A Weak Economy Remains Gold's Best Friend / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was Bob Prechter of Elliott Wave fame, likely among others who noted that correlations between all asset classes are quite strong during a Depression. This is true in a cyclical sense but not in a structural sense. Stocks tumbled in the 1929-1941 period while commodities, led by Gold and gold producers, increased in value. We've experienced similar phenomena in the past 12 years. Cyclically, there has been a correlation between these asset classes. Structurally, stocks have been in a bear market and resource sector has been in a bull market. The driving force has been a weak economy and bear market which usually leads to more inflationary policy, which in turn benefits the resource sector. Are we soon to see a replay of this scenario?

Manganese Production Gearing Up Worldwide / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleManganese may be the fourth most used metal in the world but last year ended on a relatively weak note for manganese products. While Chinese ports had large stockpiles of manganese ore, the weak demand for steel long products was reflected in a weak demand for manganese. The economic uncertainty and low business confidence in Europe and the USA were key reasons for the lack of interest in manganese. The recovery of the construction industry in these regions would certainly be a big boost to the manganese market and prices would firm up by 2013.

Rare Earths Industry Expanding Outside China’s Borders / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleColorado based Molycorp Inc. is one of the few non-Chinese mining companies develop-ing rare earth metal mines. The company’s shares shot up by over 7% when it announced that its Mountain Pass rare earth mine in California contained at least 36% more proven or probable reserves than earlier estimated. The deposit is now estimated to contain about 2.94 billion pounds of rare earth oxide equivalent, an amount that is about 11 times the existing annual global demand of 120,000 tons. The number could rise further with progress in drilling.

Open Market Manipulation of the Gold and Silver Futures Market By Banks and Producers / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Marshall_Swing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals marketplace and even main street media is all abuzz about the 7,500 contract trade, in gold, on Monday, April 30th. Gold fell $15 in the space of a minute as many news outlets reported. Speculative traders think the trade could have been a fat finger. COMEX floor traders say otherwise and think the trade was deliberate just like any other trade because no one makes a trade of that size without specific instructions.

Gold Down in Dollars, Up in Euros, "Anemic" US Economy Misses Bernanke Jobs Target / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE SPOT MARKET gold price rallied to $1658 an ounce ahead of Wednesday's US trading, following the release of disappointing US jobs data – though gold in Dollars remained down on the week so far.

The ADP National Employment Report shows the US economy added 119,000 nonagricultural private sector jobs in April – less than many analysts had forecast. The ADP report is closely watched as a precursor to the official nonfarm payrolls report, which is out this Friday.

Crude Oil Supply And 'Peak Oil' Price Drivers / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeak Oil can be defined at least 4 ways but one way is simple: Peak Oil is when supplies and stocks are tight enough, relative to demand, to make price slides short and price hikes long. This will continue until and unless the economy tilts into recession through market forces, or by policy decision in response to either external or internal shocks. Examples of the second feature the post-2008 bank, finance and insurance sector crisis, and the sovereign debt crisis of many OECD countries since 2008.

The Acquisition of Gold Mining Stocks is a Question of Timing / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an attempt to maximize the profits on our investments we consider that the timing of any purchase of precious metals mining stocks to be of paramount importance. To that end we have not increased our exposure to this sector since our last purchase, which was in February 2011 and on reflection we are pleased with our decision to keep our powder dry until the opportunity presents itself whereby we bag a jolly good bargain.

The Gold Inflation Trade is On: Bernanke Has Broken the U.S. Dollar Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt may not seem like much happened yesterday, but a very important event occurred. Yesterday the dollar index breached 78.65. The reason that is significant is because 78.65 marked the intraday low of the prior daily cycle. A penetration of that level indicates that the current daily cycle has now topped in a left translated manner and a new pattern of lower lows and lower highs has begun. Any time a daily cycle tops in a left translated manner it almost always indicates that the intermediate cycle has also topped.

The Central Bankers' Gold Price Manipulation Footprints or "Fat Fingers"? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Mario_Innecco

There has been a great deal of talk about intervention in the currency markets and especially in gold and silver of late. Zero Hedge has done a great job investigating the central banks' banker called the Bank for International Settlements or the B.I.S.. Yeasterday gold dropped almost $15 out of the blue and many in the mainstream are saying that it was a "fat finger" which happens when a trader or a broker input the wrong price and/or amount onto their trading systems thereby causing unusual price movements

Crude Oil Supply & Demand Outlook Remains Favorable for Producers / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy outlook for crude oil prices remains relatively unchanged since the beginning of 2012. Potential demand destruction brought on by persistently high oil prices should limit upside for oil prices.

That being said, don’t assume that US oil demand is collapsing because of elevated oil prices and sluggish economic growth.

Canola, the New Canadian Gold / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen last we visited on Agri-Foods, 2012 was declared Year of the Soybean. That certainly seems to be the way prices are acting. Since the beginning of 2012 the U.S. dollar price of soybeans has risen by near 28%, more than twice the performance of the S&P 500's 12%. Seems some farmers, particularly in the Midwestern U.S. soybean region, are beating the Street again. Importantly, such results are not an aberration. Since early 2007, a little more than five years ago, soybean prices are up more than a 100%, a quite favorable comparison to the S&P 500 being off by ~3%. Little wonder that Agri-Land prices have been so strong.

Critical Factors that will Impact Silver Market Price / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Steve_St_Angelo

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe fundamentals for silver today are even better than they were last year when its price and sentiment were higher.  Nevertheless, consumer affinity for precious metals has turned rather pessimistic presently.  This may be indicated by those who see a rise in the COMEX silver inventories as well as a drop-off in Silver Eagle purchases.  Furthermore, our favorite so-called precious metals analysts (more like Bears in a Bull’s skin) have come out of the woodwork to rub it in that the “GOLD BULL MARKET IS NOW OVER.”

Return to the Gold Standard? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are times, my friends Michael Lewitt and Dr. Lacy Hunt agreed today at lunch, when the study of economics is best informed by a sound knowledge of history. Indeed, Michael's son wants to follow his father into the finance world, and Michael is starting him off in history. I have spent hours listening to Lacy stroll through economic history, detailing the path of economic thought from Fisher to Kindleberger to Minsky. The last few days have been one of those times when I realized how much I don't know and how much more there is to learn. Not only Lacy and Michael are here in Florida, but a long list of bright minds to learn from. James Rickards, who has recently written the tour de force book Currency Wars, Harry Dent, Doug Casey, Porter Stansberry, Greg Weldon, and John Williams of Shadow Stats, with whom I look forward to meeting (do I have questions for him!). And so many more.
