Gold Investor Fantasies Not an Investment Strategy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile having not read any research into the time devoted by people to fantasizing, we suspect that activity represents a significant portion of the day for many. Morning coffee for men involves the exchange of fantasies surrounding sporting events. We know not what women fantasize about during their coffee, but suspect it might include a discussion of how some man could be made better. While romantic fantasies are beyond our mandate here, we suspect most are more likely to occur than some of the investment fantasies observed in recent years. Fantasies are fine, but they are not investment strategies. Some investment fantasies of recent times have been:

Short Term Pullback in Brent Crude Oil Price Starts / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Donald_W_Dony

Brent prices have reached, for the short term, a peak. The Atlantic basin commodity has topped out at $128.40 and is now pulling back to the first support level of $120. The trigger for the expected retracement appears to be the US dollar.

Brent prices tend to trade in the opposite direction to the US$. And the Big dollar is beginning to rise again (Chart 1). The currency bounced off of the $0.782 support line in February and is now advancing to a target of $0.805.

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith more than 40 years as an economist to his credit and claiming gold as the "biggest position in my life," Gloom Boom & Doom Report Publisher Marc Faber assures us that gold is nowhere near a bubble phase, but cautions that corrections of 40% are not unusual in a bull market.

Will the Gold and Silver Smackdown Deter Investors? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Gold for April delivery fell $100 before closing down $77.10 and settling at $1,720 per ounce. Meanwhile, silver for March delivery plummeted $2.56 to close at $34.58 per ounce. Although this type of price action may seem troubling for newcomers, it is becoming routine for seasoned precious metal investors.

How to Put Yourself on the Gold Standard / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

While you may agree with me that the world desperately needs the gold standard, you may be equally convinced that the day global leaders embrace it is still a long way off. Fortunately, regular people no longer have to wait for the leadership to come to their senses. It is now possible for individuals to establish a personal gold standard using the world's first Gold Debit Card. The service, offered by my company Euro Pacific International Bank, allows users to save in gold but spend in local currency.

Gold Mining Margins / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe history of gold mining has been well-documented for thousands of years.  And with the demand for this most precious of metals going nearly as far back as human history, miners have ventured to just about every corner of the planet in their quest to find it.  Yet unlike the miners of yore that were commanded by kings, today’s miners are commanded by profits.

Like in any business, gold miners do what they do in order to make money.  If they can sell their product for more than what it costs to produce, then they ought to see profits.  But unlike any business, gold mining is a complex endeavor with a myriad of variables that can radically affect operations on virtually a daily basis.  This makes miners’ financial affairs far from cut-and-dry.

Nymex Crude Oil Looking Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The decline in nearby NYMEX Crude Oil prices from last Friday's high at 109.95 to yesterday's low at 104.84 returned the price structure to its prior multi-month upside breakout plateau at 104.50 (from Feb 19). This contained the selling pressure and attracted buying interest that then propelled oil above 107.00, in what looks like the completion of a near-term correction within the larger bull move off of last October's low at 74.95.
