Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: It's A Hit! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe path of least resistance continues for the moment to be upward… With financial markets undoubtedly improving, stocks performing reasonably well, and gold and oil at soaring, some of the impetus for a 50 bps cut may have been removed. Though a rate cut should theoretically boost precious metals, the markets seem to already be priced for 25 bps cut and, if this is all they're given, could choose to sell the news… Read full article...

Weekly Gold Silver and Uranium Technical Analysis Report - Gold Bull Unstoppable / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite all the short selling, gold seems to be unstoppable. Where and when will all this end? Your guess is as good as mine.

GOLD : LONG TERM
For the past almost three months gold has been on a tear. How long it will last before a significant rest period, or even a reaction, sets in is anyone's guess. This chart (or at least a very similar one) was shown with my commentary of 07 Sept 2007 . We have just breached the first of the long term projections based upon this past year and a half consolidation period. That one was at $780. We are now heading towards the next one at $915 with $1035 beyond that. Projections can be made whenever the action goes through a lateral consolidation period.

Gold: A Different Class of Investment / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Just because dolphins swim, doesn't make them pilchards..."

WHAT KIND OF AN INVESTMENT is gold – and just why are private investors Buying Gold to push it higher in 10 weeks out of the last eleven?

Dubbed the No.1 "diversifier" by serious analysts and clued-up wealth managers alike, gold clearly stands outside the three asset classes held by most private investors.

Crude Oil Approaching $100 - Dynamics of the Oil and Energy Markets / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs oil prices continue to forge higher highs in a seemingly inevitable journey to the $100/barrel mark, it becomes more important for individuals to understand the dynamics of the oil and energy markets. Typically, people think of the price of oil and related energy products from an expense perspective. They worry about how rising gas prices will affect their budget for instance. Or, for those who use oil to heat their homes, they struggle with the ever-increasing cost of heating oil pre-pays. However, there is some good news here also. It is possible for rising energy costs to affect the income side of your personal ledger too. Since oil prices are constantly in the headlines these days, it seems timely to discuss some of these investment possibilities in greater detail.

Reasons for Investing in Gold - Part 2 / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToo much money looking for a home.
Cast you mind back to previous currency declines in currencies other than the $, so bad that the national authorities of those nations believed they needed intervention to hold up or down exchange rates [Deutschmark - Pound - Lira etc]. These happened in the early seventies, eighties, nineties and the noughties we're in now, so this is by no means new to the currency world. For instance, the Bundesbank repeatedly had to back off holding the Deutschmark down, as speculators matched their intervention, in the seventies. Later the Bank of England paid a very heavy price before it just had to give in to the attack on Sterling [thanks to George Soros]. Then, in the Eurozone area, remember the Lira pegs of Europe's Exchange Rate Mechanism? Well it ain't over yet! Lately we're seeing it on the Persian Gulf O.P.E.C. states and now in Hong Kong].

Major Base Metals, Copper, Zinc, Nickel, Lead and Aluminum, Are All in the Midst of Spectacular Secular Bull Markets / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global commodities bull has sure been flexing its muscles in recent years. And this is a result of our growing world's insatiable demand for the hard commodities that feed widespread industrialization and modernization. Since these commodities are finite in nature, an economic imbalance has emerged that has showcased incredible market activity.

Supply has simply not been able to keep up with fast-growing demand. And when you have more capital chasing after fewer goods, prices are naturally going to rise. The industrial metals or base metals that are indispensably used in virtually every aspect of physical infrastructure, from structural to mechanical, have displayed this basic economic principle to the highest degree.

Uranium Stocks Neutral on Bad News - Technically Uranium with Merv / Commodities / Uranium

With the “bad news” one reads in the media about the rough time the largest uranium companies seem to be having it's a wonder that the Merv's Daily Uranium Index has not totally collapsed.

Goldman Sachs Manipulation of Commodity Prices - Gasoline and Crude Oil / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is still open season on Goldman Sachs. Ditto for JP Morgan and the clique of Wall Street firms, who enjoy untold tremendous privilege. Well, Goldman is at it again, playing games, abusing their role, and making money, all legally. One should say, rather, all without prosecution. One puts life and career at risk when revealing the hidden actions of the military and security organizations running in this land. However, taking aim at the Wall Street bank sector parasites is deemed a harmless exercise, regarded much the same as a fly or mosquito flirting around the USGovt torso. The ugliest example of illicit publicly noticed activity by Goldman Sachs in my opinion was the late summer 2006 change to the GS Commodity Index. They lowered the unleaded gasoline weight from 9% to 2%, forcing the sale of $7 billion in gasoline contracts. Nevermind motive, focus on execution. With $100 billion in indexed funds invested in the GSCI, Goldman knew what would happen. Gasoline fell sharply in price. GSax profited heavily, all legal, not even a prosecutable violation.

Exploding the Myth of Unbacked Silver Certificates and Phony Silver Storage / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExecutive summary

Analysts put their own construction on facts coming out of the class-action suit between Morgan-Stanley and 22,000 of its clients involving costs associated with the storage of precious metals. They jump to the conclusion that metal supposedly backing outstanding silver certificates does not exist and never has. Storing silver on clients' account is a farce. From this they conclude that the net short commercial interest in silver on the COMEX, allegedly naked, must further be increased by adding the amount of unbacked silver certificates and phony storage, which they conservatively estimate at one billion ounces.
