How to Play the Gold Silver Ratio / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Mike_Stall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold-silver ratio is perhaps one of the first indicators traders looked at to comprehend the state of the precious metals market and accordingly acquire positions. Indeed, it has been out of favor among modern investors who believe that this is one ratio even his barber is tuned in to and a simple sinusoidal movement does not often work. Anything that goes up comes down – while the cliché cannot be disregarded, if an uncomplicated philosophy like that really worked as simply, it would have earned several investors guaranteed profits over time. It is essential to understand that the game in the markets is all about being in the side who are doing things that the majority are not, given that the majority loses. In order to outsmart the majority, we need to look at the gold silver ratio in a way the majority is not.

What's Ahead for Crude Oil? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's no question about it, 2010 has been pretty difficult for most traders in the crude oil market. This year has produced no discernible, lasting trends in this market. The trends it has produced have lasted little more than just 3 or 4 weeks at best.

Commodities Outlook Remains Positive / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith news of a compromise on extending the Bush tax cuts, recent strength in the U.S. dollar, and signals from China it may raise interest rates, it is a good time to check on the health of weak-dollar assets, such as commodities (DBC). Commodities, especially hard commodities like copper (JJC) and gold (GLD), are often used as a way to protect purchasing power during periods where concerns about future inflation are elevated.

Gold and Silver Tumble From Bull Market Highs on Rising Interest Rates / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD continued to fall in Asia and London on Wednesday, dropping 2.8% from Tuesday's new record high of $1430 per ounce as commodity markets also fell and global stock markets stalled.

Crude oil slipped further from yesterday's new two-year highs, but major-economy government bonds also extended their losses, driving 10-year US Treasury yields above 3.20% even as the US Dollar rallied sharply on the forex market.

Gold Breakout in Real Terms Means Good Times are Ahead for Gold Bulls / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

In past commentaries, I've written about my favorite form of technical analysis. That is intermarket analysis. Intermarket analysis takes traditional technical analysis much further. Normally, we'd look at a market by itself. We'd look at its price action, potential patterns and its momentum. Intermarket analysis takes this a step further by comparing the market at hand to various other markets. It gives us an idea of what is really going on and where market leadership is.

Crude Oil Price Ten Year Forecast to 2020 / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Prediction is extremely difficult, especially about the future”: Niels Bohr

Once upon a time everything was predictable. Rating agencies could “almost” guarantee negligible default rates on bonds bearing pretty AAA investment grade stickers. And as the free-world slumbered, Noble Prize-winning economists fiddled with (fiendishly) clever theories like Inflation Targeting and the Black–Scholes-Model, which (theoretically) were going to create immense wealth out of thin air.

The 12 Gold Bugs of Christmas / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWarren Buffett recently remarked that you can't value gold like an oil company or farmland, so we should forget gold and buy equities. But he misses the point! Gold doesn't produce value because it is value; in other words, gold is money.

It's sad to see Mr. Buffett go to the dark side. But, as I'm about to show, he's losing company when it comes to his views on gold.

Gold Stocks HUI Set for Explosive Bull Run During 2011 / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJoseph E. Taglioli writes: We appear to be at the 3rd wave juncture where the large cap producer gold and silver stocks and intermediate precious metals producer/developer stocks tend to start to move much better - and where the smaller explorer class starts to kick up its heels.

Let me show you what I mean with a few charts that will give you a clear visual of why “you ain't seen nothing, yet” when it come to the future performance of the stocks (and warrants) of gold and silver mining and royalty companies.

Greg Weldon: Gold Price Still Has Significant Upside / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Campbell: What are the implications of solving a huge debt problem by taking on more debt?

Greg Weldon: Its more than Ireland or Greece when you think that 25 out of 27 EU nations are in violation of rules on either debts or deficit relative to their GDP. We’ve been saying for a long time that for Europe to to bail out Europe is ridiculous. To think that the US is going to commit a trillion dollars to any foreign bail outs is even more ludicrous. Really the spark in the stock markets around the world was that comment from an unnamed US official that the United States promised to buoy up the International Monetary Fund, with another trillion dollars.

Gold New Record High at $1,428/oz on Sovereign Debt and Currency Crisis Concerns / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has reached new record nominal highs (in most major currencies) and silver a new 30 year nominal high due to a variety of macroeconomic and geopolitical factors. Market focus remains on the Eurozone debt crisis but has shifted somewhat to concerns about ultra loose US monetary policy and the likelihood that this will lead to a devaluation of the dollar, inflation and currency debasement.

Silver's 30-Year High is Just the Beginning / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Money_Morning

Jason Simpkins writes: The price of silver today (Monday) surged above $30 an ounce for the first time since 1980, after U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke indicated that further quantitative easing (QE) could be on the way.

Silver futures have gained almost 70% since August, when expectations of more QE were first discussed. Since then, the Federal Reserve has set about purchasing $600 billion of U.S. Treasuries and the Fed Chairman said on Sunday that more debt purchases are "certainly possible."

Stocks Leading Oil Prices Higher / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe direction of oil prices continues to remain a topic of hot debate by many analysts and economists. The key elements of global consumption rates, inventory levels, OPEC and non-OPEC supply, all play a decisive role in the long term picture of this natural resource. Yet for most investors, the path of oil can be simply found in the stock market.

Gold Inflation as the Debt Ridden Western World Deflates Against the Price of Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Anthony_J_Stills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast night the US Federal Reserve chairman, Ben Bernanke, went on “60 Minutes” and said that he is not printing money and that the first two rounds of quantitative easing does not constitute printing and did not increase the money supply. Mr. Bernanke never went so far as to say exactly what it is or where the four trillion dollars comes from. The Fed doesn’t have four trillion dollars and it never did, no one loaned it the money, it shows assets of almost US $3 trillion on its balance sheet so where did these assets come from? Then he went on to say that yet another round of quantitative easing (QE3) may be necessary. Mr. Bernanke must think he is talking to a nation of brain dead individuals, and maybe he is, because how else do you explain how we got into the mess we’re in now.

J.P. Morgan Getting Squeezed In Silver Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleScott Rubin writes: It is widely known that J.P. Morgan (NYSE: JPM) holds a giant short position in silver. Furthermore, some observers are accusing the bank of acting as an agent for the Federal Reserve in the market - every tick higher in the price of silver undermines confidence in the U.S. Dollar. A lower silver price helps keep the relative appeal of the U.S. dollar and other fiat currencies high.

The Gold Price Key Relationship With Real US Interest Rates / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold investors tend to focus overwhelmingly on the relationship between the US dollar and gold, citing that a lower dollar leads to higher gold prices in US dollars. Whilst this may be generally true, there is another relationship that does not get as much attention as we believe it deserves, and that is the relationship gold has with US real interest rates. For the first few years of this gold bull market, it was sufficient simply to acknowledge the USD down, therefore gold up dynamic, but now things have changed. Over the past couple of years gold has rallied when the greenback has been making gains, as well as when it was weakening, therefore investors must now take note of the inverse relationship between US real interest rates and gold, which has been observed consistently over the last couple of years.
