Silver Backwardation a Result of COMEX DEFAULT RISK / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: SilverDoctors

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBackwardation in a commodity can be caused for 2 reasons.  Either traders want out of the currency (they have no wish to receive US dollars when future contracts expire as they fear those dollars will be worthless) OR they fear that the physical commodity will not be available for delivery when the contract matures. If a lack of confidence in the US dollar was the PRIMARY cause of backwardation in silver, clearly we would see a significant backwardation in the GOLD MARKET AS WELL! The lack of coinciding backwardation in gold indicates that major players are concerned about the SUPPLY OF PHYSICAL SILVER!

The Complete Cost Of Mining Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Steve_St_Angelo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe inspiration to write this post was to clarify some issues with the costs of mining silver. I believe many of the investing public has mistaken what is termed as the “CASH COST” as the real cost of mining silver. According to the Silver Institute in 2010, the cash cost from primary mine production was $5.27 an ounce. The Silver Institute gets their info from the World Silver Surveys produced by GFMS. I have had an email exchange over the past several months with one of their metal analysts on various topics. I recently asked permission to reproduce their Cash Cost graph for this post, and was told I could do so for $1,500.

Gold Worship and Donuts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

This week markets have taken two prices to new highs: donuts and Gold. One is eaten. Other is now worshiped. Which should be our choice for today? At today's prices, donuts may be better choice.

For those wondering why donuts came to mind, Dunkin' Brands stock(US: DNKN) came to the market this week. First day pop was almost 50%. At the same time, $Gold was pushed to a record high. At that same time as anticipating the U.S. government defaulting, investors are buying donuts?

Gold and Silver Beyond the Limit / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps the debt ceiling should be renamed the "national debt target," for it seems Washington is always trying to reach it. One could say it's their only reliable, time-tested achievement. And without fail, upon reaching their national debt target, they promptly extend it further in order to discover how quickly it can once again be attained!

While I have little doubt that the ceiling will be raised, my readers have been curious as to the implications for gold in each of the debt and "default" scenarios possible after August 2nd. This month, I'll outline how each outcome could affect the price of gold and silver.

The Death of the U.S. Dollar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll fiat currencies fail, says Jay Taylor, editor of the Gold, Energy & Tech Stocks newsletter. That's why he calls gold and silver the only true currencies. While some junior mining stocks have lagged behind high-flying bullion, Taylor tells The Gold Report in this exclusive interview why they will continue to be the cornerstone of his portfolio.

The Gold Report: You recently wrote that these are not normal times. Perhaps the current macroeconomic picture is the new normal?

Palladium Metal Investing Primer / Commodities / Palladium

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOften lost in the shuffle and the talk about gold and silver as the primary precious metals is another metal, which has uses that rival that of silver, is brilliant in appearance and makes a beautiful coin. Its value has quadrupled since 2003 after seeing an all-time high in 2001, and potentially the best aspect yet is that the supply and demand fundamentals have never been better. Guess it yet? I’m talking about palladium. Over the next several pages, we’ll take a look at the many uses for palladium, who the big producers and consumers are, prices, and most importantly, the future outlook. The purpose of this article is not to form specific recommendations, but rather to raise awareness of another of the semi-precious metals and to act as a primer for familiarizing people on its fundamentals.

Buzz Around Gold is Growing Louder / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI outlined last week the increasingly bullish consensus among analysts about gold stocks. The same pattern exists with gold itself; growing numbers of analysts have either joined the movement or have upped their bullish outlook.

The following comments and developments have all been reported just this month. It presents quite a convincing case when one strings them together like this. Keep in mind that this is what these analysts and managers are telling their clients.

Coundown to U.S. Debt Default, Dollar Under Pressure, Gold Market Active / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday, 3 August 1971 – Treasury secretary John Connally yesterday urged US banks not to follow the Bank of Michigan, the Financial Times reported, after the small bank raised its key lending rate from 6% to 6.5%.

Instead, US banks should look to "hold prime rate down", said Connally, adding that "Further unjustified increases in interest rates, already historically high, might well jeopardize the strength of business recovery.

Gold Faces Short-Term Price Trap / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Although I believe gold still faces a very rosy future, an agreement in Washington that avoids default and growing concerns of a global economic slowdown could create significant near-term headwinds for gold investors.

Biofuels Potential to Transform the Global Economy / Commodities / Energy Resources

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSlowly but surely, an extraordinarily important new industry is slowly taking shape, with the potential to transform the global economy.

After years of existing largely as an environmentalist's fantasy, commercial production of biofuels for the world civil aviation industry is slowly becoming a fact, with production starting up across three continents.

Uranium Bull Market / Commodities / Uranium

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNuclear power has been a hot topic of recent.  And as a result, the price action of its input commodity has been quite schizophrenic.  Investors and speculators are in a state of great wonderment over what to expect from this intriguing mineral that is mined for energy.

Based on its core strategic fundamentals, investors ought to be wildly bullish on uranium’s future.  But with a veil of uncertainty cast over it thanks to the tragic Fukushima disaster, should we be looking at the future differently?  Of course only time will tell how things play out.  But based on cold-hard rationality, my money is on a future where nuclear power is an indispensible part of the world’s energy infrastructure.

Will the Debt Ceiling Debate Coincide with Short-term Ceiling for Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere are two words that Americans and the rest of the world have not paid much attention to until now: DEBT CEILING. The debt ceiling drama has been keeping Americans on the edge of their seats – and they better hold on tight as those seats could get repossessed on August 2.  It’s as if American’s national credit card, member since 1776, is valid only through 08/02/11. In a nutshell, the debt ceiling is America’s legal limit on borrowing, and the country is maxed out until Congress increases it.

Gold and Silver Unaffected by Debt Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the silver price riveted to the gold price, what happens to gold, applies to silver.

Right now the markets are really starting to wind up over the debt ceiling confrontations. The weekend of U.S. political strife is on the world. It is so easy for the markets and commentators to lead us to believe that the gold and silver prices are rising because of this, but we emphasize that they are not!

Are Gold and Silver Support and Resistance Levels Holding? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

As I write this, the great debt debacle continues. The House vote on the GOP debt plan, scheduled to take place Thursday night, has been delayed. The markets finally seem to be pricing in the financial mess in Washington, as the S&P 500 (NYSE:SPY) fell 2% on Wednesday, and also closed lower on Thursday. Surprisingly, gold (NYSE:GLD) and silver (NYSE:SLV) have been declining this week as well.

Are You Brave Enough to Invest in Cotton? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Although Barclays Capital (NYSE:BCS) released a report recently that inflows into commodity markets fell sharply as the first half of 2011 ended, commodities in general have shown strength. However, cotton has fallen far from its 2011 peak. Shares in The iPath DJ UBS Cotton ETN (NYSE:BAL) now trades around $64, after reaching a 52-week of $117.33 in March of this year. Can cotton rebound from these levels?

Gold Top Devil’s Advocate / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Toby_Connor

The persistent and mindless bullishness on gold lately has got me nervous. When I get nervous the first thing I do is pull up a multi-year chart and look at the big picture.

A couple of things are apparent when one looks at the chart below. First as I've noted many times in the past gold has a tendency to move above a big round number before topping. It did it at $1025, $1225, $1432, and gold recently tagged $1630.

Bayonets and Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe history of fiat money has always been one of failure - every fiat currency since the Romans started diluting the silver content of their denarius has ended in devaluation and eventual collapse of both the currency and of that particular economy. Most paper money economies downfall can be linked to the costs of financing out of control military growth and its wars.
