Preserve Your Wealth Buy Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Turn up the gloom! Investors will do well merely to preserve wealth from here..."

IT'S HARD TO BE BULLISH on gold when there's so much bad news in the world.

After all, Gold offers a refuge against bad times ahead. Like all good insurance, it's best bought before trouble arrives – not during or after.

Soft Commodities Bull Market: Grains / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe great commodities bull of the 21st century has elevated individual commodities and sectors of commodities in various phases over the last eight or so years. Those commodities that are finite (hard commodities) took the lead, with energy and metals breaking out to historic highs.

Growing global demand led by Asia 's industrialization has pinched the supplies of these scarce resources. And this has caused an economic imbalance that has birthed massive secular bull markets across the entire energy and metals complexes.

Fuel Subsidies In Mexico Stimulate Black Market Activity In The US / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Along the frontier between Southern California and Baja California it has always been a tradition for consumers to engage in a bit of arbitrage due to the temporary differences in prices for basic goods. Normally, this has been confined to non-durables and foodstuffs. But, beyond Mexican “cerveza” and other spirits, the changing price of oil has jump-started black market activity north of the border.

Gold has Largest One Day Gaim Since 1985 on Global Inflation Shock / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold surged to $912.30 in New York  yesterday and was up $32.70 and silver closed at $17.12, up 64 cents.

Gold surged in what was the largest one day move since 1985 as the dollar weakened, oil prices surged to new record highs and stock markets fell sharply. While gold was up some 3%, most U.S. stock indices were down some 3% and this continued in Asia and early European trading with gold rising to over $920. Although European indices have recovered somewhat as the morning has progressed, gold has continued to remain firm and safe haven demand has reemerged on decreasing risk appetite.

Peak Oil Truths and Consequences / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: I hear that along with Peak Oil, the world is now hitting Peak Fertilizer. Well, there's enough BS being spread about the oil crisis that it could solve our fertilizer problem in a jiffy.

Much of it is — no surprise — coming from Washington. Another load of bull is coming from our so-called "friends" in the Middle East. Even corporate America, where you might expect common sense to hold some sway, is busy shoveling misinformation. As a result, many investors are left neck-deep, choking, and grasping for a lifeline.

Crude Oil Retesting All-Time Highs / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The June triangle consolidation period in the U.S. Oil Fund ETF (AMEX: USO) likely ended yesterday, and has turned up with a vengeance and has propelled the USO towards a retest of the June (all-time) high at 113.00. The pattern itself represents a high-level bullish consolidation pattern that should resolve itself in a thrust into new high territory that projects into the 115.50 to 117.20 target zone. Only a decline that breaks yesterday's low at 106.83 will wreck the still bullish pattern.

Gold Jumps on Central Banks Failure to Act Against Inflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD jumped ahead of the Wall Street opening on Thursday after the Federal Reserve left US interest rates some 2.0% below the rate of inflation.

Breaking $908 per ounce, Gold rose above last week's closing level as crude oil bounced and the US Dollar fell hard on the currency markets.

Agricultural Commodity ETF Tests Resistance / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Not much of anything going on in the equity or bond markets since the FOMC announcement, however, in general, the equity market appears bid, while the bond market appears offered for the time being. Perhaps the most important reaction to the FOMC statement has been the climb in euro/$ from 1.5540 to 1.5640, which has popped the grains (wheat, corn, beans)... which in turn has popped the DBA (DB Agricultural Commodity, ETF) to test near term resistance at 41.00. If hurdled, let's expect the DBA to surge to retest the June high at 41.42. See our chart.

Gold Lower Ahead of US Fed Interest Rate Indecision on Dollar and Inflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

THE SPOT PRICE OF GOLD ticked lower in London on Wednesday, dropping $4 per ounce from last night's close as currency, bond and stock market traders awaited today's decision and statement on US interest rates from the Federal Reserve.

"The Dollar managed to stabilize [overnight] in after-market trading," notes Manqoba Madinane at Standard Bank in Johannesburg , "possibly indicating that investors anticipate hawkish comments from the Fed on inflation today."

Agri-Food Bull Markets Driven by Fundamentals / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe term “bubble” is thrown around a lot. It is especially used by analysts that do not understand why the price of something is rising. If an analyst failed to forecast the rising price, it must be a bubble. Maybe yes, maybe no. Bubbles have three characteristics. Importantly, bubbles are built on (1)a widely accepted consensus forecast of (2)rising price (3)financed by debt. Such would aptly describe the global housing bubble which has burst. It would also be an apt description of developments in the paper oil market. Only in part does it explain the price developments in Agri-Food.

Gold's Corrective Upleg is Complete / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the weakness in the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) has not inflicted much if any meaningful technical damage to the overall pattern off of the 5/1 low of 83.57, today's big gap down certainly argues that the current upleg off of the 6/12 low at 84.83 into Friday's high at 89.61 is complete! In addition, my expectation of an approaching significant low closer to the timeframe of the bottoming of the 15-18 week cycle low between July 7 and 14 suggests that today's weakness is the start of the road towards such a low, which figures to be VERY important indeed. Let's expect the GLD to press towards a test of the rising 200 DMA in the 85-84 target zone in the upcoming hours/days -- and possibly decline into the 82.90/50 area prior to a powerful upside reversal.

China Raises Fuel Prices: Is this the End of the Oil boom? / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast Thursday, China roiled the oil market, announcing it would raise gas and diesel prices by about 46 cents per gallon in order to reduce demand. In a matter of minutes, oil prices skidded lower.

Before you knew it, America's TV news and finance channels were all over the story. They asked the burning question, "Will higher prices and lower demand in China kill this great bull market in oil?" And they presented a seemingly endless parade of oil bears and stock bulls who almost unanimously proclaimed that oil prices were about to crater.

The world's biggest investment banks, meantime, issued a series of notes accusing each other of ever greater write-downs for the April-June quarter.

Another Gold Attack, then North to $2,000! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

Silver Fan and Pennant Corrective Pattern Resolving Towards Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe arguments relating to gold apply in large part to silver, so here we will only detail the important differences and readers are referred to the parallel Gold Market update.

Like gold, silver has been marking out a 3-arc Fan Correction following its March peak, and the chief difference between the two is that silver looks even stronger. On the 1-year chart we can see that silver has marked out a more solid looking base line of support between about $16.20 and $16.50 above its rising 200-day moving average and we can also see that it is closer to breaking out above the 3rd fanline of the fan pattern.
