Corn and Canola, a Tale of Two Agricultural Markets / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith harvesters now beginning to move in parts of the U.S. the reality of the drought is now being recorded. Farmers face the loss of substantial income, and in many cases actual losses. Early estimate of losses by crop insurers is $30 billion(Financial Times, 27 August). Tax payers will be paying a significant portion of that loss. Crop insurance is the mechanism for insuring that farmers can plant a crop in April of 2013.

By: Peter_Zihlmann

Why You Should Invest in What China Needs to Buy / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. is no longer the safest place in the world to invest, says Don Coxe, a strategic advisor to the BMO Financial Group. While U.S.-based companies are forced to wade through red tape and legal challenges, relatively lax regulation in emerging economies created stiff competition. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Coxe explains how investors should position themselves as China and India rise to superpower status.

 

The Energy Report: You are famous for taking the long view of the political economy, Don. What does the machinery of history tell us about the likely future of the Western world as measured against the newly industrializing economies, including China, India and Brazil?

It's Game On for Rare Earth Metals in Greenland / Commodities / Rare Earths

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFar from icebound, Greenland is wealthy in rare earth elements, precious metals and oil. Already, says Aheadoftheherd.com owner Rick Mills, companies are beginning to outline major discoveries at just pennies a share. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Read more in this exclusive interview with The Critical Metals Report.

The Critical Metals Report: Let's start by talking about growth in developing nations, where populations are starting to demand the good things in life that we in the developed world have long enjoyed. That means continued growth in the commodity markets, specifically in mining. What are the implications of that?

The Gold Standard Gets Another Look / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Republicans convene in Tampa to nominate Mitt Romney and hammer out their party platform, one of the planks that could attract the most attention is the Party's official position on the gold standard. As it is now being considered, the platform stops short of recommending a return to the gold standard, but does advocate a commission to consider the possibility. However, judging by the reaction with which many Republicans have greeted the idea, one would think that the platform might as well have called for the return of slavery.

Ignore the Crude Oil 40 Doom-and-Gloom Crowd / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Kent Moors writes: I just returned from a week down South with a few of my energy clients. It's good to get my hands dirty and remind myself firsthand what is going on at the project level of some of the country's top energy companies.

But when I returned home this weekend, I made the mistake of flicking on the television and opening the newspaper.
I can't believe that the pundits are now predicting that oil will fall to $40 a barrel. They also are projecting that the entire natural gas sector is going to collapse.

Gold First Mover Advantage / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the Investor Alert, our investment team shares charts and data that we believe provide readers with a first mover advantage. While markets don’t always move like we anticipate, recognizing historical trends can provide an edge if you act quickly.

Last week, gold bugs were rewarded with the long-awaited positive momentum in the yellow metal, and on Friday, bullion rose to about $1,670. After falling below the 200-day moving average, gold had been stuck in quicksand for several months. With the jumps in the price last week, bullion swiftly rose above this critically important long-term moving average.

Why Gold Investors Should Fear the Financial System / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe dire economic situation that persists globally despite the best efforts of central planners to make things seem normal leads Sprott Inc.'s legendary Chairman Eric Sprott to broadcast a loud message of caution: "Fear the financial system." In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Sprott says it's time for people to take matters into their own hands and that means pushing further and further into precious metals equities as well as physical gold and silver. With 80% of his own portfolio in that arena, he certainly puts his money where his mouth is.

 

The Gold Report: You've stated before that the price of gold should be above $3,200/ounce (oz) and the price of silver above $200/oz but market manipulation keeps both metals artificially low. Who is manipulating it?

Is the Price of Silver Signaling the Next Monetary Supernova, or Will it be the Cause? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf the pricing in the world’s commodity and financial markets accurately reflected anything but the culmination of decisions made by high frequency trading systems, then the recent price action in the silver market might have something meaningful behind it. In an alternative parallel universe, the recent rally in silver might actually be ‘pricing in’ the next major monetary event.

Reasons Why China Wants Its Citizens to Own Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Due to China’s huge size, its developing economy is having a growing influence on the global economic system.  One commodity that has been particularly strongly affected by Chinese popular demand is silver and other precious metals like gold.

Not only has the Chinese government been moving toward holding precious metals in reserve as an alternative to paper currencies like the U.S. Dollar, but it has recently also encouraged its citizens to own precious metals as a way to store their wealth in a valuable physical asset.

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold Bull Run of 11 years is still happening; make no mistake about that. The fact that the USD gold price has held above the $1525 level is a strong indicator. Seasonal factors and other strong indicators tell me this long gold price consolidation period is nearing its conclusion at last. Gold has formed a new higher base from which it can launch higher.

Gold Stocks New Cyclical Bull Market Underway / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThree weeks ago we wrote that the short-term outlook in precious metals was bullish. Quoting our conclusion: "The bottom line is this sector is very close to a breakout which would likely confirm the May bottom. The price action has started to improve and the sector has not been deterred by the aforementioned bad news which, in normal conditions would have caused a selloff. In the meantime, the public has been bearish the entire year and the dumb money has started to exit the market. It is this combination of factors that lead us to a firm bullish posture over the rest of the summer." In terms of weekly closing prices, GDX and SIL closed last week at a four month high, while GDXJ closed last week at a three month high. Silver closed at a four month high while Gold closed at a five month high. From that it would seem that these markets are overbought. However, a quick study of the long-term charts, sentiment and valuations confirms that we are in an absolute sweet spot. Markets have bottomed, a new cyclical bull has begun and there is substantial room to move over the coming months and year.
