What Inflated the Commodities Bubble? / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Salman_Khan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude Oil has corrected over 15% from the top. Gold, Silver, Copper, Wheat and other commodities too have retreated from their respective highs. The heavy selling witnessed in last few days, has raised concerns that the air is leaking from the Commodity bubble and that a multiyear bull market might end soon. It has been pretty well established of late, that the commodity market has been exhibiting many of the characteristics of a bubble. Thus, we may be very well at the beginning of a bursting asset bubble.

China Driving Force for Long-term Commodities Bull Market / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Emanuel_Balarie

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently returned back from China with some pertinent observations about the commodity markets, Jim Rogers, and the economy. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in my commodities newsletter that if anyone had doubts about the long-term direction of the commodity markets, they should simply hop on a plane and fly to China. The logic behind this is quite simple. Since China has been responsible for the majority of the increased commodity demand over the last decade, keeping a pulse on their commodity consumption trends can give you a pretty clear picture of where things are moving in the longer term. Here are some observations on various topics:

The Mega Commodity Move: Why It's Happening / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Aden_Forecast

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals have been soaring. Gold, silver, platinum, palladium… you name it. If it's a metal, it's been booming. The same is true of other commodities too. So are commodities the new bubble? Have they replaced the real estate bubble, which replaced the tech stock bubble, as investors move from one bubble to another? It sure looks like it. But the big difference is that this metals and commodities bubble has a lot further to go. Why?

Commodities Secular Bull Continues Into 2008 - Many More Years to Run! / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rebirth of the secular bull market of commodities beginning in 2000 can be mainly contributed, first to the cresting and eventual decline of the U.S. dollar and second, the mounting economic expansion of China and India. Combined, these two forces have propelled raw material prices into a long-term uptrend.

The current extended rise in natural resources is best measured against a broad equity market. In Chart 1, the Commodity Research Bureau Index (CRB) and the S&P 500 are compared for performance over the past 12 years. During most of the 1980s and all of the 1990s, paper-based equities (S&P 500) greatly outperformed raw materials (CRB).

CRB Commodity Price Index Trend Manipulation / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAround 33 centuries ago, one of the most famous men in history hiked up a mountain probably now known as Jabal al Lawz in today's northwestern Saudi Arabia . There Moses met with God. God Himself carved commandments into stone tablets for Moses to share with His people, the Israelites. These commandments eventually became a major part of the legal foundation for western civilization.

One of these commandments preserved in the book of Exodus is “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” While most obviously commanding us not to lie, I believe this commandment goes well beyond lying. It probably also includes presenting true information in such a way that it will likely mislead when interpreted. A modern word that comes to mind along these lines is “nuancing”.

By: Donald_W_Dony

• CRB Index expected to advance to new highs in 2008, but with slower growth
• Light crude oil finds solid support at $89; no weakness anticipated – target is $108
• Fed rate cut meeting on December 11 will send gold higher and drop the USD; target is US$875
• Weaker copper prices point to stalling economies; $3.80 is solid resistance
• Natural gas pinned under $8.50 resistance; little chance of growth until second half of 2008. Steady LNG supply should keep prices low.

Commodities Bull Market Revived / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNumerous favorable signals point to a resumption of the commodity bull. It had been stalled for almost a year. The US Federal Reserve interest rate cut on September 18 clearly marked a turning point, a watershed event, a sea change. The USEconomy is the weakest on the planet, not surprising since it grew on the back of a housing bubble, which has since entered a slow motion crater. The US financial sector, the engine behind the so-called FIRE economy, has sputtered from bubbles mixed with kooky engineering mixed with leverage steroids laced with mispricing misrating fraud.

What's behind the Meltdown in the Commodity markets? / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Sarah_Jones

By Gary Dorsch, Editor, Global Money Trends

“A Trend in Motion will stay in motion, until some major outside force knocks it off its course.” After climbing to a 25-year high of 365.45 on May 11 th , the Reuters Jefferies Commodities (CRB) Index began to show signs of fatigue in June and July, and then stumbled into a free-fall in August and September. With the CRB index slicing below its four-year upward sloping trend-line in early September, chart watchers would probably agree that a peak in the bullish cycle has been reached.

Is the 'Commodity Super Cycle' Fizzling Out? / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Gary_Dorsch

By Gary Dorsch, Editor of Global Money Trends newsletter

Since reaching a 25-year high of 365.45 on May 11 th , the Reuters Commodity Index, (CRB index), has been showing signs of fatigue, after a relentless four-year climb. The CRB index doubled from four years ago, led by commodity superstars, such as crude oil, copper, gold, platinum, silver, and sugar. However, since topping out three months ago, the CRB index has slumped about 9%, whipping up speculation that the 'Commodity Super Cycle' is fizzling out.  

Defending its decision to pause its two-year rate hike campaign at 5.25% on August 8th , the Federal Reserve predicted that a softer US economy would take the steam out of commodity prices. 'Inflation pressures seem likely to moderate over time, reflecting contained inflation expectations and the cumulative effects of monetary policy actions and other factors restraining aggregate demand,' the Fed said. Putting his fragile reputation on the line, Fed chief Ben Bernanke hinted at a rate pause on July 19th , despite elevated commodity prices. “The recent rise in inflation is of concern, and possible increases in the prices of oil as well as other raw materials remain a risk to the inflation outlook. On the other hand, a slowing economy should reduce inflation pressures,” he told lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
