Manipulated Rigged Crude Oil Prices And The Big Bounce / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWorld oil trading mainly concerns "paper oil" contracts traded at a rate vastly higher than actual physical oil production, supply and demand. Paper oil contracts on crude and products cover volumes and quantities at least 60 to 80 times more than actual physical supply and demand. In the case of the USA, where the oil trading system started, the difference is even bigger - usually at least 100 times. The financial players who operate the market, ranging from private investment banks and brokers through commercial banks, hedge funds and high net worth individuals set the scene for price movements, and generate the price spikes and troughs the press and government like to blame on the oil industry, environmentalists and government, or on OPEC.

The Unsafe Method of Owning Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRichard Daughty writes: Thanks to Bill Murphy and the Gold Anti-Trust Action (GATA) committee, the slimy, market-manipulating goings-on in the short-selling of gold futures and silver futures to suppress their prices at the CFTC have pretty well been exposed, and about time, too.

Gold & Silver Precious Metal Stocks, Is The Rally Really Over? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePrime Minister Gordon Brown, who will face a tough battle in the upcoming elections, has two nicknames in the British press-- “Golden Brown” and “Goldfinger Brown.”

Since anything pertaining to gold is of interests to us at Sunshine Profits, we looked into why the Prime Minister has such monikers. Does he perhaps have a Midas touch?

Silver The Most Bullish Currency / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Hubert_Moolman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold appears extremely bullish in most of the world’s currency. Probably more than it has ever been in the last 30 years. However, there is one currency in which gold is looking really bearish.

That currency is none other than the world’s other true currency called silver. The outlook for silver as a currency is as bright as it has ever been; in fact, in my opinion, there is no currency that will match silver over the next couple of years

The Safest, High-Income Way to Buy Natural Gas / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTom Dyson writes: You probably already know there's a phenomenal investment opportunity in natural gas right now. But here's the background...

Natural gas is an extremely useful fuel. In 500 BC, the Chinese used natural gas to turn seawater into drinking water. In Victorian England, they used it to power streetlights. When I traveled around Asia back in August 2008, I found them using natural gas to fuel taxis. And in Canada, they run their busses on natural gas.

Gold Recovers as Markets Weigh Volcano and Sovereign Debt Default 'Black Swan' Risk / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold went up to $1,137/oz before dipping slightly in New York yesterday but it then recovered ending with a loss of 0.06%. It has risen from $1,135/oz to $1,142/oz in Asian and early European trading this morning. Gold is currently trading at $1,142/oz and in euro and GBP terms, gold is trading at €847/oz and £742/oz respectively. Gold has recovered much of the losses from Friday and gold's fall was as much to do with dollar strength and oil weakness last week as it was to do with the Goldman allegations. Indeed gold has already recovered much of the losses from Friday especially in euro and sterling terms.

Why the Gold Price Doesn't Matter / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Tarek_Saab

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnlike mining stocks, gold is not an investment. Gold is money. It is a store of wealth. Gold's 5x growth this past decade is significant not because it's nominal price has increased, but because the prices of most other assets have increased less.

The gold price simply doesn't matter. Gold's value as measured in a fiat currency is arbitrary. Sure, adept traders can take advantage of short term price fluctuations, but bullion owners invest for the long term, and they do so to protect their wealth.

Gold Broken Support Becomes Resistance and the Palladium Rocket / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Douglas_V._Gnazzo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold was down -24.30 for the week (-2.09%), closing at $1137.30 (continuous contract). GLD (gold trust ETF) lost about 2% as well, closing at 111.24. Just last week, gold had made a new 2010 high. In last week's report I said:

"Gold's daily chart is bullish, but it is also starting to enter overbought territory. Gold has been performing well despite a steady dollar. If the dollar were to correct, it would put a bid under gold. The chart has turned decidedly bullish if price holds the breakout.

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"News flow is really, really important. If you're going to play these kinds of stocks, especially if this is a sector you're not that comfortable with, you want to get in at the start or before the start of a drill program and not at the end," says Eric Coffin, co-editor along with his brother David of the HRA (Hard Rock Analyst) publications. In this exclusive interview for The Gold Report, Eric explains the importance of sniffing out upcoming news and timing in selecting potential resource investment opportunities.

Bank Credit and Monetary Inflation Impact on Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne needs only read the story of Goldman Sachs’ creation of CDOs of dubious value to sell to one client while allowing another to short them to understand why Gold has existed as an investment down through the ages. We can not think of one story of kings in times long past that accepted CDOs as payment for taxes. We now know why they usually demanded Gold, or other needed commodities.

Gold and Silver, Precious Metals Slow Motion Lottery Ticket / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there a precious metals mania on deck directly ahead or will another deflation scare, which could curb demand for gold and silver, bail out the bureaucracy yet again. Indeed the bureaucracy seems to have nine lives in this regard, with gold and silver still trading at half their respective inflation adjusted values running all the way back to 1980. Of course there is a different way of viewing this, where the bureaucracy’s level of desperation to maintain the party atmosphere an unbridled fiat currency monetary system will sponsor can be measured by the London OTC Metals Exchange (LBMA) running paper promises to physical ratios at 100:1, which to a conservative mind is the definition of insanity. Because you see this means the entire economy is a ‘house of cards’, which is in fact the reality of the situation, a suicide mission courtesy of an emboldened bureaucracy riding high on gold’s back all these years.

Gold and the Strong Hand Theory / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet’s say you just bought a business, a small restaurant. You open for business on Monday and after a week you have grossed $6000. You’re feeling pretty good about how things are going. The business is up and running. Dollar signs are floating in your brain.

Then a week later you get bills for your first food order, payroll & rent. Maybe you also have the misfortune to get hit with the gas and electric bills on top of that. By the time you finish writing checks your +$6000 has turned into -$3000.

Scardy Cat Gold Bugs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlas, poor gold bug; I knew him Horatio.  He had the brains to be perfectly positioned in the great gold bull market of 1999-2020.  Yet he did not make any money from his wisdom.  Take, for example, the sell-off of April 16, 2010.  Gold was just about to make another powerful move to the upside.  But the sell-off scared him away, and he missed the move.  What was it that he did wrong?

Kitco Gold Bullion Index Comes With a Twist / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUp until now we have always questioned to what extent the price of gold was due to the U.S. dollar’s weakness or to gold’s secular strength but with the introduction of the Kitco Gold Index now we know - precisely - because it measures the price of gold, not in terms of U.S. dollars (USDs), but rather in terms of the same weighted basket of currencies that determine the US Dollar Index. How ingenious!
