Is the Commodities Boom Over? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world’s economy is passing through a low growth environment and this is in stark contrast to the first half of the last decade, when we had a global boom.  Today, Europe is on the brink of recession, the US economy is growing at only 2% per year and it appears as though China is facing a major slowdown.  Given these circumstances, we are of the view that the prices of natural resources will struggle to retain last decade’s momentum.

Is Auditing the Fed Positive for Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Vin_Maru

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJuly 25, 2012 should go down in history as the date the Federal Reserve may become fully accountable to the US government. A motion to pass the bill as amended was unanimously approved by the house to require a full audit of the boards of governors of the Federal Reserve System and banks. This will be done by the Comptroller General of the US before the end of 2012 and they are required to issue their report within 12 months of enactment.  The votes in the House in the bill’s passing this was 326 yea votes to 99 nay votes with 7 non votes.  Interestingly enough it was the Republicans that strongly supported this bill with 239 yea and 1 nay vote, while the Democrats voted 88 yea and 98 nay.

Keys For the Next Gold Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold's historic run-up from $250 to nearly $2,000 an ounce in the last 10 years has underlined the long-term value and intrinsic worth of a key asset. It has also provided a fabulous, once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunity for many individuals, not to mention a long-term momentum trade for both retail and institutional investors.

Is Gold Ready for Run to New All Time High? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: David_Banister

Just under two weeks ago I updated my subscribers with a chart pattern on the GLD ETF, and in that update we discussed what to look for to find clues in this GOLD consolidation that has continued from last August-September highs. My theory all along has been that we peaked in a “Wave Three” top at 1900-1920 last fall after a Fibonacci 34 month rally from $681 per ounce. The ensuing corrective patterns are part of a normal “Wave 4” consolidation that works off the sentiment and overbought nature of that wave 3 updraft. Following this consolidation, I fully expect GOLD to continue past the $1900 per ounce area and run to $2300 per ounce or higher in a Wave 5 rally into the summer of 2013.

The Hidden Cost of Peak Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Most of what you've heard about "peak oil" is wrong.

In fact, there's a hidden cost to peak oil that's very real. And it's coming to a pump near you any day now.

I know you've read the same headlines that I have...how we are going to "frack" our way to energy independence by exploiting shale oil and other unconventional sources.

Gold and Silver in Deflation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs global growth is being downgraded by the I.M.F. from 3.5% to 3.1% fears that the Eurozone is already in a recession and the U.S. is likely to enter one next year, are growing. As the world becomes more and more familiar with the economic and financial climate investors are realizing that economic life is far from simple and that growth is not something that governments or central banks can turn on or off.

Anatomy of Future Gold and Silver Price Bubble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn recent commentaries we've written about the three phases of a bull market and how and why the final phase evolves as it does. Valuations, sentiment and market structure all explain why markets take a dramatic upward turn in the final phase after relatively stagnant performance in the previous phase. These are the "micro" behind why a bubble emerges in the final phase. Today we want to look at the intermarket driving forces behind the emergence of a bubble.

Gold Continues To Move Towards The Financial System / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Vin_Maru

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is currently estimated that the largest 110 central banks have 16% of their reserves as gold.  Anyone who follows the gold market knows that many central banks have become net buyers of gold in the last few years, and the pace of accumulation seems to be growing.  While central banks continue to accumulate gold, the misinformed mainstream media are still chanting the “gold is in a bubble” mantra.   What they are not acknowledging is the clear evidence that the highest level of bankers and regulators are proposing that gold become a Tier 1 asset class with zero risk, which can also be used for collateral in financial transactions.

Defining “Intrinsic Value” in Gold and Silver Investing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mainstream financial media touts a variety of 'anti-inflation' investments that can be used to protect wealth against the ravages of inflation. These typically range from buying commodities like oil and coal to more sophisticated instruments like inflation-protected treasuries and annuities.

While such investments may appear to be inflation-proof on paper, none of these investment vehicles have the solid intrinsic value of gold, silver or any of the other precious metals.

China Gold and Silver Strategy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chinese currency the Yuan is still pegged to the U.S. Dollar at a level that undervalues it substantially, provoking criticism of this exchange rate policy. The world still believes that China cannot survive and prosper without the West to fund its development, and so most analysts are focused on a hard landing for China.

Nevertheless, what is really happening is that new currency swaps are forming the backdrop of Chinese metals accumulation and production. In essence, China is gradually amassing the lion’s share of global wealth in the form of hard assets.

The Calm Before the Storm, Gold Bullion Will Benefit / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLate last week when reading the World Gold Council’s Gold Investment Statistic’s commentary, we were reminded of when Doug Casey said ‘“inevitable” is not the same thing as “imminent.”’

As we keep mentioning on these pages the financial situation, which has been snowballing for over 40 years, will continue to do so and in the process those who decided to invest in gold bullion will benefit.
