Three Ways a Greek Debt Settlement Will Affect the Energy Sector / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Dr. Kent Moors writes: There are now rising indications that the Greek government and its creditors are going to avert a full-blown financial meltdown…

And this means there are some positive developments coming for the energy sector.

As I have been noting over the past couple of weeks, whatever emerges at the 11th hour will be at best merely another thumb in the dike. Completing the metaphor: Nobody has any actual plans to repair the leaking levee.

The Forgotten History (and Potential Future) of Silver as Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: MoneyMetals

Stefan Gleason writes: In contemporary discussions of sound money, silver tends to get short shrift. Even among staunch sound money advocates, the historic role of silver as money is often marginalized or ignored altogether.

People who equate sound money with gold and tout the advantages of returning to a gold standard should also embrace silver as a complementary – and necessary – partner with gold in re-establishing sound money.

First Strike Capability - Gold or War / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

We’ll circle back to the first strike later.  Let’s frame the problem:

“Why are governments suddenly so keen to ban physical cash? The answer appears to be that the banks and government authorities are anticipating bail-ins, steeply negative interest rates and hefty fees on cash, and they want to close any opening regular depositors might have to escape these forms of officially sanctioned theft.  The escape from bail-ins and fees on cash deposits is physical cash, and hence the sudden flurry of calls to eliminate cash as a relic of a bygone age—that is, an age when commoners had some way to safeguard their money from bail-ins and bankers’ control.”

When Net Worth Becomes Net Survival / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In a world of full of concessions, and a financial system rife with complexity, it is often too easy to lose sight of basic economic principles. This is especially true when it stops becoming a show that you watch and begins to be a reality you experience. 

We’ve all been astounded at one point or another when confronted by the layer upon layer of law and complexity around income tax. Your taxes have nothing to do with the government's need for money.

An Inconvenient Truth: The HUI:GOLD Ratio / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

There are no words to describe the Carnage that Precious Metals Stocks have suffered for the 12 years. There is no consoling those who have invested in this sector, many who have literally lost their life's savings as they watch this horror unfold in utter disbelief.

The best way to gauge this complete evisceration of Precious Metals Investors is to follow the HUI:GOLD Ratio.

GOLD: Will Summer 2015 Rally Mark A Cyclical Turning Point? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: GoldSilverWorlds

It was another volatile week in the markets. The interest rate decision by the U.S. Fed on Wednesday was a non-event with no change in the Fed’s monetary policy. The market reacted with a spike in stocks, bonds, and precious metals, while the U.S. dollar took a dive. Also, the unfolding drama in Greece spooked markets and metals; stock markets are nervous while metals mostly get bids each time the Greek crisis flares up.

We focus on gold’s seasonality in this column and what it could mean for gold’s secular trend.

How Much Energy Does The Super Bowl Use? / Commodities / Electricity

By: OilPrice_Com

In the pantheon of American culture, no event is more iconic and distinctly American than the Super Bowl. Like all things American, the Super Bowl is huge, expensive, and a source of incredible passion for fans. Just running a 30-second commercial to the more than 100 million people that watch the game costs nearly $5 million.

So how much electricity and energy go into putting on the Super Bowl?

  • One: The oil cartel will maintain production at 30 million barrels per day (bpd), with unofficial numbers above that.
  • Two: Saudi Arabia’s price war against U.S. shale producers will continue.

Gold And Silver – Elite’s Puppet Obama – Western World’s Worst Enemy For Freedom / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

Obama is fast-tracking the Western world’s freedom out of existence. If ever anyone questioned who this person works for, and it would be the elite’s world bankers, here is solid proof of where Obama’s loyalties lie, and when one thinks of the word “lie,” his name immediately comes to mind.

The first question to ask is cui bono? [to whose benefit?]. Listening to Obama, “There will be 100,000 jobs created by the TPP [Trans Pacific Partnership, which just happens to exclude two of the world’s largest economies, China and Russia]. Bear in mind, Obama is not just focused on TPP. Also on his agenda to serve the elite’s interests – for sure not yours, as you will soon learn – are TTIP [Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership], and TISA [Trade in Services Agreement], the latter two are proposed treaties between the US and the EU, both de facto corporate governments in the service solely for the elite’s NWO agenda [New World Order].

Gold and Silver All Eyes on The Half-Year / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Window-dressing or the management of prices for a favourable mark-to-market valuation at year-ends, half-years and quarters has long been a distorting feature in financial markets. And, with bank capital adequacy ratios at stake, not to mention traders' bonuses, it has been an increasing feature. With the onset of June 30th it seems reasonable to expect this factor to be a reason why gold and silver prices have generally failed to reflect escalating systemic risk in the face of Greece's insolvency and a developing bear market in bonds. Indeed, losses from bonds are bound to encourage window-dressing of banks' short positions as an off-set, and they are generally short of gold and silver futures contracts.

Of Silver Shortages and New Cartels / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Question from a fellow silver highwayman.  

“I don’t understand why the major silver producers don’t set their own prices - why let the brokers set the prices. If the producers stop selling forward contracts, this nonsense all stops.”

In other words, set up a cooperative that guarantees a price floor with the agreement that miners never sell production for less. The price is reset instantly. In essence, that’s what the speculators are doing in reverse with paper.

Gold Price Ratio Signals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Gary_Tanashian

A brief snapshot of counter-cyclical gold’s macro signals vs. other metals (and broad commodities) that are more positively correlated to economies, using weekly charts…

Each week NFTRH updates many charts of nominal US and global stock markets, commodities, precious metals and currencies over multiple time frames.  But we also cover economic data and indicators, with the first macro chart below (Palladium vs. Gold) still barely holding its economic ‘UP’ signal from January, 2013.  At that time a coming economic up phase did not seem likely, but PALL-Gold and fundamental information gleaned from a personal source in the Semiconductor Equipment sector gave us a good risk vs. reward on that stance.

Gold and Silver Price Forecast for the Second Half of 2015 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

MoneyMorning.com Peter Krauth writes: Investors considering gold or silver as an investment or hedge need a good handle on the factors driving their prices.

That's where supply, demand, trend, and sentiment data come in.

With global economic and market factors painting no clear picture about the near-term prospects for many investments, many of you might be considering whether it makes sense to add gold or silver to your portfolios.

The Dark Side Of The Shale Oil Bust / Commodities / Shale Oil and Gas

The fallout of the collapse in oil prices has a lot of side effects apart from the decline of rig counts and oil flows.

Oil production in North Dakota has exploded over the last five years, from negligible levels before 2010 to well over a million barrels per day, making North Dakota the second largest oil producing state in the country.

Gold Versus The Status Quo / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

Gold has been a store of value for 1000s of years.  You can’t purchase gasoline with gold but it has no counter-party risk and is valued world-wide.

In contrast, paper and digital dollars, euros, pounds and yen are debt based fiat currencies backed only by the faith and credit of the governments and central banks which issued them.  Devaluation and higher consumer prices are all but guaranteed.

Gold: Surviving The Last Few Months Of The Bear Market Part III / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Toby_Connor

So I’m starting to see lots of chatter about traders preparing to back up the truck when gold reaches $1000. First off, if you believe like I do, that this was a mostly manufactured bear market by the bullion banks in order to stretch price as low as possible before the next phase of the bull market begins, then there’s no way it’s going to be that easy.
