Global Steel Industry On The Rebound / Commodities / Steel Sector

By: Anthony_David

The fortunes of the global steel industry are on the rebound and prices are once again firming up. Analysts expect Indian steel prices to rise by about 5% from early September as the post-monsoon demand from the automobile and steel sectors heat up. The rise in raw material and freight rates generally drive steel prices upwards but the recently imposed ban on iron ore exports by the state of Karnataka is adding supply constraints to the equation as well.

China’s Stranglehold on World’s Rare Earth Supply / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

All 17 of the rare earth elements are metals. Cerium, dysprosium, erbium, europium, gadolinium, holmium, lanthanum, lutetium, neodymium, praseodymium, promethium, samarium, scandium, terbium, thulium, ytterbium and yttrium – unfamiliar names, yet rare earths are used in most modern and almost all ‘green’ applications. A few everyday examples are cell phones, computer monitors, DVD players, flat panel televisions, e-readers, iPods, rechargeable batteries for hybrid and electric cars, catalysts in cars and oil refineries, advanced ceramics, super-conductors, fiber optics, lasers, CFL light bulbs, wind turbines, and military systems.

Silver About To Break Out Big! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: David_Banister

(Excerpted from August 31st forecast to our Paying subscribers, who were alerted at $18.73 per ounce, now $19.50)
Silver is one asset class I do not cover very often, but have been largely bullish on since $6 an ounce many years ago.  It can be considered “poor man’s Gold” as they say.  I believe Silver is about to stage a pretty large advance based loosely on the Elliott Wave pattern I see unfolding after a 9 odd month consolidation. (Obviously, there are also fundamental fiat currency/debt events worldwide that give it the underlying bull chart pattern).

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Chief Energy Strategist, Casey’s Energy Opportunities writes: The International Energy Association (IEA) has spoken. What the world needs now is a clean energy technology revolution.

June saw the 2010 launch of IEA’s biannual report, Energy Technology Perspectives. Speaking at the launch was Nobuo Tanaka, executive director for IEA. The Gulf oil spill, he said, could prove to be a tipping point in the world’s energy consumption habits. He added that the disaster serves as a tragic reminder that our current path is not sustainable.

Gold Imminent Breakout and Investment In Failure / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany observers to the wild gyrations, deep contortions, extreme measures, and other bizarre activity in the government and banking arenas are suffering from severe confusion. The public is alarmed, even frightened, by the sequence of events, without much benefit of comprehension of what is happening or which clans are in control. The degree of deception hit a peak during the TARP Fund creation and disbursement, done behind private closed doors for the replenishment of sacred preferred stock, that bridge between corporate bonds and stock equity. The deception hit a very high pitch with the financial titan failures, the entire string of them. It has never stopped since.

Gold Thrusts Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Not sure what specifically triggered the pre-market thrust in gold and in the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD), but there are probably 10 fundamental reasons we can come up with, aside from the resumption of the "flight-to-safety" excuse.

Right now, every time I think about the reason for a powerful new upleg in gold prices, my mind gravitates to the following thought -- that questions about the efficacy of the most powerful governmental institutions on the planet (the Fed and the BOJ) might slowly but surely be eating away at investor confidence that current eco-financial problems can be appropriately dealt with, and remedied.

Addendum to the 'Flations - Gold $5,000 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFederal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke delivered a much-anticipated speech on Friday, August 27, 2010. There was no reason to think this talk would be more or less important than his other talks except for the degree of hysteria whipped up by the media in advance. Bernanke was addressing an audience of fellow central bankers and their camp followers at an annual gathering in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. There have been memorable comments at these late summer getaways, such as, in 2005, when past-Federal Reserve Board Vice Chairman Alan Blinder claimed then-current-Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan might be the "greatest central banker who ever lived."

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this author’s opinion, China, and to a lesser extent India and other developing nations, are responsible for the largest and longest base metals bull market the world has ever experienced. Many fear the bull market for natural resources is over when in fact nothing could be further from the truth. This seems especially true, because of the supply/demand picture, regarding copper.

Gold Forecast to Hit $1500 During 2011 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Concerns that the US economy is sliding back into recession has led to equities internationally coming under pressure and further flows into safe-haven assets. Gold and silver have consolidated from last week's gains and remain near closing levels from yesterday and last week. The yen - a preferred carry trade at times of financial stress - rose back to a 15-year high against the dollar as doubts remain about Japan's attempt to weaken the currency. Interestingly, despite the yen's recent strength, gold remains near multiyear record highs in the Japanese currency (see chart).
