Battle for Strategic Control of Zimbabwe's Rich Mineral Treasures / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Mugabe, the President of Zimbabwe, presides over one of the world's richest minerals treasures, the Great Dyke region, which cuts a geological swath across the entire land from northeast to southwest. The real background to the pious concerns of the Bush Administration for human rights in Zimbabwe in the past several years is not Mugabe's possible election fraud or his expropriation of white settler farms. It is the fact that Mr. Mugabe has been quietly doing business, a lot of it, with the one country which has virtually unlimited need of strategic raw materials Zimbabwe can provide— China . Mugabe's Zimbabwe is, along with Sudan, on the central stage of the new war over control of strategic minerals of Africa between Washington and Beijing, with Moscow playing a supporting role in the drama. The stakes are huge.

Gold ETF- The Gold ETF Trading Experience / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTaking advantage of the gold market using the GLD ETF to generate consistent profits in any market condition. Gold's price action in the past 5 months has frustrated many traders. Especially those who have difficulty making money during consolidation periods which are in. The past couple months are consistently the weaker months for gold prices year after year. That being said August through year end have been consistently strong for trading gold and gold ETF's.

Silver Trades Between Support and Resistance Awaiting Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter looking set to challenge its highs silver turned abruptly lower and has fallen substantially over the past couple of weeks for the same reasons as gold, namely collateral damage resulting resulting from the rally in the broad stockmarket as crisis fears eased after the Fannie and Freddie bailout and the falling price of oil.

Gold Hit by Crude Oil Sell Off, Technicals Still Bullish / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the broad stockmarket has staged a relief rally from deeply oversold in response to the Fannie and Freddie bailout and oil has tumbled over the past week or two, both as predicted, gold has suffered more collateral damage than expected from these factors resulting in quite heavy losses in the Precious Metals sector. Conspiracy theorists are arguing that gold was deliberately targeted in order to help protect the dollar at a time when it is especially vulnerable due to the European Central Bank raising rates.

Gold Bullion Stabalises Whilst Gold Stocks Heading into Bear Market Territory / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo bad days but the week ended with a little bit of stability. I don't think it will last. However, which direction next is the question.

GOLD : LONG TERM
The long term takes time to change direction, when it decides to change. Despite several weeks of not so good gold trading activity and some time spent below its long term moving average line, gold has not yet reversed its long term bullish rating. While gold was below its moving average line the line slope remained positive. And through it all the long term momentum indicator remained positive, although at times below its trigger line.

China Driving Force for Long-term Commodities Bull Market / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Emanuel_Balarie

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently returned back from China with some pertinent observations about the commodity markets, Jim Rogers, and the economy. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in my commodities newsletter that if anyone had doubts about the long-term direction of the commodity markets, they should simply hop on a plane and fly to China. The logic behind this is quite simple. Since China has been responsible for the majority of the increased commodity demand over the last decade, keeping a pulse on their commodity consumption trends can give you a pretty clear picture of where things are moving in the longer term. Here are some observations on various topics:

Precious Metals Enduring Seasonal Weakness / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the most part, this summer has not been kind to precious-metals investors and speculators. While gold did rally rather sharply from mid-June to mid-July, up 12.6%, it could not challenge its $1005 March high. And soon after this retest failed it plunged $47, 4.8%, in just 2 trading days this week.

And silver hasn't fared much better. As usual it paralleled gold's mid-June to mid-July advance with its own rally, a healthy 16.3% surge. But this really wasn't all that much better than gold's own run, discouraging silver traders looking for outsized gains. And then this week silver mirrored gold's fast selloff with a steep 5.8% plunge of its own.

India 's Falling Gold Demand: A Panic for Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Just like everywhere else, Indian consumers face the problem of too much money chasing prices too high and becoming worth less each day..."

IT'S HARD TO OVER-EGG the importance of Indian jewelry demand in the physical gold market. Between 2000 and 2007, gold jewelry sold in India accounted for one ounce-in-nine sold worldwide. One ounce in every five wound up as an Indian import (its domestic mines produce less than six tonnes per year), ready to be hung off young brides as 24-carat dowries or worked into bracelets and necklaces for the international market.

Increasing Gold Demand from Sovereign Wealth Funds and Central Banks / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold finished trading in New York yesterday at $922.20, down 50 cents and silver was down 16 cents to $17.22. Gold has rallied in Asia and in early European trading.

While oil is up slightly and the dollar is down slightly, gold is likely to be up on bargain hunting and safe haven buying. The 100 day moving average at $916 appears to be good support and the summer low is likely to be around these levels although a brief dip below $900 is possible.

Energy Resources Bull Market Remains Intact / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFlooding last month interrupted rail traffic in the Midwest , disrupting ethanol production and shipments. Shipments of low-sulfur Power River Basin coal needed for many power plants has also been impacted. Coal inventories are already lean at many generating plants. Barge traffic has come to a standstill in many areas on the Mississippi River .

The impact of the floods on the global agricultural and energy markets in our opinion will be much larger than expected. We think the extent of these impacts will become evident quite soon, and will be reflected in the markets.

Gold Ambushed by Powerful Forces of Global De-leveraging / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the second time in the last several weeks, the gold market has been on the receiving end of ambushes. Leading up to their July 3rd announced rate hike, the Euro Central Bank strong hints prompted the last ambush. The gold futures contracts bear this out easily, as the big cartel players sold down the gold price with heavy paper supply simultaneously. They had to do so. When physical is in reduced supply, resort to trusty paper. After stabilizing in the 920 to 925 range, gold promptly rose to exceed 980, only to be ambushed yet again. The ambush consists of an unexplainable sudden $20 decline in midday , cheered by the majority but without any analysis of where the decline originated. The motive for the early July ambush was simple.

Gold Heading for Seasonal Lows Prior to Strong August Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold finished trading in New York yesterday at $922.70, down $25.50 and silver was down 55 cents to $17.38. Gold has rallied in Asia and in early European trading with bargain hunting buying. Traders and investors with more medium to long term horizons realize that the speed and depth of the sell off is overdone. Especially as none of the fundamental macroeconomic or geopolitical issues have disappeared or even abated. Speculators, both long and short ( it is important to remember that most speculative money is on the short side of the oil, gold and silver markets), can have real impacts in the short term and create volatility and exacerbate trends in either direction.

Ominous Top Forming in Gold Mining ETF / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Current weakness in the Market Vectors Gold Mining ETF (AMEX: GDX) is imbuing the larger chart pattern with a very ominous look -- of a major, multi-month top forming. Furthermore, if the price structure presses beneath critical support between 42.50 and 41.50, the massive top formation will trigger significant sell signals that project a target of 37 to 34 thereafter.

Profiting from Alternative Energies That Work / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: Many Americans are disgusted by the fact that, faced with an energy crisis, the government seems to produce nothing but hot air. I think the government is paralyzed because there's no one clear solution.

Instead, there are a multitude of options — more drilling, nuclear power, hydrogen cars, solar power ... you name it. Every alternative has a lobby in Washington to press its case, but there's no one to tell our elected officials which is the best route to take.
