Should Investors Reconsider Cash and Gold as Safe-Havens? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The staggering global debt crisis continues to linger on in the financial markets, as a country as small as Greece is unable to successfully deal with its debt addiction.  Greece is certainly not alone in this mess, which has investors worldwide seeking out safe-haven instruments such as cash and precious metals.  However, as markets and regulations change, investors are forced to rethink their safe-haven choices.  Cash is considered to be king, but how well is this notion holding up in today’s market?

A New Reason Gold Stocks Will Soar / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research writes: There are a number of reasons why many of us believe gold stocks will shoot for the moon before this bull market is over – they've done so many times in the past… the gold price still has a long way to climb… and producers are generating record revenue and profits. But I think there's another reason why gold stocks will soar – one that hasn't dawned on many in the industry yet.

Gold Odysseus Journey Continues! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is the Odysseus of the markets, destined to wonder the hinterland of the financial world for years without achieving the deserved safe haven status. Like Odysseus gold will eventually arrive and the general population will embrace it for what it is, the one and only store of wealth that exists today. Loathed and assailed by the mainstream press, gold is deliberately kept hidden in the financial shadows by those that continue to shovel out paper “assets” like so much manure. Right now the Dow is all the rage with the press as they preach the gospel of the US stock market as a port in the storm. They do so with an old time religious fervor that would make a snake oil salesman blush. The object of the message is to pry that last penny from the hands of the last widow and orphan left standing. Value be damned! There is always a greater fool out there who will want your paper asset at some higher price.

Where a Nation's Gold and Your Gold Should be Held / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePurpose of Holding Gold

Most central banks hold their nation's gold in the vaults of the world's leading financial centers' central bank vaults. These include New York, London, and Canada among others. In a peaceful, cooperative world, this is sensible as one of the prime purposes of central banks holding gold is to cover the nation's international trade payments when their own currency becomes unacceptable and their reserves of foreign exchange are depleted. By positioning the gold outside the country, it's instantly accessible for payments or guarantees of payments.

Gold and Silver Remain Strong as Greece Debt Nears Deadline / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Precious metals posted their worst daily performance of the year on Friday.  A stronger-than-expected, but highly criticized unemployment report added strength to the U.S. recovery story and the dollar.  Now, the U.S. dollar continues to climb higher as Greek politicians struggle to agree on an austerity plan that is needed in order to secure another bailout for the country.  Although the euro is giving a boost to the dollar, gold and silver continue to maintain key support levels.

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter prices fell 10 percent in December, many investors wondered if the bull market in gold was running out of steam. That was before Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke swooped in with a "red cape" and fired the bulls back up.
