The Potential for Gold Stocks in 2013-2014 / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are two drivers of stock prices: valuation and earnings. Valuations are very much driven by investor sentiment while earnings are driven by revenue and margins. In recent months we've devoted some time to the three phases of a bull market. These are the stealth phase, wall of worry phase and participation or bubble phase. Earnings rise in each stage while valuations only increase in the first and last phase. The average gold producer has made no net progress in five or six years because the average valuation has declined considerably. Going forward, this means opportunity.

Nat Gas Ready To Pop? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNat gas (UNG) has recently caught my attention. While it was in a significant downtrend for the better part of a year it has recently been consolidating right under the $20 level. A look at the daily chart shows a long move down and then recently a sideways consolidation pattern. While this is typically a continuation pattern I am beginning to believe think that the next move may be up rather than an extension of the previous down trend.

And we should not forget Carl Jung, who wrote the seminal work Psychology and Alchemy (for those who do not sleep or are looking for something to put you to sleep: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychology_and_Alchemy).

The Big Problem for Energy Investors / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMatt Badiali writes: Oil prices are going to fall lower than you can imagine.

They've already dropped from nearly $110 a barrel in February to under $80 late last month. They've since staged a recovery to the $85 area. But the drop is not over. In fact, I think there could be more than 50% downside from these levels.

Gold Stocks: Bottom, Re-Test, Launch? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThough I favor physical Gold held outside the banking system that can't get MF Global'd over those paper Gold derivatives known as Gold stocks, there are times when a speculative opportunity presents itself that cannot be ignored (at least not by me). Now is such a time in Gold stocks. In my last post, I welcomed a new cyclical Gold stock bull market. I continue to believe a new cyclical Gold stock bull market has already begun and we are now completing (if we haven't already) the re-test of the mid-May, 2012 lows. What comes next? The launch!

Gold Under the Gun / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo matter how hard global central bankers try to inflate away the intractable debt-bomb that continues to explode in slow motion, they just cannot seem to make any headway.

The folly of QE-1 and QE-2 have done nothing but exacerbate the contrived bubble in monopoly bonds, which is the only fuel known to financial alchemists that enables a fraudulent debt-based Wall Street-Washington-Centric and global economy to function.

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt may look as if almost any mining stock you see these days is a bargain just waiting to be plucked. While most stocks have seen major drops from their highs and some are showing significant price turns, others have more downside left and a few just won't make it to the next market peak. Ivan Lo, publisher of The Equedia Weekly Letter, takes both a macro view of market and economic conditions and then carefully studies the specifics of each stock he decides to follow or acquire. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Lo talks about the critical factors that can separate a mega-winner from a rollback candidate and talks about some of his favorite names.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: Doug Casey told me in January, "The only thing that scares me is that central banks are buying a lot of gold; they're historically contrary indicators."
