Debunking Some Gold Bug Forecasts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI must confess I am a gold bug both philosophically and in terms of investing. We are entering a golden age for Gold as the bull market is destined to reach amazing heights and real and honest money reemerges as legal tender against fiat currencies that will soon be at the mercy of a sovereign debt crisis. All this being said, I take issue with some headlines listed here in friend Gary’s blog and some gold bug talking points. I’m listing some of these headlines and talking points and then my response.

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWorld crude oil market has been rocked by the surprise announcement of the International Energy Agency (IEA) to release 60 million barrels of oil from member countries’ strategic petroleum reserves (SPR).

Silver Looks Like Dipping Below $30 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Stockcharts no longer see fit to run usable charts for silver and various other commodities - line charts are only suitable for schoolkids or journalists doing projects on the markets, not for serious analysis - we are going to use the chart for iShares Silver Trust (SLV) as a stand in for silver. It is a very accurate proxy, and should continue to be, unless of course, the markets were suddenly to discover that they don't have the silver in their vaults that they say they have.

Collapse Of The Nuclear Empire, Double Or Quits For Nuclear Business / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLEAD IN ITS WINGS
Unlike the Chernobyl catastrophe of 1986 which was easy to shrug off as a faraway Soviet disaster with only "minor fallout impacts", by political deciders and government-friendly media in the most extremely nuclear-committed Western democracies, especially France, the March 2011 Fukushima disaster is a paradigm changer. Germany and Switzerland now have official plans to exit and abandon nuclear power within 10 years; Italy voted 95 percent against a restart of its nuclear programme, already abandoned by a previous national referendum in 1987. Japanese opinion polls presently show that as many as 75 percent of Japanese want to exit nuclear power.

Gold and Silver Fibonacci and Delta Time Charts Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Alistair_Gilbert

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this year there was much fanfare that Gold had closed out 2010 had higher levels than the previous year for 10 consecutive years and that this was the first time in history that any commodity had done this.

Without a doubt, it has been an exceptional performance, and whilst there have been plenty of reasons for its sustained performance to date, I believe that both the fundamentals and the chart are telling us that it is all about to change. On the fundamentals, interest rates have been on 100 year lows in order to prop up the failing banks from the 2008 crash.

Strategic Petroleum Reserves the New Global QE? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn order to understand the SPR release of 60 million barrels, we must go back to the November G20 meeting when Asia/Latam Emerging Markets protested against the Fed's November launch of QE2, dubbing it as beggar-they-neighbour USD depreciation.

It was no surprise that Bernanke did not dare utter the words QE3 on Wednesday's press conference. Yet, there was no need to refer to further easing when the FOMC already downgraded its growth outlook for the 3rd successive meeting.

Gold Prices: Will Gold Equity Investors Reap Big Gains? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrank E. Holmes writes: Gold prices passed the $1,500 per ounce mark for the first time ever in mid-April and, aside from a couple of short pullbacks in early May, have set up shop in the neighborhood of $1,525 to $1,550 an ounce (gold closed at $1,553.40 on Wednesday).

So far in 2011, it's been relatively status quo for those investors who've embraced gold as a way to protect themselves from currency debasement, excessive money printing and inflation as prices have increased 7.67%. Bank of America-Merrill Lynch (NYSE: BAC) analysts are forecasting gold prices could fall to $1,400 an ounce during seasonal weakness in July before rebounding as high as $1,650 an ounce by early fall.
