Big Jump in London Gold Trading / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWholesale gold trading through London's global center just leapt towards summer 2011's records...

GOLD TRADING in London – heart of the world's wholesale bullion market – leapt in September.

Uranium Could Now be the Best Investment / Commodities / Uranium

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnder the terms of the 1993 government-to-government nuclear non-proliferation agreement (Megatons to Megawatts program), the United States and Russia agreed to commercially implement a 20 year program to convert 500 metric tons of HEU (uranium 235 enriched to 90 percent) taken from Soviet era warheads, into LEU, low enriched uranium (less than 5 percent uranium 235).

Forecasts for Gold, HUI Index And The US Dollar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Vin_Maru

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLooking at the gold chart below, we can see that gold has been correcting over the last two weeks. When applying some technical analysis to the gold chart, we can clearly see that there would have been overhead resistance at $1800 since most of the year gold has traded between $1550 and $1800. A few weeks ago, we also noticed a big build in the short position on the Comex's Commitment of Traders report COT by the commercial and bullion banks. The effort to stop gold's advance at a key resistance level was successful in part because of the huge increase in the short position at that level, which is why we knew to take some profits and that would be an ideal place for a correction to start.

Why Soybeans Beat iPads / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTechnology businesses have always seemed to this researcher to be a losers' game. Soybeans, in the past decade or so, have been converted to a winning game. Why play with losers when one can play with winners? The simple, but elegant, reason soybeans are a better bet than iPads is the cost structure of the two businesses. One is desirable and one is not. The reason soybeans are better is that the cost structure in the industry is now fundamentally better than that of technology.

From Bin Laden To Biofuels - Quant Easing And Energy Security / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSACRILEGE
Many times, Bin Laden and his lieutenants would issue communiques loaded on floppy disks which were intercepted, translated and very creatively interpreted by the CIA's well paid Arabists. Concerning oil, The Bearded One was severe: the impious, even sacriligious West would be punished by oil at $144 a barrel and economic ruin would ensue. In July 2008, going not one better but three dollars better, Goldman Sachs goosed oil prices to $147 a barrel but economic ruin had already ensued. Quantitative Easing was invented, another semi-mystical cultural product of the impious West, whereby about $35 trillion of "new money" was invented since 2008, but disappeared like Bin Laden. To be sure there are differences between the two stories: Goldman Sachs did not receive a helicopter visit from Navy SEALS for its oil price-gouging tricks, but that is only a detail of history.

What Will Price Gold and Silver Tomorrow / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold and silver price has and will move in tandem with each other, with silver moving higher still when gold prices rise and falling further when gold prices fall. Despite different fundamentals behind the two and a different pattern of mining [silver is a by-product of base metal production usually] the two metals are reflecting their value as a means of saving value and wealth, their monetary value. This won't change as we see the economic currents behind the world's financial system continue to falter. After all, for several millennia, man has not trusted man's promises, but has referred to the precious metals to determine true value. So why should the last forty plus years change that, particularly when the 40-year + experiment with a paper financial system has shown so many structural faults.

Natural Gas Cliff / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCLIFF TOPS AND BOTTOMS
In 2004 the self-styled "environmental philosopher" Julien Darley could bring out a book with the title "High Noon For Natural Gas". With other conspiracy theorists, doomsters and media hopefuls ranging from Naom Chomsky to Michael Ruppert, Darley peddled the "US natural gas cliff". Especially the US, but also any other country increasing its use of natural gas was heading for a fall - off the cliff.
