Crude Oil or Natural Gas? / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHydrocarbons have become the lifeblood of this modern era.  And with a huge economic incentive for finding and extracting them, drillers have scoured the world in search of this finite resource.  When they do find it, there is nothing more thrilling than bringing this raw form of energy to the surface.

The most famous extracted hydrocarbon is in liquid form, known as petroleum, or crude oil.  With the next most common form being gaseous, known as natural gas.  Crude oil has of course long been the superior hydrocarbon.  In fact, until the last half century or so oil was really the only hydrocarbon with any commercial worth.

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith all the interest in physical gold, silver and other commodities these days, and the large/mid-cap companies who mine the metals and the juniors who are exploring for them, it begs the question: “Why is no one writing about the merits of investing in the long-term warrants associated with a few of those companies?” Merits? Absolutely!

Where is Support for Gold and Silver Stocks? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has been a tough year for the mining stocks. The large stocks have moved back and forth in a range from support to resistance while the mid tiers and juniors have really struggled especially in recent months. With Europe seemingly on the brink and most markets turning down, it is an opportune time to examine the technical support of the various gold and silver equity indices.

In turn, such action would greatly help the juniors and non producers who have had a difficult year.

Peru: An Emerging Power in the Global Gold Hunt / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChris Devauld writes: Peru has a rich precious metals history. This diverse Andean nation, once a victim of Spanish looting, is now the largest silver producer in the world, the second largest copper and zinc producer and the sixth largest gold producer. The richness of its mineral deposits stems from a dramatic landscape consisting of soaring mountains, winding valleys, stark deserts, dark jungles and lonely coastlines. More than 7% of global mining exploration occurs on this unforgiving terrain, where historical production collides with modern geological technology. The Peruvian mining industry represents about 60% of the country’s export earnings.  Earnings from mining are expected to grow 6% annually through 2011-13.
