Energy group, for one, includes oil, natural gas, uranium, etc. Mineral ores, the second group, includes iron, copper, Gold, etc. Third group is Agri-Food, which includes corn, soybeans, pork, etc. That latter group is now again separating itself from the others, and moving on its own path.

Fuel Cell Cars Provide New Uses for Rhodium, Platinum / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Mac_Slavo

The recent price lows of Rhodium ($1200 an ounce) suggest that investors are worried about its future needs in car manufacturing. Rhodium, a noble metal, is primarily used in catalytic converters for combustion engine vehicles.

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recently published story by independent columnist Lynn Cohen-Cole recently, Monsanto Investigator in Illinois Laughs They Are Doing ‘Rural Cleansing'  , reports that Monstanto has begun serving warrants on seed cleaners. Though not a well-known profession outside of farming, seed cleaners basically take left over plant material and seperate out the seeds for use in the next season.

Gold and Silver Physical Bullion Rationing / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is marginally lower today despite sharply weaker oil prices (Light Sweet Crude Oil Future - Combined - FEB09 : -5.14%) and a slightly higher dollar (US DOLLAR INDEX: 83.01 +0.6%).

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOpen The Mint To Gold! - Could a Private Firm Force the Government to Do It?

People ask: "Isn't the Mint already open to gold, producing Gold Eagles and Buffaloes?" Opening the Mint to gold has a technical meaning, namely, opening it to the free and unlimited coinage of gold on private account. The Gold Eagles and Buffaloes are produced on Treasury account in limited quantities and sold at a premium as souvenir coins. It is a ploy to show that gold coins would just not circulate as money. Well, they would if there was no premium and the market was saturated.

Our "Trade Triangle" technology allows us to analyze the market... leaving the fundamentals and our own emotions at the door. Let's look at some of the major markets and see which direction the trend is headed.

Precious Metals Investing: Gold or Platinum / Commodities / Platinum

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Au” and “Pt” may be dull chemical elements, but gold and platinum have certainly played their respective parts during the unfolding of the financial crisis. Revisiting the metals' movements, it is clear from the table below that gold's decline was much smaller than that of platinum - as platinum suffered from the deterioration in the auto industry - but the recovery of gold has also been lesser than that of platinum.
