Newmont Buys Out Fronteer, What’s Next In The Gold Mining Sector? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven though January 2011 brought a lot of profit-taking to mining stocks and precious metals, the leadership of Newmont (NEM) has used this pullback in prices to purchase one of my long-term favorite recommendations, Fronteer Gold (FRG). I believed Fronteer was a great candidate for a takeout. Newmont has gone straight ahead believing in Fronteer’s three major projects in Nevada and buying Fronteer out for a 37% premium.  Newmont believes that the gold prices is moving much higher and they are using their large cash position to find growth.  It is much cheaper to buy a quality asset rather than go out and find it yourself.

Gold Short-Term Buying Spree on Middle East Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePolitical and social unrest in the Middle East was the most discussed topic during the week.  Restlessness and riots could inflate food prices in the region and worsen the economic balance further. As a result, equity, currency and commodity markets have experienced fluctuations. The political disturbances have impacted the crude oil trade significantly as Egypt is a crucial link for oil and gas headed to Europe, Asia and the United States. There are large black swans paddling in the Middle East pond that could have a significant effect on precious metals, oil and stock markets.

Bond Vigilantes Ultimately Good for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAddicted to Profits Editor David Skarica predicts that in the second half of 2011, Europe's "bond vigilantes" will make their presence felt in the U.S. by driving up interest rates and driving down the dollar. That's one of the reasons he remains bullish on gold. "I think we're going to see gold headed much, much higher," David says in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report. To learn about David's investment thesis for the gold market and a few names that offer better value post correction, read on.

Risk Premium Leaving Crude Oil, Positive for Equities / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Oil prices have plunged today in anticipation of a peaceful transition in Egyptian leadership into presumably U.S.-friendly -- and democracy-friendly -- hands, which will quell perceptions of event risks in the oil market.

From a technical perspective, however, the Bull Trap high established on Monday was the oil market's way of winking at us about a potentially friendly resolution. As we speak, perhaps some risk premium is being extracted from the oil market, which should be a positive and supportive development for the equity indices in general and the S&P 500 emini (e-SPH) in particular.

The actual posted national debt of the US is $14.1 trillion. However, the US reports its finances on a cash basis while omitting its unfunded obligations in such items as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and various other entitlements. If the entitlements are included, the total national debt including unfunded obligations would be over $100 trillion…

Egypt is Just the Beginning for Gold’s Next Move / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWatching CNN, its easy to be lulled into the sense that the cute little third world African country that is home to Cleopatra, mummies and pyramids is having a little revolution to get rid of a tired old tyrant. That the old goat is putting up such resistance to the national message is to be expected, and might be forgiven. Unleashing bands of paid thugs under the guise of ‘supporters’ reveals true brutality and illuminates the character of the man, Hosni Mubarak – a sociopath.

Gold & Silver Keep "Bernanke-Trichet" Gains / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF BOTH gold and silver bullion were little changed in London trade on Friday, unmoved by unexpectedly weak US jobs data near two- and 3-week highs respectively.

Adding 36,000 net jobs in Jan., the US economy still saw unemployment slip from 9.5% to 9.0% as a growing number of "discouraged" people – no longer seeking work actively – fell out of the official definition.

Crude Oil Prices Higher on Economic Outlook / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: LiveCharts

Oil prices are finishing off a second week of gains Friday (February 4) as the latest round of jobs data is expected to offer hope that the US economy is improving.

Analysts believe that non-farm payroll jobs increased by around 146,000 workers during January, according to a survey of economists. This has led to anticipation that the Labor Department will report that first-time jobless claims fell more than expected last week.

Rare Earths Affecting Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Anthony_David

A Reuters poll indicates that oil prices in 2011 will be driven largely by Chinese demand and reach a little over $90 a barrel. Prices, however, are unlikely to cross the $100 mark given the high global inventories. Further, the current landscape is unlike that of 2008 when the supply-demand gap was massive enough to drive prices up to $147.27 per barrel.

The Truth About Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Anthony_J_Stills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEgypt seems to be coming apart at the seams and the unrest may be spreading to Jordan as the King fired members of his cabinet in order to stave off potential problems. Then comes Saudi Arabia and pent up resentment against that royal family. We already know that Tunisia and Syria are experiencing difficulties and it's not far from where we are today to a Middle East engulfed in an uprising. Bin Laden and the Taliban have been planting seeds for ten years and thanks to a very short sighted American foreign policy, it looks like they'll bare fruit sooner rather than later. Now the US is doing what it always does, calling for the removal of a man they supported for twenty years. Justified or otherwise such an about face sends a signal to the rest of the world that our word is not our bond and any friendship is fleeting at best.

Societal Shifts Present Growth for Precious Metals Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

It isn’t a secret that the demographics of the financial markets are changing.  The baby boom is retiring, shifting assets from equities and high-risk vehicles toward income generating debt instruments and safer investment alternatives.   It would be reasonable to suspect that the younger generation taking its place is filling the high-risk, high-reward opportunities following the exit of the older generations, but that simply is not the case.

Chinese Silver Buying Just Beginning / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Just a few decades ago, China the Giant was barely a mortal.  It produced most of what it consumed, and the corporate mega-producers installed during the darkest days of Asian freedom and democracy produced all the commodities the country might need within its own borders.

One such commodity was the one we all love: silver.  In fact, China produced so much that it couldn’t use all of it, nor was it interested in holding onto the metal.  The country was a net exporter until four years ago, when at the height of the most recent credit bubble, net imports materialized.  Today, China consumes more silver than it ever has in history.
