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.

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Fraud We Trust - Amazing, isn't it, how times have changed? Just [Wed.] this morning, President elect Barack Obama stood before microphones and television cameras and told the world that his administration was set to inherit an annual deficit of 1.2 TRILLION dollars. He went on to add that the fiscal 2009 amount did not even include “his” stimulus plan, rumored to be as much as an additional TRILLION dollars, reportedly geared toward infrastructure spending, would be required to “jump start” the U.S. economy.

Gordon Brown's 415 tonnes Gold Sale Blunder, 10 Years On / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Adrian_Ash


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHIS COMING MAY will mark 10 years since Gordon Brown chose to sell well over half the UK's national gold reserves – some 415 tonnes all told – at what would prove rock-bottom prices.

The Global Gold Bull Market in Major Currencies / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDuring late 2008's unprecedented financial-market panic, gold got something of a bum rap. Since this metal didn't soar during the stock chaos like most of its investors expected, many assume something must be wrong in gold-land. But gold ultimately did hold its own, up 2.1% in Q4 while the S&P 500 plunged 22.4%.

During the very heart of the stock panic when gold looked the weakest (under $750), it was being driven down by a bear-record US dollar surge. A mass exodus of flight capital fleeing the burning stock markets roared into US Treasuries for a temporary safe haven. Foreign investors joining this deluge had to buy dollars first, forcing a mighty dollar rally to erupt that traders interpreted as a sign to sell gold futures.

By: Gary_Dorsch

Gold Short-term Overbought, Against Strong Longterm Bullish Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Era of Simple Solutions continues to unfold. For every complex problem, as the wise man once said, there is a simple solution, that is wrong. Into the abyss of collapsing financial institutions rode the Federal Reserve, with a check book in each hand. The crowd went wild over this simple solution. And in response to the fundamental failure of U.S. auto companies, welfare checks were mailed to them. But yet, that is not enough. As a remedy for the economic ills brought on by the housing debt bubble, the Obama government will borrow about $2.5 trillion dollars in the coming year. One of those trillion dollars will be frittered away on Congressional pork and mailing checks to voters.

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has fallen again today and is down some 1% but continues to consolidate between $830/oz and $890/oz.
