Brent-NYMEX Crude Oil Spread Widening / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

During the month of May so far, Brent crude oil futures have declined from $128.40 to $110.93 (-$17.47), or nearly 14%, while NYMEX Oil has declined from $106.49 to $93.65 (-$12.84), or about 22%. This has resulted in a widening of the Brent-NYMEX differential from $13 to nearly $18.

Judging from both the recent up-leg pattern of the differential and the powerful position of its near-vertical momentum gauge, the Brent (British North Sea oil)-NYMEX (U.S. oil) spread should continue to widen towards a retest of its year-long resistance line, now at $19.95.

Political and Economic Factors Bode Well for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

So far, 10 European political leaders out of 17 have been ousted out of office like a falling dominos in a little more than a year.

The issue that has angered voters other than unemployment is austerity. We know from personal finances that when we overspend, we must cut back, pay our debts and rebuild our savings. That's the prudent thing to do and that's what the austerity school preaches. But what happens if the financial hole is so deep that there is no way to climb out by reasonable cutting back and saving? That's when you declare bankruptcy and your creditors share the pain. The laws of capitalism decree that if you don't assess risk correctly, you lose money. The conclusion is that austerity has to come with a mechanism for default, which is not the case in Europe.

Special Report: How to Buy Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: In late December, silver dipped to a 12-month low near $26 an ounce, and traders who responded to the barrage of "buy" recommendations were quickly rewarded as the metal soared to a high of $37.18 just two months later.

Today, silver has pulled back below $29 an ounce, giving investors another chance to establish a position before the metal makes its next move higher.

A Contrarian's Guide to Volatile Precious Metals Markets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTrotting the globe in his unrelenting quest for investing opportunities, Bob Moriarty had just completed a 21,000-mile travel-a-thon when he picked up the phone for this exclusive interview with The Gold Report. He liked a lot of what he saw, found plenty of bargains along the way and is willing to name names. Ever the contrarian, he is picking up stocks when everyone else is dumping them; he plans to cash in when the mass of sellers morphs into a mass of buyers and drives prices up.

 

The Gold Report: We're hearing many people these days warning that it's not a good time for investing in junior mining stocks. The TSX Venture Exchange has been experiencing some of its lowest volumes in six to nine months. What do you believe investors should do this summer?

The Death of Greece, Impact on Crude Oil Price / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the Eurozone continues to show weakness, events yesterday in Athens may accelerate the situation. The downward movement in oil prices this morning in both London and on the NYMEX testifies to the rising concern.

The aftermath of the Greek elections propelled the new radical left party SYRIZA into the limelight as the second strongest party in the country. Given the adamant refusal by SYRIZA leadership to accept bailout reforms, the party's new brokering position means the crisis will continue.

Climbing U.S. Dollar's Potential Impact on Commodities / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The most salient feature of our comparison chart between the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) and the Reuters/Jefferies CRB Commodities Index (CRB) is the recent climb in the DXY off of its May 1 low at 78.60 towards another test of a 2-year resistance plateau at 81.40/80.

If this plateau is hurdled, the DXY has the potential to trigger a very powerful advance into the 86 area initially and then towards 89-90. Such a powerful advance in the U.S. dollar could crush the commodity complex (CRB), which already is showing signs of stress as it breaks beneath its prior two significant pivot lows in the vicinity of 292-293 and is pointing next to 275-272.

Gold and Silver Major Bottom This Week? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNormally catching a bottom is not difficult. Bottoms tend to occur instantly while market tops form during a process. Yet, I’ve found that bottoms of long-term significance do not occur instantly. Like tops, they can take time to develop. For example, think about late 2008 to early 2009. Commodities hit their price low in December but the bottoming process began in October and wasn’t complete until May. Emerging markets hit their low in November but the process began in October and ended in March. Returning to the present, we see that Gold and Silver look set to retest their late December lows. Our work leads us to argue that the metals will successfully retest their lows and soon emerge from what in the future will be considered a major bottom in-line with 2008, 2005 and 2001.

Has the Silver Price Bottomed Yet? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Greece, the tin pot tail of Europe appears to wagging the economic dog of Europe at will as their inability to appoint a pro-austerity government has failed. This situation is further exasperated by France, with its newly elected 'no austerity' leader, stating that he will spend more now and not less in an attempt to boost economic activity if France. The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, is now toast after suffering a significant blow as voters in Germany's largest state rejected her austerity policies.

The Shortage of Arable Land and the Case for Agriculture and Farmland Investing / Commodities / Farm Land

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAdam Waldman writes: Whilst farmland investing may seem to some to be a bit of an exotic option, the reality is that there is an increasingly compelling case for adding this asset class to the alternative investments bucket of your portfolio.  One of the major reasons for our bullishness on farmland investment is the availability of quality farmland. As the graph below from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) clearly demonstrates, the amount of arable farmland has already shrunk and will continue to do so.

Gold Bugs Will be Vindicated / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Alasdair_Macleod

In recent weeks, while the eurozone has suffered escalating levels of systemic stress in government bond markets and its banking system, the gold price has fallen under $1,600. One would have thought that – but for the occasional fat-finger trade – gold would rise in all this instability, not fall. Putting aside short-term considerations, the simple reason has to be that the investment establishment, which has bought into the bond market bubble, does not believe that gold is any longer an alternative to paper money.

Do Eric Sprott and China Still Believe in Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

It has been a difficult week for precious metals, as gold and silver both experienced their lowest closes of the year. Gold futures settled at $1,594.20 per ounce on Wednesday, while silver futures finished at $29.18 on Thursday. They are also on pace for their worst weekly performance since December. However, several big name entities are still bullish on the safe-haven metals and believe the recent price action will reverse to end the year higher.

Commercials Gold Short Covering of Massive Short Positions, COT Report / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Marshall_Swing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommercials bought a huge 7,453 longs and covered a humongous -19,095 shorts to end the week with 56.67% of all open interest and now stand as a group at -15,145,500 ounces net short, a mammoth decrease of almost 1,500,000 ounces net short from the previous week. I hope you understand what they are doing here. They intend to go net long at some point in the near future as they know exactly what the future holds. They will maximize their profit to the fullest. They will take the price of gold down until they are either net long or fully long and have bought up every speculator long that they can. It is very important that you review last week's COT because in it, plus this last Wed - Fri trading days are the key to where the gold price is going and how it is going to get there.

The Yuan, Rupee and Physical Silver Demand / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina and India together account for a considerable amount of the current demand for physical silver. Each emerging market country has a strong base of support for silver from individual investors, who often purchase the physical metal as jewelry and bullion since it is thought to provide a more reliable store of value than the local currency.
