By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD in wholesale dealing held flat Monday morning in London, easing down to $1226 an ounce as European stock markets rose but government bonds and traded commodities were also unchanged.

Invest Now in Natural Gas, Coal and Heating Oil for January Cold Weather / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: The irony about cold-weather investing is that the biggest profits come to those who position their money during the hottest months of the year - even during the record heatwave Americans have been experiencing this year.

In short, now's the time to start thinking about such winter-related topics as heating bills, and such cold-weather investments as natural gas, heating oil and coal.

OECD Oil Consumption, Transportation, Emissions, Biofuels and Whiskey / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA new report released by the Carbon Disclosure Project notes that globally, 98% of transportation runs on fuel made from oil. The transportation sector is responsible for almost 60% of oil consumption in OECD countries.

This heavy dependence on oil has resulted in the transportation sector generating 13% of total global emissions, compared to 26% from the power sector and 14% from agriculture (Fig. 1). And out of all the modes of transportation, road vehicles generate the lion's share of the transportation sector’s total contribution to CO2 emissions --approximately 80% (Fig. 2).

Silver Seasonal Big Autumn Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver has been drifting in a rather lackluster summer.  Ever since surging to $19.50 in mid-May, this often-popular white metal has been grinding sideways to lower.  By late July it had fallen over 10% to about $17.50.  But despite silver’s recent excitement-bereft sojourn, it actually has excellent potential for a big autumn rally in the coming months.

As you know on the 29th May 2010 we purchased some Silver Wheaton (SLW) Call Options which are the September 2010 series, with a strike price of $21.00 and we paid $1.30 per contract for them.

BHP and Potash, Inflation, Stealing Calories From the Future / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Dan_Denning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHmm. Let's see. Last time BHP Billiton made a tilt at a high-profile, big money acquisition, the whole world went pear-shaped. As the statisticians say, correlation is not causation. But M&A activity seems to pick up when company directors have run out of other ways to increase earnings. It does not always work out well for shareholders. Case in point, BHP's shares are down today by 3.5%.

Tin, an Overlooked Commodity / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Alex_Cowie

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI want to introduce you to one of the most overlooked metals in the commodity complex. On a price basis, it’s been a star performer. Yet it hasn’t attracted much attention.

That’s just the way I like it, though. It gives you a chance to examine the dynamics of the market without rushing. In this case, the dynamics are very strong. The supply side is constrained; a situation that almost always puts upward pressure on prices. The demand side is strong too, as the recent price action shows.
