Gold "Lacks Upside Drivers"as Hurricane Sandy Closes US Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ben_Traynor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. DOLLAR gold prices dropped below $1710 an ounce Monday morning in London, below where they ended last week, after failing to hold onto gains made in Asian trading.

Silver prices dropped below $31.80 an ounce, also down from Friday's close, as European equities also fell. US stock markets will be closed today as a result of Hurricane Sandy – the first unscheduled US market closure since September 11 2001, and the first to be caused by weather since 1985.

Oil Prices: Global Markets Favor Brent Crude, Refineries Are Set to Advance / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Kent Moors writes: Brent and WTI crude oil prices have been on a downward trajectory. Recently Brent had declined for seven consecutive trading sessions while WTI had been down for five.

Given the importance these benchmarks have in pricing crude worldwide, it is useful to review what they are before talking about their widening spreads.

Is Santa Coming Early for Gold and Gold Mining Stocks? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you own physical gold, gold mining stocks or plan on buying anything related to precious metals before year end, you are likely going to get excited because of what my analysis and outlook shows.

Since gold topped abruptly a year ago (Sept 2011) with a massive wave of selling which sent the price of gold from $1920 down to $1535, technical analysts knew that type of damage which had be done to the chart pattern could take a year or more to stabilize before gold would be able to continue higher.

By: Clive_Maund

Renewable Energy: The Global Clean Tech Bubble - Part 2 / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Nicole_Foss

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleContinued from Part 1

Those who advocate for a complete shift to renewables often state that it would be possible if only the political will to fund the transition were available. In fact, funding programmes have been introduced in many jurisdictions, often on a very large scale. Capital grants and long term Feed-In Tariff (FIT) contracts have been introduced in many European countries and in other regions. Feed-In Tariffs, which typically offer a twenty year guaranteed income stream in order to overcome the investment risk, have often been the economic tool of choice. Some of these have been very generous, and the subsidy regimes have driven large investments in renewables for many years. The costs have been in the hundreds of billions of dollars, with projections for many times that much in the future, both for generation capacity and for the necessary infrastructure to service it:

Renewable Energy: The Vision And A Dose Of Reality - Part 1 / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Nicole_Foss

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn recent years, there has been more and more talk of a transition to renewable energy on the grounds of climate change, and an increasing range of public policies designed to move in this direction. Not only do advocates envisage, and suggest to custodians of the public purse, a future of 100% renewable energy, but they suggest that this can be achieved very rapidly, in perhaps a decade or two, if sufficient political will can be summoned. See for instance this 2009 Plan to Power 100 Percent of the Planet with Renewables:

A year ago former vice president Al Gore threw down a gauntlet: to repower America with 100 percent carbon-free electricity within 10 years. As the two of us started to evaluate the feasibility of such a change, we took on an even larger challenge: to determine how 100 percent of the world’s energy, for all purposes, could be supplied by wind, water and solar resources, by as early as 2030.

Oil Nationalism: Russia Versus Saudi Arabia / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTOO MUCH
In a week where Malaysia's Petronas' buyout bid for Calgary-based Progress Energy was rejected by the Canadian government, and the rejection called "resource nationalism" by Fitch ratings, Rosneft's buyout of TMK-BP is seen as Vladimir Putin's vehicle to regain state ownership of Russia's oil fields. Rosneft was firstly handed control over Yukos Oil in 2003, by Putin's government hitting Yukos with a $26-billion tax bill which bankrupted it, followed by Putin's bundling of Yukos founder, the billionaire Mikhail Khodorkovsky, into a Siberian prison. The present buyout of TNK-BP has Rosneft acquiring BP's 50% stake of the joint venture in exchange for cash and stock, for $27 billion.

Gold Mining Stock Margins Will Expand Further / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLongtime readers know that we are a fan of intermarket analysis. The movement of certain markets influences other markets so it is always wise to analyze a handful of markets rather than just a single market by itself. Several years ago we learned from others before us how intermarket analysis can help us get a handle on the margins of gold (and silver) miners. Generally, Oil (energy) represents about 25% of the cost of mining while industrial metals prices can be a proxy for the costs of trucks, chemicals and blasting agents (like cyanide). It has been a while since we’ve looked at these charts but with the gold stocks having put in a major bottom it is time to analyze whether it is sustainable or not.

Crude Oil Price Falls to a 3-Month Low: Why Blaming "Soft Economy" Isn't the Answer / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter a 4-day losing streak, on October 23 crude oil futures fell as low as $85.69 a barrel -- the lowest price since July.

Predictably, the mainstream energy market observers have blamed the drop on "global economic worries." Of course, we have pointed out before how, on one recent occasion, oil fell in the face of positive economic expectations. And on another recent occasion, oil fell despite the absence of any real news, period.

Putin Is the New Global Oil Shah / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research : Exxon Mobil is no longer the world's number-one oil producer. As of yesterday, that title belongs to Putin Oil Corp – oh, whoops. I mean the title belongs to Rosneft, Russia's state-controlled oil company.

Rosneft is buying TNK-BP, which is a vertically integrated oil company co-owned by British oil firm BP and a group of Russian billionaires known as AAR. One of the top-ten privately owned oil producers in the world, in 2010 TNK-BP churned out 1.74 million barrels of oil equivalent per day from its assets in Russia and Ukraine and processed almost half that amount through its refineries.
