The Real Reason for High Gas Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Clif_Droke

A major news service ran a couple of feature stories on the Internet this week on the topic of high gas prices. Although different in the details, it was substantially similar to articles they've run off and on over the past two years. This particular article seems to appear whenever gas prices get so high that Americans start grumbling and passing around that chain e-mail about boycotting ExxonMobil.

China Stock Market and China Gold Technicals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Two years ago I suspect American investors would have unanimously scoffed at the notion that the world would soon look to China 's stock markets for guidance rather than the USA 's. Yet here we are today. Over these past two years the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index has soared a breathtaking 328%, capturing the world's attention.

At best at the end of May, the SSEC was up 62% this year alone! Such gains are clearly unsustainably parabolic which place the Chinese stock markets deep into classic bubble territory. And the amazing stories coming out of China these days reflect mania extremes. From an accelerating day-trading craze, to record numbers of new stock-trading accounts being opened, to even lowly Chinese laborers giving stock tips, China is caught up in the throes of a textbook stock mania.

Global Market Brief: A New Step in the Ethanol Revolution? / Commodities / Ethanol

By: John_Mauldin

This week in a Special Outside the Box we look at the discussion of alternative energy sources, specifically, ethanol derived from corn or sugarcane. The Stratfor piece discusses the economic implications of ethanol usage; geopolitical ramifications in terms of how current oil producers will be affected, comparable cost advantages between corn and sugarcane processing, and the advantages and disadvantages of ethanol production and consumption.

Gold looking great! Plus Titanium another Hot Market! / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Money_and_Markets

Larry Edelson writes: Gold's looking great! After a brief pullback earlier last week, the yellow metal jumped almost $10 an ounce to well above its recent strong uptrend line that dates back to October of last year.

And while gold's not out of the woods yet, my indicators tell me that once it closes above $682 — a new leg up will begin, and gold will soar to new record highs, well above $732 an ounce, and probably over $800!

Gold, Uranium and Nickel Poised for Blast-Off! / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Money_and_Markets

Sean Brodrick writes A funny thing is happening on the way to the next U.S. recession — the rest of the world is forgetting to come along.

Sure, the U.S. economy may be slowing down precipitously — gross domestic product expansion was just revised down to 0.6% for the first quarter. But the global economy is expected to grow at a 4.7% pace in 2007, and may accelerate in 2008.

Turning Point for Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Michael_J_Kosares

In this issue we resurrect the old Nuggets format to accommodate several analysts who surfaced last week to say that we may have reached a turning point in the gold market. If last week's lows hold, the corrective process took all of a 6% bite out of the price.

The charts continue to display a bullish pattern of rising lows and strong buying on the dips. What's more, we are back within roughly $20 of the interim highs. Perhaps commodities analyst Dan Norcini said it best: "All in all, this week will sure go a long way to soothing the hearts of weary gold bulls who will probably be seen walking around town with a much lighter step than they possessed last weekend.

Strong Molybdenum Demand Panicking Traders / Commodities / Molybdenum

By: James_Finch

Record nickel prices are driving stainless steel manufacturers to substitute other metals, such as chromium and manganese in their composition. One metal increasingly being used in a growing number of applications, for which there is less possibility of replacement is molybdenum. Growing demand accompanied by less and less supply is driving the molybdenum price higher. Some believe it could jump another 50 percent in the near future.

A Look at Pan American Silver (PAAS) and The Silver Stock Sector / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Clif_Droke

It has been a rough past few weeks for the silver stocks, with some taking more of a hit than others. A few “name” stocks like Coeur d'Alene (CDE) have born the full brunt of the bears' fury while other stocks have held up quite well and some have even gone on to make new highs in spite of the recent correction. We'll take a look at some of these stocks in this report.

Trading THOUGHTS - Gold and Silver Trend is Up, Buy on Corrections / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Well, the U.S. reported this past week data on economic performance in the first quarter of 2007. Real growth was 0.6% and the GDP deflator, or inflation, was 3.6%. Speculative fund managers took this as good news, somehow. Inflation during the first quarter was running six times that of inflation. In short, most of what is going on in the U.S. economy has been inflation. Then on Friday came the report on employment in the U.S. Someday the truth will be told on the employment report, but not this week. About 1/3 of the workers added in May were jobs at bars, restaurants, and hotels. Is that economic growth, or laid off construction and factory workers taking any job they can find? 

Basic Trend: $Gold Up. Investors should focus on Buy signals. Strategy: Positive, per Investment Policy of Oct 2004. 

Investment Policy: Act on buy signals. Hold long-term core position.

Deep Gold Mines, Cheap Paper Money / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

"...The supply of cheap gold looks to be nearing its end. The supply of cheap money, on the other hand, only grows greater..."

ONCE UPON A TIME in the market place, says Economics 101, money had three primary functions.

A medium of exchange for buying and selling, money was also a unit of account for pricing those deals. Thirdly, it had to act as a store of value – a way of freezing wealth, ready to spend at some point in the future.

Gold and Silver Analysis - Precious Points: Why This Rebound Looks Real / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Dominick

Joe Nicholson writes : “With the market all but giving up on rate cut relief this week, the proliferation of leveraged buyouts and junk bond issuance, and the steady surge in bank loans and global liquidity, give every indication that real interest rates might be too low.” ~ Precious Points: No Lack of Support , May 27, 2007

Weeks ago this update said that what gold needs to get back its shine is a rebound in the U.S. economy. As you know, this is exactly what recent data has suggested, and the metals have acted accordingly. The focus for some time here has been on the Fed's open market activity, and specifically the “sloshing” repo funds. After breaking the streak of reverses two weeks ago with a modest $3 billion net addition, last week concluded with a net add of $6.75 billion. In a rate-targeting regime, this reflects perception of a stronger economy driving demand for more base money, and the overall liquidity is an ideal environment for appreciation of precious metal.

Cycle Turn and Trend Indicators and a Look at Crude Oil and Gasoline / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Tim_Wood

Earlier this past week I had intermediate-term sell signals on both crude oil and unleaded gasoline. Given that we are just now approaching the hurricane and summer driving seasons, I have to wonder if these signals are going to be brief or if they are discounting the season ahead and if lower energy prices truly lie ahead.

Silver: The Long Term View / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Roland_Watson

Back in the depression year of 1932 silver was suffering. It had hit a low price of 24 cents per troy ounce as the forces of deflation assaulted commodities across the board. Could things get any worse as no end seemed in sight to the widespread massacre of assets across America and the world?

As it turned out, this was the nadir year for silver as prices began an upturn that led to a zenith as yet unparalleled. Between 1932 and 1980 silver advanced from 24 cents to 50 dollars an ounce. That is a 200-fold increase over 48 years!

China Diversifying Reserves into Equities and into Gold? / Commodities / China Economy

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Last year the Chinese government decided to change its policy on the composition of its reserves to reflect the composition of its trading partners. This was an effort to hold currencies sufficient to cover 'rainy days' with these partners. But as reserves are at levels way above those needed for a 'rainy day', the Chinese government finds itself holding well over a $ trillion more than it needs and this amount is rising by $250 billion a year and sure to rise.

Copper Long-Term Bull Market - 2 / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Zeal_LLC

Scott Wright writes : Five years into its amazing bull market, the king of the base metals continues to hold strong through a renewed onslaught of adversity. After an exciting 2006 that saw copper shatter all-time highs, this red metal continues to trade at levels that most thought improbable several years ago.

Copper's success has given it quality time in the spotlight which has ultimately garnered it increasing mainstream attention. Even on CNBC when headline metals quotes are periodically displayed, copper now shares real estate with gold and silver. But is the fame and fortune that copper had thrust upon it sustainable?

Silver has Turned the Corner with the Resumption of the Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Degraaf

The fundamental outlook for silver continues to be extremely bullish!

In 2003 I remember reading an article by Douglas Kanarowski titled: “ 70 Approaching Forces for Higher Silver prices ”. If Mr. Kanarowski were to re-write the article today, he could add several more reasons! [*]

Silver is being utilized more and more in nanotechnology applications. According to a recent report from NanoMarkets, a leading industry analyst firm based in California, the market for silver conductive inks is expected to rise from the current 176 million dollars per annum to 1.2 billion dollars during next 7 years. A seven-fold increase!
