By: Marty_Chenard

The market continues to wait on a debt ceiling outcome as the August 2nd deadline nears. The Dow (NYSE:DIA) closed lower on Tuesday, while oil (NYSE:USO) and precious metals (NYSE:DBP) climbed higher. Commodities (NYSE:RJI) in general received a strong boost from a declining U.S. Dollar (NYSE:UUP). Gold (NYSE:GLD) and silver (NYSE:SLV) in particular are looking strong as paper currencies and investments remain in question. Furthermore, a major bank has raised average target prices for both gold and silver.

The Need for a Real Domestic Alternative Energy Policy in the USA / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Alternative energy (or renewable energy) is a new manufacturing industry paradigm that is in its infancy. However, the discussion is not new, and it looks as if the United States has positioned itself to be behind history on what can be a very promising industry for a stumbling economy. After the oil shortages in the 70's, government officials began discussing energy policy as a matter of national security, but this misses the point of a globally competitive economic world. It was too early then to begin thinking that China could out-invest the United States in order to produce an alternative energy manufacturing industry.

The World According to Gold – Literally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery time I write a “World According to Gold” piece, gold is setting a new record, among a new crop of bubble-callers, and still the world hesitates to pile into gold for fear of getting burned. Many of those who have doubled or tripled their money have since died, retired, or simply kept on making money investing, succumbing to the addictive quality of wealth. The only other consistency with the new old record and another eponymous article, is that there is yet again more fiat capital in the system. But now, the rate at which capital fabrication is increasing is itself increasing. In other words, larger sums are required just to keep the international circle-jerk in motion.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is marginally lower in all currencies today (USD 1,611, EUR 1,113 and GBP 983 per ounce) but remains close to record nominal highs in major currencies on U.S. and Eurozone debt concerns.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: Anyone who thought the silver bull-run ended with the metal's recent price slip should think again, because there's a silver price rebound about to take off.

Silver prices dipped more than 20% in May after testing $50 an ounce, but Washington's lack of progress on the debt ceiling debate has rattled investors, sending them once again to the safe havens of gold and silver.
