The Value of Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul de Sousa writes: There is much confusion today over the role of gold. It is viewed as a commodity, as an investment, as a position to be traded. But if we set aside these preconceived notions and examine why gold and precious metals are resuming their historical role as money the world over, if we establish a gold mindset, we will see that their real value lies in forming the foundation of an investment portfolio, because precious metals provide the ultimate in wealth protection.

Will Central Banks and The IMF Sell Gold Again? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore 2000, the gold markets of the world were in retreat because of the fear that central banks would unload the 34,000 tonnes of gold they held in reserves. Britain conducted the last, great sale, selling half of their reserves at the lowest price the gold market has seen since the early 1970's (and has not been seen since).

That fear was softened by the "Washington Agreement" wherein many of the world's leading central banks, (excluding the U.S. and Japan who gave their tacit blessing) agreed that they would sell no more than 400 tonnes of gold per year, for the next five years.

Silver Fundamentals and Technicals Say Be Cautious! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs it was the case in our previous essay (Will Gold Price Decline Soon or Is This Summer Really Different), let’s begin also today’s article by answering one of the questions that we’ve received from one of our Subscribers. Here is the question.

  • With the volatility in the stock market, the fears about the effect of the Greece debt crisis, “fukushima” in Japan, our various problems with housing, jobs and stunning national debt here in the U.S., I have to wonder if investors are increasingly looking to precious metals as a safe haven……in a way that might defy usually reliable quantitative measures?
  • Also, is it possible the recent detailed study and report by Standard Chartered, citing the limited supply of gold in the next few years and projecting a $5,000 per oz top, tend to drive investors into gold in a way that could defy past technicals?

By: Bob_Kirtley

There are a number of mixed opinions out there at the moment which in our opinion represents a healthy state of affairs. When we are all ‘over the top bullish’ it gives us the jitters, same goes for when the situation becomes overly bearish. Right now the bears are flexing their muscles following a correction in silver prices and the predictions for much lower silver prices sally forth.

Rare Earths Metals Group Mine to Magnet / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rare earths are a group of 17 elements comprising Scandium, Yttrium, and the Lanthanides. The Lanthanides are a group of 15 (Cerium, Dysprosium, Erbium, Europium, Gadolinium, Holmium, Lanthanum, Lutetium, Neodymium, Praseodymium, Samarium, Terbium, Thorium, Thulium, Ytterbium) chemically similar elements with atomic numbers 57 through 71, inclusive.

Nuclear Twilight in Europe / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: OilPrice_Com

It is becoming evident to many that the March nuclear catastrophe at Japan's six reactor Daichi Fukushima complex has dealt a huge, possibly fatal, blow to the nuclear industry's hopes of a revival.

A year ago even global warming enthusiasts reluctantly embraced nuclear power as a carbon-free energy generating system, and the industry was ramping up for glory days as a result.

Gold Correction to Bring Pawnbroker Paradise / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDreams of success seldom come true in the risky junior exploration sector but, assuming great success, investors have driven gold stock prices up into multiples of their true value. Judging from what they tell The Gold Report in this exclusive interview, that's how Global Resource Investors Founder Rick Rule and Exploration Insights Author Brent Cook see it. With so many stocks overvalued, they foresee a waterfall-style correction that will create what Rick might call a pawnbroker's paradise—a perfect scenario for investors who know when to take profits and when to buy back in.

New Rhodium ETC / Commodities / Rhodium

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRHODIUM TRADING THOUGHTS is about timely and profitable trading of precious metals. We do not believe every turn in the market can be called. Our goal is that our recommendations should be profitable. Profits are the goals, not trades. Do not expect all recommendations to be profitable. No system can achieve that lofty goal. Our goal is simply to state whether conditions for a metal are favorable or not. Buy signals are issued when appropriate. These signals are generally speaking for day they are issued. If price remains below signal price, buying can be done. Do Not Buy signals are given when market is over bought, and buying is unwise. Blue triangles indicate an over bought condition. These would not be good times to buy, so they are labeled Do Not Buy. Software is not showing complete legend, for some reason.
