Why Investing in Gold, Silver, Commodities is STILL the Way to Go! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Arnold_Bock

Arnold Bock (with Lorimer Wilson) write: Back in 2005 I commented in an article that “my investment portfolio is almost exclusively invested in a basket of commodities (gold, silver, potash, uranium and crude oil) of which the bulk is precious metals. A third of my investments are in gold and silver bullion and a range of individual commodity-related stocks, from the very large producers to the very early stage small junior exploration companies, or their long-term warrants where they exist. Two thirds are in precious metals ETFs.”

Crude Oil Price Surge and Supply, There Are No Good Outcomes / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe political class and their mouthpieces in the corporate controlled mainstream media are desperately trying to spin the oil price surge as a temporary inconvenience that will not derail their phony recovery story. Brent crude closed at $116 per barrel yesterday. West Texas crude closed at $104 per barrel. Unleaded gas has risen by 22% in the last month and 60% since September 1, 2010. I’m sure this slight increase hasn’t impacted Ben Bernanke or Lloyd Blankfein. Their limo drivers just charge it to their unlimited expense accounts. Joe Sixpack, driving his 15 mpg Dodge RAM pickup, is now forking over an extra $1,200 per year in gas expenditures, not to mention more for everything impacted by oil such as food, utilities, and anything transported to their local Wal-Mart by truck (everything). Luckily, the Federal Reserve and crooked politicians only care about their comrades in the top 1% elitist society, for whom oil is an investment, not an expense.

Dwindling Comex Silver Bullion, But Where Is the Gold Coming From? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wonder how much of this silver being sold is leased out from unallocated accounts and holdings in ETFs.

How unfortunate for the silver shorts that the bankers lack a ready supply of bullion from the central banks. Most national stores of silver in the west have already been depleted.

Employment And Oil.... Stocks Whipsaw Week...Bull Trend Still In Place..... / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Jack_Steiman

Such an interesting week. If you remember last Friday's report, I talked about whipsaw coming up in a symmetrical triangle. I don't think anyone would argue that that's exactly what we saw this week. The triangle is alive and kicking. They are so emotional, especially when over played on either side. Longs struggle. Shorts struggle. Lots of back and forth that plays on your mind. Usually causes bad outcomes. You get aggressive in a symmetrical triangle you pay the price, even though you probably didn't put on a bad trade. It just feels that way at certain times within it. Again, nothing aggressive. If you play only a few plays you can more easily deal with what's taking place.

Junior Gold Miners Premium from Social Unrest Spreading Out of Africa and into Americas / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSprott Asset Management Senior Portfolio Manager Charles Oliver says the social unrest in the Middle East could lead to a premium for junior companies operating in North and South America. He's even betting on it, saying, "I believe juniors will give you the best long-term outperformance and alpha." He's taken profits on companies with exposure to Africa and moved that cash into others with primary assets in the Americas, where, he says, there is much lower risk. Charles discusses a basket full of those names in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report.

Crude oil topped $100 a barrel and near month gold and silver futures traded above $1440 and $35 respectively, in the NYMEX.  Besides geopolitical developments, currency fluctuations and stock markets influenced precious metals.

Gold Stocks in SPX Stock Market Selloffs / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the general stock markets now due for a selloff while gold hits new nominal all-time highs, precious-metals-stock traders face something of a quandary.  How are their stocks likely to perform in the near future?  Will they ignore general-stock weakness to rally with gold?  Will they get sucked into a stock-market selloff even if gold remains strong?

Gold Cuts 5th Week-on-Week Dollar Gain / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Silver Backwardation Continues, Silver Eagle Premiums Rise After US Mint Discontinues Production / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile gold is marginally higher today, silver has risen nearly 1% against the dollar and other currencies. Backwardation continues with spot (for immediate delivery) trading at $34.45/oz while the Dec12 contract trades at $34.22/oz and Dec13 at $33.90/oz. Backwardation has eased since last Friday somewhat (see table below) but continues which suggests continued tightness in the physical silver bullion market.

Who’s Really Affected By Rising Food Prices / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is certainly old news around here that terrifying inflation in prices, thanks to the monstrous inflation in the money supply caused by the Federal Reserve creating So Freaking Much Money (SFMM) for the last few decades, has caused me to venture to that dangerous precipice between being merely weird and obnoxious, to being a raving lunatic screaming from the rooftop “We’re freaking doomed!”

Gold Has No Intrinsic Value and Not a Store of Value / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is a valuable thing to store. However, it is not a store of value. Gold has intrinsic properties that make it valuable. However, it does not have intrinsic value.

I mention this, because, at some point, you will read about gold as a store of value. You will read of gold's intrinsic value. Every time you read either of these phrases, you will know that the author does not understand economic theory.

Leverage Surging Crude Oil Demand / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rising tide of commodity prices has had a multiplier effect on the smaller unrecognized and undervalued oil explorers and producer. Private investor Chen Lin is leveraging ever-increasing demand for oil via micro- and small-cap stocks. He looks for companies with strong balance sheets that can generate the cash flow to become self-funding in a relatively short period of time. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Chen explains how he determines which companies have the potential to double, triple or even quadruple and shares some promising stocks he owns.

Natural Resource Depletion Crisis, The Real Reason Commodities Beat Stocks / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFebruary: Metals, food and fuel beat stocks, bonds and the US dollar for a third straight month, the longest winning streak since June 2008. Price rises fundamentally driven by short supplies lifted all soft commodities from the grains and vegetable oils to sugar, cotton and rubber, for a 2.2 percent gain over 28 days, lifting the UN FAO 55-item food index to a record high. Geopolitical threat to oil supply,  intensified by investors speculating that violence in the Arab and Muslim world will curb oil supplies lifted oil prices, while the only fossil energy resource bright spot – shale gas – kept a tight lid on gas prices in US markets, but not on oil-linked or indexed import dependent European and Asian markets.

Gold and Silver Breaking New Highs As U.S. Dollar Loses Appeal As Safe Haven / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold (GLD) and silver (SLV) meteor keeps soaring in the skies over Wall Street as the US dollar (UUP) is parachuting into new lows. The spot price of silver this week broke $34.40, zooming into a record high area unseen since 1980. On March 1, gold followed its poorer brother by breaking out at $1425. The US dollar is challenging all-time lows. It does not take a PhD from Princeton to realize that there may be a problem here. Maybe the recent radical central bank actions should be reconsidered? True, 401(k)'s look good, but it has come at the expense of significant dollar debasement.

Resistance Plateau for Crude Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

While crude oil waffles around between $103 and $100, let's take a look at the big picture. The big picture of crude oil prices (WTI futures) shows the bull move from the Dec 2008 low at $32.40 into the Feb 2011 high at $103.41, which represents almost an exact 62% recovery of the entire prior bear market decline from $147.27 hit in July 2008.
