Gold and the Middle East Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe year 2012 has been relatively peaceful compared with the past 10 years. The lack of military aggression on the part of the U.S. has led many to believe that the America's days of military adventures are over. But as we'll see here, 2012 is simply a temporary respite in a longer-term "theater" of war that has only just passed the opening act.

The past decade has indeed been one of near constant strife and turmoil. Starting with 9/11 and the U.S.-led NATO invasion of Afghanistan, and later Iraq, the 10 years between 2001 and 2011 were characterized by ceaseless warfare. The military invasions in the Middle East have been followed by civil and military uprisings in Egypt, North Africa and elsewhere in the region. By contrast, 2012 might be styled a "quiet" year for the Mideast. A withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq began in mid 2009 and formally ended in late 2011.

Why Stock Selection in Gold Mining is Paramount / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we alluded to last week, there is an overflowing amount of evidence that both the metals and the shares have bottomed. Price action, sentiment indicators and fundamentals more than confirm a market bottom. Does this mean the market is ready to zoom much higher? Not necessarily. The sector must contend with some overhead supply as well as repair technical damage that caused a loss of both short and long-term momentum.

Gold Mining Stocks Continue to Disappoint But Not For Long / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is an endless debate for investors interested in gold. Should they buy a direct play on the gold price, either gold bullion itself or even so-called paper gold with an ETF such as the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEArca: GLD)? Or should they invest into gold equities, particularly the larger, higher quality gold mining companies?

Which Way Will the Pendulum Swing for Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most fascinating aspects when watching a sporting event like the Olympics is the historical statistics highlighting the tremendous advances in athleticism over the years. In the spirit of the events this summer, BTN Research compared gold's advancement from the beginning of the games in Beijing to the London Olympics.

On the day of China's auspicious opening ceremonies on August 8, 2008, gold was $857.80 an ounce. By the time the world watched the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games, the precious metal had climbed to $1,617.90 an ounce. This represents a remarkable increase of 89 percent in four years.

Water, an Endangered Global Resource / Commodities / Water Sector

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur groundwater is being used up at record rates and claims to ownership are becoming increasingly contentious. It won't be long before the first water war begins.

There's a lot of water on the planet we inhabit - an estimated 326 million trillion gallons or 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters.

That makes it hard to believe that there are somewhere between 780 million to one billion people without basic and reliable water supplies and that more than two billion people lack the requirements for basic sanitation.

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen does a precious metal known for feeding off investors' fears need the opposite of fear to move higher? Answer: Right now!

Austin Kiddle, an analyst with bullion broker Sharps Pixley, asked the following question in a recent commentary: "Can fear refuel the investment demand for gold?" It's a question many investors are now asking and well worth addressing.

GOLD: Lover or Fighter? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

If there is one lesson that investors have learned in recent years, it is don’t fight central banks. The rally seen in equities since the lows of 2009 is now considered one of the most hated rallies in history. Analysts and pundits can debate macroeconomic conditions until blue in the face, but when central banks inject trillions of dollars into the financial system, the general trend tends to be higher. Precious metals have also benefited from monetary easing programs, but they are now finding out how hard it is to fight central banks.

Ah, the long, lazy, hazy days of summer: Here in Colorado, it's been a particularly hot and dry one, leading to one of the worst wildfire seasons in recent memory.

Is the Silver’s Move Above Its 50-day Moving Average a Bona Fide Buy Signal? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany metaphors have been used for gold but never to our knowledge has the price of gold been compared to the non-barking dog. (This refers to the Sherlock Holmes story, Silver Blaze and the "curious incident of the dog in the night-time." Holmes infers that the dog made no noise because the villain was someone the dog knew very well.)

Three Charts Every Gold Stock Trader Should See / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark writes: Everything is falling in place for a big gold stock rally...

So far this year, it's been tough to make money owning gold stocks. Every rally has been weak. Every subsequent decline has been steep. The big gold stock fund, GDX, for example is down 25% over the last 12 months.

This decline has made gold stocks very cheap... and ready to rally. Let me show you what I mean...

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleArgentina's nationalist leanings grabbed major headlines earlier this year, but Mackie Research Analyst Bill Newman says the conflict is unlikely to become a repeating trend with the majors and supermajors currently trolling for oil and gas in the country's Vaca Muerta shales. In fact, Newman expects newer policies to encourage foreign investment in energy exploration. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Newman explains why investors should keep an eye on the region and watch for major catalysts.

Natural Gas Prices Tick Up on Hot Weather But Investors Shouldn’t Expect Much More Upside / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFour months ago, natural gas bottomed out at a 10-year low of less than $2 per million British thermal units. Since then, the price has rocketed around, actually bursting over $3 in early July before backing off later in the month.

According to the US Dept of Energy (DoE), America’s inventories of natural gas are still running 20 percent above their five-year average. That’s despite the fourth-hottest summer on record, which drove demand for gas to generate electricity up 21 percent over 2011 levels.
