Russia and Belarus Fight Over Oil Prices Again / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Pravda

Russia suspended oil shipments to Belarus on January 1 after the two sides failed to sign adequate agreements. The two countries can not come to a compromise regarding the prices. Oil transit to Europe via Belarus has not been interrupted.

"We are discussing price determination issues with Russian suppliers," Maria Kostyuchenko, the press secretary of Belarus's Belneftekhim stated. "We hope that the shipments will be resumed in January," she added saying that the oil reserves at Belarusian oil refineries would guarantee normal work before February.

Is JPM Covering Up a Naked Silver Short Held By China As a Claim Against the Yanks? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI freely admit that I have no inside knowledge of what is happening behind the scenes in the metals markets. But I do have a sense that things just do not seem to make sense, and the facts do not appear to fit the situation without some stretching.

And this is one of those cases where my curiosity gets piqued. And so this seemed to be of interest to me as it might be to you.

Gold Hits Lowest Close in Two Months / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Merv_Burak

Gold has hit its lowest closing level (but not yet its intra-day level) in almost two months.  The intermediate term momentum indicator is at its lowest level since early August.  The price action seems to be developing a weaker and weaker strength, not usually a good sign.

Silver Going Mainstream in 2011 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNever mind the correction in the price of silver, says Silver Strategies Editor Sean Rakhimov; better things are ahead. "It may be volatile; it may be steep; but it should be short-lived," he says, adding that he expects silver to rise well above its 2010 high at some point in 2011. Some of that price support could come from governments entering the silver market. Find out all the reasons for this and read about some of Sean's favorite silver plays in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report.

Understanding the Proper Use of Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor a couple of years now, many investors have been bombarded with claims of hyperinflation and a Zimbabwe-like fate for the U.S. dollar. These gold bugs would have you believe that gold has value as a form of currency. They have made these claims hoping that everyone will line up to buy gold, so as to raise the price.

The swarm of gold bugs has reached out to cover every crevice of the media, from television and radio networks to print media and the Internet. And their efforts have been quite effective. Today, gold ATMs are being rolled out across the U.S. to take advantage of the hype generated by this misguided and deceptive movement of gold pumpers.

Are Gold Pool Accounts Safe? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jeff_Clark

Jeff Clark, BIG GOLD writes: One of the cheapest ways to buy and store physical gold and silver is with unallocated (or pool) storage. With unallocated storage, a dealer holds metal that is owned by its customers, but without identifying any particular piece of metal belonging to any particular customer.

Silver SLV ETF Impact / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver’s massive autumn rally has utterly captivated speculators and investors, their appetite for all things silver is insatiable.  Interestingly a major driver of this metal’s recent surge was stock-market buying of the flagship silver ETF, SLV.  The larger and more popular this fund grows, the greater its ongoing impact on silver prices.

SLV was born in late April 2006, so it is relatively young as far as exchange-traded funds go.  Though its birth was shrouded in controversy, SLV has rapidly grown into a smashing success.  Now holding $10.2b worth of physical silver bullion in trust for its shareholders, it is already one of the world’s largest ETFs.  And as more stock investors get interested in silver exposure, SLV will only continue to grow.

How Far Does Gold Drop? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Farrish

Open any financial website or periodical and you can find plenty to read relative to the price of gold. Why the concerns and selling of gold currently? The short version is it comes down to the economic outlook. The US economy has been gradually improving along with the employment data and that has impacted part of the reason investors were buying gold, an alternative investment. The improving data out of Europe over the last couple of days relative to the sovereign debt issues facing the EU nations has been put to rest temporarily and that is pushing gold prices lower as well.

U.S. Dollar, Gold, & Silver Were Down on Thursday – Really? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. Dollar Index Futures have been sold heavily and interestingly enough, gold and silver have not rallied. In fact, gold and silver have sold off while the dollar experienced downward price action as well. How does that whole scenario make any sense? I do not fancy myself as an expert in the area of reasoning why a stock or commodity rises or falls. I firmly believe that the media is nearly always wrong as to the real reasons stocks and commodities are rallying or falling.

Changing to a Silver Economy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA libertarian in Columbia, South Carolina sent me a message recently. He works at a convenience store. He was interested in introducing silver as a means of payment or currency at this store. His specific ideas I thought would not work because of the taxes on silver. The government treats silver as a collectible subject to income taxes at ordinary rates. He had some ideas of buying bullion and then setting up a market in it by buying at a small discount to the spot price and selling at a small premium, thereby creating a bid-ask spread. He had some idea of getting people to transact in silver.

The Coming Flood of Yuan and Chinese Gold Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile China is taking a greater portion of our financial attention on a daily basis, it seems to us that the sheer size of China and its continued growth has not been factored into the world economic perspective, even now. One of the consequences of profit driven capitalism in the past was the relocation of manufacturing from high-cost, developed countries to the lower cost country of China. U.S. corporations that did that, have enjoyed better-than-ever profits, but in the process have educated new, Chinese, lower-priced competition that will overwhelm us all in the future. The enrichment of China and its arrival on the world scene will surpass the U.S. as the largest world economy by 2020 at the latest [we would not be surprised if this happened even before 2015]. This will trigger a financial tsunami that will change they way we think and invest.

Forgotten Treasure: Unconventional Crude Oil in the Middle East / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Marin_Katusa

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey’s Energy Report writes: As the conventional and cheap oil and gas start to dry up in the Middle East... a bigger, even better opportunity seeks to replace it.

For many who aren't familiar with the region, the Middle East comes across as an updated version of Lawrence's Arabia, only with lots of oil. But this mosaic of cultures isn't made up of only Arabs or Muslims, and most Middle East countries are neither awash with heavily armed, rather excitable citizenry... nor with black gold, which is what we're interested in. Twenty-three countries comprise the Arab League, but only Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Iran are major oil producers.

Who, How and Why: Crude Oil $140 and $5 Gas / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

According to a loosely-organized apocalyptic Christian movement, May 21, 2011 will be the "end of days." On or about that same date, the price of oil in the United States will begin to climb to $4 a gallon, according to two savants of the oil industry.

The former is highly unlikely but the latter is very probable.

Crude Oil Prices Push to Two-year High / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: LiveCharts

Oil prices closed at their highest level since October 28th after a settle price of $91.86 on Wednesday. The current (January 13) price is $91.79 on the New York NYMEX for one barrel of light sweet crude futures scheduled for February delivery.

Increased demand for oil, lower inventory levels, and speculative interest are credited for driving oil to its current levels.

Gold Versus Defective Economists and Delusional Leaders on Drugs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has always been my opinion that the so-called science of economics in its current form is victim to the problem of not being able to see the forest because of the trees. The fact that 60 percent of 242 members of the National Association for Business Economics think that the U.S. Federal Reserve is doing the world a favour by maintaining non-existent interest rates is hard evidence in support thereof. If you give something away (money) at no cost, then its value is zero. Something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. Why oh why do our illustrious leaders fail to grasp such elementary logic?

THE PRICE OF GOLD reversed an early 0.8% dip to trade above $1387 per ounce on Thursday in London, as the Dollar slipped following a surprise jump in new US jobless claims.

Crude oil ticked lower from Wedneday's new two-year high, but silver prices also rallied after giving back half of this week's 4.1% gain vs. the Dollar, turning higher from $29.16 per ounce.
