Faulty Markets, Is the Silver ETF Bleeding to Save the COMEX? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The iShares Silver Trust (SLV) has seen a precipitous decline in the amount of silver it reports in its trust, even as the price of silver remains mostly flat in post-frenzy trading.  If SLV really does own the silver that it reports on its balance sheet, investors should be left to wonder if the SLV isn’t doing the bidding of the COMEX, which has reported falling supplies amidst larger requests from purchasers.

Amidst OPEC Drama, Solar is to Silver What Ethanol Is to Corn / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The state of global affairs has never been in such disarray.  Major governments are going bankrupt, inflation is running rampant in a majority of the countries that line the planet, and relationships between nations have never been so heated.

This past week, the Obama Administration took a direct shot at OPEC, leading the charge in a release of emergency oil reserves intended to keep prices low against falling supplies.  OPEC failed to increase oil production, and one holdout, Iran, turned the event into political drama.  Now some are wondering if the administration’s move may threaten the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia.

America’s Oil Supply: The Keystone for Survival / Commodities / Crude Oil

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Energy Report writes: A rancorous debate over TransCanada Corp.’s (T.TRP) proposed Keystone XL Pipeline has given rise to two uncomfortable prospects: If the US$7 billion project is not built, Alberta’s oil sands will become landlocked, at least for a while, and the United States will lose access to one of its few reliable, friendly sources of oil.

Will Gold Benefit from the European Debt Crises? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Doug Groh, senior analyst with Tocqueville Asset Management, likens the gold price to a mirror that reflects peoples' concerns about global economic and political events. And he likes what he sees in the long-term prospects for gold equities.

The Gold Report: The situations in Greece, Ireland, Spain and Portugal are proving the unsustainability of deficit financing and are effectively killing the euro as a safe haven currency. As these worries escalate, have you seen more money come into your fund?

I have frequently commented that 'country, and in some cases state-specific and province-specific, political and economic risk' profiles are critically important when researching and assessing risk in the context of investing in mining and oil & gas companies - or for that matter, any company irrespective of business sector. I wrote the following in Valuation of Mining Companies (page 13):

Trading Gold and Its Eurozone Crisis Premium / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently gold challenged it’s all time highs, being propelled largely by renewed concerns over the Greek debt crisis and the possible ramifications a default could have on global financial markets. Whilst fears of a possible default in Greece are supportive of gold prices in the short term, it is important to understand that such pressures are largely temporary in nature and they do not significantly change the underlying market dynamics in the longer term. We feel the best way to describe this is by way of visualizing that there is a premium built into the gold price that varies with regard to how prevalent fears over the Eurozone crisis are. Just to clarify, we are considering the effect that fluctuations in fears over the Greek situation have on the gold price, not the effect that an actual default would have on the price. When fears escalate, the gold price increases and when fears subside, then so does the gold price. It does not necessarily significantly alter the overall direction of gold prices over the longer term.

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there a clear path to meeting growing global critical metals demand? An important first step, according to Laurentian Bank Securities' Technology and Strategic Metals Analyst Jim Powell, would be to establish supply sources that aren't concentrated in a single country—particularly one that isn't inclined to share its resources with the rest of the world. In this exclusive interview with The Critical Metals Report, Jim points out some potential plays to look for while the landscape is changing.

Strategic Crude Oil Release Will Not Hurt Clean Energy Progress / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Jeb_Handwerger

The recent release of 60 million barrels of oil (OIL) will artificially lower the price. High oil prices has been the best catalyst for clean energy production and fuel efficient vehicles. Increasing the supply of oil may be pushing down the demand for rare earths(REMX), uranium(URA) and lithium(LIT) only short term. This decline in oil prices should not drastically hurt the development of rare earth assets outside China.

Gold Cash In, Not Out at $1,500 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome pundits are yelling for investors to take profits in junior resource stocks now. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Richard (Rick) Mills, host of Ahead of the Herd online and editor of Ahead of the Herd newsletter, explains why $1,500 gold means investors should be cashing in, not cashing out.

The Gold Report: Last week, gold reached above $1,540/ounce (oz.) as fears escalated over Greece defaulting on its sovereign debt, most of which is owed to European banks. One telling figure is that the risk of default is so high that the interest rate on two-year Greek bonds is about 29%. Should we expect a continuing upward trend for gold throughout the rest of the year as Greece's debt story and the fears of contagion play out in Europe?

China Winning the Race for Central Asia's Energy Riches / Commodities / Energy Resources

Many western analysts have described the post-Soviet tussle for Caspain and Central Asian energy reserves as the new "Great Game, except this time around, Russia is facing the U.s. rather than the British empire.

To a dispassionate outside observer however, what is most striking about the prolonged wrangle between Moscow and Washington for hydrocarbons, military bases and influence is the emergence of an understated sly newcomer who has managed to bag many of the region's assets - China.

How Does the Eurozone Crisis Boost Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last year, perhaps the greatest concern of the developed world markets has been the Eurozone debt crisis and its effect on the euro. It has brought into sharp focus the seriousness of a nation's debt situation. In the last decade, we have blithely accepted that a nation can issue debt and be safe from default. Over this last year, that perception has changed considerably, as nations have been seen to have excessive debt. Nations are not unlike individuals, in that if you have too much debt and not enough cash flow, you will go into liquidation. Likewise, a nation can go bust! Two years ago, the euro was seen as counter to the dollar.
