By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll developed countries, including top food exporter USA are reacting to rising food-price inflation as price growth forecasts are exceeded. Higher crop, meat, dairy, fish, vegetable oil, fruit and vegetable prices, and higher energy costs are now joined by rapid-changing weather conditions including drought in many key agro-producer regions, making the food price outlook more certain to deteriorate.

Flight into Gold on Rampant Inflation and the Collapsing Dollar System / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe believe that for the past 2-1/2 years the price of gold has been mainly driven by a flight to quality, as gold vied with the dollar for supremacy, as the world’s reserve currency. As we have witnessed gold has won that battle. The only way the dollar or any other world reserve currency can compete is by being backed 25% by gold. The elitist’s royalty of Wall Street and the City of London are quite upset with these developments, because they want all currencies to be fiat, so that they would not have to have a gold backed international monetary unit.

Investors Window of Opportunity For Big Crude Oil Profits / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Kent Moors, Ph.D. writes: The volatility in the oil market has notched up this week, courtesy of another bout with debt jitters in Europe. Oil and gasoline futures are moving down - and most of the energy sector along with them.

In a situation like the current European debt mess - where maximum uncertainty is channeled into a very focused concern - oil futures will generally overcompensate, exaggerating the downside.

Is Gold a Bad Investment? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Nick_Barisheff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNumerous commentaries in the media, both on television and in print, would have us believe that gold is a bad investment. Headlines warning investors to avoid the yellow metal are commonplace. Examples such as “Five reasons not to own gold”, “Gold is in a bubble”, “Gold as an investment - think again”, “Gold is a bad hedge”, “Gold is a pointless rock,” and “Why gold is a bad investment” can be found with a simple Google search on gold and investment.

Silver More Explosive than Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe silver market is still reeling from its fall from $50 to $34 over a very short time. The move was driven by at least one investor selling around 1,000 tonnes of silver over a two week period. Silver had climbed quickly from around $25. The charts supported a rise to $29, but as silver went higher, it climbed out of technical range into new territory. All the time thereafter it was vulnerable to a selloff back to support around that level.

Sterling Gold Hits New Record High on Stagflation and Debt Rating Downgrade Risks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is marginally higher in most currencies today as the yen, the dollar and the pound are all weaker.

Gold has reached a new record nominal high in British pounds due to the growing risk of stagflation in the U.K. and due to Moody’s somewhat belated threat to cut its ratings on most UK banks. This was not helped by Chinese ratings provider Dagong Global Credit downgrading the U.K.’s local and foreign currency sovereign credit rating from AA- to A+ with a negative outlook.

The Last Tango of the Currencies will end in Golds Favour / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt problems now weighing on the Euro have inflicted a devaluation of around 6% this month with no recovery in sight for the PIIGS, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain. The harder the ECB tries to badger and cajole the PIIGS into accepting a serious dose of austerity, the more the people, who will have to carry this burden, revolt.

Euro Dollar Debt Crisis Dance Doesn’t Fool Gold And Silver Bulls / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe euro (FXE) slid compared to the U.S. dollar (UUP) after meeting and reversing at its long term down-trend resistance line two weeks ago.  About four weeks prior to that, I alerted readers that the Euro could reverse lower supporting precious metal prices.  In my March 28th article I wrote, “Watch for a move out of the euro to support precious metals prices as the euro reaches its descending upper resistance level. For the past two years the euro and the dollar have done this inverted dance wherein one goes up and the other goes down. But one thing I am not fooled about is the fact that they are both in secular long-term downtrends.”

Bearish Outlook for Crude Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Last Wednesday we told subscribers that the day's upmove in WTI crude oil futures from $95 to $101 was not the start of a new upleg. We noted that the pattern exhibited on the daily chart since the May 7 at $94.63 to Wednesday's high at $100.99 resembled a bear flag formation much more than a significant bottom. It had the look of a digestion-consolidation pattern in the lower quadrant of the larger downleg from May 2's $113.97.

China Prepares To Launch Gold ETFs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls Submits: Tyler Durden writes: Following Friday's news that China has now surpassed India as the world's largest buyer of gold, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the country is trying to capitalize on the popular interest in the precious metal by transferring the trading infrastructure away from US to domestic capital markets. First, it recently launched a 1 kilo gold futures contract on the HK Merc in an obvious attempt to undermine the Comex monopoly in the space, and next it seems that China has the GLD plain in its sights, as it plans to start exchange-traded funds, tapping rising demand in China, the world’s biggest investment market for the precious metal.
