Currency Wars: Euro Descending, But What of Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Rickards’ new book, ‘Currency Wars’, has been getting plenty of attention recently as its launch has seen it rocket up the best sellers lists, and not just in the financial and economic world. Jim has also had an interesting spat with Nouriel Roubini recently on Twitter, which still seems to be rumbling on. The title of Jim’s book seems to be rather prescient at this time as we look across the Eurozone and watch the markets generally. Jim advises that we are in the middle of the third great currency war, we find his arguments compelling, and the release of his book is perhaps timely.

John Williams Hyperinflation Warning, Preserve Wealth Value with Gold / Commodities / HyperInflation

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmong the specters lurking in ShadowStats.com's Editor John Williams' gloomy outlook for the U.S. are the demise of the dollar, hyperinflation and the ongoing lack of political will to take sound corrective measures. Still, as he tells The Gold Report in this exclusive interview, investors have options. Williams contends that turning to gold, silver and strong foreign currencies would protect wealth and position savvy investors to take advantage of extraordinary opportunities likely to flow out of the turmoil ahead.

Are Physical Precious Metals Still in Demand? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The past couple weeks have been a somewhat trying time for precious metal investors. After liquidity concerns and euro zone theatrics, precious metals have been in a downward spiral. On Friday, gold settled at $1,685.70, while silver closed at $31.01. However, investors continue to acquire physical gold and silver in order to protect themselves from the current financial landscape.

Crude Oil Price Analysis / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

January Crude Oil closed lower for the second consecutive week but losses could have been worse if not for a strong comeback on Friday. The primary reason for the weakness throughout the week was concern that the European debt crisis would trigger the start of a global recession. As bearish conditions spread throughout the Euro Region, traders pressured the Euro, driving up the U.S. Dollar and lowering demand for the dollar-based crude oil market.

Will the Use of Gold as Collateral Push the Gold Price Down? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Gold Forecaster has for years now pointed to gold's coming monetary role as collateral. We have never believed that a return to the Gold Standard was feasible in the form it was used in last century. We have never believed it would return as day-to-day money. We have always seen its return tied into its use on a global basis, most likely between governments, as we saw under the Bretton Woods system after the Second World War. We have always pointed to a time when it would return to a key monetary position in the global financial system.

By: Ben_Traynor

Disappointing Year for Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 is very soon to become a disappointment. U.S. dollar was popularly forecast to be zero by now. As is readily evident in the chart, a second possibility existed. Why did the dollar not go to zero? Well first, that was a ridiculous expectation. Secondly, that forecast was doomed to failure because it rapidly became the consensus forecast.

Energy And Commodities - The Coming Supply Threat / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrenetic speculation on ever more opaque and complex, intensely rigged energy and commodity markets has generated a contango-dominated context where only high prices now, and higher prices further out can save the day - for market operators and players. This applies almost across the board and with few exceptions. The so-called market neutral change-on-a-dime flexibility does not apply for pure and basic financial reasons: equities have taken a solid beating and the loss has to be made up somewhere else in the "seamless asset space".

The Ready Gold Bullion Boys / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's been said Alaska has been discovered four times; first for furs, then fish, gold and finally, oil. Alaska's history has therefore been one of boom to bust to boom. There is no doubt that gold played the major part in the development of Alaska and today precious and base metals are again playing a major role in the state's economy.

In 1850 gold was discovered on the Russian River in the Kenai Peninsula and in 1861 gold was again found at Telegraph Creek near present day Wrangell.

Hang onto Gold But Brace for Potential Price Volatility Ahead / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the World Gold Council’s (WGC) last quarterly research piece, the authors find that ‘average gold price volatility is lower for each represented year since 1980’ meaning that ‘gold also becomes less susceptible to sharp swings, heralding its value as a tail-risk hedge’. This statement got us thinking about what the future has in store for future gold price volatility, given that many market participants forecast greater volatility in other markets. In particular we think of the superbly eloquent Rick Rule, who looks for greater volatility presenting itself in a great range of markets as pressures within the financial system build.

Gold Price Going to Fall to $1,500? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the worsening Eurozone crisis and the failure of government to manage the U.S. debt responsibly, markets are fearful of a meltdown. Traders are driving prices down in the knowledge that many positions are geared [leveraged] and exposed to margin calls. Other positions are protected by 'stop loss' instructions, so can be triggered by prices moving down through support levels. Potential buyers are in no hurry to enter the market, either because they feel there is further to fall or because the volumes dictating price moves are too thin to get the sort of positions they want. Overall, the investment climate is very wintery from the bottom of the financial structures right up to the markets themselves.
