The Truth About High Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Walter_Brasch

Gas prices at the pump during the July 4th extended weekend were the highest they have been in six years. This, of course, has little to do with supply-and-demand economics. It has everything to do with supply-and-gouge profits.

Over the past decade, the five largest oil companies have earned more than $1 trillion in profits. Last year, the Big Five—BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil, and Shell—earned about $93 billion in profits. Their CEOs last year earned an average of about $20 million. Included within the profits is $2.4 billion in taxpayer subsidies because it’s hard to make a living when your hourly wage, assuming you work every hour of every day, is only $2,283.

Could China Make Your Smartphone Disappear? / Commodities / Rare Earths

By: Money_Morning

Oil and Energy Investor Staff writes: The mines where iPhones are born – along with Toyota Priuses, wind turbines, lasers, disc drives, automotive catalytic converters, and many other indispensable elements of modern technology – may look like giant craters.

But they’re really battlegrounds in the geopolitical power grab known as the “Great Game.” And just as the balance of power among the U.S., China, the Middle East, and other nations is continually shifting in the energy industry, so, too, are there power struggles over the minerals we call rare earths: the elements critical to thousands of high-tech devices.

Gold And Silver Price Trend Change Developing, Just Not Confirmed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

If you never read a newspaper, listened to television/radio, or read any one of the numerous blogs that exist and were left with just charts to look at, the information contained in the them would put you head and shoulders above everyone else.

Why?

Charts contain the resulting input from all the decision-makers, from the most informed to the least informed, and the aggregate information that can be gleaned from news, regardless of source, including blogs and so-called expert opinions can not be superior to that combination of price and volume over time, found in the charts.

Black Gold: Oil Option Trade Setup – Will Oil Bounce? Who Cares! / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Oil futures were on the tip of every political and financial pundits’ tongues less than a month ago as geopolitical tensions in Iraq heated up. Fast forward to today, and tensions in the Middle East have intensified further. However, since June 25th oil prices have been falling fast.

Massive Gold and Silver Futures Buying / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Both gold and silver have enjoyed massive buying by American futures speculators in recent weeks.  It all started with Fed chair Janet Yellen’s cavalier dismissal of inflation, but the buying momentum persisted well after that.  Happening in the midst of the summer doldrums when global precious-metals investment demand is weak, this is an exceptionally-bullish portent.  It is setting up the PMs for a major autumn upleg.

Crude Oil Price Time for Recovery? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

On Thursday, crude oil gained 0.94% as profit taking and upbeat U.S. jobless claims data supported the price. As a result, the commodity bounced off a very important support zone and came back above $102 per barrel. Does it mean that the bottom of the recent correction is in?

Although crude oil hit a 2-month low of $101.55, declining to slightly below the June low, the commodity reversed and rebounded as traders who had bet on falling prices made purchases yesterday to close those positions.

Silver in the Aftermath of Fragility / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Despite the persistence of the recovery meme, financial markets are more fragile to risk than ever before. On top of this, witness the slow creep of policy disguised as regulation. It comes for the low hanging fruits. The final labors of society. What lies ahead is a paper blood bath.

The Perfect Crime and the Plight of the Modern Silverite / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Silver is not just any old commodity. It is old money. Despite massive efforts and price fixing, clipping and manipulation, it has remained central to monetary and political systems for centuries. Today it is small and relatively dark in the context of modern investing.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. And the desperation to buy and hold metal should simply be proportional to the desperation of the will of the monetary powers to maintain the status quo.

Unwinding Unallocated Gold Accounts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The debate in precious metal markets today is whether or not the three-year bear market is over and a new uptrend is establishing itself. But assuming for a moment that the gold price has turned the corner, will the bullion banks be able to keep a lid on it? Given the recent jump in their short positions as recorded in the Bank Participation Report on Comex, they presumably think so, and unallocated accounts in London will play an important role.

Commodities - Three Cheers for The Fear Trade! / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Clif_Droke

The long-anticipated summer rally for the precious metals (PM) sector gained strength this week even as the U.S. broad market stumbled. The recent plunge in small cap stocks isn't an unrelated phenomenon, however; it's one of the reasons behind the rally in the PM sector. In this commentary we'll examine the main drivers behind the latest push to multi-week highs for gold and silver.

Are You Ready for Doubles and Triples in Uranium Mining Stocks? / Commodities / Uranium

By: The_Energy_Report

Are you brave enough to buy straw hats in winter? From uranium to oil services to lithium, savvy investors can find innovative ways to make money based on fundamental supply and demand rather than emotion and fashion. In this interview with The Energy Report, Gold Stock Trades editor Jeb Handwerger outlines the trends that will shape the future of energy commodity investing, and names some of the best examples of shabby chic stocks worth more than their current price tags.

The Energy Report: Jeb, in past interviews you have talked about the boost that the end of the Russian nuclear material purchase agreement would have on uranium prices. But lately, the price has dropped. What is causing the most recent decline?

Silver Price, Asset Boom and Inflation Ahead? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Investmentscore.com

The "price" of anything is a measurement of something just as a "mile" is a measurement of something. A mile measures distance, a "gallon" measures volume and a "pound" measures weight. But because the actual "value" of a currency can fluctuate, the "price" of the food in the grocery store to the "price" of a share of a stock exchange can move up and down without a change in value of the item itself.

Fossils, Fuels and Zombies / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Raul_I_Meijer

As fear begins to scare the vanguard of the herd into what may develop into a rampage, the eurocrisis is back with a vengeance. Portuguese bank Esperito Santo leads the way down through missed payments, bringing the Lisbon exchange to its knees with a -4.5% plunge as I write this, with northern EU exchanges showing -1.5% losses and southern ones -2.5%. Markets start to realize than all PIIGS now have much higher state debts than before the crisis started, and that they still are very much big risks, no matter what Draghi and his never fired bazooka say. The same Draghi who, by the way, reiterated once again that Brussels should be given more – and more centralized – power. As if the May election never happened. Of course EU finances were always a mess; it’s just that now we can see it.

Gold Price Bracing for a Short-Term Correction / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jim_Curry

In my prior article from back in early-June, I noted that a short-term bottom was due, which had been projected for the June 2nd timeframe, plus or minus a day. The actual low for Gold was registered the very next trading day, doing so on June 3rd at the 1240.20 figure. Since then, we have seen a rally of over $100 playing out with the metal, which is now looking for a short-term correction in the days/weeks ahead.

Gold and Silver Stocks: It's Old Turkey Time! / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Those familiar with Jesse Livermore and the book Reminiscences of a Stock Operator know who Old Turkey is. He was Mr. Partridge, an old trader who dispensed great wisdom in few words. Those at the office nicknamed him Turkey because of the way in which he strutted around with his chest puffed out. Livermore gleaned wisdom from Old Turkey which included the importance of never losing one's position and placing the utmost importance on the major trend. "It's a bull market," he often repeated. Precious metals shares are breaking out again after a brief consolidation. It's time to channel your inner Old Turkey, realize this is a bull market and act accordingly.

Gold and Silver Miners The Beginning of the End! / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Rambus_Chartology

I think today's price action marks a very important confirmation point in the precious metals stock indexes, at least for the intermediate to longer term outlook. Finally, after a year of chopping around in small up and down moves, we are starting to get some confirmation that this one year trading range is indeed a reversal pattern and not a consolidation pattern. When a big patterns like this ends is when you get the big impulse moves which is where you make the real money.

Keys to Successful Gold Stock Picking / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

Chris Mancini, an analyst with the Gabelli Gold Fund, spends his days finding value in gold equities—and he thinks he's found a recipe for success. Take a long-term outlook, add excellent management, fold in a great project in a quality jurisdiction with low-cost minable ounces in the ground at a huge discount to the spot price—et voila! Mancini calls this "optionality" and in this interview with The Gold Report he says that equities with optionality will not only survive the downturn but also provide excellent leverage to an inevitable upward move in the gold price. Check out some rising names in the Gabelli Gold Fund.

The Gold Report: Cash has flown out of gold funds and into non-gold equities during this bear run in gold. What's the current Gabelli Gold Fund pitch to investors?
