By: Ben_Traynor

Gold Bull Market Bigger than Ever / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe recently wrote about the difference between gold’s price and its value, demonstrating a significant difference between the two. We asked many fundamental questions which show whether or not the gold price is proximate to its value. The answer was it was not.

Late last year we wrote of the on-going ‘Gold Wars’ between so-called industry experts and gold investors. We repeatedly found ‘experts’, who write in the mainstream media, were calling the end of the gold bubble whenever the price of gold dipped slightly.

Poland Gives Green Light to Massive Natural Gas Fracking Efforts / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is perhaps no more controversial energy source after nuclear than "hydraulic fracturing," or "fracking," of subterranean shale deposits containing pockets of natural gas.

While the process can liberate previously unusable sources of natural gas, political, environmental and scientific concerns have risen along with production, as evidence mounts that fracking is responsible for everything from polluting subterranean aquifers to causing regional earthquakes.

Commodity Wars, Why Trade Milk When You Can Buy the Cow (Cheaply)? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs you may recall, I was speaking about the Currency War long before it became a recognized issue. From my analysis of history and the major monetary trends it seemed inevitable even in 1999, and events shortly after that confirmed it.

Those who see what is going on behind the scenes are securing supplies of key commodities and hard assets. And this is not limited to the large national banks and financial firms.

Silver And The Shift To Measuring Wealth In Ounces Instead Of Dollars / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Hubert_Moolman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt-based monetary system creates an illusion of wealth. It allows for claims on real goods to significantly exceed the actual amount of real goods. You then have a number of people believing they have wealth, since they have claims (pieces of paper or tokens) showing that they have these real assets, whereas, in reality, if everyone was to claim the real goods, there would not be enough to go around.

The Coming Disruption In Rare Earths / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

In December 2011, the US Department of Energy (DoE) released the 2011 ‘Critical Materials Strategy’, a report that examines the role of materials such as rare earth metals in the ‘clean energy economy.’ The report cautions that the US runs the risk of facing disruptions in its short-term rare earth supply chain until 2015 at least. Shortage of five critical rare earth minerals—dysprosium, europium, neodymium, terbium and yttrium—could create expensive interruptions in the production of electric vehicles, wind turbines and energy-efficient lighting.

Have Your Heard of Graphene? / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

Graphene was discovered about seven years ago in Britain and since then, the material has been generating tremendous attention. The wonder value of the material is extraordinary—it is 200 times stronger than steel and tougher than diamond yet almost invisible and weightless; it stretches like rubber and is a better conductor of heat and electricity than copper. In fact, some researchers claim it is the most important substance created since synthetic plastic a century ago!

Great Deals on Gold and Silver 2012 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGoldMoney Founder and Chairman James Turk knows how to find great deals on gold and silver. He claims that the 2012 bottom for gold came during the first week in January. If the year's low is already history and if his projection that gold will hit the $2,000/oz mark within three months is on target, you do the math. "Gold is way too cheap," he tells The Gold Report in this exclusive interview.

Facebook IPO, Dollar, Gold Doesn’t Care! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe media is all excited about the announcement of the Facebook IPO, treating it as if it’s the second coming of sliced bread. At its anticipated IPO later this year, Facebook will be three times more expensive than Google was at its IPO — and nearly 40 times more expensive than the average large IPO of the last four decades. The valuation metric that some analysts chose to focus on is the price-to-sales ratio (PSR). Of course, it’s too early to know for sure what Facebook’s will be when it comes to market, since its offer price hasn’t been set. But, based on the early reports that Facebook will be valued at its IPO at as much as $100 billion, and 2011 revenues of $3.8 billion, Facebook’s PSR will be around 26. In order to produce a profit stream that is great enough to support a prayer of its stock doing even close to as well as Google’s did in its first few years of life, Facebook’s revenue growth will have to be several orders of magnitude greater, or have a profit margin that is several times greater — or both.

Corruption In Fascist Business Model, Gold Coil Ready / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFew can define fascism. Many cannot recognize it. History provides shocking stories of its past episodes. But its root structural feature is the tight relationship between the state and large corporations of a nation, which permit enormous fraud and lead to grand inefficiency, even while aggression and war accompany its handiwork in an ugly fabric weave. Nowhere is the bond more scummy and corrupt than with the banking industry, not in general but in Wall Street where defense of the USDollar has come. That defense was contracted from the USGovt to Wall Street, whose ties developed into a vast network of corruption. That cozy relationship led to the gutting of Fort Knox and its gold bullion in the 1990 decade of so-called prosperity. The 0% gold leasing resulted in vast speculation schemes, private multi-$trillion profit, and absent collateral for the USDollar itself.

Gold Surges 13.9% in January / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Pete_Grant

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold had a rather stellar January, posting a 13.9% monthly gain based on the LBMA PM fixings of 1531.00 on 31-Dec-11 and 1744.00 on 31-Jan-12. That's a bigger gain than the yellow metal achieved for the entirety of last year!

Last week — when gold was up less than 10% for the month — Bloomberg came out with a story noting that this was the best start to a year since 1980. Indeed gold did rally smartly in January 1980, but it also put in a nominal 27-year high that month. Should today's investors be worried that a similar fate awaits them? I think not.

What Made Gold Break Out? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Last week, gold broke through heavy overhead resistance, as did silver, to look very positive for the days ahead. Many technical analysts didn't feel that gold had that kind of momentum but then came the break. It wasn't a struggling break; it was robust sweeping resistance aside as though it wasn't even there.
