its private-sector creditors over debt write-downs were unsuccessful. Charles Dallara, the creditors’ lead negotiator, left Athens on Saturday as differences remained over the terms of new Greek bonds. Although a deal was not agreed upon, the market is signaling high expectations for a deal to be completed soon.

LNG Exports Won’t Save Natural Gas’ Slide / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: G_Joel_Chury

As the price of natural gas continued its free fall through last week, resulting in lows not seen since 2002, it’s no surprise that the price environment has chipped away at the big producers. Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) tipped its hand today, stating that it would pull back on its drilling activity by half and reduce production by 8% on account of low natural gas prices.

Gold, Financial Market Safe Havens / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the last year or so there has been a lot of commentary with respect to money flows from more risky investments like stocks, commodities and gold and into the so called safe havens like the US dollar and the 30-Year Treasury. That’s the message heard day and night on Bloomberg and CNBC and they bring in one expert after another to back them up. They’ll sit there and beg the question knowing full well what the answer is going to be. It always struck me as far fetched that paper assets emitted by the world’s largest debtor, and backed by absolutely nothing, could be considered a safe haven. Meanwhile gold has been money for more than three thousand years and it is considered to be risky, speculative and down right dangerous by the gurus that fill the airwaves with their prophecies.

Gold Confiscation, a Reality? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe issues facing the developed world's financial systems are ones of liquidity and solvency, among others. The assumptions of liquidity levels proved horribly incorrect! The request of the IMF to lift their resources from $380 billion to $980 billion and the currency swaps between the U.S. and Eurozone confirm that (these may still prove inadequate). Many markets, which reserve managers had considered to be deep and liquid, proved to be the exact opposite with assets-selling only at a large discount. This was even true of some AAA-rated assets, showing that credit ratings offered no effective guide to liquidity. Many central banks had to rely on bi-lateral currency agreements with other central banks, principally the US Federal Reserve.

Making Green Energy Credible / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCan we make green energy credible ? Not so much a victim of its own succees, but victim of its own failure, green energy still hangs on and hangs in among the mix-and-mingle of dominant government and elite ideologies in most OECD countries, and several G20 and Emerging economies led by China and India. One reason for this is really basic: there are no other ideas on the subject of "After we run out of cheap oil, what do we do ?"

Euro, Gold on the Move / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Purely from a technical perspective, let's notice that the Euro/US Dollar hit a one-week high this morning at 1.2985 off its low at 1.2620 (+2.85%). It has since corrected and turned up from 1.2890, which happens to be the recent upside breakout plateau of a two-week base-like formation that projects to 1.3080-1.3120.

Gold Stock Upleg Cycles / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite gold’s powerful secular bull over the past decade, gold stocks remain vexing to investors and speculators.  Though this metal’s miners have yielded truly colossal bull-to-date gains, they failed to leverage the record-high gold prices seen in much of 2011.  So naturally traders aren’t very enthusiastic about this sector at the moment.  But they sure would be if they understood the gold-stock upleg cycles.

Platinum’s Upside Potential / Commodities / Platinum

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are certain dogmas held sacrosanct by precious metals investors and one of them is that platinum is supposed to be more expensive than gold. That’s just the way it is. Quite a few eyebrows lifted and jaws dropped last fall when the yellow metals price overtook that of platinum. The historic switch took place on Sept. 2nd when Comex gold futures settled at $1,875.25 per troy ounce, just above platinum’s closing price of $1,873 per ounce. When you consider the price history of the two precious metals—platinum has traded at a $200 to $400 premium to gold—the reversal was astounding. Just to give you a better idea, before the 2008 Lehman Brothers crash, platinum was trading at more than $2,270 per ounce while gold was trading under $990 an ounce.

Gasland – More Drama Than Documentary, Don't Frack Me Up / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Marin_Katusa

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research writes: To many walking the planet, fracking has a seriously bad reputation. Thanks to hyperbole and misinformation, fracking opponents have convinced a lot of people that the operators who drill and then hydraulically fracture underground rock layers thumb their noses at and even hate the environment.

Anti-fracking claims may be twists on reality – for example, that a legislative loophole makes fracking exempt from the America's Safe Drinking Water Act, when really this federal legislation never regulated fracking because it is a state concern. Then there's the completely absurd, such as the idea that frac operators are allowed to and regularly do inject frac fluids directly into underground water supplies.
