Gold Lifted Followng Bradford & Bingley Banking Sector Shockwaves / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold  closed at $893.50  in New York yesterday and was up $6.50 and silver  closed at $16.87  and was up 4 cents .

Gold's rise yesterday came despite little or no movement in the dollar and oil price and seems to have been primarily safe haven buying on continuing concerns about the credit crisis.

Higher Oil Bullish for Clean Energy? Not Necessarily! / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Mike_Paulenoff


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne would think that if crude oil were about to spike to $150/bbl or higher, that the "clean energy" portfolio, otherwise known as solar stocks, would be a bit more buoyant, right?

However, let's notice that just the opposite situation has developed: the PowerShares Clean Energy Portfolio (AMEX: PBW) looks vulnerable to a nose-dive towards the 20.00 support area (another 10% on the downside from current levels)!

Gold Correction Confirmation / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Joe_Nicholson

“The primary expectation [is]… a three-wave correction off the recent lows, culminating in a 5-wave move up that will reverse and produce new lows. One more new high to complete c of b is likely. A move back below the 50-day sma would tend to contraindicate the impulsive count, but overlap of wave 1 at $890 is needed to invalidate the impulse… while physical buyers who've chased the rapidly rising price are literally left holding the bag.” ~ Precious Points: B Unbiased, May 25, 2008

Energy and Natural Resources Bull Market Investing / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The world is now several years into the commodities secular bull market that is expected to span many decades. Undoubtedly the market trends will contain many mini-bear markets within the overall bull market as prices are bid higher by speculators chasing limited supply as we have witnessed with rice these past few weeks and are likely to witness with crude oil later this year.

The Great Oil Price Swindle- Market Manipulation or Fraud? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Commodity Futures and Trading Commission (CFTC) is investigating trading in oil futures to determine whether the surge in prices to record levels is the result of manipulation or fraud. They might want to take a look at wheat, rice and corn futures while they're at it. The whole thing is a hoax cooked up by the investment banks and hedge funds who are trying to dig their way out of the trillion dollar mortgage-backed securities (MBS) mess that they created by turning garbage loans into securities. That scam blew up in their face last August and left them scrounging for handouts from the Federal Reserve. Now the billions of dollars they're getting from the Fed is being diverted into commodities which is destabilizing the world economy; driving gas prices to the moon and triggering food riots across the planet.

Silver Stocks Long-term Fundamentals Remains Excellent / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you've been following the financial markets in recent months you'll likely have noticed that precious metals are still deep-out-of-favor contrarian plays. The stock-market cheerleaders presenting the financial news jeer the PMs and still attribute their record-high “bubble” levels to nothing but inflation and anti-dollar hedges. Rarely are PM fundamentals considered.

With this universally rotten PM sentiment it is apparent that the metals and their related stocks are still far from being mainstream favorites. This is just fine though as it tells us there is still a long way to go in their secular bull markets.

Don't be Afraid, Buy Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Peter_Schiff

As the price of gold has taken some lumps since it crashed into the symbolically significant $1,000 per ounce mark back in March, those on Wall Street who had consistently underplayed its potential on its way up are now assuring its continued retreat. According to these gold market spectators, prices have risen solely as a result of financial panic, and now that the fear has apparently subsided, gold's gains will evaporate as well.

Inflation Leaves Investors Little Choice But to Invest in Commodities / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe peaceful co-existence between commodity-related investments and most sectors which comprise the broader US Stock indices, is drawing to a close. As inflation tightens its grip over the world economy, US treasuries and stocks (consumer-related, tech, and financials) will suffer while investments in tangible assets will see their gains accelerate higher. I consider the terms "inflation" and "currency debasement" to be largely synonymous. The bottom line is that purchasing power is going to drastically decline. Income and wealth is not going to keep up with rising prices for goods and services for the US consumer. Hard asset investments will emerge as the sole safe haven against the deleterious effects of inflation.

Gold Bugs Switching to Black Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Black_Swan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI’m beginning to wonder if some of the gold bugs are starting to switch to the dark side (crude oil). Why? Well, gold and crude oil have been very closely correlated on many occasions – mostly due to the long-term dollar bear market. Except right now, amidst surging oil prices (seems like a new record everyday), gold prices are just muddling around with a downward tilt. You know the gold bugs can’t be happy watching things play out this way.

Commodities Boom- You ain't seen Nothing Yet! / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNearly every natural resource under the sun is about to enter the second, most powerful phase of their bull markets, eventually reaching dizzying heights that make today's record prices seem tame by comparison.

Almost everyone would scoff if I gave you my peak projections for copper, uranium, corn, wheat, and each of the other commodities I follow. They'd probably lock me up in Bellevue!

Crude Oil Bubble About to Burst? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“A trend in motion, will stay in motion, until some outside force, knocks it off its course!” After watching the parabolic rise in crude oil prices, doubling from a year ago, to above $130 a barrel last week, central bankers who under-estimated the power and resiliency of the “crude oil vigilantes”, are now praying for a “Bubble” that is destined to burst under its own weight, and at a moment's notice.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, one of the world's biggest hedge fund traders, Mr George Soros said although the weak US dollar, depleting supplies from aging oil fields, government fuel subsidies, and record Chinese and Indian demand could explain the parabolic surge in energy prices, the crude oil market is also significantly inflated by speculation. “Speculation is increasingly affecting the price, which has a parabolic shape, which is characteristic of bubbles,” he said.

The Oil Price- We are Living in the Last Days of Cheap Resources / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: David_Vaughn

It looks like we may be paying 5 dollars a gallon for gasoline before the end of the summer.

There seems to be a great deal of speculation as to why the oil price is rising. Are the oil companies simply gouging American citizens? Perhaps OPEC is doing the gouging. Or maybe it would help things if the United States allowed for refineries to be built and oil to be drilled here in our own country.

Gold Slumps on Strong Dollar / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES gave back an overnight rally early in London on Thursday, flirting with a two-week low beneath $890 per ounce as crude oil fell 0.6%, the US Dollar rose, and world stock markets continued to gain.

"There is not much speculative participation" in the Gold Market right now, according to one London fund manager.
