Is There A Fair Market Price For European Energy? / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe coming of "energy market liberalization" in Europe was a slow and cumbersome, top down process which started in the 1980s, surfing on the Neoliberal wave launched by the Thatcher-Reagan duo, but EML was not a Commission buzzword until well into the 1990s. Today it is everywhere - now called EMR or energy market regulation, that is de-regulation - and not only private consumers, but industrial users are beginning to say no because they fear a chaotic, high priced energy future.

Gold Stocks, How Undervalued? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article is really about potential energy. The coming gold stock mania is gathering essential potential ahead of the most exciting capital growth opportunity we may witness in our lifetimes. As if this was not valuable enough, it will occur as other assets continue to devalue. This is the role of gold for investors in a crisis. For the banks it may well assist them to regain confidence once it is completely lost.

Gold at Increasing Risks of Following Broad Market Lower / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe outcome of the Greek vote at the weekend was not favorable for the markets, or for Precious Metals in particular. This is because it did not precipitate an immediate worsening of the acute crisis in Europe, and thus did not create the pressure needed to bring forward the major QE that must eventually come in order to delay Europe's eventual complete collapse. Why then have markets not caved in already? - because investors are "smoking the hopium pipe" and waiting for the Fed to pull a rabbit out of the hat at Wednesday's FOMC meeting, by making positive noises to the effect that QE3 is ready to be rolled out. What is likely to happen instead is that they will come out with the same old line about "being ready to act when the SHTF" but other than that remain vague and non-commital. If this is what they do then markets are likely to throw a tantrum and sell off, and the charts are indicating that it could be hard.

Rising Eurozone Yields Will Push Gold Towards the Monetary System / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Simit_Patel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA trend I've been focusing on lately are the signs we are seeing of gold returning to the monetary system. Consider the signs:

1. Central banks continue to increase their purchases of gold, having become net accumulators of gold since 2009. The central bank of Kazakhstan purports to have 20% of its reserves in gold.
2. Banking standards from Basel III, an international banking institution, may be changing so as to give banks that hold gold a higher score.
3. The European Redemption Pact, an agreement to consolidate excess debt in the Eurozone, is allegedly discussing the idea of issuing Eurobonds that would be partially backed by gold.
4. In the United States, states like Utah are moving to restore gold's status as an officially recognized form of money.

Gold Stocks Comparing the 2012 Bottom to Past Bottoms / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark Twain said that history doesn't repeat itself but it rhymes. This is also true in the markets. No bull or bear market or particular event is ever the same. Yet, because there are similarities, the prudent analyst always studies history. When trying to foresee bottoms and tops we always compare current conditions (price action, sentiment, fundamentals) to past conditions. We continue to believe that the recent bottom in precious metals markets falls into a group of major bottoms that includes 2000-2001, 2005 and 2008. In today's piece we examine how these markets evolve following such bottoms which hopefully can give us an idea of what to expect in the coming weeks and months.

Prepare for the Pivot Point in the Gold Stocks Exploration Cycle / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

 

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistorically, major gold exploration has occurred when the Dow was down and out. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, geologist and Exploration Insights writer Quinton Hennigh talks about the coming gold rush and what that could mean for existing companies.

 

The Gold Report: While the NYSE Arca Gold BUGS Index (HUI) is up a bit from its May low, it is still lagging the price of gold and not living up to expectations based on the role it has traditionally played as a safe haven for investors. Are we close to a turning point in that dynamic?

Commodities Demand Speed Up or Slow Down--Don't Exit the Highway / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it comes to investing, wise managers are like good drivers, constantly evaluating the environment, looking for signs to step on the gas or slow down. A positive signal received recently came from Goldman Sachs, when the firm recommended "stepping back into the markets" in its latest Commodity Watch. Goldman is anticipating a 29 percent return for the S&P GSCI Enhanced Commodity Index over the next 12 months and suggests investors might want to increase their position in commodities.

Forestry Investments As Real Assets to Hedge Against Inflation / Commodities / Land

Plunge in Family Net Worth Supports Portfolio Gold Diversification / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Pete_Grant

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

The Fed’s triennial Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF) came out last week and the results were nothing short of astounding. The data show that the Great Recession wiped out nearly 40% of the typical American family’s net worth.

“Data from the 2007 and 2010 SCF show that median income fell substantially and that mean income fell somewhat faster, an indication that income losses, at least in terms of levels, were larger for families in the uppermost part of the distribution. Overall, both median and mean net worth also fell dramatically over this period—38.8 percent and 14.7 percent, respectively.”

Gold and Silver Price Discovery: At and Despite the Margins / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In most markets, price is discovered “at the margin” or from the transactions themselves. For example, in the real estate market, an entire block of homes can be valued by appraisers and agents based on the price at which the last house sold.

When it comes to precious metals prices, if discovery at the margin was a legitimate factor, the silver market would soon see much higher prices or it would at least reach a fairer equilibrium price that currently prevails.

Silver Metal Now and a Golden Traveler's Check / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the main advantages of buying silver versus more costly precious metals like gold and platinum is that silver’s relative cheapness allows you to buy more metal for the money.

Furthermore, inflation is a reality that eats away at the value of all paper currencies, while boosting the value of hard currencies like silver.

Crude Oil Demand Recovery Is Unlikely / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"World oil consumption will rebound next year as the global economy recovers, according to a report released by the Paris-based International Energy Agency which said it expects global oil demand to grow 1.7%, for an increase of 350,000 barrels per day from its previous estimate".

The only problem with the serial oil demand growth-forecasting reports from the IEA is the above example dates from.... September 2009. At that time, crude for November delivery was trading around $71.75 a barrel for WTI grade.

Is Silver Currently Riskier Than Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold futures closed higher edging past the $1,600 mark Wednesday, extending their advance to a fourth session - perhaps traders considered prospects for further quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve and other central banks, including the Bank of England, the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan.

Thursday Comex gold futures prices ended the U.S. day session near unchanged in subdued trading and today Gold edged up extending its winning streak to a sixth session as sluggish U.S. data boosted hopes for monetary easing.

Cheap Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold stocks have recovered sharply following last month’s panic-like capitulation plunge.  But this embattled sector still remains incredibly cheap relative to prevailing gold levels, which drive gold miners’ profits and hence ultimately their stock prices.  While it is very challenging psychologically to buy in deeply-out-of-favor sectors, the panic-like gold-stock bargains out there today are simply amazing.
