Crude Oil 2009 Golden Opportunity for Investors / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Oil prices have fallen 70% since hitting a record $147.27 a barrel in July, which means in just five months, crude has given up all the price gains it made in the past four years.

After such a wrenching plunge, many analysts believe the outlook for the “black gold” remains bleak – and in the short term it certainly is. In the long run, however, dwindling supplies, resurgent demand, and a lack of investment will cause crude oil to double, triple, or even quintuple in price over the next few years.

Stock Market Chaos on the Horizon? Invest in Real Assets / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBuckle your seat belts. Bob Moriarty, 321gold.com founder, pulls no punches in his latest exclusive interview with The Gold Report. He sees a short-term rally in the stock market but paints a very sobering longer-term picture with "guaranteed hyperinflation." He believes precious metals and other “things” are the only safety nets.

Gold Review 2008 and Outlook Forecast 2009 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat happened to gold in 2008? In 2008, the gold market began the year with a normal bull market pullback from its highs of $1,035 to the very low $900 level. Jewelry had already begun to recover as the gold price dropped, but then the impact of the "investor meltdown", through forced selling by investors, selling what they could to cover losses in other markets, hit gold too. To make matters worse, in the U.S.A. so many investors had paid, from only a 10% deposit up to a 50% deposit, on the shares they owned.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Whitehall writes: Most people have heard the phrase, “it takes a big man to admit when he's wrong”.

Well, I'm about 5'9”, and I don't believe that people should be exalted when they do something that they're supposed to do. It doesn't make you a big man, it makes you honest. You're supposed to be honest.

Gold Secular Bull Market Investing Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold belongs in every investor's portfolio. It is totally unique among financial assets, a physical metal commanding timeless and universal intrinsic value. It is a rock of stability in a chaotic world, a stark contrast to the complex web of mere promises to pay that is our modern faith-based financial system. Without gold, true diversification and protection from systemic risk is impossible.

Gold's fundamentals are dazzlingly bullish. Like everything else on the planet that is freely bought and sold, gold's price today and in the future is a direct function of its supply and demand. As long as its global demand exceeds its global supply on balance, gold's price will continue powering higher in its secular bull. While it has already come far from its humble beginnings in the $250s in April 2001, it has a long way to run yet.

Insolvent Financial System Signals Much Higher Gold Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany people are very confused these days. They should be. Slowly the nation is coming to grips with a harsh reality that a garden variety recession has not dug its roots inside the body economic of the United States. This is much worse. This is an economic and financial system horribly plagued by insolvency, with vicious cycles causing severe momentum in the damage, where the entire system is facing potential ruin in a disintegration sequence during a virtually unstoppable liquidation process.

Uranium Investing- Analysts Forgot Yellow Cake / Commodities / Uranium

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNicholas Jones writes: The financial analytical business is one of comic and irony. During prospering economic times, the aggregate success of financial analysts' ability to make their clients money is very high on a percentage basis.

When the economic worm turns, the field of financial analysis turns into this sort of absurd puppet show. It's really a simple notion. It's just easier to make money in bull markets.

Jay Taylor: Time to Start Hoarding Gold Mining Stocks? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world's economic woes may be far from over, but deflation or inflation, gold is as good as it gets, according to Jay Taylor. Jay, whose passion for the king of metals prompted him to pursue geological studies after earning his MBA in finance and investments, has established an enviable track record in the markets. According to webeatthestreet.com, “J. Taylor's Gold & Technology Stocks Model Portfolio has more than tripled its value since January 2000 while the S&P 500 has barely moved.”

Will Lower Gold Impede Crude Oil's Turnaround? / Commodities / Crude Oil

And vice-versa: If the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) is headed lower, as we are seeing (today), would not that take the USO down also?

Silver Price Forecast 2009 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough silver's gains on the recent dollar plunge were relatively modest they were nevertheless technically very significant as they have resulted in it staging a clear breakout from the severe downtrend in force from July, and have thus set the stage for much greater gains in the future. Before going further it should be stated that much of what has been written and highlighted in the Gold Market update applies equally well to silver, and silver investors should therefore refer to the latest Gold Market update for this infortmation.

IEA Study: Global Energy Supplies Remain a Concern / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe International Energy Agency (IEA) published a study last month that repeated their warning that  excessively low energy prices will discourage investment in exploration and production in light of the steadily rising costs of extracting and processing oil from increasingly difficult places. The lack of sufficient investment has serious implications for future energy supplies once the global economy recovers from its current descent according to the IEA.

Crude Oil Price Deflation Most Oversold Since the Great Depression / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost financial commentators, even the well-known and respected ones, just don't get it. They don't understand what's happening in macro-conditions because they fail to accept the understanding that sentiment, as measured by speculator betting practices in the various options markets populating the landscape, is the single most important driver of prices in our mature fiat currency based financial markets. What this means is no matter how much money and bailouts our bureaucracy sponsors, until the collect mind changes, as measured by rising open interest put / call ratios on the major US indexes, meaning the speculators are becoming more pessimistic, in general, prices will keep falling. Of course this can change, and corrections (higher at present) will occur, however if you are waiting for unbridled monetary and fiscal largesse to result in hyperinflation with declining numbers of bearish equity market speculators to squeeze, you are likely in for a disappointment.

Gold Backwardation Forward Thinking / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an earlier article Backward Thinking on Backwardation I explained that backwardation in gold is the flipside of the phenomenon of a drastic contraction of world trade and employment. This brings out the danger in denying the fact of gold backwardation or to belittle its significance, as most observers seem to be doing. I am reminded of the saying of the Swiss educator F.W. Foerster: "if you don't use your eyes for seeing, later you will use them for weeping." In this article I want to enumerate the reasons why I believe that permanent backwardation in gold would bring about the descent of our civilization into lawlessness similar to that following the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.
