Defining “Intrinsic Value” in Gold and Silver Investing / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mainstream financial media touts a variety of 'anti-inflation' investments that can be used to protect wealth against the ravages of inflation. These typically range from buying commodities like oil and coal to more sophisticated instruments like inflation-protected treasuries and annuities.

While such investments may appear to be inflation-proof on paper, none of these investment vehicles have the solid intrinsic value of gold, silver or any of the other precious metals.

China Gold and Silver Strategy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chinese currency the Yuan is still pegged to the U.S. Dollar at a level that undervalues it substantially, provoking criticism of this exchange rate policy. The world still believes that China cannot survive and prosper without the West to fund its development, and so most analysts are focused on a hard landing for China.

Nevertheless, what is really happening is that new currency swaps are forming the backdrop of Chinese metals accumulation and production. In essence, China is gradually amassing the lion’s share of global wealth in the form of hard assets.

The Calm Before the Storm, Gold Bullion Will Benefit / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLate last week when reading the World Gold Council’s Gold Investment Statistic’s commentary, we were reminded of when Doug Casey said ‘“inevitable” is not the same thing as “imminent.”’

As we keep mentioning on these pages the financial situation, which has been snowballing for over 40 years, will continue to do so and in the process those who decided to invest in gold bullion will benefit.

Timid Silver Bugs Could Miss the Next Big Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSilver investors and speculators are amongst the manic-depressive you can possibly find in the investment world. When they are playing maximum credits on the slots and passing round boxes of cuban cigars and taking out massive loans to buy Ferraris and Lambos you know it's time to watch out. When they retreat into the shadows, only coming out to hurl themselves off bridges and other tall structures, mumbling about the "cartel" as they plummet earthwards, you know it's getting time to buy - and that is the situation we now find ourselves in. In this update we are going to examine evidence which suggests that, despite the fragile looking price pattern, silver is going to turn surprisingly strong in short order, or alternatively, if it does break down, it turns out to be a false move that is swiftly followed by a dramatic recovery.

Gold Shaping Up for a Major Uptrend / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

SILVER: A Metal of Sunken Treasure and Champions / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Earlier this week, Odyssey Marine Exploration, a world leader in deep-ocean shipwreck exploration, announced it successfully recovered approximately 48 tons of silver bullion from the SS Gairsoppa. The British ship was torpedoed by a German U-boat and sank in three miles of water off the coast of Ireland during World War II. Despite the silver being submerged for 71 years, it is still a highly prized discovery as the precious metal has appreciated in value.

Crude Oil Prices Heading For A Fall / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe week ending 20 July had vintage scenes from the 2008 epoch, as oil boomers bid up prices with such gusto they were able to grab 3%-a-day rises, midweek, but by weekend the cold chill of reality was trmming their sails. Although this was a vintage spectacle for a global oil market where the biggest brokers, bankers and traders both need and want higher oil prices, oil prices are set on greasy skids, oiled by a slew of so-called fundamentals. These include stubbornly slowing world demand, growing stocks, OPEC overproduction, increasing NOPEC output, large new finds of shale oil and stranded "greasy gas" able to yield NGL output, and oil's declining share in the global energy mix.

Gold Daily and Silver Coiling for an Imminent Move / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jesse

"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by the deluge of bank paper, as we were formerly by the old Continental paper.

It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who, instead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of no useful industry of theirs."

By: Jeff_Clark

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope owns a sizable chunk of the world's natural resources.

Over the past few decades, however, EU countries have mostly imported their resources.

How to Minimize Risk and Increase Returns on Junior Gold Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJoe Mazumdar, senior mining analyst at Vancouver's Haywood Securities, adheres to certain fundamental metrics when reviewing the pedigree of a junior firm. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Mazumdar explains why some juniors are positioned to do better than some majors in the current geopolitical climate and he counsels pragmatism: the key to unlocking golden opportunities is locating firms with experienced management and adequate cash flow that can qualify for mixed-source financing in the international context of uneven gold prices. He shares a few picks in that space.

Gold Reality Therapy for Abused Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Renewed economic contraction has started to show up in the reporting of major economic series. Headline June retail sales declined by 0.5% versus May, in the context of earlier monthly contractions…

“The general outlook remains unchanged …. Official reporting shows a plunge in economic activity from fourth-quarter 2007 to second-quarter 2009, with an ensuing upturn in activity that led to a full recovery as of third-quarter 2011. In contrast, I contend the economy began turning down in 2006, plunging in 2008 into 2009 and subsequently stagnating—bottom-bouncing—at a low level of activity ever since. There has been no recovery, and the economic downturn is intensifying anew.

Silver Price Undervalued / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter being sucked into the general commodities correction, silver has been relentlessly drifting lower since late February.  But this weakness has forced the white metal down to a very bullish place technically.  Silver is now quite undervalued compared to prevailing gold prices, its primary driver.  Thus it has great potential to rally mightily in the coming months to regain much lost ground relative to gold.

Is Your Gold Bullion Safe? False Sense of Security for ETF Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Nick_Barisheff

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWorldwide economic uncertainty has created a growing interest in precious metals as a way to preserve wealth. Today, global risks for investors include currency devaluation, sovereign debt defaults, bond market collapses and stock market losses, all underpinned by ever-increasing government debt.

For protection from impending economic Armageddon, investors are turning in increasing numbers to the traditional safe haven of precious metals. Unfortunately, many today don't know how to purchase or store bullion, and consequently may find themselves as vulnerable to financial collapse as those who didn't purchase any bullion at all.
