Grim Economic Outlook Drives Gold and Equities Lower / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $925.90 , down $6 and silver fell to $17.85 , down 43 cents . Gold then sold off somewhat in the New York Globex electronic market before rising again in Asian and early European trading to over $930 per ounce. A lessening likelihood of a military confrontation with Iran contributed to the fall in oil and gold's slight sell off.

So You Think Oil's Expensive Now? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Robert_Carpenter

Oil's move above $140 a barrel and the pronouncement by OPEC that oil prices could rise between $150 and $170 a barrel this summer is another hit for US consumers whose budgets are already at the breaking point. In addition, rumors on Tuesday that Israel had bombed Iran 's nuclear facilities resulted in a sharp spike in oil prices, reminding investors how painfully delicate the market is.

Silver Short Positions Fallacies / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: David_Morgan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently read an “advotorial” suggesting silver to be a fantastic investment, and I could not agree more. However, the author was stating that all short positions have to eventually be covered with physical silver and that when this took place there would be a price explosion.

It is a fallacy that all short positions have to be covered and the shorts will have to buy silver to cover. First, to state that all positions have to be covered is misleading; a position can remain open for a very long time, because as the contract becomes due, it can be rolled over. Technically, it is not the same position, because when it is “rolled forward,” it is a different month and involves a different contract, but basically the contract is moved out to a later date. This rolling takes place all the time in the futures markets.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold Stocks - A contrarian view on where the next Gold Stock winners will emerge.
Searching for the Golden Goose?

For years we have been speaking and writing about the massive bind the Fed now finds itself in. With price inflation rising – read as food and energy skyrocketing -- and little hope for nominal interest rate increases – read as housing too weak for higher rates – negative Real Interest Rates (nominal rates less inflation) looks set to persist for some time.

Profit from the US Fed Inflating the Commodities Bubble / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Martin_Hutchinson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke ignored the warnings of most economists last week, and kept the benchmark Federal Funds rate at 2%, far below the actual rate of inflation.

As a result of this non-move, investors can probably look forward to having global commodities boom to continue for at least a while longer.

Then, when you get back on Monday, I want you to make darn sure you have plenty of gold in your portfolio. Why? Because your wealth is at stake. The Federal Reserve has lit the inflation fuse, and is bound and determined to devalue the U.S. dollar even more than they already have.

Crude Oil Seeking Black Swan for Spike above $150 in Overbought State / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent week has seen crude oil soar through $140 onwards and upwards to a new record high of $146. Much of this gain has been attributed to the growing tension in the middle east with regards a possible Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear infrastructure and the drop in US oil stockpiles.The rise has been accompanied by investors dumping stocks as highly inflationary oil prices continue to contribute towards the destruction of economic activity that pushed the major US indices into technical bear markets (20% down from Oct 07 highs)..

Impact of Grains Bull Market on Meat Prices / Commodities / Livestock

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Americans enter the July 4th weekend they have a lot to look forward to. First and foremost is the celebration of this nation's independence marked by a federal holiday. Then of course are the customary traditions of parades, fireworks, baseball games, and carnivals among the many. But one timeless tradition that nicely ties into the topic of this essay is the almighty barbeque.

Barbequing is near and dear to the hearts of hundreds of millions of Americans. And millions of grillmeisters don their aprons and arm themselves with extra-long stainless-steel-forged tongs and spatulas as they prepare to strut into their backyards for their moments of glory. These champions of grilling take pride in the delectable cuisines they skillfully prepare for friends and family.

ECB Interest Rate Hike Sends US Dollar High and Gold Lower / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES recovered an overnight dip early in London on Thursday, re-touching this week's two-month highs as crude oil broke new all-time records near $146 per barrel and the Dollar fell after the much-expected Eurozone rate-hike.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes:I've been pounding the table about an energy crisis for quite some time. As a loyal reader of my Money and Markets column, you might think I've been proven right by gasoline soaring over $4 a gallon in 32 states and oil hitting new record highs.

But most of what I've been talking about is simply the long-term supply/demand squeeze that will transform our oil-addicted civilization in the future.

Gold Short-term Delta Cycle Turning Points for July / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ronald_Rosen

Our governments through their ignorance, stupidity, or just plain corruption for political purposes have delayed the full expression of the gold cycle until very near the end of the cycle. This means to the highest probability the price of gold will soon begin to explode to the upside. The only thing the delaying actions by governments and various banking authorities have produced is a monumental explosion in the gold price in order to meet the deadline of assigned time i.e., “ There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

Gold Surges on High Geopolitical Risk of Israel Militarily Strike on Iran / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold surged to $942.80 in New York yesterday and was up $16.30 and silver closed at $18.20, up 78 cents.

Gold has succumbed to profit taking with the dollar flat and oil prices down marginally ( $141.30 per barrel <Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - AUG08> ). However, geopolitical risk remains ever present and this should result in gold remaining well bid at these levels.
