Nuclear Fusion Milestone Could Provide Power For Thousands of Years / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael A. Robinson writes: For decades, researchers have toiled away in the quest to provide nuclear power that is cheap, safe, and stable.

And for just as long, skeptics have said their work will never pay off.

Gold Optimism Reality Check / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistory shows that one cannot “manipulate” a primary trend (and maybe not even a secondary trend)

Despite all the optimistic noises regarding recent movements of the gold price, the chart below (3% X 3 box reversal Point & Figure chart, courtesy stockcharts.com) is still showing $1109 as the prevailing target price. The gold price will need to rise to $1833 for that target to be negated.

Intermarket Explanation for Coming Gold Market Bubble / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we travel to Toronto for the Cambridge House conference, we thought we’d share a few points from our upcoming presentation titled “The Setup for a Gold Bubble.” There are many different ways we can analyze this. By that we mean fundamental triggers, historical ratios, valuations and potential money flows, etcetera can explain the setup for and why this bull market will become a bubble. Today, we focus on intermarket analysis, which is one of our favorite subsets of technical analysis.

Silver and the Myth of Diminishing Returns From QE / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is lots of talk in the financial media about how there are diminishing returns from QE (i.e. money printing) with each successive round of counterfeiting. This is only true because such commentators are stuck in paperbug world and focusing on common stocks. But common stocks are in a secular bear market, so it makes sense that there could be diminishing returns on common equities related to bailing out banks and governments by destroying the purchasing power of the currencies of the world.

QE3, SPR Release and Gasoline Prices / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith crude oil accounting for 65% of the price of gasoline, there's typically a high correlation between the price of oil and gasoline. However, there's been a disconnect between the two for the most part of this year. The main reason for the disconnect is the divergence of supply market fundamentals.

An astute reader from Atlanta named Ken wrote the following in a letter to me:

Gold Long Term Bull Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick McGough writes: The Gold Bull market started during the first quarter of 2001, and has now been in play for approximately 11 1/2 years. Commodity cycles tend to have 13 year bull markets and 21 year bear markets. This completes a 34 year cycle and for the moment Gold appears to be in the last 1-1 1/2 years of this cycle. Fortunately for us traders this tends to be the most explosive part of the cycle. In the actual economy Gold really does not serve as a commodity but as a currency. If this were not the case why do central banks accumulate or hold gold as reserves? The yellow metal is truly the currency of last resort.

Crude Oil Prices are Headed Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Kent Moors writes: My latest trip to London may have centered on the briefings I gave on Iranian oil sanctions, but I also did a number of media appearances.

As I have mentioned before, questions from European interviewers are generally more knowledgeable and to the point than in the states. This may be because places like London are much closer to the events directly affecting oil prices.

The Great Graphite Supply Shakeup / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors who remember the lithium boom (and bust) a few years ago may be twice shy to enter a space with big upside potential tied to electric vehicles. But the parallels between graphite and lithium are superficial, insists Simon Moores, analyst with Industrial Minerals. Graphite, unlike lithium, supplies layers of demand, with reliable end-users in the steel industry. Meanwhile, China's production lull is making way for market entrants. In this exclusive interview with The Critical Metals Report, Moores profiles graphite miners around the world competing for the market's attention.

Measuring Gold Fiat Currency Performance Since 1971 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1971 President Nixon closed the window that allowed U.S. dollars to be sold for gold owned by the U.S. Just before that, the price of gold was $35 an ounce. Since then gold has been called a 'barbarous relic', a term used by Keynes, the famous economist.From that time on, the world's currencies stood merely on the confidence their governments engendered and the control they exercised over international financial dealings of all kinds. That confidence lasted until 2007 when the credit crunch brought government financing on both sides of the Atlantic into question. Up until now the performance of the underlying value of currencies has hidden these questions as exchange rates are adequately 'managed' through swap arrangements to stabilize exchange rate movements to the extent that violent moves don't happen. But the real value of currencies in terms of their real solvency is now a matter of open debate. As of now, relative to the amount of gold available to markets, the price of gold is the only measure of value that currencies can be held to. We look at that and look at the conditions that are determining the value of currencies now and in the future.

QE and the Commodity Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the recent announcements of the ECB’s OMT program, (outright monetary transactions), and the FED’s QE 3 program, (open ended asset purchases), we were forced to not only review the equity markets, but also the commodity markets. We updated the commodity charts last weekend. Those who review our public charts, on a regular basis, are one step ahead of this report. We will start with a review of the GTX (S&P GSCI Commodity Index), then all five of its sectors.
