Rise of the Barter Economy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImagine a day when you go to buy a quart of milk, ask the price, and the cashier says, "that'll be a tenth ounce silver." As the US dollar's decline accelerates, several efforts around the country are trying to make this vision a reality.

Historically, paying for items in silver or gold was actually quite common. We happen to live in an unusual time and place where generations have grown up trading exclusively in paper. While my parents still used dimes made of silver, we have now gone several decades with no precious metals in any of our official coinage. But this system of money by government fiat is unsustainable.

Gold Targets $1,800/oz on Seasonal Strength and Deepening Eurozone and U.S. Debt Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is trading at $1,504.13/oz, €1,039.34/oz and £933.89/oz.

Gold is higher today and showing particular strength against the euro and the Japanese yen. The relief rally seen in equities since the latest Greek ‘bailout’ is under pressure as S&P have said the debt rollover proposal would be a “selective default”. The ECB may selectively reject the S&P Greek downgrade and arbitrarily select the best credit rating being offered.

Gold Price Downside Limited / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite some calling for an explosive summer rally in gold, prices fell again this week on the back of easing concerns over Greek sovereign debt as the Greek parliament successfully passed the austerity legislation required to access additional bailout funds. This was due to the erosion of what we call gold's "Eurozone Debt Crisis Premium" and, as explained in our article last week; gold prices were not likely to rally in any sustainable manner. However the question is where are gold prices heading from now and how should one go about trading or investing in this environment.

Corn Price Gets Creamed / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCorn prices took a two-day shellacking last week, settling under $6 a bushel for the first time since last December. Traders were caught wrong-footed, expecting wet weather to have slowed corn planting.

Weather didn't get in the way of economics. The US Department of Agriculture said last week that surveys conducted during the first two weeks of last month found farmers had planted 92.3 million acres of corn, the second most since World War II after 93.5 million acres in 2007.

Crude Oil Price CouldĀ Double / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have not written anything about the bull market in Crude since November. And that piece was more directed toward Natual Gas, which continues to drift along with a slight upward bias. We are not going to get into the fundamentals that are driving Crude prices higher; i.e. peak oil, quantitative easing, tax issues and simply growing energy demand from the emerging economies. This is more of a technical report using the principles of OEW with price and cycle analysis.

Got Physical Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Anthony_David

According to the annual report released by metals consultancy GFMS Limited for The Silver Institute, the annual industrial demand for silver will grow from about 487.4 million ounces recorded in 2010 to 665.9 million ounces in 2015. While emerging technologies are expected to contribute significantly to this demand, it is apparent that established uses will still be the major demand driver.

Getting Used to Life without Food, Wall Street, BP, Bio-ethanol and Death of Millions / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy late grandfather, a man of sturdy Norwegian-American farm stock, who later became a newspaper editor and political activist during the First World War, used to say, 'A man can get used to pretty much anything with time, except dying...and even that with some practice.' Well, as fate has it, it seems we, the vast majority of the human race, are about to test that adage in regard to the availability of our daily bread itself.

Food is one of those funny things it's hard to live without. We all tend to take it for granted that our local supermarket will continue to offer whatever we wish, in abundance, at affordable prices or nearly so. Yet living without adequate food is the growing prospect facing hundreds of millions, if not billions, of us over the coming years.

Gold and Silver Investors, Don't Underestimate The Chinese / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePremier Wen Jiabao has just completed a tour of Europe. When you listen to the media, they will inform you of the benefits to the countries visited, but there is another agenda that is not highlighted. Look at what is happening in China -- gold markets and the activities of the central bank in that market -- and a very clear picture emerges of what is likely to happen with gold as China moves towards its prime objectives.

Gold and Silver Stocks Form Positive Divergence / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's often said that commodity shares should lead the actual commodities. While this isn't always the case, it often is at market turning points. Months back we noted the relative weakness in Gold and Silver shares and deemed it a reason for caution. It took more than a few weeks but our caution was vindicated as Gold and Silver shares fell more than 20% in April and May. Now we are seeing the reverse which should delight gold bugs and gold bulls alike.

Gold and Silver Crossing Halfway on an Annual Race / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe first half of 2011 is over. With the summer solstice just behind us we would like to review the first half of 2011 and look at what is ahead. Last year gold gained 26%, its third double-digit gain of the last four years. So far this year has been choppy. The yellow metal has risen 19.5 per cent this year to trade at about $1,500 a troy ounce buoyed by the emergence of sovereign debt concerns in the US as well as Eurozone debt woes. Since 2011 has begun, gold prices got hit with double-digit selloffs and rallies. The common culprit is the so-called “rebalancing", which is when traders who bought gold at the end of the year to show they owned it, dumped it in 2011 to take a profit. The same traders jumped back into the gold trade in February and March as violence exploded throughout the Middle East and North Africa region and Japan contended with its worst disaster since World War II.

Gold Global Supply / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConsidering gold’s outstanding fundamentals, it’s no surprise that demand has stayed strong a decade into its bull.  And with demand only expected to strengthen in the years to come, a lot of weight rests on the shoulders of gold’s suppliers.

In order for this yellow metal to find an economic balance, consumers rely on a supply chain that had been quite consistent over the years.  The major supply sources of mine production, recycling, and central-bank sales had worked in symphony to meet demand.  Unfortunately over the course of gold’s bull this supply chain has grown increasingly inconsistent and unreliable, with these sources exhibiting extreme volatility.
