Palladium Metal Investing Primer / Commodities / Palladium

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOften lost in the shuffle and the talk about gold and silver as the primary precious metals is another metal, which has uses that rival that of silver, is brilliant in appearance and makes a beautiful coin. Its value has quadrupled since 2003 after seeing an all-time high in 2001, and potentially the best aspect yet is that the supply and demand fundamentals have never been better. Guess it yet? I’m talking about palladium. Over the next several pages, we’ll take a look at the many uses for palladium, who the big producers and consumers are, prices, and most importantly, the future outlook. The purpose of this article is not to form specific recommendations, but rather to raise awareness of another of the semi-precious metals and to act as a primer for familiarizing people on its fundamentals.

The following comments and developments have all been reported just this month. It presents quite a convincing case when one strings them together like this. Keep in mind that this is what these analysts and managers are telling their clients.

Coundown to U.S. Debt Default, Dollar Under Pressure, Gold Market Active / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday, 3 August 1971 – Treasury secretary John Connally yesterday urged US banks not to follow the Bank of Michigan, the Financial Times reported, after the small bank raised its key lending rate from 6% to 6.5%.

Instead, US banks should look to "hold prime rate down", said Connally, adding that "Further unjustified increases in interest rates, already historically high, might well jeopardize the strength of business recovery.

Gold Faces Short-Term Price Trap / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Although I believe gold still faces a very rosy future, an agreement in Washington that avoids default and growing concerns of a global economic slowdown could create significant near-term headwinds for gold investors.

Uranium Bull Market / Commodities / Uranium

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNuclear power has been a hot topic of recent.  And as a result, the price action of its input commodity has been quite schizophrenic.  Investors and speculators are in a state of great wonderment over what to expect from this intriguing mineral that is mined for energy.

Based on its core strategic fundamentals, investors ought to be wildly bullish on uranium’s future.  But with a veil of uncertainty cast over it thanks to the tragic Fukushima disaster, should we be looking at the future differently?  Of course only time will tell how things play out.  But based on cold-hard rationality, my money is on a future where nuclear power is an indispensible part of the world’s energy infrastructure.

Will the Debt Ceiling Debate Coincide with Short-term Ceiling for Gold and Silver? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere are two words that Americans and the rest of the world have not paid much attention to until now: DEBT CEILING. The debt ceiling drama has been keeping Americans on the edge of their seats – and they better hold on tight as those seats could get repossessed on August 2.  It’s as if American’s national credit card, member since 1776, is valid only through 08/02/11. In a nutshell, the debt ceiling is America’s legal limit on borrowing, and the country is maxed out until Congress increases it.

Gold and Silver Unaffected by Debt Crisis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the silver price riveted to the gold price, what happens to gold, applies to silver.

Right now the markets are really starting to wind up over the debt ceiling confrontations. The weekend of U.S. political strife is on the world. It is so easy for the markets and commentators to lead us to believe that the gold and silver prices are rising because of this, but we emphasize that they are not!

Are Gold and Silver Support and Resistance Levels Holding? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Eric_McWhinnie

As I write this, the great debt debacle continues. The House vote on the GOP debt plan, scheduled to take place Thursday night, has been delayed. The markets finally seem to be pricing in the financial mess in Washington, as the S&P 500 (NYSE:SPY) fell 2% on Wednesday, and also closed lower on Thursday. Surprisingly, gold (NYSE:GLD) and silver (NYSE:SLV) have been declining this week as well.

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Although Barclays Capital (NYSE:BCS) released a report recently that inflows into commodity markets fell sharply as the first half of 2011 ended, commodities in general have shown strength.

Gold Top Devil’s Advocate / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Toby_Connor

The persistent and mindless bullishness on gold lately has got me nervous. When I get nervous the first thing I do is pull up a multi-year chart and look at the big picture.

A couple of things are apparent when one looks at the chart below. First as I've noted many times in the past gold has a tendency to move above a big round number before topping. It did it at $1025, $1225, $1432, and gold recently tagged $1630.

Bayonets and Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe history of fiat money has always been one of failure - every fiat currency since the Romans started diluting the silver content of their denarius has ended in devaluation and eventual collapse of both the currency and of that particular economy. Most paper money economies downfall can be linked to the costs of financing out of control military growth and its wars.
